Sikh soldiers guard Queen Elizabeth II


news.yahoo.com

LONDON – Queen Elizabeth II has switched bearskin hats for turbans outside Buckingham Palace, where Sikh soldiers have begun guarding the monarch and her treasures, Britain's defense ministry said Friday.

Signaler Simranjit Singh and Lance Cpl. Sarvjit Singh are the first Sikhs to take part in patrols outside the queen's residence and to stand watch over the Crown jewels at the Tower of London across town.

Guard duties are usually carried out by the Guards of Household Division, famed for their bearskin hats and crimson coats that attract picture-taking tourists in their thousands. T

As I pull back the darkness which protects the British Monarchy (ha ha ha) it seems that what begins to emerge is the true nature of your "Queen".

Is it possible that she is not at all British, but instead an Indian Witch that has throughly pull the wool over the eyes of everyone in the UK.

Cool


Not sure if I agree with your interpretation of what this means, but I think it's neat she's integrating Arabs into the monarchy.

Edit: LOL, pardon my ignorance. I did not know Sikhs were Indians

wow. this is kind of strange. doesn't someone out of the ordinary now guard the pope and the vatican now too? i seem to remember a story about that. and hasn't tony blair been spending a lot of time at the vatican? sorry all this weirdness is getting jumbled up in my head.

Wow, a pretty crazy interpretation of a change of guardsmen!

Not that I particularly approve of the current royal family but it's probably a pretty good idea to have someone from a traditionally noble warrior culture as guards. What would you rather have, a morally upright individual or (as the europeans say) a perfidious Englishman standing watch while you slumber?

Sikhs are a religious group...

To tell the truth..I reckon it should have been the Gurkhas..but that a bias because did some training with them ,,,but the Sikhs have fought alongside the brits for a long time..

I think chritianity has the same enemy as the Sikhs..there is a history..

As Pagan I don't give a toss..just an observation!

And as far as I am aware they came from India..so I reckon they can't be Arabs!

they're still british army, right? but them wearing a different uniform is kinda strange is what i meant. if they're in that army why wouldn't they just wear the same uniforms as the other dudes? why make such a change?

Some of you don't see things as I...that's cool. Some things happen so gradually that when you cross the point of no return, you don't even know that you've crossed and have no idea of what you would go back to if you knew to go back.

I suppose then if the British are cool with being a Province of a Great Sikh Empire then who am I to complain. I am American...and am not a particular fan of British policies over the last 30 or so years. Good luck with that.

I suppose Hindi will have to become the language spoken within the Church of England and on the floor of Parliament before anyone asks questions.

The Sikhs in UK have always integrated ..reckon a lot of them beieve more in the UK and what it stands for than a lot of Brits do!!

I think it goes back to the days of colonialism and the Raj..

Anyway I don't have a problem with it..and I am an ex soldier!!

Oh come on! Is it just me or is this a particularly bizarre train of thought. I haven't been on ATS for quite some time, and I'm starting to see why.

Sikhs aren't Arabs and they have served with honour and distinction in The British Army for quite some time now.

And anyway, Sikhs don't speak Hindi as their primary language. They mainly speak Punjabi.

Of course you don't want to see what I am talking about...you fancy yourself to one of those Persian Immortals. Historically speaking isn't Persian just a region of India anyway.

I guess everyone should expect bias from you. Of course Britain isn't being Infiltrated...its integrating. It's a testament to British multi-culturalism...not symbol of being overthrown.

Here's a video about Sikhs in the British Army



They have a long history and tradition of serving in the British Army

Yes...I am certain that the Sikh propaganda film shows the Sikhs to be wonderful people. They have served with distinction, the British Empire, for many years...I guess it's about time they get some recognition.
