 McCartney Asks Manmohan for a 'Meat-Free Day' in India

Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has asked Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh if he would make 12 January, the anniversary of the founding of the Indian branch of animal welfare charity PETA, a meat-free day.

He has written to Singh asking him to declare a national day to "celebrate vegetarianism and compassion towards animals," reports the Scotsman.

"Would you please think about declaring one day every year - perhaps on the anniversary of PETA India's founding to celebrate vegetarianism and compassion towards animals?

"Such a declaration would save countless animals, reduce the environmental devastation caused by the meat industry and help participants clear their arteries and their consciences. It would be a celebration of life - all life."

Almost half of the Indian population is estimated to be vegetarian due to religious or financial reasons.
