PETA urges OU to use soya chunks instead of beef

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) today urged the Osmania University to use ‘tasty meat substitutes and education about meat production to bring harmony between students on campus.’ In a letter, addressed to Osmania University Vice-Chanceller, copy of which was released to media here, the PETA urged for discouraging such festivals from being held and keeping peace on the campus by treating students delicious meat substitutes such as soya chunks or mince in place of beef in canteens and to let students know that all meat products were cruelly produced, environmentally disastrous and extremely unhealthy. ‘When institutions allow the serving or promotion of meat, they take away the right of the public to a healthy planet A recent United Nations report stated that a global shift toward a plant-based diet is vital for saving us from the worst effects of climate change’, the PETA said. ‘There is no requirement for anyone of any religion or background to consume beef, pork or any other animal product. ‘Article 51 A(g) of the Constitution makes it the duty of every citizen of India to protect and improve the natural environment, including the wildlife, and to have compassion for all living creatures,’ the PETA added.
