I dont agree with the bashing of the Hijabi lady or Muslims who have appeared on the channel. You guys are seem to be flying in the face of the spirit of unity and trying to stir up hate for no reason then you wonder why Muslims have the views they do. If you both act like a bunch of kids we will never get any peace, we will always be fighting each other. Sikhism's strong points is that it is pularistic, people are draw to it when we welcome people of all faiths, all castes and races into our community. But you idiots are acting like a bunch of morons who have forgotten the spirit of Sikhism and become tribal. We lose when we bash other commmunities as it goes against Sikhism and people dont want to look at the faith, we can do so much good by preaching to Muslims by the spirit of unity and peace.

How do you think so many muslims embraced Sikhism in the past? You uneducated low IQ non-sikh spirited guys are forever going on about Muslim guys converting our girls, look at yourselves you think anyone will convert to Sikhism with the way you go on?

As for SangatTV I think they should stay focused on Sikhism, if they drift to different and other area's of theology they will lose credibility with the community and judging by the viewers on justin.tv the fame of bham riots is already fading from 1,500 viewers just on justin.tv alone on one night to a mere 30 approx now. So they need to work hard to win back support from the Sikh community with relevant live discussions and programs.

This is pathetic what are sangat tv playing at as a registered charity aren't their aims to promote Sikhi? There are already lots of islamic channels why are they trying to make one of our channels appeal to Muslims? Sangat needs to speak with them for clarification this is Getting out of hand

Singh, are you seriously blaming the views that muslims have towards us on Sikhs? Do you not think that it perhaps has more to do with the quran about how kafirs need to be converted or pay dhimmi tax and "be humbled"?

This just seems another cynical attempt by Sangat TV to cash in with its new found popularity, this time by sucking up to its muslim viewers.

Since Sangat TV is a Sikh TV it would do better to promote Sikhi by having presenters in Sikhi roop, or at least Sehajdhari SIkhs who are educated in Sikhi and are not simply repeating the anti-Sikh propaganda of the GOI. All it is doing by having hijabed presenters on the channel is confusing people who already cannot tell the difference between Sikhs and Muslims, and we have already seen this result in the murder of innocent Sikhs in the States.

I see a golden oppertunity to preach to Muslims via SangatTV to show them what our faith really teaches. Most Muslims i've spoken to in the past think we worship blue elephants or 10 Gods, how are they ever going to learn about Sikhi if we do not get them viewing the channel too. The clever thing about SangatTV for the past few days have managed to get a small section of the Muslim community seeing the channel, this way they can show what Sikhism is all about and how our community is. We live along side muslims in most british cities and it is better to preach unity and peace and show the spirit of Sikhism than preach hate and speratism and make them hate and attack our youth which in turn goes full circle with our youth attacking them. So we have to be wise and see the long term benefits of this new openess and unity.

And yes in Islam you do have those things hating on non-muslims but this is our strength no1 likes a hater, people like people who show goodness. If we can get Muslims to see what good we do for them too many will be drawn towards Sikhi. I know a few muslim converts, one an iranian one a pakistani former muslim girl. They dont convert to Sikhism because it preaches hate cos it dont, they convert because they are impressed by the goodness they see within the Sikh community.

That's a fair point.

I don't see much preaching to muslims though. So far all I see from the channel is capitulation to muslims for the sake of extra viewers and the abandonment of Sikh principles in the name of a mostly one-sided desire for unity.

If you want to preach to Muslims about the beauty of Sikhi, simply having someone dressed in a hijab on the channel isn't really going to do much. I know a few converts from Islam too, and they certainly didn't take up SIkhi because it was portryaed to them as being indistinguishable from Islam.

    • Yeah that's the one. I've seen it in peoples houses in india, I used to think it was Baba Balak Nath, but then I found out its to do with Guru Nanak Dev jis sons. Do Sikhs believe in that sakhi ?  or is it sects that follow Baba Shri Chand ji ? I wonder if the animals in the painting are of importance? reminds of of Pir Bhudan shah    Thanks. 
    • This forum post talks about it. Has to do with energy during meditation.  https://www.sikhawareness.com/topic/17608-importance-of-tiger-skin-during-meditation/
    • There's a lot of homeless Punjabis/South Asians as well, especially in areas with a large South Asian population like Southall. There used to be homeless Punjabis sleeping under that big bridge near Southall. The Sikh channel helped them I think. Most of them were on drugs. They said when they go to the Gurdwara to eat the management would chase them out. If they asked the management if they can have a shower they would say no. So the Gurdware aren't very helpful!  But the Gurdware probably chased them out because they are on drugs. But its still wrong to chase them out. With all the doctors in our community, you would think some would take time out on weekends and give people advise at Gurdware, but they don't do that ...  We used to have some Punjabi lawyers come to our local Gurdwara to give people advise, but they weren't volunteering they were doing it for money. For a few weeks I volunteered with charity which fed homeless people in the highstreet. Majority of them are on drugs, its hard to imagine them assimilating into society, though its possible.  A lot of homeless people used to eat at our local Gurdwara, but some of them were very rude to the sangat doing sewa, so the sangat had to call the police!  I do feel sorry for these people, I always keep some pound coins in my pocket.     And then there's some fake homeless people who choose to beg because they make more money begging than they would in a normal 9-5 job!   Not far from where I live is a town Windsor, and people go there to beg and then they go  back home in a taxi!  lol!    
    • The person with the blue skin is Baba Sri Chand Ji and the baby was the son of Baba Lakhmi Das Ji, the second son of Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj. Here is the Sakhi from SikhWiki:    Preserving the Family Lineage "Babaji stretches his arm into the sky and brings baby Dharm Chand to earth to save Guru Nanak Dev ji’s lineage. While Babaji himself lived an ascetic life, he not only supported family life, he actually raised the baby Dharm Chand and arranged his marriage One day brother Lakhmi Chand ji had been hunting. Babaji told him it was a sin to kill innocent animals and that he would have to give account in God’s court. Hearing this Baba Lakhmi Chand took his entire household, even the dog, mounted his horse and rode toward Heaven. Baba Siri Chand ji realized that his brother’s baby Dharm Chand was the last descendent of Guru Nanak Dev ji. If the baby left too there would be no one to carry on Guru ji’s blood line. So Baba Siri Chand ji stretched out his arm into the sky, lifted the baby from his brother’s lap, brought him back and raised him as his own son" (SikhiWiki, 2012).
