Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, November 20, THfc j..f, H Moustache punishment works wonders By RAM SUNDAK CP Correspondent BOMBAY (CP) Police in the Mehsana area of India's Gujarat state have at last found an effective way to stop illegal grazing. When policemen find cows, sheep, water-buffalos and other farm animals grazing outside their territory, they arrest their owners and shave off their moustache. The punishment is working wonders for the police machinery. Complaints of il- legal grazing have dropped by 75 per cent in several farming areas.

According to a Gujarati-lan- guage proverb, "a man without a big moustache should hide behind his grand- ma's clothes." Mehsana shepherds and cattle-men have protested the police action strongly. They propose to launch a state-wide agitation if the "humiliating punishment" is not stopped. Bijol Rabari, a cattle-owner who lost his carefully- nurtured moustache at a police station, told reporters that "the police have become a law unto themselves." Police officials in Mehsana said that Rabari's cattle had been invading farms of land- lords, eating up crops and damaging fields. According to the United Press of India news agency, 65 cattle owners in Kadi village had their moustache shaved off. A delegation of shepherds and cattle owners went to Ahmedabad. the state capital, to complain to the governor und the police chief about "police misbehavior When they could not meet the VlPs. the complainants went to the headquarters of the ruling Congress Party to lodge a strongly-worded protest The wives of Mehsana shep- herds are also up in arms against the police action against the moustache sym- bols sewing machine spectacular Save on clothing cpsts with a Kenmore sewing machine Spectacular selection of portables and combinations Save Here's what this Kenmore can dcr QQ99 Reg.
