Boycott Made in Pakistan Expo: STOP violation of ceasefire at LoC - Naresh Kadian
Request to Cancel permission of Made in Pakistan Expo 2014, scheduled to be held at Mumbai. It is understood that Ministry of Commerce Government of Pakistan, All India Association of Industries, Ministry of Commerce Government of India etc. are promoting Made in Pakistan Expo 2014 at World Trade Centre Mumbai from 31st August to 5th September 2014. They had similar exhibition in April 2014 at World Trade Centre Mumbai. As per reports on 21st August 2014 & Pakistani troops once again violated ceasefire by firing at forward Indian posts along the LOC in Hamirpur subsector in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir around 2130 hours on Wednesday, a Defence spokesman said here. An official told that the Pakistan Army resorted to unprovoked firing at Indian positions in Hamirpur sector of the LoC in Rajouri district. Two houses and a mosque were hit, following which the Indian Army retaliated, a police officer said etc.; They have beheaded Indian Soldiers, violated ceasefire several times etc. Also they have started proxy war against India by supporting terrorist activities. Thus the relations with Pakistan are strained and atmosphere is not conducive to promote Made in Pakistan Expo 2014. On Independence day, Indian Prime Minister had declared the policy of Make in India and sale anywhere in the world. Therefore promoting Made in Pakistan Expo 2014 against the policy of Make in India. Thus promoting and permitting Made in Pakistan expo exhibitions in April 2014 and now in August Sept. 2014 is equivalent to promote and support a Country which is not friendly with us. In view of above we request you to consider our National feelings and cancel the permission of Made in Pakistan Expo 2014, scheduled at World Trade Centre Mumbai.
Ban thorn bits: Protect horses - Miss Sukanya Kadian
1. What are thorn bits? Thorn bits are bits with many “thorns” or spikes protruding from the part of the bit that goes inside the mouth of a horse. Some thorn bits have very sharp spikes, others round. Some spikes are long, others small. Thorn bits are made of metal and often rust. They are used in Marwari, Kathiawari, Sindhi or any other breed of “desi” horses. They are manufactured in rural places of India, used rurally, sold and used at the horse fairs too. We might guess a horse is having a thorn bit when: The bit is having double rings on each side (typical of “desi” bits), The horse is having foam on the mouth, pink foam (saliva mixed with blood) due to the mouth cuts inflicted by the bit or even plain blood stains in the corners of the mouth, The horse opens widely his/her mouth when the reins are pulled (to try avoiding the pain), The horse keeps his / her head high while ridden (to try escaping from the bit as it causes pain). The horse is doing “rewaal chal” gait (amble) (often “rewaal chal” is achieved through pain). 2. Why are they used? Indian and Pakistani farmers use thorn bits because they want to “control” and “dominate” the horses fast, they want immediate results in training, for which they inflict pain, instead of training the horses with patience and rewarding them. They are blind to horses’ suffering and lack equestrian knowledge. Those people are used to thorn bits since childhood, thus they do not question the cruelty of the thorn bits. Note: After some time, the horse develops scars in the mouth, thus becoming less sensitive to the bit and the riders pulls even harder or uses a harsher bit and it goes on. 3. What damage it does? Physical: When the rider pulls the reins, the thorns of the bit cut the horse’s lips and sometimes his / her tongue, giving great pain and injuring the horse. As the horse lifts the head and neck in pain, he/she hollows the back and lowers the hips, which strains the backbone muscles from neck to tail and the legs causing pain and often joints/muscles issues. (The rider sitting on the loins adds even more pressure and pain). Mental-emotional: As thorn bits are a torture instrument injuring the horse and causing him / her pain, the horse becomes scared of humans, is said to be hot-blooded, and when ridden, the horse lifts the head high making it impossible to perform equestrian disciplines like dressage, even when the thorn bit is replaced by a smooth bit. The horse has become useless for higher equestrian activities for life. 4. What do trainers in developed countries use: Actually, India and Pakistan are the only countries using thorn bits. Everywhere else the bits are smooth, with no “thorns” or spikes protruding and injuring the mouth of a horse. Foreigner horsemen/horsewomen seeing the Indian thorn bits are horrified. They never had seen them before. The bit is a means to communicate with the horse. If you want a calm, responsive and balanced horse, you must do not inflict pain, you should use a smooth bit or a bitless bridle. If you want subtleness, the aids applied must be subtle too. Thorn bits are cruel devices that create pain and tension in the horses. Naresh Kadian, Rep. of OIPA in India

