  1. Here is the hate filled bigotry from a mullah in pakistan. Hope this is an eye opener for those praising Pakistan. These bigots are free to make big speeches to crowds in Pakistan. Shame on them!! https://youtu.be/7dWlanixDWs
  2. https://news-communique.com/index.php/2019/11/10/gurudwaras-of-pakistan-systematic-destruction-by-islamist-radical-pakistan/
  3. Wjkk Wjkf! What is the historical source on which the Panja Sahib sakhi is based? Is there any historical sakhi or is it only a legend of oral tradition? I even read somewhere that it is the story of a Buddhist monk that people somehow confused. Should I believe the sakhi of Guru Nanak Sahib ji stopping the boulder thrown by Wali Qandhari with their hand? I could not find a source. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks! Wjkk Wjkf!

  5. Shame on khalistani who support Pakistan and isi. Sikh population in Pakistan is being decimated and we refuse to speak up. Our daughters and sisters are being abducted and forcibly converted to islam. Shame on us. https://m.timesofindia.com/india/pak-suppress-voice-of-sikhs-after-kidnapping-and-forced-conversion-of-a-minor-girl-in-nankana-sahib/articleshow/70896124.cms
  6. In 1984 i (Margaret Thatcher) helped my good friend Indira Gandhi kill Sikhs in Operation Bluestar. I used Sikh taxpayers money to help kill thouands of innocent Sikhs. But nobody can accuse the UK government of being racist since: Pakistan received the most official development assistance from the UK last year, with costs totalling £463m. The UK Government has given about £4 billion to the people of Pakistan just in the last 10years. Masha'Allah Besides it's a nice little reward to the Pakistani's for their Genocide of Sikhs and their terrorist activity in the UK. Meanwhile because the Siks dont demand compensation for the terrorist attacks I helped organise on them ... those Sikhs get nothing ... hahaha ... while the Pakistani's supply drugs to destroy the new Sikh generation lol
  7. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh sangat ji! I wanted to share the following video with you. For the uninitiated, this YouTube channel does some content relating to sikhi in Pakistan, tracing family lineages across India-Pak border (whole of Punjab), Punjabi culture, apart from other things. I think the sangat would appreciate it. Would love to hear what you have to say. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh!
  8. I had a thought recently that Imran Khan and Pakistan have basically run rings around the Indian govt by agreeing to the Kartarpur corridor and by doing so forced the Indian govt to do something worthwhile for Sikhs who we all know they are loathe to do. Due to this even though 5 Sikh soldiers died in the Pulwama attack Imran Khan and Pakistan is held in high regard to what they have done to facilitate the Kartarpur corridor. With the sabre rattled and then some dubious attacks by either side the situation could easily have changed and the Kartarpur corridor could have been sabotaged. All the Indian govt had to do was to have some sell outs like Amrinder Singh or that odious muppet R P Singh of the BJP say that they regard India above their religion and hence they do not want to have anything to do with Pakistan. Fortunately this did not happen maybe because Modi knows that Sikhs today more united behind the Kartarpur corridor than they have ever been behind any other issue. The war like situation showed how vunerable Punjab is to becoming a battlefield of the war mongers of India. All those talking heads like Arnab Goswami and Navika Kumar calling out for all out war knowing that they will not be affected and it will the Punjabis who will suffer. Whenever there is such a situation the Punjab farmers on the border have to evacuate further inland and they lose out economically. This happened during Kargil in 1999 and then again in 2002. No compensation is ever paid to them. Imran Khan currently has high kudos with our community. Other Pakistan leaders have also done much for the Sikhs, Zia Ul Haq opened up Nankana Sahib in 1979, which was an initiative of the Sikhs abroad like Sardar Ganga Singh Dhillon. Imran Khan could totally change the political and military equation in the region if he agreed to give the area around Kartarpur Sahib on a lease of say 199 or 299 years for a payment of some sum possibly in the millions. This area could be say 10km x 10 km. In this area the Sikhs abroad could develop the site, build schools and colleges. The area could be demarcated so as to avoid the larger villages so that the Muslim population would stay in Pakistan. The area would stretch to the Indian border. Sikhs would be responsible for the security of the area and if Pakistan wanted they could have to area stretch lengthways along the Indian border so that in essence this area of the border would be effectively demilitarised. The reason why this would change the political and military scenario is that Sikhs would effectively have a tract that they would run. By running it in an effective manner and turning this area into an first world oasis surrounded by the third would this would electrify the Sikhs in Punjab into believing that if this tract can be turned into a first world oasis then why couldn't the Sikh