  2. How Important is Punjabi Language for Sikhs?

    I'm still about bhen ji. I'm just busy as hell with work. And frankly speaking, when I read so many people defending their backwards -a55 penduistic casteism here recently I realised that in reality I'm mainly dealing with lost causes here.

  4. So you narrow the whole issue of caste to your personal viewpoint whilst being almost wilfully ignorant of the stank it causes in our wider community.
  5. Just shows you how retarded you must be: 'no harm done' - are you demented - there's PLENTY of harm done from this crap.
  6. Labour councillor who was sacked for defending Sarah Champion in row over grooming gangs says the party has a 'problem with black and ethnic minority women' A sacked Labour councillor has claimed the party has a 'problem with black and ethnic minority women'. Amina Lone went on TV to say that MP Sarah Champion was being treated as a 'scapegoat' after she was forced to resign. The member for Rotherham had said the UK had a 'problem' with British Pakistanis abusing white girls. Manchester councillor Ms Lone went on to stand up for her, telling the BBC: 'She is not a racist but a brave woman speaking out about a politically awkward issue.' The Labour leadership at the council said the decision not to reselect her had been taken because she had a poor attendance and campaigning record. But the punishment will add to concerns that moderates who speak out against Mr Corbyn are being silenced. Miss Champion quit as shadow women and equalities minister last week. The Labour leader told her she would be sacked from the Shadow Cabinet if she refused to resign over her controversial article in The Sun five days before. The article came after 17 men were convicted of forcing girls in Newcastle upon Tyne to have sex. Miss Champion, MP for Rotherham, has campaigned for years about organised sexual abuse in her constituency where at least 1,400 children were exploited. After Miss Champion's resignation, Miss Lone went on BBC2's Newsnight to say: 'I think she's been punished and used as a scapegoat because as a politician she's an easy target.' She later wrote on Twitter: 'I grew up in a Muslim community where these attitudes were common. 'White girls are easy', 'Nobody cares about them', 'They are just slags', 'Their parents don't look after them properly' etc were/are still said today. I hear it regularly. 'Sarah Champion was talking about a particular type of grooming which is carried by men because of their cultural/religious practices. Obviously not all men. 'She is not a racist but a brave woman speaking out about a politically awkward issue. Labour, bury your heads as much as you like in the black and white purist world you push. The chickens will come home to roost.' Miss Lone, who has been a councillor in Manchester for seven years, has been barred from standing again in next year's local elections. In a letter to the party, a former local party chairman has called it 'one straw too many' and said it brought 'shame to the Manchester Labour party'. Drew Walsh said: 'Councillors who do not fit in and comply are sidelined or worse still, removed from the council.' Miss Lone told the Manchester Evening News that her 'outspoken' campaigning on gender equality in the Muslim community may have fuelled the decision. She said her de-selection was the result of a faction 'looking to curry favour and get rid of an outspoken woman', adding: 'It is sad that a minority within tarnish the work of so many decent Labour people. 'It is curious this action has been taken at a time when I am loudly championing gender equality within faith communities.' Usually sitting councillors are automatically allowed to stand again, but earlier this summer Miss Lone was ordered to face an interview on the grounds that her campaign and council attendance records were not good enough. She was not re-selected despite a letter of support from council leader Sir Richard Leese, and also lost a subsequent appeal. A fellow female councillor who went through the same process, again due to issues with her campaign record, was re-selected. A Labour spokesman said: 'The process for selecting local government candidates is clear and outlined in the party's rulebook. 'We conduct a fair and rigorous appeals process with members from outside the area. The decisions made are based on evidence provided.'

  7. Wake up. It isn't even going in the right direction. Take a look at most modern 'Panjabi' films and a lot of the songs (by this I mean those released in last few years). They are heavily caste based. Maybe we should face facts and hold our hands up at the truth? Is this problem is entirely of our own making.

  9. Talking to certain Sikhs about casteism within the panth seems futile these days. Certain people's obsession with their caste identity seems to trump any logical argument about the harm it does.
  10. The Path to a Sikh Renaissance

    I think that varies from region to region. Might be some places where it is very handy to have.
  11. What about speculating on the money markets? Is that forbidden too?
  12. BBC partition program by anita rani

    I don't think so. These mainstream media types only ever sing white man's songs for them. They wouldn't be in that job otherwise. By the way I heard she comes from one Hindu and one Sikh parent, so she might not be exactly sympathetic to Singhs. She's might be another leftfield attractive token. As a bloke, if I was in an analogous position (say as a young boy), where I'd be helpless in the face of overwhelming numbers and vicious intent. I would f**king appreciate it if someone put one in my head rather than face prolonged repeated anal rapes and mutilation and humiliation. But chalo. Again folks, notice how Anita's granddad was away being a soldier boy for goray, whilst his whole family got annihilated. Lesson to be learnt.
  13. BBC partition program by anita rani

    Thanks. But I need to sign in for that. Is it available on youtube?
  14. BBC partition program by anita rani

    We should be REALLY careful of the language we use. We shouldn't let left OR right wing terminology become entwined in a pro-Sikh perspective. And protests are useless unless they have serious nuisance value, and our lot aren't inclined for this. It looks like millennials are completely risk-averse in this respect. It's like they have had the anakh brainwashed out of them.
  15. BBC partition program by anita rani

    It's an ongoing thing in England. Appease the threat from muslims by demonising Sikhs.
  16. BBC partition program by anita rani

