Increasing Fines and Punishments for Animal Cruelty

According to The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, you can get away with being cruel to most animals by paying a fine of anything between Rs 10 and Rs 50 ! If you repeat the offence within three years, the penalty may go up to anything between Rs 25 and Rs 100 and in the rarest circumstances you will be thrown into jail for 3 months. This law has not been updated since 1960. A nation which is home to the greatest number of animal lovers and one of the greatest number of pet owners such preposterous and weak legislature is appalling. It must become a priority task of our newly elected MPs (Members of Parliament) to update the fines and punishments DRASTICALLY for such cruel and heartless crimes. Be the voice for the innocent and voiceless. IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE. In 2016, several MPs and celebrities had launched the #NoMore50 campaign for increasing fines and punishments for animal cruelty. However, we never saw this campaign come to life as part of Indian, binding law. Please bring forth an amendment in the Lok Sabha in order to majorly increase the fines and punishments mentioned in 'The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960'. Oh and yes, we do hope that MPs of the Rajya Sabha place politics aside and endorse this amendment as well considering no party has majority in the Rajya Sabha yet. Help us make a change for the innocent and voiceless.

Save our animals from being killed for food because every living being has right to live

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE: Every life matters. Be it a dog or a cow or a lizard or even an insect. We pet a dog and kill a cow. Does it seem right? Love all animals.  When we kill any animal, we are depriving it of the rest of its existence, which could also have been a happy, good existence, so why deprive it just because we want to eat some meat when you've got other healthy, nutritious, delicious things that you could also eat?  It is time we take responsibility for life we kill, directly or indirectly, it doesn't matter. When everyone stops eating meat, meat companies will automatically stop breeding animals for slaughter. Although we are not directly killing them but they are killed to feed people like us. People should stop playing the blame game.  Although it has been proved that plants have life they lack consciousness and don't feel fear or pain. But there is anatomical evidence that animals feel pain the same way humans do. People should stop killing animals just to satisfy their taste buds. They have the right to live a life on earth same as we do. It is time we take responsibility for life we kill, whether directly or indirectly, it doesn't matter. Although animals are not killed directly by us, we are encouraging others to do the dirty job for us. When everyone stops eating meat, meat companies will automatically stop breeding animals for slaughter. So we should stop playing the blame game.  If we look at the brains and neural pathways in cattle, and compare them to humans, there are massive similarities. The amygdala, the cerebellum, the thalamus which are all involved in processing pain in us, are all found in cattle. "People used to justify eating meat for biological reasons: we are omnivores, our incisors are designed to eat meat, this is a natural thing for us to do". The problem is there are many natural things that are not right for us to do, and the biological features are irrelevant to the question of how we ought to live our lives. Those who want to kill animals and eat them ought to justify their view. We should feel empathetic for their suffering. Millions of such poor innocent animals are killed mercilessly for people like us. Each and human contribution matters. Let's hope to create a peaceful way of living for generations to come devoid of harming any animals for our satisfaction. Let's begin to care for all beings like we care for our children. SPREAD LOVE.SAVE ANIMALS. SAVE PLANET.

Punish the culprit

I’m against all who keep saying that India is not changing.It’s changing,it’s developing.Unfortunately, it is changing in a disgusting manner.There is land but,no trees.There is space but,no animals.There are humans but,no humanity.This is very unfortunate but this is the only fact. Humans have crossed their limit.People can be the worst. And a man from Mumbai has gone out of his way to prove this fact by beating a dog.I recently read a post by John Abhrahm and it disturbed me completely.Please support me. Read these words by John Abhrahm: Dear Friends of Animals..this is with reference to the case of the poor dog being beaten almost to death on July 24th 2019 under the instructions of a Mr Bhatia... residing on the 2nd floor of Turf View building, next to Vitesse showroom, Nehru Planeterium. The building manager Suryakant Kaushik has been instructed by Mr Bhatia to beat up all animal lovers as well. He instructed 3 of his building security to beat the dog to pulp and throw the body across the street. There is CCTV footage of this being done and an FIR has been filed.... but Mr Bhatia and the security are scot free. As people who care for animals...WE ARE THEIR VOICE..There is a gathering at Turf View building this Tuesday 30th of July at 7pm to speak out against these cruel people. Please bring your BANNERS to tell Mr Bhatia and the building security that what they have done will not be tolerated and is totally unforgivable. Please gather all on Tuesday on behalf of the voiceless at 7pm, Turf View, Worli. The poor dog is critical and fighting for life. Pass this message on... � I apologize for posting something so disturbing but the need of the hour is to protect these beautiful animals. And for people who do not like animals, at least please do not hurt them. Please support me to punish all those who did this shameful act.

Petition to Mr. Ramesh Pokhriyal, Mr. Narendra Modi

Make Humane education as a mandatory subject in Indian schools

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” On 24th July 2019,Times Of India reported of a man residing in a posh colony of Bombay,instructing his society guards to beat up a stray dog just because he was seeking shelter from the rain so that no other animal could dare to come in.The dog named Lucky,is critical and is struggling for his life in the hospital.  https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/dog-brutally-thrashed-for-seeking-shelter-from-rain-inside-worli-building/articleshow/70421891.cms Rising intolerance of humans towards animals is concerning.Humanity is dying a slow death.Thus,it is the need of the hour to sensitize our future generation,so that they grow sensitive and humane towards voiceless creatures,so that no more  innocent lives are sacrificed. Humane education is a method of teaching and training that aims to foster particularly in young people, a sensitivity towards all living creatures and the environment that we share with them. It stimulates moral development, promotes empathy towards people, kindness towards animals and concern for the environment and the importance of interdependence of all the species and their environment. Schools in India should introduce Humane Education as a mandatory subject in the  curriculum,inculcating sensitivity towards other living beings, spreading awareness on Animal Rights,their needs and our duty as Humans towards them. Join us in introducing this subject as part of curriculum to promote a co-existing world for both Humans and Animals alike. Stop animal abuse, save our animals.
