Let’s know what Swami Vivekananda said about beef eating among Hindus in ancient India.

Gujarat government board claims the Quran says beef bad for health. The verse on the billboard has been translated as “Show respect to cows as it is the leader of all bovines. Its milk, ghee and butter have therapeutic properties and its meat is the cause of several diseases’’.

Obsessed with Muslims & Islam Hindutva network is working overtime to spread lies and this time it has invented a new verse in the Quran.

It is a fact that the Quran does not discuss beef as the cow was not to be found in Arabia.

This is also a fact that many Indian rulers with Muslim names like Babar, Akbar and Bahadurshah Zafar banned the slaughter of cows. But Ancient India was different where beef was consumed for religious reasons by Hindus.

The Hindutva propaganda that beef-eating started in India started with the arrival of Muslims in India is a sheer lie.

Let’s know what Swami Vivekananda said about beef eating among Hindus in ancient India. Vivekananda, regarded as a philosopher of Hindutva by the RSS, said:

“You will be astonished if I tell you that, according to old ceremonials, he is not a good Hindu who does not eat beef. On certain occasions he must sacrifice a bull and eat it.”

[Vivekananda speaking at the Shakespeare Club, Pasadena, California, USA (2 February 1900) on the theme of ‘Buddhistic India’, cited in Swami Vivekananda, The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, vol 3, (Calcutta: Advaita Ashram, 1997), p. 536].

So long before the arrival of Muslims in India, all good Hindus consumed beef for religious reasons. Gauseva and Gauchar Vikas Board of the Gujarat must-read Vivekananda to know the facts of history.
