Just when you think you’ve seen it all…

Heart breaking.

Quote from the Jain website JainSamaj discussing that “milk” is far from “ahimsa” (non violent) but indeed a very cruel product. For emphasis I added cursive script.

“Female calves may join the ranks of the milk producers, but the males, the "byproducts" of the dairy industry, are generally taken from their mothers anywhere within a day of birth to a week, so milk is far from cruelty free or ahinsak! Quite the contrary. Some of these calves endure 14 to 17 weeks of torment in veal crates so small that they can't even turn around. Others are tied up and left to starve which usually takes a week of intense suffering, after which their bodies are collected and sold to the Kora Kendra as ahinsak leather since the animal has died a 'natural' death."

Anyone in India, maybe somebody from the Jain community, actively addressing this extreme cruel animal issue?

Anyone feels this issue, starving baby animals in order to produce "natural leather"  is worthy of  international attention?
