  1. It's amazIng that when people actually start to read rather than follow like sheep, they realise what mahraaj is saying for themselves instead of following jathebandia rules and regulations. Well done sunny I dont expect much debate now that people have read what mahraaj has said.
  2. Don't know if you missed my post but as I said previously if listen to the katha of jap Ji sahib by Giani thakur you will have alot of insight into this and many other question I'm sure you have. You will understand the deep hatred why fanatical Hindus don't like Sikhs, the sikh dharam basically makes Hinduism extinct, but you will learn why and how also other religions are here, there was a quote by the Giani Ji that just because god sent one prophet with his message doesn't mean he message was complete, he had more to add thus sent further avatars with more knowledge. Obviously with some avatars coming here and getting caught in maya lost track and people started following the avatars instead of the almighty one who had created them, like the Krishna Vishnu etc Hindus worship them not the almighty one. The Giani goes on to say that they the avatars are also subject to dharam raja so how can they be the almighty ones and explains alot of very interesting knowledge that I gaurantee will answer your questions.
  3. For your inf Gur Fateh Kuldip Singh ----- Original Message ----- From: UNITED SIKHS To: kgujral@sky.com Sent: Friday, December 09, 2011 9:26 PM Subject: Sikh Man Stabbed at Fresno airport. Sikh Community in deep Shock Winner of the Sikhs and Charities Award December 09, 2011 25th Maghar (Samvat 543 Nanakshahi) Community UpdateHaving trouble viewing this email? View it on our website. Sikh Man Stabbed at Fresno airport. Sikh Community in deep Shock Anup Singh, ex-SGPC(Sikh Parliament) prachark (preacher) stabbed at Fresno airport. His appearance as a Sikh was a key factor in making him a a target. UNITED SIKHS is working with the authorities to make sure that justice prevails The assailant has been arrested and not charged with hatecrime 8th Dec 2011, Fresno, California: A 56 year old Sikh preacher, S. Anup Singh was attacked by a 26-year-old white man named Mitchell Dufur at the Fresno airport earlier this week. This terrifying incident has left the Sikh community in a shock. According to the Fresno Police Department, a 56-year old Sikh man from India was seated near the Transportation Security Administration terminal waiting to board his plane when he was stabbed. There was no communication between the victim and the assailant. The Sikh traveller suffered a minor cut to his upper torso, and was treated at the airport prior to resuming his journey back to UK. UNITED SIKHS team spoke to a Fresno resident Bakhtawar Singh, an eyewitness to this fearsome incident who had gone to drop the victim, Anup Singh. Bhaktawar Singh said, “This young man came forward and lunged at Bhai Saheb, who donned an open flowing beard and hit him with a knife just below the collar bone. Few minutes before the incident, I saw him going towards his bag and taking something out but I didn’t know that he was going to stab. I don’t sport a full flowing beard and don't look like the images being flashed on TV screens and this may be the reason that I was spared”. Meanwhile, the medical doctors arrived and Anup Singh Ji was bandaged and he chose to travel to his country, the United Kingdom. According to sources, the assailant has not admitted to any charges and motives for this act as yet and has been charged with minor clauses – 1. Carrying weapon at the airport and 2. Assault with weapon. This will allow him to elude from any major punishment for this very heinous crime. UNITED SIKHS has contacted the local authorities and also elevated this incident at the federal level and will work with them to make sure that justice prevails. Kashmir Singh, Director of UNITED SIKHS, said, “We are in touch with Anup Singh and understand that he was in a state of shock and thanks god who protected him from this not taking a turn that would have cost him his life." Anup Singh also said, “I saw hatred in the assailant's eyes. I urge all Sikhs while travelling to or out of the United States to be careful and alert as this incident has literally shocked all of us. Clearly one can see as to why I was the prime target and no one else around me and it is primarily because of my appearance. Donning our Kakkars ( Sikh articles of faith) is our birth right. Its a shame that even today within the United States hatred and prejudice are still prevalent and their casualties are innocent people" Earlier this year, two elderly Sikh men were gunned down in suburban Sacramento on March 4, Surinder Singh, 65, and Gurtej Atwal, 78 when they were walking through a neighbourhood in Elk Grove. Police are investigating the fatal shooting as a possible hate crime potentially linked to the men’s appearance. Both men wore turbans and long beards. The incident has once again highlighted the issue of Sikhs being repeatedly targeted for their appearance and dress code. A lot of these incidents also go unreported and that does not help the cause either. Ensure to be cautious while travelling. If you suspect any possible threat which may bring harm to you or people around you, please don’t take it lightly and call 911 to report the incident. Victims of hate crimes and racial profiling are also advised to contact UNITED SIKHS to advocate on their behalf.

