Hindunised Sikhs

Recommended Posts

Having visited India. I remember talking to a few Sikhs. Who said that they did not consider themselves Sikhs. But more Hindu. Even though they were born Sikh.

They said being in India. They were surrounded by mostly hindus, mandirs and what not. Mostly hindu festvials, culture and traditions. In essence they said they regarded themselves more Hindus. Their friends were hindus. the neighbours were hindus. The language they had to speak was hindi apart from talking to their family members. 

Is this common In india. btw I am talking from speaking to these people from big cities away from Punjab. Such as mumbai, dehli, calcutta ect. 

They also did hindu pilgrimages and had mata photos. 

How can we stop this from happening. This is nothing against hinduism. 

Hindus are great peoople with a great religion and culture.

But under no circumstances should people be trying to mix Hindu beliefs and traditions with Sikhism. If you are a hindu be a hindu if your are a sikhs be a sikh. but dont go mixing it up. 

Trying to be some swami yogi man. that belives in everything. 

Its a great shame to see hindunised sikhs. That are confused and deluded.

I don’t trust India or Pakistan. Both of them want to trap the Sikhs.

It seems like they are suceeding. Theres so many fake cults and sects in India. So many people are just greedy only wanting money. I recently met a Sikh that does many pilgramages to mandirs and hindu shrines across India. 

This guy had turban and beard on aswell..

I was like get a grip. when was the last time you been to do a pilgramage or visited the golden temple? 

So many fake wannabe Hindus In India. 

So many fools tarnishing the image of Sikhs. By all means if You wanna do all these hindu rituals and beliefs then become a hindu. Dont carry on wearing the turban and disreapecting the Sikh faith.

If we believe the Nihungs that this was none other than the Guru Mata herself Mata Sahib Devan Ji then may I be the first to say...Mother was a Queen.

I have also met a few Sikhs in India and even in the UK who follow elements of Hinduism and vist Mandirs when you ask them why they reply back by saying god is one   which is fair enough but that   contradicts itself as they many gods in Hinduism which have different meanings. There is no harm in learning and incorporating the good elements of Hinduism  but its when you incorporate such things as fasting , the cast system  and all these other rituals which go against Sikhism.  karva chauth is a  prime example . its a sexist ritual and does not promote gender equality which Sikhism does yet  some Sikhs even in the UK follow this ritual  to the  T . Its primary a north Indian Hindu thing and even Hindu's  from  the Gujarati community laugh  at this ritual.

Indian Sikhs (as in those living back home), not including the observant, are pragmatic about their methods of worship and their general belief system. It's very similar to what we have in the West with "cultural" Christians. I would never say it's pakhand, but it's more of ceremonial / being seen to be doing the right thing, mentality. I'd say there's a greater sense of devotion for the particulars amongst NRIs.

Even before India was created, during the Guru's times when it was Bharat or Hindustan, sikhs were always surrounded by Mandirs and hindus, except their were terrorist muslims then.

Also in those times hindu was a geographical term, and no such term as Hindu"ism" existed until goras combined all the panths and folk traditions and repackaged them into an inaccurate religious term.

    • I'm not quibbling over the import of the word "disassociate". What I'm saying is that your statement implied that if your husband (or wife) becomes an atheist you can divorce him.  And I said that that is specifically disallowed in Canon Law. On the other hand, if you were non-Christians in the first place, and you become a Christian, and your husband/wife divorces you, you have not violated anything if you remarry. But: If you were non-Christians in the first place, and you become a Christian, and your husband/wife does not divorce you, you cannot divorce him/her in Canon Law.
    • well bro what does disassociate mean to you ...I heard seperation of ways , but also I understood it to be a grey area since canon law still maintains that they are married despite the dharmic arth of the instruction..
    • hobson's choice , if you have a preselected array who have blessing from on high by centre there is NO choice only eyewash ....even Kejriwal showed his true colours when he didn't oppose the transfer of Jaggi to Tihar Jail
    • Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa. Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Often times I hear people say "SGGSJ doesnt say (insert topic) so it must be ok", and in the case of pre-marital sexual relations a dear friend of mine has made the same argument. My friend (non khalsa) argues that Bani specifically condemns rape, adultery, and polygamy, however isnt against sex outside of marriage, provided that both are not married to anyone, and have given consent. My friend likes to disregard anything outside SGGSJ.  He brings up tuks from Gurbani that specifically mention "others wives" to support the argument that its specifically about adultery, however I would argue, the English translation is very shallow, and in the context of Bani, "others wives" is also talking about anyone who isnt your wife, and isnt limited to adultery, but also anyone who isnt married.  Example 1:  Siri  Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 274 ਪਰ ਤ੍ਰਿਅ ਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਪੇਖੈ ਨੇਤ੍ਰ ॥ Par Thria Roop N Paekhai Naethr || ਪਰ means other ਤ੍ਰਿਅ means wife
        Example 2:  Siri  Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 1013
      ਇਸਤ੍ਰੀ ਤਜਿ ਕਰਿ ਕਾਮਿ ਵਿਆਪਿਆ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਇਆ ਪਰ ਨਾਰੀ ॥
      Abandoning his own wife, he is engrossed in sexual desire; his thoughts are on the wives of others.   Context:  Its not just talking just about adultery, the English translations are limiting, generally the concept is to not covet another wife, in the context of Bani, doesn't mean you can have sexual relations with women who are not married. Our rehat and history make it clear that one cannot have any sexual relations outside of marriage. There is a specific reason the Guru had 10 forms over 200 years, it was to show Sikhs how to live and practically apply Bani, otherwise the SGGSJ would have been all compiled by Guru Nanak and there would be no long history of the Guru in his many forms.    The SGGSJ isnt a rule book, and isnt going to specifically ban everything that we know is immoral. Where in SGGS Ji does it say that Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji was the 7th Guru Sahib after Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji? Why would a primary Sikh text not name him?  In terms of Gurbani, when taken into context, and even compared to rehat and our history, its clear that sexual relations outside of marriage are discouraged.    Do you agree with my argument? These are just a few tuks I decided to bring up, if anyone has any more, please feel free to share!
