    Generally in Hinduism, it's recommended that you be vegetarian, but it's not forced down your throat - YOU decide.

    Eating beef: usually it's the Vaishnava sect within Hinduism that strictly enforce the no beef rule, but other sects and communities are more relaxed or just don't comment on it.
    Since the vast majority of Hindus belong to the Vaishnava sect, that's why people get the impression that ALL Hindus are prohibited from consuming beef.

    Ahh right interesting. I forget that all religions have sects sometimes.

    So would you find anyone religious (say from the priesthood) that eats beef?

    Unlikely, since the vast, vast majority of priests are likely to be strict vegetarians regardless of sect.
