  1. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Lala Jagat Narain was killed because he said disrespectful things towards Sant Jarnail Singh , and because he was a witness against the AKJ in the 1978 Amristar Massacre trial. 62 of the newspaper staff were also killed. (over a period of time) Am I the only one who thinks this seems like terrorism? Don't get me wrong, because I am against the corrupt Indian Government and I think it was amazing how Sant Jee was waking up Panjab. But I don't think it is right to kill someone unless they are using or directing violence at someone. Personally, I have libertarian views and I think you should let everyone express their opinions , even if you don't agree. This is why I fear that if Khalistan is ever created that it will become like a Muslim country where you can get arrested for insulting the Prophet or something, which is against human rights. What if in the future someone creates some film disrespectful towards Sikhi? Are Singhs going to stab/shoot/attack them like Charlie Hebdo? Please understand and correct me if I am wrong Bhul Chuk Maaf Karo Jee WJKK WJKF EDIT : It seems that he also said things extremely disrespectful towards Guru Gobind Singh Sahib

Here's why he has a problem with it By Nilanjana Bhowmick/New Delhi Feb. 12, 201442 Comments ShareRead Later MARAL DEGHATI / AFP/Getty Images Penguin Books India has agreed to recall and pulp all copies in India of The Hindus: An Alternative History by U.S. scholar Wendy Doniger, raising concerns over freedom of expression in the worlds largest democracy. The move by one of Indias major book publishers is a settlement with members of the Hindu group Shiksha Bachao Andolan, which has filed civil and criminal cases over the work. In a conversation with TIME, Shiksha Bachao Andolan president Dinanath Batra explains why he thinks Donigers book hurts Hindu sentiments and is propagating lies about Hindu deities and national icons. No stranger to controversy, Batra had earlier taken on Indian educational boards for what he says have been distortion of facts and has actively opposed and subsequently stopped the introduction of sex education in Indian schools, saying it was against Hindu culture and religion. TIME: What are your objections to Wendy Donigers book, The Hindus? Batra: Her intention is bad, the content is anti-national and the language is abusive. Her agenda is to malign Hinduism and hurt the feelings of Hindus. And you say that because? According to her book, when Ramrajya [an idyllic vision of state propounded by Mahatma Gandhi] comes to India, then Christians and Muslims will be driven out of India. We all know that Gandhijis vision was about unity; he dreamed of a state where there would be no discrimination based on religion or wealth. Her book will incite hatred among communities. Furthermore, Doniger says [in the book] that when Sanskrit scriptures were written, Indian society favored open sexuality. The jacket of her book shows Lord Krishna sitting on the buttocks of nude women. She equates the shivlingam, worshipped all over India by millions, with sex and calls it an erect <banned word filter activated>. She calls Gandhiji strange and says he used to sleep with young girls. So, it is primarily the juxtaposition of sex and Hinduism in the book that bothers you? The entire book is objectionable, but yes, that is one of our main objections. She is insulting our gods and goddesses and religious leaders and texts and even our freedom fighters. I dont have any objection to sex and neither does our religion, as long as its within the parameters of religion. Why does it matter so much to you about what someone writes about Hinduism? If someone makes a cartoon of the prophet Mohammad, Muslims are outraged around the world. So why should anyone write anything against Hinduism and get away with it? It matters because this book is hurting the sentiments of Hindus all over the world. I am a Hindu. When I read the book, I felt hurt. It hurt my sentiments. Will you protest against every book that doesnt fit your idea of Hinduism? We are against anything that hurts peoples religious sentiments. Our movement is aimed at cleansing distortions from education in India. We have also taken on the Indian educational boards for wrong facts in their textbooks. We will protest against any book that portrays a negative image of our society. Dont you worry that your objections might seem outdated in todays modern world? We are not against modernity, but we are against westernization. Max Mueller once said that they conquered India once and that they will do it again but through education. Through westernization, theres a renewed effort to enslave our country. Hindus all over the world should stand up against this. In the tiny world we live, we have to try and create heaven out of hell.
  3. Dear SikhSangat Admin and Mods. Why is my id being killed off? I have never hurt anyone here! You guys must heard of internet broadband wi-fi which enables different members of one household to use the internet from a unique IP address? So why are going to kill off my id and access to the forum when I was never on quality control, never in trouble and never had any arguments with anybody? I mean fair enough you can ban my brothers UKLondonSikh and isingh1699 because they dared to argue with GPS about Kartar Singh Jhabbar and wanted to get the Focus Punjab PURE fundraising drive launched but please tell me what I have done to deserve getting banned or having my id deleted?
