Bebe Nanaki Ji


Bebe Nanaki ji was elder sister of Guru Nanak and the daughter of Kalian Chand (Baba Kalu) and Mata Tripta, was born in 1464 in her mother's home at village of Chahal, now in Lahore district of Pakistan Punjab. The Guru's love for his sister is referred to in most touching terms in some of the Sakhis. A sister's love for her brother is a perennial theme of Punjabi folklore. There are many stories of Nanaki's deep and devoted affection for her brother, Nanak. Five years older then Guru Nanak, she was the first to recognize his spiritual eminence and to become his devotee. She protected Nanak from their father's wrath, when repeatedly he disappointed and angered him.

She was with him throughout the early years of his childhood. When Guru Nanak Dev was only Six years old in 1475, Nanaki was married to Jai Ram, a revenue official of very good reputation, at Sultanpur, which is in the present native state of Kapurthala, and was then the capital of the Jalandhar Doab. Nanak continued to live at home. He rebelled against any norms that were imposed without reason. He loved to be in the company of saints who were The wise men of the day, and gave money away to the poor and the hungry. His father despaired of never being able to make him behave and take on a respectable position in the village. And so it was that his father gave up, and so, at the age of fifteen, Nanak was sent to live with his sister, and to work for her husband. It was Jai Ram who arranged the wedding of Nanak to Sulakhani, daughter of Moolchand Chand Khatri and Mata Chando of the village Pakhoke, District Gurdaspur. Herself Childless, Bebe Nanaki adored her brother, Nanak, and felt herself blessed when he came to join the Nawab's service and put up with her at Sultanpur.

She arranged Guru Nanak's marriage and she loved his sons, Sri Chand and Lakhmi das, as her own. Guru Nanak reciprocated her affection and after he had quit the Nawab's service to go out to preach his message, he did not fail to visit Sultanpur and meet his sister between whiles. Once as he visited her in 1518, Bebe Nanaki seeing her end near, detained him a short while. As she had wished, she departed this likfe in the presence of her brother- Guru Nanak Dev ji. Three days later, her husband, Jai Ram, also expired. Guru Nanak himself performed their obsequies. There is no doubt that perhaps first Gur Sikh was none other than Bebe Nanaki and second Gursikh was Mata Sullakhni ji, Guru Nanak Dev's Wife.

In the Punjabi language, out of respect, elder sister is called Bebe. Bebe Nanki was the elder sister of Guru Nanak. She has a special place in the Sikh history. She played an important role in the spread of Sikhism. She was the first disciple of Guru Nanak and so she is considered one of the prominent women in the Sikh history. She was born in 1464, five years before Guru Nanak to Mata Tripta and Mehta Kalu who lived at Talwandi, now called Nankana Sahib in Pakistan. She was born at the house of her maternal grandfather, Ram Ji,of village Chahal, district Lahore. Her maternal grandfather and grandmother loved her a lot and named her Nankian, which means house of maternal grandparents. By and by the word Nankian was changed into Nanki. Her uncle, Lalu Ram, was issueless. He loved her from the core of his heart and played with her. She also loved him very much. She was brought up in a lovely atmosphere in the house of her father who was a well to do revenue officer in the village. Her sharp features, round mouth, and cheerful face attracted everybody. Her mother taught her cooking and other household chores. She helped her mother in her daily household responsibilities. In fact, her mother’s training made Nanki adept in the household. She had a sweet tongue and was very popular with everybody she came in contact with. She was only five years old when her brother, Nanak, was born in 1469.

