With the jat Sikhs making the majority in Punjab and having the most power . IE in terms of politics and also religiously. IE all major people controling and running the Gurdwaras being from this demographic.

Should other castes be give some kind of quota for top jobs so we can have more equality and diversity in the Punjabi society and social strata. Or are they to power hungry and unable to share? 

I think that is the only way of achieving a strong United Punjab instead of one where there is to much in fighting and resentments.

Akaal Takht Jathedar is from a ‘low caste’

Same with recent ex-Chief Minister Channi.

There have been quotas in place for many years to ensure ‘lower castes’ get many reserved political seats and (from my understanding) the same with senior Religious positions. Same for government jobs and university places in general.

You have made a topic and points here which are quite inaccurate and misleading

To me that's like saying because Priti Patel and Rishi Sunak are where they are, there is no racism in the UK.  You talk shyte.

I know this is a bait topic, but we'll ignore that, and take it on face value.

It's really difficult to sympathise with Jatts. The obvious affects of the destructive policies aimed at destroying Punjab and the millions of non-elite Jatts who just get on with life to the best of their ability, are plain to see. But you talk to them for even five minutes, and the way they view the world is just so mashed up. It's not normal. They're their own biggest enemies. They don't help themselves. Instead, they dig themselves into greater holes despite being aware of the consequences of doing so. The older I get, my tolerance levels for their nonsense is in the gutter. I'm not being salty or unnecessarily harsh. I do wish they'd "see the light" but the lens through which they understand reality is all over the place. I don't know how else to explain it.

When I see how those kids are being treated and know that there will be many more cases like this, including the abuse of vulnerable women, it makes me feel ill. 

Unless you're some silver spoon, mollycoddled twat (and there are a fair few on the forum), you should clock that it's only Waheguru's grace that you aren't in a similar position to one of those poor kids.

And what we are seeing in those videos is a clear head-butting of Sikh culture with Panjabi culture.  If some people have refused to do the usual and turn a blind eye it's because they have probably been blessed with Sikhi and have some form of moral compass and humanity/empathy over the standard beady eyed sociopathy many apnay (especially juts) seem to specialise in.

The only Sanjha Punjab we (Sikhs) should be fighting for is to gather all believers (of whatever caste) in Das Paathshaiyan under one umbrella, and proceed from there. Frig the Musleh and the rest hostile to our existence. There's no sanjha-punna with those who consider us kafir or their expendable slave warrior class.

You feelin okay there

I'm fine. My point was just that people often use (not saying Premi was) examples of tokenism to prove things are improving, like racism is sorted in the US because we've got a black president now.   Judging from outside (and I could be wrong) but it actually looks like racism has worsened there and not improved since then. 

I think it's pretty easy to wheel out some prominent member of a discriminated against community to try and deflect from ground level realities for the majority. 

All in all though, I'm glad at least some brothers are overtly facing up to what is essentially modern day slavery and exploitation in Panjab. Waheguru bless those people. 

What makes me heave is how we have so many people in the diaspora (and they all seem to be from a certain background) constantly harking about how much progress has been made, and how things aren't like they used to be. That sort of dismissive attitude just enables further covert abuse in my opinion. 

How long has this issue been buried by apnay? It's high time to take it on - head on.  And we have to face ugly realities to do this, regardless if they make you emotionally feel 'bad'.
