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.

Petition to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)


The most beautiful thing in the world is to hear a bird chirping and twittering around us.But nowadays the birds are dying due to electromagnetic radiation. This radiation is created by high tension wires and cell phone towers. Ornithologists say birds may be killed over the course of a few years. Ornithology is a branch of zoology that concerns the study on birds. For the sake of birds, we must live in a better manner; if the number of birds decreases, then we too end up dying soon. How? Many species of birds eat little insects or worms, saving food crop. It is even believed that the rain comes to a particular place, in preparation for coming of migrated birds. The harmful effects of radiation and other electrical units on birds are precisely perceived. Some years ago, the ‘Green city’ of India, Chennai, woke up to a rude shock: numerous birds were found dead. In Chennai, there are nearly 4,000 cellphone towers. In Chandigarh, there are nearly 200. The ill-fated city of Chennai had killed a huge number of its birds to the deadly effects of EMR (Electromagnetic Radiation) emitted by both cell phones, and their towers. It should be remembered that birds’ brains are equipped with the power of navigation during flight. But when the radiation attacks their mind, they become confused. navigate incorrect, and suffer the unbearable pain of radiation. Some might fall out of the sky, dead. Some months ago, there was a big and continuous experiment of 5G network in a city in Netherlands. It killed hundreds of birds there. EMR or electromagnetic radiation can destroy the birds eggs and embryos. The huge reduction of house sparrow populations,  red-whiskered bulbul, brahminy kite, and the spotted dove and many more  is alarming. But we can stop it. Whenever possible we can minimize our phone call time and try to use texting to communicate  The government can also take down the towers which emit more emr than the limit and they can also make a maximum tower limit in a city . For example no more than 200 towers in small cities and no more than 500 towers in big cities SAVE BIRDS SAVE EARTH

Petition to Peta India, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Prakash Javadekar, Chief Minister of Telangana, K. Chandrasekhar Rao

Justice for the stray dogs poisoned in Telangana

Is this country only for the people who live here? Where are the stray dogs and cat going to live and what if their population multiplies? Is it because, we humans have the brains and power, who gave us the power to destroy them? The people in India, know that the stray dogs and cats live alone wandering here and there for food. While, in some parts of the country people are to be applauded for showing kindness by feeding the animals, there are some regions and even states in India where the locals are taking the matter of killing these stray dogs in hands and it is very disheartening as well as disgusting. On 23 June, 2019 hundreds of stray dogs were poisoned by the Telangana municipal staff. It is really a horrifying incident in which municipality staff in Vikarabad town, 75 km from Hyderabad, poisoned more than 100 stray dogs and burnt their bodies at a garbage dump outside the town.  A video went viral, in which a sobbing animal activists who was taking the video emerged out in the social media sites and it would give you a sickening feeling of revulsion and loathing for the people involved in this mass killing of the innocent stray dogs. The man in the video is seen throwing recklessly the carcasasses of the killed dogs into the dumpyard. All he said in the video is that "He is just following the orders." Click to get the: Image of the dead dogs Hands are tied up and lips are shut, people of today only know how to click their tongues and none has the mouth to open and speak about this matter.  The Municipality of Telangana clearly took the easiest way of decreasing the multiplying of the breed by simply poisoning them, which is truly disgusting and the fact that they even ignored PETA ABC.  To put it straight, here are some rules in India for the animals: 1.To kill or maim any animal, including stray animals, is a punishable offence. IPC Sections 428 and 429. 2. Abandoning any animal for any reason can land you in prison for up to three months. Section 11(1)(i) and Section 11(1)(j), PCA Act, 1960. 3. Stray dogs that have been operated for birth control cannot be captured or relocated by anybody including any authority. ABC Rules, 2001. 4. Neglecting an animal by denying her sufficient food, water, shelter and exercise or by keeping him chained/confined for long hours is punishable by a fine or imprisonment of up to 3 months or both. Section 11(1)(h), PCA Act, 1960. But it seems people now a days, like to violate each and every rules and it comes up even the municipality is violating the government's rule standing as an example for the people who kill these innocent animals for fun. The question is who is going to speak out for these violent act of the Municipality of Telangana and how are they going to be punished for this.  Please sign this petition to bring this horrifying crime of the people involved in this dreadening act in attention and forcing the authorities to take necessary actions for this crime to give Justice to those hundreds of stray dogs who died mercilessly in the hands of those cruel human beings. In the end, all these dogs wanted was love. They even wagged their tails and ate those poisoned food trusting the human who gave them that poisoned food inwardly taking an oath that "I shall remain faithful to this wonderful human being for the rest of my life, for giving me some FOOD." Click to get the: Carcass of the stray dogs thrown like a rag doll, an example of how cruel a human being can be.
