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.

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

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.

    • I meant the anglo saxons to be clear. 
    • Even then, quite a few older whites who've been going Spain every years for God knows how long, want to retire there. Cheaper living, the sun, less foreigners (they have their own enclaves) etc.  Whereas a working class english here will tell a spaniard to 'f**k off back your country bozo' the spanish are economically dependent on these lot, and don't tell them the same over there.

Billy Hood from Notting Hill, west London, was arrested on 31 January, shortly after moving to the country. The 24-year-old claims he was forced to sign a confession written in Arabic despite not speaking the language. The Foreign Office said it was "giving consular support to a British man who has been imprisoned" in Dubai. Mr Hood, who played semi-professional football for Kensington and Ealing Borough FC, told campaign group Detained in Dubai police had unexpectedly turned up and demanded to search his home and car. He told the group he was taken to a "police station and kept in an isolation cell for 14 days without any hygiene products". Mr Hood claimed the oil was left by a friend who had been visiting from England two weeks earlier. But he claimed he was forced to sign a confession after being pressured by local law enforcement. This month he was convicted by a court of drug trafficking with intent to supply. Vaping cannabidiol (CBD) oil is legal in the UK and has become extremely popular - typically used to relieve pain, anxiety or stress. The Foreign Office advise there is a "zero-tolerance for drugs-related offences" in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). "Forced and coerced confessions are commonplace in Dubai," said Radha Stirling, chief executive of Detained in Dubai, who are representing the family. Sentences for drug trafficking can include the death penalty and possession of even the smallest amount of illegal drugs can lead to a minimum four-year jail sentence. IMAGE SOURCE,DETAINED IN DUBAI Image caption,Billy Hood's family are appealing to the UK and UAE government to intervene In a statement to his lawyers Mr Hood said: "I have always had a zero-tolerance on any drugs or illegal substances. "For me to be accused of promoting and selling drugs in a country that has the same beliefs and values as me is very upsetting as it affects my future." Mr Hood's family are appealing to the UK and UAE government to intervene in the case. Mr Hood's mother Breda said: "I have hidden myself away, crying and crying when I imagine what our sweet boy is going through. "It is the worst stress I've ever been through and I feel helpless." The UAE embassy has been approached for comment.
    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-58930593 Conservative MP Sir David Amess has died after being stabbed multiple times at his constituency surgery in Essex. Police said a 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder after the attack at a church in Leigh-on-Sea. They recovered a knife and are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident. A counter terrorism team will lead the investigation. Boris Johnson has spoken of his shock and sadness at the loss of "one of the kindest" people in politics. Home Secretary Priti Patel has asked all police forces to review security arrangements for MPs "with immediate effect", a Home Office spokesman said. Sir David, 69, had been an MP since 1983 and was married with five children. He is the second serving MP to be killed in the past five years, following the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox in 2016. She was killed outside a library in Birstall, West Yorkshire, where she was due to hold a constituency surgery.   The investigation into the attack will be led by the Metropolitan Police's specialist Counter Terrorism Command, who will determine whether it was a terrorist incident. The prime minister said Sir David had an "outstanding record of passing laws to help the most vulnerable". "David was a man who believed passionately in this country and in its future. We've lost today a fine public servant and a much-loved friend and colleague," said Mr Johnson. Ms Patel said the killing "represents a senseless attack on democracy itself", adding that "questions are rightly being asked about the safety of our country's elected representatives". Sir David, who represented Southend West, was holding a constituency surgery - where voters can meet their MP and discuss concerns - at Belfairs Methodist Church in Eastwood Road North. Essex Police Chief Constable Ben-Julian Harrington said they received reports of a stabbing shortly after 12:05 BST and within minutes, officers found Sir David with multiple injuries. Police and paramedics "worked extremely hard" to save him but he died at the scene, Mr Harrington said. IMAGE SOURCE,ANTHONY FITCH Image caption,Armed police were seen outside the church where Sir David met consituents Police have appealed for anyone who saw the attack, or who has footage from CCTV, dash cams or video doorbell to contact them. Southend councillor John Lamb told the BBC that Sir David moved his surgeries to different locations around the constituency "to meet the people" and said the attack was "absolutely dreadful". "We've lost a very good, hard working constituency MP who worked for everyone," he said. Who was Sir David Amess? A Conservative backbencher for nearly forty years, Sir David entered Parliament in 1983 as the MP for Basildon. He held the seat in 1992, but switched to nearby Southend West at the 1997 election. Raised as a Roman Catholic, he was known politically as a social conservative and as a prominent campaigner against abortion and on animal welfare issues. He was also known for his championing of Southend, including a long-running campaign to win city status for the town.
