Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh


Guru Ji has stopped the caste system. Then howcome there are caste systems in Sikhism and how has it come about and how can i contribute to help stop it.

Can i just tell you a story that you can publish.
It is true.
Once when my father went to Africa and he told me about it.
In Africa there is a Gurdwara. A black man takes care of the Gurdwara. He took care of the Gurdwara with so much love. Then one night outside the Gurdwara he heard the sound of a horse and he turned to look. He saw someone sitting on a horse with arms and a nice face. The next day he told someone about this and then he happened to see the potrait of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. He told the person that the man he saw looked like Guru Gobind Singh Ji the one in the picture.

Well is it possible that this man actually saw Guru Gobind Singh Ji and the Nela kora?
Please answer my question.
Thank You

Dear Jasdeep singh,

caste system has nothing to do with Sikhism. A caste system is in place in order to control people. The control tools are things like wealth and skin color etc. It is and will always be an evil way of doing things. It is the way to keep men down and to not allow the equality that is the birthright to happen. It is a system that was created to keep the Rich rich and the poor poor and that is all it will ever be. Anyone who accepts a caste system in the Sikh religion is directly against the ideas and beliefs of the GURU'S and they are wrong. You should always treat everyone as an equal. You can help stop it by doing the right thing yourself and setting an example. Can you believe the stupidity of people who think and act as if people who are darker in color are worse than them. Those same people are the worst in this whole situation. Please do not ever in your life contribute to this backwards way of thinking.

The story of the devoted Black man in Africa is an incredibly wonderful story. Here is a man who dedicates his life to the care of a Gurdwara and there are many people who are Sikhs who do not have the same dedication. dont you think that if the story is true he deserved to have the honor.

Thank you very much for your question Jasdeep and thank you even more for the great story. Have a good time

WAHE GURU JI KA KHALSA WAHE GURU JI KI FATEH
