Kurds abandoned after fighting ISIS

Recommended Posts

Interesting stuff posted by Ranjeet above. I gather it's a complex situation with lots of actors:

But I have to reiterate, Waheguru forbid, but if it comes to some global ww3 type conflict, I don't want Sikh brothers getting slaughtered for anyone elses causes. 

We've been through enough of that already. 

On top of that (for the UK crew) if some of these Islamist groups start to do their usual thing here (and Turkey has a strategic reason and a history of supporting certain fundamentalist groups - hence a high likelihood of some captives being freed at some point - and maybe reaching here), we're going to need our peeps here. Even outside of this war scenario, if we get a serious economic crash here, with all the usual violence and racism that usually follows it, we need our fighters here, keeping our community safe. We don't want to be running around relying on others looking like weak, emasculated  b**ches. 

We'll probably be compelled to consolidate ourselves here in such a situation, it's a shame we can't do these things without extreme external stimulus.

We did have situation back in 2011 if you recall during our summer of riots.

The community was very quick to galvanise and organise themselves.

When there was blackberry messages about raiding Southall, there were about 300 Singh's guarding the Park Avenue gurdwara within a space of a few hours.

There were patrols up and down Southall Broadway as well as Old Southall.

Same thing was happening in Gurdwarae up in the Midlands. I remember there being a kala knocked out in a pool of blood whilst trying to attack a Gurdwara. 

The Sangat knows when and how to organise when it needs to. Don't under estimate it too much.

Yeah sure. That's why they dealt with the grooming issue so efficiently and quickly.............

Donald Trump threatens to 'drop' ISIS fighters at UK border if Britain does not take them back as he labels European allies a 'tremendous disappointment'

  • Trump launched a furious attack moments after announcing death of ISIS leader
  • He warned the US would not pay for hundreds of fighters to stay at Guantanamo
  • If Europe does not take them he said he would 'drop them right on your border'

    • No, this was different guy. He wasn't even a public figure. Funny thing with AKJs is the "Nervous Indian" didn't have to go through any public apology stuff and that was the worst! (If you don't know of the Nervous Indian thing, then you're lucky.)
    • Who resides in the Sangat ? Guru. So the Guru is sangat and the sangat is Guru. So would you not want to serve our Guru the best you can? So what if people come to the Gurdwara for the food, make the best and let them come. Have big hearts guys, Guru tha langar sabho awaay, let them come the house of Guru Nanak is open to all. Tell you what, you moaners why don't you cook up dhal and roti at home for a week you will soon get chittar. This is Guru ghar, let it be the best you can, make the best and serve the best and Guru ji will smile on you. What is wrong with the proliferation of Akahnd Paaths and Sukhmani sahibs, you think people were doing a sin ! Why shouldn't they do paaths at the gurdwara and why shouldn't you make the best langar you can? Everyone has sharda and everyone wants to make the best . Bar humbug to the lot of yer!   😀
    • Yes. Being intellektual means you are boring. Keneda particularly promotes this. They love the Larping that goes along with the rural life. 
    • Be mindful of quality educational institutions because it would encourage further exodus out of Punjab. It also depends on where you think educational institutions come from, what I mean by this whether it is public (government funded) or privately funded. There are plenty of privately funded colleges and universities. For example, there is Lovely University. This is privately funded. They have a huge campus built not far from Jalandhar.  You cannot have these educatonal facilities without having the jobs to go with it.
    • Well I had one relative (through marriage) from back home who was snatched up to do his MSc in Germany (something about auto-driving cars with BMW). When he finished that, he was snatched up by America (Texas to be specific) to do his PHd overthere, all he had to pay for was his ticket there and they have set him up with uni fees and accomodation. Another female relative in the same branch of the family just got a job in a Panjabi university as a Chemical Engineer lecturer, so things are happening.  Not enough in my opinion though. Says a lot that hordes of sons of relatively affluent pendu families back home aspire to come to the UK and become builders. There is an anti--intellectual culture back home. There is little to no culture of appreciating/developing gian for gian's sake - and it explains a lot of what we see.
