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.

The guy should be embarrassed. He should be working hard to provide for the family.

Kirat Karno, Vand Ke Chakko te Naam Jappo. Not Lohkan kohloun paise leyo, aap khayo te kade kade naam vi japlo

Respect to her though.

Baba Nihal Singh (Harianvela)

baba-nihal.jpg

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.

Maharaj ranjit Singh did some bad stuff and had to go to Akaal takhats sahib.Baba Santa Singh did a bad thing but later on repented.Why look at someone's previous deeds?He repented for what he did and now he was forgiven.Let's look at what he gave to the panth.He gave us a steek of sarbloh Granth.He gave sarbloh Granth santheya to many gursikhs.A lot of bhuda dal singhs were there from when they were young.They thought what santa singh did was right because they get into that mentality that there baba is always right.If a taksali student who was taught by dhumma he would think that dhumma is the jathedar.I did meet some bad apple nihang singhs in India and I met so many awesome Nihangs.I actually studied at a nihang taksal near moga and the jathedar of that nihang taksal is really chardikala.So are the students there.

Do you think the main Kathavachaks that are touring the world from Budha Dal have said Santa Singh was wrong for what he did? Instead they agree with Santa Singh and then blame Gurmukhs of committing wrong acts. Mainstream kathavachaks from Budha Dal are praising Indira Gandhi and blaming Gurmukhs for staying in Sri Akal Takht Sahib. They blame Gurmukhs for the attack on Sri Akal Takht Sahib. This teaching is embedded into their jatha.

I could say Mehta taksal with jathedar dhumma sold his soul to badal.Most of Mehta taksal sold there soul to badal.I could say that but there are singhs for sure who sold their life to guru Granth sahib ji maharaj only.

Surely, you could say that, but actual Taksal Singhs are very vocal when it comes to who is the Jathedar of Taksal. They don't think twice to say Dhumma is a government agent. Additionally, they have separated from Dhumma. But the same is not the case for Budha Dal. They praise Santa Singh without question and agree with his actions.

    • This is what I'm talking about. Can you imagine this happening in Europe and the USA let alone India? Apne are just as bad as respecting whites over others and this is seen in pretty much every other ethnic group. The main reasons are- the vast majority of white nations don't have abject poverty and they have invented and discovered so many things. People therefore think that whites are rich and that also gets them respect. Do you think a Korean or Japanese will get respect by the average Indian in India? They'll probably get mistaken for a poor Nepali or North East Indian and be called chinky.
    • True bro in 2011 when 1.7% of Indians were enumerated as Sikhs that translated as 20million Sikhs back in 2011. The problem is that with a vastly below replacement fertility rate since 2011 there is no guarantee that Sikhs will be much more than 20million by 2050 or the 2051 census when the Indian population is projected to 1,650-1,700 million with Muslims on track to be 350million among that figure. The Sikh population in India needs to be 100million plus strong by the planned census of 2051 if we diaspora Sikhs do our best to financially support education, healthcare and parchaar to the most economically weak communities in Punjab and throughout India.
    • Scomo is just doing what every politician does. Remeber when there were state elections a few years ago, had a few politicians come to the gurdwara on a few Sunday afternoons while all the aunties and uncles could not understand a thing.
    • Day 1 finally got up at 4am today without alarm clock, hoping to keep it going this summer
    • Not really but been to some south east asian countries like Thailand,Singapore and stuff but I'm talking about like korea and japan and the people from there that i have met. They seem just as materialistic. They also see the world in hierarchies and think whites at top and then them at 2nd and all of us below them. I had many east asians in my uni including international students. They will respect white people way more than they will respect other people of color. Maybe it was the past that the societies had an influence of confucion thought like in Punjab sikhi uplifted many people but look at the state of it today. Even Korea now is largely influenced  by Christianity since America helped them rebuild their society and anyone can tell its a largely materialistic society at this point. Also the spiritual Japanese culture is long gone now.
