    i am very anguished by the people who are hell bent on making it seem on cyberworld that being khalistani is a perquisite to be a "good" sikh ... thanks to many nut heads those who call themselves sikhs and promote their hate filled agenda of religious superiority.... a simple web search on "sikh" leads you straight to a khalistani webpage...atleast majority of webpages thrown have a khalistani overtones.. except for matrimonials :)

    a few questions i have..and am presenting in this straw poll..

    1) How many of you consider that supporting Khalistan makes you a better sikh
    2) how many of you consider that Khalistan or whatever is a logical idea?
    3) what would be the composition of citizens of khalistan
    4) How is idea of khalistan different from idea of Grand Khalifat or ummah of muslims?
    5) does a sikh serving in indian army/police become a lesser sikh for defending his motherland?
    6) how are khalistanis different from these - KKK, Nazis and Taliban.

    amarsanghera ji good poll.i disagree that being a khalistani is perquisite of a good sikh

    1)supporting khalistan does not makes me better sikh
    2)i beleive that khalistan is illogical idea
    4)the idea khalistan is quite similar to islamic country
    5)serving in indian army or police does not make you lesser sikh
    6)i think khalistanis are not as cruel as nazi's or talibans

    <<6)i think khalistanis are not as cruel as nazi's or talibans>>

    veerji

    thanks for responding..

    how would you see this in light of following statements

    1. punjab belongs to sikhs and only sikhs have right to rule it
    2. Dhoti topi jamuna paar
    3. posters in schools forcing girls to wear salwaar kameez and wear chunnis always covering their heads.

    i myself have been witness to incidents when parents of girls were threatened of dire consequences if they went to missionary schools or if they didn't wear the dress prescribed, or didn't cover head...

    what about personal freedom.. why thumbs and fingers of many people who kept long hair( outer sikhs) and used to eat tobacco..

    isn't this infringement of personal freedom?

    please evaluate the question in this light....

    Gurfateh ji
    In my point of view and from the view of all the other great philosphers of Sikh panth
    "If a Sikh is not Khalistani, he/she is not a Sikh"

    and jst wanna add that "those who compare Khalistan with Taliban are very big fools". Pls first go and understand the concept of Khalsa and Khalistan before making any type of foolish statements.

    sorry for being rude but its true... bul chuk muaff

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
