What was Guru Ji's rational behind the commandment Sikh daughters should only be given to Sikhs for marriage?


Recommended Posts

In one of the 52 commandments Guru Gobind Singh Ji left for the Sikhs he stated that a daughter of the Sikhs should only have her hand in marriage given to another Sikh family. But he did not say the same for Sikh sons for them only given to Sikhs for marriage. Why was this? 

This question is mainly for the liberal lefties to ponder on.

Because to majority of learned and right thinking Sikhs he is clearly showing us how there is a difference between the genders when it comes to procreation and relationships. Sikh Men are like rocks in the ground they will usually stick to their reiligion. And Guru Ji knows the condition of men of all backgrounds are that they are tribal so its a given that sons will not let the Sikh side down. But most women are like sheep they will be lead to whatever religion their partner is a believer in. So if they are married off to non-sikhs then she will become that non-sikh and her offsping 9/10 times will be non-sikhs. For a pularistic faith like Sikhi it is especially dangerous for our demographics sake that Sikh women are raised in the belief that they only want to marry a fellow Sikh believer.

We can see countless examples of non-abrahmic faith communities whose populations have been destroyed because they did not control their womens choice of partner. We can look at the kalaesh of northern pakistan who are almost extinct due to muslims converting their women and creating more muslims. We can see zoroesterian persians who had a huge mighty empire that used to invade other lands but now are no where to be found only small communities scattered around the world because muslims forced islam on them and bred with their women creating muslims only. 

Which is why we know muslims try their best to groom and convert kafir non-muslim women especially those who they view they are in war in to get 1 over the kufr. And if you ever seen a marriage between a girl from Sikh background to a non-sikh groom you will find most of the time the kids are born as non-sikhs. So there is no equality in nature & biology nor in Sikhi nor in most human soceities that want to exist and excel when it comes to relationships there are clear set out rules.

Akaal Purakh is not within the bounds of right and wrong. Everything is in his Hukam, yes. The Mool Mantar is the essence of Sikhi, that's also true. But you forgot about the last word in the Mool Man

In accordance with Authentic Puraatan Rehatname, men and women are both commanded to marry Sikhs. The Hukam applies to both genders.  A Sikh should marry a Sikh only. Bhai Gurdas Sahin Jio says "

Genie is right.  Puraatan Singhs who chose to make their homes outside the Punjab and were confronted with the immediate problem of a lack of Sikh women, would usually marry local girls and in do

Personally, I think it was a pragmatic idea to increase our numbers. That only happens if Sikhs marry Sikhs. Of course, there's going to be theological interpretations about what the hukam signified, but looking back at the era the hukam was established and the state of Sikh society at the time, it had to be a method of encouraging the growth of Sikh numbers.

It pretty bad on the Sikh family for not raising their daughters the right way and teaching them to have respect and love for their faith but either way a person is free to chose whom they want to marry but if a Sikh female is proud of her faith and proudly says she is a Sikh then as per sikh commandments and teachings and demographics sake she should actively only look for a Sikh guy, a fellow believer of her faith and believer of the Guru.

It is not easy for someone to find a suitable Sikh to marry in this day and age so the earlier a female is encouraged to find her Sikh soul mate the better it is for them rather than putting it off by sleeping around, having a career or doing some other activity that lessens her chance for finding a good Sikh husband and having enough time on their biological clock to bear offspring ( women over 30yr+ have fertility problems).

Numbers versus Gurmat!  Where is the logic in having large numbers of Sikhs if they are empty of Guru's Matt?  I am certain, Guru ji was not planning on having 'empties' in his panth, because he knew that empty vessels make the most noise.

Why not both?

Every single vowel, consonant, noun, pronoun, verb, adverb, adjective, preposition, conjunction, determiner and an interjection enunciated by the 10th Patshah should accepted as authentic.  No questions asked.

Acceptance should be there- yes but Contextualization/vichar is also important

These Sikh girls also tend not to target men from traditional, conservative and family-minded cultures like the Polish and E. Europeans, but blacks and Western Europeans whose values are very different from our own. 

This above is key. Absolute gold.

It's a shame that JKV has not commented as I think she has proved the exception.

She's a  example of a Sikh woman who has married a non-Sikh and I believe has brought up her children as Sikh.

Maybe more Sikh women should be like JKV.

Same here.  Only a  firmly well grounded Sabat Surat, kakaar wearing Sikh with head on their shoulders, dark brown eyes and hair, and high IQ with ancestoral roots in India will suffice.  Someone whose life is replete with sikhy. My future generations (posterity) are extremely important to me.  It is imperative they become good Sikhs and humans, nothing else matters.

