I understand why you have stated points 1 - 5, which she is against. However, why do you need to highlight the fact she supports a mosque which will be the same size as the Gurdwara Sahib on soho road. So what all religions deserve a place to worship. I feel you need to concentrate on the points she is against which will have more voters aware of her flaws. But you say supporting the building of a mosque is a bad thing, end of the day it also is a placeof worship and makes you seem like it's ok for us to have a big Gurdwara Sahib, but not ok for others. It makes you seem prejudice.

Hypothetical scenario. White area with some Sikhs. How would you feel if it was BNP saying the candidate well shes against Christian schools, voted against st. Georges day celebrations, Christmas decorations in town, voted against christian scout groups, BUT she supports Sikhs who are planning to build a Gurdwara sahib as big as the church in the area.

Basically highlight her flaws but no need to highlight her supporting other religions as a bad thing.

As Guru ji said 'recognise all humankind as one'.

The points are highlighting her favourable stance towards the muslim community and neglecting the others in this constituency. A politician should not support one group but support all in their constituency. In an area like handsworth wood the majority of people that live there are Sikhs or people of Indian origin so why do we need a mosque there?

There are already plenty if mosques, gurdwaras, churches in the area so there is no need for another place of worship in the area.

@ Mental Singh – I would never vote Labour, it's under themwe saw the Islamising of UK, it's under them Pakistani Pimping gangs have roamed the Country.

Who the Labour candidate in the ward??

@ Gurdssingh - The Non Muslims in this area don't want see any more Mosques, its one the few areas in Birmingham that is not Ismalified ona high level.

If you want to go live in areas where there Mosques go to small heath, alumrock my friend and see how the people you are standing up for treat you.

If you not from Handsworth wood or Handsworth you have no right to advocate for mosques, I think you tucked up in some middle class area, thinking diversity is great its not.

Like said plenty of areas for you with Mosques already go live there seewhat you get.

The point I wanted to make was highlight her flaws i.e. points 1-5. What is the need to bring negativity it into, by marking out she supports the building of a mosque (place of worship).

My friend its about being a good human being, Guru Tegh Bhahdur Ji stood up for and gave his head for the right for hindu pandits, how are hindus in India treating Sikhs?

Also if theres no muslims in the area why are they intending to build a big mosque? So either there are muslims in the area or there building a big mosque which no one will go to because they must have a bit of spare cash lying around?

Also theres loads of Indian muslims, just visit leicester. I think population wise worldwide india is like second or third for number of muslims.

Also if its mainly sikhs inthe area and she dont look out for them when she aint a good poitician and wont win. no politician really cares for their constituents just their votes.

    • This. It's a lot more than this as well, military strategies, intel networks, manipulating narratives, decision making -  just for a start.   If you can perceive some of these things you're blessed more than most people who read it all the time on a surface literal level. 
    • Afghanistan’s last Sikhs in a dilemma: To stay or leave Community leaders estimate just 140 Sikhs remain in the Taliban-ruled country, mostly in the eastern city of Jalalabad and capital Kabul. An Afghan Sikh priest praying at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] Published On 20 Jan 202220 Jan 2022   The caretaker of Kabul’s last Sikh temple stands looking at the cavernous hall where throngs once gathered in worship. Only a handful are left now. “Afghanistan is our country, our homeland,” said Gurnam Singh. “But we are leaving out of sheer hopelessness.” In the 1970s, Afghanistan’s Sikh population numbered 100,000, but decades of conflict, poverty and intolerance have driven almost all of them into exile. The Soviet occupation, subsequent Taliban regime and bloody military intervention by the United States winnowed their numbers to just 240 last year, according to figures kept by the community. After the Taliban returned to power in August, opening the newest chapter in Afghanistan’s dark history, a fresh wave of Sikhs fled the country. Today, Gurnam Singh estimates just 140 remain, mostly in the eastern city of Jalalabad and in Kabul. An Afghan Sikh priest carrying the Guru Granth Sahib at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] Some of the remaining devotees trickle into the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple to pray on a recent wintry morning. Men stand to one side, women to the other – about 15 people in total. Sitting barefoot on a floor covered with thick red rugs, they warm themselves around stoves and listen to a recitation from the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh holy book. In November, the temple had three copies, but two have since been sent to New Delhi for “safekeeping”. Poverty is rife among Afghan Sikhs, and attacks by the Afghan chapter of the ISIL (ISIS) armed group are a real threat. The overwhelming majority of Sikhs fleeing Afghanistan have landed in India, where 90 percent of the religion’s 25 million global adherents live, mainly in the northwest region of Punjab. Since the Taliban takeover, India has offered exiled Sikhs priority visas and the opportunity to apply for long-term residency. There is no sign yet that citizenship is on the table. Pharmacist Manjit Singh, 40, is among those who turned down the offer, despite his daughter having emigrated there with her new husband last year. “What would I do in India?” he asked. “There is no job or house there.” Among the remaining holdouts, the prospect of leaving is particularly wrenching: it would mean abandoning their spiritual home. “When this gurdwara was built 60 years ago, the whole area was full of Sikhs,” said 60-year-old community elder Manmohan Singh. “Whatever joy or sorrow we felt, we shared it here.” A priest praying at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] From the outside, the temple is largely indistinguishable from other buildings on the street. But security here is markedly high, with body searches, ID checks and two fortified doors. In early October, unidentified gunmen forced their way inside and vandalised the sacred space. The incident had ugly echoes of the most scarring attack on the Afghan Sikh community. In March 2020, members of ISIL assaulted the Gurdwara Har Rai Sahib in Shor Bazar, a former enclave of Kabul’s Sikh community, killing 25. Since the attack, that temple – and the nearby Dharamshala Gurdwara, the capital’s oldest Sikh house of worship at an estimated 500 years – have been abandoned. Parmajeet Kaur was struck by shrapnel in her left eye during the attack, and her sister was among those killed. In the weeks that followed, Kaur packed her bags and headed for New Delhi, but “we had no work and it was expensive, so we came back”, she said. That was in July, a few weeks before the Taliban returned to power. Now Kaur, her husband and three children are fed and housed by Karte Parwan Gurdwara. Her children do not go to school, and Kaur never ventures beyond the walls of the temple, the only place where she feels safe. She thinks about leaving again, this time for Canada or the US. “My son and daughters are still small,” she said. “If we leave, we can make something of our lives.”
