Do not watch if under 18, enough said.
Can anyone here justify such an act?
Vijaydeep-ji - I hear budhadal reguarly does chatka.
Please enlighten me on this topic.
thank you and wjkk, wjkf.
"justify" in what way? nihangs are warriors, and soldiers must eat adequate protein in order to remain in fighting shape. since it was not practical or even possible to grow dal or other high-protein crops while fighting a war, eating meat is the next best thing.
nihangs who do jhatka today are simply maintaining the customs and traditions of their past, and passing them on to future generations.
i don't understand what the problem is. if you prefer to eat a vegetarian diet (i do), then you should do so. but it's not really up to us to force our personal dietary views on others, is it?