He was named after her and people said Nanak of Nanki. She was overjoyed to have a baby companion and started babysitting in the absence of her mother. As Nanak grew, she played with him, took him shopping and looked after his comforts. Right from his childhood, Nanak’s keen mind would not accept all groundless rituals and superstitions. Bebe Nanki was the first who recognized that Nanak was not an ordinary child, but a man of God. She was the first follower of Guru Nanak She stood between Nanak and her parents when they got mad with him and told them to recognize the true worth of Nanak. For her, Nanak was not only her brother (Veer) but also her Guru (Peer). When Nanak went to the river to take bath and did not return for two days, people thought he was drowned in the river, but she said that Nanak had taken birth to save the people and ferry them across this world, he cannot be drowned at all. She was married at the age of eleven in 1475 to Bhai Jai Ram, a revenue officer at Sultanpur under Nawab Dault Khan Lodhi. Early marriage was the custom those days. Five years after her marriage, when she started living with her husband, Nanak felt her separation so much. He did not take interest in worldly affairs and remained busy in meditation. Bebe Nanki was also longing for the company of her brother, Nanak. She prevailed upon her husband to find some job for Nanak at Sultanpur so that she can enjoy his company also. Consequently, Bhai Jai Ram got Nanak employed as storekeeper under the Nawab of Sultanpur in 1485. Thus she played the role of an elder sister to settle in life her younger brother. Now Bebe Nanki and her husband planned to get Nanak married so that he may have his independent life.

They were successful for finding a suitable match, Mata Sulakhni, for Nanak and with the consent of all concerned, the marriage was celebrated in 1487. The marriage party left Sultanpur for Batala, Distt Gurdaspur and came back to Sultanpur. After marriage, Nanak started living separately at Sultanpur. He was provided a big house by his sister. It shows how Bebe Nanki willingly performed the part of an elder sister by helping her younger brother. This tradition of elder brother or sister helping the younger one is part of our culture even today. It also shows the sisterly love that Bebe Nanki cherished for her brother. Guru Nanak also has expressed this type of love in one of his hymns given on page 935 of Guru Granth Sahib wherein he says when brother (soul) departs, sister (body) burns in separation. Bebe Nanki had a very good and cordial relation with her sister in law, Mata Sulakhni, and helped her in bringing up her sons, Sri Chand and Lakhmi Chand. She rather adopted Sri Chand as she herself was issueless. She even looked after her necessities and let her not feel lonely. Once, Sulakhni’s mother interfered and complained to Bebe Nanki that her brother was not keeping his wife happy. Bebe Nanki admonished her and convinced her that there was nothing to grumble. Thus, Nanki was also a great help in the family life of Nanak. . When Nanak got his accounts checked to the satisfaction of everybody, he planned to start on his missionary work to spread his message in the world, she assured him that she will look after his family in his absence and did not discourage him. In fact, the idea of depicting devotion to God in musical notes was due to the inspiration given by Bebe Nanki. She knew the musical talent of her brother and persuaded Mardana to accompany her brother. She also bought him a Rebab (musical instrument with strings) for him. This tradition of recitation of hymns with the help of musical instruments is still prevalent in Sikhism and has played a big role in the preaching of Sikhism. We cannot forget her role in the spread of Sikhism.

She removed all obstacles which hindered Guru Nanak from preaching his mission. When Guru Nanak spent many years in preaching his religion all over the world, Bebe Nanki took care of his parents, wife, and her nephews during Guru Nanak’s absence. This is a good example of our culture how brothers and sisters prove main pillars of help to each other. These values are a part of our culture and credit goes to Bebe Nanki. At the end of his second tour when Guru Nanak returned to Sultanpur, Bebe Nanki was not feeling well and asked him to stay for a few days. She breathed her last in a few days and Guru Nanak performed her funeral rights. She lived at Sultanpur for about forty years. A tree planted by her provides shade to the people still. There is also a well, which she had constructed for the people. Really, everybody can be proud of a sister like Bebe Nanki. She was the first disciple of Guru Nanak and the first one to perceive the holiness in Guru Nanak’s person. There is no doubt that the first Gursikh was none other than Bebe Nanki. Like a wise daughter, she explained the Guru’s mission to her parents and sheltered Guru Nanak from their anger. She treated her brother like God and played an important role in the mission of Guru Nanak. We cannot forget her role in the spread of Sikhism. Contribution of Bebe Nanki in the spread of Sikhism is really unique and praiseworthy. Bebe Nanki’s status in Sikhism can be safely compared to that of Mother Merriam in Christianity and to that of Bibi Khudejai in Islam.

