According to a Yahoo Finance article written by Kim Bhasin, McDonald’s will be opening a pair of its first ever vegetarian restaurants in India. Her article, states that these restaurants will be spread across the country of India in cities, one restaurant in Amritsar and one in the city of Katra. These restaurant chains will not be serving any meat and will be serving similar items that are currently already being sold in some Indian McDonald’s restaurants. On Twitter, many Americans are asking and stirring up controversy that McDonald’s is not providing the U.S with these vegetarian restaurants. However, these twitter followers fail to realize the difference between our countries and the need of vegetarian restaurants in India. In India, cows are very sacred and most of the country is vegetarian, so this opportunity is brilliant for their country.
The U.S does not have the same views or sacred beliefs for cows that India does. Therefore, opening McDonald’s first vegeteraian restaurant to Americans who love beef, chicken and other poultry not supported by many vegetarians, would be a disaster in the United States. Opening up the first vegetarian restaurant of the McDonald’s chain in India, to a country who will greatly appreciate this opening that perfectly reflects their beliefs is a fantastic opportunity in my opinion. I hope that the U.S. can try to be more sacred with animals and change some of these unhealthy eating habits so that we can have an opportunity to one day have vegetarian restaurants that we can one day appreciate.
