PETA Seeks Honour For Raju Srivastava For Delivering Powerful Message Against Horse Cruelty At Weddings

|

The
People
for
the
Ethical
Treatment
of
Animals
(PETA)
India
has
written
to
the
union
ministry
of
fisheries,
animal
husbandry
and
dairy,
requesting
to
honour
the
late
comedian
Raju
Srivastava
(Raju
Srivastav).
The
organisation
has
requested
union
minister
Parshottam
Rupala
to
recognise
Raju’s
contribution
in
prohibiting
the
sale,
manufacture,
trade,
and
possession
of
illegal
spiked
bits
which
are
used
to
control
horses.

In
an
August
2021
video
for
PETA,
Srivastava
requested
people
to
refrain
from
using
horses
at
weddings.
He
had
also
urged
everyone
to
report
the
use
of
spiked
bits
to
the
police.
It
must
be
noted
that
Raju’s
was
produced
on
the
heels
of
an
enforcement
drive
conducted
by
Lucknow
police
in
which
70
spiked
bits
were
seized.

The
late
comedian
said
in
his
video,
“While
we
remain
blissfully
unaware
and
dance
during
weddings,
the
horses
that
are
customarily
included
in
the
processions
are
in
a
lot
of
pain
because
their
trainer
usually
inserts
into
their
mouth
a
spiked
metal
object.
It
wounds
the
horse,
who
often
bleeds
as
a
result
of
it.
But
they
are
not
able
to
express
their
agony.
PETA
has
been
running
a
campaign
with
the
Lucknow
police,
wherein
it
has
urged
horse
trainers
to
not
use
such
objects.”

passed
away
at

on
Wednesday
in
AIIMS

where
he

after
suffering
a
heart
attack
while
exercising
on
August
10.
The
ace
comedian
battled
for
his
life
for
41
days
as
he
was
put
on
a
ventilator
after
undergoing
angioplasty.
His
final
rites
were
performed
today
by
his
family
in
the