Bibi Amro Ji


the above picture is simply used to add effect to the sakhi, bhul chuck maafi

Bibi Amro was the daughter of Guru Angad Dev ji, the Second Guru. She was born in

1532 in the village of Khadur Sahib, District Amritsar. She received her early

education and training directly from her parents Guru Angad Dev ji and Mata Khivi.

Guru Angad spent a lot of time with his children. He taught them the Gurmukhi script

that he had revised and simplified which is used in Guru Granth Sahib. When she

came of age she was married to Bhai Jasoo son of Manak Chand of Basarke village.

As was the custom of the day she was sent to live with her husband's family. Her

father encouraged her to continue doing kirtan and to preach Sikhism to all that she

came in contact with.

Amar Das who was her husband's uncle was quite taken by her

sweet melodious voice when he heard her singing shabads (holy hymns). It was she

who first introduced him to the teachings of Sikhism. As his interest grew it was she

who sent him to her father to learn more about these teachings. Amar Das was so

deeply influenced by Guru Angad Dev ji that he became a devout Sikhs, so much that

Guru Angad Dev ji announced him as his Successors. Thus Guru Amar Das ji, the

third Guru got to his destiny of becoming a Guru through Bibi Amro ji.

Years laters when Guru Amar Das ji gave structure to the Sikh Nation and organised

his preachers into 22 teaching districts he put Bibi Amro ji in-charge of one of these

districts that he callcd Manji. What Manji meant was that a person who was leading a

Kirtan to be sit on the Manji while whole sangat in front of him.

The person occupying Manji was the Sikh preacher appointed by Guru Amardas. This

appointmcet can best be compared to the position of Bishop in thc Christian Church

today. It was an administrative position, with full responsibility for the equality and

content of the preaching. She also would have the responsibility of collecting

revenues and making decisions for the welfare of her diocese. Her manji or diocese

included Basarke, her husband's village, where they made their home. It is the direct

result of the efforts of Bibi Amro and other Sikh preaches that Amritsar today is

synonomous with Sikhism. Today, close to the village of Basarke, there is a tank

(man made pond) bearing the name Bibi Amro da Talab (Tank of Bibi Amro) in her


from the "Champion of Women" by Alice Basarke.

Bibi Bhani ji


Bibi Bhani was daughter of Guru Amar Das, consort of Guru Ram Das and mother of

Guru Arjan Dev, was born to Mata Mansa Devi on 21 Magh 1591 Bk/19January 1535

at Basarke Gillan, a village near Amritsar. She was married on 18 February 1554 to

Bhai Jetha (later Guru Ram Das), a Sodhi Khatri belonging to Lahore, then in

Goindval rendering voluntary service in the construction of the Baoli Sahib. After

marriage, the couple remained in Goindval serving the Guru. From Goindval Bhai

Jetha was deputed by the Guru to go and establish a habitation (present-day Amritsar)

on a piece of land gifted, according to one version, by Emperor Akbar to Bibi Bhani

at the time of his visit to Guru Amar Das.

Three sons, Prith Chand (1558), Mahadev (1560) and (Guru) Arjan Dev (1563) were

born to her. A popular anecdote mentioned in old chronicles describes how devotedly

Bibi Bhani served her father. One morning, it is said, as Guru Amar Das was absorbed

in meditation, Bibi Bhani noticed that one of the legs of the low wooden seat on

which the Guru sat was about to give way. she at once put forward her hand to

support the stool. As the Guru ended his devotions, he discovered how her hand was

bleeding from the injury it had sustained. He blessed her saying that her progeny

would inherit the guruship. Bibi Bhani died at Goindval on 9 April 1598.

