    Read the whole article and the comments and perhaps you might understand what the issue is really about. If Jay Leno called Sikhs Diaper Heads then that could easily be classed as hate speech and action taken against him. I have yet to see that video. The joke he told was on Romney and not on the Sikhs. It doesn't ridicule Sikhs, it just shows that Durbar Sahib was the most valuable place they could find to show how rich Romney is. If you live in the West then you have to understand the concept of freedom of speech. Calling someone a diaper head is not protected by freedom of speech but the joke on Romney is. It's interesting that three Indian govt ministers and their offices have gone into overdrive to 'defend' the Sikhs against Leno's joke and yet they haven't lifted a finger on issues like 1984 genocide and the Dastar ban in French schools. People need to be aware of how the Indian govt and that arch traitor Manmohan Singh is playing the Sikhs. The plan is to give Americans the impression that Sikhs are against freedom of speech something which a majority of Americans are prepared to even take up arms to defend. Given this impression when a real issue comes to the fore such as 1984 or Bhai Davinderpal Singh Bhullar these same Indian ministers will be dismissing Sikhs as terrorists in the American media.

    Hey guys, I've been reading up on how hard it is for women to keep kesh. Personally, I've been shaving my legs and plucking my eyebrows since I was around eight years old. Since then, I don't think I've ever let my hair grow naturally. I'm going to try not cutting any of my hair. (I'm not Sikh by the way, for those who don't know)

    Even though vaisakhi is months away. I think this is a good time to discuss what we (Canadian Sikhs) can do differently this year in Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan Floats. Its no exaggeration to say that public opinion of sikhs (let alone our cause-exposing human right abuses in India) in general in Canada is very low. Whilst, we don't need European settlers here to validate our cause, still we need some what public support from Canadian mass. I have been reading history of first nation natives people here in Canada. Their history is very similiar to us when it comes to systematic racism, systematic funneling of drugs in reserve to kill their heritage, lineage, youth, education. Ideologically speaking, their belief system is also very similar to ours. Their love towards nature (vahiguroo creation) and spirts (shaheeds) keeping things balance. First nation warriors are also fearless just like our warriors. Just like how we revered - Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa Bhindranwale as our revolutionary leader. They also have their own revolutionary leader- Louis Reil. He was militant and led resistance movement against Canadian Gov't. He is considered folk here in Canada by all. You can read more about him here: http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Louis_Riel I believe it would perfect idea to have huge posters of Louis Riel and Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale side by side. Pictures speak thousands words, people can easily relate to pictures over thousand words of biography. While organizers agree, might as well throw picture of Che Guevara poster there. No need to throw speeches, spreading pamphlets in hope to bring awareness of sikh freedom fighters or to win public opinion. Pictures speak thousand words, putting huge posters of these revolutionary leaders side by side not only we could win some sort of public opinion but also it will show Sikhs pay respect to all the revolutionary leaders not just their own ones. I see things from eagle eye or western goggles, when i see shaheed floats as an outsider in the vaishakhi nagar kirtan. I just see - tribal issues, tribal groups, self interested group trying to shove tribal issues of their countries to throat of Canadians. We must be better than that, lets try diversifying the float little bit. We may not win public opinion of European settlers here, but surely can try to unify with first nation people(real Canadians) and their cause and cubans here. While this thread is more related to first nation Canadian natives..i believe all the native people of the globe (red indians in USA, aborginal in Australia) have same painful chapter in history of systematic racism and abuse in hands of European settlers and have fearless native warriors which have shown fearless resistance.

    Does anyone understand what this person says in any of his posts? Mods should have a rule. Either use proper English/punjabi or be banned. No one should have to take 5 minutes to decipher what this post says

    THIS IS A DISGUSTING ACT!! im very sad to hear this madam, i reckon YOU MUST tell the police. also this may sound silly, but do you know who this guy was? was he a guy who wanted revenge on you, or was he a random gandha bandha? if he is someone you kno and have identified, then in my opinion, get a group of chardi kala singhs together and KILL HIM!! BADLA BADLA BADLA. But if he is an unidentifed random person then you MUST tell the police. grow strength too madam, read jaap sahib

    Thank you for your feedback Phaji. The mal mal royal blue dastaar was accidently set up incorrectly. With this item in your basket you would not have been able to order. If you try again, it should all work

    WaheGuru Ji Ka Khalsa, WaheGuru Ji Ki Fateh! Congratulations to you all. Well done. It was not long ago someone on the forum was asking about a business idea and this was one of them suggested. I am so happy that we will have someone UK based. Ordered some stuff from the Website Sikhstuff.com. Very poor service, Kacheray arrived dirty and marked. Kirpan I ordered didn;t arrive. I am still in dispute with these guys. Guru Mahraj Bless you in the Sewa you are doing. :waheguru: Thanks WaheGuru Ji Ka Khalsa, WaheGuru Ji Ki Fateh!
