A dedicated Sikh religious channel is all set for launch in January, BizAsia can reveal.
The channel formerly known as Sikh TV, will come back as Akal TV at the end of January. Details of Akal TV are being kept underwraps due to competition from the existing two Sikh television services including Sikh Channel and Sangat TV – both on the Sky Digital platform.
Akal TV plans to broadcast Sikh religious and documentaries, with live Akhand Paths from various Gurdwaras in the UK. The channel is based in Birmingham. The management of Akal TV is different to that of Sikh TV. 
Akal TV will be a free-to-air channel, available on Sky Digital from Monday 28th January.

Is it ?     If its the same 'Akal TV' that already operates in Canada than its gonna be more of a Punjabi cultural channel than a Sikh channel   The one and only important issue that needs to be discussed here is this :  Who is funding this new 'Akal TV' ?     I don't know the answer to that question but if I were an Indian govt operative I would make it a priority to fund a channel purporting to be a Sikh channel whilst espousing the virtues of India.

its Amrik Singh Kooner from the famous "Sofa factory" who is behind this new channel. He is supported by Dr Sadhu Singh from Wolverhampton who used to be a presenter for the Sikh Channel


Nal charkhiyan desh nai azaad hoya, avein lokh Gandhi vargyain nu sehra banai firde,
ohna dian dhotian naal nahi angrezi sarkar hilli, photo jinna dian notan te shapai firde.
Khoon dholke jina lai azaadi, kurbani ohna di aaj bhulai firde,
Bhul gaye sare Bhagat Singh soorme nu, Ehvi Gandhi nu bapu bani firde!!!

The whole SikhTV disapearance was very dodgy..since the unfortunante death of CEO Gagandeep Singh, all the channel ever did was appeal for money to run thr channel...they they disspaeared off air...where did all the money that was raised in Gagandeeps name go ?? Theres no accountability..

That doesn't make things any clearer.  Never heard of the Kooner geezer and this 'famous' sofa factory can't be as famous as you think coz I've never heard of it.  The only thing I'd like to know is what side of the fence does Mr Kooner sit on ?   Is he generally known in the Midlands as a firm supporter of Sikh rights ? Is he generally known in the Midlands as someone that speaks up for the victims of India's human rights abuses ?   If not, then you can bet your bottom dollar that he has been silent because he sits on the other side of the fence.

So you see, a headline such as 'New Sikh Channel starting' is meaningless until some basic facts start to emerge. The sangat need the facts in advance so they can assess whether its a good thing or a bad thing.   We, as a community, are known for being rather vague when it comes to facts.

Here we are on this thread, still none the wiser. We still don't know whether the news is the best thing in the world or the worst thing in the world. We don't know that because nobody here from the Midlands is educating us about Mr Kooner.
