Is this the language we use for Sikh Heroes?

How can a Sikh use this kind of language while describing the holy Shahids? Is this neo-Gangstar Sikhism what we wish to portray to the world, and the youth? If a non-Sikh had written this, what would be the response?


I’ve already shared one Badass with everyone, now it’s time to drop another.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that the majority of my readers aren’t exactly experts on Indian history, so it’s probably a safe assumption that you’re not familiar with the story of the Sikh martyr Baba Deep Singh. Well, it’s time to get educated — because this dude is one of the most hardcore freedom fighters to ever live, and a guy so extreme balls-out in his insatiable quest for vengeance that something as inconsequentially-trivial as being fucking decapitated couldn’t stop him from crushing his enemies to death with his nutsack.

Just for the record. A Sikh DID NOT write that post. It was pasted from: www.badassoftheweek.com, which is run by a non sikh person. He's actually white just in case you were wondering.

And I'm ok with the language since the guy actually took time to do the research on Baba Deep Singh Ji and just educated masses of people who would normally not read anything to do with Sikhi.

Next time you wanna call somebody out, please, do your research.

I think what he wrote was extremely disrespectful, being a sikh, white, blue or green doesn't really matter. We have an obligation to uphold the respect of our shaheeds. You say he educated masses of people, so it should be ok.

So if your father does a good deed and I go and write this article with language you find disrespectful like maan he was baad mutherf**er. You think it would be ok. If he did his research he should realise no historian has ever bigged up sikh shaheeds with such disrespectful language.

We don't need the acceptance of these masses!! We need to keep the respect of our Mahan Shaheeds intact
