350 Sikh Women from history, media, business, charity, human rights etc who have made a significant contribution in their personal, professional or panthic work and are inspirational role models to others & next generation

Recommended Posts

To celebrate the 350th Parkash Utsav of the Tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, during the month of January, the Sikh Network team will be recognising 350 Sikh Women from history, media, business, charity, human rights etc who have made a significant contribution in their personal, professional or panthic work and are inspirational role models to others & next generation. 

The first four or five days will focus on Sikh women in history. One image will be used each day with a small caption along with an alphabetical list of the 11 Sikh women. 

Following the Sikh women in history category the initial focus will be on recognising Sikh women in the UK followed by recognising Sikh women in similar categories in other countries.

Please support this campaign by sharing our posts and posters to raise the contribution of Sikh women in history and modern life.

Before compilation of the list, vetting process should include - "candidates should meet the basic definition of sikh". ^_^

Don't know whose behind this Sikh Network initiative and what's their agenda.

Instead of 350 women it should have been 35 or 50.

They went for Quantity instead of highlighting the Quality !

I do not disagree with you on that.

There are some women I know of personally and they are great sevadhari's, a real asset to the sangat who are on that list.

Then there are others on that I do know of and they are unscrupulous characters and they are not worthy if being on that list.

There are far more worthy women that we do not even know about.

One of things I have noticed is that there are lot more women of Sikh background in the UK media. I call them that because they are not people who I would consider great role models in an industry that creates illusions/maya and lies for it's existence.

There are sections of the UK media in the UK likes to present Sikh men as misogynistic and Sikh women as oppressed. I am now wondering if the over representation of a certain type of women of Sikh background who have personal axes to grind are the problem.

There seems to a definite under-representation of Sikh males in the media unless you are of the bald headed effiminate type.

Just like most Sikh organisations they too seem to have a political agenda.

    • Hun tha viah vi hogea hona? What’s happened OP? 
    • interesting they did use Jas Uthwal in the end : http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/sikh-extremism-rogue-elements-1.4548145
    • then that doesn't qualify as halal ... and it illustrates the lobhi bemaan they are brought up to be when dealing with others especially kufar (their word not mine)
      True life story when I was a teen I used to work for a major cash and carry wholesalers on their tills . We had a neighbouring kebab shop as a regular customer . When certain specials on it was normal for shopkeepers to do bulkbuys  so we were used to seeing that but one day this guy comes to the till with his trolley filled with case upon case of cat food , the other musley who worked there commented on the strange purchase and one asked him do you have a cat ... to which he replied no and then smirked .... So the moral of the story is don't buy doner kebab unless you see them creating the stack of meat yourself
    • I think you are too busy being a first class privileged ish , It is not a small matter to just drop a girl after getting engaged . The sikh attitude is do not enter engagement unless you are deffo getting married because you are playing with the other's family's honour and standing. If you had doubts to clear you should not have done Rokna or Shagun .   Somebody recommends fine, check it out for your self ...a bit like when you are driving and your passenger says 'it's clear to go'  you don't go on their word as you know in an accident you will be held responsible , you make sure it is clear for yourself. I know some folks can be pushy but you are a guy and can easily say stop at an earlier stage ... I don't understand why you didn't it seems bizarre to me . We are living in the 21st century  not the 1800s you can talk on your own with the girl  nobody will object. Anyway water under the bridge and all that .
    • but great foir avoiding shaking hands of scum like Modi , wifey used namaste to avoid shaking hands with the head gunda today, smart kid. Look unlike most political visits they were just relaxed and wore local attire to be comfy I mean suits and all from Canada might look smart but they are probably too stuffy for the temp there. productive - he signed business deals in Gujrat and Agra worth billions unfortunately Punjab missed out because of our CM bufoon
