With the U. P. Government is giving licenses to new abattoirs in the state, there’s simply no way that we can ignore the cries of the Lakhs of innocent animals who fall victim to this barbaric cruelty and mass butchering. All the proposed ultra modern slaughter houses will have capacity to butcher 10,000-20,000 animals per day and the meat will be exported out of India. Enough is enough.

You all are aware that U.P. Govt has issued licenses to 8 new Slaughter Houses. These slaughter houses are against the humanity and means of destroying animal wealth of the state. In protest, Jain Monk Muni Shri Maitri Prabh Sagar has started his fast unto death from 26th April 2011 at Baraut, Distt. Baagpat, Uttar Pradesh. Locals from the surrounding area and various organisations have given their support to the Honorable saint but nothing fruitful has been achieved till date. Local administration there has imposed section 144 in the city and disrupting the non violence agitation for no good reason and adopting tactics to discourage the public.

We all know that the slaughter house licenses have been given for the benefit of few companies. Neither the Uttar Pradesh nor the country will benefit in any way by opening of such cruel and barbaric slaughter houses. See our article on ‘benefits from animal wealth:

We’re standing up against the mandate of Government of U. P. State by any means necessary in support of Jain Monk Munishri Maitriprabh Sagarji, and we need your help to stop these horrible projects of animal slaughter for good.

Here are 5 ways that you can take action and spread the word to all your friends and family:

1.  Start Group Prayers (1-2 hours Paath of Namokar Mantra/ Gayatri Mantra/ Hanuman Chalisa/ Ramayan/Bhaktamar Stotra/ Gurwani Kirtan etc) in your nearest Temple/Gurudwara or Community Hall for the success of campaign against slaughter houses and better health of Muni Shri Maitri Prabh Sagarji.

2. Spread the word about “Scrap the Slaughter House Policy” and help expose Government’s shameful secret through emails, sms, blogs, websites etc. You can also send us your Support Letter (Samarthan Patra) on the letterhead of your group/organisation/society or community on our email: pashuraksha[at]; this will be of immense help.

3.  Do you have 10 minutes to save animals? Share this film on animal killings: economic loss to India, which reveals the true facts about the massacre and the loss of taxpayer money each year.

4.  No religion in this world supports killing of animals. Watch ABKHVS’s vegetarian quotes video and then share it on Facebook and anywhere else!

5.  Have you seen what happens to cows in India?  Watch this shocking video that will open your eyes to India’s cruel cow slaughter.


Please help us keep the pressure on Government of Uttar Pradesh and the Central Government - write emails/fax/post cards to UP Govt. officials / start Signature Campaign in your locality/area to and tell them to scrap the Slaughter House Policy.

Ms. Mayawati, Chief Minister, U.P.

Respected Madam,

Your Government has issued licenses for establishment of new slaughter houses in the state of Uttar Pradesh. I believe that the complete facts have not been given to you on the issue else you would have not given your approval. Therefore, I would like to put some concern before you:

No economic benefits can be derived by killing of innocent animals by the people or the Govt except the Company, which is involved. I would rather say that your Government can earn 5-10 times more benefits by the conservation of these creatures of the God in comparison to export of their meat (kindly analyze the data release by Central Statistical Organisation, GOI, 2009). Cattle are the life line of villagers, they give milk, dung for fuel, manure for farming, and transportation for villagers, conservation of environment etc. They are useful in many other ways.

Moreover, slaughterhouses are big threat to the environment. The whole world has accepted this fact and moving towards greener path and adopting vegetarian die to control Global warming. Many nations have started closing of slaughter houses; India is the land of Mahavira, Gautam Buddha, Ram-Krishna, who taught us the lesson of Ahimsa. Jain Munishri Maitriprabh Sagarji is on his Fast unto death at Baraut, Baagpat since last 8 days in protest of licenses to new slaughter houses, you should be aware. I am aware that you have great respect towards sadhus and Indian culture of Ahimsa/jeevdaya.

We request you to look into the matter and ask the concerned department to reconsider their decision and withdraw it. Please cancel the new licenses of slaughter houses with immediate effect. I am sure that your stand to promote Ahimsa/Jeevdaya will bring you greater support and honour from the Aam Aadmi.
