  2. Anyway, I am eager now for @MisterrSingh to provide examples of UK Sikh families living in complete isolation who showed the world how tough they are and gave him an opportunity to beat his chest.

  4. The fact that you think Americans go around driving through different states regularly again shows your ignorance. It is much easier to travel from the UK to various European destinations than it is to travel between American cities that are far apart. Also, I know what you meant by "Europeans" through your British lenses, but saying "most Europeans" don't easily move around from one separate nation to the next is actually kind of funny considering how regularly continental Europeans do just that. You are much more likely to see British Sikhs on holiday in various European capitals where

  7. Aside from the fact that the Republicans are just the other side of the rigged game, this is evidence of how to destroy a powerful man in this day and age when murder isn't on the cards: destroy his reputation. Accusations of rape, sexual misdemeanours, etc, are the go-to method.

  8. Well exposed on "Sham" Sister. I am not sure he is a far left commie but he is a rabid Pakistani puppet and for him to describe Singhs on Twitter as Incels but support pedophiles like Lord Nazir Ahmad along with the other Pakistani puppet Pannun is a joke. 1. Paji I just wanted to put forward that the "defund the police" mantra isn't what it seems to be and a better comparable might be if Sikhs in the 1990's were wanting the state to "defund Punjab Police". The word "defund" is toxic is should be replaced with "what alternative uses of the overall prison and police budget can yiel

  9. It's all a question of scale I guess. Most Europeans don't think like Americans in the way you're conveying hopping from one separate nation to the next like it's a road trip where people drive through states. Stuff like language, culture / local customs, etc., are all rather concrete and definite over here. I don't think you have to learn a completely new language when you get to Milwaukee in order to converse with the locals. Borders are a thing although I guess you Commie ret4rds are determined to eliminate them, lol.

  10. I'm not sure it's an accurate idea, lol. I was a bit hyper. I think we notice the sell outs more keenly because when they turn coat, it seems to be really quite horrible to see one of your own almost relishing the betrayal. I don't think we're any more or less traitorous than other groups.

  11. By the way, I'm sorry I didn't recognize all of the UK Sikhs who live in "heavily mixed non-Sikh areas." It must be incredibly isolating not living in Southall, but instead living a whopping 5 miles away from it!

  12. The obvious reason why American Sikhs are unable to respond as a community to various things is staring you right in the face: no population density, nothing resembling a "community," and in turn no power or influence. But rather than accept the obvious answer, you want to take this opportunity to engage in some pointless chest-beating. Is there something in the water there that makes you people (who come from the same culture and same pinds) different? Let me ask you something about UK Sikhs. Why can't you do anything about the sorry state of Sikhs in France? No, don't tell m

  14. in this fun, innocent way it's kind of ok. they are also preserving some folk stories and sayings in their boliyaan. It's only when people start obsessing over bhangra competitions and also these bhangra songs and videos which objectify women and use lyrics which dumb down our community, that's when things are going bad and we need to concentrate more on our sikhi, learning bani and history, and even preserving raag music and raag keertan etc.

  15. It's hard to tell, but what I think is highly likely is that if we have a stronger 'Panjabi cultural identity' than a Sikh one, we'll be forever complaining about the other communities that put their faith first over their culture and how they are more cohesive than us, and achieve more. I recognise we can't be all sombre and serious all the time as a quom, and that fun is essential in life, but I guess it's the context and arrangements for this that make a difference. We know we've actually helped put some of our own in the hands of predators in the past through this. A balance has to b

  16. A concerted consistent effort to raise a generation that has a strong Sikh identity and fidelity would be logically central. The current fractious political, regional, caste based norm that most are raised in does not help one bit in this. We cannot rely on any institutes to do this, it has to be a ground level, personal movement. But bypassing and subverting the established norms wont be easy and will take time (a generation or two), people have to aim for that. The other thing that I am truly baffled at, are the attitudes of the authorities here towards Sikhs - a lot of the suspicion an

  17. Fair play, this is accurate as evidenced recently in the UK where Muslims seem to be flooding into law enforcement and related sectors, and that's never going to be a good thing for Sikhs no matter what the sell-outs in our community will claim. If they want to recruit, then fair enough, but we all know that when Sikhs gain these positions, in times of conflict they tend to defer to the authority paying their bills instead of siding with their own kind. That is a big problem, and I'm not sure there's a solution to it.

