  1. Fifty-five arrested after armed siege at Sikh temple in protest over interfaith marriage Police cordoned off a wide area outside the temple CREDIT: PA Henry Bodkin 11 SEPTEMBER 2016 • 6:03PM Armed police surrounded a Sikh temple after scores of men, some carrying swords, stormed the building reportedly in an attempt to disrupt an interfaith wedding. Fifty-five people were arrested for aggravated trespass following an eight-hour siege at the Gurdwara Sahib in Leamington Spa, which has a history of tensions over mixed marriages. A group calling itself Sikh Youth Birmingham claimed responsibility for the raid, which it said was a peaceful protest undertaken to “uphold the sanctity” of the traditional marriage ceremony. Nothing has happened on this level before.Jatinder Singh Birdi, former temple treasurer A Sikh bride was understood to have been scheduled to marry a Hindu groom at the venue later in the day. The group inside the temple posted a video online of men clad in black with orange bandanas, chanting traditional Sikh verses, as well as a video showing an encounter with two armed policemen who went in to try to talk to the men. One of the men in the first video was waving a placard that read "Stop violating Sikh principles for money". Armed police at the temple Richard Barns, a witness, said he had earlier seen 10 members of the group standing at the door to the building with their arms folded. “It was quite intimidating,” he said. “It looked like they were securing the door.” Officers said a “significant number of bladed weapons”, many of them ceremonial kirpans, were later recovered from the scene after the siege which ended without injury. The protesters arrived at the temple in the early morning CREDIT: SWNS Police, who cordoned off a wide area outside the temple, were seen taking pictures of the arrested men on mobile phones before loading them onto a coach. Officers described the incident, which lasted from about 6.45am to 2pm on Sunday, as a culmination of “ongoing issues”. In July, protesters attempted to disrupt another mixed marriage at the temple. Jatinder Singh Birdi, a former treasurer at the temple, said: “There have been tensions that have been going on for a couple of years with some people objecting to mixed marriages in taking place in the gurdwara. “The general consensus is people are respectful of mixed marriages if the traditions are respected. Nothing has happened on this level before.” Police officers attended the scene CREDIT: KAMERON SIDHU/CATERS NEWS The Sikh Council has argued that the marriage ceremony, known as Anand Karak, should be reserved only for Sikhs, but it has also called for a halt to protest at mixed weddings. Superintendent David Gardner, of Warwickshire Police, said: “Over the coming days we will be working with the local Sikh community to address some of the ongoing issues that have culminated in today’s events.” The Gurdwara Sahib committee has faced criticism in the Sikh community in recent days over proposals to construct a new building, described by some opponents as a "party venue", next to the temple. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/09/11/fifty-five-arrested-after-armed-siege-at-sikh-temple-in-protest/

    Bbc Consultation

    Wjkk Wjkk As the sangat may be aware the BBC is running a consultation regarding its future. In particular this is an opportunity for sikhs to use this to express their displeasure regarding anti -sikh programmes like the nihal show on BBC Asian network and anti -sikh bias in the news such as lack of coverage of the hunger strike by bhapu surat singh and human rights abuses in India.

