endemic hatred of sikhs in India (past 50 yrs-present)

Recommended Posts

Guest guest

Hi

Just a list of ways that Hindus have shown active hatred towards Sikhs in recent history (with proof).

The point of this thread is not to promote hatred of Hindus.  Hatred is against religious all tenets (God is Nirvair, so sikhs should strive to be too), and also obviously not all Hindus are bad/hate Sikhs.  A lot of Hindus have spoke up for Sikhs, both in the past and now, even at risk to themselves and their careers.  Also, alot of Hindus have interest in Sikhi and Gurbani and go to Gurdwara, I would not like those Hindus to feel bad or put off at all.  In fact they may also find this enlightening.

1.  Santa Banta / Sardarji Jokes

throughout the 80s, 90s and early 2000 it was common for hindu media and popular culture to promote vicious 'jokes' trying to ridicule Singhs and always frame them as stupid.  the whole tenor of these jokes was nasty.  i wish some one would compile them to show the world what kind of 'humour' was being promoted.  the whole aim was to belittle sikhs and insult them in the public imagination.  this compares to how Nazis targeted Jews in their media.

3.  Bollywood depiction of Sikhs

again, I wish someone would compile the blatant nastiness shown against sikhs in cinema from 80s up until present, and put it on youtube to show the real nature of 'bollywood'.  I have been quite disgusted by the amount of times my aunt has been watching some bollywood film and i have randomly sat down and seen some sort of ridicule or put down of sikhs (always with a turbaned character to make it clear).

4.  Sunny Leone- Bollywood had to go all the way to Canada to get Sunny Leone.  Why?  Aren't there Hindu girls in India who work as pornstars?  Of course there are, but Hindu audiences don't want to see that...

5.  Dharendra and Dara Singh had to convert to Hinduism (Arya Samaj) in order to have film careers.  (though not sure why Dara kept 'Singh' in his name?)

6.  Hindi Dramas- in Hindi tv dramas Hindu woman are always depicted as ideal wives, doing religious ceremonies and running around after their Hindu husbands.  Where as Sikh women are shown as devious, running around with their 'bf' behind their parents backs etc.  again, why the double standard?

7.  Subramanium Swami-  theres footage on Youtube some where of him addressing some Hindus in USA I think, where he says Manmohan Singh "was only good at taking orders" and the audience start laughing exaggeratedly and hysterically (diss at Manmohan SIngh).  He also admits working with some other 'Singh' in his speech but lowers the tone when he mentions his name.  basically trying to take credit for Singhs work.  i can't find this anymore i suspect he had it taken down because it was at a small function in USA (he didn't want anyone to see it).

8.  Amrita Pritam vs Kamala Das

Indian media loves to hype up Amrita Pritam.  Pritam got famous for one (!) poem.   After she won a literary prize (which gave her money) she dumped her husband and started running after the most famous male poet at the time (a muslim).  he slept with her once then dumped her without telling her and got a hindu girlfriend instead.  she spent the rest of her life running after him.  now is a man acted like this after a woman people would say he was a loser and a creep, but Pritam is some how praised as some romance figure and great poet (for one poem?)

meanwhile, there was Hindu lady poet - Kamala Das, at the same time.  Das was very famous for a number of books (not just one poem).  After her husband died, she fell in love with a muslimsand converted to Islam.  And guess what?  She was blacklisted.  No one even bothers to mention her name anymore.  

Again, double standard?

9.  Master Madan- child prodigy at music.  Natural gift for singing.  was murdered by poising at age of 15.  funny, no one ever tied to poison any hindu or muslim singers?

10. Ishmeet Singh-  winner of Indias first national TV singing competition.  Found drowned in a swimming pool with signs of violence of his body (basically murdered) whilst on tour with other Hindu singers and crew.  Again, nothing like this has happened to any Hindu winners?  Btw, Ishmeet couldn't swim, so would not have gone into the pool by his own accord.

11.  Joyce Pettigrew- anthropologist working in India in the 80s.  When she suggested the situation with the Sikhs would be suitable for study, she was beaten and raped.

12.   Chandigarh- Panjab has to 'share' Chandigarh with Haryana.  No other state in India has to do this. 

guys add more points if you think of any.

Yh Amrita pritam is very overrated. She's more famous for her affairs than her actual work. Media always mentions her affairs. Shiv Kumar batalvis work is a lot better than hers yet nobody outside of Punjab has heard of him. Amrita pritam was a slapper. 

Theres many indian pornstars  sahara knite, priya rai   etc   yet they got sunny leone and then they released that movie about her with kaur in the title when she doesnt even use kaur in her name. 

Currently theres a drama on colors tv called choti sardarni and it's about a sikh female who gets pregnant before marriage and then her mother forces an abortion and gets her married to a respectable sardar.

