  1. Should he become the leader of the country? Do you like him? Is he good enough?
  2. As I'm banned, much of what I've said before, say now and will say in the future, gets lost or ignored in the guest Gupt section. But, those of you that have taken the time to read some of my earlier messages here will recall 2 things I've said which tie up nicely to the point of this thread. Firstly, you may recall how a Canadian Sikh made a thread a while ago on the main page in which he asked if the 'Sikhs converting to Muslim probem' really was as bad as the UK Sikhs on this forum make out. As I couldn't reply directly to that thread I wrote a reply on this Gupt section in which I articulated that the answer was 'no'. I stated that the UK muslim conversion problem was only about a tenth of the size of Canada and America's massive Christian conversion problem but the UK's problem was magnified because the UK Sikhs, unlike the Canadian and American Skhs, are notoriously pessimistic and negative, perenially seeing the glass as half empty and habitually seeing their problems as earth shatteringly big. Secondly, you may recall that I once wrote about a few Canadian Universities that actually teach 'How to convert Sikhs to Christianity' as a full-time B.A. Degree course. I had obtained the actual syllabus for each semester of the course and I went into great detail how the course covered such subjects as "gaining the trust of the Sikhs" before going for the kill (mentioning Jesus). I stated how the course gave its students detailed knowledge about first visiting Gurdwaras as a 'friend of the Sikhs'......asking questions about the Gurus and Sikhi in order to give the impression that you are interested in Sikhi....but to NEVER mention the word Jesus until you had built up that level of trust a few weeks / months later. And so this brings me to the point of this thread. There is a video doing the rounds of some black girls in Canada speaking pure Punjabi. The video is doing the rounds among the Sikhs because the Sikhs feel honoured and proud that these girls had learned our language so well. Everyone is posting comments stating what a wonderfull thing it was nd how these girls should be role models for our own Sikh children. Call it the typical Sikh gullibility, un-padhness or whatever but nearly all, in their excitement, have either not heard or chosen to not hear, the bit in the video in which the girls state their actual reason for learning Punjabi. The state they learned it because it was a tool to help "save the Sikhs" and bring them closer to the 'Messiah", i.e convert them to Christianity. This is all very very frightening stuff. Frightening not only at the extent the Christians will go to convert us but also in the way that we as a people are generally very very un-padh and gullible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IS0FViVbViw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IS0FViVbViw
  3. This is not a thread to start bashing any castes or areas of Punjab so please don't make it into that. Generally speaking there has been a mass influx of backward punjabi pendus in Canada the last 5-10 years and I think it's hurting the community as a whole. The Sikh community in Canada has always been looked upon as well integrated and highly educated. However, recent trends are not good. These backward uneducated pendus are absolutely disgraceful in their conduct. The majority of them came here via fake marriage sponsorship where 2 families make a "deal" where you marry our person from India and our person in Canada will marry one of yours in India. I was born in the 80s and I know with my parents and others from the 70's, 80's, and 90's, they had an appreciation for what this country has given them in terms of opportunity. Thankfully the 2nd generation has educated themselves well and gotten into highly professional positions. However, these backward pendus today have no appreciation and bring their desi garbage here. There are not people you can reason with. I saw one guy who was clearly drunk as a skunk embarrassing himself. I tried to reason with him but he threatened me and said 'do you know my uncle is the sarpanch? We have 10 acres of land. I'm the son of a jatt, <banned word filter activated> off'. As a community what can we do about this to avoid being labelled as a backwards community that cannot integrate in this country?

    Canadian Sikhs

    Canada has now officially the largest Sikh community outside of India - 500,000. The UK is not far behind. The US Sikh community has grown to 250,000.
  5. Hi there everyone, sangat in Orangeville have officially setup up a gurdwara in a small town called Orangeville, Ontario Canada under the name of Mata Gujari Ji Sikh Temple. Just trying to get the word out to everyone hopefully some individuals live in the Dufferin county area that use this site. The Gurdwaras does not have a Nishan Sahib yet, we have to get permission from the town to be able to put at the front of the property, as we are in the process of trying to change the zoning as well. Zoning change should not be an issue due to the neighbouring properties beside the Gurdwara is all commercial. If you live in the towns of Orangeville, Grand Valley, Shelburne, Mulmur, Melancthon, Amaranth, Mono, East Garafraxa, or even the north part of Caledon, the gurdwara is open everyday, might be locked after 9pm, but granthi ji lives there so theres always someone there. The address is 304 Broadway ave Orangeville, Ontario and the parking is in the back.
  6. WJJK WJKF I would like some info on moving to Canada. Im looking to move there from UK and wanted to know where would anyone recommend is the best area. I wanted my kids to go to a Sikh school so im basically looking at that as my main place to stay along with good Sikh Sangat for my family. Which Sikh schools are generally rated highly? thanks

