The Sikh Council Need To Think Before They Speak!

Recommended Posts

I was listening to LBC radio (UK) this morning, Thursday 25th September 2014, and a rep from the Sikh Council telephoned in, not as an invited guest but wanted to make sure his gravity of status was mentioned, to object to the word bumfluff being used! The subject was about a muslim school girl wanting to wear a burkha in class. But this person was very upset that the presenter had used the word bumfluff which when James O'Brien, the host, was younger a teacher had asked him to shave it off as it was not in line with school rules. The Sikh council guy was going on about how offensive this word was and it would affect a lot of young people growing up and hundreds of people would telephone in to complain. By the end of the conversation the presenter reminded the guy that not one objection had come in during the chat, the Sikh guy then resorted to playing the victim and saying you can do what you want as you own the radio station.

It all ended up looking daft for no reason - please if you want to represent the Sikh faith get some media training or we all just end up looking foolish.

I heard that as well. I missed the first bit, was the Sikh council guy the first one to bring the word Sikh into the conversation or did James O'Brien say the word first? There was no need for him to ring as the discussion was about a Muslim girl who wanted to wear the niqaab to school.

Who was the Sikh Council rep?

Guy suggests male.

Young or old? Good English?

Did he give his name and position?

He sounded late 20's early 30's with a good command of English but came across very self-important and it was he that said Sikh first, I was driving at the time so did no catch his name at the first bit.

Later on my wife said another Sikh male came on and he was great very grounded and added to the discussion, whoever he was WELL DONE.

As LBC is a commercial radio station to listen again you have to subscribe to its downloads, so if anyone is a member it would be good to link it here so we can all see this fiasco and learn from it.

      True Islam is actually similar to Zarathustra path. Also a full one third 30 percent of Satguru’s fauj is/was consisting of Musalmann. it is wrong of u to malign the Prophet of Arabia for two reasons  number one He was very good being- an Avatar incarnation of Shukra dev - Venus graha deity popularly termed as Daynt Guru - Preceptor to Asura- the opposite of Sura- sura is warrior - sura refers to surajdev the solar deity Sun le soleil -  emblem of atma soul  so if sura is warrior I would say opposite is lover as in Sufi-vedantic-bhagti lover of Allah Bhagwan God etc the emblem of Venus is six point star of inverted triangles (the sign coopted by jew) whereas r path is Jupiterian swastika path Now khanda concept of time is somewhat different for the two paths linear vs cyclical but Syrian Statesman Bashar Assad openly speak of reincarnation principle  puranic hinduism permits warrior caste unlimited number of wives Islam restricts man to four wives  Islamics claim their religion put an end to slavery plus true Islam is actually pure vegetaryan plus the afroasiatic practice of sunnat damage to genitals is actually nonislamic  honour killing is strictly a modern mud race Hindu phenomenon— true RigVedic religion is like Sikh religion- liberty equality of males females - no forced marriages  Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) had problems with jews(who amongst us doesn’t)  Akbar tried to create new religion but failed. Ar all times throughout our history approximately half the Sangat in the Gurdvara has been Muslim and half Hindu- I speak of Sangat in our historic ancestral sacred holy homeland of Greater AfPak & environs  the Battles & wars of the NW Subcontinent were never sectarian per se— the conflict was over good governance or lack thereof <banned word filter activated> aurangjeb whom dirty jewess academic  audrey t defends had  his brother murdered and never arranged his daughters marriage in addition to the atrocities against 4 sahibzade u people who say five beloved were from all different castes and regions of India and thus justify intermarriage with even Xtianity freaks tell me why we can’t marry pious musalmann because thirty percent of Guru army was is consisting of Musalmann.- I know their conception rites r different than standard GarbhDhan sanskar of hinduism and there is special recitation from Gurbani for Sikh conception rite and jain by birth Osho says it’s always important to say prayer before intimacy otherwise one is a criminal  rehit maryada says Sikh must marry Sikh and musalmann cannot upon pain of death alter religion - what is rational behind this - ?  I know Pashtun helped our Panth at one critical point in our history— we promised Ummah we would help them if their religion were ever in trouble— well it’s been decades now since the beleaguered Ummah has been suffering the most abject heinous persecution- it’s about time we helped but how?  the people who say Sikh descent from Hindu r stupid because hinduism is a way of life not an ethnicity- Julia Roberts is hindu  the Jats Ramgharia Pashtun Rajput lineages are distinct from caste varnashram system  which is social setup a commonwealth of sorts  caste is from Portuguese word chaste- varna is Tamil Dravidian word for colour - colour of disposition and character of the guna innate qualities of Brahman Kshatriyas vaish sudra - idiots think colour refers to melanin or lack thereof  these Iranic tribes r of south central Asian origin  Anyway don’t listen to anything a non Dharmik person tells u of our history- the tribes comprising the backbone of our Panth have existed since time immemorial- once we were Buddhist some of us Zarathustra some hindu- described simply as “indian pagan” by dr Elst  pagan is variation of Bhagwan   there r Sikh of Afghan descent-Pashtun descent Arabic descent Euro origins too including German Dutch Russian and Bengal origin Sikh  where Akbar failed at creating new religion I would like to succeed/ Baba Nanak blessed Akbar’s Seven Generations to remain in power   mine is simply the renewal and revival of something religion decisively destroyed: Romance- sachaPyar i write book too            
    • If u wake up late. It makes ur whole day late. So have 2 fail proof plans. Get up at Amritvela. Cuz u know if u dont u wont fo ur nitnem. So if u fail to do ur nitnem, ur punishment is u HAVE to wake up at amrit vela the next day. You HAVE TO.  its the least u can do.  But if u do amrit vela and nitnem and then start waking up late. Then habe a time like at 11 am i have to go to Japji sahib. No matter what.  
    • Also new finding was the muslims in Saudi Arabi that turned sikh. Their writings were recently found. Bahi pinderpal singh talks about them in his katha. Google it. A muslim who had turned sikh during guru nanaks time was buried alive or stoned to death. Sorry forgot the name
    • Panjabis. Or girls from sikh families where the grandparents are amritdhari but their kids and grandkids are not.  You can also marry amridhari girls. If you promise to take amrit soon. 
    • Yes. Science and the west are catching up to the East and sikhi. They have adopted yoga and in the process of taking over meditation too. And they have really learnt that the mind controls the universe and resukts not just hard work. So they are preaching the Law of Attraction etc. Lots of ppl have been interested in the east and eastern spirituality from the 1700s. So the west have learnt and are teaching it back to us.  I have noticed this too and gives me the same reaction like we have the best religion, we dont need to learn from them. But God helps us learn thru life thru other people. Our scriptures are lessons, our sakhis examples, our sants/shaheeds role models. And life is our test, it helps us memorize and really understand thise lessons. So sometimes we will learn things better from outsiders. And thats ok. Just because we have the best religion doesnt mean we r the best students. Sometimes we dont pay attention in class, so God has to teach us outside the classroom, throw a pop quiz, have an outsider explain to us. Also we have lost alot. Like our artistry such as calligraphy, music, knowledge of vaidgiri/health etc. And some of it the gore know like yoga etc.
