People in different religion have their own mentality. Every one possesses a unique characteristic of its own. We the Nepali are renowned for our bravery. It’s in our Blood. In other hand, we are very much religious. And with religion and culture comes the process of sacrificing animals.
By the way, who loves mo:mo? I do. Who loves buff chilly? I do. Who loves chicken curry? I do. Who likes animal sacrifice in the name of god? No I don’t. Why? Because I think animal sacrifice is so brutal, cruel, and inhuman. To take others life is so devilish.
The above questions were asked to myself. I love to eat meat, but don’t want to kill any innocent. How could that be possible? A big question. I think there are only 3 choices for me.
1. Kill Yourself.
2. Ask somebody to kill for you.
3. Don’t eat at all.
By the way there are many vegetarians who might suggest you to become one of them, a vegetarian. It’s your choice.
Now let’s go to the point. There was a poll called “Should animal sacrifice in the name of religion, such as during Dashain, be banned?” in EU. And found out that 51% of the total voters had contributed for the neutral suggestion i.e. “It’s up to the individuals to decide“. Which sounds quite obvious, I too do agree on it.
But the fact is; it’s a matter of respect whether you are an omnivorous like me or a vegetarian. It sounds so bad when some vegetarians says “Eweeu” or “Chhya” or distorts one’s face when other is eating meat. If you don’t like then it’s fine. Just don’t eat. But to make others feel bad is not a way to act.
Ok, now the Dashin has finished, and the feast and festival of animal sacrifice is over. This might have helped our animal lovers to be a little happier. But being an omnivorous, I still have to fulfill my needs, need of meat.
So let’s enjoy by being who we are. Let’s respect our culture, our tradition, our society. Let’s unite and live in a peaceful environment.
