Theresa May New Uk Prime Minister Good Or Bad For Sikhs?

8 posts in this topic

Since she is the new prime minister of the UK now and going to be in office for another 4 years unless another general election is called.

Is she going to be good thing for British Sikhs or bad?

Judging by her track record she has done a reasonable job as a home secretary keeping the UK safe but she seems to have an agenda that is very dangerous in terms of spying by the state on all citizens and bringing in legislation that discriminates against men. She also was in charge when those "go home" vans were going around and raided a Sikh gurdwara in luton looking for illegal immigrants just after the very short and whitewashed report on thatchers British govt collusion with indira's indian govt in organizing operation blue star against the Sikh religion. She also brought in new home office rules that discriminated against non-EU citizens coming into the UK especially if you wanted to marry someone outside the EU but now have to earn over £18k and have £10k in savings.

I see very real prospect of riots and social disorder coming in the short to long term with oppression and tension rising in the UK between different communities due to the authoritarian agenda people like Theresea May have.

Any political leader is going to be a mess for their "own" people in the current social climate. I think we're way, way down the pecking order of priority. Just watch and see I suppose.

In return for contracts and business expansion into India's growing market

Are politicians ever good for anyone but helping themselves?

In 2014 Theresa May spoke at the General Assembly of the Sikh Council UK. She also unveiled statues of Sikh soldiers at the National Sikh Heritage Centre in Derby in 2014.

In April 2016 Theresa May signed the papers to de-proscribe the International Sikh Youth Federation (ISYF).

This could be turning point in Anglo-Sikh relations.....

    • Anyone else notice where these emergent trends will end? 
    • I don't remember who told me perhaps it was my uncle but the main problem with many Sikhs in the military is that in general we are honest and not cut throat. Someone mentioned that an individual in the military had noticed this and thus he claimed that one Sikh in particular along with other Sikhs weren't savvy enough with politics to rise the ranks even though that particular individual more than deserved it. This is an important tactic even more so than being able to shoot a gun.  What I'm saying is your service is what yoy personally make it because there are rules and regulations in every western country and if something occurs that isn't just, you have the power to shed light on it.  I agree with not being manipulated but I don't think the solution is to not join the military at all nor do I think it would help change that mentality. The thing about serving in military in USA GB Aus CAN ECT is that there are international laws and the discretion of ranks and foot soldiers on how they will carry out missions. Look at Harjit Sajjan he's representative of how Canada, a country who helped USA in the wars, helped carry out certain operations while saving troop and civilian lives. You underestimate the power of an independent thinking sovereign individual. No banner can change that. I dislike this deal making culture. A while back I tried to have a rational discussion about Gurdas Man's new song. The individual I disagreed with trying to rile up feminazis in hopes they would spearhead the crusade against Mann. The writer wrote that Mann's song was somehow sexist because it portrayed the mom neglecting her kids and having substance abuse problem. Point is his plan to make a silent deal of give and take in hopes that his begging to feminazis would help him crusade against Mann failed horribly.  This is the same mentality Sikh coalition type of orgs have they think bending over to Islamophobia brigade will end up helping somehow. Similar to how Muslims are using Sikhs and BLM to white wash their own image it's at the expense of us and I would argue other people allied in the silent deal of supporting each other.  I may be wrong but I think we should be above this for the issues that are most important for us. Instead of using service as a bargaining chip military service should be independent as a means of protecting your home and further becoming an asset to the Panth. In that process individuals automatically become powerhouse for pushing and acting on our narrative.  This applies to any field really but since we are talking about military service only mentioned that.    I don't disagree with much of what you say but I think there is a fundamental flaw in assuming that military service translates into what you're saying bro      
    • “Members of our sect are strictly forbidden from hosting a reception party and accepting gifts from relatives and friends. There is no dowry. The bride does not take anything with her to the in-laws’ house. We solemnise marriages en masse, at a cost equivalent to Re 1.20, ”   How hard would it really be for Sikhs to do this? It's a sad day when even Ghadars ; (naamdhari) are more loyal to their Ghadari than some who consider themselves Sikhs and not Ghadars, to their Sikhi, but everything else was completely wrong from the Havan to a false Anand Karaj focused on Dalip Singh instead of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
