It is extremely painful to write your own brother’s obituary but it is the only form of expression I have

Recommended Posts

despite the obvious love , the sly digs at sikhs who want true sikhi are there, pity he couldn't hold off .for those holding out hope that something rubbed off , it hasn't Sunny still is playing to his script: amritdhari bad , hippy dippy liberal good . Puritanical? has even got a clue of what they did in the name of God ? burned people at the stake , branded people like animals for crimes. 

Waheguru please give him peace and true understanding

One of things I always suspected was Sunny was envious of Jagraj. 

He admitted to it when he called him the "cooler younger brother".

There is only two years between them and the closer the age gap in general the greater the sibling rivalry. 

It must be very difficult for an elder sibling to be in the younger sibling's shadow.

I really struggle to emphasise with what you are saying when you do not reference any particular points or substantiate what you mean. 

Where in his article does he say amritdhari bad?

This is quite a distorted and presumptuous analysis

This coward sunny didn't write a obituary about his brother.  It was about show boating about jagraj's mistakes.  He couldn't resist trying to collect a bigger fan base by trying to hurt the reputation of his dead brother.  Sunny has no shame.

Is it me or did it come across as Sunny putting his brother down frequently throughout the article?

considering he blocked me after I told him to leave sikhs alone to their beliefs  last year, doesn't surprise me at all, he almost suggests that Bhai Sahib's enthusiasm for sikhi was a mistake and made his first marriage fail, created unhappiness in the family...sad really.

Don't like to say anything to his family, after Bhai Jagraj Singh passing away, but I felt the same too. It's like it's an explanation in defence of himself in some places of the obtiuary. At first I thought, why is he even bringing those explanations into it. And then I thought, maybe it's me that's interpreted it wrong. But, however it's interpreted, what's written is written and I think there was no need for it, nor to bring his first marriage into it. It's like he was trying to say, "hey look at me too".  And like he was portraying Bhai Jagraj Singh wasn't as humble as he was. God knows why he had to bring aspects of his before-amritdhari life into it, which he portrayed in a negative way. That's my own opinion though, the brotherly bits were sincere, but I thought it was poorly written in places.

I'm very capable of reading between the lines and deconstructing text.. But there is reading btw the lines and fanciful leaps of imagination. And I think the accusations made against the writer fall in to the latter. 

I'd be happy to revise my opinion if someone demonstrates how they form those assumptions from that article

    • Agree, it’s the actions of the person that makes somebody negative. There was a video I saw a while ago, on this, but can’t find it now. A person can also change from a negative one to a good one. Like they say, Every Saint has a past, and every sinner a future.     
    • Although such abuses do happen now and then it is not a wide spread problem especially in Sikh community its more a hindu and muslim centric problem as they rely on dowry in their religious scriptures and culturally its been going on for thousands of years. The abuses are a very tiny percentage there's probably more  domestic abuse cases in Australian white privileged gay relationships than all the ethnic minorities put together. This article smacks of white privilege and covert racist dog whistling against ehtnic/religious minority communities the sad thing is asians/indains are too lazy to reply back to such white washed propaganda. If minorities really wanted to expose the white western cultural disgusting practices and norms such as wide spread abuse from alcoholism. Domestic violence prevalent in white communities in homosexual couples too. The amount of single parent families in white households. The outrageous neglect of elderly by white communities... then list would be endless and the whites would be outraged enough to try and defend their negative cultural practices and counter bash minority communities. It's long over due that time ethnic/religious community especially ours started to defend ourselves in the mainstream mass media produce counter pieces and counter propaganda against our accusers. otherwise this overt racism will just keep on happening. And next time you are looked at negatively for jobs, or in the street attacked cos of your faith or appearance it is because of such articles helped contribute to it.
