Sangat Television Allegedly Poaching And Bribing Sikh Channel'S Presenters And Staff

Recommended Posts

I came across the below letter on the net (addressed to bhai sahib mohinder singh gnnsj from sikh channel)

-----

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru je ki Fateh

Sikh Channel is concerned by underhand and aggressive competitive practices in recent days by Sangat TV and humbly requests your advices.

As a learned and leading figure in the Sikh community respected widely and by all at Sikh Channel and also as the figurehead and Public Leader of Sangat TV we wish to draw your attention to concerns which you will not be aware of.

Sangat TV is positioning itself as a direct competitor and engaging in underhand practices to interfere with the Peoples Channels broadcast and programming. Please clarify:

1. Sangat TV sees Sikh Channel as a direct competitor and are now engaged in aggressive practices towards the People’s Channel programming.

2. Five senior Sangat TV representatives visited the home of one of our Regular Guest Presenters and requested he leave Sikh Channel and join Sangat TV

3. Sikh Channel Presenter has been enticed by financial reward greater than offered by Sikh Channel to present an identical programme to that featured on Sikh Channel thereby infringing intellectual copyright and programming format.

We seek your guidance upon Sangat TV, which has you as a figurehead; please confirm if Sangat TV is involved in a campaign of attrition against The Sikh’s Channel. We have had the kind pleasure of your company and know that you as a very Learned Sikh would not condone any such practices however your subordinates may be acting without your authority.

The Sikh Channel is bound to bring all matters before the public and will consider publicising the underhand and direct competitive policy of Sangat TV who are determined to copy and duplicate our programming and go further by actively poaching our established presenters.

Please clarify Sangat TV policy in this respect, if this indeed is the case, the Sikh Channel will meet with full force this direct and despicable conduct.

It would be unfortunate to have this anti panthic anti ekta situation of direct competition brought about by the actions of Sangat TV. We have not approached any presenter or regular Guest upon Sangat TV and had hoped you would offer alternative and differing programming to provide the Sikh Community with a choice. However Sangat TV seems determined to duplicate and poach Sikh Channel presenters and programming.

Please clarify the position of Sangat TV in order that we may present it before the viewers of The Sikh Channel and respond accordingly.

Moreover please note The Sikh Channel, all its Sevadars have the deepest respect, regard and admiration for you personally.

Kindly confirm. Many thanks.

Gur Fateh Parvan.

Sevadar on behalf of Sikh Channel

We can back-fire at Sikh Channel, as they did register the domain "Sangat.TV" which 'cleverly' re-directs to SikhChannel.TV

Fishy or Coincidence?

This was registered 25 June 2010, when the Sangat was told that another Sikh TV Channel will be releasing shortly...

Supposdly, named "Sangat Television".

Yes, the above all seems to be speculation. Unless, the writer of the letter, and the presenter mentioned, comes forward, it could be totally made up.

I sorry, but at the moment your post could be seen as a ploy to split Sikhs up in general, and break any existing unity of the Sikh Channels, and the Sangat who watch those channels!

Without anyone seeing the letter headed correspondence, it could all be made up!

how did you come across the letter?

Are you able to scan the letter and post it on this tread!

Who are you? and how did you come across the letter?

Nicely said! It's quite funny how "PrabhKaSimran" joins SikhSangat TODAY, and posts this 'mysterious' letter... :ph34r:

Benti to admin, please trace I.P address and see if its matches any existing user. :)

You don't need to reveal the I.P address, just the the Sangat know, yes or no. :D

If this following quote is true, then why does one need to create a NEW account, just to post this? ;)

Also, please provide "I came across the below letter on the net", link to source.

They've got a scroll along the bottom of Sikh Channel which seems to confirm the above letter. I heard Ranjit Singh Rana has left Sikh Channel to join Sangat TV. This is very petty by Sikh Channel. Rather than complaining about the competition, they should make themselves stronger.

and yet sangat tv said they were not going to get politicians involved anyway.

