Every five years, the world’s largest animal sacrifice takes place just 200km south of Kathmandu. Nepal’s Gadhimai festival concludes with the ritual slaughter of tens of thousands of buffalo, goats, pigeons, and other animals in honour of the Hindu goddess Gadhimai.
Dear Prime Minister,
I am calling for an end to animal slaughter at the Gadhimai Festival in Nepal.
Animal sacrifice has been banned in Nepal but we need you to enforce the ban and stop the bloodshed.
