Where's the beef?

Censorship in India too:

"References to the beef-eating past of ancient Hindus have been deleted from Indian school textbooks after a three-year, high-pitched campaign by Hindu hard-liners....

For almost a century, history books for primary and middle schools said that in ancient India beef was considered a delicacy among Hindus -- especially among the highest caste -- and veal was offered to Hindu deities during special rituals.

The drive to cleanse the textbooks of beef references began after the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) formed a federal coalition government in 1998. The BJP stayed in power until 2004."


Lies are preferred to truth. Sounds familiar.

Homosexual Flag OK but not the British Flag

The latest from the Unhinged Kingdom:

"A council plans to fly a flag for a gay festival - despite refusing to do so for the Queen's birthday.

Bournemouth Council claimed they had no one to run up the Union Flag last Saturday.

But they agreed, when approached by homosexuals and lesbians, to put the Gay Pride flag on the town hall on July 8 - a SATURDAY."
