NSFW sikh gangs portrayed as rapists on an Indian Hindi Amazon Prime Video Police Cops drama show "Paatal Lok". The gangs include gatra wearing Amritdhari Singhs!


Recommended Posts

I forgot to post this during covid. This is alarming as they are trying to portay amritdharis in such a disgusting way, on a hindi drama! The act isn't being done by an amritdhari, but still a sardar type person and the amritdharis are part of the gang that is watching!

I feel like there was some anti-sikh sentiment and is dangerous as it came to air in 2020, during the big farmer kisaan andolan rallies in Delhi!

The scene is not graphic and only a few seconds, so kind of NSFW.

this is on season 1 episode 3! For context watch from 13:50-18:00

I haven't watched the entire series, but just from 13 minutes onwards. 

What happens is that one young man cuts up or kills three young men. The 10 or so men from the village come and rape the killer's mother. 

Honestly, wasn't Poonam Dhillon (the actress who plays the mother) ashamed to film the scene? The scence could have just been portrayed only with audio and the reactions of the killer's father.

While the killer is portrayed as a mona and the victims as keshadhari, the killer's father is portrayed as keshadhari, too. So it's not a Hindu-Sikh conflict, apparently.

decided to research this online and there has been discussions about this:

https://www.theweek.in/news/entertainment/2020/05/23/paatal-lok-anushka-sharma-slammed-showing-sikhs-as-rapists.htm

While some are calling for the banning of the series, I don't know if that's going to happen.

I do think we might explore bans on the other end: I.e., the actors.

Whether they were Sikhs or not, weren't they ashamed to portray religious Sikhs as participating in such acts? We can explore social boycotts of the actors and also questioning them in social media and other places. If they get enough pushback, the next actor who is asked to portray such a scene may have second thoughts.

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
