‘Clergy’s decision of pardoning Ram Rahim is painful’

“Though I am under hospitalisation at Mumbai, the decision of the so called Jathedars of letting Gurmeet Ram Rahim from the cardinal sin, have given me extreme shock and pain. At one stroke they have violated all the principles and age old traditions of Sri Akal Takht Sahib for serving their political masters. They have struck at the very roots of Sikh principles which govern the working of Akal... 

Community worried about Sikh girls being exploited by Muslims

This problem of Extremist Muslims captivating and marrying and grooming Sikh girls has been an international problem. This has happened in Australia, Malaysia and United Kingdom as of my knowledge. This has been happening for the last 20 years as i have heard of several cases and heard from extremely distraught and heart-broken parents. The question that we need to ask ourselves as a community is... 

Transparent transfer policy necessary to curb the rot

Of late I have observed that Employees/Officers in Government services do continue to remain and enjoy in the same Office from the joining to superannuation. This anti-people mismanagement not only promotes lethargy and inefficiency but also tends to degenerate productivity and clean services. A person sitting tight over matters for years may hide his own misdemeanor, and indulge into corrupt practices... 

Amritsar – Birmingham flight fine but why via Delhi?

The most profitable route is always the shortest route. Between India and Birmingham in the British Midlands, the most profitable route is Amritsar – Birmingham non-stop. By sending a plane to Amritsar from New Delhi and then coming back to New Delhi to start a non-stop flight is time consuming and fuel wasting exercise. For the betterment of fiscal health of Air India, the non-stop journey must... 

Attempt to tarnish GNDU Amritsar’s image?

We are deeply hurt to read media reports appeared in few newspapers by un-leashing relentless propaganda drive against the GNDU and its Vice-Chancellor at the behest of enemies of the University. Prof. Brar has been blamed for helping Shri P.S. Badal economically in acquiring land for Central Univeristy Bathinda. He has been criticized for vacating a house at Jalandhar belonging to a NRI. In fact Prof.... 

Why Judiciary gets influenced by media trial?

Janab Altamas Kabir, Hon’ble Chief Justice, Supreme Court of India, New Delhi Sir,  Kindly refer to your statement appearing in media raising serious objections as to valuable right of expression of freedom. “It (media trial) can prejudice against an accused in a case,” he said. “The issue should be left to the courts to decide,” the CJI added. Judges should function impartially,... 

“DO NOT HANG YOURSELF”

It is amazing that politicians in Punjab enjoy “hanging” themselves on the walls and electric poles which otherwise is the last “judgment” in the judiciary. This kind of defacing of cities after cities speaks volumes of impotency of the present administration where law seems to have taken the back seat. Aam Aadmi suffers in different offices including ‘Suvidha Kenders’ but the legal and... 

Sikhs marriages are not being registered under Anand Marriage Act

Last week, I went to Registrar, Marriage Registration office in Ludhiana to get my marriage registered under Anand Marriage Act, but concerned official said that their office had received no official orders from the government for separate registration of Sikhs marriages under the newly passed Anand Marriage Act. I wonder, what is the status of Anand Marriage Act and when I would be able to register... 

Indira Gandhi was pre-determined to attack Golden Temple

One thing Kuldip Nayar and Media has always ignored is the fact that Indira Gandhi had already decided and was making plans to attack the Golden Temple as per Lt. Gen. Sinha. Indira Gandhi never wanted to resolve Punjab problem peacefully. There were many meetings with Akali leaders to resolve the problems, and many times it was declared that both sides have reached an agreement. But every time Indira... 

Operation Bluestar memorial – long due!

Lest we forget!  Three simple words that I read every day, when I get out of the metro station to go to my office, which is a block away from where World Trade Center used to be in the heart of New York. 11 years ago on September 11, almost 3000 innocent Americans lost their life to a terrorist attack that shook not only United States of America, but the whole world. The memorial was built immediately... 

Even role models like Saif don’t know how to behave in public!

I feel an important point which is getting missed is how we Indians behave in public. Saif and team were speaking and laughing too loudly and it seems did not reduce their decibel levels even when the other party objected. This shows that even our well bred film stars sometimes do not behave well. It is easy for Saif to say that he has done what a gentleman would have but somewhere he is forgetting... 

Only Badal can do it!

Concerning you story Mirror Scanning your leader: Strengths and weaknesses of CM Badal, I want to put forth my point of view. He is that type of person who will do anything (moral or immoral) to further his political ambitions. One example is enough to justify this. His sub-caste is Dhillon jat. His daughter is married to the grandson of former CM Partap Singh Kairon. Partap Singh Kairon’s sub-caste... 

Get well soon Kapil Mamu

The recent proposal of censoring the online content regarding politicians like Sonia Gandhi, Dr. Manmohan Singh, Pranab Mukherjee etc asks or rather forces us to gulp our views back within ourselves. It is a step that has been taken only to deface the public’s criticism and their anger towards the political figures for say any reason, defamation of their personality or the recent elections... 

FDI good for India?

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in various fields has played a vital role in economical growth and national as well as international developments of India. Depending to its nature (organizational, commercial, technological, managerial and strategic), the concept of FDI should be considered as a devotee to the economical growth of this country during the past years which its impacts can be easily seen...

Kabaddi champs treated worst than defeaters

 The victory that was to bring the glory to the nation rather became ignominious as the Women Kabbadi World Champions witnessed such a disgraceful farewell on Monday. In the nation that was suppose to be proud of the girls bringing the champions trophy to the country defeating other participating nations, what the team got as welcome was rather shameful and improbable. Apart from their prize money... 

Akalis play cheap politics: Dr SS Johl

Ruling Akalis have taken shelter behind the fact that Amitab’s mother belongs to a sikh family and he and other actors invited have taken no money from the government. The important point is that this heritage complex has already been inaugurated once earlier. Then what is the need now to inaugurate again and spend huge money on the function? It is cheap politics, the people must understand. The...

Double standards of LIC

Shame to hear that LIC, which denies insurance cover to a tobacco addict person on account of moral hazards, invests heavenly in Tobacco Companies envisaging their growth. Clearly the State Insurer follows double standards of safeguarding its own interest at the cost of society. It’s just like habitual rapist summoning spirituality and simple living. The vary practice from the elders of a family...
