Waheguru ji ka khalsa
Waheguru ji ki fateh

We think that it is now the time where SikhSangat should be passed down to the young generation who are capable of running it well. We are in thinking stage of passing it down by next year. The founders (2 of us) are now in late 30's and are busy with jobs, family and other social work. We are not like of our old generation type folks who wants to keep control of things forever. We are also willing to handover it to the capable Organization. Of course there will be some conditions such; takeover person/org must have proven good panthic record and 100% partial (ex. not exclusively belonging to one jathabandi etc..), not a missionary of course. 

Just an idea...

What are the views of forum members? No step to be taken without sangat's opinion.

Stay in Chardikala

Veerji maybe you could chose some people and then create a poll ,that ends on 31 dec 2020 for example, so that the sangat can vote and decide who they feel is worthy of the position.

Bhul Chuk Maf 😀🙏

Wrong move. Anonymous internet polls skew reality. Most people will just troll or vote for themselves.

The admins should decide.

wjkk wjkf sangat ji

There are many active members of this forum. one of us should come forward to do this sewa. instead of getting someone from outside. Admin and few long term members can decide this wisely. 

note:- I am not very good at computer or internet and stuff, otherwise I would have raise my hand for this Sewa.

I am thankful to the current Admin for doing this Sewa.

I won't derail the topic, but to answer the question, it's a human to desire to belong to something exclusive. Long-term, from a Sikh perspective, it weakens the overarching super-structure instead of strengthening it. How? Because it allows other non-benevolent factions to emerge (either organically through well-meaning albeit misguided personalities OR entities and groups with an insidious agenda designed to disrupt and fracture) who argue their legitimacy; that they are as justifiable in their existence as the earlier groups. With factions comes conflict. Job done.

I would be opening a can of worms here but then again isn't it the way of nature to create divergences and "forking" . Forking is a term I use from software development lol wherein one source code base is taken up by two different teams working on it parallely and after s time we end up with two different products , sometimes with different features added. This is again an extension of real life natural analogy in which members of  one species separated by some barrier, say a mountain ridge will end up evolving into 2 different species given enough time to pass. 

It's interesting to note the effects of same principle on religious communities. The one I feel resonates closest with Sikhs are the Jews (let's ignore usury for a moment lol) but jews are akin to Sikhs in the sense of chronic historical persecution, exodus and spread of their diaspora around the globe. It exile of Jews lasted for 2 thousand years and we see there are various sects : hasidic, Ashkenazi , haredi etc etc . 

Sikhs have only been migrating since atmost 100 yrs. I wonder how will it be with us in long term though I pray it isn't such a long exile for Sikhs.

We're nothing like them, bro. To compare us to them is an insult to us. Our religion's dharmic roots are unquestionably sublime. They, as many are coming to suspect, are silent worshippers of Lucifer (the fallen angel), and not the "God" humanity assumes is the Oneness that created everything. But I'm not going into that here.

Jews are not the same as Sikhs. 

The dynamics are different.

