Maybe because Jats are the only remaining group who are still actively alpha amongst the Sikh community.  We could also ask why are Jats the only group to aggressively take on Delhi in the protests.  

How much steroids and coke do these jut peasants need to take to make them feel alpha????  hahahahahaaaa!

Don’t say that bro you’re gonna hurt feelings of a certain ‘DollySingh’.  He still a hasn’t got over when his tribe got told leave by a few Kaleh armed with only sticks and stones from ‘Wakanda’.  Suc

There is a school of thought that says a lot of street hood culture with all the mannerisms that are associated with Black American culture do not originate from black people.

Most of it came from the South and came from White Redneck/White trash culture. 

Since most Black Americans starting point was from the South and then moving north and west.

So the blacks were influenced by the whites. 

So if this correct, this suggests that this stuff that is being mimicked is Southern White Redneck culture.

Tattoos of Khandas and other Sikh related things is just wrong. I've got a cousin in Canada who has a tattoo of a historical Sikh figure on his arm, its just wrong. 

But how are you supposed to stop people? 

They don't practice Sikhi so it comes down to getting Sikh tattoos or wearing Sikh t-shirts. That is what it narrows down to for them. 

SGPC said they're going ban actors from wearing paghs and imitating Singhs, but has that actually happened? Nothing is ever put into action.

Moneh in general should be banned from wearing paghs and carrying kirpans at anand karaj, that is just beadbi of dastar and kirpan.

Don't get me wrong I'm not knocking them down.

If a Gurdwara or Sikhs were to be attacked, these lot would probably be one of the first ones there to defend and fight!  Despite their lifestyle, their connection to Sikhi/Sikh is still there, and admirable, but obviously are very misguided. 

Remember when the riots were happening in the UK years ago? Started of as Black protests and then ended up being people breaking into shops and looting. They tried coming into Southall but were driven away. Rumours spread that they were coming to our town as well, and many guys sat outside the gurdwara all night, many of then being those type of moneh, including my cousin! Who gets up to "no good" 

If I had to pick between those moneh or the interfaith promoting and LGBT promoting "City Sikhs", without question I would pick them moneh! 

If a Gurdwara was under attack, the first one to call for an uber would be the city Sikhs and the rest of us pendus would be left behind wondering what's going on.

"Hot young blood" is a great addition to any community, but it needs guidance and direction, otherwise they start directing it towards wrong things, which is what is happening. 

What is parchar like in Canada? Are there many young Canadian born parchariks or are they all uncles from India?

It was quite bad apparently. I knew a lady who said Black men broke into their house in Kenya, took the nalas out of her salwars and lenghas and tied her hands up with the nalas and all her families hands and robbed the entire house! The Black slaves they kept were also tied up with the nalas. She said it was the local Blacks who were anti-Indian and the policemen who did the robberies!  She said every night atleast one house was broken into like that in her area. The same happened to the Gujjus.

I tried keeping a straight face when she said all the nalas were taken out of her salwars and lenghas to tie their hands up!   I hope I did! 

I'd imagine these experiences were quite traumatic!

I really feel we need more younger parchariks, in their 20s and 30s, doing parchar in English, not fancy English, but do parchaar in a way which so that young people can engage and connect. 

Pot-bellied gyanis from India aren't exactly drawing crowds into the gurdware now are they! They're Ok for the uncles/aunties, but not for younger people. 

To bring younger people in you need younger people doing the parchar.

There's a balance and give-and-take to be arrived at. You're correct when you say that in the real world where people don't function according to exclusive values of saintly perfection and devilish immorality, these "street" types of people are a necessary "evil" especially if a community has to exist alongside another tribe that is hostile. It's all well and good posturing about the behaviours of these admittedly clownish people, BUT when push comes to shove I'm more likely to stand with these types of individuals in a pinch than with a cowardly faction of my own group who are more likely to appease their enemies than take them on head-on. It's a complex situation.

I agree bro, Its important to create a balance and be realistic about it. These type of moneh get knocked down a lot by "religious" people in our community, and even on this forum as seen above, but its a fact that they will be among the first ones there to fight, and we've seen that in the past.

When the riots happened a few years back, if I remember correctly it was around the time I started getting into Sikhi. While I was at at home watching the riots on tv, my "feral" cousin who probably goes Gurdwara like 1 time every 3 years, was sitting outside the Gurdwara all night with his mate. I sat at home not because I was scared, but I just didn't have that emotional connection with Sikhi even though I was the one that was supposedly "getting into Sikhi "   Now it would be different though, lol

But at the same time we should be honest, the things they do and the lifestyle they live, is wrong, and not in line with Sikhi. 

But its wrong to sideline them.

There is a huge different between coconut moneh and the moneh being discussed above, night and day. Its important to know this. 

The city Sikh  type folks despite wearing paghs and keeping dharis are just useless, even though they seem to think they are a voice for the rest of the community. Like I said, they would be the first ones to call for an Uber and leave the scene.

It is complex. 

Do you think getting into Sikhi softens some people up? especially the type of moneh being discussed?  or not ?

