Is nothing sacred?

Oh crap, if the Indians have developed a taste for beef we are  f*ckedecologically.

From what I've heard those cows lead pretty miserable existences. Eating them is probably doing them a favor.

Ugh, not cool, been to India and the cows were amongst the nicest sentient beings there.

I'm gonna make the governor write my doodoo a letter, child.
And I'm gonna grind me up a White Castle slider out of India's sacred cow.

Behind the cattle rustling is a profound shift in Indian society. Meat consumption - chicken, primarily - is becoming acceptable even among Hindus. India is now the world's largest dairy producer, its largest cattle producer and its largest beef exporter, having surpassed Brazil last year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.
Let me count the ways:


1. Meat consumption and hindus ? Always acceptable and normal.
2. Chicken ? Always acceptable.
3. Cows ? They are not sacred in hinduism (the holiest of hindu books like Rg Veda is full of cow sacrifices and consumption). They are sacred in practice/culture due to historical factors like famines.

I wouldn't call picking up random street cattle rustling.  Sounds like a good portion are just there for the taking, and from the sounds of it not the best eating.  Sure it's theft if somebody owns the cow.  How does one steal a abandoned cow?  Feral cows, that's an odd though.

Sort of like the horse issue we have in some states.  People will abandon horses.  Numerous times I have read about somebody noticing new horses in their herd.  Also I have read about the number of horses getting pregnant from a male somebody decided to donate.  Then people got pissy when people started shipping them off to slaughter houses again.

you're right about them not being the best eating... The way a cow becomes sacred is by becoming old enough to no longer produce milk and calves. Then they are turned loose and are considered sacred.

I will say they play a useful part as organic trash-pickers... between cows, dogs, human ragpickers and occasional pigs, most of the trash left is the ubiquitous black plastic grocery bags. Those are forever.

On the one hand, I respect a peaceful religion and if they want to consider cows sacred and 'not food', I'm ok with that. On the other, I love a good steak...

Laws that prevent people from killing cattle that they own, just another case of religion trampling on the freedom of the people. Haven't they ever heard of the separation of church and state.

"These gangs mostly go after stray cattle, but they will also steal motorcycles and scooters," one police officer, Bhisham Singh, said in an interview. "They kidnapped a woman recently and gang-raped her."

Glad to see their priorities are in order.

Well, usually they rape the cows and stampede the women.

I was under the impression that yeah, it's acceptable for Hindus to eat meat (didn't know that beef was on the menu, but other meat was "kosher")---but frowned upon by concerned Hindu grannies and grandpas.  Much like the way Baptists aren't supposed to drink, even though Jesus turned water into wine.  Just too much temptation/enjoyment for uptight prudes.

Isn't the Rig Veda chock full of horse sacrifices, too?

1) Encyclopedia Britannica says cows are holy to the Hindus.

2) PBS' Nature says the same thing.

And yet, India was in fact one the world's largest beef exporter in recent years. Some Googling suggests it might be THE largest.

THAT is some cognitive dissonance.

We don't eat cows in the west either. Steers are not cows. Water buffalo of any gender are not cows (and are damn tasty.)

There is plenty of beef to be had without eating cows.

It's tradition, not law, and more Indians are abandoning the tradition.  That's why rustling is on the rise.
