  1. From the book Sikhs of the Punjab written by R. E. Parry in 1921. "No one is a Sikh by virtue of birth" About Sikh women Diet of Sikhs Betrothal and marriage Tradition of "Muklawa"
  2. But unlike the brightly-coloured Lamborghinis, the Rolls-Royce was black. It was a Black Badge edition, which is a more sporty version, designed with enhanced torque, power and control. The four men later posed in front of the purple Aventador, looking proud of the fact that they had just led such a lavish pre-wedding procession. The fleet eventually arrived at the destination. They were parked outside the destination, showcasing their grandeur. Expensive cars are a common feature within modern Asian weddings. Several are hired by family members and are driven in a convoy to the wedding as a way of portraying luxury. This is one example which shows that no expense is spared to ensure that a wedding is a memorable, yet flamboyant event. When it comes to South Asian weddings, competitiveness between families is always a huge thing. Families are always looking to have a bigger wedding than the last person. What's the point of these cars in big Asian weddings? They're probably rented so it's a bit weird showing off something you don't even own.
  3. Meanwhile Sikhs "Come To Punjab, Sardars Will Protect You": Singer Rabbi Shergill To Bilkis Bano Updated: August 22, 2022 7:10 pm IST https://www.ndtv.com/india-news/rabbi-shergill-to-bilkis-bano-come-to-punjab-sardars-will-protect-you-3276292
  4. Abducted girls are definitely given something or really brainwashed before making the video. You can note that in many cases and in the above video I linked. It's a recurring pattern, they can't all be consensual.
  5. Their women also play an equal role in this. They're the ones who usually brainwash the vulnerable girl.
  6. Pakistan: Sikhs in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa protest as Islamists forcibly convert a female Sikh teacher and perform her nikaah On Sunday, her family members knew about the forced marriage and subsequent conversion. The family reached the police station where nobody cared to register their complaint. In another incident of flouting human rights in Pakistan, a female Sikh teacher was forcibly converted by Islamists in Peer Baba of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province of Pakistan on Saturday 20th August 2022. The Sikhs in the KPK province are protesting against this forced conversion. A video of the protests appeared on Twitter on Sunday, 21st August 2022, in which Sikhs can be seen protesting and raising various slogans outside a police station in Pakistan. According to a report by Aaj Tak, a young female teacher from the Sikh community was allegedly kidnapped on Saturday, and on the next day, her family was informed that the young girl is now married to a Muslim person. There is deep resentment in the Sikh community due to this incident. Dina Kaur, a Sikh teacher was kidnapped on Saturday. On Sunday, her family members knew about the forced marriage and subsequent conversion. The family reached the police station where nobody cared to register their complaint. According to the family members, the local police have not registered any FIR and have asked the Sikhs to be silent on this issue. BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa has expressed concern over this incident. Tagging the government of Pakistan in his tweet, Sirsa said, “How can a family silently watch its daughters being forcibly converted and emotionally exploited? This is against basic human rights and we stand in support of the Sikh brothers of Pakistan. I urge India’s External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar Ji to intervene in this matter.” He added, “I urge the External Affairs Minister to hold talks on the issue of minority Sikhs in Pakistan. Pakistan’s Prime Minister’s Office is also not paying attention to this. Our earlier tweets on the safety of Sikhs in Pakistan have been ignored.” Persecution of Sikhs in Pakistan Earlier in May 2022, two Sikhs were killed in Peshawar, Pakistan. In that case, a strong protest was lodged by India. At that time, the spokesperson of the Indian Government said, “We have seen reports of the brutal killing of two Sikh traders by unidentified armed men in Peshawar. Sadly, this is not the first incident. Even before this, there have been attacks on Sikhs, a minority community in Pakistan.” https://www.opindia.com/2022/08/pakistan-sikhs-protest-islamists-forcibly-convert-teacher/
  7. Also, marriages in Panjab were quite simple too until NRI's (first in Doaba area) started the extravagance culture. This gradually caught on in other areas and now marriages leave people bankrupt in Panjab! I also heard some richer people in Panjab are starting to conduct funeral rituals in big venues.(traditionally, a sweet food was made at home and distributed if someone died, now some people have taken this to party venues)
  8. Our elders discouraged Bhangra too, I never saw them partaking in it. They thought very poorly of Bhangra-classes and people who took part in it. Personally, weddings started getting out of hand in the past decade for us due to people imitating big fat movie-type parties with performances. Prior to that everything was more simple, including clothing/appearances and venues. I do see Gidha done but its private in female-only events. Even today, sometimes men and women sit seperate at parties. I've noticed Panjabis/Sikhs who migrated from west Panjab and Doabi's are more likely to be involved in Bhangra activities compared to others. Which might explain your experiences in the UK surrounding Bhangra.
  9. Origins of Bhangra culture from "East of Indus" by Gurnam Singh Sidhu Brard (the author was born in 1930, Patiala state). This is how Bhangra made its way into Panjabi culture.
  10. I'm not defending anyone, I don't support this. Neither do I support casteism or vile language towards any group.
  11. This year Punjab had the second highest number of participants in the Commonwealth Games from India, 1st was Haryana. Haryana, Punjab contribute most medallists to India's tally at CWG 2022 Haryana and Punjab contributed as many as 46 medal-winners to India's tally at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
  12. The main Bhangra guy at the Commonwealth Games was "Apache Indian", his real name is Steven Kapur. Bhangra and performance by 'Apache Indian' marks closing ceremony of Commonwealth Games
