    That has to be the single most un-educated post i've read in a long while, having a dastaar or having cut hair has nothing to do with what's happened, the point of this is that some visited another country and was kidnapped in broad daylight and is being detained without charge while being subjected to various types of torture all because he runs a website highlighting human rights violations, i'm sorry, but if that happened to anyone, turban or not, we should be protesting. How vigilant do you expect the average person to be, no one expects to be kidnapped in the middle of the day for airing you own opinions on a website in the "largest democracy" in the world. The man's being scapegoated, simple as, having a turban or not is irrelevant.

    Quit talking our your a** 😂 you don't know the man, or what was going on his mind. Mona or not doesn't matter when you're on their radar and they know how you look. Its only a benefit if they have no idea who you are. And let's not kid ourselves, their intelligence knows everyone who is a someone. Key point here: stop assuming.

    I think that if one wants to pursue learning Latin purely for educational purposes then they should go for it.

    What about Gurbani? I never said we should change Gurbani, because we can’t. But we can remove Perso-Arabic influences from our vernacular. And when did I say that we should all begin to speak Hindi and Sanskrit, no that’s a terrible idea. We need to revise Punjabi, and you can call me whatever you like, but I firmly stand by that. Have you forgotten that the very tyrants that killed our Gurus, the Sahibzaades, slaughtered our men, our women, and children, sold our ancestors as slaves, pillaged our land for centuries imposed Perso-Arabic influences onto our language. If we have any ounce of self respect, we should purge those influences from our language. How am I demoting Punjabi? How am I saying we should stray away from Gurmukhi? In fact if you read any of my other threads you will realize I advocate further development of Gurmukhi and Punjabi. Why are you accusing me of things that I am opposed against in the first place?

    I began to realize, albeit a bit too late, that there really wasn’t any point in arguing with Jagsaw any further. But I gave the poster some benefit of doubt. But thank you for reassuring me that I wasn’t wrong in my judgment.

    Exactly. To be proud of one's language we should strive to speak words from our own language. Rabb is a commonly heard word in our community, but many do not know that it is Arabic. We can use indigineous words such as Ishwar or Parmatma instead during daily discourse. It's actively trying to bring back words that we used but were forced to extinction in our language because of violent invaders.

    Well what was spoken before Pali? Sanskrit! Just because I have a different opinion from yours doesn’t mean that mine is stupid. I actually have a valid arguement while yours is vapid. Why is it that the Zafarnama is the only piece purely written in Farsi, because it was a letter addressed to Aurangzeb - a Mughal who only spoke the language of the court, Farsi. And I’m not saying go all RSS and remove Perso-Arabic words from Gurbani, I’m just saying remove it from our present day lexicon, because that influence isn’t something to be proud of. You mention Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh, yet you completely missed the point of it. It was written to preserve Farsi from Arabic influence, it was an act of upholding a community’s self-respect that was under attack from foreign invaders. And here you are saying that the removal of violent foreign influence on our language is a “stupid argument”. More than half of the commonly used words in Punjabi stem from Sanskrit, not Farsi. And Arabic has had far more influence in Punjabi than Farsi, so what you have stated is incorrect. We have very little Farsi influence on our language, which many are unaware of. So I really don’t see what you’re trying to get at. Where do you guys get your information from? Sanskrit, an Indo-Aryan language that is almost mutually intelligible from Avestan, used by the ancient Iranian-Aryans is now based on a Dravidian language, Tamil. On top of that you link a biased website, why not link a more neutral one. You gotta be kidding me man. Punjabi has more Dravidian influence than Sanskrit has and here you are saying that Sanskrit is a made up language by Pandits that aped Tamil. Funny. You’re the one that needs to chill and stop spreading inaccurate information.

    Informal discussion or not, if I or anyone fails to understand what you’ve written in the first place, then there’s no point in writing at all as you won’t be able to get your arguments across. So whatever pride you take in not editing or making your argument understandable is in my opinion due to plain ignorance. How about instead of calling me an imbecile or fool, you back up your claims with relevant sources. Show me one relevant article that claims Sanskrit arose from Prakrit. You keep on harping about Sikhs in Punjab going through a process of “Sanskritization”; which I disagree with, no ones bringing back Sanskrit, Hindus love their Hindi now, yet I’ve never even lived in Punjab a single day of my life. I was born and raised in the West, so how did I go through “Sanskritization”. To deny that Punjabi comes from Sanskrit is to deny your heritage. Proto-Indo European language split into many languages of which we know there is Vedic Sanskrit and Old Persian. Vedic Sanskrit is nearly 5000 years old with it being spoken around 2000 BCE, where as Punjabi really emerged around 700 AD, so how exactly did Prakrit lead to Sanskrit? Can you please provide sources?

    Rightly said, without Brahmgian one cannot be a Brahmin. And restricting the flow of knowledge to other people is not reflective of the actions of a Brahmgiani. It is unfair, unjust and reflective of narrow-mindedness.

    It’s pure BS used to put down non-Brahmins.

    And you were told right, Pali is a Prakrit language, therefore an ancestor of Punjabi. Hindu Brahmins restricted Sanskrit, and that is how Prakrit languages derived in the first place. They were more natural, or as the Brahmins would say it, corrupted forms of Sanskrit. But the Vedic Indo-Aryans were the original speakers of Sanskrit, not the Hindus who come after the Vedic era, and those Indo-Aryans were our ancestors, therefore it’s our language too.

