UNITED SIKHS WORK ON URGENT TIMETABLE TO SAVE AFGHAN SIKHS

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?

    • If this is accurate then sikhs had a very high growth/birth rate in the 60s till the mid 70s and then the growth rate started declining.   
    • your right about that we can also see that with whites and sikhs who live in america, canada and well of spacey parts of the UK where they have very little interaction with muslim ghettos in large numbers. These people tend have flavorable views of islam and muslims but the Sikhs who actually live in parts dominated by muslims know the score they see how muslims subjudgate and look down upon non-muslims and its those Sikhs who show us the glimpse of the future of minorities once muslims take over areas and lands.
    • Your average sikh in punjab probably has hardly had much contact with a muslim tbh  muslims make only around 1% of punjabs population.  The Sikhs that witnessed the partition are now really old or dead. So sikhs in pubjab have no ide what it is like living with muslims when their population is large. Your average sikh in punjab has probably just spoken to kashmiri carpet sellers and gujjars and that's it. Hindus on the other hand in places like UP  know what it's like living with a sizable muslim population, the hindus in Bengal know, delhi, etc   same with the Buddhist in Myanmar and us sikhs in the west, basically anyone anywhere in the world where there is a large muslim population knows what it's like!  Whenever sikhs in punjab see acts of violence against muslims in other states they get all defensive of the muslims because they have no idea what it is like living with a large muslim population.  That's why sikhs in Malerkotla were protesting against the caa Once the population of muslims is a big minority in punjab only then will they know what it's like. Until then there really is not much you can do  Other than wait for them to experience it themselves. 
    • I dont think the are abrahamics are ones who run india i think the ones who really rule are adharmic atheists types who use religions to suit their needs. and your right about the need to be adharmic and last time that happened Sikhs were able to get rule. Sad reality of this world and existence in order to get political power or stop being genocided yourself you have to be ruthless and adharmi at times too to stop your own people getting exterminated. From my analysis the only thing preventing Sikhs from reacting violently at the moment is betrayal from fellow Sikhs. We learn't from 1984 that the Sikhs themselves were indian agents working part of the indian establishments agenda. Theres cases going through indian courts right now where akali dali members of punjab Parliament were convicted of killing innocent civilians who they later blamed on sant bhindranwale and gave the indian state justification to attack darbar sahib. But some how these same people survived all the state violence and eventually got selected by akali dali for political power? This is why no one trusts akali dal and any jathabandi any more because we dont know whose working for who. But what we do know is anyone killing innocent civilians is defo not working for the interests of the sikh community and defo some governments agents.
