  1. "We've got the highest levels of controls of security around the work that we do here," Gary Aitkenhead told me. "We would not be allowed to operate if we had lack of control that could result in anything leaving the four walls of our facility here. "There's no way that agent would have left. We have complete confidence that nothing could have come from here out into the wider world." The above comment from the head of the Porton Down laboratory (10 miles from the Sailsbury incident) sounds like an acknowledgement that they stock the Russian nerve agent used in the attack. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-43520534#
  2. Well that's the sticking point. It's slowly becoming a trend amongst amritdhari's which will lead to a 'holier than thou' attitude. You can see it starting off with the 'guilt trip' posts on social media and websites nowadays. Hats off to anyone who only consumes raw milk or is vegan, but don't use it as a platform to criticise those who choose not to.
  3. So are you saying they don't suffer? Can you apply the same 'choice' to the other forms of suffering listed in that post?
  4. If it's all about being ethical then why not reconsider using an Iphone made by overworked and exploited Chinese workers, the clothes that are made by impoverished people in Bangladesh who work in horrendous conditions, medicines or fragrances that are first tested on animals. The list goes on and on.. If the bottom line is about being ethical and ending suffering then why is it limited to cows? Why not apply those ethics to human suffering? Where do you draw the line in terms of being ethical or is it easier just avoiding dairy products and ignoring everything else which aids your lifestyle........ to the detriment of others??
  5. Nothing new, the whole 3ho franchise is run as a business. I remember looking to apply to go to one of their camps in New Mexico. They were charging for all sorts which is not something you would expect with an average Gurmat Camp.
  6. Sorry to throw a negative spanner in the works but lets not fool ourselves if we think the masses are rising up. There are an estimated 13 million Sikhs in Punjab and in whichever televised cover of any dharna you see in parts of Punjab, the numbers range from the low dozens to perhaps 10,000 at the most if there's a large gathering. Given the proportion of the Sikh population the numbers are still miniscule. In the Kotkapura khand loose estimates of 30,000 - 50,000 Sikh protesters were given, yet more realistic figures equate to between 6,000-10,000 being present. If hundreds of thousands or perhaps even millions of people were protesting then today you would see Presidents rule across Punjab and attempts by the Govt to appease the Sikhs. However the Govt knows that we are a minority within a minority, and in a country which practices vote bank politics, we Sikhs struggle to be heard.
  7. Don't move back in and maybe consider moving on with your life if he's not willing to change.
  8. Just to add to this discussion.. This is a false news report. The 150,000 figure relates to the annual intake of conscripts. Putin won't send in a huge conventional army for fear of getting bogged down in a Soviet Afghanistan style war. Russia is only intervening because Iranian General Suleimani travelled to Moscow about two months ago and informed the Russians that Iran could no longer prop up a faltering Assad regime and Russian military strength was needed in the campaign. So they planned for Russian 'shock and awe' style bombing of rebel positions followed by joint Syrian-Iranian-Hizbollah ground offensives to regain lost territory and consolidate Assads' hold onto power. If you think that only last month ISIS was within 25 miles of the vital M5 highway connecting Damascus to the North West Allawite strongholds, the 'army of conquest' rebels were within reach of the coastal city of Latakia and the Assad regime was crumbling. Now Russia along with Iran hopes to turn that around. In regards to why Russia seems so confident and assertive, NATO and the US underestimate Russia on the grounds that they are far superior to Russia in terms of conventional fighting forces. However over the last few decades, both Russia and China have invested heavily in asymmetrical weaponry such as hypersonic anti-ship missiles, EMP weapons, electronic jamming, sophisticated cyber hacking, satellite killers........ weapons generally designed to give them the edge over the US and its allies. What we see now are two superpower alliances on a collision course with each other as the seeds of WW3 continue to be sown.
  9. Every time the Jathedar does something stupid, there's usually a brief uproar followed by a false sense of normality in which Gurbachan is made to play an important part in all matters Panthic. We tend to have short memories and brush things under the carpet too easily. Gurbachan and the other jathedars have crossed the line more than once yet the sangat continue to invite them and give them that legitimacy, which in turn allows them to continue making stupid decisions which have far reaching consequences. Maybe it's time to draw a line and stop giving them pedestals. Maybe that will end this continuous cycle and contribute to a new Singh Sabha style movement to clean our own house out.
  10. Didn't Sri Nagar wale also praise Badal last year in the UK and then apologise for it?
  11. Furthermore if you ever ask a scholar as to why there are verses in the Quran which refer to the subjucation and killing of non-believers, then he will probably say that those passages relating to when Muhammed and his followers were being attacked by Quraysh and other tribes. Yet the question from that arises as to whether the Quran is meant to be a divine revelation or a history book?
  12. I've read Hollands book. In it he said that there are actually no real sources regarding the Quran and the Ka'aba until 100-200 years after the passing of Muhammed. Holland said that the history during the 'golden age' of Islam in reference the successive Caliphates which immediately followed Muhammed are quite vague. Furthermore he also said that an early scholar called Al-Bukhari during the 8th century compiled the 7000 odd Hadiths from around 200,000 possible scripts His analysis implies that early Islamic history and their idea of authoritative scripts and history could have been doctored and influenced to present the mainstream version of Islam we see today. Even if we follow the 'official' version of Islam preached by their scholars, that Muhammed received the revelation which he dictated to his followers who then wrote the words on various parchments, which was then later compiled into the Quran during the rule of the third Caliph, and that Al-Bukhari found the 7500 authentic Hadiths out of 200,000 - then even the common man will tell you that there is plenty room for error.
  13. We have no nation, no base, no Raaj. Is it any surprise that the Sikh quam is in decline? Raj bina neh Dharam chale hain Dharam bina sab dale male hain
  14. Not accusing/defending NKJ here, but the 'no further action' by CPS/Police doesn't prove that it did not happen, but rather that there is 'no realistic prospect of a conviction' due to a conflict of evidence from both sides. To establish that someone is guilty under British law, the burden of proof is beyond all reasonable doubt. Gavin accused Harinder of sexual assault and there were no witnesses on Gavin's behalf, the best recourse for Harinder's solicitor would have been to gather as many defence witnesses as possible by getting the police to take statements from Harinders' friends present in the room when it occurred. The statements, albeit from his friends would have countered the corroborative evidence of audio recordings and created a reasonable doubt, hence no criminal charge on Harinder. This appears to be what transpired here which is why the Police/CPS seem to have dropped the case. However there are a number of unanswered questions from the voice recordings (ie mouth to mouth simran, testing kaam) which need to be addressed by the Panj Piyaare and Harinder, so that any issues can be ironed out. What goes on in the jatha shouldn't necessarily be kept quiet in the jatha. Again not taking sides but pointing out the obvious..
