Punjabis and Tamils are so different, yet similar in many ways. Culturally and ethnically we're so different, yet the troubles we have faced, atleast since independence, are so similar. 

Tamils were persecuted by the Congress for trying to help their persecuted Tamil brethren in Srilanka. Indian government declared them terrorists. Indian army started murdering them and raped their women. This was happening around the same time as our struggle in Punjab. 

Hindi speaking government has also been trying to push Hindi language and culture on South Indians for a very long time now, just how they have been pushing it on us. 

The South has seen separatist movements. 

And at present we face the same issues like the farming crisis and Christian missionaries converting the locals. 

It would be great if they come into the fold of Sikhi. 

This is why Sikh leaders should have been preaching Sikhi in various different Indian languages in different parts of India and very long time ago! But they just don't care. 

I've known many Srilankan Tamils. Humble people, really chilled and laid back. Unlike North Indian Hindi speakers who have this constant triggered and angry face and attitude. 

I knew a few Sri Lankan Tamils. One colleague of mine told me how young Tamil youths went "missing"

Sounds awfully familiar...

Sri Lankan Tamils cannot stand Indian Tamils particularly ones from Chennai. It's because they are "brahmins".

If Sikhi is spreading and these people are interested, then perhaps some Sikh group/organisations should look into this ? 

Like how Sikhs have been working with the Sikligar/vanjara Sikhs. They've done some great work over the years. A Gurdwara has been built in Nepal for the Sikhs there and a Granthi Singh from Punjab stays with them and teaches bani. 

I think it will be quite a challenge, especially with the language, Tamils don't even speak Hindi. But if there is interest in Sikhi among these people, then someone should do something about it.

There are a few videos of Tamil Sikh women on youtube.

there is a community of Tamil speaking sikhs from Punjab out there , just need to get them on board to help increase commincation and outreach. From what I have read Tamils are more amenable to Guru ji's message of equality and brotherhood .

    • The uploader of a video can choose not to monetise it. My opinion is that unless the shabad or the katha is being performed by the uploader or a representative on their behalf, getting ad money for someone else's efforts is theft. There's tonnes of Gurbani channels on YouTube that make money for just uploading CDs of shabads.
    • I've been seeing this more and more recently,  in middle of Paath or Shabad an advert will just pop up throwing me off completely when concentrating. I always thought its very bad to monetize Gurbani,  but then again it could be YouTube themselves. But either way wish it stops, I don't mind it on Katha's but really annoying in Paath and Shabad. Anyways rant over lol
    • 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.
