I do not know how to explain this you, but I’m not your average Singh. I stand out a mile away from others and I’m distinguishable even in a room full of Singh’s. My weight is nearly 16 stone, heavily built honestly with influence from steroids, have got a good size and look great. I would post a picture but I want to remain anonymous. I haven’t taken amrit yet but will do. I’m kesh dhari and tie a dumalla. I’m 21 yrs of age.

Recently I was racially abused in the area I reside in. I ignored the abuse as I knew I didn’t want to face the repercussion of retaliation because of my career in the public sector would be on the line. However the racism by this one white gentleman was extreme and consistent. He was abusing me whilst I was walking down the road in his car. His abuse was horrific however with some self control I managed to ignore it for 5 mins. However he continued with the abuse and asked for me to fight as his car came closer to me. His car was nearly mounting the kerb as I walked goading me.

My regret.

I reacted furiously I managed to punch him whilst he was driving by the kerb. This caused him to drive onto the pavement. He then got out of his car. So I went for him. Let just say I have experience in martial arts, I absolutely annihilated him. I couldn’t stop, an onlooker went to help the gora so I started on him too. I had both men on the ground and I was head stomping them.

Since that day last week I have felt so bad for what I have done, I cried in darbar sahib. Im not even amritdhari I felt like I needed to go pesh. I been doing seva everyday after work but things haven’t been the same. You don’t understand I literally destroyed that racist gora elbows to the jaw as he got up,etc it was completely sadistic what I did.

Sangat each Im depressed I feel so bad, how do I get out of this

HOUSTON we have a problem! With the exception of a few brave warriors here who understand, it is alarming what the majority of young Sikh males think about this incident! I just finished speaking

Well Done Singh im proud of you!! ..Puraatan Singhs had a reputation of not taking no bullsh*t...we should provide warnings or ignore a dusht a couple times..if they persist....they should get dealt w

Veerji just asking..has anyone ever agressively threatened you....be it verbally or physically?...ive seen too many keshdhari singhs get intimidated...our youth is turning into a bunch of cowards...th

If it was provocation I can't say I blame you. Anyone of any race deserves the same. Good lad. They'll think twice before they abuse another Singh. You've got nothing to be ashamed of. Just don't make a habit of it lol.

You havent done anything wrong. It was destiny for those two island monkeys to get their heads kicked in that day, you just played your part. Probably not a good idea to post what you did on the net though.

As long as you did not give them permanent damage you are ok. I think your feeling guilty because you took it too far. If you train in martial arts you know how far you can take it without permanently damaging someone. If your rage took over you could have seriously hurt someone, and knowing that can be pretty scary. That fact that you feel bad says a lot about you, and I am sure it will make your more reticent to do this in the future.

A good <banned word filter activated> beating could be a blessing for this guy, cause maybe he will reflect on how his big mouth got him beat down. Forget about it, learn from it, and move on.

Brother, you were provoked. In fact he challenged you to fight. Ok, you attacked first but if he was actually going to the extent of pulling up to get out and fight you, who knows what he would and could have done (may have had a knife or whatever). Self defence experts and bouncers call this the pre emptive attack. You took it a bit far but you just have to get over it. This will teach you for next time (if there is unfortunately a next time). Once they are on the floor hurt, then just leg it. Just ask the Guru for forgiveness and you will be helped with your guilt and anger.

Although I'm not averse to the above suggestions, I would say that sometimes it's good to recognise that these reactions stem from ego. If you believed yourself to be truly nothing then you wouldn't be offended by such remarks. When you see maharaj in everyone if he says something impolite to you then it makes no difference, it's essentially him talking to himself. It's weird but its true, I'm not saying you have to be like this right now, but one day aim towards being like that. Like when Bhagat Kabeer ji sat on a horse with what looked like a prostitiute and alcohol in his hand, most of his town slandered him, bhagat kabeer ji did this to deter people from worshipping him, but also showed us that as a gursikh we should adopt a policy of

"Nindo nindo mo ko log nindo, ninda jan ko kharee piaree..."

-Slander me, slander me - go ahead, people, and slander me. Slander is pleasing to the Lord's humble servant.

As ustat (praise) is probably much worse than being slandered, being slandered reduces your ego whilst praise only elevates it :)

Guest Been there bro

Topic creator, do not feel bad. What you did is justified... even our Guru said raising the sword when provoked is righteous. Sikhs these days need to be brave as you were.

Lay off the steroids singh, this is anti gurmat and completely against sikhi. People here seem to be completely ignoring this. I think that you yourself realise that you should have used restraint. In the eyes of the law, we are allowed to use self defence, however we should use restraint. Beg to guru maharaj for forgiveness and stop the steroids singh.

I'm going to have to offer a different view than what you have been getting thus far. The fact is while you were being verbally abused, you are the one that escalated it to a physical level. You did not even give the guy a chance to escalate the situation to a physical level. Its very good that you were ignoring the verbal abuse and kept on walking, but if and only if the guy was physically trying to hurt you should you have retaliated. That is what I think, not trying to put on a guilt trip. It's happened now. Reflect on the situation with a calm and cool mind and figure out what you need to do in order to avoid such behaviour in the future :)

in my opinion what you did was sewa. He picked on you knowing you were a Singh. If you had walked away the next singh walking from college/work would have been his next target.

