Trolled on social media, Cow exhales oxygen: Rajasthan education minsiter

News Hour:

After the Dadri lynching incident, cow vigilantism has been on an all-time high. We know who to thank for this!

Meanwhile, BJP politician and Rajasthan Education Minister Vasudev Devnani, in an attempt to put the ‘holy cow’ on a pedestal, said that cow is the only animal that inhales as well as exhales oxygen.

While speaking at the Hingonia Goshala, during an event organised by the Akshay Patra foundation on Saturday, he said “Gai ekmatra prani hai jo oxygen grahan karta hai, aur oxygen hi chodta hai (the cow is the only animal that takes in oxygen and also releases oxygen)”.

“There is a need to understand the scientific significance of the cow and ensure that the message reaches all people”, the minister went on to say.

Let us make it clear.

Cows don’t exhale oxygen.

In fact, a single cow, on an average, releases anywhere between 70 to 120 kilogram Methane per year. Methane, a greenhouse gas, is 23 times harmful than carbon dioxide.

To give you a perspective, the 100-kg Methane a single cow releases in a year is equivalent to 2,300-kg carbon dioxide released per year and this is the amount of carbon dioxide generated by burning 1000 litres of petrol.

So it’s even safe to say that cows pollute the environment more than cars.
