I have no idea but they have started posting on their Facebook page again after a few months.

I noticed that too, that's why I thought it better to ask everyone if they knew something that we don't. I've got no personal beef with them and I'm not a fan. But for the sake of youth parchar I hope this is resolved properly and put to bed.

Is this jatha under the AKJ umbrella, or have they splintered off? Tough to keep up with these developments.

They imitate some of the practices of the Jatha, notably Saas-Giraas Simran and Rehansbhais, but they've never been a limb of the AKJ.

They seem to draw their influences from quite a few of the older traditions within Sikhi, particularly the Sants.

"youth" ?

"put to bed" ?

Given the allegations and circumstances, probably not the best choice of words !

LOL

This whole samasya seems silly.. That's why I don't prefer talking to people.

im not anti social but I'm anti i.d.iot lol. I don't know who is an i.d.iot or not so I just keep my distance.

Oh I see. I'm assuming the sant figurehead they pay obeisance to is Baba Ranjit Singh? Or am I off-target with that one?

They strike me as a hybrid of quite a few groups as you mentioned, notably AKJ and Nanaksar.

No you're bang on, Baba Ranjit Singh is particularly well regarded, if the NKJ can be said to belong to any Jatha it would be his.

They wear the garb of the Nihang Singhs, perform Kirtan in the manner of the AKJ, and Katha in the manner of the sants/nanaksar. They're like a Sikhi potpourri.

Quite a slick 21st century operation they've got going on there. Impressive. Calculated but impressive.

    • I didn’t say there is no racism in the Uk or that there is no casteism in Panjab.  I have family back home involved in politics so I have primary sources for my info as well.  I think with all respect, you are the one ‘talking shyte’ here. Again, to address directly the main points of the original post of this thread, it’s not just jatts in high positions and there are already quotas. I agree casteism is a major obstacle for Ekta in the Panjabi Sikh community. But, for example, more qualified people from ‘higher castes’ (including Tarkhans I think) cannot get jobs or university places because they go to the ‘scheduled castes’ first .
    • To me that's like saying because Priti Patel and Rishi Sunak are where they are, there is no racism in the UK.  You talk shyte. 
    • Akaal Takht Jathedar is from a ‘low caste’ Same with recent ex-Chief Minister Channi. There have been quotas in place for many years to ensure ‘lower castes’ get many reserved political seats and (from my understanding) the same with senior Religious positions. Same for government jobs and university places in general. You have made a topic and points here which are quite inaccurate and misleading
    • I think nonjut Sikhs should just wait for these retards to hang themselves.  They say if you give a fool enough rope they'll hang themselves....I think they are halfway into that process already. Generally they are too retarded to have any even remotely constructive or intelligent conversation/negotiation with (as the forum has shown over the last decade).  Let's watch the inevitable show.   Hopefully it will be more interesting and stimulating than this one:        
    • With the jat Sikhs making the majority in Punjab and having the most power . IE in terms of politics and also religiously. IE all major people controling and running the Gurdwaras being from this demographic. Should other castes be give some kind of quota for top jobs so we can have more equality and diversity in the Punjabi society and social strata. Or are they to power hungry and unable to share?  I think that is the only way of achieving a strong United Punjab instead of one where there is to much in fighting and resentments.
