No I don't have a problem with Rehat Maryada per se. In fact, I do believe that it is imperative for an organised religion to have a set of rules that should be followed in a disciplined way if that religion is to survive. That being said however, I feel it is important to understand that the decisions made by a group of mortal men sitting in the Akal Takht are sometimes at odds with Gurbani. Too many Sikhs confuse decisions made by ordinary men with actual Gurbani. What me and you, as educated people in 2020 need to understand is the how those groups of ordinary men came to the decision of including a naming ceremony in the Maryada. We know they included it purely because it was already widely practiced among the masses anyway because they had, for hundreds of years as Hindus, been doing it habitually anyway. We're not alone in that. All religions looked at the pagan traditions of their congregation and included those practices in their own religion in order to portray the illusion that the tradition itself always was part of the religion. It's up the educated individual him or herself to see if he or she can reconcile that tradition with what the true scriptures of his or her religion say. I mean don't get me wrong.....If someone wants to get a letter for their baby's name that's perfectly fine. There's nothing wrong in doing that. Equally however, there is nothing wrong in a Sikh believing that spending time cultivating one's soul and character is far more important than having any hang-ups about things as mundane as a name.

- You need to learn more about the establishment and history of the Sikh Rehat Maryada.

- Nothing is compulsory - such as following sikh dharam as well.

- Sri Akal Takht SRM is the most basic code of conduct that all organizations must follow. Adding anything over that is then their own code of conducts. In the end, you need to learn the basics first.

I dont know much but i do know this that there are different maryadas and this akaal takht maryada is a basic small version of maryada . And also yeah there are sooooo many diff rehitnaame including by bhai Nand Lal ji ,and also by the son of bhai mani singh ji (i forget their name) and countless other ,and each maryada is different ,right. then different people have diff. maryadas,infact just as these new jathebandis,and "sects" and organisations started coming up each of them brought in their own maryadas which led to chaos (still is leading to chaos) so yeah it is your marzi as to what maryada u wanna follow,for eg,the dal panth will have a different set of rules and discipline as a part of their maryada the taksal has a different one.And now coming to  this commitee maryada it has kinda isolated many people like for eg sindhis or hindus who believed in sikhi and other such people and nanakpanthis(i think that is what they r called or maybe they are called nanakshahis ,please enlighten bcos i dont know much also can any of y'all please explain to me the difference between nanakshahis and nanakpanthis) and also done some other things different from original sikhi.Yeah i know following sikhi aint compulsory but,if you follow sikhi then the maryada is compulsory.That is what they wanna control everything and standardise everything for their pseduo-political commitee ambitions,these commitee waale,they are defiling sikhi,and Sri Akaal Takht Sahib,colonialisation runs deep within them,and commitee elected jathedaars were never a part of original sikhi and the commitee never existed in OG sikhi and neither did so many sampardais it was panj pyaare rule.its just a big khichdi these days

SGPC SRM is seriously disrespectful to Benti Chaupau, SRM still allows the last 2 lines and Arril to be skipped, this is the cut Benti Chaupai that Teja Bhasauria imposed in Harmandir Sahib.

Sadly, some important organisations such as Budha Dal + Tarna Dal Nihang Singhs weren't present and invited when SRM was discussed.

Also SRM is still in draft form.

So to conclude, there are some serious issues with SRM that haven't been resolved!

What happens to your old name then? or do people keep that as well? 

It will prolly stay within the family (the persons mum dad will call him by his old name) but in his legal documents his new name will be used if he decides to keep it.

    • ok i will try to keep this as short as possible. i wanted to get something off my chest and didnt know where to put it but here goes i wont mention names for privacy reason. my friend we will call him S. I grew up in the same street as S. We were both punjabis and sikhs and our immediate neighbourhood had quite a few punjabis and whites. I met S well playing outside when i was around 10 or 11 during grade 6. his mom and my mom became immediate friends and we would hang out. when we turned 14 he was HEAVY into khalistan movement and loved our culture and religion. he would go Gurdwara and do seva regualry at Nagar kirtan etc. stayed away from smoking drinking and girls and was a very respectable guy. Even though he was a mona he loved our community.  Something changed during the time we turned 17 after highschool we drifted apart but still kept in touch. He started hanging out with a different crowd. These guys werent punjabi but of another group and they got him into crime. From what I hear these guys mentally destroyed him and his self esteem. He never at the gurdwara doesn't go to nagar kirtans and cant remember last time hes even hung around us or even any other apneh for that matter, His mom cries every night and i still get calls here and there from her asking if ive seen him.  I know where he is and what hes up to but i dont want to cause his mom stress. it just hurts me so much what happened to S and i know that if he didn't fall  in with these guys he wouldn't turn out this way. I feel guilty because before this time i got way into the negative side of punjabi culture like partying, girls bhangra etc S was never into these things and I guess he started feeling isolated because I admit we stopped calling /hanging out with him because he would just act awkward around girls and we drifted apart and thats when he started hanging with these guys
    • i hear most pakistanis are barelvi and that the orthodox salafis dont even consider barelvis as proper muslims. its these same barelvis that give sikhs a hard time and are probably the ones who r doing this grooming crap because almost every pakistani mosque even here in canada is a barelvi one. I have only met one orthodox muslim in my life and tbf the guy was very calm and respectable so maybe these barelvis use us as a scapegoat to feel better about themselves?
    • just to add one more thing. This Singh is very strict that degh shud be prepared in sarbloh. If a rehitvaan amritdhari makes degh in sarbloh utensil while japping gurbani, degh becomes amrit.
    • Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh  Very true veerji.Indias time is coming soon.Bhai Rama Singh ji said 3 things will happen to india.A disease will spread,then storms will occur then a war.The disease is already spreading.India got hit by 2 super cyclones and is flooding at the moment.The last thing left is the war.
