    Well Sikhism is not a religion. Baba Nanak said " Na hum Hindu Na musalman". He rejected the religions. Sikh means Learner , because everybody learn from his daily life. So, the Hindus and Muslims those who rejected religions came to Sikhism means only have a trust in one supreme power.

    What religions are ?? Nothing Just a divisions between humanity. What these religions gave us ? Only blood not a peaceful life.

    Do Muslims have something extra then Hindus, Jews, or any Sikh has something extra ?

    The processor of birth is SAME
    Blood is........................SAME
    Body is.........................SAME
    Everything is .................SAME
    Everybody...................meet the death
    where we are different ??????????????

    God made three ..Man..Women...Faggots......and he putt a difference. where ever god put difference he putted ....Who are we to say that we are better then the other people those who are also made by god ( supreme power )

    This nature and animals are also god made ( he/she putted a difference )

    Animals are better then us because the haven't makes any division between them but WE.

    Shame on whole world and God give us whole world and one humanity.......earth we divided by Countries and humanity by religions , casts and races.

    Nao...I have read some talks between some Sikh boys and girls said that Can they marry in other religion or not ??

    Know here I want to ask one thing. Do a baptised Sikhs following Sikhism ? No. At some place they also do compromise.

    Guru Gobind singh said " Manas ki Jaat sabhe eke pehchanbo " Consider all as a one race.

    Then tell me ....why cant any one love with any person and marry with him or her. Why ? why You see religion , caste, Race ?????

    Unless we will not quit a concept of religions , caste , Race from our minds this world in not gonna to be peaceful place .

    90 % of problems on this world are due to these divisions makes by religions .

    God is one We are one.

    " Namastang Amajbe " hey god ! u dont have any religions ..by guru gobind singh

    then why we have ? w8in for your replies my dear frnds

    Dear Nirmaljot,

    I think the Sikh Religion came into being when the 10th Guru required his followers to wear the 5 K's and have a distinct identity. I don't think the 1st Guru started Sikhism.

    It is true that Religious Fanatics have caused a lot of trouble. Cristopher Hutchins has written a book about it called--God is not Great.

    I don't think Sikhism says that we are better than the rest, and our way is the only way.

    As far as inter-religion marriage is concerned, Sikhism is a way of life. It is preferred that you marry someone who follows the same way of life.

    Hundreds of Boys and Girls born into Sikh families have married non-sikh parteners. I don't see any hue and cry and no one is being stoned to death.

    You might be finding resistance in your case. I would recommend you read the "ASK DEEPAK" section at deepakchopra.com

    Here you go .You immidiately start using abusive language to people who don't agree with with your views and you talk about humanity .This is the type of mentality that create divisions in world and cause dispute.Stop doing dikhaawa of Humanity.

    Hitler killed jews and Slavs for Racial reasons not for religious reasons.Go and read history and you will found That Nazi army killed so many slavic people who are also christians.

    Where did I say That there are no disputes because of religions.I once read
    there are only 13% disputes because of religion.Others disputes have nothing to do with Religion.Just Go and read about other disputes E:G Rwanda Genocide where
    8 lakhs people were killed .Was there any religious angle involved?

    And BTW all Religions are not same.What similarilty you find in JIhadi Taliban Fighter and jain monk who don't believe in even killing an insect?

    Atheists also say that v will rule

    LOL you really have great knowledge .By using abusive language You see all humanity I am really impressed.Keep on doing this So that admins of site will ban you quickly

    Dear Nirmaljot,

    firstly, u must know the meaning of religion. religion is not division. Religion means following a path to reach to The Almighty. recall the word 'Panth' which means rasta/path. Majority of the people have forgot the real meaning of religion so looking at the majority, u felt that Religion means division. And, any Hindu/Muslim/Sikh etc. who goes against wat his religion asks him to do is not Hindu/Muslim/Sikh. People are wrong not the religions.

    2ndly, its good that u are concerned about humanity but when i read ur reply to Kanwardeep Ji, i really felt bad for the way u responded. I would had reported u abuse but din find the option. Gurbani padho te Samjho, fir dekho k kaun galat hai. Religion ya koi hor. Gurbani nhi padh sakde even then we can learn from the Lives of Guru and the Real Sikhs. Life of Dhan Dhan Shri Guru Amardas Ji shows how low a Sikh should be. many a times he gave the example of his humbleness. That was for us to learn from them and u look at ur reply. 20 saal di umar vich tainu lagda tu bahut syana ho gya? we are not here to fight but to discuss and learn from each other.

