A writ petition in the Supreme Court argues that animals have legal entitlements. A look at the Constitution and the judiciary’s progressive animal rights record
Kochi resident Narayanan Prakash did the unthinkable. In April, during the initial stages of the lockdown, he approached the Kerala High Court seeking a vehicle pass to ensure that his cats got their favourite biscuits. Not only did the court direct that the pass be issued, it also opened its doors to legal redress for four-legged beings. The court traced the right of the petitioner and, incidentally, of his cats to Article 21 — a facet of the citizen’s right to life, liberty and privacy. It also relied upon the Supreme Court’s (SC) landmark judgment in the 2014 Jallikattu case which declared that an animal’s right to humane treatment was part of “life”, defined expansively to include the lives of animals. The court bolstered its conclusion by invoking Article 51-A[g] — a fundamental duty that obliges citizens to show compassion towards living creatures.
