Classmates Make Fun of Me (Quoting from an interesting debate going on at sikhnet) Quote: I am a amritdhari sikh of class 10th , I study in convent school and I am the only sikh in class. All my classmates make fun of me , then don't call me by name and just call Gyani and crack dirty jokes on me. I complained about it to my teachers, They warned them but still it was of no use, they did not stopped and doing it more. I asked them to stop . Also fought with them 2-3 times but i can't fight every time. Its not just the matter of school , in the play ground , tutions everywhere people laugh at me because i am a Sikh. I talked with my parents and they said to ignore me and change my thinking attitude but its not that easy. I stopped going out and playing because i don't like when other laugh at me. I want to be a sikh but I am not so brave that i can tolerate this all . I Go to gurdwara daily and do ardaas in front of guru granth saheb ji to save me from this but it was of no use. these things hurt me a lot and I can't do anything except crying inside a room. Please tell me what should i do? "Un-quote" This is a very important topic facing every Sikh youth of today... would be interesting to hear your personal experiences on this topic. Gurafteh!
