How come british journalists dont make Sikh political documentaries any more?

Recommended Posts

I remember back in the 80s and 90s there was various documentaries about the political affairs of the Sikhs in the UK and in punjab/india but nowadays there's nothing. Everything to do with religion is almost entirely focused on Islam and its notorious groups and people.

In 2012 an american ex-special ops neo nazi white supremacist murdered 8 people in a gurdwara in wisconsin and no documentary was made covering it.

Recently we learnt that the British thatcher government had involvement in helping (in very limited capacity as they say) the Indian government attack darbar Sahib in 1984. We learnt that Thatcher also said things back in 1980s to malign British Sikhs of southall in regards to the sectarian christian/catholic northern Ireland troubles. There should be enough material out there for some clever documentary journalists to investigate the real role of the British government in the Sikh genocide of 1984.

The Sikhs of punjab in 80s/90s were in a very similar situation to that of tamil hindus of present times. The british government aided the sri lanakan buddhist senalese government to cause the tamil genocide in 2009. British govt funded Channel 4 news covered it in various news bulletins and made documentary on it. However no one has done the same for the Sikhs they haven't exposed the British and other governments role in our peoples mass murder and attack on our religious institutions.

Even our own so called religious leaders and organisations that claim to represent the voice of british sikhs (like sikh federation, sikh council, etc)  have strangely gone gupt and silent as a mouse not said a word since 2014. It seems like some backdoor deals are being done undercover.

War on Terror, bro. We've served our purpose. We're old news. Their attention is firmly focused on the Middle East and Muslims in general. We're only wheeled out when they want to patronise us and remind us about the good old days for contemporary vested interests, OR when they're in the mood to demonise us on occasions we dare to speak up for ourselves, which goes against the narrative of us being a compliant, grateful community who have no business raising their voice in order to be heard.

They've also clocked onto the fact that there's a considerable disconnect between orthodox Amritdhari Sikhs who hold, broadly speaking, religiously conservative opinions, and the Punjabi aspirational middle-classes who aren't religiously inclined, and are predisposed to side with the mainstream establishment narrative over their so-called own people's interests. There's a third group that's emerged over the past few years that consists of Sikhs who are generally known as millennials, and they are, from a Sikh perspective, a law unto themselves, lol. They stand for everything and nothing, which is great for those in power. 

Sikh journalists in the West are overwhelmingly bought and paid for by the establishment. They espouse the globalist agenda, and anyone that clings to notions of exclusivity, be it national, cultural, and religious (aside from Muslims for some reason) is considered to be backwards and unsophisticated and worthy of scorn. That's why you'll never get Sikh journalists in the British press and media speaking up for solely Sikh interests that promote our growth and exclusivity, because the unspoken belief is that we shouldn't demarcate ourselves from everyone else on religious lines. A good Sikh is one who doesn't pay heed to his background and roots but instead parrots the party line of togetherness at the expense of faith. Note the rise of the likes of Hundal and other individuals who'd rather campaign for non-Sikh issues that are considered to be fashionable, as opposed to drawing attention to problems that are solely concerning us as a people. If our issues are ignored it robs us of a voice and adversely affects our standing as a community. When our "own" who have the clout to speak up are at the forefront of such efforts, it damages us all in serious ways.

You don't need the mainstream media, they are one that is dying slow death. There are so many outlets other than the mainstream media for us to have our interests to be heard.

What are you talking about?

 

Didn't you see the BBC documentary about Operation Bluestar?  You know, the one where we get to follow Sonia Deol's journey from an unpopular girl named Jaswinder Sidhu, to her rise as two-bit radio show host, to her discovery that something happened in Punjab in 1984?

Haha, yeah, that was some hard-hitting journalism in full force. "Everything was great. Nothing to see here. It was all much ado about nothing."

    • Nanaksar is not a cult, it is a legitimate samparda. However there are many offshoots which use the Nanaksar name and are indeed cultish. Many great Mahapurkhs and Brahmgyanis were from Nanaksar Samparda, truly Gyaan and Sharda da bhandaar. It's a shame people are abusing the name. Also it's worth noting many Nanaksar "Gurdwaras" are in fact, not Gurdwaras; they are called Thath - ਠਾਠ. These are more akin to ashrams and do not generally operate like regular Gurdwaras and therefore do not have a Nishan Sahib. Another one to add to the list of Canadian Nanaksar offshoots is Darbar Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in Calagry - I think this is the Bulandpuri one. I believe this is the same group whos main Dera in Punjab currently has the tallest Nishan Sahib. Pretty cultish from what hear. Ravidassi Gurdwaras are just regular Gurdwaras which are run by the chamaar caste as Puzzled has said. They've in some way made Bhagat Ravidass Ji their patron saint given he was from the caste. Nothing wrong with it imo. The Jaikaara the OP refers to is: Bole So Nirbhey Sri Guru Ravidass Maharaaj Ki Jai. Most do the normal one too. But there's also the breakaway Ravidassis who made their own religion. They have shunned Sikhi. I don't know how many of these are in the west tbh. I was saddened on my last trip to India...was just checking out local pinds and in one of them, I decided to pop into the Ravidassi Gurdwara - there was nothing there, just a picture of Bhagat Ji. I asked an old bibi there what the deal was and she said we don't have Maharaaj Saroop, no Granthi, no nothing. This caste divide has lead to people making their own places of worship on principle but some of them are empty and these people are spiritually deprived....they honestly seemed helpless. I mean even one Sikh could at least just go and do Nitnem with them. Hopefully I'll be able to return there. Aaanyway, I think OP might actually be a troll....I mean he called Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj "Sikh Holy Book". And also welcome back Jagsaw Singh.
    • I'm talking about everywhere , my own cousin after money had been spent like water on her education as an engineer and her securing a well paid job was snapped up by her Hindu classmate , they even refused to come to Punjab to get their son married to her , and my army Major Mama  took that <banned word filter activated> and got her married there in maharastra . The other daughter is similarly surrounded by hindu 'admirers'. Younger sister of my childhood friend both amritdhari got her head turned by a hindu guy too , what I don't get is why would you go where people try to stop you from freedom of thought/faith/life by their very philosophy of life ? Oh well  guess it's a matter of sanjog
