Is Sikhism really hijacked by Jattism ?

Recommended Posts

I remember a video went viral in 2010 or something in which an angry Dalit Buddhist/Sikh lady was seen giving angry speech in a funny punjabi accent, complaining about how Sikhism was hijacked by the same baahmanwaad that it aimed to eradicate. and how Sikhism was not really separate ideologically from Buddhism. She was perhaps a neo-buddhist and Ambedkar follower named Kamlesh Ahir.

Kamlesh Ahir's speech was mostly about woes of so-called low castes being denied active participation in indian religions. And how sikh gurus tried to revive Buddhas ideals of casteless society equal for all, but that Sikhism was failed by Sikhs themselves. I agree with her only partly!

In this video, the same lady (in funny frantic voice) is heard complaining about how Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar wanted to convert to sikhi along with his 5 million followers but was let down by Jatt-dominated Akalis who feared losing control of harmandar sahib. So as a result Ambedkar ji had to convert to Buddhism along with his followers and they also burnt manusmriti , a hindu text which is still celebrated by buddhists in india as "manusmriti dahan diwas". The lady also complained about how Sikhs don't want chamaars, Ravidasias , Valmiks and other downtrodden along with them , and as a consequent Sikhi is not really spread . 

(Khalsa college of mumbai of which I myself am an alumni is a really cool college founded by Babasaheb Ambedkar himself). So I will give her credit.

Anyways, coming to point , Is Sikhi really totally dominated by Jatts , esp when it comes to filling top clergical and administrative posts in SGPC gurudwaras ??

If so , its a really shame for our panth. We need to introspect deeply. We feel delighted at sight of white/black sikhs , then why we should feel hesitation to accept downtrodden low-castes of india who will benefit from sikhi the most.

 

You can hear her here (again I don't agree with her at times , and she sound really bullsshit sometimes, but she does make a point about casteism in sikhi) :

Caste in Punjab is an issue because of the Brahmin Elite that controls all institutions of India.  Taking ownership of a 'Brahmin' problem detracts the attention from the real culprits and architects of this menace.

We as Sikhs do not believe, practice or promote this 'Brahminical' system of apartheid.  However as the laws and and constitution of India refuse to outlaw or make these practises a criminal offence, the Punjab is always going to affected by this.  For example the reservation posts for 'scheduled casts' causes resentment amongst the so called higher casts who may well be poorer in some cases and the 'scheduled cast' status is something lower casts are more than happy to embrace for certain benefits. 
A better system would be a 'means' based benefits system which would be there for anyone who is financially disadvantaged.  This could not happen in 'India' as this would threaten the grip 'Brahmins' have over society.
The only way cast discrimination can be eradicated from Sikh institutions and the mindset of so called Sikhs is to bind them by law, provide religious education and give them a fair society which benefits all.  Neither of these are allowed to flourish in India controlled Punjab.
 
So in short if you want to fix the problems for Sikhs in Punjab then 'Independence' is the only way we can truly create a society which is governed by the teachings 'Sri Guru Granth Sahib Maharaj'.  Bound by constitution and implemented through law.

Human beings like many other species are organised into hierarchies. 

The caste system is a hierarchy, you can destroy this hierarchy but it will be replaced by another hierarchy. 

Humans have always discriminated amongst each other for various reasons.If it is not based on caste it will be something else. 

There is a phemenon happening with Gurdwarae I hear from relatives in California.

Gurdwarae aren't based in commitees where one is Jatts dominated or Tharkhan dominated. 

They are seperated by what is happening locally. There are different gurdwarae based on if you are a "trucker" or a "doctor".

This is what our enemies want us to talk about and being busy in such issues so that they can do their job of eliminating our history, language, culture and religion. In my opinion, If the OP who started this thread, if he is not jatt then he believes in caste things.

I consider myself sikh only. If you insist on knowing my "caste", we're kumiyar (potters). But it doesn't matter me anyways because our guru disregards such things . I don't believe in caste things . Don't know what suggested you otherwise. i am also against swinging the pendulum far other side and becoming jatt-phobic . Let us all become a casteless society. It would be biggest legacy for our gurus.

You said brahmins have created the current reservation order in india ! 

