    @GuestSingh Care to explain why you posted my private info on this site and have been trolling my posts this whole time? Why not meet in discourse as invited? I do not believe your behavior is befitting a Sikh, let alone a Khalsa.

    As a politician he doesn't owe to any particular group of people, he owes to his constituents and his constituents are vary diverse group of people. Just because many sikhs may have voted for him or may be part of his party donor list does not mean they will now dictate his personal life. With that being said, he did made his engagement as photo up by inviting media so i guess its fair game if people don't like what they are seeing. They are entitled to voice their opinions. I've seen reactions from wider Canadian audience too both positive and being thrown off comments who invites media in personal family event -very tacky at the very least. As a amritdhari singh if he falls in love with non amritdhari and marries non amritdhari, thats between her, Guru and sikh gyani who administer their anand karaj where she be encouraged to adapt Gursikhi life style and thats up to them since it be done in front of hazoori of Guru maharaj its between him/her and Guru, so again its none of our business as him being regular baptised sikh* (he is not a jathedar of misal, sikh leader) he is not really answerable to fellow sikhs but rather panj pyare and or sikh gyani who administers their anand karaj. So if you have sikhi related issue with him, take it up to panj pyares. He has done tremendous work for wider Canadian community including sikh community, none can take that away from him. *Wonders* if he was a regular baptised sikh not famous canadian politican would he be subjected to this type of scrutiny ? I didn't think so. Now as far being him being gursikh role model goes, is he claiming to be role model. If people wrap their head around personality worship and bunch of human pointers and consider him to be role model thats their prerogative not his. Heck, its not like its emanating from him that he is role model, its not like he is declaring every where he goes that he is role model. I've find people to have unrealistic expectations from others and put them on pedestal and get all disappointed if they don't meet our standards. Would you be guys be satisfied if her fiance waters down amrit like many akaalis and sgpc leaders have done- them and their spouses taking amrit just for sake of getting seat and position in sikh panth. I wish them best of luck.

    Too much ‘Krodh’ will your destroy your soul. You should do breathing exercises and do lots of naam simran. This much nindia, hatred and jealousy is not the way of a Khalsa.

    Guys secretly admire girls with open hair. My husband always used to encourage me to leave mine open. Uncut hair is hard to leave open without it blowing everywhere and getting untidy. I finally told him - they cut their hair to get that look. So yes- being amritdhari does mean that you have rid your feelings for a spouse whose looks match the western ideal stamped upon us by advert after advert about what looks best. Why don't people see it as a positive - as in a cut hair girl actually married a sikh boy When they reject pag vale we complain - do wheres the praise now? An apna married an apna and we are still sad. What do we want and who made us judges by the way?

    Coincidentally google associates these images with this one... Don't you have a clothing drive to organize or sleeping mats to make? Maybe more fake news to write for money? Or you're content saving the world with your prius? Furthermore using a three letter acronym for swearing is swearing.

    There is no solution! Welcome to Kalyug. People have changed along with the challenges of the times. Both men and women are getting married at a later age (30+) so they no longer have the tolerance to accommodate their partner or their partners families. The too set in their ways of what the perceive as being comfortable. In 80’s it wasn’t uncommon to see a bride and groom get married between the age 18-21. You would regularly see girls who were put through education by the in-laws and slowly moving towards a career path within a few years into the marriage. The boy would often be in the same situation and probably clueless about their future. The married couple were still in their youth and were slowly growing into adulthood with the presence and advise of elders within the family unit. Somehow this setup worked quite well and still kept the marriages strong and successful. Nowadays everybody wants the complete article before marriage, usually comprising of education of some importance, well settled in a career, a big salary, a business, big detached house, a nice car, multiple properties to boast about, money in the bank for holidays and the cherry on top is no in-laws within 5 miles. The success of the marriages of the previous generations were down to being young and sharing hardship along the way. Sometimes this is the glue that keeps families together. Joint decisions come into play and you are forced sacrifice yourselves for the sake of others. This is not seen now as people are so selfish and impatient for material wealth and so called independence that they are ruthless when it comes down tolerating anyone other than themselves. But the odd thing is they are still unhappy!

