Simple Living: Cow Protection

                                                                  Q. 1. Why do we drink milk from the cows? Is that not also inflicting cruelty upon them?

                                                                  Q. I was reading your question and answer section on "Cow's milk" (Digest 19B), because I recently got some information that the cow's milk in America comes at the expense of a lot of suffering.  The cows are fed hormones and other things so they could give more milk, which makes them suffer a considerable amount.

                                                                  Q: In CC Adi 17.167 Caitanya Mahaprabhu criticizes Islam as being illogical to Chand Kazi "There are many mistakes and illusions in your scriptures. Their compilers, not knowing the essence of knowledge, gave orders that were against reason and argument.” But in prior verse i.e. 166, he states " Cow-killers are condemned to rot in hellish life for as many thousands of years as there are hairs on the body of the cow" which is even more illogical and unjust punishment by any standard of Christian scriptures, which is an eye for an eye , a tooth for a tooth.
