OK, bro. If you want to call them idiots, that's fine by me. In fact I would use even harsher language against Baljeet Singh of New York. At exactly the time the Canadian media is working overtime to portray us as extremists and terrorists, he goes and shoots up some non-violent fool of a granthi, thereby doing the anti-Sikh media's work for it.
I dread the media coverage that is going to follow his trial, and what sort of defense he is going to mount. If he says "I was defending my religion", non-Sikhs will naturally want to learn more about this religion in their midst which encourages its followers to kill those who stray from the path, thereby creating new opponents of Sikhs.
Great job, Baljeet Singh! Not.
In absolute world -everything is fine and dandy and relative world, sometimes people need jolt. I love my village in punjab so not anti village-especially gurbani hymns during amrit vela and dhud wali cha and poranthai. so i apologize- but it abhoring hard work done by media savvvy sikhs and sikhs mps gets ruined by these idiots.
Great thread, thanks for posting this.
Salient points from this thread: The masands were punished not merely for stealing and such, but for such acts as rape and attacks on Guru Sahib. Secondly, masands who committed forgivable crimes were forgiven and told to sin no more. Finally, good masands were commended.
So the example of masands in no way provides precedent for killing mere heretics.
Very good point. Sant Dhadrianwale's star has gone up, not down after his attempted assassination, a huge loss for anyone who opposes his current agenda (such as I).
By the way, Tara Singh Hayer was editor of the Indo-Canadian Times, not Des-Pardes, AFAIK.
After an otherwise commendable post, you ruin it with this. After about 5000 posts banging on about the universality of Ik Onkar, permeating all, non-dualism, and so forth, you are unable to resist a cheap shot dividing us/humanity?
About half of countries like the US is rural. Exactly half of Punjab is rural/half is urban.
What makes you think that village=bad, city=good?
Please don't say "Oh, I don't mean village as in rural, I meant it as in idi-ot". First of all, if you meant id-iot, then say that.
Second, do you think it would be acceptable to say "So wake up from a Negro mentality" or "So wake up from a Choora mentality"? If not, why do you think it is acceptable to say "village mentality"?
Perhaps you should reread your past posts sanctimoniously lecturing everybody about non-dualism.
Yeah, it should. Much better to post specific examples of what you think is "the truth" than to just generally abuse the whole discussion board of being deluded.
Oh, and by the way, I agree that there are way too many chemicals in drinking water, no matter if you live in the UK, US, or India. And plastics should be avoided to the extent possible. Puratan Sikhs did not use plastic, of course.
See, I'm not as deceived as you thought.
