She said the harmonium instrument confused her because she had a feeling that it didnt come from south Asia,   not even many sikhs know that. Had no idea harmonium was introduced to india in 1840 by christian missionaries! 

Table is taught everywhere  but its important sikhs bring back that stringed instruments as well like taus and dilruba. 

Harmonium has become the main instrument in kirtan now.  Nothing wrong with introducing new instruments etc  but in the process of doing that it's important to keep the original instruments too.

There is alot of interesting history between Sikhs and the latin hispanic american continents.

In the 1930s the anti-british imperalist gadar party rebels were based in south america.

Ecuador was the first country in 1986 to formally recognise the government in exile of khalistan and invited 20 million Sikhs to settle there if they wanted to away from indian state persecution.

Belize had many khalistani based supporters.

Brazil has a small but growing Sikh population

Argentina has a small Punjabi Sikh community which has mixed with the locals and still keeping Sikhi alive there

Chile has a small growing Sikh popuation

Mexico has interesting history of 19th century punjabi immigrants who married local women and had kids many of them are now scattered and forgotten their roots and linage but there is now a growing native mexican latino Sikhs who are growing steadily.

Its gurus ji Kirpa, how a girl from a country where no one even knows what sikhi or a sikh is, comes into sikhi just like that.

Yh I read how the early punjabis who moved to that part of the world married Mexican women but they never taught their kids punjabi or kept their kesh.

Big f***n*g deal. Trying bringing your own lookalikes to sikhi first. Yes, I mean the brown people also known as punjabis or indians, for <banned word filter activated> sakes. Another f**k**g outsider with origins in diversity and multicultarsim. Sh**Stop cooing these outsiders into becoming sikhs we are not muslims and not allowed to convert anyone by cooing or otherwise.

got out the wrong side of bed? 

its "brown peoples" choice not to follow sikhi, and its her choice to follow sikhi

Not Punjabi or Indian, I say.  Would you have made the same amount of noise if this had been our girl?

There is alot of opportunity there to convert sikhi to latin america. The abrahamic missionaries are very good at bringing non-believers into their fold.

What is needed is a revolution of Sikhi in latin america. Do away with pushing the 1950s SGPC rehit maryada narrative they need to be khalsa to be a sikh and instead rather push the narrative that focus the mind on gurbani and practise sikhi that way. Pull back the stops that hold people from connecting to Sikhi on mass.

If that's the mentality you are going to move forward in your life, then don't complain when a member of your sikh kaum gets converted. Convert your own to sikhism first.

what you mean by that?

Sikhi is not limited to one group of people it is meant to be spread all over the world.

Nor is Christianity or Islam,  or Hinduism etc don't you know?  Why do you complain,when they convert one of ours' then? They are also doing what we want to do, spread. Live and let live then. Accept the consequences for our actions. Stop complaining.
