It's a difficult one this, to turn people away goes against Sikhi but we have to take into account the time's we live in, most Gurdwara's have CCTV for security but the amount of time I've been to a Gurdwara and it's empty is unbelievable, no one is in the main hall where maharaj is, you can't find a giani for love nor money so who's looking after the place.

In this case i get the feeling he was going to do it regardless, if it wasn't at the Gurdwara he would have taken the chance somewhere else.

Remain as we are, but have contingencies in place to prevent something like this from happening. Shutting up shop is not the answer, and neither is hoping others don't misbehave. Proactive not reactive.

I think it is better if we simply attract more people to the gurdwara. Instead of making Sunday the gurdwara day, perhaps if the youth was taught of the importance of sewa or they could use their spare time to read from the books/granths at the gurdwara, the atmosphere would be different and sangat/guru ji would be protected (though it is maharaj ji protecting us and themselves)

I agree with this.

There was once an issue where a person ripped the SGGSJ.

If we have more sangat we can actually safe guard the Gurdwara.

Many Gurdware today have some Singhs outside and inside guarding the Gurdwara for safety.

Given our maryada of acceptance of humanity , where and how should we draw the boundaries at Gurdwarey to ensure safety of sangat ?

I know everyone regardless of Ethnicity or religion is allowed in a Gurdwara but if one was drunk should they not be allowed? That will just higher the risks of damage.

We need security guards in Gurdwaras. Either pay them or have Singhs voluntarily do this sewa.

Our Guru is our King, our Royal Highness, it is only fit that Pehredars are a must. Its a sign of royalty & respect for our Guru Ji.

Also Bibian need to be more careful & vigilant when alone in places, at off hours.

And given the recent attacks, we should be more vigilant esp when a shady looking person enters.

Just given the current situation in west, Sikhs need to be more vigilant & aware in general.

I have never heard of a drunkard being allowed into the Gurdwara before.

It simply wouldn't happen in the UK. Non-Sikhs here know and follow the rules if they want to enter in this respect.

Moreover, especially not at 10pm. Most Gurdwaras close their gates at 8pm.

What were the sewadars thinking? Or did he just intimidate or overpower the few elderly sangat there to make his way in. If not, then the sewadars have some serious questions to answer.

It looks like there is a pub/bar in close proximity to the Gurdwara.

But the thing is, you wouldn't really expect sangat to be inside a Gurdwara at 10PM unless it was some sort of special event.

We should have guards standing outside the Gurdwara at least. Otherwise next time a drunk person goes into a Gurdwara, Waheguru knows what they will do.

Why was the 26 year old Bibi alone in Gurdwara at 10pm ?

Are all Sikh Bibis in Britain stupid !

Singh, let's not start blaming the poor bibi. This was quite unlikely to happen but since it was next to a bar or pub it was most likely to happen.

Ramgharia gurdwara in Slough had to close their toilets due to some junkies shooting up in there.

There is a certain amount of risk you are going to have with being open to all.

Just need the some level of vigilance but this is going to be based on the location of gurdwarae.

We don't always have to aim at the Gurdwara, there should be more self-defence classes for Bibi's.

The way you said it was as if this was all Bibi's fault. I think it was because of the position the Gurdwara is currently in.

Gurdwara or any other place, Bibi's should not venture out alone at night.

Firstly one should avoid going out late if not then go in a group or with family.

    • Thank Waheguru that our pendus aren't in the desperate and ignorant position of the past when they'd jump into these foreign jungs and totally take their eyes off what was going on in their own homeland/backyard. If war does break out, there will probably be blow back against some Sikhs due to a general rise in 'anti-brown' racism as well as the usual ignorant 'mistaken identity' issue Sikhs have with sullay in various parts of the world.  All brothers and sisters should be ready to hold strong defensive positions in this potential situation. We should also be VERY careful about scared or opportunistic sell outs from amongst us, especially when they inevitably get masqueraded around like lackey tokens. Like the 'donkeys' in The war for the planet of the apes. Great film to watch, if you haven't already!  
    • Yh Amrita pritam is very overrated. She's more famous for her affairs than her actual work. Media always mentions her affairs. Shiv Kumar batalvis work is a lot better than hers yet nobody outside of Punjab has heard of him. Amrita pritam was a slapper.  Theres many indian pornstars  sahara knite, priya rai   etc   yet they got sunny leone and then they released that movie about her with kaur in the title when she doesnt even use kaur in her name.  Currently theres a drama on colors tv called choti sardarni and it's about a sikh female who gets pregnant before marriage and then her mother forces an abortion and gets her married to a respectable sardar. 
    • I think the jews are gonna build there temple soon as well   they've already started gathering material  But they gonna need to demolish that mosque first on the temple mount.  
    • Yh I think theres a major war coming up soon    things are boiling up between Iran and Saudi and America keeps stirring the pot.   The middle east is gonna collapse.   Trump loves jews   his own daughter converted and married a jewish man. 
    • Iran Do you guys think USA plans to invade Iran?  First there was the drone strike and Iran stopping oil carriers in the Strait of hormuz where 20% of the world's oil passes through - https://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.php?id=7830 I'd like to point out that the strait of hormuz is like a key strategic access point that could be fought over in a global conflict, like in World War 1 you had the Dardenelle straits, in World War 2 you had the Suez Canal. maybe in world war 3 you'd have the strait of hormuz.  The US Also doesn't it seem odd that USA is so concerned by a possible Iran attack on Saudi Arabia to the point of imposing furthersanctions? I mean what business should the Us have with that when the Saudis are the victims. I've thought that perhaps Usa or the saudis attacked the plant to further conflict with Iran, but I'm not really sure. Do you guys think this is part of a larger plan where usa plans to invade 7 countries: Iraq,Somalia,Libya, Syria, Sudan,Lebanon,Yemen Sometimes I think there's no difference in Trump and Obama,in that they're planted politicians.They both seem to be taking steps in the 7 country invasion plan. Look at the first link below for more detailed info. Click the first link that pops up in the search bar if you don't have those ad results. I tried pasting the link directly but it doesn't seem to successfully redirect you to the reddit thread.  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=pnac+a+document+between+israel+and+Us+to+invade+7+countries&atb=v168-1&ia=web The Jews Also doesnt trump seem to be leaning towards Jewish interests and pro-Israel? I mean isnt it convenient for Israel that middle eastern countries surrounding it are being invaded by USA and having "democracy spread" for their benefit? Here's a video about Trump and the Jews, like always do your own research and point out anything you find interesting here.  https://www.bitchute.com/video/i2JYZcaoaY2g/ The Simpsons I mean the Simpsons predicted Trump would be president back in the year 2000. Surprisingly, they  also predicted he would crash the economy and you see reports of the coming 2020 recession.  here's the simpson clip and below that is more of the same kind if you're interested:
