  2. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ Thank you for your kind words. This has all been due to Waheguru's Kirpa. Thank you for correcting the link. The research of Gurdwaras has been really good. One small example, imagine discovering a Gurdwara (in Punjab) and finding that it contains the 'Chola' that Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji wore when being released from Gwalior with 52 Rajas (which includes the 'Kalian'). The Gurdwara is only 4km from Gurdwara Rara Sahib.
  3. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ Sangat Ji, For the benefit of the Sangat we have provided one of the largest and most comprehensive archives on Historic Sikh Gurdwaras. The main idea behind the Historic Sikh Gurdwara section is to raise awareness and provide information about the historic gurdwaras, locations and stories associated with the Sikh Guru's (Guru Sahibhan) and other historic Sikhs (during the period of the Sikh Guru's). There are maps, route planners and lots of pictures. http://www.discoversikhism.com/sikh_gurdwaras/historic_sikh_gurdwaras.html

The national airline of the India operates several flights every day to various destinations in North America. SFJ claims that it called for boycott of Air India to highlight the dictatorial action of Modi Government to block the democratic campaign of SFJ to hold referendum in the state of Punjab. To adversely affect the usage of Air India by the

  10. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ ਸ੍ਰੀਗੁਰੂਗ੍ਰੰਥਸਾਹਿਬਜੀ - ਲੜੀਵਾਰਸੈਂਚੀਆਂ (SriGuruGranthSahibJi - LarivaarSainchiyan) Larivaar is where Gurbani is written in continuous form as shown above (ie. with no breaks in between the words of Gurbani). This form of writing was used by the Guru Ji's and other historical Sikhs. DiscoverSikhism.com is making online Larivaar Sainchiyan available for the Sangat to use. We hope the Sainchiyan will benefit all those wanting to learn and use Larivaar Gurbani as Guru Ji’s intended. In keeping maximum Satkar, we have kept the Gurbani ang’s with no other w
  11. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ Correction - David Cameron was NOT taken to a side room. The gurdwara masands allowed the speech to take place in the main darbar (as shown on Akaal TV). We have no idea if Gurbani or Path was interrupted to make way for the speeches.
  12. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ The world is seeing India for what it really is. A terrorist State that does not recognize democracy, human rights or equality.
  13. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ There is often a big 'tumasha' when dignitaries visit a Gurdwara. Recently we have been noticing that those surrounding the dignitaries have a severe lack of respect in the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ie. the two women sitting near Mrs Cameron and when Badal and Co refused to matha tek during Modi's visiti to Sri Harmandir Sahib. Disrespectful behavior undoes the good nature of the visit. Otherwise, despite Conservative Pary history with 1984, it seems this visit was better than that of Labour leader Ed Milband. Veerji, the post heading is be

The Prime Minister, wore an orange patka, and Mrs Cameron, a blue salwar kameez. The Camerons removed their shoes, queued up to kneel, offer coins and bow before Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

  15. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ Very true, however we understand John McDonnell is a long standing friend of the Sikh Sangat and fully deserves the Sikh vote. We also understand others like MP Tom Watson (who helped uncover covert British military involvement in 1984), MP Fabian Hamilton (Chair of the All Party Group for British Sikhs) who slammed Genocide denial last year and MP Pat McFadden have also supported Sikhs over a number of years, more so than other 'punjabi'/ 'asian' politicians. And yes, all of these people are UK Labour politicians. We take little interest in politicia
  16. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ UK MP John McDonnell says Sikh Genocide of 1984 was similar to the Jewish Genocide in Germany by Adolf Hilter London: On the eve of the premier of upcoming movie ‘Patta Patta Singhan da Vairi’ on April 12, UK MP John McDonnell said that the Sikhs were subjected to genocide in 1984 by the Indian state just like the Nazi regime of Hitler subjected Jews to genocide. Talking about the Sikh Genocide of November 1984, MP John McDonnell said that this was sequel of the genocide of the Jews in Germany by Adolf Hitler. File photo - MP John McDonnell While a

  18. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖਾਲਸਾ॥ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫਤਿਹ॥ We have been following the state torture and illegal detention of Bhai Ravinder Jeet Singh. The USA should take note, this is how India respects American citizens. Perhaps, Bhai Ravinder Jeet Singh is the wrong color to warrant USA help, nevertheless Bhai Sahib is a few shades fairer than President Obama.

Through the centuries, Sik

Sikh jatha was reportedly heading for the site Gurdwara Gian Godari Sahib to free it from those who have illegally encroached upon the Gurdwara.

According to public documents released by the California Department of Education, non-Sikh advocacy organizations are proposing to rewrite Sikh history in the California state curriculum standards. “As a part of our campaign in California to ensure that our history is preserved, we are calling on every Sikh in the United States to join us by signing this petition.

At that time a senior member of the Gujrat Intelligence Bureau Mr. Sanjiv Bhatt filed an affidavit that CM Modi told all authorities to allow the Hindu community to vent out their anger at the Muslim population.

The decision to seek the granthi’s resignation was taken by the SGPC executive at a recent meeting held in Chandigarh and it was conveyed to him on Thursday, who subsequently put in his papers. The decision to seek the granthi’s resignation was taken after he was “found absent from his duty” on the morning of April 5.
