Violence erupts at Wolverhampton Sikh temple meeting

Punches were thrown, a knife drawn and a man had his turban torn off during violence at a Black Country temple, eyewitnesses said today.

Trouble flared at Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Sedgley Road, Blakenhall, Wolverhampton. It happened during the selection of the committee to run the temple.

Witnesses said the vice president had his turban torn off - a grossly disrespectful move - during the fracas and two people were hurt. One needed hospital treatment.

It was said that trouble flared in the prayer room as the names of those chosen to sit on the 25-strong committee were disclosed to a congregation estimated at more than 1000-strong.

Hecklers interrupted proceedings with shouts of protest at the proposed make up of the powerful group, the membership of which is changed every two years.

The disturbance reportedly got worse as it spilled downstairs into the office used by senior officials of the temple. Witnesses said too many people tried to cram into the room and a fight broke out during which a man allegedly drew a knife.

Punches were also reportedly thrown as groups representing rival factions clashed on Sunday afternoon.

One witness claimed: "Objections to the make-up of the committee could have been made in writing but these people chose to act like hooligans. They represented a small minority of the congregation and it was quickly apparent that the support they had anticipated was not there

"The trouble then transferred to an office downstairs where some of those who had been protesting in the prayer room tried to force their way in. Everything then went haywire.

"There was a fight, one man drew a knife and the vice president of the temple was assaulted. He had his turban forcibly removed which is an act of great disrespect.

"A large number of police officers were on the scene very quickly. It was as if they had been warned there might be trouble and were prepared to take action."

There is believed to have been simmering unrest among some of the congregation since the previous Sunday when five people were chosen to selected the controlling committee, as is the normal custom.

One critic said: "The problem stems from the fact that power is in the hands of too few people and others with different views do not get a look in."

Joanne Hunt from West Midlands Police confirmed: "Officers responded to reports of disorder at a Wolverhampton temple after a large crowd had gathered to mark the announcement of a new committee.

"Officers arrived to find a large group of people gathered at the temple. Two people were reported as having been injured during a small disorder inside a room of the temple. One of the men received hospital treatment to a facial injury. An investigation has been launched and local officers urge anyone with information to contact them by dialling 101."

Officials at the Guru Nanak Gurdwara said their president was unavailable for comment.

The lyric from that song by that Sartaj fellow about not even striking or removing your enemies' turban comes to mind, hehe.

There's nothing holy, considered, or religious about people who get up to this type of pallaver in what is supposedly a house of God. Over what though? Power, money? Is it really that difficult to control the urge to kick off in a Gurdwara over these committee politics? Lord help us.

Here is what happened

Story from the Victim Family goes like this....This fight was pre-planned by the committee...They had planned to kill or beat this guy who was the leader of few people that had problems with committee's behaviour and had questioned temple's wrong acvtivities.

After several meeting between these two groups, Temple people waited for the electioned to be over

Then the guy (leader) was locked up in a room and beaten by some hired guys.

Main granthi (Senior Staff) started singing prayer with music , drums while this guy was being beaten like a hell.

The guy is seriously injured but police has no evidence of who did this as the CCTV camera's were turned off during this pre-pnanned game

There is no eye witness and for some reasons hired guys had left Temple from the back yard before Police arrived.

Some people also says that its a BIG GAME of money which involves some big people too

Temple Story: Everything is rubbish and all people who has problem with the committee are member of Hindu groups (lols) or they are anti-Sikhs and they are drunk.

Temple committee has used a bollywood movie to beat this guy with turning the CCTV cemra's off, beating the guy alone in a room, using loud prayers with music and did everythign to remove the evidence of crime.

What was the demands from the guys group who was locked up in a room and beaten? The guy can still press charges against those who beat him without any video. Give a description of the people who beat him and get an arrest warrant out for them. Also the police can hard press the Gurdwara staff to give them up or they can be charged with aiding and abetting.

Shocking and disgraceful, unforgivable actions. Absolutely awful, ripping his turban off? The disrespect...this needs to be sorted, they must not get away with it, guy and his family/friends should press charges and get hospital records. We don't need this disgrace in our Gurdwaras

    • Nah, you just don't know how to analyse and read it. It's didactic narratives designed to make sense to the reader - not all historically based.    A lot of it is based around literacy and explorations and adaptations of literary forms, jungh vidhya, bir raas, social issues, just governance. 
    • Yeah, I can spot them from miles away now. Unfortunately this type is also adept at worming and scheming themselves into positions of power - so they are usually at advantage in work hierarchies, and as you've noticed, they can sense your heart and that often makes them hone in. They are VERY jealous and just being liked by others is enough to set them off. They are hyper vigilant, although they act nonchalant, and save bits of info to use against you at a later date.  You're right - they give off an energy you can sense a mile away, just from their presence and facial expressions - even without talking. We must give off an energy too, that they sense.  Their language is another giveaway, they don't talk about feelings, unless it's their own disgruntlement at something. They are completely oblivious to the feelings of others. They often go overboard to try and portray themselves as 'nice people' and go mental when anyone cracks the facade.  I think they really struggle with abstract thoughts and concepts, hence the sole anchoring on material and status and exterior presentation. A materialistic bimbo is their best bet for a partner (they like trophy wives/girlfriends), I feel really sorry for some of the poor women that get embroiled with them only to realise what they are dealing with years down the line after years of emotional abuse and neglect and having kids with them (who get embroiled in the narcs emotional games). They are really good at charming the f**k out of naive people to get what they want.
