Animals and humans suffer and die alike. …the same pain, the same spilling of blood, the same stench of death, the same arrogant, cruel, and brutal taking of life. 

First state wide ABC/AR programme in India?

———- Forwarded message ———-
From: Purnima Toolsidass <

Please publicise the follwing news frm Sikkm:

I wanted to share our good news from Sikkim with you, and I am hoping
you can help us publicise this throughout India. The Sikkim Anti-Rabies
and Animal Health (SARAH) programme has officially become a separate
Division of the Animal Husbandry Department – see official notification
attached. This is very exciting news indeed for the people and animals
of Sikkim. I believe that this is the first time an animal welfare
programme has been incorporated into the Animal Husbandry Dept – please
let me know if you know of any other states that have done this. I also
believe Sikkim is the first state in India to have a state wide ABC/AR
programme – again please let me know if I am wrong.

This programme has been very successful and appreciated by the public of
Sikkim, but India wide publicity of the good achievements of the
programme has been sorely lacking. I would be so appreciative if you can
suggest how I can rectify this. It will certainly help our future
funding and support if the Government of Sikkim is praised for its
animal welfare activities. I also believe that it is important for
other Indian states to know about this programme as they may wish to
implement similar strategies within their own Animal Husbandry Dept.

I will forward this email to AWBI and Animal People to see if they also
have any suggestions.

Thank you very much for your help.

Kind regards

Product Description

This book is an effort to highlight the importance and treatment of wildlife according to Islamic injunctions. The need for compiling this work was felt during a country wide campaign that was supervised by the author on behalf of the world society for the protection of animals (WSPA). The campaign was aimed at assessing and curbing bear abuses such as bear baiting, dancing etc. across the country, though the practice is on for centuries in this part of world. It has brought the brown bear population to an alarmingly low level. The three type of wild bears once had profound presence in the different wilds of Pakistan. Out of them, one is already extinct while other two are at the verge of extinction. A common Muslim may not have the slightest idea that Islam strictly prohibits unnecessary loss of wildlife and there are many Ahadith of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) that highlight the conservation of this important aspect of nature. This work is hoped to give at least a basic knowledge to a common Muslim that how Islam deals with the subject. This is an effort to make people understand the importance and rights of animals in the light of Islamic teachings
