  1. Its well known that muslims have a big divorce rate in the uk at the moment. That has been steadily growing for the last 20 years or so at a fast pace. Thankfully Sikhs are nowhere as near the spiralling rates of failed marriages in the suleh communities of the uk. There are definantly lessons to be learned from the failures of muslims and there marriages. But what is the reasons for high divorce rate in this particular community you may ask? Afterall its these people who like to think of themselves as religious and into their faith.Yet they are divorcing like no tommorow. One of the reasons is that they have a a high degree of arranged marriages. Many are not given much choice of who they marry. Essentially they are marrying to incompatible partners which is a recipe for disaster. This is not the fault of the people themselves but is the fault of the matchmakers who arrange these marriages without much thought and attention to finding a suitable spouse. I know this may be something that Sikhs need to look into. There is nothing wrong with arranged marriage. But the girl and boy should be given plenty of time and choice of who they would like to marry. Many suleh parents are very pushy and strict They dont give their kids much say. Its all about marrying some cousin back in pakistan to get a visa stamp or other family ties. Thankfully Sikhs give their kids more choice and support in these matters and help find the most suitable match. Hence our rates of divorce are less. But we can still do more. Hope our youth dont get forced and coerced like many muslims do when it comea to marriages otherwise we could be going down the same path aa them. WJKK WJKF
  2. I just read the RASE report and I think that not only should every Sikh in the UK read it, those in other western diaspora communities (i.e. Canada and the US) should read it too, so they can be aware of such things taking place in their own countries of residence and also be informed about the persistent inaction by English authorities in dealing with this matter over decades. The link below will take you to a site from which you can request your own copy via email (for free). Here's a taste: http://smartcentreproject.co.uk/rase-report/
  3. http://www.newindianexpress.com/world/2018/nov/27/pakistani-men-sexually-exploiting-british-sikh-girls-study-1903887.html According to this new report,UK Sikh women began to elope with Pakistani men since the 60's. This would mean the current batch of Sikhs in the UK are mostly the spawn of whores. No wonder the girls are mega sluts and the boys effeminate drunks. Discuss.

    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

  8. I heard some places around the uk which were doing nagar kirtan for more than decade have stopped doing them for vaisakhi. The east london one used to have a huge procession with 15,000-20,000 attendances that starting from rosebury gurdwara in manor park but has stopped for past 2 years now. Any one know what the reasons are?
  9. Why is the uk so unsafe. All we hear and see on the news is stabbings, murders, gun crime,drugs. I feel the uk is getting worse and worse. The youth are out of control. There is no community spirit or cohesion. Theres a huge gang culture. It just seems like a very unpleasant place to live. Is it something in out diet that is making us so bad? It is not like this in other countries. Everyone is much friendlier and calmer. Yet the kids today seem full of rage, anger and hate. I was on train the other day and could hear the kids talking so much gandh out of their mouths. Like they have not been taught to speak with respect and lack decent everyday manners. What is causing the youth to behave ao badly. All you see them selling drugs starting fights or general anti social behaviour. Having been to spain and italy. It is nothing like this.

  11. https://www.nhs.uk/news/cancer/ultra-processed-foods-linked-cancer/ I think most of us would not be surprised by this, but definitely a good reminder to avoid unnatural foods Ultra-processed foods linked to cancer Thursday February 15 2018 Examples include mass-produced breads and cakes, snacks and sweets, fizzy drinks, and ready meals. Researchers in France studied the diets of more than 100,000 people for 7 years. They found small increases in the overall rate of cancer and breast cancer after the menopause in those who had the highest proportion of ultra-processed food in their diet. But because of the wide range of foods included in the ultra-processed category, it's difficult to establish which specific foods might be responsible for the increased cancer risk, and why. The increased risk could be caused by eating more high-sugar, high-fat processed food.

  15. I've decided to hand in my notice at work and focus on myself for a little while. I'm a UK born and raised mid 20s male. I'm in search of "home". I can't stand the UK anymore... The weathers pure shieet and the people aren't much better. The only thing tying me down is my family and the comforts of British life. I've decided I'm moving to Punjab for at least 6months. I'll be living in Amritsar just around the corner from Darbar Sahib, renting an apartment. I need the time away from work family everything here to focus on myself and hopefully build on my sikhi. Does anyone have any advice for me? Any recommendations? Stuff to pack take with me? Places to visit? Thank you in advance. I have an OCI visa. Basically on my visa photo I was mona short hair clean shaven etc. I've since grown my Kesh and now wear a dastar. My passport photo is a current photo. Do you think this could be an issue? Should I renew my OCI visa because of the change of appearance? I imagine this will be a lengthy process... Anyone done this? Thank you sangat ji in advance. Hope to hear from you guys soon wish me luck ha

  17. Recent cases have shown white chavy males are chucking acid on people in london. Racist Whites used to look down on ethnic minorities used to have this snobbish racist attitude towards brown/desi and middle eastern countries saying how backward they and their communities are. Not any more looks like the scummy evil yobs of the white community are just as bad if not worse and need to be dealt with very harshly. Most of the recent victims seem to be asian muslim people done by black or white attackers.. London met police are hiding the stats.

