As you may know some monks are on fast unto death to force an entire town to be veg.
25% of the town are Muslims
Gujarat govt may declare Palitana ‘veg-only’ zone

This is a violation of freedom of choice. If i am a meat eater can the govt or a community force me to be veg? I hope this is taken to court.
quote from them
"The monks thanked the officials, but expressed hope that the government would declare slaughtering and sale of other non-vegetarian food items an “anti-social activity”.
So i am an anti social if am a non vegetarian? This is 1984+brave new world on steroids.
Next will be ban alcohol. Haven't they learned from history that by banning you make it more appealing.

I have heard some animals mostly reptilian variety is able to grow back its tails. There are other animals which also grow other body parts - so eating those parts is OK?

Think in another way - Animals its a one time pain... Trees - life long regular pain...

I guess most large scale infrastructure projects should be immediately stopped as it requires felling of trees ..

To be brutally honest , its a fact that most people limit such choices because it is culturally and religiously inculcated in their minds and not because of their love for animals or because they have analyzed or researched scientifically. Of course they quickly accept any scientific "research" that endorses their belief.

For things like carrots and radishes, whole plant is plucked out of the soil.

And if we don't eat animals, they'll be eaten by other predators in the food chain.

Thats probably the reason Jain's dont eat roots.

A number of studies have shown that plants feel pain, and vegetables are picked and often eaten while still alive. Animal rights activists are often in the news, but has anyone ever protested for vegetable rights? | Notes and Queries | guardian.co.uk

Actual Jainism says you should not pluck fruits / vegetables out. Let them fall naturally and eat 48mins after it fell down by which time life in it dies naturally i.e. not killed.

I am surprised no one has started pushing for food joints to remain closed till evening during ramzaan and during other festivals like karva chauth.

^^ It does happens in Middle-East countries. When I was in Dubai, my colleagues told me about rule, in which all Hotels will open very early in morning and deliver food parcels. After that till evening hotels should remain close. Besides public should avoid eating/drinking in public places in daytime. Thankfully Dubai being more liberal allowed selling of food parcels and eating it indoors, but I heard Saudi, Qatar, Oman are worse.

About India too, such practice can be followed in Muslim majority areas (or may be followed already?) during Ramdan.

I know that's why I said. In India its not followed anywhere as far as I know. In gulf it might make sense economically as well as most people are fasting.

Here at most they follow slightly different work times to accommodate the timings
