    Waheguru I think eveyone has already visited this website Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s visit to Rome, Italy in the year 1520. The Vatican FINALLY confirms the visit of Il Prima Guru Dei Sikhs, the first Guru of the Sikhs.

Arch-Bishop Dom Jose Ronaldo of Pope Benedict-XII, speaks about Satguru Nanak Sahib visit to Rome with a musician, in 1518 AD, and Satguru stayed in Mussoleum-F of Old St.Peter’s Basillica. Satguru advocated to Leo-X, (the Pope) “Liberty of Slavery”. He told the Pope that nobody has the right to enslave others. Almighty Satguru told the worthy Pope that every human being has the same blood in his or her veins. Satguru discussed in detail the “Missionario Humantario (Universal Human Mission).

    Exactly, the man eats McDonalds for God's sake. No way he's physically fit enough to be any sort of master, despite the fact his martial art is a posh up of stuff he made up as he went along. The AKali Nihang Singh whose picture is floating around the net from the 1960s taught several students, two who are still alive who have in turn taught thousands shastar vidiya. How can he have the audacity to claim to be the last master when he made it up along the way? Perhaps he didn't learn properly and was lazy and felt like he needed to adopt various styles from other martial arts to legitimize himself? Akali Phoola Singh Ji Nihang was old, but his body was so physically fit he seemed very young and could take anyone young and old. Many people respected him and never dared to cross him, even in groups. A true Sant SIpahi akali doesn't need to do weird pooja dances to be the last warrior, you just have to be a Sikh of the Guru a true Khalsa.

    The Government of India have caused this tablet to be erected to the memory of the twenty one non-commissioned officers and men of the 36 Sikh Regiment of the Bengal Infantry whose names are engraved below as a perpetual record of the heroism shown by these gallant soldiers who died at their posts in the defence of the fort of Saragarhi, on the 12 September 1897, fighting against overwhelming numbers, thus proving their loyalty and devotion to their sovereign, the Queen Empress of India, and gloriously maintaining the reputation of the Sikhs for unflinching courage on the field of battle. Havildar Ishar Singh (regimental number 165) Naik Lal Singh (332) Lance Naik Chanda Singh (546) Sepoy Sundar Singh (1321) Sepoy Ram Singh (287) Sepoy Uttar Singh (492) Sepoy Sahib Singh (182) Sepoy Hira Singh (359) Sepoy Daya Singh (687) Sepoy Jivan Singh (760) Sepoy Bhola Singh (791) Sepoy Narayan Singh (834) Sepoy Gurmukh Singh (814) Sepoy Jivan Singh (871) Sepoy Gurmukh Singh (1733) Sepoy Ram Singh (163) Sepoy Bhagwan Singh (1257) Sepoy Bhagwan Singh (1265) Sepoy Buta Singh (1556) Sepoy Jivan Singh (1651) Sepoy Nand Singh (1221) September 12, 1897, twenty-one soldiers of the 36th Sikh Regiment, including their commander, Havildar Ishar Singh, faced impossible odds. Over ten thousand Pathans and Afghan tribesmen advanced on their signaling post of Saragarhi, located in the North-West Frontier province of undivided British India. For the next seven hours, the Sikhs fought to the last man, protecting the Indian soil of the British Empire with unflinching courage and determination. Each was posthumously awarded the Indian Order of Merit, the highest gallantry award an Indian soldier could receive from the British crown. Never in the history, or since the battle of Saragarhi, has an entire contingent of troops received the highest gallantry honor for a single action. The Pashtuns later admitted that they had lost about 180 killed and many more wounded during the engagement against the 21 Sikh soldiers, but some 600 bodies are said to have been seen around the ruined post when the relief party arrived. The total casualties in the entire campaign, including the Battle of Saragarhi, numbered at around 4,800. According to the Indian Express, Saragarhi is "one of the eight collective stories on bravery published by UNESCO for children. The battle has become iconic of eastern military civilization, British empire military history and Sikh history. The modern Sikh Regiment continues to celebrate the day of the Battle of Saragarhi each 12 September as the Regimental Battle Honours Day.

