  1. ^That's the plan We are not affiliated with any specific organisation. Our ONLY goal is the imposition of JUSTICE in India and the ABOLITION of the Death Penalty
  2. Protest in London, FRIDAY 23rd March, against the hanging of Balwant Singh Rajoana who helped bring justice to the Chief Minister of Punjab (the killer of hundreds of young Sikhs). Bhai Sahib is giving up his life because of his decision to stop a mass murderer This protest has been organised by YOUTH sangat and we encourage ALL the youth to attend, give their views and support! Opposite- High Commission of India, India House, Aldwych, London, WC2B 4NA Do not sit back while the gems of the Panth continue to be taken from us. PLEASE spread the word and if possible, speak to your local gurudwaras about arranging a coach/transport! WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOUNG, ENGLISH SPEAKERS TO GIVE THEIR THOUGHTS 12-4PM
  3. PLEASE spread the word - to coincide with worldwide protest (and for sangat who were unable to make Tuesdays protest), there is ANOTHER Protest outside Indian High Commission being organised for FRIDAY 23rd MARCH.

  7. Like I said before, instead of slandering individuals/sikhsoc's/groups. Feel free to come to us and we'll straighten this out.
  8. Vaheguroo Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguroo Ji KI Fateh On behalf of the Oxford Brookes Sikh Society Committee, I would like to make a statement. We are saddened that a member of the society does not feel comfortable enough to come forward with their questions or comments and would like to emphasise that they are free to do so at any time in an open and friendly atmosphere. OBUsikhsoc have a guest speaker every few months to speak about issues which the committee (and usually the members) feel affect the sikh youth/students. After each event, the follow up meeting (held a week later) is an open forum for discussion and commentary regarding what was spoken about in the lecture. Criticism, is encouraged. We achknowledge that our speakers are only human and may sometimes bring their own views/opinions into the discussion. We feel that much of what has been written here has been taken out of context/the writer may have misunderstood the Speaker. However, if you still feel that this is not the case, then please come forward to speak to us directly so that we can sit down and analyse this together. THanks Vaheguroo Ji Ka KHalsa Vaheguroo Ji Ki Fateh
  9. Love, Compassion, Honesty, Truth are fundamental. Start reading Gurbani and really try and understand the messages behind the writings. Start meditation and remembrance of The One. Teji Kaur gave the perfect definition. To become Khalsa (Pure One) take Amrit from Panj Pyare in the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. (I'd recommend first practising the lifestyle).

    Hair

    http://sikhithoughts.blogspot.com/2010/03/importance-of-kes-hair-to-sikh.html If "fitting in" is more important to you than anything else, then go ahead and cut your kes.... But 'fitting in' seems like a pretty lame reason doesnt it? The truth is you don't know WHY we keep out ke, you don't understand our HISTORY, our FAITH. It comes down to YOU to find out. Once you do that, I'm pretty sure you'd keep your kes....
  11. http://sikhithoughts.blogspot.com/2010/03/back-to-basics.html ..........Blog Update: "If some lucky men survive the onslaught of the third world war of atomic and hydrogen bombs, then the Sikh religion will be the only means of guiding them.' When asked, isn’t this religion capable of guiding mankind before the third world war? He said, ‘Yes it has the capability, but the Sikhs haven’t brought out in the broad daylight the splendid doctrines of this religion, which has come into existence for the benefit of the entire mankind. This is their greatest sin and the Sikhs cannot be freed of it." Bertrand Russell (Philosopher, Mathematician 1872-1970) Half of us don't follow the 'splendid doctrines of this religion'. How can this dude expect us to teach others about it?? We spend so much time worrying about tiny details in reht (conduct), pro vs anti-khalistan, jatha v jatha (groups/sects within Sikhi) that we've forgotten the basics of Sikhi: Truth, Contentment, Humility, Love, Honest earning (Kirat Karna), Seva (selfless service) Vand ke Shakna (Sharing), Reading Gurbani and most importantly Naam Japna (contemplation on the Divine Name). I bet you ANY money, once we start practicing all of these aspects together, everything will fall into place...until then...
  12. LOL one thing which hasnt changed... people inexplicably mistake me for a dude... thanks for the welcome veerji
  13. YO...this thread is still alive... everything else on SS seems to have changed though...
  14. VAHEGUROO JI KA KHALSA VAHEGUROO JI KI FATEH!

