RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat today pitched for protection of cows, but disapproved of going against law in the name of such vigilantism.
The Sangh head also said, "We have to reject the double-speak as there is no talk of violence by cow smugglers."
He was replying to questions on cow vigilantism and mob lynching.
