The center recently passed a nationwide order banning the sale of cow for slaughter and meat. Rationale is both economic and religious for a majority of the people. Some of our media, people and protesters feel this is an attempt to impose restrictions on food which is absolutely not true. So Yes, in India one can be vegetarian, be vegan, eat chicken, seafood, lamp, beef from buffalo and even pork (as do people in some regions), etc. etc.. So all the fuss one is hearing about in the media and social media is simply misplaced.
