  1. Marijuana is an intoxicant. For a GurSikh, the fear of Waheguru is what intoxicates us. Clearly Guru Nanak Dev Ji says that instead of getting intoxicated on marijuana, Sikhs get immersed/intoxicated in Waheguru.

  2. No conspiracy veerji. Many innovations and deviations have crept into the Nihangs. Some amrit sanchaars of the Nihangs, they would administer a different Amrit to the so called lower castes. If this isn't an innovation what is? Same way their ritual Bhang and meat consumption is a part of this innovation and deviation. Just look at their Dastars. If one were to look at Nihang Dumallas a 100 years ago they were different and if you go back 100 year even before that they were even more different. So to say Nihangs of today are unchanged for the last 300 years is simply not true, sad fact is chan

  3. Jathedar Baba Hanuman Singh Ji Shaheed Fresco of Baba Hanuman Singh Ji at Gurdwara Baba Atal Rai, Amritsar Akaali Baba Hanuman Singh Ji, The 7th leader of the Budha Dal, was born to Baba Garja Singh Ji and Mata Harnam Kaur Ji in November 1755. Baba Ji fought in many great battles under the leadership of Akaali Baba Naina Singh Ji and Akaali Baba Phula Singh Ji (the 5th and 6th Jathedars of Budha Dal). After the Shaheedi of Akaali Phula Singh Ji at Naushera in 1823, Baba Hanuman Singh Ji became the leader of the Akaali Nihangs, as well as the Jathedar of Akaal Takht Sahib at the age of 68

  4. It's not a matter of whether the story is propogated by the UK n.angs or the Nihangs in India. It is about whether the story has an basis in reality. Maharaja Ranjit Singh had clipped the power of the Nihangs after Akali Phula Singh. so much so that the majority had shifted to Anandpur Sahib from Amritsar. Hence the possibilty that there are two mountains in the picture of Hanuman Singh implying that he would have spent most of his in the hills or that his base was there. We need to understand that an armed force of 15,000 or if we go by Nihang oral tradition 32,000 is a large number for that

  5. People do come up with fantasy stories especially when it concerns Nihangs. The reasons given for the murderous assault on Maharja Ranjit Singh was due to his allowing the British representatives to enter Punjab. If the Nihangs were so far sighted then why did they not assassinate the Dogras? It was the Lahore army which killed Hira Singh Dogra. The story about Sham Singh Attariwala appears to be an attempt to brush some of the glory of Sham Singh onto Hanuman Singh. Sham Singh had been a great general of the Khalsa army, he was a Jagirdar who would have paid for and supplied a jagirdari conti

  9. The Mongols often won before hand to hand fighting began because they would kill most of the opponent's army from a distance with their arrows. It's not the drug that wins the battle. It was superior battle tactics and professionalism introduced by Chingiz Khan that made the Mongols invincible. One needs to look no further than than India and see the example set by the Rajputs. The Rajput warriors were a very brave fighting army but before battle they would get drunk with Bhang. When facing the alert Pathans or Turks, the great Rajputs would often lose despite having superior numbers because

  10. Drinking Bhang is a deviation on the part of the Nihangs. Drinking Bhang is not a Guru created tradition. But over time this deviancy crept into the Sikh ranks. I suspect it must have originally been used after the battle to give to injured Sikh soldiers as a pain killer. But some may have gotten addicted to this and slowly Bhang turned into a permanent (yet deviant) tradition amongst the Nihangs. This is seen with many religious traditions through out the world where deviations and innovations creep into old religious orders and over time these very same deviations and innovations turn into f

  16. They were Hindu advisors that the Akalis loathed because they knew their colors. They brain washed MRS into doing a lot of bad things and making horrible decisions that contributed to the fall of the Sikh empire. There are medical reports of after MRS's death many honest GurSikhs of the court were assassinated at night time. The Nihangs actually tried to assassinate MRS once because they saw what was happening as they were very intelligent and had pure jeevans. A few of the first things these traitors did after the close fall of the empire was steal from the Khalsa treasury and buy land in Ka

  17. Well he kind of implied that when he said I can't call myself a keshdhari sikh. Anyway, I was trying to make a point, maybe I should have worded it differently, don't take it too literally (as I did say I'd batter someone if they harrassed a singh). He's basically saying wear the dastar, yeah its a war and that but fight for it and all that. What I'm saying is, I'm not going to fight a war (inside myself) only for the sake of wearing a pug. That will be a side effect that I will have to do. When I want to wear a pug, intrinsically (not just so that I can fight for it) then I will naturall

  27. Chatanga, Unlike you I don't need to name drop who I know or don't know. Unlike you I don't have associations with Taksal, SSF or any of the Akalis so I can take a detached view and do not have to tailors the facts to suit the party to whom I owe allegience. Your statement-; Just shows how naive you are and how ignorant you are of what the Durbar sahib under Khalistani control represented. When the Kharkoos took over the complex in 1986 that general feeling was that the miltants had taken their rightful place after the GOI had done it's worst to remove them in 1984.

People think that's a bad area, but those people were friendlier than the goreh downtown. Overall, most people don't bother you, unless you go looking for trouble. Now people go out of their way to talk to you.

People dress much stranger there and no one looks twice. Just use common sense Also, never be afraid to do anything because you are worried as how people will react. Wherever you go there will be people who don't like you. But don't let that stop you from living your life. Your peers are right. Think like that and you won't get anything done in life.

Totally unrealistic but what really pi$$ed me off was that they showed the Singh Sabha gurdwara as a background at least half a dozen times. Have no idea why they didn't show one of the mosques in the area. It was a half hearted attempt to make a drama out of a real issue. The worst was they have some paedostani woman as a detective hunting the Paedostani gang down. Can't really believe that a 'sister' wo

If you're going to continue, 2 things - kill the animal all the way in one go, it's pretty bad if you leave it spasming. Just get a shovel and take its head off, or if you have branch trimmers (they look like giant scissors) you can use those. Yeah it sounds really bad but they get the job done, and they are much more preferable then slamming a pot on the mouse's head many times. 2nd thing is don't try to save the animal from the cat. That just makes it worse, and it's not fo
