It is not human nature to kill someone. The primitive man may have been uncivilized, but even while living in the forest, he used to kill animals for only two reasons. One, to protect himself and the other to satisfy his hunger, that too when he did not have the option of food and drink. But when he learned to live with animals, raised them, used them for agriculture, business, transport, milk etc., then he accepted them as his companions and also started rearing and protecting them. But as he became civilized, the tendency towards collecting increased, greed increased, different types of thinking developed.
Creature whether human or animal has every right to survive and no one has the right to take his life. But in animals whether it is a cow, a buffalo, a goat or any other animal, it is never a human behavior to take the life of another animal to fulfill one’s own mirage. Taking someone else’s life for one’s own selfishness, to satisfy the hunger of the stomach is just a mirage. How long will God see such cruelty?
Many types of creatures became extinct due to being caught in the trap of hunters. At that time there was no one to hear the cries of those innocent animals and even if there were, they used to keep silent. In this period of development, they could not even imagine what would be the result. They are now in photographs only for the information of the new generation. There are many types of animal slaughter, the description of which seems strange to the mind. The pace of modernity has increased so much that time has become less and the trend of fast food has increased. The mouth does not get the right time to chew and digest the digestive system.
In the fourteenth verse of the seventeenth chapter of the Gita, it is said that non-violence, purity, simplicity is the best austerity, while useless violence is discarded. Any form of violence whether it is in the name of religion, in the name of traditions or in the name of selfishness should be given up. Instead of sacrificing (killing) an innocent animal, man should sacrifice (kill) the animal within himself. You should give up your unpleasant greed. There is a part of God in every living being, whether animal or bird or man, all are equal in the eyes of God, then why would God be pleased by killing his own part. How can eliminating one part of one’s body please the rest of the body?
