    It would be interesting to know who wrote this Jhatka Nikedh Granth? Unfortunately most of the vegeterian amrit dharis I meet or listen to parchar from don't seem to be very good at keeping a Khalsa rehit. Most of them aren't good with wearing bana, and actually not bani either - don't read full Chaupai and some might also have problems with Raagmala which is a bani in Guru Granth Sahib. Luckily a few are good with wearing dumalla but most just wear cultural indian/punjabi turbans. Also most are hopeless with shastar and probably don't know how to wear kammarkasa either, just gatray with the colonial-mandated undersized kripaan. So basically most of them are very much sehajdhari just with a turban and gatra. I wouldn't trust most of them with sikhi knowledge. Nevermind the corrupt ones that run the commitees. Being vegeterian doesn't make up for the lack of rehit present in most amrit-dharis. And the jhatka Singhs are very good at keeping rehit, I wonder why (is it the sukha, lol?) ?
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
