Compassion for life and environment is constitutional in India!

I am particularly impressed with the vow to not engage in modern scientific (cruel and environmentally devastating) agriculture.

Article 48 states: “The State shall endeavor or organize agriculture and animal husbandry on modern and scientific lines and shall, in particular, take steps for preserving and improving the breeds, and prohibiting the slaughter of cows and calves and other milch (milk giving) and draught cattle.” Article 51 A(g) further stipulates that: “It shall be the fundamental duty of every citizen of India to protect and improve the Natural Environment including forests, lakes, rivers and wildlife, and to have compassion for all living creatures.”
