    Pigs on Gupshup


    Since the last week or so, I have been noticing ads displayed on Gupshup. Vendors trying to sell anything from a Car to low rate phone services. The most interesting one that I have seen is a Piggy Bank (a little pink pig broken into pieces with change coming out of its belly). Is this an approval of pigs on Gupshup? If so, I strongly support the display of such ads. While it is a source of income for the sponsors of this Site, it also is an eye-opener for those who oppose pigs so profoundly.

    Its unfortunate that pigs get such a bad reputation...its not halal to eat a pig, yes, but to *be* a pig is another story. Pigs have a right to life and a right to a dignified life. I'm sure that pigs are very happy that Jews and Muslims have chosen not to slaughter them and have them for supper. I'm sure they love us more than they love those who partake in the joys of eating the flesh of their brethren.

    As far as the commmercialization of pigs goes, I don't totally agree with the use of their 'image' to sell products. Definitely not if they are not getting any compensation. All stars are given a stipend for the use of their image, pigs should be no different. Advertisements profiting from the image of the pig should be forced to make a donation, to the Achtung's Anti-pig Killing and Eating Foundation (AAKEF).

          Thank God some people think like that. We are not suppose to eat it but nothing wrong in looking at a pig.

              Actually, it's not the pig itself that's haram, it's the action of eating the meat of pig that is Haram.

              Shariah is a standard of our actions, not of objects.
