Sikhs Being Harassed On Us Flights?


Recommended Posts

After the recent Detroit incident, I have heard about some instances of Sikhs being harassed on flights. I want to know if it has gone as far as asking a Sikh to remove his/her turban off. I am asking about domestic flights that travel within US, not international ones. Has anyone traveled by air within US in the past week or so and faced problems?

Since the Detroit bomber hid the chemicals in his underwear, I'm wondering if the day is far when the Firangis will want to search our kacheras.

Some of the more sheepish among us will gladly indulge them.

Seriously, though, we need a Khalsa Airlines to prevent these sorts of humiliations.

And there you have just hit the nail on the head or more appropirately on the underwear. This is precisely why search of dastar makes no sense at all unless they also search EVERYONE'S underwear.

Is there anything available for flights out of the UK? I plan to go India soon and would like to be prepared.

Thanks in advance.

No problem out of the UK - same as it was before except for extra checks if you're flying to the US. Obviously, don't try to hide a Kirpan on yourself. In the unlikely case that they ask to check your dastar, you have the right to a private room.

I have a question for those Sikhs who are living in USA/Canada/AUS etc and are very proud about the "democracy" of USA/Canada/AUS and other so called Western countries :

"

Where are the original inhabitants of North America ie the Red Indians ?

Has the USA and Canada "finished" the original inhabitants of North America or asimilated them ?

Haven't the present Americans who are in fact originally inhabitants from outside America mostly unwanted inhabitants of Europe finished the red Indian culture and everything connected with it ?

Haven't they made Cowboy Red Indian movies in which always the drunkard,womanising cowboy always wins ?

Haven't the Australians not done the same for the Aboriginals of Australia ?

Where are Maoris of New Zealand ?

Hasn't the USA killed or relocated every original inhabitant of Diego Garcia(An island in the Indian ocean( to build a military base there) ?

Why was the drug for swine flu patented just 2 months before the disease make it's presence?Similarly why is the Malwa region of Punjab now known as the cancer zone ?Hasn't India done the same in Punjab ?

"

If you know the answers to the above questions then why are you surprised at what is happening to immigrants in these countries ?The white race have already usurped everything from the original inhabitants of these countries by unfair means.How can they tolerate non whites and wont they do this to any other non white in future ?All the crimes by the so called western countries against the original inhabitants went unpunished,that is why the baahmanwaadi forces also did the same with Sikhs knowingly well that the western countries will remain silent at these massacres.

Why are we then surprised that these countries are not directly helping Sikhs in fighting against India as they have already done this themselves years ago .This is the same reason which is why these countries are silent on the massacre of Sikhs since 1984.

All this useless phrases of Human rights,universal brotherhood,equality,democracy etc are acceptable to these countries so long as you accept their agenda.

    • 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.
