One of the world’s most outspoken and influential vegetarians, Paul McCartney, has asked the Indian Prime Minister to declare a national vegetarian day.

India, a country where an estimated 42% of the 1.2 billion people who live there are vegetarian, seems like a perfect place to declare a day for compassion and respect for animals.

PETA noted that McCartney’s letter said that a day celebrating the vegetarian diet could help animals, the environment, and people’s health.

McCartney wrote: “It would be a celebration of life.”

A day devoted to being veg seems like a great idea to me. Activists in the US have tried to create their own with movements like the annual Meat Out; but imagine a day set aside by the government. That would certainly get people’s attention. (Editor’s note: And send Fox News into hysterics.)
