I don’t want my kids to believe that parrots ride bicycles: Raveena Tandon

Jul 05, 2018

The 'mast mast' girl of Bollywood has released a videologue to sensitise parents towards animal cruelty in circuses.

New Delhi: Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon has shared a video message expressing her concern about animals suffering in circuses rallied her support for their freedom. Through a videologue, she aims to sensitise parents towards animal cruelty in circuses and is also urging the government to end this animal suffering.

The 'mast mast' girl of Bollywood regretted that animals in circuses are beaten, forced and harassed both physically and mentally to perform for our viewing pleasure.

She believes that animals do these activities out of fear. “I believe that animals should not be subjected to cruelty for our entertainment. We, as the most privileged species on the planet should not, and need not treat animals with cruelty. I don’t want my children to believe that dogs carry umbrellas or that parrots ride bicycles. These animals do it for the fear of punishment,” she said.

Raveena Tandon has been supporting the Federation of Indian Animals Protection Organisations (FIAPO), which along with Four Paws, has been campaigning for the freedom of these abused animals.

In her videologue, she also appeals for their freedom to the Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change (MoEF&CC) saying, “I support FIAPO’s End Circus Suffering campaign, which has freed hundreds of animals from cruel circuses. Dear Minister of Environment and Forests, Dr Harsh Vardhan, as an active social worker and an actor, I urge you to put an end to the use of animals in circuses through an improved legislation. Let us join hands and let these creatures be where they belong.”

Earlier, Raveena had also written a letter to the Minister of Environment, Forests and Climate Change to impose a ‘complete and immediate end’ to the use of all animals in circuses.
