Support Govt Decision to BAN Cattle Sale for Slaughter at Cattle Fairs/Markets

Inhumane torture of cattle, from the cattle markets to the slaughterhouses in India is a spine chilling reality. IIn most of the Indian states slaughter of cow & it's progeny including calves is banned, yet we find a large number of cattle brutally stuffed into trucks and illegally smuggled out of such places and into states where cow slaughter is permitted or ineffective. And this thriving industry is run by the Cattle Mafia, who buy the cattle from various cattle fairs/markets, stuff them in trucks and lead them to their brutal deaths. Cows,buffaloes,ox and baby calves are forced to tread hundreds of miles without food or water . Cattle is beaten mercilessly and driven forward in the searing Indian heat. Their tails broken deliberately, while tobacco and chili pepper rubbed into their eyes forcing them to stand up when they crumble. While their hooves bleed. When transported by truck, cattle suffer unimaginable pain because of overcrowding. Stuffed into trucks, on top of each other, they experience extreme suffocation, trample upon each other, and many a times gouging and blinding the other with their horns, due to lack of space. During unloading, if they have survived the brutal drive, they are then pulled out or forced to jump from the high truck onto the ground, often resulting in breaking their legs and pelvis. Many of them die due to suffocation during transportation in overcrowded trucks. To curb this illegal transportation and unending torture of animals, the Central Govt. has passed an order, that cattle for slaughter cannot be bought from ‘agricultural markets’. The rule mandates the appointment of Veterinary inspectors who shall screen the animals before they enter the market. The inspector shall also check whether animals are being transported in trucks which are authorized by law to carry animals. Still there is no restriction on legal option of a person buying these directly from the farms. Dhyan Foundation supports this order passed by the Central Govt to Ban the Sale of Cattle through Cattle Markets.This order offers respite to the voiceless animals, from the endless torture & cruelty that is inflicted upon them at these cattle markets. . Please sign this petition and support the Central Goverment's HUMANE decision.

Shelter for Dogs on streets

The dogs on street are part of society and our inherent civilization yet every day they suffer from the nuisance of crippling vehicles, stones throw by people, acid poured on them, beaten to death, shot at by guns in residential areas and being abandoned to fend for themselves. Its cruelty practiced every state, city, street and house. All they need is food and some secure boundaries so they can play within and can be protected from the busy roads and people.  I say this coz I hear read and see so may of these wonderful companions suffering for no reason at all but due to sheer negligence and lack of responsibility on our part as society. Merely 2 month pup crippled for her life with both hind legs not working coz someone ran over her. Merely 5 month old puppy shot at by pellet gun and crippled for life (both hind legs damaged) with deep wounds that are yet to close since last 8 months. Some Being tied on all fours and mouth tight shut with rope to be dumped at some other place carried away hanging on a danda coz they were blamed to have bitten someone in your society or coz they bark. I have personally been with so many dogs and never suffered at one's bite. Some cases do happen but only when they feel thretened just like you would react when you are scared.  Its just not normal with the no. Of accident cases and cruelty met to such innocent and voiceless souls. Please urge our state goverments to set up shelters for all street dogs in every district with best of veterinary facilities and awareness programmes for schools and societies (RWAs).

Justice for 14 Puppies and their 2 Mothers who were buried alive in Dhaka for Nothing

Last Week a night guard has beaten horribly two mother dog,  then tied them with rope and finally buried alive along with their 05 days old 14 puppies together at Rampura in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The puppies were packed in a sack after breaking their bones and the mother dogs were also brutalised and dumped in a hole already dug up. Night guard Siddique buried the dogs alive and then filled the cavity with earth. The night guard was acting upon instructions of Bagichartak Welfare Association’s officials. Some how the news came in focus to some animal right activists and three voluntary organization named CFP, PAW and ALB jointly asked for a march with other animal right activists in Bangladesh to the spot. They marked the spot and started to dig. Finally the corpse of two female dog and a sack was recovered. And when Zahid Hussain from CFP opened the sack, shockingly corpse of 14 puppies came out.  A case has been filed and all the bodies have been send for post-mortem. But law for animal cruelty in Bangladesh is outdated. The highest punishment is only 3 Euro fine that dosen't make any sense. Animal abuse or cruelty should be treated as serious offense. Lack of a strong law against animal cruelty, such mindless brutalities are becoming very common day by day in Bangladesh because of not having any strict law by the government. People by nature are violent on street dogs mostly because of the lack of humanly education, social disorder and religious superstitions. We demand justice from the government on this case and also demanding to impose a more updated and strict law for any kinds of animal cruelty.