Bibi Bhani was mother of Guru Arjan Dev, the Fifth Guru. Undoubtly Guru Arjan

Dev was brought up as model GurSikh. Guru Arjan Dev was the first Sikh Martyr.

Guru Arjan Dev compiled Adi Granth by collecting all the writings of gurus before

him and installed it at Golden Temple, which is now The Guru Granth. Guru Arjan

Dev completed the construction of Golden Temple.

Mata Gujri Ji

Mata Gujari ji, through upbringing of her grandsons played such an important role in Sikhism that as Sikhs, we can owe our existence to her. It was due to her teachings that 6 year old and 9 year old did not bulge from their Dharma and attained martyrdom


Mata Gujari was the daughter of Bhai lal Chand Subulikka and Bishan Kaur, a pious

couple of Kartarpur, in present-day kapurthala district of the Punjab. Lal Chand had

migrated from his ancestral village, Lakhnaur, in Ambala district, to settle at

Kartarpur where his daughter Gujari was married to (Guru) Tegh Bahadur on 4

February 1633. The betrothal had taken place four years earlier when Tegh Bahadur

had come to Kartarpur in the marriage party of his elder brother, Suraj Mall. Bishan

Kaur, the mother, had been charmed by the handsome face of Tegh Bahadur and she

and her husband pledged the hand of their daughter to him. After the marriage

ceremony, the couple came to reside in Amritsar. Bride Gujari won the appreciation

of everyone "Like bridegroom like bride" records Gurbilas Chhevi patshsahi. "Gujari

is by destiny made worthy of Tegh Bahadur in every way " In 1635, Mata Gujari left

Amritsar with the holy family and went to reside at Kartarpur, in the Sivalik foothills.

After of Guru Hargobind left this world in 1644, she came with her husband and

mother-in-law, Mata Nanaki, to Bakala, now in Amritsar district of the Punjab. There

they lived in peaceful seclusion, Tegh Bahadur spending his days and nights in

meditation and Gujari performing the humble duties of a pious and devoted

housewife. After he was installed Guru in 1664, Guru Tegh Bahadur, accompanied by

Mata Gujari, went on a visit to Amritsar, traveling on to Makhoval, near Kiratpur,

where a new habitation, named Chakk Nanaki (later Anandpur) was founded in the

middle of 1665.

Soon after this, Guru Tegh Bahadur along with his mother, Nanaki, and wife, Gujari,

set out on a long journey to the east Leaving the family at Patna, he traveled on to

Bengal and Assam. At Patna, Mata Gujari gave birth to a son on 22 December 1666.

The child was named Gobind Rai, the illustrious Guru Gobind Singh of later day.

Guru Tegh Bahadur returned to Patna in 1670 for a brief stay before he left for Delhi,

instructing the family to proceed to lakhnaur, now in Haryana.

Mata Gujari, accompanied by the aged Mata Nanaki and young Gobind Rai, reached,

on 13 September 1670, Lakhnaur where she stayed with her brother Mehar chand,

until she was joined by her husband. An old well just outside Lakhnaur village and

reverently called Matta da Khuh or Mata Gujari DA Khuh still commemorates her

visit. From Lakhnaur the family proceeded to Chakk Nanaki where Guru Tegh

Bahadur rejoined them in March 1671 after spending some more time traveling

through the Malva region and meeting sangats. At Chakk Nanaki, 11 July 1675 was a

momentous day when Guru Tegh Bahadur left for Delhi prepared to make the

supreme sacrifice. She showed courage at the time of parting and bore the ultimate

trial with fortitude. Guru Tegh Bahadur was executed in Delhi on 11 November 1675,

and, Guru Cobind Singh then being very young, the responsibility of managing the

affairs at Chakk Nanaki, initially, fell to her. She was assisted in the task by her

younger brother, Kirpal Chand.

