Because Naamdharis are absolute masters at kirtan. Simple. On the topic of Akal Takht, it doesn't really hold the same authority as it did in the past. Just look at the people running it and you'll get what I mean. Most the panth, outside of stuff like Tankhaya, don't care about anything they have to say.
It's sad but we really shouldn't be going to such countries, especially to southern American states like North Carolina.
Can we really expect people to know the ins and outs about every religion and culture?
I don't think this is a matter of religion.
The Kirpan is a weapon. I don't think there's anything wrong with having a weapon on a college campus.
The fault here lies with whoever called the police and also the police for trying to arrest someone who is otherwise peaceful but just happens to be armed.
It's also the fault of North Carolina for not legalizing open carry if it's not already legal.
You don't even need to have any license whatsoever to carry a gun in half the states. So what's the problem?
