A country’s laws would reflect the customs of the people living there. These ideals stem from their religion and customs. As the Hindus treat cows as sacred animals, it is part of their statute that one may not kill cattle. In the same, the Israeli ruling forbids farming of pigs, as a sign of respect to the dominating Jewish population. However like in every case, there is an exception to this rule. One may legally farm pigs as along as these pigs will be used for research purposes in the medical field. Should there be extra pigs that would no longer be needed for research, only then can they be sold for food. This might be considered as one of the weirdest laws, but there are exceptions laid out by the legislative body who have enacted this law.
