“Due to high demand for vegetarian meals in India, the restaurant chain will be opening a meat-free establishment.
Fast-food giant McDonald’s will be opening its first fully vegetarian restaurant in India, BBC News reports. Although best known for its beefy burgers, the chain—which is the second-largest food outlet in the world, after Subway—is responding to high demand for meatless meals from Indian customers. India’s large contingency of Hindu and Muslim citizens, who do not consume beef and pork, respectively, is one of the major reasons for the company’s decision to go vegetarian for the first time. The restaurant will open near Amritsar in northern India in mid-2013, with plans in the works for another vegetarian outlet in Kashmir, near a tourist-heavy Hindu pilgrimage site.”
THAT is so cool! 😀 I wish that’d happen in the US!
Just because they offer these vegetarian items dosen’t mean a thing. The money will end up being used to buy and slaughter more animals. I really hope the Hindus that are thinking about going I this establishment will rethink it. It would violate Hindu morals to support a company that slaughters not just cows but all animals, regardless of their money ends up in McDonald’s hands
