We are studying Hinduism and recently learned about reincarnation. My friend said, “If Hindus believe in reincarnation then why don’t they kill animals for food? Doesn’t it help them to achieve a better birth each time until liberation because they are sacrificing themselves to feed you?”

Extending your friend’s logic, if killing animals is better than killing plants, the best way is to better kill humans themselves! It sounds very illogical isn’t it? Tell your dear friend that death is not a guarantee for a better birth in our religion!
