Malaika Arora Khan stands up against cruelty to horses
She has teamed up with the organizers of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), to be a part of a campaign, calling for an end to horse-drawn carriage rides.
This new print ad will see Malaika standing with a horse and the words read as:
“Compassion Is Beautiful — Say No to Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides”.
She spoke about the same and admitted that she believes it’s a cause that all should stand up for and say no to an industry that subjects intelligent horses to slavery. She opines that we can spare horses from the misery of being forced to work past the point of exhaustion and opt for other forms of transportation.
In April, however, the Supreme Court allowed for horse-drawn carriages to ply for the following six months or until a review petition is finally decided by the Bombay High Court, whichever comes first.
