Dog lovers have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Independence Day on November 9, 2019.
A majority of Indian voters, though, have already made their plans to take to the streets in the name of dogs.
In Kerala, for instance, a large crowd of people turned out on November 1 to protest against the government’s decision to allow the sale of dogs in the state.
Dog lovers also plan to take the streets on November 10 to protest in the city of Kochi against the state’s move to introduce a new breed of breed of dog, named ‘independence day dog’.
The Kerala High Court ruled that the state government must allow breeders to sell dogs on its own soil and, if they are sold on the market, their owners will be allowed to keep the dogs for their own personal use.
The Supreme Court has asked the government to submit its views on the petition within a week.
While Kerala’s government has already announced that dogs will be sold only on its soil, the Kerala Animal Protection Society (KAPS) has argued that it is the right of dog owners to keep their dogs on the streets.
“We don’t want our dogs to be used to feed the dog market,” said KAPS chairman Dinesh Chaudhary.
“If we can sell our dogs, why can’t the government?”
The state government has defended its decision to permit dogs in Kerala, saying it will be better for the health of dogs, as it will reduce the number of stray dogs in our state and provide the environment to the breed.
However, the KAPS has not been convinced.
KAP president N Kishore, however, said he was confident that dogs and people can get along.
We have no issue with dogs in India, he said.
But, it’s a big question whether dogs are being allowed in Kerala in the right way.
According to the KAP, the state was among the first states to allow dogs in 1999.
Since then, the number has steadily grown.
“There are a number of reasons why dogs are becoming popular in Kerala,” said Chaudary.
“We have an atmosphere where dogs have a presence.
We have a large dog market.
People also like dogs.
So, dogs are not only a part of the Kerala culture but a part to many of our traditions too.
Dogs are not just the most popular animal but they are also part of our culture and our traditions.
We want to encourage the Kerala people to have a good time.
It’s our freedom of choice.
Kerala’s government is yet to issue a reply to the petition.
