Send protest email now!

I am shattered to learn that, in spite of the huge national and international outcry against the Gadhimai animal sacrifice event, Nepal government has not taken any actions to prevent the bloodshed. On the contrary, the Nepal government provided 4.5million funds for this festival in 2009.

Every single one of the 250.000 animals has a will to live just like us and suffers severely due to the brutal slaughter. It was reported that most animals did not get killed in one strike because the knives were not sharp enough. They were seen struggling till their last breath. The living animals are forced to watch their fellows die painfully subjecting them to terror.

It is undisputed that ritual of animal sacrifice is part of human history. However, it should definitely not be a part of the present because as we progress, we must discontinue traditions which are not in consonance with right thinking and involves senseless torture to sentient beings. This has been followed in the past by stopping human sacrifices and burning of widows on the pyres of their husbands. We have long known about animals‘ ability to suffer and the complexity of their minds and emotions which is now being scientifically proven worldwide.

Any country plagued with superstitions should make an attempt to ward it off by educating its masses. But I am disheartened to learn that Nepal is in fact encouraging and capitalizing on deaths of innocent beings in the name of tradition, which started with an irrational thought of Bhagwan Chaudhary, who dreamt that his problems would be solved if he made a blood sacrifice to goddess Gadhimai.

Superstitions like animal sacrifice are a sign of an under developed society. And when Nepal supports such superstitions, it contradicts the development efforts of Nepal and needless to say hampers the image of Nepal in the global world.

I urge you to please withdraw all support provided to the Gadhimai animal sacrifice event, encourage the devotees to follow symbolic sacrifice of white pumpkin, gourd, etc., work towards ending the barbaric Gadhimai animal sacrifice and introduce strong law banning animal sacrifice in Nepal.

I sign against this horror show every damn year----and every damn year it continues.

Nepal is just another fifth world country clinging to barbaric empty rituals that serve no other purpose
but to inflict senseless pain and suffering.

Other than that, what can anyone say? Truth is far more grotesque than fiction here on merry planet earth. God help us.

There's no respect or compassion, that comes from anyone who participates in this murderous bloodbath. This is cruelty, this is man's own selfish ideals..This is humanity & Nepal. All who partake will be punished, one way or another. No compassion should ever be shown for the people of Nepal & the government.
