  1. Lots of Sikhs and non-Sikhs ate tweetings #Sikhlivesmatter hashtag on twitter bascially give a 1 finger salute to british/western mainstream media for not covering the killings of peaceful protesters in india.
  2. Apologies if someone is wondering why I start topics in this section of the site. I don't consider myself an intellectual in any form; too much of a pendu for that, lol. Anyway, are there any books which look at Sikh history in the 20th century in reference to our experiences in India, preferably 1947 to the 1990's? Basically, how we've been treated by the Indian government as a collective, not just individual experiences on a local level? Are there such books?
  3. MUST READ Part I PART II of II Sept. 20, 2015: During his visit to Anandpur, the city was under attack by an alliance of Rajputs and Moghuls. Kalgidhar Pathshah Ji asked Bhai Ji to do water seva because he had been undertaking water seva for so long, for the Sikhs fighting in the battle. Bhai Ji happily agreed to comply with His Hukam. Bhai Ji, wearing white robes, was often seen with a mashak (a water pouch) in the battle field, serving water to wounded soldiers without any discrimination. It was amazing that due to Bhai Ji's spiritual state, he had easy access to frontiers of all warring

  5. The Future of World Religions: Population Growth Projections, 2010-2050 Why Muslims Are Rising Fastest and the Unaffiliated Are Shrinking as a Share of the World’s Population The religious profile of the world is rapidly changing, driven primarily by differences in fertility rates and the size of youth populations among the world’s major religions, as well as by people switching faiths. Over the next four decades, Christians will remain the largest religious group, but Islam will grow faster than any other major religion. If current trends continue, by 2050 … The number of Muslims will nearl
  6. I have heard some people say Sikhism is a mixture of Hinduism or that alot of the beliefs come from Hinduism. As I have not done extensive study on this I am not able to make a judgment. But what are the facts on this?
  7. Sat Sri Akal Sangat, Here I am to discuss a very important issue, Most of you must have gone through the answers to the question "What is the funniest sardar joke you've heard?" on www.quora.com. I had also gone through and I felt bad, as a huge social platform like quora was being used to shame Sikhs. Some people may say , it is "fun", but targeting a particular religion in public like this is not acceptable. Anyway, I happened to edit the question(which Quora allows). However, the person who had posted the question reframed it to the same again; I edited it again and this process conti
  8. I have noticed that of all the South Asian communities in the UK The Sikhs are one of the most whitified communities. Many of the girls think they are some rock punk chicks so to speak and the boys think they are they are some cockney geezers. init mate! London Town! lolThey even act white or even black if you come from the endz. But on a serious note why do many Sikhs act white. They have even changed their names to English names . Are Sikhs losing their identity, religion and culture? Why cant Sikhs just be Sikhs? I think alot of this is down to the mass media ie telvision, music, pop
  9. I often wondered why do Christian fundamentalists want to convert Sikhs when our numbers are not even that big compared to other world religions. I used to think it was only the Muslims that wanted to convert our people, yet there is growing evidence there is a serious push by Christian leadership to do the same. We don't have anything against Christians or their faith we do not actively try to convert them they chose to come into sikhi by their own research and initiative. There are no support networks for new converts to Sikhism even thats how crap our current missionary status is. yet for s
  10. Waheguru From: http://dailysikhupdates.com/uk-sikhs-establish-first-ever-parcharak-school-for-sikhs/ Sangat ji, *New Parcharik School – by Basics of Sikhi* Starting from End June 2015-* In our search for parcharaks we found many people saying, “I would do parchar if I knew more about Sikhi”. Since not everyone is able to go to India to learn Sikhi, Basics of Sikhi is setting up a Parcharik School in the UK to train-up people who want to become parchariks. This will be a full-time 6 month course and we are hiring a full-time tutor to teach it. He is a native British Sikh who has spent many
  11. So, I've been watching the trailers for the new Hollywood rom/com 'Learning to Drive' due to be released late this summer. Ben Kingsley's the lead and he plays a Sikh driving instructor. From what I can see from the trailers, this movie might just do an amazing job of showing the mainstream population what normal, wonderfull people we are and how amazing our religion is. Not really into rom/coms so can't say I'm looking forward to seeing it, but I am looking forward to the inevitable favourable reaction towards Sikhs that will come with it. Here's a trailer:
  12. sat sri akal to all , this is my first topic here, though i was silent reader of this forum for the past 2 yrs. i have seen many muslims (pakistanis to be precise) saying things like sikhs killed many muslims, raped women and did a hell lot of bad things to the muslims during partition. They spread a lot of hate against us on social networking sites , blaming us for the partition violence . I know we did attack them , but was our retaliation that extreme? most of the sikhs simply keep mum on this issue and don't reply them back. i want to know our sangat's view on this.
  13. A Tale of Changing Faiths: Amritsar, Punjab: Majha region of North Punjab (India) is a traditional Sikh-Akali belt. It has the history of protecting Sikhism and Harimandir Sahib from the onslaughts of the invading traders. Sikhs under Baba Gurbakash Singh, Baba Deep Singh and Baba Naudh Singh are known to have laid down their lives along with their fellow Sikhs showing heroic deeds against the invaders on Sri Harmandir Sahib. Every driver bows and stops at the Samadhi of Baba Naudh Singh on Amritsar-Tarantarn road. Bowing my head too, I pointed to S. Balwant Singh (name changed): Me: ‘This i

  16. Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ke fateh! I've recently received poor grades for my a levels - and have been told to drop the subjects I enjoyed the most because I received poor grades © in them. I don't know what to do, like I said I do the sukhmani sahib paath (listen to it every day) but no Sukh in my life ever seems to come. Am I doing the sukhmani sahib correctly, because I think dookh should be dispelled if you listen to the path, but for me everyday goes by and I seem to become more depressed and dissatisfied out of life. I'm beg my Lord for his naam, virtue and happiness - but
  17. Vaheguruji Very worrying news coming from Panjab, Bhai Amrik Singh Ji Ajnala (Mukh Sevadar Damdami Taksaal) has been shot and injured by the Panjab police. Over 20 other Gursikhs have been shot too, some are in critical condition. The news is skechy at the moment, a Jatha of Gusikhs went to help local sikhs in Taran Taran Sahib where a cult was threating the local villgers. Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala has on countless times risked his life to stop beadbi of Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and to stood up to injustices against the local population. The Panjab police open fire on the Sikhs and we
  18. This may seem silly but I have been recieving conflicting information. Does article 25 of indias constitution that states sikhs buddhists and other minorities are sects of Hinduism still in action or exist?

  20. Wjkk Wjkf I've been paath for a few weeks now, and today i prayed waheguru ji that I want to become jivan mukhti and attach to him for the rest of my life, and I felt really connected to waheguru ji whilst listening to the sukhmani sahib paath, but then all of a sudden around 7 pm ish I kept on getting doubts 'about existance of God' Why has waheguru ji put such thoughts in my mind , I want to become closer to him not further Is God testing me? What do I do? How do I dispel doubt? I am not a amritdhari as yet due to the environment I live(no religous familily), but I seek to become one
  21. Please share some of your experiences in light of 9/11 and if possible please answer the following questions. *Was the targeting of a majority of non-Caucasians (specifically brown-skinned) individuals an exhibition of deep rooted colonial bias? *In retrospect, was 9/11 a somewhat positive step towards forcing Sikhs to utilize the media? *What factors lead to all 'turbans' being classified as Islamic and thus radical head gear? *How has the racism, exhibited 9/11, affected the diaspora's perception of Western nations? *What are the social lessons of 9/11?
