Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh

I am Gaganpreet Singh a Amritdhari SikhI have completed my 12th and about to take admission in an engineering collegeI want to ask the sikhsangat about facing views/jealousy of others on being different from them.It can be in any form like jokes, or in any other way Actually I love sikhi/sardari and can even die to preserve it.So i feel very sad and get angry when someone makes joke of it.I can't listen something bad about it.So how should I respond to these kind of situations according to Gurmat and Sri Guru Granth Sahib JiI have two views on it

1 Don"t argue and ignore them like a barking dog ਮੂਰਖੈ ਨਾਲਿ ਨ ਲੁਝੀਐ ॥१९॥੧੯॥ मूरखै नालि न लुझीऐ ॥Mūrkẖai nāl na lujẖī▫ai. ||19||Don't argue with fools. ||19||SGGS-473 They will be punished hereafter in The court of the lord for making fun of God's gifts and God's true saints

  1. Or I should with keeping my self respect and posture(anakh) as All gurus told us to live Respond to them And thereafter I should show them a mirror and expose the truth of their religion in many ways you know And tell them the history behind it(jokes).And that you people are becoming thankless(ehsan faramosh) and these are people are burden on earth ਤੂ ਸਮਰਥੁ ਵਡਾ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਤਿ ਥੋਰੀ ਰਾਮ ॥You are great and all-powerful; my understanding is so inadequate, O Lord .ਪਾਲਹਿ ਅਕਿਰਤਘਨਾ ਪੂਰਨ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟਿ ਤੇਰੀ ਰਾਮ You cherish even the ungrateful ones; Your Glance of Grace is perfect, Lord. SGGS-547 ਹਿੰਦੂ ਅੰਨ੍ਹ੍ਹਾ ਤੁਰਕੂ ਕਾਣਾ ॥ The Hindu is sightless; the Muslim has only one eye. ਦੁਹਾਂ ਤੇ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਸਿਆਣਾ ॥The spiritual teacher is wiser than both of them. SGGS-875 And many........ more This is not slandering but exposing/speaking the truth(satyamev jayate) And moreover speaking after their statement only not started firstPlease reply as soon as possible Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh

Your silence and polite refusal to listen to it is their mirror. Let the last words they hear be their own.
