  1. Clear as day that these people were not brought up in Sikhi and have no knowledge of Sikh history. They just parrot what their liberal arts and womans studies courses teach them. SINO=Sikh In Name Only

  2. There is no need to be aggressive with anyone. Knee <banned word filter activated> reactions are never a good idea. Just don't be a liberal a$$hole and challenge those in our community who are. The external enemy is never as dangerous as the internal traitor. The biggest traitors are those who look like they are devout Sikhs and yet are willing to subvert our religion and go against the Rehat Maryada just to win brownie points with their liberal backers.

  3. Because that was a paid agenda bro, it's a paid program that was set up here, and it had ways of enticing people into it, some of those ways were cult sex practices. White people are also more than happy to appropriate something rather than assimilate to it and so they are happy as s*** being the real Sikhs while the rest of us are sidelined you know what I'm saying? These white Sikh organizations are paid for, they're set up by Intel services. Have you ever seen how smug these guys are when they're confronted about being in a cult they know and they're happy as s*** about it bro. Yogi b

  4. By the same logic pocs should be beating goras left and right for all the <banned word filter activated> they have done around the world. They have committed so many crimes on a large scale against people of color but act like they are defenders of morals. What a joke. Thats why every sikh needs to learn martial arts and show these people their place. When all we do is act like victims on social media they think we are weak. Throw a few punches back and show them their place.

  5. Although people accept the Shahmukhi script as a valid script for Punjabi, there are number of Punjabi words which can be misread if they are written in Shahmukhi script rather than Gurmukhi. We need to stop catering to their whims and insist that Gurmukhi is the only script for Punjabi. One thing that I have noticed is how Pakistanis misspell Sikh names as well as other words associated with Sikhi. I think it is intentional, a way to show that these are unimportant.

  6. I think the British army is a good for our people to keep the martial spirit alive, learn how to shoot and how to survive in the wild. They days of military interventions on behalf of the USA are pretty much over now so it's unlikely any apna will get killed in enemy fire while fighting for the British army. The army is something like 82,000 regular and 30,000 reservists so if we have a couple of thousand apnay in the British army that would be a good thing especially if there any civil unrest and a breakdown in order. What I really hate is the inordinate amount of subservience that we tend t

  7. This is quite contextual. Unless you are a male with lots of sisters or one of those players, I guess you pick up and learn a lot about female nature living with other females other than your mother. Most guys tend to use their mothers as a template of how women should be. However, they make the mistake thinking that their spouses are going to be exactly as their mothers. Your mother is your mother and she gave birth to you and will treat you different than your wife. The aspect of your mother that has something in common with your wife is the context of how your mother treat

  10. These Christian missionaries were indirectly welcomed to Punjab because our fo.ols wanted to show how great we are by helping Christians against the Hindutvis. When that missionary gora Staines was murdered by the Hindutvis, the first thing our people did was stick their noses into the issue. We needed to keep out and defend our own people in Punjab but our lot were so stup.id that they tried to insinuate that the Hindutvis were trying to defame Sikhs because the murderer had the surname SINGH! The missionaries even went to Akal Takht to seek 'protection' This is the level of stupidity that o

  11. Good to see them take the initiative to build a Gurdwara. For the Parchar to be a success there will need to be a Gurdwara in each of their villages. Do you know what efforts Sikhs organisations are making to do parchar in the Jaat areas. There is already a Sikh Mission in Hapur which is near Meerut. The DSGMC is in the centre of their areas. Any ideas if they have become involved in these efforts. The present Jathedar of Akal Takht seems to be better than the previous ones, any idea of Manoj Singh has approached him for help? The SGPC has a Dharam Parchar committee, have they been appr

  12. Why dont sikhs ever unite and vote for people who stand for sikh rights but go give vote to Congress,aap and other nonsense? Muslims unite and vote for Congress as they know Congress will do things in their favor and not BJP or aap. So why do sikhs not vote for simranjeet Singh mann or people like him who stand for sikhs? Even jaswant singh khalra's wife didnt get elected when she stood for sikhs. I think our people deserve all this mess. We do not have an iota of ingroup loyalty nor do we have any vision for our future.

  14. There's a satirical cartoon i came across a few years ago that's worth mentioning. It's a scene showing Trafalgar Square in London in 2050. There's a bunch of white LGBT / flower-power / Far-Left activists being made to kneel before Nelson's Column while black-garbed Islamic executioners stand behind them ready to behead them. The Muslim executioner asks them if they have any final words, and the goreh activists reply with, "I blame the Nazis." The same principle applies here.

