  1. I've watched a few of Pal's videos. I was absolutely shocked that this stuff is so prevelent over there. He went after the Gujjar 'deras' (they practice this to a horrific level by actually handicapping/giving brain injury to kids and then shifting them around their camps' network) but backed off as of late because of the hostility from them. There are gut-wrenching videos of elders kept in captivity at home; migrant laboureres (being the most prevelant class); mentally handicapped locals...and the list goes on. If this stuff happens in Punjab, just imagine the scale of it across India. Probably worse is pakistan I imagine. The weakest are exploited to the max over there.
  2. Same with Canada. Ajit Sandhu https://www.sikh24.com/2015/12/11/khalra-killer-ssp-ajit-sandhu-is-alive-in-canada-hints-ex-dgp-sashi-kant/ is rumoured to be living in canada (if still alive). Likely to be plenty of others.
  3. Thanks for sharing the artwork @dallysingh101 It's fascinating to see how the dress of women has evolved, and contrasts with popular perceptions in present day jathas. Honest engagement with history really helps to chart the future.
  4. This is a big victory for the Panth, not so much electorally, but more so as the flag of defiance has been planted once more inside India's Parliament. I truly believe Guru Maharaj works in ways we can’t understand. Nobody thought entertainers would be leading a rejuvenation in Panthic politics, but it happened! First Deep Sidhu and then Subhdeep Sidhu [Mossewala], both contributed in ways perhaps even they were unaware of at the time. The youth of the Panth is coming together and coming back to Guru’s Charn. Even though there are multitude issues with structure and hammering-out of policy, this victory is the anchor the youth badly needed. Now they have a chance to build back true Panthic politics and get rid of the latest cancer in the form of Kejriwal/Raghav chadda et al. Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji maharaj. Please guide your Panth into the future.
  5. There is bound to be plenty of chaos in the near future of India. I don't think the majority of our kaum is going to get to a more matured civilizational point anytime soon. We will have to work with what little we can muster up. It's starting to hit the fan over there I'm sensing. Panic is brewing for what is to come.
  6. Some positive winds of change. Some highlights: Call made for Sikhs to start up firing ranges and get acquisition and training in firearms. Pinds need to halt the contruction of churches and mosques Parchariks and panthic sampardais need to leave their comfort zones and restart parchar in pinds in the face of aggressive christian campaigns jawarhar lal nehru was blamed for betrayal and denial of our raaj Sikhs have a right to seek raaj And some other points were made. Jathedaar also pointed out that the 'caging in' of sangat this year by heavy deployment of security forces is unprecedented in recent times and will not go unnoticed. All in all, this is positive news that the decimation of Badal Dal has prompted a pivot in favor of facing some real issues. The SGPC just a few years back was flat out rejecting that whole scale conversions were turning Gurdaspur and all of border areas into Christian strongholds. Im glad they have summoned enough courage to include mushrooming mosques in the list.
  7. The Abohar Fazilka corner in south-west punjab has a large hindu population, with "haryanvi" jaats and other castes like the bishnois, who ended up on our side after Punjab was split into three states. There are gangs and crime syndicates operating in the NCR region, haryana, rajasthan and it stretches into punjab thanks to this lawarence bishnoi guy.
  8. Sad to see a youth taken in his prime like this. The gang violence is spinning out of control over there. Singers, actors, lower end politicians get extorted and have to choose sides to survive. This hit is part of the wider conflict going on between the Lawrence Bishnoi/ Goldy Brar and Bambiha gangs.
  9. The call to arms was prior to the government scaling back security. It was more like petty politics by AAP given that the Jathedar had only 4 security men to begin with. In comparison, Kejriwal gets 90 Punjab Police Personnel (even though he resides in Delhi) and Raghav Chada gets 50. Also, these are not temporary scale backs. Bhagwant Mann has in fact requested and received 100 companies of the Indo-Tibetan Border Patrol force to "keep the peace". Interestingly, the Jathedaar's call was made after this police build-up in the state.
  10. The old man states that it was his father, kulwant singh, son of Hira Singh, that converted. Kulwant Singh was married to Khem Singh Bedi's granddaughter. It's interesting how he describes the process. His father had travelled to Iran and came under Islamic influence during his extended stay. Came back and started dining with muslims. Sikhs got suspicious and started harassing him to quit his islamic leaning. Kulwant singh took off with his wife, from one village to the next, with sikhs in pursuit, until he landed in a more powerful caste muslim village, where he settled in safety and cut his hair. The wife had little choice left I suppose and was renamed Zainab Bibi. The old man states that he recalls his mother as being mentally deranged during his childhood due to the trauma of separation from her whole extended family members. Even he seems to realize what an <banned word filter activated> decision his father made to convert as they lived in poverty afterwards, coming from powerful clans that owned thousands of acres of lands. At one point, the old man says his dad used to say " we come from a kaum that is the sardar of all kaums" (referring to his own Sikh origins). I'm sure kulwant singh regretted his decision, especially since 47' buried all possibility of reversal.
  11. It's about time they pivot back to the Panth, even if out of compulsion. Sadly though, many of our brethren back home will side with AAP and Kejriwals puppet, Bhagwant Mann, and actually oppose this message by pinning it as a survival attempt by Badal through proxy. Sitting from afar, it just goes to show what a convoluted mess we have back home.
  12. I think we have no option but to accept [which we should, as Sikhs] and come to terms with the worldview of Guru Maharaj, based off of what we can gather from both Gurbani sources and other historical sources like rehitnamay etc. It’s the only way we can keep our sense of sanity and integrity in the chaotic middle gray space we find ourselves in, wedged in between competing megalithic civilizations. Our doctrines and ideals can’t be reformulated to suit the current whims of the people they serve because of the relative proximity to evidence our emergence timeline presents. Regarding your point about our parcharks (post-partition), I agree with you. I have also wondered the same listening to the visiting gyanis. I doubt the schools they learned from had any serious Arabic/Isalmic studies programs, lol. Probably, they had rudimentary commentaries akin to those high-school level world religion books. I think most paracharks are genuinely completely in the dark about the darkside of Islam. Add to that the ambiguity of sarbat da bhala without the asterisk. I won’t get into Gurbani references in this post (I will say, for now, there is no mention of Mmd or references to islamic /semetic stories and characters, save the odd one I may have missed to spot), but what is interesting is the rehitnamas and other 18th century and 19th century literature. It’s quite blunt in regards to Islam. Even our Four Kurehits appear more like a direct condemnation of Islamic customs, ie hooka hajamat halalo haram. The complete separation of food, habitation, and family from muslims that our elders practiced right upto partition speaks volumes. I think we have enough material to formulate a more appropriate approach to Islam and Muslims that won’t involve us holding umbrellas over them and renovating back old mosques. These next gen parcharks have info so readily available on youtbue about the darkness in Islam, it just needs to be understood and disseminated in Punjabi now.
  13. There is a sakhi is sooraj prakash about Dasmesh Pita giving an important life lesson to the Khalsa. They get sweet rice prepared in large vats and offered to local dogs, who end up scattering the rice and mauling each other. Process repeated with deer and this time the animals gently circle around the vats and peacefully share the meal. Up to us how we want to treat each other and the resources of the Panth.
