why we should discourage rearing
of silkworms
to the ahimsa philosophy

Ahimsa silk is also known as peace silk. In this method, the silk is produced without killing silkworms. 
Normal process of obtaining silk involves killing of silkworms. The animal rights activists or who belive in ahimsa philosophy have criticised this type of sericulture. They believe that we should not hurt any living organism. Thus, according to this philosophy, we should avoid rearing of silkworms to obtain silk by killing them.
