2018-06-23 00:02:33 -0500 commented answer Who will help the Afgani Sikhs?

Why are you looking for Sikh women from Pakistan? What is your intention?

2018-06-23 00:00:09 -0500 edited answer Who will help the Afgani Sikhs?

Respected MataJi, yes you are right outsiders are not allowed to visit Azad Kashmir. Couple of years back, I had been to Pakistan but I was refused entry into Pak occupied Kashmir.

The moment our Sikh Jatha landed at the Lahore airport, Pakistani officials received us, garlanded us and they started speaking in eloquent Punjabi. We Sikhs get flattered when we hear Muslims speaking in Punjabi, we easily trust them, so was i. Apart from Lahore, we did visit Rawalpindi, and Hassan Abdal in Punjab there was no issue but when our group was leaving for Nankana Sahib, men from the Pakistani Intelligence came to us and questioned us, Why are you guys sitting silent in India? They said, why don’t you fight for a separate country, you must fight holy war against Hindus, and Christians. They told us Muslims are the brothers of Sikhs and Hindus and Christians are the enemies of the Sikhs.

Then we were told to burn India’s flag, to raise anti-Hindu, anti-Hinduism slogans. They had kept the video cameras ready so that they can film us. When I protested and said as to why shall I raise slogans against my own countrymen, they said you are not a true Sardar.

They said, each year hundreds of Sikh pilgrims visit Pakistan and they all willingly burn the Indian flags and have no qualms in raising anti-Hindu slogans, you are the first Sikh not to raise the voice against India, Hindus, and Hinduism. They even told me don’t visit Pakistan anymore, we won’t grant you the visa.

These Muslims actually try to create the rift between Sikhs, Hindus, and other non-Islamic faiths. In Youtube these stupids have uploaded lots of videos in which Muslims are seen sympathizing with the Sikhs and Hindus are depicted as Monsters. We Sikhs must be vigilant against the nefarious activities of these Muslims.

2018-06-06 01:33:29 -0500 asked a question What is Parma?

In the news section of the Sikhnet, there is a beautiful video of Singh Sahib talking about Sadhana. He says, sometimes, you have Karma of a previous life and sometimes you have Parma of this life.

  1. Now, what does Parma mean?

  2. My second question is not related to above but coming out of curiosity. Apart from English and Spanish, which other languages are spoken in the Espanola Ashram?

2018-06-01 08:48:53 -0500 asked a question What is Kar Sewa?

Why any sort of Sewa done in any Gurdwara known as Kar Sewa?

2018-06-01 02:39:26 -0500 answered a question Correcting Akhand Paath Mistakes

Committing errors during Akhand Paath is a big mistake. You can bring it to the notice of the Gurdwara Granthi or the Head of the Gurdwara Management. Seeing all this, hearing it and then remaining silent also means that you too committing mistake. Stern action must be taken against Aunty Ji.

2018-06-01 02:18:43 -0500 commented answer Sikh Prayer: ARDAS

But interestingly, Rehat Maryada is silent on this. If i am not wrong, all these lines are not mentioned in the Rehat.

2018-06-01 02:15:58 -0500 commented answer Sikh Prayer: ARDAS

In Gurdwara Bangla Sahib and at other Gurdwaras the procedure is like this: 1. Tu Thaakur Tum Peh Ardas (first these lines are sung) 2. Ardas is done 3. Agya bhai Akal ki tabhi chalayo Panth (these lines are sung) 4. Theekar fore dilees sir (then these lines are sung) 5. Hukamnama

2018-06-01 02:11:06 -0500 commented answer Sikh Prayer: ARDAS

I have heard both the lines being sung at almost all the Gurdwaras in Delhi as well as NCR. For example, at the Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, the house of Bala Pritam Ji there too the lines Tegh Bahadur Si Kriya are sung on a daily basis.

2018-04-22 02:30:39 -0500 asked a question Sikh Prayer: ARDAS

The lines which are recited before the Ardas, Tu Thaakur Tum Peh Ardas, Jeeo Pind Sabh Tayree Raas..................... Are these lines part of the Ardas or is it optional as one need not necessarily recite it. What does the Rehat says on this?

Also these lines, Theekar fore dilees sir, Prabh par kiyo payan, Tegh Bahadur si kriya, Kari na kinhoo aan. Are these lines also part of the Ardas. If not, then what are these lines known as and why only in selective Gurdwaras these above lines are recited.

O. K you are not an Amritdhari. So you need not worry. You are not a bad Sikh. You are just a 14 year old kid, God bless you.

"where there is love there is no question". This might be true but it's next to impossible to follow on this theory.

2018-03-26 04:26:31 -0500 answered a question What are requirements for Amrit as a female?

I really appreciate your words, "I need some commitment".

The requirements for a female to get baptized is almost the same as those required for males.

  1. You need to wear all the 5 K's including Kirpan.

  2. Pure Vegetarian, yes so.

  3. No physical intimacy outside marriage.

  4. An Amridhari or a baptized Sikh is not supposed to trim, wax, shave or dye the bodily hairs from head to toe.

  5. The head must be covered at all times but for females they can either wear a turban or cover it with a Chunni.

2018-03-26 04:06:36 -0500 answered a question feeling abused

When the stage comes in life when you don't find answers to your own questions, the best alternative left at that moment is doing an Ardas, sincere Ardas. That's it. Akal Purakh himself guides us.

2018-03-26 04:01:16 -0500 answered a question how do you describe energy or empaths in Punjabi?

There is no such term.

2017-10-27 01:57:10 -0500 asked a question Bowing before Nishan Sahib?

In Gurdwara we bow before Guru Granth Sahib Ji but if someone bows before Nishan Sahib too, then is it right as per the Rehat ?

2017-10-19 03:18:47 -0500 answered a question What's the difference between hinduism, Buddhism and sikhism?

All the three Dharmic faiths which you mentioned above do believe in after life incarnation unlike Abrahamic faiths which believes in Judgement day.

2017-10-13 00:02:13 -0500 commented question Is there any records about the genocide and the deaths of Sikhs

i even messaged and mailed to Khalsa Aid asking them as to why instead of helping poor Sikhs living in Islamic nations they are helping Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh, they replied me back saying, Musalman Sadde Pra Ne. Sadda Farz banda wa Musalmana di madad karna.

2017-10-12 23:52:52 -0500 commented question Is there any records about the genocide and the deaths of Sikhs

i have moved from pillar to post & met all the top Sikh leaders of the SGPC and DSGMC requesting them with folded hands to please help Sikhs living in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other Muslim countries but they have remained mute and are not willing to offer any help.

2017-10-12 07:40:32 -0500 answered a question Is there any records about the genocide and the deaths of Sikhs

Must watch videos: Sikhs brutally attacked and killed in Afghanistan but the Sikh community today is busy helping the Rohingya Muslim refugees in Bangladesh.
