    From the vegnews website:

    “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!

    Whoa! 😀 That’s really cool! I know it’s all because of profit, but think about it: It’s PROFITABLE for MCDONALDS to go veg! Pretty cool! ;D

    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

    That is great but I am sure the reason is concerning profit and not affecting how their other establishments are run.

    I am proud to be weird! My pride and joy is Popsicle, my precious baby, a Blue-tongued Skink. (Sub-species: Irian Jaya) Popsicle and I spend hours together each day, I take him outside and around the house! He goes to the bathroom outside, (potty-trained, whooo!) and explores as he pleases. I let him on my head and in my bed, I do not fear Salmonella and kiss him liberally. He recognizes me, and whenever I drop my hand into his tank he crawls on for an adventure! I also love my kitty and dog, but Popsicle is my most devoted animal companion! :)
