It may be difficult for you and others who have grown up not knowing a single Sikh to understand many aspects of the Sikh way of life. I don't dispute that. Once upon a time, I did not know a single Sikh either.

What is it that makes Le Devoir influential - its command of journalistic principles in a free society? Or bowing to its readership's biases? Sikhs have been part of Canadian society since the end of the 19th Century. Sikhs have immigrated in large numbers to western, eastern and central provinces. Could Le Devoir be simply boosting the political insularity of Quebec? Unlike Sikh immigrants of days now and then, Quebec has a "proved" history of extremism and separatism?

p/s You did the right thing by asking questions. My personal reaction to the Le Devoir article comes from on the ground experience in Quebec. I had the impression there was little desire to "decipher" the ways and beliefs of others by the French-speaking majority. I observed a noticeable tendency to reject out of hand linguistic and cultural differences.

Proclaimed Sikh and Hindu ‘leaders’ supported Quebec Soccer Turban ban

Press Release:


lamba-300x207.jpg


Recently there have been aggressive demands by some Canadian Sikh groups to allow Quebec soccer players to wear turbans and to lambaallow sharp knives (kirpans) to be worn within the Quebec National Assembly.

Such demands must be firmly resisted because they are illegitimate aspirations being promoted by fundamentalist Sikh groups who support the right to lobby for what many see as a genocidal cause.

Specifically, the World Sikh Organization (Canada), which has criticized the Quebec Soccer Federation and National Assembly, also supports the right to lobby for ‘Khalistan’.

‘Khalistan’ was a mythical Sikh nation to be carved out of the world’s largest democracy, India. It was envisioned as a pure Sikh nation, cleansed of the six million or so non-Sikhs who reside in Punjab state. Thousands of Hindus, as well as moderate Sikhs, were slaughtered and ethnically cleansed in the genocidal Khalistan terrorist campaign.

Many Khalistan terrorist groups had bases in Islamic Pakistan and were allied with Islamic jihadi groups. Their tactics of rape and slaughter were coordinated with and mirrored many Islamic jihadi methods.

Fundamentalist jihadi Khalistanis can make these outrageous demands because parts of English Canada (especially Ontario and BC) have been inundated by floods of fundamentalist Sikh immigrants. During the 80s and 90s, the intelligence services of India warned Canadians that fundamentalist Sikh jihadis promoting the cause of ‘Khalistan’ were often filing false refugee claims to gain Canadian citizenship.

Despite these warnings, Canadian political parties salivating for votes allowed many of these noxious activists to enter. Settling in Ontario and BC, they were responsible for destroying Air India 192, slaughtering 330 mostly Hindu Canadian women and children.

One of the suspects, Mr Reyat, demanded the slaughter of 50,000 Hindu citizens before the bombing.

The Khalistan movement was crushed in India because the majority of Sikhs there were revulsed by the Khalistan jihadis. Heroic Sikh soldiers like KPS Gill assisted in the defeat of Khalistani jihadists.

Here in Canada, renowned author and the true leader of moderate Sikhs Dr Bikram Lamba has denounced the brouhaha over turbans in soccer leagues. He has clearly stated the Sikh religion does not demand the wearing of turbans or carrying of the kirpan, and that certain ‘Taliban like elements’ are pushing these agendas of division.

Quebec has heroically resisted these challenges to civil society. The hunger for fundamentalist Sikh votes has exposed English Canada and corrupted political parties there.

lol Ron Banerjee tells it "like it is."

Hello?

"salivation"
?

Do, future respondents, carefully consider how you reply. The agents of unrest have thousands of eyes and are looking for opportunities to flame the net. There is not enough saliva in Canada to dampen the heat.

From the SRM (Sikh Rehat Maryada - the Sikh "rule book") - Official English translation:

Section Four
CHAPTER X
Living in Consonance with Guru's Tenets (Gurmat Rehni)
Article XVI
t. For a Sikh, there is no restriction or requirement as to dress except that he must wear Kachhehra (A drawer type garment fastened by a fitted string round the waist, very often worn as an underwear.) and turban. A Sikh woman may or may not tie turban.

End of argument.
