With all the news of Pakistan, I was reminded of what my late father in law, and best friend, told me he witnessed in Indian during WWII.
A shopkeeper had big trays of fruits and vegetables out front of his shop. A sacred cow sees this and wanders over for a snack. One of the shopkeeper's employees appears with a large stick, smacks the cow over the head, and drives it off.
In some wonderment, Bill asks the shopkeeper -- I thought Hindus weren't supposed to lay a hand on a sacred cow, but let it do whatever it wanted?
Shopkeeper grins and jerks a thumb at the employee with the stick. "He's moslem. That's why I hired him."
