Harinder Singh NKJ Arrested, Says Accuser

We previously reported abuse of a young man, known only as Gavin, by the Nirvair Khalsa Jatha leader Harinder Singh. A facebook page setup by the alleged victim now claims Harinder Singh has been arrested. Whether he has been charged or not is unknown at this present moment in time. We will keep you posted.

Harinder Singh of NKJ finally breaks his silence

It was to be expected that sooner or later we would hear from Harinder Singh regarding allegations of child abuse against him. In what is a long 44 minute video, a calm and collected Harinder Singh talks about many of the allegations he has been accused of at length. In a nutshell, Harinder Singh is unapologetic over comments he made which he says has been taken out of context and also continues to echo previous NKJ statements to say that the audio recording has been tampered with and edited to twist the perception of the listeners.

Harinder Singh doesn't mention anything of any police case or ongoing investigation. From here on, it is a criminal matter and if Gavin has not gone to the police, then maybe Harinder Singh should. Is this as Harinder Singh says and a case of a psychotic teenager who just wants to bring the jatha down and make NKJ look bad?

We did write down a lot of points during this video and our own thoughts, but we will leave it to you to make your own mind up after having heard both sides. Our biggest gripe against Gavin and the accusers is that all the recordings have not been put up including all video footage and audio recordings. Clips have been put up but they are just telling the story that Gavin wants us to hear... not necessarily the whole truth.

Harinder Singh is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. IF this was a case of Harinder Singh having a few girlfriends or whatever, then it would be something the panth could deal with at a panthic level - because it would not be an illegal crime to have done so. But this is a criminal accusation against Harinder Singh and his response and version of events is very credible. Until he is arrested and found guilty, it seems the parchaar will continue.

The Sikh Modelling Debate

NOTE: We decided to remove this post. Again, we re-iterate it was to get opinions, not to cast judgement or bring anyone down. We have no links to this person so it wasn't personal. See below for the text which will explain the context. This was not removed due to any threats either, as people may begin to think. We can be compassionate from time to time...

-- Original Post --

It seems to be coming more and more mainstream that Gursikhs adorning a turban and a Kirpan are taking to the catwalk. A recent post by this ******* Kaur, a devote Singhni since birth, has caused a bit of a stir, but seems even more so from non-Amrit Dhaaris and non-Turban wearing Sikhs who think it's disrespectful to Sikhi saroop.

This post is NOT to say this is a Sikh "issue", but more so we would like to hear what you think so feel free to comment below. Is this kind of stuff beadbi to Sikh image OR is it a compliment?
