Q: What is SAK?
A: SAK stands for Stop All Killing Association. We are committed to the building of a world order based on the principle of non-violence.
SAK is spearheaded by Dada J.P Vaswani, spiritual mentor and head of the Sadhu Vaswani Mission.

Q: What is the philosophy of SAK?
A: The philosophy underlying SAK has been preached by Sadhu T.L Vaswani and Dada J.P Vaswani.

  • To create and foster reverence for ALL Life, in the belief that ALL life must be regarded as sacred. This is the first step towards World Peace.

    Sadhu Vaswani said –
    If indeed, life is one, is not the animal too, my brother? And am I not his keeper?
    Meat eating will one day be condemned as murder!

    Dada J.P Vaswani said –
    Meat eating and world peace appear to be poles apart. Actually the two are interlinked. So long as animals and birds are slain to provide food for man, so long we will not see peace on the face of this Earth. If man kills an animal for food, he will not hesitate in killing a fellow man whom he considers as his enemy. The root cause of world wars is irreverence towards life.

  • To work towards recognizing and drafting a charter of Animal Rights

    Dada J.P Vaswani said -
    Animal Welfare is not the answer, Animal Rights are needed!
    The first right of every animal is to live. For we cannot take away what we cannot give. And since we cannot give life to a dead creature, we have no right to take away the life of a living one.

  • To create belief in the Brotherhood of all Life

    Sadhu Vaswani said –
    All killing is a denial of love. For to kill, or eat what another has killed, is to rejoice in cruelty. And cruelty hardens our hearts and blinds our vision and we see not that they whom we kill are our brothers and sisters in the One Brotherhood of Life.

    For me not to love bird and beast would be to not love the Lord. For his children are birds and beasts, no less than human beings.

Q: How does SAK propagate its cause?
SAK has numerous branches and volunteers around the world.

Every year, on 25th November, we celebrate World Meatless and Animal Rights Day. On this day, we invite all humanity to join us in abstaining from all food of violence – at least for that one day.

  • We celebrate this day by:
    Asking people to sign pledges to go without meat on November 25th.
    Saving animals from slaughterhouses
    Requesting Hotels and caterers to refrain from serving meat on November 25th
    Marching for Peace across the world in November 25th.
  • We work towards the cause in the long term by –
    Creating awareness about Animal Rights through newsletters, articles in the press and banners
    Working to get the Government to pass rules and laws that protect animal rights
    Approaching schools to educate children about the need for compassion towards animals, and the evils of meat eating.

Q: What is the history of SAK?
In 1986, it was suggested to Dada J.P Vaswani, by a devotee called Bob Gurbani, that Sadhu T.L Vaswani’s birthday should be celebrated as World Animal Rights and Meatless Day.
Since then, the Sadhu Vaswani Mission has been celebrating 25th November as annual Meatless day worldwide.

From 2002 onwards, the SAK (Stop All Killing) Association has been formally founded to take the Meatless Day campaign forward. Under the SAK Banner, we propose to carry on the good work that has been undetaken for the past 16 years.
