This refers to your editorial ‘Killing in the name of cow’ (July 3). Eating beef is a matter of individual choice. One particular community cannot enforce its belief on others. Billions of people eat pork and remain healthy. None of these scriptural injunctions has a scientific basis and are simply blind faith-based beliefs. The Modi government has banned beef from the country which is not a secular step. Now it is trying to make reading and studying of the ‘Bhagavad Gita’ compulsory in Catholic and Muslim schools.
