the population of sikhs is rising but you have factor in the ones that mature and go abroad , besides they hide us all the time by lumping us in with buddhists and jains , same trick employed in all other countries which is disgusting considering we number more than the jewish population worldwide.
my take is' hum do humare do' istotally irrelevant for sikhs as we are barely replacing numbers and is it not our responsibility to counter balance the adharmi lok and increase the number of good people going into the future of the world ?
Talking to my Mum and Masi ji about numbers of siblings in previous generations it was only two generations back that people were having kids in averages of 7
myself - 4: 3 boys 1 girl
mother - 4: 2boys 2 girls
nani - 7: 5 boys 2 girls
dadi - 5: 4 boys 1 girl
pad nani - 6 4 boys 2 girls
sard nani - 10 : 9 boys 1girl
This false dialogue that sikhs are less fertile , is bogus they are simply being 'good little citizens' and stopping at one or two .
it is based on the level of paranoia exhibited by a minority group that had been rejected by their own tribes until they took up the sword and started murdering their bretheren , a trend they has never stopped until the present day . It is ridiculous to justify that outlook now, as they are not hounded down except in one country in the world at the mo China and that is more to do with the CCP flexing .
not in the amounts they want to claim , the bulk comes via sea direct from afghan via Iranian waters to Gujarat. Think about it the border has areas loaded with landmines in between fields and the actual border points are doubly manned in Punjab its a lot harder to sneak large shipments like three metric tonnes at a time
