Cow Mata is Over Protected, Other gods are ignored.

The Gods of Hinduism- VAYU DEV is known as the god of air while the cow is designated as holy in Hinduism since arrival to Aryan who basically brought/ spread the Vedic religion during the writing period of Rig-Veda 1500 BCE.

Vāyu (Sanskrit वायु, Sanskrit pronunciation: [ʋaːju]) is a primary Hindu deity, the lord of the winds, the father of Bhīma and the spiritual father of Hanuman according to various scriptures.  Second deity which has become important all of sudden and makes constant headlines is the Holy Cow. Millions of Hindus revere and worship cows. Hinduism is a religion that raises the status of any giver to the level of Goddess. Therefore, the cow is considered a sacred animal, as it provides us life sustaining milk. Not only that the belief is that in cow’s body every god/goddess live, therefore to serve a cow will sustain life, and perhaps earth too. Till this point everything remained fine. However, the cow is given too much attention and the air is ignored- the reason is simple.
 Answers to ‘Why’?
The obsession of protecting other gods like - Mother Earth, River goddess and the god of air etc is ignored. The reason is simple- Religious minds will not get people from other communities to kill if they pay attention to the purification the air. Religious Sentiments are always right without any evidence.
The mob lynching has been into wind and people killed people from other religious communities because of a rumor that victims dared to eat beef. 
Words of Caution- Indians are obsessed with English even if they don't understand the meaning of it exactly. So to threaten them you just need to say beef- they understand that the beef means the cow meat. They don't understand and neither have a possibility to understand that --Beef is the culinary name for meat from cattle, particularly skeletal muscle. Humans have been eating beef since prehistoric times.
People are so primitive due to religious sentiments that they deny simple plain respectable truth and make people criminal among every religious community. Now animals have a religion- The cow is Hindu, The goat is Muslim.
What does the law say?
Directive principles of state policy protected cows- in 4th part of the Indian Constitution. Directive Principle meant-- certain principles to government to rule. These principles are inspired by Maharaja Gandhi where due to religious sentiments he wanted cow to be protected. However, Gandhi was not harmful religious he was indeed one among the great man and my inspiration.
So, government thinks that because of curbing sale on cow it protected cows? 
I went to villages of UP and had chances of interacting with people. What did they tell me about it? All the calves, bulls, and even cows were left open without any price and free into jungles available for people who wanted to eat because they were not able to bear expenses of it. Cow has low fat in milk and expensive in maintenance. After government tightened the rules for cattle sale, what happened in practicality?
 I wish that religious people do understand that protecting cow did not help in reducing pollution, instead it made people criminals who killed in the name of it. What is the point of those 33 Crores gods who reside in the body of cow, they could not protect the cows either?
Air quality is deteriorating and improving it will save more lives and the earth. However, there will be less chances of killing in name of religion because when it comes to pollution - all religious communities think that the water, air and everything is forever granted to them by their god. 
Note-  Like terrorism, Mob lynching also has got nothing to do with religion.
