  1. GuruFateh. On the 25th Anniversary of Indira Gandhi's assassination, I think it's worthwhile to have an intelligent discussion on her, Operation Bluestar and the subsequent aftermath. After her assassination, it was reported that Sikh's in the UK were celebrating her death by giving out ladoo's etc. This did happen because family members were at the Smethwick Gurudwara (Bham) and reported this as fact. Now, we as Sikhs have to look at the faults done by our own kaum. This is totally against the principles of Sikhi. Didn't Bhai Kanaiya give water to the enemy? Didn't Sikhs report him to Guru

  3. Gurufateh. I was wondering whether the sangat knew what the new building under construction at the gurudwara will be used for? Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  4. The previous poster is right. Only take supplements if you are going to hit the gym hard. I have been training with these supplements for a few years and have gone upto 230lbs in weight. You have to work hard or you will just bulk up. I am lean muscle because I train 5 times a week (sometimes 6) and have monster workouts as I have always been interested in bodybuilding. Also, in order to stay cut and ripped, I do 30-50 minutes of cardio a day as well. Hope this helps any Singh's who want to start training etc.
  5. GuruFateh! Just a quick question to all my fellow bodybuilding Sikh's out there. What supplements do you use as part of your training program? I have been using the following: Cyclone by Maximuscle 100% Whey Protein by USN Thermobol by Maximuscle I have been using these for a long time and have made excellent gains. Would just like to know what others use etc.
  6. One point which the 'Nihung' raised, I would like the sangat's views on it. He asked what are the sangat's views on sex within a marriage where there is no intention for reproduction. Wouldn't this be classed as kaam because you are lusting after your wife with no intention of having a child. I would like to hear the sangat's view on this.
  7. The only reason chamaar call Bhagat Ravidass, Guru Ravidass is because this gives them some claim to fame and also gives them some stupid ammunition to further segregate thmselves from Sikhi. You say the chamaar community would still be under the rule of Brahmins today had it not been for Bhagat Ravidass's efforts. Bhagat Ravidass did fight extensively for the rights of chamaar and underwent punishment as a result of this but to say that chamaar would still be under the rule of brahmins (had it not been for Bhagat Ravidass) is a big insult (in my eyes) to Dasmesh Pita Guru Gobind Singh who bl
  8. This is typical Ravidassia mentality and before you try and heckle me for this, just thought I'd let you know that I am from the 'Chammar' community, but I am one who has woken from the falsehood stated by this community and have embraced Sikhi fully. Bhagat Ravidass did make some powerful statements in his bani but so too did the other bhagats. Why then I ask you, is that none of these Bhagats have been elevated to 'Guru' status by their respective communities and only in Ravidassia gurudwara's will you find that they have (as I mentioned before about Union Row, Bham)? Moving onto your fin
  9. What this person is saying is typical propaganda from the Ravidassia community that everyone mentioned in the Guru Granth Sahib is a Guru hence the reason why at the Guru Ravidass Bhawan on Union Row (off Soho Rd, Birmingham) has pictures of most of the bhagats in the Darbar Sahib with the labels of Guru Sheikh Farid, Guru Namdev etc. Lets take a detailed look. Guru Nanak was the only person to have met with Waheguru when he went missing for three days. Guru Nanak was given the Gian by Waheguru to start the path of Sikhi. This therefore makes Guru Nanak, the first Guru. How can any of the Bha
  10. What's people's opinion on people who have had tattoos done before they got into Sikhi? I'll be honest, I have had a number of tattoos done BEFORE I found the way of Sikhi so what are your view on this?
  11. This is me speaking as a 'Ravidassia'. You say that sikhs in the modern world have not accepted Ravidassia to be Sikhs. Why should they when the large majority of Ravidassia still seem to be intent on classing themselves as something different i.e. that they are not Sikh's. I know this to be fact because I have experienced it first hand. All my family, except my brother and me (including my extended family) believe that they are not Sikhs but somewhere in between Sikhi and Hinduism. How can you be half and half I ask? Ravidassia are intent of following both practices of Sikh's and Hindus. Ther
  12. Sikhism is for whole of mankind be it muslims, christians , hindus , jains or buddhist. What to talk of Chamars who form the back bone of sikhism. Sikhi is a fusion religion of sort that is it makes people see the underlying unity in all the home sapiens. The chamars are having a complex due to there poor will to advertize themselves way other sikhs groups do . I had suggest that they to start makiig songs / picture / soldiers / like " Putt chamra de " version and rest we all Gursikhs will stand by your side and sing with you and all of us will be damned proud of it
  13. GuruFateh! I was born into a 'Chamaar' family and was brought up in the fashion of believing that Bhagat Ravidass was Guru Ravidass. However, as I got older, I started to delve into religion with my own eyes and learn things for myself and not just what my parents, family and chamaar kom were saying. As I started going into the fold of Sikhi, I realised that a lot of what I had been told whilst growing up was against the teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib. Chammar have taken a more of a political stance where they do not know much about Bhagat Ravidass's bani but add their own rubbish and bel
