  1. These woke people will also be curtailing gun rights which may lead to restrictions on kirpaans. And woke ppl support beadbi like inter religious and gay marriages. And may enforce them on religions. Like dally said, its best not to choose sides btw right and left. Best if we played both sides. So its good if we have sikhs on both sides as long as they dont bring those political divides btw sikhs

  2. I think the family is Ahmedias or Qadianis who are classed as non-Muslims and oppressed in Pakistan and not allowed by Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj. The interesting thing is how the Muslim organisations in Canada have now 'accepted' them as Muslims in order to further the Islamophobia agenda. The Ahmedias also have kept quiet as they think that this could lead to some sort of acceptance of them in the larger Muslim community. You can see that they were Ahmedias but the sign left at the site and carried by some who protested against the crime. "love for all and hatred for none" is a A

  3. The Lower Mainland gang violence disproportionately involves (Canadian-born) Punjabis. Most of the gangland killings involve Punjabis killing other Punjabis. The police considers them mostly low-level guys who can’t control themselves, unlike the sophisticated Asian and Biker gangs that work silently but control most of the networks. It’s saddening to see another dead young brown kid every second week. It has nothing to do with bullying or racism, or other any economic reasons. They come from our typical well-off Punjabi households with immigrant parents who have worked hard to realize th

  7. Seeing as sport has such a large audience, it's probably the perfect platform to make political statements. Like Jesse Owens winning the Olympics in front of Hitler and the world. I know football in the UK has had serious issues with racism and rightwing stuff since I was young - it'll be good to rub it in certain people's faces. Taking the knee is not the end of the world. There are lumpen sections of white society here that are determined to ignore the existence, let alone the impact, of racism, both historically (as in colonialism) and currently. It's important to let peopl

  8. It’s hard as hell if you want to follow Sikhi but your parents don’t want you to Sounds like you found a nice balance to keep your parents happy while building foundation of Sikhi jeevan with the rehit/nitnem Agreed it’s ok to wear kirpan prior amrit

Do try to take sometime and do or listen to some paath for some peace. Also, maybe also try to talk to your husband about how you are currently feeling and possible counselling?

  13. Unfortunately we find ourselves in a culture of elders are 'right' and you must stay with parents to respect them. I've found is alot of katha vachiks also like playing to the ego of the elders for popularity and usually throw masala to get brownie points. Having respect for elders and caring for them can be done in many ways. Yes some can have bliss under one roof but it's not wrong to be around for family but just living separately especially if it isnt working under one roof. Mental health is a big issue and sometimes staying under one roof just doesn't work and the clash can

  14. They are all in it together. That's how they make it a culture, hence 'systemic'. The football fan types just articulate what the more clever, devious types up top believe and promote on the sly. The working class guys express their thoughts openly. So whilst a racist manager/director might deviously make an ethnic's life difficult at work through selectively handing him/her the most difficult work, and set them up to fail. The lower end ar5eholes will be the ones who will be implementing this plan and directly creating a toxic environment for the targeted people. And they routinely turn

I can just imagine it: The MIL "dont start foolish arguments, let the girl be married off first, with your incessant talking and debates, you have alienated all of our neighbors and friends. Stay quiet and dont ruin the girls life!" I am terribly sorry to say theres only 2 ways two deal with these type of people. Be extra strict or humble. 1. The amritdhari person can just say I have taken amrit and vows to the panj pyare and I intend to live by them. I just do what my guru says and am too dum

He, along with notorious sellout Ujjal Dosanjh, and National Posts's Jonathan Kay are a trio who go to great lengths to knock us down in the public's eyes. They will list off all the usual GOI propaganda points and barely mention the atrocities we've had to face. They want to instigate us, annoy us, shame us, and make it seem perfectly acceptable to tarnish a small minority community with no nation state to call home. Try it with

  22. I think you imagine some sort of paradise here. Sikhs have fought and asserted themselves since the 70s here. Facing violent attacks, blatant racism at work and on the streets. If Sikhs have a right to wear dastaars, it's because people fought and agitated for that right. If Sikhs have a good rep, its because of the previous generations moral code and work ethic and even impressive trade skills - which was the first point of contact between working Sikhs and the indigenous working class. So no, those of us who lived through this don't take this for granted, and given the increasingly open re-a

I don't mind if you want to help others, but then stop operating under 'Sikh charities' when Sikhi is not your first and only priority. Its become business model....if we had the money power like others do by all means help all we can ...we dont! Even if you want to help others, they just go too far too much simping Last week i saw video on fb of Mid-30s Granthi passed away and his 3 kids under age 5, youngest aged 2 screaming 'daddy daddy', he was the only source of income and they come from very

And if Tulsa grew, what sort of model it would have provided to not only the black community in the US, but globally too. It just confirms what a lot of us have known for a while, white supremacism actively tries to derail other communities, and afterwards turns around and claims the people are inherently savages, whilst they themselves have contrived the situation. This is just a macrocosm of millions of little things that are done on a day to day level to subjugate and put back commun

Proceeded straight to arumna, or preserve, of the Maharajah's, which we supposed to abound in wild hog, hares, and black partridges. The Sihks, incontradiction to the religious tenets of most of the other castes in India, are very fond of pork, and Runjeet cultivates grain and sugar- cane round this preserve for the wild hog

  29. According to Alexander burnes, Maharaja Ranjit Singh's favourite topic of conversation was wine. 3. A conversation could not, of course, conclude without his favourite topic of wine ; and, as he first sat down, he remarked that the site of his tent was an agreeable one for a drinking party, since it commanded a fine view of the surrounding country. He enquired of the doctors, whether wine was best before or after food ; and laughed heartily at an answer from myself, when I recommended both.

  34. You'd get a lot more respect collaborating with the Sangat to provide a gurmat education in the Gurudwara or a Bunga. All a Gurudwara needs is one head teacher to coordinate tutoring and lessons using the Sangat and even the children to teach modules. Have a main lesson conducted within earshot, that anyone can attend or focus on, especially if that's their material, and study groups clustered around the main lecture can be doing their individual reading or working math sheets in groups etc. So then since five you've been hearing lectures on medicine, or physics etc. If you t

It can be read at http://sikhdigitallibrary.blogspot.com/2019/11/amarnama-pharsi-mool-panjabi-utara-tey.html In amarnama, its written that Guru Sahib ordered His Singhs to jhatka the goats at Madho das (Banda Singh Bahadar) dera. Guru Sahib always loved low caste poor people. The wild people came to Guru Sahib and Guru Sahib gifted them goat meat, 1 elephant and 5 strong bulls but did not give any cow because Guru Sahib loved cows and wild people would hv killed cows for food.

The left wing narrative has been that the Jews suddenly appeared in Palestine and then forced the Palestinians out of their lands. The truth is that 800,000 Jews were also forced out of the Arab countries and they resettled in Israel. The issue is similar to the partition of Punjab. Both sides had to lands that they had lived in for generations, the Palestinians left Palestine and the Jews left Morocco, Tunisia, Y

Personally, I think verbal descriptions help us understand but recording can ruin the state of those who are taking amrit, it can distract the panj piare, and it will overall make the sanchar more ritualistic and showy. Guru Sahib took the panj piare in a separate place (the tent) and we should be free from all distractions when taking amrit
