A Hindu temple in Nepal has ended a centuries-old tradition of animal sacrifice, thanks to animal activists, India’s supreme court and the temple management’s wisdom.
Compassion: 1 Animal Sacrifice: 0
Nepalese temple authorities agreed to cancel the centuries-old Hindu tradition following a campaign from Humane Society International (HSI) and Animal Welfare Network Nepal (AWNN).
In a statement, Gadhimai Temple Trust Chairman, Mr Ram Chandra Shah, said: “The time has come to transform an old tradition. The time has come to replace killing and violence with peaceful worship and celebration.”
