Fast Against Animal Sacrifices Gaya 9 October (Dainik Jagran). The Sarva Mangala Shanti Mission (Universal Mangala Peace Mission) has announced a one day fast for the 11th of October against the practice of animal sacrifice at the famous Shaktipith (site sacred to the goddess) of the temple of Mangala Gauri. The missions organiser Balesh Bhikshu (Bhikshu is the term for a Buddhist monk) said today that the bloody practice of animal sacrifices at sites sacred to the gods was inhuman. Due to it violence increased. He said that wherever the practice of animal sacrifice is current it should be stopped immediately. Mr Bhikshu said that it was in this connection that the fast had been announced on the 11th of October at the Mangala Gauri temple and he appealed to all peace loving people to take part.
