I was talking to this guy, and he asked me something about the Gurus

This is controversial and that is why I have put it in Gupt.

1st statement – the gurus did not want women in power. None of the 10 gurus were a woman, if they believed in equality then they should have a woman Guru.

2nd Statement – Guru Gobind Singh Ji wanted the power his father had. Guru Gobind Singh Ji, wanted his father out of the way so he could take over the sikh rule he wanted. He wanted to create the Army the way he wanted. With this he had all the power.

I do not agree with either of these statements and no way of proving otherwise. Except my true belief in our Gurus and what they have done, I do not have the knowledge to refute these claims.

Can some one help?

Okay we can never understand why god's will is the way it is , but women were sooo totally equal to men (other than the fact they were women and obv. physical and hormonal factors etc.)

One major factor was probably that people in India at that time were undoubtedly sexist.

Can you imagine 10 female gurus trying to preach to a whole bunch of hindu and muslim men, the muslims who believed wives should be covered up and have no right to speak in public like that and hindus who made their wives burn themselves when their husbands die.

Women were obv seen as inferior at the time so it wouldn't have worked unless they performed miracles, how can you preach to someone if they won't listen in the first place?

Our gurus have said so much about women, exalting them in SGGSJ and observing the fact that without women there would be no men so how can they not be respected.

We had equal rights to fight, to learn sikhi, men and women served and made langar including our gurus.

We fought men on horseback, and even led whole army divisions into battle, how many other women of that time did that and how much more of a show of equality can that be?

And yeh no woman offered their heads to Guru Gobind Singh Ji so the panj piyare were men!

As a woman I feel so proud to be sikh, I see muslim women who as much as they may argue about it, are not equal at all and I feel so lucky that our gurus completely turned the whole sexist system around or we'd still be so oppressed.
