On a serious note, coincidentally I wrote this today morning and another Singh advised me to post it on the forum, but I refused saying ਛੱਡ ਯਾਰ ਇਥੇ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਿਸੀ ਦੇ ਪੱਲੇ ਗੱਲ ਪੈਣੀ, however parts of it are relevant to your question.

ਜੇਕਰ ਆਪਣੇ ਲੋੱਕਾਂ ਨੇ ਥੋੜਾ ਜਿਹਾ ਵੀ ਸਹਿਜ, ਥੋੜਾ ਜਿਹਾ ਵੀ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਵਰਤਿਆ ਹੁੰਦਾ, ਤਾਂ ਅੱਜ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਦੀ ਧਰਤੀ ਤੇ ਦੂਜਾ ਕੋਈ ਧਰਮ ਨਹੀਂ ਸੀ ਹੋਣਾ, ਸਗੋਂ ਸਿਰਫ ਸਿਖ ਹੋਣੇ ਸੀ | ਇਸਲਾਮ ਜੋਰ-ਜਬਰ ਨਾਲ ਫੈਲਿਆ, ਸਿਖੀ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਤੇ ਸਹਿਜ ਨਾਲ ਬਹੁਤ ਲੋੱਕਾਂ ਤਕ ਪਹੁੰਚਾਈ ਜਾ ਸਕਦੀ ਸੀ, ਪਰ ਅਫਸੋਸ, ਨਾ ਸਾਡੇ ਆਗੂਆਂ ਨੂ ਇਹ ਗਲ ਸਮਝ ਲੱਗੀ, ਤੇ ਨਾ ਹੀ ਆਮ ਜਨਤਾ ਨੂ | ਜਦੋਂ ਤੁਸੀਂ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਗੱਲ ਸ਼ੁਰੂ ਹੀ ਕਿਸੀ ਦੇ ਅਪਮਾਨ ਨਾਲ ਕਰਨੀ ਹੈ, "ਸਾਲਿਓ, ਭੁੱਲ ਗਏ ਕਿਵੇਂ ਤੁਹਾਡੀਆਂ ਜਨਾਨੀਆਂ ਬਚਾ ਕੇ ਲਿਓੰਦੇ ਰਹੇ ਹਾਂ ਅਸੀਂ ਮੁਸਲਮਾਨਾਂ ਤੋਂ ?", ਤਾਂ ਕੀ ਤੁਹਾਨੂ ਲੱਗਦਾ ਅਗਲਾ ਬੰਦਾ ਸਿਖੀ ਵਲ ਆਉਣ ਨੂ ਪ੍ਰੇਰਿਤ ਹੋਵੇਗਾ?

ਸ਼ਾਇਦ ਮੈਂ ਕਾਫੀ ਹੱਧ ਤਕ ਗਲਤ ਹੀ ਹੋਵਾਂ, ਹੋ ਸਕਦਾ ਮੇਰਾ ਇਹ ਸੋਚਣ ਦਾ ਤਰੀਕਾ ਵੀ ਗਲਤ ਹੋਵੇ, ਪਰ ਮੈਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਜੀਵਨ ਵਿਚ ਬਥੇਰੇ ਇਹਜੇ ਪੰਜਾਬੀ ਹਿੰਦੂ ਵੇਖੇ ਨੇ, ਜਿਹਨਾ ਨੂ ਜੇ ਥੋੜਾ ਜਿਹਾ ਵੀ ਪਿਆਰ ਨਾਲ ਸਮਝਾਇਆ ਜਾਵੇ ਤਾਂ ਓਹ ਬੜੀ ਛੇਤੀ ਸਿਖੀ ਵਲ ਆਉਣ ਨੂ ਤਿਆਰ ਹੋ ਸਕਦੇ ਹਨ | ਹਾਂ, ਇਹਜੇ ਲੋਕ ਜਿਆਦਾ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੁੰਦੇ, ਪਰ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਜਰੂਰ ਨੇ |

