NEW DELHI, May 26 (AFP) - Tibet's exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai
Lama, has expressed horror at the cruel treatment of cattle in India, an
animal rights group said Friday.

The Dalai Lama has written to Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee
asking him to "do all he could" to end the abusive treatment of animals.

"The ill treatment of cattle in India is indeed too horrific for words
=2E.. I therefore appeal to you to look into this matter," the letter
said.

The Dalai Lama said his attention was drawn to the problem by US-based
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which has threatened
India's leather industry with costly lawsuits if it continues with its
cruel treatment of cattle.

"I have seen seen their report and the video resulting from their
investigation and I totally agree with them that the treatment of cows
is too horrific ... Many in India probably do not have any idea of this
cruelty against cattle," the Tibetan leader said in his letter,
published by PETA.

Three leading US retailers -- Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic -- have
agreed to stop using leather from India after a strong protest from
international celebrities spearheaded by PETA.

Jason Baker, spokesman for the India branch of PETA, said the decision
came after rock star Chrissie Hynde led demonstrations outside their
stores.

PETA alleges cattle in India are marched for days and crammed into
lorries before being killed. Cows and calves which collapsed have chilli
peppers and tobacco rubbed into their eyes and their tails broken in an
effort to keep them moving.

Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has also previously appealed to
Vajpayee to help stop the abuse of Indian cows.

The veteran rocker recalled Mahatma Gandhi, India's independence hero
who campaigned throughout his life for vegetarianism. Gandhi had once
said that a nation and its moral progress could be judged by how it
treated animals.

The Dalai Lama is the latest celebrity to join the PETA campaign, which
has enlisted the support of others including former Baywatch star Pamela
Anderson Lee and musician Crispian Mills, former lead singer of the
British group Kula Shaker.

That is not true. Many Belgian posters and Europeans like to critize America and Americans. Im just reminding these people that Belgium is not innocent either. It is fashionable to be AntiAmerican. fine, but dont be onesided. I love Belgium. I go there on vacation, and Belgians are among the nicest people i met. Kim Clijsters Rules. I said nothing bad about Belgium. I just mentioned that their human rights record is flawed like other nations. Volcana starts 10 threads a day bashing the US, but how many people defend US when he does that? Lighten up, the board is for discussion, and also debate. I didnt mean to hurt anyones feelings. it also hurts US feelings when people criticize us. Mostly i hate people calling us Facist. It is not true

Yeah maybe because there is something obviously wrong ?

Im just reminding these people that Belgium is not innocent either.

Ohh no because whatever Belgium does wrongfully is just as horrendous Internationally then the W.O.T

I didnt mean to hurt anyones feelings. it also hurts US feelings when people criticize us. Mostly i hate people calling us Facist. It is not true

Well as you said, this board is for debate and discussion, if you are going to feel hurt/threatened by what people may say about your country, be prepared to have those emotions paradoxed when you do the same.

I totally eat beef and have no problems with it, but I myself could not bring myself to kill a cow.

I have no problems at all, though, throwing a live lobster into a pot of boiling water or nailing it between the eyes with a steak knife.

It is a pity that the pop-eyed no talent McCartney ever started the abuse of His fellow Humans ears
