"What is true Vegetarianism?"
Vegetarianism means more than merely "not eating meat". Some vegetarians wear products made of leather. India is the largest producer of leather in the world. The assumption is that since the animal was killed for its meat, there is no harm using the skin. Nowadays, there is a lot of awareness about leather. In countries like the U.K where leather is widely used, it is now taboo. There are many substitutes for leather like "synthetic leather" and so on. We can choose not to use leather and instead use substitutes. None of these leather items is essential. Every small effort to curb the use of leather will make a difference. True Vegetarianism is the one who obtains from using any of the products made from animals.
