  3. To be fair, this is an issue which is more specific to our ‘freshie’/new arrivals from India. They usually arrive alone/without much family network here. This along with potential grooming of daughters (and bullying of boys and girls ) growing up her are issues that I hope the new arrivals can get into their head ASAP. unfortunately, not many are members here and mainly only post in the ‘Gupta’ section here. But Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp are used by many and info circulates fast there
  4. He got one year.... https://cyprus-mail.com/2022/07/01/british-tourist-jailed-for-one-year-after-napa-hit-and-run/ British tourist jailed for one year after Napa hit-and-run By Nick TheodoulouJuly 1, 202234 Comments4410 A 26-year-old British tourist has been jailed for one year after he was found guilty of the hit and run which killed a Swedish mother on holiday. Police confirmed to the Cyprus Mail that the Briton, named as Manraj Singh Sidhu, was sentenced on Monday and was found guilty of multiple serious charges – with his driving licence also suspended for 18 months. Camilla Christina Pamdahl, 46, had left her five-year-old daughter in the care of hotel staff so that she could cross the road and visit the nearby supermarket. Sidhu was found guilty of carrying out a dangerous and reckless act which resulted in the death of a person, reckless and dangerous driving, and abandoning the scene of a fatal crash, among many others. He fled the scene on foot but was tracked down by police a few hours later. Britain’s Daily Mail spoke to Pamdhal’s husband, Jonas, who has expressed his shock and dismay at the seemingly lenient sentencing. “How can this happen? How can the judge only give one year? It seems to me they have rushed through this case and no matter he pleaded guilty. What about our family?” Jonas told the Daily Mail. The incident occurred on May 5 at a pedestrian crossing on the main artery of Nissi Avenue in the coastal town. He fled the scene on foot but was tracked down by police a few hours later. An alcotest identified a reading of 44μg, more than four times over the legal limit of 9μg, and a drugs test returned positive for cannabis. Jonas further expressed his shock at the sentencing, stating: “I’m not sure the judge looked close enough into the circumstances. I’ve heard that he said he had served to avoid a stopped car, but he still hit Camilla on a pedestrian crossing”. Police previously stated that the driver failed to stop at a pedestrian crossing where the woman was attempting to cross. “A young man driving the rental buggy overtook a stopped car, and hit the woman,” they said. The Swedish woman was taken to Famagusta general hospital where she was declared dead on arrival. Photos showed immense damage to the rental buggy, with the front completely caved in.

  6. https://www.business-standard.com/article/international/british-sikh-mp-preet-kaur-gill-seeks-urgent-action-on-rising-hate-crimes-122101100147_1.html British Sikh MP Preet Kaur Gill seeks 'urgent action' on rising hate crimes Preet Kaur Gill, an Indian-origin British Sikh MP, in a letter to Home Secretary Suella Braverman, has sought protection and urgent action against rising crimes against the community in the UK. Last Updated at October 11, 2022 09:14 IST Preet Kaur Gill, an Indian-origin British Sikh MP, in a letter to Home Secretary Suella Braverman, has sought protection and urgent action against rising crimes against the community in the UK. Quoting hate crime statistics 2021-22, Gill, an MP from Birmingham, said hate crimes against Sikhs rose by 169 per cent in comparison to a 38 per cent increase in reported religious hate crimes overall. "I am deeply concerned by these new statistics. 301 hate crimes against Sikhs were reported in 2021-22, up from 112 in 2020-21. The 169 per cent increase is compared to a 38 per cent increase in reported religious hate crimes overall", Gill said in the letter, which she released on Twitter on Monday. The 2001 census recorded 336,000 Sikhs living in Britain. Gill said 301 hate crimes against Sikhs were reported in 2021-22, up from 112 in 2020-2021. The letter, which was also addressed to Simon Clarke, secretary of the department for levelling up, housing and communities (DLUHC), comes as 28 year-old Claudio Capos from Manchester was awarded a three year jail term recently for attacking 62-year-old Avtar Singh in broad daylight this June. Singh had suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, a stroke caused by bleeding on the brain and multiple fractures to his cheek, jaw and eye socket as a result of the attack, the BBC reported. Gill, in her letter, urged Braverman to implement the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) report on British Sikhs, which was published in 2020. The report found that the lack of an official term was a contributing factor as to why crimes against Sikhs go largely "unnoticed, unreported and unrecorded". This report, Gill said, was shared with both the home secretary and communities secretary at the time and was an attempt to consult the government on the definition of Anti-Sikh hate. "However, despite multiple promises of substantive response and offers of a meeting, the home office and DLUHC, between them, have failed to respond," she added.
