2013-01-01 19:40:37 -0600 asked a question Akand paaths to lah sukh for a boy or lohri

Sat Sri akal, I am writing in regards to how can the gurudwaras and sikh schools around the world promote gender equality. It is evident that domestic and sexual violence exists in our community. However the message is given early to the boys that they are more dominant. Our gurus stood up for gender equality. Why is it that here in Canada, UK, USA I have heard of people doing Akand paaths to 'lah their sukh for a boy' or every year doing paaths for a boy...or doing 'lohri' paats....isn't this against sikhi teachings. What kind of message is this sending to our community? Our gurus were way ahead of the times. Please let me know or help me find out how we can bring this issue to the Akal Takt so we can continue to follow our gurus teachings. The gurudwaras should reject such requests. Their should be classes for boys taught by males how to respect women. Sat Sri akal.
