A 100% Vegetarian City in India: The first in the world!

A group of Jain monks went on a hunger strike, forcing the Gujarat Government to ban the slaughter of meat and sale of eggs in Palitana. Virat Sagar Maharaj, a Jain monk, says, “Everyone in this world – whether animal or human being or a very small creature – has all been given the right to live by God.” Palitana is now the first city in the world to ban animal slaughter completely. 


Jainism, practiced by 5 million people in India, supports this move wholeheartedly.
