I happen to be a statistical nerd so if there are any figures you disagree with that I have quoted above - then mention them and I will justify my figures.
Or feel free to offer your statistics in contrast to mine above related to the specific figures I have mentioned and I will tell you why I disagree with you.
I will concede that we only have puratan sources to go on regarding my assertion of around 90% of Sikhs being killed in the vadda GhalluGhara 1746-1762.
I am also willing to concede that during the Congress Genocide of Sikhs that the percentage of Sikh victims may have been less than 1 in 200 ballpark figure if we extrapolate Shaheed Bhai Jaswant Singh Khalra Ji's figures. Similarly it is possible that in the Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs there may have been more than 20% fatalities.
Either way you look at it, in percentage of losses suffered per capita, the Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs was between 50-100 times worse (in percentage terms) than the Congress Genocide of Sikhs between 1984-1995.
Ajeet Singh no community should be trusted en masse. Even Sikhs in leadership positions should only be trusted on the basis solely of their actions rather than on the vague basis that they were/are supposedly a Brahmgiani Mahapurkh (eg Mahapurkh Sant Baba Harnam Singh Dhumma Khalsa Bhindranwale or "Faqr-e-Qaum" Badal or Santa or Beanta).
Using Lakhpat Rai, Gangu and the various low level employees of the Islamic Mughal Empire is like saying that KPS Gill and General Brar or Punjab Police under Beanta or Badal recently represent the Sikh community.
Pawns do the bidding of their more powerful masters.
The 1984 Genocide was done in Delhi by a mixture of Hindu's and Muslims. But in the context of Delhi 1984 who physically did the murders is not as crucial as understanding who orchestrated the violence against Sikhs - Congress (Indira) and Rajiv. Interestingly, Damdami Taksal campaigned for Congress (Indira) in the 1980 elections, so we as Sikhs are not without blame for allowing a terrorist like Indira to gain power in 1980.
By 1977, 30 years after the Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs in which 20% of our Qaum was killed there (the equivalent of if 6million Sikhs were killed today) most Sikhs had completely forgotten about the Pakistani Genocide of Sikhs and some were more focussed on Indira's pawn Gurbachana. During the Islamic vadda Ghallughara Genocide of Sikhs over 90% of the Sikh population at the time was killed off.
During the Congress Genocide of Sikhs up to 1 in 200 of our community's population was murdered by no more than 0.001% to 0.0001% of the Hindu population at the time. Ie 99.99% or 99.999% of Hindu's committed no violence against us. Even the Congress (Indira) supporters at the Rajiv 1984 victory election constituted no more than 15% of the Indian population at the time (which is the maximum extent of the Hindutva minority which currently successfully cons 79% of Indians into falsely thinking that they are Hindu - despite the word "Hindu" being an Arabic word meaning a "black-skinned thief"). So it is highly counterproductive to our own Sikh interests to consider so-called Hindu's in a generalised way as enemies.
Rather we should regard the minority of Hindutva supporters as our opponents but regard the general one billion so-called Hindu masses as future sehajdhari Sikhs. They are the biggest and easiest population for Sikhs to expand our numbers (for Sarbat da Bhala) fastest.
Realise that the RSS and Hindutva elements are happy when we express generalised hate for Hindu's as they know that keeps their so-called Hindu flock safe from wholescale conversion into sehajdhari Sikhs. The best way to attack Hindutva is to expand the Sikh population by incorporation of erstwhile Hindu's as new Sikhs. If Sikhs are a minority by the 2021 census in Punjab then we will only have ourselves to blame for not reaching out to Hindu Punjabi's and Bihari's in Punjab despite Dashmesh Pita being born in Bihar and most Hindu Punjabi's ancestors attending Gurdwara prior to the terrorist Nehru-Gandhi dynasty.
Very well said Singh598!
1. True acsap Singh that Santa Niddar Dal Nangs and Damdami Taksal are trying to push their Hindu soch upon ordinary Sikh masses but in Punjab these two so-called jatha's are becoming increasingly irrelevant, People see through them and Dhumma's support of Indira Gandhi in 1980 as well as his murderous attacks on Shaheed Bhai Bhupinder Singh Ji, Bhai Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale and Bhai Panthpreet Singh Khalsa.
2. Sikhi can NEVER be absorbed by Hinduism! Falsehood (Hinduism) can never absorb the Truth (Sikhi). It is Sikhs who need to absorb our brother peoples in India into Sikhi and liberate them from the lies of Hinduism.
All poor and good people in India are fundamentally sehajdhari Sikhs. But if we don't term all Gurdwara attendees as Sikhs and try to restrict the definition of Sikh to as small a population as possible whereas Hindutva strategists do the opposite and include anything with a pulse as being Hindu (for the political power to be gained from falsely terming people as Hindu's) then the fault is ours as Sikhs.
But yes I agree with you if we don't include as many people within the Sikh Panth (whereas our enemies strive to include include everyone under the Hindu umbrella) then clearly one method will defeat the other - so we need to strive to include as many non-Punjabi sehajdhari's within the Sikh Panth as possible - as the next Hindutva attack on Sikhs will be to try declare that sehajdhari are non-Sikhs so that Amritdhari Sikhs are reduced to a 3% minority in Punjab (which would be lesser in number than Muslims and Christians in east Punjab) which would be politically impotent in real terms. The puratan definition of a Sikh was anyone who bowed down in matha tek before Guru Sahib.
