Congress’s online magazine for ‘youth’ Yuva Desh and Islamists joined hands with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to attack and hurl personal abuses at columnist Shefali Vaidya after she asked the ‘animal rights group’ to be as vocal about goat sacrifice on Bakri Eid as it is about Hindu festivals.
Congress and its supporters attacked Vaidya and called her a ‘snake’ for voicing her concern for the inhumane goat sacrifice ahead of Bakri Eid.
They even shared an edited video of Vaidya to insult her.
Soon, other fundamental Islamists too started attacking Vaidya.
OMG PETA I can’t stop laughing 🤣🤣🤣 #SnakesLivesMatter— Hasiba Amin 🌈 (@HasibaAmin) July 18, 2020
Soon, PETA India, taking cue from the support it received from Congress and Islamists who attacked Vaidya by calling her names and ‘snake’, tweeted how they ‘help’ snakes too.
Every hypocrite needs to be shown a mirror. A vegetarian/animal lover will always oppose animal killing without having it to ralate to any religion.— Sapna Madan / सपना मदान (@sapnamadan) July 19, 2020
Non vegetarians talking about lives of animals is sheer bullshit.
Very well done @PetaIndia#SnakesLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/alyg2cINij
PETA and goat slaughter on Bakri Eid controversy
PETA India recently launched a ‘go vegan’ campaign wherein it asked Hindus to not use cow leather ‘this Rakshabandhan’. Netizens were shocked to see the campaign poster as leather, especially cow leather, has no correlation with the Hindu festival. In its defence, PETA claimed that the message of the campaign was that cows are like our sisters and hence they too need protection. Which is even more strange because cows are revered as mothers in Hinduism, not ‘sisters’. Further, just few weeks prior, Muslim clerics had opposed PETA’s poster in Lucknow appealing banning goat slaughter. The poster was later removed after it hurt the ‘religious sentiments’ of Muslim clerics. Lucknow Police told OpIndia that PETA removed the posters after opposition from Muslim clerics. However, Bhaskar report claims police informed them that the posters were removed without PETA’s knowledge.
