Recommended Posts

So boris johnson is not going to be mayor of London for much longer and there are a few candidates to chose from but the 2 front runners backed by their parties are sadiq khan (labour party) and zac Goldsmith (conservatives).

Who would you vote for and your reasons why?

I've been quite impressed by the way Corbyn's party has reclaimed Labour's leftism and shifted away from the mongrel politics of New Labour, who betrayed the working classes and bastardized the British left by continuing Thatcher's economic policy. I've never voted in any election before, but I will this time, and I'll be voting for Sadiq Khan, because I'd like to ensure that this revitalized Labour Party is as influential as possible. Especially since two of it's most prominent figures, John Mcdonnel and Tom Watson, are both friends of our Panth and always supported us in our struggle for justice against the perpetrators of the Sikh genocide, when nobody else even cared.

A muslim mayor of London In a already islamfied London cannot be good for the capital of England or non muslims.

"Already Islamified London" ? :omg: Really ?

Which part of London do you live in for you to think that ?

Oh yeah....you don't do you....You live in the Birmingham area and yet you think we Londoners live an "islamified" city. :nono:

As a Londoner, let me tell you that this city is very black......very jewish....very very Hindu....extremely European.....increasingly hispanic south american and in these parts of west London very Sikh. But, unless you live in the cheap eastern part of London, it most certainly isn't even remotely 'islamified'.

The imam of a mosque in Bradford issued a fatwa against Sadiq Khan because he voted in favour of gay marriage. He has received death threats from Muslims because of this. He's no Islamic toady, I'm certain.

Sadiq khan is a muslim so he will view muslim issues more favorably than non-muslim issues. Thats the problem with voting for labour. They also were involved in the banning of 2 Sikh freedom fighting groups in 2000 when jack straw the jewish mp lumped all armed groups in anti-terror legislation before 9/11 in preparation of what was to come in america. In 2009 they were also in government when they alleged to have destroyed an important file related to british establishment and operation blue star.

Nor do they put up Sikh candidates in high asian populated area's they tend to put up feminazi white women who do jack all for ethnic and religious minorities.

As for Zac Goldsmith he is a privileged white male, the son of a jewish billionaire whose tory party helped indira gandhi's Indian government attack our holiest shrine and the establishment sided with the enemy rather than came to our peoples aid. Nor did they want the release of secret documents to the public of their partys involvement in the Sikh genocide and war crime. They still dont want the disturbing truth to come out by hide the incriminating documents under the 100year rule and shipping them off to the vaults of the foreign affairs commonwealth office.

Also check the letters and leaflets sent to Sikh households below

You can't compare Corbyn's labour to the New Labour of Blair and Brown genie. They are barely the same thing. Corbyn's Labour, an authentically socialist one, had no role in all that anti-terror legislature and warmongering, Corbyn was opposed to it from the first.

Take a look at this leaflet targeting the Hindu community ^ On the Sikh leaflet he talks about defending our rights, and on the Hindu leaflet he talks about welcoming a man who is the single greatest obstacle to the Sikh's acquisition of these rights! This slimy creature is sooo two-faced. Sadiq Khan on the other hand wants to ban Modi from the UK? Good. Even more of a reason for us Sikhs to vote for him and Corbyn. Mr Khan is principled, not afraid to pi55 people off by fighting for what he believes in, Goldsmith is a fawning ar5e-kisser who will say anything to ingratiate himself into peoples' good graces.

Tom Watson of the Labour Party was the one campaigning for the Conservative Government's role in the storming of Sri Harmandir Sahib to be made public, not Zac Goldsmith. The months in the run-up to this mayoral election are the first time his name has EVER been mentioned in connection with the Sikhs. There isn't a single piece of evidence in print or on the net to substantiate his LIE that he "campaigned for the documents detailing the storming of the Golden Temple to be made public".

There is no dilemma here, no choice. Not for any decent person, and not for any Sikh who loves their Panth and wants it to prosper. Khan and Corbyn want to ban our enemy Modi, who supports the Shiv Sena, VHP and the RSS, from the UK. John Mcdonnell compared the events of 1984 to the Jewish Holocaust and demanded that this outrage be given the attention it deserves, when he was basically still a political nonentity. Tom Watson, as well as spearheading the effort to reveal the full extent of the Conservatives' involvement in 84, has consistently attempted to bring the Sikh genocide before parliament, only to be ignored repeatedly. In spite of this, he never stopped. These men are all our allies.

