Open question to the Sikh Community worldwide ?

The Sikh players, who were asked by organizers to remove their turbans before their opening match at the Asia Cup Basketball Championship in Wuhan (China) in July, chose to cut their hair prior to boarding the flight to Incheon for the Asian Games on Wednesday. 

Even though, the entire Sikh community from all over the world, backed them, even though, All the big names in the Sikh community openly supported them, Even though FIBA came under the pressure of the Sikh community, and reversed the ban, but the two sikh players, Amritpal singh & Amjyot singh chose the match & not the religion for which Sarbans Dani Guru Gobind Singh ji sacrificed everything. 

My open question to the Sikh Community all over the world : 
Religion or a Foot Ball match : what comes first ?

Security hired to protect Sikh Temple worshipers amid dispute

Armed private security officers have been hired to protect worshippers and keep the peace at the Sikh Temple in Hughson because of rising tensions between two factions that disagree over management of the facility.
An 11-member executive committee charged with managing the financial affairs and operations of the temple was overthrown earlier this month and replaced by 11 other temple members who appointed themselves the interim committee.
During a temple meeting Sept. 7, a dispute ensued between members of the committee and people who soon after formed the takeover committee. The dispute centered around the bylaws of committee elections and the manner in which the elected committee was spending the temple’s money, according to Dupinder Bajaw, a member of the takeover committee.

Footprints: Fear stalks the frontier sikhs

— File photo
The rickshaw chatters through deserted streets, shattering the grey silence curdled over the old city. At six in the morning, only the vendors from villages are here at the Kohati Gate, their pushcarts stacked with spinach. The shutters are still drawn on the pet shops, the birds unaware of the morning’s arrival, their dawn choruses unsung.
A Sikh family stands at the mouth of Jogan Shah Mohalla in Peshawar, waiting for someone or something, their bags a pile on the side. The young man, his face haloed by a black beard, gives me directions to the temple.

Fighting enmity against American Sikhs with art, talks and superhero garb

ALFRED, NEW YORK: Standing before his living-room mirror one morning in August 2001, Vishavjit Singh put his fumbling fingers to the task of wrapping on his turban for the first time in a decade. It slumped to one side. Then the creases were not crisp enough. Finally, he got it right, and headed to his job as a software engineer in suburban New York.

Singh had stopped wearing the turban, an emblem of his Sikh religion, in part because he had not been especially observant while growing up. More deeply, he knew firsthand how that visible symbol marked Sikhs as targets of bigotry, sometimes by Hindu foes in India, sometimes by Americans who assumed anyone in a turban to be Muslim.

 DSGMC President Manjit Singh GK, General Secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa in a Press Conference

Bangla Sahib Gurudwara parking issue turns into political battle

DSGMC release documents of handing over Rs. 100 crore parking-lot of 
Gurdwara Bangla Sahib to NDMC
Would never let portion of Gurdwara passed on to the government, 
says DSGMC president Mr.   Manjit Singh G.K.
New Delhi/23-9-2014
The President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Mr. Manjit Singh G.K. and general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa  today made public, an agreement done by DSGMC in February 10, 2005, by then General Manager under the presidentship of Mr. Paramjit Singh Sarna, by which it passed ownership of Master Tara Singh car parking at Gurdwara Bangla Sahib to New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) after 25 years.
Talking to mediapersons Mr. G.K. said the move as backstabbing the Sikh Panth. Elaborating on the issue Mr. G.K. informed that the parking lot along Gurdwara Bangla Sahib was attached to the Gurdwara in 1970 with the efforts of Jathedar Santokh Singh and it was decided to convert it into parking lot for the convenience of pilgrims. A road that existed on the location was closed down to give way to the parking.
DSGMC president further informed that on January 25, 2001 NDMC chairman Mr. BP Mishra and on July 25, 2002 then Lt. Governor of New Delhi Mr. Vijay Kapoor, had assured then president of SAD-Delhi Mr. Avtar Singh Hit that the building plan of the parking submitted would be cleared.
Mr. G.K. questioned former DSGMC president Mr. Sarna’s compulsion to hand over parking lot to NDMC on February 10, 2005 after 25 years through an agreement prepared by his legal advisor Mr. Harvinder Singh Phoolka.  
Mr. G.K. said the move by Mr. Prahlad Singh Chandok also a former DSGMC president is questionable when he wrote a letter no. 11101/4-3 Dated November 17, 2004 to secretary NDMC for extending lease of parking from 15 to 25 years.  
“It is surprising that Mr. Sarna is writing to NDMC on December 11, 2004, for approval of building plan and two months later he decided to hand over parking lot to NDMC after 25 years,” said Mr. G.K. He further revealed that a day after receiving copy of agreement to be signed with NDMC, from associate of Mr. Phoolka, advocate Mr. Jasmeet Singh on January 20, 2005, Mr. Sarna handed over charge of DSGMC president to Mr. Baldev Singh Rani Bagh on January 21, 2005 through letter no. 696/4-4-D.
Raising questions on Mr. Rani Bagh’s letter no. 1073/4-3 Dated February 4, 2005 to NDMC secretary Mr. UK Vohra as ‘As desired/urgent’ authorizing then General Manager of DSGMC Mr. Sarwan Singh to sign the agreement of transferring parking lot to NDMC. “It was despite that fact that Mr. Rani Bagh was given charge of the DSGMC president for routine works. Why Mr. Sarna has not acted against Mr. Rani Bagh for misusing his powers,” Mr. G.K. further questioned.
Speaking about the terms of the said agreement prepared by Mr. Phoolka at the beshest of Mr. Sarna, DSGMC president Mr. Manjit Singh GK said that section 2 of the agreement gave away ownership rights of the parking lots and a park built over it to NDMC, section 5 talks of transfer of ownership to NDMC after 25 years, section 6 for imposing charges on the parking, section 7 says NDMC can use the parking lot or any other purpose despite expenditure on construction made by DSGMC, section 12 and 14, about maintenance, security, expenditure on electricity, and section 14 has provisions of inscribing logo of NDMC on the entrance of the parking lot despite it being named after Master Tara Singh. “Under what compulsion these terms were agreed the Sikh Sangat must question Mr. Sarna,” asked Mr. G.K.
“Panth Rattan Baba Harbans singh Ji have carried kar Sewa of the parking lot at cost of Rs. 100 crore, collecting portion Sikhs’ earnings, and its handing over to the government has exposed Sarna brothers,” said Mr. G.K. who vowed that he would not let the parking lot passed on to NDMC at any cost.
