Religion - Hinduism[edit]

According to Hindu-Buddhist philosophy, using pesticides in field crops cause many animals to be killed, probably more so than all meat eaters combined. Clearing large areas for crops also causes hardship to many animals who are displaced as a result of this. Being vegetarian does not mean that no animals have been killed in cultivating crops and any ethical arguments to support this perception does not hold up.[1]

Vegetarianism has also led to possible displacement of the Indus Valley civilization to the east (Bihar) and/or may have merged with an older settlement there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