turn Khalistan into such a region? The schools and colleges in this tract could offer places for Sikhs across the border. The Indians could not object especially of the corridor is opened all year round and the Kartarpur tract authorities do not ask for these Indian Sikhs to have a visa to visit. Sikhs abroad could invest in this tract and it could have an electric tramway to take the pilgrims to Kartarpur Sahib. The border especially in this area would be effectively demilitarised since both the Pakistani and Indian border guards would be divided by the 10 km tract. For Pakistan this presents an ideal opportunity to build on the kudos and support that Imran Khan and Pakistan has among the Sikhs. Nothing would irk the Indian govt more than to know that the 20 Millions Sikhs in the Punjab and bordering states support Pakistan. Pakistan would lose very little as economically the area around Kartarpur is sparsely populated. The land is not lost to Pakistan as it is on lease. The villages on the Kartarpur - Pakistan border would then also not need to be evacuated every time there is war like situation. The Kartarpur tract could become the nucleus of the Sikh pilgrimage trail. Sikhs from abroad visiting Kartarpur Sahib could then come via Lahore rather than Delhi and tie their visit to visiting Nankana Sahib and other Sikh shrines in Pakistan. The population of the tract could provide employment along with housing for Sikhs from areas of Pakistan where they are miniscule and poor economically. Also Pakistan has been at a loss diplomatically but having support from a worldwide Sikh community would help it greatly. Anyway this was just a thought that I had.
  9. I find her story really sad. To think that Sikhs are living in that country too. Europe is more than happy to flood itself with millions of muslim refugees and give special status to people like malala whats her name who was blown up by terrorists, but when it comes to non muslims being tortured in muslim countries the west is silent! it really amazes me!
  10. New Prime Minister of Pakistan. What does this mean for Pakistan? India? And will it have any direct/indirect impact for Sikhs?
  11. Indian Punjabi woman converts to Islam after visit to Pakistan Not sure if this is true or not, however I have seen it on a lot of websites. If this is true, and I wouldn't be surprised, why? What is the reason that our people are so lenient in comparison to other South Asian religions in marrying out? This isn't only targeted against our women, our men are included as well. However, our women are usually the ones prayed on by Pakistani Muslims for marriage and conversion. I remember asking one of my fellow cousin's Sikh friend who was married to a Hindu man, how they were planning to raise the child, and she blatantly stated that" God is one, doesn't matter what religion he is," and then she continued to tell me how, "the whole family, including the child, go to the Mandir once a week." Are these cases due to a lack of education of fundamental principles, or is it the leniency of Sikh families?
  12. anyone watch these 2 documentaries that were made? if so whats your thoughts?
  13. The ringleader of the London Bridge terror attack was a former Underground and KFC worker known for his extremist views. The 27-year-old attacker, who can only be identified as 'Abdul' at the request of police, was a home-grown jihadi who came to the UK from a village near Lahore in Pakistan as a child and spent his life in Barking, East London. But in recent years he had become increasingly radical and was twice reported to anti-terror authorities, it has been claimed. He even appeared in TV documentary about British jihadis and was questioned by police after an Islamic State flag was unfurled in a park. The revelations will put further pressure on Britain's security services after Manchester bomber Salman Abedi also appeared to have slipped through the net before carrying out the atrocity. A neighbour recognised this picture of the killer in an Arsenal away shirt (Photo: AFP) Police raided a number of addresses in barking, East London, on Sunday (Photo: PA) Abdul was well-known in his local community, with one mother claiming she confronted him for trying to brainwash her children with extremist religious views in a park. A neighbour said he immediately noticed the Arsenal away shirt Abdul was wearing after being shot dead by police outside the Wheatsheaf pub on Saturday night. He said: "I looked on Twitter and saw one of the terrorists who had been shot by police and he looked 90 per cent like my neighbour - he was even wearing the same Arsenal shirt that I had seen him in at 5pm that evening." A number of arrests have been made in the Barking area today (Photo: PA) Searches are still ongoing (Photo: REUTERS) Officers unleashed a hail of bullets after the trio used a hired van to mow down pedestrians on one of the capital's busiest bridges. They then leapt from the vehicle and began knifing people at random in bars and restaurants. According to The Times, Abdul is the only one of the Pakistani attackers positively identified so far. He lived in a block of flats with his wife and two young children which was raided by police early on Sunday. Ken Chigbo, 26, who lives in the same