In a recent article to Man Jitt Weekly, the people pushing for the old Gurdwara to become a party hall are open and honest about their views on meat, sharaab and community centre's made through Gurdwara.

Sunday 26th June 12pm VOTE NO!!

The new Gurdwara Committee wants to maintain and refurbish the Old Gurdwara Sahib dilapidated buildings (Hall 1). Realistically this will cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to refurbish, for what will always be a temporary short term inadequate solution.

We urge you to ask?

• Do we have a planning & building regulations consent for the proposed work?

• What are the costs involved in bringing Hall 1 into temporary use?

• Why are details of cost and revenues being deliberately hidden?

• What additional incremental income if any will this generate for the Gurdwara?

• Why has there been no further detailed consultation with Sangat on future plans, as was previously agreed?

• Who are these mystery donor’s and should this money not be used for the more urgent priority of debt reduction?

• Why is the new “Gurdwara Committee” not focussing upon debt reduction?

• Why divide the sangat further on what has become a divisive issue?

• Finally would it not be better to start planning for a completely new build facility rather than waste time & money on a temporary solution?

 

We urge the Gurdwara Committee:

 

1. To consult the entire congregation over a 12 month cooling off period

2. To focus on unity and act with the best interests of the Gurdwara & the sangat

3. Produce a long term vision and viable Business Case which enlists full sangat support

4. Prioritise debt reduction and encourage fund raising

Vote for common sense: Vote NO

    • 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.
