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.

    • not if its haram but dnt choke on it bruv otherwise u can forget about doin parchaar every place ur big tedh takes u innit.
    • forgot to mention tht the focus shud be on those worth savin n tht aint whitey. these ppl have everythin in life. everythin. they live extremely comfortably yet they will neva give a thought about browny sufferin in poverty n war. dnt u think theyd have done something about it by now considerin their history in these places? they dnt care about u unless ur white. thts jus a fact. they really resent us n wish we wud disappear off the face off the earth asap. n dnt be silly to think this is an angry rant either about a few bad ones here n there. these folk r everywhere across the west. dnt be fooled by any of em. unless u live a closeted existence n think they dnt mean any harm. tht sound like ppl worth savin to u? look at the white kid who mimicked the appearance of a sikh to perve on little kids in gurdware toilets n give em wedgies. n then theres 3h0. thts how grateful n deservin these ppl r for sikhi. 100% agree on efforts bein better spent on 'india' on extremely poor ppl wiv similar culture/faith/tradition etc. this makes the most sense. the home of sikhi n where the mission started wud mean a lot of sikhi wud be preserved far more strongly as originally intended. n the ppl will not only be more receptive to the teachings than othas but far more deservin n grateful than the greedy white.
    • According to the akal takt eating or not eating meat does not make you any less or more Sikh. So get your facts right.  Eating meat. Is our right! To make us strong and feed our hunger.  Carry on eating your cabbage stew. While I tuck into my Pork joint like a real man. You sissy veggie luvin softee. 
    • ur one of em n the truth hurts. u dnt keep kes n u eat meat for taste yet u believe ur some sorta ambassador for the panth? u think u can save whitey by educatin em on sikhi wiv a haircut n bacon stuck in ur teeth? r u serious bruv? its jokers like u who cause so many problems we have today by settin these precedents to suit u.  sikhi aint a sweet shop. practice the teachings of sikhi urself first before u start preachin to othas.
    • I think we should give ajeet  break. He is a grown man and knows and realises he has made some mistakes. But why keep going on and lecturing the guy.  Im sure non of us are perfect and have some skeltons in tje closet. Would we be brave enough to come online and tell all.  Know we would rather hide and pretend we are perfect. Get a grip and realise that we all have done wrong in the past.
