    Meat-eaters "easily cheat, lie, forget promises and commit sex crimes", according to a controversial school textbook available in India.

    New Healthway, a book on hygiene and health aimed at 11 and 12 year-olds, is printed by one of India's leading publishers.

    Academics have urged the government to exercise greater control.

    But the authorities say schools should monitor content as they are responsible for the choice of textbooks.

    "This is poisonous for children," Janaki Rajan of the Faculty of Education at Jamia Millia University in Delhi told the BBC.

    "The government has the power to take action, but they are washing their hands of it," she said.

    It is not known which Indian schools have bought the book for their students, but correspondents say what is worrying is that such a book is available to students.

    "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 details the "benefits" of a vegetarian diet and goes on to list "some of the characteristics" found among non-vegetarians.

    "They easily cheat, tell lies, forget promises, they are dishonest and tell bad words, steal, fight and turn to violence and commit sex crimes," it says.

    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."

    The publishers, S Chand, did not respond to the BBC's requests for a comment

    You have not quoted anywhere the author saying anything against the followers of religion.

    So where have the followers of "Abrahamic religion" dropped in ?

    The book says bad things about the meat eaters and promotes "vegeterainism". That is secular phenomenon the world over. The followers of Abrahmic religions are not the only meat eaters.

    This is classical trolling.... you should only write about Pakistan's nuclear weapons as nuclear weapons have no religion ( though Pakistan has named their nuclear bombs as Islamic bomb.)

    Lamp eats darkness and produces [black] soot!
    What food (quality) [one] eats daily, so will [one] produce.


    This shloka is a simple one, appearing in "vRiddha-chANakya" (वृद्ध-चाणक्य), but it has deeper implications.

    It is not a religious text.

    Similarly, food intake directly affects our body. After all, exercise doesn't make the body, food makes the body. Exercise shapes the body, not make it. While the fact that food impacts our own body directly is well understood, (whether implemented or not), the fact that our food and other intake may impact our next generation directly may not be so clear. There is enough evidence now that they are related, and intake of tAmasika (तामसिक, impure, unhygienic and negative) food, tobacco, alcohol can effect the quality of the reproductive cells

    bbc is a reputed source when they mention the Pakistani books while same is untrue in Indian case whether they report about text books or toilets in India

    that might be a phenomenon in case if they talk about its medical aspects but not mentioning them as liar or commits sex crimes (which in turn means invading and loot,maar and rape in Indian sense)

    it is named as Islamic bomb or parmanov hathyar doesnt matter at All

    Education should have evidence, proof, real world application as its basis. After reading this article i have concluded that some points have rational basis. :dharma:

    BBC quoted by does not say the text is against any religion ... OK.
    Paramaanu means " Nuclear" and not Hindu.

    So there is a difference.

    And who says that there is no evidence and proof of ill effects of meat eating. Effects of white meat and red meat etc?

    What are the evidences and proofs of the benefits of eating meat?

    This is what the Dawn of Pakistan reports :

    Five Reasons to Be a Vegetarian
    In the past fifty years millions of meat-eaters have made the personal decision to stop eating the flesh of other creatures. There are five major motivations for such a decision.

    1) The Dharmic/Scriptural Law reason
    Ahimsa, the law of noninjury, is the Hindu's first duty in fulfillment of his religious obligations to God and God's creation as defined by Vedic scripture.

    2) The Karmic Consequences reason
    All of our actions including our choice of food have karmic consequences. By involving oneself in the cycle of inflicting injury, pain and death, even indirectly by eating other creatures, one must in the future experience in equal measure the suffering caused.

    3) The Spiritual Consciousness reason
    Food is the source of the body's chemistry, and what we ingest affects our consciousness, emotions and experiential patterns. If one wants to live in higher consciousness, in peace and happiness and love for all creatures, then he cannot eat meat, fish, shellfish, fowl or eggs. By ingesting the grosser chemistries of animal foods, one introduces into the body and mind anger, jealousy, fear, anxiety, suspicion and a terrible fear of death, all of which are locked into the flesh of butchered creatures. For these reasons, shakaharis live in higher consciousness and mansaharis abide in lower consciousness.

    4) The Health reason
    Medical studies prove that a vegetarian diet is easier to digest, provides a wider range of nutrients and imposes fewer burdens and impurities on the body. Vegetarians are less susceptible to all the major diseases that afflict contemporary humanity, and thus live longer, healthier, more productive lives. They have fewer physical complaints, less frequent visits to the doctor, fewer dental problems and smaller medical bills. Their immune system is stronger, their bodies are purer, more refined and skin more beautiful.

    5) The Ecological reason
    Planet earth is suffering. In large measure, the escalating loss of species, destruction of ancient rainforests to create pasture lands for livestock, loss of topsoils and the consequent increase of water impurities and air pollution have all been traced to the single fact of meat in the human diet. No single decision that we can make as individuals or as a race can have such a dramatic effect on the improvement of our planetary ecology as the decision to not eat meat. Many seeking to save the planet for future generations have made this decision for this reason and this reason alone.

    The Manu Samhita scriptures tells us that all the people get the reaction for being involved with meat:-

    Naakrtvaa praaninaam himsaam maamsamutpadyate kvachit.
    Na cha praanivadhah svargyastamaanmaamsam vivarjayet. (MS 5.48)
    Anumantaa vishasitaa nihantaa krayavikrayii.

    Samskartaa chopahartaa cha khaadakashchetighaatakaah (MS 5.51)

    Flesh of animals is obtained only after killing him, which is a sin, and the killer of animals never enters the celestial abode.

    All those involved in killing, consenting the killing, helping the killing, carrying, selling, buying, cooking and eating the meat of an animal are equally sinful as the killing of that animal.

    The person who eats meat is also encouraging and in one sense supporting the killing. For example if few dacoits goes to rob a house, and one stands outside the house to look out and other few dacoits steal from the house, if they get caught everyone will be punished by the laws, because the person who was outside was also supporting the crime. Similarly, one who eats meat is also involved and is liable for punishment.

    By posting those picture you are being religious ... and also being personal...

    My assertion is that being a vegeterian or non vegeterian today is a secular issue....

    Vegeterianism can be found in all religion.
    When you are not able to crunch meat, you will fall back to grass provided you get it.

    Again religion !!

    Then what is the diffrence between you and Irfan ?

    Quran is the only religious book which sanction animal sacrifice (during Id).

    Otherwise choice of food is a non religious issue except for Jainism, Hinduism and some other religions which encourage vegeterainism..

    Devadasis were never an India-wide phenomenon and they devolved into prostitution after Muslims and British thoroughly looted the temples.
