Halal food

Guru Granth Sahib forbids eating of halal or any meat killed according to ritual beliefs. Muslims have successfully lobbied to get most of the restuarants even in Sikh populated areas to serve only Halal food. However, it hurts me to see keshdhari Sikhs sitting in Shwarma place and other Pakistani joints happily eating Halal food. When you talk to them, they plead ignorance. These are the same Sikhs who tend to lecture other mona Sikhs about keeping kesh. Why are they not following the tenants and protesting about the creeping Halal everywhere? Our school where 50% of the students are Sikh now serve Halal hot dogs because of only 5% Muslims. None of the Sikhs care about this. Muslims are using Halal certification to build mosques in every street and actively convert people, but use Sikhs are happy eating Biryani!

When I bring this up in Gurdwara they say we should only be vegetarian, when all the committee members eat meat and close to 90% Sikhs are non-veg (also Gurbani does not prohibit meat). I am so confused at this hypocrisy. Anyone agree with me?

Our lot is a totally hopeless case IMHO. Only satguru can guide us now. 

If you don't educate them, its tough. When you do, they don't wanna listen and will you brush you off as young, naive, old, baabey, gay, and what not. 

But being a sikh like us, we can't see our kaum going to gutters either :/ 

its a tough choice man . We're in deep deep mess , so deep now we're even scared to admit it to ourselves. Hence we plead ignorance 

PS: Abrahamic religions followers are very sharda-ful to their religions. They want their faith and its rules in every corner . Their youth is more committed to their culture, namaaz, dress and what not.

Just see how many muslim youth even in london wear thobe with pride, how many apne wear chola / baana ? Thats just one point easily observable.

To argue over which meat is 'best' and most right': halal or non-halal is like arguing over which paedophile was best and most righteous: Rolf Harris or Gary Glitter. All paedophiles are scum and all meat is scum.

Did you read the above where the problem is highlighted that Sikhs are are thinking that if all meat is bad, then they might as well eat halal? Your saying that "all meat is scum" halal or non-halal is exactly what is leading Sikhs to eat halal meat.

There are two modes of thinking on the issue of meat in Sikhism: One is don't eat meat, and the other is if, for whatever reason, you do eat meat, never, ever eat halal. By preaching #1, and never mentioning #2, the likes of you are virtually pushing Sikhs into kebab shops.

I'm not pushing a chicken wing into your mouth, all I'm asking for is a little moderation, and giving a little bit of guidance for Sikhs who, again for whatever reason, currently don't desist from meat.

Oh, and by the way, halal, non-halal, it's not "all the same". Halal is the thin edge of wedge used by radical Muslims to Islamize a society, India then, and European countries now. The injunction to never eat halal is similar to the orders to always wear a turban, or to wave a whisk over Guru Granth Sahib: It is pushback against radical jihadi Islam, and to prevent becoming a dhimmi (non-Muslim second-class citizen).

Also, I thought you were supposed to be limited to your own thread.

The vege eaters need to read suraj prakash granth, There's literally countless mentions of Sikhs eating meat in it. Historically there's nothing wrong with keeping a balanced diet, the main issue is eating it purely for the sensation of it, and same goes to the Vege-squad. 

IMO the main issue as you described is 100% the case right now. Sikhs are turning into nothing more than a pseudo-vegan fanatics more or less. The Sikhs that want to eat meat then end up turning to whatever alternative they find. 

 

P.S - before im heckled off this thread I lead a strict Vegetarian diet but I have no ill will or malice towards people like the Nihang Singhs who eat meat. That's their maryada.

points are:

1. all kulla maas is off limits because it is killed inhumanely and is not allowed as we can only eat by killing by chatka method

2. Halal/Kosher is especially off limits by Guru Sahiban hukham 

In the west , there is only these choices available for most people so they are better off being veggie , where chatka is available then there is a choice for meat eaters of the sikh faith.

I think most folks have too much to eat already and don't need the extra cholesterol etc

I don't care what's 'written above me' and I don't care what's 'written below me'. I look upon all eaters of flesh as scum so I value the supposed righteousness in abstaining from halal and eating non-halal as much as I value a paedophile. Paedophiles are scum and so are those cannibals that eat flesh. How does abstaining from halal but eating non-halal make them any more human ? Now, before anyone thinks 'oh here we go' ;another of them AKJ people', let me tell you that I follow no group....I listen to no man...preacher...parcharak and I follow the guidance of noting except my one eternal living Guru: Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji. To be a Sikh means something....it means living in a highly conscious way the way our Gurus taught us. Now, in 2017, as a conscious individual (which all Sikhs should be) you know that the meat industry is single-handedly the single biggest contributor to the environmental disaster destroying the world......and yet you still wanna eat dead animals and argue the pros and cons of halal ?   You know Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji teaches you that the environment is in many ways Waheguru and you know the evil meat industry is destroying the environment (Waheguru) and yet you still wanna argue the pros of eating non-halal flesh as opposed to halal flesh ????

Right now, you know I could quite easily write a  thesis right here and now on why you should not be eating animal flesh. But i won't. I'll just repeat what I said at the start of the message in reply to the point you directed at me: I don't care what a flesh eater above me writes and I don't care what a flesh eater below me writes. To me, all flesh eaters are about as moral as a paedophile and their opinions on morals and ethics about as valuable. I don't eat meat...I don't eat dairy.....I don't drink milk. Ain't no jatha, group or parcharak made me follow that route. I went down that route by following the lessons on life and the earth given to us by our living Guru.

