Amitabh Bachchan’S Invitation To Leicester Event Causes Outrage In Uk Sikh Community.


Recommended Posts

a lesson to remember for those who are here only to question Sikhs and Sikhi.

Doesn't matter sir. Tytler says he is a Sikh and his real name is Jagdish Singh Kapoor.

it dont matter to me either Tytler is Scum and so is Bachan.

Yup I heard that as well. He was talking about re-connecting with his Sikh roots a few years back in an interview I read in a newspaper. Make of that what you will.

Smoke screen.

I cant stand Vaz, if i go will be be protesting against him the same amount as Bachan.

He is a bigger financer of uaf which is made up muslim radicals/gangster types and white middle class commies, uaf were contacted bout Sikhs being attacked in Oldbury and they laughed.

Some say Bachans mom is Sikh ??? Maybe Hindu Punjabi ????

well said rebel. why does amitabh quote that his mum is sikh wherever he goes?.... his mums a sikh yet he maintained a close relationship with the ghandis. infact rajiv ghandi brought him into politics in 84 thats how close they were. amitabh flew in to dlehi airport as soon as heard "mata indira" died....if he has nothing to hide why doesnt he show up in court for the charges which have been put against him?

ive also heard that media in the 80s reported the first thing he did on his arrival in delhi was slap a singh in the airport.

the 1984 survivors deserve a voice... they cant raise it in india

these pictures are form facebook.

although amitabh isnt attending, there is going to be a peacefull awarness gathering... consisting of naam jaap etc... sounds great to me... i love this awareness through education plan, seems well thoughtout and organised... amitabh wont be there but his fans and family will, so its great that his part in 84 is being highlighted in a peacefull way... with the media present.

keep this peaceful and leave it to the managers to get the message across. i have contacted seva84 who said that they have educated persons to speak to the media, they want all who attend to partake in naap jaap etc. they will get the message across through literature, and signs (i think)... we should support this... this is an oppertunity to raise awareness and educate the masses... but only if it is kept peaceful and well managed.

i say, give it a shot, go... keep it peaceful, get the message out there.

amnesty internation are involved - how fantstic is that?!

so sikhs killed the prime minister is that not a crime which these bodyguards need to be punished for?

no not punished but rewarded they didnt just kill a prime minister they brought a tyrant to justice

if some hindues killed a sikh leader surely all sikhs would incite their fellow to kill hindus..

that is that type of mentality is the reason why some muslim countries are so messed im a bit disturbed at how readily you used the word "surely" as if that would be the obvious thing to do

**Protest Update**

This is a peaceful awareness protest to educate others about Bachchan’s alleged role in the November 1984 Genocide. Amitabh Bachchan has decided not to attend the event, however other high profile figures will be attending in addition to local and international press.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Re: Amitabh Bachchan

Peaceful Protest Awareness date: Saturday 16th June 2012 5pm-7.30pm

Location: Outside the Platinum Suite, Cobden Street, Leicester, LE1 2LB

Contact: contact@seva84.com

It is alleged by various sources that Amitabh Buchhan incited mobs to kill Sikhs live on Doordarshan TV, India leading up to the November 1984 National Genocide. It is likely Amitabh Bachchan will not be present at the event, however it has been confirmed that his family will be attending the celebrations taking place at the Platinum Suite.

We would like to highlight to all who are planning to attend the peaceful awareness protest that families with children, Press and Bollywood fans will be present at the event in addition to other high profile persons. This must be taken into consideration at all times. Please refrain from aggressive behaviour.

All who attend are required to partake in Naam and Simran. We have allocated spokes-people for the protest who will highlight the allegations put forward and will respond to press on the day. All others who attend are requested to partake in the recitations of Chaupai Sahib, Naam Simran and Mool Mantra taking place.

Further updates will be announced at www.facebook.com/seva1984

Normally protests include chanting slogans so as to educate and inform both media and the public attending?

Protests can take many different forms.

Silent protests are uncommon but have been successful in the past with other communities. The public will be informed through flyers, placards and assigned spokes-men.

As it is probable that Amitabh will not be attending, there is no need to be shouting slogans. We are using this opportunity to get a message across... not many people know about the 1984 November Genocide, and even fewer know about the extent of the massacre and government involvement. We are using this as an opportunity to educate. We cannot educate if sangat are shouting slogans.

