Nicha Andar Neech Jaat, Nichi Ho att Neech
Nanak Tin Kae Sang Saath Vadean Seon kyaa rees - Nanak
This article is about some Sikhs who are ignoring the teachings of our Gurus, Sikhs (?) who are talking and doing things that leaves one to ask if they only look like Sikhs but do not follow any of the Guru's teachings.
Jaatpaat or Jaatwaad is an anti-Sikh philosophy of some who have been born into communities that even today consider themselves to be 'upper status'. It is discrimination based on ones Jaat or caste. Sikhism as taught by those who the Sri Guru Granth Sahib refers to as Gurus (Guru Nanak through Guru Gobind Singh) could not have made it any clearer - their is no caste - no human is created with any less of Waheguru's 'light' than any other.
Only humans have continued this belief. When one can only feel better about himself, his accomplishments, whether he is important at all, he makes himself feel better, closer to God or of a 'higher rank' by seeing or creating, someone else as inferior. This is the essence of Jaat or varna.
The Kartar has created our fingers in different lengths. Yet some people who call themselves Sikhs, who look like Sikhs are wanting to be the 'middle' finger on basis of their caste or race. As people had done long before our Gurus - they are still doing today. Sikhs ought to know better; have they forgotten what they have been taught or did they ever learn. Jattwaad is also a part of Brahminwaad which was totally rejected.
Jattism is a new term introduced by these egoistic and arrogant persons, who take excessive pride in being born as Jatts or other 'higher' communities. This topic is not about Hindu Jatts or Muslim Jatts, but about those Jatts who born in Sikh religion who take more pride in the community (caste) than they do in their religion and its tenants. Having pride isn't wrong, but treating people of the so called lower classes (socially) badly, based on their birth is against all the teachings of our Gurus.
The feeling is prominent among young people whose parents are not giving them proper guidance. They are straying from their faith by having "Ahankaar" (egoist pride) in their mind, thinking that they belong to some higher society and thinking of others are lower. As Guru Gobind Rai ji became Guru Gobind Singh these people are still sticking to their old name using their clan as Surname and today some are even Ignoring Singh as their middle name or surname.
Sikhism is totally against Casteism and racism. If Jattwaad will continue in Sikhs then it would led to problems which Sikhs faced during times of Gurus who survived so much to remove caste system or racism. Many bhakti period saints such as Nanak, Kabir, Caitanya, Dnyaneshwar, Eknath, Ramanuja and Tukaram rejected all caste-based discrimination and accepted disciples from all the castes. Guru Gobind Singh Sahib gave Singh as a surname to Sikh man to remove all caste feelings so one should follow his gurus teachings too.

NO RESPONSE SILENT!!!!!!
The above all shows the Jattwaad in a 19 year old youth. As we know that on one side Dhanna was a jatt and Sain too but on other side Kabir was a weaver and both attain the same value in Guru Granth Sahib both praises lord and know they are the bhagats whoose bani is in Guru granth sahib. Gurus never considered high caste low caste even guru granth sahib, our present true guru also dunno allow to beleve in this then then Why jattwaad is increasing the hell is in punjab???
Guru nanak praises jatt community a lot as he called this community is community of hard work. BUt Nanak also says - moondd muddaae jattaa sikh baadhhee mon rehai abhimaanaa || - Nanak.
Jattaa bhasam laepan keeaa kehaa gufaa mehi baas || - Kabir
fareedhaa lorrai dhaakh bijoureeaaan kikar beejai jatt || Kabir
This all is not only for Jatts the other communities also have same nature who thik that they are superior to other. Like in community Ramgarhia, Tarkhan, Saini, Labana, Rajput, Khatri, Aroras considered themselves of high status then others they have ego of their link also with warrior destination. Sly, arora considered as top leval khatris. in jatts also their are inter - community -castial matters. like randhawa have more status then sandhu.
