    While i know most on this forum don't really like Sunny Hundal, this article written by him pretty much hits the nail on the head. http://barficulture.tv/world/103

    For anyone who had any sympathies for Britain First, what they would say to a comment like the above is "Go back to where you came from".

    Sorry Big_Tera, a fascist is a fascist, doesn't matter how good their marketing and PR has gotten, this idea that they've changed and are only against muslims now is just as wrong as them being against people of colour. If they said they were against extremism regardless of race or religion it would be one thing but they don't, there's plenty of extremism in the christian community but they ain't saying anything, they are fascists, plain and simple, and this idea that they have praise for Sikhs, they know that Sikhs have battled with Moghuls in the time of the Guru's and made the assumption that Sikhs are the natural enemy of Muslims because of this, someone should send them a press release and tell them that it's actually injustice that Sikhs are against, not any particular religion.

    Those who grew up in the 70's and 80's know who Britain first really are, they used to be called the BNP and the National Front before that, they are a fascist group and anyone who thinks they respect or get on with Sikhs should ask the elder generation about their previous incarnations.

    I fully understand the point your trying to make, what i don't understand is what relevance it has with the issue at hand, here we have a guy who's only crime was point out the human rights violations perpetrated by the Indian government during and after 1984, as a result of this he's been arrested and has been sat in a jail for 24 day's, tortured both mentally and physically, been denied access to the British consulate and god only knows what else he's going through, him having a turban or cut hair has nothing to do with anything, i apologise for my annoyance but I've been conversing with you over something which is minuscule in relevance to what's actually happened here. I am well aware of what Guru Gobind Singh Ji mandated and have no issue with that, your while point is about Sikh's with cut hair (if such a thing can exist) not being recognisable as a Sikh, i take your point and leave you to your opinion and am closing this discussion and as already mentioned, it's worth going back on topic.

    I actually do know Sarbjit personally and to say he fly's under the radar is nonsense, just because he's not in the public eye defending Sikhi all the time doesn't mean he's "flying under the radar". Like i've already said, there are plenty of turban wearing Sikhs who fly under the radar and only come out when it's in there interest, just go to any Gurdwara in the UK, they're called committee members, like i said, each to their own.

    Prefer words with meaning, try Singh Mahoon Or artists like L-Fresh, artists who's words have meaning.

    I think this debate could go on for a while, mt issue with people saying "mona" is the simple fact that i know Punjabi's with cut hair that respect and adhere to Sikhi more than ones with a dastaar and even fully grown beards, as far as flying under the radar, there are plenty of us out there with a pagh on our heads that do that, it's not restricted to those that have cut hair. Sarbjit Singh from Rajoanatv is a highly regarded human rights activist, the man know's more about injustices done to Sikhs than anyone I know, he's a "mona", i've never seen him fly under the radar. Like i said, we could debate forever, everyone has their own opinion and though process.

    1. Read what i wrote, "i'm sorry, but if that happened to anyone, turban or not, we should be protesting.", i'm not alluding to you and whatever stance you have on protesting or not, Them moment you said the word "mona" you made a division, if you had made the same post and not mentioned the fact that he had cut hair no one would be disagreeing with you. Where did you say what happened to him was okay, you didn't and i'm not saying you did, that's your assumption. 2. I stand by what i said, read what i said in context, i said "largest democracy" in the world",, if you live in the largest democracy in the world would you expect to be taken in broad daylight for criticising the Government or the way they run the country. I'm well aware of the Human Right's violations committed in Punjab and by the police there, everyone know's someone whose suffered, i'm no different, if this proves anything it's that Sikh's need to take a long hard look at what they call their motherland and how much respect we get there.
  11. #freejagginow

    That has to be the single most un-educated post i've read in a long while, having a dastaar or having cut hair has nothing to do with what's happened, the point of this is that some visited another country and was kidnapped in broad daylight and is being detained without charge while being subjected to various types of torture all because he runs a website highlighting human rights violations, i'm sorry, but if that happened to anyone, turban or not, we should be protesting. How vigilant do you expect the average person to be, no one expects to be kidnapped in the middle of the day for airing you own opinions on a website in the "largest democracy" in the world. The man's being scapegoated, simple as, having a turban or not is irrelevant.
  12. 'The Boy with a Top knot `

    I'm not talking about the author, knowing Satnam i can tell you he's a lot less Liberal than most people think (but everyone's entitled to their own opinion), I'm on about your comment "He associated and blamed his life problems with Sikhi when it was backward Indian punjabi culture. This programme will misrepresent Sikhi.", I'm assuming you've read the book for you to be able to pass judgement like that.
  13. 'The Boy with a Top knot `

    I take it you've read the book then.
  14. 'The Boy with a Top knot `

    Read the book years ago and remember meeting Satnam, I've stayed in touch with him over the years and am glad he's getting some recognition, he a good author, as far as the book having anything to do with Sikhi, is doesn't so don't watch the tv adaptation thinking it has, it's more about Punjabi culture and his own perspective on it.
  15. I really don't, for the life of me, as a Sikh, understand how someone can say "No one is going to die in Burma because Khalsa Aid doesn't go to the camps to help out." really man, it's a terrible shame that people think like this, it's like seeing someone injured on the road and saying "Nah man, leave it, someone else can help them". Khalsa Aid put themselves forward as a "Humanitarian Aid Agency" not a Sikh one, there are bigger problems in the world than those going on in our backyards, they do help out in Punjab, alot, like i said in a previous post, do your research, they help out on an individual basis, the problem in Punjab is it's riddled with corruption and backhanded politics which make it very difficult for any charity to operate without giving out "donations" to local mp's and police, in other word's taking the money people donate and using it to bribe people to get to those who need help, kind of defeats the object of it all, that's why they go in and help individuals instead of communities.