ਧੰਨ ਨੇ ਸਾਡੇ ਓਹ ਸਿਖ, ਜੋ ਆਪ ਤਾਂ ਗੁਰਮਤ ਦੀ ਰਾਹ ਤੇ ਚਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਸਕਦੇ, ਆਪ ਤਾਂ ਵਹਿਮਾਂ-ਭਰਮਾਂ ਨੂ ਛੱਡ ਨਹੀਂ ਸਕਦੇ, ਨਾ ਮੰਦਿਰ ਜਾਣਾ ਛੱਡ ਸਕਦੇ ਨੇ, ਨਾ ਹੀ ਦਰਗਾਹਾਂ ਤੇ ਮਥੇ ਟੇਕਣਾ, ਤੇ ਨਾਲ ਦੀ ਨਾਲ ਨਾ ਹੀ ਕਿਸੀ ਨੂ ਸਿਖੀ ਵਲ ਆਉਣ ਵਾਸਤੇ ਪ੍ਰੇਰਿਤ ਕਰ ਸਕਦੇ ਨੇ, ਹਾਂ ਮੌੱਕਾ ਮਿਲਣ ਤੇ ਅਗਲੇ ਨੂ ਜਲੀਲ ਜਰੂਰ ਕਰ ਸਕਦੇ ਨੇ , "ਸਾਲਿਓ, ਭੁੱਲ ਗਏ ਤੁਹਾਡੇ ਜੰਜੂ ਅਸੀਂ ਬਚਾਏ ਨੇ!", ਅਗਲਾ ਅੱਗਿਓਂ ਪੁਛ ਲਏ "ਸਰਦਾਰ ਜੀ, ਸਾਡੇ ਤਾਂ ਜੰਜੂ ਬਚਾ ਲਏ, ਹੁਣ ਆਪ ਤੁਸੀਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਗੁੱਟ ਤੇ ਆਹ ਧਾਗੇ ਤਬੀਤ ਕਿਹੜੇ ਬੰਨੀ ਫਿਰਦੇ ਹੋ?", ਤਾਂ ਕੀ ਜਵਾਬ ਹੈ ਸਾਡੇ ਕੋਲ?

ਯਾਦ ਰਖੋ, ਜੇ ਅੱਜ ਸਾਡੀ ਗਿਣਤੀ ਘੱਟ ਹੈ, ਤਾਂ ਇਹ ਦੋਸ਼ ਕਿਸੀ ਹੱਧ ਤਕ ਸਾਨੂ ਆਪ ਵੀ ਕਬੂਲ ਕਰਨਾ ਪਵੇਗਾ | ਅਸੀਂ ਗੁਰੂ ਸਾਹਿਬਾਨਾਂ ਦੀਆਂ ਸਿਖਿਆਵਾਂ ਦੁਨਿਆ ਤਕ ਪਹੁੰਚਾਉਣ ਵਿਚ ਨਾਕਾਮਿਆਬ ਰਹੇ ਹਾਂ | ਅਸੀਂ ਹੋਰ ਧਰਮਾਂ ਦੇ ਜਿਗ੍ਯਾਸੁ ਤੇ ਸ਼ਰਧਾਲੂ ਲੋੱਕਾਂ ਨੂ ਵੀ ਸਿਖੀ ਵਲ ਲਿਓਣ ਵਿਚ ਅਸਫਲ ਰਹੇ ਹਾਂ | ਅੱਜ ਸਾਡੇ ਕੁਛ ਲੋੱਕਾਂ ਦੀਆਂ ਕਰਤੂਤਾਂ ਵੇਖ ਕੇ ਦੁਨਿਆ ਮਿੰਟ ਨਹੀਂ ਲਾਉਂਦੀ ਕਹਿਣ ਨੂ "ਤੁਸੀਂ ਤਾਂ ਬੜਾ ਗੱਜ ਕੇ ਕਹਿੰਦੇ ਸੀ ਕੀ ਸਿਖ ਇੱਕ ਵਖਰੀ ਕੌਮ ਹੈ, ਪਰ ਇਹ ਤਾਂ ਸਾਰੇ ਕੰਮ ਹਿੰਦੁਆਂ-ਮੁਸਲਮਾਨਾਂ ਵਾਲੇ ਕਰ ਰਹੇ ਨੇ!"

