  1. Who would have thought.... Halal chicken firm that supplies top supermarkets boiled birds ALIVE after blunders meant they had not had their throats slit before being plunged into the water
  2. I was asking this to know what is the best alternate from meat to get sources of Protein? Is it multivitamins, or real food, or some protein shakes and whatnot+
  3. Hi, I have an extensive intolerance to numerous plant foods and as a result of trying to be vegetarian, my health has deteriorated. I've been admitted to hospital numerous times, and I keep being advised my health will continue to decline - unless I start consuming meat again. I want to ask if according to Sikhi this is ok? I love Sikhi, but if my health continues to do down, I won't be well enough to continue to practice the rest.
  4. First of all, in 1980 a final ruling was made by the Akal Takht that Sikhs are allowed to eat Jhatka meat. Also, it is written in the Rehat Maryada.
  5. It didn't seem to have to get banned, I'm sure ramghariasingh was just asking a simple question which could help him with life decisions.
  6. Interesting BBC article today about the debate between European and American food authorities. Within the debate though are some very interesting facts that all meat-eaters should consider before they take another bite again. Within that mouthfull of meat there are an insane number of chemicals and pesticides etc. Totally scary.
  7. I know about the use of fetal cells in vaccines but this possibility that we are ingesting in our foods horrifies me . I would like to warn anyone with a delicate nature that there are pictures of people actually knowingly eating babies at the end. Ghor kalyug...
  8. WJJK WJKF Are Amritdhari Sikhs allowed to eat eggs? Personally, I do not eat eggs or anything that has eggs in it, but I find it kind of exhausting to look at the ingredients of a lot of food products just to see if they contain eggs. I heard from someone once that most of the eggs that people eat are not even fertilized so technically you do not kill anything. I'm kinda confused so can someone answer.

  11. An application went in to Bradford Council regarding a new meat processing plant to be opened next to Guru Gobind Singh Ji Gurdwara Bradford. Next Tuesday 13th August there is a consultation in Bradford Town Hall starting at 9.45am to discuss openly this application. A petition was done and handed in to the council about 2-3 months ago. A Benti to Sangat to turn up to the consultation to show that the Sikh Community strongly oppose this application. There is already a stench around the Leeds Road area from 1-2 meat plants on Hammerton Street/Buck Street between Wakefield Rd and Leeds Rd. Last Sunday the terrible smell of carcasses reached Gurdwara Singh Sabha (further away from Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara) and was very disturbing to the Sangat in the Darbaar Sahib during the Divaan. A meat plant directly next door to a Gurdwara Sahib would be horrific. Muslims would protest and never allow a Pig farm, slaughter house or a pub to open next to a Mosque so we need to show that Sikhs also object to a meat processing plant next to a Gurdwara Sahib. The planning application can be viewed here, please leave your comments on the planning website for the council to see. PLEASE ADD COMMENTS TO PLANNING WEBSITE ASAP AS MEETING IS ON TUESDAY
  12. WJKK WJKF I was recently at a path and people were eating store made cookies, pastries etc without even checking the ingredients (many were even amritdhari). And frequently you'll see people serving doughnuts (made with eggs) and pizza (made with rennet) being served for langar at kids programs at the Gurdwara. Now my question is would an amritdhari who unawarely ate pizza with rennet (or pastries with eggs) have to go pesh? Or even just ate something with animal by products by accident. Sorry if I offended anyone, I just asked it because it's been on my mind for years and I see it happen a lot. WJKK WJKF
  13. WJKK WJKF I have a few pets that I feed meat daily to, they require it to live. Will that be a problem? I don't eat meat or eggs myself.
  14. I've been wearing a pagh for about 3 months now, I'm not a gursikh by any means. I still trim my beard but I have given up alcohol and going to clubs and bars. I feel the next step for me is to stop eating meat. I'm quite into fitness and building muscle so I consume quite a bit of protein. I eat chicken pretty much every day. I know I can get the protein from daal, sholay, kidney beans etc, but the problem is when I'm outside at work, I don't eat much meat at home. There really aren't that many options for vegeterians that want a substantial amount of protein in their food. Can anyone give me advice on how they beat eating meat and still ate nutritious food. Thanks.
  15. WJKK WJKF I want to stop eating eggs because I want to be able to take Amrit one day. The problem I'm facing is that my parents aren't in favour of me stopping. I'm 15 so they still have control over what I eat. Is there anyway I can convince them? Any quotes I could show them? Any health issues that I could show them? Anything would greatly be appreciated.
