- I’m writing to you from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India on behalf of our more than two million members and supporters to request that you delete Section 28 of The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, which allows any animal to be killed in any manner for religion,’ PETA India chief executive officer Manilal Valliyate said in a letter to the prime minister “
- “We hope you will agree that Section 28 is an aberration in the land of ‘ahimsa’, ‘karuna’, and, increasingly, modern technology and where Article 51A(g) of the Constitution of India requires compassion for all living creatures,’
- PETA pointed out that many states and Union Territories, including Gujarat, Kerala, Puducherry, Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana, have prohibited animal sacrifice in any place of public religious worship
- This demonstrates that progressive steps are needed towards implementing a similar prohibition throughout India, which could easily be achieved by deleting Section 28 from the PCA Act of 1960, it said.
- Compassion and love are universal messages at the core of all religions, and no religion teaches or encourages cruelty to animals or requires meat eating. In order to give animal welfare the scope it deserves and to ensure that our animal protection laws reflect modern society, we beseech your good office to remove the outdated exemption for animal sacrifice under Section 28,” PETA said.
- Peta India also sent letters to police chiefs of all state governments and union territories, urging them to take precautionary measures to stop illegal practices in transport and killing of animals ahead of Eid al-Adha.
Is it Possible
- “Even though the PCA Act gives an exemption for animal sacrifice, such practices often stand in contradiction to the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, which protects indigenous wild species from hunting and capture,” said Peta India.
