Jesus and Krishna

On a recent visit to a friend's place Sonee, my toddler, made a new friend - Jesus.Their beautiful house had beautiful sketches and paintings of Christ,and the constantly - curious Sonee wanted to know all about the new 'person' instantly.I didn't know a better way to get her introduced than to tell her that He is also God-friend like Krishna in our own house.
Sonee kept pondering on the info for a while and then responded ,"mama , where are christ's cows?" (she had stretched the Krishna connection).
I was kept wondering for a while ,looking for a suitably satisfying answer for her query.Then I stumbled on the fact that both Krishna and Jesus were close to cattle/sheep,both were born in adverse circumstances,both were people's person(s).

The next instant I strangely think of men burning down a Christain man and his two young sons because they prayed to Jesus and not Krishna.
Why is there so much of strife and hatred ?
I'm sure both Jesus and Krishna are troubled due to what we have made out of religions,and how we conveniently hide our narrow-minded perceptions in their names.
