Court orders to stop sacrificing animals for Gadhimai festival
Kathmandu: The Supreme Court has issued an order to stop the cruel act of sacrificing animals during the Gadhimai festival.
A division bench of justices Ishwori Prasad Khatiwada and Anil Kumar Sinha on Thursday directed the government to form a special committee and take appropriate measures to stop the inhumane act of slaughtering animals, informed Court’s Co-Spokesperson Bishworaj Paudel.
“People need to be made aware that slaughtering animal is not a good deed. The government should create such an environment that people make the code of conduct themselves and abide by it,” said the justices in the decision.
On November 20, 2014, advocate Arjun Kumar Aryal had filed a writ petition demanding the slaughter be stopped and naming the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers along with the Gadhimai Temple Management Committee as the defendants. - RSS
