  1. When we slander someone, we are not defining them; we are defining 'OURSELVES'... Waheguru....

  2. West London Singh, You say that as far as khatri's are concerned, "Sikhism is for men only". In the same token, I can say in jatts, sikhism is for no one! The men are largely clean-shaven, the women won't marry a guy with a turban (unless she is amritdhari) - its epidemic in that community. Of course, it wasn't always like that with jatts, in the past they have contributed alot in shaheedi terms, therefore, this makes it even more ironic. I remember a Panth Time discussion show last year. to put things into context, they were discussing 'dastaar day'. A member of the ramgharia community stoo

  4. It seems he might have been a Punjabi Hindu, Khatri by caste. A brave general who did a lot of service for the Sikh kingdom and deserves to be remembered. Back then there was no conflict between Punjabi Hindus and Sikhs. Differences only arose when that devil Dayanand Sarasvati came to Punjab and began to poison the hearts and minds of the Punjabi Hindus against the Sikhs by creating his Arya Samaj movement. During the Sikh revival movement i.e. Singh Sabha, all Punjabi hindus would have become Sikhs had the Arya Samaj not been in Punjab.

  6. These Singhs shold have outright refused to play without their dastaars or patkay..The fact that they tried to tie their hair back and play just to satisfy discriminatory FIBA rules shows a character weakness on their behalf.

  7. Understand & recite this shabad ਕਾਨੜਾ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥ Kaanraa, Fifth Mehl: ਬਿਸਰਿ ਗਈ ਸਭ ਤਾਤਿ ਪਰਾਈ ॥ I have totally forgotten my jealousy of others, ਜਬ ਤੇ ਸਾਧਸੰਗਤਿ ਮੋਹਿ ਪਾਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ since I found the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy. ||1||Pause|| ਨਾ ਕੋ ਬੈਰੀ ਨਹੀ ਬਿਗਾਨਾ ਸਗਲ ਸੰਗਿ ਹਮ ਕਉ ਬਨਿ ਆਈ ॥੧॥ No one is my enemy, and no one is a stranger. I get along with everyone. ||1|| ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀਨੋ ਸੋ ਭਲ ਮਾਨਿਓ ਏਹ ਸੁਮਤਿ ਸਾਧੂ ਤੇ ਪਾਈ ॥੨॥ Whatever God does, I accept that as good. This is the sublime wisdom I have obtained from the Holy. ||2|| ਸਭ ਮਹਿ ਰਵਿ ਰਹਿਆ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਏਕੈ ਪੇਖਿ ਪੇਖਿ ਨਾਨਕ ਬਿਗਸਾਈ ॥੩॥੮॥ T

  8. There must me somebody who has links to these Singhs. It's usually pretty easy to get in touch, don't know if anyone's making the effort though. This needs a panthic response, it shouldn't be ignored.

  9. We will probably never find out so my proposition is this ...if they are going hard to tarnish Khalsa's name , we go harder in showing not just India but the world what Khalsa is doing for the good every last one of us must pick up on this project ... do good to others , show what is Sikhi in action, make people love us for our humanity, if you do this those who spread false propaganda will be ignored as the audience will know from their own experiences we are not like that.

  10. Not relevant I know but its actually the Rastafarians who have modelled themselves on Hindu sadhus. The long thick dreads had been totally unheardd of among African and Afro-Carribean people until the mass arrival of Hindu indentured labourers into Jamaica and other West Indian islands in the 1800's. Among them were those with the sadhu appearance, i.e with long matted unkempt hair and smoking copious amounts of ganga. The rastafarian movement adopted the sadhu style also adopted the hindi name for the drug, i.e ganga. But going back to the topic, the kid is just a kid. He's probably as amaze

  11. To start off with, we do Simran out loud. There comes a time when Simran is taking place in our body, without us having to actively engage in Simran... A SCENARIO. A person runs a virus scan on their computer, they wait until the scan is complete, and then use the rest of the computer facilities. Another person runs the virus scan in the background, and at the same time he/she uses the other functions of the computer. In this instance, the virus scan is doing it's job without the person being disrupted. When we engage in Simran, our Atma becomes positively charged, the 'corrupt files' in o