When in face of a prolonged siege by hostile hill rajas and Mughal troops Chakk

Nanaki (Anandpur) had to be evacuated by Guru Gobind Singh on the night of 5-6

December 1705, Mata Gujari with her younger grandsons, Zorawar Singh and Fateh

Singh, aged nine and seven year respectively, was separated from the main body

while crossing the rivulet Sarsa. The three of them were led by their servant, Gangu,

to the latter's village, Saheri, near Morinda in present day Ropar district, where he

treacherously betrayed them to the local Muslim officer. Mata Gujari and her

grandsons were arrested on 8 December and confined in Sirhind Fort in what is

referred to in Sikh chronicles as Thanda Burj, the cold tower. As the children were

summoned to appear in court from day to day, the grandmother kept urging them to

remain steadfast in their faith. On 11 December they were ordered to be bricked up

alive in a wall, but, since the masonry crumbled before it covered their heads, they

were executed the following day. Mata Gujari ji were imprisoned on top of a tower

which was opened from all sides without any warm clothes in very cold month of

December. She continued the tradition of Sikhism and without complaints give her

body singing guru ki Bani. Mata Gujari ji attained martyrdom the same day as her

grandsons. No doubt Guru Nanak Dev ji had said "Why isn't woman equal to man

when she is who gave birth to kings, and protectors of Dharma". Mata Gujari ji

through upbringing of her grandsons played such an important role in Sikhism that as

Sikhs, we can owe our existence to her. It was due to her teachings that 6 year old and

9 year old did not bulge from their Dharma and attained martyrdom. Thus continuing

and emphasizing the institute of martyrdom in Sikhism. Seth Todar Mall, a

kindhearted wealthy man of Sirhind, cremated the three dead bodies the next day.

At Fatehgarh Sahib, near Sirhind, there is a shrine called Gurdwara Mata Gujari

(Thanda Burj). This is where Mata Gujari spent the last four days of her life. About

one kilometer to the southeast of it is Gurdwara Joti Sarup, marking the cremation

site. Here, on the ground floor, a small domed pavilion in white marble is dedicated to

Mata Gujari. The Sikhs from far and near come to pay homage to her memory,

especially during a three-day fair held from 1113 Poh, Bikrami dates falling in the last

week of December.

Mata Khivi Ji


Khivi was born in 1506 to Karan Devi17 and Bhai Devi Chand Khatri. Her father was a shopkeeper and moneylender, and was a popular man in the neighbourhood. She inherited all his finest attributes of generosity and congenial spirit. She was married in 1519, when she was 13 years old. Khivi was married to Lahina for 20 years before he became the second Guru of the Sikhs. There is historical evidence that she had 4 children. Dasu, the eldest was born in 1524. Bibi Amro18 was born in 1532, followed by Bibi Anokhi in 1535 and son Datu in 1537. The family was content and doing well. As the wife of one of the town's richest men, Khivi must have enjoyed a great deal of respect. Her life was one of luxury and pleasure. Life would have gone on this way, had it not been for her coming under the influence of Mai Bhirai, who told her about Guru Nanak's teachings. At approximately the same time, Lahina also heard of the Guru through Bhai Jodha, one of Guru Nanak's earliest disciples. Lahina was a seeker of truth, and his curiosity was aroused. In 1532, shortly after the birth of his first daughter Amro, Lahina set out for his annual pilgrimage. On the way, he broke his journey at Kartarpur to see the Guru. On listening to Nanak speak, Lahina begged to be allowed to stay and become his disciple. He had found the truth he had been seeking, and would never again stray away from it. He served his master with the greatest devotion. He busied himself, sweeping the visitor's quarters, washing their clothes and helping with the most menial work in fields. As his knowledge and understanding of the new teachings grew, so did the Guru's affection and approval of his disciple

Lahina was 28 years old at the time, had a wife and two young children. The Guru he had chosen, spoke of the equality of women and advocated a normal family life as the best way to attain salvation. After serving the Guru for some time, he was sent back to Khadur to see his family. His instructions were to take his time and to spend it spreading the word of the new faith to all he met. He did this well, and Guru Nanak was pleased with the reports he heard of him. The reports were so good that Guru Nanak came to his village twice to visit him and to re-inforce his work with his own preaching. Khivi also learnt from her husband, and embraced the new faith wholeheartedly. The women in the village taunted her, saying that her husband was becoming an important holy man, and would, therefore, soon forsake her. She knew she had nothing to worry about, and gave birth to two more children in that period of time.

