I thought Leftists reject faith?
That’s the mindset of Left. If you can’t answer the debate with solid, intelligent argumentation, attack, attack and attack the opposition any which way you can, even if it means slinking to the lowest of lows, and attack on a personal level.
NOTE: The Left is in fact a religious ideology, as all utopian belief systems.
My forefathers battled against this Islam-inspired intolerance, and Sikhs played a large part in causing the downfall of the Mughal Empire. So I am rightly proud of my faith and its glorious history.
Although I am not a practicing Sikh myself, I consider Guru Granth Sahib Ji to be my Guru. This religion has taught me a lot, and continues to be an inspiration to me.
But some people seem to have a problem with that. I’ve been attacked and insulted by a variety of unpleasant characters. This includes some individuals who tried (and failed) to align themselves with the EDL, various groups of national socialists who don’t appreciate that the EDL does not support their warped forms of nationalism, and the usual far-Left Islam-apologists.
I really don’t pay that much attention to the vicious personal gossip that is spread about me by the UAF and co, because I don’t have time to waste on organisations that are built on nothing but lies. They don’t deserve my attention. But when this rubbish is being spread by fellow Sikhs and could potentially affect my family life, I do feel that I must act – that I must make my position clear.
Sikhs Against the EDL have done nothing but attack me. They have held up placards calling me a ‘skinhead’ and say that I should be locked up. I’m not a skin head, I’ve just gone bald – it happens. And if they believe that anyone that says anything they disagree with should be locked up, how far away are they from those Muslim extremists who (between burning poppies and insulting British soldiers) find time to call for an Islamic state?
Freedom of speech is important, and I won’t let these people try to blackmail me into silence. They’ve even threatened that they will go the Sikh Governing body at Amritsar, and to the Jathadar of Sri Akal Takhat Sahib, to ask that I am excommunicated from the Sikh Panth. This basically means that they are threatening to try and get me kicked out of the Sikh religion. Since when did people lose the right to belong to whichever religion they choose?