    Halal food

    Guru Granth Sahib forbids eating of halal or any meat killed according to ritual beliefs. Muslims have successfully lobbied to get most of the restuarants even in Sikh populated areas to serve only Halal food. However, it hurts me to see keshdhari Sikhs sitting in Shwarma place and other Pakistani joints happily eating Halal food. When you talk to them, they plead ignorance. These are the same Sikhs who tend to lecture other mona Sikhs about keeping kesh. Why are they not following the tenants and protesting about the creeping Halal everywhere? Our school where 50% of the students are Sikh now serve Halal hot dogs because of only 5% Muslims. None of the Sikhs care about this. Muslims are using Halal certification to build mosques in every street and actively convert people, but use Sikhs are happy eating Biryani! When I bring this up in Gurdwara they say we should only be vegetarian, when all the committee members eat meat and close to 90% Sikhs are non-veg (also Gurbani does not prohibit meat). I am so confused at this hypocrisy. Anyone agree with me?

  9. I already did a topic on this before, lets do one again. I think we all seen India gov throw a hissy fit during Justin Treadue visit. Panjabis are gaining more political power in Canada/Uk, and India can't stomach it since they will speak out against indian crimes. They didn't think kidnapping Jaggi would bring this much attention , but it did because Sikhs politicans are overrepresented in western countries. Also this 2020 referendum joke has rattled india, they've been pressuring Canada/UK to cancel 2020 rallies, but since having peaceful rallies is a given in western countries , India gov can't seem to get it through their thick ape skulls. In the 3rd world sh^thole of India, Mob violence, corrupt cops , torture , kidnappings , corrupt politicians are still a thing in 2018. These monkeys can't even give justice to 84 given all the evidence, not even that, any number of small public cases are usually thrown out if a rich person is at fault . Indian men are also pretty dirty creeps. They all stare at women , especially white women and give off rape alarms. Believe it or not but Haryana is the biggest sh^thole state in India, not Bihar , Rajistan , Up or any other cr@p states , nope ,it's haryanan. Quint did a story on crimes against women in Haryana , they interviewed young kids , teens , old people and adults. And shockingly , all of them said that women are at fault if they get raped. They said, women who wear provocative cloths are asking to be raped. Mind you that,Kids and teens holds these views. It's 2018 and India is still a nasty sh^thole. People still poop in streets, have low iq and have religious violence in 2018. Lets wait another 50 yrs and see if these apes evolved. I'm soo pissed that we Panjabis have to live in this utter nightmare of a country which is worse than many african and middle east hell holes. Our 3 state lobby royally screwed up in 47.

