Before you Gursikhs jump to any hateful thinking for me, let me make it very clear that I am myself a Sikh, a practicing Sikh. But looking at the traits that are being shown collectively by Majority of Sikhs in today's World. I have started wondering if Sikhs are one of the (if not the) most blasphemous people to their own faith.

Now I know I will be opposed by all you guys, but my questions are serious and extra-ordinary in the sense that these allegations are rare and not usual. This is just the way I feel, I will be thankful to all you guys who will come up with their suggestions and comments.

FIRSTLY, What I feel Sikhism has been reduced to just mere fashion such as keeping Hairs, the Joodas , wearing the turbans and showing off your faith externally and knowing literally nothing of the message that is given for "internal" purification isn't this trend so similar to the way Guru Nanak opposed the Brahmin for making him wear the Janau? Now aren't the Sikhs doing the same thing the "other way" round, Doesn't it give the simple message "Just keep hairs only then you are a true Sikh" is this what our Sikhism is all about? But nevertheless that's the extent of the limited and myopic understanding of Sikhi in our World today no one seriously cares and ponders as to what is written and said by our living Guru Shri Guru Granth Sahibji Maharaj(SGGS)and what our Guru actually demands from us in order to classify as good human being and a Gursikh.

SECONDALY, Ego. Frankly speaking hardly any effort is being made by sangats or known Gyanis to collectively work towards shedding the ego which is indeed the major obstacle in our path towards Akal Purakh and realizing our real-self. The most astonishing thing which I feel is our principles and History of Sikhi is being used as a "tool" for inflating the ego. Was SWORD given as an arm or were Sikhs armed to fight for SELFISHNESS or was it for Selfless sacrifise for sake of TRUTH? "Saade guruaan ne kurbaaniyaan diti, Hinduaan Vaaste", "Saade Purkhaan ne Dharam layi Sees Kataye", "Saade Sikh Saza-e-Kaala Pani ch Sabto zyada shaheed hoye"... I mean there has to be a line which needs to be drawn between something to be proud of & to learn and something to be felt egoistic about. May I ask all bibis and Gyanis here since when our Gurus said that be "egoistic" about their achievements. The Social sites are full of abuses towards Hindus and Vedas, Yes I know all Sikhs don't do that but how come even SOME Sikhs are motivated to use such horrendous words for Krishan, Rama, Shiv, Pravati when our Gurmatt teaches us to literally to respect all Matts and traditions.

THIRDLY, Disrespect of Dasam Granth is the most serious issue that has hardly found any attention among the debates ... (more)

Spend your time improving yourself and then start worrying about preaching about Sikhi.

"The new generation of Sikhs will demolish all this rubbish thats going on." Absolutely! No need to cut down dying trees.Time to plant a new garden. The Guru is awakening the Panth and calling his fauj back to his feet. A new generation arises. Raj karega Khalsa aqi rahei na koe Khwar hoe sabh milange bache sharan jo hoe!

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Firstly there will always be people that do good and bad things in every religion some people are firm some are not. We tend to focus on people not following Sikhi than those amazing Gursikhs who do.

Regarding cast and alcohol it annoys me that this is going on in Sikhi but this ain't Sikhi, it's Indian and what is know Panjabi culture. Even Muslims have cast in India. If you look a Sikhs outside of India, do most of them drink, believe in cast?

Are leaders haven't done much in the past, but now the youth is standing up we got brother and sisters like Basics of Sikhi, Sikh to Inspire, Bhai Sukha Singh Ji UK and Gudwaras in the western countries becoming much better in terms of educating our panth who cant speak/understand Panjabi. The new generation of Sikhs will demolish all this rubbish thats going on.

You don't know what Sikhi is. A fake Sikh is what you've described. A true sikh is the opposite of what you said. Now stop briny a fake sikh and start walking the real path. I'm a fool but by gods grace I'm taking baby steps.

By the way, ever heard of 3HO? They're not all Punjabi at all! I'm a convert to Sikhi and not even part of 3HO (I'm striving to be a Nihang) and I Was born, and live in America.
