  1. WJKK WJKF I have a question for the sangat. I have been asked to go to our head office in France to complete some work but i am concious about travelling due to the dastar issues at airports etc. I was wondering how the Singhs travelled to France for the smagam end of last year and did they encounter any problems? My options are to travel by plane, eurostar or via car using the channel tunnel and i want to know which is the most hassle free and will allow me the freedom to travel without issues of kirpan and dastar. Hopefully someone will be able to reply. WJKK WJKF
  2. Fateh Its a bit late to start a petition? I mean, we had 7yrs... To petition less then 10days wont achieve anything. You will be better of doing ardaas to maharaj india are not able to repair the problems with the village and then most countries will pull out anyway - Watch the news, UK and Scotland give more concern to their athletes residence then to the state or political affairs of the country.
  3. Its the same as tying a dastar except its generally alot smaller - maybe 3 - 5 lars and you keep your ears out. There used to be a video on "Sikhnet" titled "tying a House turban" or something along those lines... They used to have a few videos on tying different dastars. If it helps... http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=tying+a+keski&aq=f
  4. Gurfateh Ji, Any clue on the time it will go live? also what is the channel number? I couldnt see this information on the website. Thanks.
  5. This is the same crap given by camp organisers all the time. Why cant you organise camps in places that do not own halls that run ANTI-GURMAT practices? When i went to Khalsa Camp for the First and LAST time, we confronted organisers about the onsite bar. We were told we should look at our own jeevans before commenting. Sorry, but the sandesh and previous hukham from akaal takht says Gurdwara premises should not include or support any NON GURMAT maryada. By holding your camp at this gurdwara indirectly supports it.
  6. WJKK WJKF I have been putting off for the last 3yrs travelling to my company head office in France due to the ban of the Dastar in schools etc. Now, i need to go as i must work with a colleague on a big project and working my phone / email and video conference is not sufficient. I am waiting for approval of my travel but wanted to know if anyone has travelled recently and had any problems with dastar at the airport etc. If you could reply asap, it would be much apprecaited. Thanks. WJKK WJKF
  7. WJKK WJKF If you mean the seva of washing darbar sahib, normally starts around 12.30 i think from memory and you dont need a pass. The only requirement is: Your Amritdhari male You have a dhari You do not wear pajama I think the same rules apply to Akaal Takht Sahib to but with Akaal Takht Sahib, Bibia and non amritdharis are still able to pass water to the doors while the Singhs wash / dry the floor / walls. The Pakarma is washed around 2.30 (again from memory) and everyone is able to do this seva. Ask a sevadar at darbar sahib for the timings. If in doubt about whether you will be a
  8. Try ringing a few places for quotes. Might want to try Thandi Coach as they do private hire and might be cheaper then a gora company. You will need to know what size coach you want, ie 30odd, 40odd 50odd, double decker etc.
  9. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Yesterday i received numerous texts informing me the BBC are doing an article on the Kirpan and the chances are it would be negative. I did not get a chance to view yesterday so thought i would catch up today in my lunch break. I seached good news for "Sikh Kirpan" and the following appears as the top hit. "Mightier then the Kirpan" - http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2010/feb/09/dagger-dilemma-sikhism-kirpan-schools Upon reading the title and description, i assumed being on the guardian page, it would be written by a gora. Then i ope
  10. lol also, does anybody know where to download sundri from? or any of the other vismaad movies?? Vismaad Productions made a HUGE loss on Sundri from people making copies. They are not asking for much - we were all quick to bang out a £4 direct debit for the sikh channel because we think its our seva and all the other crap but we cant make a £10 purchase once a yr for a dvd? Instead download it? Shameful. I was looking forward to BUYING this dvd as i have always bought them. I was not able to see the viewing in my city and wont be able to make it to the other ones either therefore knowin
  11. Fateh Ji I think this is a good idea however the moorakh standing infront questioning it still wont believe you. Maybe its worth creating "licesnes" as such - similar to those Nihang Singhs have in the Dal. This would determine you are Amritdhari and this would be approved by the stupid government and police force. This would then have to be relayed down to all security firms to ensure these things done happen in the future. At the moment, the Kirpan is an exception to the weapons act however those who need to know, dont know this. I had a policemen tell me it was a weapon and i had to remo
  12. Waheguru Ji Ka KHalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Firstly, i apologise if this offends anyone. Secondly, Singh# Please yourself SHUT UP because you are really starting to get on my nerves and probably the majority of other users. For the rest of you forceful individuals, No one is obligated to pay anything to the Sikh Channel. If they want to donate, they can. They do not require to set up a direct debit. So what if they did not receive the requested 10,000 direct debits. Whats your point? They wanted 10,000 direct debits of £4. That equates to £40,000 correct? Now i saw a thank you to a Gurd
  13. lol the singh sabha gurdwara in southall has a pub opposite it (glassy junction) less then 20 ft away. no1 says anything about that. Unless they own the pub, its irrelevant. Most Gurdwaray in UK have a pub located only a few steps away. The point is the Gurdwara should not be using any part of their owned / rented property (including community centres etc) for the purpose of anti-gurmat activities including, meat and alcohol. This was reiterated in the sandesh issued from Akaal Takht Sahib 2006. I think a copy can be found on the forum in another section.
