Sikhs At Downing Street Today


Recommended Posts

Shame that the maintstream media did not report on the demo..

Can someone enlighten me please..What actually happened at the demo, did our Sikh representatives get to meet the PM or enter No 10? Because from where I was all we seemed to have done was stood around, ate some langar, hear all these plump prabhandaks blow their own trumpets on stage and watch a Sikh Channel self promotion exercise taking place....

Apologies for my ignorance and annoyance but did we actually get a message to the UAE govt (as there is no media report on the demo whatsoever), any feedback about the 17 Sikhs?? I am not interested in any feedback on who came from where or how many coaches came down or Sikh channel direct debit forms...

Shows how influential a Sikh media TV channel is... I do agree with mala though...i sort of felt a lack of collective panthic focus on us being there and I certainly did not see any petition being distributed...just saw beant direct debit forms for Sikh Channel being given..and in a way I cant help thinking it might have ended up as more of a Sikh channel promotion excercise..I hope not!!!

We didnt make any press stories, not in India, not in Dubai and not in UK....again we keep screwing up on that...so lets wait and see if we helped the 17 Sikhs in Dubai...

The turnout was at least better than the that of the Kamal Nath protest.

Well i'm glad that there was a good turnout - roughly how many sangattan turned up?

Around 3,000 I'd say... A good mix of elders, naujwaan, bibya and kids...From that perspective it was uplifting to see a diverse sangat turnout...

WEll we only heard of it on sikhchannel they had a live broadcast but no cameras which i thought thy would have, they had a live call in from downing street, apparently from wat we could hear that 5 sikhs handed in th petition to 10 downing street, and th turnout was good, like 2mile stretch, people were doing chaupai sahibji da path and simran, and u could hear it in th bakground.

But wish it had come on mainstream media, we were lookin on bbc or sky, and nothin, its funny how little things like billi nu kidnap karlea, £1000 reward, eh woh ajanda but they dont put anythin like this on th news.

Sikh Times seems to be reporting that 20,000 attended...i'm assuming that is a grosse exaggeration

As Sikh Channel are able to reach Sikhs up and down the country like never before - i congratulate Sikh Channel for their efforts in help of the 17 Sikhs in Dubai.

Will Sikh Channel also be arranging protests for Gursikhs such as Prof Davinder Singh Bhullar and Jagtar Singh Hawara who are also on deathrow? Will Sikh Channel be putting the same effort in supporting the June rally that is in less than a month to ensure there is an even larger turnout?

20,000? Why do our media find the need to exagerate...it only makes us look foolish..unless I missed an area of the demo where a futher 17,000 had gathered...

I too am hoping that this network formed by Sikh Channel will take on more issues and demos....time will tell us if this was simply a one-off self promotion exercise or a new wave!!

We can only hope that the 17 Sikhs & their families find out that we went down as a Jatha to Downing St and are trying to help them...therefore raising their spirits..I hope that news gets to them at the least

Are the 17 in Dubai or Sharjah. If the latter, this is part of the UAE, as is Dubai (i.e. not part of Dubai but independant).

If in Sharjah, this is ruled by Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi of the Supreme Council of the UAE and Sheikh of Sharjah.

Letters or e-mails should be sent to the Sheikh. This shows Lack of research, but focus on getting 'balle balla''

Protest was good in that it got the Sikh togther, but campaigns have to based on actual facts and reserach done, so that a campaign strategy can be developed. Also one that is not in isolation to other campiagns for the same cause, i.e. In India for the 17 so that resources are pooled togther and coherent messages are communicated to the Media and other stakeholders.

This was expected.

The Kamal Nath protest was during the week, not pushed in the same way by the Sikh Channel or Gurdwaras. Therefore it was for those really committed and able to spare the time!

However, the Kamal Nath protest got instant results and a VICTORY for Sikhs.

Time will tell if the time and effort that went into the protest for the 17 young Sikh workers on Sunday will save the lives of the 17.

