That is because you have much to learn.
Urine Therapy is not a Indian or a Hindu phenomenon alone.
It has even been advised by the Prophet in Islam in the Hadith.
In Hinduism a religious Sanskrit text called the Damar Tantra contains 107 stanzas on the benefits of "pure water, or one's own urine". In this text, urine therapy is referred to as Shivambu Kalpa. This text suggests, among other uses and prescriptions, massaging one's skin with fresh, concentrated urine. In the Ayurvedic tradition, which is fundamentally taken from the Hindu scriptures called the Vedas, urine therapy is called amaroli which when practised requires some dietry requirements such as mixing it with water to "cure cancers" and other "diseases" along with "raw food and certain fruits like banana, papaya and citrus fruits" which are claimed to be "very good in the practice of amaroli". One of the main aims of this system is to "prevent illness, heal the sick and preserve life".
In Islam drinking urine is forbidden and is considered "khamr" and is punishable as in the same as if "exposed to the penalty of apostasy" due to its toxicity, with the willing drinker not being considered Muslim anymore. Sunni Islamic commentators find urine to be something that is "filth in an extreme degree". However scholars such as AbÅ« á¸¤anÄ«fa have said that "it's disliked" ("makruh" or "almost" haram). In two of the Hadith's written by Sahih Bukhari it states several times that the Prophet Muhammad told his followers to drink camel urine and milk for the purposes of "recovery" to use "medicinally". However the authenticity of these verses are disputed by many scholars, with the International Institute of Islamic Thought, a representative body of scholars, commenting that the prophet recommended drinking camel milk only with the consumers drinking camel milk along with urine which was later placed in the hadiths as some of Muhammad's sayings (which were compiled years after his death) as "throughout the history of the Companions there is no reference to the uses of camel urine for theraputic purposes". Abu Yusuf has said that "urine from camels can be consumed for medicinal purposes". However drinking camel urine is generally overall considered forbidden to consume in Islam as it is an intoxicant.
 Other cultures
In China, the urine of young boys has been regarded as a curative. In southern China, babies' faces are washed with the urine of other young boys as a skin protectant.
The French customarily soaked stockings in urine and wrapped them around their necks in order to cure strep throat. Aristocratic French women in the 17th century reportedly bathed in urine to beautify their skin.
In Sierra Madre, Mexico, farmers prepare poultices for broken bones by having a child urinate into a bowl of powdered charred corn. The mixture is made into a paste and applied to the skin.
As in ancient Rome, urine was used for teeth-whitening during the Renaissance, though they did not necessarily consume their own urine.
So the connoisseurs are all over!
Now this will unfortunately become a nation wide phenomenon (in the case that is true) if the current pseudo-secularist and the witch hunting of one community for vote-bank considerations continue.
Never mind the little minds.
Go-mutra (cow pee in their parlance) is hardly connoseiur-ed by 0.00001 of the population and that actually has so many medicinal properties.
