Sukhwinder Singh, Jennifer Winget, Anushka Ranjan, Jaya Bhattacharya, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Sharbani Mukherjee, Sanajay Keni come together with the students of Mithibai Colllege to take a stand against animal cruelty by joining the movement "India Unites for Animals" in BMS's Emblaze'17 - Business Management Festival which was held at Mithibai College on the 29th of September, 2016
Indian playback singer and composer, Sukhwinder Singh started the event on a hilarious note by saying, "9 years ago I had a puppy and now 9 years have passed and 8 puppies have me. I love going back home to my pets knowing that they are waiting for me."
Popular television actress Jeniffer Winget was in tears after watching the Bharda incident video that was played during the event.
"We share this planet with animals we can't be cruel to them, it is inhuman. I'm a proud pet parent. The Prevention of Cruelty Against Animals Act was made in 1960 for crying out loud and so much has changed since then." The actress further addressed the students to take a stand against animal cruelty and to take an action against animal abusers.
"Unless there is a hefty fine or punishment imposed against animal cruelty incidents like such will keep repeating. Rupees 50 to rupees 100 is too less a fine even a cup of coffee costs more than that nowadays." said producer Deepshikha Deshmukh.
"Don't do onto others what you would not want to be done onto you, be it a human or an animal, a person who can hurt a defenseless animal won't even think twice before hurting me or you and there will be more of Nirbhaya cases." quoted Jaya Bhattacharrya.
"Raising our voice for the voiceless, and getting them justice is one of our prime agendas." said Yash Ram Shahani, Mithibai College BMS's Emblaze'17 Chairperson & Founder.
The Principal, Dr Rajpal Shripat Hande concluded with the following note, "The people must change their attitude towards the animals. Since Human beings evolved from animals we must show gratitude towards animals and protect them."
