Guru Phateh!


I've pretty much been confused about Khalistan lately. Reading the previous topics about Khalistan, it seems like you guys are against it. I've found some reasons why Khalistan is important for us, and I just wanted your opinion.

-'Guru Gobind Singh Ji said: "Raj Bina Nahin Dharam Chale Hain, Dharam Bina Sab Dalle Malle Hain" which literally means that sovereignty is a MUST in order for a religion to survive; otherwise religion perishes.'
-And like said before, our Gurus believed in creating harmony between different faiths so that all of us could live together as children of the same God. But then what if those faiths turn against us? Then what? Aren't we supposed to fight for our rights as said by Guru Gobind Patshah?

It would be nice to read your opinions. Thanks for your time.

Guru Ang Sang!

Sat nam. Understand there is a huge difference between spiritual and political sovereignty. Guru Gobind Singh fought for all people to have the right to worship as they choose, freely, without force of any kind, whether social, peer, or political. This kind of freedom is spiritual sovereignty. Speaking personally, I do not for a moment think that he fought for Sikhs to rule others politically. Khalistan as most folks understand it today is a political dream, not a spiritual reality. Guru ang sang,
