They preach wrong version of sikhism in order to build a multimillion dollar empire wherever they can find or found, easily duped unsophisticated dimwits, insecure enough to believe just about anythin

Never understood why these people are referred to as missionaries. I've come to see them as Sikh secularists; supporting Sikh political and social aims but lacking in the spirituality of the belief sy

sounds a bit like NKJ and Dhadrianwale

Who are the sikh missionaries? I was gnna ask this    What does sikh missionaries mean?  I always hear people talking about them   but I dnt know who they are...   what are they

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.

    • Shalom Sri Akal... I mean, Sat Sri Akal, fellow Sikh brothers and sisters. 😅
    • That happened to me once. I did an additional Jap Ji Sahib for a few days. It was an accident. Make amends according to your conscience, and move on.
    • There is simply no reason to do agan bhet (tribute to the fire). There are ways of repairing books. (Yeah, I know Gutka Sahib is not a mere book, but I'm just talking about the technology of binding.) I have no clue why your soul doesn't agree to do path on that Gutka Sahib. Do you think it has been sullied? Even if you wrote Gurbani on something that was ritually impure, that would make it pure: ਤਰ ਤਾਰਿ ਅਪਵਿਤ੍ਰ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੀਐ ਰੇ ਜੈਸੇ ਕਾਗਰਾ ਕਰਤ ਬੀਚਾਰੰ ॥ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਾਗਉਤੁ ਲਿਖੀਐ ਤਿਹ ਊਪਰੇ ਪੂਜੀਐ ਕਰਿ ਨਮਸਕਾਰੰ ॥੨॥ The palmyra palm tree is considered as impure and so are deemed its leaves to be. But if the Lord's praise be written on it, we worship it and bow before it. p1293   Similarly, Guest Komal, for whatever you think the pages of the Gutka Sahib became "impure" by falling on the ground, it is still pure. Get it out of your head. The very Gurbani you're reciting says so. This is not to say that you should throw dirt on purpose on a Gutka sahib. It is only to say you shouldn't burn a Gutka for your mistake.
    • 1. Beggars can't be choosers. I'll take what we can get. I'm actually fine with numbers.  Yeah, so many of them have no clue what Gurbani says, but as long as they, in their minds, "ਮੰਨ" Guru Granth Sahib ji, that's good enough for me. Because who am I to say I'm any better than them? ਹਉ ਅਪਰਾਧੀ ਗੁਨਹਗਾਰ ਹਉ ਬੇਮੁਖ ਮੰਦਾ॥ ਚੋਰੁ ਯਾਰੁ ਜੂਆਰਿ ਹਉ ਪਰ ਘਰਿ ਜੋਹੰਦਾ॥ I am a criminal, a sinner, evil and apostate. I am a thief, adulterer; gambler who always keeps his eye upon other's household. Vaar Bhai Gurdas ji 36, Pauri 21   2. I'm pleased to be part of a Panth which encouraged people to join it for the love of Guru Nanak ji, instead of being forced to (by various means) like the Abrahamics.   3. If you're in the company of non-practicing Sikhs, they'll generally let you do your thing (Nitnem, Reharas, whatever). It's not like you're asking "Hey, mind if I do Namaz?" Or "I'm fasting for Ramadan". You're part of the same religion, though they're not strict about it. 4. What the Mullahs do is, first they get you into their religion. Then they indoctrinate the kids into Jihad. Why can't we do the same (indoctrinate into Bhagti, not Jihad)?
    • But that's not what he was saying. He was saying that certain among us not only compromised with maryada while working for the new masters, but also -during off hours,  -after retiring from service, and -worst of all, passed on those compromises to following generations as a kind of baseline   The only true baseline for maryada is the maryada of Guru Gobind Singh ji.
