  1. I understand what you say, but you are confusing some towns with counties. in response to you and even my own question, a lot of who knows Sikhs depends on education and wealth. Yes, where there are Sikhs in cities most people know them, but in affluent areas, e.g parts of some of the places you’ve mentioned I think most people will know Sikhs.
  2. Sad to see some people live in a completely different world where equality and human rights not a reality
  3. 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....
  4. What an interesting post/reply. Thank you!!!
  5. Sorry if I offended you by not posting the link, but I am sure you could have easily found it through google. i just forgot https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44798829
  6. Very interesting story for many reasons . I wonder if all involved are of Afghan Pathan origin?
  7. Everything in general is small in the UK compared with N. America
  8. Which vitamins do you recommend? I.e. which ones, apart from the obvious Vitamin D would you say most of us need to take?
  9. I've been busy, but done a quick google search which shows (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_crime_in_the_United_Kingdom#Race_and_crime_in_London): Figures from the Office for National Statistics showed that in 2007 an estimated 10.6 percent of London's population of 7,556,900 were black.[25] Evidence shows that the black population in London boroughs increases with the level of deprivation, and that the level of crime also increases with deprivation, such that "It is clear that ethnicity, deprivation, victimisation and offending are closely and intricately inter-related".[26] In June 2010, through a Freedom of Information Act request, The Sunday Telegraph obtained statistics on accusations of crime broken down by race from the Metropolitan Police Service.[n 2] The figures showed that the majority of males who were accused of violent crimes in 2009–10 were black. Of the recorded 18,091 such accusations against males, 54 percent accused of street crimes were black; for robbery, 59 percent; and for gun crimes, 67 percent.[27] Robbery, drug use, and gang violence have been associated with black people since the 1960s.[28] In the 1980s and 1990s, the police associated robbery with black people. In 1995, the Metropolitan Police commissioner Paul Condon said that the majority of robberies in London were committed by black people.[29] Street crimes include muggings, assault with intent to rob, and snatching property. Black males accounted for 29 percent of the male victims of gun crime and 24 percent of the male victims of knife crime.[27] On sex offences, black men made up 32 per cent of male suspects. Similar statistics were recorded for females. On knife crime, 45 percent of suspected female perpetrators were black; for gun crime, 58 percent; and for robberies, 52 percent.[30]
  10. Hopefully a good thing, but if difficult times are ahead with racism etc, will make it easier for Sikhs to be singled out from other South Asians. So, I am slightly sceptical
  11. Which vitamins? B12 and vitamin D are the only common ones checked by doctors
  12. B12 and vitamin D and thyroid are only Rare causes for depression. >99% is psycho-social
  13. It’s very interesting what you write about the Chinese. I would like to know more these divisions within China and the diaspora Chinese communities.
  14. Nah, this aliens coming to Earth thing is a myth.
  15. Sau Sakhi, I guess: "Sikh Predictions" is an enchanting book of prophecies made hundreds of years ago to predict the forthcoming events that are going to take place in AD 1999 and after throughout the world. Wherever Guru Nanak went during his Missionary journeys, all those areas will form part of the Khalsa Kingdom. The Khalsa is going to rule for several centuries and all the blessed Sikhs and saints have already taken birth for this. For the Sikhs the interest is in the religious background, but for the others, it revolves around its historic significance and resemblance with other world-predictions.
  16. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sikh-Predictions-Based-Relevant-Texts/dp/8121508479/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1532245954&sr=1-6&keywords=sikh Anyone read this? I would be buy it if it is good, so please advise if you have read it....
  17. Yes, true. Btw, were Jews also supportive of each other so much, or did the difficult times of the world wars bind them closer together
  18. Yes, agreed. Propaganda. And she has no right to use Kaur in her name
  19. The referee/// spoiled the World Cup Final today. How that was given as a penalty, I cannot understand. It ruined the dynamics of the game, and basically made Croatia more of underdog than when the match started.
  20. Where have you been? i am enjoying your posts, but fully disagree that we should name children after Gurus/their close family. But reasonable to name kids after Shaheeds
  21. What do you think the Russian and Chinese view on Islam is? i doubt they would want to be taken over
  22. Collapse imminent? News to me. What you talking about?
