    India's protest came after a parade to celebrate Vaisakhi, the Sikh New Year, by Sikh immigrants in Surrey featured a banner terming the assassins of Gandhi as 'martyrs'.

    It is understandable that India would be upset. However, it must be taken into consideration that many people view those two as martyrs, in that many believe she set the whole thing up with Bindrawale on purpose, knowing he would go to extreme measures, thereby giving her an excuse to attempt to destroy the Golden Temple and Akal Tacht. Perhaps many do not want anyone to start thinking along these sorts of lines.
    Cheers,

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!
