  1. I flagged up this issue a few years ago. Nothing. I said back then we're going to see traumatized young Sikhs in the next decade and more, taking this to the western media, which will bring us so much behzti, and will funnily enough dissuade future generations from Sikh-centric events and causes... so, basically doing the Indian intelligence services job on their behalf. Now it's still relatively in-house, but the [censored] chamche and enablers we've cultivated in our communities are doing a fantastic job of being in denial, either through ignorance or because of utter delusion, because their favourite [censored] has a silver tongue or can hold a note or two on the stage, which obviously means he / they must be beyond reproach(!) I'll repeat what I said a few years ago: we seem to have inadvertently created a situation in the West where young, gay or bisexual Sikh men are using the religious and communal social apparatus to indulge their sexual urges, believing they are hidden from plain view. Gay does not equal paedophile, but when there's an overlap of these same individuals trying their luck with underage boys in their supposed care at these get-togethers and camps, then we have a serious problem.
  2. War In Syria

    JQ.
  3. War In Syria

    Lying British and American scum. The media stooges making the case for these strikes need hanging. The plan was always Iraq > Afghanistan > Libya > Syria > Iran > Russia. Saudis are comfortably in bed with the various western governments and agencies pushing their respective agendas. I expect another flimsy pretext for war to emerge in the next few years, with Iran being next, perhaps in another 10 or so years. Meanwhile, the incessant disinformation and brainwashing will continue.
  4. Punjabiyat - An issue for Sikhs

    I had the exact same thought yesterday. I agree, the positive aspects of our culture such as our language, our folklore, and other cultural and historical markers should be treasured for posterity, but I can't help but think we've lost our way. In many ways I think Punjabiyat has inadvertently dumbed down the impact and image of Sikhi. I look at the contemporary figureheads of the Panth, and I think, "No. You can fool these simpletons, but you aren't making a mug out of me. You're not what Dasme Paatshah had in mind for us." But, as I said, there are some wonderful aspects to our culture besides the weird self-destructive and egoistic pandering parts of it. I'll try to briefly summarise the problem as I see it, and I genuinely believe a considerable aspect of the overall problem lies in third party perception as well as our own Punjabi interpretations gradually bleeding into that which should be immutable. In Sikhi we have a philosophy that, if gifted to a community of people who came from medieval Italy, for argument's sake, would be considered a treasure for humanity. The problem as addressed by this topic arises because of the somewhat erroneous assumption (I wouldn't quite call it discriminatory) that the humble origins of the faith and the seemingly... unsophisticated following who took up the faith are considered to be an indication of the substance and value of the philosophy itself. We haven't done ourselves any favours in this regard, as this is where I believe Punjabiyat is wielded as a stick to beat Sikhi, because we've sort of floundered and coasted along since the arguable golden age of our faith, and eventually for the admittedly essential act of survival and proliferation we've become the very thing that we weren't kind of supposed to, i.e. an organised religion and everything it entails. We've switched off. We just follow without any serious khoj. Coupled with the human desire to create factions and subgroups for various purposes, which could be argued is even more of a problem in desi cultures, there's a sense we've forgotten and neglected the spirit of that essential founding spark which allowed our faith to emerge. Being surrounded by the Indianess of India on all sides means we've regressed socially, intellectually, and spiritually. There's so much going on, and can't be pinned on a few reasons.
  5. Forced Marriage

    Like I said previously, he seems like a decent chap. I'm simultaneously frustrated with his lack of gumption and a serious dearth of street smarts and healthy cynicism. Again, I've seen two close friends of mine chewed up and spat out by the Punjabi marriage process, and I think I'm seeing something similar here. Although in this instance the girl seems to be faultless.
  6. State of the UK - Is it safe?

