Well, I guess I am ignorant of Indian life and just imagined that the Hindus 
would never allow killing of cows for any reason - that picture has certainly 
been promoted in various documentaries on India that are produced here in the 
US and England.

You are cracking me up MJ, with your 3 question marked question - why should 
you be so surprised?

I AM serious - of course I don't have any actual experience of it since I have 
never owned cows or lived in the countryside, purely anecdotal. Not even sure 
how many do it, rich vs poor. I am sure it's more prevalent now and you need to 
balance that with the fact that cows are also abandoned and let loose once they 
are old because there may be Hindus that don't want to have them slaughtered 
yet think it's a burden to take care of them.

It's only during the elections that politicians raise these issues - may be 
wipe out a few people of the other religion so they could mobilize their 
followers - not sure how often this happens now since I don't follow the news 
in India - but there were several incidents where Hindus and Muslims would kill 
each other during election time, but otherwise co-exist fine.

Especially the Hindu Nationalist parties and the Islam based parties. And Gurus 
like Amma hobnob with Hindu Nationalist parties - it's disgusting.
