What exactly do you mean by "jatt casteist"? That he whips and kills members of other groups? Or that he married a Jatti (your mother)? There's a big difference between the two.

That the other castes are inferior. Supporting their rights and elevating them will cause choas. That most of the crimes, riots, gang rapes are done by low caste ppl. They have no inhibition and the more free they are of poverty the more chance they have of causim damage.

Where do you think that falls on your spectrum?

"Ruthless businessman"? This has been covered in the forum. Just because you are a Sikh does not mean you are required to sell products at the cost you bought them. You shouldn't lie, but you really don't think you're required to run your business at a loss, do you? Search for it, there's a sakhi of I think Bhai Banno that someone

You know, I didn't respond to your first post on this thread because it gave me so much to think about, that I couldn't answer it without serious reflection (which I'm still doing) - and I plan to answer as soon as I've structured my thoughts in a way that would make them easier to grasp. 

In the meanwhile, I applaud your straight up honesty, but you might want to delete the last couple of lines of the last post bro???

Some background on author. I notice the link to the book is gone now. Will try and find new source. 


In the Sikh Revolution, Jagjit Singh gloriously places the mission of the Sikh Gurus on the world stage. Drawing from Weberian analysis, Jagjit Singh, for the first time in the English language, masterfully accesses the Sikh oral and textual traditions in a broad defining thesis. His approach and interpretations provide a lucid and well-structured argument that sheds light on many of the Sikhs’ practices and beliefs and provides the historical and social backdrop that gave rise to the Sikh revolution.

Jagjit Singh (1904 - 1997) was a prominent Sikh scholar of the twentieth century. After graduation, Singh began his teaching career as a Lecturer at Sikh National College, Lahore. With the advent of the Indian struggle for freedom, he aligned himself with the Gaddar movement. His spiritual and political mentors included Wasakha Singh and Sohan Singh Bhakna who encouraged him to write Gadar di Lahir (1956) – one of the most authentic and concise accounts of the American led movement for Indian freedom.



Jagjit Singh’s key writings include The Sikh Revolution (1981), Perspectives of Sikh Studies (1985), Zat Pat te Sikh (1986), In the Caravan of Revolutions (1988) and Dynamics of Sikh Revolution (1999).

Jagjit Singh held a B.S. in Chemistry from Khalsa College, Amritsar and a M.S. in Chemistry from Panjab University, Lahore. He co-founded the Institute of Sikh Studies to advocate sovereign Sikh perspectives in academia.
