When I watched the Live footage last night it shook my to the core these poor wretched souls are sleeping in filth under the freezing bridges in Southall!

I met a homeless amritdhari Singh from Punjab in the City a few months ago who slept in a derelict building in Aldgate and spent most of the day trying to find work in market stalls or shops around Aldgate. He was on his own and had left Ilford as there was too much alcohol abuse amongst the homeless Sikhs in Ilford. He became homeless as he was unable to keep up paying rent in a "fauji" household due to the lack of continuous work. He was kicked out and tried to spend his days in Singh Sabha Seven Kings and Karamsar Gurdwara, eventually the local sangat and committee in both those Gurdwaras pushed him out as he smelt and could not wash. They wouldn't let him use the Gurdwara facilities to clean up.
About a month ago I met him again in the City and he was looking much more up beat. He was walking to Shepherd Bush Gurdwara everyday (a walk of around 10 miles), who were letting him wash his clothes and have a bath in the Gurdwara. He said that the committee at Shepherds Bush Gurdwara were very supportive and were helping him find work and promised him a room in one of the Gurdwara properties when he found work.
There are some Gurdwaras who do help the homeless and Central London Gurdwara in Shepherds Bush is one of them. I hope the other committees follow the examples set by this Gurdwara.
S.W.A.T. are also doing an excellent job raising awareness in Southall and have also started helping in the Ilford homeless problem too.

We need to help our own, more whites help illegal immigrants from Punjab than our own community.

Ok...from my conservative right wing perspective...why don't we contact the UK Border Agency and get them deported?...their plane tickets paid for by courtesy of the British Tax payer?
They will accuse you of not giving them the opportunity that your father or grandfather had when they came to this country in order to make a life for themselves.

The selfishness of sikhs these days absolutely astounds me. The Gurus preached selfless service to the downtrodden- the Gurdwarra committees should hang their heads in shame.
What of all of the space in Havelock Rd gurdwarra? We have become no better than rich kings selfishly keeping our palaces while we look down on the beggars below and do nothing.