  4. Jsingz, it was told we should learn all other religions first then come to our own to finally understand. You can be a Muslim and still follow Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji The answer to all your questions gurdsingh are in jap Ji sahib. If you go to gurbaniupdesh.org you can listen to Giani Thakur singhs katha on jap Ji an I guarantee you will find your answers, the question you asked here is exactly what the sidhs of india asked Guru Nanak Ji mahraaj and jap Ji sahib was the answer.
  5. Strong action was taken with dastaar day, but then nobody was really interested because we dont need it,this sort of stuff never really happens until.....
  6. Ye Kachera do but I'm pretty sure that you measur the area you want to cover and make like a box/rectangle shape put a nice fancy border on there with loops in each corner so you can tie it. If in doubt check your sachkand at your gurughar.
  7. Get your mom to make it, nothing better than homemade ramala or chanduaa fir mahraaj, were sucham and pyaar will be observed, dint bother with that ready made shizzle that's for the pakhandi gurus
  8. I'm on here pretty regular and I haven't seen a topic about girls etc RECENTLY. So maybe you have just started a gender war lol
  9. The topic started off with the bibi saying that more bibian should were dastaars to boost confidence etc, by giving a dirty body clean and fancy clothing doesn't make it clean, if you have a soul who is still working on his sikhi and is still prone to mistakes then he or she should refrain from wearing the dastaar to protects it izzat. Coming to my point, singnia that wear dastaara are pride of our panth but when someone who isn't ready for the dastaar and still wears it the negative effect is as high. For women who feel discriminated, should think that they are responsible for the soorme of the panth but when the woman does wrong they are also responsible for a stain that the panth will find hard to wash
  10. Its a hard choice where to put your dasvand but it's even harder to take dasvand out, main thing your taking the right step, do bent ardas to mahraaj and tell him to decide for you where best to put it, afterall his the one taking it out for you and giving in the first place. whatever you do dont put it in a golak you know that's just gonna get put into a saving account, put use to your money make it work
  11. Boys wearing a dastaar isn't optional it's mandatory, whereas girls have a choice, they might decide a turban dont suit me so a patka is fine, not all girls obviously but some. But this topic is going somewhere I'm just replying to your dastaar pat of it, yea it might be the case where you think twicebefore you doing any wrong but it doesn't mean they're singnia out there who think the same as you. I personally had to go to a singnia house to complain that our sehajdhari brothers are moaning of a singni chilling with the wrong kind getting in cars etc etc so I know why girls will get mist of the blame but it's the girls who hold alot more izzat of our panth. I mean how bout that girl (amritdhari)that supposedly nearly converted to islam, how bad is that it sent shockeaves through the whole world but if you catch an amritdhari boy who commits a kurehit it's not something that gonna shock you even though it might hurt initially.
  12. Yeh I too agree with idea of helping youth from your pend, get them into sikhi. Build a library or help the local school in buying books or computers with Internet connection to better there education, but with strings attached, ie there has to be a gurmat lesson a day etc. Or what we done was to upgrade our local granthi so he can teach kirtan santhia etc and just pay his monthly wage. Better still support Khalsa aid who support a variety of much needed seva
  13. Wearing or not wearing dastaar does not solve the problems of today. Not wanting to wear a dastaar is a problem in itself but not panth destroying. I don't think is fair to pressure girls into wearing dastaara as they have a whole load to deal with facial hair issues etc. And the idea you have that sikh girls with dastaar are good girls is laughable. Some wear a dastaar to be noticed, or it makes them look better not because of Maryada. The issues between girls and boys I do not know about, maybe because I don't interact with singnia at all, don't need to, therefore no problems arise. Maybe the sikh girls you are on about are the ones who are not keshdhari and are your regular indian punjabi girl who dates and gets into this mess which then makes the sikh panth look bad as she is from a sikh background but not actuallly practicing.
  14. Gurfateh Ji The Nanakshahi calendar is the one we go by right?? Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can dates for 2012 as I have googled it and ive had varied results confusing me even more. Or better still just give me the dates for holla mohalla and Guru Nanaks Avtar please.
