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.

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 ????

i think it dont matter bowt there backgrounds, apnay ppl will do anything for personal gains, sumedh saini, panjab police, kp gill etc all gandeh bandeh who have killed their own in mass numbers, then u have asad of syria, gadaffi of libya, saddam hussein of iraq ALL killed their own religion folk.

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

Great work by Leicestershire Sikh Alliance

**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.

    • They've been trying to find any excuse to enact a law like this, it's already being called out that the murder of David Amess's death had nothing to do with online abuse, just when you think the Tories couldn't reach a new low they try and pull some crap like this and use the death of an MP as an excuse.
    • Bhai ji I don't think there is anything like a 'fail proof concept' in business. Random stuff (like say Covid for example) can take some businesses out suddenly, and conversely they can be a life saver to others (i.e. PPE manufacturers, online suppliers who get stuff to you in lock downs being in extra demand).  The best way to survive I guess is to have diverse income streams so if one dries up, the others still bring in the bacon. The business environment can be very fluid, and sometimes even a little thing can cause a massive difference.  Example: One cafe I know was doing okay, but then they hired this really pretty, friendly women as a waitress. Business shot up big time because of her for a year or two. Then she had kids and moved away, the business decreased. lol   
    • I miss my best pal. I was desolate when he passed away for quite a while (a few years!). Time (I found) does heal and attenuate the intensity of pain.  The busier you keep yourself, and thus from thinking about it, the better. You can't be stuck in constant grieving mode. The grief is heavily psychological, and you have to use a variety of tricks to focus elsewhere. Training helps. Keeping busy (as mentioned previously) helps. Hobbies help. Supportive friends who don't indulge you in excessive emotionality help. If you're going to mope about it for years, then you're not doing yourself any favours. You have to want to get over it, and not indulge in excessive emotionality after a while.  Even then, something will happen that brings them back to mind. But you have to keep moving. When the sun's out I always remember him, and what we'd get up to. I go past a place we used to go to (like a restaurant) and up he pops in my mind. But he's gone somewhere else now, and I'm here, and I have to deal with my own issues now. You have to be tough minded.  Try CBD btw.  
    • that sau sakhi tale is based on Guru Gobind Sigh's bachan after Singh was carried off battlefield unconcious and  injured by Musley and they cut his kesh and tried to convert him: bytrying to feed him  Halal Meat (please note those who think nothing of eating meat in 'halal friendly' eateries ) , doing sunat (circumcision) , reading shahada and even marrying/offering a muslim woman to him. Because he did not take the last option up Guru ji said he was NOT a muslim and could do pesh and rejoin his sikh bretheren.
    • https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/oct/18/pm-urged-to-enact-davids-law-against-social-media-abuse-after-amesss-death   Potentially an attack on our online freedoms. IF, this includes forums such as these, I will be very reluctant to post again   PM urged to enact ‘David’s law’ against social media abuse after Amess’s death Calls for crackdown on threats to public figures and an end to online anonymity   A notice keeps David Amess’s seat in the Commons free. Photograph: Jessica Taylor/AP   Jessica Elgot Chief political correspondent @jessicaelgot Mon 18 Oct 2021 19.59 BST             Boris Johnson is facing calls to enact “David’s law” to crack down on social media abuse of public figures and end online anonymity in the wake of the killing of Sir David Amess. Dozens of MPs paid tribute in the House of Commons on Monday to the veteran Conservative backbencher who was stabbed to death on Friday, shedding tears, sharing uproarious anecdotes and venting anger over his death.   While police are investigating whether there are any links to Islamist extremism and have not connected the killing to the targeting of MPs online, allies of Amess said he had voiced growing concern about threats and toxicity within public discourse as they demanded a crackdown. Campaigners have warned, however, that ending online anonymity could put whistleblowers and pro-democracy campaigners in authoritarian regimes at risk. Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, told the Commons that “civility in politics matters” but “we must not lose sight of the fact that David’s killing was an [alleged] act of terror on the streets of our country”. Mark Francois, who described Amess as one of his closest friends and his political mentor, vowed he would dedicate his time in parliament to overhauling the rules governing social media. Francois told the Commons he was “minded to drag Mark Zuckerberg [CEO of Facebook] and Jack Dorsey [CEO of Twitter] to the bar of the house … if necessary kicking and screaming so they can look us all in the eye and account for their actions or rather their inactions that make them even richer than they already are”. He said MPs should radically toughen up the pending online harms bill to prevent trolls and other abusers hiding behind pseudonyms. “In the last few years David had become increasingly concerned about what he called the toxic environment in which MPs, particularly female MPs, were having to operate in,” Francois said. “He was appalled by what he called the vile misogynistic abuse which female MPs had to endure online and he told me very recently that he wanted something done about it.”   A man understood to be Ali Harbi Ali is filmed on CCTV walking down a north London street last Friday. Photograph: Sky News Francois, the MP for Rayleigh and Wickford, which neighbours Amess’s Southend West constituency, added: “I suggest that if we want to ensure that our colleague didn’t die in vain, we collectively all of us pick up the baton, regardless of our party and take the forthcoming online harms bill and toughen it up markedly. “Let’s put, if I may be so presumptuous, David’s law on to the statute book, the essence of which would be that while people in public life must remain open to legitimate criticism, they can no longer be vilified or their families subject to the most horrendous abuse, especially from people who hide behind a cloak of anonymity with the connivance of the social media companies for profit.” Bernard Jenkin said MPs should also examine themselves when discussing civility in politics, a nod to some of the disturbing language used during Brexit debates. “Which of us has never felt fallen prey to feelings of contempt or lack of respect or unkindness towards those who oppose us? Which of us can honestly say we cannot do better?” He said kindness should be added to the seven principles of public life. “Henceforth, let kindness be known as the David Amess principle of public life.” Amess, an MP for 38 of his 69 years, was stabbed to death while holding his constituency surgery in an Essex church. Ali Harbi Ali, 25, was arrested at the scene and continues to be detained under terrorism laws. The government intends to pass an online safety bill introducing new obligations on social media companies to regulate illegal and harmful material – though there has been significant controversy over how that can be defined. Compliance will be monitored by Ofcom and the bill is expected to start its passage after pre-legislative scrutiny set to report back in early December. Paying tribute to “one of the nicest, kindest and most gentle individuals ever to grace these benches”, Johnson said Amess’s killing struck at the heart of the ordinary democratic work of MPs. “That Sir David spent almost 40 years in this house but not one day in ministerial office tells everything about where his priorities lay,” he said. “He was not a man in awe of this chamber, nor a man who sought patronage or advancement. He simply wanted to serve the people of Essex, first in Basildon, then in Southend. And it was in the act of serving his constituents that he was so cruelly killed.” Starmer said: “Even as a political opponent he was a man and a politician we could all learn much from. I use that phrase – ‘political opponent’ – very deliberately. Because David held his beliefs passionately but gently. I believe that not only can we learn from that but that we have a duty to do so. Civility in politics matters.” Starmer spoke to the parents of Jo Cox, the Labour MP murdered by a far-right terrorist in 2016, on Friday, he said. “I knew they would be reliving that terrible day. They said to me they were thinking of David’s family and how their lives would be changed forever,” he said. Cox’s widower, Brendan Cox, also said it was a moment to reflect on political discourse and a “day-to-day brutality with which our political debate is conducted, from increasingly regular death threats to online abuse”. The police team convened after his wife’s murder to investigate threats against MPs found 582 reports of malicious communications and handled 46 cases of harassment between 2016 and 2020, he said. Nine cases were classified as terrorism-related.
