Veerji it was purely for food in times of war (or to defend the community from a predator) with the incidental side benefit of sharpening military skills.

Hunting was never done for entertainment. The lie that Sikhs hunted for pleasure was invented by our enemies to portray us as debauched.

Is killing house mice, rats or rodents bad? I can see many gurdwaras have mice traps these days most establishments have taken to that. How about killing snakes and scorpions who are poisonous? How about flies who walk on feces and then come into kitchens to infect foods with bad strains of viruses, is killing flies bad, if you don't and own a restaurant you can get in trouble with health authorities.

Most the hunting were those who terrorised villages like lions who came in killing people. The deer killing seems difficult to talk about because deers don't terrorise but their meat is usually for spoils to eat. The predominant don't eat meat stand comes from nanaksar who equally call religions like islam and christian good and equal revelations of god which promote eating meat, so it goes against nanaksar saying don't eat meat, if they feel the haddiths, quran and bible are revelations of god then god has allowed eating of meat. I've heard some of the pro nanaksar guys say it's okay to eat meat if you are a sant because sants have the power to even eat melted iron. Some view it as giving bad karma but it goes against them preaching texts which are considered perfect revelation to eat meat.

The taksal rehat is usually discussed as the difference between those who do bhagati as a sampayda and those who take on dharam yudh marayada who are then allowed to eat meat in war.

Leaving aside any esoteric interpretations and perspectives, why did the purataan Khalsa hunt?

Hunting was always done by the warrior traditions.

Only the khalsa Sikhs that were active and training, participated in hunting.

Shooting your actual arrows with precision on moving targets which are alive not only trains your aim and nishana but it also builds up that inner courage and strength required to 'KILL' a live opponent. We have to remember that a khalsa Sikh fights for righteousness and against tryranny without any feelings of anger and hate.

We can sit at home and play with the nintendos and playstations for improving our own target practice, but shooting down a deer on the screen is no where near the real life situation no matter how good the visual and sound effects may be.

This was just the first part of hunting itself and then comes the jhatka. An arrow or spear can be used to strike the animal so that it slows down but then it will still be alive unless you embed a loud more of sudden arrows into the heart. However, to take it down and kill it for once the jhatka strike on the neck is used.

Another reason for doing jhatka on the goat and deer is because it involves the same strength and force as would be required to take off a human head !

I hope we can understand that this Hunting was NOT for sport as done by the rich country snobs, but it was clearly to help strengthen character and warrior skills.

Does an animal feel any pain in jhatka as muslims claim? The medical perspective would be good.

No, it does not. In fact halal can be more painful !

I wrote a lengthy article on some other thread about the physiology and scientific aspects with regards to jhatka over halal, and no doubt I clarified that jhatka is NOT more painful.

I really cannot remember what thread it was but perhaps someone may find it !

      VJKK VJKF I am planning on enrolling in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes soon. I have a few questions about how I could enrol while planning on taking Amrit. How would I keep rehit of the kakkars while practising my skills without hurting my opponent in the gym? Back when I was younger I enrolled in Taekwondo and they usually told me to take off my kara so I would not hurt my opponent while sparring. Currently my only solution is keeping my kara and a small kard or kirpan in my Kes, but this also raises another question. If I tied a normal or commando style patka, they are quite stable, but my kakkars would probably rip the cloth. I’m not going to wear a Dumala unless it it my last option because I would prefer something light weight while sparring, and during sports I have seen many Dumale fall off. What style should I wear that is stable enough for getting thrown around but not getting loose?   Thanks.
    • Make no mistake about it, we are at a cross road. Every other last community is shaking off their colonial baggage. You see this coming from everywhere. We need it even more than others because our lot were so deeply entwined in this previously.  And it brought us nothing but death and destruction and losses. 
    • Situation escalating, wonder how long there will be similar in USA, Canada and UK @Kaurr @5aaban https://www.news.com.au/finance/economy/why-proindia-supports-clashed-with-sikhs-at-melbournes-federation-square/news-story/9b842c48d5c3142733727dd370ef71dc Why Pro-India Supports clashed with Sikhs at Melbourne’s Federation Square An ugly clash in the heart of Melbourne between two Indian ethnic groups erupted last weekend with up to 100 people embroiled in the fracas – but what started it? Rebecca Borg   @rebeccaaborg   4 min read February 1, 2023 - 9:22AM   Over the weekend, a Melbourne landmark became the centre of an ugly clash between two Indian ethnic groups in scenes rarely seen in Australia. Footage posted to social media captured the moment about 100 people broke out into a fight, using flags as weapons outside Federation Square on Sunday afternoon. The brawl, which broke out at about 4.30pm, occurred during a referendum event organised by US-based group Sikhs for Justice, who are campaigning to create a separate Sikh-majority state called Khalistan in India’s Punjab region. The state of Punjab was established in 1947 when the partition of India split the former Raj province of Punjab – which was previously under British rule – between India and Pakistan when the two countries gained their independence. But because Khalistan will take away land from parts of Punjab less than a century on from its emergence, pro-India activists are against the movement creating a rivalry between the two groups. An ugly clash in the heart of Melbourne between two Indian ethnic groups erupted last weekend with up to 100 people embroiled in the fracas. Dozens of Sikhs were spotted lining up to vote in the early hours of Sunday. Picture: Twitter/@Lekha250913991 So when a group of pro-India supporters arrived at the Khalistan referendum in Melbourne on Sunday, a usually family-friendly Federation Square became the centre of a wild brawl which left two men injured and innocent bystanders scrambling for safety. As police investigations continue, many questions have been raised by concerned community members about the groups involved and what led to the confronting scenes. Here’s news.com.au’s deep dive into the situation.   Why were these ethnic groups at Federation Square? Prior to the brawl, the day commenced peacefully as dozens of voters taking part in the referendum were seen queuing outside Federation Square from 8.30am. “The purpose of the referendum was to exercise the democratic right given to all humans by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of freedom of speech and expression,” Jaswinder Singh, CEO of Sikh Volunteers Australia told news.com.au. Melbourne’s referendum event was one of several non-binding referendums that have occurred globally in recent years, with others being held in the UK, Italy, Canada and Switzerland. It’s anticipated more will be hosted across Australian cities in some time. “By conducting a non-binding referendum in the whole world among the Sikh population, Sikhs want to convince the United Nations and the Western World that a binding referendum must be conducted in Punjab to liberate it from Indian occupancy,” Mr Singh said. Sikhs were asked to answer this yes or no question as part of the referendum. Picture: Twitter / @HindolSengupta Those taking part in the referendum were asked the yes-or-no question: “Should Indian Governed Punjab be an independent country?”. After submitting their vote, Sikhs around the polling place were seen waving Khalistan flags while sporting the colours yellow and blue. Voting was open until 5pm that evening. At the same time, it’s believed a small pro-India group who practiced Hinduism were protesting near the Botanical Gardens. At about 4.30pm, pro-India members who allegedly came from the Botanical Gardens protest, were spotted at Federation Square waving their national flag. While it’s still unclear what exactly caused the brawl, a violent clash soon broke out with members of both parties using their flags as weapons while others were forced to flee to safety. The larger altercation came just hours after a smaller dispute in the same area which Victoria Police said occurred shortly after midday.            
    • The problem is that apne think they have made it in life if they move to a gora area.  Likewise suls love to flock to where apne are, no apna ever moves to a predominantly sul area in this day and age.
