Here, Arjuna is in a similar yet not identical situation as in the battlefield of Kurukshetra -- one in which he does not want to kill. But Krishna wants Arjuna to kill Asvatthama, the killer of the five sleeping sons of Draupadi. Now here the outcome is different, because the circumstances are different. This is not a cookie-cutter religion, wherein there is only one way to do things and we all do them the same way. That is not the lesson here. The lesson is quite the opposite. In the course of religion and duties, there are many subtle things to consider. If you just take one thing and do it, or take another thing and do not do it, then it is not mature and it is not complete.
