    The Sikh Channel has been rapped by media regulator, Ofcom for broadcasting unbiased coverage during the General Elections earlier this year.

    Ofcom received a complaint that a programme, included a contribution from a Conservative party general election candidate and did not have any contributions from other political parties.

    In its rules and regulations, Ofcom states that if a candidate takes part in an item about his/her particular constituency, or electoral area, then candidates of each of the major parties must be offered the opportunity to take part.

    Ofcom concluded that the broadcaster ensures impartiality is strictly maintained at the time of elections with respect to specific constituencies.

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!
