  1. Listening to Panjab Radio today. There was a discussion on the Friday topic between 12 - 2pm One aunty ji came on and complained about Men with full white beards khulla prakas, wearing gatray, drinking glassy at parties (I presume mostly wedding parties) and throwing money over dancers (I think she said it was dancers). I think she was talking about Ilford mostly, but could be other areas. I think she also complained about them scanning women up and down in Ilford. I haven't seen this happening myself, with old men wearing gatray drinking shraab, in uk or Panjab? Can someone on here clarify if this happens often? This aunty ji seemed to imply it's happening amongst some men and family parties at least.
  2. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-52436350 A baby and a three-year-old boy have been stabbed to death at a home. Police were called to reports of a man and two children injured in Aldborough Road North in Ilford, east London, at about 17:30 BST on Sunday. A one-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene, while the boy died in hospital, the Met Police said. A 40-year-old man was also taken to hospital. Police said all three suffered knife injuries and that they were all known to each other. The Met has launched a murder investigation, but the force said it was not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths. Jas Athwal, the leader of Redbridge Council, tweeted: "Earlier today there was an incident in Ilford. Two young children have passed away & an investigation is ongoing. "My thoughts are with the family and wider community who are grieving this unspeakable tragedy."
  3. Ilford shooting: Shocked Muslims help bloodied man who came into mosque after being shot and stabbed Some worshippers thought there had been another terror attack Mark Chandler a day ago Crime scene: A police cordon outside the centre Noreen Qayyum Shocked Muslims leaving prayers rushed to help when a bleeding man who had been shot and stabbed ran into a mosque saying he had been attacked. The victim, described as a clean-shaven Sikh man, staggered into the Ilford Community Centre on Eton Road just before 2pm on Monday, bleeding from his shoulder. Those at the centre called for an ambulance and police to help the wounded man. Bashir Chaudhry, chairman of the mosque, said some people feared another terror attack had taekn place after people were mowed down early on Monday morning outside a mosque in Finsbury Park. But he said worshippers reacted calmly to the situation. He told the Standard: "Someone walked into the centre and he was bleeding very badly. "When I spoke to him he said 'I've been attacked'. "I immediately called the police and ambulance. It's what anyone else would have done." Mr Chaudhry said the man then left the centre and he followed him out to a nearby house and waited for emergency services to arrive. Police: A probe is underway (Noreen Qayyum) "I tried to help him," he said. "At that time people were leaving the mosque and they saw him and he was very badly hurt. "He was bleeding from the back of his neck and his shoulder and from his face." "Some people misunderstood what had happened," he said. "They thought somebody had attacked the worshippers, that the mosque had been attacked, which is not right." "With what's been going on in Finsbury Park and other places, people are concerned really." A spokesman for the Met said: “Police in Redbridge are dealing after a man was shot and stabbed. “Officers were called at 2.02pm on Monday, 19 June, to Eton Road, Ilford, to reports a man armed with a knife. “Attending officers found a man in a residential address suffering from stab and gunshot wounds. “He was taken to an east London hospital where his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.” Police said there had been no arrests so far and the incident is not being treated as terror-related. It is believed the victim knew his attack, police said. =================================================================== I wonder if any essex ./ east london Sikhs know more about who the victim was and who the attacker is or his racial religious background. If this is found to be an anti-sikh hate crime it will help Sikhs physically wake up and form self defense groups and maybe to get govt funding for resources into protecting the community better.

Atam Academy is scheduled to open in September 2015 at primary school level and secondary school pupils will be welcomed a year later. The school, for pupils aged 4-18, is expected to reach full capacity - 1,260 students - in 2020. It will be the third Sikh-designated free school in the capital - the first of its kind in east London. Mankamal Singh, chairman of the Atam Academy board of governors, said: “It has been a lot of emotion, hard work and commitment in preparing the application. “We have got the thumbs up from the Department for Education so it is full steam ahead now.” Sikh pupils at the school will make up 50 per cent of the intake with non-faith groups making up the other half. Twenty per cent of people who registered an interest in the school by signing a petition are non-Sikh, according to Mr Singh. Governors are yet to secure a site for the school to be built on. “We are not ready to disclose which sites we have been looking at,” said Mr Singh. “The south of Ilford is where the main Sikh community is in the borough but right now we cannot say the school is definitely going to be there.” He added Atam Academy were looking at both privately owned sites and those owned by Redbridge Council. Lee Scott MP for Ilford North applauded DfE’s decision. “I am a believer in faith schools,” said Mr Scott, who sent a letter to DfE supporting Atam Academy’s application. “There is a need for school places in the borough. I think free schools have an important role to play - their ethos is first class.” The council is faced with the task of creating 3,540 school places in the next four years. Redbridge is among the worst-affected boroughs in London, in terms of the demand for school places. Cllr Jas Athwal, leader of Redbridge Council, said: “I think any school of any sort will help with the demand. “The borough will be very grateful we can carry on educating our people.”

  7. Film banned in India - Sadda Haq - draws thousands to Ilford cinema to see story of Punjabi militancy - News - Ilford Recorder http://www.ilfordrecorder.co.uk/news/news/film_banned_in_india_sadda_haq_draws_thousands_to_ilford_cinema_to_see_story_of_punjabi_militancy_1_2020712#sharinganchor ILFORD RECORDER Wednesday, April 17, 2013 9:00 AM A film which has been banned in parts of India for its portrayal of militant groups has been drawing thousands of people to an Ilford cinema. Sadda Haq is a fictional account of a hockey player who joins a militant group which its makers say draws on real-life “torture” against Sikhs in India in the 1980s. It has reportedly been banned by state governments in Punjab and other regions in India but has been bumped up to a larger screen at the Cineworld in Clements Road, with Ilford’s Sikh community flocking to watch it. The Punjabi film, with English subtitles, has drawn fans including Aman Singh, 27, of The Drive, Ilford. He said: “The film shows both sides of the story and I think it’s a great watch. I found myself lost in the storyline, I enjoyed it.” And coach-loads of people went from the Karamsar gurdwara in High Road, Ilford, to the Indian High Commission in London on Monday to protest against the ban. Cllr Balvinder Saund of Seven Kings ward, who said she was one of the first people in line to watch it, said events which inspired it include riots against Sikhs in India in 1984 following the death of Indira Gandhi. She added: “It doesn’t say anything against the Hindu community or any other communities. “It is a voice of conscience.” Ali Raza, Cineworld’s Ilford manager, said the film was originally screened in a 165-seater theatre but was moved to one of the cinema’s largest, holding 300 people, and extra shows have been put on. He said: “With some Bollywood films we can estimate the audience but we can’t predict with some Punjabi films.” A delegation of Hindu organisations reportedly called for it to be permanently banned because they alleged it glorified the Khalistan movement, which wants a separate Sikh country within the Punjab region of South Asia.