  7. @Ranjeet01 @dallysingh101and anyone else who can remember this story. was this on a level of police incompetence as the Stephen Lawrence enquiry? Was it definitely whites or was it some other brown people that targeted Ricky and his friends ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ricky-Reel-Silence-Not-Option/dp/1914143574/ref=asc_df_1914143574/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=606746863805&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10571136343496038818&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9044970&hvtargid=pla-1729121938056&psc=1&th=1&psc=1 https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/newsbirmingham/ricky-reels-mum-to-speak-of-25-year-fight-for-justice-over-death-of-her-son/ar-AA12HWlH Ricky Reel's mum to speak of 25-year fight for justice over death of her son Amneet Kaur - Friday ReactComments A mum is seeking answers to end the 25-year riddle of how her much-loved son was found dead in the River Thames. Heartbroken Sukhdev Kaur Reel said she and others needed to finally know what happened to 20-year-old Ricky. He vanished in October 1997 after a night out with friends in what his mother believed was a racist attack in Kingston-upon-Thames in south-west London. His three friends were able to regroup but Ricky never did. His body was found in the water a week later. Sukhdev has written a book, Silence is not an option, about her struggle for the truth and how she has coped with her son's unsolved death. She is touring the work and will speak at Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Smethwick, from 3pm to 5pm tomorrow, Saturday, October 8. She claimed police did not support her and instead made stereotypical assumptions about him due to his race and skin colour. The Met confirmed the case remained open and has previously denied Ricky's race was a factor in its investigation. In 2014, the then-chief constable of Derbyshire Constabulary, Mick Creedon, said in a report into Scotland Yard's now-disbanded undercover unit, the Special Demonstration Squad, that information on families campaigning for justice for loved ones was gathered by officers who infiltrated political groups. He said the justice campaigns had not been the targets of police infiltration. The intelligence was "hoovered up" accidentally by officers ordered to infiltrate leftist groups, which police chiefs believed were capable of violence. Sukhdev told BirminghamLive: "I wanted to have the book ready and published on Ricky’s 25th anniversary. It is his legacy and memories for his siblings and their children who unfortunately never met Ricky. "People need to know what happened to Ricky and how we were treated by the institutions who are supposed to deliver justice. Instead we were mocked because of our colour and race. In the eyes of the police there is this perception that Asian families force their children into marriages. I wanted to show the world that is not the case. We are no different and we need justice. "Justice is essential and not elective. The book details the truly shocking compound failure by the police to investigate the death, while displaying ineptitude, indifference, incompetence and downright hostility towards our family. "Basic investigations into what happened including searches were carried out by the family. It later transpired that the family and its supporters were under police surveillance at a time when resources were deemed scarce and unavailable to be used for investigation into Ricky's disappearance. The police refused then, and to this day, to be open, transparent and accountable. Asked if she believed racially-motivated crime rates had dropped 25 years on, Sukhdev said: "One only has to look at the history and our case to see institutional racism we as people of colour face in today’s society. "Some may say this happened 25 years ago. But in light of the recent events and revelations particularly about the Met, I am saddened to say that it could have happened yesterday. In my opinion I see no changes to racism we faced 25 years ago, which I feel is very much alive today as well. " A Met spokesperson said: "The investigation into the death of Ricky Reel remains open. "The Met's inquiry has been extensive - since Ricky’s disappearance and the discovery of his body in the River Thames on October 21, 1997, there have been numerous investigations and reviews. Officers have taken hundreds of statements from witnesses and people with information. "There have been many media appeals and local leaflet appeals as part of our extensive efforts to piece together the circumstances around Ricky’s death. "The inquest in 1999 into Ricky’s death returned an open verdict. In 2012, new information was reported to police by a member of the public – which led to a man being interviewed by officers however he was subsequently eliminated from the inquiry. "No arrests have been made, or charges brought in connection with Ricky’s death. "Currently, there are no active lines of inquiry into the death of Ricky and the case remains open. We would urge anyone with information about Ricky’s death to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Any new information will be assessed and followed up as appropriate."