    OK, welcome, and please create an account (it's free!), so we can have a conversation, and you can get notifications when someone responds. Just a small, wee difference: The Sikhs in Canada are (overwhelmingly) there legally, as there's no land border between India and Canada. By contrast, there are tens of millions of Mexicans/Latinos who came over illegally in the US. And that counts for nothing? 25% of the Mexicans brought over as children into the US are functionally illiterate in English, and about half speak only a little. I doubt you could find a single Sikh who immigrated as a child to Canada and is illiterate in English. And what is wrong with that? You do know that from agriculture comes the food you eat, right? Or do you just drink a pack of Soylent (packaged meal replacement product)? As an "educated human", you do know that agriculture is the basis of civilization, don't you? This is just a wild guess, but I think that if you saw this farmer: instead of this one: you would think, "Oh, wow, bright young millennials going back to agriculture. How great!" That's because the first farmer has a cool hipster beard, and the latter has an uncut Sikh beard. The first farmer is white, and the second isn't. See articles by the Washington Post and National Public Radio on millennials going back to agriculture. This is just a general problem among our people. If a brown man wears a chola, he's an uneducated reactionary. If a white man wears a chola, he's wonderfully in tune with his spirituality. You, despite how educated you think yourself, are merely a bigot. But beyond that, you're bigoted against your own people, making you a self-hating coconut. Ironically, the "progressive" circles which you inhabit love the idea of "going back to the land". But that doesn't move you to praise our people being in agriculture because the desire to insult your own people is so strong, since as stated above, you're a bigot. Btw, since you so hate agriculture, let me also ask you where the food is supposed to come from?

    Looking to start a residential school with two goals - (i)Provide underprivileged kids with a childhood and education (ii) Teach these kids gurmat, sangeet and shastart vidya with a view to prepare future parcharaks - ones who will help entire humanity (not just sikhs) unlock the peace and joy that is forever within us. I have created a facebook group , please join (https://www.facebook.com/groups/402189280239697/)- Feel free to add your friends - please spread the word , also lets start idea pooling as to how make this work at scale - my vision is at least one or more schools in every city/town/village where we have sizable sikh population. Currently our dasbandh is being wasted on lavish langars and palatial gurdwaras, we need simplicity and altruism that gurus espoused

    Come on don’t be so harsh on him! He’s a solid banda who is fighting for Sikh causes. This video is all about warming to those sceptical White Canadians. PR exercise nothing more. As far as his partner goes who knows what conversations have taken place between the two. Maybe she will take her Amrit from when they are officially married. Besides there are 101 Amritdhari girls who walk around who also wax and pluck so I don’t think Jagmeet Singhs fiancé can be pulled up on this yet. Also are seriously going to hold his privileged upbringing against him. He could have just chased the money and kept off the rador by being a yes man but instead he chose to be vocal about his grievances and chose to represent his community and be their voice when nobody would speak for them.

    The Sikh lad wanted no part of any confrontation. You can see in his body language that he was backing up as soon as they started to walk up to him. The smallest guy out of the pack was the one that landed that blow. I remember seeing this up and down the country outside clubs when I was younger. Apne lads getting sparked out when drunk. ‘Je peeni aah taan fir shittar raj ke khao’. The difference between our lads and Muslim lads out on a night out is that our lot go to get drunk and fall about like idiots. The Muslims train during the day and enter the clubs sober and leave the clubs sober at the end of the night. Then they go looking to hand out beatings to our drunk youngsters who are in no shape to defend themselves.

    We complain because we don't have enough Sikhs in politics. When we do have one we still complain because he's not a Mahapurkh. A generalisation that one could make is Sikhs in political power have not always adhered to maryada as strictly as janta. The same is true for many other communities, and just like Jagmeet they know where their loyalties lie - for the qaum. I find it hard to believe that his motives are otherwise. If they were, he would have been at an advantage had he still been a mona rather than an Amritdhari. While there's no doubt that Raajneeti from a Dharmic perspective should always contain elements of righteousness, the means to reaching the primary objective, which I believe in this case to be the betterment of the Sikh Qaum and amassing political influence and power to wield in the international arena, may well be outwardly adharmic. This especially applies at a personal level whereby one may be exempt from certain religious laws to serve the greater good. Executing Ranneeti and Raajneeti simply cannot be held to the standards of Rehat Maryada namely due to the fact that this is Kalyug. As stated in another post we cannot and should not expect the neetikaars to be pious and religious figures. Unless of course we're happy being personae non gratae forever. If it later becomes evident that his motivations, intentions, and loyalties lie elsewhere, by all means tear him down.

