Re: Are we Sikhs somewhere responsible for the rise of Deras

SPGC has taken firm control of Gurudwaras. They firmly defined who can vote and who can serve in SPGC. A recent Panjab Supreme Court case about the definition of a "Sikh" is a case in point. This case involved caste-based quota system for admission to Guru Ram Das Medical College. Even though most o...

Re: Caste System: Are Sikhs hypocrite?

It is hard to sweep under the rug, Sikhs practice caste system. Unfortunately, caste system is more pervasive among Sikhs living abroad. It gets worse, they won't admit it! Most Jatts won't approve the marriage of their sons or daughters to matches from groups they consider inferior. There is a clea...

Re: Doctor vs lawyer

However, for medical school you need more Biology and Chemistry and for law school you need to take more P...

Re: Help Needed

Re: New to sikh. Help!

You can follow Sikhi without wearing a turban or growing hair. Keep learning about the main tenets of this religion till you feel comfortable about your outward appearance.

Re: Want advise and prayer

It will take courage to address this problem. Select a group involving respectable men and woman from his village and your village and tell them that he is spreading false rumors about you.

Re: Criticism of Sikhism on Wikipedia

Teghbeer Ji, I am sure you are putting up a good fight to eliminate falsehoods from the narrative. Almost all religions receive criticism. Most of the criticism is about the practice vs. the scriptures. There is no uniform method for practicing Sikhism except Rehat. Not all Sikhs follow Rehat or tak...

Re: Where to find good sangat in Germany?

At fifteen, submerge yourself in your studies and sports. You are a sangat of one with Guru's grace. But most importantly: Be Yourself.
