Labour faces a sexism row today after it defended the decision to segregate Muslim men and women at a party rally at an Islamic centre.

Senior party figures, including Liam Byrne, Tom Watson and Harriet Harman's husband Jack Dromey, spoke at the event in Birmingham on Saturday even though men sat on one side of the room and women on the other.

Labour has denied that people were forced to sit separately based on gender - even though photographs from the event show that the groups were clearly segregated.

Critics called the decision 'sickening' and claimed that the party was 'selling values for votes' in order to get Ed Miliband into Downing Street.

What a shallow reason to support ukip. How old are you?

Terrible governance by libs/lab/cons isn't reason to collaborate with the majority of indeginous facists of this country and support a common party (ukip).

Ukip like any other political party will pander to the whim of the majority of their support... who happen to by the former supporters of the now underground bnp/nf.

If there is nobody worthy of ur vote its better not to vote then give ur vote to a party supported largely by racists.

In my opinion:

I would not vote Conservative because David Cameron refused to have an independent enquiry into the role of British Government in operation Blue Star and has refused to release more classified information which could prove the guilt of the Indian government. He also refused to apologise for Jallanwalla Bagh and just "regretted" the incident... Therefore for me he has let down Sikhs the most as a PM especially when Professor Bhullar/Kesri Lehar protests where happening. Sikhs were just simply ignored. Add the fact we were also ignored by Tories when they put the Gandhi statue up... So for me Tories have done absolutely nothing for Sikhs and I can't believe any Sikh will want to vote for them.

I won't vote UKIP because lets face it... They are a party of closet racists. Everyone knows it, they have BNP, EDL, Britain First, NF, white supremacists type people amongst their ranks and campaigning for them. And a huge disproportionate amount of racist sound bites come from their candidates. They don't want to increase minimum wage but even scrap it. Stop foreign aid... (Which is only 0.7% of budget...Most candidates are Tory defectors. They want to get rid of maternity/paternity leave and remove race discrimination law, remove Human Rights Act - so a Sikh could be deported to India for terrorism charges even though there might be risk of torture, unfair trial.

Thereafter I think it depends on ur local MP and what they stand for... Some Labour/Lib Dem MPs have been fantastic in supporting Sikh causes. Parmjit Singh Gill for example the Lib Dem candidate teamed up with Lord Singh pushing for some sort of enquiry when British involvement in Operation Blue Star happened. Tom Watson (Labour -West Brom) was one of few MPs that bought it up in Parliament and challenged the coward David Cameron to conduct an Independent Enquiry, which he never did.

On the other hand you have Labour MPs like Keith Vaz who also pushed for Gandhi Statue in his constituency and just stops short of calling Sikhs extremists, along with Sharma from Southall... Why do Sikhs keep voting them in!?!?!

I think Sikhs need to really think about whether your MP has actually been there and supported Sikhs.. look at their policies and where they remained quiet. These past 5 years have been huge for Sikhs in terms of UK politics... Now it's time to punish those that never gave us any support.

Support those that support Sikh issues , these could be of any party. Many have pledged support to the Sikh manifesto, so that would be a good indication.

The main reason Cameron didn't apologise for Jallianwala is because if he did then they would accept responsibility and open themselves up to every lawsuit know to man, the British government would be liable for damage's to the descendants of the victims, him going there was purely a PR stunt, nothing more, if anyone was expecting anything more thing they are gravely mistaken.

In reference to Vaz and Sharma, i can't really comment on Sharma but I've met Vaz on numerous occasions and he is, to put it politely, the biggest snake you'll ever meet, he's manoeuvred himself into a position of power using dirty politics and games, he get's the local vote because the majority in Leicester are Gujarati and so if he (barely), he scratches their back and they vote for him, simple as.

Poodna Ji, not voting is in fact a vote for the continuation of the status quo.

It is vital all Sikhs vote for whichever "lesser devil" they feel can somewhat support Sikh interests best.

Don't forget the historical lessons we the Sikh Panth painfully endured when in 1980 Damdami Taksal campaigned for Congress (Indira) and the disastrous consequences for our Panth thereafter.

And also remember what happened when Beanta became CM of Punjab due to being elected unopposed.

Sikhs MUST use our votes for those representatives we feel we can support Sikh interests to a greater degree than their opponents.

Us Sikhs are so lucky to have Badal fortunately Beant Singh has passed on ;-)

The party that supported Sikh issues in the Sikh Manifesto, the Scottish Nationalists Party (SNP) has had a landslide winning 56 of the 59 seats in Scotland. Scotland will probably ask for Independence again in the near future. Labour has done badly and will need to relook at its engagement with Sikhs. Tories have done well and the rightwing that was held back by the coalition with the Lib Dems will be unleashed.

As a left winger I am, of course, frightened at how the Tories will again be making the ordinary working class people pay for the rich man's debt. But, on the other hand, as a Sikh, I am so glad that this disgusting Labour Party has been taught a lesson. The way it behaved towards we Sikhs, particularly in it's visit to the Gurdwara a few weeks ago when it was so embarrassed to be standing next to what it saw as 'disgusting, backward, animal-like, dirty beared men with turbans' that it banned all media and all photographs from the visit. I will tell my kids and my grandkids about what the Labour Party did and know for sure that none in my future off-spring will ever vote Labour again. We will never forget how they behaved.

    • A little random, but I'll post it anyway People in older days seemed to be fitter and healthier ; I mean, they generally walked more, and ate less rubbish. They were forced to be more physically healthy by way of life.  They likely had better mental health, as they would not have been using technology like phone/PC/TV/audio/whatsapp to fill their minds with rubbish like most of us do, and which has driven materialism to extreme levels They would have had better diet with fresher food, less ready-made foods and less junk snacks and drinks. They would have eaten food in peace with family, not whilst watching TV Apparently (for those who know about acupressure and ayurveda) walking bare-foot is also good for the nervous system and brain; people walk less bare foot nowadays. Squatting to open bowels is known to reduce incidence of gastrointestinal cancer.  https://www.researchgate.net/publication/305362118_Etiology_of_Diverticulosis Some of these things are common sense, some of these things we do not /find it difficult to get away from as they make our lives a lot easier   What of these above factors do you actively try to control in your life? Do they discourage us from doing a lot of these things because they have vested interests? Anyone know about any race/tribe of people who follow these older ways as much as possible ? Is meat-eating in history, a myth? Has it been exaggerated by those in the meat industry to brainwash people that eating meat is normal? Were most people in the past vegetarian by choice (I know meat is supposedly food of wealthy and hunters)  
    • Is it used properly though? Many people (not all) become dependent on it. True, but I also haven't seen anything that supports it either. Here's an excerpt from a book by Sant Harnam Singh Rampur Khera Wale - https://www.sikhbookclub.com/Book/Intoxicant-Enemy-of-Humanity   Bhul Chuk Maaf 🙏
    • @Redoptics Isn't a missionary. I think you're missing his point.  Not speaking on behalf of source, but speaking to the point redoptics was trying to make.  Use Gurbani to understand Gurbani. You can do that. 
    • The marijuana fish wine consumer is referencing a specific tradition of person. Not anyone who properly uses Sukha.  The second references no longer needing it.  Nothing in Gurbani is against Sukha. It's ground into the floors of Gurudwaras and the Gurus had Degh Sevadars. Anyone with a problem with Sukha have white folks in their brains. Which is why they're alcoholics usually.
