To the Editor, The Hindu.
Vegetarianism is India's gift to humanity though the number of vegetarians is dwindling because of the India's senseless imitation of the west in all aspects.
The headline in the 'Hindu' of the January 22nd, 05 'Security Beefed up for Kanchi Shankaracharya's trial...' smacks of deceit of gullible readers who are misled to believe the title "The Hindu' stands for some thing representative of the Hindu culture and people. Hindus believe that killing of any living being is sinful because God lives in all beings. The mantra 'Sarvabootha nivasosi Vasudeva namostute' is chanted by Hindus every day.
Slaughtering of a cow is doubly sinful there is no other animal who serves the human being like a cow. From giving the life giving milk to tilling and manure. Even after its death (natural)it renders itself useful. (Use of the hide).
So the 'Holy Cow' is not a fad but expressing of humanity's gratitude and reverence to the single most useful animal to the human kind. Lord Krishna is also known as Gopala.
Beef is savory for Christians and Muslims who have no such sentiments.
'The Hindu' should not only retract but apologize to its readers for the use of the term 'beefed up' which is an American term.
