The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

New Delhi: On a day the Kar­nataka Assem­bly passed a Bill to le­galise tra­di­tional buf­falo race Kam­bala, an­i­mal rights body PETA on Mon­day said al­low­ing this “cru­elty” to be af­flicted on an­i­mals is “shame­ful” and leaves a “black mark” on In­dia. PETA said In­dia has long en­joyed the ad­mi­ra­tion of na­tions for its cul­tural rev­er­ence for an­i­mals rights but it moved “back­ward” when other coun­tries are pro­gress­ing by ban­ning the use of an­i­mals in cir­cuses, bull­fights, and other “cruel” spec­ta­cles. “Al­low­ing this cru­elty to an­i­mals is a shame­ful black mark on our na­tion,” Poorva Jo­shipura, CEO of PETA In­dia, said. —
