Jat Sikhs seek OBC status in Punjab

Other caste are just as guilty as the jatts.

Not at all.

When you've got numbers you can get away with all sorts of nastiness. Some of us in racist countries know this. The racism/oppression becomes subtle and normalised. That is what has happened in Sikh society with modern jat culture. And just like goray go nuts at being hooked up on this - so do jats.

When you talk to the so-called 'lower castes' in pinds they are invariably complaining about jats and their behaviour, not others.

Jats tactic to alleviate his guilt about the sorry state of affairs is to try and make himself feel better about his own people's actions by making himself believe (falsely) that 'others' are just the same - so now he can avoid facing up to the challenge of trying to change things at the source of the problem - his own society, culture and people. That is just weak minded.

Central to all this discussion is the matter of power dynamics that arise from numbers and an abuse of this physically, politically and even sexually.

Good. Maybe jats can start to try and use their heads together (maybe lay off the bhangra, booze and smack for a bit?) and think up of some good plans? Anything beats waiting around and constantly whinging about central government to rescue Panjab - especially when they obviously aren't inclined to do so.

Whilst they are at it, maybe, just maybe, they could face up to some bitter home truths about why they are so disliked by everyone - other than wheeling out the old 'because they are jealous' buckwas that has been hidden behind for so long now.

By the looks of it, you'll have to watch other people moving forward whilst you reap what you've sown for a while. Think of it as an important lesson in humility maybe? Maybe being on the receiving end of what your people have been dishing out may lead to some 'cultural paradigm shift' for the better? Who knows?

Good grief !!! :wow: How does a man get to be so bitter and so hateful ?

I've said it before and I'll say it again.......There is something very dark and sinister about Dal Singh. Where that evil inside him comes from god only knows but what we do know is that it seriously clouds his ability to read simple sentences and absorb simple facts.

Here he is associating jatts with alcohol even though people like chamars and churhe have an alcohol problem a thoiusand times worse than jatts.

Here he is associating smack and other drugs with jatts even though it is the urban youth in Punjab (where the Jatts are a tiny tiny minority) who have the biggest drug problem.

Here he is saying each and every jatt son and daughter in Punjab deserves to be unemployed and without a future because of the sins of their fathers (great great grandfathers in fact).

Here he is refusing to acknowledge how the positive discrimination quotas given to the obc status people are fundamentally unfair. Funny, never seen him call for positive discrimination quotas in the UK. Strange, innit ? .....the way he's in favour of it when it comes to Punjab but not when it might affect his own children in the UK. He calls it a 'taste of their own medicine'. We can take it then, that he is regularly to be seen on speakers corner in Hyde Park calling for all white british children to be denied the right to a job ? No, of course you won't see him do that. He's not that honest and not that consistent. He's like a schizophrenic part-time hate-mongerer. When he's around polite British society he puts on an act of being mild mannered and liberal. But mention the word 'Jatt' and oooooooh matron....something inside him stirs. Not nice emotions mind......oh no......something dark and evil stirs inside of him. All the venom....the pent up bitterness...the hatred, it all comes out in the open.

What a truly sick and disgusting human being.

Maybe if you peasants weren't generally so obnoxious, ignorant and excluding people might actually be inclined to do stuff with you?

If we are obnoxious, then you must be our prophet.

You wish there was a paradigm shift. Maybe it would give you a shot at revenge, for however you feel you have been slighted. The only paradigm shift that is happening is that Sikhs are becoming a minority in Punjab.

If they have no debts then they can do what they want. They dont have to give the Indian state anything. As long as EP has enough food, who cares about the rest? About time they grew their own.

If change is to come it has to come from the local government level. No more Badals, no more deras, no more small thinking. If the army wont recruit why dont Sikhs form PMCs?

With NRI land, the farmers still pay rent which can be excessive. Or they just steal the land and leave the NRIs out to dry. My point was that it is unfair for people who have never farmed and never will to own land and create pressures on the land price there which causes half these problems.

Imagine East Punjab as a ship. Each ship has many engines like industry, farming, research, mining etc to keep it going and keep it afloat (economically). East Punjab is a ship with one engine on, an overheated one at that. The rest arent on, no one knows if they work and the one engine that is on is creaking and may break, sinking the ship and everyone on board. It's time to turn the other engines on and reduce the stress on the lone farming engine. But the decision to steer the ship in a new direction rests with the Captain and his officers (Badal and the Akalis). Either they make the decision or the crew and passengers take control and do it for them. Those of us abroad (in the lifeboats) can help but only if the people on board want us too.

True, but they can't shake off their debts because there is no formal credit system in India. Farmers can't just file for bankruptcy. There isn't even a safety net for them. All of these things were provided by the British before independence, and farmers in other countries have these safeguards in place. This has to be fought for politically.

I think NRI's have to make more engines to run Punjab.

There is a huge drug and cancer problem in Punjab. If NRI's built more hospitals, it would employ people as doctors, nurses, technicians, laborers, etc. There would actually be some opportunity for people. It would reduce the drug culture because young men with disposable income, and nothing to do, would suddenly have a job. It would also treat the cancer epidemic.

Just my two cents

To be fair I can agree with most points here, but I can not believe the days of the jatt riding the government gravytrain are over? Subsidised food grain? electricity? water? and now they want OBC? They did well with getting land reform back in the days and maybe they should be forced sell some land if they are going through some hard times. This could help many landless people who probably make up a greater percentage of Punjab's population but have little or no land holdings.

What else did you expect? Instead of attracting people to the faith, jats have people from poorer backgrounds leaving in disgust at their shabby treatment - do the math.....

Apay beej, apayee kahoo.

Who are these young men with disposable incomes?

If they are leaving, then maybe you should call them into your gurdwara. Hypocrite.

I don't own any Gurdwara peasant.

Stop trying to ignore the 'reason' they are leaving btw. The dissonance too much for you?

Are all farmers in debt though? If people wanted to leave farming, the local government could hold an amnesty, and use their assets against the debt and write the debt off. It all depends on what kind of farming reform/infrastructure we want in place.

I personally think small farms are unsustainable and huge farms are bad for society. There has to be a range of farm sizes that are a 'sweet spot' ie large enough to be sustainable but not so large that the people who own dont actually do the work on it.

I talk to people over here why they dont invest in EP. They all say they dont trust the Badals or Police. Even with hospitals, the Akalis would find a way to cream off money. If the politicians, police and deras didnt suck the blood out of EP so much their would be enough revenue to build hospitals. But they dont.

It's weird how Sikhs only show their talent for economics/politics/militaristic violence in the few institutions we have left like Gurudwaras, EP Police and EP Government rather than, you know, keeping the politics in the Parliament, the economics in the economy and the militarism in the armed forces.

You cant ignore the sweet offers and promises they get from outside too. Raddashwamis and Christian missionaries have a field day with these people.

    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
