    A friendly tip veer ji.....when you go to Cali....DO NOT call black people negroes unless you're trying to collect disability or life insurance. Edit: I keep trying to find the right words for this veer ji and it keeps winding up long and rude... Short form is. Dude. You need to focus on you, your behavior is not cool. Put down your poorly constructed politics and pick up Gurbani and Sewa. Driving a prius is not Sewa. Fake news is not Sewa. If you're going to respond to a poster please be respectful. If someone is kind enough to respond to you, be respectful and address their points. Hang in there ji. Further edit: If you feel I've been rude to you, or trolling, I apologize. I will do my best to respect your posts. Please be respectful in your posts, and maybe we can all have better dialogue.
  7. Some more Home Truths

    BhForce: I did when I said the below but you are selective in what you choose to see and hear and that decision is usually based on who shares your love /lust with Hindustan: 'What I did, in what I feel was a very humourous and witty way, was highlight how any Sikh that actually enjoys the shafting India has been giving the Sikhs since 1947 needs to question why he enjoys it. Lets look at some of what he enjoys: 1) 1946 - At the Indian National Congress in Calcutta, as the British told the Sikhs their fate was in their hands, Nehru stood up at the Congress and it is on public record that he promised the Sikhs that if they chose to join India Punjab would be given an autonomous state status replicating the Khalsa Raj of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. That means our predicament under India now is entirely based on a lie. We got shafted. It would take a sick minded sikh to actually enjoy this shafting. 2) Never mind 'replica of the Sikh Kingdom' we were promised....India actually went on to cut Punjab into a further 3 pieces. We got shafted. 3) Massacred in the 60's. Massacred in the 70's. Genocide in the 80's and 90's. We've been shafted. What kind of person enjoys this kind of shafting ? 4) Killing off our mother tongue. Supressing our free speech. Shielding the people that massaced us. We're being shafted. 5) Like the negroes in America, official Indian government statistics show that Sikhs are 3 times more likely to be arrested than a Hindu. Once arrested, Sikhs are 3 times more likely to be charged than a Hindu. Once charged, Indian govt stats show that a Sikh is 3 times more likely to be convicted than a Hindu. Once convicted, a Sikh is 7 times more likely to be hung than a Hindu. And so, they (the pharisees) summoned the man and said unto him "speak up....for we know BhForce is a Gursikh" "Whether or not he is a Gursikh I do not know: the man replied" "All I know is this: for a man that is continuously being shafted to turn around and tell his shafter he still loves her / him........this man is surely morally bent if not physically" You've spent a whole year stalking me from thread to thread calling me the most disgusting of names and never once.....the list of profanities you have called me must run into the thousands. That in itself is not surprising because the Hinduvta Indian nationalists like yourself specialise in that kind of behaviour these days. We see it often at demonstrations outside the Indian High Commission and we see most often on the internet where the mere sight of Sikhs professing the desire to break free from Indian brutality unleashes animal level hatred and rage amongst the Indian fascists. What's surprising in a funny way however, is how BhForce and his selective sight hasn't seen any of it over the course of the last year. But....as always....I fully understand your mental / emotional issues and rather than lower myself to your level of obscenities I understand your weakness and give you links. The stats are from the Indian National Crime Records Bureau and the link below is from the Hindustan Times who tried their best to paint it in the best light as possible but even they couldn't hide the painfull truth: https://www.hindustantimes.com/india/hindus-least-likely-to-be-jailed-sikhs-christians-most-likely/story-Og4PhnhYsPlVLJglKyeOKL.html Aah...the 'power of suggestion'. Plant a thought in people's head, say it often enough and they will begin to believe it. Let me ask you something ? Do you think the Sikhs are stupid ? When you Hinduvta India lovers come here on a Sikh forum to try and spread hate and vindictiveness do you think the Sikhs are so stupid that they cannot see what you are doing ? Do you think the people don't know that I have been chased by a pack of rabid hate filled Indian nationalists for a whole year constantly calling me vile names and each time I've just ignored and carried on with what I like to do, i.e talk about history, philosophy and sociology etc ? You see that's the main difference between a Singh of Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji and the small frightened mice that represent Hinduvta. You fascists hunt in groups like rabid dogs and even after a year of throwing vile insults at me I still stand strong, brush off the attacks from the dogs and stay true to my words. Of all the profanities and insults you Hinduvta Indian nationalists have thrown at me over the course of the past year I have got to say that was probably the lamest. Surely you can do better than that ? I have to say BhForce...and I don't mean to be nasty with this....but you do come across as extremely camp and delicate. So...of the 2,000 or so disgusting and vile insults the Indian fascists have been throwing at me over the course of the last year you're saying you missed every one of them ? Yikes !! A visit to specsavers for you my friend. Now.....I know that I've given valuable insights into our history, our philosophy, our demographics etc etc but, hand on my heart, I'm struggling to find a single interesting thing you have ever said Bhforce. I mean I only remember your name because for so long I thought you were named after british home stores but beyond that there's really nothing at all. Sorry. Yes it does, but you're just not bright enough to understand it. What my sentences said was exactly the same thing that the other EU member states are saying....i.e. that it is delusional to think you can enjoy the benefits of a club whilst not being a member of the club. That's why I used the cake shop analogy. It's not rocket science my friend. Are you 4 years old BhForce ? I really don't think we'll find another person above the age of 4 in this country that Brexit and self-determination go together in the same sentence. Anyway....it seems the Mod was playing a big joke on us all when he said 'no more moderation' on my thread here, which is a real shame because I had great plans to dig up some of my old philosophy blog articles and post them before I go in a few weeks because in recent weeks was working towards tying up the various themes I introduced into a more substantive Stoic piece. Never know though....might get time....fingers crossed.
  8. Hindu decrease in India