  16. now I know in sikhi people are condommed not to eating meat. right? but if they do... they cant it beef? or is that false.
  17. Ki kariye Hun ena da. This video is going viral on Facebook and who loves meat eating are sharing it on their walls and misguiding others who do not eat meat. And people are getting confused and thinking that eating meat is fine for Sikhs.
  18. When you watch this video, do you think this is what Sikhs should be known for? These people are ruining the Sikh image and I know this has been disputed many times and I don't know if the Sikh community will EVER be on the same page. But in my opinion this is just stupid. These people are just looking for an excuse to eat meat...! Even if I wasn't a Sikh, I would never EVER want to see this happening. Taking the life of an innocent animal who has done nothing to harm you just so you can eat some meat? I know this is not accepted in Sikhism. Sikhism is a different religion, and the video below shows the exact opposite. I'm so happy I didn't see this when I went to Sri Hazur Sahib. Nihaangs are not Singhs, this practice is horrible and not part of our values! By the way, this video is the first result on YouTube when you search " sri hazur sahib" . Big Impact. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- A fellow Gursikh responded to this video, worth watching : Response 1: RESPONSE 2:
  19. I am 15 years old, and I and maybe one or two people are the only Sikhs* that are vegetarian in my high school. I don't know if this is written somewhere in Guru Granth Sahib ji, but I as a human being think, whether Sikh or not, eating other animals is wrong. When you have free fruits and vegetables, why would you want to take the life of someone for food? All my Sikh friends try to avoid the topic...they say not eating meat was just a rumour and not true. But why do we not serve meat in Gurdwaras? Modern day Sikhs are changing, and a kid like me in high school is witnessing it. The things adults don't see. They talk about shaving, eat chicken with no shame. So what is the truth? *These are not true Sikhs. They cannot read punjabi, they only have turbans, nothing else. How do we change this corruptness? What is the true answer about meat? Bhul Chuk Maaf. Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji Ki Fateh!
  20. Just found this passage in a version of Bhangu's Prachin Panth Prakash, obtained from the net. Can anyone please clarify on this? Writing about the happening at Machhiwara (‘… accepted after purifying with the all steel dagger) "Quatrain: When the True Guru went further, he reached near Machhiwara. After settling the True Guru, the Pathan went and brought along Gulaba the Khatri.1 Couplet: Listen to the story of Machhiwara of how the Guru stayed at the house of a Khattri and of how the Sayyad Pathans served him by carrying him on their heads.2 Quatrain: He served some food. The Guru ate while remembering (God). At sunset he brought him inside. The mansion became his abode.3 One or two Singhs walked to the place. The Guru ordered them to conceal themselves. One day the Guru ordered a goat. He had it slaughtered by the Singhs. As the True Guru ate meat, bones were thrown into the house of the Turk. On seeing the bones the Turk remonstrated and abused the Khattri, ‘you throw bones into my house!’5 Couplet: Then the Khattri approached the True Guru saying, ‘ I am an extremely weak person. I will be killed should the Turk comes to know.’6 Quatrain: The True Guru threw money. The Qazi took the bribe and kept quiet. Like this the Guru stayed here for ten days and then desired to march on.7" Did the Guru really eat meat? Whose this Khatri Bhangu speaks off and I have never heard of maharaj bribing a Qazi.
  21. could somebody please explain to my whether or not sikhs are allowed to eat meat or not. i watched a you-tube video where the sikh man (was an american gora) said you should eat whatever you feel like eating. i did other research and it says that sikhs are not allowed to eat halal meat / kosher meat. they can eat jhatka meat. my family says sikhs cannot eat meat as animals are Gods creation and it is disrespectful to eat it. what is the right option?
  22. I am just starting out on my vegan journey and loving it so far, anyone else in same / similar boat as me ? I also like to workout (mainly weights) and would want to keep my total calorie / protien input optimal.
  23. Hey can someone help me understand what is the reason that Sikhs don't eat meat? At first I thought it was because we think its wrong to take life but this cant be true because we have used animal products throughout out history (e.g. The skin on the drum in the gurudwara, the goat skin water pouch that Bhai Kanhaiya used to give water to fallen Mughals on the battle field) Im sure there are many more examples. So can someone please explain what is the reason that we don't eat meat? Please can you support your ideas with quotes from gurbani if possible otherwise they are just opinions. Thankyou :biggrin2:
