    Dear member

    From your post I am not able to learn the real trend in the population of the followers of Sikh religion.

    To me number is important but, quality of we Sikh is more important. As the statistics you have projected indicate that the percentage of Jews is less than that of Sikhs but, see the infulence that they have in our world.

    With love and respect for all.

    are there any more recent numbers? this data is 7 years old. i'd also like to see numbers for sikhs OUTSIDE of india, as i believe sikhism is growing in western countries, which may "make up for" the decline in india.

    i also wonder how they define who is sikh...

    Yes, this has to be looked into. One can always google out. I do not think that sikhs outside India esp. 'white sikhs' would matter much.There % contribution would be very small.

    You may calculate the percentage of the white sikhs. I do not think there is any organisation that keeps such a data. If U have pl. share.:8-:)

    LOL

    the %age figures given are wrong...

    also this paragraph is absolutely ****

    <<Members of the community caution that the dwindling numbers of Sikhs should not disqualify them from seeking government employment. For instance, seats in the Indian Parliament, in the armed forces and the civil services should not be allocated on the basis of population. >>

    there is no reservation based on religion/ population size

    I tend to think I, as a person, don't matter much.

    i fear i'm not as spiritually advanced as you. :) i still feel hurt when people are rude to me. yes, it's probably a sign of ego, yes, i'm working on it.

    i'm happy for you that you're beyond these petty human emotions. you're very lucky. :)

    I'm not saying i'm past it - I'm just saying that maybe it's better to not say something that shows ego - because when you do so, you are just letting your ego, then, take control.

    On the other hand, if i had no ego - Why am i posting this?

    Thank you for the insight Kaur ji. :D