    Exposed: Beadbi of 22 Saroops of Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee Maharaj stored in warehouse in London On Tuesday 3rd September 2013 members of the Saadsangat received a telephone call that 22 Saroops of Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee were being stored in a commercial warehouse (trading as a company called Trimex UK Ltd) in Feltham, West London. After further investigation by local Sangat members it came to light that the people who collected and sent 400 Saroops of Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji to India in 2007,(claiming that all of those Saroops were Biird – too old to be read)were once again gathering Saroops and storing them at this warehouse. In turn it was discovered that Saroops were being actively collated from around the UK so that once a few hundred had been collected they would be shipped off to India to a place known as Mai Bhago Centre in Dehradun, India. Once again the Saroops were all being deemed as Biird i.e. too old to be read, so they should be sent for Agan Beth Seva (cremation). The owners of the warehouse and various committee members of the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib in southall were actively responsible for the original 400 Saroops being sent to India in 2007. After the 400 Saroops were shipped to India in 2007, a consortium of Panthic elders (ranging from Gurdwara Sahib Committee leaders and representatives of various Jathabandia)held a series of meetings with the people responsible and sternly reprimanded them. It was agreed that such major actions regarding so many Saroops of Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee leaving the UK could never be taken by a few individuals but first must be addressed by the whole of the Sikh Community in the UK. Especially at a time when hundreds of Saroops are being shipped into the UK once again by private individuals who claim that there is a very big shortage of Saroops in the UK. Unfortunately even on this occasion the owners of the aforementioned warehouse and various committee members of Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib are at the forefront of these 22 (perhaps more) Saroops being collected and stored. At around 6.30pm the majority of the Sangat accompanied by a full reporting team of the Sikh Channel, started arriving at the Warehouse. The son of the owner advised the Sangat that the Saroops were longer here and that they were taken to Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib. 3 members of the Sangat that arrived around 6.15pm stated that they had seen a van and a car pulling away quite speedly with about 4 people inside with a Chor Sahib, just as they arrived at the warehouse. Members of the Sangat then requested that the Sikh Channel team should be allowed access to the room where the Saroops were originally kept. However, the owners son flatly refused all requests, citing that we had to wait for his father to arrive from Southall ( a journey of approx 15mins). The Sangat patiently waited for 45mins but there was still no sign of his father, the Sangat then demanded that the Sikh Channel team be given access. After much deliberation this was then given. The Sikh Channel Team were shown to a double sized room which contained a Manji Sahib all ready for Maharaj and a cot sized bunk bed, however there were no Saroops present. Due to the fact that the cot sized bunk beds would have been extremely too small for 22 Saroops and also the question as to why the Saroops were in the Warehouse, it was decided that the Sangat should wait there for the owner to arrive and address the Sangats concerns. Whilst the Sangat were peacefully waiting the owners son called the police to remove the Sangat, citing that the warehouse was private property. The Sangat at this time were feeling very oppressed as the police were being very uncooperative, thankfully elders amongst the Sangat liased with the police and got the son to have a direct conversation with the Sangat by telephone. In this call the owner invited the Sangat to come to Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib saying that all 22 Saroops were now there and himself and the Committee would happily answer all the Sangats questions. Upon arriving at Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib it seemed that there were very few people there(Maharajs Sukhasan had happened) and when asked nobody seemed to know anything regarding the 22 Saroops. Members of the Sangat accompanied by the Sikh Channel Team then proceeded to have Darshan of Guru Jees Sachkhand hoping the 22 Saroops would be there, unfortunately this was not so. The owner was not picking up his calls, and there was nobody present at the Gurdwara Sahib who knew about the Saroops. The Sangat at this point were feeling very agitated. Thankfully one Singh managed to get the telephone number of the Pardhan Sahib of the Gurdwara, Harpal Singh. One of the elders in the Sangat then proceeded to call him. In that conversation Harpal Singh informed the Sangat exactly where the Saroops were in the Gurdwara Sahib (there was a very small room above the Sachkhand). He was then questioned about the whole scenario involving not only these 22 Saroops but also the previous times where Saroops were stored in the same warehouse and then sent to india involving the same Gurdwara Sahib. He very openly and honestly gave the whole story how Sevadaar collect Biird (old) Saroops in there hundreds from around the country ( store them in the warehouse and the Gurdwara Sahib)and then send them to India for Saskar (creamation). He went on to say that Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib were currently in the process of building a Anghita Sahib here in Southall, so that they could do the Saskar Seva (cremation) here. He apologised that as he was away, he could not meet the Sangat but reassured them that members of the Commitee would meet the Sangat the next morning. As members of the Sangat had Darshan of the small room where the 22 Saroops were, it was a very big shock to see how the Saroops were kept in a room so small that it would be impossible for one person to sleep in. The passageway leading to the room was severely packed, the door was tightly shut and there was no fans, It felt very hot and stuffy due to the lack of air. The Sangats first reaction was that Maharaj could not stay here, however as it was now 10.30pm, it was decided that the door should be kept open and fans be bought in to make the conditions slightly better at least until Amritvela the next day. 5 Singhs from the Sangat volunteered to stay with Maharaj throughout the night as all other members of the Sangat were instructed to go home. It was agreed that although the conditions in which the 22 Saroops were being kept were very wrong the first thing to do was the Darshan of each Saroop at Amritvela to see how Biird (old) they really were. At approx 4.15am the next day ( Wednesday 4th)over 20 members of the Sangat (including the vice president of Guru Nanak Darbar - Dr T S Wadhwa and several other members of the commitee) were blessed with the Pavitar Darshan of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee Maharaj. The most amazing thing is that Guru Jees Saroop were perfect, in every way. It was never possible to even think this Saroop could ever be considered as Biird (old). Dr Wadhwa ( the vice pres) was present and totally agreed that this Saroop was perfect. They even questioned the Granthi Singhs as to who had Darshan of this Saroop and deemed the Saroop to be Biird (old), to which there were only confusing looks as answers. This Seva then continued for all the other Saroops, each and everyone of them were far from being considered Biird (old) and only fit for Saskar (cremation). A few of the Saroops were in need of seva of the Angs, something that is currently performed by Singhs in Havelock Rd Gurdwara Sahib. It was then decided by the sangat and amicably agreed (with Guru Nanak Darbar committee) that it would be best that the saroops should be placed in the Sachkhand at Havelock Rd Gurdwara where there would be enough space for the Seva to take place. Two Saroops were also taken to Guru Amar Dass Gurdwara Sahib as they were needed for daily Prakash and as they were in such good condition this would be possible. The Sangat would like to thank all Gurdwara Sahibs and Media channels that helped with the Seva, but most of all Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee Maharaj for once again enlightening the world with Pavitar Prakash.

