Stop 'Terrorism' against Man's Best Friend in Bangalore
- by: Azam Siddiqui

In what can be termed as one of the most inhumane acts by human animals in Indian soil, the Bangalore City Corporation has ordered a drive to round up and cull homeless dogs. The killings and capture of Dogs continues.Following the tragic death of a child after it was mauled by some dogs in the suburbs of Bangalore city, all it took was just a knee jerk reaction by the authorities in Bangalore city to start a drive of 'Terror' against the homeless dog population in the city and some parts of the state of Karnataka.Thousands captured in the most brutal and barbaric manner by lassoing with metal wires and then pulling them up into vans subjecting them to serious injuries.Keeping them unattended without food and water. Hacking them to death while most them are still wagging their tails.Isnt this 'Terrorism' ?The Hon`ble Commissioner of Bangalore city Corporation, Mr.K.Jairaj in the homepage of his official website calls Bangalore city as 'India's Pride'.Check link here: http://www.bmponline.orgIndeed it was 'India's Pride', till he and his team decided to turn into 'India's Shame'.A shame for every Indian, a shame for not respecting the sayings of the father of the nation of India, Mahatma Gandhi (Bapu) whose golden words are echoed by many even today.Bapu had said, " The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats its animals".There is a fear now that the Bangalore example may be adopted by the other Indian cities as well.Please express your views and sign this petition to Stop 'Terrorism' against Man's Best Friend in Bangalore asking the Commissioner to halt the brutal culling and capture of homeless Dogs.NGOs and Animal People alone cannot stop this massacre, we need now the citizens all across the world and right thinking people to speak out !!
