What do you expect when we had such a powerful movement that totally reconstructed Sikh ithihaas during colonialism, with hordes of our people buying into it? That's why anti-DG people don't surprise me. I know why they are that way.
I think there is something intrinsic in specific people that make them less susceptible to brainwashing too. Look at Sohan Singh Bhakna compared to other sepoys from that period. A sort of robust mental constitution and a deep innate hatred of being fooled into subservience even if rewarded for it. Some people are easier to tame and break than others. Some are a lot more easier to manipulate as well. Some will go along for a fist full of gold (or a LOT less with many apnay). Some can't be outsiders under any circumstances. Many are terrified with any physical consequences this may have upon them.
But this same impulse for avoiding enslavement, when gone too far, can take weaker minds into weirdo territory too. People seeing conspiracies everywhere, and having problems with being grounded in reality.
Sadly the SWJ type of Sikhs haven't used common sense and read Sikh ithihaas properly they read only sugar coated stuff. They seem to think Sikhs sat around a fire with everyone holding hands singing komb by ya.
Bit like how most ignorant arrogent muslim nationalists go around preaching islam is the best trying to convert others with falsehood but yet they havent read any of their quranic ayats or hadiths that expose the true backward nature of islam. And when knowledge non-muslims show and read it to them for the first time they tend to shut up and backtrack running away with tail between their legs.
Our Sikhs need to acknowledge true dark gory history that yes atrocities were committed by our side too at times but it was done so in times were we were fighting for our very survival after suffering extreme persecution and oppression by the various invader enemies. And if it came to our survival or getting rolled over by living totally up to Sikh principles all the time then yes Sikhs wouldn't exist right now we'd be in the history books especially when 1947 happened for sure.
It was an innate sense more than any type of brainwashing or being pushed into believing various things by anyone, BUT I suppose I was very much drawn to the deeply introspective, pacifist Sant movement as a child and a youth, which was very popular when I was growing up in the 90s, where love, light, goodness, unending meditation minus any actual physical participation in life, etc., were considered to be the total sum to which we must aspire rather than one particular half of the whole. In hindsight, I think that kind of mentality contributed to a demeanour that was overtly trusting and very, very forgiving. I was weak and soft. In essence, the necessary killer instinct every male needs to survive and succeed was dulled and eventually forced out of me by this irrational need to be a perfect, saintly being who was above the crass brusqueness of the material plane, lol. It required the death of a parent and the subsequent turbulence of a few other dark issues to overwhelm me throughout my teens and for much of my 20s for me to realise my entire mentality needed to change. I basically needed to rewire my brain, relearn everything I thought was true, and then begin from scratch. Truly, the most scariest thing in life is to challenge and dismantle what you've been lead to believe is true in every sense, because what your soul is telling you when you lay in bed at night doesn't equate with the world you're seeing through your new eyes which are now beginning to see something else.
The likes of Sunny Hundal operate from a place where their ideology and their activism stems from a detached, almost uninvolved exercise in protest where there are barely any personal stakes in it for them. It's not really a life and death situation for them, or something that's affected them on a deeply spiritual or existential level; it's more of an intellectual exercise or a pursuit of notoriety that comes from a belief system they've unquestioningly absorbed without challenge. It isn't something they've, to borrow an earlier phrase I used, formed in the crucible of adversity. That kind of belief and outlook doesn't breed the rage and the disenchantment and the anger that comes from betrayal and being discarded on the trash heap.
Yes, I'm strangely serene and calm with what's going on. Sometimes a spade is a spade, and there's no further explanation required. Other times it pays to be a little more thoughtful and critical. Being ahead of the curve, if not for the benefit of others, then at least for the sake of realising that voice inside is in good working order, is a positive attribute. Ultimately, if Corona comes knocking, I'm ready. It'll be a life cut short, but I realise Hukam is never wrong no matter how it appears to us.
True these nasty sexual frustrated guys have no limits. Also the reason why most muslim men sexually target and exploit non-muslim women they find them an easier target than muslim girls who they could be killed for by an angry muslim mob or the relatives of the girl. The poor girls of hindu, sikh and christian minorities in muslim countries are in constant danger and fear.
