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

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’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.

    • I think this type of attitude helps keep Panjab economically backwards.  
    • This history seems true. It's not a new discovery, and this Zorowar Singh palit has a history and legacy in Bassi Pathaan that people there still acknowledge.  Info has been out about Zorowar Singh Palit since the late 60s at least, when Ganda Singh put out Sri Gursobha. That people here haven't heard of him here says more about their own piss poor study of history than anything else.  Plus this figure being from a tarkhan background would have motivated the usual jut casteists to jealously try and bury his memory, so that probably played a big part in his occlusion and hence so much ignorance about him. I'm not too familiar with Uhdoke, what makes you say the above about him?    
    • Could Labour Party have not chosen a better female, Bangladeshi candidate to represent the constituency? She seems quite incompetent, more so than many MP's ? ! https://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/news/national/19470166.labour-mp-trial-housing-fraud-weeps-describes-fleeing-family-home/ Labour MP on trial for housing fraud weeps as she describes fleeing family home By Press Association 2021      26th July Apsana Begum     A Labour MP accused of housing fraud wept in court as she described the “traumatic” moment she called police and fled her family home after an argument with her brother during which he claimed she was possessed. Apsana Begum, 31, who is on trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court, said she went to a police station on May 21 2013 out of fear she could become the victim of honour-based violence after her brother followed her to work. On the same day, the Poplar and Limehouse MP said an argument erupted at her family home in east London when her brother locked her in the living room. She said: “He told me he wanted me to see an imam because I wasn’t registering their concern about (her partner) Ehtashamul (Haque). “He thought I was possessed and said he wanted me to get checked. “I refused and said I’m not under a spell, this is my choice and I just wanted them to support me. But he started reciting the Koran. He had his hand over my head. “I started shouting for my mum but she wasn’t responding. I didn’t know what was going to happen next.   “I thought he might beat me up.” Begum said she managed to call 999 and when officers arrived she fled with only her handbag. A court clerk passed Begum tissues as she said she had to collect her belongings which her family had placed in black bin bags outside their house on Woodstock Terrace. Giving evidence on Monday wearing a white shirt and grey headscarf, Begum told the jury her Bangladeshi-heritage family disapproved of her relationship with Mr Haque, who is now a Tower Hamlets councillor. Begum met Mr Haque while doing a community leadership post-graduate diploma. He was seven years older and had been married twice before, and her family did not see him as a suitable match for her. She denies three counts of housing fraud for allegedly withholding information about her living circumstances to jump the queue for a council house between January 2013 and March 2016. Tower Hamlets Council, which is bringing the prosecution, alleged it cost the local authority £63,928. Begum is accused of not notifying the council that she was no longer living in overcrowded accommodation – as she claimed when she applied for social housing – after she moved in with Mr Haque. She claims she rang the council to notify it for council tax purposes and believed it would share the information. She said it was a period of “turmoil” due to the breakdown of her relationship with her family and having lost her father months before. Begum also claims Mr Haque was “controlling and coercive” and had taken over her “matters and affairs”. “We had started a new life together – it wasn’t easy but it’s what we had chosen. He said he would tell everyone,” she added. During an interview with the council’s fraud investigations team on January 21 2020, a transcript of which was read out in court, she said: “I was going through a lot of turmoil at the time, escaping from an abusive situation and later on realising he (Mr Haque) was very, very abusive. “He told me he was handling my matters and affairs. He had my details, bank details, he was making transfers and all that.” In response to evidence that her account had been making bids for houses while she was known to be living with Mr Haque, she denied making the bids and said: “I’m shocked to see these records.” Asked if the bids could have been made by Mr Haque, Begum said: “It must have been him. He had access to the accounts.” Last week, Begum’s defence lawyer Helen Law said investigators failed to “join the dots”, including that the complaint about her applications in 2019 was made by a relative of Mr Haque, Sayed Nahid Uddin. She said she split with Mr Haque after he cheated on her in mid-2016. She added that she had also become concerned that he had a drinking problem. In November 2016, Begum called police to report that Mr Haque had been following her from her workplace in his car, after constantly calling and texting her. The prosecution says Begum attempted to gain social housing at first by claiming she lived in an overcrowded three-bedroom house with her family and did not have a bedroom of her own, which made her a higher priority in the queue. However, according to a social housing application made in 2009 by Begum’s aunt, the house had four bedrooms. Begum insists there were only three when she lived there. Prosecutor James Marsland claimed she “must have had a good understanding of the social housing system and how it operated” because she worked for Tower Hamlets Homes (THH), a public organisation working with the council to arrange social housing, between October 28 2013 and August 3 2016. The MP, who sits on the Commons Education Committee, entered Parliament with a 28,904 majority in the 2019 election.
