How To Avoid Religious Conflict Within!
By Balbir Singh Sooch, Advocate,
Kirt karro, naam jappo, wand
chhakko, we may interpret these terms differently, but there is no
doubt, ‘Sri Guru Granth Sahib’ is purely secular in real sense to be
followed religiously and otherwise also. However, we are not
supposed to compel others, saying time has come when all should
adopt Sri Guru Granth Sahib as it depends totally on a choice and
option or directly proportional to awareness and the sanity of each
individual to follow or not to follow in a particular and specific
manner the Granth.
When, we start dictating it religiously, it means, we
are trying to establish our supremacy over the others and from that
point onward conflict starts.
I personally follow my Sikh religion in the following
fashion pointed out in my articles and the same religion being
followed by others in different fashion and I should have no
conflict with them.
My following articles may further help to clarify my
views on Sikh religion and Sri Guru Granth Sahib:
