  1. Thank you everyone for your replies, I really appreciate it!!

    I have had my eyes tested recently and everything is OK!

    I have always had anaemia for as long as I can remember, but I never experience these sorts of severe constant headaches before tying a dastaar, and I still don't when I tie my hair in a plait....but I will definitely take on your advice and make sure that I consult the doctor about this again!! He is aware of my headaches and has only ever told me to take supplements!!

    To the veerji above, I really appreciate that input because sometimes I feel that they are a result of a lack in my spiritual life!

  2. "Melbourne: A Sikh man was found guilty of domestic violence and sexual attacks against his Indian wife by a court in New Zealand.

    The man was yesterday found guilty by a jury at the Napier District Court on multiple counts of rape, assault and threatening to kill for a series of attacks against his wife in 2012.

    The man cannot be named in order to protect the identity of the victim, who came to New Zealand from India after marring him, NZ Herald reported today.

    The jury spent more than four hours deliberating on Tuesday and yesterday, before returning guilty verdicts on eight charges and a not guilty verdict on one charge.

    The court heard the man kept a 45cm-long knife by their bed to intimidate and frighten his wife into having sex. As well, he physically abused and threatened to kill her.

    Police in Hastings said the Indian woman, who broke away from her arranged marriage to tell them of her husband's recurring sexual attacks and beatings, was particularly brave, the report said.

    Police detective Rob Parker said it showed domestic violence and that type of abuse "exists in all facets of society, it doesn't matter the culture or the demographic".

    "...this complainant has been particularly brave. She had no one to turn to. Not only was she battling the cultural aspect, but she was in a foreign country," he said. "

    Although this is disgusting, funny how NDTV have gone out of their way to label him a "Sikh" man.


  3. Regardless of whatever our personal opinions are, Canadian court cleared out those singhs. So lets give it a rest.

    Brushing issues like this under the carpet because they were found innocent in a court of law means nothing. What about all the people found innocent in Indian Courts despite being clearly responsible for murdering Sikhs in 1984? We are a strong and proud community and our Gurus have left us a beautiful legacy that we should be promoting to the world. We can only do that once we solve the issues and misconceptions we have amongst ourselves. Many people think Sikhs are a hypocritical joke because of this incident and quite frankly I don't want this stain on us in the international spotlight, but I also don't want to be an <banned word filter activated> that denies it ever occurred if it did like I previously have. Many of my Punjabi friends even think Amritdhari Sikhs are terrorists and have brought up the Air India bombing before and I've just brushed over it and didn't do any research because I thought "no that can't be true we were framed". Now that I am though, questions are arising. We need to stick together and figure out how to solve these issues. Sikhi believes in justice, not revenge. Justice is bringing someone who has done wrong to justice and making him pay for his actions. Revenge is taking it out on people who had nothing to do with anything. I know many years have passed and we may never know the full story, but I think as young, educated Sikhs we should no better than to just decide not to talk about it.


  4. Fateh, what sikh girl are we talking about here. Just because someone has deep at the end of there name doesnt make her/him a sikh.

    How is this baisti,get a grip. Bet she doesnt consider herself a sikh but we do lol.

    Rosedeep, can you please name me 10 most popular wiskeys..yes no problem.

    Rosedeep, can you name me the ten sikh gurus..eeerm, can i call a friend...Moooh

    Fateh...I said Punjabi, Sikh was not mentioned anywhere....I do not consider her a Sikh!


  5. What is happening to our community?

    Living in fear for her son: The mother-of-five who woke up one morning to find her little Mikaeel had vanished
    Ever since the appalling moment when she realised Mikaeel was not in his bed, Rosie Kular has been enduring her own private agony.

    She has been comforted by her mother and specially trained police as both officers and members of the public search for her three-year-old son.

    Indeed, it is impossible to imagine what has gone through her mind since 7.15am on Thursday when she realised the little boy was missing from the family’s first-floor flat.

    Ever since the appalling moment when she realised Mikaeel (right), three, was not in his bed at their flat in Edinburgh, Rosie Kular (left) has been enduring her own private agony

    So who is Miss Kular, the 33-year-old mother of five whose family have been catapulted into an unwelcome spotlight?

    She was brought up in a detached house in an upmarket part of Edinburgh. Her father Gurbux, who is from India, died aged just 43 when she was in her teens.

    Her mother Harjinder, 60, has since married twice, most recently to Dr Bangarpet Krishnaswamy, 69, a GP originally from Bangalore, who also develops properties in Scotland.

    He is the director of East Neuk Healthcare, which owns a 40-bed nursing home in Anstruther, Fife.

    The family live in a large two-storey detached home on a small upmarket estate, with a navy Jaguar and dark blue Volvo parked in front of the property.

    After studying at comprehensive Balwearie High School in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Miss Kular went to Fife College and graduated with a HND in beauty therapy, which she now uses to run her own mobile health and beauty studio.

