lol. No, again its a case of people in India not understanding the English language as well as they think (no matter how highly educated they are). For example, see how they refer to the genocide and massacre of 1984 as a 'riot'.

So, they use the word 'Burger' freely throughout India and Punjab without understanding the fact that the word itself is defined as a slab of meat in between 2 breads. They just need educating that they need to add the word 'Vege' in front of it if they wish to refer to something vegetarian.

the riot thing is lack of backbone , call it a state sponsored (wasn't just congressi ) genocide ....

but doh , I feel silly but really is this what it's come down to appealing to swad ras to get Gurbani in ?? seems very low level to pitch at ... :blush2:

These days even India has the big corporations there with their halal burgers etc. I mean MaccieDs, Burger King is big business out there now so those who say 'burger' will automatically be understood to be veggie one in India , hmm not convinced .

Plus it you notice in the picture Mr Singh alludes to MacCDonalds through use of the arches logo ...

anyway how many burgers did they give away ?

If they're vegetarian burgers - which I have no reason to believe they are not, it's a good initiative. I don't know why people do kintu parantoo on every little thing it gets very exhausting.

Good for them.

Kaurss verr/bharn, ehna hate nahi rakhi di. Kehan nu assi keh sakday that indian sikhs are not sikhs as they not even able to change a single line from govt docs which says that sikhs are hindus and so much can be said here and there.

Dosri gall, evaain raula paya ethay sariyaan neh. Kaurss is right though..

In india, burger = bun tikki. Not sure if u grew up in punjab but majority of burger stands (rehri walay) are vegetarians.

Mr.singh burger is jatha wala amritdhari singh- spending a min on his fb timline will gives you the idea.

Please people. Please understand why among south Asians we Sikhs have a stereotype of being uneducated. Its because we have a reputation of being afraid of knowledge and intellect. The whole world and his dog knows that in Punjab they mean vegetarian when they say the word 'Burger'. That much is obvious and if you bothered to actually read this thread before posting you'll see that was established from the very 3rd message. You're making yourself look extremely silly by revising that same old fact again and again and, like simpletons, ignoring the hard fact of what the word 'Burger' (on its own) means. Every word in the English language has a meaning. You can't just willy nilly alter the meaning of a word and then be proud of this nonsensical stupidity. Well you can if you wish, and you 'Indians' opbviously do, but to then bury your head in the sand and pretend you don't hear what the word is actually defined as is not very clever.

The word 'Burger' on its own refers to MEAT.....by very definition. If one wants to refer to something vegetarian than that someone needs to add the word 'veggie' in front of the word 'burger'. Its common sense.

Mr Singh from that Burger stall, and you lot, could decide that you all want to call vegetarian things 'Chicken and Lamb'. And then when someone points it out to you you'll use the same arrgument you're using here and say "well when we say chicken and lamb everyone in Punjab knows we mean vegetrian food.....So we're gonna carry on saying it".

Now while that statement might be true its also incredibly stupid.

    • OK, I'm with you there, as that's also what I stated. This is where I get off. I am intensely uncomfortable with forced conversions. If that's our policy, what's the difference between us and the Muslims? What's the point of Sikhism anyway, then? Also, there is quite a difference between saying X happened vs. saying that X is official Sikh policy. A lot of people come on to this site to learn about Sikhism, including young cultural Sikhs. If they read that we support doing the exact same thing as Muslims, I think they will definitely think, "Why should I become a strong Sikh?" So that's the reason I'm portraying the sack of Sirhind as having been done by the followers-on, not as a official Sikh policy. 
    • I dont know about that but why some people on here found it hard to comprehend about what I stated about muslims were forced to convert to Sikhi is true according to what I have read and understood of the times and circumstances people lived in back in the 17th century. Forced conversions was what islamic rulers were doing to non-muslim populations in order to spread islam and take over faster and banda's men were merely returning the favor by forcing them to revert....it was karma. There is no doubt in my mind many cowardly muslims would rather have converted to Sikhi to save their lives than be massacred along with everyone else by banda's men and the other irregulars who had swelled his ranks looking for revenge and war booty. In those war like conditions and situations back then conversions weren't spiritual or by choice they are often forced to save ones own life.
    • Right, this just confirms what I stated: that there were loads of people who attached themselves to the invading army for the purpose of loot or revenge. BTW, even if you were quoting/reading Sikh historians, there are plenty of Islamophilic Sikh academicians whose histories are based (in the end) on Muslim sources, which would naturally play up the level of mayhem, bloodshed, and pillage, and also place the blame solely and squarely on the Sikh faith. Case in point: Dr. Fauja Singh, relying on Muslim sources, actually portrayed the execution of Guru Teg Bhadur Ji as just because the Guru was a brigand! Sirdar Kapur Singh, using authentic sources including Bachittar Natak, forced him to recant.
    • 1) I didn't say he was hindu all his life. I said he was from rajput hindu stock as he was born a hindu the operative word is "was" he converted to Sikhi while in the company of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. I didnt make this claim of soul saving your making this claim. I said muslims converted to Sikhi to save their lives from banda's brutal warriors and some muslims converted out of opportunism in plunder of war booty of rival mughul towns and some converted to sikhi because they were forced to convert to islam by the mughuls. The conversions of muslims to Sikhi wasn't to save their souls in theological spiritual terms it was a practical political demographics war tactic to ensure Sikh numbers grew and enemy muslim numbers decreased.  
    • Banda Singh Bahadur wasn't Hindu, (unless you believe Sikhs are Hindus like the Indian constitution claims). There were more Ksychatrias and Brahmin Sikhs percentage-wise then there is now, because of Banda Singh Bahadur taking the time to free those inside Punjab from their faiths. Also if he was so interested in saving people's souls like you claim, why did Sri Mata Sundri Ji not support him? Or Baba Deep Singh Ji for that matter? After all that, the Bandai Khalsas were formed and revered Banda Singh Bahadur, with Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji not given enough importance. If people did convert to Sikhi it wasn't because some king living in the jungles of Punjab, (because that's exactly where he lived, not out in the open), it would be because the Sikhs especially within Punjab did heavy Prachar. As great as his kingdom was, it was mostly skirmishes with the Mughals with only one real battle, (Sirhind/Fatehgarh Sahib).
