  1. Understand family who made booking withheld groom's name. When Gurdwara found out cancelled. Groom was Somali Muslim. We can not blame Gurdwara if information is withheld.
  2. SIKHS HOPE TO INFLUENCE OVER 300 MPs ON BACK OF SIKH MANIFESTO London 15 April 2015 Following three launch events for the Sikh Manifesto in Southall, Smethwick and in the UK Parliament the Sikh Federation (UK) and Sikh Network has reached out to Gurdwaras and Sikh representatives in different regions. A series of visits and meetings have taken place in the last four weeks in the North East, Wales, South West and North West on the need to register to vote and how best to use the Sikh Manifesto. Next week Sikh Federation (UK) representatives will complete regional events with a meeting in
  3. Gaffe of the day Spotted on a train — Red Ed pouncing on a Sikh passenger, saying: ‘Are you going to ensure that the Sikh vote turns out for us?’ Sadly the Sikh was Amandeep Singh Bhogal, Tory candidate for Upper Bann in Northern Ireland. He replied: ‘I’m going to make sure the Sikh vote turns out — but not for you.’ Daily Mail - 16 April 2016

  5. Full text of David Cameron's 2015 Vaisakhi message I send my best wishes to everyone in India, Britain and around the world celebrating Vaisakhi. I know this is an incredibly important time for the Sikh community as families and friends come together to commemorate the birth of the Khalsa and give thanks. From Southall to Sunderland, from Ottawa to Amritsar, Sikhs around the world will be marking Vaisakhi with vibrant parades and celebrations with homes, Gurdwaras and entire neighbourhoods bursting into life with decorations and colour. Vaisakhi also gives us a chance to celebrate the immen
  6. 'The 2015 Vaisakhi message from David Cameron is excellent. This sort of message at Vaisakhi from the British Prime Minister would have been unheard of a few years ago.' 'British politicians are now talking about the Birth of the Khalsa and the Sikh community alone. This is down to the hard work of many organisations, including the Sikh Federation (UK) and many individuals working behind the scenes that are finally getting British politicians to appreciate what the Sikh Nation has to offer not just Britain, but the world.' 'No doubt the impending election on 7 May and the importance of the
  7. Ed accused of racism over 'secret' visit to a Sikh Gurdwara - Daily Mail (10 April) Just to clarify on behalf of the Sikh Federation (UK). Ed Miliband was not accused of racism, but some members of his team were rude in the way they handled the whole event and their offensive behaviour touched of racism. Also no comment was made about Ed Miliband's head covering. http://www.dailymail.co.uk//Ed-accused-racism-secret-visit… We know when David Cameron will next be in a Gurdwara during the lead up to the General Election. Will he do the same thing or will he give an interview to the Sikh Federa
  8. Headlines from Ed Milibands visit to Leamington Gurdwara yesterday ITV Central and Sky News told in the morning the event at the Gurdwara was private. Why do Labour not want Sikh events to receive national mainstream media coverage? Whole event carefully stage managed by the Labour Party and Gurdwara Management Committee to stop proper interaction with the Sangat (congregation) and to try and avoid awkward questions. No filming or photographs allowed inside the Gurdwara other than those taken officially by the Labour Party these will be released today. Sky News still obtained footage
  9. Exchanges on the Sikh News Discussion forum between 17-19 March that are relevant to the grooming/conversion issue are below. Hate attacks targeting Sikhs and our institutions (possibly through mistaken identity) were discussed at the first roundtable meeting with the UK. Government. The facts surrounding the attack in Tescos in Mould, Wales were fairly clear cut. There was a Sikh victim in hospital and someone arrested. If you are serious and want action to be taken a 30 second video and media publicity mainly by the tabloids without establishing the facts is just not sufficient. The c
  10. The important point is the Sikh Manifesto and the initial meetings before the General Election have created the opportunity for Sikhs collectively working on this issue to come up with areas where the government can assist to tackle this issue. The Sikh Federation (UK) suggested the Sikh Council UK invite the leading organisations involved in this issue to roundtable discussions this month and come up with the submission to government by 30 April. We can extend this deadline, but will want to have something ready by mid-may at the latest for the incoming administration. The Sikh Federation
  11. Press Release was by Sikh Press Association, the Sikh Federation (UK) was asked for a quote.
  12. Most public statements are put on the Sikh Facebook Page - Please follow. Around 20 -25 posts a week Every year an annual highlights booklet (40-50 pages) is published and also put on the Sikh Federation (UK) web site. Please see previous reports for statements on grooming. Roundtable meeting with Sikh organisations was on 9/3/15 - Sikh Federation (UK), Sikh Council UK, Federation of Sikh Organisations (FSO), British Sikh Consultative Forum (BSCF) and City Sikhs Network (CSN) were represented. Network of Sikh Organisations and Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha failed to attend. Three topics

  15. No such thing as umbrella bodies for Sikhs In the UK - Sikh Federation (UK) Responding to an article in the Times of India earlier this week on whether the Sikh Federation (UK) is an umbrella Sikh body. The following press release has been issued and is being sent to several newspapers. Umbrella bodies for Sikhs and other faith communities in the UK are a thing of the past. These bodies were traditionally encouraged by the UK Government and officials for representational purposes as they liked to deal with one or two community leaders in return for official patronage.
