Contesting the Animal Right : The Liberationist Challenge imposed by Dalit Vegans and Animal Right Advocates

The Animal-Right is what we can call the mob of Hindutva tainted individuals from the Right-wing, who go about injuring, terrorizing and even killing Dalits in the name of protecting the ‘holy cow’. But the Animal-Right is not only morally fallacious, but it is also logically fallacious, and does not further the cause of animal welfare, nor does it do anything to alleviate animal cruelty. In this regard, a new and astounding animal liberation and veganism front championed by the Left-wing does exactly what is needed in the true spirit of alleviation of animals and animal rights, and morally sound ways.
