SIKHS IN GULF COUNTRIES ASK AKAL TAKHT TO CLARIFY STAND ON HALAL MEAT Dubai, Sept 27, 2013- Gurinder Kaur Kandhari, vice-chairperson of Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara in Dubai has asked the Akal Takht, SGPC and DSGMC to clarify their stand on Sikhs having halal meat in the Gulf countries. Kandhari, accompanied by SP Singh, general manager of the gurdwara, said the Sikhs living in the Gulf countries had to consume halal meat as the jhatka meat was not permitted there. "According to the Sikh religion, we are allowed to have only jhatka meat. So we seek your guidance on how to go about it. Besides, if we continue to have halal meat, do we cease to be Sikhs," asked Kandhari and Singh. Manpreet Randhawa *HT Media Ltd.