I have also seen Hindu dudes make fun of kachhera worn by Sikh men. Basically they think sikhs are so unfashionable they're wearing those baggy kachhera in era of jockey shorts.

I’ve long seen what Bollywood promotes and it’s stuff like sex before marriage, “living in”, boyfriend/girlfriend relationships, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and putting down Sikhs. It’s why i abhor it and don’t watch it.

I see many apni girls who look up to Bollywood. They are influenced by it, heavily so. Bollywood is a force of evil.

Shiv Kumar Batalvi is probably the most famous and bets known punjabi poet.  but this isnt a surprise since he is a hindu brahmin.  

if you read the guy's biography, halfway through his life someone gave him a job at a bank at Chandigarh.  in what way does being a 'poet' make you qualified to be a bank manager? lol.  (i.e. he just got that role based on his religion and caste.  typical of post-'independance' indian corruption.)

he also romanticised alcoholism and his poetry is very narcissistic.  

i saw an interview with him on youtube once and he was clearly drunk.  how is that respectable?  he cannot even show up to an interview sober.

hindu guys, both in india and the west, also target sikh girls to use for sex and then dump.  i have seen it numerous times.

hindus see sikhs are lessor people, and see sikh women as ripe for exploitation.

    • Perhaps this is the key to the root cause of it all ? What does he think won't change ?  What if you or your wife feign a disease ? Will he come if his mom pretends she's on bed suffering with something ?  Basically something that will bring him back to home and let him stick there atleast for a few weeks , giving you and your wife time to mend the relationships and break the ice

      Thank you for your kind words. I’m sharing this because there maybe someone who has experienced similar anguish or as a warning to look out for. Perhaps a snapshot of a British born kid with Punjabi heritage and some Sikhi values tried to be instilled.  Upon reflection I was a more hands on Dad than my father was and yet I still feared and respected him. I believe that I may have been more informal and given greater freedom than I had to my son. To that degree I think I may have contributed to his stupidity. When I was his age I had been tempted to act out as he is doing now but I knew it was wrong. 3 of my peers didn’t stop and now 20 years later because of their dysfunctionality, sadly all 3 are divorced with kids run wild, health problems etc.  ‘My parents are getting fed up with his antics and I think it’s a matter of weeks before they snap and I get a call to say he’s left. He was involved in a car crash where as a passenger he was shunted from behind and had whiplash. The next evening he goes out from 10-2am and an exasperated grandmother lets him in.  ‘I went for an evening out with my family in the centre of a midlands city. As I was walking back to the car (approx 10.30pm) there was an ambulance ready with a stretcher. Just waiting. What a damning indictment that they expect carnage having seen it regularly, week after week.  That tragic tale of the 14 year old girl makes you want to weep. I realise that there may be a chance he comes to his senses but the world in which we live in has changed so dramatically I’m struggling to keep up with daily disbelief. I’ve been to 50 odd parties in the last 20 years and probably 3 out that there was a fight and today I hear it’s a regular occurrence. I see Punjabis in the midlands with turbans but a shaven beard. What idiots.  When I was about 17 there was a pretty Punjabi girl from a wealthy family at my college. There was a large presence of Muslims and Sikhs with the usual cliques and it was revealed she had a black boyfriend. He even collected her from college. Overnight she was castigated by everyone and within a few days she left and never returned. I don’t know what circumstances surrounded her life but today I don’t think nobody would raise an eyebrow.   
    • I KNOW I KNOW! Extremely old post but a link... Searchgurbani.com will answer this.  Home page, select 3 dot thing on top, click Dasam Granth, click prefered index search Punjabi or English and voila!  So far am reading Charitropakehyon, a few verses per day. 
    • When you are happy or laughing do you go asking for help? After all you are in those 'emotional states' temporarily before you are in another temporary state. They are caused by specific inputs (i.e a joke) that your 'wiring' interprets and responds to with an action like laughing, endorphin release etc. The same goes with 'anxiety' it's a product of your 'wiring' (or ego if you want to give a specific name, that voice inside your head, the me), and how it responds to stimuli / inputs. Does your eternal 'awareness' that observes the voice in your head suffer with anxiety, stress, laughter, joy etc? Nah. That was the way this fool dealt with emotions it didn't like. I (in a loose sense) just started to observe the emotions as a temporary thing that come and go, and if they deep down didn't make me better were just not welcome anymore in taking up my awareness. That voice in your head is not you. Read some Elkhart Tolle to understand a bit about that disfucntional voice in your head 
    • seems so ...maybe we can lift the good khalsa habits they have preserved and reintroduced them in our lives  such as that nitnemi attitude.