    Among Miss Kular's friends was Mohammed Omar Abdi, 25, who was killed in a gang gun battle in Edinburgh last year. Both pictured, above

    She works full time and has also been listed as a director at an IT company. For a time she was a customer services assistant with a gas company.

    At 24, and heavily pregnant, she married Omotoso Adekoya, a Nigerian taxi driver who had originally come to the UK to study.

    Three months later she gave birth to son Tarun, their first of three children born in four years.

    David was born in 2006 and daughter Renuka came two years later.

    The relationship broke down, however, and although the couple are not divorced Mr Adekoya lives in an apartment near Miss Kular in Edinburgh.

    His mother said he is a ‘gentle person’ who was so devastated by the breakdown of his marriage that he has not met anyone since.

    By 2010, Miss Kular gave birth to her fourth and fifth children – twins Mikaeel and Ashika, who have had no contact since with their Pakistani father.

    Among Miss Kular’s friends was Mohammed Omar Abdi, 25, who was killed in a gang gun battle in Edinburgh last year.

    Abdi, the son of a senior Muslim cleric, was often seen at Miss Kular’s family home and posed in pictures with her on Facebook.

    He was gunned down during a high-speed chase between two rival gangs in the early hours last May.

    Abdi was facing drugs charges at the time after officers found a ‘significant quantity’ of crack cocaine and cash during a raid. Six men face trial accused of killing him.

    Members of the public assist the police with the search in the Silverknowes area of Edinburgh for missing three-year-old boy Mikaeel Kular yesterday

    Miss Kular, in one online posting, says of herself: ‘Just me, myself and I... oh yeah, with a brood of five monsters, six if you count the man indoors!’

    In another, she adds: ‘Work full time which is a bit crapiola but it’s got to be done eh!’

    Miss Kular links to various groups promoting local parties and DJs on Facebook, and writes on Twitter that ‘boring is only a state of mind’.

    After a busy evening a couple of years ago, she posted: ‘I’m good, slightly hungover lol but nothing I can’t handle.’

    And in another online message, she said she was ‘still alive... just!’

  6. Ravi Singh from Khalsa Aid posted this status:

    "SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM INSIDE PRISON:
    Sangat Ji. I had a call today from one of the Singhs who along with several other Singhs is locked up for the Leicester incident.

    His asked me to ask you all to do an Ardas for them as they will appear in court on Friday for sentencing.

    Please DON'T make any comment about the case! Please feel free to leave a message of support.

    It was good to hear from the Singh , he told me that they are all in CHARDI KALAN !!"

    Can someone please shed some light on what is going on for the sangat who live outside of the UK and are unaware? Why are our Singhs in jail in the UK? Has something been happening at the protests?

  7. That's my experience, anyway could say a lot more but no point wasting my time talking about a place i would never go to again.

    That's funny because I was born and raised in UK and left there after 35 years.

    I have travelled the world over and there is no place better than the west pacific coast in my opinion.

    AND YES- I would NEVER live anywhere in the UK again unless I had to for some urgent reason.

    Just my two cents from someone who lives in neither Canada or the UK but has visited both countries...I travelled to the UK and Canada last year. I have to say, in all honesty....Canada was a <banned word filter activated> experience. I hated it and wouldn't go back. I stayed in Surrey and Vancouver. I love travelling but never have I been more excited to leave a place than when I was in Canada. Was there for the Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan....so much beadbi it was a joke. It made me cry.

    In terms of the UK, loved it! If there is one country I would move to it's the UK. Sangat is amazing there...I love the ekta...there are some internal problems but when it comes to the crunch you guys come together which is something I didn't see in Canada...everyone just competes with each other...the haalat of the Gurdwaras there is worse than any other western country when it comes to gurdwara comittees and it seems to be all about making money.

    Bhul chuk maaf, just what as an outside I noticed. But I honestly wouldn't go back to Canada if you paid me to and gave me a free ticket in first class.

  8. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Khalistani-terrorist-Bhullar-likely-to-be-hanged-secretly/articleshow/19549814.cms

    I am unsure as to what to make of this news...security has obviously been stepped up in Punjab as a number of reports are coming through confirming this. Police presence has been increased in cities like Jalandhar and Amritsar, and the Akali party has asked for army presence in punjab as per unconfirmed reports.

    Does this mean that the execution is likely to happen in the next few days? What can be done? Who can directly intervene? Organisations such as Amnesty International clearly hold no weight in this issue. I feel like the only avenue is pressure on the Punjab govt and Indian govt...whether that be via the Akal Takhat or other international govts...but we don't have much time. We really need to act fast...are the Sikhs in Punjab even aware of this? I have not seen any news about protests there as was in the case of Balwant Singh Rajoana?


  9. share this picture on maximum social media,amnesty international, mp's,lawmakers everyone in the world. Not only India and to an extent Germany violated extradition treaty among them. How can a person who is mentally and physically sick can be hanged?