    Hinduism is decreasing day by day in India. RSS and Shiv Sena are going crazy. More and more Dalits are leaving Hinduism (many have become Muslims). Only our great Guru Tegh Bahadur saved Dharma and Sanskrit in Hindustan.
  9. India's Guilty Secret

    Yeah. That's like saying America isn't knee deep in racists because Obama was President. Yet made clear in the very next election....and in some way or another every day for the last 400 years....
  10. Some more Home Truths

    My point exactly bhforce. This behvkoof is the worst example of jattism you will ever see. What you're asking for is for him to provide facts or evidence to support ridiculous factually incorrect sensationalist bukwaas. And by doing so in this idiots sick mind you are therefore madly in love with India?? I call out his bukwaas, therefore I must have multiple guest accounts, which the mods have confirmed I don't.... Have you ever seen cruder more idiotic ways of trying to ignore previous bukwaas when caught with your Kachera around your ankles?
  11. Sandhu & Ghotra marriage

    OK jagsaw, see that? Mods confirming that I only post in my name. So we have learned a few things here : 1) I am not gurjant contrary to your behvkoof allegation. 2) neither am I any other guest account 3) that making this allegation you have feebly attempted to distract from numerous people challenging the lack of facts and incorrect bukwaas you incessantly post. 4) that you are in actual fact full of more than your fair share of tutee. Now name the time and place, and aa kay meriyan chittran chat...
  12. So Jagmeet gets married ....

    Maybe I should have been clearer regarding my comment about the wedding being null & void..... the point I was trying to make is that people seem to think that he has committed a big sin by marrying a non amritdhari..... which is not the case.... the forcing of amrit on women comes with the pressure of facial hair & even more recently wearing a dastar.... it was never meant to be that way. From what I can see I do not think the women in all those pics are wearing keski... rather the hair is tied in a high bunga style.... local women around Hazur Sahib still tie their hair up in this way & then wear a chunni on top. If I have hurt or offended the sentiments of ‘amritdhari females’ then I whole heartedly apologise.... that was not my intention.
  13. Some more Home Truths

    Far be it for me to claim I am a Gursikh, defined here (ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਸਿਖੁ ਅਖਾਏ). However, it is extremely puzzling for someone like you, when asked what organized killing of Sikhs is occurring currently, and how it will happen with the naval components Canada might be selling India, you go straight to called me "madly in love with India." Again, I asked what stuff Canada is selling to India. I was unable to find that info, so I asked you. If you have it, provide it. Otherwise, how is India going to kill Sikhs with ship components? If you want to argue that Sikhs are worse off than they otherwise would be if they hadn't joined India, you can make that argument. That is not the same argument as saying India is killing Sikhs with arms that Canada did/will sell India. As I said above, the police killed Sikhs with Lee-Enfield rifles and/or AK-47s. Which of these were sold by Canada?
  14. Some more Home Truths