    After seeing this documentary and watching more of this man's lectures, I've wondered why our community is not engaged in this seva. Why do non-Sikhs seem to be working for humanity more than Sikhs? Zeitgeist Moving Forward (2+ hours): The first 5 minutes show the similarity to Sikhi. The Venus Project (1.5 hour lecture): Jacque Fresco on allowing people to smoke (1 minuts): Please comment. It seems we need to support these worldwide projects before it's too late.

    Seen plenty of these so called dangerous martial arts "masters" like Niddar and his chelle making tall claims. But when facing a real martial artist they get beaten. Look at this video of a similar master of a dangerous martial arts vs an ordinary mma practitioner.

    Fateh Sangat jee I would just like to give everyone an update of the situation regarding Maharajs beadbhi in London. Taranpreet Singh contacted me last night and informed me that a meeting took place on Tuesday evening between members of the Sangat and quite a large number of prominent members from the Afghan Comm. This was also attended by the main reps in the UK of an organisation called Khalsa Diwan (Originally formed in 1980 in Afghanistan). The mtg was arranged at the result of countless phone calls and emails that had been recieved by the Sangat from members of the Afghan Comm across the UK hightlighting their concerns as to how Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib and the Afghan Comm as a whole were being portrayed to the wider sangat. The purpose of the mtg from the Sangat side was to explain in full detail (to produce all relevant proofs) exactly what had been uncovered and raised to the Sangat worldwide. Also to answer any questions raised by anyone openly without fear. With Maharajs beant kirpa the result of the mtg was that once all details and proofs were shared openly every single person (there were both men and women present) agreed wholeheardly that a gross beadbi of Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib had taken place. With Gods Grace sangat from the Afghan Comm gave reassurance to the wider sangat that the real culprits would be singled out and sternly reprimanded by the members of their own comm. The sangat were informed that a statement would be issued asap to the worldwide sangat reiterating the points and resolved in the mtg. At a time when certain members of OUR own media had gone a little too quiet Guru jee reminds us that the real power is in the Saadsangat. Taranpreet Singh was travelling last night im sure he will update us on any new developments. Any mistakes in writing pls accept my apologies.

    NRI Oberois trust may soon get management of Nepal Gurdwaras [Vishal Joshi, Hindustan Times | 16 Sep 2013 11:00 AM IST | Karnal, India] Surinder Pal Singh Oberoi (middle) with the men he helped free After fighting a long legal battle on a foreign soil, Dubai-based Punjabi entrepreneur SP Singh Oberois charitable trust may get the management of three lesser-known gurdwaras in Nepal by the end of September. These shrines are associated with first Sikh master Guru Nanak Dev and Oberoi plans scientific preservation of the shrines while maintain maryada (Sikh code of religious conduct). Better known as a person who had helped save lives of 17 Indian youth sentenced to death in Dubai, Oberoi told Hindustan Times on Monday that he had managed to access the original revenue documents that helped him to stake the gurdwaras claim on land. He is elated that the Nepalese apex court accepted the 500-year-old royal donation papers and the Nepal government has agreed in principle to allow the restoration work of the shrine to the trust, a registered body in Nepal, and other local people. The land of Guru Nanak Math is still in the name of Guru Nanak Dev. The supreme court of Nepal is expected to hand over the control of the land and shrines to Sarbat Da Bhala Charitable Trust in the next few days, said Oberoi, who was in Karnal to launch a rehabilitation programme of street children by National Integrated Forum of Artists and Activists (NIFAA). Oberoi has plans to set up a Sikh museum and an orphanage at Thapathali. In 1516, the then Nepal emperor Raja Jai Jagat Malla of Malla dynasty had donated 1,600 acres of land for religious services to Guru Nanak Dev. As there was no one to take care of the Guru Nanak Math, the land was encroached upon by various people. Now only 34 acres of land is in possession of the math. With the help of local population and officials, our team got access to the original papers duly signed by the king Malla under his official seal. To make the offering a non-disputed, Malla had taken his son as a witness, he said. Guru Nanaks Nepal udasi Oberoi said that as per the history, Sikh's first master Guru Nanak Dev had visited Kathmandu in 1516 AD during his 3rd udasi (journey). The Guru had spent about one-and-half months there. During his stay he had spent first night on the banks of Bishnumati river. Sikh museum After spotting a rabab believed to be belonging to Bhai Mardana, a close disciple of Guru Nanak Dev, and an ancient 1,554-page manuscript of Guru Granth Sahib at Guru Nanak Math, SP Singh Oberoi has plans to construct a Sikh museum at Thapathali. He said that more such belongings of the Guru would be searched and put on display after scientific preservation. An orphanage is also planned where 100 children would be adopted and given free education by the trust.

