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

Recommended Posts

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

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.....

    • Do you have sources for this?
    • In urdu we also use 'Mauze' so i doubt if it is hindi word.It sounds like a persian one.Indians have problem prouncing words which end with sound 'z'.Just like Mumtaz Mehal became Mumtaj Mehal and now just Taj Mehal.
    • i have no issue using persian,hindi,english words in my day to day conversations in punjab.I just though a good opportunity to learn "shuddh" punjabi. 
    • Sikhism needs neither a reformation nor a philosophy of free will. Reformations are for religions that are at a primitive tribal level in the first place. Sikhi starts off with Guru Nanak Ji feeding people langar, and preaching meditation of Satnam. If you start off with capturing war booty and sex slaves killing all the males, yeah, you need a reformation. Philosophy is (mostly) for people trying desperately to understand the universe without real divine knowledge. These types of efforts are called ਸਿਆਣਪਾਂ in Gurbani. (You did you Japji this morning, right?) All of these sianapan don't amount to a hill of beans. We don't have the burning need for philosophy that Westerners do because we can obtain complete knowledge via simran. ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਸੁਝੈ ॥
    • it's my fault, i should have phrased things a bit better. Basically based on the data he gathered same sex couples are more likely to settle into a routine and are less likely to do things out of said routine (such as cheating, which according to the data he gathered was surprisingly low compared to straight couples). By similar attributes I mean people like them in terms of personality and taste. In straight couples you can usually note a sort of polarity in the way they behave and their personalities.  Again this is based on one study, nothing official or on a large scale really.
