Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Excellent news. Thank you to both SRIWAHEGURU and Taranpreetsingh.

Is there any chance of knowing when the next meeting is taking place (in advance)? Have any other notifications/ letters been issued?

Gurfateh Sangat Jee, Quick update about meeting. Guru Nanak Darbaar Committee members agreed the following points

1. There will never Brajman Guru Granth Sahib Jee's Swroop in the Warehouse.

2. There will never sent Guru Maharaj Swroop to India.

I know there were many questions rasied by Sikh Sangat we haven't got answers but with Guru Maharaj's kirpa there will be Akand Path Sahib starts from 27th sept. and bhog of Shri Akand Path Sahib will on 29th sept 7.00 AM. We will urge sangat living near London area to please Come. Remember 29th Sunday 7.00 AM. Path is for forgiveness from Maharaj from all sides. To request Maharaj to bless us all (Gurdwara committee & Sangat) to work together in the future to raise awareness of Satkaar.

Bul Cukh Maaf.

I am actually very impressed with the reaction of the wider Afghan Sikh sangat in London. They could have all too easily become defensive and seen much of what is going on as a personal attack on their community. But they haven't. Their reaction has shown how their first love is respect for Guru ji and how they share the same anguishes we do. You have to give them credit for that.

Gurfateh Sagat Jee, Very Bad News. Guru Nanak Darbar Committee let us down again.Today morning I received call from the local Singh in London saying that Guru Nanak Darbar Committee Refuse to have Shri Akhand Path Sahib. In meeting last saturday they announced in front of Sangat there will be Shri Akhand Path Sahib for forgiveness from Maharaj. Committee even said JAKAARE(commitment in front of Guru Jee) These people don't have any respect of Guru Jee.

Shri Akaal Takht Jathedar is here london today. Some local Singh will go to them and will let them know about this Beadbhi.

It comes as no surprise to many that the Afgan Sikh community is behind this shame.

If you allow Beadbhi of Guru Granth Sahib, then people will ask what kind of a religion do Sikhs have?

If Sikhs can do this to themselves, what's stopping other people to be equally if not more disrespectful?

If musulman or hindus did this, there would have been international news? Is this incident not a case of double standards?

It doesn't look good for the Afgan Sikh community as a lot of other Southall Sikhs already believe they are ruthless greedy fraudsters that are only maya orientated. (Maybe, this is the effect of too much time with musulmans in Pathanization) (Why setup a separate Gurdwara when the main Southall one (mostly empty) is around the corner?)

People might start to boycott Afgan shops soon...

Either way, the Guru Nanak Darbar Committee need to issue a full apology for their involvement (dating back many years) and sort this mess before it gets out of hand.

Have anyone actually heard from the Guru Nanak Darbar Committee or the people that done this since the news first broke?

It seems the Khalsa Diwan Afganistan are taking the right steps to resolve this but they didn't commit the Beadbhi and there has been no information to suggest anything has changed.

News is slowing spreading by word of mouth and (rightly or wrongly) this will no doubt further damage the image of the Afgan community (its not as if Guru Nanak Darbar Committee hasn't been given enough time to fix this).

The Sikh Channel seem strangely silent...

Khalsa Diwan Afganisation and the Afgan Sikh community are trying their best but it doesn't appear as if the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib Committee wants to resolve this.

An acknowledgement that a Beadbhi has occurred as not been formally issued by the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib in Southall. We appeal to the Afgan Sikh community to step in and resolve this divisive issue.