When Guru Nanak died, Guru Angad felt a great need to prepare himself for the work ahead. Nihali, 20 a devout woman disciple, made her house available to him, while he prayed and meditated for six months. He allowed her to supply him with milk, but otherwise asked to be left alone.

When Lahina became Guru Angad, second Guru of the Sikhs, life became very busy for Khivi. People were now coming to her house to see their Guru. She had always been accustomed to a busy social life, but this was different. There was a purpose to all this coming and going that had not been there before. Moreover, Sikh teaching was very clear that one must earn ones living through one's own labour. Khivi took these teachings very seriously. She took upon herself the onerous task of managing every detail of the langar. Only the best possible ingredients were used, and everyone was treated with utmost courtesy. Her hospitality has been emulated over the centuries and has become the first cultural identity of the Sikhs. She helped the Guru in establishing the infant Sikh community on a stronger footing.21 She has been described as good natured, efficient, beautiful and all round perfect Khivi.22 She has the distinction of being the only one of the Guru•s wives to be mentioned by name in Guru Granth Sahib. There she is described as a "good person", "an affectionate mother" and as "one who provides shelter and protection to others."

Khivi did much more than work in the kitchen. She created a loving atmosphere for all whom she came in contact with. She and Guru Angad were very fond of their children. They lavished their love and affection on not only their own, but on any child in the community. Their commitment was so strong that it gave a beautiful example to all who witnessed it. The Guru took great delight in spending time with the children, teaching them a modified version of the Punjabi script which was easier to learn by the illiterate masses. This new script, which was his invention, soon became known as Gurmukhi script. He is credited in popularising this alphabet, in which the Guru Granth Sahib is written. Each day there was special time set aside first to teach the children and delight in their clever ways. Then they would watch the children at play, and often watch wrestling matches together. From the games, the Guru would draw lessons for his congregation. Guru Angad, with the help of Bhai Bala and other disciples, wrote the first "Life" of Guru Nanak, and this work became the first published prose of the Punjabi language.

Mata Khivi lived for thirty years after her husband's death. She continued to serve the community and remained associated with the Guru's house in all that time. When Guru Angad passed the succession to Guru Amar Das, his son Datu was very disappointed. Encouraged by some of his friends, he tried to declare himself the rightful heir. He took his following and they sang hymns by themselves. Khivi was quite upset. When Datu developed headaches, she was able to persuade him that his responsibility was too much for him. The only way to cure the headache is to go back to the rightful Guru and beg his forgiveness. She took her son back to Guru Amar Das, who on hearing that she was coming, came out to meet her half way. All was forgiven. Datu's headaches disappeared and Sikhism was spared another schism, thanks to Khivi's intervention.24 Khivi continued to manage Guru Amar Das' kitchen. She was proud of her children till the day she died. Her daughter Amro had married Bhai Jasoo of Basarke village. He was the son of Bhai Manak Chand and nephew of Guru Amar Das.25 Bibi Amro had become a preacher of Sikhism, and it is she who transformed the life of Guru Amar Das by introducing him to the teachings she had learnt from her father Guru Angad. Later, when Amar Das organised the teaching of Sikhism into specific districts and jurisdictions, he gave her a Manji, that is, he appointed her head of a diocese. Being appointed to head a Manji would be the equivalent of being a bishop in the Christian Church. She was responsible not only for the quality of the preaching, but also for collecting revenues and making decisions for the welfare of her diocese. Her diocese or Manji included Basarke, her husband's village. Today, close to the modern village of Basarke an old tank (man-made pond) bears the name of Bibi Amro Da Talab (Tank of Bibi Amro) in her memory.

