Does anyone about this thing that why is it done? I've seen a video which shows that a goat (I don't remember exactly, but I think it'd be goat) was killed just outside the Gurudwara and it's fresh blood is taken in that container in which parshad is served, and everyone including the person holding that utensil literally run inside the Gurudwara to give shashtar fresh tilak of that poor animal's blood and I was shocked to see that video. It was horrible. Does anyone has a clue?

doesnt matter what reasons people give to defend this act, this is completely unacceptable as sikhi. Guru ji gave us sword to protect weaks,innocents and fight cruel tyrant people. Killing innocents in any form is not sikhi. its shocking wen people defend it with silly justifications from history

We cannot mukht them ...the one who has given them life he can only take their life...we are no one to mukht them...the thing which guru gobind singh ji did was something else and these nihangs have misunderstood it..it is just a act of showng bravery for them...thats why they all make videos while slaughtering those poor animals and viral them to show their brave act...and there was also a video in which a nihang first shot a goat with a gun and then beheaded it with a sword...such a shame on such a pure religion... P.s i am also a sikh

*I HAVE COME FROM HAZUR SAHIB JI AT NANDED YESTERDAY spending such spell binding two days and enjoying the lunger , which is made with great devoation . i felt the presence of GURUSAHIB JI ALL AROUND .SIKH ARE SO EAGER TO SERVE THE GURUSAHIB WITHOUT ANY HESITATION.BUT AS I WAS TO WIND UP MY BLESSED VISIT TO THIS HEAVNELY SHRINE I WITNESSED THE SACRIFICE OF GOAT RIGHT IN FRONT OF MAIN SHRINE. I WAS SO TAKEN ABACK , UPSET AND CONFUSED AND FELT WHY THIS BARBARIC ACT ???? MY WIFE AND ME WERE VERY UPSET ANS IT HAS HAUNTED US SO MUCH THAT EVERY GOAT WE SEE ANY WHERE THE EVENT IS PLAYS IN FRONT OF OUE EYES AUTOMATICALLY.I WAS TOLD THAT THE SHASTRA OF GURU JI IS ANNONATED WITH TILAK OF BLOOD OF POOR ANIMAL.!! AND IT IS DONE QUITE FREQUENTLY THEIR .MORE SO THE MAIN FESTIVALS IT TAKES PALCE.BUT I AM UPSET AND SILENTLY PRAYED TO GURU SAHIB TO STOP THIS KILLING IN NAME OF RELIGON OF POOR ANIMALS .BUT I FELT CONFUSED AND ANGRY . AGAIN MANY THOUGHT COME TO MIND . MAY BE SOME PARANOMAL POWERS WHICH IS PRESENT IN SHRINE WHICH WANT IT, BRACUSE GURUSAHIB JI PASSED AWAY AT THIS PALCE. AT THE END OF HIS HIGHLY TRAGIC AND PAIN FULL YET SO ENRICHED LIFE , WHICH HAS LEAD SIKH THRU MANY A TURMOILS IN HISTORY. AND THIS PLACE IS QUITE DIFFERNT FEEL TO IT SELF THAN COMPARED TO OHTER GURUDWARAS. BESIDE THIS IS NOT THE ONLY PLACE WHERE SACRIFICE IS PERFORMED WORLD OVER THIS DONE AND MANY HINDU SHRINE TOO PERFORM THIS. THEN GURU SAHIB JI MAY NOT BE THEIR TODAY BUT THE INCARNATION OF GOD AS HE WAS . HE IS SUPREEM IN HIS ACTION , THOUGHTS AND PREACHING WHICH NO LIVING HUMAN BEING BORN OR WILL BORN MATCH HIM AT ALL.SO I FEEL IT MUST BE GURUSAHIB JI IDEA OF KEEPING SIKH EVER READY FOR ANY BATTLE TO BE FOUGHT . WE SHOULD NOT FORGET THE SIKH KILLING IN WAKE OF MRS GANDHI MURDER IS QUITE FRESH AND JUSTICE IS BEING STILL DENIED TO SIKH STILL. MANY OF YOU HAVE EXPRESSED YOU ANGER IN COMMENTS MENTIONED ABOVE FOR THIS SCARFICE , ARE THEY READY TO DEFEND THIS TYPE OF KILLINGS ON EID ??? FOR THIS SO CALLED POOR DEFENCE LESS ANIMAL???, AND MANY OF US ENJOY CHIKEN DISHES ! .......WHAT IS THAT//, THAT IS ALSO BARBARIC.CAN U STOP KILLING OF ANIMALS ALL OVER THE WORLD,??? NO WE CANOT DO SO !!IT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO DO SO ,BESIDE THIS KILLING IS ALSO ABLE TO RRESTORE ECOLOGICAL BALANCE OF NATURE .HUMAN BODY NEED PROTIENS, WHICH IS NEED TO PERFORM GREAT TASK, THESE TAKS CANOT BE PERFORMED BY BEING VEGAN .NO PLANT PROTEIN CAN MATCH ANIMAL PROTEIN TILL NOW. SO RATHER THAN BEING JUGMENTAL TO ANY THING WE SHOULD NOT EXPRESS ANY ANGER TOWARD SUCH SCARIFICE AT ALL AFTER ALL WHAT IS RELIGION IT IS TOTAL FAITH ON IT THOUGHT AND PRACTICE DONE OVER SO MANY CENTURIES . WE CANNOT CHANGE THEM ... (more)

I have the utmost respect for NIHANG SIKHS and most part of their lives. But sacrifices goats / animals or any species should be a big NO NO . Where is the DHAYA ? Theres no compassion at all . Just follow the Guru Granth Sahib fully in a proper manner such things as sacrifices need to be avoided at all cost.

