Because Kosher does not refer to a method of killing. It is a broader term that refers to purity and can apply to food but other things as well. It includes cooking fats, vegetable and not, flours, cracker meal for dumplings, lotions and creams, candles, and more.How can that be Kosher?
I thought of that kosher scene as I wrote and decided not to bring it up. I'm glad someone else did.Mai Harinder Kaur ji an spnadmin ji, if you have not seen the movie "Earthlings (2003)" you may try (WARNING: Some scenes you will remember for the rest of your lives so be careful, I know I will). It has PETA oriented approach to show worst of the worst that animals suffer through in food chain and clothing/fur production. There was a scene also of a "Kosher" slaughter of a Buffalo, pretty disgusting. A Chinese guy skinning a live Wolf/Fox hung upside down while the animal keeps looking at the camera helplessly.
Sat Sri Akal.
I agree the subject itself is silly, but it might not be to someone who really doesn't know.ISNT IT AMAZING that SIKHS seem to be getting pulled into this QUICKSAND so fast and furious..day by day....
1. The Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji avoided this entire diet thingy as fit for MOORAKHS to discuss and fight over.
2. The Sikhs who formulated the SRM...got influenced by OUTSIDE FORCES (Hindu/Muslim religious environment)..and formulated the Jhatka/hallal restriction.
3. Now Sikhs are asking..is it ok to eat "kosher"...?? Kosher diednt even feature as aword even in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji !! or in the SRM....
4. Tomorrow Sikhs may be asking..about Chinese food..Buddhist food..Foods that a re OK for Neplai Hindus ?? for Kazhakstaani Mongols ?? for Americna Indian tribes living in Nicaragua ??..Can SIKHS eat this and That....????
I am AMAZED at how far sikhs can DEVIATE away from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and the SERIOUS STUFF in the 1429 pages....to simply FRIVILOUS STUFF....meant only for MOORAKHS. I wonder if all of us have already EXHAUSTED all the HEAVY STUFF in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji..which 10 Guru sahibs spent over 250 YEARS to bring to us....that we must waste time on this utterly frivilous subject...???
Ishnabhenji,Sometimes Sikhi can be so confusing, it is difficult to know what to believe.
Is Sikhi supposed to be this complicated?
If Sikhs just did what Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji told us to do it would be a lot easier, but there would be no SRM, and no Khalsa. There would be no uncut hair, no turban, people would eat what they like, and simply be honest, hard working, good natured citizens absorbed in the rememberence of God.
Everything else is too bloomin' complicated.
