The birth of the great Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, on the 2nd of October is also rightfully observed as the World Farm Animals Day (WFAD) in all over the world. Driving from the teachings of non-violence towards all living-beings, Mahatma Gandhi provides adequate inspiration for vegetarians and animal activists worldwide to protest the cruelty meted out to animals specifically raised in farms as food.
The World Farm Animals movement designated 2nd October as a worldwide annual protest against factory farms and slaughterhouses to voice their discontent regarding the abject and cruel slaughter of animals for consumption. An approximate of 58 billion animals are killed in the factory farms and slaughterhouses worldwide to produce meat, eggs, and dairy.
