Religious values should be central to life

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

“Bhindranwale toured the villages in Punjab exhorting Sikhs to return to the puritanical ways of the Khalsa and enjoined them to bear the Khalsa symbols. He was actively engaged in proselytizing activities. An essential feature of his preaching was that religious values should be central to life. Bhinranwale’s remarkable ability to quote religious texts when delivering sermons enabled him to establish a rapport with his audience. He urged his congregations to undercut the spread of consumerism in family life and abstain from degenerative consumption of drugs and alcohol, the two main vices afflicting rural society in Punjab. Bhindranwale crusade for social reform denounced customs, such as the giving of dowries, and endorsed a simple lifestyle. Bhindranwale rapidly acquired a considerable following.”

Why terrorism flourished during his time?
The aftershock of his action led the whole community to suffer in 1984 sequence of events that caused more than 10thousand sikhs dead.

We are probably not spreading the real message of sikhism that our great GURUs gave to the world during their respective times.

Rule the hearts & NOT the a small piece of Punjab land as the So called Khalistan.
