I suppose it is simple to abuse others. And hard to change oneself - to avoid buying things in plastic wrapping, to choose to cycle and bus rather than go in cars, to stop using ACs,
We've been living for thousands of years in harmony with everyone. I don't want some Nagpur school to tell me what my religion is.
The same people are exporting beef. The same people introduced 5 GMO crops in Maharashtra. The same people want to introduce GM Mustard. The same people promoted water intensive sugarcane cultivation in Marathwada and now are looking the other way when thousands are committing suicide.
Stop blaming everything on Muslim invaders and Christian missionaries. You make it seem like Hindus are incapable of anything and only listen to outsiders.
Until the social systems of the villages were in place, India was glorious. It was the hard work of the farmers and livestock keepers, artisans, traders etc which made the world turn to India. Not the writings of self isolated people.
The food habits of 2-3% population is being forced on the rest. This is the real minority appeasement.
Secondly, Muslims, Christians, SCs and STs make up 42% of the population. They all eat beef. Amongst the OBCs who make up 41% of the population, many groups eat meat as per their local custom.
Just because few communities don't eat meat, forcing others is diabolical.
Talking about dharmic values, with blood of innocents on the fingers.
Let the communities decide if they want to or not. The ideology of a few who've never been part of the masses cannot be allowed to pervert the country.
99 % of cow lovers are for rhetoric only and to target the poor Muslims and Dalits in to submission... India is a secular county not a Hindutva country ... Problem is RSS culture being imposed on us
Why do you need foreign investment, oil from countries where Abrahamic religions are official religions?
Why should the brave and mighty Nagpur thinktanks allow India to be used by MNCs for dumping their cheap products?
What do the Dharmic warriors go when the farmers commit suicide?
As for Nagpur not being a monolith, well they have their brainwashed foot soldiers everywhere to do the damage.
Neither the goshala model nor the medicinal products model have saved cattle. Only if you are from a village you will understand livestock. When a farmer sells an old cow, he uses that money to buy younger ones. If there is no one to buy, how will he sell?
All this perversion of the livestock ecosystem will only lead to
1) abandonment of old/sick cattle as seen in Gujarat, Rajasthan where they are hit by vehicles on the highways or die of starvation and thirst.
2) Farmers quitting using cattle.
Then, will be have cows in a zoo or goshala to safe them?