  8. Another Sikh MP likely soon @jkvlondon @dallysingh101 - happy ? From Labourlist website Sam Tarry MP has been deselected after local members voted for Jas Athwal to be the party’s parliamentary candidate for Ilford South at the next general election. In a meeting of the Ilford South Constituency Labour Party (CLP) this evening, the Labour leader of Redbridge Council reportedly received the backing of 499 members – while 361 supported the incumbent MP. Commenting after the result was announced, Tarry told LabourList: “I’m incredibly disappointed in this result, mostly for all my committed volunteers and the wonderful people of Ilford South. I intend to issue a further statement tomorrow on the process and outcome.” Athwal said: “Ilford is my home, it is where I live, went to school and where my children all went to school. It is the only place I would ever want to represent. The opportunity to be the Labour candidate at the next election and be part of Keir Starmer’s winning team is a real honour.” From Guardian website https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/oct/10/sam-tarry-deselection-bid-ilford-south-constituency Athwal, a close ally of several Labour MPs including Wes Streeting, was favourite for selection for the Ilford South seat in 2019, but was suspended over an allegation of sexual harassment shortly before the selection battle. But Athwal was cleared of wrongdoing and claimed the complaint was malicious and his suspension politically motivated. Tarry won the selection battle during Athwal’s suspension and went on to be elected MP with a majority of more than 24,000. The circumstances of the selection process led to a deep split in the constituency party.
  9. A terrible crime/killings, definitely. Famous people are known to us by name or sight etc so reasonable that there would be more interest in news concerning them. Just read this (Belfast Telegraph site): brother was involved
  10. From bbc website A "thug" who punched a Sikh priest in the street and left him for dead has been jailed. Claudio Campos, 28, attacked Avtar Singh, 62, in Manchester city centre's Northern Quarter on 23 June. He had pursued Mr Singh shortly after he walked past him and his girlfriend at a pedestrian crossing. Campos, who had earlier pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm, was jailed for three years at Manchester Crown Court on Thursday. The court heard Mr Singh had suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, a stroke caused by bleeding on the brain and multiple fractures to his cheek, jaw and eye socket as a result of the attack. He remains in hospital requiring 24-hour nursing and medical care. Eleanor Myers, prosecuting, said Campos was seen on CCTV footage pursuing Mr Singh, who was trying to walk away from him, before the defendant punched the cleric in the head twice in quick succession. Campos then grabbed his victim's shirt before punching him again to the head, which sent him sprawling to the ground, Ms Myers said. He then left the scene as Mr Singh lay unconscious in the middle of the road, the court heard. Campos went on to a sports bar for a beer and a burger with his girlfriend, Claudia, as they celebrated their fifth anniversary. He told police his partner had said a man had touched her bottom and she pointed to Mr Singh, the court was told. Campos said he followed Mr Singh to "demand an explanation" and that when Mr Singh quickened his pace he felt "this made him guilty in trying to escape". When he was arrested, several items were seized at a property in Fallowfield, including a suitcase containing the jacket he was seen to be wearing on the CCTV images. Sentencing Campos, Judge Hilary Manley told him he had attacked Mr Singh "without any justifiable reason". "As a direct result of your decision to attack him, his life, and the lives of his family, are forever traumatised, changed and diminished. "He gave you no reason at all to do what you did." The judge rejected the defendant's claim he was "very sorry" and she said that in a letter to her, Campos had "very swiftly" turned to his own situation and his appeal for a suspended sentence. One of Mr Singh's daughters, Surinder, told Campos he was "nothing but a thug", while his other daughter, Sukhveer, labelled the defendant a "monster". She said her father could not now read his prayers or write in his prayer book. Meanwhile, Pritpal Singh Makan told the court Mr Singh and his family were regular volunteers with not-for-profit organisation Sewa (Selfless Efforts for Welfare of All) and he would help feed the homeless every Sunday in Manchester city centre. Mr Singh was "polite and courteous", he said, adding that they considered the attack on him to be "racial". The judge said the maximum sentence she could pass for the offence was five years and Campos must receive credit for his plea
  11. Punjabi Sikh family killed in California WIONEWS Website California | Updated: Oct 06, 2022, 10:03 (IST) All four members of an India-origin Sikh family, including an eight-month-old girl, were found dead in an orchard in California, the Merced County sheriff said Briefing media on Wednesday night, Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke said a farm worker in the area found the bodies, which were found relatively close together. He said that the Department of Justice crime lab is going to probe the crime scene, adding that they "don't know all the facts yet", reports ABC News. Terming it "horribly senseless," the sheriff said they are finding out the cause of the murder. Warnke further said he spoke to the suspect, who is in custody and admitted in the hospital, but did not provide additional details. Among the deceased are: eight-month-old Aroohi Dheri, her parents —27-year-old mother Jasleen Kaur and 36-year-old father Jasdeep Singh —, and the baby’s uncle, 39-year-old Amandeep Singh. The police said that the couple and the baby were kidnapped at gunpoint from a convenience store they own in Merced County in Northern California. The police said that the couple and the baby were kidnapped at gunpoint from a convenience store they own in Merced County in Northern California. They hailed from Harsi Pind in Hoshiarpur, Punjab. Police found out about their kidnapping after they discovered a vehicle owned by one of the family members on fire on late Monday, which led them to determine that they had been kidnapped. According to a news release, detectives received information on Tuesday morning about the accused, 48-year-old Jesus Salgado, after he used their ATM card in Atwater in Merced County. On Tuesday, the man attempted to take his own life prior to “law enforcement involvement" and is currently in critical condition receiving medical attention, the Merced County Sheriff's Office said.

