Bigger "Animal slaughter fests" out there

by Kelvin Wong, Singapore, The Buddhist Channel, Nov 27, 2009

On the article, "Animal slaughter fest" begins despite protests in Nepal, I don't understand why the Buddhists and animal rights activists are picking on the Hindus only.

Why don't they also pick on the Muslims during Eid ul-Adha, where all over the world even more goats and sheeps were sacrificed in the name of god? I am sure it will be even more effective if they can stop all Muslims from doing so?

Or is it politically incorrect to criticize Islamic religion in our current climate and hence they try to pick on another religion with less political power?
