Naamdharis Given Air On Sangat Tv


Recommended Posts

if they are singing the praises of the guru then it has to be their deh tari guru it can not be SGGS JI otherwise why have a deh tari guru in the first place ?, also we need to stop making excuses for the kookas they are what they are devotees of a deh tari guru full stop. They are not part of the khalsa panth who has only allegiance to SGGS JI the jyot of the ten Gurus.

I watch sangat quite alot and dont remember ANY narakdharis on there.......deeper rooted conspiracy??? Maybe you should prove the fact by saying which show and presenter had narakdhari on it.....hopefully its not the second pic you posted, as thats the naamdhari that was on this monday.

Also the pic of aps maan is pretty old as i have seen it before ages ago........or are people not allowed to make mistakes in life.

Judge only when you can be sure you're personally worthy.

Which is never.

Really..do you want to provide any evidence, videos etc of naamdharis singing shabads praising their own Guru..or is this another rumour with no evidence to back it up...

I have seen various youtube videos of Naamdhari kirtan...I dont see any shabads where they are singing to their own pakhandi baba as you state...

I haven't seen the show with Naamdharis on it but, according to Sikh Rehat Maryada:

The Definition of Sikh :

Article I
Any human being who faithfully believes in
i. One Immortal Being,
ii. Ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak Sahib to Guru Gobind Singh Sahib,
iii. The Guru Granth Sahib,
iv. The utterances and teachings of the ten Gurus and
v. the baptism bequeathed by the tenth Guru, and who does not owe allegiance to any other religion, is a Sikh

These people be it Naamdharis, Radhasoamis, Nirankaris, Ravidasia or anyone else who doesn't fit the definition of a Sikh according to the Sikh Rehat Maryada are not Sikhs. They are of a different religion/organisation.

I have no problem with a Naamdhari being given air time just as if a Muslim, Hindu or Christian being given air time. These types of discussions allow people to make up their own minds and show how pakhandi they are. Sangat Tv should have a disclaimer that these views of Naamdharis do not represent Sangat Tv or the Sikh Community.

It appears that this thread like absolutely EVERY THREAD on this forum has gone from discussing a particular issue to digressing and morphing into this aint sikhi and that is sikhi.

I'm the truer sikh and your not a proper sikh.

I watched this programme in its entirety and found nothing objectionable whatsoever.

Obviously i would have an issue with naamdharis given a platform to air their views unchallenged on sangat tv, but that is far far from what happened here so it begs the question.........

Why start attacking something you have'nt seen?

Typical bandwagon singhs.

How many of you wrote to the conservative leader of ealing council voicing concern about anita kapoor??? Not one of the sher's on this forum did.

How do i know? Because i asked.

The conservative party doesn't even know theres an issue.

British sikhs are the ape ancestors of their north american intelligent cousins.

Fight amongst yourselves over who's the truest sikh why dont you.


According to you imbeciles;

Gora media is biased.

Indian media is biased.

And the sikh channels are a disgrace.

So once again we find the world not understanding us........or maybe some of us need to look in the mirror??

Because sikhi in the uk is flourishing in the uk yes?? Er.......no!

We are regarded as foaming at the mouth fanatics........reading the threads on here...........i wonder where they get that idea????