As Amitabh's fans, family and media will be present, as well as national and international press this is an excellent opportunity to highlight Amitabh’s alleged role in the unknown 1984 November Genocide where voting lists were used to identify Sikh homes which were then marked in red. Sikhs of all ages across India were hacked to pieces, burnt alive, raped and killed. Sikh owned homes and business were burnt to the ground and those that were expected to protect the Sikhs either turned a blind eye or were actively involved. The only TV (Doordarshan) and Radio (All India Radio) stations were government owned and did not report the killings of Sikhs that was taking place across India. Rather the opposite, they spread rumours that Sikhs were killing Hindus - which were all unfounded. After the genocide, there was a strong awareness that killings had taken place across India, so the government decided to dub these events as "Delhi Riots". This term was a deliberate attempt to play down the face that this was in fact a planned Genocide. The killings were not just limited to just Delhi, and a Riot is a conflict that takes place between two communities... It was only Gurdwaras that were razed to the ground... no mandir, church, or masjid was touched by the so called "rioters". This was a pre planned genocide to wipe out the Sikhs in India. This is why the term “Delhi Riots” should not be used. The Nanavati commission recognises that voting lists were used to identify Sikh homes.

Several eye witnesses have made claims that Amitabh Bachchan (a close friend of Rajiv Ghandi) was the first to incite the killings of Sikhs. Despite this, the Delhi High Courts refuse to take any action.

What's the Leicester Gurdwara Committees' take on the Keith Vaz event? I assume some of them will be attending or leading the Panthic protest for justice?

I haven't heard much come put of the Leicester prabhandaks...they usually shout loud Khalistan Zindabad naras

From a conversation with Keith Vaz office, I have been made aware that the local Gurdwara represantatives are attending the party. Vaz office were never advised by any of the high profile Sikh invitees about Amitabh and the incitement of mobs in 1984. The Leicester Sikh reps are still planning to attend the party as Vaz "works closely with Sikh community".

Anyone from Leicester Gurdwaras want to comment?

Thanks

Well, isn't there a statute of limitations on crimes? So they probably can't try him now anyway

**Peaceful Protest against Amitabh Bachchan Cancelled**

It has been confirmed by both the police and Keith Vaz that Amitabh Bachchan will not be attending the Platinum Suite in Leicester on Saturday 16th June 2012. All organisers of the peaceful protest / awareness rally have agreed to cancel.

When alleged leaders of genocide arrive in foreign lands, it is the duty of the sangat and citizens of the country to raise a united voice and send out a firm message that we will not turn a blind eye.

We sincerely thank the hundreds of Sikhs who confirmed their attendance, and we rely upon your readiness and support should a matter of urgency arise in the future.

Please spread the message far and wide, the planned protest will no longer be taking place.

    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-59524527 Italian man tries to dodge Covid jab using fake arm Published 16 hours ago An Italian man who wanted a Covid vaccination certificate without getting the jab turned up for his vaccine with a fake arm, officials say. The man, in his 50s, arrived for his shot with a silicone mould covering his real arm, hoping it would go unnoticed. But a nurse was not fooled and the man has now been reported to the police. The nurse told local media that when she had rolled up his sleeve, she found the skin "rubbery and cold" and the pigment "too light". After being discovered, the man tried to persuade the nurse to turn a blind eye, la Repubblica reported. But instead she reported him to the police for fraud. Local police are now investigating the incident in Biella, north-west Italy, and local officials have criticised the man's actions. "The case borders on the ridiculous, if it were not for the fact we are talking about a gesture of enormous gravity," the head of the Piedmont regional government, Albert Cirio, said in a statement on Facebook. He said the ploy was "unacceptable faced with the sacrifice that our entire community has paid during the pandemic, in terms of human lives, the social and economic cost". The man was reportedly a health worker who had been suspended from his job because he had not been vaccinated. The jab is mandatory for all health workers in Italy. La Repubblica suggests the incident may not have been a one-off, pointing to a message on social media that may have been written by the man. The Twitter post quoted by the paper featured a silicone male chest half-body suit, complete with fake arms and neck, that was on sale on Amazon for €488 (£416). "If I go with this, will they notice? Maybe beneath the silicone I'll even put on some extra clothes to avoid the needle reaching my real arm," the Twitter user reportedly wrote. The incident comes ahead of a tightening of the rules in Italy for those who have not been vaccinated. Since August, Italians have needed a Covid "green pass" - showing proof of vaccination, a negative test or recovery from the virus - to access train stations, cinemas, restaurants, gyms and swimming pools. But from Monday, these activities will be restricted to those with a "super green pass", which is only available to those who have been vaccinated or recently recovered from Covid.
    • Some Positive news - I think Biharis in Punjab have a much higher prevalence of smoking. Does this correlate with a lower Bihari population in Punjab now ? I think Sikhs hardly smoke (but do alcohol and drugs)   https://www.thestatesman.com/cities/chandigarh/punjab-registers-lowest-tobacco-use-prevalence-per-nfhs-5-soni-1503027399.html Punjab registers lowest Tobacco use prevalence as per NFHS-5: Soni   Several studies have shown that it could make a person more vulnerable to the novel coronavirus diseases, he added. SNS | Chandigarh | November 29, 2021 9:27 pm Punjab has secured a place in the lowest tobacco use prevalence as per the latest National Family Health Survey (NFHS-5) data. Disclosing this on Monday, Deputy Chief Minister OP Soni, who also holds the charge of Punjab health and family welfare minister, said as per the latest National Family Health Survey (NFHS-5) data released by the Union ministry of health and family welfare, the prevalence of tobacco use in Punjab is now lowest among all the states in the country. Tobacco use in Punjab among males of 15 years and older has declined from 19.2 per cent (NFHS-4) to 12.9 per cent (NFHS-5) in the last five years. Punjab is also on top amongst all the states and Union Territories (UTs) in the prevalence of tobacco use in females older than 15 stands at just 0.6 per cent.

