Will and Guy publish our favourite Sardar
or Sadar-Ji jokes to entertain. We seek to honour and to publicise Sikh
humour, we do not mean to show any
disrespect to the Sikh communities throughout the world.
Sardar, is a Persian word which tends to be used for military or
political leaders because the roots of the word mean commander, perhaps
comparable to the English word, chieftain. In Pakistan, for example, the
leaders of certain tribes have the title Sardar. [Balochi, Kashmiri, Pashtun,
Punjabi, Seraiki, Sindhi].
However, in India the word often refers to a male follower of the Sikh
faith; sometimes the word - Ji, is added and this denotes respect.
Sometimes, in India, the Punjabi and Hindi: Sardar, is used derogatorily and
he is considered as an "idiot" and the butt of many jokes perhaps rather in
the same way as "blondes".
As can be seen elsewhere on our site Will and Guy deplore any form of
racism, but we do understand the place of stereotypes in society. On this
occasion we feel the same about Sardar humour. We see it rather like the
attitude of say the Americans towards the Canadians; the English towards the
Irish or the Scots. The Welsh towards the English. Elsewhere we find that "Poms"
[British people] are the butt of Australian jokes. Belgians fall foul of the
French; while The German deprecate the Dutch in their humour.
