Petition to Mr. Utpal Kumar Singh, Shri Trivendra Singh Rawat

Save our homeless furry friends in Uttarakhand.

Petition made by the animal lovers and activists including youngsters of Uttarakhand, India, against a very vague ruling by the High Court of Uttarakhand it is as follows-Uttarakhand high court on Thursday directed the state government to ensure there are no stray dogs on the roads of the Himalayan state within a period of six months starting from month of July 2018The high court also noted that the state government may consider framing a law to kill “dangerous stray dogs”.The PIL (Public interest litigation} filed by an advocate highlighted the issue of increasing dog menace in the state. It said in the past five years, over 11,000 dog bite cases have been reported in a tourist place ‘Nainital’ itself which is false and baseless made up story.First of all who will determine 11000 bites in 5 years in Nainital I.e around 3500 bites in one year !!! Is it not a huge amount of bites!!! Do u have the evidence following bites records ...After all the grieving people would have gone to govt hospitals and got injections fir where are the records of 11000 bites in five years !!! ....This is all made up news made by dog haters who are concerned with tourism and concerning business people who don't want dogs around them !! The court directed the chief secretary to issue necessary directions to all authorities concerned to take appropriate steps for checking the dog menace in their respective areas. The court also made it clear that the directions issued by the chief secretary will be binding on all authorities, including municipal bodies and other local bodies. It was further said by the High Court that the dogs who are homeless should not be seen on roads within six months, that they should be adopted by charitable organizations. The High Court further said that a law be framed to kill the stray dogs who are on roads can be further killed if dangerous! That those having objections can take them home! The high court said the non-compliance of the directions issued by the chief secretary to the local authorities will be treated as a contempt of court.This is obviously a very serious matter, and all the dog lovers animal activists,NGOs along with should unite and stop this cruel ruling of “killing” stray dogs just because they have grown in number. Dogs are man’s bestfriend” and I don’t think this is a way to treat our bestfriendHonourable Supreme court of our country India has protected stray dogs saying no one can kill or maim them . It is simply not understood why any high court will go against supreme court , also shows inhumane behaviour while asking the state to make a rule to killing 'dangerous dogs' ...A dog hater will find any dog dangerous !!! So all strays left out without shelter should be killed ??? Unless they are not rabied they have a right to live as per Hon Supreme CourtDogs being man's best friend is also a guard of the colonies , a saviour in army , a sniffer to detect bombs and save lives in airports and tourist places , even stray dogs are being admitted and trained in army ...there are dogs who relieve serious patients in hospitals , a blind man's companion , a lone person's joy , babies delight !!!Dog haters can spoil everything and would want the best friend of human to die.So please sign the petition and join with us in the movement against killing of the wonderful man's best companion. This petition would be presented to all officials who matter and can save our dogs of Uttarakhand!

Petition to Ministry of Environment & Forests

WITHDRAW VERMIN status allotted to Monkeys in Himachal Pradesh and PREVENT their culling

As humans and as responsible citizens and government, it is our moral obligation to look after animals in our purview and not kill them simply because we have destroyed the forests for our convenience and now find it easier to kill them than to provide for them. Killing them is not a solution, it is only opening doorways to graver problems for which all will have to pay. "In exercise of the powers conferred by section 62 of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972 (53 of 1972), the Central Government, hereby declares Rhesus Macaque (Macaca mulatta) be vermin for inclusion in Schedule V of the said Act, for a period of one year from the date of publication of this notification," said the Environment Ministry's notification.The notification's premise was that the state has reported damage to life and property including large scale destruction of agriculture by this species in areas outside forest. While on the dreaded day, Monkeys were declared 'Vermin', their POACHING, ABUSE, TORTURE, ILLEGAL & BRUTAL CAPTURE & MEAT TRADE has been an ongoing activity for years now. The difference being, that now with the recent verdict, it has become a FREE-FOR-ALL animal to KILL. And why? Because they moved to our habitats in search of food, shelter and water, all of which WE have destroyed for our convenience? And because to defend their young ones from US they fight back? **If animals had a voice in the court of law, humans would be declared Vermin.** Declaring monkey as vermin is anti-humanity as its the land mafia which has usurped their forests by breaking every law possible and its them who are instigating the policies to kill them so that their lands can be taken over. Its this mafia which should be declared VERMIN. An animal who is happy if he gets his food and his children are safe cannot be killed if humans have taken over its habitats and food sources. The law breakers are not these animals but the mafia and the officials who do nothing to stop the mafia and take bribes to look the other way. Its these officials and the mafia against whom we need to implement the law not the sufferers who happen to be monkeys. Killing them would be unleashing great pain in the planet and breaking an ecological chain, the results would be disastrous karmically and on the area where this pain would be unleashed, they might retaliate by killing humans in revenge,this would unleash chaos and have a devastating effect on tourism and India's image the world over. Dhyan Foundation, under the guidance of Yogi Ashwini, is committed to the cause of protecting and providing for various aspects of Creation. Under the banner of ‘Help a Monkey’, Dhyan Foundation has taken to the cause of monkeys, feeding them, away from human habitation and creating a harmonious environment for men and monkeys. The present notification hits at the very foundation of the initiative and poses threat to our environment and to humans as a microcosm of that environment. Please sign this petition to support Dhyan Foundation's plea to stop MONKEY KILLING. THEY ARE NOT VERMIN. They need to be provided with food and shelter, their habitat protected - both of which have been jeopardised by unplanned development and reckless clearing of forests. Need of the hour is to take action against land mafia and poachers, and preserve our forests and animals.

Petition to chief ministers of states, Prime Minister, Enviorment and Forest Minister Of India, Enviorment and Forest Minster Of states


It is really frustrating to witness our revered cows and progeny feeding on polybags and then dying a painful death.Cow is the most sacred and worshiped animal in India , then why are we turning our face from her current pathetic condition ? Each day thousands of innocent cows and progeny are dying in our country. Cows are not able to open the leftover food polybags with knot  and they end up eating the entire packet.In Dhyan Foundation innumerable surgeries have been done on such cows and bulls and what we found is 50-60 kgs plastic piled up in their stomach. Cow symbolize compassion,charity and abundance, because of the way she gives her milk to everyone and other gau products - dung ,urine are of utmost utility to humans.We can survive without polythene bags in our daily lives but cows can't survive with polythene bags in their stomach,with time there is a huge amount of plastic which gets build up in their stomach and takes the form of stone like material ,hence untimely painful death. Guiding light of Dhyan Foundation Yogi Ashwini ji says "It is dharma of every human being to protect weak and helpless". Are we doing our Dharma ? Our PM says ,we should stop cows feeding on these polybags but Sir how can we stop untill polybags production is on ?Each state Govt should ban the production of shopping polybags immediately and we citizens will surely follow the law. Polybags particularly under 50 microns are not being recycled  and it may take hundreds of years to decompose ,creating menace in the society. The central Govt must clear garbage dumps & remove plastic from open spaces especially roadsides. Abondoning cows on roads to eat garbage is offence under PCA act section 3,11 & IPC 428,429,289. Bring these owner of stray cows,the perpetrator to books. Having the milk of cows feeding on plastic and garbage ,will lead to hazardous diseases. There must be open grazing space for cows.They eat plastic wrapped edibles because they are hungry,if they get their space then cattle intake of plastic can be evaded. There have been directives from our honorable courts to most of the state goverments to ban polybags ,Supreme court said "we are sitting on plastic time bomb " but orders have not been implemented with conviction,hence result is infront of us.Would urge central and state govts to rid our society of this menace and help our cows and progeny lead a healthy life, they deserve. Please sign this petition to support this noble cause ...
