Parody: There are many cruel festivals in India which harm animals.
1. Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu
2. Bullock Cart Race in Maharashtra
3. Deadly Manja for kites in Makarsankranti
4. Diwali beacuse of Crackers
And the list continues. Animal Right organisation like PETA have taken steps to stop such cruel Hindu Festivals. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is an American animal rights organization. Its slogan is “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.”
PETA has played an active role in banning Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu. As per PETA, Jallikattu is crueality on Animals and Animals are harmed during the festival. Similar to this PETA had taken initiative to successfully banned Bullock Cart Race. After the Maharashtra government passed legislation lifting the ban on bullock cart races in the state, stating the amended Act will ensure participating animals are not harmed and violators would be penalised, animal rights organisation PETA, which has alleged that bulls are treated cruelly during the races, said it will challenge the Bill. Farmers, who have practised bullock cart racing as a part of their tradition and culture, had been protesting against the ban since it was enforced in the state in 2014 following the Supreme Court order.
But as per PETA during Bakri Eid the animals are not harmed and there is curelty. The knief used are not deadly like Deadly Manja, nor it causes loud noise like Crackers in Diwali. Hence animals are not harmed in any way. Also animals are cut using the method called “Halal” which is peaceful and does not causes any pain. So, there should not be problems on Bakri Eid, moreover there will be below advantages:
1. Peaceful method to cut Animals “Halal”:
2. Saves goats from sexual assaults:
3. Cleans roads and also gives them a colour for goats to walk:
We wish Goats a joyful Bakri Eid !!
