In many places, it says that Sikhs are recommended to eat Jhatka,
but no meat is allowed, because it is a sin for us to eat the life of an animal, it was a creation
of Gods aswell, and also because of the 8.4 million life forms

These Sikh extremists are a nuisance, so many of their girls marry white boys, pakistani boys etc in London and they cant do anything about it, why are they so bothered about these things then in a temple?

Its the fact that they're are doing the wrong thing in a TEMPLE,
the fact that they're are marrying goreh, Pakistanis, whoever..etc is one thing,
but the fact that they're proceeding to do the WRONG THING in a GURDWARA,
is why it's a big deal then what it seems....

Akhal Takht even signed a petition thingy, or whatever u call it, saying that a Sikh shouldn't marry a non Sikh.
And they knowingly wen against that in a GURDWARA...

And they also said that ur spouse MUST convert to Sikhi if they are no already..

Sikhs are more peaceful than muslims, the proof is the muslims all over the world.
There are many muslim girls marrying non muslims including Sikhs.

There is a muslim girl married in our family.
