Animal Sacrifice and Us

Animal sacrifice is the ritual killing of helpless, innocent animals as part of different religions worldwide. Here, I want to make it very clear that I am not against any religion, but I abhor murder of defenseless creatures in the name of religion. All the religions spread the message of love, peace and brotherhood, and killing majestic animals to appease God is beyond sensible comprehension.

Rather than killing beautiful animals, we must get involved in acts of kindness towards all sentient beings - humans or animals. Today, there are millions of humans and animals who are starving. They need our help, kindness and love in order to survive. If we help ease their pain, give them food and shelter, and make them smile; God will be more happy and give His blessings to us. Because God loves those, who are kind to all.

Come world, let us show that we are really humane, and that we truly care for our planet and all those who live on it! Let us stop killing and torturing others in the name of religion or for mere greed! Let us spread love and peace, and give a little sunshine to all!

Drinking Deer Blood!!!

Recently, a section of the rich Chinese people celebrated the mid - autumn moon festival by drinking the blood of freshly slaughtered deer!! A private deer breeding farm near Nanjing did brisk business as people traveled from distant places to see the farm owner drink the flowing blood straight from the cut horns, the Nanjing Morning Post reported. Some drank the fresh blood in small cups, some mixed it with liquor and a few drank it straight from the cut antlers. People visiting the farm subscribe to an old notion that drinking fresh antler blood can cure several ills and hugely improve their health!

Sometimes, I wonder how many health problems the Chineses are suffering from! They eat tiger parts and other animals to increase their sexual power! And now this deer blood to cure them of some illness! This is a shame that instead of visiting a doctor or getting expert medical advice, cruel humans are butchering innocent, defenseless animals in the name of curing some mysterious disease. This is simply outrageous. The government, which must take steps to stop this mindless violence against animals, is being a mute spectator and doing nothing. The government officials must be drinking innocent deer blood themselves!

we all have to raise our voice against such cruel atrocities and save our animal friends before they are all extinct!

How to Save Animals

It is an unfortunate fact that animal abuse has been rampant since the beginning of the civilization. There are still no enough strict laws to save our animal friends or stiff penalties for poachers and animal abusers. However, we can do a lot to help these animals by taking some action eg. signing petitions, raising our voice at all available platforms, including social media; and by donating some of our earnings for their welfare and rehabilitation.

There are many other ways to help our animal friends. We can adopt animals from shelters, thus providing them a new home where they can live happily thereafter. It is always good to adopt a pet than to buy one from a pet shop or an animal breeder. Any incident of animal abuse must be reported immediately to the authorities so that the offenders are caught and punished. This might prove to be a restraint for future animal abusers. If we happen to find an animal that is injured, we must always call the animal helpline number so that the animal gets appropriate medical help on time. We can save humdreds of precious animal lives this way. We must stay away from hunting innocent animals. We must also not support the Fur Industry which alone is responsible for millions of animal deaths every year.

Apart from taking all these measures, we can share our thoughts about animal welfare and animal rights among our family and friends to raise awareness. We should always remember that the Earth belongs to animals as much as it belongs to us. If we want to live on this planet happily, we will have to save animals and let them live alongside us. Save animals, save the planet!
