A Catholic woman posted that some Sikh woman started having adulterous relations with the Catholic's husband. I posted: Then some anonymous "giani" replies: My response: Where did you get the idea that Sikhs are not supposed to be repsonsible before the sangat? I'm guessing you view Sikhism as merely an individual endeavor. (If not, reply with what you meanwhen you think Sikhs have no responsibility before the Sangat.) That's not Guru Nanak Dev ji's conception of religion. (I do not want to get sidetracked on terminology of religion vs. dharam. If you want to call it dharam, fine.) You do know that Guru Nanak ji created a panth, right? ਮਾਰਿਆ ਸਿਕਾ ਜਗਤ੍ਰਿ ਵਿਚਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਪੰਥ ਚਲਾਇਆ। Maariaa Sikaa Jagati Vichi Naanak Niramal Panthhu Chalaaiaa | In the world, he established the authority (of his doctrines) and started a religion, devoid of any impurity (niramal panth). ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੪੫ ਪੰ. ੪ A panth is an organized religion. It's not a free-for-all. Question: Is a Sikh responsible before the Guru? If not, then what's the point of calling himself a Sikh? If, on the other hand, a Sikh is responsible before the Guru, then who holds the Guruship today? Answer: The Sangat/panth/Panj Piyare. Do you deny Guru Gobind Singh ji invested the Guruship within the Panth (Sangat)?
