Muslim Getting Married In Shepherds Bush Gurdwara This Friday

Recommended Posts

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.

This wont ever stop no matter how much people say it will. We live in a corrupt and greedy world. Plenty of gudwaras still doing mixed marriages in Slough loads of polish and sikh marriages...

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.
