    UK Panjabi-Sikh youth led a meeting in Smethwick on Sunday evening to address the problems facing UK Sikh youth.

    It was attended by prominent figures from the Panjabi-Sikh community including original Sher-e-Panjab hierarchy and Babbar Khalsa members.

    Calls were made to re-establish vigilante group Sher-e-Panjab, which was officially disbanded in 1997. Since 1997 the name Sher-e-Panjab (SP) has been hijacked by hooligans who have damaged the work previously undertaken by SP.

    This was one of the key factors that led to the recent Handsworth Vaiskahi Mela riot.

    An original SP Headhunter spoke to Sarabha Panjab

    “We started SP back in the 70’s to combat violence and intimidation facing the Panjabi-Sikh community. Many brave young men stood up to racist skinhead attacks and later on fanatic Muslims. We never bowed down to either one.”

    “Once SP gained the respect of the community and was feared by racists, we had everyone trying to jump on the bandwagon. Before we knew it, every tom, **** and harry claimed to be SP”

    “The aim was to protect our community but it became connected with hooliganism, crime and the drug scene!”

    “That’s when we officially disbanded SP, and I think because of that the Panjabi-Sikh community suffered. With a steady increase in racist attacks and abuse of Sikh girls, I have been requested many times by the youth to re-establish SP”

    “The violence and bloodshed at the recent Vaiksahi Mela demonstrated the lack of leadership and respect within the Panjabi-Sikh community. Inter-fighting is weakening our spirit, we need to unite.”

    shere panjab was not disdanded shere panjab has been working to help sikhs community for many years. SP started 1989 not in the 70 these people who had meeting at smethwick has nothing to do with sp these people were not born when sp started shere panjan is khalistan. ask the people that went prison for SP, shere panjab can only be disbanded by people who started it and that went to prison. so do not list to these people who say that sp was disbanded in 1997. there were the people that were kick out of sp in 1997.for going agains the rules of sp.
