Sikh Lawyer's Turban Was Kicked Off His Head As He Was Beaten To The Ground In A Racist Attack In City Of London

Recommended Posts

A Sikh lawyers turban was kicked off his head as he was beaten to the ground in a racist attack outside St Pauls Cathedral, a court has heard. Rashvinder Singh Panesar and his wife Sundeep Kaur Panesar were making their way home from a meeting in the City of London when they were set upon, the Old Bailey heard.

Aravinth Kandasamy, 26, and Luxmanan Mahendran, 27, allegedly shouted 'lets kick his turban off' and 'kick it away' as they kicked and punched Mr Panesar in April last year. When Mrs Panesar, also a lawyer, tried to intervene and retrieve her husbands red turban, she was grabbed and almost knocked to the ground by Mahendran, it is alleged.

The court heard Mr Panesar suffered a fractured nose, a chipped tooth, injured his knee and had both his contact lenses knocked out in the alleged attack, which took place in Carter Lane, at around 10.45pm on 26 April 2013. Kandasamy, of Ilford, Essex, and Mahendran, of Arnos Grove, north London, deny two counts of racially aggravated assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Mahendran also denies assault by beating.

Prosecutor Louis French said: Mr and Mrs Panesar are Sikhs and in the custom that Sikhs have Mr Panesar was wearing a turban, quite a colourful one that night, it was red.' He said the couple had been to a meeting of the Society of Asian Lawyers. He said: It was about 10.30pm when they left the bar, walking together along Carter Lane crossing a pavement heading towards the cathedral. They went to the roadside and stood hoping to hail down a black cab.

The couple noticed three men straight ahead of them, one of those men made an offensive remark tuck me in b****. One of the group said f*** you we are going to put you to sleep, were going to tuck you in. The two other men joined in these remarks which were being shouted. Another said: "F*** you, dont you know who we are?"' Mr French said it turned aggressive and the men 'seemed to be encouraging each other'. He said: These three men closed in on Mr Panesar and the verbal abuse continued, Mrs Panesar was called a b****.

Mr Panesar was pushed to the ground and then set upon by the gang, the jury was told. They then started to quite seriously attack him by punching and kicking him, said Mr French. He was desperately stood there out-numbered and trying to fend them off. But in the course of this violent attack he was brought down to the ground where he was kicked and punched to his face, body and his back.

One of the men shouted lets kick his turban off and thats precisely what was done. Mr Panesars turban was removed by kicking and another man shouted kick it away. Mrs Panesar ran over and went to try and retrieve it but as she did so she was grabbed and almost knocked to the ground. The person who did that was Mahendran. Both defendants claim that their alleged victim was aggressive towards them first, the court heard. The trial continues.

Another reminder that we have forgotton the sant-sipahi lifestyle entrusted to us by our Guru sahibs, first by Guru Hargobind Maharaj miri-piri da malik and then cemented by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj. Sikhs should be armed at all times, they shoulld train in the arts of war and be tyar bar tyar. All Sikhs boys girls, men, women, should learn combat arts learn how to defend yourselves. These sorts of racist attacks are getting more and more common,

Cisco Singh Jee is correct. Sikhs need to always be Tyar Bar Tyar(this is a Guru Hukam). For that one should make their bodies/Sareer strong by having some kind of regular workout routine. Learn to defend yourself. MMA is is good start. Plus use anything you have on you which can be used as a potential Shastar like your Kara(a heavy one), a heavy leather belt. Buy a pair of knuckle dusters/brass knuckles. they fit in your pocket and can literally stun your opponent especially if you are being attacked by multiple opponents.

In a street fight there are no rules, anything goes, just don't use your Kirpan if you live in the west because then the whole community becomes answerable.

Who cares what the west think about us, i think using you're Kirpan is justfiable when being attacked as it is permitted in our religion so i have no problem what they think about us. Why should we try to impress them and why should we always fear about the reputation of sikhs in western countries, besides these are the same people that want to ban kirpans, Dastar, ext

It's not about impressing anyone or fearing anyone. Use of a Kirpan should be a very last resort i.e: if your life is under threat. If you train and are skilled in unarmed combat you can easily defend yourself against common attacks like the one mentioned in this post, in this scenario the attackers were unarmed there is no need to draw a Kirpan.

Do you realise what will happen if you draw a weapon an use it such a scenario against unarmed attackers, the result will most likely be a lenghty jail sentence plus negative publicity which can lead to the carrying of Kirpans being banned in a worst case scenario.

