Why are their people in Sikhi that kill innocent animals in the presence of Guru Granth Sahib ? I have seen some Sikhs that butcher a innocent life and justify it with no back up from Bani. There is a Nihang jatha run Gurudwara near me and they completely denounce Jhatka and so does Damdami Taksal , so why do some idiots cause sin in the Gurudwara ? Mostly in Hazur Sahib

In Sikhism there have now become difference sects who follow their own sets of rules. Jhatka is wrong but it does not stop them from doing so, people are also afraid to get involved as they feel intimidated by these groups. Some of them use excuses like the Kirpans and Shastr have a thirst for blood which is ridiculous. People are looking excuses for eating meat and this is just one of the ways they feel it can be justified to do so.

Hope this helps answer your question.
