life in general: (PICS IN THIS POST MAY SHOCK YOU) butchering animals
(WARNING! PHOTOS IN THIS POST MAY BE TOO STRONG FOR SOME TO SEE)
Violence is cruel and extremely degrading to those who suffer from it. Today is Bakri Id festival of Muslims where they kill a large number of goats as a sacrifice.
We mercilessly butcher animals not just for our food but also due to religious fervour. There are contradictions even when one religion tries to show compassion for animals. For instance, Hindu right-wing group, RSS, says animal sacrifice is inhuman but then also encourages full commercial use of bull power (that I can add is extremely painful to the bulls)
Below are five sets of photos -- first one pertains to Bakri Id, second one pertains to Hinduism's rituals, third one pertains to Christianity's turkey massacre during Thanksgiving, fourth one pertains to consumption of eggs and chickens by humans and fifth one pertains to consumption of pork by us.
I wish for a world where humans stop inflicting such extreme cruelty towards animals.
I REPEAT. THE PHOTOS ARE VERY SHOCKING.
