Something which I recently acquired from the Sikh Talk page on facebook, worth a read:

Akal Security is, according to their website, 'one the largest U.S. owned security services provider to the U.S. Government'...'and is responsible for protecting critical government and industrial facilities'....'Akal Security specialises in providing security for critical federal government facilities, state and local government agencies and military installations.'

.

.

This includes the infamous I.C.E, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the government detention centres that have been in the news lately following the recent U.S policy of separating families at the borders and taking away kids from their parents, locking them away in cages.

.

.

The beneficiaries of this policy are Sikh.

.

.

In fact, a quick visit to their website, specifically the careers page, and the first vacancy that appears is an 'Armed Detention Officer' where duties include 'Maintain constant guard, physical control and observation of detainees at all times and 'Comply with all applicable post orders, ICE directives'.

.

.

Is this another fine example of Sikh values are American Values?

.

.

The company is based in Espanola, New Mexico, and has landed more than $1 billion in federal contracts after the Sept. 11 attacks. The Sikh company continues to profit from the ongoing suffering of those that encounter border control and the recent policy involving family separation.

.

.

.

We witnessed this week the Trump administration attempt to justify this abhorrent and inhumane policy of family separation according to the Bible. Would it be likely that we could see the CEO of Akal Security, Nirmal Kaur Khalsa, similarly justify the policy and their contractual obligations on Sikh grounds?

.

.

The method by which the children are being taken away is that the staff at these centres are telling the parents that their children are being taken away for baths, only to never return.

.

.

.

Akal Security is responsible for recruiting and training the individuals that commit such acts under the rubric of 'essential duties'. They are in large part the ones locking away the kids and separating families and do so as a Sikh organisation.

it is interesting how a two bit operation suddenly got government clearence despite yogi harbhajan's court cases for phone/financial scams, sexual abuse and rape, and other criminal activity under the umbrella business organisations he ran. Is this a long term plan to bring the name Khalsa and Akaal through the mud ?

I wouldn't be surprised if Yogi Bhajan was an undercover rss agent lol. 

BTW, notwithstanding that why did he have to create a hodgepodge by mixing sikhi with yoga. I heard his videos , most of them don't even make sense . He speaks as if he's speaking on einsteins' theories and then says "Its not for you . you won't understand it . its for the next gen"

he was Indira Gandhi's friend and there is  an eyewitness account by Gurusant Singh in his autobiography that he offered to kill Sant ji when he met her in India in the 80s. SHe declined the offer...
he also mentions the couple of white sikhs who did stay in Amritsar  were told to leave prior to the attack as this wasn't their fight ...

    • I think this is due to the big improvement of regional cinema industries. I remember watching punjabi movies 10-15 years ago. They were very inferior to bollywood movies. In terms of story lines, special affects and general quality of production. This was understandable though as Punjabi cinema was just starting to come good and was not well fincanced .Many of the early punjabi films were just about some macho punjabi guy acting like a gangster with big mucha lol. I think those days are gone we are now seeing some good story lines and productions instead of those stereo typical films that were made before in the 80's and 90's. Poeple can relate more to their own cultual language films more then the hindi type nonsence films. That glorify khans and muslims.Punjabi films can promote Sikhism and Punjabi language and do much good for punjab and punjabis by making good moral films to adsress alcohol and other issues affecting us. What we need is better actors, directors and producers to steer punjabi cinema to a bright future. Maybe it can become a global force? Tamil film industry is huge and they do good at promoting their language, culture and faith.
    • i was just saying that they have created some of the most beautiful architecture and art work   even if the ideas were stolen.  Raphael, michaelangelo etc are some of the greatest artists ever   
    • Why is the comparison wrong?  I am not asking this question as atheist, I am just wondering if there was any reason we had so many Gurus?
    • Punjabi movie industry is gd. Many Punjabi movies are really gd. Most Punjabis i know now only watch Punjabi movies and not Hindi movies, even pakistanis watch Punjabi movies. Punjabi movies are cultured and many have a Sikh theme, hindi movies on the other hand is just full of kanjars and kanjris stripping on screen and doing dirty scenes  you can't actually sit with family and watch hindi movies. Last few yrs there have been many Sikh themed punjabi movies and movies focusing on issues in the punjabi community. The movie Ardas is really gd and is about faith in waheguru and other issues in the punjabi community. Movies like rab da radio, daana pani are really good and about families and breakups. Some Punjabi film makers are also making art house movies   like anhay gore da daan  which is about poverty in the dalit community and chauti koot about a family caught up between the karkhu singhs and army.     Punjab 1984 was good really gd for the 1st half but the 2nd half was not that gd!     Shareek was gd too 
    • People are turning off Bollywood in droves and Punjabi cinema seems to be booming. What you are seeing is the burgeoning of regional cinema, localism seems to be the priority over the centralised Hindu speaking media. So much that the Hindi speaking Mumbai Punjabis in the Bollywood film industry have suddenly discovered their Punjabi roots.
