So I've been lurking on the forum as a guest for a few weeks and I am absolutely appalled by the response of the far left to this issue.  I was actually meaning on starting a similar thread on this to

Because that's what other US Sikhs have reported. It's not hard to look through first-hand accounts. One of the Sikh elderly who got attacked described his attacker as 'kaala' and OFC some retarded li

I've had issues and seen issues from all types of blacks tbh (including Africans, Somalis) but yeah especially West Indians.  Yeah, the mixed races ones seem to be on another level.  Hardly anyone kno

By the way, I'm sorry I didn't recognize all of the UK Sikhs who live in "heavily mixed non-Sikh areas."

It must be incredibly isolating not living in Southall, but instead living a whopping 5 miles away from it!

That says a lot about you. More than you realise.

The obvious reason why American Sikhs are unable to respond as a community to various things is staring you right in the face: no population density, nothing resembling a "community," and in turn no power or influence.

But rather than accept the obvious answer, you want to take this opportunity to engage in some pointless chest-beating. Is there something in the water there that makes you people (who come from the same culture and same pinds) different?

 

Let me ask you something about UK Sikhs. Why can't you do anything about the sorry state of Sikhs in France? No, don't tell me that France is a different country. It is a hell of a lot easier to get from London to Paris than it is from my family's home to the various places mentioned in this thread. And while you are at it, why don't you put on your mask and cape and go sort out the Italians mistreating Sikh farm workers in Italy? I would have to travel twice as far to get to Milwaukee as you would to get to Rome. Sikhs in France and Italy and Germany are MUCH more a part of your community than Sikhs in New York or Milwaukee are a part of mine.

That's how ludicrous you guys sound when you talk about the US.

It's all a question of scale I guess. Most Europeans don't think like Americans in the way you're conveying hopping from one separate nation to the next like it's a road trip where people drive through states. Stuff like language, culture / local customs, etc., are all rather concrete and definite over here. I don't think you have to learn a completely new language when you get to Milwaukee in order to converse with the locals. Borders are a thing although I guess you Commie ret4rds are determined to eliminate them, lol.

    • Living in the West most of us are aware of humorous sexual or biological colloquial terms. There's a difference between a surname -- that largely cannot be changed -- and intentionally burdening a child with a dodgy forename from a long list of non-dodgy possibilities. I wouldn't use my child to make a haughty cultural argument in order to highlight gorah ignorance. The kid has to go out into the world and live with his/her name every day of their life. Doing it out of ignorance is one thing; purposefully bestowing a horrible name where someone will be victim to guffaws (despite knowing the implications of the name) their entire life is the height of cruelty.
    • Singh of the Heartfelt yep scans great...how about lovepreet  (double ironic) Manpreet is bad as we are meant to love Akal Purukh not our Man , I could understand Livleen  not Lovleen     people don't know Punjabi/gurmukhi or sanskrit  meanings and just make a mess creating milgoba hindu sounding names
    • remember akal security was doing the same and worse in immigration centres near mexican border to Singh , this included shaving and cutting the Singh's kesh. And 3HO should be respected as a sikh organisation ...haha I don't think so
    • OK, I figured out what Har5hit means. The base shows up in Gurbani as ਹਰਖ and ਹਰਸ (harkh and haras). It means happiness, delight.   ਦਰਸਨ ਪਰਸਨ ਸਰਸਨ ਹਰਸਨ ਰੰਗਿ ਰੰਗੀ ਕਰਤਾਰੀ ਰੇ ॥੧॥ On beholding and touching it, I am sweetened and delighted. It is imbued with creator's love. p404 ਹਰਖੁ ਸੋਗੁ ਸਭੁ ਮੋਹੁ ਗਵਾਇਆ ॥ harakh sog sabh moh gavaia .p122  Happiness sadness and attachment were all lost.   ਹਰਸ਼ਿਤ would be the adjectival form and simply means happy or delighted. Like ਅਨੰਦ -> ਅਨੰਦਿਤ.   If you want to name your child "Happy" you can use an alternative form such as Harkhit, which would mean the same thing because sh can become kh in Punjabi. (Often not so for Hindi/Sanskrit). There doesn't seem to be a reason for a Punjabi to use a Hindi form, unless they are self-haters.
    • Ok, yeah, because a lot of them are same-ish, people lose appreciation for that, I can see that. Gur-Preet is fine because we're supposed have love of Guru ji. A lot of other prefix/suffix names are undecipherable because parents just threw together syllables without a thought to the meaning. There are a lot of non-suffix names available if parents would bother to read Gurbani and other Sikh literature. Or even ordinary Punjabi words, like ਰੰਗੀਨ (Rungeen, colorful).
