Kissing in public

Recommended Posts

What's your view on sikhs kissing in public? Is it acceptable or not?  Is there anything in sikhi which indicates it's wrong to do that?

I personally wouldn't do that, iv had a traditional upbringing and that the way I am. 

But is it right or wrong?

Why do we need everything spelled out for us? 

If, hypothetically, someone unearthed a previously undiscovered hukamnama that stated Sikhs could kiss in public, would you begin doing it? 

These questions are a clear sign of someone who hasn't listened to, read, or even understood, even in the most superficial manner, anything about the Sikh faith. It's Muslim levels of morality and Sharia. Youth and inexperience is no excuse. This kind of stuff should be ingrained.

Lol paji I would never do that. Even if I see someone doing that in public I find it gross.

But some sikhs don't have it ingrained in their head. A few years back we were watching our cousins wedding DVD from Canada and he started kissing his wife's neck and naked shoulders at the reception party while having their first dance. It was very uncomfortable viewing! 

So for some sikhs it seems it's no problem to do that it public.

Puzzled Bai ji, there are lots of things in this world which are nowhere written but still considered as good or bad etiquettes. These etiquettes change from community to community. For example: Sharing a glass of wine with your dad is considered as a bad etiquettes in punjab but gorey enjoy having drink with their kids. Similarly, in our culture and manners, we consider intimacy and eating habits not to disclose to anyone but in western societies , they do it well openly.  

So there is no one word answer to you question as quick Right or Wrong.

With something like that one's first thought shouldn't be, "Evil Sikh! He's going against our religious principles!" A mature individual would view someone such as your cousin as someone who's ignorant of even polite cultural norms, because believe it or not there are many adherents of cultures -- western AND eastern -- that do not look favourably upon public displays of affection regardless of the occasion. 

But then why would you assume there's some hidden passage or line in Sikhi that endorses such behaviour? Is your cousin an authority or notable Sikh personality, whereby his behaviour is something to be measured against our dharam's norms, lol?

It depends on the cultural thing... Nothing is wrong or right..

Self-restraint is important in Sikhi, as is modesty. Kissing in public would go against both of those principles. 

plus the fact that engaging in physical pleasure while masquerading as khalsa means u aint as pure and unique from the world as u portray...

Thanks   all the answers make sense. A sikh should have morals and restrain, kissing in public doesn't fit in with that. A sikh should have shame/sharam. The characters in charitropakhyan are overly lustful, without shame and are described in negative light, so we should be the opposite.

if we can kiss in public, then why are some sikhs considering charitropakhyan as not bani. these same sikhs watch gandh in eastenders and soap operas as well

Ok I'm guilty of watching eastenders sometimes 😐

Personally what I have seen in the last 45 years. Is the fact that what we call white people western are less into public kissing then I see with brown people. I just say look away like fast forward a kissing scene in a movie. Simple as that.

Yes why not? Come on! Times change. There no hukam against it... Unfortunately, also no hukam against sex in public. BELIEVE ME! With humans one things lead to another; if this is ok, that is ok too! Attitude.

So let all be on the safe side n go with it is wrong for couples to even hug one another, in public!

    • What you folk need to understand about the intentions and desired affect behind the broader, "There is no Hindu, there is no Muslim" narrative pushed by certain contemporary ideologues is that by embracing and pushing this belief, it also endorses -- by omission -- the idea that there is also no Sikh. It is a sentiment of erasure; our erasure. The original sentiment espoused by Guru Sahib was a unifying idea  steeped in an admirable sense of spirituality whereby they wanted to promote the idea that our differences are superficial, and ultimately we are more than the labels that we cling to. This was  during a period where Hindus and Muslims were numbered in the millions. For someone to come along at the time and propose a so-called third way in the midst of social and religious strife, was a radical act, because at the time the adherents to that third way numbered a handful of individuals with no real presence. Some might argue, therefore, that Guru Sahib never planned for us to become the very thing they were rallying against, which I don't believe is true, because it would mean subsequent Guru Sahibs were spinning the wheels of rebellion and organisation without an end goal in mind, which I believe is false. Now that we've grown beyond that relatively short number YET are still nowhere near the billions of the other two factions, for us to promote and celebrate this "One Religion" idea in the modern world -- especially after everything we've seen and experienced in the subsequent centuries -- is damaging to our survival as a distinct group. You can either choose to belong to the human race and pretend as if differences and divisions don't exist, or you exist with some form of preference and affection for the unique cultural and religious heritage of your ancestors. Celebrating the distinctness of others while simultaneously undermining your own uniqueness and doctrine is what traitors do. And a group comprised of traitors -- whether they be well-meaning yet misguided or of the calculating variety -- is a group that is destined for destruction.

    • Why I am not allowed to talk about black folk? I hope you are not trying to censor me. You do come from a country where the 1st amendment is all important.  Nothing I said was hate speech.  You seem to have a tyrannical authoritarian streak in you.
    • Because the color of the Akali bana given by Guru Gobind Singh ji is blue. When the SGPC came and removed the Shromani Akali Panth Budhha Dal from the Akal Takhat, it called itself "Akali Dal", and retained elements of the Akali maryada in order to call themselves "Akalis".
