Missionaries Infiltrating Uk Sikh Organisations

Recommended Posts

This following was posted on a heretic site singhsabhacanada. *Some elements* of Akhand kirtani jatha has been controversial on its stand towards bani of Dasam pita.

Now they are supporting missionaries brigade on a phoney seminar under leadership

of panthpreet. None of them have any academic credentials for becoming expert on calendarical

science.

AKJ tapoban (senior gurmukhs like kulbir singh, balpreet singh - member of canada sikh body and senior gurmukhs of AKJ) should be made head of all AKJ affairs abroad it appears not only AKJ UK is supporting missionaries but they are also "radicalizing" innocent sikh youths on facebook. Nevertheless, any jatha or samparda (regardless of how popular or panthic it is or claim to be) if they are radicalizing sikh youths or promoting radical approach/fascism among sikh diaspora should be investigated both internally by sikh bodies and legal bodies.

i knew this calendar would be bad news for the Panth. Ever since it has been introduced it has done nothing positive for the panth buty has created further divisions. There was no crisis that needed such a calendar to to solve it.

Best thing it to get rid. A-Sap.

Is there a site I can read about the Bikrami callender and how it works. I have been unable to find a detailed article about the Bikrami calender.

As for AKJ UK, they seems to be on a different level than their North American counter parts who are opposed to missionaries/kala afghanists.

All just government agencies working together to cause divide in our panth and to undermine puratan traditions. I think AKJ UK got bigger problems to deal with after that video of 1 of their members having sexual activity with 2 men on camera was spread around the whole world. Maybe if they read charitropakyan bani from Sri Guru Dasam Granth Sahib Ji they would not commit such acts.

Also add to that veer , follow sri guru gobind singh maharaj's baaz nature which maharaj tried to tell us both physically and symbolically...Baaz/eagle have 360 view of the whole world not confined by any road block- anything, compare to frog who confines its vision of world to its- pond/tunnel.

I read the following thread a long time ago and would recommend it to anyone who wants a detailed veechar on both calendars. Bhai Kulbir Singh's comments are spot on I think:

When the Sardar Purewal's Nanakshahi calendar came out, I was in full support of it and all these years, I have been supporting it but couple of years ago, since the SGPC revised this Nanakshahi calendar, I have been reading and researching the calendars and the outcome has been as follows:

1. The only deficiency that I can find in the Bikrami calendar is that it's 22 minutes longer than the current more accurate solar calendar. This results in a day's difference after 72 years or so. If the Bikrami calendar is inaccurate by 22 minutes, then the scholars should sit together and adjust this calendar by 22 minutes, as they had done in 1964, when they adjusted the length of this calendar by few minutes. The solution to the 22 minute time difference is not adopting a totally new calendar. This problem can be solved by adjusting the length of the Bikrami Calendar.

2. The argument that sometimes the Bikrami calendar Gurpurab dates result in Siri Guru Gobind Singh jee's Gurpurab appearing two times in a single English calendar and sometimes not appearing at all does not hold too much ground because it's not fair to judge the Bikrami calendar by the standards of the current solar calendar. It's like comparing oranges and apples. The fair comparison would be to compare 3 years of Bikrami calendar with 3 years of solar calendar to see if the number of Gurpurabs in each calendar are equal or not. To compare it every year is not a fair comparison because the Bikrami calendar adjusts itself to the solar calendar every 3 years.

3. I am extremely impressed by the wisdom of the Indian scholars who came up with this hybrid solar-lunar calendar – the Bikrami calendar more than 2000 years ago. This calendar so diligently keeps both solar and lunar considerations in one calendar. When a Gurpurab is celebrated, it keeps in view the positions of the nature e.g. the position of moon, weather etc. In a pure lunar calendar, they may be able to keep the position of the moon but they can't keep the position of weather but in this calendar you can have both positions – weather and moon. Spiritually it makes no difference what the position of the moon is or what the weather is but if we want to celebrate Kattak-Pooranmashi Gurpurab of Siri Guru Nanak Dev jee as per the Bikrami calendar, then we can relate to the account listed in our Janamsakhis about the natural conditions at that time. With other calendars, this is not possible.

