Aman ji

I have seen these videos on other web sites and they are in Punjabi. When I once asked for a short synopsis I was told to go ask Gyani Jarnail Singh Arshi ji for a translation. Since he already has a lot to do, I did not follow through.

Perhaps there is a Gursikh within the SPN community who would take maybe 30 minutes to write a brief summary of each video so the rest of us can come up to speed.

Otherwise -- and forgive my frankness -- it begins to look like yet one more controversy that is relevant only within Punjabi culture; and reminds the rest of us that we are outsiders, not on the inside track. Two kinds of Sikhs: real Sikhs and Sikhs on the fringe.

If that was rude, I seek forgiveness.

I was able to find this one short explanation on the web recently.
Phagwara sees complete Bandh in protest against Kamlesh Ahir

Published on Monday, August 17, 2009 by Azaad Phagwara, Punjab:Several Sikh and Hindu organisations here staged protests and demanded action against an Italy-based NRI writer for her alleged derogatory remarks against Sikh gurus and Hindu gods.


The religious groups also sought an unconditional apology from Kamlesh Ahir, for “hurting the religious sentiments of Sikhs and Hindus”.


Under the banner of General Samaj Manch, Punjab, agitators observed Phagwara Bandh in protest against a CD of Ahir, in which she reportedly detailed against caste discrimination prevailing among Punjabi immigrants in foreign countries recently.


The protesters took out a rally in the city and submitted a memorandum to local Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Amarjit Pal, demanding proscription of the CD and booking Ahir, who belong to Punjab, for outraging religious feelings.


According to this report, not only Sikhs but also Hindus, have been offended by her remarks. And when I read the Indian new coverage of her, I find that half or more of India is angry with her. And she is parading as a Buddhist no less.

On a positive side note... it should give us the motivation to learn Punjabi or at least understand what is being said rather than reading... i will look for a translation on net though :unsure: ... there are more Sikhs who can not read or write punjabi but able to understand it... :) so, you do not sound an outsider... :)

I knew that someone would say that. The problem is that by the time a person learns Punjabi this will no longer be current news.

It takes more than a week or a month to learn Ooura Eeriee Ghaggha and all the other consonants, vowels, vowel carriers, and bindis. :wink: I know because I just completed the first part of the "Sacred Language of the Sikhs" workbook (by eminent :happy: Gurmukhi scholar Charles Shackle) in August. Now I can quickly recognize about 300 words without peeking :cool: as written in Gurmukhi. With no duh duh duh one sound at a time. It took a month.

A person has to learn the alphabet, some vocabulary, and grammar after that. And reading a language is not the same as understanding spoken language:welcome:

:rolleyes: The official language of the forum is English ...;)...So any help for forum members would be most appreciated.

The grammar isn't that hard :shock: but it doesn't happen over night.

Please forgive me.

I love it when the speaker thinks the listeners are stupid. Its blindly obvious she's connecting random things together and trying to suck everyone into it. I would also look into what laws Buddhism gives women in terms of property, divorce and other things.

I like Ambedkar but even Ambedkar did not follow Buddhism as it should have been followed. Nowadays, Ambedkar is just a face for people's agendas. I agree that women's rights should be given and social upliftment should happen but firebrands like these will only hurt the Dalit cause not help it.

I give up on getting these translated though :8-:)

its stupid to translate it. She's connecting weird things together.

Buddha invented martial arts
Buddha brought saffron colour and Gobind Singh merely inherited it
Guru Nanak met some Saints who he learnt everything about Buddhism from and rejected the Janeu.
Buddha met 5 Bhiksus which is why Gobind Singh had 5 panj pyaare
Gobind Singh inherits the buddhist philosophy because he was born in Bihar - This one is particularly funny.
Baba Saheb gave women property rights, divorce rights etc

In short, Sikhism is merely a extension of buddhist philosophy but she says its not all separate, it is part of one thing. So sikhism is not a separate religion.

Egad!!!!!!!!!!!!Well first I thank you for providing the synopsis. But at least now, Aus Desi ji I know what all the controversy is about. Well it does sound ridiculous and she does not put the best face forward for Buddhism (not like that at all).

Seems Buddhists should be protesting for being misrepresented.

So there it is -- Thanks once again!

No Ambedekar Buddhist is following the real buddhism. Ambedkar himself thought things like reincarnation were stupid. However, his view was "If Buddha were alive today he would change his view".

No need for the thanks. Im surprised no one gave this summary already.

Dear Aman Ji ,
Kamlesh Ahir is just one more in the long long list of Dera Babas , Sants who wish to convey to political parties like Congress & BJP (RSS ) that they are available to come to limelight just like Ashutosh , Gurmit Ram rahim , Bhaniarawala , Nirankaris etc by defaming & hitting Sikhs , Sikh Gurus & Sikh ideology . But Sikhs response should be a little different now that 31 years have passed since 1978 . Today internet , TV , Newspaper & countless other media outlets should be the real battlegrounds . Very good response by Prof Sarabjit Singh Dhunda , we need more & more people like him .
