  1. Why are Sikh women always blamed for letting down Sikhi when Sikh men have also done it? Sardar Ishar Singh Nakai of Nakai Misl which was one of the twelve Sikh Misls converted to Islam to marry a Muslim lady. He took the name Abdul Aziz Nakai and his descendents are influential people in Pakistani politics. M.Ranjit Singh married a Muslim nautch girl moran who opened Arabic and Persian schools after marriage and a mosque.

  2. Palbinder Kaur Shergill, a prominent Sikh lawyer in British Columbia, Canada, was appointed a BC Supreme Court Justice by the Trudeau government. She was born in Rurka Kalan in Jalandhar and is thought to be the first turbanned judge in Canada. "She has represented the WSO in landmark cases in front of the Supreme Court of Canada including the right of Sikh students to wear the kirpan (a ceremonial knife) in schools, and the right of a Catholic high school to teach an ethics and religious culture course from a Catholic perspective." http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/06/26/palbinder-kaur-sh

  4. I've noticed virtually every sikh woman who foolishly dated and married someone outside their faith have had their marriages end in divorce. Most of these women tend to have married white atheist/Christian men and it always ends very badly very bitter divorces. There was this one punjaban i got to know called [ModCut- NAMES ARE NOT ALLOWED] she married her white boyfriend and divorced 2 years later after she caught him cheating and now shes letting herself being used and abused by guys in clubs and one night stands in online dating sites. Another punjabi girl i knew who was from south england
  5. In one of the 52 commandments Guru Gobind Singh Ji left for the Sikhs he stated that a daughter of the Sikhs should only have her hand in marriage given to another Sikh family. But he did not say the same for Sikh sons for them only given to Sikhs for marriage. Why was this? This question is mainly for the liberal lefties to ponder on. Because to majority of learned and right thinking Sikhs he is clearly showing us how there is a difference between the genders when it comes to procreation and relationships. Sikh Men are like rocks in the ground they will usually stick to their reili

She's a slender, tall British-Indian Sikh woman. She works as a teaching assistant at her local school in Ilford, north-
  7. In its teachings, Sikhism is strongly in favour of gender equality. But is it like this in every day reality for Sikh women? Harjit Sarang is Family Law solicitor with a specialism in Parenting and Fertility Law for LGBT and infertile couples. She is a Sikh and a passionate feminist. I asked her about the tensions between faith and culture. VB: The Sikh faith is, most would argue, at heart very much pro gender equality. Do you see this as the experience of most Sikh women? // Harjit Sarang // HS: In my experience, for many families the Sikh culture (which is really just part of the India
