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

WRITTEN BY A BIBEKI VEGITERIAN


Jhatka practise is sikhi, sikhs have all become weak minded, guru gobind singh ji instituted jhatka as a rehat that must always take place, instead of slaughtering the animal in a cruel way it is killed fairly quickly with one stroke of the sword, bani is read (japji and Chandi di vaar) and on th elast lines of the bani the head of the animal is decapitataed.

the reason for jhatka is so that singhs could practise shastarvidya, it was important for the khalsa gto learn how to kill and behead there foes and it is for this reason that it was instituted. in the rehat name it says that any sikh that eat meat for its taste is comitting a sin. khalsa eat meat for its sustanace especially when they may fall ill due to vegeterianism, this meat lightly called or dubed as mahaprashaad is given to the poor and those who cant eat it amoungst the comunity.

the skin of the goat then helps make things like table and nagara, sarangi dilruba etc, and its bones used to make weapons, the rehat is that if an animal is to be eaten then all of body be used respectfully, if not its body is cremated.

another reason for jhatka is simple for the khalsa to see what death is it is very simple to be able to see it with your own eyes.

jhatka is the moral way, and has been practised for many centuries. its a science that allows the khalsa to be ever ready and has to take place by order of guru gobind singh ji at hazur sahib and the dals.

how do you think that we get the TABLA and the NAGARA etc

allot of things factor into jhatka it is very important. the belief is that the animals that have jhatka preformed on them are taken out of there life forms so its not seen as a death but a valid victory over death by the grace of the guru.

So the bibek system tell all sikhs that hey should be LACTO-VEGETERIANS and eat out of iron drinking only spring water, jhatka is the only institution that is allowed within the bibeki system if all of its laws are adhered to otherwise slaughtering if a goat for the purpose of taste satisfaction is a cror paap, just as having a bath tub full of warm water as a pointkess bath is a waste of water and recources all of which one will have to pay for in the end.

Remain vegeterian but dont point your nose up at meat or at jhatka its t here for a reason and we must open our minds to understand this practise.

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.

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?

This is the ancient practise of jhatka said to date back to the times of the 10th guru, the purpose of jhatka was when the khalsa couldnt live a vegeterian life style they had to eat meat and it is done in this way but to make it sacred the animal is first offerd to god and for sikhs the swprd represents god.
