It's a mix of both. We have a combination image of being religious fanatics who don't compromise (in the way of Dastar, Kirpan, Kesh, Tables in the Langar); willing to take down opponents in and out of the country ( Air India); violent gangsters; oversized mansions; truckers; politically aggressive ( dozens of MP's, MLA's, Party Leader of NDP, Cabinet Members); and generally a bit pushy to get our way and get ahead. For better or for worse, we here in Canada represent a case study for being both a successful and disliked (for valid reasons in some ways) diaspora Sikh community.

Sikhs collectively tend to have "nice guy syndrome " , we want to be liked. 

But sometimes you can't be liked by everyone.

I agree, it's true, but lets be honest what is that's made them have a different image to UK Sikhs, it their Sikhi or is it their Punjabiness? 

A lot of the time it's the negative behaviours that give a community a tougher image/reputation.

Another thing is they live closer together, while here in the UK Sikhs are spread apart, scattered up and down the country. Other than Southall I don't think there is a majority Sikh area, and even Southall is probably Sikh majority because of the fojis. 

Are there many 'majority' areas in Canada, or just streets ?

There are lots of large areas in UK with large minority Sikh populations like in Ilford/Barking  E London, Gravesend in Kent, much of Midlands and parts of Yorkshire

    • It's been pretty comprehensive. Sticking just to the topic no question. 
    • Basics of Sikhi made a video about that. The shabad was mistranslated.
    • Quick question: Didn't Guru Gobind Singh Ji say he wasn't Waheguru. Wondering if Guru Sahib meant that he wasn't solely Akalpurakh and how that would fit with the quotation above... Bhul Chuk Maaf 🙏
