STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Requesting for honorary appointments of counselors for awareness of students and for holding sensitization and counseling programmes on animal-rights and peaceful co-existence with animals and birds in the University, a group of animal lovers under the banner ‘Save Animals and Value Environment’ (SAVE) led by Rumpy Madaan met the Vice Chancellor, University of Jammu, Prof Manoj K Dhar on Tuesday. Highlighting a recent incident, wherein a stray female dog was beaten to death by Canteen owner’s son inside Nehru Boys Hostel, along with some other students, the SAVE members requested the VC for making honorary appointments of counselors in the University. “Recent spurt of violence against animals by students from various colleges and universities in different States shows deteriorating moral values, stress and lack of consciousness. Our counselors will spread awareness among students regarding compassion towards animals and animal rights besides addressing their problems, so that they can vent out their frustrations before it results in any violent act of brutality,” the members suggested. Prof Lalit Sen Sharma, Department of Computer Sciences and IT asked for display of some posters on compassion for animals inside the campus. Vice Chancellor agreed to the suggestions put forth by SAVE members and asked Prof Shailender Singh Jamwal, Dean Student Welfare to arrange some awareness programmes in the campus with support from SAVE. Rumpy Madaan thanked the Vice Chancellor for his progressive and positive approach towards the issues discussed in the meeting.
