Default Hindus Protest McDonald's

Bharat, September 5, 2012 (theprovince.com): HPI Note:
Our readers have expressed interest in the proposed
McDonalds at two sacred spots in India, so we are running
a few more news items on the subject.

McDonald's, home of the Big Mac, is facing Hindu protests
over plans to open restaurants in two of India's most
revered religious centers and pilgrimage sites, despite
promising that it will offer only vegetarian menus.

Katra in Jammu and Kashmir is home to Shri Mata Vaishno
Devi, one of Hinduism's four holiest shrines, and an
unlikely site for a restaurant chain that slaughters
millions of cows every year. McDonald's also is planning
a second vegetarian restaurant in Amritsar, home of the
Golden Temple, the centre of the Sikh religion in Punjab.
Although Sikhs are not forbidden from eating meat, their
temples serve only free vegetarian food in their kitchens
to pilgrims and visitors.

The openings mark the chain's latest attempt to win over
people who have a passionate love of their own distinct
spicy cuisine. Beef has not been on the menu since
McDonald's opened its first Indian store in Delhi in
1996, although it has kept its carnivore focus, serving
chicken nuggets, sausage muffins and fish burgers, its
local stores have become largely unrecognizable from
their Western outlets.

LOL!!! The same sort of people who release mink to die worse deaths and
inflict suffering and death on both domestic and wild animals, and who destroy
medical research creating more suffering for humans and other animals, and who
can't appreciate lives of positive value for any livestock animals, and who
oppose human hunting causing more suffering for wildlife, are the same people
who protest McDonald's doing what they've been trying to get them to do for
years. LOL.....HILARIOUS, in a most pathetic way. The "thinking" behind it all
is similar though so at least such people are consistent, not that that's a good
thing in this case.
