Is there a way where no EU/UK sangat can watch it? Any web streaming???And any plans to extend it to North America/India/Australia/NZ????

Web streaming coming very soon. At the moment, you cant get it on TV in the Americas, or Australia but if the channel recieves worldwide support then i wouldnt rule out extending it accross the globe. These are still VERY early days.

The channel so far is doing a very good job, i liked gyani satnam singhs katha and the kirtan that gets played, hopefully soon more stuff will be hosted on the servers and newer kirtan etc will be played,

Could the channel try and get all of shromani ragi bhai balbir singhs kirtan - totally amasing raag kirtan - the best, and

:) Khalistan_Zindabaad jee, we definitely take what you say into account and its been great having your presence in the studio from time to time.

The Chaupai Sahib project will be advertised very soon once we have created the trailer for it. We are getting more support everyday so we will be up to full speed quite quick we imagine.

The keertan - yes we will definitely feature a wide range of keertani including Bhai Balbir Singh. Please do keep the suggestions coming in because we are going by the feedback we get and the posts that are posted on this forum.

Not sure if it has been suggested before but I think we should have a news slot, maybe about 7.00 pm or at 8.00 pm, need not be too long in the beginning maybe 5 or 10 minutes long where we have news relevant to the Sikhs but also other news that can be explained to the Sikhs , this could also include important dates and Gurpurbs coming up etc.

i think the channel are planning to do news time aswell, which would be great, but the sangat has to appreciate that alot of stuff gets monitored and censored hence im not sure how much into depth the news will go, as the channel cannot blatently say . . .

Badal is a joker who controlls akaal takht, the jathedaars listen to everything that badal ses and cannot go against him, the apparent panthic maryada is a complete joke and we have lots and lots of dodgy parcharaks that dont even follow the basic principles of sikhi and go around causing problems everywhere.

However im sure they will cover events and incidents that take place, its up to the sangat to provide the channel with the correct accounts of the news and what really happened instead of the biased and censored indian media.

Thank SIKH CHannel your doing a great job so faaarrr . . . C u soon.

It would be good if the channel, can organise discussion groups, around Sikh issues, both in the UK and abroad.

This could be with 2 to 3 Sikh professional and an audience discussion. issues like:

Sikhs and Legal or Legislation in the UK, to prevent discrmination against them.

What 'rights ' do Sikhs have.

Freedom of Religion vs freedom of Expression

Sikhs and human Rights both within India and outside (i.e. France, banning Turban)

Just some food for thought.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

This is a Benti, to all the Sikh Channel staff/managing directors,

Can you please stop broadcasting Miss Pooja's "Dharmik" Songs, and other Panjabi singers,

due to I feel WE are giving them publicity, and for example, if someone searchs for

Miss Pooja's Dharmik songs on YouTube or Google, they come up with her silly boycott songs

e.g. Desi Jatt... Instead of the Dharmik songs.

And when the channel was launched, I saw some mona (haircut-so-called Sikh), singing Dharmik geets, with a patka, atleast were a Dastaar.

Bhul Chuk Maaf.

Khalistan Zindabad.

Ignore all of their bad deeds. Only grasp the vital information from what they say.

please sikhchannel ji,can you play sampuran rehraas instead of the shortened version? If we wanted to listen to the short version we could watch ch 798.

also Channel Panjab did a program called "Raag Ratan". Can you do something similiar ? There were kirtanis coveing all raags from GGS. That would be brill.

But please sort out the rehraas.

thanks.