    Agreed with the fact that the users posts are verging on vulgarity, and a religious forum would be the last place to post these. I personally think if any individual has any questions about sexuality, they should be discussed on this forum, but making crude and borderline sexual remarks on a religious site is very disparaging behaviour. I don’t have anything against AjeetSinghPunjabi, and don’t want to offend him, but I ask that he please refrain from posting overtly vulgar and inappropriate remarks.

    Firstly, what you have written is factually incorrect. Sanskrit is a “refined” version of the Proto-Indo-European (PIE) language. And by the way it’s Prakrit, not “Prakhit.” Prakrit means “natural, vernacular” a language that is more informal than the liturgical Sanskrit, and Prakrit stems from Sanskrit, and not the other way around like you’ve mentioned. Apabrahmsa is a type of Prakrit, and Punjabi is a type of Apabrahmsa, ergo Punjabi is derived from Prakrit which itself is derived from Sanskrit, meaning that Sanskrit outdates Punjabi. Secondly, since when do Hindus have a monopoly on Sanskrit, how is it a Hindu language? Sanskrit is the language of the ancient Indo-Aryans who founded the Vedic religion, individuals that are our ancestors. Just because Hindus use Sanskrit in their religious texts doesn’t mean that they own the language.

    You are chatting about your gay preferences on the wrong site, this forum is for promoting Sikhi, teaching others and trying to lead by example. Without being graphic, but when your getting bent over by some 'haircut' dude, with your own kesh all over the place, im sure you are doing besti on all of us. I find your posts disgusting and that isnt because I am homphobic, even if you said the same about girls I think your messed up for chatting this gandh on a Sikhi forum.

    bro im not homphobic but for someone like who seems to have a lot of knowledge on sikhi, who constantly speaks against hindus, someone who seems concerned by the state of modern day punjab its very contradicting that your gay with a preference to hindu and muslim men, especially due to their hair being cut.

    From reading your previous posts, I thought you said your homosexual? So you mean you would marry a muslim guy as opposed to a hindu man?

    So your basing all Hindu and Hindu- Sikh marriages about this this incident and your personal experience living in Mumbai which is the home of RSS/Hindvita (or whatever they are called ). Let me turn this around into a positive view against your negative view based on my experience. My uncle who is from Hindu background (Hindu Bharmin) married a Sikh women (arrange marriage) a few years later my Uncle become Amritdhari Sikh, His son and daughter are both Amritdhari Sikh,and proudly wear a dastar. There a few Hindu-Sikh marriages in my family which are going well One could say that if person visit a Gudwara and bows down to the Sri guru Granth Shaib they are Sikh no matter what there surname or religious background is. I dot not consider myself a non Sikh even thou by name I am Hindu Bharmin but my beliefs and culture is more inline with Sikhs. Even thou I am not fully religious I know more about Sikhism then the average Sikh. Do i think its right for me to marry a Sikhg Girl ? yes because of knowledge of Sikhi and my beliefs towards Sikhisim (like i said before i do not consider myself a non Sikh.) I would want my kids to follow and learn more about Sikhism and Punjabi culture. I would more likely have more trouble marrying a strict Hindu as they disagree with my religious views etc, Now they are Sikhs who are just Sikhs by Name. The smoke weed, get intoxicated know nothing about Sikhi. they are like "yo blood I am Sikh yo look at my blinked out Khanda neckless Jatt for for life you get me fam " these kind of Sikhs are more problem and danger to Sikhi and could ruin sikh families. However where I do agree your point against marrying a Hindu if the Hindu family has no knowledge of Sikhi, never been to Gudwara, unwilling to bow down to Sri Guru Granth Shaib and would want to convert there wife/Husband to Hinduism. Name means nothing its whats in the heart that counts . Just look at Bhai Mati Das for an example.

    There is no harm in having caste. It's just a title of your forefathers and nothing else. The main problem within Sikhism is caste based discrimination. Try to work on getting rid of caste based prejudice, which is the main concern, Sikh society facing at this time. We are Sikhs and everyone is our brothers/sister.

    In my personal experience , as far as I have seen, sikh men who marry hindu women end up ruining sikhi in their families , as the son ends up being either a mona or sardar with trimmed beard OR even if he's a "gursikh" , he will mix vedic stuff with sikhi and that leads to often underestimated DIRE consequences for the panth as well ! As a child gets its sanskaar from a mother's womb, a hindu mother will invariably give birth to a hindu son, even if he's you know a turbaned guy. Notable examples include harbhajan singh puri , alias , yogi bhajan . We all know the mess he has created for us to clean . I would never ever marry a hindu woman if i had to marry . I would rather marry a muslee (funny how these are the ones stigmatized by the sikh community worldwide while the hindus get an open hand among sikhs) What is this cult created by yogi bhajan . Was he a hindutva guy .

    These haircut boys are really hot. Its not considered a "sex toy" when both parties enjoy it.

    LOL , if you read my post properly its more about the kids out of such marriages, not the marriage itself that I am opposed to . I wish I could marry , but thats not an option I have. I have had crushes on both hindu and muslim men and yes one sikh man too. He was a saabat soorat gursikh. But I like haircut guys more . I am just fascinated by their hair . I would date any hot dude , although most hotties here are hindu or muslim guys that i adore so much.