Khivi had the distinction of meeting five Gurus. She lived to the age of 75 and died in the year 1582. Guru Arjun Dev attended her funeral. Her contributions to the Sikh cause can easily be divided into three parts. The first period was the twenty years of marriage before Guru Angad succeeded Guru Nanak. This period was a test not only for Angad, but for her as well. Any decisions he made affected her very much. Her response would also have affected his actions. She never complained, nor did anything to deter him from his objectives. The second period of her life as wife of the Guru was extraordinary in its devotion and dedication to the cause. The third and last period would be after her husband died. She continued to nourish the Sikh community and to work tirelessly for that which she now believed in with all her heart.

She had a long productive life. She worked hard and was loved by all. Her good humour and pleasant personality made a large contribution to the spirit of hospitality, which is now considered an essential trait of Sikh culture. She is quite possibly the first woman of her era who ever worked outside her immediate family home and obligations at a time when her children were very young. She handled both roles admirably well. It is time that Sikhs acknowledge her very important contribution.

    • my biggest tests in life have been since i became a Singh. But trust me brother, the bigger the tests, the more attention our Guru is putting on us. it is upto us to pass these tests and not willow in self pity. 
    • Very true my brother. I personally was dissappointed after he broke his second hunger strike. The first one i remeber the SGPC and/or akothi jathedar did Gubaksh Singh over with fake promises, but remeber he still managed to remind the world of who the bandi singhs were, people like Gurdeep Singh Khera who had even forgotten how to speak punjabi due to being in karnatka prison for so long! second strike, yeah looks like Gubaksh Singh sold out, end of the day he was a man with a family and despite selling out, he was under a lot of pressure (being hungry, kidnapped etc). But yeh not going to lie i did call him gurbax tillah like the majority of us for the past 3/4 years. but got to give the guy credit, hes given his life for the bandi singhs now, whatever your thoughts on him, he has done more than any of us will ever do for the sangaarsh. Seeing his body with his kesh open yesterday is a stark reminder of the nau jawans that were killed during the movement. sad thing is, we as a kaum will continue to cuss him, do his nindiyah, fight with each other, see our so called role models e.g. people like ajnala devote their lives to fighting with people like dhadriawala (sikh on sikh) while others who have given a lot for the kaum the likes of rana, tara, mintoo, jaggi, shera and raman be locked in jail. Waheguru.

    • I think Jagmeet Singh is handling things fairly well given the full onslaught of all media outlets, with veteran pro-india journalists( Terry M ,Terry G, Jonathan Kay…to name a few) having a field day tearing apart their favourite prey and plenty of new comers honing their skills by regurgitating. But that’s what they do. They need an angle to attack us. We give them plenty.  We have over a dozen MPs and a Federal party leader, yet we can barely muster a proper response or show our side of the story in a competent manner. Apart from a few intelligent voices coming from WSO and our British pal Sunny Hundal, there seems to be a complete silence from our so called leaders. This is the time when leadership is needed. Sadly our “leaders” only know to scream and shout at nagar kirtans. If we had 12 competent journalists/reporters from our community, giving the diverse views we hold, it would be of more use than having 12 MPs who are too scared to utter a word. Our kaum needs real introspection of where we invest our energies. Politicians in these western democracies are more akin to mascots and punching bags as opposed to power holders. Look to how other communities are functioning in Canada. For example, the Chinese demographics are far greater and also much more wealthy and successful, yet they stay off the radar pretty  well. They don’t get into the muddy waters of politics. Our community keeps jumping to the forefront politically and then start complaining when the goray lay into us. I hope the best for Jagmeet singh. The road to 2019 elections is going to be very bumpy. Not only will he be facing off against the ignorants, but also the subtle hand of GOI working through its favourite media proxies.
