  1. A feminist film company called Dispatch FMI put on a screening of Bend It Like Beckham in London this week. They comissioned an essay to go with the screening and put a call out for proposals a few weeks ago on their twitter page. I was excited to see some positive representation in the media. But they chose Deena al-Aqsa, a Muslim Lesbian, to write the essay. That's how she describes herself in her Twitter bio - that's not me making an assumption and stereotyping her because of her name. Sikhs get so little coverage compared to muslims and we spend so much of our time explaining tha

    media brainwashing

    Here's a list of media brainwashing, in western countries, to make people aware of it and so wake up (and become immune to it), feel free to add your own observations: 1. to view all women (even young women/girls) as sex objects. from a young age the media tries to put the idea in males heads that any female should be sized up for sexual attractiveness 2. for all women to view themselves are sex objects. girls are taught from a young age that what others think of them and how much attention they get is a 'measure' of their 'worth'. any woman who does not want to put excessive at
  6. Can people criticise Sikhi? Recently some woman in Austria was fined and jailed for calling the muslim prophet a pedo. Now obviously different people will have different opinions on this, some will agree some won't. In European countries this is a very touchy subject and we now live in a politically correct culture where most people hesitate to voice their opinions in case they offend someone. With people being jailed for criticising religion, political correctness it makes you wonder if freedom of speech really exists. But what about sikhi, let's say khalistan was created, would the
  7. Found this on the Guardian website. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/oct/08/since-we-married-my-husband-and-i-live-as-friends-not-lovers-what-can-i-do I'm not the one asking for advice, but some of you on this forum might like to use the opportunity to put the columnist right by using the comments section.
  8. Some members on this board constantly complain of underrepresentation in the media - or how it is the "wrong sikhs" speaking out (like Sunny Hundal). So why don't you tell this national newspaper all about your lives in the UK? It's a libral paper, which Sunny has previously written for, but don't let that put you off. Here's the link. Try not to swear or slag off other races and religions, otherwise they won't publish it! https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/nov/25/what-is-your-experience-of-being-a-sikh-in-the-uk
  9. Guru Fateh Jio, I found some wrong review published by times of India as per them they mentioned that the movie on Baba banda singh bahadur is based on mythologies so please check their reviews and report them.please visit link:http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/hindi/movie-reviews/Chaar-SahibzaadeThe-Rise-Of-Banda-Singh-Bahadur/movie-review/55368087.cms - someone emailed it to us
  10. I recently saw the trailer for this film and was saddened, especially seeing that Sikhs possess no viable film industry. http://www.flicks.co.nz/movie/the-dead-lands/ Ironically if we do ever have a historic Sikh film will it have exacerbated stunts like this:? I am sure that somewhere along the line the Punjab film industry grew confused between culture (Punjabi) and history (not balle balle).
  11. I wanted to let everyone know that the funding campaign for The 1984 Project has officially launched on Kickstarter. Please check it out, contribute, and share. Thanks in advance for any help!

My list is growing and I want to interview as many people as possible for this project. If you know of any rescuers of Sikhs, I would also appreciate their stories. The 1984 Project: Contribute Here

  13. The Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund has been invited by the worlds largest media company, Comcast-NBCUniversal, to help produce and distribute a public service announcement highlighting Sikh Americans. When Comcast-NBCUniversal approached [us], we grew increasingly excited about the possibilities. As President Obama said during his first campaign for the White House, Our destiny is not written for us, but by us, said a SALDEF spokesperson. Telling our story to a mainstream American audience, on national television, is a historic opportunity. SALDEF urges Sikhs around the U.S.
  14. The Hindu ----------------- Radical Sikh groups petition UNHRC to recognise 1984 massacre as ‘genocide’ They seek international investigation into the anti-Sikh riots on the basis of "new evidence" Almost three decades after 3,000 Sikhs were massacred (according to government figures) following the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her Sikh body guards, radical Sikh groups led by the U.S.-based Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) have petitioned the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva seeking specifically an international investigation into the November 1984 riots as well as the
  15. This guy Param Singh doesn't stop! Still doing media interviews and biggin himself up after appearing on Take Me Out. He was on BBC WM last night ... this time he flapped after being questioned by Jay Singh-Sohal the author of the new "Turbanology: Guide to Sikh Identity" book. Check it out - SCROLL TO 1:14 ON SHOW PARAM SINGH FROM TAKE ME OUT MUST LISTEN TO INTERVIEW http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p012t626
  16. Sikhs in Uk have been protesting outside 10 Downing street since Friday non stop since Friday Potential death of an innocent man who has been in a hospital for 6 months or so because of mental health issue And yet no media outlets in Uk or the world are reporting this. Not even a signal mention. I cannot applaud and be proud of the Sangat who are there right now and overnight. It gets me so angry however, that our efforts are falling on deaf ears here. It goes to show that politicians and media don't care about protests or whatever it doesn't matter to them one bit if it don't interest them
  17. I just had a thought after discovering many unseen pics of Sikh history and other Sikh texts which have been forgotten (just about) online, that there must have been Sikhs who stored Lala Jagat Narain's garbage and other anti-Sikh media reports in Indian newspapers somewhere. Pictures, videos, newspaper cuttings etc if someone has such material then can you please let me know? I will be very happy to receive such material to spread on social media etc. Especially any material related to controversial actions of Punjab Police etc.
  18. It's time we began using the tools of the modern information age to combat the misinformation and mistruth put out by the Indian propaganda machine. This is something I knocked up in 10 mins after a Google image search. Imagine what someone with actual Photoshop skills would be able to do! It's clear Sikhs will always be labelled as trouble-makers and militants whenever issues such as what is currently happening in Panjab hit the headlines. The world dismisses our cries because it believes WE are the agitators and thus deserve everything that comes our way. This attempt to defame the innoc
  19. I know I am posting this a bit late but I think we all need to be more aware. When these articles get published we should the first to read them and make sure they are correct and also then comment on the articles. Instead uneducated fools start commenting on them and this can have a very negative effect. Simply typing in the word "sikh" into google usually brings up news articles. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/olympics/article-2064280/London-2012-Olympics-Sikhs-allowed-wear-Kirpan-daggers-Games.html
