I should add that if this jatha works for you fair enough, hope they guide you to where you want to be - just not for me and wont be going to any more programmes of theirs

Keen to know the answers to the OP though

To clarify I have no idea who these dudes are. I have no idea if they are real of fake. 

I wouldn't get a jag either, I just can't draw any conclusions from their having an expensive car. 

I will say displays of wealth by a charity are always suspect. Individual charitable people, that's their business.   

I don't think religious iconography really counts. If I had a religion we wouldn't have expensive iconography though either.

Jagsaw has had it in for them since the 'iffy' allegation were brushed under the carpet in 2015...haha!

He may be onto something, but innocent until guilty I suppose, if not on the earthly plane, which is increasingly one of injustice and deception, then the one where the Big Guy upstairs resides.

I really hope he does not bat for the other side, that's the last thing we need a binga parcharak, could lead many astray.

The guradwaras are full to the brim when they come to perform.  People who save their daswand for ages... come to donate I guess.

Even if he does, he's not gonna come out and say it. Well I don't think he would. His days as a kirtani and prachaarak would be over.

In this day and age, if he was smart, he could turn it around and make it work for him. But he'd have to keep his head down and ride out the initial controversy. He'd have to wave goodbye to the mainstream rank and file, though.

Yep, if Rangilas son can make it work in India after his base kartootan and still come out the other side, it could be a walk in the park for him in this country, its more liberal and the mindset of in particular the youth have inevitably been tinged by the rainbow lefties.

    • Monatosingh replied. The rope is strategic in many ways. Out in the wild and need to make weapons, you may need rope. Need to make a little makeshift roof, you need rope. Need to tie anything together for the purpose of surviving, you will always need rope.   Dori also saves the issue of gatra breaking, etc
    • Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Parkash is disputed between 3 Dates Friday, Katak Sudi 15 Pooranmashi, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) Saturday, Vaisakh Sudi 3, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) (Not Pooranmashi) Monday, 1 Vaisakh, 1526 Bikrami (Solar Date) (Pooranmashi) There is debate on this issue, I recommend reading the document mentioned in the OP. Also PLS, Benti for everyone, when referring to Gurpuabs, pls use Bikrami or Mool Nanakshahi (Which are basically Bikrami dates) dates, don't use English dates as they are not accurate as the original. We need more people to start using Desi Months and days, Barah Maha Parro!
    • Serious question though, how would one use a Dori Kirpan practically? Like how would it be used? I think thats why some people say its just for show because maybe you can't use it well? I wouldn't know.
    • Sometimes we use the phrase "Just do it" in the Dojo. Other times we say "Shut up and train".  Heh. 
    • Exactly. Oh, so it's not a made-up saakhi? Even if it were, it would be good. It sounds vaguely like the saakhi of Bhai Banno. I agree that it is unreasonable to demand discounts of shopkeepers because "it's for a religious purpose". They can't verify that. You're trading on your long beard to make the other guy think you're "religious". You're just setting it up for unscrupulous people with beards to come by and abuse it, which then gets found out, and then people lose faith in Sikhs and Sikhi. On the other hand, it would be OK for a gurdwara to put out the call for construction materials, legal services, accounting services, medical services (free medical camps). Then people can verify it's for a religious purpose because they're giving directly to the gurdwara. And then sawmill owners can drop off wood at the gurdwara, marble showroom owners can drop off marble, etc. Or people in fields not in demand can buy the stuff (possibly at cost) and have it delivered to the gurdwara.
