  1. Wow! Is this the country where beef ban in Bharat was taken with surprise and dark sarcasm? The way u hate dog/cat/horse meat, Hindus hate every meat other than chicken/mutton/fish. Hindus are in dense majority in Bharat and the only country in the world which has so many Hindus. 45% are pure vegans and they disapprove consumption of beef in specific, in Bharat.
