    VJKK VJKFateh ji its not hard at all. Many before you have done it plus your going to bham uni, youll meet plenty of singhs. Worry not! Youll find sikhs arent the only ones who dont drink or r veggies lol. Its a personal choice many make. Has very little impact on anything. Stick with the right crowds and youl enjoy uni whilst keeping rehat. I made plenty of friends, there wasnt a single singh on my course and iv never been clubbing or pubs or none of that. be confident in yourself. Enjoy life as HSingh said. You're a Singh. You're an ambassador of our nation. Dont be seen in places we dont belong to. Dont be doing things we shouldnt. Uni is a time where you either stay on your tracks or go way off. Concentrate on your studies. Make friends. Join a few societies. Boom! Fun all round

    ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕਾਖ਼ਾਲਸਾ || ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਜੀਕੀਫ਼ਤਹ ॥ I don't understand how some people come to this site when they don't even believe in the path that Guru Sahib has given us. Singh that is going to university please understand that you are accountable for every action you take. When you are representing Sikh Saroop you should not be going to clubs and pubs. You are not the first Sikh to engage in higher education, be proud of who you are.

    One needs to be seriously honest with themselves, if one truly feels in experience worldly things are illusion and feel nirlaip like lotus in muddy water then in my opinion go for it -don't hold back- mingle with outside crowd which does not have same interest as you but if you are type of person who are quite driven by outside five senses(engage in it, fail to witness them ignore them) than i suggest you avoid it keep engaging in more sangat, gurbani vichar with effort until vichar becomes effortless and you are automatically drawn towards vichar, bairaag regardless of outside situation then at that point, outside places or worldy influences will lose its power grip on you.

    I found that Sikhs are by and large quite respected in Canada. Surrey is a large in itself of almost half million people so you cannot really claim that the whole of Surrey as a ghetto. The wider white Canadian community is quite aware of Sikhs and our traditions in a way that the Brits are not. Being greeted with Sat Sri Akal by a white cashier or being told by Security that your "Kara" may need to be taken off when going through metal detectors. A white salesman would approach a Sikh customer before even going to a white customer because he knows who has the money. That would not happen in the UK. All the recent hoo-ha in Canada at the moment is being created by muslims, whether it is the Ottawa shootings or the Calgary-ISIS connections or whether it is the bomb suspects in Toronto or grooming incidents in Quebec.

    I had been 8 years in Uni and had no problem keeping rehit. Don't listen to that hsingh68 troll. He's been lying since he joined this forum. If he does not consider himself a sikh, he must not give any advice. Dont know why moderators do not ban these type of people who create confusions and doubts in young sikh minds. He was never a sikh and never will be . He just pretends to be one of you to dilute your sikhi ideology. A follower of M.K. Gandhi - he is

    I don't hate multiculturalism, I grew up in multicultural Britain like you. I don't like moguliaztion of the UK. Parts of the UK are fully mogulized some semi.on average London Manchester Birmingham are semi.if we can reverse back to the multicultural demographics of 1988 I will be happy and feel it's acceptable. when Sikhs and other immigrants came here in 60s and 70s did they want to come to a 3rd world multicultural hell whole? No, they could got that in india. multiculturalism is the idea of the political elite and middle class English people. they have brain washed us with multiculturalism and engineered the UK inthe direction of the 3rd world while they live in millionare areas free from 3rd worlders

    Go to your local gurdwara find out when is next amrit sanchar is and go around that time to speak to them take your parents with you. If it's urgent find out if you can speak to local gyani ji at the gurdwara. You should also take hakumnama from Sri guru granth sahib ji and deeply reflect , contemplate on it with full openess,receptivity,with your intuition(surti) or gut feeling not with condioned mind. Hope everything works out for you ..Good luck.

    I'm trying to say that muslims believe that burning of the body is bad Guru Ji says that the kumar comes and digs the soil of cemeteries and makes pots which he puts in the kiln and heats them Kabeer says if circumcision equals islam then what would you say about woman that they are kafir So GURBANI highlights the weaknesses of other religion

    PATNA Sahib, Bihar, India (February 20, 2015)—The apex Sikh body, SGPC, has taken over the control of Takht Sri Patna Sahib management. The 15 member committee elected 5 members and Avtar Makkar was named as head of the management committee unanimously. The SGPC enjoys control over majority of Gurdwaras in Punjab, Chandigarh and Himachal Pardesh. Now with the control of Takht Sri Patna Sahib, it can make decisions regarding 4 of the 5 takhts. The fifth takht, Sri Hazoor Sahib, is run independently of SGPC control. SGPC President was congratulated by DSGMC President Manjit Singh GK. Some scholars have hinted that Makkar had been made head at Takht Sri Patna Sahib to empty the president’s position at SGPC headquarters in Sri Amritsar. Salwinder Singh (Tata Nagar) became senior vice president, Bibi Kamaljeet Kaur got elected as junior vice president, Sarjinder Singh (Patna Sahib) was made general secretary and Mahinder Singh Chhabra as secretary.

