Satkaar for guru granth sahib


Recommended Posts

Guest singh

I was at the gurdwara on Sunday and I was deeply hurt how the gurdwara committee showed satkaar for guru Granth shaib ji, this event has deeply hurt me,

2 things happed

so the fist one was, our local mp was gone come, so the gurdwaras committee decided to stop the Katha half way through so the mp could speak and when she finished Katha was resumed, this shows that katha has no importance to them. and the guru words are less important and some MP is bigger than guru shaib.  

and when the Katha resumed and the mp was leaving all the committee members got up and left the divan with the mp, to me it just looked like they don't repeat guru Granth shaib as out guru

and while the whole committee was escorting the mp outside, there was no committee member left in the divan to tell the Sangat the next programme and the Parcharak how long he's time on stage was. they had just anbandoded guru sahibs Darbar 

I feel this is very sad, that we have people running gurdwaras who dont even have satkaar for Maharaj and it has opened my eyes that we need change

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh

Very true veerji.Unfortunately this is the case in many countries.People treat MPs and people with authority with so much respect but they don't do same for the True King of Kings and the One with the highest Authority, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj.So sad,in my country some of the committee members are even Alcoholics!So sad to see this beadbi happening.

Bhul Chuk Maf 🙏

I stopped going to the gurdwara on Sunday for this reason.  Got tired of all the political stuff. If I go now it will in the middle of the week.

it happens everywhere bro and its really sad. 

my opinion! 

we have identified the cause and lets just work for it to be resolved. 

solutions could be:

1. make a satikaar committee and stand up for it.

2.  become a member of gurughar's committee because not many young people in the committee (most gurughar). mostly elderly uncle are in control and we have to be part of committee  to make a change. 

note: I am not saying uncles are not doing a good job at gurughar, we just have to work with them and make them understand of the points which they aren't aware of.

Of course we are all aware of the Incident when indira gandhi visited the Gurdwara, and Sant Giani Kartaar Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindran Wale were doing sewa of Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

    • I never said anything about life for Sikhs in the UK in the 70s, I was talking about the present day. I understand and respect the struggles that you all went through to get to the position where you are today. But I hope you all don't lose sight of the fact that the freedom and status that Sikhs enjoy in the UK today is very far from the norm. Sikhs in the US today are fighting battles that were settled in the UK decades ago (and without the benefit of a population density that gives Sikhs in the UK at least some visibility and political sway). But forget about the US. You don't have to go that far, you can just cross the English channel and see how precarious the position of Sikhs is in continental Europe. Thanks for giving details about the grooming issue. Do you think this had to do with Labour being more concerned about the Muslim vote (as Muslims former a larger voting block than Sikhs) or political correctness? Or both? I concede that leftists sometimes go to far with political correctness and "canceling" in order to try to show how "fair" and "unbigoted" they are. I am not going to question your take on the whole grooming issue. You know more about that than I do. But that seems to be a very specific situation in the UK. I stand by my general point that left-leaning people are by far the most likely to support the rights of vulnerable minorities (which is the category that Sikhs fall under almost everywhere).   I don't buy your point about a backlash to "wokeness" at all. I don't think that that is what is causing the growing popularity of far-right movements. The way information is shared and distorted today is radically different from what was the norm not very long ago, and that has been the game-changer that has led to today's division and polarization. You seem to think that if the "woke" people would just be quiet, the racists would not have a "rallying cry". That is simply not true. First of all, those people will ALWAYS find something to complain about. (That has certainly been true throughout American history. If it has been less true in UK history, that is probably because the white British majority did not feel threatened by a sizable minority until relatively recently. See my second point.) Second of all, the complaints of the more hardcore right-wing racists increasingly resonate with the more "passive" racists as the majority community diminishes in size and feels more threatened. And third of all, as I alluded to before, today's media/information landscape will allow for any complaints to blow up and go viral.   Any time anyone from the non-majority community asks for anything, no matter how reasonable, there is going to be a backlash from the majority community. And in many instances, the non-majority community doesn't even have ask for anything or complain about anything to provoke a backlash. Their mere existence is enough. This is what history has shown us.

    • And people want to talk about poverty, look at how India was stripped of wealth. Here 2800 silver bars were taken for ww2 but didn't make it back here. Now that they've found it, look at what they are doing with it. The pillaging is still going on.      Treasure from the deep: Thousands of silver bars that were meant to fund Britain's WWII effort but were sunk by German U-boat FINALLY reach their destination - and will be sold as coins Merchant ship carrying silver from India for the war effort was sunk in 1941 Its cargo of 2,800 bars of silver has sat on the bed of the Atlantic ever since Record-breaking bid to salvage the silver from three miles down a success The Royal Mint is now making the metal into coins to remember the tragedy https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2596785/Thousands-silver-bars-sunken-WWII-ship-sold-coins.html