ਹੁਣ ਦੱਸੋ, ਮੇਰੇ ਵਰਗੇ ਕੋਲ ਕੀ ਜਵਾਬ ਹੈ ਓਹਨਾ ਵਾਸਤੇ? ਓਹ ਜਿਹੜੇ ਸਿਖੀ ਵਲ ਆਉਣ ਦੀ ਇਛਾ ਰਖਦੇ ਨੇ, ਪਰ ਜਲੀਲ ਕੀਤੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਨੇ, ਓਹ ਜਿਹੜੇ ਸਿਖੀ ਧਾਰਨ ਕਰਨਾ ਚਾਉਂਦੇ ਨੇ ਪਰ ਆਪ ਕਨਫਿਉਜ਼ ਹੋ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਨੇ ਸਾਡੇ ਲੋੱਕਾਂ ਦੇ ਮਨਮਤ ਭਰੇ ਜੀਵਨ ਵੇਖ ਕੇ, ਕੀ ਜਵਾਬ ਹੈ ਓਹਨਾ ਵਾਸਤੇ?

North Indian region are worst in human nature if compared with south.

Punjabi hindus are the worst because of arya samaji mentality.

I agree Punjabi Hindus are real haters . I have spent lot of time with Hindus from different regions and i have observe that Punjabi Hindus are real culprit .

Those who knows Hindu will agree with me that these Punjabi Hindus are back stabbers , rude, arrogant and money minded people . Its difficult to understand why they do that . Some of my friends are from Uttar Pradesh belongs to Kaisth caste . They always say that favourite topic of punjabi Hindus is to talk <banned word filter activated> against Sikhs .

And how many have you ever tried talking to about Sikhi or Sikh history? How many have you put to shame each time they cracked a Sardar joke? How many noses have you broken each time they made fun of your dastar (if you wear one that is)?Or do you just come online and vent your frustration instead of dealing head on with real people? Trust me, its not that hard. Once you start you can filter out the good and the bad. Few among the good might come into the fold of the Khalsa as well.

I can speak from personal experience as I know Punjabi Hindus more closely than any of you guys ever will (and you guys know very well how and why). A good number of them carry all the traits listed above, no doubt about that. Yes they are arrogant, disrespectful (especially the Delhi breed), and don't care about anyone getting offended. But the point I am trying to make is very simple. If you want more people coming into Sikhi, you have to be the one to initiate the discussion with compassion and without humiliating someone for who/what he/she is. If the guy doesn't get it, feel free to beat the lights out of him. But atleast take your chances by trying to speak out the truth. Again, based on personal experience, 8 out of 10 won't give a damn, but I'd still take my chances with those 2 who would be willing to listen. Perhaps those 2 will end up as better GurSikhs than the ones who have unfortunately become leaders of the qaum.

Guru Sahib changed people like Sajjan Thug, like Kauda Rakshash. A number of Muslims who came to fight Guru Sahib ended up at His feet. Brahmins who came seeking refuge (Pandit Kirpa Ram), and those who acted out of sheer arrogance (Lal Chand Peshauria), all ended up becoming not just Singhs but Shaheeds. How did Guru Sahib do this? Through compassion!

We claim to be Sikhs of such a Guru but cannot take down a few arrogant low lives? Next time, for a change, try using the compassion weapon first, whether its a Hindu or Muslim, or anyone. If they still disrespect Sikhi, then make sure they don't go back in one piece. Stop listening to someone who tells you "falaane folks do this". The same happens to our own folks as well. Indians talk cr@p about Sikhs to goray, should goray buy all that is said to them? Or do they find out on their own?

