Bharam (Illusion/doubt)

Veer ji,

Many thanks for the message. I have just setup a redirect to Sikhism and Ritualism which I think covers much of what "Bharam" refers to. The other redirects from "Superstition" and from "Rituals", etc were a little messed-up and I have amended those as well.

I suggest that we make more additions to this page or use this as a starting point if you wish to start a new page.

Stages in Guru Gobind Singh's Life and Bharam

Veer ji, Sat Sri Akal

I have no objections to any of these 2 articles as long as we are not causing any duplication of work that may already be on the database. Please go ahead and create these articles.

Many thanks for your continued interest and dedication. Kind regards, Hari Singhtalk 13:43, 23 April 2012 (CDT)

Veer ji,

Yes, disambiguation is part of a wiki and we should use it for words and names where there is no clear predominate leader - For Example: Gobind should not come under disambiguation as we have a clear winner with Guru Gobind Singh. But for other words and names where we have multiple articles, then we need to create a disambiguation page.

However, we only need to do this if we have multiple names or words with articles already on our wiki. If we do not have articles then we should wait until we can create these multiple articles and then join them via a dis-ambiguous page.

Wales: Yes we have Sikhs in Wales; my niece and her husband live in Cardiff and many other Sikhs live in Wales.

Photos of slaughtering animals have been removed - this practise is against Gurbani

Veer ji, {Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh

The photos of Sikhs slaughtering animals have been removed - this practise is against Gurbani. A few Gurdwaras in the UK also practise anti-Sikhi rituals like this but I do not think SikhiWiki is here to promote anti-Gurbani practises. Please do not help to promote any anti-Gurmat rituals here. The site is here to give people the true meaning of the message of Guru Nanak - not how some Sikhs are disobeying this message.

Yes, i found second picture is not Fine as it was Ritual slaughtering but first one was Fine because it was not showing ritual slaughter but food is hanged simply like killed Potato, carrot or Reddish. Still, it is our duty to show these faces of Sikhism too that Ritual Slaughtering which was condemned, is prevalent in this form. If you can keep article of Deras, Anti Sikh people then why not these pictures?

Secondly, stop speaking that The site is here to give people the true meaning of the message of Guru Nanak - not how some Sikhs are disobeying this message. Don't be egoistic being a Nanak Panthi and always include every Gurmukh in your lines. Do you feel that other Bhagats, Bhatts, have separate message then Nanak? Moreover, Many Bhagats were born before Nanak and spread Gurmat around. May be you haven't talked in the way i have taken but try to a collective noun rather then picking single Bhagat out of 36. Thirdly, Promotion is other thing, what i did was not promotion. Was you promoted to do Jhatka? Well i feel Ritual Slaughtering is nice strike from your side.

Template - Dasam Granth Sidebar

Veer ji, Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh

A slightly different version of the template - Please see: Template:Dasam Granth Sidebar 2

If you need any modification please let me know.

Gurfateh. Kind regards, Hari Singhtalk 23:08, 11 December 2012 (CST)

Veerji, Gurfateh.

Firstly, please use the template 2 as you like - putting it into the original one seems a better option and then delete number 2.

Secondly, on the critic of Sikhi, it is better to cover this concept in different and separate articles as that way we can keep the different aspects of the issue in separate compartment and that will make it easier to control and monitor the articles.

We need to cover the general concept in the main article and then have the criticism concept covered in greater details in a separate article just as you have done. So the article on Dasam Granth should not deal with its critics but just about what it is, chapters and banis, its history, concepts covered, etc. The linked article which could be named 'Criticism of Dasam Granth' would deal with only this particular aspect.

I hope this helps. Kind regards, Hari Singhtalk 15:05, 12 December 2012 (CST)

Guru Fateh

Veer Ji, Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh

With Waheguru's blessings, I'm well; many thanks for asking. I hope you too are in chardikala.

We have been unable to automatically correct the Unicode corruption. Unfortunately, at present, we only have the option of fixing this manually. I have found no one who has the expertise to do this automatically. I have a feeling that there would be a way but at present we have not been able to find anyone who has been able to help.

We will keep trying to find the right person who can help fix our SikhiWiki database. I'm sorry not to gring you any good news on this issue. I will try again in the summer to contact a few technical experts on holidays from college to try and get some assistance. If I'm successful, I will keep you informed.

Veer ji Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh

Many thanks for your message.

I will review the issues that you have highlighted with this page and other pages connected to castes. However, I would like to share the fact that I was never too happy giving these pages prominence on SikhiWiki as caste should never play a dominant part in Sikhi. I remember that some of these pages highlighted various historic personalities under their "caste" - this is something which does not hold any importance to Sikhs. Just like God has no religion, Sikhs have no caste!

I will revert back to you after I have had time to look at all the pages.

Editing next to impossible for me

Veer Ji


I have got your message. I too have a slight issue with this but I can still manage. I will pass this to the technical people and revert back soon.