  17. The largest ethnic minorities in the Netherlands are Turks, Moroccans, and Surinamese. We can infer that ‘Timur’ here most likely has Turkish origins and isn’t ethnically Dutch. It is funny how he thinks making fun of someone else’s religion is OK. Would Timur be OK if the same thing was done with Islam?

Sikh clergy, scholars reject Modi’s Veer Baal Diwas — ‘10th Guru’s sons weren’t just brave kids’ https://theprint.in/india/sikhs-reject-modi-idea-of-veer-baal-diwas-guru-gobind-singhs-sons-more-than-just-brave-kids/800143/ PM Modi said Sunday that 26 Dec would be marked as ‘Veer Baal Diwas’. Apex Sikh bodies & scholars say move is appreciable, but the words don't do justice to Sahibzadas’ martyrdom. CHITLEEN K SETHI 11 January, 2022 08:00 am IST

  19. Not reading the article as it looks stupid write-up justifying the usage of "get rid of beard" society stigma in this world. If you see from the pictures comparison, you will see how author picked the fat guy and slim guy in comparison and one can judge the biased standpoint of the writer based on this pick. I don't think he trimmed it right? it is just that he is now putting lot of chemicals and glue it down? I used to this un-natural process back in the days and i have no issues with folks doing it or not doing it. However, i would like everyone male/female to stay on the natural beaut

  20. if you look at those historians and civil servants who studied sikhi( at time of Raaj ) truly they were either Irish or scottish roots I think it is because they are in touch with their poetic roots and empathy for man and beast (nature) . So Guru ji's words struck them just right. The germans /french/English were soulesss. When I did my famiy roadtrip around Ireland both North and south the historical treatment and methods usd against the Irish were reused against the sikhs in Punjab that's why the Irish and to a lesser extent the Scots will understand our position and our fighting spirit

  21. Looks like they are very suspicious of your email! There is no doubt there is sexual abuse in our community but these types of organisations are solely founded to create jobs for liberals and their friends. The liberals tried to set up organisations to combat Sikh 'extremism' in the mid 2010s but there were not takers in the government so now we have organisations that combat sexual abuse. The only organisation that actually battles sexual abuse in our community is SAS and Bhai Mohan Singh. This SWA wants us to believe that there is no issue of sexual abuse by paedophile grooming gangs. There

  22. nah they only seem to have it covered , my two university friends (muslim one singaporean daughter of nepali convert other Pakistani married to bahraini) made it clear to me that most muslim girls are desperate to act out but toe the be respectble line for folks at home , both girls had experience of being molested by men one by her scripture teacher in her own home, the other when out and about. The second girl corrected my assumption about clothing in homes and under burka/hijab even in Saudi , she was quite clear that the women folk wear westernised clothing also and even miniskirts , shor

  23. This is true. My mother was around 14 that time (1984) and she lived in a pind right next to Bhindran Kala, she said that at that time not many people were completely aware, even the older folk. She even saw Sant Ji once but he was always surrounded by a large group of bodyguards.

  25. This is the Quality over Quantity BS that we have been happy to lazily espouse while the rest of the world increases around us and our population remains stagnant. Our population only increased when we achieved political power, this is always the main way that religions become dominant. The Christians were small communities around the Roman world for hundreds of years fighting over minor details between each other until Constantine made Christianity the religion of the Roman empire. The latest research shows that Islam did not create the Arab empire, it was the Arab empire which created Islam

  28. I completely agree. There was a Khatri Jathedaar. Khatri community used to say that there is no sikh like him on the planet. Whenever anyone tried to ask him about the need of khalistan, he used to say that no need to talk about khalistan, just read gurbani and khalistan will automatically come into existence. I think he was afraid that if he gave some views about khalistan, Indian agencies etc might get after him or keep an eye on him.

My biggest problem with bhappaas is that they shud stop controlling panthic organizations. They hurt panth a lot by doing so. Other than that, I wish bhappaas good luck for their life journey.