  12. NEW DELHI (July 17, 2014)—Hospital treatment of Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara, who is imprisoned at the Tihar Jail in New Delhi, has once again been delayed. He was brought to the hospital on a stretcher at 7 AM earlier today. Doctors referred him for some tests, and prescribed medicines. No formal tests were carried out, and he was asked to come back on July 30, despite the pain being severe and critical. Upon returning to the Tihar Jail, Bhai Hawara complained about the visit to the hospital being a waste of time. He asked that these recommendations could have been made at the jail itsel

  14. -Jewish vs Muslims -Christians vs Muslims -Hindus vs Muslims -Shia vs Sunni no need for us to get involved in any of these. Sikhs should just remain neutral and seize any opportunity that presents itself for the Panth's political independence. Be like the Kurds. In Iraq, they didn't get involved in the Shia vs Sunni war. Instead they took that as an opportunity to increase their territory by 40% and also reclaim their historic capital Kirkuk(full of oil) to the annoyance of the Arabs. Once we have a country of our own, then we can get involved in other people's conflict and help them.

  16. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ke Fateh At the start of part one last week, I was pleased to see an amritdhari sister was going to be part of the programme as she would bring Sikh ethics to the debate and put the bigots straight. But even though she did not feature much last week, the small clips made it clear she was part of the 'anti-immigration' group that needed convincing by the 'immigrant' group, which came as a surprise as her elders like almost all UK Sikhs would be immigrants. In this week's part I was shocked when Bhein Ji said 1. She had moved to another area because the area

  17. I would be hard pushed to remember ever reading something so racist as your rant! Unless you have a working knowladge of a the smaali community or know a lot of them as friends I dont think you can make such a sweeping comments. 'typical' and 'your average' are racist terminology because you are putting guilt on a whole community. My first hand knowladge of the few somalis I have known showed greta humour, hard working and yes very religious in some ways. But as 'british (whatever that means) as the next person. The Pakistani couple worked really long hours and came across as lovely. He was fa

Ik chuperd marke bus karna chahida see but they went on and on ...they should have seen the kids was terrified and remorseful and changed tune by explaining with piare that gulti phir nahin karna . I did happen to see it before the original poster started the thread it made my stomach turn as it was in the same flavour as some shiv sena types beating up two muslim guys for transport cattle in their truck. Khalsa are supposed to be like Guru ji not tyrants ...what's going on?

  20. Both of my parents born in rural punjab. On the other hand i was born and raised in city until we moved from india when i was 16. But before i moved away from india, i spent two years in pind. There is huge difference between city and pind folks but i would always prefer a company of pind folks anytime of the day. Their attitude and dedication is lot better than city folks. As mentioned by buddasingh, rural pind folks were most oppressed by indian govt and the reason is because they are typically the only one to stand against injustice.

  23. Why do do you not 'think' that ? Surely when people from an urban background are labelled 'rural' just because they've done something bad thats being disrespectful to rural folk ? As another poster above stated, most of Punjab's terrible ills exist predominately amongst it's urban classes. It is the urban classes that murder most of their daughters just for being female. It is the urban classes that murder most of their daughter in laws just for not bringing enough money and gifts in dowry. It is the urban Sikhs that have most dilluted Sikhism with Hinduism. It is the urban classes that

  24. But why even village or small town? don't urbanites from big urban centers like Ludhiana, Patiala, Jalandhar and Amritsar commit crimes against their daughter in laws? Next time you are in Punjab, open up the Ajit news paper and read for your self all the dowry related murders urban In-laws commit. Furthuremore, female infanticide(abortion) is more common among the educated Urbanites than the rural folks. Who is more backward now?

  25. 'Pendus' ? :wow: When urban Sikhs do something good you'll say it's because they're urban and cultured but when urban Sikhs do something bad you equate them with the rural folk. Doubt this man or his family has ever stepped foot in a 'pend'. Should I start a thread now about the backward shari lok ? What is the heritage of those with the name 'Mirgind' ?

  26. Sant Baba Gurdial Singh ji Tandewale:- "In coming 10-15 years our generation will be born handicapped and abnormal, because of what we are doing today. We want or have only one boy who has turned "amli and shraabi". On the top of that, we are killing unborn girls, who were supposed to give births to "sant / bhagat / soorme". We are worse than animals, because even they never killl their own children. Wake up sangat ji. We'll not see any normal person in 10-15 years, tusin taras jaaoge"