    BHForce, love is a wonderful thing and one can't help who one passionately loves. You love India truly, madly deeply....I get it. In these passionately love affairs however there is usually one party that is the giver and the other the receiver. So, seeing how you like to take it up the rear from India can I please advise you to insist India wear protection, uses plenty of lubrication and please do ensure you have regular check-ups with your Doctor to ensure there is no lasting anal tissue damage. Quite easy for anybody reading the thread that you chose to address my point in no way whatsoever than to talk about anal sex. If you have a point, make it. The killing at Darbar Sahib in 1984 was organized killing of Sikhs. The "riots" of 1984 were organized killing. Hunting young Sikhs during the subsequent decade was organized killing. My point stands that there is no organized killing of Sikhs (present tense). Aah.....the Brexit vote. The one where illiterate northerners joined hands with bigots and racists into believing they could get in a time machine and go back to a world of bobbies on bicycles, warm beer, red telephone boxes and local shops run by friendly grey haired couples with pink faces. Your response goes on for many, many more sentences, and yet manages to say nothing at all, other than to denigrate whom you believe to be the pro-Brexit voters. One could just as easily tar the Europhiles as Islamophiles, Brittanophobes, and those who (in your favorite analogy), people who love being rammed up the rear by Europe. And that wouldn't be an argument either. So, I ask you again: How is choosing self-determination suicide? Also, if self-determination suicide for Britain, is it also suicide for Punjab?
  15. Some more Home Truths

    On the one hand, I agree that one should simply present an argument, and not accuse people of wanting to be anally violated by the government of India, as Jagsaw accused me of above. Don't worry about me, though, I can take it (didn't mean it like that ). And on the other hand, I think it can be instructive for anybody wading into this unmoderated thread. If, on one side you have someone like Jagsaw who feels it necessary to throw up the dirt of tutti and anuses, and on the other side, I'm merely making a point using arguments and questions, the reader should easily be able to ascertain who doesn't have anything worthwhile to say.
  16. So Jagmeet gets married ....

    What's funny is that the all of the images you posted have an very large protuberation on their heads. Are they from planet Xenu with a non-human head shape? Or did someone knock them on the head with a baseball bat? What, indeed, could it be under their chunnis? Well, a keski. What else is it supposed to be? They're carrying a monster potato on their heads? If you want to go with "the paintings are not accurate", then why did you post them? It takes about 33 milliseconds to take a picture on a smartphone. It takes quite a bit longer to paint on a canvas. Which means that it's unlikely that the painter painted these paintings with these people just standing like statues for him under the hot Indian sun. So perhaps, you'd like to go with "the painter just painted some stuff from memory, and he jumbled a bunch of stuff up". If so, what is it exactly that you wanted to prove? Finally, what's also funny is the first painting you chose to post is a woman wearing blue clothes with what seems to be a keski underneath, another words, bana. Which results in a spectacular own goal for you. Note: I'm not the one who brought the issue of turbans for women up. I'm not even saying keski is a kakkar. All I'm saying is far from disproving keski, your evidence ends up supporting it.
  17. So Jagmeet gets married ....

    Your perspective on feminism is commendable, and I hope you continue to speak out against a malaise which has ruined the West, and is starting to ruin us, too. I have so far been unable to get a straight answer out of @Akalifauj as to why a chunni was not sufficient to cover her hair. If you had limited your comments to refuting @Akalifauj's assertion that she was not properly covering her hair, you'd be golden. But you could not refrain from posting a vile set of comments calling Sikh women who don't commit a bajjer kurehit of removing hair bearded freaks. Note that I am not saying this wedding was void. I have posted, as you can see, that she WAS covering her head. If you have any females in your life (sister, wife, mother), you know that females have a bit of facial hair. However, what you said about women with beards is what one would expect a Muslim to say about Sikh women. It was totally unwarranted, and you should apologize for it. I am not asking you to apologize for your posts on Khanda pahul. That is merely stating your opinion. Talking about women with beards is vile mischaracterization of women in Sikh rehit. Since you chose to go for the jugular, let me ask you if you believe that the Guru's mehils shaved their armpit hair, and if not, if you think it would be appropriate for anybody (Sikh or Muslim) to make fun of either Guru's mehils or Sikh women in general for having "hairy pits"? Yes, I've been there. Question for you: Does the RCC construction air-conditioned room in which pictures are housed date from the turn of the 18th century? The air conditioners, too? Along with the pictures? So sad that you feel the need to cut your nose to spite your face by making fun of the Guru's bana. In relation to women, what exactly is a bana? It's basically a blue kameez without a 1 ft "neckline", along with a matching salwar/pajami. If a woman's top has a huge neckline, front and back, it's called a kameez. If not, and if it's cut a bit loose, people call it a "bana". I'm not saying wearing a kameez is bad. All I'm wondering is where your hatred for "bana" comes from? Does it offend you if a woman isn't showing her cleavage so you can perv on her? As far as "beards", as I stated above, you know quite well that females have a slight amount of facial hair. Not only that, but they have hair on their armpits, and also their arms, forearms, and legs. Those are normal women. A woman having a beard means you have an extreme hormonal imbalance. Your attempt to conflate normal women who don't remove their hair (such as all the women of Sikh history) with the extremely rare woman who has a hormonal imbalance is contemptible, and is in line with conflating Sikh men (or women) who don't undergo circumcision with intersex individuals. Again, something a Muslim might say.
  18. Gurudwara committee

