Used to travel to DEL before ATQ was up and running. Used to take around 8-9hours by car from Delhi to Jallandar with a couple tabha stops. I think nower days with better roads it takes around 7hours.

Chandigarh airport no idea. Isn't there a flight from Canada to Chandigarh? I duno...

Travel with Qatar quite often. Can not recommend them enough. Stops over at Doha.

Haven't done the delhi - jullundar Road trip  since 2005 and it was 9 hours also done it 1998 in winter 12-14 hours.  Never used delhi airport since 2005 always amritsar.  I see alot of these highways being built so I would imagine if there was one delhi to jullandar it should be quicker than the GT Road route. Reason I ask is because flights from Heathrow to Delhi are cheaper than amritsar,  higher frequency and more choice of airlines.

Not been on Qatar, but an alternative is to Delhi and then plane to Amritsar, Air India, but I didn't like their service going. Coming back was better though.

Delhi airport is better than ATQ though in regards to facilities staff etc.

If you do Delhi to Punjab by GT Road route make sure you stop at Sukhdevs Dhaba, and get some paneer pakoreh! :p

This sounds more appealing,  land 10pm-1am then by road to punjab. 4-5 hours is bearable.

    • There was a similar case of a halal meat factory was going to be opened near a UK gurdwara and eventually legal action was taken and they couldn't open it near the premises. Same thing needs to happen here, not because Sikhs cant eat meat because they can. However the hygiene and bad smell from meat shops does effect the environment. A gurdwara should be a welcoming place for vegetarians and non vegetarians. If rotting meat smells is near the Gurdwara hardly anyone is likely to come to pray, so they can file a case against such a shop being opened next to them. Further more I have also noticed pakistani muslim shops mostly restaurants opening right next to UK gurdwara sahib's. Maybe its a direct policy by zealous muslims to try and undermine non-muslim places of worship or maybe there's nothing sinister about the motives however knowing islam's history with non-muslim communities i chose to believe its often to undermine the other communities.
    • By 0 proof, I meant 0 presented. Not that you had 0. And its not like people have never lied(unfortunately) in front of Guru Granth Sahib Ji, or done much worse.  What lol? My point is we can't just have this fantasy we'll somehow pick/find 5 Singh's who all be completely pure and fix everything. A lot needs to be done before that. 
    • I think American Sikhs need to create a central Sikh body of America's where national security is priority. resolutions can be passed and create protocols so that they can be enforced. So for example defending sangat and Guru Ji would be priority but also preventing such things as stopping the anti-sikh mixed faith anand karaj beadhi that canadian and american sikh gurdwara committee's allow still. Most UK gurdwara's have no started to stop this beadhi insult to their Guru, but they have yet to implement tough security for Guru's ghar as we can see they get robbed by non-sikhs and Guru Ji is attacked. There's a private Sikh security firms in America, one is run by "goray Sikhs" called akal security. Sikhs in the west need to create a security force like this for all gurdwara's and have Sikhs on guard duty on a well paid salary to prevent beadhi and kick out undesirables who cause trouble.  
    • We have a gurdwara here with a meat shop fairly close by, no such smell in or around gurdwara. Maybe your nose is just much more sensitive, but meat shops do not leave the entire neighborhood smelling.  
    • apart from being rude can you please finally answer the question WHAT ABOUT MAI BHAGO JI?  do you deny Dasmesh Pita ji gave her khande di pahul? do you also deny he tied a dastaar on her head? do you deny purataan sakian associated with her? Are you denying the itihaas that says there were female combatants on the battlefields , spies and messengers ? Do you deny the itihaas of women's heads being cut to pass off as sikh teens for a price? (thus they had to be wearing jodey on dasam duar at least) do you denounce the goodness and Honour of all the Bibian such as Harsharan Kaur ji, Mai Bhago ji, Mai Sevan ji, Mata Kaulan ji, The singhnian who were presented to Begums of mughal officials , who were described as being muscular, dressed like men , in armourplate , carrying arms ???
