John Abrahams Has A Valid Point About Pets

John Abraham is one of those celebrities who has always sincerely done something about animal welfare.

Remember how he signed and auctioned his North-East United FC jersey and the funds collected were redirected to Animal Rahat, an NGO that provides for animals desperately in need of care. Not many know that John had also called the Ministry of Environment and climate and had urged them to make all circuses in India animal-free. In a recent conversation with Bollywoodlife, John gave his piece of mind on the recent incident where a pup was thrown off the terrace. Expressing his views on why India desperately needs stricter animal laws, he said,

“Though I am not in a position to speak about this and I’m not completely aware about the laws, but I think we need stricter laws for animals. There is no other way. We need to have laws in place that could actually control and bring people to book and stop them from harming any living being. We are talking about a pup being thrown off a terrace! Sad, ridiculous and unheard of!”

When he was asked to give his views on culling of animals, he had a valid point to make. He said,

You are speaking to an animal lover (laughs) so I would never agree to culling of animals, but it’s not just because I am biased. There could be an argument that I am irrational — yes, I am irrational — but I love animals — and love is sometimes irrational. I believe if you really want to maintain an ecological balance then you have to draw a plan for the future rather than reacting to a situation. You got to be proactive. “Rather than face a situation where an excess of population of a certain species calls for a culling of a population as the plan is now, prevention is better than cure to prevent that from happening.”