  14. Sikhi is about humility, does that mean we simply kiss the feet of those who slaughter our faith? I am a culprit for breaking this rule. I must beg forgiveness. Being an Amritdhari doesnt mean you have to be a wimp for the rest of your life. It means, yes you are humble and accept maharajs hukham. That is the humility maharajs talks about. Living in the charan of others. To do seva of the panth. This is humility. To hide away and not say when something is wrong, is cowardly. There are Sakhis i remember listening to when i was finding my path to Sikhi and they stick with me to this day such a
  15. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh My apologies firstly for not making a post earlier in relation to the beadbi. Yes, the committee is responsible for the disrespect by Bob Ainsworth for not telling him to cover his head and take of his shoes. This should have been done on him simply entering the Gurdwara. BUT this is still not a viable excuse for the fact he was not able to read the signs or even notice every individual around him was not wearing shoes and had their head covered. He is not a new councilor, he has been on the scene for years. This is not his first enounter with si
  16. Can it be confirmed if Sangat will follow to the River or just a select few sevadaars as normally when distributing ashes, you are supposed to board a boat and go out into the river rather then at the river bank. Thanks.
  17. What is the purpose of posting the video on here? These guys are jokes, amritdhari's with dhumallay and sri sahibs in clubs doing the gigs!?! In the video one of the fools appears to be wearing dhumalla but has a trimmed up beard! i know they sometimes tie up their dharis but still, this is a joke. These guys should be boycotted. They activley promote a bad name for Singhs. On one hand, we try to convince sikhs clubbing and music is wrong as were given ears for Bani to be heard and mouths to sing it yet these guys, in the same roop - amritdhari, Guru Jis Fauj's Roop are in the face of it
  18. This is outrageous and totally unacceptable. Have passed on the link to this item to several contacts that have legal background and deal with police. Our objective should be to: i) get an immediate written apology from the most senior police officer in the region; iii) publicise this apology in the Sikh/Panjabi media; and iii) try and make sure through ACPO that this does not happen again. ACPO contact and a Sikh who has dealing with many police forces has come back with the following. Please ring Harmander Singh Need additional details, Time, place (which police service) etc. H
  19. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Saad Sangat ji, a benti, please can those with legal documents please post a message in response as i require this to make a formal complaint against the police force. Last night a police officer spotted the end of my kirpan and requested me to remove it. I refused and he stated its classed as bladed instrument n therefore i have the option to remove it myself or be arrested. I made him radio it in to his sergant infront of me which he did. His superior stated unless a Sikh is wearing "religious clothing" (a bana or something similar rather then tra
  20. Thread the tora thru the chand (so it goes the gap of the chand, onto the base of the khanda and back thru the chand Then after a couple of round head, put over the chand base as normal im sure theres a video on youtube? Other option, jus super glue the 2 pieces together..
  21. badam, mishri, milk, letchi, kali mirch (pepper - the one u grind), kuss kuss, naam simran, bani That should make u a very nice bata full! (apologies if i missed anything out.. been a long time since i helped make it last..)
  22. Paji, linux isnt very stable.. it just appears it.. its a good hacking tool but in terms of stability, its ok.. but not as supported as windows.. Linux is used by more advanced users hence it appears more stable, where as basic users operate windows OS's in the majority. They find its unstable as they dont make effort to maintain windows updates, service packs etc. They will probably have crappy norton etc which dnt really help as they attract more viruses then kill.. those who know how to use windows properly, they will configure it to a high level so its stability is next to none
  23. WJKK WJKF Paji this response shows ur lack of knowledge... Badly.. Windows is not the worst.. there is MUCH worse, infact windows is one of the best and user friendly OS's on the market, its only downfall is its licensing as even i agree, they do overcharge. For those of you who flaw its security? Is this because you your selft dont know how to lock windows down? and make it secure or because you hear it and continue the rhumours? Windows is actually a very secure OS providing you use it properly. Actually take the time out to learn the features it provides. A great response will be MS hav
  24. The girl doesnt have a valid case. There is no symbol in christianity which needs to be worn for a religious purpose. There religion states to take communion or a blessing from the priest in the church. They do not need to wear items for religious reasons. Sikhs wear the Kara for its meaning and purpose, also a gift from Maharaj. a ring is another way of wearing jewelry in school hence the fuss is being made. Wen i was at school, i went to a church of england one.. Alot of goray argued to wear the cross (which they were alowed being the nature of the school) purely so they cud wear a chain.
