    Hey everybody,

    I find it quite hilarious and disturbing how biased and one-sided Wikipedia entries are about topics related to sikhi and especially with regards to the "khalistan" movement and anything related to 84 and beyond. Does anyone else feel the same way?

    Case in point: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khalistan_movement#Support_from_outside_India

    The citations are certainly official sources but extremely biased. Certainly none of the human rights perspective and work around independent organizations etc is covered. It's funny how easy it is for them to blanket call all of it "terrorism." I mean if people keep citing the official indian figures for the death toll in bluestar........... lol

    A tangible way we can change this is to start making wikipedia accounts and making it happen. Does anyone out here already contribute to wikipedia?

    Yes, I do, but very rarely and, that too on subjects that I profess qualified to do so academically; more policing if you like than contributing. General snoop around Sikh as a system of belief appears to be consistent with Sikh ideals. As regards socio-political, I'm not well versed to comment - sorry !
     
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!
