  1. Jus Reign's stupid anti-Sikhi rants

    Thanks for highlighting this. It's so sad to hear that this is what he thinks. Up to now he has been seen as someone who parodies humorous aspects of Punjabi/Sikh society. His takedown of greedy Gurdwara pardhans was funny and appropriate, I thought. I have criticized people on this board who refer to non-Amritdharis as "Punjabis" and not as Sikhs. I continue to maintain that that are loads of people who have love for our Gurus in their hearts and respect for Guru's rehit and maryada, even though they might not personally follow it. But it seems Jus Reign is not one of them. The turban is a marker of social dignity. It's supposed to mean that you do dignified things. ਮਃ ੫ ॥ ਫਰੀਦਾ ਦੁਨੀ ਵਜਾਈ ਵਜਦੀ ਤੂੰ ਭੀ ਵਜਹਿ ਨਾਲਿ ॥ Fareed, the world dances as it dances, and you dance with it as well. ਸੋਈ ਜੀਉ ਨ ਵਜਦਾ ਜਿਸੁ ਅਲਹੁ ਕਰਦਾ ਸਾਰ ॥੧੧੦॥ That soul alone does not dance with it, who is under the care of the Lord God. ||110|| p1383 He doesn't even have the respect to say Guru Nanak when talking about Guru Nanak Dev ji? Just "nanak", not even capitalized? What a loser. Oh, by the way, Guru Nanak Dev ji did create an organized religion, during their own lifetime. Sikhs did not "turn it into a religion", <banned word filter activated> (aimed at Jus Reign). Does he know that Guru Sahib created Kartarpur Sahib and instituted the basic maryada followed today by Sikhs (Asa di Vaar, Japji, kirtan, etc.)? For example, Bhai Gurdas ji writes in // 1, Pauri 38, about the maryada at Kartarpur: ਸੋਦਰ ਆਰਤੀ ਗਾਵੀਐ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਵੇਲੇ ਜਾਪ ਉਚਾਰਾ॥ Sodhar Arathee Gaveeai Anmrith Vaelae Jap Ouchara|| Sodar and Arati were sung and in the ambrosial hours Japu was recited. Hmm, that sounds "organized" to me. I would like to ask Jus Reign if he's ever been to or watched on TV an "organized" sporting event, a music concert, opera, play? It's OK for all this stuff to be "organized", just not religion? There's something that happens when somebody starts thinking too much of themselves: they start to think too little of the Guru. I hope he can get back to funny man, not a criticizer of Guru Nanak ji and his panth.
  2. Divorce in Sikhism

    Yeah, one of the problems with FLDS (fundamentalist Mormons) is that it's not merely arranged marriage, but forced marriage. That too, underage marriage. Plus a whole bunch of other abusive cult tactics.
  3. Moral: 1) Don't eat meat or 2) Only eat meat slaughtered by Singhs in a chauni for immediate consumption.
  4. Some more Home Truths

    While the fuss over Kentucky Fried Chicken running out of chicken is funny (it takes a long time to ship those murgas from Kentucky), it's quite interesting you term Brexit as "suicidal". How is voting to take Britain's future in its own hand's suicide? How is Britain's very existence being destroyed and amalgamated into a "United States of Europe" not suicide? How is not allowing millions of Muslim military-age males to simply walk into Europe suicide?
  5. Some more Home Truths

    You're right about this. But here, what are you talking about? The 1980s/1990s are over. There is no organized killing of Sikhs by the Indian state. As far as arms, I was unable to find detailed information on any Canada/India arms deals, but this seems to indicate Canada would sell avionics/helicopters/naval electronics to India. None of these are being used to "kill Sikhs". So what are you talking about? I do realize the Punjab Police killed two Sikhs in the Bargari incident. But Indian police carry either obsolete .303 Lee-Enfield rifles or AK-47s, neither of which Canada is going to export to India. So, again, how is Canada exporting arms that India is using to "kill Sikhs"?
  6. So Jagmeet gets married ....

    How did you manage to score an invite?
  7. So Jagmeet gets married ....