4. The newly adjusted SGPC calendar is a disaster. Some Gurpurab dates are as per the Bikrami calendar and some as per Sardar Purewal jee's Nanakshahi calendar. Either they should have left the original Nanakshahi calendar as is or they should have adopted back the Bikrami calendar.

5. Having said that, I think more important than any calendar is the unity of Panth. Nanakshahi calendar divided the Panth because all segments within the Panth were not taken into confidence when implementing this calendar. The original Bikrami calendar should been left rather than adopting the new one and causing a severe disunity in Panth. Now too, they should scrap the new adjusted SGPC Nanakshahi calendar and adopt the Bikrami calendar. Disunity should not be allowed at any cost. The issue of calendar is not a maryada issue or some spiritual issue. Then what was the need to make this change originally and cause such disunity in the Panth?

Some of my Gursikh friends will be shocked to read what I have written above because all these years, I have been a staunch supporter of the Nanakshahi calendar but in the light of more knowledge, contemplation on this issue and considering the unity factor in the Panth, I have reached the conclusion, written above.

Bhul chuk dee Muaafi jee.

Daas,
Kulbir Singh

That is a good point made. The calendar issue is not a dharmik or maryadha issue. Kala Afghanists/missionaries trying to make it into a matter of Sikh Dharm is ridiculous to say the least. Unity of the Panth is more important than any new calender. Instead of Kala Afghanists/missionaries holding conferences on this calender issue causing disunity, wouldn't it be better if they hold conferences about the issue of youth apostasy (patitpuna) problem in the Panth today? or female infanticide problem? these are more pressing issues than some calendar.

I don't agree with those people saying our calender has nothing to do with maryada or spirituality. As someone has said the Prakash of Guru Nanak Dev Ji took place on the pooranmashi of khatak, therefore this date changes every year and is determined by the position of the moon. Many people will dismiss this but Baba Nand Singh Ji gave the sangat a viddi that is spiritual in nature and can only be performed on the pooranmashi of khatak.

The changing of the month on sangrand also has an impact on our spirituality as highlighted in bara maha. These are all dates that are dependant on the movement of the moon and cannot be set in stone or judged by the movement of the sun. Vaisakhi is based on this as well. Holla mohalla is always celebrated a day after holi according to puratan maryada, holi is set according to movement of the moon.

And the most important thing of all is that mahraj themselves used bikrami calender in bani. The nanakshai calender should be scrapped, all the puratan samparda of nihangs, nirmala, udasi and sevepanthis and these groups respected branches such as taksal, nanaksar, rara sahib, harkowal and others all still use bikrami calender to the best of my knowledge. It's only SGPC, missionaries and other man made jathas that use the nanakshahi calender.

Pal Singh Purewal was a factory worker and had no knowledge about science of calendars.

He imposed a flawed calendar on sikhs.Sikh leadership was stupid to accept it. No religion

in the world follow solar calendar but purewal gave us solar calendar which is a copy of

calendar followed by Indian Govt calendar.

Moreover his calendar starting date is sometime 500 years after birth of Guru Nanak dev ji.

Pl see the views of calendar expert Col nishan in these videos

Calendar issue is just another tool. The root of the problem is Jatha vs. Jatha.

However, i am not sure but i think the pr looks like a fake one? Their website is not online.

The poster is not fake. It is real and is being touted by missionaries all around. Akj.org website is becoming

defunct.That is what happens when wrong people take control of affairs.

It seems shocking !

considering some of the oldest AKJ UK members where the ones who educated the youth on dasam granth and charitropakhyaan

they really don't realise that the same people they are supporting are supporting the people who are saying jaap sahib isn't bani which would render their Amrit non-existent.

one of the main families that was doing parchaar against the akj uk members who beleive in dasam granth and stopping people from doing kirtan - well one *deleted*

now if that isn't enough to prove that charitropakhyaan is a valid and true representation and social commentary of sexuality in modern kalyug then i dont know what will open their eyes and make them look outside the window and see how much sexual deviency, rape, grooming and abuse is going on around them.

I wish the praatan akjs were still alive they would not be happy.

