Don't see the point the point of comments like this.. lets give him credit for risking everything.. whether he makes a u turn or not he's done far more for sangarsh then anyone of us here have/will do.

Veerji

With all due respect I was answering the comments denigrating the leadership of the Sikh Quom who have faced the onslaught of hindutva fanatical forces for thirty years, not thirty hours.

For the record I admire his stance and an grateful for it.

Again with all due respect you have absolutely NO IDEA who I am or what I have or have yet to do in terms if our sanji sangharash.

Please contextualise mentally what and why comments are made before ASSUMING to judge others.

Bhul chuk di khema

What else is left to say???

No you were not answering to any comments . You were just trying to put Shashi Kant down.

We do not "absolutely" have no reason to know who you are.

So please do not blow your own trumpet here.

Next time YOU "contextualise mentally" before you post your comments.

If someone does not know who I am, then they have no business assuming without asking.

How was I blowing my one trumpet (I don't actually own one, so clearly you don't know me)?

Quote my trumpet blowing please.

If I was putting shashi kant down as you suggest I could go further and state alsorts but I didn't because that was not my intention.

This is from my post "For the record I admire his stance and am grateful for it." So you either didn't or couldn't read it properly.

Pretty lame reason for your attack, says more about you then you realise.......

I am really tired of Hindu radical newspaper "the Tribune". This radical Hindu newspaper keep on calling peaceful Sikhs who are protesting against criminal Hindus as "radical Sikhs ". I think, I am going to stop reading this newspaper.

Sikh groups condemn Gurbaksh Singh’s arrest
Sarabjit Pandher

Singh, a follower of Bhindranwale, is seeking the release of five incarcerated militants, who have completed their prison terms

Major religious and political organisations of the Sikh community have condemned the arrest of Gurbaksh Singh from the historic Amb Sahib gurdwara in Mohali on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday. Mr. Singh, on an indefinite fast seeking the release of five militants who have completed their prison terms, claims to be a follower of firebrand militant leader Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, who, according to him, stood for the downtrodden and less-privileged Sikhs.

While representatives of these organisations, who owe allegiance outside the traditional Akali spectrum, have committed themselves to continuing the protest, an official release quoting a Punjab government spokesperson expressed concern over Mr. Singh’s health and urged him to end the fast. The State government said it was helpless as the demands made were outside its jurisdiction. While a fast-unto-death would not solve anything, nothing should be done to disturb the hard-earned atmosphere of peace and communal harmony in the State, the spokesperson noted.

According witnesses and his supporters, Mr. Singh was forcibly picked up by the police, who arrived at the site disguised as pilgrims. He was immediately bundled into a police vehicle and rushed to Mohali civil hospital. Later, he was sent to a jail in Ropar district on the charge of breaching tranquillity of the area.

Major Singh, who has been chronicling the events for the past 23 days, ever since Bhai Gurbaksh Singh started fasting, said that a large posse of police had converged on the shrine and also surrounded the civil hospital. Mr. Singh, he said, resisted every effort to feed him and warned the authorities against attempts to desecrate the ‘ardas’ (prayers) that he had offered before starting the protest.

Gurbaksh Singh, who has received support from various religious and radical Sikh organisations, including the Amritsar and Panch Pardhani factions of the Akali Dal, has been on fast since November 14. He is seeking the release of Lakhvinder Singh, Shamsher Singh and Gurmit Singh — who received life terms for their involvement in the assassination of former Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh and have been in prison since 1995 — and Lal Singh and Gurdip Singh, who have spent 20 and 23 years in Gujarat and Karnataka jails, respectively, after being convicted by TADA courts.

Immediately after the police took Mr. Singh away, five people, later identified as Manjit Kaur, Inderpal Singh, Hardeep Singh, Harpreet Singh and Jaswant Singh, performed ‘ardas’ and began fasting. As the news went viral, representatives of various organisations began turning up and a coordination committee was formed to continue the demonstration. Mr. Singh, meanwhile, sent a message from the jail that he would continue protesting while in custody. After various rounds of discussions, the committee decided that Damandeep Singh, 26, from Haryana would sit on fast in place of Mr. Singh. Damandeep appealed to Sikhs to mobilise support and generate awareness about the issue.

‘Boycott Badals’

Meanwhile, the former Director General of Police for Jails in Punjab, Shashi Kant, called for a complete boycott of Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his family until they did apologised for arresting Mr. Singh. In their effort to appease the BJP, the present State government had actually worked to stop the release of the prisoners though they had completed their sentence, he said.