  19. Ilford shooting: Shocked Muslims help bloodied man who came into mosque after being shot and stabbed Some worshippers thought there had been another terror attack Mark Chandler a day ago Crime scene: A police cordon outside the centre Noreen Qayyum Shocked Muslims leaving prayers rushed to help when a bleeding man who had been shot and stabbed ran into a mosque saying he had been attacked. The victim, described as a clean-shaven Sikh man, staggered into the Ilford Community Centre on Eton Road just before 2pm on Monday, bleeding from his shoulder. Those at the centre called for an ambulance and police to help the wounded man. Bashir Chaudhry, chairman of the mosque, said some people feared another terror attack had taekn place after people were mowed down early on Monday morning outside a mosque in Finsbury Park. But he said worshippers reacted calmly to the situation. He told the Standard: "Someone walked into the centre and he was bleeding very badly. "When I spoke to him he said 'I've been attacked'. "I immediately called the police and ambulance. It's what anyone else would have done." Mr Chaudhry said the man then left the centre and he followed him out to a nearby house and waited for emergency services to arrive. Police: A probe is underway (Noreen Qayyum) "I tried to help him," he said. "At that time people were leaving the mosque and they saw him and he was very badly hurt. "He was bleeding from the back of his neck and his shoulder and from his face." "Some people misunderstood what had happened," he said. "They thought somebody had attacked the worshippers, that the mosque had been attacked, which is not right." "With what's been going on in Finsbury Park and other places, people are concerned really." A spokesman for the Met said: “Police in Redbridge are dealing after a man was shot and stabbed. “Officers were called at 2.02pm on Monday, 19 June, to Eton Road, Ilford, to reports a man armed with a knife. “Attending officers found a man in a residential address suffering from stab and gunshot wounds. “He was taken to an east London hospital where his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.” Police said there had been no arrests so far and the incident is not being treated as terror-related. It is believed the victim knew his attack, police said. =================================================================== I wonder if any essex ./ east london Sikhs know more about who the victim was and who the attacker is or his racial religious background. If this is found to be an anti-sikh hate crime it will help Sikhs physically wake up and form self defense groups and maybe to get govt funding for resources into protecting the community better.
  20. Hi everyone, I am a singh who was born and raised in America. I am considering moving to Edinburgh, Scotland. I wanted to ask the UK Sikhs on this board about what the Sikh community in Scotland is like. 1. Are there a decent amount of Sikhs in Scotland? 2. What is the Sikh community in Scotland like? (In other words: is it made up mostly of new immigrants, or Sikhs who immigrated long ago? Are the Sikhs there more from a rural background or an urban background? Are the Sikhs there generally religious or secular? Are there a decent number of Gurdwaras?) 3. Are there significant Sikh communities outside of Scotland (in Northern England) that are a reasonable commute from Scotland? 4. How difficult/expensive is it to travel from Scotland to the parts of the UK with large Sikh populations (London, West Midlands)? I am worried about moving to a place where I will feel isolated. It would be good to know what I can expect in Scotland in terms of the local Sikh community.

  22. Sikh24 reported that Gurdwaras were opening their doors to Manchester jihadi attack victims, and also Sikh cabbies were giving free rides to victims. No biggie, right? Wrong. It seems that at least some Muslims and their sympathizers were upset at highlighting this fact. Check out this tweet by a Sikh about Sikh cabbies giving free rides: https://mobile.twitter.com/SinghLions/status/866930974369632256/photo/1 @dineshjoshi70 applauds @SinghLions and says: Gurudwaras worldwide are messengers of humanity . So are the Sikhs and so do some others. But not Twitter user @ShazU_91. She asks why identify the religion of the good samaritans?: https://mobile.twitter.com/ShazU_91/status/866937798686912512?p=p and: https://mobile.twitter.com/ShazU_91/status/866941338742378496?p=p Actually what really pisses off Miss ShazU_91 is that normal people appreciate Sikhs' warm and giving personalities and the fact that they are not bombing average British people, and people are figuring out the difference between Sikhs and Muslim, even people like Katie Hopkins in her latest article: What Miss ShazU_91 wants is a united colored peoples front where whenever the latest Islamic terror attack occurs, everybody who isn't white (West Indians, Chinese and other orientals, aboriginals from various places, Indians including Sikhs, Pakistanis, middle-easterners, Africans, North Africans, Latinos, etc.) get lumped into a single category, and no further distinctions are made. And I don't think we should give her what she wants.
