I love to write and learn about Sikhi but I can only write if I have knowledge. My beanti to sadhsangat Ji is please recommend books I should order from India. My father just went and I am suppose to be emailing him a list at the earliest with books I need. I know a little bit punjabi but it is very hard for me to read, I am still learning. I am more comfortable with english books. So could you guys please recommend books in english or books that have english translation easily available.

Also if you guys know any good bookstore in jhalandar area or even amritsar, please do share.

Se Keneheya- Biography of Baba Harnaam Singh ji ( basic and must read book for everyone )

Roop Khalse Ka - Bhai Rama Singh ji

Auto Biography of Bhai Sahib Bhai Randheer Singh Ji also known has JAIL CHITTHIAN

Unfortunately, the effort which once came into my mind of distributing above three books for free did not go threw and it was also posted to this forum that if anybody need these books can email me and I got many emails but I could not make it happen. I really apologize for that.

Pyario, i'm more than happy to purchase and send them to you but due to the fact that the 3 volumes do contain Gurbanee, i personally don't feel posting them to the US is even an option for me.

you can purchase them from Singh Brother in Amritsar - maybe someone you know may be going India?

volume 1 - SRI NIRANKARI CHAMATKAR by SODHI TEJA SINGH

volume 2 - SODHI CHAMATKAR by SODHI TEJA SINGH

volume 3 - SRI DASAM GUR CHAMATKAR by SODHI TEJA SINGH

http://www.singhbrot...ODHI+TEJA+SINGH

i'm sorry i can't help anymore jeeo - i don't know anyone in the US or anyone that will be going anytime soon.

Bhul Chuk Maaf karnee

if you are interested in deep spirituality, the best books to get are sant waryam singh ji's discourses on the beyond series. they are available in english, but your dad should get punjabi for himself as well. He has soem other books as well. Kam1825 posted on a link on this forum through which you can order Atam Marg magazine, which has both english and punjabi contents. I would also recommend a nitnem steek, I have heard Sant Giani Avtar Singhs is very good.

The Sikh Religion by Max Arthur MacAuliffe is very comprehensive read on the history of our Guru Sahibs.

if you in university, you can search your school library database and they will usually have online books that are written by scholarly sources on whatever topic you want to read about.

I've tried it and have come across some good material for papers on Babbar Khalsa.

    • The pakistani muslims main grievance with Sikh rule of maharajah ranjit singh was that he allegedly used the open air courtyard of badshahi masjid for his troops horses. That they did not allow the azaan to be called from minarets (which was used to disturb the the peace and harmony of punjab). That ranjit singh allegedly opened coffin of a dead muslim woman and stole her quran? (mad unfounded accusations). At least the Sikhs let the muslims remain muslims during his raj. At least the Sikhs didnt kill muslims or oppressed them to the extent they rather died than live under Sikh rule. The Sikhs understood the needs of muslims and let them live and let live as long as they did not rebel against the Sikh government and as long as they didnt harm the Sikhs. Things were beautiful its only when the arab influenced wahaabi salaafi type jihadi extremist muslims came and british empire invaders came did they disturb the peace and brotherhood of glorious Sikh ruled punjab. Now compare that to the zulum and brutalities musilm rulers inflicted on the Sikhs and other punjabis in the past. And to this day the amount of attacks and blood shed of Sikhs is unforgivable and intolerable. Yet the muslims of indian subcontinent have the cheek to say Sikh rule oppressed muslims and so hold this deep hate for us.
    • The pakistani army had this retard in prison for protesting against the removal of blasphemy laws, he then brought out his goons to block traffic and cause chaos on pakistani roads. The molvi's are the real bastaards of pakistan who get their orders and funding from rich arabs and then they put pressure on the pakistani government and army to do things that they want them to do. When Sikhs from pakistan tell us they are safe and happy in pakistan you know their lying they can't speak out of their true feelings because of molvi's like this guy making their lives very difficult. They are 2nd most oppressed Sikh community in the world the first being afghan sikhs.
    • Islamic State Khorasan chief Mawlawi Abdullah, mastermind behind Kabul Gurdwara attack, arrested Updated Apr 04, 2020 | 21:30 IST   The Islamic State had claimed the responsibility for the terror attack on a Gurudwara in central Kabul on March 25 in which at least 27 Sikhs were killed.   File photo of Kabul Gurdwara attack mastermind Mawlawi Abdullah  |  Photo Credit: ANI Kabul: Afghan forces on Saturday arrested the chief of terror outfit  Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP), Mawlawi Abdullah aka Aslam Farooqui for plotting the attack on a gurdwara in Kabul last month. The ISKP had claimed responsibility for the attack, which killed at least 27 Sikhs, on a Gurdwara in the capital Kabul city. According to the sources, Afghanistan's Intel Agency, National Directorate of Security (NDS), has confirmed the arrest of IS Khorasan Chief. The NDS said Aslam Farooqui had links with Pakistan based terror networks like Lashkar-e-Tayebba and Haqqani network. Four Pakistani nationals and Islamic State members - Masoudullah from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Khan Mohammad from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Salman from Karachi, and Ali Mohammad from Islamabad - have also been arrested in connection with the Kabul Gurdwara attack, news agency ANI quoted sources as saying. Mawlawi Abdullah, who is a Pakistani national, had replaced Mawlawi Zia-ul-Haq aka Abu Omar Khorasani as the ISKP chief in April 2019. He belongs to the Mamozai tribe and from the Orakzai agency area on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. March 25 Kabul Gurdwara attack At least 27 Sikhs, including a child, were killed and eight others left injured when heavily-armed gunmen and suicide bombers stormed a gurudwara in Afghanistan's Kabul on March 25. All four terrorists were killed by the Afghan security forces.  Earlier, Indian intelligence agencies had hinted that the LeT and  Haqqani network could be responsible for the attack on Sikhs in Afghanistan. Afghanistan government too had blamed the Haqqani for the terror attack while the Taliban denied its role. Indian government strongly condemned the attack and extended condolences to the immediate family members of the deceased and wished a speedy recovery to the injured. "India stands ready to extend all possible assistance to the affected families of the Hindu and Sikh community of Afghanistan," the government said in a statement. https://www.timesnownews.com/international/article/islamic-state-khorasan-chief-mawlawi-abdullah-mastermind-behind-kabul-gurdwara-attack-arrested/573921
