I think it’s because of the concept of how everyone of welcome to any gurudwara. But like u have a point. Why should we let the person who attacked the darbar sahib, massacred many children, and destroyed the akal takht, into the darbar sahib
No it isn’t fine. Whoever told you that is an abuser. Why don’t you ask your parents to slap you now and see if you like it. A child is no less of a human than you. Find another way. There’s a reason child helplines help kids who have been hit. Because it’s ABUSE.
No. You should understand that you should treat others as you would like to be treated, most of all vulnerable people like children and the elderly. People who hit such beings are cowards and abusers. Hitting is abuse regardless of whether your parents thought it to be normal growing up or not.
If you wouldn’t want to be hit, you shouldn’t hit others, period.
