This has been bothering me for some time now. It is as the title says, why does our respect for life stop with vegetarianism? When I suggest Sikhs should consider becoming vegan, it is become of the

kudos to poster ... No animal in nature drinks other species' milk. And no animal drinks even their own mother's milk after being weaned. In earlier times milk was needed coz there were not enough

Also as sikhs we fight Zulm ....so why not extend it to poor dairy animals , rather than be a part of it You need niether

A very poor argument in a very poor topic.

Why you want to discuss something that will never end rather than focus on issues in the Panth, I dont know.

Because Sikhi teaches us to respect and value all living creatures? Yet they are still being exploited? If that's not an issue to you, I don't know why you're here.

There are many things that may 'never end'. Racism, sexism, rape, murder, shall we consider them 'poor topics' as well?

Also, what you just quoted wasn't an argument, it was a question. A very poor reply from your behalf, if anything.

Read Gurbani, and then you will know what "living creatures" are.

I'm sure Gurbani teaches us that a cow is a living creature, a four year old could you a cow is a living creature. It is an animal, and it is alive, and this topic is about cows.

Now unless you're going to show me Gurbani that says a cow is not a living creature, I no longer understand your participation here.

besides nothing beats the authentic , goa smell of punjab pind haha

you can make cow dung cakes old school , which you can use latter to burn your chulla for food :))

selling to butchers happns a lot in west

Perhaps in India or in rural areas this would not be such an issue, but unfortunately I speak as someone living in the industrial West where this happens. Perhaps this post speaks more to them than it would to those back in the Punjab pind :)

Thank you.

Cows and cattle being treated in the manner discuessed in this thread is due to INDUSTRIALIZATION of the Milk Industry that has no regard or respect for the animal.
Puratan Sikhs from Guru Sahib's time didnt treat their animals in this way.

Kheer(milk) based pudding is also mentioned being served in Guru Ka Langgar in Raamkali Ki Vaar.

People here should avoid INFUSING PETA agenda into Sikhi.
Milk is allowed in Sikhi. Period.

Of-course there is no harm in working toward getting it from sources that produce it MORE ETHICALLY.

Apologies for asking, but could you please point it out for me please?

Thank you.

Come on! Someone so dedicated to showing the Sikhs howq wrong we are, and you can't do a search on gurbani?

Just wondering how many other Gursikhs are following a vegan lifestyle?

Better to ask if your Guru followed it first.

    • Happens all the time even now! Collecting daswand to help 84 victims, to fight cases they raise a heck of money and boom they disappear and you never hear from them again  
    • Unfortunately outside India we've had plenty of 'daswand' collected to help 84 victims over the years in the West. Few years ago there was 'Sikh' organisation which collected well over 6 figs close to 200k to fight cases for those in jail and bring justice no idea where they went or what happen to the money.  Our kaum is infested with rats and deceivers sadly. 
    • Are they under the Indian government?   
    • Paedophile doctor, 28, who groomed '13-year-old girl' on Kik using the username 'olderc**k' walks free from court after his lawyer blamed his actions on working long hours during the pandemic James Peter Farthing, 28, spoke to the 'teenager' on messaging service Kik He asked to see pictures of her and sent the account a picture of his <banned word filter activated> But the NHS doctor was actually speaking to an undercover police officer He admitted attempting to groom a child and was given a suspended sentence  A doctor who attempted to groom a '13-year-old girl' online has been spared prison after his lawyers blamed his actions on working long hours during the Covid pandemic. James Peter Farthing, 28, spoke to the 'teenager' on messaging service Kik - under the username 'olderc**k' - as well as on Snapchat. The junior doctor, who worked for the NHS in Stockport, asked to see photographs of her body and shared an image of <banned word filter activated>. The account was actually being run by an undercover police officer and Farthing was later arrested for attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child. However, today he walked free from Minshull Street Crown Court after being handed a suspended sentence. Lawyers mitigating for Farthing, said he had been juggling working long hours during the pandemic, his wife's health condition and his training.  They said he had 'emotional struggles', had been watching pornography and smoking cannabis at the time - but that he was working to address his issues. Her Honour Judge Tina Landale sentenced him to six months in prison, suspended for two years, after he admitted attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child. He was handed concurrent sentences for attempting to involve a child aged 13 or over in non-penetrative sexual activity; and attempting to engage with a child aged 13 to 15 to watch and look at images of a sexual nature. The court heard Farthing spoke to the 'girl' on Kik - under the username 'olderc**k', Fiona Clancy, prosecuting said. He also spoke to her on Snapchat, in March. He said he was 23 and from Leeds. The 'girl' was called 'Beth' and was said to have been from Liverpool. The cop used a picture of kittens to portray how young she was, Ms Clancy said. Farthing asked 'Beth' if she was into 'older guys' and if she would send him a picture. 'Beth' told him: 'I'm 13, by the way.' Farthing replied: 'Cool. Are you down for role play or sex?' He asked to see her body and offered to show her his <banned word filter activated>. The 'girl' said she was worried about sending a photograph. Farthing reassured her that if she didn't include her face, it 'should be fine'. 'The fact that the undercover officer was 13 was reiterated, but the sexual conversations continued,' Ms Clancy said, as the conversations moved to Snapchat. Farthing told 'Beth': 'I have spoken to a few girls that like older men.' The officer then sent a picture of a young, clothed girl.  Farthing sent a photograph of his <banned word filter activated>. 'I really want to touch your body and see what you look like naked,' he said. He then sent another picture of his <banned word filter activated>. Ms Clancy said that when officers arrested Farthing, he said he was 'ashamed' and 'tried to stop', but 'gave in to sexual pleasure', the court heard. Simon Gurney, defending, said Farthing, who has no previous convictions, was 'deeply ashamed and remorseful for his behaviour'.   His supervisor - a consultant - and training programme director provided statements to the court. Staff and patients 'all expressed shock' after Farthing was arrested, the court heard, as people thought he had a good 'moral compass'.  Mr Gurney said they 'stand by him' because they acknowledge his remorse. The lawyer said it was the first time in Farthing's career that he didn't enjoy his work - and that his family was in debt as a result of the pandemic.  Mr Gurney said Farthing 'only has himself to blame for jeopardising' his career.  Judge Landale said the 'girl' made it 'clear that she didn't want to talk about sex'.  Farthing was ordered to take part in the Horizon project; to complete 20 rehabilitation activity requirement days; and to undertake 200 hours of unpaid work. He was also made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order - to last a decade.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9995087/NHS-junior-doctor-28-groomed-13-year-old-girl-Kik-spared-prison.html  
    • Plus who said I was some 'admitted expert' about the dumbing down? There's no two ways about it, everything is dumbed down for pendus. Who can't see that? The only people who can't see it, are the dumb themselves.
