Why it is not fair to have Alchohal and other drugs ...


Recommended Posts

Salutations fellow,

I want a fair discussion on the said topic that why we(Sikh) are not allowed to have alcohal and other type of agents(drugs etc.) which cause/check our senses to work properly.

I encounter a few people in my near sociaty who recommend such agents as energy boosters & never have any hesitation to have them. As per them in Sikhi only to killing of other creatures (JEEV HATYA) is a sin, but to have alchohal or other such natural agents is not a sin at all. Even if i often hear about some Amritdhari Sikhs to have such drinks and some Nihangans to have those agents(Bhang/ Sukha etc.)

Please give UR viewpoints with some good examples & logics.



If Sikhi don't allow to have them then why they do so.

I M the first to have against all such agents. I M giving a story to have my fair views towards the question.....


On the last day before Christmas, i hurried to go to the supermarket to buy

the remaining of the gift I didn't manage to buy earlier. When I saw all

the people there, I started to complain to myself:'It is going to take

forever here and I still have so many other place to go...'

'Christmas really is getting more and more annoying every year. How I wish

I could just lie down, go to sleep and only wake up after it...'

Nonetheless, I made my way to the toy section, and there I started to curse

the prices, wondering if after all kids really play with such expensive


While looking in the toy section, I noticed a small boy of about 5

years old,pressing a doll against his chest.

He kept on touching the hair of the doll and looked so sad. I wondered who

was this doll for. Then the little boy turned to the

old woman next to him: 'Granny, are you sure I don't have enough


The old lady replied: 'You know it that you don't have enough money to buy

this doll, my dear.' Then she asked him to stay here for 5 minutes while

she went to look around. She left quickly. The little boy was still

holding the doll in his hand.

Finally, I started to walk toward him and I asked him who did he want to

give this doll to.'It is the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so

much for this Christmas. She was so sure that Santa Clauss would bring it

to her.

'I replied to him that maybe Santa Clauss will bring it to her,

after all, and not to worry.

But he replied to me sadly.

No, Santa Clauss can not bring it to her where she is now. I have

to give the doll to my mother so that she can give it to her when she goes


His eyes were so sad while saying this.

'My sister has gone to be with God. Daddy say that Mummy will also

go to see God very soon, so I thought that she could bring the

doll with her to give it to my sister' My heart nearly stopped.

The little boy looked up at me and said:'I told daddy to tell mummy not to

go yet. I asked him to wait until I come back from the supermarket'Then he

showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing.He then told me:I

also want mummy to take this photo with her so that she will not forget


'I love my mummy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me but daddy

says that she has to go to be with my little sister'

Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly.

quickly reached for my wallet and took a few notes and said to the

boy.'What if we checked again, just in case if u have enough money?''Ok' he

said. 'I hope that I have enough.'I added some of my money to his without

him seeing and we started to count it. There was enough for the doll, and

even some spare money.

The little boy said: 'Thank you God for giving me enough money'

Then he looked at me and added:'I asked yesterday before I slept for God to

make sure I have enough money to buy this doll so that mummy can give it to

my sister. He heard me'I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white

rose for my mummy, but I didn't dare to ask God too much. But He gave me

enough to buy the doll and the white rose.'You know, my mummy loves white


A few minutes later, the old lady came again and I left with my

trolley.I finished my shopping in a totally different state from when I

started. I couldn't get the little boy out of my mind.

Then I remembered a local newspaper article 2 days ago,which mentioned of a

drunk man in a truck who hit a car where there was one young lady and a

little girl.The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a

critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the

life-assisting machine, because the young lady would not be able to get out

of the coma.

was this the family of the little boy?

Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the

newspaper that the young lady had passed away. I couldn't stop myself and

went to buy a bunch of white roses and went to the mortuary where the body

of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wish before

burial.She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her

hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest.

I left the place crying, feeling that my life had been changed

forever.The love that this little boy had for his mother and his sister is

still, to that day, hard to imagine.

And in a fraction of a second, a drunk man had taken all this away

from him.
