So youre openly gay too? The reason why Id be bothered if someone says anything bad about a religion is because I expected more from my own religion's community and it makes us (as a whole) look bad. If someone who is irreligious says things like that then I would not care because it's clear that they are not trying to prove that they are religious while saying things like that. But if a religious person mocks other religions then it makes them look silly. Keep your fun facts to yourself, dear. Homophobia is a taboo among the younger (city) generation, so that's why they probably are more aware of what they question these days. They are attacking him as an individual, rather than every Sikh they see on the streets because if they did that theyd stop (knowing how theyd get in trouble by any other self respecting Sikh). 

No but I have to subjected to similar abuse. God you're dense. No it isnt a taboo, what world do you live in. LGBT people still have violence aimed at them, far more than any western country. This daft theory of yours might hold up if being Gay was legal in India and being Sikh wasn't. Except it isn't. The exact opposite exists but if you had half a brain you'd see that. As OP has said these people clearly aren't atheists. 

 

If you bothered to read OP properly instead of having a fit because someone dare raise a finger against your hindu friends, you'd know the abuse is strictly Sikh related. Nazi didn't go out on the street and start looking for Jews to beat up, that didn't come till much later. So please. Just because they don't harass Sikhs on the street (which is illegal btw) doesn't mean they don't have anti-sikh feelings. They aim for him because he's there and all alone. Maybe if you grew a brain you'd see that.

This rss agent is straight crazy.  The hindus directly insult Sikhi by saying the following:

 

1) Why do you tie that thing on your head ? to keep your head from exploding ?

2) Why do you people wear that dagger ? *after I explained him , "So if a sikh woman is gonna chop vegetables, but forgets her knife in kitchen, can she use Kirpan?"

3) What do you do if you gotta ride a bike ? how you going to wear your helmet ?

4) What you gonna do if you got an itch on your head ? how you gonna scratch ? *laughs*

You are very thick headed.  You should be the crash test dummy for vehicles. 

 They also said this regarding Sikh History 

Quote

 "this is only thing you're good for, this is your only history lol" He's a loyal far-right winger "nationalist".

If that isn't anti-sikh then I'm not even sure what is. Obviously as long as no one insults Hinduism Preeto wont mind.

First, preeto is right to an extent but so are rest of you 

Let me clarify again.

When I joined office, there was this psycho madrasi body-builder . But since he's a bloody psycho , he started bullying me, seeing my innocent naive face. And because I looked different (turban and beard).

I tell you these south-indians are least aware of sikhs in all of india !  When I was on client side, an even ruder guy of andhra (again not atheist !) told me "Arey remove this thing (turban) na .. Let fresh air come in !" . He went further and jokingly said "If he were PM of India , he would kill all of punjabis in one day.

"In one day it can be done. How much bullets one would need ?" I was horrified and shocked at what this guy is saying ! But I also told him he would be shot next day if he even dared do such a thing lol. 

I tell you we're IT people, a white collar job and yet we have such nut-jobs ! One of them , an ardent RSS-follower mockingly asked me "Where is your khalistan?" . He brought this up totally irrelevantly .

 I was really shocked considering I am seeing such people first time. 

But slowly when they doubted I am gay, they started gay jokes, but definitely its not just gay jokes. One marathi hindutva-fan guy praised hitler and smirked by saying "operation bluestar". 

Then they also joked on the current state of punjab (drugs) and claimed how sikhs are spreading drugs in india ! 

So , I kicked them in their nuts (religion ) . He also whined by how sikhs killed indra gandhi.   "Where's your ram mandir lol ? You hindus couldn't build it despite being 80% of population and having your own government " haha , you should have looked in their faces.

They picked on me (with anti-sikh vitriol) because they knew they could get away with it. They wouldn't do it against strong singh, but that wouldn't mean they respect singhs in general. It just means their hate (their true face) came in front of weak sikhs like me.

PS : Purpose of this post is not to spread hatred for hindus. It is just to make us aware of not to see one community as more "brother" than other. But at the same time, lets not have hate feelings for anyone.

Why are you resorting to name calling, I did not expect this from you. I am saying that those people were trying to insult him rather than the whole community, & clearly they are successful in it. Theyre only saying that to him since they only want his response to it. Those types of people only want entertainment in the form from him. Thats the difference between them and some of the people here who actually have an agenda against other faiths.

The point is we can't take it lying down. It goes against tenets of sikhi ! So thats why I thrashed them and kicked them in their own nuts and thats when they stopped (recently).

See, those people are just sick, rather than the avg person from those areas. I have friends from Andhra and they are all really nice, they do not even think of Sikhs from different from Hinduism since that's how close they think we are. Crazy people like those that you work with like to say those things to get a reaction from a specific individual, such sadists. 

I know ! I never said hindus are all bad.

Many of them are nice also ! But I have just come across so many nasty of them recently ! I wonder why they are the way they are ?! bad experience from other sikhs ? 