    And yet, it happens all the time, including very likely in your own family and mine. I realize in this case both the bride and groom are from Canada, but maybe they wanted their relatives in India to be able to attend (as you know getting a Canadian visitor visa is difficult for Indian residents). How do the few pictures posted above confirm that? Because she's not carrying a 3 ft kirpan? I'm not claiming she took Amrit, but you also have no information that she didn't. What? She's wearing a chunni, what else do you want? She's even covering her head in the photo not in the presence of Guru Sahib. How's that disrespectful? I agree, the hukumnamma or guidance said to conduct weddings in Gurdwaras. Are you sure about that? It seems the background is the hills/forests of Himachal Pradesh, where Baru Sahib is located.
  8. Justin Trudeau visit to India

    That's the funniest thing I've read or heard in the last 24 hours! Thanks for the laugh.
  9. Who are the moderators on this site?

    I agree that extremely abusive posters should be sanctioned. However, mildly abusive posts can simply be replied to in the same coin or ignored. Also, I personally favor leniency toward anti-Sikh posts because there are plenty of pro-Sikh posters on this board to counter them, and the exercise of responding to such posts brings up important points for the lurkers to read.
  10. Shouldn't we broaden the criteria to Amritdhari Sikhs. Not that I don't believe that all Sikhs should keep basic rehat but it affects Amritdharis and their rehat more. Amritdhari/non-Amritdhari, it doesn't matter. Avoiding 4 bajjer kurehits is basic rehit. If somebody out there doesn't want to keep their hair, for whatever reason, it doesn't give them carte blanche to eat meat (or halal meat), screw girls, or use tobacco and other nashas.
  11. Yes, it's a 2 minute video. I viewed the whole thing. He spent about 30 seconds on bajjar kurehits, about 7.5 seconds on meat. Far from taking things out of proportion, I put things in the proper perspective and called the 2 minute speech a summary of Rehit. It's not an exposition. For that, you could listen to the daily katha from Hazur Sahib. I would be genuinely interested if anybody could post katha from Hazur Sahib encouraging eating of khulla maas (open meat). OK, that's fine. But if you wouldn't know, why are you trying to rebut me? Again, Hazuri Singhs are not lax in their maryada as to eat meat from every Tom, <banned word filter activated>, and Harry. Well, forgive me for that, because usually people post links that support their argument. In any case, it's good that you did post the link, because it backs up the idea that Sikhs should not eat khulla maas (open meat) like the original poster thinks.
  12. Promotion of eating meat is not allowed. This thread is about warning Sikhs not to eat khulla maas (open meat), thereby reducing meat consumption by Sikhs.
  13. For a Sikh to eat "any" meat that happens not to be Halal is to make himself into a lobhi dog. You're using this to justify eating non-Jhatka meat? The 2 minute video you posted was a beautiful summary of Sikh Rehit by the Hazuri Babaji. It was not a long exposition, however. Are you seriously claiming that Hazuri Sikhs eat whatever meat they can find, just happening to weakly ask if it's Halal? Most Nihungs support Jhatka? I would genuinely like to know one that does not. The link you posted does not support your assertion. It talks about the theory behind Jhatka and how that's the Nihung way. How does that support your assertion that there is no specific Nihung maryada regarding meat?
  14. Divorce in Sikhism

    That's actually not true, bro. More children usually means more religious children. For one thing, in large families, each individual child has less pull on the head of the family. The head is more respected, and therefore the children obey more. They learn that they are not the be all and end all. That there is someone above them. Why would you want to teach them individually? It is considered more effective to teach people as a group. Guru Sahibs call this concept Sangat. Humans are social animals, and the more people that follow a certain thing, the more firm they are likely to be in that belief. Furthermore, in a typical two-child family, there's one girl, one boy. Each has new clothes and other stuff for every year of their life. They get an entitled mentality. A single child is the apex of entitlement mentality. In large families, clothes and other items get handed down. Both the giver and receiver learn to decrease their moh-maya and haumai regarding material things. And that's the basis of religion.
