Appeal to Abolition Animal Sacrifice in School Premises sign now

Sir,

You are well aware that sacrificing animals for spiritual reasons as a part of religious ritual is legally forbidden in India.

It is however quite painful & immensely concerning to note in this regard that in spite of existence of a stringent regulation against practice, countless numbers of different animals like buffaloes, goats, camels, ducks, hens etc are being slaughtered everyday in a range of religious rites across the nation.

It is a subject of shame & disgrace that West Bengal too is no exception to such social wickedness. As for instance, in some of the Primary schools of Bankura district, there is practice of sacrificing animals in front of school children on the occasion of Manasa Puja (worship of Manasa, a goddess of Hindus). This practice of utter brutality is performed every year, which without doubt generates an adverse effect into the young minds of school children.

The organizers and arrangers of such ritual are again going to recur it during the third week of August this year. The local administration is astoundingly silent on the issue.

For the last few years we, the Science and Rationalists Association of India had been combating against such brutal activities in school premises.

We are certain that you will duly comprehend the severity of the circumstances and will send your kind instruction (s) to the concerned officials to enquire & set off necessary measures towards abolition of such evil practices from places where education is imparted.

An affirmative response from your end will be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you,

Signed

Biplab Das, Secretary, Science and Rationalists Association of India

Prabir Ghosh, General Secretary, Science and Rationalists Association of India

Sumitra Padmanabhan, General Secretary, Humanists Association
