    Peevo Pahul Khanday Dhaar
  1. A Sikh lady got into scuffle with Korean Christian ladies who were being disrespectful and trying to convert Sikhs at our Harmandar Sahib in Amritsar. Some people tried to malign the Sikh lady saying she was a Hindu convert and trying to pitch the Sikhs against Christians in Punjab. But now the Christian missionaries are going live themselves on their FBs in Harmandar Sahib. When will Sikhs finally wake up? Only a few Sikh youth were going to convert to Christianity in the late 19th century and it triggered the biggest revival in our faith in the form of the Singh Sabha movement and today lacs have become Christian and we're still sleeping.
  2. The political correct attitude of our tree hugging liberals will ruin our kaum. Not so long ago Korean Christian ladies were preaching Christianity within the premises of Darbar Sahib, Amritsar. You can check a video by United Sikhs regarding this on youtube. All these movements started on a large scale after militancy especially, when Sikhi was at its weakest. There have been many incidents with Christians before, one Pastor Harbhajan Singh forcibly converted 2800 people in his village and spoke against the Gurus in the 2000s. They always used Sikh terms like satsangat for congregation and satguru for Jesus to convert naive and gullible Sikhs. We have no proactive and visionary leader left, so lets do what we can on a personal level by keeping an eye on developments in our native villages and helping the poor & Sikhi parchaar in our areas.
  3. Lessons to be learnt from the Khalistan Movement

    A few points come to mind. The 'social reformist' (samaj sudhaar) activities carried out by the Kharkoos were unnecessary and gave adverse effects to their objective of attaining a sovereign state. These include: * forcing women (including news anchors) to wear dupattas * threatening and murdering artists (even if they were vulgar like Chamkila) * banning the sale of alcohol, tobacco and meat, attacking liquor vendors, barbers, butchers, ... * disallowing music at weddings * banning saris, cosmetics for women, ... Just like any other action it did have positive sides too, the simple marriage ceremonies came with a ban on dowries but enforcing a 'moral code' is not the Sikh way and it alienated not only the non Sikhs but also the 'moderate' Sikhs. There was an immense amount of infighting among the kharkoos due to various reasons, including theological, personal and territorial disputes. The DDT and AKJ had at times taken to violent ways to enforce their viewpoints during the movement. Sikhs need to learn to put personal differences away and unite against a common enemy as was shown historically by the Misls. The intentional targeting of Hindus and families of police officials. While a lot of killings of Hindus were done by the govt under false flag operations to malign the Kharkoo movement, one cannot deny that several Sikhs were deliberately targeting Hindus and the families of police officials. Collateral damage is likely during guerilla warfare but these kind of acts are against our Sikh ideology, no matter what the circumstances are.
  4. The OP is referring to a Sakhi that surfaced in the 1980s and was reported to be from the Sau Sakhi - a book of 'prophecy' within the Sikh panth. This book has been interpolated with many times to add suitable prophecies, such as the come back of Maharaja Duleep Singh and him taking over Punjab to rouse the Sikhs and garner support. The British tampered with it to facilitate their rule by in a way approving their rule through the Guru. And it seems another Sikh did this in the 1980s. Below is the document mentioning the 'tabhi roos cheen hind mein charh aavay'. The population mentioned in the document (70 crore) is the population of India in the 80s, today it has far exceeded that number. The language is fairly recent and nowhere similar to the writings of our 18th century. The possibility of a nuclear war between India and China is not being ruled out, but the authenticity of this document is in serious doubt. Besides that, Russia has been a strong ally of India since the beginning. They have defended them against the US in the 1971 war and even gave intelligence inputs that triggered Operation Blue Star, hence it seems very unlikely that Russia will attack India.
  5. Sikh eating beef

    A Sikh should either eat no meat at all, or make no distinction and eat all kinds of meat given that it is slaughtered by jhatka. Abstaining from beef because the cow is holy is the result of living in a Hindu dominated society and the Hindu ancestry of many Sikhs. No animal is auspicious in Sikhi just like no particular day or month is. It is true that historically Sikhs did stand up against cow slaughter but this was mostly due to the fact that Muslims used to do that to terrorize and humiliate Hindus.
  6. ISIS in East Punjab

    The rise of radical Islam in Punjab is never touched upon within the Qaum but it is a pressing issue. With the restoration of hundreds of mosques, conversion of Sikhs to Islam in our Sikh home land, increase in religious riots involving Muslims and non-Muslims and the Muslim immigrants facilitating Jihadi activity and there have been talks about introducing Sharia Panchayats within Punjab. The Muslim population of East Punjab was 0.8 % in 1971 and was at 1.92% in 2011. We need to act proactively before it is too late. The Gujar immigrants from Kashmir have been known to harbor terrorists and store weapons for a while now. A consignment of weapons was found more than 10 years back near the Adampur town of Doaba. The Gujar deras of Gurdaspur were used as a refuge by the terrorists before they launched the 2015 Pathankot attacks. Now in April 2017 a Muslim immigrant from Uttar Pradesh who was living in Jalandhar for several years working as a tailor was arrested for his links to ISIS. These are the developments of dangerous trends for the future of Punjab.
  7. Good post. I however disagree with the above part in bold. There is no doubt that Maharaja Harinder Singh of Faridkot wanted an autonomous Sikh state as he had put forward this demand to the British, but Patiala has always been a sell out state viz a viz the Sikh Qaum. Vallabhbhai Patel used Maharaja Yadvinder Singh of Patiala to quell the demands for Khalistan or Sikhistan. The Maharaja organized a Panthic smagam in Patiala where he told Sikhs not to ask for an independant state. This fact was mentioned in the Hindustan Times paper at that time. The Maharaja Patiala was satisfied because he got good posts after independence. It is only after steps were taken such as the derecognition of princely families that the Yadvinder Singh started supporting the idea of an independent Sikh country. This fact is barely known but was shared by Jagjit Singh Chauhan in one of his articles.
