Dirty Politics of relabelling Langar and making Sikhs into Beggars

Recommended Posts

In an effort to undermine Guru Nanak Dev ji's concept of Langar and relabelling it as a RSS yojna , the GST on Langar fiasco has hit a new twist the reprieve on Hramandir Sahib is only for two years.

Bascially the tax is collected then if we prove more than 5000 people are served per month then we can apply to get our money back , whether we get it yet remains to be seen . If returned it will be returned under the title Sewa Bhog Yojna  and be counted as a government project not Guru ji's langar i.e. undermining the meaning of Guru ji's langar. It also means begging for the money back year on year and having to disclose gurdwara finances , sangat numbers ...a lot of worrying data to be in the hands of the enemy.

This is terrible.

Langar and Seva should go hand in hand. There should not be any financing or taxes in the equation. Otherwise, it's not vand shako or seva.

worst thing is they collect 2 years worth ahead of time and guess what the electionis coming next year so the BJP will probably pocket it and we are not talking small amounts SGPC has given over 230 crode rupee think how much sewa could be done with that even if it was sunk into co-ops to help the needy ... The other thing is GST is not exempt on sugar, butter, milk, ghee, any form of veg oils and the transport of same  and degh takes so much sugar and butter/ghee it is a direct tax on Degh. It shows justs how low these people are... and Harsimarat Badal is proud to announce the facts of this scheme .

If this is true it is a discrace by modi and the goverment. 

India is always trying to loot its citizens for every penny it can get. They have gone way to far. Trying to make Gurus langar and turning it into a government initiative to take all the credit for it.

    • ।ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖ਼ਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫ਼ਤਹਿ।  Please read this article by Bhai Manvir singh ji. Very insightful and clears up a lot of confusion.  http://manvirsingh.blogspot.com/2015/11/different-views-on-meat-reflections-on.html?m=1 ਜਉ ਸਭ ਮਹਿ ਏਕੁ ਖੁਦਾਇ ਕਹਤ ਹਉ ਤਉ ਕਿਉ ਮੁਰਗੀ ਮਾਰੈ ||੧||
      “You say that the One Lord is in all, so why do you kill chickens? ||1||” (Prabhaatee Kabeer Ji, Ang 1350) Hukamnama of Guru Hargobind Ji found at Sri Harmandir Sahib, Patna Sahib (published in Hukamname, edited by Gandha Singh), which states:
    • @jkvlondon point taken. I can imagine that tbh. I've already conceded that in hindsight it was a silly thing to do, and I concede again that if I was there actually witnessing it, it most likely would be a different story. Tbh I have seen some cringe or super cheesy sh!t at Amritdhari Doli's. Though not like this. There will always remain a formality between them. I was referring particularly to the fake@ss things - the munde wale taking advantage of the girls side which still goes on albeit not as it did in the days of old. Even the seemingly strong minded folks back down when it comes to their kurms highly unreasonable behaviour. All I'm saying is that ik duje naal pyaar naal milna chaida, jidha bhen bharavan naal mili da. No side should act like the others aafsar and should have the right to speak out. Come to think of it, I was once at a wedding where the munde wale actually literally threw the women at the door out the way and barged in - I was there too because I was a little kid. It was not pleasant and dangerous af. Needless to say we demanded maafi and payment later.