    typical sat night in bham, most apneh are p1ssed up, with the freshys at the bhangra places and the wana be players at places like mooch bar, where you get most of the dodgy apniyah. whilst the apneh are showing off buying big bottles of vodka or giving it loads to each other, you got the suleh coming in acting bad. by the end of the night, if they apneh aint kicked off with each other or pulled a girl, they usually go home with a kebab lol. the suleh meanwhile will get in their nice cars (usually rentals) and impress the girls. then you get the odd apna who will be walking round on his ones or in a small group and become a victim of the suleh acting bad. or in some cases ul get the apneh who start it off themselves and then get battered. dont get me wrong, there are a lot of apneh who are attacked innocently, but the sad thing is we as a race out in a multi national city have become easy targets. The same singhs in the gurdwareh armed with shastars, in baaneh or wearing tshirts with ak47s appearing to be militant are not going to be seen in these environments, or even if they were they would most likely blame the guys who are out labelling them sharabi regardless of whether they are or not. after 30 odd years off b.s with suleh, most apneh know what the deal is with them. suleh are clever aswell, any apneh who are a potential threat, they lick their asses in clubs. from my own experience of when i used to go clubbing, being a big lad part of a group with at least 10 other big apneh and sometimes kaleh, these suleh would always make the effort to reach out. funny enough it used to be the apneh who would cause us issues. my point is, if we saw suleh out acting like idiots, full of hot air, club full of their girls acting like kim kardashian what would we do? treat them as a joke yeah? my sympathy is with this pagg wala who got knocked out, but the bigger picture is that our own people have become easy prey, while those preaching and cussing them sat in the safety of gurdwareh or within their own gursikh circles aint nowhere to be seen. we need to bridge the gap and educate our people cleverly just like suleh do. my cousin sisters go out drinking, but i always ask to know where they are, even picking them up at stupid o clock, or my nephews i have got into training so they grow up being able to fight. bhul chukk maaf if i have offended anyone but this seems to be the bitter truth.

    frankly speaking says so much about our heritage that people have to attack in numbers even one Sikh , maybe it's time we restamped a new legend of toughness . I know all the musleh spend their time doing sports martials arts etc and get their lads doing the same from a tiny age (3) very very pushy on their kids to be aggressive . They are planning for the near future . Our lads need to leave the pubs and clubs to the saps and build real character and weight . Our Girls too

    Yeah I don't think so. I like rituals tbh. Your post is ridiculous. Making them take Amrit just for the sake of marriage is pointless as is making them learn the Baniya. That's pretty much the way muslims think - learn the prayers off by heart but have no clue what they're on about but all of a sudden you are now religious. It can also be a ritual. Many genuine Amritdharis don't always know all the Baniya off by heart, shall we bar them too? Prove they have not cut their hair? Show their arms and legs? You surely must be having a laugh. What kind of pakhand is this? Measuring up peoples Sikhi on yardstick. What's next, a strip search? Many people will not do this and you will just be pushing them further away from Sikhi. You post is immature.

    Well done to these Singhs who did what they had to do & escaped any legal ramifications. If all Singhs who are actually willing to make a stand for values & maryada ended up in prison we’d be left with plastic sikhs like you who would run Sikhi into the ground with your liberal self appointed beliefs & protocols. Theres a time & place to give sacrifice.... this situation was not one of those.... try understanding raj neeti.... to accomplish your task & avoid any damage, injury or loss is the perfect outcome.... try reading Dasam Bani to understand how TRUE Singhs & warriors function.

    I'm not being harsh lol, im speaking from history. There's a rigorous process to who gets amrit, in the ye olden days they used to do alot of looking into the person. If the person was a muslim the Nihangs used to make them eat pork to fully to prove they weren't muslim anymore (spies and such). Things like transgenderism (gender dysphoria) would be and is a mental disorder. Can you imagine a dude, dressing up as a Singhni? We're meant to accept Hukam, not tell people God made a mistake in giving us this gender.

So why, I ask you, would Sikhs not have zeal for their Guru and his Sikhi?

