toward god.if sikhs want to propagate sikhi in different areas of world then we have to accept different diets.any religion that says that its followers
cannot eat non veg diet is confined to fertile areas of
world and not a universal religion.
randip singh ji if you can ad above point then i will be thankful to you.
We toyed with idea of adding some biological, humane, and practical arguments (like yours), to the article, but what we wanted to do was focus on what Sikhism said and what Sikh-History said. We wanted analyse practices of Sikhs.
Let me give you an example.....Christianity like Sikhism does not specifiy any specific diet Vege or Non-Vege........however there are many Vegetarian Christians........they are Vegetarian because of what their conscience tells them. They do not use Christianity to back it up. In Sikhism, there seems to be a strange need to back up a particular viewpoint through Sikhism. We have sought to dispell this myth (and I think sucessfully), that meat eating or vegetarianism has nothing to do with Sikhism.
What do you think?
