And I am 76 years today, but I have no ailments. I am a live example (of this),” Vegad said.
The Gujarat MP even vouching for its efficacy, and said that cow urine could treat cancer in the “first or second stage”, and he had witnessed it after his father was cured.

While going a mile further, Javed Ali Khan, added that Narendra Modi has ‘hugged’ permiers of various countries who eat beef, including the US President Donald Trump and the Israeli PM.
He stressed that the Government of India should snap ties with all those countries which consume beef.
“We should warn these leaders from the US and Israel that if you love us, love our culture also. Why should we be friends with the US? If you eat beef, then you are our enemy. If you trade in beef, then you are our enemy,” The Express report quoted Khan.