    In the first one (shown a few years ago) she seemed livid at her own people because one of her relatives was killed (by other relatives) rather than captured and sexualy abused.
  17. Lessons to be learnt from the Khalistan Movement

    This is obviously on the books. Pretty soon (if not already) they wont need too much of an indigenous agricultural sector as they'll have enough enough money to fly or ship most of their food like a lot of western countries do.
  18. Lessons to be learnt from the Khalistan Movement

    I absolutely agree. But like I said, Panjab does generate plenty of money, and the SGPC, which is essentially a de facto government, has enough money (through the donations of Sikhs) to use this to modernise the region. We all know the centre doesn't like us, to expect them to actually help is bordering on insanity.
  19. Lessons to be learnt from the Khalistan Movement

    Why wait for independence? Why can't they start doing it now? Why didn't Panjabi SIkhs start this years ago? There is a backwards conservatism when it comes to innovation out there, not to mention widespread petty jealousy.
  20. Lessons to be learnt from the Khalistan Movement

    With hindsight I think one of the biggest weaknesses of the movement was its economic vision. I think some younger people might forget (or might not know) that the lehar took place on the back of the (now infamous) green revolution. There was way too much dependence on the agricultural industry. Given the water issues even back then, it would've been more prudent to diversify the economy in Panjab at that point. I think even this dependence on agriculture is a legacy of colonialism, with a lot of the alternate industries that existed in M. Ranjit Singh's time (that may have developed into modern economies) being destroyed. I mean, Panjab was a thriving weapons manufacturer previously. The oft-repeated crying that the 'gorment' doesn't invest in Panjab for these things is pathetic in my eyes. We all know that Gurdwara donations alone (which end up largely in SGPC hands) could more than cover this. Who would've thought that a few decades later, India would be at the forefront of space programs and technology, whilst Panjab is wracked with smack and narcotics issues. I think another MASSIVE failure was the misconception (many of us had, including me) that the international community would give a toss about Sikh sovereignty/independence. We now know that the UN doesn't really care and is a toothless beast anyway. Brits did their thing of pretending to be neutral but in reality being far from. We didn't have anything to bargain with like others might (like oil and other natural resources), which might have impelled people to assist us (even if for selfish motives). Our perception of the wider world and international politics was unbelievably naive.
  21. Bhai Jagraj Singh has passed away.

    Jagraj wasn't your 'ahhm' parcharak. He boldly tackled issues in the UK that the average parcharakh would never dare to, lest they stood out from the crowd and lost even those few pennies that the Gurdwara committees contemptuously threw at them. Bhai Jagraj was of a different mold. He played his part in highlighting the grooming issue, and condemned those who washed their hands of this serious matter. He faced up to xtian and islamic parcharaks when all we usually ever get is mundane 'preaching to the converted' in Gurdwaras. He encouraged us to be truly weapons trained with modern firearms. Importantly, he faced up to political realities of Sikhs in the UK, who have a habit of trusting authorities like gullible dimwitted (aka lulloo) children. He thought that the marches that take place in London were a waste of time (I feel the same way too). He faced up to scarcely touched historical truths of the anglo-Sikh relationship too and how it transformed Sikhi into 'Sikhism' which weakened us. He told us how caste in-between us became solidified at this time too - due to Brit policies of divide and rule. He fearlessly faced up to the ugly truth about partition (and told the world how this event effected his own family as well as the wider Sikh world). He challenged the British collusion in 1984 via the SAS. He travelled the world preaching. With his brother being like he is (Sunny), he showed us that we can strive in our faith as individuals regardless of our siblings. He done all of this and MUCH MUCH more - and all in an articulate fashion without a whiff of penduism. I remember that famous The Big Questions episode on the BBC where Bhai Jagraj was in the audience with another, much older (but apparently not wiser) chaaploose 'uncle' (Lalvani was his name - I think??). I think the way Jagraj confidently handled himself in stark contrast to the outright sycophancy of the other Sikh man there perfectly exemplified his importance to me. I mean imagine Jagraj wasn't there! Imagine what weak, guileless, sycophantic stereotypical impression of Sikhs that uncle would have left on the minds of viewers......... I agree that all quality, heart felt parchaar should be rewarded (but we should be careful of making this reward the objective of the paracharaks). But in this case given the groundbreaking, precedent setting nature of Bhai Jagraj's contribution, I'm not surprised that people feel he is especially worthy of attention - the least we can do is give his family a little hand-up for all he gave us - and when it was needed the most too. I thought I'd post this just to remind everyone how effective he was at conveying uncomfortable truths, even in difficult circumstances:
  22. Said the man who loves talking about Sikhi but can't be asked to learn Gurmukhi.... You're a comedian Virk.
  23. Who would you put your money on?
  24. Well, I only just told you you need to stop relying on others for this information and go direct. And straight away you do exactly what I'm saying is a waste of time?!?!? Mine and yours. Absorb yourself in it and see what comes to you. Leave all preconceptions behind. I don't have the time or desire to minutely analyse your words mate. It's the weekend. If you seriously don't realise how much your perspective will be skewed because of language barriers after all that's been said - that ain't too bright. Foreign translations should only ever be a gateway, a first tentative step - if you've liked what you've read so far - get in deeper and experience the real thing. This isn't about intellectualising this is about experiencing. Which nicely reminds me to get on with life and stop wasting time on the web like a proper knob. See ya.