    PLEASE give posts like the one above on the amnesty international facebook page a lot of attention and post on the page yourself too! If there's only one or two posts with no comments they will likely be overlooked!


  10. "BREAKING NEWS

    Professor Davinderpal Singh Bhullar has been taken from his hospital ward to Tihar Jail in preparation for his hanging. Support groups are preparing to protest outside the Indian Embassy in London and Birmingham. Sangat Channel will be presenting a special show at 9.30am.

  11. Terror left Sargun Ragi nowhere to hide - and she was killed by her estranged husband Avjit Singh

    ABANDONED by her family, alone, frightened and brutalised by her husband, Sargun Ragi put her faith in the justice system - and died for it.

    SARGUN RAGI WAS STARVED, RAPED AND BEATEN BY HER HUSBAND. SUPPLIED

    Murdered young wife betrayed

    While still the subject of a police investigation, theHerald Sun has been told she was stabbed to death by her estranged husband, Avjit Singh, who burnt her body before killing himself in the inferno.The vibrant 23-year-old, who had dreams of becoming a travel agent, arrived in Australia on May 24 and died last Thursday in the Kew home she had lived in for just three days.

    Her last weeks of life have been described as nothing short of hell on Earth.

    The Herald Sun successfully applied to the courts and won the right to reveal the contents of the intervention order that had been granted to try to protect her.

    How young wife was betrayed

    The intervention order, which was issued in the Broadmeadows Magistrates' Court on August 20, three days after her 23rd birthday, revealed police held grave concerns for Ms Ragi.

    "The affected family member is in fear for her life and believes her husband will kill her," the order stated. "Police have grave concerns for the welfare of (Ms Ragi) and believe she is vulnerable and in imminent danger."

    The document states Ms Ragi had been in an arranged marriage in India about a year ago but had lived in Australia for only a short while.

    Her unhappy marriage went from bad to worse when she formed a relationship with one of her husband's friends about two weeks before the intervention order was granted.

    Ms Ragi was subjected to a prolonged period of false imprisonment, rapes, beatings and starvation.

    Court documents show her husband treated Ms Ragi like an unwanted possession, locking her inside his Fawkner unit and giving her food only once a day.

    The 31-year-old taxi driver, who had lived in Australia for the past eight years, is claimed to have had many extra-marital affairs, but his wife's affair was seen as the ultimate betrayal.

    "(Ms Ragi) claims that she is beaten on a daily basis because of the affair. (She) also states that the respondent has sex with her daily and if she refuses to have sex with him he beats her," the intervention order stated.

    "The respondent has taken the AFM (affected family member's) phone off her ... has kept the AFM locked inside the unit where they are now living and will not let her leave the house and locks her in with a key."

    The document goes on to report Ms Ragi sustained injuries from the assaults on her legs and it was believed she had been the victim of a serious sexual assault.

    Ms Ragi was given a chance of freedom when she was discovered by a concerned landlord on August 16.

    Two good Samaritans, appalled by the terrified woman's plight, took her in, and gave her shelter in their home for seven weeks before finding the Kew home where she was tragically murdered by her husband, just three days after moving in.

    A source close to the case claimed Singh breached the intervention order many times in the weeks before her murder, and that both Ms Ragi and her friend notified police of the breaches.

    A Victoria Police spokeswoman said Ms Ragi contacted police three times to report she had received phone calls, believed to be from an international number, as well as calls from a private number where the caller hung up upon her answering, and text messages from a person known to Singh.

    "On one occasion she received a call directly from the male who was subject to the IVO," she said.

    "Police investigated each of these contacts; however, it could not be established at the time who had instigated the calls or messages.

    "These investigations were continuing."

    On September 24, 10 days before Ms Ragi was murdered, she appeared again at Broadmeadows Magistrates' Court where the matter was adjourned to December 4 for a contested hearing.

    Police confirmed Ms Ragi attended the Fawkner police station a day later to formally report the breaches and make a statement.

    "At no time did police receive reports that the woman was being followed or otherwise harassed and her primary concern was that the man stop calling her," the spokeswoman said.

    How Singh was able to track down his wife's new address in Kew so quickly, and how police reacted to her calls for help, are likely to be the subject of a coronial inquest. But for the few who took pity on Ms Ragi, the outcome will not offer any real peace.

    The source said: "The judicial system let this girl down badly. They didn't take the allegation of rape seriously ... they didn't take the situation of her being at risk seriously, they didn't take the numerous breaches of the intervention seriously.

    "I would have thought that once you'd breached an intervention you're immediately arrested ... it was continuous harassment from the day (she was rescued) to the day that she died.

    "It was total harassment and it was reported to the police on numerous occasions, and more particularly on the 24th of September."

    The source said it was not the first time the justice system had got it wrong, and it would not be the last.

    "I'm very disappointed in how police have handled this from start to finish," he said.

    "But what do you do?

    "How are we going to change this?"
