Why Is Sikh Channel Not Supporting Protest Outside Indian High Commission In Support Of Balwant Singh

Recommended Posts

Why is Sikh Channel not supporting the protest outside the Indian High Commission in London on 20 March in support of Balwant Singh?

There has been no advertising, nothing on the scroll or any meaningful coverage on the various shows on the Sikh Channel.

There have however been some who support Badal that have used Sikh Channel to condemn the protest !

Will the Sikh Channel come along tomorrow to cover the protest?

Sikh Channel needs to cover it. With all due respect to the Sangat Tv Babay, no one under 65 seems to watch Sangat Tv anymore and technically Sangat Tv's broadcast limitations won't give the protest the profile and justice it deserves. I hope Sikh Channel cover it, it will get the social media coverage too and hit a much wider global Sikh audience

This might be a presumption on my part but this better not end up becoming another Jathebhandi Vs Sikh Channel masla where both boycott each others programmes. We just about got over the Dastaar Day fiasco of 2011...

i thought balwant singh rajoana being hung was a good thing? coz a) he himself doesnt want pardon from hanging, b) a shaheed never shys away from execution, etc. im confused do we want his hanging, or r we sayin its better he stays alive?

thoughts please

Sikh Channel have been asked to do promos, put things on the scroll and shows to cover the protest today.

Hope both channels will also cover the protest outside the European Parliament in Brussels on Wednesday 28 March from 1 to 3pm.

Sikh Channel is the peoples channel and panthic jathebandis are not part of Sikh people, so they did not advertise, but turned up at the Demo to save face.

The Media is not playing a sensible and responsible role, they are dividing the Sikhs and giving an impression that the Sikhs are not co-ordinated nor unified.

I would think that the Demo/protest proved that this is not the case. Similar protests in other countries, letters to politicians (with coherent messages), demo outside European Parliament Brussels all happening shows a lack of unity and cordination, l forget the only problem is that it was the panthic jathebandis doing their job and not Sikh Channel and especially DS Bal leading, so it cannot be shown that, yes Sikhs can work together.

Sikh Channel turned up today when they realised it was a massive success! Both channels need to work with the Panth's interest at heart rather than petty squabbles over who is affiliated with who. Agree that they need to move on from the Dastar Day Fiasco.

The Sangat showed yet again today its amazing presence. Brought Aldwych area to a massive standstill.

Its great to see both channels covered the protest. Well done to Sikh Channel.

Please can everyone dedicate their main photo on facebook or whatever social media to Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana. Also maybe copy in the below text as your status.

During the 1990s, the then chief minister of Punjab, Beant Singh, was responsible for the mass genocide of young Sikh men across Punjab.

Balwant Singh Rajoana could bear the carnage no longer. In August the Chief Minister's car was blown up and the minister killed.

As a result the number of killings dropped dramatically overnight.

Rajoana accepted his guilt and has spent the last 17 years in jail. He is due to be executed on the 31st of March.

If this happens he will be the first person to be hung in Punjab in over 20 years!

Rajoana gave up his life so that the lives of tens of thousands of others could be spared. His mother shed countless tears over 17 years so that thousands of mothers would not have to.

Please change your fb photo to a photo of Rajoana to show your opposition to his death penalty.

Please take a few seconds to show that this huge act of human compassion has touched your heart.

true and not that am for the protests (personal view) but who ever has done this has done it on the hoof and it needs much more media attention .. people should be posting facebook messages .. text messages (still to get one about friday- which is strange) etc ... currently the only info ive heard about it has been on sikhsangat .... if only a handfull of people turn up it would be a shame
