Khil Raj Regmi, Prime Minister of Nepal
The campaign believes that the festival is an abuse of animals. The campaign would like Nepal to adopt slaughter-free religious festivals that can be enjoyed by many without the need to kill sentient beings. In 2009, over 200,000 animals were killed in two days and 250 butchers were brought in to carry out the killing that meant that each butcher would of killed 400 animals a day.

The problems that occured were knives becoming blunt, animals not being killed outright, the butchers who slaughtered the buffalo were half the body weight of the animal, and decapitation of a large animal not restrained is inhumane.
