Hello sikh channel. I was wondering why you didnt bother airing the 1984 rally promo video?

You were emailed with the link and full video but you didnt bother airing the video on the sikh channel, nor did you bother replying to the email...

I wanted to know why that was??

P.S. I know you did air another 1984 rally video sent to you by Sikh Federation because I saw it, but im reffering to the other one which was sent to.

The link to the video which was sent to u is shown below:

you did not air this nor bother replying to the emails sent...

I was not happy at this, because airing this particular video would of had a greater impact on viewers and is more thorough. yet no reply was given..

Sikhsangat isn't the official forum(is it?) to raise issues with Sikh Channel, yes they use it but it is not official way. Send them a PM, why start threads or joining in threads? Come on Sangat Ji let's be professional about it all

This is the perfect place to raise these issues, infront of everyone. If their "not replying" was for a genuine reason then let all here see their reason. Afterall, truth is the highest virtue.

Besides whats it to you?

The question was posed to the sikh channel representative.

Also I'd like to add that I'm pleased that the sikh fed video was aired.

Im not saying the other 1 should of been aired as opposed to this 1.

Im saying both should have been aired.

I'm more annoyed with the fact that no reply was given..

This is not an attack, its a question which I am seeking an answer to.

A promo has been playing constantly on the channel for 1984 rally which is tomorrow - it shouldnt matter which version is used - what is important is that the message is delivered which it has been. Any more issues, please contact us via our website www.sikhchannel.tv

Thank you.

Sikh Channel

I wasnt arguing over "which" video should be shown.

I was asking why that particular video was not shown? And no reply was given as to stating the reason why?

Im asking in a polite mannor :)

I would ask questions direct at www..sikhchannel..tv but my last message to them there didnt get a reply...so i'll do it here.

If u wish for us not to email the sikh channel in future then let me know and we will not do so. Better that than not bother replying..

I understand the video that had the Sikh Federation (UK) logo added that has been showing in relation to the Remembrance March and Freedom Rally on Sunday 7 June on the Sikh Channel was financially sponsored.

We must all appreciate that if the Sikh Channel is to be free for viewers then most if not all 'ads' will need to be paid for. I think the Sikh Channel did however recognise this was a special event and may have provided the ad at a reduced rate and/or allowed extra showings.

I suspect the issue of 'charging' is a difficult one for the Sikh Channel, but we should be less critical and more supportive.

Enjoyed the actual show about 84, and thought we got a sound knowledge for those who never knew everything, the question about whether or not anyone would move to khalistan is one which always cause controversey ? even the studio guests couldn't commit to the answer and the question about whether or not the current punjab population would want it was another good discussion point. The reality is that whatever happened is the last 25 years has been a sad time for the panth, much of punjab is now patit and into drugs and sharab, plenty of fake babea about... there is a need to do much more parchar there instead of the going on about the mang of khalistan, we need to look at the bigger picture if the khalsa numbers in punjab are decreasing so rapidly and no one will move back there who is khalistan going to be made for ? some soul searching questions for all sikhs.. let us pray the panth can begin to focus on what has been left to rot for the last decade, the youth of punjab, sants like dhadrian vale are doing a great job in giving sikhi back to pinds, let's hope there are more like him.. then one day we may even be able to democratically say the khalsa demands a state, if they did a vote now i don't think we would win, to many non sikhs there !!!

The 8pm discussion was a very informative programme and well handled. It's great to see the potential a Sikh Channel has to offer as we now get a chance to see some real articulate mature views being forward about 1984 and Khalistan. I must admit I was very impressed with Ranjit Singhs Srai's argument and I think Sukhi Bart (the presenter) focused on the right questions and moved the discussion extremely well.

The naujwan presenting the factual part after 10pm was also very informed and the material was well researched.

This new medium available to UK Sikhs will prove to be pivotal in shaping our future decisions. Please keep bringing on these kinds of articulate speakers and not those ancient pendu hot headed babbar/feddy talkers who do not have the skills to discuss or present anything in the 21st Century.

Many thanks

Is it possible that those discussions are posted somewhere online (on the channel website or youtube channel) for people who don't have access to the channel or couldn't watch it?