    Diaspora relations

    Hi guys, I have some questions about diaspora relations. In Canada in general do Tamils and Hindus in general get on with Sikhs or is it neutral or is it a negative relation. Secondally and finally , in the UK do Hindus get on with Sikhs /neutral/negative. Also is there rivalry between Hindus , Sikhs or Muslims and if so are Hindus and Sikhs on the same side or are they separate. Thanks
  11. The shooter who killed two people and injured 12 others in Toronto on Sunday night has been identified as Pakistani origin Faisal Hussain. Hussain's name was released by the Ontario Special Investigations Unit on Monday due to "the exceptional circumstances of this tragic incident," BBC News reported. Muslim terrorist Hussain, 29, was found dead after the shooting, Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit told CBC News. The Ontario Special Investigations Unit said that six investigators and three forensic investigators are investigating the gunman's death, CBC News reported. Police are still investigating Hussain 's terror network. The shooting began on Sunday night at about 10 p.m, according to the Toronto Star. An exchange of gunfire took place in Toronto's Greektown neighborhood of Danforth. Muslim terrorist Hussain was found dead on Danforth Avenue, according to the publication.
  12. PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BEFORE YOU READ MY RESPONSE: MY RESPONSE: Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! The image of Sikhs is being deliberately tarnished by the Indian governments influence. The government is mad that Sikhs are starting to gain power outside India and want to do everything they can to keep us under their control. This idea of "Sikh Extremism" is so overblown, there was a recent study in the UK which showed that Sikh Extremism isnt even a threat. The concept of "Khalistan", a nation run on Sikh values by Sikhs, isnt something thats "extreme", its a very reasonable thing for a community to work towards, and even the Guru himself told Sikhs to be sovereign and remain independent. Even if we go back to the 1800's in Maharaja Ranjit Singhs Sikh Kingdom, we can see a liberal and secular society were minorities are accepted, and there wasn't even any death penalty. This is just a small taste of what Sikhs can contribute to the world. On the topic of Jagmeet Singh, its obvious that the Indian government wants to destroy the reputation of this Amritdhari Sikh who is allways try to push to have the 1984 Sikh Genocide officially recognized. Jagmeet Singh represents the next generation of Sikh politicians, and is seen as a role model in the Sikh youth. The Indian government is throwing false accusations at him, denied his visa, spread a lot of fake news, and they are trying to do everything they can to stop a decent minded Sikh from becoming elected, just look at the drama they caused in India when the Canadian PM visited, or the non stop hit pieces and character assassinations they do. When it comes to Baba Jarnail Singh Bhinranwale, there is proof that the Indian government pre-planned the attack on Darbar Sahib, and were planing it even before Bhindranwale entered Akal Takth. During their genocide, they attacked multiple Gurdwara's. and even destroyed the Sikh Reference Library and stole so many precious Sikh texts, some even written by the Gurus themselves. To this day the government refuses to apologize for its instigation's on genocide, and still refuses to at least give back the stolen Sikh texts. Its so obvious the 1984 genocide was engineered to destroy Sikhi.
  13. What are your thoughts on this recent article? https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/sikh-separatists-in-canada-drawing-ire-in-indian-media-before-trudeau-visit-1.3792889 Here are my thoughts: You know you are on the wrong side of history, when you attack freedom of speech. "Sikh relgious sucessionism"? LoL! Have they ever read Sikh history or Gurbani? Its common sense to those who are educated on Sikhi that the Sikh Panth is meant to be distinct from others and be independent. The Khalsa is literally meant to be a sovereign army and institution all in one, that only answer's to the Guru, that by itself isnt legal in another country, and its a pretty obvious hint that the Guru clearly taught Sikhs to be independent, but of course. But of course all this means nothing becuase most "Sikhs" in India dont support it, which must mean its a radical idea, even if its backed up by history and bani... Of course its going to come up coincidentally when a Prime Minister visits India, what better time to attack Sikhs. One could make the argument that the Indian government lets Hindu right wing national movements flourish, and there's actually proof that India got a German official to spy on Sikhs. Or what about that time that that. If you wanna talk about state sponsored terrorism. there's a lot of accusations India has gotten, but the problem with them is that they dont care. Read article: German official charged with spying on Sikhs for India : https://www.thelocal.de/20160920/german-official-charged-with-spying-on-sikhs-for-india India State Sponsored Terrorism: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State-sponsored_terrorism#India Amarinder Sengh is a meme at this point, he will say anything to tarnish the reputations of Sikhs abroad. He is salty that international Sikhs are making it, and that him and his third world government are losing their power over the Sikh community. At this point, who cares what that ladoo has to say? its obvious hes doing this as part of his personal smear campaign.

    Move to Canada

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Sangat ji, I have been considering moving away from the UK. Mainly just had enough of the place. I am alone. No family at all nor am I married. I am not educated either. Has anyone got any experience on the emmigration process for someone in the UK wanting to move to Canada who may be or has been in a similar situation as myself? I was there this time last year and saw that there is a lot of Sangat there. It's clean, peaceful and generally seems like a great move especially for someone that just wants to get up and leave everything in the UK behind. I had the chance to speak to someone there who has moved from London and is working in banking/finance but he actually married a Canadian Singhni and was under 30 years of age when he applied for his PR (permanent residence) so it was a little easier for him. Any ideas, feedback, information or suggestions would be much appreciated. Akaal!

