Pork is forbidden in muslims countries and cow/beef is forbidden in india...
In Middle East countries, they discovered several thousand years ago that trichinella was a much larger problem with pork than e.g. with mutton. So forbidding pork was a health measure - not that different from the "social distancing" we practice today.

In Arab countries, slaughtering camels for eating was similar to slaughtering cattle for eating in India. This has both a practical and a symbolic value: The oxen were essential for plowing the fields, to make sure that you will be wealthy next year as well. Camels were used for plowing as well, but also for transporting trade goods and many other functions. Slaughtering an ox or a camel would be like slaughtering the hen than laid the golden egg - it was so senseless that it was manifest as a religious commandment.

Once we understand why the moral/religious law was there in the first place, can we ask: But is it still relevant for us, today? Under all conditions? Sometimes it is, like agreeing on which side of the road to drive. Sometimes we are reluctant to admit that it is not, e.g. if birth control aids prevent genetically unhealthy situations. Sometimes it is obvious that it is not, e.g. intimate activities between people possessing the same basic anatomy.

There is no question: An open discussion of which legal/moral regulations are "nature" defined, which are defined to make the society run smoothly, and which are purely "we simply have decided this as a rule to distinguish between those of us who are 'in' and those who are 'out'" ... No such open discussion is at all possible in the Western society today. You are absolutely bound to, restricted by, a large number of Western rules that cannot seriously be challenged. If yo do, you are immediately an outcast that will not be listened to in the discussions.
