The 25th of November is International Meatless Day - Animal Rights Day and everyone is enccourage to do something or organise something in a big or small way to educate people about the violence and suffering that animals go through at the hands of human expliotation.
P.R. Sarkar’s wrote in his book "Neohumanism in a Nutshell" part I :
" Human life is more secure than animal life. Many animals live in the jungle where there is something to fear every minute; where the weak are the prey of the strong. To escape this atmosphere of fear and insecurity, many wild animals have sought refuge with human beings. They have been fed grass, leaves and other types of fodder until the right moment came to kill them for their flesh. Even today, this is generally what happens. Animals fully trust human beings; they trust them even up to one minute before their death. But when they see a person approaching them with a weapon in hand , they realize that those they had trusted as friends are actually their enemies. Although human beings feed their animals , the love or attachment they have for them is purely external. There is no genuine love in them. This is how wretched animal life can be.
"Every human being has had to pass that sort of painful animal life in the past. But that does not mean we should be the cause of misery for those animals who have taken shelter with us today. On the contrary, we should have a merciful attitude towards them."
Due to human greed animals all over the world are being exploited. Many are tortured in the name of providing food for humans, maimed beyond their ability to care for them selves and while humans fatten them up, are left to suffer in silence, unnoticed by people blinded by thoughts of profit and loss. As our minds expand , let us think for those creatures who have no voice and who suffer in silence.