'Drink the immortal nectar and upon joining the Khalsa fold go hunting. Continually seek to perfect your use of weapons. Perform 'Jhatka' and eat goats. Do not even go near Halal meat.'

By that logic you must consider a helluva lot of your warrior Sikh ancestors to be scum then......

Anyone agree with me?

I agree. I also agree halal is EVERYWHERE in UK. It don't bother me because, it's Muslim's thing. Just like Sikhs get happy seeing a new gurdwara open up Muslims get happy seeing halal place opened (mosque too I guess). BUT we should not enter halal places as it gives us a bad image AND it against rehat to eat Halal (halal is specified in rehat nama)!!!

ALSO! Is this "Hot dog" like, a proper PORK hot dog??:/

Mum had done the rishta with older bro's help before passing 2 Tan dhesi has been involved too, but Preet Kaur Gill is the leader of the cross-party political group helping sikhs 3 grow up , you can't just wander into another country and do what you like neither can you detain officials this isn't India diplomatic immunity means something in international law.. india refused to sign the international accord on human rights which included agreement to not use torture or compelled confessions so there you have proof positive that India cannot be touched by that law as they didn't agree to be bound by it. Nazanin is not a british spy , and she too is suffering Iranian jail away from her husband and child , she has been held on a false case and will have another tried which she will possibly be locked up for 16 years .

    •   " SABR "
      I’ve always wondered what SABR (Patience ) is
      I was never given a proper definition
      so my concept of it was somewhat distorted;
      All I understood was that you wait
      until it’s over.
      But now, if I were to put it into words,
      this is what I’ve gathered so far:
      SÂBR
      is suppressing that angry voice in
      your head, the one that wants to
      yell at people for being inconsiderate
      to your struggle.
      SÂBR
      is swallowing this voice,
      overcoming it and learning to
      channel it towards a heartfelt du'a instead.
      SÂBR
      is forgiving someone when they
      dismiss your feelings.
      SÂBR
      is meeting those who deserted
      you, with a smile on your lips,
      even though your tears are one
      step away from exposing you.
      SÂBR
      is staying silent because you’ve
      already stated your point too
      many times before.
      SÂBR
      is conforming to someone’s demand because of their right over you.
      SÂBR
      is fulfilling the rights of others
      even when they transgress
      against yours.
      SÂBR
      is crying about your heartache in
      front of God and no one else.
      SÂBR
      is believing wholeheartedly that
      God has beautiful things in
      store for you.
      SÂBR
      is crawling forward even when
      you want to stop.
      SÂBR
      is an active state of being,
      it is not a theory to simply be
      discussed and forgotten....   ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------          
    • I agree that Punjabi has its roots in Sanskrit and in fact holds more importance over Farsi, but that doesn't mean Farsi should be cast aside. If we cannot agree on the degree of connection between Punjabi and Farsi then a consideration should be made as to where the bar is set for Sikhs in pursuit of it specifically, if not for the writings of Bhai Nand Lal Ji, then at least for Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Zafarnama. On the topic of academic pursuits, an effort should be made without question to acquire good hand knowledge of Sanskrit. It's worth mentioning that Vedic Sanskrit and Old Persian actually share some similarities.   Punjabi, aside from having loanwords, also shares the same word order as Farsi - Subject, Object, Verb. Although this could well be a coincidence, I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't. What has given you the impression that anyone in this thread has an inferiority complex? For the majority of us, Punjabi is our maa boli and takes precedence over any other language. The fact that some have a piqued interest in a secondary language which unquestionably has had a significant influence on our mother tongue, whether through conquest or not, does not all of sudden warrant the accusation that one has an inferiority complex. Punjabi has many dialects, some which are more Persianized and some which are more Sanskritized, and even that doesn't determine how Punjabi is spoken - a lot of it is down to personal preference and exposure. I have yet to find someone who speaks Pre-Persian Punjabi or has completely removed any Persian influence. Punjabi during the emergence of Sikhi most likely already had quite a degree of Persian influence, possibly not as much as today, but it still had it nonetheless. It has evolved like most languages and we are talking about the form relative to Punjabis and Sikhs throughout early modern history and current day. My DNA test didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, and had it come back with higher percentage of Indigenous Indian, the topic of Punjabis/Sikhs learning Farsi would still be under discussion and actually already has been. Likewise, the fact that many Punjabis are more ethnically Persian doesn't mean we are denying our actual heritage - Bharati. While I despise the politics of modern day India, the fact remains that Punjab culturally, geographically, linguistically, socially, and religiously was, is, and will always be a part of Bharat despite any land borders past, present, or future, and any political designations. A fact that many Sikhs find bitter, and a fact which if in agreement with, will also surely cause the term 'inferiority complex' to be bandied about. Anyway, it's not as if I've been suggesting we all apply for Iranian Citizenship at the earliest possible chance and start stuffing our faces with kabobs now is it. These days in order to qualify as someone who doesn't have an inferiority complex, you must be a Pro-Khalistani Singh Sabhia who follows Reform 'Sikhism', and believe all Sikhs appeared on earth through immaculate conception and came with their own pure culture and divine language which to this day has been entirely uninfluenced by outside factors.  ! پیروزی به هندوستان
