The only people making noise about Sikhs standing up for the rehit are those hippies who never attend a Gurdwara anyway unless it is someone's wedding. While they are they way they are, but what is su

Please, please, please watch this entire video. Not because you don't know the who, what and why of the Anand Karaj, but because of the way Bhai Jagraj Singh addresses the issue in a very diplomatic a

whats amazing is this type of topic somehow manages to get 500-600+ comments on fb posts, from mostly coconut/hippy fake sikhs, who come out from under their rocks, yet they are NOWHERE to be seen, wh

The BBC Asian Network is intentionally filled with a particular type of Asian that really in their private lives do not identify with their culture of origin.

They are coconuts who use their heritage as a vehicle to build their own careers.

The leftist metropolitan elite that run the BBC have a particular agenda where they have a definition/model of what the British Asian should be like and then try to socially engineer this using the likes of Friction/Nihal.

It is a shame that being follow opinions without seeing things critically,people are being brainwashed and they do not even realise it.

I wholeheartedly agree. Unfortunately, the coming generations in places like the UK have fallen for this social engineering, mostly due to related issues such as not wanting to be identified as the "extreme, angry brown person" (we can think radical Muslims for that), and as such we'll keep getting otherwise decent Asians running in completely the opposite direction, losing all perspective and balance, to ensure such labels aren't attached to them in order to fit in to an increasingly intolerant and reactionary society.

I think a lot of our people are stuck in the matrix and they need to take the red pill. It is a bitter pill to swallow but it is a necessary one.

Some of our people will prefer to take the blue pill and stay in the matrix.

The people who agree with Sunny/Friction are people who are not into Sikhi (blue pillers) and then try to rationalise to fit it into their narrative, they undergo such verbal gymnastics.

The people who are into Sikhi understand clearly what is happening.

The more into Sikhi one gets, the more we realise the world is like the matrix and it takes off the blinkers that blind so many.

That is why it is important for Sikhi to be instilled into our youth, so they grow up as much as possible without the blinkers.

I think it's the arrogance and the sense of assuredness these people cling to is what's so off-putting. Instead of introspection or self-realisation, they desire to change or mould everything and everyone to fit their blinkered worldview and lifestyles. That smacks of a huge lack of self awareness and humility.

Unfortunately, certain ingrained features of our own cultural psyche pertaining to social status and wealth - to the exclusion of other essential traits and qualities - are also a huge obstacle in gaining genuine insight into how to function as a person who can resist the attempts to engineer a certain type of person. Even those who have turned to religion apparently have done so only on the surface. Deep down such people are driven by the same ambitions and motivations as the so-called uninitiated. It's more than just adhering to a set of rules about how to live a life, but also about genuinely changing one's mindset to the very core of what makes us tick.

99% of the 'Sikhs' who have a wedding in Gurdwara have no clue about Sikhi, so if a person of non-sikh faith, wants to, why does it matter as they are atheists like those so called Sikhs. If anything that out of faith might actually adopt the Sikh religion. That's restricting.

I think the reason is that ignorant Sikhs for all their lack of knowledge by in large will still hold Maharaj Ji in the utmost esteem. A non-Sikh whether they are theist or atheist will not.

Well this is picking & choosing.

This kind off attitude to disallow AK in Gurdwara will drive a fair few people who are going to marry out of faith away. Oh well...

    • No. But it’s an interesting thread and still relevant. There’s not a massive amount of other active threads on this site Are there any Sikh schools in America or Canada (wherever you’re from ) ?

    • https://ommcomnews.com/india-news/offensive-photo-shoot-at-kartarpur-annoys-sikh-community Offensive Photo Shoot At Kartarpur Annoys Sikh Community   Offensive Photo Shoot At Kartarpur Annoys Sikh Community By OMMCOM NEWS On Nov 29, 2021    Share New Delhi:  A clothing brand recently came under fire after an alleged photo shoot at the Kartarpur Gurdwara in Pakistan. In the shoot, a Lahore-based model can be seen bareheaded, posing for the camera, compromising the sanctity of the place, Express Tribune reported. Pakistan Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and members of the Sikh community expressed annoyance over the fashion photoshoot at the Kartarpur shrine, Pakistan Observer reported. Chaudhry slammed the designer and the model for the photoshoot. “The Designer and the model must apologise to Sikh Community #KartarPurSahib is a religious symbol and not a Film set,” he wrote on Twitter. Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management committee, also condemned the act, calling it “desecration”. “Pakistan court issued arrest warrant of star who did dance video at Mosque; same must be done against this woman from Lahore as an example of treating all religion at par.” “Otherwise, any talk of respect for Sikhism is hollow,” he said. In another tweet, Sirsa commented: “Such behaviour and act at the pious place of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is totally unacceptable! Can she dare to do the same at her religious place in Pakistan? Imran Khan and the government of Pakistan should take immediate action to stop this trend of treating Sri Kartarpur Sahib as a picnic spot by Pakistani people.” Meanwhile, the clothing brand, Mannat, has issued a clarification on the matter. The Instagram page has since removed the controversial posts and released a statement, the report said. “The pictures posted on our accounts are NOT part of any shoot done by Mannat Clothing. These pictures were provided to us by a third-party (blogger) in which they were wearing our dress. Please note that Mannat has absolutely NO role in deciding how and where the pictures were taken,” the statement read. “However, we accept our mistake that we should not have posted this content and we apologise to every single person who was offended by this. All the holy places are very sacred to us.” “The pictures and posts have been removed from all our media channels. Again, we apologise wholeheartedly for hurting the public sentiment. Believe us when we say we had no such intention.” On the other hand, Pakistan Punjab Police in a statement said that they are investigating all aspects related to this incident and strict legal action will be taken against those responsible. “Management of the concerned brand & model are being investigated. Worship places of all religions are equally respectable,” reads the statement, as per the report.
