Petition to Pakistan Government
Justice for animal cruelty!
A dog was killed in the area of Bunno or surroundings, sometimes after the election result of 2018 was announced in Pakistan. A losing party in PK89 of Adnan Khan Wazir, who was a ticket holder for qoumi watan party of Aftab Sherpao, tied an innocent dog to a tree, put a PTI flag around him and then shot him in the neck! The dog was screaming and howling in pain while these men stood around him, still pointing a gun at him. They were enjoying seeing him writher in pain. People like these are sadists and psychopaths. Under the cruelty to animal law they need to be punished! We want the government to take notice of this incident, help identify the murderers and punish them. We also want the government to make a database of all such sadists who enjoy hurting innocent animals. These people enjoy violence and won't just stop at harming animals. They are the very people who become terrorists, murderers and rapists. It is about time Pakistan realizes animal rights and punishes those who torture/harm animals in anyway. We as a country needs to be more compassionate! Please stand up against animal cruelty! Link to video: https://www.facebook.com/WhatisgoingoninPeshawar/videos/259803141484474/
Petition to Honourable Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar, Government Of Pakistan
Implementation of Laws to curb animal cruelty in Pakistan
This petition is in reference to a recent incident that is being shared on social media. A poor equine was subjected to abuse in a political rally to demonstrate hate towards a political party. According to Ayesha Chundrigar Foundation (ACF), the organisation that rescued the donkey after being informed of the incident by a citizen by the name of Abdullah, the baby donkey was beaten to a pulp, punched in the face and abdomen and then tied to a post and had a car rammed into him constantly. He continues to be in trauma post this incident which was reported today (July 16th 2018) https://en.dailypakistan.com.pk/pakistan/baby-donkey-nearly-beaten-to-death-in-karachi-by-political-workers-ahead-of-2018-polls/ This is one of countless such occurrences, many of which go unreported, due to the fact that not enough is being done to protect these poor animals from abuse of the most unspeakable kind. There aren't enough laws, or those which exist aren't being implemented. The fact that such incidents happen is proof in itself that no penalties are there for the perpetrators. This is an incident of extreme animal abuse, lesser versions of which are witnessed everyday on roads. For those of us who follow animal welfare and protection pages, and private organisations on social media which highlight such incidences and carry out rescues, we know that this isn't something new. Not much however is being done at the government level. Bills should be passed to include a subject on animal welfare in school curriculums in light of these cases of animal cruelty to instil compassion amongst students early as it is mostly children we see on the streets subjecting animals to abuse. Childhood cruelty to animals is said to be the first warning sign of later delinquency. There is a dire need to ingrain compassion in a society becoming dangerously desensitized to suffering. It is humbly requested that action be taken against the people who carried out this act so as to set a precedent for the future. It is requested humbly of the chief justice of Pakistan to take notice of this incident. Please sign this petition so action may be taken to do something about this issue.
Petition to Mr. Chen Wu, Peng Qinghua, Governor of Guangxi Autonomous Region, Chinese Embassy of India
Shut down Yulin festival permanently and save the cats (and dogs)!
Every year more than 10,000 cats and dogs are brutally butchered and eaten at Yulin "festival" en masse, otherwise known as Lychee and Dog Meat Festival, this takes place in a city called Yulin, located in Guangxi, China. Despite of all the protests from all over the world this inhumane festival is still not banned, local government officials say it is organised by private businesses and they are unable to prevent it. Yulin festival started officially in 2010 and has no cultural background whatsoever. While some of the Asian countries already eat dog and cat meat (the poor animals are kept in conditions unimaginable!) that is no excuse to get together and butcher these poor animals in broad daylight and eat them as if its some sort of a celebration. These terrified animals are cramped into filthy wire cages, denied food and water for days and are beaten up, tortured and finally killed by torching them or skinning them ALIVE! It is a popular belief that if the animal is tortured the meat tastes better. While a lot of organisations are working towards banning Yulin and the dog meat trade very little is being done for the cats. They suffer equally and its time we raise our voice, create awareness, protest, do whatever it takes to not only ban this so called festival but also rescue the animals from the slaughterhouses. This is not only extremely cruel and barbaric but questions the very humanity, such atrocity can not be tolerated in a civilised world that we live in. Some of the animals are even pets and are stolen from their homes. Can you imagine your pet cat (or dog) getting stolen just to be skinned alive or bludgeoned to death and eaten? The pictures of these poor cats (and dogs) cramped in cages or dragged out forcibly and skinned are sickening and grotesque. Cats are our friends and not "food", it seems unfathomable that some people see no ethical problem with consuming cats (and dogs, man's best friends). With more people educated on the issue, the pressure on Yulin to permanently cancel the dog eating festival may soon be successful. So please sign and share the petition.

Petition to Prime Minister of India, Envioment Ministry
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 BAN Cattle Sale for Slaughter at Cattle Fairs.
