Manpreeth Singh Nishter Promotes Vegan Living, Protects Animals From Experimentation, and More

Hyderabad – In honour of International Volunteer Day on 5 December, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has named Hyderabad resident Manpreeth Singh Nishter its Volunteer of the Year.

PETA counts on Nishter’s help during its events in Hyderabad and celebrity photo shoots, such as this one for a campaign against cockfighting featuring Jwala Gutta, and to help coordinate its eye-catching street theatre–style demonstrations in the city. As a member of the government’s Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals, Nishter works to reduce the number of animals used in experiments and lessen their suffering. He also serves as honorary secretary for both Blue Cross of Hyderabad and People for Animals, Hyderabad, and as a long-time vegan, he volunteers with Hyderabad Vegans to promote cruelty-free eating.

“For years, PETA has counted on Manpreeth Singh Nishter to help us encourage others to make kind choices for animals,” says PETA CEO Dr Manilal Valliyate. “From organising demonstrations to promoting vegan meals, Manpreeth works hard to inspire people across Hyderabad to help stop animal suffering.”

In addition to his busy volunteer schedule, Nishter works as a regional sales manager for a multinational corporation and enjoys pottery and photography.

PETA’s motto reads, “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.”
