But Just think of selling Beef among Hindus in India & you are about to start communal riots in India. Reason being, for Hindus in India, Cow is a Holy animal & it is revered as your own mother only. What to talk of eating beef, even hurting the animal is against the Hindu religion. In Hindu religion it is generally believed that all the Hindu Gods reside in the Holy Cow & it is compared to your own mother & is given the same respect as is given to your own mother.
In Hindu mythological books, all the Gods are somehow found relating to the Cow, whether it is Brahma, Vishnu or Mahesh, the trinity considered as the prime Gods among Hindu religion. Lord Krishna the incarnation of Vishnu & is always shown with cows & in fact he was born among the cowherd family only is always shown among the cows. So any disrespect to cows among Hindus is a disrespect to Lord Vishnu / Lord Krishna. Killing a Cow is considered as a great Sin & eating the Cow is also considered as a great Sin. As per Hindu scriptures there are stories that after killing a cow a Rishi / Saint had to go to the hell & after doing lot of penance only, the said Rishi / Saint was able to get rid of the Sin incurred by killing the cow.
So for this reason every Hindu considers Cow as a Holy animal & cannot even think of killing the cow or eating beef. Otherwise also , at the first look only, Cow is seen as the most sober & harmless animal & we should not kill her.
Now you can understand why McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Wimpy's etc. cannot even think of selling Beef in India.
