Lawmaker defended & enjoyed cockfighting during harvest festival


Makar Sankranti is a harvest festival.

Like any other livestock, chickens are private properties and are harvested.

“Our Eggs (aka Gamecocks) Are Our Property.”
– United Nations of Cockfighting (UNOFC)
Principle #9

Broiler chickens are slaughtered or harvested for meat, typically, at 30 days of age.

Layer chickens lay eggs as production harvest. Then when the layer chickens are not producing enough eggs anymore, they are culled or slaughtered for meat harvest.

Cockfighting is gamecock farming and sports.

“We Loved Our Gamecocks (aka Eggs) More Than Anything.”
– United Nations of Cockfighting (UNOFC)
Principle #10

Gamecock chickens are multi-purposes chickens.

  • Gamecock egg harvest from 5-6 months of age.
  • Gamecock meat harvest at any age and gender.
  • Gamecock DNA or genetic harvest. They are used to produce more robust species of layer chickens, broiler chickens, and fancy chickens.
  • Harvested as lovable and beautiful gamecock pet of any age and gender.
  • Gamecock rooster performance harvest; like race horses. Gamecock roosters are fought (from 7 months to 10-15 years of age) for immortal greatness; to be read and/or watched by future generations of passionate gamecock farmers and lovers. The “greats or multiple winners” and their direct female relatives will produce the next generations.

“Cockfighting Is The Only Reason There Are Great Gamecocks And Great Cockfighters.”
– United Nations of Cockfighting (UNOFC)
Principle #11

Ruling party MLA defies HC ban, inaugurates cock-fighting session in Eluru

Jan 13, 2016 | Age Correspondent | Hyderabad

The MP was seen holding the cockerel in his hand and defending his action by citing that cock-fighting was a traditional event.

Hyderabad: Ruling Telugu Desam MP, Murli Mohan Maganti, inaugurated a cock-fighting session in the Eluru stadium, West Godavari district, on Wednesday despite a ban on the age-old practice by Hyderabad High Court.

The MP was seen holding the cockerel in his hand and defending his action by citing that cock-fighting was a traditional event.

The cock-fighting event, that is conducted around the Pongal or Makar Sankaranti festival in AndhraPradesh and Telangana, faced a ban by the HC after PILs were filed by Human Society International India, an NGO, seeking a ban on the event.

The PIL stated that the ‘evil practice’ resulted in deaths of several birds and that many people belonging to the middle class and the down-trodden sections are investing huge amount of their hard-earned money and eventually losing it on gambling related to cockfight.
