John requests Central Govt to ban use of animals in circuses

Even though John Abraham must have played the bad boy on screen a few times, he is an angel when it comes to helping animals. No wonder then, he has been honoured with the title of ambassador for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India's campaign to fight circus cruelty.

John, on behalf of PETA India, now has dashed off a letter to Jayanthi Natarajan (Minister of Environment and Forests) requesting her to make all circuses in India animal-free. In his letter, he wrote that, "Unlike human performers, animals are forced to entertain through the use of fear, pain or hunger. Whips, clubs, hooks and other weapons are often used to inflict pain on elephants and other animals in order to force them to perform confusing tricks. I hope you will look into your heart and make the compassionate choice by issuing an immediate ban on the use of all animals in circuses."
