Ban Animal Sacrifice at Yadnya Kasada Festival

This petition had 1,105 supporters

The controversial Yadnya Kasada is a Hinduistic  festival  which lasts about a month, every year. On the 14th day of the Kasada, the local Tengger people  go to their holy place, Poten Bromo to ask for blessings the God of the Mountain (Mount Semeru).They do bring offers which is very typical for Hinduism but the offers depend of the status of the worshiper. They often bring rice, fruit, vegetables, flowers but also live  farm animals and all they consider as useful to bring God's mercy.The problem is live  animal sacrifice when they throw away live animals into the volcano craters trying to feed the mountain God. The others inside are trying to catch the offers for good luck. This must be stopped. Animals arent our ownership so we can abuse them. The 21st century and age of space exploration must prevail over back-warded customs.
