No Hajj for Animals – The sorrowful deaths of hundreds and thousands of animals

 “There is no fundamental difference between man and animal in their ability to feel pleasure and pain, happiness and misery”– Charles Darwin

This is not about a religion but about the sorrow in the way animals have been slaughtered for an event of celebration and to question how anyone can celebrate denying life to another. All animals feel, see and sense pain and happiness just like all humans. They have no voice to argue against the judgement to end their life. Their tears and cries are testimony to tap our hearts and ask ourselves how we would feel were we in the same place. In this world of inhumanity, let us all take a step back to be more compassionate to all living beings.



These are how the roads of Bangladesh looked


There is hope. The below image comes from Betul, Madhya Pradesh India. These Muslims celebrated Eid by feeding cows a contrast from the gory scenes of rivers of blood in Bangladesh following the slaying of animals to celebrate Eid.


 The picture has received applause and accolades all round the world.  


Let us be more compassionate and loving towards all animals

    Thanks Shenali for bringing again to the fore of this brutal sadistic inhumane killing by these Muslims in the name of their religion. Are you surprised the same killing going among themselves in the ME non stop. Animals, but who else? However , it is incorrect to point the finger at them only, because all others, be Christians or Hindus do the same, though the Muslims as a backward group still do it more brutally & openly whereas the Christians do it ‘more civilized’, if there is such a term though the inhumanity is the same. Can’t you remember the Hindu massacre just before the Nepal earthquake.
    I wonder Is this God,who is supposed to have the unique kindness above all of us, creating animals to endure pain,himself sadistic; animals for protein & taste could have been created just like plants & trees without pain, if I’m given the Godship that will be my first task. Hope he will see my point & make it better his next world. Again do not forget about so called Buddhists, probably the vast majority still finding the taste too unbearable to resist though temples and Poya days are full of them.

    It is what is called survival and continuity of species. In the Middle East where the climate is harsh edible vegetation for humans are and were scarce. Animals fed on roughage and humans fed on animals. This still continues.

    If one find it distasteful and abhorrent they should not eat flesh.

    But it is unfair to try and stop others doing it.

    For those who worship sacred cows; in India people are killed and butchered for eating or keeping beef.

    Then India is a major exporter of beef.

    Please let other humans practice their ways and you stick to your ways.

    Sinhalese always consumed meat but always respected life be fauna and flora.

    Who is this Satish Kumar?

    An Indian vermin from UK.

    He goes for a peace walk in Nuclear Capitals but Delhi is not included.

    What a misleading man.
