Has Jonathan Aitken's daughter Alexandra spurned Sikh warrior for 'true husband?

Alexandra Aitken's two-year marriage to a Sikh holy man is said to have hit the rocks.

By Richard Eden7:28AM BST 08 Sep 20133

As the daughter of a Conservative ex-cabinet minister, Alexandra Aitken caused a stir when she renounced her western way of life and moved to the Punjab to wed a Sikh warrior, Inderjot Singh. Now, friends of the former It girl have been less surprised to hear rumours that the marriage has hit the rocks.

Alexandra and Inderjot split earlier this year, claims a friend of Jonathan Aitkens family. She is still a devout follower of Sikhism, but their marriage was in trouble.

The Aitkens told me that Alexandra then moved to Italy. She was there by herself for some time and is now back in India. She loves her life out there, but Inderjot seems out of the picture.

Ally, 33, is one of Aitkens two daughters by his first wife, Lolicia. He also has a daughter, Petrina Khashoggi, 32, from an affair with Soraya Khashoggi, the former wife of the arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi.

Ally stunned her family when she announced in late 2010 that she was to marry Inderjot, swapping the nightclubs of Mayfair for a simple life in the holy village of Anandpur Sahib in northern India.

In a recent interview, she explained how she follows the teachings of Guru Gobind Singh, which include not cutting your hair, using a wooden comb and carrying a ceremonial spear and dagger.

Asked about marriage, she failed to mention Inderjeot, saying: I consider Guru Gobind Singh my true husband.

She added that was then staying at a meditation centre in Anandpur Sahib, Amritsar.

When contacted about the alleged separation, Ally refuses to comment, saying, cryptically: Thank you. Forgive me. Many believe, 'dont talk unless it improves on silence.

Last year, having changed her name to Uttrang Kaur Khalsam (victorious return in Punjabi), she hit the headlines after she was photographed walking barefoot in her Indian hometown, dressed in long, traditional robes.

In one hand, she clutched a spear and in the other, a bag of bananas. Meanwhile a pair of iPod headphones was seen tucked beneath her imposing white and purple turban.

Ally, who once posed naked for GQ magazine, first encountered Inderjot, a member of the deeply religious Nihang sect, at the Golden Temple in Amritsar while she was on a yoga retreat.

Despite not speaking a word to him, she returned six weeks later and declared her love. The pair became engaged and, within months, were married in a 4am ceremony witnessed by 150 holy men from the Nihang sect.

"Her parents were unable to attend but, as a glossy shoot for Hello! revealed, her sister, Victoria, was by her side.

She moved into an Indian ashram and would spend her days praying, meditating, practising yoga and helping locals women scrub the temple floors with holy water.

Little is known about the mysterious Inderjot, who reportedly changed his name to Janbazz Singh Akaali (daredevil or brave-hearted in Punjabi).

Ally once described him as a pious man, dedicated to helping the poor and whose armed Sikh sect is like the SAS of the religion. However, his relations have been critical, saying he was not a true Nihang and had no obvious means of supporting his wife.

Every 15 to 20 days, he comes home to take money from his mother, said his uncle.

Aitken tells Mandrake that he does not believe that Ally has become estranged from her husband.

It's a shame, but to be honest I can't say I'm surprised as I always had a feeling they wouldn't last.

I hope she doesn't leave the path of Sikhi too. Some old habits are hard to change, and some times it's best to learn how to walk before you start running. Yes, she is blessed to have found the path of Sikhi, but the reality is that rehat is difficult to maintain and once the new 'excitement' wears off, lots of 'converts' (to any religion) find it hard to maintain that inner high and quickly wander off in search of the next fix somewhere else, especially those who come from a party-animal/drink/drugs/hippy background.

I wonder if she is still linked to these 3HO yoga teachers as shown on this link http://yogamint.com/about-us as to me she comes across as confused.

Baba Nihal Singh (Harianvela)


Baba Nihal is the Jethadar of Tarna Dal, one of the factions of Nihang Singh's. The previous Jethadar found Baba Nihal because he had a premonition and picked him up from his parents. The parents agreed to let their child be raised and taught in the Nihang Dal. Nihal was a very obedient student and his Jethadar would always dismiss him to go to sleep. One day the Jethadar woke up and Nihal had been standing by his side all night. When asked Nihal said that he was never dismissed and therefore didn't leave. In 1964 Tarna Dal went to liberate the Gurdwara Paonta Sahib from corrupt masands. While performing an Akhand Path the Singh's were shot by police. Baba Nihal was 1 of 2 survivors and was honored as a living Shaheed. In 1984 Baba Nihal was tortured by the police, but did not give up. He remains the Jethadar of Tarna Dal, living in his villiage Harianvela (Hoshiarpur) and making frequent visits to Canada. He remains a great source of inspiration and knowledge for the Sikh Panth.

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