    • There are so many different denominations of Christianity but the church is Pentacostalist. I have heard of it, but never knew what it actually is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentecostalism This particular brand of Christianity is not really about the bible, but it seems to be more believing in the spirit of Jesus and uttering words or something and baptisms. I have provided the link, but it would be interesting that other than the money/bribe aspect, what kind of things would entice Punjabis into Pentacostalism. This whispering uttering of certain words and having spirits entering you and excorcising spirits seem to be very popular in Sub-Saharan Africa, sounds very shamanistic. From a Punjabi context, what existing practices would find similarity with this brand of Christianity that Punjabis would be enticed.
    • Well, instead of hiding behind anonymous votes like a bunch of cowards, they should come out and say it straight. Though I suppose these "naa-mard" wouldn't have a problem if this happened to their sister or daughter.  But coming back to the original post, this unfortunately isn't an isolated case. This is why in Afghanistan, Sikh and Hindu girls are married off very young, because there are a fair few in the Muslim majority with a paedophile mindset who would think it's ok to kidnap an underage unmarried non-muslim girl and "marry" her. 
    • Standing up and for ur comrades in arms is also a good quality, that turns to peer pressure and cowardiceness.  But its not only police who are guilty of it. Moh attacks everyone. People will lie to protect their family, their cult, their religion and their brothers in arms.  In fact, thats what happened in panjab during kharkoo (militant) times. If you read Khalistan by cynthia mehmoud, that was the only crime she could find done by sikh seperatists. That one sikh would take bombs into crowded marketplaces to kill hindus, and none of the members of his team condemned him. She asked them if it was wrong to kill innocents, they said yes. But they wouldn't comdemn him. They said he is one of ours, a brother.  Panjabi Sikh people will be the last to support any ideological movement. Because they have suffered from ideology alot. First in 1947, they were promised a  better nation, just for sikhs. And how many innocent sikhs got butchered? Then in 1984 to 1995, while the kharkhoos and rebels enjoyed glorius shaheedis, it was the common folk who suffered dehydration, curfews, torture, army rule, becoming orphans and a loss of economy. Most sikhs at heart are secularist and scared stiff of religious ideologues who can ignite another doomed revolution and entice their children to early death.  That is why most sikh people judge movements by their effect on the common people not their ideology. It doesnt matter what equalities are promised,.what wrongs will be righted, look at the actions. So to sikhs, BLM is terrible. It comes for their  businesses and livelihood. And one cant even try to defend against the looters:  https://anncoulter.com/2020/09/23/innocent-until-proven-trump-supporterxxxx/ Thats the general panjabi thought about BLM. Heres mine: i support Black Lives Matter Too. That was the original name by the founders. I think it makes a lot more sense. Also im after the truth, but between the nbc and cbc whitewashing and fox news fearmongering, its hard to know whats true. I dont want to be lead by the mainstream media which is supporting ppl like biden, using all this unrest to paint trump bad. Its been wrong about the russian fraud, to trump impeachement to so many things. They have been calling the protest peaceful. Big games are afoot and i dont want to be a pawn. First the media was like social distancing. Shut down gurudware and churches. Then they allow and encourage ppl to attend these huge protests.which even though they included looting and burning were called peaceful. They wont condemn anything, even though many videos show black people angry cuz their kids got shot and killed, their businesses looted. One one sided narrative is being pushed and of anyone even criticizes a little bit they are canceled with shouts of racism.  So while i support BLMT, i wont let that turn me into a passive bystander. Its not only the end that matters, its also the means to get there.  Anyone can commit crimes under a movement, so be vigilant. A protest can easily be turned into a mob. And a mob is dangerous especially if it inevitably goes to loot rich places. As sikhs are rich, and have businesses and big houses, they can be a target. As the koreans were in LA riots. Nobody supported the koreans. The media and artists celebrated the rioters. But the koreans who had to defend their homes and stores with guns were all alone during the riots and the damages too. Also the rodney king riots, did they solve anything?  Will these protests? In the beginning BLM was smart. They knew doing peaceful protests werent gonna do anything. Ppl and governmwnts only pay attention when property is involved. So they were smart, they tartgeted police departments, governemnt buildings.and even big stores were ok.  And in war and big movements sometimes bystanders get hurt. I mean it was the sikhs tweeting 17 better 10,000 in support of rajoana. That the 17 bystanders killed in suicide bombing by rajoana was good because the guy who was killed wouldve killed many more sikhs. So i understand if some innocents get killed or some sikh businesses looted. What i dont like about BLM is thats its becoming cult like. The media wont report anything true about riots vs peaceful protests or anything negative, and if anyone is critical they are canceled. These are not just fox news talking points i have noticed it. Shutting down disagreements, hiding the truth is leading to propaganda and authoritarianism. That is more worrisome than racism.
