I am very sad after reading the closed thread "questions" and really shocked to read posts that this forum belongs to this group or that group EVEN they know the group of ppls who started this forum and still controlling it. Reading Sarcastic replies and throwing all of your temper at us is not going to stop us providing sewa ^_^ nor it will change forum visitors mind because they know that all we do is Provide online space where sangat can come and discuss what's in their mind. Yes that's true we sewadars only provide you space rest is all working/running by common members. If you want to hate us then do it but please don't come and spread the hatred.

* Sikhsangat.com name is chosen by our veer bsbk (forum id) and he is not Akj or taksali or dodra or xyz jatha.

* Sikhsangat.com is started by two singhs and they weren't even amritdhari when they started it and they are still running it.. (Btw they are amritdhari now & they are not part of any jatha)

* One of our FIRST and most active moderator is programmer guy and he is not part of any jatha either and he is not amritdhari (just trying to make my point that we are 100% diverse)

* We have equal moderator power divided into all jathas and everyone has power to make any changes. Its upto them whether they wanna play the role or not :umm:

Sikhsangat.com is totally unbiased forum and wah

eguru je blessed us to have a forum and talk what's important to Sikh today. If still someone does not like us for some personal grudge, then a request from us to them is leave sikhsangat and it's thousand members alone. We are not blaming anyone, if someone got hurt by any forum sewadar then pls accept our apologies ^_^

Rock on SikhSangatooo ! :D

That makes two of us, i am very sad as well after reading that particular thread, I been on the forum from day 1. I am the programmer singh i guess. Waheguru knows i try my best and dont hold any grudge against anyone. I dont have any affiliation with any Jatha, ( never been to an Akj Rehinsabhai ).

We dont reveal our Identities so we can all have thought provoking discussions, without intimidating the forum members by our statues. All Activities of the moderators and Admins are monitored and questions are asked by fellow sewadars.

Its not an easy task to moderate as well as add new content to the site.

WE have Admins and mods from USA, Canada, UK, INDIA,and some other countries

This ensures that topics are moderated throughtout the day, but we are still humans and cant moderate everything.

Closing Topics

When we close topics, we do provide an explanation as to why we closed the topic, if someone requests it. Most of the topics that are closed , are the one that have drifted away from the origional question and have turned into fighting grounds between indviduals.

I personally dont think that the closure of

lengthy topics that are just being used for baseless arguements, need any justification.

Lastly, Feedback forum is available if at anytime members have any query or complaint.

well i know how some people can think this forum is dominated by 'AKJ Version of sikhi'


people shouldnt get upset over it.. or quit the forum.. but i do agree with Ryu guy that u shouldnt always 'accept' everything u read unless u understand it fully ..

anyway wat im tryin to say is.. this all goes back to the fact there are so many versions of the rehat.. but i think the first step is to understand our guru SGGS... we r just too involved in rehats (not that im saying they r not important.. )..

we know mostly all of the rehats and what they say.. but we dont know what a shabad means.. and i think there is somethin wrong with that.. thats where we lack..

although in the odd instance i may not agree with one or two postings, this site is nice . The admins are doing selfless service off their own back for all of us, i respect that and wish you all the best, not only have you given a platform for sangat, your given freedom to talk, this is a much cherished privelidge . The sangat which has been attracted here (excluding this dirty soul ) is pretty much good there are a lot of humble nice people whom i have lernt a few things in my short time here.

Thank you all and admins dont worry about few people complaining your seva is really good