    • Same lol.   Why can't we post links now?
    • Yeah its coz of the link, I posted a video on the food thread and it said the video has to be approved. I thought I was on quality control, lol. 
    • @ADMIN  @S1ngh Why do my posts have to be approved by a mod now? Is it cause there was a link?
    • I think there are various different reasons for that. One being there are no consequences, which means no boundaries. Around 20 years ago people had to face consequences. With wanting to marry a non-Sikh, you were either disowned by your parents or you were forced to marry someone from a Sikh background. Now there are absolutely no consequences at all.   Much of it is to do with how the religions are practiced and preached. Muslims are constantly reminded of Hell, marrying non-Muslim means going to hell.  You see Sikhi isn't that different in that sense. Bani constantly reminds us of Narak and Dharam raj, and Guru Gobind Singh ji gave strict Hukkam of giving your daughters hand only to a Singh. But, the Sikhi which has been preached and practiced for long is a very wishy-washy Bollywood type of Sikhi.  Around 15 years ago, our community saw an explosion of love marriages, around this time very large numbers of Sikh kids started enrolling into further education, like uni etc   these things bring about cultural changes in immigrant communities, some positive, some negative.  With time, culture changes as well ..   In the old days after anand karaj the "reception party" was basically roti and then everyone went home. Some families used to have singers and dancers perform after the wedding in the house, men were allowed to sit and watch while women were strictly forbidden, so women would peak through the windows or from the roof tops. Years later it became acceptable for women to sit and watch the "entertainment". Eventually the entertainment became reception parties as we see in the west and people in Punjab started copying. Now people are having reception parties in nothing less than 4* venues, spending £100,000s,  we see brides openly drinking and getting drunk.  So you can see how culture changes ...  with this change peoples attitudes change.  Another interesting thing is here in the west the first South Asian community to push boundaries and make taboos acceptable are the Hindus!   then around 5 years later the Westernized, liberal kind of Sikhs copy the Hindus and then a few years later the rest of the community start following. Pakistanis normally catch up around 10 years later.  Its the order ... Homosexuality is now acceptable in the western Hindu community, so many gay Hindus are coming out and having gay mandir weddings and their families are supportive. I know a Gujju girl and her cousin is a lesbian and dating another Hindu lesbian, my friend sent me a photo of them! and both the families have accepted the couple. Currently the Sikh community, on this matter, is in the "debate phase"  give it another few years and it will be acceptable, and it will be the same Westernized, liberal, often successful and pagh wearing Sikhs that will be the first to make gay Sikh marriage acceptable, and then the rest of us will follow. Pakis will catch up around 10 years later.    Even in the paki community I've seen a lot of changes, some of the stuff that they do now wouldn't have been accepted 15 years ago or so. Apostasy among Muslims is on the rise, the women seem to be leading it!  
    • Parent 1. Obviously it depends on the content and the aim of the school. It would be good to have all aspects of Sikhi in one place which has authenticity. No too much pressure for them to learn and churn out material to sit exams. It would be more of quality rather than quantity . 2. Support level , to get a clear understanding what will be taught and the kids and parents expectations right from the beginning. 3. Yes Cost does matter. We have 100's of Gurudawara who should have a budget set aside to invest in the kids and our future generation. So ideas such as this can be researched and developed without thinking about funding. If the cost was reasonable I would pay plus as already mentioned if free its not taken seriously. 4. Self paced is good , but there needs to be a facility where questions can be answered. May be have one or 2 live sessions and the rest self paced.   Sangat 1. Yes there should be tiers , but I think most importantly the material should be authentic. As theres a lot of online material , which ones are good resources , average and bad . 2. May be set up some kind of certification structure for sikhi which over time is recognized and can be used by individuals to train/educate other members of the public. Like many certification courses , they cost but not too much ( starting form £10 plus) The task should be to get as many people doing the online courses as possible, then the price can be low and you will cover your costs. 3.It should be focused to all the public regardless of their background. Made available to businesses ,schools, colleges, universities as part of the establishments diversification program. You have organisations such as Basics of Sikhi , Rajoana TV , Sikh Network etc.. who are doing a brillant job of explaining about sikhi. Tap in to them , make it a collective journey as you may find , they may already have a structure , resources in place , they just need a proper online presence. Reach out to the Sangat who have gyan about Sikhi  via social media and Gurudawara , as there are many Scholars out their. Why is Basics of Sikhi successful , because they keep it simple , easy to understand and follow.  As a parent one of the biggest hurdles for kids is speaking punjabi. Having dialogue with their parents/grandparents . My younger one , hardly speaks punjabi , but what I have found is sikh stories helps a lot. May be have online live sessions where sangat speak punjabi , general punjabi so at least they can particpate in conversations with the elder generation.
