Was Balmiki ji initially a bandit and then discovered God? Because that's what iv read ...

Because the Valmiki community these days get quite triggered/aggressive and volatile on social media if someone does katha of Balmiki ji and mention that he was a bandit before he became a saint. In fact I think it's against the law in Punjab now. 

Certain communities seem to be rewriting the ithiaas of their patron saints.

I read the bhagat history a long time a go from this one Granth.

That is was indeed true. He tried to once rob some religious men who were traveling through the forest. They asked him why he is doing this. He said he needs to provide for his family. They told me that even though you are providing for your family, the bad karma that you get from robbing people only you will have to deal with in the end. The told him that he can go confirm this with his family, if they will share his bad karma. He went back and asked everyone in his family and he was told that they can't share in his bad karma. so when he came back to the religious men he they told him to give up this life and they gave him naam to mediate on. One day he went into a deep trance while mediating which lasted for a long time. his mediation lasted for so long that Ant's started to build their colong around his body. when the religious men came back through the same way to meet valmiki again to see how he was doing they realized that he was in a deep mediation. They got him out the ant colony.

They want their religious figureheads to be viewed as complete, unflawed beings like Guru Sahibs. I think they feel that if their particular divine personalities are seen to have questionable or all-too human origins, it lowers their standing, and makes them seem not-so special next to other communities' religious figures. I understand the logic behind it, but I think it's ill advised. It also inadvertently reveals a sense of inferiority that nobody would've bothered to observe if the facts had been undisturbed.

I'm not knocking any bhagat or similar figure, but i think this is an unfortunate side effect of Modi's social empowerment agenda being channelled in a dodgy direction by people who have gone a tad overboard.  

It's up to them. Nobody wants to be considered lesser than any other group I guess.

It's a bit like how some Ravidassias say that Guru Nanak Dev ji copied from Bhagat Ravidas ji because Bhagat Ravidas ji happened to be born before Guru Nanak Dev ji. They also get really angry when we call him "Bhagat" Ravidas and tell us to call him "Guru" Ravidas.

Last few years there has been a lot of people trying to elevate their saints. They don't realize that the very saints didn't give two hoots about worldly position and hierarchy lol, it pretty much defeats the whole purpose of following these saints. 

Its where the wrong kind of politics and religion mix 

Yeah bro. They're  free to call Bhagat Ravidas Ji Guru if they want to, but trying to force others to do it is tacky to say the least. 

That being said Bhagat Ravidas Ji..is a Bhagat which is still incedible.

Most people, with their perception of time, thinking that everything is evolving for the first time out of the darkness have a hard time conceiving that Sat Dharam and Jot have always been and must be regifted to us in our ignorance. 

It's  unfortunate that the Chamar community has felt forced to seperate because of casteism from Sikhi but it's also unfortunate they've lost context and understansing of Gurbani. 

The Bhakti movement was incredible. The Jot of Guru Nanak Dev Ji was gifted to the world following the Bhakti movement but was not produced by it.

    • Lol. Way to be late to the party there Ravi. 
    • The liberal mafia attacking Amaan Baali because he committed the ultimate sin of standing up for the Sikh community in Kashmir and told the truth of the grooming of Sikh girls. Let's look at the background of these liberals who are now attacking Amaan. Monica Gill - failed model latched on to the Farmers agitation in order to gain more exposure and credibility. On the grooming of the Sikh girls in Kashmir she was solidly on the side of the paedophiles. She promoted the Quint narrative that the Sikh girl was an adult even when the paedophile admitted that he had started to target her when she was 12/13. Her sister apparently 'researched' the grooming of Sikh girls in Kashmir and found 'no evidence'!  Ravi Singh KA - we all know about him and his liberal agenda and his main focus on using the Panth's money to help our enemies and gain him a Nobel prize.  This Angadh Singh Khalsa guy - another liberal mupp.et using the Sikh identity to further the cause of the Jihadis. here's an article about him- his main claim to fame- being a dhimmi and helping in the Kashmiri plan to turn Kashmir into an Islamic state like Afghanistan. What could possibly go wrong for Kashmiri Sikhs when that happens? His views on the grooming of Sikhs - he is 'nuanced'! How Kashmir's Fraught Political Journey Led a Young Sikh Man Into Activism (thewire.in) You can judge the value of a person to the Panth by knowing the background of the people  who are attacking him.       
    • Is that Surrinder Shinda in the video?
    • There is a new Muslim bhangra singer from UK called Raf Saperra. Not only has he made a music video where he is lusting after and flirting with a Sikh girl who has a prominently displayed kada, but the song has been produced by so called Sikh Sukhshinder Shinda and the background of the video is full of so called Sikhs wearing kaday, egging on the Muslim singer to flirt with the Sikh girl and sing about her lustfully. Astonishingly there is an old Baba with a long white dhari and white dastaar in the video as well.  I have not seen one comment on the YouTube page that is concerned about this. I have also noticed that as part of his image in general this singer has avoided highlighting he is a Muslim, only reluctantly alluding to being from West Pakistan during an interview when asked.  Instead our so called Sikh people are all backing him up and featuring in his videos wearing huge kaday while holding alcohol bottles. There is a blurring of lines here with regards to identity which is normally used by this group to take advantage of our people. Our own people are stupidly helping this cause.   There are a few of his bhangra videos which also feature smoking (Muslim Pakistani  culture) which will probably confuse Apne thickos into thinking this is now a normal part of our own culture. They are making bhangra videos without making it clear they are Muslims and subtly putting their own culture into it. What has happened to these people's zameer?   This is the video.