Also , once again let not this thread make anyone hate hindu kaum entirely. I created this thread so people can see other side as well.  I will also say without mincing words that hindus should be no more dear to us than muslims, christians, buddhists, etc.

That's good : ). To be honest, if that happened to me Id probably make a scene, but Ive never had that happen to me so I dont really know what Id do for sure lol.

I was very new to job and didn't had anyone on my side . So I ignored their antics. I didn't have other option .

But now that I am experienced, I have also learnt that you gotta shut them up the first time they do something insulting. Otherwise they take you for granted ! and thats where problems begin

Nobody hates Hindu kaum entirely or at all.  Everybody has been commenting on only those at your workplace, until Preet came along and made out that's what people are doing and twisting everything as usual. You yourself have said they started off insulting your Sikhi attire until they slowly doubted you are gay then they started on that side. 

Some people come along on a forum and like to fer the karchi as you would say which creates a reaction in others.

I m not saying you guys hate an entire community, but just saying that such incidents should never incline us that way. Just saying.

One can easily say that let dogs bark and prod on forward like the mighty elephant, but such a mentality will only signal to our detractors that we are weak. The time is now to unite and launch our own intellectual offensive against such pseudo-intellectuals. Tisarpanth is doing just that. Of course there are many who will argue that such articles take an aggressive line, but I feel that without aggressiveness nothing much can be achieved. At least they don't adopt the Sanataan garbage line and slag off the Singh-Sabha all the time.  

Singh-Sabha did both good and bad things. They went quite extreme with reforming, sideling traditional institutions, however some of their changes were the need of time. Whether Sanataanists also criticize it for destroying our art/traditions, I don't care. 

I am aware of the great work done by Tisarpanth. I think more people should start reading the articles. However, the lack of understanding the English they use is an issue.

I guess that's where dictionaries come in and our vocabulary increases.

Read the Hukam Guru Sahib gave him.  Ignorance is bliss.

I never commented on shiva state so keep your deep rooted hate bottled up inside. 

And can you clarify why this comment may be indicative of 'deep rooted hatred?'

    • Very nice post. 
    • Where in his Bani or his writings does Guru Gobind Singh give any indication of having that motive for helping Bahadur shah? You should not impose your own motives/agenda on Guru Sahib and assume that you speak for him, particularly when there is zero scriptural evidence for your position. Neither is there any historical evidence that I'm aware of - the histories say that Guru Sahib's motivation for allying with him was the condition that non-Muslims would be treated fairly under his regime. So, I ask you, how do you know that was Guru Sahib's motive for helping Bahadur Shah?     
    • The Dogras were the most immediate cause of the empire's downfall, but the fundamental cause for the collapse of the Sikh Kingdom was Ranjit Singh's fatal decision to make himself king of the Sikhs and replace the Khalsa's republicanism (Sarbat Khalsa, Gurmatta, Jathedari) with a system of absolutist monarchy which centralized all power in his hands - this had no place in a 'Sikh' nation. His miscalculation ensured that the kingdom would all but fall apart his death and be vulnerable to vultures, particularly in light of the uselessness of his heirs.  I disagree veerji. This Sikh kingdom would never have become as powerful as it did if not for non-Sikhs. The Sikh Empire was so successful while Ranjit Singh was alive precisely because he managed to integrate and secure the loyalty of the Punjabi musalman who constituted most of his subjects - and thereby ensured economic productivity and public order. The Khalsa army of the Lahore durbar was also not just made up of Sikhs - all cavalry were Sikh, but virtually the whole of the artillery was Muslim, as was a significant portion of the infantry of the regular army (included Pathans, Punjabi Muslims and Gurkhas). Secondly if not for the induction of non-Sikh European officers into the Sikh army, it would never have relinquished its fixation with irregular cavalry or its revulsion at the idea of infantry. Without the innovations of these non-Sikhs, therefore, the Fauj would never have advanced to first rank among the armies of Asia. An army composed entirely of cavalry is fine when you're fighting a guerilla war, not so much when you're building and defending an empire against men with guns and artillery.  Furthermore not all non-Sikhs in the kingdom were disloyal to the durbar, and not all Sikhs were loyal. The Muslims of Punjab routinely resisted the calls of the Afghans (and later, the mutineers of 1857) to join them in jihad against the infidel Sikhs. The Fakir brothers (Muslims) were loyal to Ranjit Singh's memory to the last, as were several of the other Hindu Dogra generals of the Khalsa army (Dogras are a race, not a family. It was one family of Dogras in particular which caused most of the trouble). And while there were good, loyal Sikh nobles such as the Attariwalas and the Nakkais, there were many more who were fickle and treacherous.  Rani Jindaan was notoriously corrupt , as were the Sandhawalias, who murdered Sher Singh, the only successor of Ranjit Singh with even a shred of competence, by blowing him to pieces with a shotgun. I think your stance is way too absolute bro.   An empire is by definition multicultural and cosmopolitan. The Vatican is not the most apt comparison here (It is a country in name only).
