  1. Tarsem Singh Sandhu is not jatt? In any case, your general point still stands. Note that when Sandhu was fighting for his right to wear a path while driving a bus, it was an elderly so-called bhapa (I think his name was Jolly) who stepped up and threatened to set himself on fire in protest. This despite jatts always mocking "bhapay" for being cowardly (and various other things).
  2. Yes, this is true. But the thread poses a question about UK paghs in general, not just paghs worn by proper singhs. Anyway, the fact that most young Singhs in the UK wear a dumalla (as opposed to a nok wali pagh like the older generation) just shows how little the older generation did to pass on Sikhi to the next generation. Many young singhs in the UK got into sikhi on their own and therefore adopted the dumalla (perhaps the style most closely associated with traditional sikhi).
  3. Most Sikhs in the UK tie the Kenyan style pagh because most turban-wearing Sikhs in the UK are tarkhans whose family roots go back to Kenya (or other parts of East Africa). Note that tarkhans make up a majority of turban-wearing Sikhs in the UK even though in the general Sikh population (turban wearers and monay), tarkhans are heavily outnumbered by jatts. This just illustrates how pathetic jatts are. (Note: I am jatt.) The few young men from non-tarkhan backgrounds who do wear paghs tend to also wear the Kenyan style. This is because they'd rather fit in with their young peers who also wear paghs (most of whom are tarkhans wearing the Kenyan style) than look like the two or three jatt uncles at the gurdwara who wear Punjabi style paghs. (Examples: Jassi Sidhu, Jay Singh Sohal, etc.)
  4. When is the last time you saw a sabat soorat singh as the main character in a Punjabi film? And I'm not talking about people portraying a religious/dharmic/panthic figure. I'm talking about everyday protagonists. The fact is, people want to complain a lot of about Bollywood's portrayal of Sikhs, but the Punjabi film industry is just as bad if not worse. All you see is monay and stupid trimmed "Singhs" with barely any facial hair.
  5. There is nothing we can do. For every young Sikh woman who keeps her kesh, there are maybe 5-10 young Sikh men who keep their kesh. So except for the lucky Singhs who find life partners who have kept their kesh, most Singhs will be left with one of three options: 1. Try to convince a hair-cutting girl who most likely prefers a mona to marry him 2. Give up and remain single 3. Trim his beard and/or cut his hair Indeed, there is a problem with the community mindset. And this problem is only going to get worse with time. 99.9% of Sikh kids who grow up in hair-cutting families view Singhs as weird extremists and want nothing to do with them. Of course, there are the 0.01% from this group who will move towards Sikhi, despite all the odds. What about Sikhs who grow up in "keshdhari" families? Most of them will cut their hair and raise children who adopt the views of the children described in the previous paragraph. 90% of the boys will at some point trim their beards and/or cut their hair. And 95% of the girls from such families will cut their hair and only marry monay.
  6. Before you go around insulting others, you should learn how to write properly. Anyway, you are obviously hot-headed and immature. And I am not impressed by your bravado. Calm down a little bit and think about the situation carefully. There is a difference between doing honorable work protecting those who need it and getting mixed up in a world filled with moral ambiguity where you may be doing (or be asked to do) a lot of harm (in addition to putting your life on the line). My grandfather was a police officer, and things aren't as simple as you try to make them out to be. I am "interfering" with my advice because I'm not a teenager who thinks that everything in life is about having the "ballz" to do something or not. What is the point of potentially dying over something stupid?
  7. Where in my post did I say anything about individual police officers? All I am saying is that there is a better way of making a living than putting your life on the line for (in many instances) morally ambiguous reasons. This is more true of the military than the police.
  8. Exactly. Pannu is a complete fraud who is just trying to raise his profile for the benefit of his business interests. I feel bad that some well meaning Sikhs are gullible enough to be fooled by a two-bit con artist like Pannu. He is pathetic.
  9. This double standard exists because, for generations, it was the norm for men to wear dastars whether they were religious or not. Drinking has always been common among "Sikhs", even when virtually 100% of the men were Singhs. It only relatively recently that "clean shaven Sikhs" have existed in large numbers. So you still have a decent amount of men who wear dastars and are not particularly religious. Similarly, it was the norm for women NOT to wear dastars, whether they were religious or not.
  10. Sikhs for Justice is a scam It is an organization run by some two-bit "lawyers" who deliberately make noise to raise their profiles and benefit their own business.
  11. Please speak for yourself. Polish women are not particularly attractive. Anyway, are you married to a 1984 orphan? Here are some things I never see: 1. Canadian Sikhs who don't "act like they're black" 2. Anyone wearing a turban in the Doaba region 3. Sikhs raised in the UK who pronounce Punjabi names properly instead of adopting the gora misprounciations 4. Punjabi film actors who are portraying Singhs who have enough respect for the role to grow out their beards instead of wearing tacky fake beards 5. "Urban" Sikhs having trouble finding wives within their own community 6. Sikhs marrying people from other religions and bringing their partners into Sikhi 7. UK born monay who decide to become Singhs and then manage to die a decent looking pagh (Their fathers don't even know how to tie paghs, so who can blame them?) 8. A non-horrible Punjabi movie 9. Sikhs outside the UK who write "penji" and "pend" instead of "panji" and "pind"
  12. Why do you want to put your life on the line defending corrupt governments/systems?
  13. I really don't have time for people like Sarbjit "Singh". This guy spends so much time making videos and professing his love for Sikhi and concern about Sikh issues. And yet, he is so embarrassed to be a Sikh that he goes out of his way on a regular basis to remove his beard and hair so that he can avoid looking like a Sikh. Why should I take anything this guy has to say seriously? Why should I care about what a Sikh who is embarrassed about being a Sikh has to say? If he cares so much about the Sikh religion and Sikh community, why does he opt to look like a Hindu/Muslim/Christian/Atheist/Whatever rather than look like a Sikh? He would literally have to do NOTHING. How much can he possible care if he can't even do something that simply requires doing NOTHING? (Letting your kesh grow out requires zero work. On the other hand, removing kesh requires work.) He is a pathetic coward. People like him make me sick, and the fact that there are so many like him illustrates why today's Sikh community is so pathetic.
  14. I agree. Duleep Singh was deadweight. And his "change of heart" towards the end of his life was fake and misleading. His life was in ruins and he was desperate for money and status. Does anyone really believe he got into Sikhi and had a spiritual reawakening? If you do, I have a bridge to sell you.
