Basics Of Sikhi Vs Dawah Man

Mehtab Singh

Recommended Posts

Fantastic effort by Bhai Jagraj Singh! Many in other forums are saying they would have said this/that, but hindsight is a wonderful thing! Considering he was put on the spot and this was not pre-arranged Singh Ji could not have done any more. We can all learn alot from this interview however, and need to arm ourselves with an arsenal of knowledge to counteract exactly these types of encounters.

Imran obviously did not lack intelligence and tried to win his argument on one point to drive home the point that the Quran in his eyes is the only revealed scripture due to it having these rhetorical devices (WTH) was he on about? There is no anth to Gurbani, we cannot put a realistic timescale on how long it would take to perform vichaar on Ek Oankaar, let alone Mool Mantar, the meanings change depending on ones avstha!

Indirectly he was undermining Gurbani & shaaheedis of our beloved Guru Sahibs by claiming Islamic Scholars have written books with every word beginning with 'Sheen' and how they have gone through pain without surrendering.

His true colours were revealed when he mentioned his knowledge of cruelty at the hands of fundamentalists and how it had 'almost' brought him to tears???

Das was happy to hear such a conversation finish on the importance and beauty of Naam. The speaker is Muslim and I'm sure he has much love for his faith and we should not expect someone not to have. Although we might not agree with a belief system we should be aware they exist and engage in dialogue and listen. What also came out of this is a profound sense of being blessed to have the chance to chant Naam and to be Sikh.

The average IQ level of his subscribers seems to be 70 or at best 80.

The clear winner is Bhai Jagraj Singh, they use fundamentalism and blind faith and parrot science, reason and logic without knowing what they're parroting. A third party non-Sikh and non-Musli will declare Bhai Jagraj Singh as the most logical and have won the debate.

These guys can parrot their crap in countries like UK and Canada where blind political correctness has infected society and a lot of Sikhs, but here in USA they won't be able to go around parring non-sense like this.

    • *bump I firmly believe that one quote in regards to cannabis is not written by Guru Nanak Dev Ji (O'lord the fear of thee). B/c nasha is nasha. But cannabis is a bit a different since it was used for medicinal purposes in India also. 
    • I feel gurdwaras are maybe somewhat getting back to their functions as dharmsalas containing schools and learning centres. With panjabi schools, gurmat classes, santhiya, martial arts, keertan training, with sikhi camps occasionally in towns, there is somewhat some functions connected to traditional gurdwaras of the past.
    • I do sometimes think that the function of a gurdwara has expanded to things that were not expected before. We expect them to be political institutions, we want them to be social clubs, we want them to be creches, we want them to be daycare centres. 
    • there's too many Kenya Singhs in those kinda gurdwaras, really chummy chummy with the goras and politicians, fixo the beards to the max and younger generations just trimming it instead of getting into the fixo malarkey, lack of open beards and turbans you can take off like hats, don't make for intimidating or annakhi singhs. I heard that pakistanis try to pickup girls from the Slough Ramgharia gurdwara.  They need to join with the other 2 gurdwaras in Slough to help them out, they can't act like the elders did where they split from the Singh Sabha gurdwara because they were too aggressive, now is the time to use that aggression.  And the Guru Maneyo Granth gurdwara Bath Road gets nationwide sangat on Sundays, so just use those numbers in Slough! in these gurdwaras, gyanis and sewadaars are known by the regular sangat, and regular sangat is close knit. Activities and panjabi schools are also good as most of the same children come.  In both areas, I don't like the lack of cooperation between Ramgharia and Singh Sabha gurdwaras. Overall it's a benefit to have gurdwaras in at least 2 different locations in big towns and cities. But it's bad if they don't cooperate, especially in major issues that Khalsa is known for. Ramgharia gurdwaras like to rep up Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia, with the Slough gurdwara even having a statue. But the lack of keeping Khalsa rehit, looking too scared and cowardly to keep full beards or open beards, not acknowledging the Khalsa Nihang Singh mentality of Jassa Singh and being stuck in the kenya Singh mentality, not even willing to read Chaupai Sahib properly during Rehras, and many of these Ramgharia gurdwaras are not even willing to keep basic rehit of allowing sitting on the floor for langar and allowing shoes inside as well, all these behaviours aren't working for chardi kala of the panth! It's like they are trying to keep their own type of sikhi, it's not even a tradition, just being stuck in their own box, they are not in the colonial British army, or serving in the world wars, or making train tracks or some other jobs for the gora, why do they behave this way, this archaic stuff in gurdwara? And doesn't do justice to Jassa Singh Ramgharia, who would have been a rehitee Nihang Singh, annakhi Singhs who defeated the enemies and kept in the brotherhood of the Khalsa with the other misls, even after their whole misl was excommunicated expelled from the panth, they still rejoined the Khalsa and helped defeat the enemies! I don't see them trying to integrate with the rest of the panth in the ramgharia gurdwaras, not like Jassa Singh, obviously it's the elders who instil these mentalities, with some of the youngsters trying to connect back into sikhi!
    • Try get CBT - Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of talking therapy. It is a common treatment for a range of mental health problems. CBT teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems. It focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and actions. It can help overcome anxiety. In the UK you can self-refer to a professional service offering CBT therapy. I know a few people who have had this and it helped with their social anxiety.
