Cows Allegedly Starved for Hours During Protest Deserve Justice

Target: Siddaramaiah, Chief Minister of Karnataka, India

Goal: Hold those responsible for alleged animal cruelty at a protest accountable.

In a recent event that sparked outrage among advocates for animal rights, allegations have surfaced concerning severe mistreatment of cows during a political protest in Bengaluru in the Indian state of Karnataka. According to reports, these innocent animals were roped in as part of a demonstration, subjected to conditions that no being should endure. The heart of this outcry lies in the disturbing details; these cows were allegedly deprived of basic needs such as fodder and water for over four hours, all under the harsh conditions of a public spectacle.

Further allegations suggest a more harrowing scene, where the animals were not only denied sustenance but also forced to endure blaring loudspeakers and the chaos of being pushed towards buses by protestors. Such actions, if true, not only reflect a blatant disregard for animal welfare but also a disturbing use of living beings as tools for political expression. It’s reported that nine individuals, including key figures from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), are at the center of these accusations, prompting a call for scrutiny and legal examination under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.

The necessity for this petition arises not only from the immediate need to address the alleged wrongs done to these animals but also to uphold the principles of compassion and accountability within our society. It’s imperative that those with the power to enact change take a firm stand against any and all forms of animal abuse. Take action now.


Dear CM Siddaramaiah,

I write to you deeply concerned about recent allegations of animal cruelty that reportedly took place during a political protest in Bengaluru. Accounts suggest that cows were used as part of a demonstration and allegedly subjected to severe mistreatment, including being denied food and water for an extended period. These actions, reportedly carried out by members of the Bharatiya Janata Party, have not only caused public outrage but also raised serious questions about the adherence to the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.

The details of the incident, as reported, are disturbing. Cows were allegedly made to endure harsh conditions, including exposure to loud noises and the threat of physical harm. Such treatment of animals is unacceptable and demands a thorough investigation. It is vital that our legal system responds to these allegations with the seriousness they deserve, ensuring that justice is served for the mistreatment of these defenseless beings.

I urge you to take swift and decisive action in this matter. It is crucial that those found responsible for the alleged cruelty are held accountable under the law. This case not only tests our commitment to animal welfare but also our collective integrity as a society. We must stand against the use of animals in political demonstrations in a manner that subjects them to harm and distress.