Anyways, its your life and your opinion. You can try to win someone using the power of Gurbani, Sikh itihaas and philosophy, or you can humiliate them and further them farther away from Sikhi. Choice is yours.

Your purpose might be to hate them back because they hate Sikhs, my purpose is to have more such people as shown below. A Hindu boy originally from Bihar and grew up in Punjab ended up becoming a Singh.

1460952_771014686290094_1145926176969713

PHILLAUR, Punjab (January 25, 2014)—Recently, in the Village of Phillaur, Khera, at Gurwara Shaheeda Singhan there was a turban tying competition. The centre of attention was a 16 year old amritdhari contestant who had converted to Suraj Singh from Suraj Kumar.

Many at the competition were shocked at the story he narrated about his conversion to Sikhi. His story raised concerns on the inner workings of the Sikhs’ top governing body, the SGPC , which works for the welfare of Sikhs and whose budget is more than that of the regional government.

Suraj Singh said at Gurwara Shaheeda Singhan, that he and his mother sacrificed a lot for him to receive Amrit baptism, wherein his father divorced his mother and also left them homeless. Not only this, after the incident, no one amongst his relatives talks to them. He said his family looks at him with scorn.

Suraj Singh, is the son of Satan Bhagat, resident of Lallu Nagar, District Kathiar, Bihar Hall, who is now residing at Punjab Village, Khanori. When he was 6 months old, his family came to Punjab to earn a living as laborers. When he grew up, he was sent to the government school of Khanori.

When he was older, one of the students gifted him the biography of Guru Gobind Singh. After reading it, he was so inspired, that he decided to become a Sikh of the Guru. During this time, he stopped trimming his hair. Due to poverty, his parents did not take things seriously and meanwhile his grandmother passed away. Due to this, Suraj was surrounded by many hardships because according to their custom, if anyone in the family dies, all boys of the house have to trim their hair—a custom against Sikh values.

Initially, Suraj revolted against this, but when nobody in his family supported him, he ran away from home and hid at a Gurdwara Sahib in Khloti. To abide by the custom, the family kept on searching for Suraj Singh before his grandmother’s cremation, but they could not find him for 2 months. When they found him after 2 months, he had received Amrit and was Suraj Singh now.

Suraj Singh’s mother is a laborer in the village to earn a living for both of them. Only Suraj Singh’s classmate Jaskaran Singh, and another villager, Gurdeep Singh have helped them.

Reports from locals say that Suraj Singh was taken to SGPC President Avtar Makkar to seek help but he was turned away immediately. Suraj Singh did not get turned off from Sikhi after this incident, but rather he is studying and spreading the word about Sikhism in different villages—he is becoming an example for Sikhs.

Suraj Singh said that in today’s modern world boys from the Sikh community consider turban and long hair out of style—they trim their hair and use tobacco and other intoxicating substances. He feels that Sikh youth should consider their religion the best. By looking at Suraj Singh’s love and passion for the religion, NRI Satnam Singh Khera from Canada, awarded him a cash prize.

And trust me, this is where it hurts those Sikh haters the most!

Reports from locals say that Suraj Singh was taken to SGPC President Avtar Makkar to seek help but he was turned away immediately.

Well done SGPC!

This is what our "leaders" are doing

SGPC let me down, says Tamil Sikh

Indian Express - 31 October 2000

SGPC let me down, says Tamil Sikh

AMRITSAR, OCT 30: Kandasamy Singh, a Tamil who adopted the Sikh faith is running from pillar to post to collect his dues standing against Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC). He was appointed a parcharak (religious preacher) by the former president of the SGPC, Gurcharan Singh Tohra. He said that when he went to the SGPC office today, the officials refused to talk to him saying the president who appointed him had been changed and his name had been deleted from the list.

