Why So Much False Information About Sikhi?

Recommended Posts

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Recently I was seeing something related to Sikhi, just to see what many people actually thought, and I noticed a lot of false information about Sikhs in general, (especially some of whom called themselves Sikhs), a lot of it had to do with Hinduism surprisingly. Why is education for Sikhi this awful? (Do the Pracharks in India not do anything?) Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Examples?

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Look-up any article by a Hindu elitist or a lost Sikh about Sant Jarnail Singh Bhinderwale Ji, and you'd easily realize the bias of false information. (Not a normal Hindu, and hopefully Guru Sahib can overlook the Sikh person's mistake) Many Sikhs believe all religions are equal, (Mistakes from equality of humanity for humanity of religions); some Sikhs believe in the fact that all Sikhi is about is being nice, (which is still an important trait), and that simply being nice will help you. Some of them believe Amrit Vela is unnecessary and useless; while others don't know the benefits of Naam Jaapna. And finally, we have the idea that the 15 BHAGATS were Hindus and Muslims, despite them not doing anything related of the sort. (Bhagat Ramanand and Bhagat Jaidev for example never claimed his caste was superior to others and promoted equality, while Bhagat Farid didn't go and follow the pilgrimage to Mecca, and Bhagat Sadhna became Anti-Halal because Halal didn't have Daya). Basically it's a whole group of things, and sometimes these things are preached by the pracharks, Vaheguru forgive them (Bhul Chul Maaf for if I said anything wrong).

It is quite complex to highlight those occasionally subtle differences without becoming lost in semantics. I just think it's a culture of laziness at times. Some of it might also be mischief making in order to undermine Sikhi. Ultimately, it's the job of Sikhs to get that information out there and ensure it's accurate and verifiable, because if we don't do that, then others with agendas will come along.

There was this really daft ignorant liberal girl who made this picture of guru nanak dev ji with the status caption "before becoming hindu, muslim sikh become human first" and attributed it to guru ji. When in actual fact there is no such quote from Guru ji and the word 'sikh' would have been used in that context anyways because Guru J's followers were known as Sikhs after him and he didnt use that word himself.

I assume you mean the misconception that Sikhi is some sort of amalgamation of Hinduism and Islam.

Hindus today want to market their religion as one of peace and acceptance to pretentious white people by pretending that it is centered around Yoga and Ayurveda, and not casteism [RACISM], sexism and obsessive, pointless rituals. Given that one of the whole points of the very creation of Sikhi was to repudiate these evils at the heart of Hinduism, our existence is somewhat of a threat to their hippy-dippy PR campaign to change the face of their religion, so they try to undermine us by spreading lies.

Hinduism is like that obnoxious high schooler who decides to reinvent himself as a 'cool' kid when he goes to university. The time comes and he moves into his university dorms, eager to impress people with his sophisticated fake personality. But he's horrified when he sees a former schoolmate of his, Sikhi, is also at this university. Sikhi tells everyone some stories from back in the day about what Hinduism is really like, and his plan comes to nothing. Hinduism decides to get revenge by spreading rumours and chatting a load of sh1t against Sikhi, because even though Hinduism is much bigger than Sikhi, he is also a huge coward.

thinking on it , if their heroes and examples are from the mentality of abandoning sach to win on the temporary stage of the Earth what more can we expect ? You can only be as good as your Guru's guidance leads you

This is only so, because, no two Sikhs agree with each other as to the definition of a Sikh! Everyone thinks they know more than the 'other.' You know what they say, too many chefs spoil the broth!! This is exactly what the Sikh kyom is suffering from, too many chefs ..,..,!
