Panjabi music scene is blowing up.

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.

He's exactly the person I've had in mind for a few years now when analysing certain aspects of this discussion.

Gurdas Maan started out as the Punjabi-Sikh Bob Dylan; his folk influenced lyrics (admittedly not entirely his own compositions) that broached frankly amazingly deep sentiments about life in general and our particular Punjabi mindset, eventually gave way to the kind of frothy nonsense that Malkit Singh has been churning out since day 1. The phrase, "artistic integrity" is one that's conspicuous by its absence in the lexicon of nearly all Punjabi artists and performers. 

Ladi Shah's dargah holds langars where drugs are openly distributed, for free, in the name of seva. Other than Dhadrianwale or the missionaries, no one else has called them out.

The "artist" who kept it real and then sells out for the $$.

How many times has that been seen before

Look at this pathetic tweet from a rapistan paper. Hardliner? When hindus were protesting a bollywood film for depicting a hindu princess wit muslim king, did these guys use words like "hardliners" to describe em? Doubt it. 

Yes, agreed. Propaganda. And she has no right to use Kaur in her name

Benti to Sangat :

Let's not give this prostitute the oxygen of publicity that she craves.

She wants Sikh to react angrily in order to generate her publicity.

Let's starve the prostitute of that on this thread by removing her image.

Whilst pressing the SGPC to ensure that she does not besmirch the noble name of Kaur in order to gain vile publicity to enrich her millionaire bank accounts.

That movie about the prostitute being released with kaur in it's name     why are sikh women not protesting about it? Why are kaurs not protesting? 

And what about sikh feminists like sukhjit kaur Khalsa or gurmehar kaur or Harnam kaur    ? Are they ok with it? 

It's always the men who mostly protest   in this matter women should too

The singhs who are protesting thus are just gonna be labelled extremists, women bashers, sexist etc   

Women, if they actually care, need to protest against this too

Couple of months back the met gala had a Catholic theme and most of the celebs wore slutty outfits and looked like slags  they also wore crosses and other Catholic symbols to go with the theme. Catholics were very vocal about it on social media etc, it was discussed on news shows and breakfast/morning shows. News papers had articles about it too. Even Piers Morgan spoke up and said how annoyed he was.

Catholics turned around and said the met gala would never have a Jewish theme or muslim theme because it would be very controversial and spark protests, which is very true.

Why do you think that is?

For all the claims of the patriarchy and misogyny what you really have is a sisterhood. 

Women will always back each other up, whether they are religious or not.

    • Yh that was another thing!  Some bhamans 14 yr old son died and they came to rams court asking him to make the boy alive again, ram then asked his council of rishis what to do and one of the rishis said that the boy has died because a shudra is going tapasya somewhere. The rishis said that in tret yuga that only a bhaman and ksyathria can carry out religious duties.  Because a shudra is doing tapasya it has created imbalance and it is the kings duty to sort the imbalance out.   So ram went on a mission looking for a shudra doing tapasya    and in the south country he came across a man hanging upside down on a tree meditating. Initially ram was impressed and asked him what he is trying to attain and the guy said that hes trying to attain the solar system and heavens,  then ram asked him what caste he belongs too,  the guy said he is a shudra, ram then realized this is the shudra that hes looking for and he took out his sword and cut his head off!   All the demi gods then started showering ram with flower petals. By killing the shudra the bhamans son came alive and the balance was restored again!  I have to say rams justice was all over the place in ramayan !   Ramayan happened in treta yug and the rishis in it say that in the current treta yug society was divided into 4 social orders by manu, the same guy who wrote the horrific manusmriti, and that in this yug the khsaytriyas have joined the bhamans in carrying out religious duties, and that kalyug will be the dark ages and that even the shudra will join in worship.   It's still a interesting read though lol!  Judging by rams tantrums and emotional breakdowns he definitely was not perfect.  I prefer lakshman and hanumans characters.  Poor sita is just depressed throughout the whole thing!  If ramayan is truthful to what treta yug was like then people definitely had ego and anger problems and were very lustful.   Promises were respected though and people stuck to their word! Elders were still respected as well. friendships especially brotherhood is really strong as well. People also did a lot of charity ...  Marriage was not respected though they all cheating on each other lol  a lot of promiscuous characters 
    • definitely a murderer he killed shudar for doing tapsaya, maybe that's why RSS love him so , he attacks foreigners and lowcaste people
    • It could very well be that Hindus see Rama as a flawed individual who had to overcome all his faults.
