    "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?

    I'm not against eating meat (I eat meat everyday) but when that goats head was removed was the body still twitching and moving or was that just me who saw that? I thought that was supposed to be a quick, painless death.

    You are right in your observation!

    Body indeed was twiching

    Pain is not something physical but the preception that is processed by Brain centre ( Thalamus to be specific ) and the information passed on to even higher centre that make one concious of pain

    But all the sensory preceptions( almost ) has to pass through spinal cord to reach Brain and also all the Motor activity messages also pass through spinal cord from CNS to reach Periphery..

    So when Head is cut suddenly animal might feel pain for the fraction of second while cuting is still in the process but once head is seperate
    Brain stop recieving signals and hence cant precieve pain

    But the Spinal cord still keep on firing neurons in uncontrolled or autonomus fashion and produce movemnets in the head less body without higher control.

    Jhatka is the safest way to eat healthy Meat - as you can choose a healthy animal

    Nihangs do Jatka na d also serve it in Langar on various occasions and its called Dalee da Parshad

    Everyday one half of the creation eats up the other half as food and as nothin is deviod of Sat/Akal so whether you eat Meat or Dal ( pulses)just Chill!