Sikh Channel approached sangat tv not long ago wanting to join forces, sangat tv in brief said they will think about it and let sikh channel know - sikh channel releases a statement saying they have joined and sangat tv will close down in december.

Sangat TV got upset and said NO waayyyy - as sikh channel was lying and just doing a publicity stunt.

Thats all sikh channel is good at, publicity stunts.

Why dont all three channels cover sonia gandhis visit and host dialogue with her and make a show on the attrocities commited by her mother not only on sikhs but everyone else.

Election fraud,

Served imprisonment,

Who was she married to? what waas he?

I urge all of the REAL Sikh minority on this board not to get entangled into this petty argument that we are seeing everywhere at this time we have a much bigger challenge at hand like releasing a REAL puritan Sikh Channel without the bribes underhand tacttics and politicking

There are some very very wealthy gursikhs that will agree with me on this believe me when I tell you these two or three channels are going to be left in the dust by the new channels if they attempt to manipulate or mislead the panth in any way as will any person connected to these channels.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh,

Message to Admin; The original link is no longer online but I can try to get a copy of letter and scan it in for my brothers and sisters who question it's credibility.

If you watch 847 now you can see Rana and Avtar Singh doing a live show that use to be on Sikh Channel called miri piri at the exact same time (this is no coincidence). I'm fully aware Sikh Channel are not saints but is this what our beautiful guru khalsa panth has come to? Will they continue competing with each other by playing dirty politics and trying to get a upper hand (while our fellow sikhs continue converting to other religions and cults).

All these old wedge, power hungry, useless political fools who have been fighting with each other over the last 27 years are exploiting these channels. These very people claimed (live on air) that they are very loyal to Sikh Channel for the last 2 years and simply switched to Sangat TV on their first live show.

I have very close inside links with both Sikh Channel and Sangat Tv and brothers and sisters don't be fooled thinking they have Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Sikhi at interest.

Sikhi will never grow if Sikh's cannot learn to love and respect each other.

Please forgive me in advance if any offence taken.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

I was shocked to see Rana on Sangat TV as he seemed so loyal to sikh channel. But anyways its not difficult to make out that he is Badal's man. He hosted so many programs with Advocate Inderjit Sangha who is Badal's Uk head on sikh channel. I can't see how such people can be asset to any channel. These people just mislead people into believing they are very knowledgable on sikhi and then slowly introduce their political master's agenda. Sikh channel is not all OK but I can say they keep things balanced very well. They expose bitter truths of punjab boldly in panthic way. They hold really good talk shows both in punjabi and english, both for old and young. I do get annoyed when they have some people who just can't hear anything against Badal , but then thats just a tiny part which is not so difficult to ignore.

And on Sangat TV on inaugration day of live programming Rana hosted show with that badal's man Inderjit Singh Sangha. Not sure how that can be good for Sangat channel or sikhs. I think its a shame for Sangat channel that they needed people like rana and Sangha on their very first day of live programming. And this guy Inderjit Sangha never introduces himself as Badal's Uk head just so that people trust what he says before he starts infiltrating anything with "accomplishments" of Badal in Punjab.

Sikh TV on the other hand is becoming more of a cultural channel rather than sikh channel. I have seen punjabi filmi songs on it.

Rana's ok but he suits the over censored approach of sangat tv anyway. Let's see if the competition of these 2 channels produce better quality presenters. Sikh tv on the other hand need to buck up, they're cashing in on gagandip singh's death, but once that's over they've nothing much to offer.

I think we'll be just left with Sikh Channel and Sangat Tv and the competitive streak should help produce better quality of programmes.

Just to make the Sangat aware. Sangat Television are not poaching Sikh Channel Presenters and Staff...

If you really want to know the REAL story, then why not phone into the Sangat TV studio?

0121 760 0000... Simple :)

Please do not run after hearsays...

Also, all presenters have left on their OWN will. No force has been given by Sangat Television.

I believe it is best to keep quiet.