  6. Surely these things can be resolved without going to the courts : http://www.expressandstar.com/news/local-news/2015/04/04/wolverhampton-sikh-worshippers-in-wheelchairs-forced-to-sit-behind-screen/ PUBLISHED: April 4, 2015 12:45 pm LAST UPDATED: April 4, 2015 12:51 pm Wolverhampton Sikh worshippers in wheelchairs 'forced to sit behind screen'Worshippers are suing the largest Sikh temple in Wolverhampton after accusing it of discriminating against the elderly and disabled - by making people in wheelchairs sit behind a screen. Dee Kaur, Wolverhampton Sikh Forum vice chairman Iqbal Kaur, Harbajan Singh, and his son, Malkit Singh, are pictured by a screen that has been erected in the community hall which people in wheelchairs, or older people who need to sit in chairs, are forced to eat behind 3 Comments Tweet The group accuses the Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara in Blakenhall of leaving people in wheelchairs outside the main prayer room and making them sit behind screens in the dining room because they are unable to observe the custom of sitting on the floor. Papers have been filed with the County Court in Birmingham and letters have been sent by Paul Uppal and Pat McFadden, both seeking re-election as MPs in Wolverhampton, reminding the Gurdwara of its obligations under disability discrimination laws. Around 10,000 people regularly use the Gurdawara in Sedgley Street. The campaigners say people in wheelchairs cannot get up to the prayer room, the Dahar Sahib, because a lift is not always available. Those with mobility problems say they have to sit on benches outside the main room. The committee says no-one is being excluded and that plans are in place for a new building that will improve access to the prayer room. Dee Kaur and Malkit Singh are pictured with temple users and members of the Wolverhampton Sikh ForumA sign in the templeIn the dining area there is a blue screen between the open plan floor, where worshippers sit for food, and an area with tables and chairs. And in the prayer room on either side of the entrance are wooden screens with windows in, which the campaigners say will segregate people who sit on chairs at the back of the room. Rajinder Bassi, chairman of the Sikh Forum Wolverhampton, said around £5,000 has been raised through donations to fund the legal challenge. He said: "What is happening to disabled and older people is degrading. They are missing out on the spiritual aspect and want to be able to join others upstairs. There's nothing in our faith that says the temple should do this." Dee Kaur, aged 63, of Yew Tree Lane, Tettenhall, has been in a wheelchair since 1996 and has brittle bones as well as a condition caused by problems with her antibodies. She said: "I want to go upstairs but can't. "The tables here are kept out of sight. We are being excluded." Malkit Singh, aged 38, of Massbrook Grove, Fallings Park, has cerebral palsy. He said: "I have to sit downstairs. It's like I'm being hidden away." What do you think? Share your thoughts and join the discussion. Log in and start commentingThe forum's vice chairman Iqbal Kaur added: "This has been going on for three years. It goes against their human rights." The management of the Gurdwara says more facilities for disabled worshippers will be provided under plans for a £2 million revamp. In a statement a spokesman, who did not wish to give his name, said: "The services are provided in line with Sikh traditions where all are welcome to visit and pray at the Gurdwara Sahib. We make as far as possibly practical reasonable adjustments that are also consistent with our practices to accommodate people with disabilities taking account of our faith's traditions. "The Gurdwara is governed by direction from Akaal Takhat Sahib Jee - the Sikh Supreme Authority and this is written within the Gurdwara constitution registered with the Charities Commission since its establishment in 1969. Another view of the screenThe outside of the temple"In line with the Sikh principles of worship and serving the community through its open door policy for all regardless of gender, age, race, wealth or faith including those of no faith. The Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee have over the years provided a series of 'reasonable adjustments' which cater for those who are unable to be seated in the two main areas of the Gurdwara, these being the Darbar Sahib where the religious programmes are held and the Langar Hall where the congregation are served blessed food and also socialise with family and friends. "These provisions will be modernised once the approved new building costing nearly two million pounds is constructed this year." In a letter sent last year and published on the forum's website, Conservative Mr Uppal said: "Since seating was removed in 2012 I understand that these members of the congregation have found it increasingly difficult to sit on the floor in the Dahar Sahib to listen and partake in prayers. "It is incumbent upon me to remind the management committee that in many of the congregation's views, this is perceived as discrimination and is understandably causing considerable concern to congregation members, as well as not complying with national legislation." Labour's Mr McFadden also wrote: "I understand of course that in the Gurdwara people sit on the floor. All are equal and sit in the same way before the Guru Granth Sahib. This issue which has been raised with me is what provision should be made for worshippers who, by reason of disability or frailty, cannot sit on the floor. I understand that some Gurdwaras provide some seating to cater for such provision. It is not my role to make a religious judgement. I have, at my constituents' request, checked the position with regard to the legislation which covers access for disabled people and its applicability to places of religious worship."

A criminal investigation has been launched against the non-governmental organisation and the doctors who carried out the operations, mainly on elderly women, without consulting health authorities. The government is trying to check the condition of 45 other patients operated on at the camp in Punjab state in northern India, according to Rajiv Bhalla, a senior government surgeon in the city of Amritsar, where the patients are being treated. "The cause was probably using unsterilised instruments – that can be the only reason for the infection in the eye," said Bhalla. "There are no chances of them having their vision restored." Calls to the organisation that organised the camp and the hospital where it took place went unanswered. The botched operations draw attention to the poor state of health care in India, which has one of the lowest rates of public spending on medical care anywhere, according to the World Health Organization. Last month, at least 13 women died after treatment at an unhygienic mass sterilisation camp in central India. An independent investigation found the doctor used the same needle on each patient and staff never changed their gloves. The mishandled surgeries at the eye camp were discovered when the 15 patients came to a government office on Wednesday asking for medicine and financial help. The operations took place in a village outside Amritsar in early November. "They were very upset and helpless," said Ravi Bhagat, the deputy commissioner of Amritsar. "It took them a while to come to see us because they never knew it was going to be such a serious issue." India has the world's largest number of blind people and cataracts are one of the leading causes of people losing their sight, according to Sightsavers, a British charity. In order to combat the problem, mass cataract camps are organised. "It is just a minor surgery, the results are normally very good," said Bhalla. "This should never have happened."

