    Sir Mota Singh grabs 'Pride of Sikh Community' award


    fullstory

    London, May 2 (PTI)[/B] Sir Mota Singh QC, first Indian-origin Sikh to be knighted this year by the Queen for his services to the administration of justice in the UK, has been chosen for the Pride of Sikh Community Award.

    Rami Ranger, MBE, President of the British Sikh Association presented the award to Sir Mota Singh at a function organised to celebrate Vaisakhi at South Ruislip here.

    Recipient of a number of lifetime achievement awards, Sir Mota Singh went into Chambers here to practise at the Bar in 1965. Within just 11 years, Singh was appointed a Deputy Judge, Queen's Counsel, a Recorder of the Crown Courts and then a Circuit Judge.

    He was the first from a minority ethnic group to occupy such a high position.

    Ranger said Sir Mota Singh was the first turbaned Sikh Judge in Britain and never had his judgement challenged in the higher courts.

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!
