Allowing entry to someone with cigarette breath into a Gurdwara?

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest Singh

Wjkk Wjkf!

I recently had gone to Gurdwara Sisganj Sahib, Delhi, and while washing my hands I smelled cigarette breath on the guy next to me. Seemed like a non-Punjabi and non-Sikh. I didn't say anything to him then because I was in a hurry myself, but when I left the Gurdwara I found myself pondering as to whether I should have confronted him and stopped him from going in front of Maharaj in that state. It's also possible that he was there just for the langar and didn't matthaa tek at all. Should I have stopped him? How would you have handled this?

Wjkk Wjkf!

I think you should have politely asked him if he had just smoked and informed him of our Gurughar maryada. Maybe he didn't even know that he can't enter like that. Nowadays apart from Darbar Sahib pehredaar arent what they used to be in Gurughars.

It's good you didn't confront. Just let it go. He went to Matha tek, NEVER stop anyone from doing that. I understand drunk people go too t Matha tek. Highly debatable but they're doing a bhalla wala job.

correct answer.

if these ppl cnt be bothered to learn basic etiquette/protocol in a 'religious' place then its gna keep happenin until someone does decide to say somethin. is there visible signage around? or even leaflets?

ppl today r lax n frivolous. anything goes even if it means welcomin the same freeloaders whether apne or outsiders who only cum to fill their bellies wiv free food then leave wivout givin anythin bk in return.

this overly tolerant attitude only causes folk to lose respect n love for guruji over time.

they have more fear of ppl accusin em of bein 'racist', 'intolerant' or 'extremist'. than they do of guruji. the same buzzwords used by liberals cuz theyre weak cowards themselves.

    • YES! valid points. Life is a thing which can pull people into good / bad stuff. Religion, friends, fam and society can be factors. I too went down a "Make a quick buck" routine a few years back as I considered myself in a "Hard" life. Of course no one was hurt, injured or robbed in the process.
    • Iv listened to it before  I think it's real     he starts reciting the Quran as well 
    • @mods I'm not sure if this violates the forum rules. Please feel free to remove/alter if required. This is not a promotional post and I'm not affiliated with stack exchange. I've just submitted a proposal to them. Satsriakal people! I've created a proposal at stack exchange( the largest question/answer website on the web, similar to quora) to start a sub site devoted to Sikhism where people can post questions and receive answers from others. I request everyone to please follow the site to keep it active so that it can be pushed to the next stage(beta)and isn't deleted.
      Please click "follow" at the below link: https://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/122932/sikhism Once the number of followers meet the minimum criteria, there will be a sub section on stack exchange devoted only to Sikhism, which I think will be a great thing. Let's give our best to make this proposal count. Since this is a new proposal, it also lacks sample questions. Please feel free to upvote the existing questions or add new ones related to Sikhism.
    • shes from a different community n anotha part of town. abt 15 yrs younger than the female elder as well. so y wud she be keepin their company? seems like she was either abandoned by her own for wateva reason n lost her way. maybe livin rough n desperate before bein targeted. or she knew the place well as a worker or regular customer n wanted a piece of the prize from wat wudve seemed a simple 'transaction'?
    • Sidh Gohst is a Sikh Prayer... (i hope u weren't being sarcastic)? Prayer came about when Guru Nanak Ji had an assembly (gohst) with Sidhs, hence the name Sidh Gohst. The prayer is like a Q&A session where Sidhs ask n Guru Ji answers... NOW! Who been telling me to stick t learning about Sidh Gohst?? 😔
