  1. He uses Punjabi culture and the Sikh religion when it suits him and serves his narrative in films but turns his back when his support is needed (Farmers protest).
  2. To be honest it's hardly surprising really, they're re-writing history to fit their own narrative, any "non-hindu" is pretty much done for in India unless they behave like sheep and follow their master, as for preserving history, they've never really done a good job of it, I look at old Gurdwara pictures from nearly 100 years ago and look at the state of them now, they really love their white marble over there.
  3. Hope he's changed his ways. http://juniorpip.blogspot.com/2012/09/so-scam-can-actually-be-useful-part-1.html
  4. This guy is an example of how stupid our Sikh community can be sometimes, he rented a electronic billboard and put up a "Never forget 1984" image while advertising his own business and our lot went mad, they loved it, they looked through the fact that he hasn't traded as an estate agent for years and the business was registered in his wife's name, and now the man's been caught out again, i have no personal axe to grind against the guy, i just think he's a bit of a <banned word filter activated>. I get a lot of hate in my family and friends circles because i call out apne who
  5. I saw this on Twitter, not just the light show but what they've actually done to the place, it's been reduced to nothing more than a glorified fun fair, Kim A. Wagner, who's a Professor of Global and Imperial History at Queen Mary (University of London) has extensive knowledge of jallian wala bhag has been posting about his disgust at what they've done extensively on twitter over the past few day's, his stuff is well worth reading.
  6. My parent's (and Grand-Parents before them) are devout Amritdhari Sikhs, they live by this rule, they don't eat leftover's from anybody but only share with other Amritdhari's, me and my siblings aren't Amritdhari but because we were bought up like this we live by the same rules. I've come across a few families who won't eat foot that isn't prepared by non-Amritdhari's, we have one in our extended family and their father wouldn't eat anything at his daughter's house after she got married because the son-in-laws family weren't amritdhari, my father's a pretty devout Sikh and even he found t
  7. I don't think it'll even get to Civil Court, if settled it will be done behind closed door's, there will probably be an apology hidden on their website or social media feeds that starts with something like "We do not stand for workplace bullying..." with no mention of racism anywhere, it's all been done before, it'll be classed as "workplace banter". The best thing to do in today's age is to hit twitter and start tagging them in publicly, to a few @"insert news company here" and @"insert local mp here" and you'll soo get some traction.
  8. Oh god, i agree, he's not an <banned word filter activated>, he knows exactly what he's doing it just the picture, who the hell take a picture holding both thumbs up anymore, it reminded me of this:
  9. Corbyn messed up the Labour party but at least he had the courage of his convictions, he stood his ground, Starmer's literally done nothing, forget walking the walk he's hot eve talked the talk and now they stand to loose seats to a Tory party who have ended up killing people during the pandemic because of indecision and corruption. Yeah, Sohal, he loves to run his mouth, he's not getting any love on twitter, he's managed to alienate the very people he's meant to be representing, the problem is there's a very high chance he may win, he's been targeting area's that are traditional Tory str
  10. The Tories have no real opposition at the moment, everyone know they're corrupt but Labour is at it's weakest ( a wet wipe is more useful than their current leader). Best of luck to her, I'd rather see someone like her win than Tory boy Jay Sohal.
  11. Yeah, that's in North Carolina. It make for sad but interesting reading: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/sep/20/north-carolina-hog-industry-pig-farms https://observer.com/2017/05/pig-waste-factory-farming-north-carolina/
  12. Sum's up India really, have a religious right wing lunatic in a position of power, get him to threaten healthcare professionals and then the blind sheep will follow just because he's wearing a tilak on his forehead and a religious gown, I'm thankful international media outlet's are picking up on this nonsense and reporting it, there's another news story i read of someone going on twitter and asking for oxygen for a relative and he's had a FIR issued against him.
