Division is part of being human and it is actually a good thing.  We  would 
not want to all be saying the same thing or thinking the same thing.   That 
is the way of the insect, not the human.

Let  me add, for the benefit of those outside India especially the  West.

Traditionally Brahmins not only do not eat meat, but do not eat  eggs and 
teetotalers. Also, meat, eggs, and alcohol are not allowed  in their homes.

I have known Brahmin families who emigrated and settled  in the USA who
follow this practice even today.
