Yes thats probably the main reason for the "open" meeting....... if the dudley "sangat" (any tom,<banned word filter activated> or harry from the brittainia pub) wants maas shaaarab then who are we to stop them..... they might as well as vote for strippers as well in that case as it will have a good chance of getting passed :-)!!!

That's sad. It will always remain a Gurudwara building because the sangat's money was used to buy / build it. The only way it will become non-Gurudwara affiliated is if somebody outside of the community buys it.

Why can't they leave it as a place for the kid's martial art lessons or a nice little library? Seeing as the government are closing down public libraries in the UK, it would be a nice gesture for the wider community who could also have access to it. I'm sure they could derive an income stream from the building that doesn't depend on alcohol, meat and parties.

is it tru that 1 of the committee guys have resigned? lol, he probably chickened out bcuz of all of this stuff going down. why did he get scared and run i wonder?

Perhaps he resigned out of principle. I have done that myself and often it's the strongest statement to make to the remaining members of the committee.

At the end of the day, I personally would never want to be associated with a committee who will go down in our modern history as the ones who abused the Guru Ghar and served meat, sharab and allowed dancing on the Guru Ghar's jagir, similar to some of the masands and mahants of the past. Let's be honest and put this situation into context. The maha beadbi and paap that Mahant Narian Das carried out in Nankana Sahib almost 100 years ago lead to the Gurdwara Sudhar Lehar where Sangat took control of our Guru Ghars to bring back Sikh principles, so now what is different in modern times when committees like GNSS Dudley pour sharab in the jagirs of the Guru?? Does this not deserve the same reaction from the Panth? Why is it that only 250 British Sikhs were pained by what was happening in Grays Gurdwara and went to protest and the remaining 499,750 Sikhs just carried on ignoring any issues by burying their heads in the ground?

At least this committee guy has the sense to abondon these abusers of the Gurdwara. I hope he stands with the rest of us when the time comes and we need to stand united against bad committees like this.

If this committee member has resigned, it's a bold step. If the committee are acting like mahants in Gurdwaras, and using sangat income for their personal pleasures rather than Gurmat, then it is better not to be associated with such people.

These committee members will have their come-uppance at some point. If they think they can do their "chalaakiaan" and create a separate charity/committee to think they will stop the sangat complaining about their actions, they are living in cloud cuckoo land. Bottom line is that sangat money has been used to fund the hall. Therefore, no meat and alcohol. Guroo Jee will do his kirpaa and the continued arrogance of these committee means they will get sajaa in this world and in dharam raaj, unless they change their ways.

This is a great example of how far manmukhs are willing to go in order to protect their manmukh activities! The easy answer for the committee is to do their seva and implement Gurdwara maryada. Instead they are thinking of ways to bend the rules to suit their means. Dudley sangat deserve better than this committee who are creating doubt in the minds of the sangat and continue to mislead. Shameful behaviour....

Mod Note: This will be allowed to remain as it was a request by a member of the committee themselves for the information of the sangat. Giani Sukha Singh is known to be a respected member of the sikh community and therefore sikhsangat has faith that this is indead a genuine request.

why r u all assuming that he's a hero and did it for good reasons? i think he sold out. shudve stuck with the committee. and i heard he's a youth. it jus goes to show that when the s*** hits the fan, they all run...

_/\_ Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh _/\_

it is true!! that the "ONLY ONE YOUTH" in the management committee, resigned bec of his principle and his belief's ,

what ever you are saying or thinking "Mr hooareya-hooareya" is wrong man, you don't know what's up in dudley unsure.gif

NOTE FROM Darshan Singh Trustee: (he ask me to put this up)

The Open Sangat Meeting this Saturday 12pm is only for "dudley sangat"

regarding "meat and alcohol in the Gurdwara centre".

NO any "TOM Diek and HARRY" is allowed to come for this meeting. You will be ask to leave.

Great, so the rest of the committee who want to continue with allowing meat and alcohol in the Gurdwara are the real heroes?

The s*** has hit the fan for those who dont want to adhere to Gurdwara Maryada. The gravy train has come to its last stop. It's time for the committee to change it's selfish ways.

    • I hope you're not basing your opinion on much later artistic representations?? That would be insane. They are not photos.......    But you do have a point about Guru Arjan Devi ji's shaheedi. Jahangir (in his memoirs) specifically mentions that he ordered Guru ji to be executed in line with some ancient (from Genghiz Khan's time) little known Mongol laws called 'yasha', and as far as I can tell, under these protocols nobles were to be executed without having their blood spill on the ground.  I have read of Singhs being hanged from trees by their kesh in 18th century Persian accounts of conflicts with Singhs. If the whole aim is to terrify and  destroy your captives, I doubt the persecutors would have cared too much about keeping their prisoners dastaars on - if anything I would imagine they would have gone out of their way to remove them, to try and degrade them further.   
    • City Sikhs, Project Naad, British Sikh Association (lord Rami ranger)- Complete jokers. 
    • Does anyone know from historical written sources, if it is specified whether Singhs were allowed to keep their head covered when persecuted by the Mughals, during torture/execution?  Was it just on a case by case basis? For Guru Arjan Dev Ji, it seems head was allowed to be kept covered with Dastaar.   most of the photos I’ve seen Banda Singh Bahadur with head uncovered   @dallysingh101 ?
    • Proper Bezhti.... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-64496456 Jasvir Singh: 'I'm a devout Sikh - and married to a man' Published 8 hours ago Share   Image caption, Jasvir and Nick on their wedding day By Aleem Maqbool Religion editor, BBC News   Jasvir Singh is one of the most prominent Sikh voices in British public life. He is also gay - a fact that he has kept mostly private until now. It's put him at odds with some members of his own community, but he says he now wants to speak up about his sexuality. Jasvir Singh lays out some photographs on the table in front of him and takes a deep breath. They are pictures of joyful moments from the day last summer when he married his husband, Nick. "I know that speaking about this is going to be highly controversial," he says. "I'm sure there will be lots of people out there who will be upset, annoyed, even angry at me. "But I've got nothing to hide and I know that I have got Waheguru [God] with me, as I have had Waheguru with me all the way." Jasvir is a family law barrister and the main Sikh contributor to Radio 4's Thought For The Day. He has just been awarded a CBE for his work bringing faith communities together and advocating for vulnerable groups. But through it all, he has lived with a swirl of speculation about his private life - often spilling over into attempts at intimidation - that he now wants to address head-on. "There is a very small element of the British Sikh community that makes itself loudly heard. From them I have received death threats for being gay, I have been accused on a TV station of being an infidel and I have even had individuals call me up and threaten to expose me." Though Jasvir says he has not tried to hide his sexual orientation, it is not something he has talked about publicly. Recently, however, Jasvir says he has been confronted by an unsurmountable obstacle that meant he could not live out his faith in the way in which he wanted and in the way others can. "My husband is white, British, and was not born into a Sikh family. But he understands my Sikhi (Sikhism) and he has respected and embraced that part of my life. We have said we want to have a family and want to bring our children up Sikh. "We spoke about the kind of wedding we wanted in great detail, but sadly there was no way of getting married in a gurdwara, even though in my interpretation of the Anand Karaj (the Sikh marriage ceremony), there is no reason for this." .... Jasvir and Nick have just returned from their honeymoon, during which they visited gurdwaras in Punjab and in other parts of India.
