  1. people have become used to comfort in first world countries. The smallest inconvenience happens and they act like the world is ending. Imagine how these people will act when something big actually happens? These people have forgotten nothing is permanent.

  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.

  9. There are many videos, people, articles and comments online claiming Sikhs were the main and first aggressors during the partition (1947). In reality, it was Sikhs who were first targeted by aggressive Muslim mobs in modern day Pakistan before the partition was even announced! Don't fall for any propaganda, especially Pakistani, which shifts most blame to Sikhs (as seen online and in movies/dramas). The looting, killing and abductions were all first unleashed by Muslim groups. 1946 genocide of Sikhs & Hindus in Hazara region Violence broke out in Calcutta, 1946 as the Muslim le

Will the Modern Slavery Act help Rajasthan’s bonded and child labourers who quarry stone?

  12. Well done to that Singh for all his technical skills and hard work. As members of the forums. I think we sometimes take for granted the Sikh Sangat forum which for over 20 years has been the number one Sikh forum for Sikhs all around the world. We don't know the hard work that goes into running a site. As someone myself who has some experience of website making and running I know it involves alot of time and skills so well done guys you have done a great job and long may it continue. if you need any help don't hesitate to contact me.

  13. It will do us better if we take a more positive attitude rather than picking negatives. Its the first time I've seen something like this. I think its great! It shows unity between different groups of the Sikh panth. Many Mahapurkhs have said that squabbling on a jatha level is frowned upon "up there" and this work looks to fix this. Yes, there are many other great GurSikhs Mahapurkh that have been left out. However, the GurSikhs included in the work are dependent on the sharda of the individual/family who has commissioned the work. If possible, can we name all of the GurSikhs in

  15. There were huge protests around India and many Sikhs helped protestors and very vocal about opposing the bills some years back. But why exactly did Sikhs oppose NRC & CAA? Wouldn't that bill be beneficial to Sikhs? Since it granted a swifter path to Indian citizenship under the assumption of religious persecution to any individual belonging to the specific minorities of Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan, who entered India on or before 31 December 2014.

  17. They are probably following standard Hindu/Indian names. There's also an Indian cricketer named Hardik Pandya, maybe they're fans? I don't think they realise what the names mean. A few prefix/suffix Panjabi names can also end up sounding weird! That's why I believe traditional Sikh/Panjabi names were best prior to this suffix/prefix trend.

  19. Sikhs are unprepared not because they think that God will hand them the raaj on a platter but they are unprepared because they have gotten used to the comforts of life and think nothing is going to happen so no need to do anything. Just look at the state of the world in 2022. Things were not like this before 2020. The world can change any moment but alot of Sikhs are so used to comfort they think nothing is going to happen. Specifically the ones in western countries. People who are too used to comfort will be the worst hit by a war. In fact people in India living in worse conditions can face t

  20. The world would be way worse if these people were not born. I think their purpose is basically to direct people towards the truth. How did Baba Banda Singh Bahadur change after meeting Guru Gobind Singh jee? Many people who sometimes are on the wrong path realize the truth after meeting pure souls.

  21. Any discussion on this topic would need to begin with discussing why your username is “Misterr” rather than “Mr”. You might say ‘mr was already taken’. But serious point - that’s how some peculiar names/id’s come about. What the person wanted was not available, so they picked something else. Even as a bit of a joke, maybe an auto suggestion, then it sort of sticks with them in real life. The names you mention probably originate from gaming platforms

  23. Veerji, in all my posts, I have never said that we are looking at Shaheed Singhs as our saviors and we should sit home and do nothing. What I am speaking about is the truth that Vaheguru ji always has a Shaheed Singh Fauj presence in earth that always guide us and are always in Chardikala for Khalsa Raj. As a panth and as a Khalsa it is all of our duties to ensure the stability of the Panth. The responsibility does lie on us but that doesn't mean that there isn't a Shaheed Fauj present with us.

HARDEEP SINGH 20th July 2022 Last week’s landmark report into grooming gangs in Telford made for truly horrifying reading. It revealed that 1,000 mainly white girls had been subjected to horrific sexual abuse by groups of men of mainly Pakistani heritage since at least the 1980s. Share

  25. Sant Baba Mani Singh was a Mahapurakh born and raised in Smethwick. My family is from Smethwick and they used to tell me he used to be in bana 24/7. He passed away fairly young. Regarding the Akal Bunga connection, I guess he took inspiration from the puratan name of Akal Takht. I doubt there is any real connection beyond that. He basically restored an old church and turned it into a Gurdwara.

  27. You're 100% right. Sects absolutely destroyed us. Heck, I'm even trying to overcome my own personal biases because of it. Dal Khalsa was one unified unit with a unified group of people, beliefs, marayada etc. It was one of the reason why things like the Sarbat Khalsa and jathedari worked so well in the past. However, as many of us have seen, these things are so difficult to apply in the current Sikh world due to these jatha loyalties.

Why were hindus able to elect Rajiv Gandhi after 1984 with majority? Your enemy who outnumbers you will vote in policies that are harmful to you.

  32. one of the clearest anti Dasam Granth corruptions is the way Kabyo Baach Benti Chaupai is cut and read by jathas and SGPC, and the gurdwaras they occupy such as Harimandir Sahib. It's a case of hiding anti dasam actions in clear sight where panth will not notice. At least sampradaiye don't buy into this, but this regular anti-dasam corruption affects a huge proportion of mainstream sikhs especially their nitnem and even amrit sanchar ceremonies! As for sects, there were always non-khalsa sects in sikh panth, and they can make any kind of sect or dera maryada they want. The problem

  33. Let’s try start or increase our mool mantar jaap. Because honestly there is so much sukh beyond any comprehension waiting for us. And what a shame this entire life passes never experiencing it, then being taken by jamdoots to dharamraj. When rather we could experience HUGE spiritual bliss in this lifetime and then merge forever into it. We just need to dig deep, push hard to get past stage 1 of washing our paap first. And it’s so easy with technology today, here’s a brilliant 3 hr jaap. You can have this playing while doing your daily work, household chores or cooking etc.

  34. Daas was thinking, our bodies are temporary and eventually pass, but our souls are eternal. So all gurmukh, sants etc. souls do still exist. But where are they? How magnificent that place must be where they all reside! Anyone who got blessed sangat of a gurmukh soul knows how beautiful it is being near them, how peaceful and bliss. But that place where ALL gurmukh souls of creation reside must be insane anand. Gurbani talks of Begampur (sachkhand) as the realm where all those mukat and liberated souls reside. A gurmukh soul of senior age was asked if he ever had darsha

  35. You mean like they used to do many years ago.... IF you go back some years you will see people blocked and threads closed quickly, just because there was something discussed that didn't agree with certain sikh groups. Some of the rules on this forum are an extension of the paranoia of beliefs from the wider sikh sangat.

  36. Oh I see. Just want to take this opportunity to thank the owners of Sikhsangat for running this site and doing a great job over the years. I wonder if you guys get any funding? As there should be something set up for contributing. Sikhsangat has helped thousands of people around the world from all backgrounds learn about Sikhi. So there should be fund raisers in place to keep the site going and even expanding.

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
