A Hindu group hosted a cow urine drinking party on Saturday as they believe it wards off the coronavirus, as many Hindus consider the cow sacred and some drink cow urine believing it has medicinal properties.
The group of worshippers known as Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (All India Hindu Union) had the party in Delhi, the country’s capital, on Saturday.The Hindu, an Indian media outlet, reports that the event, known as “gaumutra party” attracted many in queues as the substance was poured from kettles into small cups — referred to as “kulhads”.

The party reportedly began with prayers to the cow and then to coronavirus, asking it to leave peacefully and not kill more people.

Swami Chakrapani, the president of the group, said coronavirus was caused by a deity that has come to punish those who consume meat.

“Coronavirus has come because of the people who kill and eat animals. When you kill an animal, it creates a sort of energy that causes destruction in that place,” Chakrapani said.

“Global leaders should get cow urine imported from India because the almighty resides only in the Indian cow and not in any foreign breed.

“I request all the presidents and prime ministers of the world to take cow urine on a daily basis. You have all these scientists who don’t know the cure, we have the cure given to us by the gods.”

It is believed that many Hindus consider the cow to be sacred, including some members of the Hindu nationalist party, who had earlier advocated that cow urine and dung be used to treat the coronavirus.

“We have been drinking cow urine for 21 years, we also take a bath in cow dung. We have never felt the need to consume English medicine,” Reuters quoted one attendee to have said.

The event comes a day after Narendra Modi, India’s prime minister, addressed leaders of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) nations, even as the number of coronavirus cases touched 107 in the country.

“We recognise we are in an unknown situation and can not predict with certainty how the situation will unfold further. It will be most valuable for all us to share our perspectives,” said the PM on Friday.

Despite claims about the “cow urine drinking” practice, medical experts have repeatedly warned that cow urine does not cure illnesses like cancer and there is no evidence that it can prevent coronavirus.