  27. Those wooden things are called ‘Persian Clubs’ which are used to strengthen hand grip and shoulders. Dangal Wrestlers (Pehlwans) still use them as part of their daily training. Bodyweight momentum squats and ‘Hindu pushups‘ as they are known are the core exercises used to develop strength. Also pushing and pulling trees is also an old exercise which was used to develop strength. The key to getting strong was always to do massive quantities of repetitions with these exercises, have daily massages and consume lots of nuts, milk and gheeoh!

  33. worst thing is they collect 2 years worth ahead of time and guess what the electionis coming next year so the BJP will probably pocket it and we are not talking small amounts SGPC has given over 230 crode rupee think how much sewa could be done with that even if it was sunk into co-ops to help the needy ... The other thing is GST is not exempt on sugar, butter, milk, ghee, any form of veg oils and the transport of same and degh takes so much sugar and butter/ghee it is a direct tax on Degh. It shows justs how low these people are... and Harsimarat Badal is proud to announce the facts of this

  34. When the soul leaves the body nothing remains except soil in the lifeless body. I have been to funerals and noticed that the soul has left the body and the body looks like it is in Samadhi state. Mahapurakh Rare Wale used to say that seeing dead persons makes you go in bairagi state. You feel aware of death and that it’s coming to get you.

  35. Why does this shock you? Many monay think its amusing to ridicule the Khalsa saroop all the time, referring to Singhs pejoratively as "babbay" or "gianis". If people like that actually knew any shabads, they would probably denigrate shabads too. Now we have someone like jusreign, who used to be a Singh (and who probably, I'm guessing, used to make more of an effort to behave like a proper Sikh than he does these days) that's so desperate to win approval from the secular majority that he has resorted to such disgusting antics. It's sad.

  36. As far as i'm aware you can buy them online but i'd recommend finding a local store (there's plenty of them about) and going in and chatting to them, they aren't specifically prohibited in the UK but the more powerful ones will come under the firearms act and could get you into trouble if they're the ones you want, like i said, find a local store and speak to them. I wouldn't even think about bringing one back from India or anywhere else unless you like orange jumpsuits and want to spend the next few years at her majesties pleasure. What you hunting anyway, the local giani's...

  37. I'll have to give it further thought, but regarding your question I'd say it's something unique to us in our makeup that is evident in notable moments in our history as a community, when certain of our own have disgraced and betrayed their fellow Sikhs for some form of gain (on a scale of varying magnitude). Also, our sense of fairness and desire to be viewed as objective is taken to extremes by some of our people who lack the wisdom and insight to appreciate how we also have a duty to elevate our profile in a positive way that doesn't undermine our standing amongst other groups who are h

  39. I agree that his tying of it seems loose. Also, just a question: Is is guy (or everybody else, too) simply assuming that "this is the style worn by Guru Hargobind ji" because of a painting? Aren't the paintings painted that way because kings were just represented in that style? Persian style? Does anyone have any other evidence (than the painting) that was actually the style of turban worn by Guru Sahib?

  40. This, while unfortunate, is a predictable consequence of Angela Merkel's idiotic invitation to a million mostly fake refugees to come to Europe per year. If that wasn't enough, Europe is welcoming former ISIS jihadis back with open arms, and giving them welfare benefits! Sweden is giving them free housing and benefits. In such an environment, it would be surprising if all Europeans were not getting angry at Muslims. Of course (unfortunately) a lot of people mistake us for Muslims, so we're getting the brunt of their anger. By the way, I would ask you consider what we would
