  1. Muslims also do the same thing and constantly insult other people's religion but hindus dont understand that they got that oil money and india is a poor country with a large population living in other countries and therefore has no power to do things like these to Christians and muslims unlike israel.

  2. I wonder if it relates to music with lyrics. What if it is music with no lyrics with only instruments. Music does have a way of impacting mood and energy. I wonder if it has to do with the frequencies that the vibrations give off?

  3. Some positive winds of change. Some highlights: Call made for Sikhs to start up firing ranges and get acquisition and training in firearms. Pinds need to halt the contruction of churches and mosques Parchariks and panthic sampardais need to leave their comfort zones and restart parchar in pinds in the face of aggressive christian campaigns jawarhar lal nehru was blamed for betrayal and denial of our raaj Sikhs have a right to seek raaj And some other points were made. Jathedaar also pointed out that the 'caging in' of sangat this year by heavy deployment of se

  4. There is bound to be plenty of chaos in the near future of India. I don't think the majority of our kaum is going to get to a more matured civilizational point anytime soon. We will have to work with what little we can muster up. It's starting to hit the fan over there I'm sensing. Panic is brewing for what is to come.

  5. Good call but there needs to be a very clear dharmic / religious sentiment that underpins it otherwise you'll get hyper Sikhs with guns resorting to bullets to sort out domestic issues instead of looking beyond their personal, petty conflicts, which is the culture that the likes of Moosewala are perpetuating. With a cognitively limited group such as ours, leaving things to interpretation is not sensible. I'm surprised this was even identified as a problem, especially mosques. It's the first step.

  7. It's not just about development. Our circumstances are really really bad . No country and being attacked everywhere. I mean just look at our history from 1500 onwards just fighting fighting fighting for our life. The small time of peace we had we were able to establish a well functioning kingdom with education way better than Britain of the time but then again we lost it. We also had Islamic invasions for like 1000 years. If a group is constantly involved in struggling for their survival I dont think it is easy to develop. Do you fight for your land your rights your future generation or do you

  8. Hate to bring this up but it seems we are living a world where the white skin is placed on a pedestal. It likes we have reached a point where these folks are oblivious to whats around them. They are so use to their ways that any little disturbance can bring out the worst from them. Look at Saddam or Gadaffi. Saddam was a bit stupid for taking on powerhouse like the US but Gadaffi had a real point. He was much wiser and his intentions were not all bad. Infact his goal to was unite the middle easte and East Africa under one currency but eventually was labeled as the bad guy was taken down.

  10. oya jatta, go back to pakastan and take your bodda with you! =D Is there a racism problem for sikhs and in schools? I was surprised with one of those freshie viral youtube channels where the family lives in Australia, and father wears pagh and the son has a haircut and has a warrior name like Tegh Singh. So is there a big racism problem like the uk sikh immigrants used to face decades back, from goray and schoolkids? alot of weddings I go to seems like some kind of kenya sikh is on the dholi team, can tell from the pagh. Also there are tarkhan background producers in the uk. I

  11. I was ill for the past few weeks, with some flu or cold (checked for covid but not positive). For some reason, some illnesses make it easier for me to wake up, others make it hard. Actually some days this illness made me wake up early and other days it made me sleep very long!!! Also, I have always found it easier to wake up early when in Punjab/India. I don't know why I find it more difficult in the uk?!

  17. The reason for this is because they have come up with most modern inventions and technology. None of the countries where they are a majority can be classified as third world. Finally non whites are obsessed with moving to White majority countries. Respect has to be earned.

  20. It is ਇੱਕ ਓਅੰਕਾਰ. There is no argument about this. The author of this article is spouting a baseless theory which is frankly nonsense, alongside others who have their own baseless views about the ucharan of ੴ. ਓਅੰਕਾਰ is the primal sound. Here is the first few lines of the ਓਅੰਕਾਰ baani with arths from Prof. Sahib Singh. ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥ ਅਕਾਲ ਪੁਰਖ ਇੱਕ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਦੀ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਨਾਲ ਮਿਲਦਾ ਹੈ। ਰਾਮਕਲੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ਦਖਣੀ ਓਅੰਕਾਰੁ ॥ ਰਾਗ ਰਾਮਕਲੀ ਦਖਣੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕਦੇਵ ਜੀ ਦੀ ਬਾਣੀ 'ਓਅੰਕਾਰੁ'। ਓਅੰਕਾਰਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਉਤਪਤਿ ॥ (ਹੇ ਪਾਂਡੇ! ਤੁਸੀ ਮੰਦਰ ਵਿਚ ਅਸਥਾਪਨ ਕੀਤੀ ਹੋਈ ਇਸ ਮੂਰਤੀ ਨੂੰ 'ਓਅੰਕਾਰ' ਮਿਥ ਰਹੇ ਹੋ, ਤੇ ਆਖਦੇ ਹ

  23. I think it has to do with city life and media and immigration. We used to live in villages where you knew everyone since childhood. And could be disciplined by any elder (takes a village to raise kids etc) All the oldies say that boys and girls used to play together till seventeen eighteen, no bad thoughts anywhere. But moving to cities and the media have changed the dynamic on how to relate to ppl and no elders to pass on dharmic values. And most indian cities have immigrants from all over. And i think the rurals have the wrong image of city women and are probably frustrated t

