Urgent Call for Justice: Animal Activist Allegedly Assaulted for Protecting Stray Dogs

Target: Bhagwant Mann, Chief Minister of Punjab

Goal: Ensure legal accountability and safety for the animal activist and the stray dogs she protects.

A disturbing incident has emerged from Dugri, where an animal activist, dedicated to the welfare of stray dogs, was allegedly assaulted by local residents. The activist, involved in feeding and medical care of these animals, reportedly faced violent objections on the night of May 19. This alleged egregious confrontation not only highlights a blatant disregard for animal welfare but also raises severe concerns about community hostility towards humanitarian acts.

Further details indicate that the altercation escalated after residents reportedly threatened the activist with dire consequences if she continued her compassionate activities. This resistance to animal welfare efforts allegedly culminated in physical violence, emphasizing a disturbing intolerance towards both the activist and the animals she aimed to protect. Such allegations, if true, necessitate a serious reconsideration of community values and legal protections for animal welfare advocates.

This petition is necessary to address the alleged hostility and ensure that such acts do not go unchecked. It is imperative that we demand immediate investigation and appropriate legal actions to safeguard individuals committed to animal welfare and uphold the rights of the stray animals in question. This case must catalyze stronger protective measures and legal frameworks supporting animal activists. Take immediate action.


Dear CM Mann,

We are writing to express our grave concerns regarding the alleged assault on an animal activist in Dugri, who was reportedly attacked while engaging in the care of stray dogs. According to allegations, this activist, along with her team, faced severe hostility and physical violence from local residents for merely performing acts of kindness and medical attention to strays. Such actions, if true, are not only inhumane but also illegal, reflecting poorly on community standards and law enforcement responsiveness to acts of violence.

The reported details of this incident are particularly alarming—threats and physical assault against a person providing necessary aid to animals demonstrate a serious societal issue that demands immediate attention. This reported behavior could potentially deter other compassionate individuals from engaging in animal welfare activities, which are essential in areas with significant stray animal populations. We urge you to take swift and decisive action to investigate these allegations thoroughly and to bring those responsible to justice if found guilty.

As concerned citizens and advocates for human and animal rights, we implore you to treat this case with the urgency and seriousness it deserves. We demand that appropriate measures be taken against the alleged perpetrators and that further safeguards be implemented to protect animal welfare advocates from such hostility in the future. Our community must show resilience against violence and steadfast support for acts of kindness and care towards all beings.