 

 

I admire your resolution, how old are you?  Good luck.

aww what if you are like my dada ji who had ice blue eyes and reddish brown hair but pure punjabi ? according to your narrow criteria he wouldn't count or anyone like that, like my thaia ji or his eldest son , or grandson . Sikhi is from within not just without the whole picture is important including her/his family influences and personal views .

nobody needs more headcases Hehe ... honestly I did nothing just looked hard and passed the whole thing to Guru ji's hand I would have been content to be single and do sewa of panth ... if Guru ji had made it so . Angelo is more sikhi khial than your average person , a real family person who understood that being a sikh is a hard choice and doesn't let up on the kids if they try slacking . In his words 'they will be better christians as Gursikhs, because they will have structure and method to their spiritual life' . He understands our struggles in Punjab and the evil nature of GOI. He's been to Amritsar Harimandir Sahib , Dhubri Sahib , Assam , ChungThan , SIkkim he believes in Guru Sahiban .

    • Number of suspected modern slavery victims hits new record with more than 4,000 referred to Home Office between April and June this year, figures show From April to June, 4,171 potential victims of modern slavery were reported  The figure is the highest on record and a significant rise from that of last year  The rise has partly been driven by claims of slavery to avoid deportation     There are more victims of modern slavery in the UK than ever before, new figures show.  Between April and June, 4,171 potential victims of human trafficking, slavery or forced labour were reported to the Home Office.  The figure is the highest since records on modern slavery began in 2009.  It is also a rise of 10 per cent from the previous quarter and up a third from the same period in 2021. Figures show the highest number of child victims and 589 referrals involved county lines drugs gangs, also the highest number since records began. Overall, 14 per cent of referrals involved county lines, with three-quarters (446) of these concerning boys. The figures for suspected modern slavery victims have risen each year, excluding 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, 2,727 potential victims were identified - the highest annual figure since records began, when the number was 552. Of the potential victims, 54 per cent claimed exploitation as adults and 39% claimed exploitation as children. Some 43 per cent claimed their exploitation took place overseas, compared to 36 per cent in the previous three months. The vast majority, 79 per cent, of the suspected victims were male. The most commonly reported form of exploitation for adult victims was labour exploitation, 32%, while children were most often referred for criminal exploitation - 44%. Maya Esslemont, director of After Exploitation, a non-profit organisation, said the news: 'Could represent a loss of trust between survivors and the authorities, as the latter can no longer promise victims that they will be protected from deportation if they comply with an investigation.  'We are worried to see a rise in recorded modern slavery cases, at a time when the life circumstances of so many survivors seems uncertain. 'Since the Nationality and Borders Act was brought into force, survivors no longer have a "guarantee" of support even if they are recognised by the Home Office's own decision makers as victims. 'Today's figures show just how urgently this government needs to step up and address the long-term challenges facing each of the victims recognised as an NRM statistic.' Last year, almost 30,000 people were known to have crossed the channel in small boats to reach the UK - likely an underestimate. This was a huge rise from 2020 when just 8,400 made the crossing. The rising figures are likely driven by the rise in illegal immigrants claiming to be victims of modern slavery to avoid deportation. In 2020, almost one in six used the defence as victims of trafficking or modern slavery are protected through the National Referral Mechanism (NRM), a unit run by the Home Office. Claims doubled from 5,135 to 10,613 between 2017 and 2020. It was reported last year that those making the claim included Albanian gangs growing cannabis in the UK.  Albanians comprised the largest number of claims from foreign nationals in the last five years.  One case included Armelind Rexha, who appeared in court in 2019 charged with growing cannabis worth up to £672,000. A judge accepted his claim that he had been forced to do it after he cited the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Home Office minister Baroness Williams of Trafford said last year: ‘There are concerns about the potential for a referral to the NRM to be used to frustrate immigration enforcement processes to gain access to support inappropriately.  'There has been a growth in NRM referrals being made after a person enters immigration detention. ‘This raises legitimate concern that some referrals are being made late in the process to frustrate immigration action and that legitimate referrals are not being made in a timely way.’ The government has proposed to crack down on the use of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to block deportation and criminal prosecution. So far in 2022, over 13,000 migrants have crossed the English Channel and the total number for the year could double that of 2021. The surge in channel crossings has largely been fuelled by people-smuggling gangs helping migrants to make the dangerous journey across the Channel. According to the Home Office, 50 suspected criminal gang members were arrested last year in connection to small boat crossings.  The National Crime Agency (NCA) has also made several arrests this year connected to human trafficking as the number of Channel crossings continues to rise.  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11102361/Number-suspected-modern-slavery-victims-hits-new-record-4-000-April-June.html
    • You sound like an expert, I don't even know what that is. Plus bro, if you've grown up in the UK, you'd know that whatever its origins, bhangra has now pretty much become synonymous with being plastered at the same time.   
    • I don't think that is near contemporary, I'd guess the mid 1800s give or take a few decades either side.  And let's keep it real, the others which some believe are contemporary show Guru ji with an earring. Interesting image though, got any background to it?
