Are you humble-bragging? 😂

Can I just say:  That type of bag he wore is one I commonly associate with people who sell weed on corners. Firstly, younguns, please don't wear them, not least of all because they look crap, lik

I've heard of thieves, attackers, etc., scoping out potential victims and their belongings based on what people display on their social media accounts. Another reason to add to the ever-expanding list

That type of bag he wore is one I commonly associate with people who sell weed on corners. Firstly, younguns, please don't wear them, not least of all because they look crap, like you're wearing a purse, secondly, if it gives the impression you're carrying weed, it might entice someone to try and rob you for it. And we should all know that these days in London that usually involves chaakoos. 

I’m sure part of the reason is racism instead of something as simple as his bag.

I don't think it works like that in London.

The link you shared only shows minority being stabbed, kinda contradictory to what you said.

It's usually colored vs colored. Few whites are stabbed (there are not that many white youths in London proper). Maybe some of the attacks are racist, but only a minority. It's usually gang related or theft related

Urban youts be juking each other over minor tings in Londinium bruv. 

I'm going to say some insensitive but important point now: how that young Sikh brother looked and dressed (from what I've known of predators) would put him on the radar for attacks.

I seem to remember the crime stats painting a more broad picture than that. 

The ground reality could be different. I remember getting a ticket once and they put my race as Caucasian despite being a brown guy. 🤷‍♂️

Jesus Christ, stop gaslighting me. You know nothing of the knife crime situation in London, specifically the Post-Code gang wars being fought by young black youths in urban areas. The UK is NOT the US. The murder of this young Singh is a residual of that larger problem.

In London it might be minorities doing that, but you can go other areas like Liverpool or certain areas in Scotland, and it's a different picture. 

London is a lot like certain cities in India in a way, in that you have affluent areas right next to deprived estates. From what I've seen those kind of estates breed hopelessness and violence.

This should not come as a big suprise. At the moment knife crime is out of control in London. Anyone regadless of their religion, ethnicity or race can become a victim. It does not matter what religion you are, be it Sikh, Hindu, Muslim. With the current state of the UK. anyone can get stabbed if your in the wrong area and the wrong time.

I remember when I was a teen. It was quite rough then but now its just got worse. We need more detterant for these mindles acts of violence and crime. Politicians dont have any answers.

    • This. It's a lot more than this as well, military strategies, intel networks, manipulating narratives, decision making -  just for a start.   If you can perceive some of these things you're blessed more than most people who read it all the time on a surface literal level. 
    • Afghanistan’s last Sikhs in a dilemma: To stay or leave Community leaders estimate just 140 Sikhs remain in the Taliban-ruled country, mostly in the eastern city of Jalalabad and capital Kabul. An Afghan Sikh priest praying at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] Published On 20 Jan 202220 Jan 2022   The caretaker of Kabul’s last Sikh temple stands looking at the cavernous hall where throngs once gathered in worship. Only a handful are left now. “Afghanistan is our country, our homeland,” said Gurnam Singh. “But we are leaving out of sheer hopelessness.” In the 1970s, Afghanistan’s Sikh population numbered 100,000, but decades of conflict, poverty and intolerance have driven almost all of them into exile. The Soviet occupation, subsequent Taliban regime and bloody military intervention by the United States winnowed their numbers to just 240 last year, according to figures kept by the community. After the Taliban returned to power in August, opening the newest chapter in Afghanistan’s dark history, a fresh wave of Sikhs fled the country. Today, Gurnam Singh estimates just 140 remain, mostly in the eastern city of Jalalabad and in Kabul. An Afghan Sikh priest carrying the Guru Granth Sahib at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] Some of the remaining devotees trickle into the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple to pray on a recent wintry morning. Men stand to one side, women to the other – about 15 people in total. Sitting barefoot on a floor covered with thick red rugs, they warm themselves around stoves and listen to a recitation from the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh holy book. In November, the temple had three copies, but two have since been sent to New Delhi for “safekeeping”. Poverty is rife among Afghan Sikhs, and attacks by the Afghan chapter of the ISIL (ISIS) armed group are a real threat. The overwhelming majority of Sikhs fleeing Afghanistan have landed in India, where 90 percent of the religion’s 25 million global adherents live, mainly in the northwest region of Punjab. Since the Taliban takeover, India has offered exiled Sikhs priority visas and the opportunity to apply for long-term residency. There is no sign yet that citizenship is on the table. Pharmacist Manjit Singh, 40, is among those who turned down the offer, despite his daughter having emigrated there with her new husband last year. “What would I do in India?” he asked. “There is no job or house there.” Among the remaining holdouts, the prospect of leaving is particularly wrenching: it would mean abandoning their spiritual home. “When this gurdwara was built 60 years ago, the whole area was full of Sikhs,” said 60-year-old community elder Manmohan Singh. “Whatever joy or sorrow we felt, we shared it here.” A priest praying at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] From the outside, the temple is largely indistinguishable from other buildings on the street. But security here is markedly high, with body searches, ID checks and two fortified doors. In early October, unidentified gunmen forced their way inside and vandalised the sacred space. The incident had ugly echoes of the most scarring attack on the Afghan Sikh community. In March 2020, members of ISIL assaulted the Gurdwara Har Rai Sahib in Shor Bazar, a former enclave of Kabul’s Sikh community, killing 25. Since the attack, that temple – and the nearby Dharamshala Gurdwara, the capital’s oldest Sikh house of worship at an estimated 500 years – have been abandoned. Parmajeet Kaur was struck by shrapnel in her left eye during the attack, and her sister was among those killed. In the weeks that followed, Kaur packed her bags and headed for New Delhi, but “we had no work and it was expensive, so we came back”, she said. That was in July, a few weeks before the Taliban returned to power. Now Kaur, her husband and three children are fed and housed by Karte Parwan Gurdwara. Her children do not go to school, and Kaur never ventures beyond the walls of the temple, the only place where she feels safe. She thinks about leaving again, this time for Canada or the US. “My son and daughters are still small,” she said. “If we leave, we can make something of our lives.”