    I own the land and built a gurdwara on it. The sangat choosing is the reason why the previous committee were all sacked. The sangat buy into the lies of the committee and then they don't do anything. They were just manmaati people so I sacked them all and now I need new staff.

  20. I am hardly a sycophant of Jagsaw Singh, a recent example being his vile comments towards me here. But your protestations would have more effect if you would actually quote what you object to, and attempt to refute it, rather than make a nebulous charge of "lying".
  21. India's Guilty Secret

    This is the kind of activism that works in this day and age. Now expect various Indian sympathisers - or paid agents - in the western press to inexplicably push a few anti-Sikh stories into the foreground to counter any potential good this work might do. There's one line that's trotted out whenever there's a conversation of India's mistreatment of Sikhs, and it's, "If India was anti-Sikh, why was a Sikh elected as Prime Minister?" It's a completely reductive argument that conveniently bypasses countless instances in history where a few select ambitious individuals (who lack any wider sense of affinity for the plight of their brethren) from within a "troublesome" minority community are purposefully selected and elevated to key positions in the majority's administration in order to muddy the waters and give the impression to outsiders that there is no systemic discrimination. There were Jews in Germany who collaborated with the Nazis for business reasons and for their own selfish purposes, and that's arguably the most concise and striking example to offer someone who's peddling Indian propaganda about Manmohan Singh. This is before we even get into the argument of the turban not signifying religious adherence, as much as being white doesn't denote a devotion for Christianity.

