Don’t abuse animals, they have their rights too


Islamabad: (Parliament Times) The Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) volunteer and Islamabad Devcom Centennial Leo Club (IDCLC) charter president Shaaref Munir said animals have their rights to live without any abuse and exploitation like any other living creatures and human beings. They are useful to us in many ways and we need to take care of them for their healthy life. The healthy animals can contribute more productivity to our daily life.
Speaking to the participants of the children summer art camp at the Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) on Thursday, Shaaref Munir said many of us love to have pets at our home but don’t take care of them as usually required. Many of us abuse them by giving them insufficient food or beating them for no reason or put them in miserable conditions just to enjoy their pain. This is psychological disorder.
Many animals are used for pushing the carts and we put huge load on the carts that make uneasy for the animals to carry on with the load. Despite having daylong hard-work the animals are not given sufficient food, their living conditions are worst, and their healthcare is zero.
He said unfortunately many wild animals die in the zoos where all professional measures were supposed to be taken by the officials. The wild animals are not provided with the natural habitats in the zoos neither given right food and shelter.
Shaaref Munir proposed to have civil society representatives on the boards of the zoo so that they shall have citizens voice in taking care of the wild animals in the zoos. He said even the stray dogs and cats have their rights. They don’t bite until they teased to such level. If we let them live comfortably, we don’t need to kill them for any reason.
He said our religion has protected the rights of the animals, both domestic and wild creatures. We need to learn and implement the rights of animals. This would be the level of social recognition of everyone’s rights.
