  1. I'm using internet browser on Windows 7 phone. How can I get the Gurbani fonts to show? Thanks
  2. Excellent news! How regular will the show be?
  3. It's up to the panthic thinking sangat to distribute the message in this Aadesh and make sure committees and local sangat have an awareness. Interestingly, I was talking to a Christian elder involved in the Methodist Church, who mentioned that many UK churches had stipulations around the sale of their properties in the hope of preventing them becoming "dance halls" or places of ill repute after the sale. Many of these caveats date back to the late 1800s.
  4. Anyone developing any Gurbani apps for the Windows phones such as Nokia Lumia 800? Has a SikhitotheMax app for windows phone been developed yet, like on the ios and android?
  5. Are we better off using terms such as "grossly offensive" , "deeply insulting to the sikh community" or "mocked the ideals of the Sikh community" ? "Hurting the Sentiments..." is probably used as it's a softer way of saying someones taking the P!
  6. Despatches, Panorama and other mainstream TV documentaries have covered exploitation and grooming of children by men of Pakistani Muslim origin. These documentaries have been informative and blunt about the issue. Ch4 and BBC have had no issues mentioning the ethnic origin of the perpetrators Excuses used by Sangat TV such as "seeking legal advice, police intervention, best interests for community cohesion" etc is just bull...
  7. In my view Sangat Trust are a bunch of old prabhandaks who don't really have any vision, they just survive each day as it comes. Sikh Channel might be controlled by one man but you've got a better chance of relevant current issues being discussed on that platform coupled with a higher quality of broadcast. I personally think Mohan Singh skills have been wasted on Sangat TV and the Sangat TVs poor broadcasts never gave justice to SAS issues. The Sikh Community need to see these kinds of shows and I believe it would get better exposure on Sikh Channel rather than Sangat TV. Just my view and before I get the accusation, I don't work for Sikh Channel. :bored: ..
  8. Has the couple been officially approached by the local Sikhs or Jatha about their activities?? Many people in the Sangat seem to know about their claims but has there been an official approach. Seeing they are children of a prominent Gursikh, I would have expected some Gursikh elders would have intervened and expressed concerns by now.
  9. Good luck with getting any response from Sangat TV. I still haven't got anything back regarding an email I sent to them about the promotion of Dehadhari sects on their channel. Ironically, on Friday 13 Jan around 7pm Sangat TV dedicated a useless hour discussion to Ladies Lohri activities whilst Sikh Channel did a show of the Battle of Muktsar at the same time. Sometimes Sangat TV simply lose the plot...
  10. Where's the evidence of these Offcom complaints??? And even so, there are other ways of countering complaints of "bias" rather than taking the route that Sangat TV did by giving the Congress a free Sikh platform!
  11. The formal Ardaas we are familiar with today was standardised under the Singh Sabha lehar and rolled out after the Gurdwara act 1925, the further insertion regarding Nankana Sahib and Pakistan Gurdwaras would have been introduced after 1947. The main structure of the Ardaas is believed to have been originally compiled by Bhai Mani Singh Shaheed with numerous additions being inserted over the years.
  12. It was Khalsa Aid who raised awareness of the term "Dharmi Fauji" in the global mainstream Sikh Community. Up until then, who or what sanstha, jatha, samparda etc was actually raising any awareness of these Singhs and their families or even supporting them? I never came across the term "Dharmi Fauji" in any katha, parchaar, fund collection or discussions over the last 25 years. So credit where credit is due, Khalsa Aid made us aware of this issue.
  13. http://www.facebook....137850446237006 Asad ji, Many thanks for bringing this to the global Sikh community's attention. Are you aware of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee? http://www.facebook....137850446237006 Perhaps they know more. The underlying issue is that if there is no longer a Sikh community in NWFP then it's unlikely the Gurdwara will be able to be looked after. There must be other Gurdwara buildings in rural Pakistan like this still surviving, I suspect most have been demolished after the Sikhs fled in 1947. I know the Kabuli Sikhs did some sewa in the 1950s to 1960s in bringing back saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji to Afghanistan (where there was an active Sikh community) from abandoned Gurdwaras in West Pakistan. I know an old Sikh originally from Kabul now living in East London whose father used to go in jathas over the border to Pakistan to check on the abandoned Gurdwaras. In many instances they found very old damaged saroops of Sri Guru Granth Sahib which they would bring back to Kabul and try to do the sewa of them. Some of the abandoned village Gurdwaras were physically looked after by the local Muslims after 1947 but as they became old their next generation did not have the same bonds with the Sikh community, so many of the buildings became ruins.
