Do Moneh Have The Right To Ask Sikh Question Or Talk About Sikhi?


Recommended Posts

they can clean but are they equal? Can they talk or ask questions of sikhi or do katha can they get on stage and preach sikhi? can a moneh read an akhand paath?

From personal experience I have seen moneh doing various seva. From doing seva of Maharaj's Takht to seva of participating in an Akhand Paath and langar. When they were doing seva of Maharaj's Takht di seva it was a race to get the job done regardless of how it will look. There was no pyare and sharda put into the seva. Also during an Akhand Paath the moneh was more interested in who was coming and bowing before Maharaj than reading Sri Jap Ji Sahib. Also in the langar hall I have seen moneh rush through langar di seva and the main focus is to get the job done. A phone call comes, pick up the call and start talking while giving out langar. Sitting and talking with many moneh about seva and they say the same thing. Seva is a job.............get it done and leave............so what if sucha is not completely kept.

Katha can only be done by learned individuals. Example is of GS Mann who speaks on Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji and he has a hair cut.

If that's the case why do have so many unlearned people who are keshdhari doing katha ? And why isn't GS Mann invited to more events to do katha on stages? He is very learned but isn't as widely booked as he could be.

Go ask the Gurdwaras that have these unlearned keshdhari guys doing katha. Well for the most part many Gurdwaras are controlled by people that want to push their views on Sikhs. So they would not have GS Mann come in to teach Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji as many of them don't even accept Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.

I have also seen moneh come on stage and make a complete fool of themselves on wedding days. These unlearned moneh start singing about worldly entanglements as true love.

Reminds me of the old h dhami doing kirtan in a gurdwara video alot of people thought it was great, he was off note and forgot he was performing in a gurdwara where you are supposed to display utmost humility instead of a nightclub with great confidence and stage presence.

I hope this learned hair cut GS Mann is not allowed to speak in any Gurudwara.

were punjabi hindu gursewaks disowned as sikhs? Such as the guy who gave hot milk to the chotee shabizaday?

Dalbir Singh Veerji from my understanding all Gurswevaks, though perhaps Hindu and Muslim and Jain originally, were Guru de Sikh ultimately.

For example Baba Moti Ram Mehra was a Guru da Sikh but enemies of our Qaum have transformed his pavithar memory into being thought of as a Hindu Kashyap Rajput. The truth is Moti Ram Mehra Ji was a Guru da Sikh who fought for the Khalsa Panth but suddenly a bunch of crooks are trying to claim Baba as their ancestor.

If this taliban mentality doesnt stop then soon we will have a bhagat sain gurdwara..

I totally agree with the direction of your point Satbachan Veerji but just to remind readers of the Sikh vision of (Kesdhari) Bhagat Sain Ji that we hold (in contrast to our enemies later portraits of Bhagat Sain Ji)

The great thing about this thread is that the overwhelming majority of the Panth welcome + respect our sehajdhari brothers + sisters to participate more within + on behalf of the Panth in contrast to a small but vocal minority of haters amongst us who want to see the Sikh Panth's population made as small + powerless as possible.

I've heard people say only a gursikh can do katha otherwise these "lost" sikhs will do kintu printu "confuse" people.

Have a read of what a guru pyareo said on the fb feed of this post:

Sonya Nayun Im a innocent Sikh..I don't drink smoke or eat meat. I pray whenever I can I work for my money. I do roles at the gurudwara but for my fashion I cut my hair...does that mean I'm not Sikh?

Sonya Nayun Sikh is Sikh mona or not. Sikh with a turban who drink alchol and smoke drugs and eat meat why should they have more rights?

I would like to ask, When you cut your hair, do you think of Guru Ji?

Everyone who wants to gain knowledge has the right to ask about Sikhi.

But when it comes to talking on stage or in sangat, then certain maryada has to be followed and I don’t think it’s discrimination to ensure that only Amritdhari kirtanis/kathavachaks/parcharaks sit on stage.

