In Sikh/Punjabi culture, when dear relatives and friends visit... we never send them away empty handed

Good idea. The other things that one gets gifted is women's suits that you're never going to have sewn or a man's shirt that's probably the wrong size and colour. Although I do think this is stopping nowadays. Cakes seem to be the new thing now.

I can understand why you can't cook, but it isn't some elite skill that you can't learn yourself. Punjabis have always been giving gifts to each other since pre-Sikh era, they aren't going to stop just because some guy on the internet is saying stupid stuff about Kaurs.

    • Historically they have done some good and some bad for mankind. They colonised huge parts of the world and enslaved many Africans. Wiped out the natives in America and Australian aboriginals. On the other hand they built roads, irrigation and railways in India.
    • Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh   Suppose that someday I decide to take Amrit. Some of the K's are "easy" to maintain, while others might prove problematic. I'm currently studying to become a nurse, but do not know what my eventual setting will be. If I wind up working in surgery, having an untrimmed beard may not only be prohibited, but dangerous. Are there special dispensations for such things? Do any of you know of individuals who have dealt with such issues? Would it preclude me from taking Amrit? Similarly, what's the legal process like for changing one's name?
    • I assume you live in a White country.
    • Exactly. One example is Tommy Robinson, a 'former' white supremacist, and Holly Henderson, a 'former' prostitute/escort girl. They showed sympathy for Sikhs when Muslims targeted girls from our community for decades but when the same happened to white girls then they suddenly develop an interest, fear and hatred of Islam. They have began to associate themselves with organisations like Sikh Youth UK and have the cheek to use our history of martyrs to support their argument and gain a bigger voice against Islam. I think they are,also, using Sikhs to appear tolerant and appreciative of foreigners who are non-Muslim and against Islam just to incite Islamophobia, as you rightly say. The goreh always have and will always be the masters of covert grooming. History tells us about their sly methods so that cannot be doubted by anyone. Unfortunately, most of our community are blind to this and only see the overt/physical grooming by muslims. They have allowed the white devil to succeed in achieving their main purpose against Sikhs which was to weaken the psyche and relationship of Sikhs with Guru Sahib ji. Despite leaving Panjab more than 70 years ago, they are still winning and we are still losing.