Events since then made it impossible to stay off politics.   Nirmaljeet Singh (his social media name is Angadh Singh Khalsa). Photo: Shakir Mir Shakir Mir           COMMUNALISM GOVERNMENT RELIGION RIGHTS 30/NOV/2021   Srinagar: The video is grainy, shot seemingly outside the gurdwara near Amira Kadal, a bustling commercial enclave off Jhelum river in Srinagar. Twenty-one-year-old Nirmaljeet Singh (popular by his social media name ‘Angadh Singh Khalsa’) is lounging by the roadside when a Kashmiri woman, dressed in loose black garment, approaches him. “Mashallah, your speech from yesterday was very nice,” she remarks jovially. “We were watching. God bless you with eternal success. You are fighting for the truth.” Streets were not the only venue where he became the subject of adoration. “#Salute #Respect,” wrote one user on Twitter, sharing a picture of Singh. “Much love and respect to @ASKhalsa84 bhai,” posted another, mentioning his Twitter handle. There were similar updates on Facebook as well as Instagram. This month, tempers have flared in Kashmir Valley again. Two weeks ago, police said they carried out an anti-militancy operation at Hyderpora near highway in Srinagar in which a militant, his associate and two civilians were killed. The deaths have sparked outrage, with the families of two slain civilians alleging that the police recklessly forced their kin to participate in the operation. It appears that the civilians may have attempted – upon whose instructions it is not clear – to unlock the rooms where a purported Pakistani militant was hiding.
    • https://theprint.in/india/how-christianity-is-growing-among-mazhabi-sikhs-valmiki-hindus-in-punjabs-villages/775047/ How Christianity is growing among Mazhabi Sikhs & Valmiki Hindus in Punjab’s villages Christianity is growing in Punjab, mirroring what states like Tamil Nadu experienced in the 1980s and 1990s. Small churches are springing up on the rooftops of many villages. SHUBHANGI MISRA 2 December, 2021 10:44 am IST A Catholic church in Fatehgarh Churian, Gurdaspur | Shubhangi Misra | ThePrint Amritsar/Gurdaspur: Atop a roof in an obscure gully in Fatehgarh Churian, a Pentecostal church is in full swing. “Rabba rabba rabba rabba, pita parmeshwar teri aatma rahe… rabba rabba rabba rabba rabba…” a young boy raps into the mic, boosted to its maximum volume, adding to the trippy and eerie mood. The pastor places his hand on the heads of disciples as they shake violently. Some faint, others cry. But all are waiting for a miracle.  Christianity is growing in Punjab, mirroring what states like Tamil Nadu experienced in the 1980s and 1990s. Small churches are springing up on the rooftops of many villages in Gurdaspur. Tired of centuries of casteism and systemic oppression, many Dalits, belonging to the Mazhabi Sikh and Valmiki Hindu communities living in Punjab’s border belt, have started looking to Christianity in the hope of a dignified life and access to better education.
