In a video by the Sikh Jagraj Singh, Hinduism was discussed in relation to a passage from the Guru Granth Sahib.

In the GGS, the Guru Nanak described the Hindus as hypocrites for eating with Muslims as he claims that according to Hinduism the Muslims and indeed all non Hindus are untouchables and should not be eaten with.

Therefore, my question is this: Can a Hindu eat with a non Hindu and are those non Hindus classed as Dalit?

  • Can you please share the link to that video as well. Thanks. Guru Nanak himself was a Hindu by birth so not sure what you say is correct. Also Sikhs are known for organizing langars where every one can come and have food irrespective of their religion or caste hence it is opposite to what is stated above.

    I am not aware of all Hindus but orthodox Hindu bramhanas (especially those who still follow certain vedic rituals to this day) eat only with fellow bramhanas, are served only by brahmana men/women and only eat food prepared by bramahanas or themselves. Non-bramahanas do not hover around the vicinity. Nor "impure" bramhanas.
