    I personally disagree with the campaign championed by MP Tan Dhesi for the creation of a 'Sikh' war memorial in London..

    What do people think about this campaign?

    Yes I think battalions should be recognised but I don't understand why a 'Sikh' specific memorial is required.. In fact I actually think it is a cynical move and I'm quite disappointed with tan dhesi

    Why are people refraining from engaging?

    Providing a context to your thoughts would be helpful. Like what i did in your first post. Not many members may be from UK... perhaps a general lack of interest in this topic...

    Personally, i think, it is important for any upcoming generation to get inspiration from its glorious history. Sikh history needs to be re-established, a history which is mostly untold or mostly unscrupulously told... I see nothing cynical about the move...

    What is cynical in this move?
    What is the premise of your apprehension(s)?
    What are your apprehensions?

    Why disappointment?

    I am sure he is doing much more for the people, who elected him, than just demanding a war memorial... maybe it was a part of his election manifesto...