VEGETARINISM is the way forward and always will be. Rab Rakha..

i am so dissapointed by the comment by a guest that sword is not our god? u should think over this :-

Khalsa ,a sikh worships the sword and keeps it with him as it signifies that he/she has tied the death and lives with it (lives in peace with the fact that death is the actual reality-life is but a dream ) death is the reality,sikhs have victory over the fear of death -through their life of pious actions,pure thought and conduct . Sword gives mental strength ,emotional strength ,sikhs are in tune with the truth . Sword is not just the visible form ,but it has such symbolism that one cannot imagine untill waheguru ji blesses .being a servant of that great almighty and i will try to explain . sword is the manifestation of the almighty :- The sword of knowlegde that cuts through ignorance The sword of justice that cuts through the unjust ,the unfair The sword of punishment that cuts through the crime and the evil The sword of words that cuts through darkness and spreads light The sword of compassion ,kindness and love that cuts through hatred,anger ,jealousy The sword of results that follow actions,punishes the evil and rewards the good The sword that purifies and ends all evil The sword of waheguru ji which when works ,gives u a new life ,cuts through all your past mistakes,deeds,pardoning completely and giving a new start . The sword that is the symbol of the truth,the reality,purity, -and the power to change ,forgive,give,in an instant.

I am not a pure Sikh but I really have a great devotion towards Sikhism. But after reading this article, I am shocked, until now I thought a Sikh is a person who is kind hearted to weak and innocent and a tough fighter against the evil, a Sikh is the one to protect the weak, a Sikh only works for good. A sikh works under the shelter of lord. Very sad to say about the practice going on of killing goat. I agree the above statement (When Guru Gobind Singh was in battle and the Singhs were trapped with no exit out of the mountain there was no food left so Singhs started to bake tree bark and eat it but it wouldnt give them energy to fight so guru sahib killed a goat with one strike (Jhatka) and gave the poor animal mukti from the birth and death cycle and the meat was given around as "Mahaprasad" and the singhs came storming back beating the mughals but the lesson was to only eat meat when its a absolute last resort and only kill it in a near death situation or in war and only Guru Sahib could give the animal mukti ). I deeply respect guru ji's work at that time. But now is the time to work on his learnings, what he thought us. The 52 hukums don't say to kill the goat. Come on dear Sikhs stay on his teaching, don't practice what world do. We should not do things that makes anyone cry. Who we are to kill the creature? We should be a Sikh. I pray to waheguruji to make them understand the meaning of a Sikh. Actually they know more than me, who I am? Just a boy from a point like place. But please I don't have words to express my emotions regarding these speechless creatures who got killed. Waheguruji please save them. And let Sikhism be as great as it was in guru sahib ji's time. Special request for the readers, please don't shower anger on me. Because before reading this I got a deep faith in Sikh, I felt hurt, how a Sikh can do so? Ie to kill goat. Please give me a satisfactory answer.

Yes this is a wrong practice but i will clear up some things for you When Guru Gobind Singh was in battle and the Singhs were trapped with no exit out of the mountain there was no food left so Singhs started to bake tree bark and eat it but it wouldnt give them energy to fight so guru sahib killed a goat with one strike (Jhatka) and gave the poor animal mukti from the birth and death cycle and the meat was given around as "Mahaprasad" and the singhs came storming back beating the mughals but the lesson was to only eat meat when its a absolute last resort and only kill it in a near death situation or in war and only Guru Sahib could give the animal mukti these foolish people at Hazur Sahib think that the animal will get mukti just by there hands when they are but dust compared to Guru ji how will that sinning and erring mortal give that goat mukti ? Its simple as that and Khalsa was given a Hukam by Guru Gobind Singh to be Lacto Vegetarian and when you need to go into combat listen to Chandi di var path it will give endless amount of power and energy only in battle. So these people you see here are complete fools and God help them see what the truth is this practise needs to stop espeically at Hazur sahib gurudwara thats pure and is being filthened by the blood of that goat that was innocent there sins will soon enough come back in this world to came them pay Guru Nanak dev ji says That god is in everything so why kill the bird or chicken ? ( in this case its a goat) and Waheguru doesnt want a sacrifice to please him thats why Guru ji stopped the ritual of fasting for God when god doesnt want to see his children in pain ( Animals and Humans) so that is a big lie that this is a sacrifice that is to god and the shasters. Also eating the meat is also a sin when there is other food around and the 5 sin s of the animal will go into you.

People need to wake up. This is the 21st century. We are not living how our Guru's once lived. We are so lucky to be safe and have all the necessities of life. The sword is not our God. The Guru Granth Sahib is not our God. No person living is our Guru. We carry the light of God within us all. Our first Guru has taught us that. God is everywhere, in each living being. This act of "Jhatka" is a barbaric act done by a sect of Sikhs who have no idea what our first guru preached. He tried to lead us away from rituals, away from praying to statues/objects, away from being cruel to ourselves and others. He taught us to love all. Whether Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Jew. He taught us to love all living things, human and non-human. So these people who kill these poor innocent animals are doing it as a ritual, which our first Guru has told us to steer away from. This is not an argument of eating meat or not eating meat. That is a completely different argument and topic. But what this is about is ritual practices. These people believe that they are pleasing God by killing an innocent animal and rubbing it's blood on weaponry. These kind of rituals took place thousands of years ago when humans were not as educated as they are now. They still take place in some parts of Africa, again due to lack of education. These people are not Sikhs. They are cruel and barbaric and uneducated. I hope and pray for these people and may God help them.
