    How is art considered in Sikhi?

    Art is very important and powerful creative force and tool in Sikhi, especially in story telling. If you look at historical gurdwara's they had art depicting historical moments of Guru Ji lives. Art is a way of conveying and expressing a story where words can not. As they say a painting can say a thousand words. Art is encouraged in Sikhi especially when it glorifies the creator waheguru, nature, Sikh history and and Sikh hero's. Also there are designs (mosaics) which can be seen on famous gurdwaray especially around the parikarma of Darbar Sahib. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-T129AybwJhM/U4LUfSz7gmI/AAAAAAAAB2E/OG6_3KW1er8/s1600/Untitled-3.jpg http://pictify.saatchigallery.com/files/works/sikh-art-sacred-aesthetics-of-the-sikhs-by-nikky-guninder-kaur-1358579095_org.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/4856/45864050192_0fdb4586c6_b.jpg https://i.pinimg.com/originals/d6/62/f7/d662f7c22d209b904a7c9c07de01eda1.jpg When you look at historical paintings of Sikh martyrs getting executed by muslim tyrannt regime and their footsoldiers you realise the cruelty of people and yet you had muslims and others who didnt believe such things took place then you had likes of isis come along and do things to non-muslims in iraq and syria which showed the barbarity that islam can inflict on muslim and non-muslim communities. And it confirmed to others that yes islam or those who follow islam to an extreme literal interpretation are capable of the most evil deeds and hence our hate for their evil poisonous inhumane ideology and their need to be exterminated from this world is justified. https://www.naukrinama.com/stressbuster/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/8-39.jpg https://jarnailarts.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/storming-of-multan-fort.jpg
  2. A great programme watch downloading for future and showing your family and friends https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bfnldw
  3. I would argue that Guru Nanak Sahib Ji did start a new religion by setting his own spiritual path different from Islam and hinduism which were the 2 competing ideologies in indian subcontinent and central and south asia as a whole. Guru nanak's message and teachings was universal and appealed to people of all faiths, he didn't stay in one place in punjab and preached. He went to multiple lands and nations to different nationalities, ethnicities and races speaking to people in a languages they understood about God and how to be better connect to Waheguru and live a better life than they were at the moment. He was the first missionary seeking converts to the new spiritual path as ordained by God. Had God wanted him to preach in one place to one group of people he would have stayed in kartarpur punjab and never moved. It is the Sikhs of today that are forgetting or deliberately ignoring this very important aspect of Guru Nanak Sahib Ji's life. They do not want to implement the reaching out to non-sikhs and sikhs alike spreading Sikhi they rather get on with their own selfish lives doing bit of naam simran here and there and going gurdwara and thats their bit for Sikhi done. Forgetting that the problems that Sikhs and Sikhi faces in present times is that selfishness not looking out for each other or helping each other in progressing as Sikhs or trying to seek new converts. And who is waiting in the wings to pounce on your sons and daughters and brothers and sisters cos of your lack of action? Well its the abrahamics and the atheist propagandists.. so therefore we cant not complain when your daughter or sister gets groomed by isis muslim extremists when you were never teaching her to stand strong and have pride in Sikhi.
  4. Personally I rate it at zero, non-existent. Islam's marketing strategy is probably no.1 right now 2nd is chrisitanity because they are aggressive convert seeking abrahamic faiths. And our situation with sikhi its much worse than other dharmic faiths buddhists and hindu's who do less than us in terms or charity and have less media exposure in the west, hardly don't do anything to attract new converts but still have large appeal amoung westerners because of yoga and meditation and these two faiths have powerful state power behind them (buddhists having burma. cambodia, thailand, sri lanka,etc hindus having nepal, bali and india). Where are missionary Sikhs at? Wheres Sikhi at? Wheres SGPC at? Disgraceful
  5. and the power behind the corrupt officer was the brahminwad hindu atheist regime in delhi. Like i said remove the financial control and you wouldn't have seen this happen. When sikh officers salaries are paid and they do not need to rely on outside actors for their daily bread they would never have transgressed against their fellow Sikh. The indian establishment knows to control and restrict the opposition you gotta get them by the finances, the mass national and international media propaganda and forceful brutal military might which they did in 1980s/90s.
