Maneka Gandhi intervenes after 3 tied-up goats, screaming in pain, were ready to be sacrificed in Nagpur temple

Union Minister Maneka Gandhi saved the lives of two out of three goats from being scarified at Durga Saptashakti Temple at Kamptee in Nagpur that too in the presence of children. 

Srushti Chahande Dhoble, a 24-year-old who raised her voice against the act, in conversation with Times of India, said, I heard wailing noises of animals. When I went inside, I saw three goats, brutally tied up with garlands around their necks. They seemed to be crying out loud in pain. 

Dhoble began filming the video, as a result of which, she got involved in a war of words and was thus banned from entering the premises of the temple. She then sought support from citys animal rights activist Karishma Galani, who is a member of the government’s Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). 

It was when Galani approached Gandhi who then instructed the city cops to take stern action against the violators. A team of police officials reached the temple and seized two goats as one of the three goats was already sacrificed by then. 

An offence has been registered against the unidentified accused under various IPC sections of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 and Maharashtra Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act, 1995. Kamptee Police is now investigating the matter and trying to look for the owner of the temple and other people involved in the act. 

Sacrificing animals in the name of religion especially after the festival of Navratri is a common practice across the country. Gandhi in conversation with TOI said that sacrifice of animals at any religious place is illegal across the country. Though the number of such cases has gone down, such acts are still taking place. The police have become quite active and they are stopping sacrifice of animals after getting tip-off. It is a cruel and vicious act. There is no need to please god through bloodbath. People should stop taking lives of other beings.
