Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

I ate tofu sabji made by my pua, thinking that it is panner just had one bite then realising it was tofu, I'm just unsure whether the today she used had egg in it which is slightly bothering me because I know my pua ji is very careless when it comes to buying stuff and reading the ingredients, do I have to pesh for this I'm unsure whether the particular tofu she used is eggless.

Why don't we eat egg? When I'm in a situation where I need to tell someone I can't eat a cake or biscuits etc because they have egg in them and that I don't eat meat they usually turn around and say egg isn't meat!   So why don't we eat egg? From my experience apart from Hindus no one else understands and get confused about me not  being allowed to eat egg

You generally are allowed. Many Sikhs do eat eggs even if they are vegetarian. Nihangs, who are well known for consuming Jhatka, do not even classify eggs in the same category as meat.

Obviously this is all subjective, and a matter of opinion. I personally believe there is nothing wrong with eating them.

A lot of the justifications for and against are absolutely ridiculous. You'll be extremely hard pressed to find a Sikh who can make a decent argument on dietary rulings without being biased, having an agenda, or misusing Gurbani etc.

Eggs are meat and there is no doubt about it. Do not eat them.

The Nihangs who eat eggs also worship devi and devta.  Their understanding of Dasam Bani is very poor  they are a horrible example to follow.  They have been heavily influenced by ignorance and surrounding Hindu culture and practices.

eggs are forbidden since they reproductive organs. Would you take out your mother's or sister's ovaries and consume the eggs????

A little common sense goes a long way. 

Thank you and goodbye.

Beere you habing tooo much corex!!

Firstly, eggs are basically chicken periods. Yum. Chakho chakho ji.

Secondly, the conditions in which chickens are kept. Free range caged organic whatever is pure marketing bs. Chickens in the egg industry live 1-2years. Chickens in nature live an average lifespan of 5-11years. Not to mention all the crap they're fed including minced chicken. 

Thirdly, male chicks are of no use for egg or meat production, and are killed almost immediately after hatching; either thrown into a grinder (‘macerator’) while still alive or gassed to death- the preferred method in the UK. All with in hours of being born. More than 100 million male chicks are killed by the egg industry every year in the states alone. Male chicks are no good for the meat industry since chickens in the egg industry are bred to produce high quality eggs; the focus is not the quality of the meat.

Fourthly, female chicks have the tips of their beaks sliced off with a hot blade without being sedated. This is done so the chickens don't hurt each other out of sheer frustration of their intense confinement. The beak is more sensitive than our finger tips loaded with pain receptors, nerve endings and blood vessels.

Fifthly, eggs are pure shet. Slight exaggeration but whatever. Extremely high in cholesterol containing over 180mg. Recommended daily intake is 100-300mg. An egg contains about 6g of protein. 2 tablespoons of peanut butter contains 8g. A handful of brocoli/beans/couliflower/seeds/nuts/oats contains more protein. So what's the actual benefit of eating egg?

Sixthly, chickens are smart, social, sensitive and blummin cute animals who deserve a better life. Animals are friends, not food.

No bias. No agenda. No gurbani. Just facts. I'm not for or against the consumption of meat/eggs but consumers should at the very least not be so willfully ignorant. Unfortunately we're all so far removed from our food and it's journey. Anyone with the knowledge and an ounce of compassion wouldn't go near mass produced eggs. If you own your own chickens and keep them in decent conditions, love and care for them, you may just get away with justifying consuming their periods.

In conclusion, don't be a d*ck. Eat a gajjar.

people been doing slavery and human trafficking for centuries too does that mean it's Ok to carry on? Where is the daya in this?Fertilised /unfertilised the hen still gets upset when her eggs go missing , she's only naturally meant to produce as many eggs as it takes to have a successful brood just like other birds (two/three broods max per year) but, because we steal her possible bacchey  she has to use extra body resources to replace those eggs - this is what exhausts/depletes  her ultimately and sentences her to death . Even if you don't take the filth, overcrowding , disease, mutilation and stress into account  this is no way to treat a sentient being.

I think the fact that the calf being stolen from her is a greater shock and sin...

I live in UK and DO NOT use pesticides at all that's why the small birds throng to my garden because they don't get poisoned , I have built homes for bees and insects to hibernate

I haven't got to pavan hari status  when you do , let me know
