I think the British army is a good for our people to keep the martial spirit alive, learn how to shoot and how to survive in the wild. They days of military interventions on behalf of the USA are pret

The British and Sikhs have a long history together. British historians studying Sikhi and writing it in their books. The 2 Anglo-Sikh wars and annexation of Punjab. And the prince Dalip Sing

Kinda off topic but seen this gem on twitter. The Sikh Raj held weight.

You never know when things could turn you know!

tension seems to be rising beneath the surface ...

Black dance group Diversity did a performance about Black lives matter on Britains got talent and the show received over 20,000 complaints. 

Media is shoving a lot of bame people on tv, a bit too many!  its as if they are trying to trigger a reaction from White folks. 

Should they stop singing "rule britannia" because Black youth don't relate to it was a topic on a morning show! Imagine how White people watching the show felt about that!

How ethnic minorities are being blamed for breaking rules and spreading the virus reminds me of a movie! Think it was called something like children of men. The movie was set in the UK and a massive virus has spread and the authorities are rounding all refugees/migrants up and making them live in ghettos surrounded by barbed wire. 

Yeah I know its just a movie but you never know what these people will do lol!

To be fair, some of the local lockdowns are occurring in areas where there is more ethnic diversity.  But it seems to be one particular ethnicity that seems to be prevalent in this when you look at the areas.

You should be aware, they make up 25 percent of your town. 

I know of those chicken and "chaiwala " places on a particular road where no social distancing is being followed.

Can you guess where it is yet? 😉

Farnham road? lol 

Yeah but how is that different to what's happening in White areas, In pubs, on beaches or any other place that they throng.

Ethnic minorities live in densely populated places so that might be the reason.

Beaches for example are outdoors. And those days in general are less frequent.

The takeaways have been consistently open during lockdown. 

Pubs you have a good point on.

You have to consider that the levels of Diabetes and other chronic illnesses are more prevalent amongst our people than goreh. 

This makes us more vulnerable to Covid.

large towns and cities will obviously have more cases. Areas that are over 80% Whites like Bolton and Preston are among the areas with the highest cases.

    • Back in the days, women of Panjab (regardless of religion) wore either a Suthan style trouser (which could be loose or tight), a Ghagra or a Tehmat/Dhoti (mainly west Panjab). They wore a Kurti, which was shorter than the modern Kameez and if you go a bit back, some could be seen wearing a Choli too. Suthan style trousers eventually evolved into the modern salwar during the 1900s.  Panjabi women from Amritsar 1875.   The Suthan looked like this. These photos range from the the 1870s to early 1900s.     The Ghagra was worn over trousers when heading outside, mainly by Sikh and Hindu women.  The Dhoti or Tehmat was mainly worn by Muslim Panjabi women from a certain area of west Panjab as Sikh women preferred a Ghagra. 
    • Paper seems glossy. And it seems in great condition for something so puratan.  I don't think back home are too hot on verification. More details would be great, but I'm not holding my breath.
    • Nah, he was jutt innit. Have to be 'bruin' innit. lol!  Plus, why miss a chance to prance around like a bandher! Who in their right mind would do that? You're not making sense.    Plus it was a low risk move in any case. Even if she blanked him, he could always go back to bhund maaring his synchronised bhangra 'brothers'.     
    • First, It is all in the hukam of Sri Akal Purakh sahib. Sikhs are never afraid of the numbers (there were days, where we were left just in thousands). Have we been focused on numbers, whole world would be amritdhari by now. So, that is not enough reason to allow multi-religious wedding where other faith teaching such as kafir ideology, my god is superior of all etc..  Second, if they are not sikh religious then why not get married in a church or court house? What tomorrow, you are going to raise the point that we are small in numbers and we may offend someone, so why not we simple remove the rule of covering head in hazzori of guru sahib. Where it will end? 
    • Harmonium is not what our guru sahib jee used. However, i have no quarrel whether to use it to not as long as focus is 100% being devoted to Gurbani.  In Sikh culture, salwar kameez and kurta pajama is also not our culture either. Not many ppl are aware of this.
