This is completely untrue as you know.

So please stop these rumours and tell everyone that this is an independent site which is here to spread the true message of the Gurus. We accepts and we will help all other Sikhi sites and organisations so that the name of Sikhi can be spread far and wide.

Sardar ji, tell the girl who made that comment that she does not have the truth behind her words, I have done quite a bit of 'editing' on sikhiwiki and i do not belong to the organization and am not a Sikh. no one has ever stopped my contributions and i have on the contrary often been thanked.
 
 
 
i never expected any reward for my efforts on Sikhiwiki yet after you, i was given a barnstar, as well. So tell her she doesn't know of what she speaks. sikhiwiki may be an effort started by people of the organization you speak of, but if so, no one is pushing anything other than supporting Shiki and the messages and teachings of the 11 Gurus, in my opinion.
 
  
Thanks for your bursts of photography for only through your efforts, obviously supported by the people hosting this site have i been able to see many of the places you can see with your own eyes. regards richard

Our motto is: "Anything is possible! Our joint resources are vast and unlimited." Your tax-deductible gift to SikhiWiki is what will make the SikhiWiki service fast, reliable, and give it the resources needed for continued growth. We are building SikiWiki to last. It is a long-term project - a gathering place for us and our children as well as a legacy to future generations.
