            Beeheading first originated in Hindoo culture in the Mahabarata and Gita Upanishads in year 5000 BC, and was taught to other cultures later.

              Hindoos lost muscle power after they stopped eating meat due to food shortage, so they stopped the practice of beheading because they could not overpower the victim. Then other cultures that ate cow meat picked up the practice of beheading humans.
