Which areas of India have the most vegetarians / vegetarian culture?

This is an interesting question, I gave you a star. Indian cultures base their diet on their belief system/religon. The 4 main religons/ways of life are Jainism, Buddhism, Hinduism & Sikhism. Sikhism being the largest group 65% and have no specific dietary constrains. They’re spread all over the country and share a similar basis & values. I know of individuals who practice 2 or more of these religons because they are not in conflict of each other. I’m no expert in the topic but here’s some info from random sites & put together with regards to vegetarian culture in india. Jainism – Jainism’s stance on nonviolence goes much beyond vegetarianism. Jains refuse food obtained with unnecessary cruelty. Many are vegan due to the violence of modern dairy farms, and others exclude root vegetables from their diets in order to preserve the lives of the plants from which they eat. Potatoes, garlic and onions in particular are avoided by Jains. Devout Jains do not eat, drink, or travel after sunset.
