It has disturbed me deeply , that someone has removed a page meant to point out that a particular writer of some fame is still telling sardarji jokes in Pakistan's press. As I sit watching, the turmoil going on in Pakistan as the government is fighting the murderers and thieves, that have killed and beheaded people and blown up many hundreds of Pakistanis and driven many Sikhs out of Pakistan and robbed others of their hard earned wealth (reported to be over a USD 100,000 thousand) then sold every thing in their homes and businesses before they blew them up, forcing them to go to Gurdwara Panja Sahib for protection. ( Ah, now my old and forgetful mind makes a connection to a story I have read many times), Depicted I believe on the page of the person who though that my trying to do something against people using others (Sikhs) in their jokes that may hurt others deeply-- was "of no importance".
Nevermind that thousands of young people are currently willing to risk their lives in Iran and dying as Martyrs as they tried peacefully to end the rule that has replaced one tyrant with another. What they are doing seems to me in keeping with the fight that Guru Gobind Sing ji was fighting when he said it was proper to take up the sword to end oppression after trying all other options. If these brave children do take swords in hand they will be mowed down by those with powerfull weapons. Their fight reminds me of the fight the Sikhs were waging in the twenties for the control of their Gurdwaras. Even as they peacefully walked they have been beaten by the Basiji, who are reported to be speaking arabic (probably soldiers of Hamas who the Clerics are using to maintain control of a country whose citizens are fighting the same strain of religious intolerance, that once forced the Sikhs out of Anandpur Sahib.
Sorry that my little fight with words, which pales to what is giong on in the world, was of no importance. Allenwalla 11:15, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Ending Sardarji jokes
I don't know if anyone reading this thinks such jokes should end--I suspect many probably do. So I am writing to the author of the page, letting him know of my objections. If you want to do the same his e-mail is [email protected], which he posts to get comments from his readers. thanks Allenwalla 17:01, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
