As you read this sentence, hundreds of animals worldwide are being tortured, abused, and have their basic needs neglected. They are either being forced to fight or being skinned alive just because skinning them while their hearts are pumping, raises the quality of their fur, leather, or any other skin type. From dog fighting, animal hoarding, horse slaughtering, to hunting for entertainment, skin and precious body part, and torturing for profit, animal cruelty is one of the most destructive ills in society.
Animal cruelty is linked with sociopathic behavior, abusive nature towards their environment, and person lacks responsibility towards social conscience and morals. Apart from black money and greed, there is no other reason for such a widespread network of animal cruelty throughout the globe.
Drugs, gang activity, anti-social behavior, and violence are all somehow, one way or the other, linked towards animal cruelty. Since the mindset is so vicious, most of these people are most likely to behave similarly towards humans as well.
Watch the video below and see for yourself what People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) uncovered as they secretly made a video to reveal to all of you how the skinning of crocodiles is done. Here it is:
The video is disturbing, bone shaking, and just horrible. No matter how strong you are deep inside, you cannot un-see the wriggling of that crocodile who got electrocuted and butchered. Reptiles are loved by multi-billion dollar companies that produce accessories such as wallets, handbags, watches, jackets, etc. Louis Vuitton’s parent company Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH) also receives a supply of these skins.
People who torture speechless creatures have been declared as the worst kind in Islam. While it is necessary to take care of human rights, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) deemed it equally necessary to take care of the needs of animals as well. The least you can do is take care of animals you own, or that are around you.
These people, and this whole mafia network, from as low as the hunters who catch these animals, to as high up as the companies’ billionaire owners who do not even care to know how their products are being made, are all sick in their mind, spirit, and heart. It is a disease that needs to stop, and we certainly should play a part in this.
Keep the image of that crocodile fidgeting in pain in mind the next time you plan to buy one of the gorgeous looking genuine skin-made products. Stop buying such products like genuine animal fur coats, ivory products, reptilian skin products, animal oils, and so much more. There are hundreds of types of products being sold around the world. Organizations such as WWF, PETA, PAWS, IFAW, AWF, and others can only do so much on their part. The major change can only come from us, the common people. Please, if not for the people around you, help build a better environment for speechless creatures.
