If the discussion is about starting missionary work on sikhism I'm all for it. Let's take the responsibility on our shoulders of leadership for a better tomorrow and start giving 10% of our net income / dasvandh / tithe towards organisations like Basics of Sikhi.

But then again, will we do it?

Now this will be my personal opinion and I try to use a better way of communicating :

Punjabi sikhs have one view of sikhi which they share on facebook and put words that guru like "Before following dharma, be a human" - Guru Nanak. However as you learn in school and university, you have to always check your sources before writing a scientific journal.

Now what is our source in sikhism? Shri Guru Granth Sahib. Did guru nanak say that? No. Guru Nanak did not say that.

Sri Guru Granth sahib says other thing which breaks alot of these false ideas on what sikhism is to the punjabi sikhs. By preaching bani, sikh teachings and history , alot of them will abandon sikhi on what they thought sikhi was for their purposes and join other religions like christianity and consumerism.

Punjabi Culture has today mutated from a culture on survivability too a mix of survivability and heavy influences of consumerism which made it to such a grotesque creature that wreck havoc in peoples lives, families and environment.

It is all about consuming: Consuming, family, friends, drugs, information, food, pleasures and material things etc.

And alot of punjabi youth have to choose between punjabi culture and the culture of consumerism.

Between a rock and a hard place.

We have to give them a better alternative.

One big problem facing us is Information consumption like Snapchat, whatsapp, social media etc.

Baljit Singh from Basics of Sikhi also have made a video which I can not find at the moment.

Enough of my ranting. I am not going to write words, I will speak them with my actions by funding Basics of Sikhi and helping with the missionary parchaar stuff.

About sikh leadership has not been acting in power since Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee was formed 150 years ago. But are you ready for taking that responsibility?

I do not know if Jagraj Singh beef is with Jats but I think you do not have to worry about the Jats. Before speaking of that hot topic potato I just want to mention that I was born in the jat tribe and if I remember correctly Jagraj Singh himself is also born to the jat tribe. Not that it makes a difference since it seems like his research led him to make that assessment that outside forces used jat tribe own nature for their own purposes and the destruction that followed as we see today.

Let us continue. This site 24x7 Non Stop Punjabi Music Vidoes is a little reflection on what kind of consumption the Jats are consuming and what they want to project to their reality. As you see there are no religious messages here (more then 95%+ of the time). It is just the conflicts of tribal nature and hopes, dreams and love like all music.

This answer is just in general and does not apply to all jats and punjabi sikhs. Many Jats and Punjabi Sikhs are also trying their utmost to turn this negative spiral which I will try and help.

personally and help them with.

What I want to say is that by working on yourself and your own sikhi you can be so much more productive in turning the negative spiral around.
