  • Why do Pakistani people hate Sikhs?
     OP - November 10, 2011, 04:05 AM

    This is just an observation. Pakistani people say Sikh's have half a brain, and whenever you do something stupid they tell you to "stop acting like a Sikh". Why is that?

    I've heard a lot of anti Pakistani/Muslim comments from Sikhs towards pakistanis but not so much the other way around. The hatred and bigotry I think is caused by the volatile history of the Sikhs with the Mughals and also because of all the violence and massacres in 1947 when the subcontinent was split into India and Pakistan. Punjab literally got torn apart then.

    I was a convert to Islam so most of my interaction has been with Hindus and Sikhs (Hindus and Sikhs in my family btw) so I heard a lot of anti Pakistani comments.

    As Abood mentioned, that is an over generalisation. It is widely assumed that Pakistani and Indian Muslims and Sikhs hate each other and there are elements that do. However, scratch beneath the surface and you will see that Pakistanis and Sikhs probably get along quite well. You have to remember that Pakistanis and Sikhs are very culturally similar if you take out the religion element. On a whole, there is probably less animosity between Pakistanis and Sikhs than between most other ethnic groups.

    I live in a city with a large Pakistani and Sikh population and there is certainly not a problem of Muslim/Sikh animosity. I think this whole "Muslims vs Sikhs" thing is totally exaggerated.

    When I was a young young child I went to Pakistan and heard all kinds of jokes about Sikhs. Something about ‘uskay bara bajgay!’ as in when it struck 12 o’clock Sikhs supposedly went mad. Presumably if you were with a Sikh when the clock struck 12 he would be M. Bara Singh Wink.

    Yes, yes we hate Sikhs, so much so that we keep their gurdwaras available for them to visit, and Nankana Sahib which is effectively owned by sikhs (and a decent population full of them). Oh the hate is strong! THE HATE!

    Well VHD sarcasm aside., The reality is., In Islam with Muslim majority ., unless other minorities live like Dhimmis and do not participate in politics, do not go in to high end economic/social positions, it is O.K.,  other wise  their life will be in trouble..

    Let me give you the 2011 news clip.. Punjab government bar Sikh Community to celebrate festival in Lahore
    Quote
    Pakistan: July 18, 2011. (PCP) Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Group PML (N) led government in Punjab province of Pakistan is under immense pressure of Islamic radicals and band outfit terrorist organizations that not feels shame in monthly imbursement to a family of jailed leader of banned Islamic group nor to punish Islamic Jihadists who burnt alive seven Christian women and Children alive in Gojra city of Punjab.

    On July 16, 2011, Punjab government deployed police contingent at Sikh Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh in Naulakha Bazar Lahore, to banned entry of Sikh Community members who had to celebrate religious rituals.

    The Lahore administration, acted on warning of one Islamic Jihadists group who claimed that musical hymns of Sikh Community can disturb prayers of Muslims who are celebrating their feast f Shabe-e-Barat on July 17, 2011.

    July 17, 2011, is celebrated as Shabe-e-Barat festival, which Islamic world claims that Prophet Mohammad rode a flying horse to reach to heaven to meet almighty God.

    Fundamentals aside, in Pakistani cinema Sikh's are portrayed in a positive light.

    If this was about Hindu's I would understand as Pakistani media traditionally has stereotyped and antagonised them (and so too have they of the Muslims in their media). On the other hand Sikhs usually fill in the good guy on the bad side role.

    Last time I was in Pakistan (about a year ago) there had seemed to be some problems at Nankana with a stand-off with Sikhs pulling swords on the opposition which composed of students. So sure it is not perfect, but I doubt an event like that would slide if the Pakistan population had real hatred for them. I have been to Nankana, the Sikhs there are very militant but that does not surprise me. Religion + hostile environment does that. Still, things are getting better, they are building a University for the Sikh religion there now (assuming it wasn't cancelled), that's improvement in my books. (although probably more problems for later down the road)

    Of course if you speak about fundamentals they hate them, but they hate everyone, Pakistanis included.

    The most well known piece of Sikh entertainment was a film called Singh is Kinng, here's how it was received in Pakistan.

    http://www.hindustantimes.com/world-news/Pakistan/Singh-is-Kinng-in-Pakistan-too/Article1-335076.aspx

    And from here: http://www.naachgaana.com/2008/08/10/pakistan-in-a-frenzy-over-singh-is-kinng-170-per-show-collections/

    Quote
    The unparalleled frenzy continues in Pakistan. Singh is Kinng doing in the country what even their own films have not been able to do. Taj Mahal cinema in Faisalabad was sold out all day today and for the 9 PM show they had to accommodate another 350 people at the show due to the crowd desperate to watch the move. The capacity is 500 but for this show there were 850 people sitting on the floor wherever space was available.


    Which renders the following statement:

    It's usually the hindus of India that poke fun at sikhs. In most other representation of sikhs in bollywood movies I am led to believe they usually fill the roll of the drunk/fall guy/patsy. Sikhs from India are allowed  to visit their shrines situated in Pakistan. And if they can do that safely in a country like Pakistan, that is sorta saying something.

    This may well be true. Imran has taken a religious turn but it seems unlikely that he will ever have enough support to gain power.
