As Guru Nanak was born a Hindu, i do not see the problem with mentioning the word Hinduism. It is, afterall several Hindutva organizations that make the claim. One does not have to reinforce the truth. The truth stands on its own. I know of no Sikhs who claim to be a branch of Hinduism.

Many Christians believe, i 've heard them say it, that Jesus was not a Jew. Yet Jesus was never a Christian as he was seeking to turn his religion back to its basis and get rid of the senseless rituals and greed that had creeped into even the Jewish temple.

While Guru Nanak was the source of Sikhi, he also practised what he expounded thinking that Hinduism had denegrated into a bunch of senseless rituals and that many of the Muslim faith had also lost sight of Islam's tenets of peace and sharing and devolved into the savagery of our ancient animal brain ( the Gu portion of all our minds) of which the actions and behaviors of Guru Arjan, Guru Hargobind, Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Sing were supreme examples of overcoming the tendancy to strike back and get revenge when attacked or wronged.

The Khalsa was created only as a force to defend against attackers to protect others attacked. When on these pages i read of Sikhs killing Sikhs for political gains and power, i have to wonder what would the Nanaks think.

Just wondering why the effort not to use the word.Allenwalla 23:26, 14 March 2008 (MDT)
