Indians worship bin

Recommended Posts

It's actually sad how misguided these people are. Pandits and preists also take advantage of the simplicity of these illiterate people.   But then again how dumb does one have to be to worship a plastic kangaroo!  I understand most Indians are poor and uneducated but they seem to lakh any common sense. 

I think when your culture is built around superstitions then this is what happens.

Maybe they thought it was some creature out of ramayan or Mahabharata?  I'm lost for words.

I see plenty of 'educated' 'sikhs' worshipping mercedes, BMW, and Audi. Is that different to a kangaroo?

A sikh buying an expensive car compared to a statue of a kangaroo that is only there to be worshipped are not the same or even close.  Many people praise their car for the features it has and how expensive it is but it does not equate to worshipping a statue in a building.  The statue is worshipped because it is told the kangaroo statue has certain worship values where something is provided in return.  Cars are praised for their actual features that they have and can demonstrate by using the car.  It's usable product.

Sorry my bad. Educated Sikhs go to the gurdwara to give 'change' (haven't you ever heard people or yourselves ,at the gurdwara entrance asking each other if you've got 'change') and then ask maharaj for a flashy car, promotions , bigger houses , more money etc  in return ? Mocking people for worshipping a kangeroo is a bit rich when we have our own follies

Still a difference between asking Maharaj for something and asking a plastic bin in the shape of a kangroo for something. 

Where talking about 2 different things here. One is a group of people actually doing pooja of a plastic bin/kangaroo because they believe that it is divine and can respond to their prayers.  

And the other, what your talking about is people being materialistic.

But yeah  i get what your saying. 

You can compare the kangroo video I posted with sikhs worshiping ancestors, babas, deras and all that stuff.

Waheguru knows iv never asked for more money, car, house, promotion or anything like that    neither am I interested in that stuff. 

But yeah as a kid, teenager I have asked my mum for change at the gurdwara lol

You are still unable to understand the difference.   I think you are upset because you worship a monkey statue and the light may have turned on in your brain after seeing it's wrong to worship a kangaroo statue.  There was also no mocking being done.  How much are you getting paid to divert topics on this forum?

    • Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh   Khalsa ji, Dhan Dhan BrahamGiani Pooran Mahapurak Sant Baba Thakur Singh Ji Never ever lied. If they said it then and you beileved it or chose to stay quiet. why all of a sudden the change?  Shaheed Baba Deep Singh Ji were 80!! when they got the message of incoming invasion. So is sant ji is under 80 then why would it be too late? also if it was lets say sant ji was 100 then your argument would make sense. instead now just based of the past, they still have time to come.    Thanks, bhul chuk maaf karna ji    
    • In the end, the volatile nature of the region and the demographics means that it will NEVER be any sort of stronghold/safe haven for Sikhs compared to other places across the border. But if the principle of safety in numbers and support networks have any truth, refugee Sikhs may well prefer these locations over others. Only rose tinted glasses wearers (of which there are MANY) would blindly consider the place as any sort of friendly safe haven, and experiences with paks in other nations (like the UK) give a strong indication of how we are perceived by many from the region.  We've got a problem with simple-mindedness and gullibility, but hopefully people will learn not to be victims of this.  Right now, for economic reasons (and maybe political ones too?), it serves p'stan to open up these places. It's on our people to make the most of this and implement whatever security measures are appropriate. Having ears and eyes in the region isn't a bad thing either. Yes, things can change suddenly and quickly, say if some hard-line cleric gets in power. Much like the shift from Akhbar to his son Jahunghira. Events in India like attacks on mosques outside of Punjab can also cause a sudden change too. This happened in Afghanistan with the attack on the Babri mosque for example.  If nothing else it can serve as a point for Afghan-pak Sikhs to get closer to the majority panth in Panjab proper.  
    • Not sure whether the displays of affection and respect towards sikhs by the pakistani Punjabi people are authentic reflection of what lies in their hearts. Because if it were the case, surely Sikh population in pak wouldn't have dwindled to what it is today OR perhaps and this could be the case that only the Punjabi speaking Pakistanis of Punjab province find likeness in sikhs across the border because of similar language and to a degree culture, and the apparently sweet memories of Maharaja Ranjit Singhs just rule . I suspect it's mostly the Urdu speaking, deobandi affiliated crowd of pak that creates most islamist problems in both India and pak.  Whatever maybe the case Lahore has always fascinated me because of its irreplaceable place in Sikh history. It's a place both loved and hated by sikhs because of obvious historical reasons. 
    • Awesome post!   This one is especially great in details of a class environment. Look at the bottom left corner here. The kid in yellow appears to be smacking up the other one for breaking his water bucket. lol! Then on the right corner another kid appears to be punishing a classmate with the old kukkar move.  Are the ones in the middle are making pens (or kalams)? 
    • I remember something appearing on the market that was supposed to have been from the library a few years back. Can't remember much about it though.   As for what has been returned (as per claims), hasn't the SGPC learnt its lessons yet and digitised them and made people aware of what we have?   Why do these people sit on these things and not inform the panth of what we have? I know the average illiterate/semi-illiterate apna wouldn't be interested but lots of us would, including (if not especially) in the diaspora.
