Sikh Federation (UK) programme on Sunday 6 January to honour Shaheed Satwant Singh Ji and Shaheed Kehar Singh Ji at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough


Recommended Posts

Please pay your respects to Shaheed Bhai Satwant Singh Ji & Shaheed Bhai Kehar Singh Ji at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough,

Thank you to all the Sangat that attended the Shaheedi programme at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough on Sunday 6 January and make it a success.

Thank you to both Sikh TV channels (Sangat TV and Sikh Channel) for both broadcasting the programme live across Europe.

The one down side was the Management Committee at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough refused to let one of the Singhs speak because of his involvement in the Dhunda affair - the Committee continue to hold grudges and certain anti-Panthic individals continue to exert undue influence on and within the Committee. Singhs from the Sikh Federation (UK) at a national and local level exerted pressure on key figures in the Management Committee (President and General Secretary) who eventually agreed the Singh could speak. But this situation was then reversed largely due to one or possibly two others in the Mangement Committee raising objections. We know who these individuals are and they are associated with another organisation (responsible for bringing Dhunda to the Slough Gurdwara) and should feel ashamed of stopping a Singh from paying his respects to our Mahaan Shaheed.

SIKH FEDERATION (UK) Panthic conference to honour Shaheed Satwant Singh Ji and Shaheed Kehar Singh Ji Sunday 6 January 2013 (11am-1.30pm) Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Sheehy Way, Slough, SL2 5SS Arambh A

Scroll on Sangat TV today has been publicising the event. One of the few Singhs who is a member of the Management Committee at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Slough and supports the Sikh Federation (UK) spoke

Most disappointing that the Sikh Channel has not even started the scroll, let alone produce and show a Promo. Initially the Sikh Channel confirmed it would start the scroll on the evening on Friday

let me give you a reality check too - you're making a dogs dinner out of nothing mate .

AKJ - are AKHAND KEERTANI JATHA - understand that first. There utmost seva is KEERTAN - which is a happening all over the uk and world wide. If they haven't been present in the questions and place you mention - doesn't mean they don't no alignment in the panth. - for crying out loud what kind of basless point are you making.

The AKJ have a handful of singhs who do seva of yatra to Pakistan every year,a handful who do some political work -i.e Sikh coucil - British sikh council , a handful doing SOPW work for 84 prisoners in India. And loads others doing GUPT seva which non of us know about way way beyond our imagination.

STOP your curiousity killed the cat questions and say something fruitful - which seva do you do yourself and are inclined to - ? forget any JATHA mate.

Veer,

I apologise if this seems small too you, but I feel different, as its the same Singhs who put their heads on the line, face prison sentences etc when it comes to stand for the panth, satkaar issues or gurmat principles.

Dam Dami Taksal - is an educational institution, therefore according to you Sant Ji and gursikhs like Bhai Fauja singh should just do what their jatha specialise in?

Taksal - Teach and learn about Gurbani, ithiaas etc.

AKJ - just do kirtan? lol...

Imagine if they did....

Sorry its a valid observation, AKJ are a MASSIVE organisation/jathabandi.

If they can all come out for their monthly rainsbai, house progs and smagams then why not for Guru Ji's Satkar Campaign? < That is an valid question which needs to be addressed not brushed aside.

SOPW, Yatra sevadaars etc amazing seva, but still not an exuse to stand for the panth when its needed, and as you said a handful of singhs, what about other members of jatha?

like i said everyone has their reasons - do what you can for the panth mate - don't worry about rest of the panthic jathebandia too much - they're all doing a wonderful job already.Some in these groups will stay the same i.e listen to keertan have langar and go home and think about seva. Some will go the extra mile and do more - but there is no way of knowing who will as it depends on circumstances of the individual. However there are some that are gupt - maybe your one of them who do more than anyone.

Think about it this way if they are already doing something and what you or i want from them - then surely there are valid reasons for them no being there - not just paintbrush everyone that are doing nothing about this and that.

Lastly not sure if you will find the answer to your question - but one thing is for certain - honest seva what ever one can do even if it's 5 mins a day will yield results - so stop the criticism bandwagon and do what u can matey.

It's great to see 3-4 organisations (the gurdwara, two channels and the Federation) get into such a fuss about promoting one event and a £200 advertising budget. It gives me a lot of hope for how an independent Sikh nation would be governed.

Not sure, what you are on about.

Promo shown on both channels was very successful in promoting the ISSUE.

Not sure what you mean by the £200 advertsing budget? £500 was donated to each of the Sikh TV channels by the Sikh Federation (UK) Slough Branch. Gurdwara paid for adverts in Punajbi newspapers and Sikh Federation (UK) arranged for Ajit to cover the event.
