Many would be aware of the fact that Punjabi actress Rubina Bajwa is a highly devoted animal lover. Her posts on social media suggest her love and support towards animals especially dogs, animal adoption and raise necessary awareness about animal safety.
Recently, she took to Instagram to share a post with a message, wherein an old puppy was cut into half by a marble cutter. She expressed her concerned and flag on the lack of any laws against animal cruelty in the country. Moreover, she aimed to raise awareness against animal brutality. Scroll down and read the inscription she wrote.
“Disturbed about the 2 month old pup from Mira Road who was cut into half by a marble cutter? Concerned about increasing cases of animal abuse and brutal killings across the country? Here’s an opportunity for all of us to directly write to the Prime Minister, his office, The Union Minister for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, The Union Law and Justice Minister – all of who are authorities who can bring about a change in our animal protection laws that we wish to see.
The monsoon session of Parliament is scheduled to begin from 19th July. By just clicking on the link – Vocalforanimals.org (LINK IN MY BIO), your mail box will open and you can send this email directly to the authorities. All you have to do is press send. The email petition to the PM urges him to ensure that the amendment to PCA Act is passed in this monsoon session of parliament and that heinous acts of animal torture and killing are made non-bailable and provide for exemplary punishment.
The time has come to act as someone relevant is finally willing to listen. We have a great opportunity to contribute in strengthening our weak and outdated animal protection laws, let’s make the most of it.” And tagged animal right activist and lawyer Meet Ashar.
It is indeed very obvious that there is an intervention waiting to happen. In the past too, many have attempted to raise awareness regarding animal cruelty but there haven’t been any changes made with respect to the law. With someone as well-known as Rubina Bajwa speaking up against animal abuse, it would be fascinating to see if her word leads to a positive change.