  32. Careful not to equate hijabis with their Sikh Amritdhari equivalents. It's an easy trap to fall into. There's a WORLD of difference between the two if we're looking at it from a purely basic, academic perspective. People see the hijab and assume it's a guarantee of religiosity, but it's not. Hijabi is like the Punjabi (Sikh background) party girl who decides to wear a chunni for the rest of her life (literally wear it on her head; not have it dangling from her shoulders). That's all it is. It's usually a directive from a father or male relative in exchange for some semblance of freedom. Amritd

  33. It's actually Chaudhry Karma Chhina who along with other Chaudhrys of the Majha such as Rama Randhawa and Sahib Rai Sandhu were the ones who assisted the Mughals in hunting down Sikhs during the 1720s onwards. The Chhinas, Randhawas , Sandhus and Dhillons were the biggest Jat gots in the Majha. The only Chaudhry who did not take part in helping the Mughals was the family of Bhai Langah who were Dhillon Jats and from whose family came Mai Bhago. The Dhillons as a got never took part in the anti-Sikh activities of the other Chaudhrys and they went on to found the Bhangi Misl which was the larges

  34. Let it hunt. Take it to a farm and let it hunt the mice and gophers. Perhaps like snakes, once they've fed they are full for a week or so. The trouble will be if it hunts on its own, why would it come back to the human? Also baaj are trained by feeding them Maas diya Botiyan. I think even after training it might need to be fed to reward ot and keep it coming back.

There are reaction videos for everything: music, tv shows, comedy etc However, the interesting thing I noticed is the number of Pakistani reaction videos to Bani and Kirtan. I think what has happened with the advent of the internet, coupled with the yatras of gurdwarae of Pakistan and made the local Pakistani populace quite curious to Sikhi. I know on other threads we have spoken about Haryanvis coming to Sikhi but I think (could be wrong though) you could "potentially" s

I have family back in punjab and I remeber constantly trying to convince them to not vote for congress or akali but no luck, some of them you'd rather bash your head against a brick wall then try to argue with them, no use. They often promise them government jobs and stuff, in exchange for votes, otherwise the well paying government jobs are basically impossible to get, which is we have so many punjabi sikhs moving abroad, happen to a few of my second cousins. Another reason they vote for these akali and congress is becau

  39. You really should try and educate yourself on the social dynamics of Punjabi village life. Each caste relies on one another and a stable village life would not exist if Jats are going around oppressing and raping Dalits at will. You seem well read on many things but you are grossly ignorant about rural Punjab. Rather than wasting time in Goa with the hippies or going to see the Taj Mahal like every lame tourist, why don't you go and live in a Punjabi village for a few weeks. I can guarantee you that it will be a life changing experience for you. So the next time some freshie tries his GAPPAN o

No matter what 'sewa' this guy Swaiman Singh did, his ideology is anti-Sikh. Hear how he refers to Guru Nanak as a comrade! To equate the life liberating Gurmat of the Gurus into an ideology like Communism which caused the mass murder and deaths by famine of tens of millions in the 20th century and which has failed in each and every country that it has been tried in shows the deviousness of this person.

  43. Veerji Very nice information. From what I hv talked with jaats, they were really impressed by medical facilities they received at kisan andolan. May be diaspora Sikhs can fund a mobile medical team which can go to villages in haryana and help people with medical treatment, medical tests and medicines. This will bring affection in the hearts of jaats for Sikhs. Affection is a very strong tool to win people to your side. Ideally, this medical team shud be of practicinh knowledgeable Sikhs who also believe in 'sarab rog ka aukhad NAAM". We don't need fuddu lefti

I had avoided watching this thinking it was the typical overacted, propagandist stuff like those three bhagat singh films they made in early 2000s or that gaddhar movie. Like dallysingh already stated, there is heavy Sikh representation and parallels to near and distant struggles against the powers that be. I’m actually surprised with those behind this film, that as non-sikh theywould go this far for us. Maybe it was unintentional, maybe not, but the gutt-wrenching end scenes will have every sikh thinking about 84. Honestly, I have not seen any Indi

  45. Personally speaking, I used to think just like you, but now I think rewriting an author's work and presenting it as the original is disgraceful and intellectually dishonest. By all means make comments on the contents in footnotes or explanatory essays and whatnot, and disagree with it wholeheartedly, but to project a piece of work as something it was not seems deviously deceptive. I'd want to know exactly what Rattan Singh Bhangu wrote and make my own opinion. We know that the word 'Hindu' never solely had a 'religious' definition previously, and that it also had a geographical definition i.e.

Seeing the Gunn in others should motivate us. That's why 'dekh ke undith kita' is part of ardaas. We should focus on the good in others. It's too easy to see the faults in others and use that as an excuse. Also remember you are not your thoughts. Thoughts come and go. If they are negative, that means ur mind has been fed a diet of negative things. And when we are becoming good, that's when thoughts are the worst, because all of