    In recent times the UK has changed. With western wars against Muslim countries, Muslim youth stick together. Whereas Sikhs are only 'apneh' by name. The situation is getting worse and white people are at boiling point. In a society where violent crime and the need protect your home and family is a must. If you can't look after yourself then don't go to these places such as clubs pubs. Don't expect Singhs in Bana to come as its your own fault. If Birmingham and other cities are this bad now what will it be like when your 15 year old daughter is a minority in Muslim secondary school living on a majority Muslim housing estate. From the housing estate I grew up in alot of Sikhs and English lads eventually converted to Islam through the Muslim brainwashing. White people who had money were clever and left the area. The problem in 10 years time is that Muslim people because they have lots of money through drug dealing, scams, fraud, business networking, whitening black money they are moving into richer areas. The hate in this country is now so bad that I think it's better to emigrate from Britain. Muslim people will not stop their culture and behavior and the Government continue to sweep this serious issue under the carpet. In the last 20 years this country has improved from the times of Thatcher and has become very rich and progressive. The cosmopolitan society that UK promotes is a climate that allows islam to thrive covertly and Muslims know this and are using it to their advantage. It's like in one of the Britain First videos the Paki says we've got it good here Immigration has been a good thing for the economy but just like Brexit if you don't address issues such as Muslim extremism then it will blow up later on.

    In order to do that you need to have cardiovascular conditioning and ideally not be drunk. Most of our youth are out of shape in all physical departments. The young lad had no clue about where he was. The guy is backed up in a dead end before they even reach him. The best you can do in that situation is land one on the biggest guy and move quick. And if does end up in the ground then make sure you cover up well. But to do anything you need to sober and in control.

    Maya follows those who follow God. They do wonderful kirtan. At the end of it... he did mention that he has never had to beg for anything. The youth go to listen to them. Its genuinely earned money. So what if they have a beautiful car and house. .. it is all the wish if God. Why slander those who guide you to God? Do we ourselves have the dhaat to perform amazing kirtan like them? We all paid from our jobs. No one forces us to donate to the poor.

    You can't expect to be in a perfect marriage until you are connected and in strong relationship with your Creator first. Otherwise anand karaj will be another ritual. Keep focusing on bani, watch katha, learn kirtan. The more you immerse yourself in Sikhi the more likely you will find an amritdhari partner. But don't go to Guruji asking for a partner. Should ask for Naam. Then your energy will be more likely to attract other beautiful energy also connected to the One. We have youtube now so can learn heaps (probably learn more than can at Gurudwara these days unfortunately) Rather than feeling in between two different worlds, question yourself whats holding you back from committing to Guruji/ vice versa?

    Why not contact Jagmeet SIngh in private then? Why not be so quick to address every other trangressor of rehit? Why be so angry about it? If none are high and none are low, how do you pull a man down to his rightful place? Didn't you just get called about your own rehit? In the past, when people called you out and they did it in a mean way, how'd that make you feel? Maybe the dude could benefit from reading your profile pic. Keep the confused looks on all my posts going, I'm going to print it on a t-shirt. Last question. How does saying "f" Jagmeet Singh embody the spirit of helping a brother? At least in the south they say "bless his soul" or "bless his heart" when they mean f that dude.

