Judge Expells Wolverhampton Gurdwara Committee

Recommended Posts

Well if donation money was not accounted for and went missing no wonder they got kicked out. All gurdwara commitee's  are corrupt, we should take that as a rule of thumb, some more so than others and these people were legally found out to be corrupt by not being able to explain where the missing money went  they do not deserve to run a gurdwara.

Btw I want to understand why these idiots globally fight to be members of gurdwara commitee's? What grand prize is there draws such dodgy and incompetents to those positions?

Is it fame and prestige in the community?

Financial rewards of an easy  coushy job and good salary with little stress?

The power?

The easy way to push money into their own pockets by begging donations from the sangat?

Yes, all 4 of these.

Probably #1 the first one. In Punjab people who have a determination to be the "headman" become, variously, panch, sarpanch, councilman, mayor, MLA, MP, etc. In the West, that's often not possible, so they fight like dogs to become Gurdwara president.

When you're Gurdwara president, it's more like you're president of the entire community. To prevent that, I think we should encourage organizations like the North American Punjabi Association and City Sikhs and so on. 

People who have a leadership bug can go and become the local presidents of those types of associations, and be the "president of the community", meanwhile those who want to do seva can be in the Gurdwara committee.
