Coexist (with cows)

Religions should be able coexist you say?  What about when religions have diametrically opposed beliefs?  Like one thinks hamburger is great and the other thinks cows are sacred.

Muslim man dies after attack by cow vigilantes in India

A Muslim man has died after he was attacked by hundreds of vigilantes while transporting cows in India, police said Wednesday, as tensions rose over the slaughter of an animal Hindus consider sacred.

No arrests have yet been made, but police said they had registered a murder case over 55-year-old Pehlu Khan’s death in hospital on Monday, two days after a mob attacked his cattle truck on a highway in Alwar in the western state of Rajasthan.

At least six more people were injured when the truck was attacked by around 200 Hindu vigilantes, who police are still trying to identify.

But police also said they were preparing a case against the survivors of the attack, whom they suspect of trying to smuggle the cattle across state borders.

Cows are considered sacred in Hindu-majority India, where squads of vigilantes roam highways inspecting livestock trucks for any trace of the animal.

If someone really and truly believes something, it will change how they act.  And if someone believes that it’s wrong to kill cows but not wrong to kill people who kill cows, people is gonna get killed.  Modern society has been spoiled by Christianity because Christians tend to wring their hands and pray when someone does something they find abhorrent.  They don’t form mobs and wander around looking for people breaking Christian practices.
