Flagged this thread because of all of the information about the Sikhs. I was personally a person who while I deeply respected Sikhs, I thought that the religion was a cross between Hindu and Islam as well.


But there's nothing wrong with learning new things! Even if it doesn't directly apply to me, seeing as I'm in the U.S.A.

Anyway, regarding the thread topic.. I don't think the Queen is going anywhere, anytime soon. "Oh NOES they're guarding teh QUEEN" --

It's really irrelevant who stands at the gate. The actual protection comes from the London Metropolitan Police Royalty Protection Branch.

I have been told they don't even have ammo in their rifles and that the magazines are empty.

Thankyou Life3 for your informative posts about Sikh history.

I am familiar with some aspects of Sikh tradition, such as the 5 K's as I am a Nurse and have to be aware of various religions and their differences.

You've got Sikhs watching over your Queen.

I am proud to say this is true.

I come from Birmingham, England, which has one of the highest populations of Indians in the UK. Many of my best and most trusted friends are Indian, many of whome are Sikh.

Are you trying to say that there is something wrong with Sikhs guarding the Queen? If so, please try not to be so bigotted. If not, please phrase your statements more carefully.
