Randip Singh Ji, are you aware of the long ritual invloved in the preperation of Mahaprasad, particularly as witnessed at Holla?
Do Sikhs not ardaas over langar and prasad before it is served?
Difference being Halal and Kosher are seen as appeasement or sacrifice to God.........what you have mentioned are thanks to God. Ardaas involves a thanking of the bounty of food God has given us (much like Grace).
Halal and Kosher follow the notion of sacrifice (quarbani) to God. Even Hindu's followed such rituals such as Bali and Anustrani etc......but Sikhism se's no such need.
