Today Sikhism is going through a very difficult time. Who is responsible for that ? i think our ancestores ,our grandparents and our parents who did not tell the next generation what is sikhism all about. if they explained sikhism to somenoe then it was an inaccurate explanation. do you agree ?

I do not think that Sikhism is losing it's respect. I for one know that my parents and grandparents did quite a wonderful job in explaining Sikhism to be and I am forever thankful to them. :)

Oh and another thing that I wanted to point out was that... Why is a diamond so expensive? because it is rare and so very precious and that is the same with Sikhism. Sikhism is a very unique religion and is is very precious that is why real Singhs and Kaurs are hard to find.

Sikhism I believe will never lose its respect.

Thankyou.

Sat shiri Akal, it is very nice that there are some people who think positive about sikhism's future. but the most important thing we should not ignore the reality. i have discussed with non sikhs about sikhism and answered all their questions and made them understand that sikhism is flawles opposite other religions. i was very disappointed to hear that they did not even know basic things about sikhism and they had many prejudices and misperceptions about sikhism and it's culture. why? because nobody told them about sikhism.we feel very proud when we talk abou sikh history.Is this enough? most of the non sikhs don't know even one percent of sikh history. how many people know that sikhs have sacrificed their lives to protact hindus? how many people know that sikhs made a huge contribution (almost 80% to 90%)to indian freedom struggle against british despite being one percent of the indian population at that time? how many people know how many parmvir chakkar have sikhs won for india in wars against pakistan and china? and how many victoria cross have sikhs won for the british in first and second world war? we have to keep in mind that wars need brave soliders to be fought but without strength, wisdom and majority you can not win a war. today we all know that a small family is a happy family, i agree. but look at others for example musilms, they have got 10,15 and even more than 20 children in a family. i don't say that we should do the same.but we have a great challenge to maintain our majority. we have many obstacles and challenges to keep our religion alive in this world.you know Dr. zakir nayak he has created a indian version of islam to impress non muslims and he has suceeded,i have listened his speeches. he tries to explain all the things related to islam with logic.although islam has not much to do with logic like other religions. and sikhism which is modern and based only on logic is fallig back. why? because there is still cast system in sikhism, which damaged sikhism.and there is still dowery system in sikhism. and we dont have enough missionaries like christens ans muslims. we have money and we don't have to change anything in sikhism to make people like it, we just need to tell the world how great this religion is. other very very important thing that prevents non-sikhs to embrace sikhism is the way( ritual, custom) to convert to sikhism that one has to take AMRIT and five KAKARS. many non-sikhs like sikh philosophy and they want to be sikh but they don't want to change their look.that's why they don't convert to sikhism. and what DR. zakir nayak does? he calls a non-muslim to a microphone and ask, do you believe in one god? do you accept mohammand as last ...

I am Muslim and enjoy visiting the Sikh net website and have recently signed up to this discussion forum. I hope nobody will mind.

I am an Asian Muslim from the United Kingdom. As a Muslim, I respect Sikhism a lot and have only one Sikh friend who has taught me a great deal about Sikhism. I shown an interest in learning about Sikhism. I believe that a society can only be built on a sure foundation of mutual respect, openness and trust. This means finding ways to live our lives of faith with integrity, and allowing others to do so too. Our different religious traditions offer us many resources for this and teach us the importance of good relationships characterised by honesty, compassion and generosity of spirit.

I am not opposed to anyone propagating their religion, but some people just beyond what I consider to be reasonable. If I want to find truth, I have a brain and the intellectual ability to find my understanding of truth without someone breathing it down my throat.
