Sikh History

There is alot of controversy surrounding the amount of evidence we have for our history such as the encounters between our Gurus and the Mughals. Do we have any proof of these encounters such as the Gurus being tortured by the Mughals upon Aurangzebs request. Obviously as a Sikh i believe it but the claims that the history may have been altered along the way due to over exaggeration may be valid too if there is a lack of evidence.

First of all, we don't need any validation from anybody. If they don't want to believe our history, that's their problem, not ours.

Secondly, if you're weak and wavering and find a need for validation from non-Sikhs, there are European and Muslim sources regarding Sikh history. For one, the Emperor Jahangir himself mentions in his autobiography that he wants to put an end the "shop" being run by Guru Arjun Dev ji in which gullible Muslims are becoming Sikhs.

Given that the penalty for leaving Islam is death, what do you think the penalty was supposed to be for encouraging huge numbers of people to leave Islam?

There was also a European traveler (forgot his name) who witnessed and mentioned Guru Sahib's shaheedi.

    • Back in the day many jananis didn't used to dance - my mum and her sister are terrible at dancing and when I was younger I would ask why they didn't dance like other ladies, and instead just stood there, did the mandatory clapping, and swiftly leave. I remember asking my Bibi about this too. According to them the "upper castes" did not engage in this behaviour; it was not permitted and seen as besharmi. However certain castes were permitted, and so dancers were hired I think? Can't remember. Ironic now though. You see women who are well past the age of wearing brightly coloured suits nach'ing and tapp'ing. Oh vi uchi jaat de. Weddings were so simple. Close family would go for Anand Kaaraj, everybody went back to the house, fed the baraat, sagan, bas. Hun pura drama hunda ah.
    • @puzzled Honestly in that situation it's our farj to say something. Nowadays people are overly sensitive but we should still say something...have to remain cool though and say it pyaar de naal.
    • The suggestive dancing has gone on for decades.  The first time I saw it, my jaw dropped. In Punjab nobody bats an eyelid.  Compared to Punjab, you will probably see more people in the UK going to Anand Karaj and that I'd probably because of the milni and tea at the Gurdwara whereas the milni and tea in Punjab is at the palace.  Never underestimate the lure of free food.  
    • the true history dheaan which now bewakoof people are encouraging to do in Punjab making it easier for their daughters to be attacked
