It has come to light that in Gujarat, India, another dog has been murdered in an extremely sadistic way; first, the dog was beaten and then later acid was thrown all over the body due to which the poor animal lost its life.
This was done by a resident of Gujarat Housing Board, Chandkheda,and the incident happened near a tailor shop named Rangoli Tailors on July 28 at around 12 noon.
Dog meat is also eaten and is found in Nagaland.
Dogs and cows are the most ‘visible’ animals on the streets of India and they are the ones that have to bear the most at the hands of sadistic people who take pleasure in hurting them.
Atrocities against cows have seen a remarkable rise as they are seen as ‘political’ animal and condoning their killing or organizing beef festivals is rising in India. These are done to make political statements and to show that Indian does not merely belong to those who like this animal.
Many cows are abducted and smuggled and sold in the illegal meat markets and the money earned is used in terror funding. People who protect cows often have to pay with their lives at the hands of anti-social elements but these facts are overlooked by those who only see politics and not compassion for an animal.
In Hingoniya Gaushala of Jaipur, a cow sanctuary, 90 cow deaths were reported in 4 days and 500+ cows have died in one month.
These cows died as they were not being cared for, were hungry, were thirsty and they died a very painful death. Where were the cow protectors, or the vigilantes you ask? They were exactly where the animal rights activists were. In short, nowhere.
Cows are also killed for leather and meat after dairy industry has no use of it. Many are impregnated every year but the calves are torn away in infancy and sold to meat market if they are males. For the female, the same cycle of atrocities continues, till they are killed for leather and meat.
Besides this the fur-bearing clothes and leather goods such as sofa sets, clothes and others are also making a serious impact in the market and the meat market is killing almost every bird, goat and buffaloes, fishes and what not in India!
What is problematic is that animal activism in India is highly shallow and problematic. It does very little but makes hue and cry at everything.
Getting non-vegetarians to promote animal causes also promotes hypocrisy and again harms animals the most. So we have people crying over ‘perceived atrocities’ on bulls in Jallikattu but the same bunch of people also attend beef festivals to promote their point of views. The very fact that without Jallikattu these bulls would adorn the beef and leather market are forgotten and another animal dies at the altar of politics.
This is exactly the thing that Captain Paul Watson hit out at in a rather bold article. But in India, people do not have such bold and moral voices, unfortunately. So the noise pollution on animal rights goes on and on.
And what it effectively does is turn people away from what they perceive as cacophony without rhyme and reason and as a result animals suffer and suffer.