building, described him as "really sociable" and said the killer had invited him to a barbecue just last week. "I know he was quite a devout Muslim, I heard him talking about the Koran," said Mr Chigbo. "He would preach to young Muslims at the flat. "Sometimes up to six people quite regularly.” Twelve people have been taken into custody (Photo: PA) CLICK TO PLAY WATCH NEXTSecurity guards dance with the crowd at One Love THREE SUSPECTS SHOT AND KILLED BY ARMED POLICE An online CV suggests the attacker worked for Transport for London and took a course in teaching English as a foreign language. He also worked at fast-food chain KFC but quit around two years ago, according to a friend. "He began stopping his neighbours in the street and asking them if they had been saying their prayers and when they had been to the mosque." One man who knew the killer told the BBC he had become so concerned by his extremist views he rang the anti-terrorist hotline. He claimed the attacker was not arrested and was allowed to keep his passport. Locals in Barking said they had raised concerns about the killer (Photo: REUTERS) Erica Gasparri, 42, said she had also raised concerns. She said Pakistani terrorist Abdul would sit in a park opposite Northbury Primary School in Barking with two other men and talk to local children. The mum-of-three said he would offer the kids sweets in order to groom them and claimed to be "teaching them about religion".
  14. Having read this gem I wonder what would happen to the sikhs cleaved into two seperate communities by the total sealing of the border , No more visits to Nankana Sahib, Hasan Abdal etc , greater threat to sikhs in Pakistan especially since they have been excluded from the pakistan census . Is there anything we can do ? http://edition.cnn.com/2017/03/28/asia/india-pakistan-bangladesh-borders/
  15. For more than 50 years, the Central Govt has made Panjab give away more than 50 percent of its river water, for free, to the non riparian states of Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi. And it has costed Panjab more than 20 lakh crore rupees (£200 billion pounds). Today only 20 per cent of Panjab's water needs are being met by its own river water. In this film, Pritam Singh Kumedan, an expert and advisor to the Panjab Govt on riparian water issues, reveals, in an interview with UNITED SIKHS, how Panjab can stop giving away this water for free. Will the politicians, who Panjab is voting for on 4th Feb 2017, ensure that Panjab does not give away its water to non-riparian states anymore?
  16. Eight men have been jailed for up to 19 years for sexually exploiting teenage girls in Rotherham. The eight men were sentenced after the court heard they “sexualised” their victims and, in some instances, subjected them to acts of a “degrading and violent nature”. They were convicted on 17 October after the jury found them guilty of all 19 charges including rape and false imprisonment. One victim, now 27, told police and their MP and then home secretary David Blunkett about the abuse, before her family eventually moved to Spain to get away from the men. (Just shows you how how much the government cared/cares about these things....dally) The court heard this victim had gone to the police in 2003, saying she had been repeatedly raped by Sageer Hussain when she was 13. Judge Sarah Wright, who jailed Mr Hussain for 19 years, said he had conducted a “campaign of violent rape” against the vulnerable 13-year-old. The men jailed on Friday were Sageer Hussain, 30; Mohammed Whied, 32; Ishtiaq Khaliq, 33; Waleed Ali, 34; Asif Ali, 30; Masoued Malik, 32; Basharat Hussain, 40; and Naeem Rafiq, 33. The National Crime Agency has since said it is separately investigating more than 11,100 lines of inquiry relating to non-familial child sexual exploitation in Rotherham between 1997 and 2003. Professor Alexis Jay's 2014 inquiry, commissioned by Rotherham Borough Council, found at least 1,400 children were subjected to sexual exploitation in the town between 1997 and 2013. If that's the scale of things in just one town...God knows what's happening nationally. God know how many gullible Sikh girls have been involved too. Dally
  17. Seeing the failure of simranjeet mann to get elected or get any decent voter turn out in various elections. It is high time he stepped aside and let a populist Sikh pro-khalistan leader come on to the scene and take charge. We are in a world where politics are being shifted on their head and nationalist movements and leaders are coming to power like in the west. We have seen Sikhs of punjab are very pro-khalistan even after many genocides and schemes by the state to silence them by fear, they still come out in huge numbers such as rajoana protest and sarbat khalsa 2015. So it is up to the Sikh leaders to put aside their ego's and come on one platform and fight for the panth. We know badals are dogs who are only interested in hindustan and punjabiyat, they dont see votes in Sikh causes any more. But as brexit has proved the votes are still there its just there needs to be enough motivation, awareness and anger from the people to rise up against the status quo and change the system by electing a pro-khalistan party, who will have a democratic and political mandate to create a Khalistan.
