look if you guys are going to drag religion into whether or not people deserve saving , I will bring up Gursikhs who do the right thing no matter the personal cost because we do as sikhs should do , not what society thinks we should do .
Do you honestly expect me to give you a spiritual, historical, and sociological breakdown of the difference between then and now, as if you don't already know. So why are you playing the hatchling? Does Gurbani tell us to bury our head in the sand and never heed lessons from past experiences and history? How do YOU reconcile the hukamnama or bachan where Guru Sahib says never trust a "Turk" with what they instructed in the situation you're basing your argument upon? So there's caveats? Who decides when to trust a Turk and when not to?
Didn't Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji know gangu was a snake? Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib ji punished chandu Shah, gangu's religious brother (both were hindu), for the shaheedi of Sri Guru Arjun Dev ji.
@genie what does it matter if the hindu pandits asked for help? When chandu Shah, the religious brother of the Kashmiri pandits, had set up the shaheedi of Sri Guru Arjun Dev ji. Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib ji should have known, his Sikhs are out numbered and they need a soorma, like Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib ji. After all he didn't receive this name for no reason. But this not what happened. Guru Sahib gave his head basically for an enemy of the past and future.
@MisterrSingh it's no fantasy world. Even when bhai kanhaiya ji was giving water to the enemy on the battlefield, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji was out numbered. Even when the Singh were rescuing hindu women from brothels, they were out numbered and still helped the people of a religion that will fight them in the next hour. The Sikhs have been always out numbered. But from the first Guru to the 11th, the Sikhs have put their neck on the line to help innocent people being mistreated or killed. In 1984 genocide of Sikhs in dehli after the assassination of indra Gandhi, very few hindu families helped by saving Sikh lives. Even the famous Sant Jarnail Singh ji Khalsa Bhindranwale said in an discussion with a hindu, he would do whatever it takes to help child being murdered. Sant ji will only accept it as God's will if, after trying to break free, he could not, then its God's hukam.
the particular girl had been tagged by the family who kidnapped her years before when she was 12 so let's not try to make fake connections . The girl's kidnapping happened before Langha opened , before Kashmir curfew before we rescued any girl or boy . That is the truth . The individual family were scum , that's why the brother tried to incite stoning of Nankana Sahib. He was arrested and done for terrorism.
Since when do we do things which are good only for reward? where's the nishkam sewa ? Didn't realise compassion had a price tag ...