  9. been watching on PTC channel for last few days there has been heavy rain in Amritsar. Maybe a sign of global warming? Don't remember this ever happening before.
  10. It is hearbreaking to hear of this horrific story. Afgan Sikhs have been abandoned by the authorities, but they have been abandoned by our people as well. We should have a good look at our selves and how the panth helps its own. Can anybody help by starting a relief fund for our brothers and sisters?
  11. Illegal immigrants in Tilbury shipping container were 'Sikhs from Afghanistan' Police reveal more details about 35 men, women and children - including one fatality - found in distress in dockyard By David Barrett, Home Affairs Correspondent 2:45PM BST 17 Aug 2014 The illegal immigrants found screaming for help inside a shipping container at an Essex dockyard were Sikhs from Afghanistan, police have revealed. The officer leading a homicide inquiry after a man’s body was found inside the container along with 34 other people, including several children, said members of the Sikh community from Tilbury were assisting officers and helping to care for the stowaways. They included thirteen children aged as young as one year old, while the oldest adult was 72, Essex Police said. The 34 survivors were taken to hospital suffering from hypothermia and severe dehydration after the discovery early on Saturday and 30 have now been released by doctors “into the care of Essex police and Border Force staff”. A spokesman for Essex Police said the Afghans would be taken to a “suitable location” by Border Force officials, although it is understood they are not in immigration detention.

Many have fled since the Soviet invasion in the early 1980s, when the population stood at more than 100,000. Sikhs in the country have previously complained they are ostracised. The 34 survivors discovered in a container aboard the Nordstream, a P&O freighter, were taken for treatment at Southend, Basildon and the Royal London hospitals. Four remain in hospital at Southend, the police spokesman said, but are expected to be well enough to be discharged later. A post-mortem examination on the remains of the dead man is also due to be carried later. Officers are liaising with Belgian police and Interpol as part of the investigation, which is focusing on the lorry which delivered the container to the Belgian port of Zeebrugge. Belgian police said they believed the immigrants were probably already inside the container when it was dropped at a Zeebrugge before setting sail for Britain. Peter De Waele, spokesman for the federal police in Belgium, said it appeared to be "impossible" for the 35 Afghans to be loaded into the unit in the time it was at Zeebrugge, a port in the north of the country. He said investigators have been combing CCTV and are "very hopeful" they would track down the driver and company of the vehicle that deposited the container. Mr De Waele said each container is captured on camera and their seals are subject to "very strict" controls. "We saw that this container was there for one hour in all in an area where there is a lot of cameras, a lot of people and a lot of cars driving. It was around 6pm so it wasn't dark," he said. "We think that the possibility [is that] the victims were already on the container before it was put down in Zeebrugge because in that area it is rather impossible to put 35 people in that container. "That is not exact information. I think the investigation has to give answers to this question." Supt Roe, of Essex Police, said: "This is a tragic incident where a man has sadly died. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his relatives “Officers from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate have launched a homicide investigation to find out what happened.” The Red Cross has provided food and welfare for the survivors. All of the containers on board the ship have been searched and no further people have been found. A casualty bureau set up by the police, on 0800 056 0944 and 020 7158 0010, has so far received around a dozen calls, said a force spokesman.

    Sikh De La Argentina!

    One thing I can't get my head around... Why has Sikhi not become more widespread in Latin America? According to the article there is only ONE gurudwara in the whole of South America. Is this due to shortcommings by out people not being able to spread the word of Guru Nanak? When you consider other faiths have been able to make large gains there? What do you think?

    Sikh De La Argentina!

