No, it forbids eating Halal, Drinking and smoking... it's forbidden to smoke marijuana but allowed to drink marijuana (Degh) meat is only meant to be ate as a last resort

Even sikhnet says we can eat meat, but yet so many refuse to explain why they believe we can’t?

There is no need for humans to eat meat. We live just fine on veges, daal, fruits, etc. Meat eating animals have short intestines (e.g, the tiger has an intestine one meter long) and humans have seven meter long intestines which are designed to digest plant materials. Since, under normal circumstances, there is no need to take another life in order to survive, why do so? Meat is an acquired taste. It is the taste of another's blood. In the Kali Yug, most of mankind hungers after blood, but it is only an attachment, like any other, which can be dropped when the time is right.

Sikh arn't allowed to eat non veg. Guru Nanak has never said and allow. He writes to tell Hindus that by prohibiting meat alone can't send u to pal Brahm bcz nam prapti and other karma is important . At the time veg-nonveg is not issue among hindus. Bcz everybody is hindu. But God Kabir has clearly targetting idiot Muslims who eat meat. He ask mulla lab Aya Farman Allah ka .. i have read his all banis and my friend in above comments has said Kabir is just a Kavi . Now if he is just a Kavi then why his Bani is in Shree Guru Granth Sahib . Why Guru Nanak followed him. And Considered him as a 'Dhanak Kartar' . Even Muslims and Jews are not allowed to eat non veg . As per Kabir if prophet Mohammad has allowed then give the written proof. Bcz Hindus and Sikhs has written proof in Thier Granths. And my Sikh friends if Kabir was wrong then why his Shloks of prohibiting non veg is written in Guru Granth Sahib. Guru Nanak , Guru Arjun , Guru Gobind should have remove it if they were wrong. No Guru has eat non veg and told u to eat non veg. The only thing they has said is by being a vegetarian alone will not send u heaven or paal Brahm.. So if u r supporter of eating meat , then tell me only 1 shlok of Guru Granth Sahib where any Guru has written eat Sikhs , pls eat non veg , u are allowed to eat, there is no problem in eating non veg.

I am agreed with the above statement as bhag Kabir ji said

"Jab sab Mai ek jhudaye hai too kyu murgi mare"

Meaning of this is, if you are saying there is GOD in all living beings then why you are killing animals,is GOD doesn't exist in them.

And what means this is carrying that SIKH can eat JHATKA and Muslim can eat HALAL, KABIR ji had made a statement on this point that it doesn't matter that what process is followed to kill an animal weather its JHATKA OR HALAL procedure, but the point is after following both the procedure animal can't live, they got killed whatever procedure you follow.

So I am very much sure about this that in Sikhism meat is not allowed. But why it is not allowed I want to know that.

Because as Kabir ji said "JAB SAB MAI EK KHUDAYE HAI TOO KYU MURGI MARE"

which means he is saying to those who said there ia GOD in all of us so why you are killing animal.

And here my doubt is that plants and trees also are living animal and in all living beings there is one and same GOD. So indirectly we are killing living beings to fill up our basic needs.

And indirectly we can say we are eating meat.

So I want the answer of this.

No, it's not at all O.K to eat meat as it goes against the Sikh Rehat Maryada. A true Sikh is expected to be pure vegetarian not even eggetarian.

Well I also want to ask the same question. I've seen on a lot of websites that jhatka meat is allowed in Sikhism (I'm talking about non amritdhari Sikhs with proper kesh). My answer is bit different. In fact I would like to ask a question. Other religions in overseas countries, especially English speaking countries, White people dint say that eating meat is wrong. Infact they celebrate their festivals by serving meat. Will they go to hell?????

First of all, There is nothing like painless death by JHATKHA. If someone believe that the one who dies by JHATKHA goes to heaven then just kill yourself by JHATKHA and go to heaven please and let there be peace not suffering. You call this religion as saviour of weak and now justifying the killing of those weaker animals who can't even defend themself. So whats the point of being a saviour at first place and becoming a killer at last. You people are nothing more than meriless killers who kills the weakened for nothing more than mere tingling their taste buds. Have some shame instead of proud for killing all those innocent animals, They ain't any harm to you but you are the greatest harm to their lives and stop braging about going to heaven for killing those animals who don't stand a chance against merciless intentions of yours to kill. You people are not defenders of humanity you are just killers of humanity. Je kise jeonde jee da bhla ni na kar sakde ta kise nu maro vi na eh kehke ohnu asi swargan ch bhejta.