  18. I'm sure most of you know the story of Bhai Lalo and living by honest means. I am trying to figure out which historical country it all occurred in, because I want to study the economy there (since Guru Nanak ji identified that Malik Bhago exploited Bhai Lalo's labour). This event occurred in Guruji's first udhasi, so it occurred between 1500-1506 in Saidpur (modern-day Eminabad, Pakistan). It couldn't have been part of the Mughal Empire since that didn't exist until ~20 years later. Can any of you figure out which historical country this took place in, because I'm lost?
  19. A Gurdwara In Pakistan Opens Its Doors For The First Time In Nearly 70 Years. The historical Gurudwara Sahib named after Bhai Biba Singh has been re-opened after over 70 years of closure, in which it was damaged by various earthquakes and abrasion. With ties dating back to Guru Gobind Singh Jis time, a Gurudwara was made by Maharaja Ranjit Singh when he discovered the location in Peshawar, Jogiwara. Sikhs are elated to have received the rights to the Gurudwara once again, after they began to work on restoration a few years ago. The Gurudwara was claimed and closed by the Pakistani Muslims, just before partition due to a dispute in which community held rights over the land, and at least one person each from the Sikh and Muslim community lost their lives in the feud. http://www.sikh247.com/uncategorized/video-beautiful-300yr-old-gurudwara-saved-re-opened-by-sikhs/
  20. PATHANKOT: Gunshots were heard near the Indian Air Force base in Punjab's Pathankot on Saturday morning in a suspected terror attack, authorities said. At least four terrorists launched an attack on the key military installation breaching the security of the base, sources said. Two of the terrorists have been killed. The gunfire started at around 3:30 am, authorities said, adding that an official car was used to launch the attack. The incident is being seen as connected to the hijacking of a police car a day ago. Gunfire is being heard from inside the air base and reports suggest the terrorists have been contained in a non-operational area of the facility. The National Security Guard has been called in, authorities said. http://www.ndtv.com/india-news/reports-of-firing-near-air-base-in-punjab-s-pathankot-1261432?pfrom=home-lateststories Terrorist had stolen Gurudaspur SP car yesterday.
  21. Pak body warns against 'Indian' intervention in Sikh affairs Amritsar: Reacting sharply to the "Indian" intervention in its internal religious affairs, Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) condemned Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee for making circumstances "difficult" for Pakistani Sikhs and suggested that it stay away from their matters. PSGPC's controversial general secretary Gopal Singh Chawla, who was in news in the recent past for his close relations with Jamaat-ud-Daawa chief Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of Mumbai's 26/11 terror attack, in a message posted on social media on Tuesday warned Makkar against meddling into the Sikhs affairs in Pakistan. Chawla was reacting to Makkar's reported statement of forming a panel to look into the allegations against former PSGPC president Mastan Singh, who was recently arrested under blasphemy charges. Mastan was arrested on December 18 by Nanakana Sahib police under various sections of the Pakistan Penal Code, including 23A and 295 A. Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has already come out in support of Mastan. "We are taking suggestions from legal experts and would even go up to the extent of moving international court to free Mastan Singh," DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK told TOI. He said Mastan had stopped Khalistan supporters from delivering venomous speeches against India from the religious stage during the recently concluded birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev at Gurdwara Nankana Sahib. Chawla had claimed that Khalistani voices were raised at much higher pitch than in earlier years. "Mastan Singh is one of us. We will get him out of jail, but will not allow SGPC to interfere in the affairs of Sikhs of Pakistan," he said in his video post. A day after Mastan's arrest, a large number of his supporters, including members of newly-constituted body Singh Style, held a meeting and later gheraoed the Nankana Sahib police station. They had also protested against the officials of Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB), including its chairman Siddique-ul-Farooq blaming him for grabbing gurdwara properties. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chandigarh/Pak-body-warns-against-Indian-intervention-in-Sikh-affairs/articleshow/50295045.cms

