    ExploringSikhi ji

    YOUR POST HAS BEEN DELETED. DA-WAH IS BY DEFINITION AN ATTEMPT TO CONVERT. WE CAN AGREE ON THAT.

    It is not the responsibility of any Sikh or Sikh forum to "take this on." You have a lot of work to do. First begin answering your own questions by doing research. You can start by reading the vaaran of Bhai Gurdas ji. Apparently he is recognized as an historian, but you are not sure why that is so.

    If you need a reading list, we will provide one.

    Undermining Sikhism and the Gurus is a violation of TOS for this forum, as any continued discussion of Da'wah never ceases to be. The thread is an open invitation to be treated to a da-wah, though it parades under a different mask. If your questions had been put forth in a different manner, just list of questions, without directing our attention to the islam/sikhism da-wah site, and if you made a simple request that each question be cleared up one by one, the thread would continue to see the light of day. But you are challenging us to defend ourselves. As if we have something to defend and are helpless to do it! And that is always the problem. First Sikhs are put on the defensive, and then naively Sikhs rise to speak to the challenge, never realizing that the entire point of da-wah is to break the spirit through endless rhetoric. What ensues is a thread where no one learns anything new.

    Why should Sikhs be expected to stand and deliver to a volley of rehearsed challenges? Islam claims it has all the answers. Sikhi is proud to have the questions, a sign of a humble intellect. How does a meaningful dialog come from that set-up? Thanks but there is nothing to discuss.

    Now with folded hands I suggest that you make a list of questions raised by your encounter with the da-wah site. Type them out. Do not direct this forum to a da-wah site (mostly because they are very good at finding us on their own, we don't have to go looking). Wait for answers. No need to give the Islamic rationale for why the question should be asked. Islam has no dominion over the questions that need to be asked of other religions. If it is a question in YOUR mind, just ask it.

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!
