Shooting At Wisconsin Sikh Temple (Gurdwara)


Recommended Posts

How can you not worry about the comments? It's people like these that are spreading hatred towards Sikhi. And they are in my prayers I have done Ardaas for em. This is the problem with Sikhi when it comes to educating others about our religion people like you say stop worrying about comments. Are you kidding me? Maybe your in UK and more people know about Sikhi there but here in US people are so dumb that they link Sikhs to Muslims. If we don't educate others these things are going to keep happening.

Exactly. When I first heard the news of a shooting in a Sikh temple, my first thought was that it was between committee memebers or something. The fact that I even thought of that just shows how out o

My prayers are totally with the 6 innocent poeple whose lives were taken by the derranged gun man or derranged gun men. My prayers are also with those innocent people who were injured. We don't know

It's just so ironic that Eric a gora on CNN just now has probably given the best detailing of who Sikhs are...and the 2 previous Sikhs presented us very poorly in comparison!!! Well done Eric!!!

There is always a time and occasion to do your preaching and teaching.

So please stop ranting which is not going to change anything except give you more

stress.

I think he has. Although there's unconfirmed talk about a second shooter, but not sure.

Please keep us posted of the ongoing developments, brother.

No, 7 dead including gunman. 3 were granthis, as well as one who was visiting from Delhi. 3 are in the hospital in critical condition. They are now sweeping the building, it's very big, so it is possible there could be one hiding inside.

News coverage by CNN is pissing me off immensely, but it looks to be over.

Now Indian embassy is getting involved. Police officer who killed gunman is expected to survive

Perhaps the reason why mainstream American society hasn't got a clue about Sikhs is because American Sikhs haven't contributed to American society (aside from paying taxes) like say how the Sikhs who moved to Britain in the middle of the last century, i.e. the whole WWII thing, Sikhs striving for their rights during the 70s and 80s, etc? Just a theory. Of course doesn't mean we should be gunned down but it helps to a have visible positive presence in such a large country such as the U.S.

While I appreciate your deep insights into the American Sikh community as you sit thousands of miles away, now is not the time to say how little contributions we have made into American society.

Also, chill with all the anti American statements. Yes this country has its problems, but I am still proud to call myself a Sikh American and always will be

Fair enough but nothing 'anti-US' in my statement at all. But yeah I'm sure discussions such as these can be held at another time.

Your right now isn't the time and place to be discussing that I'm sorry for that. But I was just on their website and saw those comments and it just is making me mad. I heard they are skinheads(maybe part of the KKK) but very disheartening day for the Sikh community.

US Gurudwara shooting: Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal asks US authorities to ensure sanctity of shrines

CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today described as "deeply painful and shocking" the attack by gunmen on devotees at a Gurudwara in the US and urged the authorities there to ensure that the sanctity of religious shrines is maintained.

Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal is monitoring the situation in New Delhi and will take up the issue with the Union Government, an official spokesman said here tonight.

The incident of firing in Gurdwara in Oak Creek is "deeply painful, shocking and highly condemnable". The Chief Minister has urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to intervene in the matter immediately and ask the US authorities to ensure security of devotees and the sanctity of the religious shrines all across America, the spokesman said.

    • Stammering shud be cured with therapy otherwise it can be a hurdle in job interviews or other daily activities. I wanted to try my speaking skills after therapy and took IELTS. I got 8 band in speaking section.
    • Yes it's almost solved. Thanks to Guru Sahib! Speech therapy really helps. Many people try to cure stammering by medicines or by giving badaam(almonds). Speech therapy is the only way to cure stammering. Hritik Roshan of Bollywood had strong stammering but he got cured through therapy.
    • Did you solve your problem ji ? I imagine Jaap Sahib might be a good Bani ?  
    • Anyone know if Polish Sikhs have left to come to UK at all ?
