In recent order Gujarat High Court has observed that :
* Article 51-A(g) of the Constitution of India, casts a fundamental duty on every citizen to have compassion for living creature. Article 51-A(g) not only imposes a duty on every citizen to protect all animals on which unnecessary pain is being inflicted.
* Infliction of unnecessary pain, or suffering on animals is anti-thesis to compassion, the duty as imposed by Article 51-A(g) of the Constitution of India. Nobody has a right to inflict pain or suffering to others inclusive of the animals and birds.
* Even birds can not be kept in cages by which they suffer a pain. To keep birds in cages would tantamount to illegal confinement of the birds which is in violation of right of the birds to live in free air / sky.
