Sikhs are suppose to be warrior people To be good warrior soldiers you have to be good athletes an fighters
I have something that has been puzzling me for the last couple of days. Sikhs/Punjabi's and other peoples of subcontinental origins have lived in the UK for over half a century and yet there is this niggling question as to why there are so few Asian sportsmen. Most Asians are football fans in the UK and yet we see so few that make it professionally. There are a few reasons we usually here such as parents want their children to follow education or the ugly head of racism. The other reason is that Asians generally are not strong enough, physical enough or athletic enough to keep up with the other races. Now I can see that maybe overall, the Subcontinent is probably generally smaller and less physical but there is an anomaly to this the Sikh or Punjabi's in general. We are physically larger and stronger than the vast majority in India but the question is are we as strong and physical as the European man. Now this is what we are told by UK Football Establishment. But what we have seen with Satnam Singh and Sim Bhullar in the NBA tells us this is complete hogwash. If Punjabi's in the UK are not good enough to play against average sized white men and black men in professional football, how is it that two Punjabi's albeit one from Canada and one of India have made to the NBA where they have to play with and against the most athletically, physically developed people in the African American male. Your thoughts please.
Dear sangat Has anyone had any difficulty attending a sporting event like a football match or a cricket match or any other sporting event as an amritdhari? Has anyone been refused entry because of their kirpan and which places are the worst? Thank you
