Not only that, there are people who stand guards to protect cows. While this may need to be regularized in a way it doesn’t create communal hatred, it is undoubtedly an act of intelligence to do something to protect cows. Protecting cows directly translates in protecting the planet.

Whatever is produced of the complete whole is also complete in itself. Because He is the complete whole, even though so many complete units emanate from Him, He remains the complete balance.” (Sri Isopanishad, Invocation)