  6. Sikhs are the only so called indian's or people from indian subcontinent that don't put up with crap and are willing to fight like lions thanks to our guru's teachings to take no crap from non-sikh offenders/aggressors. Constantly walking on egg shell days are over its smack down lay the sikh law down time.
  7. Sikhphobic = fear, dislike or hate for Sikhs offcourse it was sikhobic but also terrorism. I'm just trying to show sikhphobia leads to this kinda terrorism and acts of violence if not countered and and challenged early on. Our tolerate airy fairy inactive community tolerating it is part of the problem no matter how small it is it should be challenged whether from white terrorists (wisconsin 2012, covert and overt casual racism and violence), hindus (1984), musilms (1947, mughuls, grooming gangs, etc) blacks (covert and overt casual racism and violence).
  8. 'Names of killers still reverberate in my ears': 19 years after Chittisinghpora massacre, lone survivor recounts night that killed 35 Sikhs India Aamir Ali Bhat Mar 21, 2019 00:11:02 IST Anantnag: It was 20 March, 2000. The sky was murky and overcast. Just after dusk, worshippers were walking back home from the temples in the Sikh-dominated Chittisinghpora village in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district. Some were chatting by the roadside while the women were busy preparing dinner. It was a routine evening. Nobody would have thought that the small pastoral hamlet with a stunning natural landscape was about to change, that the idyll would be shrouded in horror and distress. A group of masked gunmen in army fatigues barged into the village. They split into two groups and rounded up 36 Sikhs, including teenagers, the young and the elderly. They made two groups of Sikhs stand outside the two gurdwaras in the area located just 150 metres apart. The terrified Sikhs were unsure what was going to happen when in unison, both groups of gunmen fired indiscriminately at point-blank range. All, except Nanak Singh, then 39, died. Nanak Singh, the line survivor of the Chittisinghpora massacre. Image courtesy: Aamir Ali Bhat The gunmen left, leaving behind a trail of dark memories that still haunt the villagers. The massacre had sent shockwaves across India. Around 30 women were left widowed and scores of children were orphaned that dreadful night. The memories of the carnage are still fresh in Nanak's mind. The soft-spoken and grey-bearded survivor of the Chittisinghpora massacre is a retired government employee. He lost his son, brother and three cousins that night. This is his recount of the tragedy: Winter had just passed in Kashmir. It was still a bit cold outside. I had donned a pheran. Like every day, we were gossiping as we walked home from the temple. A group of gunmen in army fatigues entered our village through a narrow lane from the back, their faces were covered with a mask. Their sudden presence didn’t frighten us as it was normal during those days. We thought they were fauji (soldiers). Later, their actions signalled that something unusual was going to happen. I don't know how many of them were there, but it was a huge group and one leader was giving them directions. They broke into two parties. One group went down the road towards Shaukeen Mohalla Gurdwara. "What's happened, sir? Is everything alright?" we asked the gunmen. "Yes, everything is alright. We have to check your identity cards. It will take 10 minutes. Stay here," they replied. The wall in the background contains pictures of those killed in Chittisinghpora massacre Image courtesy: Aamir Ali Bhat Some of them barged into houses located close to the two gurdwaras and brought more men out. Among them were my son Gurmeet Singh, who had recently passed Class 10 exam, my 28-year-old brother Darbari Singh and three cousins — 22-year-old Sartaj Singh, 20-year-old Kulbeer Singh and 25-year-old Ujjal Singh. Sartaj had been married for 10 months while Darbari was a farmer with two kids. Both his children aged less than 10 years. "Where are the militants? We have information that some militants are visiting this village," they said. "We haven’t seen any militants, Sir. You may have the wrong information," we replied. Sinister thoughts crossed my mind. I murmured into the ear of my neighbour Charan Singh, standing by my right, that we were going to die today. We could sense a murderous frenzy in the actions of the gunmen. They lined us up outside Singh Sabha Sumandri Hall Gurdwara. There were 19 of us. My son was beside me. I still remember I was seventh from the left side. At the same time, the other group of gunmen placed 17 Sikhs in a row outside Shaukeen Mohalla Gurdwara, 150 metres down the road. It was 7.45 pm. There were eight to 10 gunmen in front of us. We were still unsure about their plan. The first spot of the Chittisinghpora massacre where 18 Sikhs were killed. Image