    I hope u will take it positively. :) :) :)

    SSA

    This is nothing new.I am on this site from past more than 5 years and the amount of abuse I received from the torchbearer of humanity and anti Religion people is huge.I just try to Reply them and immdiately they attack me for no reason.I had discussions with all the people muslims,hindu's sikhs but very few get abusive .They all are polite and try to discuss things.I don't understand if this is the amount of tolerance these people have in their mind then how can they talk about humanity?

    Kanwardeep wht you are saying have No logic.

    atheist also say we will rule............atheist are ruling on world

    and I m not atheist .......I have a trust in supreme power only.

    and then I said hitler killed jewish..........do u knw who are jews ? it is not any race it is religion.

    and
    Tell me .....if religions are god made....then why god doesnt stamp a religion stamp on the head of born baby or some where else ?

    dats why.......Muslims do SUNAT...........to stamp the person that he is muslim

    and Bhagat kabir ji / baba farid ( I m confused ) said in Guru Granth sahib ....dat if only SUNAT make a muslim then how can you say that girls or womens are muslims.

    Religions are not god made...........

    two types of religions that I thnk are

    1 ) Religion which means good thinking , respect everyone , love humanity
    2 ) Religion which impose such rules on bodies.......like muslim Sunat ,beared, topi , hindus Bodi, seven tilaks on body , sikhs baptised or to keep hairs

    people can easily accept #1 but why peoples are not accepting #2 ?

    tell me....and this time your language shud b polite as I used .....

    Let me try to answer your questions first

    Writing Lol is very minor things on forum and I called your statistics baseless because you write something which is not even remotely close to be true like saying 90% of Problems
    are because of Religion.No one in this world is going to believe this statement..

    I recomend you to read about Hitlers religious views.Nazi not only killed jews they also killed lots of Other people.Nazi's were against jews because of racial reasons not because of Religious reasons.One thing is very clear about Nazi's is that they were not hardcore christians and Religion was not even close to in there mind when they killed jews.

    Whether Religion is god made or made The fact is Religion is their in this world.In guru granth sahib it is written that everything happens with god's will if there are Religions
    then it is God's will too.

    Also There were lot of Hindu bhagats that rejected hindu practices ,but today there followers are hindu's.So many sufi saints rejected some practices of islam but today there followers are muslims,so in political environment of many places of world it is difficult to escape Religion.
    Do You know the census of India is going on and any person including Atheists who is not going to describe his/her Religion will be considered as hindu,so any Indian citizen if he will shout that he does not belong to any religion will be considered as hindu.

    I don't get your point ? There are people who accept 1) and there are people who accept 2)

    You can easily find converted muslims,sikhs etc believing in sunat beard ,Amrit etc.Sometimes converted people are more hardcore follower of the religion in which they converted.So it depends on indivisual thinking

    Its what u think and are may not be always right. wat say?? :happymunda:
    U are finiding it tough to keep hairs dat may be the only problem. no issues with that. Are u following other things asked in Sikh Religion provided u want to follow Sikhism??
    ਚਰਨ ਸਰਨਿ ਗੁਰ ਏਕ ਪੈਡਾ ਜਾਇ ਚਲ
    charan saran gur eaek paidda jae chal

    ਸਤਿ ਗੁਰ ਕੋਟਿ ਪੈਡਾ ਆਗੇ ਹੋਇ ਲੇਤ ਹੈ ॥
    sath gur kott paidda agae hoe laeth hai ||

    U are wrong here. u can do all this without following any religion. Isn't it??

    Waheguru Sattbudhi bakhshe (firstly to me)

    take care.

    I am trying to piece together the flow of the discussion on this thread. Here is the opening statement

    The reference to "faggots" should have been deleted with a warning to Nirmaljot. The use of negative labeling most often tells us that a person is more than willing to set up lines of division, in other words carve up the world in to I and the Other, making it much easier to get conflict started. Also very much a denial of the message of Guru Nanak.

    Next the writer says that it is religion that divides us. Following a comment by kds1980 ji who disagreed, Nirmaljot ji then became very abusive. The post should not have been allowed to stand. I have deleted it.

    However, a.mother ji did pick up on the lack of maturity and she did ask him to address his immaturity.

    At this point, I do not understand how the video in the last post fits? Ambarsaria ji, you may want to explain more explicitly for my benefit how the video and the threats posed by babas are related to the thread more directly. I am having an especially hard time connecting them to Nimaljot's issues, and what kds1980 ji had to say.

    Thank you.