You did nothing wrong, you did everything right.

There's a line between slander and outright abuse. People misquote Gurbani to justify a submissive attitude, this is totally wrong. Slander of your attributes is something one needs to tolerate and ignore. Insults based on your Sikhi Saroop, without knowing anything about you, is not slander but is simply racist abuse, which can never be tolerated.

Gurbani says that we should aim to be in control of the 5 elements, not let them be in control of us.

We control krodh into bir rass.. we control kaam and use it for pro-creation, we control lobh & moh for desire and attainment of gurbani, sangat and vidhiya, we turn our personal hunkaar to pride of the Khalsa.

if we attempt to kill these elements off altogether, we'd be door mats open to abuse. - This is where the teachings of Budh,Yogi & Sadhus differ from the principles of the Khalsa. We must not confuse the two and end up preaching buddhism to our children.

This was racial abuse and you fisted him.

Your ardas should be for Maharaj to continue to give you the strength uphold the honor of the Khalsa, and for Maharaj to give sense to those that wish to abuse the Khalsa.

well played

Well done Singh! I agree with most of the posters. If every Singh kicked the shyt out of any racist gora, musla or kala who was provoking him, 99.9% of the issues we have in the UK would be resolved. The posters on the other side also have a point as historically Sikhs have always allowed the enemy to have the first strike before responding. But in a street situation, you never know if the gora had a weapon so a first strike knocking him senseless is probably a good idea.

