Let’s not kill animals

Imagine a sheep drags you by the neck and slashes your throat with a sharp-edged object… does it arouse an intense feeling of pain? It is not pain in reality, though; it doesn’t kill us, it doesn’t harm us. But what about the real assault (slaughtering) on speechless animals, which we are used to doing every now and then.
It has been thoroughly investigated by archaeologists that it was merely the shortage of agricultural food which made people slaughter animals and satiate their hunger by eating them up. Or perhaps, the primitive people weren’t evolved enough that they could cultivate alternative food to eat instead of slaughtering animals and causing them pain.
But after some time of human civilisation, people started to tame animals. In fact, goat was among the first animals to be tamed. What followed was the cultivation of plants.
One must be wondering that how did humans start murdering animals again. The answer lies in our tendencies: we murder animals merely to satisfy the tongue. Even though there are other alternatives available to us. Humans can live on edible plants which have no sentience – they do not feel physical pain.
Having given another alternative by God, why don’t we sustain ourselves on such a blessing without committing such a crime?
Let us all take an oath to let animals live. Things which teach us to slay them for our selfish stomach should be put to an end.