  15. i never knew we did asa di //??!! they cudda mentioned it, i woulda stayed after nitnem! what else did I miss??
  16. this is such a waste of time

  17. wicked pics pahji - really brings camp back to life
  18. With Vaheguroos Maha Kirpa this camp was an amasing experience and I would definately recommend everyone go...
  19. who says the muslims have ownership over a colour? And who cares if we do look a little militant? I think that would be a good thing. Lets keep this in context ... were talking about 25 years since Sri Harimandir Sahib was attacked ... and the issue is that we might look a 'little militant/muslim'? 25 years of doing peaceful happy go lucky rallies has achieved what? Lets be brutally honest, flower power has achieved us nothing. But seeing as we must abide by the laws we continue anyway and do the best we can. However, the Indians, the ENGLISH and others need to realise that this is not just another 'day wasted in the sun' or a walk around for a bunch of hippies. If they feel a shiver down their spine then good! They need to see and hear the pain of the Sikhs, and to realise that we want justice, but also .. that we are prepared to get it, by whichever means we are forced to adopt (with guru jis kirpa). Your perfectly entitled to your view, I just think that the last thing we need to worry about when wearing a certain colour of clothing is that we may look like muslims. If we go down that line, then might as well put away the beards and turbans as well ... and god forbid anyone realise that these muslim lookalikes also carry daggers! sorry pahji but i dont agree. you gotta look at it this way - do u want the gora's support or not and how do u win that support? For example WE all know that m.k gandhi was a sell-out but goreh love him...violence in society is never seen as a good thing - no matter WHERE u come from, why you do it etc. - goreh just dont understand. therefore to get them onside we gotta be clever and not emotional. It's so easy to be emotional but much harder to stop n think about what we're doing and be clever about things. It's a fact fundamentalism (no matter what the meaning or intent) is considered a threat and treated with suspicion. We get seen as fanatics even by our own... sometimes other raasta's are needed.. and besides - if not to get the goreh to understand and support us, what are these rallys for? to threaten the indian gov? to tell them we 'remember'? they already know these things...for once in our lives wouldnt it be good to get some REAL support and action from here? We can all get on our high horses and say 'sod them, who cares? we'll do what we want' - but what will it achieve?? Our lot get too excited about getting together, shouting slogans, having a nice day in the park n going home again...it's becoming a joke. I agree - it is 25 years - we need to make a statement - but i dont agree it should be one of militancy - we wont be taken SERIOUSLY is the problem - not that i agree with flowerpower either lol - and it's not about being afraid of being like muslims - like i said, just trying to be clever about the situation - cos half of em dont know we're sikhs, they just label us as muslims before they bother to find out.
  20. That's a bit better...I'm also producing a leaflet on Sikhi - basic tenets etc. for those who dont know who we are (believe me there's a LOT of people) I thought it would make sense....where we way 'sikhs want justice' a lot of people will saying 'what's a sikh?'
  21. ^^ Good post 'Wicked Warrior'. There's something called the 'healthy balance' that members of our community either ignore or are unable to handle. It's always extreme - either drink, meat etc all the time or a the 'ohol' lot who care so much about the finer details and reht, they forget the real 'fundamental' aspects of the religion...its fun and mental...fundamental
  22. lol ok mate...25 years later and punjabi's are still getting picked up n killed in fake encounters...that your idea of freedom yeh?
  23. no offence or nothing and as a sikh I completely see where this comes from. In India this would very probably make sense to external observers however, remember this, we're in ENGLAND. As it is, we already get a lot of bad attitude towards us because like it or not we 'resemble' various militant muslim groups. The fact that we wear colours other than black tends to differentiate us from them. Which in my opinion is a good thing. Think about it, if you see a thousand 'muslim-looking' people walking towards you in black shouting (lets face it) quite violent slogans... how you gonna react as an average english citizen? Probably with aggression, suspicion and act stand-offish... the idea of this march isnt just about letting the Indians know we want justice but others too, like the goreh. I'm not saying it's a bad idea or anything, I just think you should take this into account and have some pretty good leaflets to get them on side, or it'll just be another day wasted in the sun.
