Why So Much False Information About Sikhi?

Recommended Posts

Guest Jacfsing2

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Recently I was seeing something related to Sikhi, just to see what many people actually thought, and I noticed a lot of false information about Sikhs in general, (especially some of whom called themselves Sikhs), a lot of it had to do with Hinduism surprisingly. Why is education for Sikhi this awful? (Do the Pracharks in India not do anything?) Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Examples?

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Look-up any article by a Hindu elitist or a lost Sikh about Sant Jarnail Singh Bhinderwale Ji, and you'd easily realize the bias of false information. (Not a normal Hindu, and hopefully Guru Sahib can overlook the Sikh person's mistake) Many Sikhs believe all religions are equal, (Mistakes from equality of humanity for humanity of religions); some Sikhs believe in the fact that all Sikhi is about is being nice, (which is still an important trait), and that simply being nice will help you. Some of them believe Amrit Vela is unnecessary and useless; while others don't know the benefits of Naam Jaapna. And finally, we have the idea that the 15 BHAGATS were Hindus and Muslims, despite them not doing anything related of the sort. (Bhagat Ramanand and Bhagat Jaidev for example never claimed his caste was superior to others and promoted equality, while Bhagat Farid didn't go and follow the pilgrimage to Mecca, and Bhagat Sadhna became Anti-Halal because Halal didn't have Daya). Basically it's a whole group of things, and sometimes these things are preached by the pracharks, Vaheguru forgive them (Bhul Chul Maaf for if I said anything wrong).

It is quite complex to highlight those occasionally subtle differences without becoming lost in semantics. I just think it's a culture of laziness at times. Some of it might also be mischief making in order to undermine Sikhi. Ultimately, it's the job of Sikhs to get that information out there and ensure it's accurate and verifiable, because if we don't do that, then others with agendas will come along.

Even if they did, no one will take them seriously.

There seems to be this imbecility of sorts that all faiths are equal. Blatant rubbish is what this belief is. Humanity is equal, not faiths. Faiths are ideological convictions and some, read Hinduism and Islam, are inhumane and greatly detrimental to the progress of humanitarian values.

There was this really daft ignorant liberal girl who made this picture of guru nanak dev ji with the status caption "before becoming hindu, muslim sikh become human first" and attributed it to guru ji. When in actual fact there is no such quote from Guru ji and the word 'sikh' would have been used in that context anyways because Guru J's followers were known as Sikhs after him and he didnt use that word himself.

I assume you mean the misconception that Sikhi is some sort of amalgamation of Hinduism and Islam.

Hindus today want to market their religion as one of peace and acceptance to pretentious white people by pretending that it is centered around Yoga and Ayurveda, and not casteism [RACISM], sexism and obsessive, pointless rituals. Given that one of the whole points of the very creation of Sikhi was to repudiate these evils at the heart of Hinduism, our existence is somewhat of a threat to their hippy-dippy PR campaign to change the face of their religion, so they try to undermine us by spreading lies.

Hinduism is like that obnoxious high schooler who decides to reinvent himself as a 'cool' kid when he goes to university. The time comes and he moves into his university dorms, eager to impress people with his sophisticated fake personality. But he's horrified when he sees a former schoolmate of his, Sikhi, is also at this university. Sikhi tells everyone some stories from back in the day about what Hinduism is really like, and his plan comes to nothing. Hinduism decides to get revenge by spreading rumours and chatting a load of sh1t against Sikhi, because even though Hinduism is much bigger than Sikhi, he is also a huge coward.

thinking on it , if their heroes and examples are from the mentality of abandoning sach to win on the temporary stage of the Earth what more can we expect ? You can only be as good as your Guru's guidance leads you

This is only so, because, no two Sikhs agree with each other as to the definition of a Sikh! Everyone thinks they know more than the 'other.' You know what they say, too many chefs spoil the broth!! This is exactly what the Sikh kyom is suffering from, too many chefs ..,..,!

    • What you see in kaleh is what happens when for decades there is no father figure in the home. Decades of fatherless children brought up by their grandmothers ( you will notice they are always brought up by their grandmothers,  their mothers are nowhere to be seen).    
    • The African American or even Afro-Caribbean have almost been bred to be physically stronger due several hundred years of slavery.  If you think about it, only the strongest and most resilient survived those slave ships across the Atlantic.  The hard physical work on those plantations have meant that they have passed down those genes through the generations.  The African origin black people in the Americans are also no longer pure black African.  There is plenty of European slave master blood in them after the slave women were taken and raped by their slave masters. This is the reason why they come in all shades of colour. You can tell the difference between black people of Africa and those from the Caribbean particularly in the UK. The diet that developed amongst the black communities of the Americas is based on the quality of food from the slave days. It was also foods not desired by the whites or food that was cheap like Chicken.  Ironically, like us folk from South Asia, the Afro Caribbeans and African Americans also suffer from high rates of diabetes and high blood pressure.
    • The overlooked or sometimes conveniently ignored aspect of their physiology is their diet, i.e. chicken and meat in general. I'm not being funny or stereotyping, but black people LOVE their chicken. Obviously, inhaling chicken all day and sitting on your behind playing video games is going to cause obesity in everyone, black or not, but certain foods coupled with an active lifestyle and perhaps a genetic predisposition to building and retaining muscle better than other races, also plays a factor. Testosterone (in natural) animal products is key. As a lifelong vegetarian I'm content and secure enough in my beliefs to acknowledge this truth. 
    • Bumping this up. Am thinking myself of moving from the UK to somewhere in North America as there is more land/open spaces, and some places a lot better weather (I dislike winters in UK).  And, weather can have a big impact on mood unless you are a complete Chardhi kala person. 
    • The youngsters themselves find themselves between a rock and a hard place. When they're growing up and perhaps vaguely aware of their fruity inclinations, it's a case of, "Why are you not in saroop?" from the religiously minded in their community. They then adopt the appearance partially through pressure and perhaps in the hope it somehow eliminates their leanings through some form of divine benevolence. When that doesn't happen and those proclivities increase with age, they find themselves exposed to incessant propaganda originating from their western host communities or the global propaganda machine which encourages them to embrace and accept their feelings, and at the same time people like us lambast them with stuff such as, "Why are you in saroop?!?" It's a no-win situation for them. Of course, I'm not seeking to excuse the degeneracy and the subversion taking place, but I just wish some of these people stepped outside of their own shoes for once, and realised how they're being used as pawns to further agendas that ultimately don't care for the individual. Humans have a desire to belong, and if they've spent most of their lives feeling alienated and misunderstood, they're obviously going to leap at the first group who extends a hand of understanding and tolerance. Most people are incapable or just aren't ready to accept or process anything beyond the material. That's life.
