    Re: Row over school closures for Muslim Hindu and Sikh holidays (Daily Telegraph)

    Over in SINGAPORE..i heard over the grapevine that the Elements about SIKHISM that were included in the Govt School Curriculum..have been REMOVED due to Complaints from PUNJABI CHRISTIANS who dont want SIKHISM taught to them. Since Sikhism was taught in tandem with Punjabi to cater to demands from PUNJABI STUDENTS..when a "majority" of Punjabis..vote to say NO to sikhism/Punjabi..the Govt has no choice...
    The Punjabi Christians now attend Christian classes in ENGLISH !!..and the Punjabi SIKHS are out in the cold...
    In the BEGINNING..when the Christians began to make INROADS among SIKHS..they encouraged Bibles in Punjabi, even Long kesh/dastaars (aka Nijhar Jatt style), even change of names from singh/kaur not necessary...anything acceptable so as to not caue undue alarm..NOW they show their TRUE COLOURS !! Malaysian SIKHS... should learn a nd beware !! Exact Same tactics are being used among malaysian sikh children..
