    London is home to the largest Sikh temple outside India. A group of UK parliamentarians have set up a new group to help represent British Sikhs.
    Peers and MPs hope the group will help improve government decisions about issues affecting the Sikh community.

    The All Party Parliamentary Group for UK Sikhs (APPG) will be chaired by Wolverhampton South West MP Rob Marris.

    "The level of interest shown in the APPG from all parties is an excellent sign," he said, adding he hoped women and young people would contribute.

    Mr Marris added that he hoped Gurdwaras and other Sikh organisations would work with the APPG to ensure their views were properly presented to government.

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!