Hardy Singh, who is a Dubai-based bhangra dancer and teacher, is currently on a world tour delivering bhangra seminars for his company Pure Bhangra. He was recently in the US and it's safe to say he had a blast. Taking to Instagram, he shared the video in which he was seen performing bhangra to the famous Punjabi song 'Mundian Toh Bach Ke' at Times Square as passers-by watched on. In the caption, Hardy wrote, "Ticking of the Bucket List." He further added, "Yes, I danced in Times Square. Yes, In the middle of a road. Yes, We halted traffic. Yes, We waited an hour for the perfect shot. Yes, This was an on-the-spot choreo. Yes, It had to be Punjabi MC. Yes, I am so happy." Since being shared, the video has garnered more than 2 lakh views and over 20,000 likes. People were left impressed by the man's terrific performance. "Nicely done!! Loved watching it," a user commented. "And casually walked off! Smashed it bro!!!" another user said. "I really love how you spread your culture to the World, no matter who is looking at you, you just dance with love and passion," a third user added.
  13. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63072113 Russia's Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony on Friday to annex four more areas of Ukraine after self-styled referendums condemned by Ukraine and the West as a sham. Russian-backed officials had earlier claimed the five-day exercise secured almost total popular support. So-called votes were held in Luhansk and Donetsk in the east, and in Zaporizhzhia and Kherson in the south. The Russian president will make a major speech at the Kremlin. A stage has already been set up in Moscow's Red Square, with billboards proclaiming the four regions as part of Russia and a concert planned for the evening. The event echoes Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, which also followed a discredited referendum and was heralded by a Kremlin signing followed by a presidential victory speech in parliament. That initial annexation has never been recognised by the vast majority of the international community, and nor will this. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said the "pseudo-referendums" were worthless and did not change reality. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. And our reaction to recognition of the results by Russia will be very harsh." No independent monitoring of the Russian process took place and election officials were pictured going from door to door escorted by armed soldiers. "Tomorrow at 15:00 (12:00 GMT) in the St George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace a signing ceremony will be held on incorporating the new territories into Russia," said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Separate agreements will be signed with the two Russian-backed separatist leaders from the east and the two Russian-appointed officials from the south. As with Crimea, Russia's two houses of parliament will formally ratify the annexation treaties next week. The Russian president is expected to address to the upper house of parliament on 4 October, three days before his 70th birthday. The US has said it will impose sanctions on Russia because of the staged referendums, while EU member states are considering an eighth round of measures, including sanctions on anyone involved in the votes.
  14. https://www.ndtv.com/world-news/video-sikh-student-with-kirpan-arrested-in-us-university-3375600 Social media users gave a sharp reaction to the manner in which police treated a college-going student. WorldEdited by Nikhil PandeyUpdated: September 25, 2022 12:52 pm IST Kirpan is one of the integral parts of five Sikh Kakars. In a shocking incident that occurred in the United States of America, a Sikh student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte was arrested on campus for wearing a Kirpan. The incident was first made public when the student uploaded the incident's video on Twitter and said that the police had handcuffed him for refusing to let the officer remove his Kirpan from the miyaan. In the video's caption, he described his suffering: "I wasn't going to post this, but I don't think I will receive any support from @unccharlotte. I was told someone called 911 and reported me, and I got cuffed for "resisting" because I refused to let the officer take my kirpan out of the miyaan. An upset social media user wrote that it was "very unfortunate that you got arrested with no provocation or threats made. Many Americans legally carry small handguns in their holsters, they don't get arrested. I hope the complaint gets dismissed & an apology is issued,". Another user wrote, "This must be looked into and the officer must be reprimanded and trained so that he knows the legality of baptised Sikhs carrying religious items. There have never been any problems with Sikhs carrying these for many years. A person wrote about the significance of having a basic understanding of religion in the multicultural society of America, "Everyone should have basic knowledge Of all religions, including Sikhism and the 5 K's".
