Jet Airways criticised for 'encouraging' animal abuse

The Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations said in a statement Tuesday: "We were extremely disturbed to see Jet Airways glorifying photographs of matadors tormenting bulls with banderillas sticking to their bleeding backs in their magazine."

Responding to the organisation's calls and e-mails, Manech Davar, executive publisher said: "We do understand the points raised by you and would not want to come across as an organisation and publication that encourages unjust endeavours. We assure you that there wouldn't be any more features on the same in JetWings."

The organisation said that in Spain, the Canary islands outlawed the sport of bull fighting way back in 1991, followed by Barcelona and Catalonia, which were centres of this tradition.  "There is growing condemnation of bullfighting throughout Spain, across the EU and around the world," the statement said.
