I don't watch Eastenders.
But some of the characters do fit into the BBC white middle class playbook. Basically, these are the brown people for the white people.
Some of these type of characters have been shown on the BBC and Channel 4 since the 80's.
You have the gay and the taboo relationship with someone from a different religion/colour/culture.
I guess some of these goreh have "curry fever", lol
So thier is Sikh Family in Eastenders who are badly portrayed in very Indian stereotypical manner. the father of the family is in Jail. the Eldest son has Dastar(kheerat) the other 2 sons are mona's . The daughter is a doctor who is bi-sexual and in relationship with a muslim girl. The mother is just pure evil who faked having cancer so her kids would not leave her.
The family run 3 business which are
1) call centre
3)landlords renting houses
amongst this the youngest son is know for doing insurance jobs.
The latest scandal saw Jags go to jail as he was framed (Robbery )insurance job which went wrong which was undertaken by the youngest son. jags was framed and reported to the police by his own mother as he was in love with a Muslim girl.
is too far fetched and does not portray UK Sikhs Punjabis in the right manner. BBC
Their is too much Bhramin Bahsing on here some of it its mythical and plain wrong. dont get me wrong thier are some nasty crafty Bhramins out there and despite being one I dont really get along with them expect my family.(why are not Bhramins in the traditional sense as you guys might think)
so let me debug some of those myths
1) Brahmins control India ? far from it , they are make u 2% of the population and dont get any special rights and reservations.
2) Hindus have it easy in India? Err no thier is alot of Hindu phobia in India . Hindus easily get labeled an extremists if they speak up. they are many poor Hindus living in poverty. Thier are many Hindu majority states below the national poverty line .
3) All Bharmins and Hindus are the same ? err why are not. The cast system is bullcrap and outdated many young Bharmins in India dont fellow the cast system or even stict Hindus' these days. in the Uk many put their ethnicity 1st ask Punjabi ,Gurjarti etc in essence Hinduism is not a religion , Ethnicity, nationality its just a way of life.
Now back to me not get along with Bharamins . I dont know why maybe cause they seem snobbish and judgmental?. I dont get along with Gurjati's too.