    OK, if that's the definition you want to use, then fine. You claim that Sikhi prohibits evangelism, i.e., prohibits "zealous advocacy or support of a particular cause". The cause here being Sikhi itself, I presume. So, what are you trying to say? That it prohibits 1. zealous advocacy of Sikhi 2. (non-zealous) advocacy of Sikhi 3. zealous support of Sikhi 4. (non-zealous) support of Sikhi So even supporting Sikhi is not allowed by Sikhi? That's nuts. Is support of Islam allowed by Sikhi? I'd be willing to guess that in your mind, support of Islam is OK, but support of Sikhi is not. Is advocacy of Sikhi OK? So somebody comes up to you (or whoever) and trashes Sikhi, trashes the Gurus. You can't reply because somebody told you advocacy of Sikhi is banned by Sikhi? Absolutely bonkers! Or, following the definition, is it only "zealous" advocacy of Sikhi that bothers you? So it's OK to advocate Sikhi, but just don't be zealous about it. Being a lukewarm advocate for Sikhi would be fine by you, just not a zealous advocate? The only problem is that Gurbani itself defines Sikhs as those who have a zeal for their Guru: ਅੰਦਰਿ ਸਚਾ ਨੇਹੁ ਲਾਇਆ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮ ਆਪਣੈ ॥ Andhar Sachaa Naehu Laaeiaa Preetham Aapanai || Deep within myself, I have enshrined true love for my Beloved. ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਹੋਇ ਨਿਹਾਲੁ ਜਾ ਗੁਰੁ ਦੇਖਾ ਸਾਮ੍ਹ੍ਹਣੇ ॥੧॥ Than Man Hoe Nihaal Jaa Gur Dhaekhaa Saamhanae ||1|| My body and soul are in ecstasy; I see my Guru before me. ||1|| ਸੂਹੀ (ਮਃ ੪) ਅਸਟ. (੨) ੧:੨ - ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੭੫੮ ਪੰ. ੧੪ Raag Suhi Guru Ram Das Does a person who goes into ecstasy upon merely seeing his Guru sound to you like a zealous advocate of Sikhi or a lukewarm one? Why, indeed, would Sikhs not be zealous of a Guru the mere sight of whom dispels sins: ਜਿਨੀ ਡਿਠਾ ਮੇਰਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਭਾਉ ਕਰਿ ਤਿਨ ਕੇ ਸਭਿ ਪਾਪ ਗਵਾਈ ॥ Jinee Ddithaa Maeraa Sathigur Bhaao Kar Thin Kae Sabh Paap Gavaaee || Those who have gazed lovingly upon my True Guru - all their sins are taken away. ਗਉੜੀ ਵਾਰ¹ (ਮਃ ੪) (੧੮) ਸ. (੪) ੨:੫ - ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੩੧੦ ਪੰ. ੧੭ Raag Gauri Guru Ram Das Such a great guru is the Guru that Sikhs yearn to see Him, and can't live for an instant without him: ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਸਾਗਰੁ ਗੁਣ ਨਾਮ ਕਾ ਮੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਦੇਖਣ ਕਾ ਚਾਉ ॥ Sathigur Saagar Gun Naam Kaa Mai This Dhaekhan Kaa Chaao || The True Guru is the Ocean of Virtue of the Naam, the Name of the Lord. I have such a yearning to see Him! ਹਉ ਤਿਸੁ ਬਿਨੁ ਘੜੀ ਨ ਜੀਵਊ ਬਿਨੁ ਦੇਖੇ ਮਰਿ ਜਾਉ ॥੬॥ Ho This Bin Gharree N Jeevoo Bin Dhaekhae Mar Jaao ||6|| Without Him, I cannot live, even for an instant. If I do not see Him, I die. ||6|| ਸੂਹੀ (ਮਃ ੪) ਅਸਟ. (੨) ੬:੨ - ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੭੫੯ ਪੰ. ੧ Raag Suhi Guru Ram Das Does that sound like zeal or lukewarmness (tepidity) to you? I hope you don't think I'm overdoing it with praising the Guru. The very definition of a Sikh includes the fact Sikhs are pleased with the Guru's praises. If you're not pleased with the Guru's praises, you're not a Sikh: ਗੁਰਸਿਖਾ ਕੈ ਮਨਿ ਭਾਵਦੀ ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥ Gurasikhaa Kai Man Bhaavadhee Gur Sathigur Kee Vaddiaaee || The glorious greatness of the Guru the True Guru is pleasing to the GurSikh's mind. ਗਉੜੀ ਵਾਰ¹ (ਮਃ ੪) (੧੮) ਸ. (੪) ੨:੧ - ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੩੧੦ ਪੰ. ੧੫ Raag Gauri Guru Ram Das (Realize that I'm not trying to read you out of Sikhi. What I'd like you to do is to have the same zeal for the Guru as is stated in Gurbani.) So are we agreed that Gurbani envisages a Sikh having zeal for his Guru, and consequently for Sikhi (which is just love for and being in accord with the Guru)?

    Kaam - Pyaar (or desire for Akaal) Krodh - Daya (and Bir Ras) Lobh - Santokh Moh - attachment to Naam? Hankaar - Nimrata All of the above is collectively Sat? Or maybe Sat is opposite of hankaar because that is the ultimate truth - no duality?

    Nearly, I was close. I thought I could hear Vaheguru simran but it turns out it was @Singh123456777 running towards me with his salotar.
