Amul, one of the country’s largest dairy products companies, has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ban People for the ethical treatment of animals (PETA). Amul alleges that PETA is trying to defame the dairy sector of the country under a conspiracy. PETA recently urged Amul to start the business of vegan milk and food products.
According to media reports, Amul Vice Chairman has written a letter to Prime Minister Modi accusing PETA of conspiring to malign the country’s dairy sector. “Dairy sector is an important contributor to the country’s GDP, but misinformation being spread by such NGOs can have a bad effect on GDP,” he said in the letter. “This is an attempt to harm the dairy industry of the country. It appears to be at the behest of foreign companies,” the letter said.
According to them, the real purpose of PETA is to help those multinational companies, which are producing synthetic milk. He has told that about 10 crore people of the country associated with the dairy industry do not do any cruelty to animals for milk. Meanwhile, PETA India CEO, Manilal Valiyet, reacted in a statement saying that scares will not change the fact that vegan food is gaining popularity across the globe.
Let us tell you that vegan food means not to use any kind of substance obtained from animals in food. In vegan, people do not take eggs, meat, honey, milk, dairy products. In this, only fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lentils, nuts and seeds are eaten. In this diet, there is more focus on eating raw foods. People following a vegan diet do not consume anything that poses a threat to the environment or the existence of animals. They believe that people exploit animals for milk, eggs, honey etc., and hence such food habits should be stopped.