    The Sikhs originally came to Argentina in the early 19th century to work on a British-built railroad. Later, in the 1970s, others came after being barred entry to Canada and the United States, the preferred destinations, along with Britain, for the emigrants. At the time, Argentina seemed the most promising of South American nations, and so they stayed, eventually concentrating in the north, which reminded them of the scrappy mountains and plains of Punjab. Today, there are 300 of them, many of whom run supermarkets and other shops. Mixed marriages with Catholic Argentines are common. Although they are increasingly integrated, the temple is an emblem of their adherence to their roots…. The marriages to non-Sikh Argentines means “keeping one’s religion becomes almost impossible,” he said, adding: “I think the third generation is the one that will lose the most.” Sikhs in Argentina: A Report By R. Viswanathan, Ambassador of India to Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay Dante Singh , Monica Singh, Jasbel Singh... Adrian Singh, Alfredo Singh, Yeeta Singh..... There are about three hundred such Argentine Singhs… mostly in Salta and other northern provinces of Argentina. I met about seventy of them in the Gurudwara at Rosario de la Frontera, a small town of 35000 people in Salta province. I joined their Baishaki Day celebrations on 20 April. There were prayers and ceremonies conducted by a Granthi, who has been brought from India. There was a community lunch prepared by the ladies and was served by the men. The Gurudawara is clean, beautiful and inspires divine feelings. They have get togethers on Sundays and there are large gatherings on special religious occasions. Mr Charan Singh who came thirty years back from India is the president of the Gurudwara committee.This is the only Gurudwara in South America. These Singhs had come in the thirties from India. Some of them came to work in the sugar mills owned by the British. Others got into the ships from Calcutta on hearing that they were going to America. They did not know that the destination was South America. Most of them originated from near Ludhiana. Dante Singh´s father was one of the earliest to come. He was also a political organiser. He collected money from other sikhs and sent it for the independence movement in India. The last batch of the immigrants came about ten years back. But no more are coming due to visa difficulties. Some of the Argentine Singhs have migrated to USA and Canada. There are a few new Singhs who have come to other parts of Argentina. Lamba, with his flashy red turban, is a traffic stopper in Buenos Aires. He is settled here for over twenty years in handicrafts business. Simmarpal Singh is in Rio Cuarto near Cordoba city managing 15000 hectares of peanut farm for the Non-resident Indian company Olam. President Zail Singh had visited Salta and met the community during his state visit to Argentina in 1984. Dante Singh was proud showing me fotos of this visit and also the fotos of his father meeting Zail Singh in Rashtrapathi Bhavan in Delhi. Some of the first generation wear turbans. But when they travel outside the province, they put on caps to avoid curious looks and questions. All the Singhs have become Argentine citizens and are well integrated into the local society. Among the first generation, some men married Indian women and brought them, while the others have married Argentines. The Singhs are in business or work as professionals. Many of them own supermarkets, corner stores and transport companies. Dante Singh and Adrian Singh are engineers. Jasbel Singh is studying international affairs and wants to become a diplomat. She recalls with pride her six months-stay in Noida studying television and broadcast journalism. One Mr Ruben Singh is there already in the Argentine Foreign Service. I hope an Argentine Singh will become Ambassador to India. Monika Singh is a software engineer working with Oracle in Buenos Aires. Yeetu Singh gives Indian dance classes and has done some Indo-Argentine fusion in dance. The second and third generation, which goes to school and college is keen to know more about India and talk about it proudly with their classmates. Here is Dante Singh at the entrance of the Gurudwara: Here I am, giving a speech holding the a microphone in hand, with my head covered. But a microscope is needed to recognise me.... In my speech, I spoke about how proud India is to see the Singhs speaking in Punjabi and worshipping in a Gurudwara in this part of the world. While recognising the suffering and sacrifice made by their parents and grand parents, I mentioned that in the India of today and tomorrow, there is no need for Indians to go out for a better life. Foreigners come to India for working in Bangalore. Here is Kanwaljeet Singh with his son Gurdeep, who has asked for an Indian flag for his school and books in spanish on India. community lunch All the Singhs in Salta region speak fluent Spanish. Besides the first generation, even some young people from the second generation speak Punjabi enthusiastically. Virtually no one speaks English. I had to give my speech in Spanish. Hmm....A Tamil from India communicating with the Punjabis in the Gurudwara in Argentina in Spanish ! R. Viswanathan, Ambassador of India to Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay
  14. This news is welcome, especialy since the sister school, Nishkam Primary School was rated :requires improvement in all inspection areas in its earlier ofsted inspection which lead to the resignation of the head teacher Narinder Brach. ther is still no new head teacher in situ This came without any pre-warning to parents, hopefully now they can move forward. It is also interesting to note that the Nishkam School Trust is due to take control of Anand Primary School in Wolverhampton.