    • Same lol.   Why can't we post links now?
    • Yeah its coz of the link, I posted a video on the food thread and it said the video has to be approved. I thought I was on quality control, lol. 
    • @ADMIN  @S1ngh Why do my posts have to be approved by a mod now? Is it cause there was a link?
    • I think there are various different reasons for that. One being there are no consequences, which means no boundaries. Around 20 years ago people had to face consequences. With wanting to marry a non-Sikh, you were either disowned by your parents or you were forced to marry someone from a Sikh background. Now there are absolutely no consequences at all.   Much of it is to do with how the religions are practiced and preached. Muslims are constantly reminded of Hell, marrying non-Muslim means going to hell.  You see Sikhi isn't that different in that sense. Bani constantly reminds us of Narak and Dharam raj, and Guru Gobind Singh ji gave strict Hukkam of giving your daughters hand only to a Singh. But, the Sikhi which has been preached and practiced for long is a very wishy-washy Bollywood type of Sikhi.  Around 15 years ago, our community saw an explosion of love marriages, around this time very large numbers of Sikh kids started enrolling into further education, like uni etc   these things bring about cultural changes in immigrant communities, some positive, some negative.  With time, culture changes as well ..   In the old days after anand karaj the "reception party" was basically roti and then everyone went home. Some families used to have singers and dancers perform after the wedding in the house, men were allowed to sit and watch while women were strictly forbidden, so women would peak through the windows or from the roof tops. Years later it became acceptable for women to sit and watch the "entertainment". Eventually the entertainment became reception parties as we see in the west and people in Punjab started copying. Now people are having reception parties in nothing less than 4* venues, spending £100,000s,  we see brides openly drinking and getting drunk.  So you can see how culture changes ...  with this change peoples attitudes change.  Another interesting thing is here in the west the first South Asian community to push boundaries and make taboos acceptable are the Hindus!   then around 5 years later the Westernized, liberal kind of Sikhs copy the Hindus and then a few years later the rest of the community start following. Pakistanis normally catch up around 10 years later.  Its the order ... Homosexuality is now acceptable in the western Hindu community, so many gay Hindus are coming out and having gay mandir weddings and their families are supportive. I know a Gujju girl and her cousin is a lesbian and dating another Hindu lesbian, my friend sent me a photo of them! and both the families have accepted the couple. Currently the Sikh community, on this matter, is in the "debate phase"  give it another few years and it will be acceptable, and it will be the same Westernized, liberal, often successful and pagh wearing Sikhs that will be the first to make gay Sikh marriage acceptable, and then the rest of us will follow. Pakis will catch up around 10 years later.    Even in the paki community I've seen a lot of changes, some of the stuff that they do now wouldn't have been accepted 15 years ago or so. Apostasy among Muslims is on the rise, the women seem to be leading it!  
    • Parent 1. Obviously it depends on the content and the aim of the school. It would be good to have all aspects of Sikhi in one place which has authenticity. No too much pressure for them to learn and churn out material to sit exams. It would be more of quality rather than quantity . 2. Support level , to get a clear understanding what will be taught and the kids and parents expectations right from the beginning. 3. Yes Cost does matter. We have 100's of Gurudawara who should have a budget set aside to invest in the kids and our future generation. So ideas such as this can be researched and developed without thinking about funding. If the cost was reasonable I would pay plus as already mentioned if free its not taken seriously. 4. Self paced is good , but there needs to be a facility where questions can be answered. May be have one or 2 live sessions and the rest self paced.   Sangat 1. Yes there should be tiers , but I think most importantly the material should be authentic. As theres a lot of online material , which ones are good resources , average and bad . 2. May be set up some kind of certification structure for sikhi which over time is recognized and can be used by individuals to train/educate other members of the public. Like many certification courses , they cost but not too much ( starting form £10 plus) The task should be to get as many people doing the online courses as possible, then the price can be low and you will cover your costs. 3.It should be focused to all the public regardless of their background. Made available to businesses ,schools, colleges, universities as part of the establishments diversification program. You have organisations such as Basics of Sikhi , Rajoana TV , Sikh Network etc.. who are doing a brillant job of explaining about sikhi. Tap in to them , make it a collective journey as you may find , they may already have a structure , resources in place , they just need a proper online presence. Reach out to the Sangat who have gyan about Sikhi  via social media and Gurudawara , as there are many Scholars out their. Why is Basics of Sikhi successful , because they keep it simple , easy to understand and follow.  As a parent one of the biggest hurdles for kids is speaking punjabi. Having dialogue with their parents/grandparents . My younger one , hardly speaks punjabi , but what I have found is sikh stories helps a lot. May be have online live sessions where sangat speak punjabi , general punjabi so at least they can particpate in conversations with the elder generation.
