pstudent12: 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.


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.

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

pstudent12: 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 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?

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.