Yeh I did hear it was really bad for them.  I also heard that quite a large proportion of the people that turned on them were the servants that worked for them.  You won’t hear any of the Kenyan crew talk about how they morphed into the ‘brown imperialists’ working for their firangi masters.  They treated their black servants like dirt.  They would go on hunts and have black servants run behind their vehicles for miles whilst they roll played being White Imperialists.  They would also feed them the jooth that was left over from their plates.  Then they came over to the UK with their Peugeot’s and Volvos and would look down on Punjabis and call them pendus and janglis because they worked as labourers and came from farming backgrounds.  In fact they distanced themselves completely from the Punjabi community and set up their own Gurdwaras/Club/Halls/Societies and only followed babeh that toured in Africa.  They are usually portrayed in images that have them sat on leopard skin, maybe because this allows them to claim some ownership on them.  To cut a long story short this community has created more division and pushed cast segregation more than any Punjabi Jatts as DallySingh would have you believe.  They still romanticise that period of time as the good old glory days. 

Yeah, they were shipped off to Africa by the Brits to work in the army and build railway tracks (which they like to deny) and then they started keeping Black slaves, they used call them "boy" which is what slave traders called Black slaves. The oppressed becoming oppressors?  

Yeah their own slaves started rebelling against them, along with the anti-Indian local Blacks, police and government and then they had to migrate for the 2nd time. Africans really should make a movie about this for Black history month, I'd watch it. 

Honestly no one really takes them seriously around here, lol    they're considered coconuts and gora-fyed.  Their youth are weirdos and their gurdware are empty.     

Very strange bunch of people.

Talking of robberies, so many houses get broken into. South Asian houses get targeted. Most of the thieves around here have been Eastern Europeans. 

We've got cricket bats and hockey sticks in every room and behind every door  lmao!   

3 houses directly opposite our houses have been broken into!  It was the South Asian houses that were broken into not Whites!

They’re no different to their forefathers.  They played zero part in the Khalistan movement.  One because Giani Zail Singh was from their caste and the other they have no feelings of belonging to Punjab. They actually hosted Indian Corgress politicians in their Ramgharia Halls in the 1980’s whilst rest of the Sikh diaspora was fighting back.  Their loyalty lies with their caste and Kenya.

City Sikhs are the same, they have created their own segregation based upon caste and economic class.  They will always create divisions, being inclusive doesn’t exist in their vocabulary.

No, he was Ramgarhia according to Wiki:

 

He was born in Sandhwan, Faridkot district on 5 May 1916 to Kishan Singh and Mata Hind Kaur, a Ramgarhia couple of a small village, Sandhvan, near Kot Kapura, in the princely state of Faridkot. Kishan Singh was the village carpenter. 

 

Maybe we should be thinking of how to create more ekta in the panth. Like Jews do not all do the same profession, but they work well as a community utilising different fields. 

The rural and urban Sikhs should try to work together , how that can happen I have no idea, but maybe others here can suggest

People kind of forget that we are quam.

What that means is there is a tribal loyalty even if the quam has manmukhs in it.

