Without animals, I think the entire universe will be doomed: Justice (Retd) KS Radhakrishnan, Former judge, Supreme Court of India, at #FreedomForAll telethon

Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act was enacted in 1960. It is true. It was not amended for the last so many years. That is exactly the reason why the Supreme Court, in Animal Welfare Board of India case, interpreted the various provisions of the PCA Act in the light of the constitutional provisions and made a judgment, judgment law under Article 142 of the Constitution. Under Article 142 the Supreme Court can make a judgment law on any matter, any cause that is brought before the court. And once the court is satisfied that there's a lacuna, it has to be remedied by the parliamentarians, by passing a proper legislation. Of course, in various matters, for example, transgenders case, for example slavery and all that, it took long, long years to legislate.

In my judgment also, I have specifically indicated that there should be a world body which will protect the rights of animals. We have a United Nations. We have united human rights. That is protecting the rights of human beings wherever in the whole universe, whole world. But why not? Why not an international community wake up and bring an international legislation applicable to all countries through the intervention of United Nations, so that let there be a separate body for protecting the rights of animal. That is also one of the species in the earth. Without animals, I think the entire universe will be doomed.

About The Campaign

About The Campaign

We cage animals, we test on animals, we hunt animals, we kill animals.

The scale and intensity of animal suffering is far greater than any other form of suffering.

And yet it is a suffering that goes unnoticed by most of us.

Animals globally are in dire need of aid & support from the cruelty that they endure each day. The statistics are appalling & the resolve is barely skimming the surface.

Millions of animals suffer inhuman treatment as a result of illegal trade and poaching, reckless breeding, farm agriculture and lab experiments. The laws that protect animals are archaic, there is poor compliance, and existing facilities and infrastructure at animal shelters are below par, and too few in number.

Despite this animal harm & exploitation on a massive scale, financial support for animal welfare causes is less than 1% of the amount that comes in for human causes.

Animal welfare should concern us all. Human health issues, environmental degradation, global warming and challenges of animal well-being are all interconnected. There is an imminent need to be aware of  and to adopt an one health approach. For one to be healthy, the planet and all living beings on it need to be healthy.

The India Animal Fund Freedom For All campaign envisions a world free of animal harm and exploitation which prioritizes ending the suffering of all sentient beings independent of species.

The campaign aims to provide a platform for effective giving that produces transparent, independent, evidence-based and actionable recommendations of interventions/ organizations to demonstrably reduce animal suffering in India.

It’s now time to fight for the dignity of animal life. It’s now time to treat all sentient beings with compassion.

Join hands with the India Animal Fund Freedom For All campaign to help animals. They only have us for support.
