Sikh missionary society

Recommended Posts

www.sikhmissionarysociety.org

Just came across this group. Are they doing good at parchaar and what they do. I picked up some leaflets and they are quite good with providing info on Sikhi. 

Not sure about their name though. As Sikhism is not a missionary faith. So sounds a bit stange they would call their group or organisation this.

this organisation is a small Uk based group which has been running since I was a little girl 1970s  they are definitely not allied with dusht 'missionary' college in Ludhiana . They have a shop in Southall and used to have main office in Gravesend (not sure if still there) . i think they literally translated parchaarik to missionary and we do , do parchaar. Mum and Dad introduced us to sakhian via their booklets

I dont think they produce any new material? The booklets which iv got seem to be from the 80s and 90s

I forgot the name of the bhaji but the main sewadar of that organization used to share his knowledge here a lot. This is a good organization but seems to be in a dormant stage.

Think of it this way: They have a mission and the mission is to tell young Sikhs about their faith.

Does that make sense?

What about teaching non Sikhs. Also people maybe put off by that name. 

Just as I would be put of by Christian missionary society. 

They should be called Sikh global educational or something like that.

They would probably benefit enormously from such a 'rebranding' (sorry to use that word but can't think of any better one right now), but you know our 'uncles' are a bit slow on these things. 

Plus, as useful as it was at the time, it's obvious some of their material (for which I am grateful) has been superseded by massive amount of subsequent research that has taken place since their original publication.

    • The only reason why the Christians and Muslims are safe in Punjab is because Sikhs have have protected them from Hindus. That is why not one incident of anti Christian riots has occured in Punjab as it has occured all over Hindu India.    These Punjabi Christians are an ungrateful bunch. They attack Sikhs on social media and justify their targeting the Sikhs. Just look at how these rice bag converts all attacked kathakar Giani Jaswant Singh recently because he dared to call them out on their missionary activities.
    • punjab seems to be the new target for christian missionaries,  i think its becasue they started facing a lot of hostility in other parts of india, christian houses were robbed and churches vandalized, there r a lot of low key attacks on christians and churches in india,        punjab is a safer option for them 
    • He was a man of his times when such views were the norm. How is that any different from what you would find in the Bible or the Quran or even Jain and Buddhist scriptures?  A person should be judged by the moral values of their time period not by our modern standards and ethics. Using your line of thinking you can then go on to criticize almost anyone in history because they don't match our modern ethics and social norms.
    • they are making a mega church in jalandhar, gnna see a big number of conversions in the future. church is really wealthy and powerful and offers converts wealth and land  so that will draw a lot of people to it.  no sikhs have taken major action against this,  says a lot about sikh peoples attitude towards their faith doesn't it.  also when sikhs do convert the villagers dont actually disown them or excommunicate them   they continue socializing with them as normal     sikhi really isnt the priority for majority of the people there  so you wont see the common man responding to the spread of Christianity.  had christians built churches in varnasi and started converting people there then the hindus would of responded with a lot of hostility, perhaps murder.    just shows you the difference in attitude
