A senior RSS leader has said that consumption of beef  is an “anti-humanity” act and that those who participate in ‘beef parties’ should change their ways as they are bringing shame to the nation, news agency PTI reported. “Those who are doing this (beef parties) are just a few among the population of 121 crore. They do not represent the opinion of the nation. Their act is against humanity and they should change their ways,” RSS leader Indresh Kumar said at a press conference in Jaipur. He added that by indulging in beef parties one was supporting ‘evilness’.

Kumar also said that cow milk is healthier than beef which makes one prone to diseases. “Cow milk is healthier than beef. Milk is medicine while beef makes you prone to diseases. People should understand this and should not eat beef,” Kumar said.

A PhD scholar from IIT Madras was on Tuesday attacked by a group of students belonging to ABVP, within the varsity campus after he took part in a beef festival organised there on Sunday night. The ‘beef fest’ was organised as a protest against the Centre’s decision to ban the trade of cattle for slaughter in animal markets. Nearly 50 students took part in the event.

      What rot is this man speaking? Does he not know that humans are omnivores. Hence how does he say that Beef eating is an ‘anti-humanity’ act, and those consuming it are bringing shame to nation, It is very much an humanity act but choosing whether to be a vegetarian or non- vegetarian is left to ones choice, as our creator, be it Ram or any other God, which is left to ones belief, has created us as such. If the gods had not wanted humans to eat beef then he would have created them as herbivores. But in his good sense God has created us as omnivores, leaving it to our choice as to whether to eat beef or not. It is stupid for this Brahman goon to try and impose his likes and dislikes on others.

        RSS leaders are basically illiterate and know nothing about even about Vedic history. According to Swami Vivekananda: “You will be astonished if I tell you that, according to old ceremonials, he is not a good Hindu who does not eat beef. On certain occasions he must sacrifice a bull and eat it.” [Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, vol. 3, Calcutta: Advaita Ashram, 1997, p. 536.] This is corroborated by other research works sponsored by the Ramakrishna Mission established by Vivekananda. According to C. Kunhan Raja, a prominent authority on the history and culture of the Vedic period: “The Vedic Aryans, including the Brahmanas, ate fish, meat and even beef. A distinguished guest was honoured with beef served at a meal...One of the words that designated cow was aghnya (what shall not be killed). But a guest was a goghna (one for whom a cow is killed). ” [C. Kunhan Raja, The Cultural Heritage of India, vol. 1 (Calcutta:: The Ramakrishna Mission, 1993), p. 217.]

          Hindu are foolish people. They pray to Krishna and do know why Krishna haven't went to other countries,?? This proves Hindu false belief.

              Swami Vivekanand did not advocate eating beef. Do not spread misinformation.
