Why did Shirdi Sai Baba cook non-vegetarian food?

Baby Sripaada Aaraadhya asked: Why did Shirdi Sai Baba cook non-vegetarian food for the sake of non-vegetarian Muslims?

Swami replied:- God Datta came as Shirdi Sai Baba to unite Hinduism and Islam so that there will be no religious quarrels. Muslims are generally highly emotional whereas Hindus are with balanced nature. Baba wanted to attract the highly emotional Muslims by His dress, satakaa and slogan ‘Allah is the Master’ that is always uttered by Him. He is purely vegetarian. He cooked non-vegetarian food to please Muslims. When they are attracted by His dress, slogan, satakaa and catering the non-vegetarian food, the pleased Muslims were prepared to hear His preachings about the one God and unity of religions. God is very intelligent and knows all the commercial principles of pleasing the customer as in business!