Also it has to be said that the majority of Amritdharees who carry Kirpans sadly carry them for symbolic means..they probably have never removed them from their cases and they are probably blunt..and completely useless as real shastar or weapons. Secondly they have zero knowledge on how to deploy and utilise a kirpan, in this case you can end up being disarmed by your attackers and they can use your own weapon against you. They carry kirpans but have forsaken, forgotton and abondoned the Gurus Hukam to train the body and learn martial sciences and the arts of war.

This is why it is crucial to train in combat arts which teach how to handle being attacked by multiples, how to handle being attacked by assailants who are armed, how to disarm opponents carrying weapons and understand their pyschology. You will not learn these things from the standard mcdojo watered down tae kwon do, karate, MMA classes that are popular today. You need to look at arts like Panantukan, Kali, Eskrima, Silat, Krabi Karabong etc etc..

Cowardly Tamil Tigers.

They can't even protest properly. I remember when they were getting butchered in Sri Lanka 4 years ago and they decided to bring all of London to a standstill, instead of using their brain and just protesting in front of the Sri Lankan embassy.

UK News: Luxmanan Mehendran cleared of religiously aggravated assault after being accused of kicking off a man's turban in a brawl.

Two men have been cleared of a religiously aggravated assault after they were accused of kicking a Sikh lawyer’s turban off during a brawl.

Luxmanan Mehendran, 27 of Ashridge Gardens in Arnos Grove, Enfield, and Aravinth Kandasamy, 26 of Essex, were accused of assaulting Rashvinder Singh Panesar outside St Paul’s Cathedral in April, 2013.

It was alleged at the Old Bailey that the pair kicked off the man’s turban during the brawl but both told the jurors they acted in self-defence.

Mr Mahendran was cleared of religiously aggravated assault as well as assaulting Mr Panesar’s wife during the scuffle.

However, the jury could find a verdict in relation to the count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and prosecutors will decide next week whether he should have a retrial for ABH.

Mr Kandasamy was found not guilty unanimously of religiously aggravated assault occasioning ABH, and assault occasioning ABH.

The fight broke out when Mr Panesar tried to hail a black cab and resulted in a melee where Mr Panesar's suffered a fractured nose, a chipped tooth, and an injury to his knee, the court heard.

    • It depends on what 5 Pyarey told you to do. They told me 5 Banis in the morning, 1 in the evening and 1 before going to bed.    
    • Modi in theory should what's best for India. The issue here is that he is beholden to various lobbies like the large Indian corporates and Oligarchs like Ambani.  Ambani's interests do not lie in what is best for India's interests but to himself and his shareholders and to the globalist elites that he is probably a member of. India's has banned a lot of Chinese apps because they do not want their population to be subverted by Chinese interests.  However, that does not mean that india does not do business on the sly with China behind everybody's backs. The likes of Ambani will still do business covertly even if overtly China is adversarial.  That is why it's important to watch what they do, not what they say.
    • The Indian media would have to spin that to an incredible degree, to make it seem as if Modi has a plan that ultimately benefits India even when dealing with a geopolitical adversary such as China, especially since what happened between the two sides a few months ago as well as the ongoing propaganda war between the two.  
    • Hey everyone, I'm new to this site and this is my first post. I recently got into Sikhi and for the last 4 months, I have been so into reading history and prayer as well. What I don't understand is different websites. Panj bani paath is what I don't understand. Are the five...3 in morning 1 evening 1 at night. Or is there 5 in the morning and then 1 in evening and 1 at night. 2 or 3 websites contradict each other. Which ones do we have to read. I'm so confused. Please don't laugh or judge me.    What are the 5 and when do you do them?    Some say 3 in morning and some say 5. Is 5 all in morning or are the 5 altogether in total throughout the day?  Is it: Japji sahib, Jaap sahib, tav-prasad savaiye in morning and then rehras and kirtan sohila (are these the 5?)    Or is it:   Japji sahib, Jaap sahib, tav-prasad savaiye AND chaupai sahib and anand sahib in morning (are these the 5?) And then rehras and kirtan sohila in the evening time.      Thank you 
    • Privatisation can also mean foreign players can come onto the scene.  China is buying swathes of land in Africa and elsewhere to grow food, they could do the same in India. New Zealand bulk of agriculture goes to China. What if these companies decide to sell food produced to China for higher prices and not to local market?
