    How do you wash a dastar?

    Just throw them in the washer on quick wash, cold and minimum detergent and tumble dry on low. Do it just one at a time if you're worried about them tangling
  3. Modernity sucks bro, how are we ever going to recreate Singhs of such high calibre? Think it's an impossible task to recreate the scenario that made Singhs in that specific context of that time, but what would the modern translation and equivalent be?

    Poor nutrition diet. You can be physically fit being vegetarian, but it takes a lot more discipline so you don't get fat (even when lifting). Most vegetarians eat super unhealthy food and don't exercise so it's a bad combination. I make all my food usually (not for bibek reasons), but because it's easier to be healthy and vegetarian that way.

    Police Told To Get Out Of Gurdwara

    Yeah you have to pick them up and clean them. I haven't done it personally but from what my friends tell me it's not too hard at all. Just one weekend day in the garage and you're good for some time! Pretty therapeutic I would guess lol

    Yes brass can be recommissioned for a certain amount of uses and then recycled. Overall just much cheaper while doing the labor on your own. I personally don't but my uncle does as he's really invested a lot.

    Police Told To Get Out Of Gurdwara

    For all practical purposes it's not expensive at all. Pistol ammo can be very affordable if you buy a 9mm which is plenty. For rifles, it depends on what you're using. There's surplus ammo that you can find good deals on, but if you're really serious then you can take the initial plunge and buy setup where you can reload your own bullets. Will end up being cheaper in long term and you can customize the weight and everything. I sincerely think the most important thing to learn is a pistol > rifle > shotgun in that order. If I were to only own one firearm, it'd be a pistol for self defense purposes. Go read some Dasam Bani or even Bhai Vir Singh's books that has a table about how vast majority of castes mentioned in Bhai Gurdas Ji Diyaan Vaaran are khatri. Mentioning caste and trends doesn't equate casteism. To understand and deconstruct things you have to first talk about it. Just because an individual puts on earplugs and gouges their own eyes out, it doesn't change reality. Not talking about something will only supress things and make it worse.

    All the Singhs I know are strapped bro. Regularly go to the range and all that. It's the Khatri dominated Sikh Coalition that has pretty much spewed this victim mentality that we're a bunch of bullied individuals so please feel sorry for us. Their politics manifest that way too because they care mostly about their kids not cutting their hair and thus will go to extremes to ensure that doesn't happen. Jatts have arguably more negatives with trends imo, but in this specific case I do think Sikh Coalition has done a lot of harm.

    Good on them for standing up, BUT they should be smarter than to post some of the things you can't really blame the police for doing stuff like this when a lot of people are posting things completely non-anonymously. Keep things gupt.

    Buddism & Hindusim Thriving in West

    They're not Buddhists or Hindus in any meaningful sense of the definition. It's just a hip way of poorly appropriating an aesthetic to seem "hella spiritual". Main weakpoints of Hinduism and Buddhism that Sikhi doesn't have is the conscious formalization of SIkhi as a religious Panth. That's why they are falling apart in the diaspora. The problem with Sikhs right now is losing our numbers due to accelerated modernization with an already stunted Sikh population. The big religions are already huge, but they can "afford" to lose the masses that they are. If we lose what we have, it will be tough to recover in the future due to the trend of getting absorbed into westernism.

    Clearly wasn't goreh, but it's interesting they're still calling it racially motivated. Something's off here. https://www.west-midlands.police.uk/news/7027/cctv-images-released-smethwick-graffiti-investigation

    You guys are severely disconnected from news if you don't know who did this and should likely start sincerely trying to figure out politics in the UK, especially if you're in the UK and still don't know who did this. We shouldn't be trying so hard to be patriotic in the west, but simply honor the Sikhs for being Sikhs. The extreme is to call every Sikh who served in WW1/WW2 as an evil blah blah of Empire which imo is bs. The same Faujis who served utilized their expertise to combat against a Muslim larger opponent when partition rolled around. Some things aren't black and white, but I do agree we shouldn't try hard to be patriotic, especially since the UK always back stabs Sikhs and yet kisses up to Mussulleh
  14. So instead of getting competent people in Sikh Saroop, get people not in Sikh Saroop who don't follow the Hukam of Maharaj to run things? LOOL What makes you think the corrupt pagh wale will allow moneh to do something if the corrupt pagh wale won't let the competent pagh wale do something?
  15. It's natural that we will have people who are not kesh-dhari, but if we look at the political climate of the 1980s - it was a religious movement and not a socio-political one which is why people started to give up drinking, returned to work and started to take Khande Di Pahul en-masse. Sant Ji knew the way to reverse the currents of time and effects of modernity, Guru Sahib's vision of a Khalsa society must be created. Every mona shaheed Singh all respected kesh and eventually would have kept it, as many Singhs did. I definitely don't condone non-keshadhari hate, nor do I condone saying non-keshadharis are not Sikhs. My point, which I forgot to iterate is that I believe the normalization of non-keshdhari identity shouldn't be promoted. The promoting of non-keshdhari individuals in Sikh seats of power is a de-facto condonation of normalizing non-keshdhari identity which is antithesis to Guru Gobind Singh's hukam.
