The India Unites For Animal Rights, an animal welfare group, has denied reports and video clips circulated on social media platforms, that insinuate that the group’s members gate-crashed an event on stray dogs menace organized on Wednesday at the Constitution Club of India.

The matter came to light when two parallel events were orgnised in the Constitution Club, one on ‘Peaceful Co-Existence: As Simple As ABC’ by India Unites For Animal Rights and the other addressed by former BJP Member of Parliament on menace of stray dogs.

The animal rights group session was addressed by eminent jurist Justice JR Midha and senior legal luminaries and attended by an audience of some 200 lawyers, teachers, actors, professionals and social activists including Mrs Romi Dev.

Several clips circulated on social media allegedly showed a clash between the organisers of the two events with some unruly scenes. India Unites For Animal Rights organisers, in a press statement, expressed their “shock” at the “allegations that our attendees gate crashed into an adjoining event” and called it a “completely false allegation”.

“Our entire event was filmed from beginning to end and no such thing took place,” the statement said. “We are told that the adjoining event organised by one Shri Vijay Goel was billed as a discussion forum to which all were invited. In that case there can be no ‘ gate crashing’.

An open discussion by its very nature invites all points of view and provides a platform for differing opinions where there is always the chance of friction.:

The rights group said, “By contrast, our session on the newly notified Animal Birth Control (ABC) Rules 2023 was peaceful, disciplined, positive and productive.”

“We are appalled that anyone should make false allegations against a well-intentioned citizens gathering to try and gain attention and misplaced sympathy and expect an apology,” it read.