    Manak did convert to Sikhi. He married his daughters in Sikh families. He was not a Khalsa and did drink but he did have love for Sikhi. The burial was not due to his personal wish but more because of difficult (economical) situations around the time of his death.

    Indeed, ive already disowned any respect for gurdas maan, after his kp gill award photo, n not to mention his constant kanjjar activities with fake ciggie smokin dera babas. Kuldeep manak did have a lot of pyar for sikh dharam. Bhangra producers, kaos productions(derby), confirmed that wen manak used to sleep around their house, manak wud do japji sahib paat,everyday without fail at amritvela. This pic is very disappointing.

    I have personally seen cases like above patit hsingh68 brother. I have seen folks from bibeki lifestyle to real low one. That is fine with me as guru ji do not bless sikhi to everyone. The only thing i hate about them is their stupid urge to spread their opinions to justify their lifestyle change.

    'Jatt' and 'Ramgharia' are not castes. The term Jatt simply describes the amalgamation of rural peoples who existed outside the caste system of the Hindus and were animated by some sort of tribal nationalism rather than caste loyalties. It is an ethnic group. Likewise, a Ramgharia is a descendant of a member of the Ramgharia misl. Most Ramgharias happen to be Tarkhans, but they don't have to be. Perhaps a more learned member of the Sangat could clarify why exactly these two groups appear to have become known as castes when in fact they aren't? My digression aside, a Jatt Sikh should still be allowed to marry a Ramgharia Sikh.

    U say ur parents say ur disgracin them coz ur marryin a "lower" caste, u shud tell them that according to the stupid hindustan caste system, jatts and ramgharias r both lower caste. I assume that tellin them the caste system is anti-sikh, is a waste of time,so anotha thing to throw at them is, they shud b happy ur bringing home a sikh, n not disgracin them genuinely with a muslim or hindu adhmi. Tell them to think that atleast their grandkids will b sikhs. Things like this really really pee me off man. These tribal obsessed mugs shud spare a thought for those parents whom have brought home a gangu/sullaahh, n thus lost anotha generation of kids.

Also manak sang songs n released tracks that were anti-india/indira, as hammertime u confirmed in the past on this forum. This is odd, y wud manak perform infront of that kuthha kp gill?

    "Sikh murders, shootings, home invasions, drugs, gangs have, over the last decade as a whole, been on Columbian levels in terms of violence. In contrast, UK Muslims of the same thing have been on the level of a small peaceful country town in Olkaholma. Let me tell you something about Surrey for example. In Surrey, there have even been cases of some of our old bajurgs been violently mugged on the streets at nights by our own apnian kurian high on meths and/or heroin. " Bajurgs in the UK have been violently mugged as well by junkies as well, what's the difference? The heroin drug trade is dominated by Pakistanis and there is an epidemic of girls being drugged and groomed up and down the country by this same community. Calling muslim criminality in terrorism, drugs, grooming and prostitution as a peaceful town in Oklahoma even though it is widespread throughout the whole UK with compared to Sikh crime in one city in the Greater Vancouver area which sits in the small corner of B.C. as Columbia is a big exaggeration.

    He certainly wasn't a Khalsa then. If he's dholgiya. It's like a stone immersed in water and once taken out and the water hasn't penetrated it. You can read/surround yourself with Gurbani yet if it's not penetrated your heart is is pointless. Hsingh68 seems like the perfect example. Ram ram karta sab jag phire, ram na piya jave.

Bhenji, i agree with neo the best thing to do is approach the wisest gursikhs you know and ask them to guide u based on their experience of gurbani.

In Surrey, there have even been cases of some of our old bajurgs been violently mugged on the streets at nights by our own apnian kurian high on meths and/or heroin. You seem to be confusing your Canadas with your Englands. The Sikhs in England have been here since the 1920's. In Canada, they've been there since the end of the 1800's. Of course its crazy, but we live in a crazy world. The Canadian survey found that white Canadians hate Sikhs and Muslims almost on an equal level (and by the way the report found that Canadians like Hindus) because of the same reasons crazy reasons that you dislike muslims in the UK. Drugs, crime, insurance fraud, murder, gangs etc. Now thats scary and should really give us pause for thought. Less than 1 in 3 Canadains said they could say anything positive about Sikhs. In the UK, in contrast, the BBC survey found that the Sikhs are the most liked of all and this is borne out in the way that even extreme right-wing racist groups such as EDL make public announcements about how much love they have for Sikhs. So yes, we live in a crazy world. http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/what-canadians-think-of-sikhs-jews-christians-muslims/ I hold Canadian residency. My chache, thaye, pooah, mamme, mother in law, brother in law and 80% of my restidars as a whole live in Canada. I know both. I have no loyalty to no nation other than my beloved Punjab. I simply tell it like it is and as this thread was full of inaccuracies and ill-informed posts I used my knowledge to correct them. If you're saying I was supposed to let the ill-informed posts stand unchallenged and to challenge them means I must 'hate' Canada than I'm sorry to dissapoint you.

