Mahavir Award 1

All the London Jain organizations celebrated Lord Mahaveer’s Birthday on Sunday 1st May 2016 in Harrow, where there were around 750 people present.  There Mahaveer Awards were presented by Nitin Mehta to two outstanding individuals. On behalf of The League Against Cruel Sports Darryl Cunnington and  Roger Swaine were monitoring an illegal fox hunt when they were brutally attacked. Darryl suffered a cracked vertebra in the neck and was hospitalized.  Roger also sustained injuries. The awards were given away by Dr. Mukul Shah and Dr. Freya Shah as well as Anubhai and Taraben Shah.

The citations on the awards are as follows:

You were brutally attacked while monitoring a fox hunt in Leicestershire. Your courage and compassion for defenceless animals is exemplary.  We call your kind act ‘ Abhay Daan’.

We salute you.
