The Worlds View of Sikhism


Recommended Posts


Sat Sri Akaal

In light of what is happening in France there are a couple of surveys I think you would all find quite interesting on www.surveygalaxy.com. From the home page go to Public surveys > Top 20 Best > and you will find the first one ranked 3rd and entitled "Religious education in schools - What are your views?". The second is entitled "Sikhs Only - The Sikh Education System" and can be found at http://www.surveygalaxy.com/surPublishes.asp?survey_Id=1181. The password for this one is WJKKWJKF (CAPS).

A couple of the results were quite encouraging; when asked "Should schools teach children the predominant religion(s) of their country?" 48% replied "No - they should be taught a broad understanding of religion and philosophy". When asked "When you meet people of different religious persuasions other than your own, or people who have no religious beliefs, what do you do?" 67% replied "Respect that their beliefs are different". However, others were quite surprising; When asked "How much do you personally know of Sikhism?" 26% replied "Never heard of it".

just because a child says "respect that their beliefs are different" it doesn't necessarily mean that kids understand that. i can tell you that having done some research myself, a lot of people tend to say what they think is right but if you watch them, they do the exact opposite. i'm not trying to be pessimistic, but that's how it is.
