I cant believe this garbage. This is exactly why we need to stop intermarriages. They are not allowed in sikhi, and i hate how people are spoiing the sikhi name.
Some passages from the whole
Hinduism and Sikhism are much more individualistic and less formal religions than Christianity, Islam or Judaism, with less reliance on the words of scriptures or priests, so perpetrators from these communities are not inclined to justify their violence using texts, as they do in other religions, local anti-violence advocates say.
Advocates sounding the alarm over the level of abuse of Hindu and Sikh women say that in many communities, all-male clergy fear they will offend men, which makes them reticent about confronting a culture of "male entitlement" and holding perpetrators of family violence to account.
While Sikhism and Hinduism are distinct religions, there is intermingling among members of these faith communities which both originated in the Indian sub-continent and share historical practices affecting women's roles and status in society, including dowry-giving.
The entire article is really about how hindu religion supports dowry and how it is abused and etc...
but the main problem is sikhi is dragged into the middle with no evidence. Just false claims. It just says how Hindu scriptures say it's ok to abuse women, but then they sikhi is similar with no evidence.
