In Pictures


  1. Real Sikhs died in 80s and 90s to build us a homeland. We are all cowards and disgrace to Sikhism. We have to live in this pain forever.
    More than half the population is drug and alcohol addicts, Jats have the evil grasps of Sri Akal Takht Sahib and Punjab Poltics in their hands.
    Sikh boys are going bald every day and Sikh girls are eloping with Pakis in so called love Jihad (whose fault is it in the first place), going to clubs and looking for angels.
    People come to Gurudwara to indulge themselves in gossip and tryinhg hard to become next Gurudwara President to siphon Guru Golak.
    Which brothers are you calling for?

  2. Sikhs have not learned anything! No “house” no respect, others will control your destiny. Will get hammered left, right and centre.
    Wake up brothers. Thirty years and we seems to have forgotten 1984.
    Nobody owes anyone a living, and we will not get anything on a platter.
    This “acts” will not cease until we have ownership to a piece of “land” called homeland.
    Otherwise we will be reduced to being vagabonds, easy prey for anyone.

  3. Gurcharan Singh

    The news media is reporting incorrectly.NO SIKHS were killed.One MUSLIM and one Hindu Punjabi was killed.The identity of the alledged 3rd dead is unknown as yet.

  4. I am depressed that 2 Sikh brethren died. Muslims in that area planned the attack. They killed 2 Sikhs in cold blood. Israel took 1000 for losing 3. My blood is fuming. Enough of this Muslim torture. Wake up, we are fighters. I still haven’t forgotten 84.
