why do we keep disagreeing on 1984? Why is our religion and it's people asleep as so called "greats of the panth" attack Sri Dasam Granth and Rehat Maryada? What are the problems? Why have we not been able to shake of caste? Why are we so uneducated that we fail to win over the argument when hindus and muslims suggest we are a part of them? Why is a khalistani marked out as a terrorist? So many questions what are the answers? Please discuss I would like to know what people think

Can I just draw people's attention to one thing, so that anyone who comes on this thread can know:
Sikh men and women wear turbans. The religion is based on equality, and does not tell only one sex to cover their heads. Most Sikh women don't wear turbans through their own choice.

Because we're stupid. We are still influenced by Brahamanical culture, which seeks to be patriarchal and create separations through a pathetic caste system. We would rather be part of a flashy, glamorous culture, regardless of what Sikhi actually says. We follow the culture of those who oppress us... of those who portray Sikhs to be total idiotic drunkards through their Bollywood films, those who named their country "Hindustan" even though Sikhs also live in it, and those who are trying to kill us off and have been for years. Ironic, right.

We were shown an amazing path. Guru Nanak Dev Ji stopped sati; the act of Hindu women having to burn themselves alive after their husbands died. Langar, the Guru's kitchen, is open to everyone of all sexes, races and religions; we all sit on the floor to symbolise our equality. A rich king or a poor beggar, no one is greater than the other. Guru ji gave us the names "Singh" and "Kaur" so that there were no further separations based on a person's last name, which indicates their caste. Guru ji declared that we should not believe in the caste system, and instead, "Recognise the entire human race as one." And look at us now; we have separate Gurdwaras based on caste, because we just can't seem to get along. We wear huge khanda chains and rep our caste, as if it's something to be extremely proud of that our ancestors were farmers or something.
We have so much ego and pride that we want to boast about something as insignificant as our caste. We don't listen to our Guru's teachings, instead we do what we want and call ourselves Sikhs... it's like a slap in the face really.
Those are my views anyway.
