Sikhs Marrying Their Own Cousins

Recommended Posts

On the Nihal's morning discussion show (on the BBC Asian Network) they were discussing (after 10am) for an hour about religious tensions amongst the south Asian communities. A Muslim woman on the show stated that she had made a documentary on forced marriages were Sikhs were forced into marrying their own cousins. I was really shocked by this. Is this true? Does this really happen? How can such a marriage occur in a Gurdwara were a Sikh couple are each others cousins?


Listen about 1:45 minutes into show.

This topic is not worth discussing. If anyone has GUTTS, answer this question of mine ?????????????????????????

If an annoucement is made,

anyone who converts to sikh faith IN HINDUSTAN and after that marries his own cousin will get 1 crore rupees, how many will do it ?????? ??????????????????????????????????????????

As usual BBC Asian Network always chatting anti-Sikh <banned word filter activated>! I don't listen to their morning discussion show's often, but whenever I do it's always quite demeaning for Sikhs. Somehow they always find a Sikh making a complete prat of themselves on air, or a woman calling in saying how she is from a sikh background and now married to a muslim. They love to make all sikh's out to either complete khalistani fanatic's or desi jatt sharabi's.

You remember what Sonia Deol did back in day when she let that girl (who again was a Sikh converted to Islam) call Guru Nanak Dev Ji a ' sheythaan' (devil)! <banned word filter activated>!! Its always your own people - never the enemy!

In khatri /Arora community you cannot marriage in same gotra and first cousin.  In Hindu khatri community its non existence.  In arora community some uneducated people do it in back times ,  but that is rare case 10 in millions.  In today  world arora community consider it taboo and sin.  I dindt know about sikh arora,  i even think its uncommon.

I have been with thousands of Hindu  khatris /Arora, i never heard about it.  I never see they marriage first cousin or same gotra.  I have been close to mehta punjabi (khatri) community, they are totally against it and consider taboo.  Some Arora people in past due it due to less education and low population or poverty.  All arora community doesn't do it.  Some individuals of the community do it, which is very less population - 10 in millions.   Even Arora community against it and considers it taboo.  In modern times,  they considered it sin and taboo. I dindt know about sikh arora people,   i know they even dindt do it. If anyone doing it from any community we are totally against it.

If anyone doing cousin marriage,  that is wrong. If any sikh arora people do it,  please dont do it.  You are neglecting arora community name.  Hindu arora people are totally against it. I know even sikh arora people are not doing it,  its exception in every community.  2-4 person did and whole community have to get negative image.

    • First thing, these types of situations aren't anything new to the panth. Second thing, if we don't do different moves to previous ones, how can we expect outcomes to be different? Plus, if he's put his head up above the parapet like that, I'm sure he full well knows where it can go.  I'm sure he's not naive.    They should break out all those people who have been imprisoned for Waheguru knows how long, well after their sentences were completed. Actually that should have been done a long time ago. 
    • Hello everyone! Its a been a minute...How you been? Guess i am back because H*ndus are out full force wanting to k*ll Sikhs ..... We are facing turmoil.... Meanwhile on twitter they going insanse with their genocide threats memes etc I dont even know anymore what there is left.....sick and tired facing injustices  Either Amritpal will be k*illed of or an 'accident' like Deep Sidhu  Its insane last 3 years have been like we are in the same ditch cycle  @dallysingh101 @californiasardar1 @Kaurr @MisterrSingh (and rest i can't remember)
    • There is a lot of false media , false allegations , false whereabouts of Bhai Amritpal Singh. A person who has taken a step , to devote is life in helping :- 1. Those who on drugs 2. A lifeline for those Mothers who see there children ,dosed up in Drugs  3. Telling them to take amrit , do meditation , do seva , read gurbani 4. Stand up for your rights 5. Get together as a kaum  6. Speaking up against atrocities carried out on the minorities   He is deemed as a threat to Punjab , for his actions . How low can the Police , MPs, the leadshership in India go . They are very threatened by Bhai Amritpal Singhs mindset , a mindset to free the Sikhs , and unravel the corruption behind Indias politics.  May waheguru keep Bhai Amritpal Singh in chardikala and give him strength to fight against injustices and wake up the Kaum worldwide regardless of ones background.  
    • There's bus service called Indo-Canadian operating from Delhi to main cities of Punjab (like Ludhiana). Never tried it but I know people who have and heard it's quite safe and stops along the way at restaurants. From Ludhiana, you can take a local bus to Moga city and book a hotel (don't know much about Punjab hotels as I never stayed in one). You can book online for the bus.  I've travelled to Punjab for a long time, as a local of that area, it's perfectly safe. Just take normal pre-cautions. Local shop food in Punjab is safe to eat if you can handle oil, masala's, etc.  You don't have to worry about being targeted because of being Sabat Soorat. Seen plenty of Sabat Soorat men and Nihangs and no one targets them. Police are not an issue, they don't bother anyone whose trying to get by their life normally. You can keep a few hundred rupees in your pocket just in case you do get into trouble with them in an unlikely incident.  To blend in, Try to dress like a local. Wear a white Kurta-Pajama or simple western clothing  Pretend you're just visiting from another Indian or Punjab city (don't tell people you're from abroad as you can get overcharged for cheap things) Communicate in local Punjabi as much as possible or speak in an Indian accent if you can't. But some NRI's have accents that give it away easily.  Bargain when you're buying things (apart from food places or if the shop specifically says "fixed price"). Bargaining is great and you can bring down the price by half.  Lastly, just enjoy your stay, there's a lot of history to explore in Punjab too apart from the mainstream/popular places like Wagah border, Harmandir Sahib or Chandigarh.
