What? You made the statement yourself.

I just asked you what it meant.
Instead of answering, you go off into something else.

I guess that means your statement (that "Guru Nanak ji taught us to be logical") means nothing at all.

All right, then, that's out of the way. Because you refuse to defend the statement.

So Guru Nanak ji did not teach us to be logical.

Answer my question first, would you let your child die because you refused to cut their hair for a brain operation?

Ok that's very silly.

AH! being hardcore like that isn't for everyone. The more meditation, bania, sangat, simran and seva one does the easier it becomes to understand things better.

So tell me would you let your son or daughter's life to end if the only way to save them is to operate on their head and hence have to remove some hair?

That was not the original story of this thread.

he did not gave to do it. His religion should be more important to him than his work

God would always help pukka Gursikh find solutions.

in the case of child you are asking question about, would br best to seek advice of a religious leader if in that situation

I would think that someone who had Brahmgian would know much more than a worldly logician ...get some sikhi insight and crack some books. By your thinking all the shaheeds were illogical and therefore wrong but sikhi sees them upholding their principles instead of living life as slaves and husks of men. Standing up for your beliefs and remaining a person of your word is more important than mere logic and convenience to a gursikh , to follow the Guru Sahib whereever He takes you in life.

Good point! would I? Naaah am in attachment. I'd b like "Koi na puth! kes fir a jao ge." 

Of course Kartar Singh parents were, I would imagine, no longer alive or didn't know what was going on as mobile phone didn't exist back then plus not all households had landline. But whether they were around or not Sant Kartar Singh was at a Brahmgian stage. Sikhi was EVERYTHING to him. Brahmgians wholly detach worldly things. 

We can only dream of reaching such stages.

Ok would you do the same thing if you were old and had children and possibly grandchildren who wanted you to continue living?

Fairly new. Unfortunately not all Gursikhs are hardcore hard sikhs. Only Sant Kartar Singh was, who accepted death instead of an operation where some hair removal would've been inevitable. 

Literally dumber words have never been written then this! What’s next? No blood transfusions from non Amritdhari’s? I hope that you recall the journal of the physician attending to Guru Gobind Singh Ji notes that hair removal and stitching was needed and done after he was fetched to care for Guru Ji.  (Source: Mogul India by Niccolao Manucci)

If you weren’t there, you cannot verify what happened.

Its totally allowed in sikhi to cut hair for kedical emergencies and get pesh. But alot of elderly sikhs dont do undergo surgeries that require hairloss IF the risk of dying on the table is high. 

They dont want to die a patit. 

Ofc we should remember religious tolerance is a great sikhi principle. However we only apply it to other faiths not towards sikhs. Mostly its the liberal or not rehit following that get kn a high horse. But lets all remember we r at different stages of spirituality and we r not the ones goint thru that problem. Who knows if we would be strong enoygh to do the right things.

    • Ok, I think hadiths play a role in the conflict too because they reject each others hadiths. They  basically arguing over one matter but each using a different set of books with different narratives lol  Cant see them reaching a conclusion with that any time soon!   Shias dont like Aisha the child bride. Sikhs are really lucky that we dont have major differences in Sikh sects like muslims and Christian's do. The worst I can think of is the nirankaris and their on going line of gurus but they are pretty much are out of the fold of Sikhi now and did whatever damage they wanted to back in the 80s. 
    • Yes, @MuslimNeighbour, please do enlighten us on this (and other questions we have).
    • That's not entirely true. There is a Hadith (and I'm paraphrasing here as I don't remember all the details) when the prophet initially invited all the quresh tribes to dinner to invite them to Islam. He asked the question, who will be my brother (in faith), my friend and my successor (khalifa). Imam Ali immediately stood up. The prophet asked him to sit down (as he was still quite young, though extremely loyal to the prophet from day one). The prophet asked the question again, and again the same thing happened. On the third time, when Imam Ali stood up, the prophet said, very well, you will be my brother, my friend and my successor. This hadith is found in both sunni and shia books. There is also a verse in the quran (and please correct me if I'm wrong) where Allah says that he chooses his khalifa. Depending on the context of this verse, this could invalidate the khalifate of Abu Bakar and validate the divinity of Ali being the khalifa. There is also a "Hadith-e-Noor" (found in both sunni and shia books) in which the prophet says, Me and Ali are created from the same light. These (and many others) are just some of the points which could point to the divine claim that Imam Ali was indeed the divine successor to the prophet.  But yes, there was plenty of killing of the family of the prophet. And many battles ensued, which resulted in parts of the quran being lost. But...that's a different topic entirely....