courtesy: Aamir Ali Bhat One of them fired in the air — a signal to the other group to get ready to kill. Then they shot indiscriminately at us. The firing continued for a few minutes. All of us fell to the ground. I didn’t receive any bullet, but I dropped to the ground and played dead, I was murmuring, "Waheguru Ji, Waheguru Ji", under my breath. They stopped firing and flashed torches at us. "Akh round aur maro saalu ko. Koi nahi bachna chahiye (Shoot these idiots again. Make sure everyone is dead),” one of them ordered. I became ready to die this time. They fired at us again, and one bullet pierced my left leg and broke my right thigh joint. I didn’t scream. As they left, vanishing through the route they had come, they chanted 'Jai Hind!', 'Jai Mata Di!' and 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai!' I was bleeding profusely. I opened my eyes and found someone had clutched me with his arm. I lifted his arm and looked closely, it was my son Gurmeet. I shook his body, I called him, tried to wake him up. Then I touched his head; it was soaked in blood. Tears rolled down my face. I was not able to stand up. I wanted a sip of water. A pile of bodies was lying before me in a pool of blood, some were still shaking and wobbling. Each man was hit by 10 to 12 bullets. That dreadful scene is imprinted on my mind. My cousin Sartaj was robust. With his bullet-riddled chest, he walked up to our house. Then the villagers came, beating their chests. They picked me up. The gunmen had turned our village into a slaughterhouse. The road ran red, and blood squished under shoes. The Bullet marks are preserved at the second spot where 17 Sikhs were killed in the Chittisinghpora massacre. Image courtesy: Aamir Ali Bhat Sartaj and I were placed in a room. There was no vehicle in the village. Men, women, children, everyone was crying and screaming for help. Some young Sikh villagers ran to the police station, around seven kilometres away from our village. I too was crying. Shrieking. I had witnessed the brutal death of my loving son. "Why are you crying? Stop screaming," Sartaj was telling me in a broken voice. By the time police reached our village, Sartaj had taken his last breath. He might have survived if he had been given immediate treatment. The police took me to Anantnag district hospital, from where I was shifted to Bone and Joint Hospital, Barzulla, Srinagar. The next day, I was referred to the army hospital, where I stayed for 25 days and was operated on once. I was still unable to walk. I went to Amritsar, where the Sikh committee took me to a senior doctor. I was operated twice. My damaged hip joint was replaced by an artificial one. It took me months to recover. I didn’t even take part in my son's last rites. I stayed with my relatives in Jammu for some time, to get over the shock. Nothing is worse than to witness the gruesome murder of your loved ones. While the gunmen were conversing, I had heard three names — Pawan, Bhansi and Bahadur. I don’t know if these names were fake or real, but they still reverberate in my ears. As the lone survivor of the massacre, I gave scores of interviews. I was an eyewitness in a number of courts and government offices. Nothing happened. Then we lost hope of justice. It was a premeditated massacre. We only saw a flawed inquiry and later, fake promises. A widow points at the name of her husband killed in the Chittisinghpura massacre. Image courtesy: Aamir Ali Bhat The massacre was carried out to give a wrong message about Kashmir to former US President Bill Clinton, who was visiting India. Everyone is aware of the Pathribal fake encounter, in which five innocent civilians were killed, and later dubbed militants responsible for the Chittisinghpora massacre. Even the CBI report suggested that the five civilians were killed in cold blood in Pathribal. After the massacre, people suggested I migrate from Kashmir. But I refused. Why would I leave my village? I was born here. I lived here and will die here. We didn’t make an issue of the massacre. Everyone in Kashmir had been witnessing death and destruction for decades now. We still live happily with our Muslim brothers. The criminals failed to break our bonds. I can only say that it was a miracle that I survived, for hundreds of bullets were fired at us at point-blank range. Three-day mourning for Chittisinghpora massacre victims Nanak now lives with his other son, Manmeet Singh, also a government employee. Every year, on the anniversary, Sikh villagers of Chittisinghpora commemorate their loved ones. They observe three days of mourning and memorial events. They have preserved the haunting memories of the massacre, but have lost hope of justice. Nineteen years have passed, and the killings are still shrouded in mystery. After the Chittisinghpora massacre under SRO-43, every victim's family was given Rs 1 lakh and a government job.

