Re: Why Khalistan is a BAD Idea..

I will begin by saying that I am not an advocate for either side of the issue of Khalistan. However, I would like to answer some of your assertions and sometimes play the devil’s advocate.

Re: Should all Sikhs be vegan?

WJKK WJKF, So I've been thinking about this for a long time. For all those who may not know, being vegan is when we don't eat any animal products at all, (no meat, egg, dairy) and we don't support industries or wear clothes that promote the killing of animals (leather bags, suede shoes etc...) So i...
