Sarvodaya led by Vinay Moray and its reps, rants in a court pliant in their continued tirade & effort in colluding with others to malign and close down VoSD – Part I

VoSD writing on this publication is seldom about personal statements made for us, except in exceptional cases where the falsity is hugely absurd and action reeks of outright vendetta – and with one purpose only ‘close VoSD’. This was the demand laid out by Sneha Maiyya in police station in front of several of my colleagues and police officers – complaint will be withdrawn if VoSD is closed down immediately! The irony is that none of the people and parties that wish that for VoSD provide any credible rescue service at all! And of course they have no mandate since VoSD still does not function on public money. What do you do in situations like this – keep making police complaints.
The low personal level at which Mr Bafna gave an ‘official’ response is given here, the allegations and developments of the repeated complaints made by Sneha Maiyya are here, and now you can see the language and level of false allegations by Sarvodaya Sevebhavi Sanstha on VoSD for restraining us from using a name we did not use, and organizing an TGIDS ’14 – an event which we were not organizing! Ms Maiyya has in earlier litigation been collusive with Mr Bafna, represented by the same lawyer (its a matter of public record), and Mr Vinay Moray was an employee of Mr Bafna at ARF (also a matter of public record).
The circumstance of the TGIDS ’14 show, and our lack of involvement has been referred to before here. It was clear that neither was VoSD an organizer nor have ever made a claim on the name or term. That discussion is purely between Blue Cross of India, Sarvodaya and the team that organizes TGIDS. The attempt through this disclosure is only to make a public record of what the plaint of Sarvodaya through Mr Vinay Moray has to say for a situation that did not involve us and yet makes us the defendant to put into effect what they really want!
These are a few nuggets from their pliant which they know to be absolutely false and is being concealed with the court, when VoSD records as a trust and a tax payer, of our transparency, process, automation, all are available with you from the beginning on this website, on the VoSD FAQs page and the VoSD Facebook page for years. When nothing that Sarvodaya does in any of these respects is a fraction of what we do everyday.
- ‘VoSD is a run as a ‘sub-business of TWB’, which collects funds in lacs, violates many sections of PCA, ABC Dog Rules 2001, runs a ‘shelter somewhere’ where none is allowed, their ‘business activities about animal welfare are non-transparent! (item 2, pp2)
- All these aspects have been covered as described above and a rubuttal will not be made since that will be supplied to the court
- From public records they have determined that dogs are euthanized and relocated and bogus reports are posted on the website’ and the FIR made by Sneha Maiyya is given as evidence. (item 2, pp2)
- The funny thing is that VoSD could not get that FIR without a court order but M/s Sarvodaya and Mr Vinay Moray has it evidently from the source! It points to collusion which will be brought out in further articles.
- ‘VoSD recommended to AWBI to close down ABC contractors such as ARF and AWS and targeted government departments and officials to hamper the ABC program in Bangalore’
- Right! Any real information on the execution of ABC program in Bangalore and maybe in India is found at VoSD. Its not convenient to any of these guys.
- ‘RTIs show that VoSD does ABC and collects public funds, not authorised by the BBMP! (item 3, pp2)
- Everyone knows VoSD doesn’t do ABC – but the attempt here is to bring us into the ambit of the corruption ridden world of NGOs running publicly funded ABC programs
- ‘VoSD is trying to use the goodwill of Sarvodaya’ (item 12, pp4)
- That’s just funny
In the same pliant they claim they do ABC for at least 300 dogs a month! Mr Moray and M/S Sarvodaya you do that on our money – taxpayers money that we pay to BBMP so there are no favors there. VoSD does more rescue of critical dogs in a month than you do ABC. And more rescue in a day than you do in a year. And its not on tax payers money. And that is the difference. But you know it already don’t you?

Outlook published ‘Prime Cuts’ with the byline ‘An air thick with innuendo and contempt produces a new stigma: meat-eating’. Amit Chaudhery wrote a rebuttal that Outlook refused to publish. It is published on ‘The Voice of Stray Dogs’ in its entirety.
“You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perspective is everything and reality is the servant of perception. A simple premise which spawned this rebuttal to the cover story by Saba Naqvi in Outlook magazine (October 20th 2014) entitled ‘Prime Cuts’ in part. The whole idea of a rebuttal, is the fact that a magazine entitled ‘Outlook’ ought to be balanced ; expectedly. A balanced, candid and equidistant outlook offers opportunity to form informed and correct opinion. A lopsided outlook achieves the opposite. I do not bother with the editorial position or the deliberate obfuscation of fact by the writer of this story who is the magazine’s political editor and a fairly familiar face. That is not my business and this is not a rant. Therefore, the case for a balanced outlook supported not by agenda or opinion, but by fact and reason. It cannot be the midnight at high noon the writer tries to create.The case of meat. Much like the proverbial question which has confronted Hamlet and everyone else before or since, ‘to be or not to be’ and to ‘do or not to do’ is a matter of personal deliberation and choice. It springs from several fonts which are finely defined by individuality, intellect, reason, knowledge, comprehension, just as much as by conditioning, nurture, situation and circumstance. What lies behind us and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. It is a very wide swing indeed.
The article rests on half- truths and twists to present a picture which begs freedom from the on-going or impending terrorism of the far right and/or the vegetarians. It underscores the ‘plight of poor Muslims’ who are ‘harassed’ and ‘prevented’ from practising their religious obligation of killing kine as routine and sacrificing them during festivals seeped in blood. The argument is sought to be built around the fact that cattle are treated poorly in India and forage garbage, so we just as well may eat them. In another attempt to build her biased thesis, the writer offers the fact that India is the world’s second most populous country, has the single largest count of cattle in the world and “we are an impoverished nation where many people are malnourished”. Beef, therefore, is necessary if we are to grow “tall and strong”. “So, isn’t the current anticow/beef/livestock tirade an assault on the cultural rights of the tribals too ? …It is time to realize that survival is linked to meat and its consumption. For many of our countrymen, it is a necessity”. What warped nonsense, especially the ‘necessity’ part. The narrative of perceived ills laments at a point “…pamphlets had been distributed for the past two years in Muslim localities across Gujarat, saying that cow sacrifice is now illegal……in his latest Vijayadashmi address, telecast by Doordarshan, the current RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said that ‘we feel it necessary to put a ban on meat exports, beef in particular and cow smuggling in the immediate future….Mostly, it is fuelled by hatred and stereotyping of the minority community…Just two weeks before the RSS chief’s Vijayadashmi address, Union Minister Maneka Gandhi had expressed concern about India being the world’s largest beef exporter and claimed that money from illegal animal slaughter was being used to perpetrate acts of terrorism”.
