    Jackie sends bunny cake to Indian Health Minister

    July 10, 2014

    Former Miss Sri Lanka and Boloywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has sent a bunny-shaped vegan cake with the words "Be Sweet to Bunnies - Ban Animal-Tested Products" written in icing, along with a letter to Indian Health Minister Harsh Vardhan hoping to urge him to have a heart for animals, according to a news report published by the Times of India.


    The ToI report said: “Jacqueline, who is a vegan, was delighted to learn that after banning the testing of cosmetics and their ingredients on animals, the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare is now considering amending The Drugs and Cosmetics Rules, 1945, to include a ban on the import and sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals anywhere in the world.


    In her letter, Jacqueline has written, "There was no news sweeter to my ears than when I heard that your ministry included the new rule in The Drugs and Cosmetics Rules, 1945, which bans the testing of cosmetics and their ingredients on animals in India in favour of modern, non-animal and human-relevant test methods.


    Along with sending the vegan cake that accompanies this letter, I am writing to request that you be sweet to bunnies again by passing the proposed ban on the import and sale of cosmetics if they or their ingredients have been tested on animals".


    She continues, "My many compassionate friends and I were thrilled to know that your ministry agrees that the only way to be a bunny's honey is to let bunnies live freely, as they should, and not by caging them and conducting painful tests on them for lipstick and mascara.
