    Namaste,

    Many, many Hindus just don't care about this issue, and if the politicians try to do something about it then they are voted out of office by a combination of non-caring Hindus and Muslims.......

    'Nitish Kumar has been sworn in as the chief minister of the northern state of Bihar after defeating Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP in a bitterly contested election.

    The grand alliance of regional parties took 178 seats of the 243 that were contested. The BJP only managed to win 58. Mr Modi and BJP president Amit Shah had raised the sensitive issue of cow slaughter and consumption of beef during the campaign - analysts say these were among the factors that alienated a large number of voters.'

    Pranam.

    What kind of Hinduism followed in Nepal. I have seen animal sacrifice in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Most likely this practice is followed all over India.

    How can GOD be pleased with Animal slaughter?


    In the past we had discussed about Ashwamedha Yagna and Humam Sacrifices.

    If this is acceptable then how are we different from Islam or Christianity which doesn't prohibit Animal Sacrifice.
    Thank you for putting this post over here. Animal sacrifices have come down due to a large extent due to the efforts of Buddha, Mahavira and Mahatma Gandhi in modern times.

    Animal sacrifice is not at all compatible with the teachings of ahimsa (non-violence) and karuna (compassion ) in Hinduism. The remnants of animal sacrifice traditions are still there in India and Nepal in tribal areas and these should be weeded out by Hindu saints , leaders and scholars through spreading of awareness among Hindu masses in this regard.

    Is this a personal opinion or do you have any proof of this claim?

    This happens in Kathmandu, not in tribal areas. Please fact check your statements.

    Pranam.

    Namaste Believer,

    Yes, I have read in the works of Vivekananda where he states that animal sacrifices came down in India largely due to the Buddha's efforts. Buddha's criticism of animal sacrifices has been noted in classical Hinduism as well, in the puranas.

    Mahavira was a contemporary of Buddha, and particularly noted for his teaching of non-violence and vegetarianism. Jain ascetics swept the ground ahead of them while walking in order to avoid killing insects and minute life forms. Obviously his teachings too probably created a culture of non-violence , along with Buddha, which reduced animal sacrifices in India at that point of time.

    Pranam.

    get one thing straight - whether or not the animal is 'consumed' after, the 'animal sacrifice' is not Hindu, period.

    One can't say with 100% scriptural support whether animal sacrifice was in practice or not before or during M.B era. We have many versions of our scriptures in practice. Which one to discard? Its not clear whether a horse was sacrificed in Ashwamedha yagna or it was symbolic. So its very difficult to tell whether animal sacrifice is a part of Hindu or not.

    How are we GOING TO change the mindset of Hindu masses who relish on non vegetarian diet? In many Hindu societies its a matter of pride to make animal sacrifice after a major achievement or before beginning something dear to them. Are we going to castigate them or term them as non Hindus? To be honest there wont be many Hindus left in India if we do that.

    Thanks to internal fights, invasions, slavery mindset that has invaded our DNA and the nobler than noblest pseudo secularism, Hinduism in India is battling for life. Even PM Modi is losing his charm because he is unable manage self indulging elements in the coterie. Vijay Maalya and Lalit Modi are eye sore examples of his inability. Since 1947 we have elected only anti Hindu Governments. (PM Vajpayee didn't had the free hand due coalition politics.) Let's say if we progress at the current rate with non anti Hindu based governments for another 50 years, we surely will WITNESS the rebirth of true Hinduism in India. Many evidences will crop up supporting your claim from our land just like the hidden treasures of Padmanabha Temple in Kerala.

    In the present scenario can the ASI dig the graves of a old Shiva Temple on the banks of Yamuna when we don't even have the back bone to report a theft as a theft and not term it as a gift.....
