[Left: the massive, UAF/SWP-controlled 'Sikhs Against the EDL'. They are reputed to have over seven members. Right: the racist, fascist, ist-ist, Asian-hater, Guramit Singh.]
BRITISH Sikhs have reacted with fury at the failure to charge a spokesman for the English Defence League with causing religiously aggravated harassment, alarm or distress following an Anti-Muslim speech in Peterborough last year. [Are these Sikhs aware that only a single person made that complaint to the police? Can we really make that much of a single complaint when it comes to such a difficult issue?
I have also noticed that this 'Sikhs Against the EDL' group is extremely small, as all these activist groups against the EDL seem to be. Judging by the many photos I’ve seen of it, it is a group of at most eight people. Not only that. I have seen the same faces appear each time, as is the case with the photograph from The Asian Today (above).]
Self-styled EDL leader Guramit Singh was arrested in December following the speech he made at a protest to over 1,000 supporters in Peterborough. [Is that a sarcastic use of ‘self-styled’? The others EDL leaders, Tommy Robinson, Kevin Carroll, etc., have accepted Singh’s leadership position – so what’s with the sarkiness?
It was such an ‘alarming’ and ‘distressing’ speech that even though there were over 1000 EDL, and many sympathetic Peterborough shoppers there (who basically surrounded the static part of the demo and looked on), not a single person was arrested that day.
If Muslims and Leftists are alarmed or distressed by what Guramit said, then so be it. Nazis are alarmed and distressed by anti-Nazi speeches. Paedophiles are alarmed and distressed when they are targeted. Many people are alarmed and distressed when they see a dog with a limp.
In any case, in politics, as in life generally, sometimes it is bound to be the case, and even should be the case, that some people, at some times, will be alarmed and distressed. For a start, there are aspects of Islam and Islamism that are alarming and distressing to a vast amount of people throughout the world. In fact, the EDL is happy to alarm and distress Islamists and Islamoterrorism supporters.]
A video of the speech – in which he insults Islam, the Prophet Muhammad and Allah – is widely available on the internet. [Why can’t a non-Muslim ‘insult’ Islam, Mohammed and Allah? This is a free country. The critique of religion has been part of our country for hundreds of years. And now, all of a sudden, Muslims start using the melodramatic word ‘insult’ solely to kill all criticism of Islam and Mohammed.
Yet what if there are abominable aspects of Islam and Mohammed that should be ‘insulted’ or severely criticised? There are! And what exactly is mean by ‘insult’ in this context? This word is a euphemism for criticism, as least as far as many Muslims are concerned. No wonder Islam has survived so long and has one billion adherents when this eggshell religion is cushioned from all criticism – or ‘insult’. (Forget death for apostasy!)]
But Cambridgeshire police said they were dropping the case following “advice from the Crown Prosecution Service.”
The police decision not to proceed further with his case comes only days after the uproar in the media when Emadur Choudhury, an Islamist extremist, was fined £50 after burning poppies during Remembrance Day last year. [In other words, the police didn’t want to be seen as plain hypocrites. That is, the poppy burners received a paltry traffic-offence fine of £50. After that, could they have really come down hard on Guramit? Of course not. Not only would the EDL have been outraged by that, but the British public would have been too.]
Balwinder Singh Rana from ‘Sikhs Against the EDL’ said the decision not to charge Guramit Singh “smacked of double standards.”
“So, while the media was right to protest against the lenient treatment given to Choudhury for causing an offence to the memory of the fallen soldiers, I think now they should show the same vigour in demanding that Singh should not be allowed to get away for insulting a whole community,” he told The Asian Today. [The poppy burners insulted millions of war dead. They support Islamoterrorism and global Islam. Can these Sikhs really compare that with Guramit’s speech – a speech essentially against Islamoterrorism and Islamic expansionism, sharia law etc? If they think there is equivalence here, they should be ashamed of themselves and no one else should take their pseudo-equivalence seriously.]
“This smacks of ‘double standards’ on behalf of the justice system in this country. [Clearly these Sikhs are not just against the EDL, they have a much broader political agenda up their sleeves. In fact, since their micro demos are within UAF/SWP demos, you must conclude that they are actually members of UAF or the SWP or both.]
“Guramit Singh, by fronting the racist EDL, has only brought shame and embarrassment to the Sikh Community, but most of the community is united in condemning his actions.” [Some of the Sikh community – not all of it! More precisely, to your group of UAF/SWP Sikhs – or SWP-controlled Sikhs.
It doesn’t bother the EDL that some Sikhs are against us. Some Sikhs are for us. Some Sikhs are Nazis. Some are SWP/UAF. Indeed, some Sikhs are Liberals and some are Conservatives.]
Sikh groups and religious institutions across the country have united to condemn the EDL through a joint statement. [Some Sikh groups and some Sikh religious institutions have.
This is strange coming from a religion that was partly created as a defence against Islamic expansionism in India and a religion that has lost numerous members to the relentless onslaught of the Islamic Global Jihad. Then again, there are Jews who speak out for not only Muslim groups, but Islamist groups. There are even some Jews who are sympathetic to the killer-cause of Hamas! So the EDL’s not that impressed by this SWP-controlled anti-EDL Sikh group.]
Varinder Singh, organiser of the ‘Sikhs Against the EDL’ and a signatory of the joint statement said: “It’s a real shame that an individual like Guramit Singh can get away with saying just about anything and bringing our community into disrepute. [It’s called freedom of speech, mate. You know? The thing you don’t have in any Islamic country. So that's why Muslims are getting so hot under the collar. They just can’t stomach freedom. (This is a good lesson to keep mind when you survey what’s going on in the Arab world at the moment. Don’t get too hopeful for democracy in these Muslim countries. Worse may follow. Muslims, and the Arabs who are Muslims, don’t like democracy. Is that racist? No! It’s culturalist.]
“I think that this incident has clearly exposed the EDL for its true fascist nature. [Does this guy really understand what fascism is? I don’t think so. It’s just a word which SWP/UAF types use at the drop of a hat and to defeat any critics or alternatives.] I also feel immensely proud seeing the Sikh community unite against the EDL and hold individuals such as Guramit accountable for their actions. Already we have had many organisations approach us to open and engage in interfaith dialogue with them.
“Looking ahead I think another generation of anti fascists will emerge out of this who will continue to promote pluralism in our local communities.” [What a nauseating soundbite. I’ve changed my mind. This guy is not SWP/UAF – he’s New Labour.]
