On Monday, PETA India sparks a protest against the newlyweds Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas for using animal at their extravagant wedding.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals India (PETA, animal rights organisation) yesterday criticise just-married couple Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas for exporting horses and elephants during their extravagant wedding.

Took to Twitter, PETA wrote: “Dear @priyankachopra and @nickjonas. Elephants for weddings live and chains and horses are controlled with whips, spiked bits. People are rejecting elephant rides and having horse-free weddings. Congrats, but we regret it was not a happy day for animals.”


In the post, PETA India also attached a video which emphasizes the harsh fact of these animals. In reality, white horses are sorely abused in Indian weddings.

As per report, they’re commonly lame, dehydrated and malnourished. Moreover, the horses are often whipped and suffer from wounds and bruises. For the decorative purpose in Indian weddings, the controller will put a painful spiked iron bit in the horse’s mouth. Even using spiked bits is prohibited in India, but most of the wedding forced the horse to wear one. The use of these iron bit was to cause the horse’s extreme pain for a more comfortable ruling.

As the cruelty of this custom, it isn’t compatible with celebration. Therefore, many organization tries to raise people’s awareness about this issue.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas exchanged vow in 1st December in an extravagant party at Umaid Bhawan Palace. Reportedly, the cost of the wedding made it become one of the most expensive weddings of the decade.

However, the couple has received sharp criticism from the public after the sky at Jodhpur was lit up with fireworks. Also, the former Miss World Priyanka Chopra was slammed and called her as a hypocritical person. Earlier, in a post, the actress calling for people stop to use firecrackers to protect the environment in Diwali.
