There are times when you actually lose faith in humanity. For example, we are sure you are aware of the two men who threw a pup from a building just for fun. Fortunately, the brave dog survived and was aided with the required treatment immediately. People who abuse animals for no reason get away easily, thanks to the prevention of cruelty to animal act. This law was strong and powerful when it was drafted in 1960. But, if we see the situation today, it has miserably failed to safeguard animals for over two decades now. The lack of enforcement is the major cause here.

The Law of Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act has petty penalties of Rs.50, which further give encouragement to people who trouble animals just for fun. These penalties should be revised which are currently failing dejectedly to daunt animal abusers. Taking benefit of this outdated act, animal abusers have unrelenting dishing out immeasurable cruelty on animals.

Right now, Humane Society International (HIS) is doing every bit to revise this law with Draft Animal Welfare Bill. According to managing director of HSI, the parliament is likely to make few required alterations in the current Prevention of cruelty to animal act law, which will include imposing adequate penalties and punishments. HSI is making every effort which could help to revise the existing draft and promote animal welfare in a big way.
With the cruelty to animals being seen in the world today, it is extremely important for the government to modify the law and impose required punishments and penalties. animals can't speak for themselves, hence it is our moral duty to take care of them and make sure they get the life they deserve.
