Is it feasible for India to become vegetarian?I was going through the PETA organization video that voices for the humane treatment of the animals. The reality they claimed about the dairy industry about the treatment of the cattle was gut-wrenching. And beyond that, the slaughterhouse facilities to keep the animals are at highly dismal conditions. Many celebrities would support the cause in their ways but the problem is the people especially vegetarian ones would spread certain another perspective without getting into much detail. PETA's main focus is on dignified treatment but it doesn't preach to be a vegetarian, I feel. Yes, rearing animals for meat not only creates the secretion of greenhouse gases and also depletes the water table but in a country like ours wherein many areas the meat is the basic diet, going vegetarian doesn't serve the propose. In research too, it is found that meat is essential for developing countries like India where it completes nutrition and gives some economic stimulus too. The Gangetic plain is confined to the north only where most of the agriculture happens and with being farming an economically stressful job in many areas, the cattle rearing is something the farmers can depend upon. The US, relatively, is a developed nation and people eat meat as part of the capitalist lifestyle. Their spreading of being a vegetarian monologue should not be taken unfiltered by us. There are many spiritual gurus in their lavish condo spreading vegetarianism with religious angle involved without going over Vedas and ground zero all the same.
Yes, the rights should be upheld for the animals. They should be treated with dignity and unless we have other sources we should not be hasty in propagating these ideas.