    • If we look at Sikh Rehat 2 things should be noted. First, no alcohol allowed. Second, 4 kakkar are not allowed to leave the body, even for a second!  Let's just say the Gurus decided and gave a figure. We're allowed to consume half a glass (e.g. 250ml) of beer once a week, containing no more than 5% in alc volume. And four kakkars, let's assume Dasah Patsha stated "Four can be parted from you at a distance of 1.5 meters."  Now today, we can guess why the measurement are absolute zero. The rehat states ZERO TOLERANCE! The alcohol consumption would have been edited to "5 glass per seven days it's ok to get tipsy, Thas what Maharaj is saying" and departure from kakkar would have been "150 yards..." We Sikhs EASILY would have fooled and edited measurements!!!  The Gurus knew this. Today our actions are evidence to my opinion. So the Guru has certainly not given us any unit of measurement as we're unworthy of it. 
    • I understand your concern, kada being displayed. Kada should have not been displayed at all.  As for the music, a UK muslim bringing back traditional style instruments in punjabi music? Now thas a big wow! (Ok, maybe not lyrics but all lyrics do head towards lusting anyways) so I stopped listening to all songs long ago. 
    • Former Cong. MP charged with murder in 1984 anti-Sikh riots - The Hindu Former Cong. MP charged with murder in 1984 anti-Sikh riots   NEW DELHI: , DECEMBER 07, 2021 22:27 IST UPDATED: DECEMBER 08, 2021 04:08 IS Noting that an unlawful assembly or a mob of several thousand persons armed with deadly weapons like dandas (sticks) and iron rods was present at the spot with the common object of resorting to large-scale looting, arson and destruction of the property of Sikhs, a Delhi court has framed charges of murder against former Congress MP Sajjan Kumar in connection with the death of a father-son duo during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. The order was passed by Special Judge M.K. Nagpal, who framed charges against Kumar under provisions for murder, attempt to culpable homicide, and rioting, among others. The deceased were identified as Jaswant Singh and Tarun Deep Singh. The court, however, dropped the charges under attempt to murder and destruction of evidence. According to the family of the deceased, a mob led by Kumar burnt the two men alive, and also set their house on fire, on November 1, 1984. Kumar is already lodged in jail after he was convicted in another murder case pertaining to the 1984 riots. The judge noted that there was sufficient evidence to show that Kumar was not only a participant in the mob which killed the deceased persons and set their house on fire, but was also leading it. The court noted that its view regarding Kumar’s participation in the mob was much stronger, and the allegations, along with the material, gave rise to “grave suspicion”.  
    • Experts Say Sikh Leadership Must Oppose Atrocities Against Muslims | NewsClick   Experts Say Sikh Leadership Must Oppose Atrocities Against Muslims Punjab civil society and organisations are very outspoken against the persecution of Muslims, but the Sikh political and religious leaders can do much more. Jasvinder Sidhu   08 Dec 2021   Recently, a gurudwara association in Gurugram, Haryana, opened its doors to Muslims who had bands of Hindu groups harassing them and protesting their offering namaz even at designated spaces. This gesture of brotherhood was welcomed from far and wide, yet it also raised some questions for the Sikh religious and political leadership.  Many Sikh historians feel the marginalisation of Muslims across north India since the Modi government came to power should not be allowed to pass unchallenged. They say the leadership of a community labelled a “protector” should break its silence on atrocities against any minority community. They also say that while Punjabi civil society has kept raising its voice against the targeting of Muslims by Hindu fundamentalists, it is time community leaders also raise their voice for Muslims and against their mistreatment. “This [mistreatment of Muslims] should not be tolerated; they are citizens of India,” says Dr Joginder Singh, head of the Sikh History and Research Center, Khalsa College Amritsar. “It is not just about Muslims. Sikhism teaches us to fight injustice and this struggle is part of our history. Our gurus sacrificed their lives and families for justice,” he adds. According to the message of Guru Nanak Dev, if there is injustice, Sikhs must raise their voice against it. “The exact words are, ‘Nanak naam chardi kala tere bhane sarbat da bhala—which means ‘blessings and peace for everyone’,” says Joginder Singh.  In August 2019, BJP leaders started making offensive remarks about Kashmiri women in public after the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution in Jammu and Kashmir. Soon after, Giani Harpreet Singh, the Jathedar or head of the Akal Takht, the top decision-making body of the Sikhs, issued a powerful condemnatory statement. He said, “Kashmiri women are part of our society. It is our religious duty to defend their honour. Sikhs should protect their honour for the sake of duty and history.” The statement of the Akal Takht had such a strong impact that no BJP leader uttered a single word about Kashmiri women after it. The holy book of the Sikhs, the Guru Granth Sahib, has many hymns and shabads such as ‘Shora so pehchaniy joh lade deen ke het—he alone is brave who fights for the underprivileged/helpless.’ Such lines are crystal clear about the duty of Sikhs toward others. It is another reason why historians feel the religious and socio-political heads of the Sikh community must urgently speak out for Muslims anywhere in the country. “I think the influence of the Jathedar of the Akal Takht is very crucial and his intervention necessary. But unfortunately, this institution has been marginalised because of the political functioning of the Akali Dal and the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee,” feels Dr Joginder Singh. “Yet, if Jathedar Gyani Harjeet Singh acts independently in this regard, it could bring some relief for the Muslim community, which would be most welcome and desirable,” he adds. Experts also point out that Punjabi civil society and groups have regularly opposed the targeting of Muslims by Hindu fundamentalists. “It is not that the Sikhs are not speaking on this issue [of ill-treatment of Muslims],” says Harjeshwer Pal Singh, professor of history at the Guru Govind Singh College, Chandigarh. He adds, “Civil society in Punjab is very vocal about it.” He points out that Punjabis participated in the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests in Delhi and that by and large, the Punjabi Sikh community has stood with Muslims. “But I feel the Sikh religious institutions should speak out for their fellow minority too. Still, we cannot call it a failure of the Sikh community on this issue,” he says. There are still expectations that the Sikh political and religious leaders would also break their silence, just like individuals and civil society have. The view is that the Sikhs must oppose the creation of a situation that they had to confront during the eighties due to the same people and police.  Another perception about Sikhs is that they are silent because of past atrocities by Mughals and execution of Sikh gurus in particular. It is a perception avidly propagated by the Hindu right-wing forces. However, experts demolish this argument with solid historical references. “The atrocities of the Mughals against the Sikhs are not an issue at all,” argues Sarabjinder Singh, Director, Jagatpur Baba Center for Interfaith Harmony, Patiala. “In Sikh history, two Muslim brothers, Gani Khan and Nabi Khan helped Guru Govind Singh ji escape from the siege of the Mughals in Machiwara, Punjab. Sikhism is always against cruel, merciless regimes. Then, Mughals were the ‘zalim’ [oppressor]. If any other community was doing the same things, the guru surely would have fought them.” There are a number of historical events wherein the Muslims fought for the Sikhs, even sacrificing their lives. After Guru Teg Bahadur was martyred along with Bhai Sati Das, Bhai Mati Das, and Bhai Dayala Das at Delhi’s Chandni Chowk, Abdulla Khawaja, keeper of the jail at Chandni Chowk Kotwali in Delhi revolted against the Mughals. He was the first person to reach Anandpur Sahib with information about the executions. Sikh gurus were executed, but other gurus did not cease interacting with Muslims and continued business with Mughal rulers. This did not change in the 18th century, when the Sikh rulers were in power. For example, most Sikh rulers in the Malwa region issued coins in the name of the Afghan king Ahmad Shah Abdali. “It is a wrong notion that there was a consistent conflict between the Sikhs and Muslims,” says Dr Joginder Singh. “You can also take the example of Pir Buddhu Shah. He fought on behalf of Guru Govind Singh ji. So, there are number of instances in the Sikh History where Muslims fought for Sikhs.” Even the composition of the Khalsa army led by Banda Bahadur Singh in the 18th century was substantially Muslim. “My perception is that the Sikh leadership missed a chance when the special clause of the Constitution for Kashmiris was withdrawn by this government,” feels Dr Joginder Singh. “Sikh leaders should have sent a message to the minority community. They think they have a good reputation with Delhi, so they are safe, but nobody is safe.”  “Look at how the government and media labelled the farmers protesting against the three farm laws as Khalistani and separatist,” he concludes.