  23. http://www.asianews.it/news-en/Hindu-girl-tells-Supreme-Court-she-would-rather-die-than-convert-to-Islam-24358.html Hindu girl tells Supreme Court she would rather die than convert to Islam by Jibran Khan Seized by an influential Muslim, with the "political cover" of an elected official, 19 year old Rinkel Kumari launches a desperate appeal to the courts. “Justice is denied Hindus in Pakistan” and therefore asks to" kill me here "in the courtroom. The family, after reporting to police, forced to leave the village in Sindh. Each year there are 300 forced marriages and conversions Islamabad (AsiaNews) - "In Pakistan there is justice only for Muslims, justice is denied Hindus. Kill me here, now, in court. But do not send me back to the Darul-Aman [Koranic school] ... kill me". This is the desperate, heartbreaking outburst of Rinkel Kumari, a Hindu girl aged 19, who has entrusted her heartfelt appeal to the judges of the Supreme Court in Islamabad. Her story is similar to that of many other young women and girls belonging to religious minorities - Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Ahmadis - kidnapped by extremist groups or individuals, most of the time lords or local mafia, which convert them by force and then marry them . And that is what the girl said on 26 March, before the judges of the capital's court. The drama of Rinkel Kumari, a student of Mirpur Mathelo, a small village in the province of Sindh, began the evening of February 24: A handful of men seized her and delivered her a few hours later into the hands of a wealthy Muslim scholar, the man then called her parents, warning them that their daughter "wants to convert to Islam." Nand Lal, the girl's father, a teacher of an elementary school, accused Naveed Shah, an influential Muslim, of kidnapping his daughter. The man has the "political cover" provided by Mian Mittho, an elected National Assembly Member, suspected of aiding and abetting. After identifying the perpetrators of the kidnapping of his daughter, he was forced to leave the area of origin to escape the threats of people affiliated with the local mafia. The father found refuge and welcome in Gurdwara in Lahore, in Punjab province, with the rest of his family. As often happens in these cases, even the judiciary is complicit: a local judge ordered that the girl should be given to the Muslims, because her conversion is "the result of a spontaneous decision" and also stated the marriage was above board. A claim that was repeated on February 27, at the hearing before the court, after which the girl was "renamed" Faryal Shah. However, the story of Rinkel is not an isolated case: every month between 25 and 30 young people suffer similar abuses, for a yearly total of about 300 conversions and forced marriages. Hindu girls - but also Christian - who are torn from their family and delivered into the hands of their husbands / torturers. On March 26, she appeared before the judges of the Supreme Court in Islamabad, while the Hindu community waited with bated breath for the girl's statements in court. To avoid pressure, the presiding judge ordered the courtroom cleared and - later - the dramatic testimony was relayed: in Pakistan, "there is no" justice, "kill me here but do not send me back" to the kidnappers. Speaking to AsiaNews Fr. Anwar Patras, the Diocese of Rawalpindi, condemned "with force" the kidnapping and forced conversion. "The Hindus in Sindh - adds the priest - live a hard life. The reality is getting harder for them, they are forced to migrate because the state is unable to protect them and their property.
  24. PESHAWAR: Members of the Sikh community in Peshawar came under attack on Wednesday, with one killed and two injured in a firing incident. Following the attack, protestors took to the streets and burnt tyres blocking roads including the grand Trunk (GT) road in Peshawar. The demonstrators chanted slogans against what they said was the government's failure to protect members of minority communities and demanded the immediate arrest of those involved in the attack. The protestors tried to approach the Chief Minister's House but were stopped by security. Later the demonstrators headed towards the Governor's House. Police officials said unidentified armed men opened fire at members of the Sikh community when they were at Shabab market in the Hashtnagri area. DawnNews reported that Jasmot Singh, Bahram Singh and Manmit Singh were attacked when they were at their respective shops in the market. The victims were rushed to the Lady Reading Hospital immediately after the attack, where one died. Negotiations between members of the Sikh community and the administration was also underway. A large number of protestors shifted the body of the deceased Sikh man to GT Road and demanded that the government give them security. One member said that this is not the first time the community has been attacked and that the government should tell them an alternative if it cannot give them security. After a number of kidnappings from among the Sikh community in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and other tribal areas, some members have decided to wind up their shops in KP and relocate to Rawalpindi. In a report published earlier this week, one Sikh man Saroop Singh said, Hasanabdal is a much safer place for the Sikhs to live, as it is one of our holiest sites. Our families feel much secure there, living among other Sikhs in Gurdwara Punja Sahib. Peshawar is not safe, said Singh. http://www.dawn.com/news/1123648/gunmen-shoot-at-sikh-men-in-peshawar-market-one-dead
