Actually, rather than bore you I’ll simply post a wee except and the link. Go there but be warned, it triggers an instant WTF? in rational people.
A Hindu man who ate beef labelled as lamb wants a supermarket giant to pay for his trip so he can go home to cleanse.
Jaswinder Paul, bought a package labelled as lamb roast … then cooked and ate the contents before discovering the meat was beef.
Cows are viewed as sacred in Hinduism, and eating the meat broke his religious vow, he said.
“According to my religion, I have to go back to my country and do sacred things for four to six weeks, and be purified by priests, so I can continue on my religious path. It’s a long process,” he said.
He would also have to fork out for return flights to New Delhi, in India, alongside accommodation and food, he said…
His family had not talked to him since he ate the beef, he said.
As one who would like to cover all bases and is tempted sometimes to subscribe (metaphorically) to all religions … is there any food anywhere that isn’t ‘sacred’ to some bugger or other somewhere at some time?
