  1. Information on Shingara Singh https://www.andrewwhitehead.net/partition-voices-shingara-singh.html Partition Voices: Shingara Singh Shingara Singh (who died in 2006 when reputedly aged well over 100) lived through Partition and by his own account was part of a group nicknamed the 'crows' which harried and attacked Muslim refugees in Punjab. He was a Jat Sikh and very much the patriarch of his farming family. I interviewed him in a village outside Amritsar on 19 March 1997 with Asit Jolly translation to and from Punjabi.Shingara Singh also recounted that he had been present at the Jal

  2. I've noticed the "Partition Voices" series doesn't cover any Muslims who carried out violence against Sikhs. This seems like another case of biased reporting and shifting most blame on Sikhs.

  3. As Shingara Singh stated, the main reason Sikhs attacked Muslim in 1947 was for retaliation. Sikhs were first targeted by aggressive Muslim mobs before the partition was formally announced. One of the first attacks was in 1946 in Hazara region After that, Muslim league grew violent in east Panjab cities such as Amritsar in February and Sikhs were again massacred in March 1947 in Toha Khalsa, Rawalpindi.

  4. I knew Babaji was a Majhail from his dastar and bolie . Looked like an OG you wouldn’t want to mess with. I read a little bit more about him and found out he had family members murdered by the Panjab Police in the 80s-90s.

  8. I've noticed the media tends to highlight "Sikh" if a person of Sikh origin commits a crime. Yet they refrain from writing Pakistani or Muslim if someone of that background does anything wrong. Especially the UK media seems to have an anti-Sikh rhetoric running. The BBC has also received criticism for pro-Muslim bias in their reporting. Another one is when Al-Jazeera, an Arab-Muslim news network made a hypocritical video on UK Gurdwaras not allowing interfaith Anand-Karaj but they never question Muslims for not allowing interfaith weddings in their religion.

  11. There's no religious, social, and institutional apparatus that will support anyone from these backgrounds once they become Sikhs. They won't be sprinkled with magic stardust and transform into SuperSikhs after conversion. They'll go from poor, disenfranchised Hindus to poor, disenfranchised Sikhs. Stop peddling fantasy. These people are human beings, not faceless units and bodies for whatever army you're fantasising about.

  12. I think one major part of the problem is the tendency to sort of regionalise or racialise Sikh identity, instead of revolving it around certain ways of thinking and behaving (on a deep level). Also, as I grow older, it becomes more and more apparent that Sikhi has a very strong intellectual component (as well as spiritual), especially when you look at literary activities in dasmesh pita's earthly time. I think most Panjabis are averse to this - or struggle with it?

  13. dumb punjabis have turned sikh celebrations into food parties where people only come to eat food. Go to any nagar kirtan you will see people lining up to eat Pizza, pasta and what not. I am pretty sure this is not what the purpose of langar was?

  14. Many earlier immigrant groups are an example of this. How many 3rd generation immigrants of non-English European origins still speak their language? They're completely assimilated but since Panjabis can be considered "newer" immigrants, they still live under a false impression that their great-grandkids will speak Panjabi and be Sikh. These people think listening to Panjabi music makes them "Panjabi" even if they don't understand a word.

  16. Personally, I don't think Panjab is a controlling society (compared to the middle east). I was quite shocked last time I went, its becoming increasingly liberal due to immigration. Barely any young man wears traditional clothing (both rural & urban) and women are adopting western clothing (in cities/towns). Almost everyone in villages has access to smartphones, social media and the internet.

  18. I recently revisited this translation I did over a decade ago. I don't think I shared it on this forum. I welcome any proficient Gurmukhi readers to constructively critique the translation: I found this text fascinating. It’s an extract from an old rehatnama which is commonly referred to as the Chaupa Singh rehatnama today. The form is which this document reaches us today is not without its own complexities (like many/most Sikh manuscripts of older provenance). The stark contradictions in various rehat instructions within strongly suggest interpolations so, in its current form, it appears

  19. That's very good to hear that Illi Najwa has married a Sikh guy. But I don't understand why Malaysia government is so corrupted and can't mind their own business because they called her to the government office to give some explanation about her going against rules of Islam and marrying a punjabi guys. Generally Malaysia's government is already corrupted and they have no other better work to do. I'm from Malaysia btw and I hate our government.

  20. My massi in Canada took Amrit a few years ago, shes the only person in my entire family that is Amritdhari. She ties a patka and then wears a chunni on top. My Nani used to keep her head covered at all times, she even used to go to sleep with her chunni wrapped around her! Whenever her chunni used to slip off she straight away used to cover her head again, like straight away. As a kid i found it funny and used to tell my mum that Bibi doesn't even let her chunni slip off for a second. Now i'm older i understand, they lived with dignity and poise. Women have turned it into a fashion

  21. If Singhs cover their head then women should too, Its also Guru Gobind Singh jis hukkam to keep your head covered. In India they just cover their heads with chunnis, while in the west mostly tie dastar or patka, i guess its up to you. My Nani used to wear chunni and she was Amritdhari. If your comfortable with chunni then just wear chunni as long as your head is covered. Sikh women covered their heads with chunnis for centuries, Sant jis wife wore a chunni. Singh with dastar/dhari and wife with a naked head looks very odd.

  22. Sikhi sees honour in honest work and true effort it doesn't matter if you are a road sweeper or a lawyer if you do your job with full honest effort and it doesn't compromise your sikhi all's good. I have three sons all three of them are different have different goals and interests , I would be crazy to think they all need to go through the cookie cutter machine that is university . In the original times of university it was basically a meeting forum for scholars to discuss and develop ideas . But now it is just a propaganda brainwashing process , e.g. medical students come out anti -alternativ

  26. its all about the material ur chunni is made of. get chunnia that r made of either cotton, or a rough material rough materials dont slide, but as it says above you could also use the little black pins. put them from the front of the chunni into your hair so that they dont come off or rip the chunni.

  28. hey if that musalmaan disrespected sikhi or our Gurus then......yeah you get my drift...i know how some of these punks are, they show up at these Vaisakhi parades with their homeboys and mock the turban and kes and Sikhs gurus and think they are gonna get away with it because sikhs just use swords as ceremonial things, but these people do not know that sikhs live by the sword....

  30. 2024: BJP seeks foothold in Malwa through Bathinda TNN / Jul 27, 2022, 08:33 IST Bathinda: Eyeing a bigger role for the party in the electorally influential Malwa region of Punjab, especially after the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) broke ties with it over the now repealed farm laws, the BJP is concentrating more on Bathinda to start preparations for the 2024 parliamentary elections. Seen as a gateway to southern Malwa, Bathinda is now turning into a major centre for the party. After Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri spent three days in Bathinda as part of BJP’s Lok Sabha prava

  31. The same group then boasts about being part of a diminishing 1.6% community and making way more contributions than their population. Literally destroying themselves to please others. Ravi singh also belongs to such groups. No Muslim will care if Hindus hate them or not because they know they have power. Powerless Sikhs are always begging left and right for the approval of others.

  32. Going in the west has actually damaged Sikhi more than benefiting it. Most children of immigrants will fully assimilate in a few generations, they won't speak Panjabi anymore or be Sikh (and many have already let go into the 2nd or 3rd generation). And since everyone is migrating, it will diminish Sikhi in Panjab further.
