As someone observed a few weeks ago, they're going to be in trouble when it comes to their daughters and a certain predatory brown minority. They don't see it, though.

I think the Dads might be able to do a reasonable job in protecting their daughters, but it will also require the Mums to be open about the issues that their daughters need to be wary of

Let them learn the hard way.

I'd prefer they don't have to learn the hard way !

'Freshies' attend the Gurdwara in high numbers, right? Having talks a few times a year to raise awareness would do something at least.

Also, how much of the 'them vs us' attitude that 'Freshies' might have is because they are aware that many of the earlier settled generations in the UK, have 'looked down' on them? Maybe we should stop labelling them 'Freshy' and use a more neutral term?

No one looks down on them. The fact that earlier generations give them advice is because we want them to succeed and not make the mistakes we made.


Since the advice is not related to work and finance, they might be more willing to accept it.

The kids (older teens +) have massive egos and a chip on their shoulder for some reason. Have you ever interacted with them? It's funny to even observe and interact with clearly delusional people whose self image is so disconnected from objective reality. They "won't be told" as the English saying goes. The fathers, to be fair, are actually decent guys from my experience, but they're used as walking wallets by the kids and the missus without any hint of shame or apology. These guys are barely into their mid 30s, and they're already broken down, bitter, and curmudgeonly. The mothers are your typical low IQ Punjabans who have their beak buried in WhatsApp 24/7. They aren't protecting nobody. CONSOOOOM!

    • 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.