Interesting debate with the candidates on LBC.

As with most elections, it is a popularity contest. The Greens, Lib Dems and UKIP are there to make up the numbers.

It's going to be between Khan and Goldsmith.

Listening to the debate, I think Goldsmith will win it. He sounds more smooth, suave and polished.

I don't live in London so I have no bone on this.

I think you make a strong case for voting for labour there. If only they hadn't chosen a muslim candidate, its a huge problem for non-muslims to vote for him and thats why the tories know its better to pick on khan's islamic credentials so that they will get the votes. Khan has had some very dodgy islamo-fascist scumbags campaign for him judging by their social media feeds.

As for banning Modi I couldnt care either way. Sikhs should not be campaigning to ban Modi because thats the job of Indian muslims, let them get off their lazy greedy islamo-fascist backsides to protest against modi. Not half a brain dozen pro-pakistan Sikhs with village mentally jumping up and down sucking off their muslim oppressors at any given opportunity.

Sikhs should always either stay neutral and only fight for whats bests in the interests of our deen and kaum.

Solid post. With the way some Sikhs act you'd think it was Sikhs who were victims in 2002 and not the Muslims. Lets get off of our high horses, you cannot expect any govt to shun Modi during a visit because of Sikhs. Most illogical thinking ever. Modi is not the second coming of Zakirya Khan, but nor is he a much of a friend to us, well we dont have many friends in India as it is.

