Guru Teg Bahadur Gurdwara in Wolverhampton

 

Don't none of our broads 'age well'?

The reason is they stuff their faces with samosas and gulab jamans.

ਫਿਟੁ ਇਵੇਹਾ ਜੀਵਿਆ ਜਿਤੁ ਖਾਇ ਵਧਾਇਆ ਪੇਟੁ ॥

M1, p790

Guru Nanak Dev ji says that the life is accursed in which you eat and grow your belly.

It says it right there in Gurbani, no one wants to listen.

BBC Website:

Sikhs in Wolverhampton gather to mourn Queen in special ceremony

About 200 people gathered for prayers and to share their memories at a Sikh temple following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Prayers lasted for two days at Guru Teg Bahadur Gurdwara in Wolverhampton.

The Sikh holy scripture was recited in a special ceremony over the weekend and a langar meal was shared.

The Gurdwara said it was reflecting on the Queen's achievements, her role as head of the Church of England and her respect for other religions.

The chair of the trust in the Gurdwara, Surjit Singh Uppal, said the Sikh community was grieving.

"I believe the Sikh community in this country are part of the family of the nation," he said.

"We are grieving for her, same as the rest of the country, and this is the message we would like to tell the British people that we are part of you."

Gurdeep Singh Aulakh, from the Gurdwara, said the Queen was "deeply" devoted.

"Being head of [the] Church of England was not an easy task for somebody who needs to balance the other faiths," he said.

"All I can say is obviously from myself, from family, congregation, friends, we really want to send the heartfelt condolence to the Royal Family."

Just noticed a dastar wala singing in the choir at the funeral...either a convert or a passion for Christian hymns!!

    • Proper Bezhti.... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-64496456 Jasvir Singh: 'I'm a devout Sikh - and married to a man' Published 8 hours ago Share   Image caption, Jasvir and Nick on their wedding day By Aleem Maqbool Religion editor, BBC News   Jasvir Singh is one of the most prominent Sikh voices in British public life. He is also gay - a fact that he has kept mostly private until now. It's put him at odds with some members of his own community, but he says he now wants to speak up about his sexuality. Jasvir Singh lays out some photographs on the table in front of him and takes a deep breath. They are pictures of joyful moments from the day last summer when he married his husband, Nick. "I know that speaking about this is going to be highly controversial," he says. "I'm sure there will be lots of people out there who will be upset, annoyed, even angry at me. "But I've got nothing to hide and I know that I have got Waheguru [God] with me, as I have had Waheguru with me all the way." Jasvir is a family law barrister and the main Sikh contributor to Radio 4's Thought For The Day. He has just been awarded a CBE for his work bringing faith communities together and advocating for vulnerable groups. But through it all, he has lived with a swirl of speculation about his private life - often spilling over into attempts at intimidation - that he now wants to address head-on. "There is a very small element of the British Sikh community that makes itself loudly heard. From them I have received death threats for being gay, I have been accused on a TV station of being an infidel and I have even had individuals call me up and threaten to expose me." Though Jasvir says he has not tried to hide his sexual orientation, it is not something he has talked about publicly. Recently, however, Jasvir says he has been confronted by an unsurmountable obstacle that meant he could not live out his faith in the way in which he wanted and in the way others can. "My husband is white, British, and was not born into a Sikh family. But he understands my Sikhi (Sikhism) and he has respected and embraced that part of my life. We have said we want to have a family and want to bring our children up Sikh. "We spoke about the kind of wedding we wanted in great detail, but sadly there was no way of getting married in a gurdwara, even though in my interpretation of the Anand Karaj (the Sikh marriage ceremony), there is no reason for this." .... Jasvir and Nick have just returned from their honeymoon, during which they visited gurdwaras in Punjab and in other parts of India.
