Are Animals Laws Effective Enough In Protecting And Safeguarding Animal Rights?

 Are Animals Laws Effective Enough In Protecting And Safeguarding Animal Rights?


According to a survey released by the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organizations (FIAPO) and All Creatures Great and Small (ACGS), a total of 493,910 animals would be subjected to human abuse between 2010 and 2020. 

Over 400 of the 1,000 animal assault instances documented were violent attacks such as beating, kicking, pouring acid, or boiling water on the animals.

Sexual assault and harming the private areas of female animals are examples of animal cruelty. The majority of the victims of these acts are stray animals. As a result, effective enforcement of animal protection legislation is improbable in the face of such heinous acts.

In India, at least 50 animals die every day as a result of animal cruelty. However, because most cases of animal cruelty go undetected, these figures are only the tip of the iceberg.

Many people are ignorant that their activities against animals are illegal, thus they are unafraid. Furthermore, this harshness is frequently trivialised.

Furthermore, all animal rights are ignored since the penalty for violating them are so small. A first-time offender for animal cruelty, for example, faces a fine ranging from Rs.10 to Rs.50.

In many circumstances, animal protection laws fall short of sufficiently covering the scope of crime, leaving animals vulnerable to humans' callous behaviour. As a result, legislative flaws are the primary reason of rising animal cruelty in India.

The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act of 1960 in India has to be updated, and the punishment should be increased in proportion to the severity of the act. Whatever act of harming or killing animals for any reason shall be considered as a criminal offence punishable by a fine of Rs.75 000 or three times the animal's worth. Speciesism, or the prejudice that favors humans above animals, should be a thing of the past today. Instead, all animals should be granted the same rights as humans, and this should include cows and chickens.

As a result, it is past time to make the rules more stricter and harsher on the offender. After all, animals must be treated equally to people and granted certain basic rights to exist in peace.
