The group ‘Vegans of Bengal’ considers that all animals including fishes, hens and goats have the right to live. Thus, it thinks that consumption of any kind of non-vegeterian food including chicken, mutton and fish is unethical. Recently, the members of the group also protested in front of KFC Diamond Plaza in Kolkata’s Dum Dum area. The group has planned to carry out the protests every Sunday.
