    Haha I wonder that too myself sometimes but it all comes down to IQ and environmental upbringing also family/peers can have an impact too on influence. The lower the intelligence and education the easier they are to fool and convert to superstitious beliefs like RSS hindtuva/ abrahamic cults ( Christianity-Islam-Judaism) and hindu punjabi nonsense dehra godman personality cults. Atheism is also another mental disorder that refuses to acknowledge a supreme intelligent design creator to the intelligently designed creation. We are so lucky to be Sikhs in the great grand scheme of things.

    Yup especially with so many wars and conflicts it has engaged in since its inception. Millions of innocent civilians murdered under its military, economic and political puppet masters. They are no better than other mass murdering regimes of world history possibly much worse. Though they have brouight good in the world through science and tech they have also brought alot of unwarranted death and destruction to mostly non-white peoples of the world. The world isn't fooled any more, more people have awoke to the real facts of who causes wars (oligarch banksters) and for whose benefits (oligarch banksters). And as we all know all empires eventually decline and perish in the pages of history eventually. Anglo-American Western empire too will come to an end sooner or later either through a massive natural diaster event or though its own undoings possibly through civil wars and infighting between secessionist movements and states.

    Don't think he is genuine, sounds more like a non-sikh troll trying to provoke something Either way I've ignored his pm messages. There's lots of strange non-sikhs on this forum with different agenda's we should out and identify them if they don't do so themselves on the forum.

    Sikh community in Connecticut run unique Vaisakhi billboard campaign Staff Writer, Posted On : April 10, 2017 5:50 pm NEW YORK: A Vaisakhi billboard campaign was run by Sikh Sewak Society International all over Connecticut, to mark the festival of Vaisakhi and create awareness of Sikhs and their religion Sikhism. The campaign mainly focused in Norwich, Montville, Lisbon and New London County areas, in which they rented bus shelters locations by Lamar Company to educate fellow Americans about Sikhism and Vasakhi. The billboards mainly focus on “Happy Vaisakhi” and “National Sikh Day” messages with the picture of a turbaned Sikh and website www.sikhs.org The billboard pictures of Sikhs included Army officer “Kamal Kalsi” in his camouflage turban, “Sanatam Kaur Khalsa” in kesgi (turban), fashion designer Waris Aluwalia and other Sikhs who are successfully contributing in society. Other pictures used were of Sikh boys with wearing patka (cloth children use to cover their head). Swaranjit Singh Khalsa, Member, Sikh Sewak Society International, said, “Our main goal is to make our fellow Americans feel comfortable when they see turbaned Sikh. They should know we are Sikhs and we have our distinct identity. They should know we are from Punjab state which is in India and Sikhism is not branch of any other religion”. Khalsa added, “It is very important that everyone should know that message of Guru Nanak Dev ji was for whole mankind and not for one faith and Sikhs are follwers of Guru Nanak”. A total of 100 signs were posted to create Sikh awareness with focus on lines that “99% people in America who tie Turban are Sikhs and not anyone else”. “Our big Sikh organization like United Sikhs, SALDEF, Sikh Coalition etc. are doing great job in Sikh Awareness but it’s never enough. This is duty of each and every Sikh to help them as well as organize activities on their own to create Sikh awareness,” sdaid Khalsa. The billboards were designed by Rootsgear company, based in New Jersey. Swaranjit Singh Khalsa also requested all Gurudwara Parbandak Committees to take initiative and participate in Sikh awareness activities.

    I will grant you that the campaign creators did not intend to explain the religious connotations of Vaisakhi, because they don't mention Vaisakhi other than in the heading. However, that's not to say that they focus on social connotations of the Punjabi harvest festival -- because they absolutely don't. What they do do, on the other hand, is to explain some very basic information about Sikhism. Here's the text: That's the entirety of the text. Can you point out which sentence encourages drunken fake-bhangra dancing (or even sober real-bhangra dancing)?

    What's apologetic about it, specifically? Did you click through to read the text in the high-resolution photos? The text, as I mentioned above, is 90-98% good. If the question is "Do Americans know who Sikhs are?", then the answer would generally be no. It's unfair to assume that Americans should be knowledgeable about a people (Sikhs) who are less than 1/2 of one percent of the world's population, and that too with small numbers and no long history of mass presence in the US. (Quick, tell me all you know about the people of Vanuatu -- without cheating by checking Wikipedia.) If you were in the US as a black person, and someone came upon you wearing a white robe and a pointy hat, I am quite sure you would think they were "out to get you" And the infamous picture of Osama in a white turban, very widely published, did not help. Until we educate people, as this campaign does, that 99% of turban-wearers in the US are Sikhs, it would be normal for Americans to assume that turban-wearers are "out to get them". Thirdly, our Sikh organizations never, to my knowledge, have said "We are not Muslims". This campaign, though, actually has the temerity to say that Sikhs are not a branch of any other faith, which is why I'm generally supportive of it.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. The reason we fall into kaam is because we thing it is ok. After watching a video we fall right into it's deadly trap. Trying to fight back makes it a bit worse and may give you urges to masturbate. Next time you go to the Gurdwara do some seva. Jaap Waheguru.

