How does eating camel meat break wudhu?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

No, the wudhu does not break hence one does not need to make wudhu. As far as the Hadith is concerned which says that the Prophet (peace be upon him) did wudhu after eating camel meat, it implied the literal meaning of wudhu i.e. washing the mouth; since camel meat is very fatty and thick.
