← British Airways takes beef off the menu to avoid offending Hindus

I think we need to be careful not to "blaim" the Hindu's for this, its not as if they asked BA to stop serving beef or expressed offense at other people eating beef. It seems that particularly in the UK everyone seems over concerned about things supposedly causing offense when there is really no offense there. I'm sure Hindus would prefer if there was no beef, but that does not mean that they would want to inconvenience everyone else by demanding or even requesting the beef be removed.
