First and foremost, Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh and Sat Sri Akaal. The video below is a interview of Sardar Bhai Jarnail Singh Ji, a trailblazer and iconic figure for the Sikh panth who passed away due to complications of Covid-19 and/or shortage of oxygen as witnessing/reading his tweet on Twitter. I do believe that in foreign nations like incredible India known for being the most vile and having the corrupt authority system, L. Sardar Jarnail Singh did the right thing of hurling the shoe at the congress party member many years back and he vividly and vocally states in his book of 'I Accuse' and forward done by Khuswant Singh. We would appreciate if you take some of your spare time to give feedback on how the interview could be enhanced more or what you enjoyed? and disliked about both interviewer and interviewee. Some cherished memories and photos while him being on tour in England in 2011 with the sacred sangat. REST IN POWER to Sardar Jarnail Singh Ji. Also, the other day I caught a glimpse of his bhog on Akaal Channel.
Waheguru Just wanted to share some thoughts on the new channel KTV. Would anyone know if it is a deliberate policy of KTV to have presenters and guests with heads uncovered, and Sikh presenters not wearing karas? I also would like to know about Khalsa TV rationale of promoting folk music and non-Dharmik musical tours which contravene Sikhi values. Given that no other Sikh based channel does this (I think )? The controversial Gurdas Mann song on Bhagat Singh got heavily promoted during the early days of KTV and more recently his upcoming UK tour is being very actively promoted on KTV. Seems a contradiction of Sikh values not just because of the lyrics he sings, but the thousands of people who sway to his musical promotion of liquor and caste. Even more concerning is his belief in a dera that inculcates intoxication of drugs to get 'masti' and the fact that this dera has grown significantly due to Gurdas Manns patronage. i would paradoxically have expected KTV, Sikh Channel or all the channels to instead hold Gurdas Mann and other singers to account and campaign to get people to boycott his tour so it becomes such a flop he doesn't come back until he turns his back on said dera and changes terminology of his sexist, castist, anti-Sikhi songs. This sought of Punjabi type of programming, first subtly introduced by Akaal Channel seems to be happening more and more on KTV and is likely to be picked up by other channels with KTV actually having shows which exclusively play folk music now. Given these policies on programming perhaps a name such as Punjabi TV would be more suited to the KTV channel if it isn't going to just promote Sikh values but also Punjab culture? With a prominent Sikh organisation, Sikh Federation and also Sikh Network either funding or promoting and/ or being behind KTV, I was hoping they would act on these issues rather than it be left to individuals to express concerns with the channel. It would be a shame if other channels used these examples as an excuse to lower the promotion of Sikh values, rather than KTV setting new benchmarks. For example when Sikh Channel first appeared presenters and guests always had heads covered; however when other channels didn't adhere to this, Sikh Channel also dropped this value from their programming values instead of sticking to it and by adhering to it, applying pressure on the newer channels to conform. Just wanted to share some concerns as a concerned Sikh on this sudden demise of Sikh values across the breadth of Sikh TV channels. I don't want this to be a hater discussion but a proper discussion on retaining and promoting Sikh values in our media. Guru Fateh sangat Ji