  24. If you look at DG from a wider perspective, you might see it differently. You have to avoid literalism. If Guru ji were of this ancestry (that's if you take the narrative in literal terms), it just underscores their lifelong commitment and message - so if someone purportedly from this (in Indic terms) 'great lineage' could take amrit and make themselves accountable to the sangat - it sort of knocks the bottom out of anyone else clinging onto their caste baggage claiming some sort of superiority. Plus it does serve to instruct us, because as humans it acknowledges familial past, bu

  25. It was to get the same rights as jewish people. Judaism is a religion but their ppl are recognized as an ethnicity I never agreed with this but some sikhs (i think it was jagsaw) explained the benefits we could get. Fight for khalistan, less discrimination, mlre protection as a protected class. So i realized even if i dont agree, but there is a benefit to some sikhs somewhere,.then i should support the sikhs fighting for it. Or atleast not sabotage their attempts. In all big families/communities, all will not be on the same page nor same morality/thinking. But to be united mea

  26. Its due to grammer. Its called vyakaran in gurmukhi. The silent sihaari and aunkard tell is if the object is possessive or plural. Gurmatbibek.com has some articles on this. However taksaal believes you should pronounce every thing. So you would say naaaamuh. Stretch out the first vowel so when u pronounce the second vowel shorten it so it doesnt change the meaning. Like sssssssti. This is called lagu and deerag. They teach this in santhiya. Take santhoya classes.

  27. This 'thing' has been around for decades. I remember someone saying the same thing about murderer KPS Gill (and others) decades ago. Although the name changing thing might be a reality, 'besmirching' someone like this is also a ploy by certain 'proud' casteist people to deflect from the reality that some of their own have been up to dastardly, shameful deeds.

  28. No its a phenomenon in panjab. That low caste ppl adopt high caste last names. So now its a thing in jatt circles to say this name has been totally corrupted or ur guyss last name has been totally converted to low caste or nowadays one cant tell the caste cuz anyone will take any name etc

  29. The thing that shocks me is that we still get apnay saying all this about Indians like apnay aren't and haven't been doing exactly the same. Let's keep it real. I think our lot are some of THE worse when it comes to that mental slavery you talk about. And I'm sure you know that hordes of apnay/apneean would crawl up a gora's gandh and have contempt for most of his own Sikh brothers/sisters. I mean look at how many apnay fought for blighty when they had other apnay actively trying to free Panjab like the Ghaddarites. I seriously hope apnay don't try and jump on some high horse

  30. In most nations, no matter how despotic the rulers are, they will alway defend their country, even the elites. India is the only nation I know of that the elites will collaborate against their own for a foreign power. Other countries would execute their traitors for treason. India on the other hand, traitors get rewarded. What a rotten society it truly is.

  36. read the history of what it was like British Raaj in muslim majority areas in Punjab. There's history involving Kartar Singh Jhabbar. Also I wonder what would have happened during partition? I think there would have been the same battles no matter which side we stayed on. Look at Action day and the terrorism committed by Muslim League in Punjab before partition days.

  38. It would be terrible. How would we have fared in a military ruled state? Pakistans always have military coups where dictators rule for 10+ years. Plus we would fear suicide bombers. I think pakistan was listed as the country with most suicide bombings in public places. Also taliban stopped women from attending schools in the frontier areas. And we would live in a place where paan would be spit in the streets.

  40. It helps me as a religious person to not fall into the God of the Gaps theory. Also to see which mistakes i as a religious person should not make that people of other religions have made. Such as interpreting their scriptures literally. Such as maintaining that God is scientifically provable. I mean the the laws of science are so ephemeral. Newtons laws dont apply at quantum level, quantum mechanics cant apply to macroscopic levels. Time is not absolute. How could God be defined by wat he created? The books also ends on a positive note showing how religion will be needed to solve et

  45. One thing I hope we all have learned is that if this mocking was done to Sikh faith we will NOT act this way.besides being cruel n killing innocents It is not effective n has more ppl digging up the cartoon.also it will ruin the life of the revengers n the Sikh ppl will have to face backlash.Rotting in jail, running or dead, will be there lot. While the Sikh nation has to bow head in shame or deny. YES We SHUD STOP it. But not by using drastic measures that it does not warrent. Yes we follow Gur Ki Ninda Sunai Na Kaan. And protests are not a suitable answer: we call attention to it which i

  46. Yes there is a video by Sant Singh Maskeen Ji where he gives Sikhs flak for kicking out the udasis n putting in committees at gurudware. He was like before katha used to be done 3 times a day by knowledgable Sikhs on ithiaas(Sooraj Prakash), gurubani( lardivaar katha), and Das granth ( I think). And now he said patits are the pardhaan of the gurudware.n he goes on about our foolishness. Ive been trying to find this video of Maskeen Ji but cant, if anyone knows it please paste it.

  47. Maharaj doesn't punish....its the opposite really. I got into a couple of accidents and used to be scared I might run someone over then how would I cope for the rest of my life. Was paranoid...and thought if it was in my karam then nothing can stop it... But now I know that more gurbani sewa simran one does the more karma is eliminated so all those times I was supposed to suffer, now I won't. Listen to kirtan to relax be like I am listening to kirtan so now in the Lap of guru no need to worry. He does all as long as I listen to kirtsn I am safe but if ur mind starts thinking too much and worry

  48. New surrounding would help. But punjab is suffering not enough Sikhi there, maybe if u went to a dera, like Taksal or Nihangs? But I think u shud attend local camps or international Sikhi camps.Also read meaning of gurbani and try to connect them back to gurbani. like Sant Jana Mil Har Jas Gaa-eo: The Saints meet to sing god's praises. Sant -saint, Jana-ppl Mil-meet Har-God Gaa-eo-sing. etc Also read Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
