    Kudos to PETA for showing guts to stand up for their ideology !

    Peta's call to Muslims to observe vegetarian Eid misfires

    BHOPAL: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' (Peta) first shot at religious activism — a call to Muslims to observe a vegetarian Eid this October — has misfired. It met with violent protests here on Monday.

    One policeman was injured and a Peta volunteer roughed up by protestors, which included women, and later whisked away by Bhopal police.

    Peta woman volunteer "Benazir Suraiya" attempted to make an appeal to Muslims to go vegetarian at the legendary Taj-ul-Masajid, said to be one of Asia's largest mosques.

    Camouflaged in a green hijab, to highlight the importance of vegetarianism, she walked towards the mosque gates with a couple of PETA volunteers holding a placard in Urdu and English which read: "Make Eid Happy for All. Try Vegan".

    With less than a dozen policemen deployed, locals took the opportunity and shouted slogans asking her to turn back. She was forced to take cover along with another PETA volunteer in the market outside the mosque.

    Within minutes the crowd swelled and Suraiya was left to fend for herself as PETA supporters fled the scene. "We are going to get a taxi for Suraiya. Police has been called for support too," said PETA volunteer Divya.

    Bhopal-based PETA volunteer Akash said, "Girls were being targeted so they left the scene. Is Suraiya still there?" CSP police Sunil Patihar reached the spot to take control of the situation. According to PETA, Suraiya works for the group as its media and celebrity projects specialist. Sources said she is based in Mumbai and the group networked the event through volunteers in Bhopal and Indore.

    PETA representative Grishma Mytra refused to take calls when contacted for a comment. The group urging Muslims not to perform animal sacrifice and donate the same instead for welfare of animals and people, did not go down well with the Muslim community which is gearing up to celebrate the festival in the first week of October.

    "We are offended by this move of PETA. It is an insensible move which should have been stopped by the district administration, before it took place. This is a direct attack on our religious beliefs," said protestor Naved Khan.

    Police whisked away Suraiya to an undisclosed location. No arrests have been reported.

    Peta should have called to everyone for giving up meat why target only one particular community? Moreover who gives a rats ass to peta activist? Food preference is a private affair and it should be like that. And muslim community have once again spoilt there image by voilantly attacking the protesters.
    Let peta protest its not like they forcing you to turn into vegan.

    This is a conspiracy by kaffirs yindoos to make the momins effeminate by turning them into vegetarian.

    Anyways wonder why Sagarika and company have not tweeted about this. The peaceful never leave an occasion to show their peacefulness :)

    Well, Shagorika and others have had their views on waterless Holi and crackerless Diwali, so good on PETA for trying bloodless Eid !

    Shagorika, Shobha De and other fiberals do not have the gumption to question beliefs other than Hinduism coz the result will be as above !

    Eating animals is no big deal for them if they can kill each other in the name of religion ,she was lucky that was not slaughtered due to police presence as no one would have come forward to even witness in court .

    The country is reaching ridiculous levels in activism.

    It seems to have become an industry and is taken to be fashionable to protest.

    Agreed that animals are in pain when slaughtered, but then plants too experience stimuli when plucked or torn. The fact that we cannot hear the adverse stimuli reaction of the plants does not in any way make it less cruel.

    If during Id, the ritual mandates a sacrifice as a reminder of not being selfish, so be it since it is for endorsing a higher plane of human psychology that is getting rarer by the day.

    Some one should start an organisation as petveg and protest against those who pluck/eat fruits;flowers and veggies. Afterall even trees and plants must have right for being treated ethically. Also not to breathe unfiltered air or consume natural water as it also contains microorganisms.

    But filtration kills all micro-organisms.

    Now that is cruel.

    Best is kill ourselves and save the world!

    And even better - Blame Modi!

    That will at least bring some joy to Adjective Singhvi.

    in fact killing a goat is good thing . hindus should also emulate it . makes one impervious to shedding of blood which is exteremely useful in war .i advocate establishment of kali mata temples all over the country since the goddess accepts animal sacrifice .

    I have already mentioned this before, but here it goes again. The only reason cattle/goat/chicken are not extinct/facing extinction now is "because" we eat them. How much kilos of "deers" are eaten every year from poaching and how much kilos of goats/chicken/cattle are eaten in India and tell me which animal is facing extinction? There is a reason dogs(of species Canis lupis, aka the grey wolf) are a thriving subspecies while their same species cousins wolfs(of species Canis lupis) are nearing extinction. If anything , these PETA morons would drive these animals extinct if the succed in implementing their demands of veganism.

    Anyway, the highlight of this incident is not about PETA or its retardedness but the reaction from the crowd, who are of course- moderate, majority, peaceful, law abiding muslims, who dont belong to extremist organisations( or peaceful organisation if you like it that way) like SIMI/IM/ISIS etc.

    Why?

    Do you think all are beggars?

    Is that your idea of being Indian?

    Because that is the excuse/apologetic statements most people(including yourself) make when defending these kinds of actions (i.e, when they dont respect the rule of law/dont respect the freedom of expression/dont understand the term "peaceful demonstrations" etc) by muslims, . I was just mocking that apologetic statements. It was intended as a satire.

    Now why would I think that or how is that even remotely connected to what I have written

    My idea of Indian is respect for the "Indian" rule of law and placing the identity of being an "Indian" above anything else(religion, caste, language, etc ). Nothing else! But I am not sure why you have asked this question though to be honest!
