I have seen in Slough and Southall  that most of the main events and activism happen in the Singh Sabha gurdwaras and not that much in the Ramgharia gurdwaras.

Credit where it's due. The Jassa Singh Ramgarhia Akhara seem to have their heads screwed on right unlike most Ramgarhia associations which tend to be more like social clubs and echo chambers for Ramgarhias to badmouth Jats.

Credit also to the 7 Ramgarhia Gurdwaras that signed the letter to the PM from 230 Sikh organisations and Gurdwaras demanding Priti  Patel be sacked for demonising Sikhs in the speech she made in the USA.

  2. Ramgarhia Board Northampton (Gurdwara Sahib)
  3. Ramgarhia Sabha, Nottingham
  4. Ramgarhia Sabha, Reading
  5. Ramgarhia Sabha, Wolverhampton
  6. Ramgarhia Sikh Gurdwara, Slough
  7. Ramgarhia Sikh Society, Bedford

That's right.

Even if we think spiritually, gurbani tells us to spread the True Naam in the world.

Guru Amar Das ji set up manji system where accomplished gursikhs were chosen to do parchar of sikhi on non Sikhs.

For some reason, many Sikhs insist "Sikhism isn't a missionary religion".

Leave aside the word "missionary", I think what they mean is you're never supposed to tell anybody about the greatness of Guru Nanak Dev ji.

That's not true. I mean Gurbani says at multiple places Sikhs are supposed to encourage others to recite the Name:

ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸੁਖ ਪਾਵਹੁ ॥

ਆਪਿ ਜਪਹੁ ਅਵਰਹ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਾਵਹੁ ॥

Remember, remember, remember the Name and obtain peace.

Thyself repeat the Name and make others to repeat it.

 

That's from Sukhmani Sahib, so there's no excuse for not knowing that verse.

True. But to hold any military position or many jobs entails lapses of maryada. 

But that's not what he was saying. He was saying that certain among us not only compromised with maryada while working for the new masters, but also

-during off hours, 

-after retiring from service, and

-worst of all, passed on those compromises to following generations as a kind of baseline

 

The only true baseline for maryada is the maryada of Guru Gobind Singh ji.

Well thanks to 5aaban (I think?) who posted those pie charts showing just how many hindu and sakhi sarwaar juts converted to Sikh only in the last 100 years, especially in Doaba and Majha, it sort of explains a lot regarding how poor lumpen segments attachment and understanding of their dharam is over bhangra-paaing proclivities and whatnot. 

1. Beggars can't be choosers.

I'll take what we can get.

I'm actually fine with numbers. 

Yeah, so many of them have no clue what Gurbani says, but as long as they, in their minds, "ਮੰਨ" Guru Granth Sahib ji, that's good enough for me.

Because who am I to say I'm any better than them?

ਹਉ ਅਪਰਾਧੀ ਗੁਨਹਗਾਰ ਹਉ ਬੇਮੁਖ ਮੰਦਾ॥
ਚੋਰੁ ਯਾਰੁ ਜੂਆਰਿ ਹਉ ਪਰ ਘਰਿ ਜੋਹੰਦਾ॥

I am a criminal, a sinner, evil and apostate.
I am a thief, adulterer; gambler who always keeps his eye upon other's household.
Vaar Bhai Gurdas ji 36, Pauri 21
 

2. I'm pleased to be part of a Panth which encouraged people to join it for the love of Guru Nanak ji, instead of being forced to (by various means) like the Abrahamics.

 

3. If you're in the company of non-practicing Sikhs, they'll generally let you do your thing (Nitnem, Reharas, whatever). It's not like you're asking "Hey, mind if I do Namaz?" Or "I'm fasting for Ramadan".

You're part of the same religion, though they're not strict about it.

4. What the Mullahs do is, first they get you into their religion. Then they indoctrinate the kids into Jihad. Why can't we do the same (indoctrinate into Bhagti, not Jihad)?

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh. 

Good points bro. You can catch me expanding my awareness or on clubhouse these days. 

Or email or Jami.

That doesn't happen though does it. These people can be in the thing for generations and still have a stronger barn-dancing identity than a dharmic one.

    • https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening.  The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh."  No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday.  The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.

    • You really are full of nonsense. The reason the Gujaratis came to Britain after being expelled from Africa was because they had British citizenship, no other reason. Many of them had to live in detention camps when they arrived! They did not uplift the image of Indians by selling saris and owning corner shops, something that Punjabis were doing where they were a majority anyway. 
    • 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.
