SikhSangat.com not fit for purpose?

Recommended Posts

I am a member of the Sikh community, and I have posted some threads. Some sangat do not understand my view, and consider banning me. Is this fair? The purpose of a forum, is for everyone to have their view. Also I have not sworn or abused anyone on this site, but only held up my views. Moderators need to consider this, and consider not being bias.

It's not that they are absurd, so much as, they all come across as having been written by someone who has an interest, but little knowledge of Sikhia. 

Because the site is targetted by trolls and fakes, it makes people wary of you as a poster.

I think they are. You're a troll aren't you.

I'm surprised you've been allowed to prattle on like you have.

the contradictions are only in your mind , a uniform and a rehit are not rituals, what makes something into a ritual is intention , if you lack any form of sikh mentality and desire to learn, improve and gain union to Akal Purakh then yes it would be considered an empty ritual without purpose . But fact is , no one should be considered a sikh if they are not actively engaged in the process of sikhi . Yes sikhi is a process .

As defined in the Sikh Rehat Maryada, a Sikh is someone who “faithfully believes” in God, the Ten Gurus, and the Guru Granth Sahib. 

So, mahandulai, are you a Sikh as defined in those terms? Are you someone born into a Sikh family but not a Sikh yourself? Are you not a Sikh at all? Are you a non-Sikh trying troll the forum? 

I believe you are a troll. Please present evidence to the contrary.

Mahan dulai you seem like a guy lost in various ideologies, I personally dont think your a troll. Maybe because you didn't come from a religious family that didnt teach you real sikhi from early age so your questioning stuff and trying to rationalise it in your mind now?

I would like to know your purpose of joining this site and what you hope to gain?

BTW it is good to question everything in terms of religion, but also to remember and respect your Sikh roots/heritage cos alot of shaheeds sacrificed their life and liberty throughout the ages to save sikhi so we should contemplate on why so many laid down their lives for this faith when they could have easily converted to others for an easier life.

bro in my eyes you're one of us and not a troll - saw you on Sikh channel at the fresher's fair last year so not doubting your credibility..

you seem very confident and you post in the same way about your views/observations - it's different and that's a good thing because we can all learn from each other..and you have made some fair points on this forum too..

but unfortunately for you, no-one will take them or you seriously anymore because you constantly question everything unnecessarily without even thinking or contemplating on other views/opinions/observations different from your own and this is what upsets people - it seems no answer is good enough for you - how can you not see this? are you aware on how people perceive you?

you're also wrong when you say you haven't abused anyone on here and now you're on quality control because you can't think before you post.. but don't worry..at least you haven't used disgusting foul language/swearing or preached to others what you don't practice yourself..

but you're not a lost cause yet..my advice to you is just learn to understand and think about what others are saying to you..you seem to be very stubborn and stuck in your own mind but sometimes you're not the only one (including myself) and people will appreciate posts with some understanding/ability to accept and reason..

    • No, this was different guy. He wasn't even a public figure. Funny thing with AKJs is the "Nervous Indian" didn't have to go through any public apology stuff and that was the worst! (If you don't know of the Nervous Indian thing, then you're lucky.)
    • Who resides in the Sangat ? Guru. So the Guru is sangat and the sangat is Guru. So would you not want to serve our Guru the best you can? So what if people come to the Gurdwara for the food, make the best and let them come. Have big hearts guys, Guru tha langar sabho awaay, let them come the house of Guru Nanak is open to all. Tell you what, you moaners why don't you cook up dhal and roti at home for a week you will soon get chittar. This is Guru ghar, let it be the best you can, make the best and serve the best and Guru ji will smile on you. What is wrong with the proliferation of Akahnd Paaths and Sukhmani sahibs, you think people were doing a sin ! Why shouldn't they do paaths at the gurdwara and why shouldn't you make the best langar you can? Everyone has sharda and everyone wants to make the best . Bar humbug to the lot of yer!   😀
    • Yes. Being intellektual means you are boring. Keneda particularly promotes this. They love the Larping that goes along with the rural life. 
    • Be mindful of quality educational institutions because it would encourage further exodus out of Punjab. It also depends on where you think educational institutions come from, what I mean by this whether it is public (government funded) or privately funded. There are plenty of privately funded colleges and universities. For example, there is Lovely University. This is privately funded. They have a huge campus built not far from Jalandhar.  You cannot have these educatonal facilities without having the jobs to go with it.
    • Well I had one relative (through marriage) from back home who was snatched up to do his MSc in Germany (something about auto-driving cars with BMW). When he finished that, he was snatched up by America (Texas to be specific) to do his PHd overthere, all he had to pay for was his ticket there and they have set him up with uni fees and accomodation. Another female relative in the same branch of the family just got a job in a Panjabi university as a Chemical Engineer lecturer, so things are happening.  Not enough in my opinion though. Says a lot that hordes of sons of relatively affluent pendu families back home aspire to come to the UK and become builders. There is an anti--intellectual culture back home. There is little to no culture of appreciating/developing gian for gian's sake - and it explains a lot of what we see.
