Uk Leaving The Eu - Was It The Dastar Issue For Sikhs?

Recommended Posts

Guest Dastar

As a UK Sikh, I voted for the UK to leave the EU on the single issue concerning me "as a Sikh". This was the 'Ban on Religious Symbols in the Workplace Upheld' by the EU.

June 6 The European Court of Justice's advocate general said May 31 that private companies in Europe can ban all visible religious symbols in the workplace. According to legal experts consulted by Bloomberg BNA, the opinion requires employers to allow all religious symbols or none at all. Although nonbinding, the opinion is significant because it is likely to be followed by a similar binding legal ruling later this year by the ECJ, the experts told Bloomberg BNA. A binding ruling would redefine workplace dress codes throughout the 28-nation EU and could thus affect multinationals operating in the European Union.

Sikhs fought in Europe during WWI and WWII. Sikhs were accepted with Dastars then, why not now?

Financially, I may be worse off but my faith overrides all my financial concerns.

Because it served the European agenda at the time (i.e. getting extra muscle in battles they would have struggled to win otherwise), and the same religious symbols aren't useful to them now.

""Singho, time sambhalo te naam simran kro

Agge jo smaa dis reha, bhut bhyanak hai

Jisde jinni gurbani yad hai, oh padh skooga

Gurbani gutke te pothia milya nahi krne

Lok 5 singhs nu bhaalde firya krnge, ke 5 singh mil jaan

Te amrit sanchaar ho ske ""

( bab harnam singh rampur kheda)

You did the right thing, I am very proud of what you have done. Compromising your faith for money is what most Sikhs do, that's why no one takes them seriously. They are told to remove their turbans by the immigration officers when it suits them. The Sikhs don't have a clue whether they are coming or going when they are treated like this. I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart for your bravery to speak up and stick to your guns. I wish all Sikhs will follow your example and stand up against unfair treatment @ the airports and work places!

Sikhs fought because they were under the BR (British Rule) and had to. Their karma has not gone wasted, believe me.

    • The fact that this guy threw away his political career in order to marry her is example number 72,602,308 of how desperate singhs have become. (If you want to call this "trim singh" a "singh".) How thirsty and pathetic can one be? I have noticed a trend of somewhat successful singhs gladly settling down with women who few other people want (because of a tarnished reputation, or because they are way past their "sell-by" date, etc.). Usually, when these women were younger and in demand, they would have never considered a singh. But after it becomes obvious that they are struggling to settle down (because of their various issues) and are getting old, they are happy to settle for a simp with a pagh as long as he has some status/money.   This Bola guy probably thought to himself: "I wear a turban (and can't do a decent job tying it), and I am overweight and kind of ugly. But somehow a girl is talking to me! Isn't this amazing?! I should marry her!! Who cares if it kills my career? It will totally be worth it!!!"
    • 1. She looks much worse these days with her hair cut shorter 2. This whole story is really depressing. THREE thirsty Singhs basically had their lives ended or ruined. THREE thirsty Singhs. The real story is how desperate many Singhs are. I can't decide which of the three Singhs in the story is the most pathetic. 3. I'm not sure what to believe, but it seems like a real tragedy in any case 4. There is no excusing the behavior of Gagandip Singh and Harinder Shoker. But is it wrong to point out that they probably wouldn't have sunk to such depths if they weren't so thirsty and desperate for women? It reminds me of those stories of incel white kids going crazy and killing people. 
    • Probably people who live in areas with relatively large numbers of Sikhs (near a major gurdwara, for instance). But in general, I'd say educated whites are the most likely to have an awareness of Sikhs.
    • No (unless they live near the White Sikh headquarters in New Mexico).   While Sikhs are a tiny minority compared to Punjabi Sikhs. Most of the white Sikhs are people who were hippies in the 60s and 70s when eastern spirituality was a big thing and they somehow came into contact with "yogi" Harbhajan Singh or other white Sikhs. As far as I am aware, white Sikhs are not really passing Sikhi on successfully to their children/grandchildren. Once that old generation is gone, white Sikhs will probably have an even more negligible presence.
