Hindus back Beatle Paul McCartney’s call to India for a National Vegetarian Day

January 5, 2011

Sir Paul McCartney is reportedly urging India to declare a National Vegetarian Day and Hindus have thrown their weight behind his call to celebrate meat-free living and compassion toward animals.

Well known Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that vegetarianism, besides reducing greenhouse gas emissions, was good for ethical and health reasons also.
