Hinduism and Islam


Recommended Posts


Sikhism can become a global force. But we don't have funding or any kind of parchaar organisations. 

Muslims have hundreds of missionary organisations. They give out free Korans. They also do love jihad to convert women. 

Sikhs need to start giving out informational leaflets out and have help for people interested in Sikhi. 

Only one is basics of sikhi who don't me seem to be up to much at the moment.

I have donated to them but what projects are they doing these days.

If you think the mass conversions happen from just mere missionary/dawah, you must be deluded.

That is also true.

For instance at college back in the day there was a black Christian girl and a Hindu girl. These 2 girls use to hang around with Muslims girls. It was not surprising though as 90 percent of the college was Muslim. But they should have hung around with their own faith people.

Anyway these girls converted to Islam by being influenced by their friends. 

Many times people convert from attending a religious event or occasion. Or going to a friend's Eid party or birthday.

In the UK 80 to 90 percent of Islamic converts are usually due to marrying a Muslim. Hence why love jihad is biggest source of converts.

Yh but look at how many people are leaving Islam and christianity as well.  Thing with Hinduism is that it's a culture as well  holi, garba dance, diwali, lohri, sarees, etc all is culture as well as religion  so that gives it strength 

Most Islamic countries the culture and religion are in conflict      a bit like us really 

Hindus have made their religion into the culture

One convert to Sikhi in a year isn’t good enough.

The problem is we don't have large scale parcharic groups. Many would become Sikhs. But these people have no idea Sikhism even exists. 

Basics of Sikhi are doing the right thing. Only they need to do it on a much larger scale. Not token events here and there. 

They need to parchaar all over and regularly not one off events.

    • *bump I firmly believe that one quote in regards to cannabis is not written by Guru Nanak Dev Ji (O'lord the fear of thee). B/c nasha is nasha. But cannabis is a bit a different since it was used for medicinal purposes in India also. 
    • I feel gurdwaras are maybe somewhat getting back to their functions as dharmsalas containing schools and learning centres. With panjabi schools, gurmat classes, santhiya, martial arts, keertan training, with sikhi camps occasionally in towns, there is somewhat some functions connected to traditional gurdwaras of the past.
    • I do sometimes think that the function of a gurdwara has expanded to things that were not expected before. We expect them to be political institutions, we want them to be social clubs, we want them to be creches, we want them to be daycare centres. 
    • there's too many Kenya Singhs in those kinda gurdwaras, really chummy chummy with the goras and politicians, fixo the beards to the max and younger generations just trimming it instead of getting into the fixo malarkey, lack of open beards and turbans you can take off like hats, don't make for intimidating or annakhi singhs. I heard that pakistanis try to pickup girls from the Slough Ramgharia gurdwara.  They need to join with the other 2 gurdwaras in Slough to help them out, they can't act like the elders did where they split from the Singh Sabha gurdwara because they were too aggressive, now is the time to use that aggression.  And the Guru Maneyo Granth gurdwara Bath Road gets nationwide sangat on Sundays, so just use those numbers in Slough! in these gurdwaras, gyanis and sewadaars are known by the regular sangat, and regular sangat is close knit. Activities and panjabi schools are also good as most of the same children come.  In both areas, I don't like the lack of cooperation between Ramgharia and Singh Sabha gurdwaras. Overall it's a benefit to have gurdwaras in at least 2 different locations in big towns and cities. But it's bad if they don't cooperate, especially in major issues that Khalsa is known for. Ramgharia gurdwaras like to rep up Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia, with the Slough gurdwara even having a statue. But the lack of keeping Khalsa rehit, looking too scared and cowardly to keep full beards or open beards, not acknowledging the Khalsa Nihang Singh mentality of Jassa Singh and being stuck in the kenya Singh mentality, not even willing to read Chaupai Sahib properly during Rehras, and many of these Ramgharia gurdwaras are not even willing to keep basic rehit of allowing sitting on the floor for langar and allowing shoes inside as well, all these behaviours aren't working for chardi kala of the panth! It's like they are trying to keep their own type of sikhi, it's not even a tradition, just being stuck in their own box, they are not in the colonial British army, or serving in the world wars, or making train tracks or some other jobs for the gora, why do they behave this way, this archaic stuff in gurdwara? And doesn't do justice to Jassa Singh Ramgharia, who would have been a rehitee Nihang Singh, annakhi Singhs who defeated the enemies and kept in the brotherhood of the Khalsa with the other misls, even after their whole misl was excommunicated expelled from the panth, they still rejoined the Khalsa and helped defeat the enemies! I don't see them trying to integrate with the rest of the panth in the ramgharia gurdwaras, not like Jassa Singh, obviously it's the elders who instil these mentalities, with some of the youngsters trying to connect back into sikhi!
    • Try get CBT - Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of talking therapy. It is a common treatment for a range of mental health problems. CBT teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems. It focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and actions. It can help overcome anxiety. In the UK you can self-refer to a professional service offering CBT therapy. I know a few people who have had this and it helped with their social anxiety.
