    Is Donald Trump a good guy?

    Maybe he is good, maybe not.
  2. Why not ask this question before buying? Personally, I would not keep such a plant
  3. Does anyone have a contact email or telephone for Bhai Sahib? I am not on facebook, thanks
  4. Not good news. How will Gurdwaras take payment in future? I prefer to use cash where possible https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45483637 More than 250 free-to-use cash machines are disappearing a month as operators shut unprofitable ones, the network co-ordinator Link has said. There are 53,000 free machines in the UK - but the number is shrinking at a record rate as people use less cash.......... Link's ATM Footprint Report found that between the end of January and the start of July 2018, the number of free-to-use ATMs fell from 54,500 to 53,200.

    Basics of Sikhi - Latest

    Would be a good idea
  13. Don't worry, Khalsa will rise when the time comes. Islam and Christianity might boast numbers but their quality is not high. Why does Sikhism need to be spread by sword? We only take weapons when it is right/just. If we spread by the sword, we would have a lot of poor quality adherents.
  14. New Prime Minister of Pakistan. What does this mean for Pakistan? India? And will it have any direct/indirect impact for Sikhs?

    How to prevent Diabetes

    Look at the heath section of this site, you will easily find at least 1-2 threads there to help you to start with
  16. Should this section of the site be merged with ‘What’s Happening’ ? Since hardly any topics there gets good responses and also maybe half of threads on the whole should be there really.

    Boris Johnson

    What is his 'endgame'? Populist politics to attract right-wing votes? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45096519 Boris Johnson has stood by his remarks about the burka after the Conservative Party chairman told him to apologise. The former foreign secretary has been criticised for saying Muslim women wearing burkas "look like letter boxes" and comparing them to "bank robbers". PM Theresa May has backed calls for Mr Johnson to apologise, saying the remarks have "clearly caused offence". But a source close to Mr Johnson said he "won't be apologising", adding it was "ridiculous" to attack his views. "We must not fall into the trap of shutting down the debate on difficult issues," the source added. "We have to call it out. If we fail to speak up for liberal values then we are simply yielding ground to reactionaries and extremists." Johnson burka 'letter box' jibe sparks anger What's the difference between a hijab, niqab and burka? Mr Johnson's remarks, in a Daily Telegraph article, have provoked criticism from Muslim groups, some Tory MPs and opposition parties. In the article, Mr Johnson said full-face veils should not be banned but looked "ridiculous".

    Non Muslims Againsts Islam

    Really? I think number of converts is v low
  19. Is it Sikhs or is it Punjabi or even North Indian/Pakistani culture? I think a lot of Punjabi Pakistanis also do not like to see others within their own community succeed.
  20. A question for those who know more than me. Outside of India (leaving this out as I think mixed/disparate replies will be received) in which countries are Sikhs best known/highest awareness amongst the general population ? Some of the top ones will include Pakistan, Canada, UK, maybe Kenya (and to lesser extent Tanzania and Uganda). Others I think will include Singapore and Malaysia. After that, maybe Germany and France, and then some other European countries like Holland, Italy and Spain Other countries of significance (population) - I think most Americans, Chinese and Russians do not know much. Thoughts....

    Ranking countries, where would you live ?

    You've missed out a lot of countries. I am assuming these are only the countries you've visited/lived in? Why is Iran garbage? I have not visited most of these places, but I think you are making too many judgements about places you do not know much about