    • it's my fault, i should have phrased things a bit better. Basically based on the data he gathered same sex couples are more likely to settle into a routine and are less likely to do things out of said routine (such as cheating, which according to the data he gathered was surprisingly low compared to straight couples). By similar attributes I mean people like them in terms of personality and taste. In straight couples you can usually note a sort of polarity in the way they behave and their personalities.  Again this is based on one study, nothing official or on a large scale really.

    • 5 Cancer Fighting Foods Backed By Scientific Research by Anthony Gucciardi When we talk about the idea of taking back control in your life, it is absolutely essential that we talk about one of life's most important fundamentals: your health. The truth is, you most certainly can eat your way to optimum health – and it can actually be a very enjoyable (and delicious) experience. Here's 5 cancer fighting foods that are backed by scientific research to start adding into your daily optimum health routine: 1. Tea Enjoying a cup of tea is anything but a chore, and the reality is that plant-based teas can offer some very significant anti-cancer properties. Tea contains a family of natural compounds known as flavonoids, which are the phytonutrients responsible for the beautiful colors we see in fruits and vegetables. But in addition to playing a role in the vivid colorization of produce, flavonoids are also known for their powerful antioxidant effects. In particular, a flavonoid in tea called kaempferol has been pegged to help in the fight against cancer. According to an expansive Harvard University study that studied more than 66,000 women, participants who consumed more kaempferol were found to have the lowest rates of ovarian cancer. 2. Brussels Sprouts Brussels sprouts are the new kale, with various brussels-based recipes and preparation ideas popping up on social media almost daily. This happens to be a very beneficial trend, as eating brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower) can be an excellent choice in the fight against cancer and your journey towards optimum health. What's interesting about the research here is that scientists were able to identify some inspiring protective properties against both prostate and colon cancers with the consumption of cruciferous vegetables, but the substances required to produce the results may only be released during the cutting or chewing of the vegetables. One study, as reported by WebMD, found that: “In mice grafted with human prostate tumors and then treated with one of these cancer-killing substances, tumors began to shrink to half their size after 31 days.“ The promising results may have to do with the enzyme phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), which is found naturally in cruciferous vegetables. Other studies have examined the antioxidant called sulforaphane, which is also released when you chew up cruciferous vegetables. 3. Turmeric If you haven't already started spicing up your meals with turmeric, now is the time to start. As a member of the ginger family, the turmeric plant has been used in both Indian cuisine and ancient schools of medicine for thousands of years. Now, quite some time later, researchers and nutritionists are finally getting excited about what turmeric can do. One such study that gained recent notoriety in the news cycle focused on the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin (turmeric's active ingredient) on the body. Published in the Journal of Clinical & Cellular Immunology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston found that curcumin exhibited anti-inflammatory capabilities that could help in the fight against cancer and most other disease. "Most diseases are caused by chronic inflammation that persists over long periods of time," wrote biochemist Bharat B. Aggarwal, PhD, from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. 4. Black Raspberries Yet another great tasting option, berries have been shown to help in the fight against one of America's most deadly conditions. In particular, black raspberries may be the best bet. It has been found that black raspberries contain a significant amount of phytochemicals known as anthocyanins, which could help to halt or slow the development of premalignant cells. One professor of internal medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine has even authored a book titled “Berries and Cancer Prevention” which details all of the ways in which berries wage war against cancer growth. 5. Vitamin D Not a 'food' per se, but vitamin D is such a uniquely important anti-cancer agent that it is a must-have in your arsenal against cancer. The research here is pretty clear, and even the National Cancer Institute has a lengthy page dedicated to vitamin D and its effects. In research surrounding cancer cells and tumors in mice, vitamin D was discovered to potentially slow or prevent the onset of cancer, inhibit cancer cell growth, reduce tumor vessel formation, and more. Addition pieces of literature focused on the association between vitamin D levels and death rates for some cancers. Participants living in areas with a higher amount of sunlight exposure were found to have lower rates of these cancers, which researchers stated could be due to the difference in vitamin D levels. Taking control of your health is more than just important, it's essential to living the life that you deserve to create for yourself. Adding these foods and others into your daily routine can be a step in the right direction towards securing your optimum state of health.
