Regarding Grooming Program: Sas & Sangat Tv

Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa,

Dear Sadh Sangat Ji,

There seems to be a lot of rumours and finger pointing going on over the last few days.

We would like to make a few things clear:

We have only the utmost respect for Sangat Trust and all Sewadars involved in the betterment of our Community.

The filming was sponsored, sanctioned, filmed and edited by members of Sangat TV crew.

The SAS did not at any stage bypass the normal procedure for the "Sangat Awareness Show" to be aired.

Any sensationalised Text Message did not originate from the SAS.

The filming was done in a responsible manner as to not provoke any negative reaction.

We accepted Sangat TV's decision to cancel the show and reported it as such, as a cancellation, without speculations to the reasons why.

We accept this to be a error of communication and look forward to working and supporting the Sangat Trust in future.

Please be aware that Sunday 22nd Jan Shows on Panjab radio and Sikh Channel was Not represented by members of the SAS.

We were told that the shows will cover grooming from a youth perspective, but we had no representatives on the show, nor were the guest aware of any details of the case in question.

We would urge the youth to work responsibly and collectively towards highlighting the problems at hand, without sensationalism, finger-pointing and spreading rumours.

Please can any media who wish to have a SAS representative kindly first contact us @ sas.helpline@googlemail.com

Guru Paryaree Sadh Sangat,

It is with great regret we announce that tonight's show has been cancelled.

The show was the culmination of a 3 year ordeal of a once happy Sikh family who's world fell apart when they lost their child to grooming.

The recording was done over 4 weeks going into great personal detail, which took an enormous amount of courage from the family. They did this for one reason and one reason only; in the hope it may protect someone else's child.

Sangat TV had sponsored, recorded and edited the show.

The show received enormous publicity though SMS, Facebook and other social media.

4 hours before the show was due to air, Sangat TV decided to cancel the program.

Sikh Awareness Society (SAS) made it clear the program was clearly inline with ofcom rules and there was nothing questionable in it's contents.

SAS will endeavour to bring you this program via an alternative route within the next few weeks.

Our sincere gratitude to the family who allowed filming during a deeply traumatic period in their lives.

We thank those who helped publicise this program and will notify the Sangat with an alternative time for airing.

^^^^^^the above was posted by SAS when you found out that sangat tv cancelled your show. WHY THE SUDDEN CHANGE OF ATTITUDE? the first post it seemed as though you were shocked and offended by what sangat tv had done, and now you STILL want to work with them????!!!

How can you even think about working with the same people again after they went back on thier word?

I suggest you choose the people that you work with very carefully; here it is clear that sangat trust has broken the trust between them and the sangat. The general public are disgusted with what sangat tv done. Sangat trust does not seem to have any regards for sikhi or even any pyar for sikhi they are simply using ‘sikhi’ as a revenue tool to see how much money they can make.

They absolutely flopped it during the time of the riots by becoming a muslim community channel for a short while. Indecently I would not be surprised if Sangat trust was paid off by certain muslim leaders not to show the programme………….

Anyway SAS please stop being hypocritical like sangat tv! By teaming with sangat tv you will not get anywhere as they are full of cow dung.
