media uproar paves way for ban on dog meat in Nagaland
A highly disturbing image of infant dogs being tied in sacks for sale led to a huge social media uproar over the past week. It was later discovered that these dogs were for consumption as it was legal in Nagaland. The practice has been protested by activists for years, but some activists are against the decision even now as they believe that it is against the state’s traditional practices. On June 30th, Shri Maneka Gandhi appealed to the government to consider the ban as it was inhumane and unabated. She requested everyone to email the Chief Secretary of Nagaland requesting him to stop dog bazaars and dog restaurants. Certain communities even believe that dog meat have medicinal properties, but Shri Maneka Gandhi stated that it is illegal in India and cannot be allowed under the guise of culture. In 2016, the state government had received a letter from an advocate in Assam on the same issue but failed to take any action. It is also learnt that the cabinet cited the Regulations of Food Safety and standards (FSS) which does not recognise dog meat as safe for human consumption.og meat in Nagaland