  9. Many valid points raised here. The cuckold asians/browns/indians/sikhs need to wake up and man up. Stand up for your own community and do not tolerate any BS from others who hate in their hearts and minds towards you cos your different to them racially call them out for it it's as simple as that. I've met some wonderful good hearted black and white people but I've equally met evil nasty vicious racist black and white people. People are people regardless of background, those who hate you for no fault of your own cos your racially different to them are ones with the problem not you cos your born into the colour and skin that you are. It's not yours or our fault, our race can't be changed but most peoples racist attitudes and views can be challenged and changed. Besides we have beautiful skin and racial features that God gave us but we dont go bigging it up and being supremicst about it unlike the white and black supremists you see on the internet. We are more proud of our beautiful gem of a religion than ever could be of our race or colour.

    Why are muslims so evil?

    chill out hindu boy keep your anti-sikh statements to yourself. Suprised they still allow you to post your nasty sikhphobic comments on here.
  11. Notice the kara on that officers hand. The b@stard brutal brahminwad corrupt racist system used and still uses sikhs against other sikhs to do its dirty work and has done so for decades by the use of financial control and thus forces people to act against their own. Remove the power to influence and control non-sikh has by money and you remove most of the problems the Sikh nation has faced.
  12. Bring them on bro i'd intellectually smash them over the place lol i ain't the one for tolerating no sikhphobia from be it blacks, whites, asians, browns, greens anyone who is sikhphobic and/or is racist is getting called out.. I've called out white racist terrorists who attacked sikhs. I've called out hindu and muslim extremists who are sikhphobic. I'm consistent and other Sikhs need to stand up for Sikhs and Sikhi simple as that. And any so called punjabi /indian Sikh who is racist / castist against other races/castist will get it too. I fight for my dharam my deen Sikhism not my race not my caste my religion is Sikh my caste/race is human
  13. One of the most important books covering the period of the troubles in punjab and why once pro-india Sikhs took up arms and fought back against the tyrannical anti-sikh oppressive indian state
  14. In Sikhi divorce is a bad thing for a reason but even then people do get divorced very quick these days and even if she is divorced if shes a pretty girl there will be no end of men wanting to get with her. Perhaps shes the one with the problem maybe too choosy/picky or too hard to get on with shes got a personality disorder? is very hard work? all kinds of issues she may have that men just dont find attractive to want to marry her for. I'll be honest most Sikh guys prefer non-divorcee women and especially sikh mothers do not want a divorcee for a daughter in law. They see it as too much baggage and suspicious of what the woman got divorced and they are scared she will divorce again because shes done it one already. Divorce literally ruins and rips apart families. And its perfectly understandable and logical why most Sikh families stay clear of divorced women. Also Sikh men are stupid for tolerating subtle sikhphobic content from bbc news call it out when you see it but instead we debate it we do self loathing exercises. Clearly BBC news is trolling Sikhs here cos they never ask Sikh men these questions always letting the women feel the victim yet no support no sympathetic articles about Sikh men and their struggles in life. Come on guys call out the anti-men anti-sikh agenda see the bigger picture look whose writing the articles and what effect it has.

    Why are muslims so evil?

    are you low IQ? or a troll? Not all Muslims are evil. Some people are evil regardless of faith/race/nationality. And yes Islam does teach some things we deem as wrong, bad or evil from our perspective but you can't generalise and group all people as evil come on stop being playing games.
