India’s Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog (National Commission for Cows) and the Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) are working together to produce a drug using cow urine and dung that “will help develop highly intellectual children”.
According to ThePrint, the commission has claimed that pregnant women may be able to give birth to “smart, highly intellectual and healthy children” if they consume the drug regularly.
The drug will be made using cow urine, dung, milk, ghee and curd, the commission’s chairman, Vallabhbhai Kathiria, told the media outlet.
The cow commission was set up by Indian Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi’s government in February for the purpose of conservation and protection of cattle population in the country.
“Ministry of AYUSH and the newly-formed Ministry of Animal Husbandry will seek the cooperation of the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME)
in producing and marketing the drug,” the commission chairman was quoted as saying.
