God is our creator and he made human beings, plants ,animals and possibly every living thing.we all are the children of GOD. Is is fair to kill innocent and weaker souls for the sake of taste? Can consuming meat bring us bad karma?

If this is considered a crime for your religion may be. It is not considered a sin for my religion. According to many western religions animals were created to feed humans.

@LadyDuck yes they do.we have a community of people in India who are strict vegetarians and have never tasted onion and garlic ever in life considering them as a part of the non vegetarian food group.

Could be? Fruits and vegetables considered as natural food.

Meat can be an option. Fruits and veggie can't. What are we to eat then?

@aishanee That's why fruits and vegetables are easy to grow so that there's always to eat for vegetarians

It depends on what religion you are in. In my religion, I think it is not forbidden.

Thanks you for your response on the topic.I believe it's more of a personal choice than a religious binding,isn't it?

@aishanee I am sure it is possible by choice. But then, some people are too religious.

One can also argue that since god made all living beings including plants , how can we eat vegetarian foods? and what about milk ? ..It all depends on conditioning of the mind. There is no bad karma in consuming meat ..I do'nt eat meat although I eat fish and sea food.My family loves non vegetarian food .so,basically,it is all a personal choice ! I know of many men belonging to Brahmin families who eat meat in restaurants on the sly and if the ladies were to do that it would be considered a sin.

Time favours those who get their deeds right.what goes around comes around.karma wont spare me if i'm a sinner and a vegetarian too.

maybe plant life has a soul too - whatever health reasons there may be for vegetarianism, religious senibilities trike me as irrelevent - I do eat meat by the way

There are trillions or billions of people in this world who are meat eaters. However, we eat fish, chicken , the usual meat that are not extinct or prohibited. I don't think that it is a bad karma. As long as we do good deeds, don't harm others, eat meats maybe once or twice a week, karma will understand us.

That's a very tricky question my friend. I think the answer will lie on what you believe in.
