Why we should not gossip

Recommended Posts

It states in Rehat that one should not gossip about others. It's interesting how much people spread rumours especially about Prophet Muhammed. Sometimes it's "He murdered the true prophet," or "He was indecent towards children" or "He got his ways by lying, murdering and cheating..." QUESTION! Were YOU present to witness all this? Is this written in the Quran or any other trustworthy historical scriptures? If yes PLEASE CORRECT ME IF AM WRONG! If not then, like all slanders, this too is heresay NO evidence. Many people laugh and quickly take this to be the truth! Just because they heard it/ hear what they wish to hear and believe it. 

Unfortunately I too have fallen prey to the whims of Nindia! "Sikhs" told me so much bull about other Sikhs that I believed it because, at the time, it seemed true. Today I realise it was 100% false accusations. When someone tells us something we think "Can that be true? How did they know? How on Earth can they figure it out?" But when it comes to nindia, we stop right in questioning and believe it! (If you question Nindia/ talk behind backs, congrats). 

NOW! How long was Muhammed? More than 1000 years ago? Ok, let's take a look at another nindia that's being done by so many people out there, that so many Giaani Ji's/ kathas and books talk about that they to correct a wrong.  The accusations are as follows; "Guru Gobind Singh Never cut any 5 human heads. They were heads of sheeps." On hearing that how do you feel? here's more that I read AND heard on radio discussion "Guru Gobind Singh committed suicide by jumping in a well on hearing the "death" of his 2 young sons and mother." HOW DO YOU FEEL!? DREADFUL? HOW DO YOU SUPPOSE MUSLIMS FEEL WHEN THEY HEAR ABOUT MUHAMMED IN A NEGATIVE LIGHT!? Yes am writing this here because I have heard it from Sikh individuals. 

Finally, if overtime Muhammed's been ridiculed in so many ways (more than 1000 years onwards), where do you suppose the stories of Dussa Paasha, Guru Gobind Singh would be? How many more lies and negativity be added to his name? How many people will hear accusations and nindia against our Guru Sahibs? IT'S ONLY BEEN 300 PLUS YEARS SINCE THE TIME OF KHALSA! WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE NEXT 700 YEARS? If we hate these accusations, hurt our feelings I fail to see why we do the same to others. 

Okay folks am off be sure to comment, correct my mistakes and feel free to prove me wrong.

Bhul chuck maaf.

    • Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji didn't discriminate between satguru as their is only one same satguru for every yug.  He told us to praise, worship, meditate on the one and only satguru.  He wrote about the 24 incarnations of Vishnu and he corrected what happened actually to the 24 incarnations.  If Krishna and Vishnu were satguru, Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji would have said it in his writing about them.  Instead he wrote to say I don't praise them or think of them, I hold Mahakaal ( which translates into Vaheguru in this context as he is the destroyer of all) praise only in my mind.
    • people need to stop having WWA matches with rehits imo. 
    • This whole jathabandi nonsense has had a negative impact on Sikhi, and I wish we would do away with it.
    •   Jagsaw, I am very surprised that you consider the movement of Sikhs out of areas with substantial Sikh populations to be "progress". First of all, I thought you lived in Southall?  Or perhaps another part of West London?  If so, I find it odd that you consider it a positive thing not to live in areas such as the one that you yourself live in. Second of all, I think you are greatly overlooking just how much of a positive impact that living in an area with a substantial Sikh population can have when it comes to preserving our religion and culture.  It is foolish to discount the importance of children being able to grow up in a "community", with Gurdwaras and Khalsa Schools nearby, with peers who come from the same background, who practice the same things, speak the same language.  I credit the "ghettoization" of the Sikh community in the UK for preserving the Sikh religion and Punjabi culture despite several generations having elapsed.  The vast majority of Sikhs in the UK trace their roots in the UK to the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s.  Yet somehow, young Sikhs in the UK appear to be more religious and interested in Sikh issues than the Sikh youth in Canada or America.  Somehow, young Sikhs in the UK seem to have almost as much exposure to Punjabi language and culture as their American and Canadian counterparts whose families arrived from India in the 1980s and 1990s. In America, the vast majority of Sikhs live in cities and neighborhoods with effectively no Sikh presence.  That has an impact.  It leads to young Sikhs who grow up with little knowledge of, connection to, or regard for their religion and culture.  It leads to interfaith marriages that effectively wipe out Sikhi from families.  It cripples our ability to safeguard our way of life.  I very much doubt that young Sikhs in America in the year 2060, whose families arrived in the 1990s, will speak fluent Punjabi, go to the gurdwara, engage with their religion, and connect to Sikh political issues the way that a surprisingly large number of young Sikhs in the UK do today. 
    •   I think Malwa gets more credit for keeping Sikhi alive than it deserves.  Malwa is bigger than Majha and Doaba combined (in both land and population).  So the contributions its people have made to Sikhi in recent times is a bit distorted (I say "recent times", because before 1947, Majha and Malwa were comparable in terms of land and Sikh population).  Malwa is so much bigger that it dominates.   It is notable that even though Majha has a much smaller population than Malwa, the vast majority of young Sikhs who took up arms in the 1980s were from Majha. The Majha district (especially what is now Amritsar District and Tarn Taran District) have historically been the strongholds of Sikhi.  However, this region was the hardest hit during the dark times of the 1980s and 1990s, and it is perhaps the hardest hit today when it comes to the drug epidemic.  Sadly, the Sikh youth in Majha seem to have discarded their kesh, do not follow rehat, and have in many cases succumbed to drugs.
