My position is for a PUBLIC LIFE..one clearly has to be 110% Faultless....Cloroxed
super WHITE !! Because in PUBLIC..you represent not only your own INDIVIDUAL SELF..BUT the ENTIRE KAUM....so your "black mark" affects many many hundreds of SIKHS who may indeed be 110% Super White BUT Now get PAINTED/TAINTED
by your action.
WE had 10 Gurus, over 30 Bhagats, Sheikhs, several Generals right up to Sikh Raaj....each and Everyone a SUPER WHITE....in fact Legends abound about Generals like Hari Singh Nalwa who so affected a beautiful Afghan Princess that she called him into her palace privately and told him..i want to produce a SON like YOU...and Hari Singh fell at her feet and said MOTHER..There can be ONLY One like ME..I am YOUR SON
. There is no record of just how many thousands of beautiful damsles the Sikhs rescued form the invaders and sent them back safe and sound to their parents (and its fact that they were exceptionally beautiful simply because the invaders woudlnt bother to take captive unattractive girls/boys)..BUT not a single SIKH ever got a black mark even under those trying circumstances...MORAL HIGH GROUND is our Hall mark...and Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji stresses on THAT. Guru Gobind Singh ji has forbidden a Sikh to even DREAM of bedding someone whos not your legally wedded partner...so theres no question that sexual impropriety is FORBIDDEN in Sikhism and once a finger is raised...withdrawl
is the best policy. Why go in Public and risk such issues being dragged out and the entire sikh nation is dragged thru the mud...I know its NOT FAIR..but then Lifes like that...most of the time...Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/united-kingdom/38631-sikh-at-queens-jubilee.html
A White bearded Fakir was once a neighbour of a Prostitute. She told him..Baba Ji..your ebard is so white..compared to my situation. The Fakir said..No Lady..my beard is NOT as white as you think...when its really white I will tell you. ON his DEATH BED, the Fakir called in his neighbour and declared..I have a few moments to live...NOW I can say with full confidence..MY BEARD is WHITE and I dare face my Creator with it.