    Jagsaw I would dispute that survey, would be interesting to see the sample size and what their particular agenda is, that is not my experience.Nor is that necessarily the experience of a lot of other Sikhs who reside in Canada. I am aware of the reputation of Surrey amongst Canadians but it Surrey is a big place and it is quite sprawly. Some of these "reputations" are built on perception. It's like saying all folk in Norfolk have webbed feet and hands. There are some thing Canadian Sikhs do that I personally find irritating but they also do some things much better than UK Sikhs. You do have a gripe against Canadian Sikhs for some reason though. But I feel this thread is gone off a big tangent. The cricket match is over, India won Pakistan lost. India has since beaten South Africa (who I would like to see win the World Cup), Pakistan has been defeated by the West Indies.

    @JagsawSingh. No way is Sikh crime on Canda on the same level as muslim crime in UK, as for us to be the most hated community in Canda, that's crazy. sikhs have progressed and integrated in canada compared to any other country . We have many Sikhs involved in politics over there, sikhs have been there since the 1920 , they way we carry ourselves would mean that Canda wouldn't hate us

    This Khem Bedi that was Amitabh's ancestor was notoriously very anti-Sikh. Khem Bedi hated Giani Ditt Singh + the (Lahore) Singh Sabha with a passion as they were revitalising the Sikh Panth. Khem Bedi had his own competing Sanatan Sabha which claimed Sikhs were Hindu's. Khem Bedi was paid large sums by the British to undermine the Gurdwara Sudhar Lehar and the true Singh Sabha movement. The Arya Samaj and British paid him handsomely to strenghten anti-Gurmat practices in the Gurdwaras led by the Hindu Mahants. Wherever he went he used to openly preach that Sikhs were Hindus. He used verses from Bachittar Natak to force ordinary Sikhs (that only believed in accepting Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj) to think that the Gurus were descendents of Hindu King Ram Chandra's children as Bedi's + Sodhi's. He claimed that the Aad Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is the fifth veda of the Hindus + that Sikhs should revere the Vedas of the Hindu's as, according to him, our Guru Sahiban did so in their previous lives, as stated in the Bachittar Natak. He was widely disliked by the Sikh Panth, but on the back of the finances from the British and his wealthy Arya Samaj friends, he set up a Sodhak Committee in 1897 of his hand picked people, to consolidate 32 wildly different versions of the Bachittar Natak which had been introduced into Punjab from Bengal via Hindu Mahants to whom the British supplied drugs like opium and prostitutes between 1875 and 1900. It was Khem Bedi who personally decided that Benti Chaupai was best positioned next to Triya Charitar on the advice of Arya Samaj friends. Khem Bedi's two sons Kartar and Gurbaksh also merit mention as they were staunch opponents of Bhai Kartar Singh Jhabbar, Jathedar Tehal Singh and Bhai Lachman Singh who sought to liberate Sri Nankana Sahib from Hindu Mahants who were introducing prostitutes and other anti-Gurmat practices into our Gurdwara's just like how the Muslim Massa Ranghar had done in earlier times. Kartar Bedi was a staunch supporter of the Hindu Mahant Narain Das who murdered 130 Sikhs at Sri Nankana Sahib in 1921. Gurbaksh Bedi was famously anti-Sikh + used to go on Hindu stages to declare that Sikhs are Hindus. Compared to these individuals Amitabh seems more "Sikh" for at least trying to clear his name at Sri Akal Takht Sahib.

    Have you sat down and thought this one through ? Clearly then, you haven't thought it through because that 'multiculturalism' you complain about is what lets you wear your dastar and kirpan as a religious right. The alternative is a country such as France where they officially have a national policy against multiculturalism, i.e everyone, regardless of race, must act like the French.

    Now cricket is played in the villages. But until 90s, this game was mainly played by the city folks since Cricket is not a very athletic sport so one does not need to be that physical strong to play this sport. Back then it was field hockey which dominated the villages because boys from the villages had good diet and were physically stronger and more athletic. In Doaba it was football. But now due to spread of drug usage, even the boys in the villages are growing weak like the city boys and that's why now cricket is so popular in villages along with city foods like noodles, burgers and other junk food
