Ah Gurdas Mann there is a special place in hell for a sell out like him who has destroyed countless young lives and led countless people astray into the arms of the Dambhis like Laadi shah.

they are cogniscant as far how they can convert the image into pounds, dollars and pence... they are wretched Gurdas maan is the starting point of the tumbling of sikh values with his 'dil saaf h

Bro it's because most Sikh women realise that the prostitute wants the oxygen of publicity so the best thing we can do is fight it quietly and legally and by dropping subscriptions to Zee (assuming it

From a cultural P.R. and optics perspective, as mentioned by OP, it's a positive thing a certain aspect of our culture is thriving not only in India but wherever in the world our people reside. One doesn't have to be an admirer or even a listener of such artistes and their music to understand the big-picture, objective, cultural aspects of getting our ideas, our ways, and our language "out there" in these times when the growing global mood and desire is moving currently in the direction of erasing those aspects of our nature and being that makes us different from each other even if those differences are perfectly just and unobjectionable.

To be fair, I struggle to listen to most of it, lmao. It's just basic level stuff designed to get people dancing or in some cases over-sentimental about an airbrushed past.

Absolutely! Another example is of that behsharam bollywood n indian media anti sikh propaganda in full works is with a new docu/film about porn star/actress sunny leone. If she want to create a film, sanu ki..... But the film/docu is titled as "karanjit KAUR". Nobody barely acknowledges her real name or even knows, but why title it as that? Her surname is malhotra i believe, y hasnt that been used in the title? Its plastered all over fb/twitter. Disgraceful. 

obviously it is to tar all Kaurs with the gandigi of this 'actress'  God knows how many rapes are happening already but if it somehow becomes the case that our daughters and sisters are put at danger in daily life  then we need to shut it down

The appropriation of religious sentiment for cultural profiteering (pub, club today and dharmic geet tomorrow); intentional conflation of inimical cultural traits (misogyny, androcentrism, substance abuse and blind belligerence) with religious sentiments is beginning to tell on the kitsch Punjabi media. Punjabi singers are actually beginning to be questioned.

That was something I was tempted to add to yesterday's post, but I decided against it, lol. There's a certain responsibility on the part of these performers that comes with wanting to be the faces of a cultural movement (even if ultimately they are lining their own pockets despite their assertions to the contrary), and whether they like it or not, there's more than a hint of Sikh ethics and principles as a foundation of their appeal, especially since an element of the draw of their image is rooted in much of the valour and bravado afforded to our people that has been derived in part from our glorious and honourable religious history. I wonder how many of them are even cognisant of such issues.

    • Hopefully it's not more mangling of Sikhi with " Sikh" (Punjabi) and 'South Asian' culture https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/birmingham-2022-unites-sikh-community-23875249 Birmingham 2022 unites with Sikh community for South Asian culture festival at Walsall Stadium United Colours, a South Asian festival celebrating the Sikh community, will take place at the end of this month at Walsall's Bescot Stadium   By Robson McCallister 05:30, 15 MAY 2022 A huge South Asian festival celebrating Sikh culture and faith will be held on the pitch at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium at the end of the month. 'United Colours' has been organised by Sikh charity Global Sikh Union in association with Birmingham 2022 and will take place between May 28-29. The South Asian festival of culture will include over 400 musicians and will also host the Commonwealth Games Community Roadshow. A number of sports will be available for people to try including a mobile squash court. Aside from sport and music, the two day festival is an opportunity to celebrate Sikh history. Global Sikh Vision's head of operations Ashveen Kaur Kohli spoke about what historical elements attendees can expect at the end of the month.   “The main thing we want to bring to the events is that we have a historical exhibition. We’ll have an exhibition on the Sikh Empire and an art gallery. “It’s about coming and embracing history. Learning different things including the different rulings of India and bringing up a timeline of history. “Let’s not be afraid and scared of history. Let’s see the entire timeline for what it was, engage with it and be proud of the history. “Birmingham 2022 has been amazing and heavily involved in this event. 'United Colours' is an event for community cohesion and for the entire South Asian community - but we recognise it’s from Global Sikh Vision, a Sikh charity. “We’ve had meetings back and forth every week for the last couple of months. They’ve been incredible and we’re grateful that they’re joining us.” The involvement with the Sikh community comes after Birmingham 2022 was criticised by Sikh faith leaders last month. Cllr Gurdial Singh Atwal had said: "Since the Games arrived, we have had little or no contact from the Games Organising Committee, we are literally missing from the Games Cultural programme, just like other South Asian communities like the Bangladeshi and Pakistani communities." West Midlands Mayor Andy Street met with both the Sikh community and Birmingham 2022 on April 28 to address the diversity concerns that were raised. Mr Street tweeted: “It was great to hear the clear commitment from Games organisers to practical action in the next 90 days that will make a real difference for communities.” The upcoming festival will feature Birmingham 2022 Hometown Hero and wrestling coach Ranjit Singh who will give a talk on Sikh communities links to wrestling with Games mascot Perry the Bull also in attendance All of the fundraising on the day will be given to the British Heart Foundation with funds used for lifesaving treatment as well as to raise awareness to the South Asian community. Birmingham 2022 has been working with both Global Sikh Vision and Walsall Football Club for a number of months on the festival to ensure the event runs as smoothly as possible. Birmingham 2022 lead community engagement manager Abigail Shervington views 'United Colours' as a chance for people to get involved with the Commonwealth Games if they are unable to attend the event this summer.