  14. Satnaam Sri Waheguru. Bole So Nihaal! Sat Sri Akal! Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ji Fateh!
  15. GuruFateh! The muslim veil is open to debate within Islam because muslim leaders can not decide fully if they have to wear a Hajab (covering the head, similar to a chunni) or wear a Niqab (full face veil with eye slits). However, after reading Quoran quotes, I think that muslim women are told to wear the Hajab. Regarding Sikhi, turbans are a must because our 10th Father Guru Gobind Singh made it compulsory. Also the 5 kakkars are compulsory for an Amritdhari so they can not be taken off regardless of the situation. In my opinion, that Christian woman suing British Airways regarding her deci
  16. GuruFateh! To download this film, go to www.khalsa.tv and you will find it. This is an excellent film and I encourage everyone to watch it. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  17. Sat Sri Akal! What's wrong with people today? Don't they know their own history. Guru Gobind Singh made it compulsory that Sikh's have to wear a dastaar. If these Christians can show me where Jesus Christ himself said that christians must wear the cross on a chain, then I will support the christioans fully! Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  18. Always has to be one fool that has to make stupid comments about other faiths! Some people never learn. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  19. GuruFateh! Veer, don't worry about it. When I started to keep my dhaari, the large majority of comments were from my family saying things like, 'what's going on here' 'do you need a razor' 'terrorist' etc. I laughed it off because I was proud of my beard and was in full agreement with the Guru's teachings. Their comments did not bother me as I knew that I was on the right path. Bottom line is that people make these comments because they are jealous. They are jealous because they haven't got that love for the Guru's teachings and jealous cos they haven't got the guts to stand out from the cro
  20. I thought that this 'one God' phenomenon was restricted to Judaism/Christianity&Islam. But it seems to me that sikhism too has rejected all other options outright ! This is strictly my personal opinion, but recently I have reached certain disturbing conclusions about this unitary God because most of the prophets of the Abrahamic religions as well as Sikhism also now as I learn have met extremely violent and tragic ends. As someone said on the net, even Shakazulu (king of Zulu tribe) of South Africa who was a very brave warrior and also believed in this 'one God' met with a very violent e
  21. GuruFateh! Thank you Bhenji for your honesty. The Guru's did say to only seek the company of good sangat. Bad sangat can have a negative effect on anyone and can further influence your beliefs. Our beliefs and way of life should be in strict accordance with the teachings of the Guru's. Any question posed by anyone can be answered by Gurbani. Moving away from the khalistan hatred issue, we see many people openly showing hatred to each other within the Panth. Gurudwara's have names which include these 'so-called' castes in them. People openly say hurtful things such as 'I'm not going to that g
  22. Isn't it "mann jeete jag jeet" ? Sorry Paji! Was in a bit of a rush when I typed that out. Please accept my apologies. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  23. Sat Sri Akal! I do not wish to highlight only the khalistani's. I'm just giving an example. You have highlighted other areas that need sorting out. It is no point saying that those who hate etc are not Sikh's. As I stated in my second post, Sikh's are learners and everyone is at different steps with regard to Sikhi. These people who are hating are lost or straying off the true path. It is our duty to educate them and make them aware of what they are doing is wrong. I think it is pathetic to simply brush it unde the carpet and say that they are not Sikh's and somewhat seek the easy way out. If
  24. GuruFateh! Having hatred will turn your own people against you. Many times I have heard and discussed with fellow singh's about the BlueStar aftermath and a lot of them hate certain elements of it. The proper soormeh were the likes of Shaheeds Jarnail Singh Bhindranwala, Sukhdev Singh Babbar, Baba Gurbachan Singh Manochal and countless others. But there was the other parties of people who infused with pure and simple hatred against India and Hindu's would have committed atrocities that are wrong. Regardless of the situation (Innocent sikh's were killed before and after 1984) killing innocent
  25. GuruFateh! Everywhere I look (personal experience, SikhSangat etc) I see a great deal of hatred. Hatred towards Hindu's (whom most people just take the mickey out of), hatred towards India and most importantly hatred towards each other within our Panth. People in our own panth openly criticise each other in ways that were forbidden by the Guru's. We as Sikh's are learners and disciples of the Guru. We are all at different stages with regard to Sikhi so no-one has the right to criticise another by putting them down. It is our job to help our brothers and sisters and not put people down or eng
