This must not be allowed to go ahead. This is a direct contradiction to akal takht rules.

See attached invitation that someone messaged me. Friday 1st may at 9:30 am

I am some what pretty disappointed that Londons oldest Gurudwara which has always asked for the people's support would allow this. They are usually quite Panthic and allow Sikh students to hold events there as well. Maybe someone who has contact with the committee can ask them in the most nicest way what is going on!

Unless he has converted to Sikhism this is in direct contradiction to Shri Guru's Gobind Singh Ji's Hukam.

"Do not given a daughter's hand in marriage to a shaven one. Give her to a household where the Undying divine personification Akal purakh and tenets of Sikhism are respected, to household without debt, of a pleasing nature, which is disciplined and educated".

Then there is the Akal Takhts rules and regulations on who can and can't get married in a Gurdwara in the presence of the Shri Guru Granth Sahib.

The question I would like to ask is what are the girl's parent's, siblings, extended family and friends thinking?

Has anyone actually contacted the Gurdwara?

Don't be silly , why contact the Gurdwara when we have the internet to jump to conclusions, also, on a side note, where did that picture of the card come from, is there some special website where these things are shared.

Theyve chosen friday i bet, because thats a unusual day to get married on, in uk for sikhs and so they dont get "thugs" interruptin the ceremony. Cannot believe this can go ahead tbh. Though, we dont kno, but he may have become a sikh and changed his name to singh, who knows. Report to sikh council maybe? They did release a statement sayin anand karajs r only for sikhs n mix religion marriages at gurdwaras r illegal n wont b tolerated.

Polish is a nationality not a religion: Not Every Sikh is a Punjabi and Not Every Punjabi is a Sikh!

So if a muslim pakistani guy and a sikh girl gets married, its different from a polish Christian women getting married to a sikh man. Cmon, fix up... they are both void marriages, both parties are in the wrong. If they want both guys and girls from our community should get married in a registry office.

A Polish Christian will have no agenda in converting the girl to gain paradise and have access to 72 virgins in the after life.

Contacted the gurdwara. The wedding is not happening,as it has been cancelled. Mission accaccomplished.

The questions are:

Why did the Gurdwara commitee take the booking in the first place, when they know that this is violation of maryada.

Have they really cancelled the wedding ? Where is the proof ? Are they lying to play down the issue.

If the general sangat didn't find out, I.e: by the card being sent to people on the internet, the Gurdwara would have gone ahead with the wedding.

Outcome ? The committee of Sheperds bush Gurdwara are greedy and corrupt, only interested in generating money rather than satkar and maryada.

They should be reported to the main Sikh bodies and Sikh channels to ask the committee to explain their actions.

Understand family who made booking withheld groom's name. When Gurdwara found out cancelled. Groom was Somali Muslim. We can not blame Gurdwara if information is withheld.

    • Heretic or a Turk. Both are repulsive. The heretic is an internal threat where as the Turk is external. Whether or not he's insulted the Gurus (as of yet), is not the issue. It's the fact that he's Turk-Beeraj.
    • I do not believe in an absolute morality, dharam is not the same for each and every individual. This is not to say that dharam does not exist, only that it doesn't exist in a monolithic form.  This concept is reflected very well in the life of the Mahapurakh Sant Baba Thakur Singh, 14th jathedar of Damdami Taksaal. Babaji was a strict vegetarian like all members of Taksaal, so for him eating meat was a great sin. However when he visited the chaunis (encampments) of Nihang Singhs around Chowk Mehta he would often bring offerings of goats to be jhatkaa'd by the nihangs and later consumed. Because eating meat was not a great paap for them as it was for babaji, rather it was their tradition and he respected that the role they were given by the Almighty was different from his own.  Satguru's Hukam affects each person differently.  Eastern dharams tend not to impose moral codes on the whole of humankind, as though such codes apply to everybody. Yes there are certain basic guiding principles of human morality - don't murder, don't rape, but most sane people don't really need to be told not to do these things by a religion because they feel an inherent revulsion towards them. However beyond this things can get quite flexible. Some people are meant to be householders and provide for a family, whilst others are meant to be celibates and devote their lives and all their energy to Akaal Purakh and Seva of the Panth. If God creates someone with the intention that they will become a warrior, battle becomes dharam for this person, a righteous deed. If however God creates a man and by his hukam determines that this man is to be peaceful saint, battle is adharam for him, not righteous. This is why different sampardas/jathebandiaan exist in Sikhi. Guru Ji is not/was not anti-samparda or anti-jathebandi, if they were, they wouldn't have created or blessed so many of them themselves. I don't know if what I'm saying is right, but this is the conclusion I have arrived at from my study of Sikhi. Others will have arrived at different conclusions, and good thing too -  Sikhi is a garden full of many diverse flowers.  I do not believe Guru Ji aspired to make all Sikhs, or all people,  identical in their religious outlook and practice. 
    • So you think that Sikhs and Muslims need to remain bitter enemies for as long as this world exists?   And because of 84 do we also need to become eternal enemies of the Hindus forever and ever?   Yesterday Hindus were our friends but they ended up knifing us in the back. And Yesterday's enemies can become strategic allies of today. Try to see the bigger picture.
