Nihal Wants To Be A Sikh?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody else ever get the impression that Nihal wants to be a Sikh? If you notice he can't seem to leave us alone. I'm sure Nihal would tell us it's just his job, but I'm not convinced???

It's almost like he wants to tell us that being a Sikh is basically the same as his own personal beliefs. However, because he can't embrace Sikhi (for whatever reasons) his envy shines through in his unrelenting aim to keep on taking the Separate identity of the Sikh Religion, and therefore the Sikhs, away from the Sikhs. Nihal will never accept Sikhs as a stand alone religion in its own right. I wonder if Nihal accepts the Christians and Muslims as stand alone religions in their own right, or does he think they are just a mixture of Judaism and something else!

Does anybody else think that Nihal simply thinks that Sikhi is simply the best religion, but, because he can't join it, he chooses to offend our religion, and therefore us Sikhs instead???

Other that what a few 'hand picked' people on his show, who call themselves Sikhs say, (and they probably all cut and shave their hair, but as it's radio, we, or others can't see that fact) I have never met a single Sikh who doesn't think that Nihal does more harm than good to our Religion by saying the stuff he says out of ignorance. However, it's a free world so he can carry on saying what he likes. I suppose as long as it keeps him in a job, he can carrying on offending us Sikhs, it pays his bills! Fair play to him!

I love the way you think (i think like that too! :p).

It could be true, but he wouldn't admit it and if he were to see this he would bottle him his emotions and throw it into a deeper corner of his heart and come out saying something that attempts to convince others (and himself) otherwise.

Either way, we shouldn't mind him covering us so long as we have well versed Sikhs getting on air to talk about the Sikh issues at hand. What I know for sure is he's very curious as to see what the Sikh beliefs are and deep down I know he respects Sikhs.

I totally agree, the Solution is to get well versed Sikhs onto other channels and shows to let the non-Sikhs learn about Sikhi from practising Sikhs.

Who is Nihal?

He does shows on BCC Radio for Asians and usually tells us Sikhs how we should deal with our affairs. I think he means well but usually does more harm than good for our reputation and image.

I don't listen to Asian network just because of him.

Can't blame you. However, sometimes it's worth listening so that you know what the 'damage' is that needs undoing following one of their shows.

I think he may possibly got one too many wedgies from Singhs in school and now the blood flow to his brain aint the best!

That's one theory (I just think that he doesn't realise the damage that he does to us).

Paaji I think you underestimate mr nihal! He is a pretty intelligent guys, unfortunately his intelligence is used for bad deeds I.e. to defame Gursikhs and Gursikhi and that's intentional for sure!! (let's just call him a brown, modern day Mark Tully - same instintitution pulling the puppets strings!)

Actually Paaji, you're probably right. It's just that alot of what he says is so predictable and school boyish it lead me to under estimate his intelligence. Some of the stuff he says makes me cringe. I get the same feeling listening to Nihal as I do when I happen to catch an episode of Alan Patridge.

Now there's an interview I'd pay really good money to watch, or even just hear.... an interview between Alan Patridge and Nihal. That would be hilarious!!!

A waste of time, who gets more viewers by purposely getting other to react with emotions.

Best thing to do is ignore the fool or get a court case against him for defamation. Don't waste your time on plastic no brain fools like Nihal

Knowing me, Alan Partridge, knowing you, Nihal. A-haa.

Regarding Nihal and his show I've come to the conclusion it's all a big wind-up. I don't think he himself believes the stuff he says. Just a bit of devil's advocate to get people riled up and phoning / texting.
