    I am posting this story with some misgivings. The details are few. But the things that stand out as they do need confirmation and background, precisely because of the lack of details. For example, what is SFR? What is the army they are talking about? The story about lawsuits over Golden Temple Foods and Akaal Security are not new. If anyone can find a new article that has the needed/relevant/factual information, would you post it here or send me the link. I am almost tempted to call the reporter.

    A Sikh business empire based in New Mexico is undergoing turmoil and lawsuits after the death of the Sikh religious sect’s leader in 2004.


    The litigious battle is for “control of a large private army that has won more than $3.5 billion in government contracts, ownership of a trans-Atlantic natural foods empire and, not least, the fate of an influential decades-old religious sect called Sikh Dharma,” Corey Pein writes.


    These include allegations that Guruchander Singh took computers full of information from Sikh Dharma’s Española campus after threatening that employees must sign a new loyalty oath or lose their jobs.


    The case of who controls the empire of the late Yogi Bhajan is currently going on in Portland, Oregon.


    New Mexicans may be most familiar with Akal Security, one of the companies owned by the Sikh sect.

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!
