As of today, India has placed a country wide ban on animal testing for cosmetics. This is part of a significant move towards improving conditions for animals in the world, it should be celebrated as a great breakthrough in a long walk to freedom from suffering for animals. Much of the credit for this success has to go to the Global Be Cruelty Free campaign.
Alokparna Sengupta, Humane Society International’s Be Cruelty-Free India campaign manager said,”Effective today, the animal testing for cosmetic products and ingredients is outlawed throughout India. This is a huge victory for animals in laboratories.”
This is an example of what can be acheived when we all get together and work together, celebrities, politicians, activists all contributed and India has moved forward, in line with Dharma to make the world a better place.
