JNU : Dog Butchered Alive

  • by: Jasmine Grewal
  • recipient: JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) & other educational institutions in India.

On the 8th of July 2008 at 2 am in the morning an 8 year old female dog was butchered by 1 student from JNU , Yoronso (Ph.d student from JNU's School of Social Science, (Centre for Political Studies)) and his two friends in Room #248 in the Kaveri hostel of JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) in New Delhi, India. She was beaten with a cricket bat and a curtain rod for an hour and then they started to cut her open while she was still alive. Due to the noise and blood gushing out from under the door the people in the hostel got alarmed, and the students and wardens intervened. The dog's name was Kali.

In the year 2006 Kali's aging mother Leela had also died under similar circumstances, when the news of the atrocity leaked out she was labeled as an aggressive dog. unfortunately in this world there is no one to speak for these voiceless animals.

These are not isolated incidents but periodical events which recurrently take place on JNU Campus when street dogs are mercilessly slaughtered. What is most unfortunate and infuriating is that the authorities are aware of these practices and have yet not taken any action against the miscreants.

We want to use this petition to get all institutions across the country to

  • Incorporate laws pertaining to Animal Welfare in their rules and regulations and code of conduct on campuses.

  • Animal abuse should be made a punishable offence by the institution itself.

  • Students should be sensitized about animal welfare during their orientations.

  • The institutions and student bodies should initiate and supervise the ABC program (Animal Birth Control) in and around their campus.
<<< So far there has been no response or action by the authorities in India, except for public outrage.(Dated 23rd July 2008)>>> 

<<< CLARIFICATION : The picture shown above is not Kali, but it is symbolic of Indian Dogs. Kali in hindi means 'black', and as Kali was a black coloured dog she was called Kali. >>>
