Just "replace" each reference to "Sugar cane" with..."goat..cow..chicken..." and you have a graphic description of the Meat "industry"...
Guru nanak ji sahib sought to Teach the SIKHS a Brand New Gyaan/knowledge...BUT the Sikhs couldnt BREAK WITH centuries of Vedas and Purans and Brahmins and Pandits stranglehold....they slipped BACK into the.."kaand mool khaveh" to get spirituality.. necessary for meditation....meaning ONLY Carrots and Radishes can be spiritual, good for meditation..and makes man an Angel....while Meat breaks all that and reduces man to Menial murderer !! The Kaand Mool khaveh practise was clearly and transaprently crushed by Guru nanak ji when He met the Siddhs (Siidh ghost bani) and Completely IGNORED by Guru nanak ji as of NO CONSEQUENCE.
By telling so Guru Dev ji is not justifying the use of meat in life.The real message about its application is hidden in recognising oneself with the HUKAMu of the CREATOR.
In Japji Banee it is clarified a quote as
"ASANKH GAL WAD HATIYA KAMAHi,ASANKH PAAPEE PAP KARi JAAHi"
and later on what should be the food habits of a GURMUKH one is also mentionted in Gurbanee.
We should look into these messages too in order to understand what Guru Nanak ji is actually directing us to follow.
