The solution to rape epidemic?

2 posts in this topic

Saadh Sangat jeeo.

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh!

Daas has just glanced at an article in which a laywer, economist, social worker and feminist offer their ideas in regards to the solution of the problem of rape.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-20904028

The solutions offered include changes to the law and media.

However nobody has mentioned the disease of the panj chor - 5 thieves - Kam (lust), Krodh (rage), Lobh (greed), Moh (attachment) and Ahankar (ego).

Even the problems of law and media result from the panj chor. Unfortunately the laywers, politicians and journalists cannot identify the disease because the world has neglected the wisdom that is contained in sri Guru Granth Sahib and other major religions. It is the ethics, wisdom and spiritual lessons contained in the various religions that are needed to be revived and taught to bring a revolution.

Also many have called for the system and government to be changed but this is not right. First we must start with ourselves. Let's reform ourselves first. It is not the duty of the school or government to teach us about character, respect, honesty e.t.c. surely this is responsibility of the parents and family. We should not pass on this responsibility to someone else or some other institution.

Daas's opinion is that the weakening faith in Parmeshar, a higher presence that has contributed the epidemic of rape and other crimes. If we had the knowledge and faith that Akaal Purakh resides in every heart then we could never commit a crime. If Akaal Purakh resides in every heart and the entire universe then how could we ever cause harm to another?

ਸਭ ਮਹਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਹੈ ਸੋਇ

Sabẖ mėh joṯ joṯ hai so▫e.

The light of Parmatma (GOD) is residing in every being.


Ŧis ḏai cẖānaṇ sabẖ mėh cẖānaṇ ho▫e.

The light shines in every heart with the light of Parmatma.

Satguru Mehar Karan.

Bhul Chuk Maaf.