  13. The Indian media do seem to be going in pretty hard this time (which is saying something, they always take the smallest news story and blow it out of proportion), saying that, when the pandemic hit here in the UK there was a certain narrative being driven by the news channels here (especially the BBC), i stopped watching the news after a few day's because it was affecting my mental health more than any pandemic could, if you're fed the same narrative again and again you start to believe it. India's in a bad state, they need to accept the help being given to them and put aside their huge e
  14. I wouldn't say it's a manufactured crisis as such, they allowed the Khumb mela to go ahead which had an attendance of nearly 5 million people as well a political rallies, all in the middle of a worldwide pandemic knowing fair well that they don't have the infrastructure nor the means to cope with another wave of Covid especially on the healthcare front, i do however agree that they are playing political games with this and it's all the poor that have paid the price but that's been the case in pretty much every country in the past year. For a country like India to run out of something like
  15. I personally think it represents the section just fine, only two of the guys in the image have trimmed beards, the other two look like they have wispy beards, what's boing to be next, only allow people on the forum that keep a dastaar and an un-shaven beard.
  16. I think we both are leading to the same conclusion, just worded and expressed differently. I don't necessarily agree with the fact that there is any particular pattern to women ending up with partners who treat them badly (i.e. fame, money, good looking etc.), sure, it's a factor but not all the time. In a lot of relationships things become about control, when that escalates it can sometimes become abusive, for men a lot of the time it's about controlling the narrative the wife believes, if he's having an affair or up to no good he will control the narrative so his wife is only party to t
  17. I know they hung a St Georges Cross by him during his Antim Darshan, no idea the reason behind it though, it probably was something as simple as him being British.
  18. I have no idea where to start to explain how completely and utterly wrong (and disrespectful to woman who suffer domestic abuse) this comment is, domestic abuse/violence has nothing to do with being "monay" or a "singh", It has to do with the person and asserting control over someone else. I know of at least 2 Amritdhari "singhs" in my wife's extended family that hit their wives, one was arrested for it. If you think that once you become a "singh" you do no wrong you might want to take a seat and have an objective look at the world, we're all human, taking the path of the Guru is just th
  19. Which is what made Sant Mani Singh Ji all the more special, he was bought up in the west but still overcame it's pull, India has it's own vice's and to be honest at the present time has more ways to corrupt the youth than anything I've seen in the west. Saying stuff like this is akin to saying that the only true Sikh's are those that are born in Punjab or have brown skin (I've heard people say both), it's a very narrow minded approach, If we look at how far Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj travelled it was all the was towards Europe, their message resonated far beyond the land of India and still
  20. He allegedly beat his wife to a pulp, what do you want, photo's (and it's not the first time he's been arrested, de's been done for drug offences in the past). And the famous singer that has a similar name, is he the one who got caught by his wife having an affair with a female singer from Punjab, his wife dumped him and then took him back because she realised that she enjoyed the comfortable life, oh, he was arrested for domestic abuse as well, just sayin.....
  21. I think Jay Sean's done alright for himself, he's carved out a niche and stuck to it. he moved on with his career whereas Juggy D stayed where he was. It's really disappointing that Juggy D hasn't been called out by other artist's, i suppose everyone has something to hide, but if it's true that he beat up his wife then he needs to be called out on it not what is likely to happen which is him making an apology video and people say "Oh, he's not that bad really, look, he's sorry for what he did" and then accept him back into the fold, the man need's to f**k right off.
  22. The guys always been a coke head, all you need to do is go around Southall and ask about him, he was allegedly offering his gold Kara as payment for "services", Rishi Rich and Jay Sean went there own ways but he stayed where he was riding on the coat tails of a few songs, i feel sorry for his kids in all of this. There's loads of crap like this in the music industry, we used to film wedding's and concerts in the past and the amount of singer's that would be doing line's before coming on stage was ridiculous, these were guys that had young fan's who looked up to them, some things never cha
  23. I don't know where you are based but in the UK they start at about £250 if your in the UK and go up to £700/800, for manufacturers i would probably go for Bina if you are a beginner. You could probably import one from India but the shipping would probably make it roughly the same price as just buying it over here.
  24. When my eldest aunt's dad passed away we found out a few year's later that her mum had kept his ashes in an urn by the fireplace for at least 2 years before we found out, my aunt and her mum saw nothing wrong with it, considering his funeral was a Sikh one we all found it a little strange to say the least, she had to be told the the Giani at their local gurdwara that they should really scatter the ashes as it isn't healthy for her mental health to have them there as a reminder all the time, my aunts mother saw nothing wrong with it, takes all sorts.
