The Supreme Court has issued an order to the government to stop the cruel act of sacrificing animals during Gadhimai fair.
A division bench of justices Ishwori Prasad Khatiwada and Anil Kumar Sinha on Thursday directed the government to form a special committee and take appropriate measure through it to halt the inhuman act of slaughtering animals at Gadhimai, said Bishworaj Poudel, Co-Spokesperson at SC.
"People need to be made aware that slaughtering animal is not a good deed. The government should create such environment that the people make the code of conduct themselves and abide by it," said the Justices in the decision.
Slaughtering animals in mass is not a good thing from the view point of the environment as well.
Advocate Arjun Kumar Aryal had, on 20 November 2014, filed a writ petition demanding the animal slaughter be stopped at Gadhimai. In the petition, the Office of the Prime Minister and the Gadhimai Temple Management Committee were named as the defendants. RSS
