Recommended Posts

Well here is an example of a group doing their best, in fact spear heading the dialogue on helping Afghan Sikhs?  But they also help non-Sikhs.

You obviously have difficulty understanding the point of those who are criticising these organisations. The issue people have with these organisations like KA and US is that they are wasting huge amount of money replicating work that is already done by larger and more resource rich charities. 

KA went out to set up pretty pointless langars for Rohingyas costing some tens of thousands of pounds while larger charities and govts were donating and spending millions of pounds. The Rohingyas weren't exacting starving to death as they were in a Muslim country with a stable govt and which could easily supply food to these refugees. But KA wants publicity so they can put a few pictures on facebook and promote Ravi Singh. United Sikhs also might do work with Sikh issues but that is probably 10% at best, so do you want us to start praising these charities for expending 90% of their donations on non-Sikh issues replicating the work of larger charities just because they spend a pittance on Sikhs?

You obviously have difficulty understanding while you're here taking over a day to even come up with your bukwas that US is already helping Sikhs in Afghanistan.

Point is, no one is against doing charitable work for non Sikhs. Even puratan Sikhs did that. But problem is when you give 90% of your resources to non Sikhs and only 10% to Sikhs. That is sheer madness and utter moorkhta. 

 

It should be the other way around. 80%-90% should be going to uplifting gareeb and mazloom Sikhs and 10-20% should be going to non Sikhs and even animals and the environment.

 

I dont like to talk about my own daswand but for making a point I am mentioning it here now. I take out 10% of my net income for daswand. This Daswand I spend mostly on poor Amritdhari families in India and also for Parchar activities.

 

I give daan too but is separate from daswandh

 

"Gareeb da muh Guru di golakh" has also been misunderstood by our secular minded Sikhs. Gareeb here means Guru Ghar de Gareeb i.e. Gareeb Gursikhs.

I agree with that. My point is we need to focus on a charity, already prioritizing funds from the center out, or make one. 

Beyond that I think we need to reform Jathas outside the SGPC that focus on local health and strength of Sikhs and Sikhia and be so abundant about it we can also help others locally or send resources directly to validated Jathas in areas hit by disaster without need of a charitable organization. 

I agree Gurudwaras need armed guards. 

So let's do it. Not do Nindia of Sikhs already doing something. 

Let's get old school. Let's get timeless. Let's uncolonify the Panth. Let's get real representation and self determination.

It's cool. Just a few days and it wont matter right.

You know who only looks out for their own? <banned word filter activated>. 

You know who isn't even doing that? Y'all while your relatives in Afghanistan are in trouble. 

But united sikhs and khalsa aid are the problem right?

    • Logic being that when we had our Sikh raj society was much fairer no one went hungry when maharajah ranjit singh passed poor people it is said he gave away something to keep the people looked after. Sikh raj where all people was treated equally no religious community got to oppress the other, and there was equality of opportunity in his government and army too. Look at the capitalist societies today there is incredible wealth at the top 1% and incredible poverty at the bottom 99% of the pyramid. When we had muslims ruled over punjab we saw non-muslims were treated as 3rd class citizens and brutally oppressed same as christian british rule they racially oppressed the natives. And what do we have in present day punjab? its the elites all banding together keeping their chairs safe against the interests of the people they claim to represent. So we have the badals and captain amrinder singhs who are related by marriages. They pretend to be Sikhs, they appear to be sikhs but wWhat have they done for Sikhs and Sikhi? zero contribution really.......they have let the british and indian establishment drain the wealth of punjab dry. Why do they allow it? because they are leaders and puppets of the same corrupt regimes thats responsible for oppression sikhs and sikhi. The British establishment covers for the genocidal crimes of the indian establishment. Why? because the "elites" of these establishments have hoarded away the wealth stolen from our nations and communities so naturally like a den of thieves they look out for each other against the people they stole off from.
    • Yh i go through his page sometimes, some really interesting stuff 
    • 1st week i started skipping my legs hurt so much afterwards i couldn't go up the stairs! i actually went up and down sitting on the stairs lol   but now 4 weeks in i can skip 40 mins and still can go on longer.   i feels really good under the sun  sweaty and everything lol    t shirt gets drenched though which is annoying, i would skip with my top off but i have a very conservative shy sri lankan woman living nxt door and our wall is low and it would just be really awkward   shes really shy of me anyway.     it feels good doing it under the sun with the heat   
    • I can eat a lot at one go and then not eat for like 8 or 9 hours   but i spread it out to 3 or 4 times. iv stopped eating chocolate, sweets, etc  i had a sandwich in the morning vegan and now i just had a vegan burger in a brown bread roll, gnna skip for around 40 mins later on and then at night have roti.   if i hadn't had the burger i probably would of had porridge. but burger was really filling. the actual burger was 94cals   i have actually noticed a slight difference.  im not even fat, im not even big im only around 5ft8 and naturally slim, but last few weeks iv started developing this repulsive pig like looking layer of fat which i wanna get rid off!  i took my top off in front of the mirror and was like <banned word filter activated> do i look like but since iv started cutting down on food and the skipping, and doing other fat loss stuff from youtube iv actually noticed a difference. i eat fruit as well, strawberries, berries, apple, banana etc    greet tea, nettle tea etc i read somewhere treat your body like a temple and not a dustbin 
    • It is best to visit. Go there with an objective mind. It is important to look from several factors: -Employment  (remember that Canada likes to have something called 'Canadian Experience ', they may not recognise your qualifications and experience. You may need to re-train or go to a more junior role) -Housing (it is very expensive out there, probably more expensive than the UK) -Cost of Living (some things are more expensive there) -Schooling (if you have kids) You will have a different perspective to someone going from Punjab. Therefore your thinking is going to be more from a British perspective.  There is a show on BBC called Wanted Down Under. Even though this for British Expats looking to Australia and New Zealand, there are a lot of useful pointers and you can adapt that to Canada. There is also a website called Britishexpats.com, quite useful. Also when you go out there talk to apneh who moved from the UK, that will provide the best insight. Best of Luck!
