Rakhdi : Thread Of Strength – By SikhFeed

Posted By on March 5, 2020


Daddy, my friends say that Rakhdi is a Hindu custom and we as Sikhs should not celebrate it Son, our Gurus have taught us that women are not weak, rather they are self-sufficient in defending themselves under any circumstance. They need affection and respect and not protection. This is why; few Sikh brothers are against this tradition Ok Daddy, from now on I will also not celebrate this festival Son, our Gurus had also taught us to respect other religions and their customs and this festival is close to your sister’s heart. She had handmade this Rakdhi for you Therefore, you should not break her heart today. Go and let your sister tie Rakhdi on your hand and give her this gift Ok Father Go Now! Brother, please give me your hand Brother, my Gift Son, please come downstairs, your sister is here Sat Shri Aakal Brother Sat Shri Aakal Nikku, your husband hasn’t come No Brother, he had some urgent work to do Urgent work today, but….) Leave that aside, you please sit here Sister, I know why you have come alone. Today heart of every brother skips a beat imagining what if his sister become a victim to the evils that are being directed against the women in our society Brother, please give me your hand This is the only question that haunts me that god forbids if something bad happens to you, how will I safeguard you? Brother, my gift! Hmmm…first close your eyes Brother, this? Dear Sister, who am I to protect you, our Gurus have always taught us that woman can protect themselves. Dear sister, I cannot be with you always but your strength and pride always will You have an own identity of your own and under no circumstance or pressure let that identity fade away Never let negative situation overpower you. Your identity as a Sister, mother or daughter is your strength and not a weakness. Never let anyone dictate, force or under power you with their strength or pressure First, try to solve the situation with patience and humility. But if things turn for worse, don’t hesitate to pull out the sword Today on this day, all I can wish is that irrespective where I go, I have an assurance in my heart that my little sister will not only take care of herself but also of her family Gurkeerat, take care of your sister

  2. SIkhs protect 24/7 not because of a rakhdi but because Guru sikhiya , har lady is our sister, har man brother . Rakhdi and doing arti of humans is not our path, ours is a higher path besides where is his kara?

  5. What an ill-informed video! Sikhs emphatically are not to celebrate Rakhdi/Raksha Bandhan:

    There are many Sikhs around the world that insist on Rakhdi/Raksha Bandhan ceremony. Sikhs absolutely are not supposed to participate in this festival. On Raksha Bandhan, sisters tie a rakhi (sacred thread) on her brother's wrist. This symbolizes the sister's love and prayers for her brother's well-being, and the brother's lifelong vow to protect her.

    This very concept implies that women are weaker than men and therefore need their protection. This is in direct conflict with Guru Nanak Dev Ji's philosophy regarding women as described in the following:
    From woman, (man) is born; within woman, (man) is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married. With woman

    (man) establishes friendship; through woman, the future generations come. When woman dies, (man) seeks another

    woman; because of woman, (man) becomes related (to other people – ਲੈਣ-ਦੇਣ ਦੇ ਸਾਰੇ ਸੰਸਾਰਕ ਬੰਧਾਨੁ, etc.). From her,

    (even) kings are born; so why call her bad? From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all. (sggs 473).

    It is also very much against the Khalsa Rehat, where women and men take amrit equally! Therefore, the idea that women should tie a thread to their brother's wrist for "protection" is very much against the concept of equality, and ignores the roles played by Sikh women in history that didn't need any man for protection. Some examples are:

    Mata Gujri Jee
    Mata Ganga Dev Jee
    Mai Bhago
    Rani Sada Kaur
    Mata Jito Jee
    Bibi Rajni
    Mata Kishan Kaur

    And many, many others! Mata Gujri Jee displayed more strength than that of 1000 of the strongest men combined and didn't need anyone's protection except for Akal Purakh.

    Please stop spreading your nonsense and confusing impressionable youth.

  8. Ask sisters to buy Kirpan and take Amrit they can save themselves and others .

    Guru Nanak philosophy is against any threads .

    Grow up idiots .

  9. Firstly, well done on your intention of promoting Gurmat. I understand you wish to explain that there is no need to tie a Rakhri but a woman should protect herself, however, the video posted gives a mixed message. At one point it says "Some Sikhs don't believe in celebrating Rakhri", then it says "Rakhri is a Hindu festival." But sadly, the father says to the child, "Don't break anyone's heart and therefore have a Rakhri tied." It seems a very mixed message compared to the ending. Not all the Sikh characters are not wearing Karas and it seems to be confusing.

  10. Sikhs abuse Hindus everywhere and then claim that they protected Hindus. In reality, Sikhs are no different from Muslims.
