|Respecting animal rights can ensure better human rights|
|Faheem Jehan Zaib|
Since animals are the victims of fate in our society, we have been working for ensuring animal rights and caring for their feelings for last ten years. We started a comprehensive animal rescue effort first time in the history of Pakistan and coordinated with a major rescue service in Punjab.
But whenever we talk about the rights, feelings, care or rescue of animals everyone whether poor or rich, illiterate or educated, asks the same question: "Why are you talking about animal rights when human rights have not been fulfilled properly?"
That was the biggest challenge for us in our society, and we started a campaign for animal rights leading to human rights. Our hypothesis is that "Respecting animals rights can ensure better human rights". The IARC 2017 shall be a platform to present our learning and experiences from a society where ensuring human rights is a challenge and we are motivating and convincing people for better animal rights successfully.
