The Holy Cow: Photo Series By Nayeem Siddiquee

The Holy Cow By Nayeem siddiquee

A Deep relationship has been made between cows and humans in this Indian sub-continent, no matter what the religion is people raise them like their children, care for them, and cry for their farewell. In the Indian sub-continent cows have been considered the purest animal from both major religions named Muslim and Hindu.

One religion worships them whereas another considers them to be pure for offering to the Almighty. Historical records suggest that both Hindus and Muslims have respectively viewed “cow protection” and “cow slaughter” as religious freedom. In modern cities, people may not depend on animals for livelihood but they still have to co-exist with them.
