This research paper is intended to expound on the evolution i.e. historical facets and the contemporary position of the rationale behind beef laws across the globe. The author intends to provide its readers with an assiduous understanding of the religious sentiments analogous with cattle slaughter across the nation. India being a multilingual and democratic welfare nation, the rule of law here commands for the welfare of the citizens and the country at large. Cattles, being a highly important economic medium both alive and in its meat form, creates perplexity as to what serves for the better economic growth. The author also intends to dive deep into the constitutional validity of the administrative and executive discretions exercised in so far as beef laws are in question. India, aims towards unified legal statutes and governance, however the author has drawn analogies which pose a little doubt, so far as uniformity is concerned in matters of cattle slaughter. The paper comes to a gradual halt, after the cattles slaughter laws have been described concisely keeping the religious doctrines at par followed by administration retaliation by probing into contemporaneous judgments. Adequate international references have also been drawn to give a holistic view on the subject. The author, at the culmination stage, has come up with a bunch of humble recommendations that have been gathered after extensive research with an aim to provide its readers with an insightful and enriching learning experience.
