Key points - Nirankari Mission
Wrong Naam - The naam given in Nirankari Mission is totally useless
God is considered formless in Nirankari Mission whereas Holy Scriptures prove God to be in form
Avtar Bani - Meat Eating is allowed which is totally wrong and against the constitution of God
Naam given in Nirankari Mission
Ek Tu hi Nirankaar, Mai Teri Sharan, Mainu baksh lo - एक तू ही निरंकार, मैं तेरी शरण, मेनू बक्ष लो
This is the naam given by Sant Nirankari Mission Universal brotherhood Gurus which is totally self made and arbitrary. There is no mention of this naam in any of the Holy Scriptures available to mankind.
Form of God in Nirankari Mission
Sant Nirankari Mission considers God to be formless which is against all the Holy Scriptures viz Shri Guru Granth Sahib, Bhagavad Gita, Vedas, Bible and Quran Sharif etc.
All the Holy Scriptures prove that the Supreme God is in Human form. Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Bible, Vedas etc very clearly mention the Human form of Supreme God. This proves that these Nirankari Gurus had no knowledge about The Supreme Lord and are incomplete and thus cannot provide salvation to their disciples.
Avtar Bani - Baba Avtar Singh ji
Baba Avtar Singh authored a book called "Avtar Bani" which is considered the cornerstone of the Nirankari Mission. It has been named after its aurthor Baba Avtar Singh ji. All the disciples of this faith follow the teachings of this book as it is considered the ideology of Sant Nirankari Mission.
Avtar Bani on Meat Eating
Disciples of Sant Nirankari Mission justify eating meat by quoting some lines from this book Avtar Bani. It has been mentioned in section 9C of this book Avtar Bani that eating and drinking has nothing to do with soul.
Avtar Bani - Section 9C
"God has neither prescribed nor forbidden any particular food
Whatever we eat or drink relates to the body, it has no relation to the soul.
O'man sit and ponder sometime with a cool serene mind
How does it matter to you if someone wears a dhoti, long underwear or a shallower
You may eat, drink and wear whatever you like....""
Excerpt from Avtar Bani - Nirankari Mission
The above lines speak for the spiritual level of Avtar Singh and other Nirankari Gurus. A saint who professes eating meat by saying it has no relation to the soul and also says that God has not forbidden any food is a total ignorant and has or had no knowledge about the Holy Scriptures.
Kabir Sahib's Bani, Bani from Guru Granth Sahib and order of God from Bible clearly says that humans should eat vegetarian foot and meat eaters cannot achieve God
Kabir Vani on Meat Eating
कबीर-माँस अहारी मानई, प्रत्यक्ष राक्षस जानि।
ताकी संगति मति करै, होइ भक्ति में हानि।।1।।
Kabir Sahib is saying that those who consume meat consider them clearly to be demons. Do not remain in their company, your bhakti will suffer.
कबीर-माँस माँस सब एक है, मुरगी हिरनी गाय।
आँखि देखि नर खात है, ते नर नरकहिं जाय।।6।।
Meat may be from a cow, a deer or a chicken, those who consume meat are destined to hell.
कबीर-पापी पूजा बैठिकै, भखै माँस मद दोइ।
तिनकी दीक्षा मुक्ति नहिं, कोटि नरक फल होइ।।10।।
Those who take initiation from Gurus, who consume meat and alcohol, never achieve salvation, instead are destined to deep hell.
कबीर-जीव हनै हिंसा करै, प्रगट पाप सिर होय।
निगम पुनि ऐसे पाप तें, भिस्त गया नहिं कोय।।14।।
Those who kill living beings for eating are heinously sinful people. They can never go to heaven. they go to hell.
Shri Guru Granth Sahib on Meat Eating
SGGS page 140
ਜੇ ਰਤੁ ਲਗੈ ਕਪੜੈ ਜਾਮਾ ਹੋਇ ਪਲੀਤੁ ॥
ਜੋ ਰਤੁ ਪੀਵਹਿ ਮਾਣਸਾ ਤਿਨ ਕਿਉ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਚੀਤੁ ॥
If one's clothes are stained with blood, the garment becomes polluted.
Those who suck the blood of human beings-how can their consciousness be pure?
ਕਬੀਰ ਜੋਰੀ ਕੀਏ ਜੁਲਮੁ ਹੈ ਕਹਤਾ ਨਾਉ ਹਲਾਲੁ ॥ ਦਫਤਿਰ ਲੇਖਾ ਮਾਂਗੀਐ ਤਬ ਹੋਇਗੋ ਕਉਨੁ ਹਵਾਲੁ ॥੧੮੭॥
Forcefully and without any compassion you kill a goat etc. and say that you are doing halal. When your account will be called for in the court of God, then who will save you there?
ਕਬੀਰ ਖੂਬੁ ਖਾਨਾ ਖੀਚਰੀ ਜਾ ਮਿਹ ਅਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਲੋਨੁ ॥
ਹੇਰਾ ਰੋਟੀ ਕਾਰਨੇ ਗਲਾ ਕਟਾਵੈ ਕਉਨੁ ॥੧੮੮॥
Superior most food is khichri (dish made from rice and lentils with salt), eat that. One who cuts someone else's neck has to pay back.
SGGS page 483
ਰੋਜਾ ਧਰੈ ਮਨਾਵੈ ਅਲਹੁ ਸੁਆਦਿਤ ਜੀਅ ਸੰਘਾਰੈ ॥ ਆਪਾ ਦੇਖਿ ਅਵਰ ਨਹੀ ਦੇਖੈ ਕਾਹੇ ਕਉ ਝਖ ਮਾਰੈ ॥੧॥
You keep fasts to please Allah (God), while you murder other beings for taste. You only look after your own interests and don't care about others. You are wasting your time, God will never be pleased with you.

Countless are fools, blinded by ingnorance. Countless are thieves and embezzlers. Countless impose their will by force. Countless cut-throats and are ruthless killers. Countless are sinners who keep on sinning. Countless are liars, wandering lost in their lies. Countless are wretches, eating filth as their food.