  23. India's Guilty Secret

    La Noche Triste Pav Singh’s 1984: India’s Guilty Secret and the continuing Sikh night of sorrows. Is catastrophe a precursor to genocide or is genocide a spontaneous outburst of violence- essentially a riot? The misnomer of riot to veil genocide is nowhere more evident than in the Indian state’s treatment of the anti-Sikh pogroms of November 1984. Whereas the political-cum-social discourse of the majority community has condensed the event into the misbranded Delhi Riots, for the survivors they were a well-executed genocide. It is axiomatic that justice delayed is justice denied; Pav Singh in his 1984: India’s Guilty Secrethowever goes a step further- on the basis of the survivors’ accounts which he recounts lucidly- Singh contends that November was by no means a riot. It was the culmination of a long drawn out plan to inflict such wounds on the Sikh psyche that the community would never again agitate for civil rights in the Indian union, and assimilate into the greater neo-Hindu political fold (Hindutva). Radical, in scope, 1984 has swiftly dethroned existing analyses of that apocalyptic November and portends change in the global perception of genocide. 1984, from the onset, does not exercise restraint. It is vivid in it’s recounting of the horrors which the Sikhs faced in the aftermath of Prime Minister Indra Gandhi’s assassination. Whereas the mass rapes of Sikh girls and women have often been downplayed in the works of Khushwant Singh and Nayer, Pav Singh elects to focus on how it was employed as a tool to humiliate Sikh males before they were doused in kerosene and set on fire. His almost calm narration of events is enough to render even the most staunch of readers chilled. A fourteen year old boy is forced to witness the gang-rape of his mother; a whole family is hurled out of their residence to witness their daughters being stripped nude, urinated upon and then raped by hordes of mourners (as consecutive political accounts would refer to the culprits). Sikh males are set alight whereas groups of Sikh women are rounded up and held outside Delhi in a semi-concentration camp where they are continually violated. The myth that only Sikh males were targeted is effortlessly effaced by Pav Singh who dedicates an entire chapter to the sexual atrocities suffered by Sikh women. The attitude of doctors, police, and general society towards the victims of rape are also scrutinized. Elements of all three would be instrumental in evicting victims from aid camps and returning them to their prior locii which, in most cases, would be in ruins. The fortunate would escape; the unfortunate would once again fall into the hands of their violators. Another complex facet, of the November pogroms, which has hitherto been obscured is what happened to the Sikh policemen and military personnel in Delhi? 1984 unabashedly substantiates, based on official documentation, how all Sikh serving personnel in Delhi were ordered to take leave in the early hours of November 1st ’84. Most would have had no idea, other than that Indra Gandhi had been gunned down by her Sikh bodyguard duo the night before, of the inferno which awaited them outside their official precincts. Weaponless, they would have walked straight into effective death traps. Military personnel, serving or otherwise, would have fallen prey to armed mobs on the nation’s railway network. Were Sikhs only targeted at train stops? Pav Singh systematically exposes this canard, again relying on official documentation, to evidence that at least forty-six unauthorized train stops were made which allowed assembled mobs to slay all Sikhs on board. For Sikhs, the primacy of Pav Singh’s work hinges on three crucial factors: 1.) It effectively refutes the misnomer of riot. 2.) Whilst paying tribute to the few brave souls who risked life and limb to save Sikhs, it also depicts the callousness of politicians, police and neighbors who betrayed the Sikhs by rendering them defenseless in the face of bloodthirsty mobs. 3.) It refutes the theory of Delhi Riots. Detailed maps provide evidence of sanguinary pogroms executed in Gujrat, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Assam, West Bengal and Agartala. Candid, impenitent and critical- Pav Singh’s 1984 is radical in it’s approach to the November pogroms. Though sections of the Indian media are criticizing Singh, his work should be judged with impartiality; India’s Guilty Secret not only recounts the atrocities inflicted on the Sikhs, but also exposes the political/social cohesion via which the events of November ’84 transpired. The theory of Nanak Jayanti, an alleged rumor which posits that the pogroms were intended for execution on the birth celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Ji (founder of the Sikh faith) for maximum damage, is also analyzed by Singh. Victim statements are taken into account which depict the conditions outside Punjab in the aftermath of the ill-construed Operation Bluestar. Sikh businesses and residences were often transcribed with a S symbol in the lead-up to November; on the night of 31st October teams were employed to scour several cities in a mission to place this S on all Sikh locations. On the 1st of November the grim significance of this symbol would become transparent as mobs marched on all such identified locations. Nanak Jayanti, caught out by Gandhi’s demise, had been implemented earlier to teach the troublesome Sikhs a bloody lesson. What of the judiciary and the aftermath? Singh, in a brief list, provides an exposition of all the failed commissions which attempted to tackle November ’84 but failed to provide even token justice for the victims. He ends on a poignant note; the survivors of ’84, forgotten by all, are shown as suffering from the trauma of the atrocities inflicted upon them. The state is continually failing in it’s mandate to provide them justice; the social discourse veils their trauma whereas the same ideology which preyed upon them is today gaining ground nationwide. Justice delayed is justice denied, justice denied is justice perverted. https://tisarpanthdotcom.wordpress.com/2018/02/25/la-noche-triste/

  25. Justin Trudeau visit to India

    It seems some Indians see through Ms. Trudeau's act: Maybe it's just salty right-wing Indians?
  26. Bhai Mokham Singh was the exception. Some Hindus are more kanjoos than others. Gujeratis are those type of Hindus. I heard a Hindu Punjabi Brahmin of all people tell a Gujerati how tight his people were. It was quite an.eye opening experience. I think we as Sikhs don't look how non Sikhs see us. I think that these Gujerati Hindus see us intellictually inferior, big and dumb but cannot figure how come these Sikhs make such a great success of themselves if they are so dumb. They think to themselves , " What is it about the Sardar's religion that makes them this way." They see something in us that we don't and it scares them. We are hated by higher caste hindus because in the caste system they are the rentier castes. They feed off the lower castes like a parasite does. We as Sikhs by an large produce and create our own value and distribute it and create more prosperity all round.we operate outside the caste system, it does nothing for us, there is no need for it. We Sikhs have chardikala spirit and therefore we have more energy to take risks. We don't over -think things like a lot of these highly intellectual Hindus who create paralysis by analysis, we just do. And when we create wealth out of it, it gets right up their nose.
