Why does SikhNet refuse to acknowledge Vikram Singh who is the only Sikh pictured wearing a gatra & Kirpan in 1972 while raising 3HO’s “Sikh Nation” flag in SikhNet’s own article “Inauguration of a Sikh Nation”?

“Inauguration of a Sikh Nation”
Antion Vikram Singh Meredith made this statement on Gurmat Learning Zone recently: I have discussed Vikram Singh's post in the video at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZOedeAszjU :
Antion Vikram Singh Meredith says:
Veer Jaspal Singh ji, After more than 40 years the number of Bhajanists who left Bhajanism and remained Sikhs - like myself - can be counted on the fingers of two hands. For Bhajanists Sikhi and Bhajanism are one and the same. When they tire of Bhajanism they leave Sikhi - except for a very small handful. What kind of miracle is that?
Antion Vikram Singh Meredith says:
Veer Jaspal Singh ji - I don't know how many amritdhari Bhajanists you know but I have known many. I'm sorry to tell you that - overwhelmingly - they do not differentiate between Bhajanism and Sikhi. For example all the ones that I knew put Yogi Bhajan's morning practices before their nitnem - if they did nitnem at all. Their knowledge of Sikh History, History of Guru Sahiban, Sikh Rehat Maryada and Punjabi Culture was verging on the non-existent. All this came second to Yogi Bhajan's yoga teachings. I'm not saying this is true for all - just for the overwhelming majority. You might say - well, you don't need to know these things to be a good Khalsa. That may be true. But if your Sikhi knowledge is only made up of and concerned with Yogi Bhajan's yoga teachings, what kind of Khalsa can you be?
Sikhs request SikhNet stop censoring posts which legitimately criticize Yogi Bhajan & reveal the truth behind the history of 3HO gora Sikhs.

Please find my reply which SikhNet blocked, to a recent SikhNet article "Guruka Singh: How I Became A Sikh": When you talk about "....in 1969 first Batch of American Sikhs visited Siri Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar" as being "pooran sikhs", there are some things you don't realize. First of all, for the record, it was 1970-1971, not 1969. Secondly it was all for show. The overwhelming majority of Yogi Bhajan's "pooran sikhs" were wearing turbans only because they had been told by Bhajan Yogi to do so! Yogi Bhajan knew that it would hugely impress the innocent Punjabis who desperately wanted to believe that Bhajan was converting white westerners to Sikhism. Bhajan knew it would cause a sensation and it did. By the time the white westerners left India there were only a handful who were still wearing turbans and today only one, that number is ( 1 ) of those people is still a Sikh. I might also mention that that one lone person who remained a Sikh is still part of the Yogi Bhajan sect and actively practices tantric & kundalini yoga which are not part of Sikhi. What's so great about that?
"Yogi Bhajan's gora Sikhs! The true history behind 1970 Yatra (trip) to India!"
Sikhs demand that SikhNet publish the true story behind Yogi Bhajan's gora (white) Sikhs! The official Bhajanist story in the photo from 1970 published by Yogi Bhajan's Sikh Dharma International is of course - like so much Yogi Bhajan propaganda - a fraud against the Sikh religion!

Premka Kaur was one of those who supposedly was "moved to take amrit". This is what she said in a court document: http://yogibhajan.tripod.com/id8.html
28. It was during this trip to India that defendants claim that I took Sikh vows. It is true that I participated in a ceremony, which Bhajan orchestrated, at the temple at Amritsar. However, at that time, I understood very little about the Sikh religion, or what the import of the ceremony might be. I did not make a decision that I wanted to become a Sikh or to take Sikh vows prior to going out to the temple or prior to taking the trip to India.
29. This was one of many instances, like the abortion related above, in which I did not choose my conduct or the way I wished to proceed with my life. Bhajan made the choice of what my action would be, and presented it to me as decided.
30. All of us who were on the trip to Amritsar in 1970-1971 participated in what defendants call taking Sikh vows. I participated in the ceremony because Bhajan told me it was special, and he wanted me to do it. I had no independent recognition of the ceremony as a religious ceremony, nor did I know what place, if any, the ceremony had in the Sikh religion.
And Dr. Trilochan Singh in his book "Sikhism and Tantric Yoga" says: http://gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?mode=page&id=1
The Documentary Film on Yogi Bhajan
"The film started with the caption on the screen: "Being a cunning assemblage of unscripted
film documentary, the 90 day Trip of Happiness to India with Yogi Bhajan and his Yoga
students." Here are some of the scenes which have left a deep impression on my mind.
The first humiliating scene is Jathedar of Akal Takhat administering Amrit baptism to the reluctant and ignorant Americans, a drama organized and arranged by
Mahinder Singh and his bosses. They are huddled together and told that all they have to do is to keep their eyes open and say Vah-Guru ji k a Khalsa and Vah-Guru-ji-ki Fateh every time they are given baptismal water. Normally that was what was required from them except wearing five K's, all of which Yogi Bhajan does not wear to
this day. He might do in the future. While baptism is being administered in the film, one can hear laughter, giggling and indecent disturbances from outsiders who are watching and commenting. The whole spectacle is so sacrilegious and an open insult to the authentic and traditional method of administering Sikh baptism that I do not
think Sikh baptism was ever made such a mockery and empty ritual."
Sikhs are encouraged to write Yogi Bhajan's Sikh Dharma on their fb page at this link and insist they tell the truth and stop propagating a false history of Sikhs & frauds against the Sikh religion.
