    Is this consistent with the traditional Nihang rehat? I am not asking because I am a "rehat" enthusiast. Sikh Rehat Maryada satisfied me in its practicality and brevity. My question is purely for purposes of sorting out historical and cultural rationales.

    in my opinion its consistent with the Jhatka concept...killing with ONE stroke. In fact the Gun-shot to the brain is instantaneous death - true jhatka. They cut the head off to collect the blood..(for tilak purpoese).

    I agree with Gyani ji. This is pretty consistent with Jhatka.

    There was a time when there used to be Muslmaan Nihangs as well. At these times, to solve the argument between Nihang Sikhs and Nihang Murids of whether to use halal or jhatka, a gun was used to shoot the animal.

    I don't have the info on this, if there are researchers on this subject on this site, who know more about the muslim murids who were known as the Khulsa as opposed to the Khalsa which sikhs were called, the researchers could enlighten on the subject, unfortunately I know very little.

    I heard this from Nihang Niddar Singh, so someone who knows him or practises Shastar Vidiya can find out more from him, but there are other researchers on the net who know a lot as well.

    Another thing I know is that as opposed to Shaheedi Degh, there is also mureedi degh, which is sukha without being sweetned done in honour of the muslmaan mureed shaheeds.

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!
