Taxi driver shot in California

Fiancee commits suicide as body is brought to Amritsar

Pawan Kumar

Dabaurji (Amritsar), July 7

“What have I got by sending my son abroad. I have lost him forever”, said the inconsolable Mrs Kashmir Kaur, mother of 24-year-old Gurpreet Singh, a taxi driver who was shot dead by an American of African origin in California on July 3.

He was cremated at Sultanwind, village, near here, today.

Gurpreet Singh had gone to America about five years ago in search of greener pastures.

His fiancee, Amandeep Kaur (22), a resident of Darshan Avenue (in Dabourji), unable to bear the shock took the extreme step and committed suicide one day after the murder.

There were heart-rending scenes in the house of Gurpreet when his body was brought here at 3 pm today. His body was brought from New Delhi, where it had arrived last night from California, by his father and some relatives. He is survived by his parents, a younger brother and a sister.

The incident has put a big question mark over the security of Punjabis abroad. The incident had made headlines in newspapers in America, said Mr Rashpal Singh, cousin of the deceased while talking to The Tribune.

He said the accused American was travelling in Gurpreet’s cab. He refused to give the fare. An altercation followed. In a fit of anger the accused shot Gurpreet dead.

The famil

y members of Gurpreet urged the Chief Minister to take up the matter with the External Affairs Ministry to ensure the security of NRI Punjabis there (America) and to arrest the accused person as soon as possible.

Amandeep Kaur, before taking the extreme step, sent the family members to the gurdwara. When alone in the house she took out the licensed pistol of her father and shot herself in the temple.

She left a suicide note in which she said she was taking this extreme step with the hope of meeting Gurpreet in the ‘next birth’.

It is learnt that her engagement was done with the photograph of Gurpreet and both mostly talked on the telephone.

Rashpal Singh said the Indian government must take a firm stand with the USA for the safety of Sikh NRIs there, as Sikhs have mostly become the target of hate crime after the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center.

Hanjee suicide is BIG sin according to sikhi.... But Would Rab jeee will consider the situation and think of it as not a sin? Like..i mean she couldn't bear the pain and took her own life in very hurry decision.. If she had waited for like a week or so..she might changed her mind.. But anyway it doesn't matter now.. so.. Do u/we still think that she did the sin by taking her own life as seeing her condition/situation..? :D

I have done some studying on this issue before. And basically here is what happens. Guru sahib has written a destiny on our forehead... to a certain extent. Such as where we ought to end up should we make the right decisions and follow gurmat or manmat. etc...

So we have sets of destinies that could or couldnt happen. Some things are guaranteed to happen by guru sahib and others are not. But every1 has a set life expectancy and way of death (unless they can change this by doing massive amounts of bhagti and thus their karams change).

Now, suicide is manmat as in it is somethign we can do out of our own free will, and guru sahib purposely keeps this out of his plan. Reading bani, one sees that human life is such an enormous gift that guru sahib wants to see how we treat it. If we just throw it away like that guru sahib will not save us from our own misery.

Once somebody commits suicide, they are stuck in that place reliving the same instant of death, the same misery, the same horrible pain and suffering AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN... all as a bhoot or spirit which is stuck in that one same spot. They cry out to those around them, but none of us can see or hear their pleas. I beleive bhai randhir singh jee wrote about one such incident but I cannot remember exactly.

So we are stuck in that misery until the time comes when we were supposed to leave this life. Dharam rai will send his jamdhoots to look, but if we are still so attached to the reason we committed suicide and still so attached to the pain and misery, they cannot even free us.. there is a certain amount of time, not sure

how much now, until they do come back, but at that point the best chance of freedom from that hell (which it is) is if a gursikhs happens to come by or a relative remembers or the plea becomes so loud that those living in that vicinity of the suicide begin to hear and see and start to remember god in that area to help free the soul.

I beleive in bhai randhir singhs story an akhand patt was performed to free that soul.

I hope this helps your understanding of suicide and why you shouldnt do it. If you do it, there is no mercy and you will be suffering in that pain for 50 - 60 years if your young...

    • If you think I'm talking tatti, then fair enough. But go listen to ANY Katha performed by the panth's great sants, mahapurash, gianis, kathavachaks of the past 60 years, and you'll not hear anything negative about Mohammed and Islam as a valid belief system.  You'll hear criticism of Islamic PRACTICES or rituals performed by those who say they're Muslims, but you'll NEVER encounter a fundamental disavowal of the validity of Islam as a path to God. Then how can we utilise Sikhi to dismantle Islam when it's always remained in it's good graces?  Didn't Sant Jarnail Singh say that a Muslim should be a good Muslim, a Hindu a good Hindu, etc? There was no, "Muslims should leave Islam" or "Islam is false." Even in relatively recent Sikh history our leadership has sought to make bridges with Islam. What part of Sikhi can we use to stand against Islam that doesn't make it seem like we're just making up 5hit to combat them? Our religious leadership hasn't ever given us ANY ammunition against them. Why?
    • If Gurbani says so, then who are you to claim otherwise? Do you know more? Also, Sikh affiliation and fondness for Islam is concrete. Was it Guru Gobind Singh or Guru Tegh Bahadur who said they weren't combatting Islam for being Islam; they said they'd fight against anyone who was using any religion as a front to oppress and murder? Yes, so if the Mughals were Christians, Buddhists, Jains, etc, nothing would've changed. Islam was never treated as the enemy. It was only certain Muslims who claimed to represent it that were rallied against. I hate to do this, but you folks really need to wake up. Now, a friend is telling you these FACTS that our own belief system propagates but which we choose to ignore. When our enemies will hit us with these bricks we won't be ready for it.
    • I guess you think "There is no Hindu and no Musalmaan" implies "There is only Sikh." You've allowed pendus to interpret Gurbani for you without analysing and reciting it yourself, AND you've also neglected to understand the historical and social circumstances of the time in which it was received by the bhagats. Reading up on Indian history preceding and during the period of the emergence of Gurbani crystallises the mindset and intention of the various authors. It actually makes way more sense if you're aware of the background and life events of each of the bhagats who contributed. Lots of picking and choosing going on. It's also ironic that the one Sikh scripture that would inculcate Sikhs from succumbing to bukwaas from outsiders is the one Sikh scripture that's decried as a fake! 
    • Can anyone find the teachings of Christianity, Islam or other religions before they were corrupted? No. Now the corrupted versions are what is believed by people all over the world so they cannot be the truth. Sikhi is the final truth now. Things that have been destroyed or changed cannot be rectified now. That is why the Gurus came to spread Sikhi to put people back on the true path. So its doesn't matter if the religions in their original form were the truth because now they are not and that is why Sikhi exists.
    • no bro gurbani clearly states only Sikhi is the true panth now. Even if the religions are corrupted later on, it doesn't matter anymore because now sikhi is the ultimate truth and others are corrupted. There is no point in being Muslim, Hindu as they are following corrupted religions. You yourself are saying they are corrupted isn't that why we have Sikhi now? So why does it even matter if they were the truths originally since they are modified now and not the truths anymore.
