Not that a slaughter of an animal can ever be 'humane', but many of the viewers of this clip seem to think it has been conducted in as proper a fashion as possible, under the circumstances. Others seem to think the conditions are standards of this slaughter are unacceptable.
Either way, we don't condone this practice and the reason for us to put up this clip is to encourage a debate that might possibly lead to better conditions for animal slaughter in different parts of the world. Only when we are aware can meaningful change be brought about so as opposed to us either not showing you this clip, or you asking for it to be taken off, let's understand the reasons for this practice and then seek change through a suitable body in India!
Our purpose is AWARENESS. We are a documentary film company, after all. So we bring you raw and uncut India at its worst and best, WITHOUT passing judgement.
Not for the faint hearted, this video shows a cold blooded butcher of a cow in India.
