    CRICKET bad boy Harbhajan Singh has landed in trouble again - but this time for his part in a TV reality show.

    Mona Singh?! Hilarious! :veryhappykaur::veryhappykudi:
    I once had an interesting encounter with a Christian missionary named Mona. Her last name wasn't Singh, though. :veryhappymunda:

    I want to meet this guy! The story of Ravana and Sita is in Sri Guru Granth Sahib by reference. Putting someone under criminal charges for a satire is very difficult for me to grasp. It is one thing to express dismay. It is something else altogether to file criminal charges. This is one cultural divide that I cannot understand.

    I think this gets back to the fact that "India" is a bunch of little principalities and countries held together by Scotch tape and prone to communal violence.

    The Indian government is afraid of this sort of freedom, and, given the level of communal violence in that country, with some good cause.

    Freedom of expression, especially in religious matters, is in the far future in India, if at all. My opinion is that the country will disintegrate before that happens.

    SSA,
    I can'i understand , what is objectionable? the satire, ravana, or dancing with a lady?
    Is Harbhajan the first one wearing such satire, How many devi devtas mockery is being done in feture films and specially the cartoon movies?. Why we make fuss of everything. It seems our sikh leader have no other constructive issues to deal with. Why they involve themselves in such things?

    I want to hear words from people which were calling that targeting Mandira is sexist.Though this news is old but here too It was Harbhajan who was forced to apologise.
    Those who don't know Mona singh too is a sikh and is also very popular household name.
    Sikh leaders did not ask her to apologise.Now may I ask them what they want to say about this type of sexism?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
