Akal Takhat Rehat Maryada allows to eat Jhatka Meat

In Section 6 of Akal Takhat Rehat Maryada, it is written as,
Ceremony of Baptism or Initiation
Article XXIV Sub-section p:
The undermentioned four transgressions (tabooed practices) must be avoided
  • Dishonouring the hair;
  • Eating the meat of an animal slaughtered the Muslim way (Ritual Killing)
  • Cohabiting with a person other than one's spouse;
  • Using tobacco.

This clearly states that Sikhs have no Ban on taking Jhatka Meat.
