Why no non-veg during Navratri?

I always wonder why do people stop eating non-vegetarian food during the week-long Navratri festival? They keep eating chicken and other forms of meat all through the year and still pray but during this fasting season of Navratri, they would suddenly go off non-veg diet... WHY?

Just to please God or wash off their sins? I don't understand this logic. Does it really matter what you eat and what you don't during Navratri? Can it really decide whether you are actually religious or not? Share your opinion.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday raked up the Kashmir issue at the UN General Assembly here and blamed India for "another missed opportunity" to address outstanding issues by cancelling the foreign secretary-level talks.
