Bhopal, May 18, 2021: As Madhya Pradesh battles a crushing second wave of Covid-19 and rising cases of black fungus, Bhopal MP Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur has advised people to consumer gau mutra (cow-urine) of a desi (Indian) cow for its benefit in fighting lung infections, and plant trees like peepal and tulsi to prevent oxygen shortage.
Pargya made the statement on Sunday while addressing a gathering at Sant Nagar, where she had come to donate 25 oxygen concentrators to Hedgewar hospital. Speaking at the event, Pragya blamed ‘people of devious mindset’ for damaging the environment and cutting trees, which, she said, has given rise to such a situation. “We should plant trees like Neem, Banyan, Tulsi, Peepal and other plants that give out oxygen 24 hours. Had we planted these trees, we wouldn’t have faced these problems today. If someone is responsible for today’s situation, then it is such people,” said Thakur.
And as ‘repentance’, she urged people to pledge to plant trees. Every family should plant 10 trees in the name of their family members and nurture them and give them life, she added. “Hum unhe khaad de, paani de, jeevan de toh nishchit roop se wo humein jeevan deenge aur oxygen ki trahi-trahi nahi machegi (We have to give them fertiliser, water and bring them to life, they will give us life in return and there will be no panic-like situation for oxygen),” said Thakur.
She herself pledged to plant one crore trees in Bhopal and provide water tankers for its irrigation, explaining that it is easier to plant trees than to nurture them.
Thakur then went on to enumerate the benefits of drinking the urine of a ‘desi cow’. Thakur said, “If we drink gau mutra of a desi cow, it cures us of the infections in our lungs. I am in a lot of pain but I drink gau mutra everyday. Because of this, I don’t have to take any medicines for corona and neither am I infected with corona and with god’s blessings, it will remain so as I am taking the right kind of medicines (gau mutra).”
She explained that she consumes gau mutra after offering prayers saying, “Aap hamare liye amrut ke swaroop hai, mein aapko grahan kar rahi hu. Aap mere bheetar ki raksha kare kyu ki mera jeevan rashtre ke liye hai (you are like amrit to me, I am consuming you. Please protect me because my life is for the nation),”
Pragya Singh Thakur has been facing allegations of being absent in Covid relief from her constituency of Bhopal, which is the district with the second highest case load in MP. Several posters stating ‘Pragya Singh Thakur has gone missing’ had surfaced in Bhopal last month and many others had questioned her absence from her constituency. She, however, stated that she had been providing all help while operating from her office, and her ‘only mistake’ was that she failed to publicise her work on social media.
