Stop The Gadhimai Animal Sacrifice Festival

    1. Petition by

      Nepals Bloody Shame

The campaign believes that the festival is an abuse of animals. The campaign would like Nepal to adopt slaughter-free religious festivals that can be enjoyed by many without the need to kill sentient beings. In 2009, over 200,000 animals were killed in two days and 250 butchers were brought in to carry out the killing that meant that each butcher would of killed 400 animals a day.

The problems that occured were knives becoming blunt, animals not being killed outright, the butchers who slaughtered the buffalo were half the body weight of the animal, and decapitation of a large animal not restrained is inhumane.

      In the name of religion one has no right to kill animals they are also the creation of Gods.. They have also have the same right to live there whole life..so one should not indulge himself in such kind of activities and boycott such events by spreading awareness around the temple area...
