Hindu group makes cola from cow urine
A Hindu cultural group plans to launch an alternative cola drink made from a fusion of medicinal herbs and cow urine.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu nationalist conservative party, plans to sell ‘Gau Jal’, or ‘Cow Water’, as a rival to soft drink giants Pepsi and Coca Cola.
The drink has been developed by the Cow Protection Department of the RSS. The organisation is based in Hardwar, one of four holy cities on the River Ganges.
Om Prakash, the head of the RSS, told Times Online that the bovine brew is currently being tested and will soon be made available to the public. He added that the drink will not contain any additives and that inclusion of medicinal and ayurvedic herbs ensures it doesn't smell bad.
The cow is sacred to Hindus and the RSS has already promoted its urine as a cure for everything from liver disease to cancer.
