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?

She's an aspiring model. She wants to do it as a profession, it's not for any charity event or shaadi.com lol

The pose is very slutty - it's a seductive-type pose. However, I have nothing against her pursuing modeling. As long as one doesn't get caught up in ego, vanity and the things that detach us from Gurbani, then that's fine. But it is very difficult not get caught up in that maya. She's a very beautiful girl though.

Someone needs to ask harnaam kaur from london wat the sketch is really. Posing half naked on her insta and fb. Fondling herself whilst singing and wearing a dastaar. She dusnt take kindly to any one askin her questions someone just needs to sit down with her and ask her wats going on. And if she wants to do that stuff then that up to her right but whats bugging me is she does all this while still looking like a singhnee. Confused.com

Harnaam Kaur is a freak. And not because of her kesh, not at all. When I first met her I thought it was amazing. But her photos of putting on lipstick, going all gothic with tattoos all over and styling her hair like a witch has just turned her into the freak she is today. #PlotLost

Why are we always so quick to comment (myself included). Why do we all turn on one another in an instant? This is a sad state of affairs. Its one thing letting the public know about potnetial allegation but to question someone's career choice? has that got anything to do with us. It is her choice and if she can maintain her Sikhi in this crazy world and still pursue her career good on her. Guys, we need to take a step back and look at ourselves.

I think she has a split personality disorder, something a lot of people are suffering with these days.
You hear about this kind of stuff all the time...granthi reading baani 1 minute & watching porn the next.
How can she justify what she's doing when she's in this sikhi saroop, what kind of message is she sending out to young Singhnia??
Seems like she's using her 5k's as a fashion accessory (that's if she's wearing them all, 1 might be missing under those tight shorts)
After doing a sexy photoshoot does she put her religious head back on & go home to do her Rehraas???

There is one thing we all should make note of our gurus told us to live a normal life and a spiritual life. They told us to sacrifice out worldly doings to become spiritual. If she wants to pursue modeling as a career choice then it's fine as long as she doesn't do anything that is a kurehat. The maryada (of any jathebandi) does'nt say you are not allowed to do modeling so I don't find it wrong.

Not surprised...her father had a lot to say in the past about the way his gatka students dressed...saying their clothing was inappropriate (there was nothing wrong with it) he also said he would never let his daughter dress with skirts etc when she was older...mr harjinder singh...what went wrong....u reap what u sow...u tried to break families in the past...now go sort out Ur own child

Lol she dresses like this daily to uni. Extremely tight clothing and showing too much skin. Funniest is I've realised she removes her hair on her arm. I saw her arm at a divan where there was hair then few weeks later at another divan it was gone. Explanation? Hair removal. Also her obsessions with a Singh led her to come to Southall. Despite him not giving a shit

Shut up you brave man behind a keyboard. she ain't amritdhari

Anonymous said...

Shes a yound girl whos thinks its ok to do this sort of stuff wear tight kapray, wear make up. If your a normal person its fine do as you please noone will stop you however she wears a dastar amrit dhari or not people will reconise shes a sikh what imagine is she sending out? Obv doing such poses you become a sex image to the opposite gender. Its kaljug and no singhni should even want to do modeling and put herself out there! Dhan were those singhnia who gave their lifes for the panth! If she wishes to carry on she should take her dastar off and do it!

Hello I saw her arms a few weeks ago then recently the hair was gone , rem why did you attend the divan was it to look at girls ? It seems as though thats why you go and clearly what your saying . If she's made a mistake then fine and why do you want to make things up ? what has happened is clear as I know her as well we are encouraging her to seek legal advice and have been to Police yesterday , this needs to stop its a personal mistake not a Panthic one and it it needs to STOP. She sit;; someone's daughter she's hurt nobody and wants this ended. It didn't help that AmritDhari Sikhs said she was ok to do it and now found herself in this position. And if she hurts herself for whoever reason , The family will hold this site responsible, I can ask family to send crime No. if you wish, or are going to carry on hurting her?

Nothing new here, i have heard other things about this girl, that cant even be written here, lets just say shes no virgin Kaur, lol Her life at uni is where shes someone else and out with her Gatka team and her father shes someone else, Shame, the family she belongs to will be disappointed too. Time for her father to put them silly swords down and his salty eye shit and look at giving his daughter some lessons on dressing like an amritdhari, or to give her the freedom she wants, and let her carry on, where no one will point fingers at all other Sikhs and Amritdharis.

Stop making stuff up as waiting for official court order and then you'll see I think Sikhs enjoy hurt people, wow true Sikhi Faria Bureh Dha Bhalla Kar= Bhagat Faris says do good even those who are in wrong. So who on here is being Sikh like? Guru Nanak wouldn't be proud of this girl , so you think saying slut and this and that , then saying she is no virgin , did you think that up when you done Nitnem well if you do nitnem . It's happened to my daughter and I contacted this family , this girl is on the verge of breaking , if she kills herself You will be blame , Admin STOP THIS IS GONE FAR ENOUGH HOW DO YOU SLEEP , WELL THIS FAMILY CAN'T !!!! PROUD?

By the way your a weak coward , put name to comments , or you scared ?

1) Harnaam no longer considers herself a Sikh.
2) Anything that needs to be said to someone should be said with love. The kind of judgemental comments above only serve to push girls further away from Sikhi, as we've seen time and time again.

Is this post supposed to be a personal attack for people to hide behind their keyboard and talk absolute gandh about an individual or is it about the actual issue of girls and guys who are modelling?
This post is ridiculous, its just a bunch of sikhs bitching, for everyone to see out in the open. Cant believe such a post is even allowed to be posted where youve just defamed one individual for a problem that goes on all over the world, why not go screenshot everyone else's pictures aswell? Singh Street Style does modelling on a daily basis with girls checking Singhs dressed like girls out, why is that not blogged about?
I dont even know this girl, but this is a form of cyber bullying and i will find her and get a cyber bullying report filed against this post and hopefully they will find the her who posted this in the first place.
Instead of sitting this girl down speaking to her look how quick everyones jumped on board of the bitching train.
I dont need to put myself as anonymous because im not afraid to express my opinion.
I advise this post to be taken down before matters are taken into the laws hands for
1) dishonestly appropriating personal photographs and facebook profile messages to which (i very much doubt) this blogger had permission to use and
2) cyber bullying that could be affecting this girl and her whole family.
Waheguru.

This may not be acceptable to do as a Sikh, however no individual is in any position to point fingers and judge another. Just like people don't know much about you, we don't know much about her either. Keep your opinions to yourselves, And instead of targeting this young woman we should be looking at ways to help reform her, as well as many others that may also have lost sight of the values of Sikhi.

The past is the past. We shouldn't be listening to rumours as supposedly "gursikhs"

Navi said...

I know this girl personally cannot believe what people are commenting claiming she cuts her kesh, shes not a virgin, cannot believe people have the guts to comment this and if you people are so true why dont you use your real name rather than anonymous. Supposed lets believe for a mintue that she actually did that what is it to you, her affections arent affecting so why is everyone bitching about.
