India's big beefy history

Why cow slaughter is such a big issue??? And how does it matter, if old hindus ate beef? The primary reason is, Cows were so important part/resource of the life of the Aryans at one point of time, that they could not allow them to be eaten anymore. Hence the ban materialised with a obvious religious reasoning. And as usual, the reason was long forgotten, but the tradition endured. Anyway, today i guess it is upto individuals! Even though i eat meat i dont eat beef or pork.. just a personal preference, with a slight religious justification!Purely my reasoning!