Infact brahmans despise it the most ! Because the current reservation policy is totally against upper castes, including brahmans . 

Let us first admit we have failed . I don't want to beat dead our community over this but considering how good sikhi is in theory but still lagging a little behind in practice. Although we still have good elements like langar , open gurudwaras for all and so on . We just need to move a little further . 

Thanks

    • West Midlands police officer, 22, admits grooming a vulnerable 13-year-old girl online before abducting and sexually assaulting her Former PC Haider Siddique, 22, from West Midlands Police, met a victim online He groomed her for sexual purposes while claiming to be offering her support     A former police officer has admitted grooming, abducting and sexually assaulting a vulnerable 13-year-old girl while he was on duty. Haider Siddique, who was with West Midlands Police, met his victim online and groomed her for sexual purposes while claiming to be offering her support, the force said. The 22-year-old admitted the offences at Birmingham Crown Court today, as well as a charge of inciting a child to commit a sex act.   PC Haider Siddique, 22, who served with West Midlands Police, met his victim online and groomed her for sexual purposes while claiming to be offering her support     The sharp-eyed and conscientious driver then alerted the force to what they had seen on the bus, leading to an investigation and identification of the victim. Siddique had joined the force as a student officer in August 2021, before going on long-term sick leave in November that year. The force said he had never been deployed in an operational role. Mark Brookes, prosecuting, told the court: 'At the time of these offences Siddique was a serving student police officer. It involved a period in March 2022. She was 13 and he was 21. She was a child and is still of course a child. 'It is the prosecution case during that month she was abducted by him and on two separate occasions he had sex with the complainant.' Mr Brookes said on one occasion, during that period, Siddique and the victim had gone to Stechford police station together when the girl made a complaint about her mother disciplining her.   Speaking after today's hearing, Deputy Chief Constable Vanessa Jardine from West Midlands Police said: 'This was a sickening criminal act by a former student officer, who appeared to be offering support to this vulnerable young girl but was in fact grooming her sexually'     A bus driver based at the Perry Barr depot saw the girl and the defendant get on his bus on March 21 last year, the court heard. Mr Brookes said: 'He recognised the girl. The driver showed the driver what he believed to be a police warrant card.' Mr Brookes said during the journey the driver looked in the mirror and could see the two of them sitting on the same seat. 'He could see him touch her back and they looked close. 'He thinks they kissed goodbye. The complainant got off at her stop and he was so concerned he reported it to the police. It appeared strange, it appeared to be weird.' Mr Brookes said the girl's mother told police that, in the previous few months, her daughter's behaviour had changed from being friendly to 'swearing and saying horrible things'. He said she had also received a number of WhatsApp messages sent by Siddique, who was posing as one of the girl's friend's mothers asking if she could stay out. Police searched the victim's bedroom and recovered some of her clothing. It was later tested and mixed DNA, to which Siddique could have contributed, was found. Speaking after today's hearing, Deputy Chief Constable Vanessa Jardine said: 'This was a sickening criminal act by a former student officer, who appeared to be offering support to this vulnerable young girl but was in fact grooming her sexually.' She said the force had conducted a 'robust and meticulous' investigation, and is 'committed to rooting out any member of staff who engages in criminality'. The senior officer said Siddique's crimes had 'significantly impacted' on his victim, adding colleagues would be 'repulsed by his behaviour'. Siddique resigned while in custody, after his arrest, and will be sentenced on March 3.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11697965/West-Midlands-Police-officer-22-admits-sexually-assaulting-vulnerable-13-year-old-girl.html

    • Empirical evidence suggests that any effort by a member of the older generation to live according to Sikhi has zero impact on the younger generation keeping their kesh. For example, consider the 1960s Wolverhampton bus driver who was not allowed to do his job after he started keeping his kesh. That incident sparked protests. But a generation later, it is not enough to inspire his son to keep his kesh. And then we can go beyond that and consider descendants of Sikh shaheeds or even descendants of our Gurus!

    • Even if alcohol is completely banned and no Hindus, Sikhs, or Muslims drink alcohol in Punjab, this slavery would still exist because of profits and maya; we need to give punishments for slavers.
