Today I was not allowed to enter the United States Embassy in London because I was wearing Kirpan

We don't have liberty to wear kirpans outside. We can't wear it to theme parks such as Disney land, six flags and neither we can wear in sourthouses etc. US Embassy in Delhi India also does not allow kirpans. We Sikhs without our country has many restrictions to freely enjoy our religious freedom.

I don't think theme parks allow weapons, no matter what. Don't think having Khalistan would change that. Can't expect to go to a foreign country and have them bend over backwards to please you.

So you think Khalistan is meaningless?

Khalistan is the only way we'll be seen as important.

No, my point is that Khalistan probably won't get Disneyland, Six Flags etc to change their policies. Perhaps in court houses etc. But, to me Khalistan is a place where Sikhs can freely practice Sikhi, not for us to go on a roller coaster with a Kirpan on. 

If embassies or courthouses of a foreign nation don't allow Kirpans, don't go or leave your Kirpan when visiting those buildings.

No, bro, I'm not mad. Tell me this: Was or was not the Sikh Channel brought up on charges when it had a discussion about 1984?

I'm not talking about COUNTLESS kathas on pedestrian topics like not cheating or stealing. I said katha about specific sections of Bani. Since I mentioned the word Islamophobic, you should be able to guess the sections I"m talking about.

Your mixing up two different things here.. 

First of all I can't think of any bani that is islamaphobic and how does your comment relate to 1984?

Not sure how much experience you have in corporate world but they do bend all the way down to make profits. Not going into deep but search 'veggie only McDonald' the only kind near darbar sahib. Your whole argument collapse on just one example.

Dear brother, having some degree of inferiority complex and accepts the slavery mentality "oh I came to this country, I should do this or that" should not be the conclusion. If firaanges can come to our house in 1830's and messed up our country, culture and religion and then you say don't do anything that upsets the majority when we go to their land. 🤷🏼‍♂️

There's a MaccyDs near Darbar Sahib? Well that's news to me and I now know the next stop after Darbar Sahib for me :ghost:

Singh ji,

Khalsa are supposed to carry full length Kirpan 3 or 4 foot not 6 inch ones !

What Jathas & organisations preach is a watered down version of Rehat Maryada so it's not just corporates that bend over backwards 😉

Entirely different, government buildings are not corporate buildings, or equivalent. Also backs up my point, corporations/businesses are free to set their own policies eg. weapons allowed or not. 

 

I don't believe myself or Sikhs to be inferior to anyone.

Actions of centuries old governments has no relevance to Canada/USA. UK, perhaps. 

We are allowed to wear our Kirpans etc in public all we want, which is good. But, pushing for us to be allowed to wear them in places that are strictly anti weapons, I don't know..

Provide the rehat maryada that says the kirpan must be 3 or 4 foot long.  Talk is cheap.

Khalsa came into existence during time of conflict so it's common sense that Singh were fully armed "tyar bar tyar".

I respect Indian Singh's who wear Shasters 24/7 & have no interest in travelling abroad n removing them.

You mean there will be a board outside of rides- "anritdharis are not allowed". OR you meant theme parks will be banned from our country. Pretty grim picture either way.

Unless we offer some excellent business; I highly doubt the western theme parks will be opening theme parks in Punjab/Khalistan. Even today in India, there's no Disney World.

No, it's not about discriminating against amritdharis. Most of these theme parks have anti weapon rules, so it applies to ANYONE armed. Its quite simple really.

    • Its not just him. One of the most ridiculous notions peddled by the left is that ALL of the far right are idiots who can't tell the difference. The reality is something completely different. People like Ben Shapiro and Milo Yiannopoulos, both of whom have a respectable number of followers remind people of this whenever there is an attack as the media paints us with the same brush as the terrorists.  Most of the big Right wing "preachers" i guess is an accurate term, know the difference and tend to cite it always.
    • Don't worry about not having a spiritual experience. The main thing is you don't divert from God's name. You don't want to get into ego from experiences either.  All people are not the same, an experience to one person may not be the same as another, however large or small it maybe. We should bear in mind, that we do not recite God's name for experiences, but to think of it as our duty and love towards them. If we start to ask for experiences, then we have forgotten what our goal is.  It is up to Waheguru to grace somebody with an experience. It can happen how much more or less time on one spends on Simran, than another. Do not compare yourself to others, an experience will happen in Waheguru's Hukam, not by anybody saying how or when.  Its good to increase Simran, Gurbani if you wish to and spending more time to devote yourself towards it, will never be incomplete of anything. But we must focus on doing Simran and not expect anything back in return. Just leave that to God to decide.  Say if somebody has an experience, does it necessarily mean it has to be a physical one or that is visible? And then what after that?  Doing Simran, reciting/listening to  Gurbani is an experience in itself. We are here in this world for this experience of having the opportunity to, that is also an experience we should be grateful for. But we forget God is everywhere.  ਤੂੰ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਭਰਿਪੁਰਿ ਲੀਣਾ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਸਰਬ ਸਮਾਣਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ 
      तूं जलि थलि महीअलि भरिपुरि लीणा तूं आपे सरब समाणा ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ 
      Ŧūʼn jal thal mahī▫al bẖaripur līṇā ṯūʼn āpe sarab samāṇā. ||1|| rahā▫o. 
      Thou art fully contained in water, dry land nether and upper regions. Thou Thyself art pervading everywhere. Pause. 
      SGGS ji Ang 731 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji   I understand that you maybe desiring for an experience to feel the presence of God for yourself, but just remind yourself they are everywhere. When we do Simran with love for God, then we'll start to feel the anand (bliss) of it, when God graces us with it.   
    • Apart from the ignorant British attacking a Sikh wearing a turban (which I hear is very rare, I'm Canadian/American btw), I doubt that the British people will target Sikhs. Instead, what they will do is far worse, they will use our history with the Muslims to incite us and basically use us as fodder as they did in their Raj, though this time, it'll be purely against the Muslims. 
    • It is going to be of no use to you to know how much simran to do. You simply have to arrange time for yourself. .. approximately 2 hours 40 minutes everyday. One tenth of your time everyday to Devote to simran. It is a blessing from God if one is able to put in this amount of time.  Pichle janam dhi kamayi counts as well greatly. God has preselected exactly whom he would like to have these experiences.  If you have these experiences, then you have to learn to not spread them about and you will have more. There are many more things that come to pass... we are spiritual beings suffering from separation from our creator. Reconnection is going to occur slowly and understanding these experiences comes slowly too. As you keep your simran up, you are able to obtain great amounts of happiness and peace from it. So forming a habit of simran should be done as a conscious effort.
