Animal and Human , Rights of Human against Animal, Protection against cruelity


Animals are creatures which cannot express their views, like-dislike, and feelings as Human beings. So, they are in most of cases ill-treated. Human as most intelligent creature can do whatever is his own benefit. Human Rights are the shield for humans to save him from any obligations. One Human treat animals with cruelty and others are just viewers of such act, just because they are also not at all aware about the Rights which are ensured for Animals also. My motive behind this Research paper is to make everyone aware about the Animal Rights. The heart burning question in today’s world in other words a debate now-a-days is Animal Rights Vs Human Rights. So in this paper, I want to share the ―Rights of Animal against Human Beings‖ and ―Rights of Human being against Animals‖.
