True.  My understanding is that most Hindus don't eat meat, but they do consume milk and other dairy products.

Even more than that, the definition of vegetarianism can vary from
person to person.  A vegan friend many years ago used to say that true
'vegans' dont use any animal product, true 'vegetarians' dont eat any
animal product, where some people dont follow that strictness as much.
I imagine that different cultures could have different definitions of
vegetarian too.
