Afghanistan’s marginalized Sikh and Hindu minority has decided to field its candidate for the very first time in the forthcoming parliamentary elections later this month.
Narendra Singh, a young herbal medicine expert, has been nominated by the tiny minority as its candidate for the reserved seat of Wolesi Jirga (lower house).
The Afghan government reserved one seat for the Sikh and Hindu minority in 2016 along with some relaxations of rules.
Speaking to Andadolu Agency, Singh, who is the son of the community’s long-cherished slain leader Avtar Singh – who was one of the many killed in the Jalalabad terrorist attack in Juli-, said one of the biggest problems of Sikhs and Hindus in the country is that there are no dedicated schools where children can learn their own religions and native Punjabi language.

As panthic report reported last week, this is the first time the state of Arizona has renewed their teaching standards in 13 years – these teachings reach over 1 million public students every year
The sikh collation online petition had over 3,000 people nationwide show their support and informed the AZ State Board of Education why teaching Sikhism in public schools is so important.

The Role of Simran in the Classroom – An Educator’s Guide

Mysimran.info is on LinkedIn. Why? To help guide Sikh professionals in placing just as much importance on their spiritual life as their work/career.
Each of our Gurus were not only spiritually advanced, but also contributed to the communities and the society in which they lived. They worked, just like all of us, but were also able to excel in their spiritual life. This is a great example which we can all learn from.
Articles are posted every two weeks to inspire Sikh professionals to keep Simran, Gurbani and Jeevan Jaach on our minds as we all try to excel in our careers.

As Bhai Ranjit Singh Dhandrianwale came to the San Jose gurudwara for his first of three programs on Friday Oct 5th he was welcomed by about 50 protestors that did not want the Diwan to take place. This later attracted 15 police men and woman. The protestors were requesting a sit down conversation with the parcharak from India and they stated that whenever Siri Guru Nanak Dev ji travelled there would always be open shabad vichar or conversation on what Is truth. Dhiandrianwale finished the diwan on Friday night but failed to show up for the scheduled Saturday night and Sunday morning diwan – without any announcements to the sangat. The protestors on Saturday night after Dhiandrianwale went on to say that whereever Dhiandrianwale will have diwans within the vicinity there will be 200-400 singhs demanding open dialogue shabad vichar that will be live-streamed and will not have a time limit. Dhiandrianwale finished the diwan on Friday night but failed to show up for the scheduled Saturday night and Sunday morning diwan – without any announcements to the sangat.

On November 2nd an American Sports Drama Film will be released named, “Tiger” Based on a true story of Pardeep Nagra, a practicing Sikh man who aspires to be a boxer but faces the hurdles of being banned from the sport of boxing due to his religious beliefs.

Stay tuned next week when we interview the boxer himself, Pardeep Nagra.

Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) says it is targeting Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver to join some 100 cities worldwide where Sikhs will be polled in a non-binding referendum as part of a campaign dubbed “Referendum 2020.”

The group, which has branches in New York, Toronto and London, says it’s seeking to use the planned November 2020 referendum to assess the appetite for an independent Khalistan, before presenting its case for a binding referendum to the United Nations.
