A prominent judge has passed that veganism should be recognised as an ethical religion in a recent ruling in the United Kingdom. Veganism is a philosophical thought where the followers refuse to destroy animal life for food or garb and depend on plat based sources for sustenance. Previously this thought process had been seen as an idea but this recent ruling has transcended the thought process to be seen as a philosophical belief or a religion that is more ethical in nature than spiritual.

"I'm extremely happy with the outcome of this hearing and for the words of the judge who clearly understood what ethical veganism is. I didn't expect to have a judgement today but the overwhelming weight of the evidence we have provided seems to have been sufficient for the judge to conclude that I'm the ethical vegan I say I am, and that ethical veganism is a protected 'non-religious philosophical belief.Many people have supported me because they, or their friends, have experienced discrimination for being ethical vegans,'" said JordiCasamitjana, a vegan who has faced heat at his workplace for being a follower of veganism.

Veganism is a lifestyle that has been gaining popularity especially amongst millennials for its various health benefits as well as a though process which they deem to be more civilised. Many fast-food joints and other food joints have been coming up with vegan options for meat variants in order to cater to the rising trend of veganism.