Where are the real Nihangs? Have they protested to Badal and the Police about this incident. Have they in fact gone to support Gurbaksh Singh. Many Sikhs religious leaders/Groups are still missing from this movement. Maybe they require a Hindu DGP to shame them into showing support.

Read the entire conversation......!

Spent too long on answering ill-thought comments. They're pretty easy to understand, especially Garch Bhaiji. So going to get back to the topic at the head of the screen.

Bhul chuk maaf

Clip from 6th December 2013 Diwaan:



News Update: 11:00pm, 7 December 2013, Mohali - After the arrest of Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa, it was decided by the Sikh organisations that Bhai Damandeep Singh, a Sikh youth from Ludhiana, would continue with the peaceful hunger strike at Gurdwara Amb Sahib whilst Bhai Gurbaksh Singh remains imprisoned in Ropar Jail. Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa Dhadrianwale has visited Bhai Damandeep Singh this evening to show the young Sikh support. Sikhs must continue to display solidarity towards the cause to free Sikh prisoners who continue to languish in Indian jails after the completion of their legal sentences.

    • Changing his viewpoint on Sikhs being vegetarian -   
    • Its not just him. One of the most ridiculous notions peddled by the left is that ALL of the far right are idiots who can't tell the difference. The reality is something completely different. People like Ben Shapiro and Milo Yiannopoulos, both of whom have a respectable number of followers remind people of this whenever there is an attack as the media paints us with the same brush as the terrorists.  Most of the big Right wing "preachers" i guess is an accurate term, know the difference and tend to cite it always.
    • Don't worry about not having a spiritual experience. The main thing is you don't divert from God's name. You don't want to get into ego from experiences either.  All people are not the same, an experience to one person may not be the same as another, however large or small it maybe. We should bear in mind, that we do not recite God's name for experiences, but to think of it as our duty and love towards them. If we start to ask for experiences, then we have forgotten what our goal is.  It is up to Waheguru to grace somebody with an experience. It can happen how much more or less time on one spends on Simran, than another. Do not compare yourself to others, an experience will happen in Waheguru's Hukam, not by anybody saying how or when.  Its good to increase Simran, Gurbani if you wish to and spending more time to devote yourself towards it, will never be incomplete of anything. But we must focus on doing Simran and not expect anything back in return. Just leave that to God to decide.  Say if somebody has an experience, does it necessarily mean it has to be a physical one or that is visible? And then what after that?  Doing Simran, reciting/listening to  Gurbani is an experience in itself. We are here in this world for this experience of having the opportunity to, that is also an experience we should be grateful for. But we forget God is everywhere.  ਤੂੰ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਭਰਿਪੁਰਿ ਲੀਣਾ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਸਰਬ ਸਮਾਣਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ 
      तूं जलि थलि महीअलि भरिपुरि लीणा तूं आपे सरब समाणा ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ 
      Ŧūʼn jal thal mahī▫al bẖaripur līṇā ṯūʼn āpe sarab samāṇā. ||1|| rahā▫o. 
      Thou art fully contained in water, dry land nether and upper regions. Thou Thyself art pervading everywhere. Pause. 
      SGGS ji Ang 731 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji   I understand that you maybe desiring for an experience to feel the presence of God for yourself, but just remind yourself they are everywhere. When we do Simran with love for God, then we'll start to feel the anand (bliss) of it, when God graces us with it.   
    • Apart from the ignorant British attacking a Sikh wearing a turban (which I hear is very rare, I'm Canadian/American btw), I doubt that the British people will target Sikhs. Instead, what they will do is far worse, they will use our history with the Muslims to incite us and basically use us as fodder as they did in their Raj, though this time, it'll be purely against the Muslims. 
    • It is going to be of no use to you to know how much simran to do. You simply have to arrange time for yourself. .. approximately 2 hours 40 minutes everyday. One tenth of your time everyday to Devote to simran. It is a blessing from God if one is able to put in this amount of time.  Pichle janam dhi kamayi counts as well greatly. God has preselected exactly whom he would like to have these experiences.  If you have these experiences, then you have to learn to not spread them about and you will have more. There are many more things that come to pass... we are spiritual beings suffering from separation from our creator. Reconnection is going to occur slowly and understanding these experiences comes slowly too. As you keep your simran up, you are able to obtain great amounts of happiness and peace from it. So forming a habit of simran should be done as a conscious effort.
