Cow urine drink versus western sodas

Hinduism reveres the cow, and its dung is used in the countryside as both a disinfectant and as fuel. In 2001, Hindu nationalists promoted cow's urine as a cure for ailments ranging from liver disease to obesity and even cancer.
NEW DELHI, Feb 12. A hardline Hindu organisation (Western food imports), the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), or National Volunteer Corps is planning to launch a new soft drink made from cow's urine, often seen as sacred in parts of India. the bovine beverage is undergoing laboratory tests for the next 2 to 3 months but did not give a specific date for its commercial release. The flavour is not yet known, but the RSS said the liquid produced by Hinduism's revered holy cows is being mixed with products such as aloe vera and gooseberry to fight diseases such as diabetes and cancer. The organisation, which aims to transform India's secular society and establish the supremacy of a Hindu majority, said cow urine offers a cure for around 70 to 80 incurable diseases like diabete and to have medicinal properties for all and it is often drunk in religious festivals. The Hindu group has campaigned against foreign imports such as Pepsi and Coca Cola in the past, which it sees as a corrupting influence and a tool of Western imperialism.
Two teachers were arrested after angry parents complained to police after indian teachers sprinkled cow urine on low-caste students to purify them and drive away evil. They have been released on bail. Student Rajat Washnik said they felt humiliated when a cleansing ceremony as the students were taking an examination, wetting their faces and their answer sheets which were carried out by teachers order saying they'll study well after getting purified.
