    NEW DELHI: Birds have the fundamental right to "live with dignity" and fly in the sky without being kept in cages or subjected to cruelty, Delhi High Court has said while holding that running their trade was a "violation of their rights".

    Justice Manmohan Singh expressed anguish that instead of being allowed to fly free, they were "exported illegally to foreign countries without availability of proper food, water or medical aid".


    "I am clear in mind that all the birds have fundamental rights to fly in the sky and all human beings have no right to keep them in small cages for the purposes of their business or otherwise," the judge said.


    The high court issued notice to Delhi Police as well as the bird owner, Md Mohazzim, and sought their responses by May 28.

    The high court made the observations and issued the orders while staying the direction of a trial court which had allowed some birds to be released to the same person from whom they were rescued on his plea.

    Even though I agree with the judgement, the courts has misplaced priorities. There was a petition on exam related matter in Delhi high court which got 3 extensions without any judgement.

    I would like to meet the "mahanubhav" who had this much time and money at his hands. I too feel sorry for the birds but not enough to prioritize them over fellow humans.
