Is it true reflection?????

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa

Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
I was excited to see a booklet on sikhism at Wadda Gurudwara, Singapore and had all praise in my mind for management to educate sangat particularly non-sikh about sikhism so i took one copy for myself so that i can give to someone who wants to know about sikhism as this thin booklets is good way to start with

I started reading and found that it may confuse beginner about sikhism particularly the following excerpt from booklet seems to be highly objectionable at least to me.

i dont want to put myself in this controversy whether meat eating is ok in sikhism or not but i really found this a bit weird that it is propagated at gurudwaras. IS it True reflection???

Humble appeal to Central Sikh Gurudwara Board, Singapore(Publisher of the booklet) to withdraw these booklet in light of following gurmat vichar
ਕਬੀਰ ਭਾਂਗ ਮਾਛੁਲੀ ਸੁਰਾ ਪਾਨਿ ਜੋ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਨੀ ਖਾਂਹਿ ॥ਤੀਰਥ ਬਰਤ ਨੇਮ ਕੀਏ ਤੇ ਸਭੈ ਰਸਾਤਲਿ ਜਾਂਹਿ ॥੨੩੩॥
Kabīr bẖāʼng mācẖẖulī surā pān jo jo prānī kẖāʼnhi.Ŧirath baraṯ nėm kī­ė ṯė sabẖai rasāṯal jāʼnhi. 233"O Kabeer! Those mortals who consume marijuana, fish and wine - no matter what pilgrimages, fasts and rituals they follow, it all goes to waste and is of no use. 233"(Ang 1377)

Another point which looks a bit undigested is " Freedom of Worship" it says to practise whatever religion one wished and whatever way ... really so now we can do all brahamanical practices and rituals????
On Page 16 it says "Sikhs believe that one sikh is a sikh, two sikhs is an assembly, and five sikhs is God." is it really a true reflection of sikhism which is portrayed in this booklet??
