    This is a new television program. Alyona interviews Rajeep Singh Jolly, a Sikh activist. The interview starts at 3:50 minutes, after a discussion of Hamid Kharzai. It is short.


    The Alyona Show Episode three features an interview with a Sikh activist who explains the persistent challenges Sikhs face in the United States. From being called a "terrorist" or "Muslim," Sikhs have fallen victims to racial profiling and discrimination since September 11th. And to add insult to injury Sikhs are not allowed to join the U.S. military. But has that always been the case? And how do most Sikhs react to people's ignorance? Find out in this episode.

    Then, what's with all the bickering on cable news networks? Why the finger pointing? Alyona takes a closer look at the media wars in America.
    And is print journalism going the way of the dinosaur? One man's dream of becoming a newspaper journalist says "not so fast!" Hear the "war of words" between a blogger and a newspaper fanatic on the Alyona Show.

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!
