Headlines from Ed Milibands visit to Leamington Gurdwara yesterday

ITV Central and Sky News told in the morning the event at the Gurdwara was private. Why do Labour not want Sikh events to receive national mainstream media coverage?

Whole event carefully stage managed by the Labour Party and Gurdwara Management Committee to stop proper interaction with the Sangat (congregation) and to try and avoid awkward questions.

No filming or photographs allowed inside the Gurdwara other than those taken officially by the Labour Party these will be released today.

Sky News still obtained footage of Ed Miliband in the Gurdwara that was privately recorded and this has been televised. Labour Party criticised for the way the event was handled. Watch last 20 seconds of news item on Sky News critical of Labour keeping out cameras from Ed Miliband's visit to Leamington Gurdwara


Three Sikh TV Channels allowed to ask one pre-agreed question each in exclusive interviews at the end on Labours battle bus.

Sikh Channel went first and focused on free schools and Sikh ethos schools (Section 5 of the Sikh Manifesto).

Akaal Channel went next and to his credit Gurnam Singh did not stick to the script and specifically mentioned the Sikh Manifesto and managed to get Ed to say they would look into the need for an independent public inquiry into UK involvement into the 1984 Sikh Genocide if they get into power (Section 8 of the Sikh Manifesto). Not quite the same as backing an independent public inquiry, but Ed Miliband has gone further than before.

Vice Chair for Sikh for Labour (Gurinder Singh Josan) tried to get Sangat TV thrown out of the battle bus. Sangat TV presenter stood his ground and managed to get Ed to make commitment to site in central London for monument for Sikh sacrifices in First World War (Section 6 of the Sikh Manifesto) and get to him to make partial commitment on Statutory Code of Practice for the 5Ks and Sikh turban (Section 3 of the Sikh Manifesto)

Ed accused of racism over 'secret' visit to a Sikh Gurdwara - Daily Mail (10 April)

Just to clarify on behalf of the Sikh Federation (UK). Ed Miliband was not accused of racism, but some members of his team were rude in the way they handled the whole event and their offensive behaviour touched of racism. Also no comment was made about Ed Miliband's head covering.


We know when David Cameron will next be in a Gurdwara during the lead up to the General Election. Will he do the same thing or will he give an interview to the Sikh Federation (UK) responding to the issues set out in the Sikh Manifesto. The media should ask Ed to prove his credentials and give an interview to the Sikh Federation (UK) responding to the issues set out in the Sikh Manifesto.

    • 1. Can you share the source of this reading? So we can all get some more context and verify the validity of this reading material please?   2. Raaj isn't really preached in the teaching of the Gurus. If so, I'm sure the 10 Guru's would've clearly made this apparent in their teachings and would have accomplished this objective themselves.    Sri Guru Granth Sahib - Ang: 534 (Guru Arjan Dev Ji): Raaj Na Chahou Mukat Na Chahou Man Preet Charan Kamalare. (I do not seek power and I do not seek liberation. My mind is in love with your lotus feet)   Sri Dasam Granth Sahib - Ang: 57 (Bachitar Naatak):   Ham Ih Kaaj Jagat Mo Aae. Dharam Heth Gurdev Patthai. (I have set foot on this Earth for this one reason; to propogate righteousness)   Jahaan Tahaan Tum Dharam Bithaaro. DushT Dokheean Pakarr Pachharro. (The Lord has asked me to spread Dharam and vanquish tyrants and evil-minded individuals)   I could reference countless other tuk's from Gurbaani but i'm sure these two suffice.   Akali Baba Phoola Singh Ji was walking in the steps of the teachings of the Gurus; on a mission to eliminate the enemy; in this case being the British who tried ever so hard to eliminate our teachings by performing disgusting acts such as but not limited to: Creating the SGPC Spreading propaganda of the Khalsa Issuing 'shoot on-sight' orders to kill Singhs Spreading propaganda on our scriptures Sending in paid Sikhs to spread nonsence and create divisions Polluting the Khandeh Di Pahul maryada by introducing other cults to participate Removing the Nihang Singhs from the Akaal Bunga Sahib aka Akaal Takhat Sahib and therefore the whole Jathedaari system that has been in place since the time of the Gurus.  
    • The players are all built like tanks so there are physical benefits to it.
    • I know this topic has been addressed before (see here) but I was wondering if anyone has anymore knowledge to share about the 4 yugs. I was wondering how this would fit with modern day science. If anyone also has any videos or books on this subject, please share 🙃 Bhul Chuk Maaf 🙏
    • Yeah Krishna was really dark, Shyam. 
    • But then we also believe in the yug system! I'm sure bani also says God has made the world again and again, and then destroyed it, and then made it again?  So who knows which yug or time period these devi devte belonged to.  I'm sure one of Vishnus avtars came after a huge deluge, where only Manu and a few Kings were saved.  Makes the worship of these devi devte sound even more pointless, doesn't it.