STOP Kambala Buffalo Race promotion in Surajkund Craft Mela - Sukanya Kadyan
Animals are being badly abused during the event........ Kambala or Buffalo Race is a well-known sport in Karnataka. Though it is difficult to trace the history of this sport yet it is popularly believed that the sport has its origin in the farming community of Karnataka. Following the age-old traditions today Kambala is played as recreational sport by the farmers. The buffalo race is played before the harvesting season commences. It is a way showing gratitude the gods who protect their crops from destruction. To celebrate this moment they organize for different kinds of outdoor sports. Kambala is also seen as the beginning of the sowing season for the next round of crops. Besides these the sport is also organized during religious festivals, such as, Kodamantaya and Jumaadi Bhuta Kolas. Wondering how the game is played. To begin with Kambala is a very simple to play. A track for running is used this track usually is set within the paddy field. Two buffaloes are tied to a cart and the contest takes place between two pair of buffaloes. These animals are controlled by the farmer who carries a whip with him. In the ancient ages the winning pair of buffaloes was rewarded with fruits such as coconut and other simple gifts. Later, however, these plain gifts were replaced by money.

VICTORY: Sunder, baby elephant be released: Bombay High Court ordrered : Sukanya Kadyan
PETA India reports: Sunder was being abused by his mahout (or handler), who has gone on the run from the police since the group became involved. Sunder sustained a severe injury to his right eye from being jabbed in it with an ankus (a sharp, hooked metal poker-like weapon) by the mahout. The elephant is also confined to chains with sharp spikes and is kept alone inside a dark shed, in which he cannot take even a single step forward or backward. Sunder is denied all that is natural and important to him and lives in fear. There are lesions all over his body, indicating past beatings by the mahout. The elephant was donated to the temple by Maharashtra Member of the Legislative Assembly Vinay Kore. A scandal is growing over the way some elephants used in Indian temples to represent the Hindu god Ganesha are being housed and mistreated. Frequently controlled through beatings and prodded and gouged in sensitive areas behind their knees and ears with an ankus, they languish without veterinary care for even serious conditions, sustain leg injuries and are fed unsuitable food. Many elephants at Indian temples also show signs of severe psychological distress, such as swaying, head-bobbing or weaving – behaviour not found in healthy elephants in the wild. The lack of exercise and the years spent standing in one position on hard concrete amid their own waste lead to painful and crippling foot ailments and arthritis.
STOP Bullock cart races in India - Sukanya Kadyan
Link for judgement: click here The Punjab and Haryana High Court has upheld the Central Government’s notification against the training or exhibition of a bull as a performing animal through the sale of tickets. A Division Bench of the High Court ruled: “We do not find any illegality in the notification dated July 11, 2011, by which restriction has been imposed by the Central Government on exhibition or training of a bull as a performing animal, which means any performance where public is admitted through the sale of tickets”. Referring to the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and the Performing Animals (Registration) Rules, the Bench clarified: “We are sanguine in our consideration that the restriction imposed under Section 22 of the Act would apply in respect of performing animal, who has been exhibited or trained for a public view through sale of tickets and not otherwise”. At the same time, the Bench held that the notification was not applicable to sports festival at Kila Raipur. Giving reasons, the Bench asserted: “The events were being held for public entertainment without any sale of ticket in which people from rural Punjab show their strength, endurance and skills in various events, including dog race and bullock cart race. Bullock cart is an integral part of rural India and is still a major means of transportation and bull/ox is regularly used for the purpose of ploughing and other subservient agriculture purposes.” The Bench said it has been observed that the bulls, which are being used for sports, are well looked after, well nourished and are not treated with any cruelty. The ruling came on a bunch of petitions by Gauraksha Dal and other petitioners. They had challenged the 2011 notification issued by the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests. The petitioners had also sought mandamus seeking direction to the State of Punjab to allow bullock cart race in the Rural Olympics, held every year in “as it did not amount to exhibition or training the bulls as performing animal”. Before parting with the ruling, the Bench also quashed orders dated February 2 and February 10 against bullock cart racing in the games.