    It double standards all the way. First the Hindus under the BJP/RSS leadership gather in huge numbers and openly say they will kill Muslims then go out and do the usual of Killing not just young men , but elderly and children (I am not siding with Muslims, but the same mobs did the same to Sikhs and will do again). The BJP/RSS are not opposed by the police who just as with Sikhs massacre side with the Hindus. Double standards again that Manmohan Singh sends in the army and then says he will punish the guilty, when he does nothing for Sikhs. The conclusion is Hindu mobs will never be stopped by the largely Hindu police , Congress will help victims if they can blame the BJP. For Sikhs not only will the Hindu police fire on them but Sikh police as well and the Badal Akalis, Congress and BJP will not help get them justice or punish the guilty.

    That's the funniest things I've seen for ages! I'm surprised that social services haven't seen the video and taken action to take his kid into care looking at how he's swinging the two kirpans around him. His son seems to be more questioning of the sanatan warrior than any of his muppet students most of whom appear to suffer from mental health issues. This video confirms what I have always thought of Niddars gang, that they are a cult. In a cult, the leader can do and say any amount of BS and the cult followers will try and find the hidden teaching in the BS! If Niddar had taken his gang to Macs on the first day of starting his cult, most if not all would have seen the hypocrisy of someone claiming to be a Nihang eating meat from Macs which everyone knows is Halal. But the constant BS from Niddar over the years has turned the brains of his followers into shyt and they cannot see his hypocrisy.

    8 Year-Old Yemeni Child Bride Dies of Internal Injuries An 8 year-old Yemeni child bride, a mere girl, recently died on her wedding night from internal hemorrhaging. She was married to a man five times her age. As disgusting as the tradition of marrying off children to much older men is, it is common practice in Yemen. More than a quarter of the female population are married before the age of 15. In 2010, a 12 year-old girl passed away after struggling for three days in labor, attempting to give birth to a baby. Countless other children have been subjected to similar atrocities. At only 8 years-old, one child bride in Yemen sustained internal injuries so severe, she died. Marrying young daughters to much older men is a common practice in Yemen. More than a quarter or Yemen’s female population marry before the age of 15. These atrocities against young girls have outraged groups all over the world who are working to stop this barbaric tradition. Groups all over the world are working to snuff out this archaic and disgusting practice, but its proving difficult. The impoverished country is gripped by the practice of selling off children to be married; poor families find themselves unable to say no to “bride-prices” that can be hundreds of dollars for their daughters. More people need to know this is happening.

    The only Sikhs who would have converted to Islam are those who were left behind in Pakistan after partition. Also you have dumb girls here in the uk who also leave due to love jihad. In India the only people leave Sikhi are the poor ones who are tricked by missionaries. Then you have people like Nicki Haley who left it to further her political career.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh A hundred years ago, on September 12th, 1897, 21 Sikh Soldiers of the 36th Sikh Regiment were beseiged by ten thousand Afreedi Pathans at Saragarhi near Fort Lockhart, District Kohat of North West Frontier Province(now in Pakistan). The fierce battle known by the natives as 'Teera Battle' or Saragarhi Battle was fought on September 12th 1897, under the command of Havildar Isher Singh who caused maximum casualties of the invaders. According to the accounts of the Afreedi Pathans, more than 200 pathans were killed in this battle and about 1000 seriously injured. Near the end of the battle, only Havildar Isher Singh was left alone with twenty bodies of his brave fellow fighters, gursikh soldiers lying all around him. Unfrustated by the attack of the huge enemy, the lone soldier fought the battle for hours showing exemplary courage unparalled in the history of wars. All these twenty one Sikh Soldiers who laid down their lives heroically were awarded the highest gallantry award - the 'INDIAN ORDER OF MERIT' (IOM), by the British Government. Their each family was given Rs. 500 and a big chunk of land as an award. The British Government constructed three Gurudwaras at Ferozpore, Amritsar and Saragarhi, as a permanent memorial to these brave souls. Every year a big three day carnival is organized at Ferozpore and tributes are paid to these great Sikh heroes. When the news of that peerless sacrifice reached England, all the Members of the British Parliament, in their special session paid glowing tributes to the most daring Sikh Soldiers and a two minute silence was observed in their sweet memory. The Members of the House while eulogising the remarkable acts of bravery said: "The English as well as Indian subjects are proud of 36th Sikh Regiment and it is no exaggeration to record that the armed forces which possess valiant Sikhs cannot face defeat in a war." Twenty One Gallantry Awards were given on that day to the '21 Sikh Soldiers', which were the highest in strength awarded for any single day.The British were so overwhelmed with the dauntless spirit of the Sikhs, that they made it mandatory for all the school going students to study the history of the Saragarhi Battle. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Related to this sakhi: The other day me and gabby(a friend of mine) met a 86 year old man. When we started to talk to him, the first thing he did was point at me and say, 'the bravest soldier in the world...' He then went on to tell us about world war 2 and showed us a picture which he kept in his wallet, for the last 60 years of a sikh soldier, who he said had 'saved his life'.

