PETA India releases statement amid protests urging to ban it

Mumbai: Amid pro Kambala agitation in Karnataka, PETA India has released a statement on Saturday in the wake of protests urging the concerned authorities to ban PETA India organisation.  

“Agitators in Karnataka have taken a leaf from the pro-jallikattu protesters’ book and have begun to falsely label PETA India as “foreign” and are now calling for the organisation to be banned,” PETA India said.

“PETA India is an Indian law abiding organisation that has spent the last 17 years advocating ahimsa, promoting vegetarian food and clothing, facilitating free veterinary care for working animals whose owners cannot afford it, and rescuing dogs, monkeys, and even elephants in need, among other lifesaving activities. Calling for a ban on PETA India would be akin to calling for a ban on a child protection organization that saves children from illegal trafficking. We should all be concerned that such an action is being called for,” said Poorva Joshipura, PETA India CEO.

“It is time to ask ourselves what kind of country we want. One in which mob rule decides laws and court verdicts don’t matter, and where bullies call for the dissolution of a lawful organisation with an impeccable record of good deeds? Make no mistake: in such circumstances, any non-governmental organisation or individual in India can face retaliatory action. A lawless society would be a society on the rails–and one in which everyone is at risk,” she added.
