Turban ban and restrictions on wearing Sikh religious symbols across the world often make news, but in Australia, a school principal and a teacher tied five-year-old Sikh student's patka (Sikh head covering) after it was accidentally removed by a fellow student.

I can bet with a 99% certainty that teacher and principal were left-wingers / liberals . Right-wingers don't tend to have such values in them

Liberals and conservatives are not how people build values. We build values because of our intuition as people. You can find good liberals and good conservatives aa well as bad liberals and bad conservatives. You seem to have this problem of grouping people together and that's not right. You can even find some Amritdhari a*holes, while finding Atheists who actually want to make the world better.

This might shock you but not everyone is the same. Even within religions people's thoughts and feelings on God can be wait for it....drastically different from the norm. Christianity is a broad term for a whole myriad of beliefs/sects that came or claim to come from Jesus Christ.

    • The more you keep repeating the path the shorter it becomes. Try to do just japji sahib 5 times. You will feel the length has decreased and you are able to do it faster too.
    • katha on the meanings of the path helps you understand what the words mean. This allows you to concentrate better.   
    • Predominantly, yeah. england. By the way, the goreh built roads and trains in Bharat ('India') only to easily distribute the goods that they wanted to loot (this word was, also, looted by them when they were looting South Asia) throughout the continent before shipping all of it back to the uk. They did this only for themselves, so it is not a legacy for the people or country but merely a by-product that was left behind. That wealth included: cotton, textiles and metals, which started the industrial revolution in the 1940's/50's tonnes and tonnes of wheat, rice and grains that left millions upon millions of people starving to death through mass famine countless hundreds of trillions of pounds (~ 600), on which the uk economy has been built today historical Sikh artefacts that were 'forced' to be relinquished and are now kept in museums for profit Ironically, the money that Sikhs and other 'Indians' earn today is what, arguably, belonged to their ancestors. You might already know this but before the empire, Panjab was, apparently, one of, if not, the most literate and well-off places in the world. It had thriving industries created from home-grown materials and some of the mughals were investing some of their wealth too e.g. palaces. Now look at the state of it. The hindus and muslims are to blame for this, too, but the goreh started the trail of destruction, in my eyes. People can do their own research and decide for themselves on how they see them but from my experience, they're nice to your face but cunning behind your back. I'm not just talking about the middle-class elite but the common working-class too. You won't always hear or see them say it because it goes against their preferred method. As far as I'm concerned, they're all the same. According to a recent uk survey, 59% of the uk population are 'proud' of the empire and its colonial rule. I think that says it all.
    • I have a question, these Singhs are probably amritdhari so do they manage to get their paath done whilst in jail?
    • the attack happened on 30 September 2012 Mandeep Singh Sandhu and Dilbag Singh were sentenced to 14 years, Harjit Kaur was jailed for 11 years while Barjinder Singh Sangha received a sentence of 10 years and six months. I don't think they are out of jail @S1ngh source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-25316370
