Author:

Availability: Out Of Stock

The cow has long been considered a symbol of the religion of Hinduism, and therefore of holiness, in India. Killing this animal, let alone eating it, would be sacrilegious for Hindus. The general perception among Hindus is that the slaughtering of cows for food began with the Muslim conquests in India. But according to the author’s research, killing cows for meat was a prevalent practice in ancient India. In The Myth Of The Holy Cow, the author reveals that in ancient times, Hindus and Buddhists ate beef. According to him, the cow earned its status as the holy animal of Hinduism only in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The book states that hindus regularly used cows both as part of dietary traditions and as offerings to God. This edition of the book was published in 2009 by Navayana. With its sensitive content and the religious sentiment involved, it garnered much controversy both before and after its publication.
