  1. Could there be a possible link to why bill gates, ambani and other rich billionaires are trying to buy vast farm land? Bill gates has been successful in aquiring vast amounts of farm land in america just recently. Ambani plans to doe the same in india hence the huge protests and push back by small farmers. The UN agenda 21 and 2030 claims for a sustainable future things will need to be done differently. Is this all part of the agenda? That the UN other bodies are involved in trying to oppress the common man across the word
  2.

    Equality during Anand Karaj

    Sat sri akal, everyone! I'm just having some trouble wrapping my head around Sikh society. As a woman, I am proud to be Sikh because it advocates for equality among the genders. However, my faith has been suffering due to societal thinking, especially here in Canada. My fiancé and I are getting married next year and we are having a lot of trouble finding a raagi jattha. Why? Because both of us (and our families) want us to walk beside each other instead of the traditional bride behind groom way for the lavaan. People are simply unwilling to do it and those that can, are crazy expensive. Our traditions have been heavily borrowed from Hinduism but without all the fuss. We have even changed the way we think about Sikh marriage, as the bride and groom get married together to God. So then why do I have to walk behind him? To make things worse, I have heard some really sexist things from some of the raagis who explained why I must walk behind him. I am so disappointed in our people. I guess I wanted some more opinions on this. Am I missing some pertinent information? But if anyone has more information about this or raagis who are more open minded, I'd love to hear about it! Thank you!
  4. Do men/women get more corrupt as they get older? by corrupt I mean the kind of stuff you see Gurdwara owners do, leaders, older relatives etc They're all Grey-haired/bearded old men. Younger people obviously do wrong things, but it seems as one gets older, maybe past 40? people tend to become more and more corrupt. Like children are not obviously corrupt, teenagers pick up bad habits but they are not corrupt/twisted, they don't care about politics, you can say the same about people in their 20s and 30s, and perhaps even 40s. I've seen the same with people in India. Younger people do wrong things, but they are not corrupt in that way, but the older men/women are so twisted! Even in families, its not younger people who do all the family politics, its normally the older ladies. Is that the case? if its is, then why ?
  5. Is the dog wagging the tail or the other way around? We have seen a marked increase in atheist militant secularism rise in the west opposing countries that have theocratic or governments that do not hold the same agenda they do. We have seen how the UK government under thatecher's regime supported the Indian govt in 1980s for economic deals to kill Sikh religious and political figures and huge number of Sikhs in their own holiest shrine and homeland. Terrorist Thatcher also supported the dictator general pinoche who murdered his own citizens in Chile. Thatchers own terrorist son got done for causing unrest in gambia using the british SAS special forces to cause an anti-govt rebelian which failed. Question is... is it the Racist White British establishment controlling this evil agenda against getting justice for Sikhs who been murdered in 1980s and the human right of return of Sikh sovereignty or is it the Racist castist Brahmin hindu elite of India? Who is the one that is in power and oppressing legitimate democratic and fundamental human right of self determination of the Sikh nation? If you read recent news reports in Indian websites and papers they show there is still cooperation between the 2 countries in harming support for self determination for Sikhs. We have seen how the evil mass murderer general brar was able to come to London like a VIP under the protection of the British govt would hitler have been welcome to britian after murderring so many jews in germany? Oh yes he wouldnt have because one law for the Sikhs along with the rest and another for a select few. Where is the Sikh council why havent they kicked up a fuss? Have they been brought off? How can Sikhs as a global community over come this huge abuse of power by powerful people who just do not want you to have your own nation state or universal justice to prevail.
  6. I think its important to know whats happening in society around us and how Kalyug is at play. So im going to be posting news stories on here of what is happening in our society and back in Punjab/India A lot of the shocking and disturbing stuff we hear in the news is actually already stated by our gurus when they described the behavior of people in the dark age of Kalyug Its scary to think the direction humanity is heading
  7. Not sure how old this video is but either way it's so sad. What has happened to people... There is no humanity left in India at all, no one cares about the poor. Our own poor sikh people are suffering but no one cares about them VID-20181019-WA0004.mp4
  8. 'In India, Sikhs fear cops the most & Panjab shows highest police dread' IP Singh | TNN | Updated: Jun 12, 2018, 13:24 IST JALANDHAR: Sikhs have highest level of fear of police amongst the religious communities of India, according to a report on policing in the country. In state-wise analysis, Punjab has the highest incidence of "police fear." Religion-wise distribution of "police fear" analysed in the Status of Policing in India Report 2018 by Common Cause and the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies shows that 37% Sikhs were highly fearful of the police - over double the national average. The report says this "can have a possible connection to the particular history of Punjab in the last four decades." Upper class Sikhs are much more likely to be scared (42%) compared to upper class Hindus (14%) or upper class Muslims (9%). Discrimination by cops: Pb No. 13 on perception index Among Hindus, the upper castes are least fearful of police while Scheduled Tribes are most fearful. The report also highlighted that the likelihood of poor Sikhs being scared is higher — a trend repeated across all other religious groups. “A religion-wise distribution shows that Sikhs have the highest levels of fear, which turns out to be much higher than the national average. The statewise distribution shows the high incidence of this fear in Punjab. Given that a majority of the Sikh responses are coming from this state, it is the high fear levels in Punjab which are contributing to the high figures,” the report said. Punjab, according to the report, ranks last among the states on the Index of Police Fear and Himachal Pradesh tops the list, meaning Himachalis are the least fearful of being victims of police excesses. “The control and responsibility of the police falls under the state list and such a relative analysis tells us about the vastly differing perceptions the same institution inspires in different states, opening the space for deliberating and comparing different state policies of policing,” the report added. Tamil Nadu has highest acceptance of police brutality towards criminals, followed by Gujarat, the report found Interestingly, in Himachal Pradesh, highest number of respondents showed least acceptability of police violence, whereas Punjab figures among the states which showed high acceptability of police violence. Recommended By Colombia On a state-wise summated score in which the state with the least acceptability towards police violence is ranked highest and the state with highest acceptability is ranked lowest, Punjab figures at 15th position. In the Index of Perception of Discrimination by Police, Punjab figures at number 13, with Bihar emerging as the worst state and West Bengal the best. Haryana and Himachal have shown most positive perception of police while Punjab is ranked lowest. Punjab is also among the lowest ranking states on police independence. Kerala is ranked highest on police independence and Odisha is the lowest, followed by Delhi and Punjab. https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/amritsar/in-india-sikhs-fear-cops-the-most-panjab-shows-highest-police-dread/articleshow/64554802.cms

