UK Sikh Societies should organise similar events to muster Sangat.

Especially during Gurdwara Elections :p

I think the Southall Singh Sabha election was at a time when uni sikh societies would have minimal influence. OR you mean uk sikh societies in general outside unis?

I think UK uni societies need to use their resources, and could start doing basics of sikhi style parchar as well as a host of other stuff. Like in West London, where a lot of the sikhs at these unis don't attend the uk sikh societies. However these students skills could get involved in sikhi by making videos, using web design, programming and graphics media skills. It get's them experience and exposure for when they would join the workplace as well as getting them some sikhi knowledge, as otherwise they would probably not go to sikh society meetings or events.

I meant societies in general but it would be best if BOSS organised such an event.

Earlier GGSSC was targeting school kids for their course but now it's open to all ages.

I never trusted BOSS 100%, I felt racism from them, and even anti-nihang sentiments.

Guru Gobind Singh Study Circle (Canada)

Gurmat Crash Courses are organised by them.

BOSS have been around since 1992

As long as they are secular ie don't promote one Jatha it should be okay.

    • No offense, but ... who cares? It's not like this was the finals or a world championship.
    • It's one thing to cluster in a given area to have enough people to make congregation able to support a temple, church, etc. But what we're talking about is the aggressive tactics used to rid an area of non-Muslims. The percentage of Chinese in Chinatowns is very high. But non-Chinese people are not usually afraid of visiting Chinatown. They are not no-go areas where they bully, ban, and kill non-Chinese people, in the way that a Swedish reporter who was working to de-mystify no-go zones was shot ... in a no-go zone, thereby proving the point.
    • Yeah, I think that's true. Maybe that wouldn't be a problem if the elites were ever actually right about anything. It's the elites that decided they wanted to start subsidizing illegitimacy by paying money to women who have children outside of wedlock. If they have a husband who is earning, that counts against their welfare benefits. Surprise, surprise, you get women mating with multiple men not their husbands. It's the elites that decided to start the war against Iraq, a country that never invaded or even threatened the US. It's the elites that decided they want to teach children in 3rd grade in a way that encourages them to want to engage in extra-marital sex. And it's the elites that decided to import millions of fake Syrian refugees without even a vote (most don't even claim to be from that country, most of the ones who claim to be aren't). And so on.
    • Yes, good point. I think this is the reason Guru Sahib granted us the Rehit. The Rehit keeps us tough. We're meant to engage in sword-play and ride horses, and the rest of the Nihang lifestyle. But we've become weak. Sikhs ask, "Why do we have to have a kirpan if there's no war on. And if there's a criminal, we can just call 911, 100, or 999 on our iPhone?" It's people like that which lead to ridiculous stuff like Sweden giving housing benefits to returning Jihadis instead of throwing them in the slammer.
    • Well, I find it quite interesting that you have people (including Sant Dhadrianwale's retinue and possibly including NKJ) who support Dhadrianwale for years. Presumably they support the stuff that Sant Dhadrianwale preached at that time, like Naam Simran. Now, suddenly, he turns around and basically says Naam Simran is manmat. And his followers don't abandon him, they cling even tighter to him. So they can't claim to be supporters of a philosophy (Gurmat). Rather, they were and are supporters of a man. When the man flips, they flip too: ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਛਡਿ ਕੈ ਮਨਮੁਖ ਹੋਇ ਬੰਦੇ ਦਾ ਬੰਦਾ। Manmukh, the mind-orientated, leaving away the true Guru Lord becomes slave of man. ਹੁਕਮੀ ਬੰਦਾ ਹੋਇ ਕੈ ਨਿਤ ਉਠਿ ਜਾਇ ਸਲਾਮੁ ਕਰੰਦਾ। Becoming errand boy of man he goes daily to salute him. ਆਠ ਪਹਰ ਹਥ ਜੋੜਿ ਕੈ ਹੋਇ ਹਜੂਰੀ ਖੜਾ ਰਹੰਦਾ। All the twenty four hours (eight pahars) with folded hands he stands before his master. ਨੀਦ ਨ ਭੁਖ ਨ ਸੁਖ ਤਿਸੁ ਸੂਲੀ ਚੜ੍ਹਿਆ ਰਹੈ ਡਰੰਦਾ। Sleep, hunger and pleasure he does not have and remains so scared as if he has been sacrificed. ਪਾਣੀ ਪਾਲਾ ਧੁਪ ਛਾਉ ਸਿਰ ਉਤੈ ਝਲਿ ਦੁਖ ਸਹੰਦਾ। Throughout rains, cold, sunlight, shade, he undergoes myriad sufferings. ਆਤਸ ਬਾਜੀ ਸਾਰੁ ਵੇਖਿ ਰਣ ਵਿਚਿ ਘਾਇਲੁ ਹੋਇ ਮਰੰਦਾ। In the battlefield (of life) this same person, considering sparks of iron as fireworks gets mortally wounded. ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਵਿਣੁ ਜੂਨਿ ਭਵੰਦਾ ॥੪॥ Without the (shelter of) perfect Guru, he wanders through the species. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧੫ ਪਉੜੀ ੪  Bhai Gurdas Varaan 15:4