    • Too add another piece of the puzzle of what apnay experienced during the colonial period (as requested in the OP).         It’s easy to be mistaken by this picture of a gentle, stooped, grandfatherly 95 year-old. He was in fact one of the most feared and dangerous men in British India. So feared was he by the British that, shackled in irons, he was held for 16 years in near solitary confinement 1000kms off the shore of India for fear of the revolution he tried to spark. This is Sohan Singh Bhakna, founder of the revolutionary Ghadr Party. When India joined WW1, every young Punjabi man was vigorously encouraged to join the Indian Army; British officials, Indian nobility, Indian district bureaucrats, even the Indian National Congress and Mahatma Gandhi joined forces to promote recruitment. Opposing that consensus was a vociferous, violent energetic group, operating from North America called the Ghadrs, or revolutionaries. Sohan Singh Bhakna became active in the early nationalist movement before he joined the small pioneering stream of men who moved out of Punjab to the Pacific Northwest in the early 1900s where he worked in lumber mills. America wasn’t colonising India but there was no lack of racism and discrimination toward the ‘Hindoo’ labourers and Bhakna rapidly joined the early Indian labour movement. He founded the Ghadr party with other North American Indians who agitated for the overthrow British colonial authority in India by means of an armed revolution. The Ghadrs viewed the Congress-led Independence movement as soft and unambitious so adopted a harder stance with their principal strategy to entice Indian soldiers into armed revolt against the British taking particular advantage of the vulnerability of the First World War. Their revolutionary plans included smuggling arms to the passengers of the Komagatu Maru on their return to India, making overtures to the German Embassy in the US, pumping out revolutionary messages to Indian soldiers via their prolific pamphleteering. Their most seditious and dangerous plot was to coordinate violent armed revolutionary activity with Indian soldiers in SE Asia. Alarmed, the British promptly arrested Sohan Singh as he tried to enter India in 1914 and tried for conspiracy. Found guilty, he was sentenced to death. A sentence later commuted to life imprisonment in The Andaman Islands, 1000kms off the shore of India. There Sohan Singh settled into a period of revolt and activism with repeated hunger strikes to improve the conditions for his fellow prisoners. Both in the Andamans and back in India where he was imprisoned until 1930 he carried out hunger strikes for Sikh prisoner’s religious rights, the rights of lower caste Indian prisoners and in support of Bhagat Singh. By the outbreak of the Second world war, Sohan Singh had been released 10 years and was an active and fearsome political voice for the Communist Party. War brought new rules, and the Indian Government arrested and interred the now 70-year-old Sohan Singh for 3 more years in an Indian jail lest he revive his violent tendencies during a time of wartime vulnerability. He lived another 20 years after Indian Independence and the Partition, a constant and prolific voice in early Indian politics. He died in 1968, ending a phenomenal life of 98 years, in his home district of Amritsar. -Amandeep Madra https://barusahib.org/general/sohan-singh-bhakna-the-man-who-shook-the-britishers-with-fear/
    • I've worked around a lot of them over the years. For all their faults, none of them (that I've met) seem remotely concerned with the colonial thing, they seem too shrewed and self-serving for that. It's some western raised apnay that do this.    
    • I agree that the situation is improving among western born Sikhs, but I don't think there has been any significant growing consciousness in that regard among Indian Sikhs.
    • You're right, but I don't see hordes of apnay queuing up to join in, like before. We do have a ground level movement that questions the past in the UK like never before. 'No more sepoys'. The whole colonial period is under scrutiny across the board these days.  Interestingly, this is part and parcel of a growing consciousness in broad areas amongst Sikhs. Of course we will have opportunists and the gullible who struggle to put the past in proper context, but then that just makes the job of de-brainwashing apnay all the more important. We might not be able to educate every last person, but we can make a big difference, enough to reign in the confused.  
    • This is no big mystical revelation imho.  European whites fighting amongst themselves has been on the cards for ages. It's the natural state of things if long term history is anything to go by.  The only good point right now is that we don't hordes of our own illiterate pendu peasants lined up to do goray's dirty work for peanut money that was stolen off them in the first place (like in the previous conflicts with krauts/nazis).  Shasters will be/are important, but anyone who doesn't recognise how important ashtars i.e. projectile weapons like guns, canons, missiles etc. are today is a bewakoof of major proportions. Those of us in the western diaspora: abled bodied young men and women, get ready to defend your own community in the potential face of a rise of racism. It's been done before. Plus the indigenous nazis in many western disaporas have now been reinforced by 'refugee' eastern european ones.  It doesn't take a genius (or a mahapurash sant) to figure out what we may have to face.