    • I miss my best pal. I was desolate when he passed away for quite a while (a few years!). Time (I found) does heal and attenuate the intensity of pain.  The busier you keep yourself, and thus from thinking about it, the better. You can't be stuck in constant grieving mode. The grief is heavily psychological, and you have to use a variety of tricks to focus elsewhere. Training helps. Keeping busy (as mentioned previously) helps. Hobbies help. Supportive friends who don't indulge you in excessive emotionality help. If you're going to mope about it for years, then you're not doing yourself any favours. You have to want to get over it, and not indulge in excessive emotionality after a while.  Even then, something will happen that brings them back to mind. But you have to keep moving. When the sun's out I always remember him, and what we'd get up to. I go past a place we used to go to (like a restaurant) and up he pops in my mind. But he's gone somewhere else now, and I'm here, and I have to deal with my own issues now. You have to be tough minded.  Try CBD btw.  
    • that sau sakhi tale is based on Guru Gobind Sigh's bachan after Singh was carried off battlefield unconcious and  injured by Musley and they cut his kesh and tried to convert him: bytrying to feed him  Halal Meat (please note those who think nothing of eating meat in 'halal friendly' eateries ) , doing sunat (circumcision) , reading shahada and even marrying/offering a muslim woman to him. Because he did not take the last option up Guru ji said he was NOT a muslim and could do pesh and rejoin his sikh bretheren.
    • https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/oct/18/pm-urged-to-enact-davids-law-against-social-media-abuse-after-amesss-death   Potentially an attack on our online freedoms. IF, this includes forums such as these, I will be very reluctant to post again   PM urged to enact ‘David’s law’ against social media abuse after Amess’s death Calls for crackdown on threats to public figures and an end to online anonymity   A notice keeps David Amess’s seat in the Commons free. Photograph: Jessica Taylor/AP   Jessica Elgot Chief political correspondent @jessicaelgot Mon 18 Oct 2021 19.59 BST             Boris Johnson is facing calls to enact “David’s law” to crack down on social media abuse of public figures and end online anonymity in the wake of the killing of Sir David Amess. Dozens of MPs paid tribute in the House of Commons on Monday to the veteran Conservative backbencher who was stabbed to death on Friday, shedding tears, sharing uproarious anecdotes and venting anger over his death.   While police are investigating whether there are any links to Islamist extremism and have not connected the killing to the targeting of MPs online, allies of Amess said he had voiced growing concern about threats and toxicity within public discourse as they demanded a crackdown. Campaigners have warned, however, that ending online anonymity could put whistleblowers and pro-democracy campaigners in authoritarian regimes at risk. Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, told the Commons that “civility in politics matters” but “we must not lose sight of the fact that David’s killing was an [alleged] act of terror on the streets of our country”. Mark Francois, who described Amess as one of his closest friends and his political mentor, vowed he would dedicate his time in parliament to overhauling the rules governing social media. Francois told the Commons he was “minded to drag Mark Zuckerberg [CEO of Facebook] and Jack Dorsey [CEO of Twitter] to the bar of the house … if necessary kicking and screaming so they can look us all in the eye and account for their actions or rather their inactions that make them even richer than they already are”. He said MPs should radically toughen up the pending online harms bill to prevent trolls and other abusers hiding behind pseudonyms. “In the last few years David had become increasingly concerned about what he called the toxic environment in which MPs, particularly female MPs, were having to operate in,” Francois said. “He was appalled by what he called the vile misogynistic abuse which female MPs had to endure online and he told me very recently that he wanted something done about it.”   A man understood to be Ali Harbi Ali is filmed on CCTV walking down a north London street last Friday. Photograph: Sky News Francois, the MP for Rayleigh and Wickford, which neighbours Amess’s Southend West constituency, added: “I suggest that if we want to ensure that our colleague didn’t die in vain, we collectively all of us pick up the baton, regardless of our party and take the forthcoming online harms bill and toughen it up markedly. “Let’s put, if I may be so presumptuous, David’s law on to the statute book, the essence of which would be that while people in public life must remain open to legitimate criticism, they can no longer be vilified or their families subject to the most horrendous abuse, especially from people who hide behind a cloak of anonymity with the connivance of the social media companies for profit.” Bernard Jenkin said MPs should also examine themselves when discussing civility in politics, a nod to some of the disturbing language used during Brexit debates. “Which of us has never felt fallen prey to feelings of contempt or lack of respect or unkindness towards those who oppose us? Which of us can honestly say we cannot do better?” He said kindness should be added to the seven principles of public life. “Henceforth, let kindness be known as the David Amess principle of public life.” Amess, an MP for 38 of his 69 years, was stabbed to death while holding his constituency surgery in an Essex church. Ali Harbi Ali, 25, was arrested at the scene and continues to be detained under terrorism laws. The government intends to pass an online safety bill introducing new obligations on social media companies to regulate illegal and harmful material – though there has been significant controversy over how that can be defined. Compliance will be monitored by Ofcom and the bill is expected to start its passage after pre-legislative scrutiny set to report back in early December. Paying tribute to “one of the nicest, kindest and most gentle individuals ever to grace these benches”, Johnson said Amess’s killing struck at the heart of the ordinary democratic work of MPs. “That Sir David spent almost 40 years in this house but not one day in ministerial office tells everything about where his priorities lay,” he said. “He was not a man in awe of this chamber, nor a man who sought patronage or advancement. He simply wanted to serve the people of Essex, first in Basildon, then in Southend. And it was in the act of serving his constituents that he was so cruelly killed.” Starmer said: “Even as a political opponent he was a man and a politician we could all learn much from. I use that phrase – ‘political opponent’ – very deliberately. Because David held his beliefs passionately but gently. I believe that not only can we learn from that but that we have a duty to do so. Civility in politics matters.” Starmer spoke to the parents of Jo Cox, the Labour MP murdered by a far-right terrorist in 2016, on Friday, he said. “I knew they would be reliving that terrible day. They said to me they were thinking of David’s family and how their lives would be changed forever,” he said. Cox’s widower, Brendan Cox, also said it was a moment to reflect on political discourse and a “day-to-day brutality with which our political debate is conducted, from increasingly regular death threats to online abuse”. The police team convened after his wife’s murder to investigate threats against MPs found 582 reports of malicious communications and handled 46 cases of harassment between 2016 and 2020, he said. Nine cases were classified as terrorism-related.
    • I have lost people in my life close to me. The feeling you have is emptiness.  The person filled a gap in your life which is missing.  In the modern world, we think of death of being separate from life, but it is in fact part of life. As you get older and you attend more funerals this is something you begin to accept. What death has taught me is that it is "finite" in this particular life that I am currently in now and I should be living it and live it better. If I live this life better and more fulfilled then I will either merge with the Akaal or live the next life at a better level.  Whatever Maharaj in his hukam has accepted for me is good. If I can leave this world accomplishing what I set out to prior to entering this life then I can leave this life with some level of Santhoki.  Your wife came into this world and set out to achieve whatever Maharaj in his hukam chose for her. She has achieved what she was set out to do and has moved to the next level. Cherish the moments you had with your wife.