Kandasamy who lodged a written complaint with the SGPC president and sent a copy to the secretary, said that he was astonished to see the behaviour of the SGPC officials.``I was appointed parcharak by Tohra who asked me to propagate the tenets of Sikhism in the distant land of Tamils. I organised various Guru Ka Langars in the rural areas and also operated a mobile library in Marai Malai Nagar in Tamil Nadu but I was told today that my name had been deleted because the president had been changed,'' he said.

He further disclosed that he was influenced by Sikhism and adopted the religion in 1996 when he came to see his brother in Delhi who was a tailor in Karol Bagh."I was eager to visit the Golden Temple and came here in 1998. I met Tohra who was so impressed with my conviction that he asked me if I could take up the task of teaching Sikhism in my native state. I accepted his offer and even underwent training in the Gurudwara here and at Chandigarh,'' he said.

He further said that Tohra promised to give him Rs 4000 per month for the expenditure on various promotional activities. "But I was so engrossed with the propagation work that I never demanded any money and today when I approached the secretary of SGPC, Gurbachan Singh Bachan, he refused to talk to me. When I approached the officials of Dharam Parchar Committee (DPC) they embarrassed me by saying they do not know English and I should talk to them in Punjabi instead,'' he said.

He said that he was going to meet Simranjeet Singh Mann at his village tomorrow and would also lodge a complaint with the Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.

"I am an advocate by profession and was delighted to adopt the Sikh way of life but the attitude of the SGPC and of the DPC was astonishing. Instead of rewarding me for my translation of Sikh history into Tamil I was meted out humiliating treatment in the committee office,'' he said.

When Contacted Gurbachan Singh Bachan, Secretary, SGPC, said that he did not remember meeting Kandasamy Singh but he would definitely go through the complaint letter written to the president.

"It is wrong to say that he was meted out such treatment because he was appointed by a former president. There is more than 90 per cent of the preachers appointed by Tohra and it did not mean that we would treat them discriminately. I would personally look into the matter and his grievances would be redressed,'' said Bachan.

The conversion to Sikh religion made a radical change and possible implications in socio-political realm along with other developments such as Vaikom Movement and Temple Entry Movements. Thus, on 12th November 1936, the Maharaja of Travancore, Sri Chitra Tirunal issued a proclamation that all the roads, tanks, wells, and schools of Travancore state were opened to all classes irrespective of caste. This declaration is called as ‘Temple Entry Proclamation'.

The Malayala Manorama newspaper reported that immediately after the Temple Entry Proclamation, the Malayalees who converted to Sikh religion lost their interest in the new religion and reconverted into Hindu religious fold. However, only five or six families in Kerala vehemently stood for the new faith. Thus, people like Bhubender Singh, Karthar Singh, Kripal Singh, Renjith Singh and Bhagawan Singh stood firmly in the Sikh fold. They lived and dressed like Sikhs in the society. They followed the rules and regulations of the Sikh Panth.

Swami Ram Tirath Dandi Sanyasi (aka Ram Tirath Singh)(31 August 1897 - 12 May 1977) was born in Brahmin family at Tohra village in Patiala, Punjab India.

Swami Ram Tirath was a very famous scholar on Hindu culture and religion. He once studied the Sikh scriptures and was so inspired that he himself became a Sikh. He wrote a book entitled, "Sarvotam Dharam Granth - Siri Guru Granth Sahib te Sarvotam Dharam - Khalsa Panth", meaning the best scripture is Guru Granth Sahib ji and the best religion is the Khalsa Panth. Later in life he got baptised into the Sikh faith.

" After having studied the scriptures, in many respects I have discarded the Vedas, Shastras, Smiritis, all Sutras, Tantras and Puranas, knowing them to be polluted and corrupted by many impurities. I have found that only the Holy Guru Granth Sahib is completely free of contamination and knowing it to be benevolent for the whole humanity, I have accepted this scripture and I accept myself to be the Sikh of Guru Nanak Dev, therefore I am a Sikh of the Guru."