    I think it's fair to say the Vaisakhi being promoted in the posters is the one that has precedence in crop-gathering, end-of-winter, let's-have-a-drink-and-a-dance version of events. I seriously doubt any of the individuals who created this campaign of awareness wish to confidently explain the religious connotations of Vaisakhi. That's what happens when the followers of a faith gradually begin to eschew their religious beliefs in favour of a watered-down secular existence that makes their lives apparently that much less of a "hassle." Although the guy who's interviewed above is thankfully mentioning the religious aspects, so that's a good thing. Ultimately, any awareness is a good thing, but I'm not sure I'm pleased about the implied apologetic tone of the campaign. Are Americans really that thick and ignorant that they assume everyone with a beard and turban is out to get them?

    One Dhobi (washerman) from Gujarat One Jheer (water carrier) from Orissa One Nai (barber) from Karnataka One Gujjar (goatherd) from Hastinapur + one Labana (salt carrier) from Sialkot. The Panj Pyare. Manas ki jaath sabhe ek hi pehchaan bo. Recognise the human race as one. Blessings for a meaningful Vaisakhi. Praying that she marries you Gurvir Singh

    You also have not responded to my response on the guy's beard: that is apparent that his beard is glued to his faced, but it is not at all apparent he cut his beard. In fact, you just can't glue a cut beard to your face. It doesn't work. Cut beard hairs stick out like porcupine needles. If you want to argue that using Fixo is not in accordance with traditional Sikh maryada, that's fine. But please don't slander the guy as patit when you don't have proof for that.

    You still have not responded to my post above. While it certainly Sikh maryada to cover your hair, the fact is the lady in the picture accurately represents upwards of 90% of our people. I may not like that, but it's still a fact. Only a minority of Sikhs are Amritdhari. Of those a vast majority of women don't wear a turban. Just guessing here, but I'd say 85% of non-turban Amritdhari women are hair-uncovered (except for the Gurdwara) in day-to-day life. A further perhaps 5-10% try to keep chunnies on their heads, while maybe 5-10% are turban-wearing. Now, if the vast majority of Sikh women covered their heads or wore turbans, it would highly exceptional for the makers of this poster to depict an uncovered women. But they don't, so it's not.

    Note that the first time you said it, you didn't use "these": You said it like you're not a Punjabi yourself. Just using "these" doesn't mean you're not promoting hatred towards an ethnic group. You can commonly hear racists saying stuff like "these black people are out of control!".

    I think the point is not to tell about Baisakhi to people who already know who Sikhs are but rather to tell people who Sikhs are in the first place. The text they have written is between 90% to 98% good. I don't think it can be ascertained from the photo he's cut his beard, only that it's a gelled and tied beard. Huh? 99% of Sikhs, even Amritdhari Sikhs, are not dumalla-wearing, blue-chola-wearing Singhs without pajamas and with a 3-ft kirpan and 4 other shastars. Are you not a Punjabi?

    Nice effort by the Connecticut Sikhs. I'm always amazed that our advocacy organizations refuse to say "We're not Muslims". The reason for this, I think, is that these organizations have become or see them selves as SJW organizations. These posters don't mention Islam by name, but do say that we're not a part of any other faith, we follow Guru Nanak from Punjab region of South Asia, and that 99% of the people with turbans in the US are Sikh. Minor quibble: Most non-desi people don't know what "South Asia" is, so it might have been better to say "India". I understand that the part of Punjab that Guru Nanak Ji was from is now in Pakistan, but "India" doesn't only signify the "Republic of India" (created in 1947), but also a subcontinent, which was always there -- similar to how "Europe" does not mean just the European Union, but also a continent.

    Gurbani say Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji is the Guru and God. The message, Gurbani is the Guru and God. The Gurus are the message. The messengers who were sent by God were people like Jesus and Mohammed and Krishna. None of these agents/messengers were able to deliver Gurbani, the message. Therefore vaheguru took sargun form as Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji. Gurbani clearly says Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji is the Guru and Vaheguru. Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji is worshipped. Sikhs bowed down to him and sang his praises in the form of Gurbani. Why do you misquote Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib ji? He says clearly God and I are one and the same. Your Christian teachings can't understand Gurbani and be applied to interpret Gurbani. Your premises have been proven to be false so your conclusion does not hold to be true. Folks we have a Jehovah witness on this site trying to disguise himself as a Sikh. Gurbani says Vaheguru does all so why would he do any different? You are deeply troubled by duality and can't see his hukam at work. This creation is in Vaheguru and does not exist outside. I know you Jehovah witnesses like to believe in a man in the sky fighting the devil but there is only one who has no attributes and has all attributes. Also take the time out of your troubled life and learn the definition of a metaphor.

    This doesn't make sense, if Bhai Mani Singh Ji had access to this bir then why was he looking for parts of Dasam granth mentioned in the letter to Mata Sundri Ji.