    • Too add another piece of the puzzle of what apnay experienced during the colonial period (as requested in the OP).         It’s easy to be mistaken by this picture of a gentle, stooped, grandfatherly 95 year-old. He was in fact one of the most feared and dangerous men in British India. So feared was he by the British that, shackled in irons, he was held for 16 years in near solitary confinement 1000kms off the shore of India for fear of the revolution he tried to spark. This is Sohan Singh Bhakna, founder of the revolutionary Ghadr Party. When India joined WW1, every young Punjabi man was vigorously encouraged to join the Indian Army; British officials, Indian nobility, Indian district bureaucrats, even the Indian National Congress and Mahatma Gandhi joined forces to promote recruitment. Opposing that consensus was a vociferous, violent energetic group, operating from North America called the Ghadrs, or revolutionaries. Sohan Singh Bhakna became active in the early nationalist movement before he joined the small pioneering stream of men who moved out of Punjab to the Pacific Northwest in the early 1900s where he worked in lumber mills. America wasn’t colonising India but there was no lack of racism and discrimination toward the ‘Hindoo’ labourers and Bhakna rapidly joined the early Indian labour movement. He founded the Ghadr party with other North American Indians who agitated for the overthrow British colonial authority in India by means of an armed revolution. The Ghadrs viewed the Congress-led Independence movement as soft and unambitious so adopted a harder stance with their principal strategy to entice Indian soldiers into armed revolt against the British taking particular advantage of the vulnerability of the First World War. Their revolutionary plans included smuggling arms to the passengers of the Komagatu Maru on their return to India, making overtures to the German Embassy in the US, pumping out revolutionary messages to Indian soldiers via their prolific pamphleteering. Their most seditious and dangerous plot was to coordinate violent armed revolutionary activity with Indian soldiers in SE Asia. Alarmed, the British promptly arrested Sohan Singh as he tried to enter India in 1914 and tried for conspiracy. Found guilty, he was sentenced to death. A sentence later commuted to life imprisonment in The Andaman Islands, 1000kms off the shore of India. There Sohan Singh settled into a period of revolt and activism with repeated hunger strikes to improve the conditions for his fellow prisoners. Both in the Andamans and back in India where he was imprisoned until 1930 he carried out hunger strikes for Sikh prisoner’s religious rights, the rights of lower caste Indian prisoners and in support of Bhagat Singh. By the outbreak of the Second world war, Sohan Singh had been released 10 years and was an active and fearsome political voice for the Communist Party. War brought new rules, and the Indian Government arrested and interred the now 70-year-old Sohan Singh for 3 more years in an Indian jail lest he revive his violent tendencies during a time of wartime vulnerability. He lived another 20 years after Indian Independence and the Partition, a constant and prolific voice in early Indian politics. He died in 1968, ending a phenomenal life of 98 years, in his home district of Amritsar. -Amandeep Madra https://barusahib.org/general/sohan-singh-bhakna-the-man-who-shook-the-britishers-with-fear/
    • I've worked around a lot of them over the years. For all their faults, none of them (that I've met) seem remotely concerned with the colonial thing, they seem too shrewed and self-serving for that. It's some western raised apnay that do this.    
    • I agree that the situation is improving among western born Sikhs, but I don't think there has been any significant growing consciousness in that regard among Indian Sikhs.
    • You're right, but I don't see hordes of apnay queuing up to join in, like before. We do have a ground level movement that questions the past in the UK like never before. 'No more sepoys'. The whole colonial period is under scrutiny across the board these days.  Interestingly, this is part and parcel of a growing consciousness in broad areas amongst Sikhs. Of course we will have opportunists and the gullible who struggle to put the past in proper context, but then that just makes the job of de-brainwashing apnay all the more important. We might not be able to educate every last person, but we can make a big difference, enough to reign in the confused.  
    • This is no big mystical revelation imho.  European whites fighting amongst themselves has been on the cards for ages. It's the natural state of things if long term history is anything to go by.  The only good point right now is that we don't hordes of our own illiterate pendu peasants lined up to do goray's dirty work for peanut money that was stolen off them in the first place (like in the previous conflicts with krauts/nazis).  Shasters will be/are important, but anyone who doesn't recognise how important ashtars i.e. projectile weapons like guns, canons, missiles etc. are today is a bewakoof of major proportions. Those of us in the western diaspora: abled bodied young men and women, get ready to defend your own community in the potential face of a rise of racism. It's been done before. Plus the indigenous nazis in many western disaporas have now been reinforced by 'refugee' eastern european ones.  It doesn't take a genius (or a mahapurash sant) to figure out what we may have to face.