    I said "people." I never alluded to their nationality or ethnicity. My next door neighbours are a family of Nigerian Christians. Most kindest and warmest people I've ever known. They've shown me more love than any Sikh ever has. There's savages in all races. In this particular context, there's a hathi in the room not many are eager to discuss, which is ironic considering there's many, many black nationalities and ethnicities who have no problem calling a spade a spade. It's the perpetually offended "educated" white man who's terrified of conducting a frank and honest discussion. That's ultimately to their detriment as history will prove one day.
  7. Forced Marriage

    You aren't cutout for a Punjaban. If you're incapable of acknowledging your own character, personality type, and general demeanour at the age of 32, then I just don't know what to say. Look for a Sikh woman closer to your own personality in your own country. You'll never find the things you're looking for in Punjab. A UK born braggart can blag a marriage to a Punjaban, and make a decent go of it. You seem like the sensitive sort to put it mildly. They can smell that on a man from a mile away. You'll be on the backfoot from the moment she claps her eyes on you. Be honest with yourself. Acknowledge your shortcomings whatever they may be. Even with everything you're going through, your refusal to introspect and learn is shocking.
  8. State of the UK - Is it safe?

    Some of the c4@p I've heard all week from some of the most so-called educated and informed people in society in regards to this issue, tells me this country doesn't have very long remaining. Delusional cowards. Let it burn. Protect yourselves and your families as best you can. If these animals and their enablers want to destroy each other, they can go right ahead. As unpopular as the following sentiment may be, until society accepts the idea that some people are born bad -- lower life forms who've inhabited the garb of Man -- then nothing will ever change. You could spend your entire life trying to plead with, reason, and tolerate these individuals. The tragedy is good people having to share living space with such individuals.
  9. Forced Marriage

    Hit your missus with this classic. She'll be putty in your hands. Don't be a Balaiti you-know-what.
  10. Forced Marriage

    Having gone back and re-read this topic and further replies, I have to say I feel the girl is not to blame in this situation. Notwithstanding her dull personality and everything we know about the contemporary Punjaban, that's no excuse to discard her when she doesn't meet expectations. That's really poor form. She's entered this marriage with seemingly good intentions. The pickiness being shown by OP should've been enacted before the marriage. I can appreciate a guy in his early 20's being coerced into marriage, but early 30's? It's uncommon, but OP shouldn't have let it happen. Whilst I'm not onboard with the Bollywood-ised solutions being proposed by some in this thread, you need to step up and sort this out like a bundha. Either make a go of it, or tell her parents you aren't bringing her over, and accordingly sort out something on the divorce front. Unfortunately, if you do end it, you won't be able to prevent her parents and family from kicking off. That's unavoidable. They might take things really badly, and in that case you'll have to deal with some pretty stark stuff. They'll be gunning for you, and looking to hurt you in any way possible. As I said, there's no cordiality in Punjabi divorce. You're going to be liable for a hefty sum of cash if you decide to part ways. Again, unavoidable. I get the impression you think you deserve a better "rank" of girl, but I'll be honest, I don't think you're quite deserving of the kind of female you're imagining. You have some serious growing up to do. I think you have a good heart, but somehow you've been browbeaten and dominated by overbearing family and parents, and that's never good for a guy. There's a way of being a respectful and obedient son without being oblivious and a walkover. You've got some soul-searching to do, preferably some that involves honourable behaviour.
  11. You keep chipping away on as many fronts as possible until those who write the narrative of society deem your cause worthy of being noticed. If you're lucky, the cause is promoted and championed by these social trendsetters and mood-makers. Then watch how it passes into the acceptable and normal mainstream. Until then, be prepared to be demonised, slandered, and killed. It's all one disturbing game; disturbing because what's at stake are the lives of millions.

  13. India

    This phenomenon you've rightly observed is brought into even greater relief when you go to Nankana Sahib in Pakistan. The atmosphere and general state of the asthaans in Pakistan is almost like travelling back in time to our Guru Sahib's era. I can't decide whether it's a case of neglect (Muslims gonna Muslim) or a desire to maintain those sites in a style that is as close to their original condition as possible. Don't get me wrong, they aren't in a total state of disrepair or anything as grave as that, but what's noticeable when compared to Indian based asthaans is the general lack of that feeling of sterility of visiting a tourism spot (in that typically cack-handed, ostentatious Indian way that just seems to be pushed to the extreme) which is what's gradually happening to major religious sites in Punjab. The historical and spiritual authenticity of our holy sites is being replaced by something I'm certain is doing more harm than good. Maintenance and upkeep is good, but not at the expense of the overall feel and experience of the place.

    Something, something, Alexander The Great, something, something, letters to mother, something, something, Punjabans ploughing the fields. Apparently, they're born with it, maybe it's Maybelline.
