Attachment to Community?

Recommended Posts

If I feel a sense of belongingness towards my motherland, would that be 'attachment' if viewed through the lens of Sikhi, because Guru Gobind Singh ji told us to recognise the entire human race as one?

Many (not all) Sikhs speak up for Punjab only but not for the people of other states where people are facing some or the other sort of injustice. The way Muslims are being targeted in India these days , even to the extent of trying to force them to convert, is shameful, yet I do not see any brother or sister taking a stand for them. [Diaspora Sikh readers may think whether they are doing enough for their respective countries' non-Sikhs.] We sure do langar sewa but is that all we should be doing?

Have we failed to follow true Sikhi? Why are we not standing up for ALL people? Is it the attachment towards our motherland/community that's causing us to see things blurry? Or would it be practically far fetched to think of such things at the moment?

Its not attachment, its a sense of pride for the nation you belong to or are resident of. Like sporting your home country’s  team in cricket world cup.

attachment which is ‘bad’ in Sikhi is attachment which makes you forget god. Like being so attached to wealth/family/property/ drugs/alcohol 

in terms of standing up, yes our gurus taught us to stand up. ‘Bole so nihal’ means we have to speak. There’s times we Have to speak like Guru nanak spoke out against forcefully adopting Hindu traditions of tying thread on wrist and like Guru Teghbhadur spoke out against muslims forcing hindus to convert. Or like Baba Deep Singh ji spoke out against the disrespect of harmandir sahib

The problem with any Indians is attachment to culture and places or origin. 

 

Guru Nanak travelled wide and far seeing all as one. A truly humantirian quality. Do you think he saw a human in the Middle East as being different to one in India?

 

You just need to look beyond your outer appearance and learned culture and see the soul behind the skin colour.

    • Please don't use this "if you are bless to have a daughter" because this is putting women on a pedestal.  The reality is that there are truths whether you like them or not. I would not like my daughter to dump some decent hard working guy for a richer guy just because he had more money and getting a higher status. But I know that when my daughter gets married she will look into how much the guy makes, what profession he is in, will her status increase, does he have his own house, does he make more than her.  Please don't say this particular feature does not exist in a women's nature. Just because you may not act upon it does not mean it doesn't exist. I could bring you example after example said out of woman's mouth and her actions that someone can connect the dots. There a truths (unflattering) about men's nature which I don't find it offensive. Now should I say "I would should be blessed to have a son". Here is a reality about men's nature. There is part of men's nature that if a man could he would have unlimited sexual access to as many women as possible. The reality is that this is not possible for the majority of men. 90 per cent of men at least this is impossible.  Here is another uncomfortable  reality,  you have more female ancestors than male ancestors and you know why?  Because throughout human history, human's were never monogamous. 80 percent of men never bred with women because 20 percent of the top tier had access to all the women. Women sexually selected top tier men to have kids with. They shared their men with other women and they preferred that to having a low status man. That is how the institution of marriage came about with one woman to one man. There are truths about muslims nature which on another thread which a muslim probably finds offensive. We don't bat an eyelid because we know it is the truth. It is 2020, equality does not mean putting women on a pedestal. You want privilege. You are also displaying a behaviour as well that my bhuas directly from their mouths have told me which is unflattering about women and that is they never like to admit to their foibles. 
    • What is with the muslim obsession with debates? They have so many uncomfortable flaws in their faith they literally need to be a lawyer to constantly defend it. It explains a lot about their general aggressive attitude. Even this muslim neighbour, doesn't answer a straight question, keeps deflecting and targeting jvk.
    • I had darshan of sant ji when I was a child. He was my baba ji's friend. 
    • You gave me an idea. Why don't you get mullahs to give speeches in mosques about the 'wrongness' of pedophilia and grooming rapist gangs? That might help deal with the problem in your community!  Or is that acceptable behaviour in your faith?