The Sikh Times simply used a Press Release issued by Jagdeesh Singh (SCAN) from Slough that he put out for the non-Sikh media prior to the event. Central TV cameras were present - not sure if they showed anything on the news - perhaps those living in the Midlands could confirm.

Several thousand would have been more accurate.

Mainstream media may also have been reluctant to cover the event as they may have concluded it was organised by a media competitor.

The Sikh Channel has publicly committed to promote the Remembrance March & Freedom Rally on Sunday 13 June in the same way.

In due course it would be good if as many Gurdwaras as possible give names and telephone numbers and confirm coaches have been arranged.

In particular all Gurdwaras that organised coaches for the 17 Sikhs should be encouraged to arrange coaches for the 13 June.

The issue finally will always come to our inability to defend our people because we do not have out own state.

We need our country in whcih we will have our own Foriegn Office and Embassies around the world to apply pressure in such situations.

If we had our own country, it would have taken our Foriegn Office 1 Email to all Embassies around the world to approach the UAE Embassies in their respective countries to details with this case. We could have pull in the UAE High Commissioner in Our Country for Questioning on details of the case.

In extreme cases, we could close our Embassy or cancel certain Corporate deals.

Total Independence is the only slogan.

    • Lol. Way to be late to the party there Ravi. 
    • The liberal mafia attacking Amaan Baali because he committed the ultimate sin of standing up for the Sikh community in Kashmir and told the truth of the grooming of Sikh girls. Let's look at the background of these liberals who are now attacking Amaan. Monica Gill - failed model latched on to the Farmers agitation in order to gain more exposure and credibility. On the grooming of the Sikh girls in Kashmir she was solidly on the side of the paedophiles. She promoted the Quint narrative that the Sikh girl was an adult even when the paedophile admitted that he had started to target her when she was 12/13. Her sister apparently 'researched' the grooming of Sikh girls in Kashmir and found 'no evidence'!  Ravi Singh KA - we all know about him and his liberal agenda and his main focus on using the Panth's money to help our enemies and gain him a Nobel prize.  This Angadh Singh Khalsa guy - another liberal mupp.et using the Sikh identity to further the cause of the Jihadis. here's an article about him- his main claim to fame- being a dhimmi and helping in the Kashmiri plan to turn Kashmir into an Islamic state like Afghanistan. What could possibly go wrong for Kashmiri Sikhs when that happens? His views on the grooming of Sikhs - he is 'nuanced'! How Kashmir's Fraught Political Journey Led a Young Sikh Man Into Activism (thewire.in) You can judge the value of a person to the Panth by knowing the background of the people  who are attacking him.       
    • Is that Surrinder Shinda in the video?
    • There is a new Muslim bhangra singer from UK called Raf Saperra. Not only has he made a music video where he is lusting after and flirting with a Sikh girl who has a prominently displayed kada, but the song has been produced by so called Sikh Sukhshinder Shinda and the background of the video is full of so called Sikhs wearing kaday, egging on the Muslim singer to flirt with the Sikh girl and sing about her lustfully. Astonishingly there is an old Baba with a long white dhari and white dastaar in the video as well.  I have not seen one comment on the YouTube page that is concerned about this. I have also noticed that as part of his image in general this singer has avoided highlighting he is a Muslim, only reluctantly alluding to being from West Pakistan during an interview when asked.  Instead our so called Sikh people are all backing him up and featuring in his videos wearing huge kaday while holding alcohol bottles. There is a blurring of lines here with regards to identity which is normally used by this group to take advantage of our people. Our own people are stupidly helping this cause.   There are a few of his bhangra videos which also feature smoking (Muslim Pakistani  culture) which will probably confuse Apne thickos into thinking this is now a normal part of our own culture. They are making bhangra videos without making it clear they are Muslims and subtly putting their own culture into it. What has happened to these people's zameer?   This is the video.