Petition to Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Ministry of Environment Forest & Climate Change
Dr Harsh Vardhan: End Cruelty to 46 Crore Battery Caged Hens in India
Imagine being confined in a small room with several other people with so little space that if you stretch your arms out, you would hit the side of the room or other people. Sounds uncomfortable and inhumane, doesn’t it? Well, 46 crore egg-laying hens in India live their entire lives in cages exactly like that - in a room where they don’t even have enough space to stand up straight or turn around. Battery cages are barren-wire cages that are stacked next to each other in an arrangement like batteries. Egg-laying hens are confined in battery cages, most prevalent in the egg production industry in India. In a battery cage, each hen is provided with space that is less than an A4 size sheet of paper – only about 450 square cms. And anybody who has held a sheet of paper in their hand knows that a hen is far larger than that. A typical egg farm contains thousands of cages, lined in multiple rows, stacked 3-5 tiers high with a minimum of 50,000 egg-laying hens in the farm. Battery cages prevent nearly all forms of natural behaviour of hens such as nesting, perching, roosting, scratching and foraging. These hens suffer from high-stress levels and poor health. Often, their claws painfully overgrow into the wires of the cage making it difficult for them to move. During ‘de-population’ for slaughter, it is normal practice to simply cut off the legs of birds whose claws are entangled in the cage wire. But these hens don’t have to be kept in these conditions. There are viable housing systems which allow the hens normal movement. Non-cage systems, known as aviary, barn or free-range production systems, may be single or multi-tiered with or without outdoor access. These systems are already in use across the world and have been recommended by the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) and the Law Commission. Support our petition to ask Dr Harsh Vardhan to end battery cage cruelty now. The Animal Welfare Board of India, in 2012, declared that battery cages are a violation of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, which aims to protect all animals. However, there has been little implementation. Since then, the Law Commission of India has recommended draft rules that provide some standards for housing laying hens. The High Court at Uttarakhand also recently prohibited the use of battery cages in the state, whereas the Delhi High Court prohibited the establishment of new battery cage systems for housing poultry. The Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change needs to listen! Battery cages need to be banned by the Government of India and the Egg-Laying Hens Rules must be notified. Sign this petition and urge the Hon’ble Minister for Environment, Forest & Climate Change to notify the draft rules recommended by the Law Commission. #EndBatteryCagesIndia#HensAreNotBatteries#HensNeedToMove#HensNeedToPerch#HensNeedToNest
Petition to Honourable President of India
Justice For Avni Save Avni's Cubs
A nation's voice went unheard. All the protests and marches, for Avni amounted to nothing. Finally those who had vested interests in murdering her succeeded, the reason being Maharashtra government is known to turn a blind eye to acres of forest land encroachment by industrialists, area as big as the size of Mumbai city itself. This is not something to be proud of, this is not an act of valor. This is nothing but sheer cowardice killing a defenseless unsuspecting animal by luring it with a bait and shooting from a safe distance, and for what. They did not defend anyone by doing this but those corrupt politicians, who stand to gain monetary benefits by allowing illegal encroachment of forest lands to industries. Official reports show 1500 sq kilometer of forest land has been lost to encroachment. So what was Avni's fault? Being confined to a small area, where she had to act in defense for her kids, having her natural habitat taken away from her and forced to roam around in those encroached lands which once used to be her home, or being born in a country where she is revered to be the national animal yet she will be shot to death to protect some peoples' interests. Despite all the efforts, all the protests, all the campaigns, if these brutes are posing for photo with her dead body as if they won a war, they did not win, but we lost. We lost in saving a mother, saving our national animal, protecting an animal that has been driven out of its natural habitat and cornered, and most of all saving ourselves from this national shame. Now they are on the hunt for the 10-month old cubs whom they claim are man eaters too. Let us all join hands to bring the perpetrators who killed Avni to justice, and to save her cubs from being killed by the same team. #JusticeforAvni #SaveAvni'sCubs
Petition to Animal lovers and wildlife rescuers, Commissioner of Police, Gurgaon, Gurgaon Police
Make Haryana Police take action against politician Mahesh Dayma for harassing animal lover
Haryana Police has to stand up for citizen's rights and take action against Mahesh Dayma, a local goon and a member of Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG), who regularly harasses and beats up animal lovers for feeding and caring for stray dogs. Mahesh Dayma gets his local gang members to harass stray animals and monkeys in Gurgaon and also cuts trees and destroys the environment so that he can get votes from the RWAs and society residents by pleasing them. He has manhandled many animal lovers and thrashed them when he saw them giving medicine and food to the stray animals. When asked why he does this, he replied illogically "Stray animals are a nuisance and their population is increasing and they bite children so we should not feed them". Well, isn't it the job of the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) of which he is a member, to sterilize and care for the local stray dogs, cows, and other animals to control their population and keep them healthy so that human-animal conflict is minimized. We petition the Government of Haryana and the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon and the Commissioner of Police, Gurgaon to take strict action against Mahesh Dayma for manhandling, threatening, harassing and beating animal lovers who care for the environment by doing a noble act of caring for the stray animals in Gurgaon. Firstly, people do not come to complain against him due to his position and if someone does then the case is suppressed. Some people have mustered the courage and filed police complaints against Mahesh Dayma, but no concrete action has been taken against him, due to the lackadaisical attitude of authorities. If all animal lovers stopped giving food, doing sterilization to keep the population in check and treating the stray animals, then the problem would increase rather than get solved. We urge police to take strict and fair action against Mahesh Dayma in police complaint no. 13227104071800131 and many other similar cases which have been suppressed. Animals Lovers and People of Gurgaon - Unite against this evil man or he will destroy the environment and kill and harm more humans and animals. #FightEvil Animals Lovers and People of Gurgaon - Unite against this evil man or he will destroy the environment and kill and harm more humans and animals. #FightEvil #Stand4animalrights #CRUSADE4ANIMALS
