Animal Rights

It is possible to perform an immoral act against non-human animals. In order to perform an immoral act against a non-human animal, one must define the word "morality". According to the definition it means conformity to the rules of right conduct, on the other hand immorality means wickedness or evil. So in absorption a wicked or an evil act against an animal is an immoral act also. I believe that it may be possible to perform an immoral act against an animal because they are creatures just like us. They also feel pain and emotions just like us humans. When someone breaches our rights, we get hurt which often results in some kind of action. But the animals were helpless, it can't take any action because they are less intelligent then humans. However the humans are the supreme and superior beings on this planet and that we are on the highest evolutionary scale, but still that does not give us the right to perform wrong acts to the animals. Some of the worst or immoral acts that I strongly oppose to are animal experimentation, entertainment involving animals, hunting and finally habitat destruction.
When religious leaders were decided finally lifted these prohibitions, it was too late, vivisection was already entrenched in medical and educational institutions. Now imagine ourselves in animals’ shoes, whose homes are destroyed everyday by the minute. As an evil in nature as animal experimentation sounds, so is the entertainment business involving animals.
