Mahatma Gandhi and Animals

To my mind the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being. I should be unwilling to take the life of a lamb for the sake of the human body. I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man
                                                                        - Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi is a global icon, born in India more than a century ago. Today, the name Mahatma Gandhi is synonymous with  Non-violence. Honesty, Truth, Compassion, Hard Work, Kindness, and Non-violence were his virtues. Millions of people consider Mahatma Gandhi has their role model.

Mahatma Gandhi worked very hard for a peaceful society. Mahatma Gandhi wanted Human beings and animals to be happy. Nearly a century ago, in 1912 , Mahatma Gandhi vowed not to consume cow's milk after he learnt about a cruel procedure known as Phooka or Doom Dev.

Mahatma Gandhi was a Hindu and he had great regards for the sacred cow. Today, the cows in India are suffering so much. Indian farmers inject cows with oxytocin harmone to produce more milk. If Gandhi was alive, I'm sure Mahatma Gandhi would support the concept of vegan diet- plant based diet for the welfare of mankind.
