Sant jarnail singh ji and motorcycles

Recommended Posts

Wjkk wjkf. I had a question regarding sant jarnail singh. In many of sant jis speeches he does benti to the sangat that every pind in punjab must have revolvers and a motorcycle. I understand the revolver part because sikhs need to keep shastars, but i do not understand why does every pind need a motorcycle. Can anyone in the sangat please explain this to me. Bulha chuka kehma muaf. Wjkk wjkf

A mode of transportation needed to travel. In 80's very few (extremely few) could afford a car- so only option was a bike.

Even bikes must hv been costly back then. Also bullet nd royal enfield were only options

The reason motorcycles are better for protected a pind, or even a city over a car is because while a motorcycle requires better balance, what it offers is higher mobility over a car or a truck. Also unlike a car, motorcycles are completely in the open which would allow them more accurate ways to shoot a firearm.

Sant Ji's advice hearkens back to the way puraatan Sikhs waged war. Sikhs were outnumbered then, as they were outnumbered in the 80's (and now), and the most effective way for an outnumbered, outgunned group to fight against steep odds is to employ hit and run tactics. This was why virtually every Sikh soldier of the misl era fought in a singular way, mounted on a nimble horse and armed with a matchlock rifle. The motorcycles of today are like the horses of yesteryear, allowing Singhs to pick off their enemies with deadly precision from a distance, and then beat a swift retreat to continue the fight later. Sikhs would never have won in a plain firefight against the GOI, the motorcycle enabled kharkus to eliminate strategically important targets quickly and easily, and then flee, threading through narrow gaps in the streets and gallis in a way that a gaddi just can't. Basically it was the perfect vehicle for guerilla warfare and the assassination of panth dhokiaan.

    • A poster in another thread mentioned eggs being off limit.  So I tried researching dietary teachings of Sikhi.  I ran straight into a wall of conflicting information. Some eating meat as long as its not kosher or halal, others eating jhatka meat only.  Still nothing on eggs.  I respect everyone's personal choice, but where do the eggs come in?  
    • The videos you posted are highly disturbing.  But you would get a lot further on this forum if instead of your wording above, in which you seem to say all amritdharis as a group are frauds and fakes, you would say: "There are many frauds and fakes who are posing as amritdharis but are actually patit" If you were to phrase it like that, nobody could object to your statement. The reason you are catching flak is because you made a provocative and arguably false statement.
    • This should be a thread in its own right and be put in the gupt section as a sticky!
    •   I may indeed be wrong, but in my opinion the tuks you quoted above and the ones I quoted above, together, would mean something like this: Guru Sahib is able to remove your sins, yet at the same time, if you commit serious sins (bajjer kurehat) after adopting Guru ji as your guru, a blemish will remain. So, for example, the greatest of sinners (Kauda Rakash, Sajjan Thug) can turn away from their sins and have them expunged through the Guru. But, if after you come to the Guru and commit additional such sins, the blemish will remain. I.e., you should not think that peshi is a game. Take Amrit, commit paaps, do a peshi, then repeat all over again.
    • I've actually never read any of Bhai Gurdas Ji's Kabits. Attend Katha of the Vaaran and have read some of Pandit Hazaara Singh's steek. They are absolutely mind-blowing. Sangat, yes. Non-Sikh, yes. Bemukh, yes. Guru Sahib, not sure. Guru Sahib of course knows everything - antajami, but, I cannot imagine Guru Sahib looking upon a Sikh with judgement. It's hard to describe with words without giving an impression of duality. Guru Sahib will always know what you did, that is now part of your lekha but saying the stain remains in the sight of Guru Sahib sounds a bit Judeo-Christian to me. Do you see where I'm coming from? I would agree on the point of such a prachaarak. No they shouldn't have a right to preach but it all depends on the situation. I mean I didn't watch the videos but they were all buying booze and were quite well aware of their actions. But we should also remember that many preachers and Kirtanis are not really Sikh nor do they have any intention of living like one. It's a job, nothing more. We just assume they're Dharmic bande.