  10. Anyone watching this show in Netflix? I just saw ep.3 and am in shock at how they used a 16 year old boy, who clearly has serious learning difficulties, to incriminate himself (and his uncle) in murder!
  11. A tale of two hijackers – One gets Congress ticket for fourth time and other is India’s most wanted. Jalandhar, Punjab: The candidature of a former hijacker Bhola Pandey from Salempur constituency of UP by Congress for the fourth time in a row has given handle to Sikh group Dal Khalsa to draw comparison between the treatment meted out to him and Dal Khalsa leader Gajinder Singh, who hijacked an Indian Airline plane and who is on India’s most wanted list. Recently a compilation of Gajinder Singh’s poems was released in Amritsar by Dal Khalsa. “The diametrically opposite approach adapted by the government and Congress in both the cases reveals double standards and discriminative approach which further resulted in deepening the alienation of struggling peoples from the Indian mainstream,” said Dal Khalsa spokesperson Kanwarpal Singh. “Congress rewarded Pandey for hijacking the Indian plane to seek the release of late Indira Gandhi during Janta regime and the case against him was also dropped but our leader Gajinder Singh has been declared a “hardcore terrorist” for hijacking the Indian plane to seek the release of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale in 1981,” he said. Bhola Pandey and his friend Devandar Nath Pandey hijacked IA flight no IC 410 on 20 Dec 1978 and were released shortly. Since then Pandey was being awarded with Congress tickets first for assembly and then for Lok Sabha. Around three years later Gajinder Singh along with four Dal Khalsa activists hijacked IA flight from Delhi to Srinagar on 29 September 1981 and landed in Lahore where they were caught in commando action by Pakistani forces. But since 1978 Pandey is enjoying the state’s privilege while Gajinder Singh served 14 years detention and is living in exile facing hardships since his release in November 1994. He said both the cases had striking similarities as in both the cases hijackers did not posses weapons, they did not harm any passengers and the hijacking act was to register the protest and seek the release of their respective leaders. “The only difference was that Pandey did it for the sake of Congress leader where as Gajinder Singh did for Sikh leader. Pandey was loyal to Gandhi family while Gajinder Singh’s loyalty was towards Sikhs and Bhindranwale. And this difference turned out to be a big difference,” he said. “Pandey was perceived and projected as “hero” and on the other hand Gajinder Singh was declared most wanted “terrorist” by successive Indian governments. Even today his name figures in the list of most wanted persons. “”This is the classic example that proves beyond doubt that India is not a secular country, “” claimed the Dal Khalsa leader. This discriminative approach of Congress leadership also proved that the country is not governed as per rule of law but by law of rulers. Congress government was still seeking his extradition despite the fact that he had served 14 years behind the bars for hijacking while Pandey was being allotted ticket in every election.
