older generations did sell out sikhi by trying to fill the ideology/heads of youth/sikhs with concepts meant to appease others, i.e. God is one, in sikhi women are equal, sikhs serve humanity. these are all western concepts that were emphasised to win points with westerners. ultimately this damaged our panth. saying God is one meant sikhs felt no loyalty to their own religion, saying women are equal meant they went off to act like h*es and get drunk like the worst of men, saying sikhs serve humanity basically made youth atheists
even now you see 'amrtidharis' collecting government medals or throwing saropas around politicians- shame.
if you're thinking about 'raising awareness' you're basically thinking about other people. this is wrong. a sikh only thinks about (serves) God, and shouldn't care what society etc thinks or how they react "sir deejai kaan na kejai"
