Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh This is general a topic, and is here to gauge people's opinion on two issues. First of all thanks to the Sikh Sangat for allowing open air discussions. The first topic I want to address is what I see a growing a trend among Sikhs in the west, UK, Canada, US etc. there is a lot of anti-Hindu sentiment. Now people are understandably against 1984 and this has left a bad taste, but shouldn't we label these people as bad doers and not put all Hindus into that lot. A lot of us don't but the majority of Sikhs hold a grudge. My main point being forget Hindus/Sikh divisions inwards into the panth, develop yourself and the panth. We are our biggest downfall, we tend to focus more on others and not ourselves. Second topic, is the rising use of the word Quom, one only has to go many katha talks or turn on sikh tv channels to see the word now appears more often. What is the cause of this trend? Also as I understand it the word is Arabic/Islamic in nature, one can associate it with tribe or caste, but since when did Sikhi become a tribe. One should know that tribes in Punjab follow similar to the Jati/Clan families e.g. Jat, Sindhi etc. I feel the religion shouldn't use this word, just call it Sikh Panth, Sikhi applies to all. It would be good to understand people's opinions on this. Thanks, Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