    • It's been happening regularly to @dallysingh101 for some time. And if you know a certain detail it only makes it more obvious that certain people are being targetted not their content. 
    • I'm confused. Is this a farmer protest issue or a Guru Sahib desecration problem?
    • https://indianexpress.com/article/north-east-india/meghalaya/sikh-punjabi-shillong-sad-megahalaya-governor-7572180/   Sikh delegation reaches Meghalaya, requests Guv to intervene in relocation decision “We shared our concerns and he assured us that no injustice will be done and the residents will not be removed illegally,” DSGMC President Manjinder Singh Sirsa told The Indian Express. Written by Tora Agarwala | Guwahati | October 14, 2021 10:31:08 pm A delegation of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DGMC) with Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik. (Twitter/mssirsa)   Keeping the pressure up on the Meghalaya government to revoke its decision of relocating Dalit Sikh residents of Them lew Mawlong area in Shillong, a delegation of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Thursday requested the intervention of Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik in the matter. “We shared our concerns and he assured us that no injustice will be done and the residents will not be removed illegally,” DSGMC President Manjinder Singh Sirsa told The Indian Express. A four-member team, led by Sirsa — who is also the National Spokesperson of Shiromani Akali Dal — met Malik at his official residence in Shillong earlier on Thursday afternoon. “He said he had already taken up the matter with Chief Minister Meghalaya Conrad Sangma as well,” said Sirsa, adding that they could not meet the Chief Minister because he was out of town. The Sangma-led Cabinet’s October 7 decision to relocate the Sikh community from the area, also called the Punjabi Lane, based on recommendations made by a high-level committee, had drawn protests from the residents, who claim that they have been living in the area since the 1850s, after they were brought by the British to work as scavengers and sweepers in the region. While the government claims that the land belongs to the Urban Affairs Department, the Sikhs say the land was “gifted” to them by the Syiem (chief) of Hima Mylliem – one of the chiefdoms in Khasi Hills – in the 1850s. The land dispute has simmered for decades, with sections of society and political organisations in Meghalaya demanding that residents be shifted to some other area. It took a violent turn in May 2018, leading to clashes between local Khasis and Sikhs of the area, after which a high-level committee was formed to settle it. While Sikh groups have called the move “illegal”, “unjust” and “unconstitutional”, with leaders saying they would take the matter up with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the Meghalaya government has stood firm on its decision so far. On Monday, Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong had told The Indian Express that they had “followed due diligence” on the issue. Sirsa said that since a status quo had been ordered by Meghalaya High Court on 9 April, 2021 based on a petition filed by Sikh groups in 2018, the high-level committee had no power to make such a decision. “The residents cannot be relocated without following due process,” he said. In a representation to Malik, DSGMC — an autonomous organisation that manages Gurudwaras, hospitals, educational institutions and welfare of Sikhs — that the Meghalaya government’s decision to take “possession” of the land is an action towards “instigating clashes” that can “spiral into violent unrest.” It also added that the government of Meghalaya asking the Urban Affairs Department to work out a relocation plan may lead to instigating the residents, “without even granting them an opportunity to say anything.” “The unilateral decision of the government in the name of illegal settlers is highly unconstitutional in nature and despite the directions of Hon’ble High Court they are not stopping from going ahead” it added. Gurjit Singh, President of the Harijan Panchayat Committee, which represents members of the Sikh Dalit community in Shillong, said that they felt “more confident” after the DSGMC meeting with Malik. “We are hopeful that the government will rethink their decision,” he said.
    • https://www.thedrum.com/news/2021/10/14/zulu-alpha-kilo-shares-how-it-helped-harley-davidson-protect-sikh-bikers-with-the   Zulu Alpha Kilo shares how it helped Harley-Davidson protect Sikh bikers with the Tough Turban By Awards Analyst - October 14, 2021 The Tough Turban camapign aimed to improve safety conditions for Sikh motorcyclists.   The challenge Harley-Davidson is a brand built on a love for the open road and its riders are passionate for the freedom that it offers. Yet for some riders, that freedom has come at the expense of their safety and their very identity. For Sikh men, the turban is a deeply important part of their identity. For decades, Sikhs who rode motorcycles found themselves choosing between their beliefs and their safety as all Sikh men are required to cover their hair as a symbol of respect and humility. Because traditional motorcycle helmets violate this religious tenet, the government in the Canadian province of Ontario passed legislation in 2018 that exempts Sikh men from the law requiring all motorcycle riders to wear protective helmets. The exemption was a hard-won step forward, but it also introduced a critical question: how could Sikh riders engage in their passion and still ensure their safety while riding without a traditional helmet? This created an interesting and unusual challenge: how to develop an alternative to a motorcycle helmet so Sikh motorcyclists would no longer have to choose between their beliefs and their safety. The strategy If anyone could address this challenge it would be the world’s most iconic motorcycle brand and its largest Canadian dealership, Pfaff Harley-Davidson in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Harley-Davidson attracts riders of all cultures, yet is often perceived to be the choice of old white men. Stepping up to a challenge like this was an opportunity for Harley-Davidson to help a group of riders overcome a big hurdle to fully embracing their passion – and to send a signal about the importance of diversity. The size of the need is large – Canada is second only to India in the number of Sikhs in the country. Through conversations with Sikh riders an interesting historical truth was discovered. In ancient times, Sikh warriors would go into battle with chain mail woven into the fabric of their turbans. This provided protection without violating religious tenets. It sparked our thinking: why couldn’t a modern-day equivalent be created to provide the safety that Sikhs deserve? It also led to the insight driving the initiative: with the right motorcycle gear, Sikh riders could be empowered to protect who they are. The campaign Tough Turban is a marriage of ancient traditions and modern, high-tech engineering. It’s a turban made of impact-resistant materials that also fully respects the requirements of the Sikh faith. A critical step was the development of the turban itself. Armed with a powerful concept, we assembled our team of industrial design experts with experience in 3D printing and composite fabrics used in bulletproof clothing. After a series of prototypes, a final design was developed. About half the overall fabric is normal turban material, but the outer layers include Dyneema, a 3D-printed carbon-fibre take on chain mail, and non-Newtonian foam, which is normally pliable but hardens instantly on impact. These are the elements that make it a tougher turban. With the design complete, the next part of the plan was the communications needed to get the word out. A website was the anchor of the effort. It houses a video that profiles several Sikh riders discussing the need the Tough Turban addressed, as well as highlighting how the turban was actually engineered. Along with the video, open-sourced production files for the turban were published to enable manufacturers anywhere in the world to be able to produce the turbans in their own markets. PR support outlining the initiative launched in early June, including posts on all of Pfaff Harley-Davidson’s social channels. The results The Tough Turban initiative has been a resounding success. Media response exploded overnight with coverage in 171 US media outlets, 54 in Canada, 18 in the UK and 11 in India, totaling 238.8m earned impressions and an advertising value of $2.19m. Quantitative research with people who own or are planning to buy a motorcycle showed a significant shift in perception after they’d been exposed to the Tough Turban initiative: 87% saw Harley-Davidson as more favourable 86% saw Harley-Davidson as more innovative 83% saw Harley-Davidson as more inclusive 85% were more likely to consider buying a Harley-Davidson Three manufacturers have reached out to explore large-scale production, including the world’s largest producer of two-wheeled motorized vehicles. The potential to save lives through this idea is enormous. It could offer protection to millions of Sikh motorcyclists globally.
