Sometimes i wonder why the indians keep forwarding each other sikh jokes . Most of the times the joke doesn't have the punchline on the sardar. I mean you could replace "sardar" with "gujju" , "haryanvi" , "madrasi" , "american" , "canadian" or anything else and it would still be funny . So why only sardar I wonder . Well if you can make a future generation of a community hate themselves and their distinct symbols because those symbols make them the target of ridicule, then you have as well done a "soft genocide" on the community. It seems to me that there's a malignant agenda behind sikh jokes. or is it because indians think we look funny , not that most of them are good looking anyways .
Sat Sri Akal Sangat, Here I am to discuss a very important issue, Most of you must have gone through the answers to the question "What is the funniest sardar joke you've heard?" on www.quora.com. I had also gone through and I felt bad, as a huge social platform like quora was being used to shame Sikhs. Some people may say , it is "fun", but targeting a particular religion in public like this is not acceptable. Anyway, I happened to edit the question(which Quora allows). However, the person who had posted the question reframed it to the same again; I edited it again and this process continued for sometime. After that I mailed quora-moderation to take action against this question. The other person must have also mailed them to check why someone (me, I was anonymous) repeatedly editing the question. I did get a message from quora saying that it is not okay to edit any question in this way, also, Quora removed all the joke answers from the question. But still the question is there; the moderation team has reframed it to "What are some Sardar Jokes?". It has also mentioned some strict guidelines which the answers, if any, must adhere to. Two or three new answers(jokes)had been posted but they were removed as they didn't meet the guidelines. Although Quora will be strictly observing the joke answers now, and would remove them if they are actually demeaning the religion, but still, I feel that the presence of the question itself is unacceptable. Why should such a question be allowed on a big social platform like Quora, which is meant for knowledge and awareness sharing? Here is the link to the reframed question : http://www.quora.com/What-are-some-Sardar-jokes All the members here, I would request you to go to this link and downvote and report this question. If a sufficient number of downvotes is reached, Quora will be forced to remove it. Also please write a formal email to this email id : email@example.com, explaining that this question is hurting religious sentiments and should be removed. ] Please show unity and do this ! Thank You :-)