Ang 81, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee The art of writing Gurbani has vanished from the Sikh households. We are reliant upon the printing firms to publish Gurbani for us. Needless to mention, this has led to desecration of our scriptures in the recent years. The pristine tradition of writing the holy text was started and prescribed by the Gurus themselves. Guru Arjun Dev Ji had Bhai Gurdas Ji write the first Adi Granth, while many Gursikhs present in the attendance of Guru Gobind Singh Ji also penned Gurbani. These Gursikhs included Baba Deep Singh Ji and Bhai Mani Singh Ji. No wonder, they were amazingly enlightened souls! The objective of the workshop is to introduce our youth to the beauty of writing Gurbani with our own hands and instruments. There are only ten spaces availbale for this event.

  21. A man has been charged with assault after police say he ripped a turban off another man’s head in downtown Toronto. The alleged incident happened at Yonge-Dundas Square at 5:45 p.m. on Wednesday. Police say a 35-year-old man was sitting in the square with his family when a man approached the victim from behind and tore off his turban. The suspect proceeded to make derogatory comments and fled the scene. People in the area who witnessed what happened called police. Robin Kelly Skani, 31, of no fixed address, appeared in court on Thursday. He is being held until his bail hearing on Friday.

  24. Canada apologizes for 1914 rejection of Asian migrant ship Prime Minister Justin Trudeau formally apologizes, Wednesday, May 18, 2016, in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, for a 1914 Canadian government decision that barred most of the passengers of the Komagata Maru from entering the country. Canadian officials refused to allow the Indians in, even though they were British subjects just like every other Canadian of the time. The chartered vessel was carrying 376 Indian passengers, nearly all of them Sikhs, bound for what they thought would be a new life in Canada. (Adrian Wyld/The Canadian Press via AP) The Associated Press By ROB GILLIES Posted: May. 18, 2016 8:00 am Updated: May. 18, 2016 9:38 pm TORONTO (AP) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized in Parliament on Wednesday for a government decision in 1914 to turn away a ship carrying hundreds of South Asian immigrants. The Komagata Maru from Hong Kong arrived off Vancouver only to have almost all of its 376 passengers, nearly all of them Sikhs from India, denied entry due to immigration laws at the time. The passengers were hoping to challenge Canadian immigration law, which refused entry to any Indians who had not arrived in Canada via a continuous journey from the Indian mainland nearly impossible at the time. The law was seen as a measure to stymie Indian arrivals. Officials refused to allow the Indians in, even though they were British subjects just like every other Canadian of the time. After 20 passengers who had previously lived in Canada were allowed to disembark, the ship was turned away. The ship was eventually sent to Calcutta, and least 19 people were killed in a skirmish with British soldiers. Others were jailed. "Canada's government was, without question, responsible for the laws that prevented these passengers from immigrating peacefully and securely," Trudeau said. "For that, and for every regrettable consequence that followed, we are sorry." Opposition leaders also apologized. New Democrat leader Thomas Mulcair called it "racism, plain and simple." A spectator in the public gallery hollered out a Punjabi slogan that signals happiness after Trudeau spoke. Former prime minister Stephen Harper apologized at an event in British Columbia in 2008, but members of the Sikh community have long said an apology should be offered formally in Parliament. There are more than a million Canadians of South Asian descent. Trudeau had pledged to make an apology during his election campaign last year. He noted in Parliament on Wednesday that Canada's current defense minister, Harjit Sajjan, once commanded the reserve regiment that turned back the Komagata Maru and thanked him for helping the Komagata Maru incident get national attention. "Before entering political life, the minister was the commanding officer of the British Columbia Regiment Duke of Connaught's Own the same regiment that once forced out the Komagata Maru," Trudeau said to applause. "A century ago, the minister's family might well have been turned away from Canada. Today, the minister sits beside us, here, in this House." Sajjan tweeted that he was humbled and grateful and he thanked Trudeau.