    You're a deep thinker. Taran jee you have perfectly described every Punjabi family out there. Especially the part of apne helping out their relatives back home in India all their lives only to get dissed afterwards. But the worst relatives are the ones trying to grab your Jameen when you are in the west working 24/7. Almost every Punjabi family you talk to in the west has a bitter story of being betrayed by their relatives in India. One should never be too overly generous to their relatives back home no matter how good they seem at first.

    This is my impression of our Shaheeds speaking to those who leave Sikhi as a result of inappropriate pre-marital relationships. I have written this in a very painful state of mind reading news of Sikh girls (and boys) destroying their lives, especially after reading all those grooming news articles about what has been happening in UK. Gurmukh pyaareyo, we now speak to you This one small thing we want to get through Just so you woke up in freedom at dawn We smiled while we were brutally sawn Just so you had joys that were high priced We didn't care if our scalp was sliced Just so you relished celebrations that were grand We fought with our severed heads on our hands Just so you could thrive on this planet, although scattered We mounted those wheels to get ourselves shattered We went through that agony, we went through that pain Just so you wouldn't face them again We got ourselves boiled, bruised and burnt But can you tell us what have you learnt? You decide to quit Sikhi in the blink of an eye You shame our blood before every passerby The pleasures of the flesh have made you blind What species are you? Oh what is your kind? We held to our faith inspite of being blown We roared the Jakaare as bombs were thrown In came the enemy, and their huge tanks rode In our dying moments we defended Guru's abode Bullets hit us bad and our skin was torn Delighted we died, coz we don't know how to mourn Our foes bowed their heads seeing our determination We faced them head on, not fearing extermination But today you kids have brought us shame Please tell us this much, who do we blame? You first ruin your bodies, and then you soil your souls Your brains have become rotten, and mind is full of holes Are you really those, for whom we smiled at death? Smiled as we were losing our very last breath? Are you really those who would make us proud? Or forget about us as a passing rain cloud? For you we saw our babies getting ripped apart We didn't act clever, cunning or smart For you we happily had our skin peeled But your choices today have your fate sealed If you still have honor in the least bit Then listen to this message if you think you are fit Sikhi is what made us into all that you read We were not mere sheep, we were a lion's breed You proudly hang our images instead What use are they? To bang your head? You shame our blood, you shame our names! Your false pride will soon go up in flames! Today we are hurt, today we are ashamed This generation is spiritually maimed Gurmukh pyaareyo, we now speak to you This one small thing we want to get through You've fallen in our eyes, you've fallen from grace We wait for you to come and show us that face Mehtab Singh September 3, 2013
