Crimes against Sikhs left out of Tory action plan

Government ignores ‘clear institutional racism’ against Sikh community

ATTACKS on Sikhs have been left out of the government’s hate crime action plan, which shows that they face “clear institutional racism,” the chair of the Sikh Federation said yesterday.

The federation has already written to Prime Minister Theresa May, Home Secretary Amber Rudd and Communities and Local Government Secretary Sajid Javid about the crimes targeting the “visible Sikh community,” Bhai Amrik Singh said.

But despite the federation sharing the results of a survey revealing the scale of hate crime directed at Sikhs, he said the community had been “ignored” in the government’s plans to tackle crime and discrimination.

Mr Singh praised Labour MP Preet Gill, who challenged Ms Rudd over the matter at a meeting of the home affairs select committee on Tuesday.

The Birmingham Edgbaston MP, who chairs the all-party parliamentary group for UK Sikhs, grilled Ms Rudd over why her religious group had been left out of the Hate Crime Action Plan and Race Disparity Audit.

She raised the case of Sikh dentist Dr Sarandev Bhambra, who almost had his hand severed when he was attacked by a machete-wielding neonazi in north Wales in 2015.

Fascist Zack Davies was jailed for life after being found guilty of attempted murder for trying to behead Dr Bhambra in a supermarket in the town of Mold.

This case study was included in the draft action plan, but “apparently No 10 took this out,” Ms Gill said.

The Home Secretary was unable to explain why this case study had been edited out.

The Sikh Federation said it was “dismayed” that the plan appeared to have been written “as though the estimated 750,000 British Sikh community did not exist.”

Mr Singh said Ms Gill “has exposed there is clear ‘institutional racism’ by government departments when it comes to Sikhs that are both a religion and ethnic group.

“It is unacceptable both the Hate Crime Action Plan that focused on religions and the Race Disparity Audit that concentrated on ethnic groups have failed to comment on Sikhs.”

A recent study on hate crime revealed an escalation of violence against non-Muslim British men when they are perceived to look ‘like a Muslim’: here.

SIKH POLITICIAN GOES VIRAL A Canadian politician is winning praise on social media this week for his surprising response to a racist attack at Sunday’s MuslimFest in Mississauga.

SIKHS and Labour MPs have demanded an independent public inquiry into the alleged cover-up of the British military’s involvement in the 1984 massacre at the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India: here.

A CAMPAIGN group calling for justice over the Amritsar massacre, in which British colonial troops murdered hundreds of Indians, is seeking a formal apology from the government: here.
