Prabhakara — a vegetarian?

The claim that Hitler, one of history’s great mass murderers, was a vegetarian shatters one’s faith in humanity, and not so much as the revelation that the founders of Buddhism, Christianity and Islam were not vegetarians.

Ah yes! what about the now lionised Tiger Supremo Prabhakaran, the president and prime minister of Tamil Eelam? Is he a vegetarian? It would amount to blasphemy even to hint otherwise, for in all probability he may be soon canonized in the name of ‘peace’. And this while is still alive!

But alligators eat their young. And so does the domestic cats. What do the jungle cats do?
