What did the sikh missionaries do?

Recommended Posts

Why do a lot of sikhs bash the sikh missionaries? I am not a supporter, but i want to know more about them, and why are they bashed? This might give me a insight to the situation.

Their core beliefs are:

- Not believe in our history (janam Sakhis)
- Not believe in importance of Sri Harmandir Sahib
- Not believe in the power Amrit Sanchar
- Not believe that Gurus were anything more than a regular human (not god sent and does not have any power)
- Not believe in daily mandatory recitation of sikh prayers (degrade our gurus order by comparing to stupid examples such as parrot reading)
- Not believe in mandatory 5 banis; they want to remove banis of sri dasam granth sahib. 
- Not believe in sikh scriptures (pre-2015)
- Not believe in Sri Guru Granth Sahib (Post-2015)
- Not believe in Sri Hemkunt Sahib
- Not believe in Sri Panja Sahib
- Not beleive in the work of Panthic Jathabandia of the past such as babbar akali movement in 1920's etc
- Not believe in Naam Simran - They make mockery of repeating of gurmantar "Waheguru... Waheguru..."
- Not believe in Amritvela - They gave example that amritvela is the time for thieves to wake up and do their bad deed
- Not believe in Shaastar - Their gurdwara and school or Headquarter in Ludhiana does not have any shaastar nor khanda on their nishaan sahib flag. 
- Not believe in Shaastar Vidiyaa nor believe in "Right to bear Arms"

There are different types of "Missionaries".

1. SGPC Missionary Colleges - Run by SGPC to train pracharaks. (Though, no one really refers to them as Missionaries)

2. Classical Missionaries - Respected in the Panth. Likes include Prof. Sahib Singh who did Teeka of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and Dasam Baani. (They used to be called Missionaries, but they aren't anymore)

-------

3. Neo-missionaries - Whenever someone says someone is a "Missionary" today, it usually means this. They have been described well by @Sikhi4Ever

They have more of a strict academic approach to the Guru's baani. They're basically "religious communists", if that makes sense. They give no real importance to spirituality. 

The only plus side to them is they stress heavy importance on studying the Guru's baani and not just accepting everything on blind faith.
