Justice for Roosters Reportedly Subjected to Ritualistic Sacrifice

Target: Dr. Arvind Sukumar IPS, District Police Chief, Kozhikode Rural, Kerala, India

Goal: Ensure strict enforcement of animal protection laws to stop ritualistic animal sacrifices.

A shocking breach of animal rights and legal mandates was reportedly averted at Sri Puthari Chathoth Temple in Kunnummakkara, in the Indian state of Kerala, thanks to the vigilance of animal rights activists. Allegedly, this temple, nestled in the tranquility of Kozhikode, was the scene of a grim ritual that involved the sacrifice of roosters, a practice both archaic and distressing. The activists, affiliated with PETA, intervened timely, spotlighting not only the apparent cruelty involved but also the blatant disregard for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.

Intricate details of this unsettling event were brought to light when PETA India reportedly presented a video from the 2023 ritual, illustrating the grim reality of these acts. These sacrifices, reportedly conducted within the temple premises, directly contravene the Kerala Animals and Birds Sacrifices Prohibition Act, 1968, and the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The legal framework is explicit: such actions are not only inhumane but categorically illegal, with statutes in place to prevent such atrocities. Yet, the persistence of these practices signals a worrisome gap in enforcement and awareness.

The cessation of these sacrifices is imperative, not only as a matter of legal compliance but as a moral obligation to evolve beyond archaic and cruel traditions. Urge for a decisive and immediate response to this incident. It is not merely about stopping a single act of cruelty but about affirming our societal commitment to compassion and legal righteousness. Seek not just to prevent future sacrifices but to ensure that those who flout the law face consequences, reinforcing the sanctity of life and the rule of law.


Dear Dr. Arvind Sukumar IPS,

I write to you, deeply troubled by the recent reports of intended animal sacrifices at Sri Puthari Chathoth Temple in Kunnummakkara. This practice, a stark violation of both the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, and the Kerala Animals and Birds Sacrifices Prohibition Act, 1968, reflects a disturbing disregard for the laws designed to protect the most vulnerable among us. It is alarming that such practices, clearly outlined as illegal, seemingly continue to be planned, threatening not only the welfare of animals but the very fabric of our legal and ethical standards.

The evidence presented by PETA India, reportedly including a video depicting the ritual, underscores the urgency of this matter. This is not merely an issue of stopping a tradition but of upholding the law and ensuring that the principles of compassion and justice are not overshadowed by acts of cruelty. The laws are clear, and your role in enforcing them is crucial. It is essential to recognize that these rituals do not exist in isolation but as part of a broader societal context that either condones or condemns cruelty.

I urge you to take swift and decisive action to ensure that the laws are fully enforced and that those who engage in or facilitate such illegal acts are held accountable. It is only through stringent enforcement and the imposition of legal consequences that we can hope to deter future violations and foster a culture of respect and compassion for all living beings. Let this incident not be merely a footnote of cruelty averted but a turning point in our collective commitment to justice and ethical conduct.

  1. Positively gruesome and sadistic. These perpetrators need to be charged to the fullest extent of the law and sentenced accordingly. Please uphold existing laws aimed at preventing such sadism.

  2. these people are archaic in their beliefs. maybe they should start cutting their own throats to really ward off some evil spirits.

  3. Jaime Perez says:

    This horror is being conducted in a temple?? What’s wrong with these people? They are sadistic devils.

  4. Anyone whi believes this is holy is a depraved fool. Any so called religion that advocates animal sacrifice is satanic and its followers are bound for hell. They all deserve eternal damnation, and thats exactly whats waiting for them
