For centuries cows in India have been a sacred being in the Indian society as they spend their life ploughing the fields so that people can be fed from the land. What has changed now? Why are you so ungratefully killing the very beings who have fed your nation from the dawn of time. Where is your decency and respect for these once sacred beings. Killing these beings who provided for this nation is most morally wrong and this nation will pay for this ultimate betrayal to these hardworking...

For centuries cows in India have been a sacred being in the Indian society as they spend their life ploughing the fields so that people can be fed from the land. What has changed now? Why are you so ungratefully killing the very beings who have fed your nation from the dawn of time. Where is your decency and respect for these once sacred beings. Killing these beings who provided for this nation is most morally wrong and this nation will pay for this ultimate betrayal to these hardworking beings. So please show some mercy and human decency and treat these deserving animals with some kindness and compassion and let them live their lives in peace which will do more good to this nation in the long term.

Virginia, you are disgustingly self-righteous. Your government is printing dollars to flood the whole world with it and to buy every intelligent people from the third world, and you are accusing them to not act intelligently? Your government is holding the price of oil artificially high so that the 3. world is thrown in even deeper poverty. Your government is buying plants and vegetables for their cows and animals which will eventually be slaughtered, and little of this primary food stays...

If there is someone barbaric and ruthless, it's you and your government.

Virginia Greenwood seems to be a FOOL ... India is the place where majority is Vegetarian. And Hinduism with its streams such as Buddhism teaches vegetarianism and love for animals and even for plants...

You missed the point totally Dev. The way in which the cows are killed in India is particularly savage and barbaric! So clearly your religion is not making a difference. Incidentally what's so good about vegetarianism? Cows produce milk for their own young which humans steal. Heaven knows why they cannot get weaned as every other creature on this earth manages this very successfully. I fully understand though that you feel the need to defend brutality in your country!

@ Virginia, have you seen how the cows are slaughtered in America? It's a horrendous nightmare! You think this doesn't happen elsewhere? You are blind, you are allowing yourself to be one of the many sheep abound. The whole agricultural industry is full of depravity and is sickening! Have you had a glimpse of the horrors of the dairy industry in the US or the UK? How can you point fingers at one country saying you hate them, when the same thing (if not worse) is going on in your own...

@ Virginia, have you seen how the cows are slaughtered in America? It's a horrendous nightmare! You think this doesn't happen elsewhere? You are blind, you are allowing yourself to be one of the many sheep abound. The whole agricultural industry is full of depravity and is sickening! Have you had a glimpse of the horrors of the dairy industry in the US or the UK? How can you point fingers at one country saying you hate them, when the same thing (if not worse) is going on in your own backyard? It's so easy to point fingers and neglect to see what's going in our own home. The majority of people in India are vegetarians and revere the cow. You can't say that for many places. Here in the US, I'm a strict vegetarian and I know many, but does that mean we are all to be hated for our treacherous agricultural industry that we don't even support. Many of us are seeking to educate the masses, but the masses have been brainwashed by the agricultural industry for so long that it's a near impossible feat.

Look at South Africa, where they kill cows/bulls not for the food, but as a ritual of blessing. This is a barbaric tradition of South Africa and it happens regularly. Someone dies, they kill a bull, they build a new building, they kill a bull. Someone gets married...guess what? They kill a bull. They kill a bull over anything! Look at how senseless and depraved that is. Do we hate all of South Africa because of it? Well, this one makes me wonder, perhaps we should, because this is a cruel and barbaric tradition of the people. This is a sick culture! In other places, it is the government's hand.

If we want to have more power to make a difference in situations like this, we need to stick together for a common goal. United we conquer, divided we fall. Do you love the animals or do you love your ego? Because with your language it's apparent you'd rather feed your ego than to help the animals. I'm not calling you egotistic either, it's egoistic. The ego is our enemy and gets in the way of true spiritual progress. If you get insulted, again, that is the ego. I hope you read my words and realize the true meaning, which is education, to open the eyes to the broader picture. Saying you hate a whole country for the actions of a few is ludicrous. Especially when those actions are not even for those within that country, but for the sick desires of those in other countries. If you truly care about the cows, then drop the name calling and pointing of fingers at the wrong people and stand up to the powers that be that are behind it. Why is this petition even here? Because the people of India are sickened at the state of affairs and are trying to do something about it. That is a whole lot more effective than namecalling and throwing hateful energy towards people. If you love animals so much, then you need to use LOVE to help the animals, not HATE! God bless! Hari Bol! <3

^^^When I state that South Africa is killing bulls not for food, but as a blessing, I'm not saying they don't slaughter animals for food at all. They very much do. The agricultural industry makes up 10% of the South African workforce. What I was speaking on is the savage practice of killing an animal as a blessing. What are you doing, Virginia, to stop this barbaric practice in your own backyard? These people post a petition in hopes of making change, so why spew vitriolic hate at them, rather than support a righteous cause?

Sorry your mail was too long to read. To sum up how I feel. I hate ALL animal cruelty and the people who are part of the chain and that does not matter to me where it is in the world. Incidentally I am very involved with addressing cruelty in my own country. If I wasn't a compassionate person I would not be a strict vegan. Anyway you do your bit and I'll do mine. If in any way it helps the innocent creatures out there that would be wonderful!

Hay que apostar a la "vida" y NO a la "muerte" para que tengamos un mundo mejor, y en especial cuidar de la cultura sagrada de la India, que nos enseña mucho a occidente

This is a shame for India - mother cow is the preferred animal of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna! How can they fall so deep in maya to commit such a crime! In Kali Yuga cows and all animals are slaughtered worldwide - but India has not to imitate the decayed western life style and betray it's culture - because it is the culture with the highest standard in the world - today's world and the past world! Stop this slaughter, stop this murder - Karma will catch you - and right in the moment when you don't think about it!

Cow slaughter or any creature killing is against the law of lord. One who does it such cruelty must know that one day you will have to also face same punishment. It is the law of lord. Every creature have same right to live. Lord has created the world and like you every one has the right to move, live, like they want. Lord has not given anyone right to kill anyone for no any reasons so it is barbaric, cruelity against humanity also. A human is not one who is in the form of a man, but lord...

Lord has not given anyone right to kill anyone for no any reasons so it is barbaric, cruelity against humanity also. A human is not one who is in the form of a man, but lord has also given some special qualities to human being, like mercy, affection, live and let live etc. But the person who kills it can not be called as Human being. Lord has no mercy at all for such inhuman person. ||Jay Sri Ram||

Every animal deserves love, care and respect - and to live in an environment that is best suited to their specific needs - away from greedy, thoughtless, selfish, cruel humans. God bless ALL animals and their environments! xo xo xo xo xo xo
