A running club is holding a 10km event next month to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Sikhs In the City is seeking 70 participants for the run, being held on Sunday, February 6, in honour of Her Majesty's 70-year reign.

The event can be done in person or virtually, according to club president Harmander Singh.


The run will start at the junction of Roding Lane South and Woodford Bridge Road at 10am, although participants are asked to arrive by 9.30am.

There will be five laps of a 2km route, which also incorporates Woodford Avenue.

The strange history of Camilla's Coronation Day diadem: the Koh-i-Noor Crown

Last worn by the Queen Mother for the Coronation of her husband King George VI, this storied crown has been worn by just three royal consorts, with the central diamond originally acquired by Queen Victoria

The Koh-i-Noor diamond is perhaps the most famous - and controversial - piece in the Crown Jewels. Originally discovered in India, it was given by the last Sikh ruler, Dulip Singh, to Queen Victoria. It was set in the British consort's crown, and was most recently worn by the Queen Mother for the Coronation of her husband, King George VI, in 1937. As recently as 2016 it was the subject of legal battles between the UK and India, who want the treasure back. Now, it is in the headlines again, as it was revealed that the Duchess of Cornwall will wear the Koh-i-Noor tiara during the Coronation of her husband, Prince Charles.

The UK’s first Air Cadet unit at a Sikh Faith school has opened in Wolverhampton, with a special parade marking the turning out of its first recruits.

The Khalsa Cadets Wolverhampton RAF (CCF), held its official turning out ceremony on Saturday (April 30) for students who are part of the programme. The unit is part of the city’s Khalsa Academy – an inclusive school, which welcomes learners from all socio-economic, cultural and religious backgrounds.

The Khalsa Air Cadet contingent, which has strong links with Sikhism, currently has 70 cadets and three members of staff, who took part in a special turning out parade on the day.

Flight Lieutenant Manveet Dhaliwal, said she was proud to support the opening of the new squadron, which is the first of its kind and is supported by the Khalsa Academy Trust.

“It’s good to support the launch of a new air cadet squadron, and specifically one that’s got really close ties to Sikhism”, she said.

“Sikhism and cadets actually have a lot of parallel values, which I think is important to capture and promote as well”.

Wing commander Manjeet Singh Ghataora, said that he hoped opening more Khalsa cadet units will help to break down barriers and encourage more ethnic minorities to join the organisation.

“There’s always the barrier. We’re trying to recruit more BAME people into the Royal Air Force and the other services”, he said.

“Hopefully cadet organisations like this will look to increase that representation. Here they can see that by looking at the serving personnel that have come to support the event, and also the many young Sikh cadets joining up, that there’s opportunities for them here as well”.

The Air Cadets is an organisation, which is designed for young people aged 13 and upwards, boasting numerous opportunities including UK and overseas camps, leadership courses, air experience flights and pilot training.

Speaking of the benefits of joining up, Mr Ghataora pointed to “amazing opportunities”, where youngsters can learn a variety of skills, including discipline, organisation, communication and leadership.

“I know it makes a difference for people’s careers when they go for jobs, if you turn round and say ‘I was a flight sergeant in a cadet organisation”, he told Pukaar News.

“They get to try flying and do lots of adventurous training, so it’s a great opportunity, especially for people in the inner cities, to get out and about and have a look at the military opportunities”, he added.

New recruit Jasmeet Kaur, said that Air Cadets had helped with her confidence by taking her out of her comfort zone.

“It introduces you to new things. Normally I’m always inside the house and I never do anything and, joining up and participating in this, it’s just helped me to feel better about myself”, she said.

Lance Corporal Jushan Preet Kaur, said that joining the Air Cadets, had helped her to consider a career in the Armed Forces.

“The uniform – I love it. It gives me a confidence, and I know my parents are proud of me as well, and that’s a key thing for me”, she added.

We Sikhs have to rise above the falsehood of the British. The thikning of these peeps when dealing with ethnic minorities is of superiority. They killed over 400 Ghadar revolutionaries around 1916. 

Even today the very concious of the common man is being tested because of the lies of the British. But what is more dangerous is our own people siding with them.

The super powers don't want to admit the lies put out by the British. We infact are governed by power in 2022. Anyone challenging them is wishing for a death wish. Look at of Saddam and Gadaffi. Sant Bhindranwale challenged the Indian Government.