Spot on with this one. "Cut hair" so called learned and self proclaimed scholars cannot come on stage and speak in a Gurudwara.

I have seen non sikh scholars presenting excellent research papers on sikhism in our gurudwaras. Sikhi does not debar anyone from

presenting his positive views on sikhi.

Keep in mind they are not performing kirtan or katha, they are presenting their research work.

Now coming to someone objecting to GS Mann.GS Mann is a sikh but has not hair. He has done excellent job in researching

history of Dasam Granth.His presentation has silenced many fifth grade self made scholars who were throwing mud on bani

of Guru Gobind Singh ji. He is not doing kirtan or katha in gurudawras. He has love for sikhi and that is why he is in this field.

Who knows when with akal purakh kirpa he becomes a singh.

Lastly Guru Gobind singh ji has over hundred poets in his court and many of them were non sikhs. Let us learn to appreciate

academic contribution positively for furthering of sikhi.

    • @GurjantGnostic what do you think ? and @dallysingh101   And related      
    • It should not really in the courts. But to us, probably yes.  @GurjantGnostic you will be aware of Kyle Rittenhouse.    What do you think   Rittenhouse attorney wants to show victim was sex offender Conservatives Kyle Rittenhouse Anthony Huber Twitter Madison | The Independent Rittenhouse attorney wants to show victim was sex offender Kyle Rittenhouse's attorney wants a judge to allow him to argue that one of the men his client killed during a protest in Wisconsin last year was a sex offender, in hopes of showing the man was trying to steal Rittenhouse's gun because he couldn't possess one Via AP news wire Tuesday 06 July 2021 19:28   Kyle Rittenhouse s attorney wants a judge to allow him to argue that one of the men his client fatally shot during a Wisconsin protest was a sex offender, saying it supports a defense theory that he attacked Rittenhouse and intended to take his gun because he couldn't legally possess one. Mark Richards maintained in court filings Thursday that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of having sex with a minor in Arizona in 2002 and was prohibited from possessing firearms. Rosenbaum started the altercation with Rittenhouse in hopes of making off with his assault-style rifle, which only bolsters Rittenhouse’s self-defense argument, Richards wrote.
    • Britain suffers record rise in alcohol deaths during COVID pandemic Reuters LONDON, Dec 7 (Reuters) - The United Kingdom saw a record rise in the number of deaths caused by alcohol misuse last year, which public health officials said was linked to the wider social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some 8,974 people died of alcohol-specific causes in 2020, 18.6% more than in 2019 and the largest increase since records began in 2001, Britain's Office for National Statistics said.   Previous data from health authorities in England had shown a 21% rise in deaths from alcoholic liver disease last year, when COVID-19 lockdowns closed pubs but led to many heavy drinkers consuming more alcohol at home. read more Between 2012 and 2019, alcohol death rates in the United Kingdom had been stable, the ONS said.   "The fact that mortality rates from key causes of death related to alcohol increased in 2020 suggests that an increase in alcohol harm was a wider impact of the pandemic," a public-sector body, the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, said. Pinpointing the exact factors which drove the increase in deaths would take time, the ONS said.   The total volume of alcohol sold in Britain in 2020 fell slightly. But a survey in March 2021 showed a rise in the number of people who admitted drinking what health officials consider dangerous amounts - equivalent to five bottles of wine a week for men, or three and a half for women. In line with previous years, men were more than twice as likely as women to die of alcohol-specific causes. Liver disease was the biggest cause of alcohol-specific deaths, accounting for 78% of fatalities, followed by mental and behavioural disorders at 12% and 'external causes' such as accidental poisoning at 6%. Death rates in both Scotland and Northern Ireland were around 50% higher than in England or Wales. https://www.reuters.com/world/uk/britain-suffers-record-rise-alcohol-deaths-during-covid-pandemic-2021-12-07/
