Regarding the earlier post about MUIS’s stand on keeping and treating pets, Salina has written in to them. According to her, she decided to write to MUIS directly as a milder approach, rather than addressing them through the press as she felt it might create a fair bit of negative reactions.
On the same topic, the magazine that I mentioned yesterday has a section on religion and pets too (Pg 63). However, it did not touch on MUI’s stand: if a pet causes conflict in the family, it is permissible to kill it. CWS hopes this particular suggestion by MUIS can be changed as it conflicts with responsible pet ownership which is what all the local animal welfare groups are advocating.
