"They easily cheat, tell lies, forget promises, they are dishonest and tell bad words, steal, fight and turn to violence and commit sex crimes."
Who? Meat-eaters, that's who. From a book on hygiene and health aimed at 11 and 12 year-olds, printed by one of India's leading publishers:
"The strongest argument that meat is not essential food is the fact that the Creator of this Universe did not include meat in the original diet for Adam and Eve. He gave them fruits, nuts and vegetables," reads a chapter entitled Do We Need Flesh Food?...
The chapter, full of factual inaccuracies, refers to Eskimos (Inuit) as "lazy, sluggish and short-lived", because they live on "a diet largely of meat".
It adds: "The Arabs who helped in constructing the Suez Canal lived on wheat and dates and were superior to the beef-fed Englishmen engaged in the same work."
It may not be that funny. In the recent case of the gang-rape of a 16-year-old Indian girl, one response, along with the helpful suggestion that the age of marriage should be lowered to reduce such crimes in future, was that such attacks were triggered by eating ‘Western’ fast-food.
