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

*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)

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

Ahh....don't you think that's nothing but sheer cruelty?? :/ :/

And can't Khalsa live a vegetarian life now? And how the vegetarian life couldn't be lived earlier? How they used to eat the meat without cooking?

Yes it's cruelty , it's a wrong practice , why don't they kill themselves and put their blood on shashtar , if they are so brave! Why animals are hurted? This is a practice done by cruel people who are showing wrong face of sikhism and they are letting all other Sikhs face down .

I am a sikh myself and when I came across a jhatka video on facebook I was in utter shock and shaken up completely. Honestly, I want to do something to stop this jhatka practice. This is not sikhi. This is just brutal murder of a poor helpless innocent animal that can't protect itself.

Guru Gobind Singh ji blessed us with swords so that it can be raised to defend and protect those who cannot protect themselves. HOW in any crazy way is it right for these moron so called sikhs to kill poor creatures with their sword? ?? !!! The sword that is supposed to be raised to protect?? How is this right even? !!! I don't think this is right and it really needs to be stopped, but why isn't anyone attempting to stop such a cruel immoral practice??

If sword is considered God in sikhi, then why would God want to take the life of a poor helpless animal like this??! God wouldn't! It's these so called sikhs that don't even have any mercy in them that are doing these horrible acts in the name of sikhi.

I am disgusted to find out about this jhatka practice and honestly my heart is broken and my soul and mind are feeling tormented on seeing such things in the sikh faith. I feel horrified and really wish I can do something to bring this jhatka practice to an end.
