US Sikh community shocked by Conn. School shooting

OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Sikh (seek) temple that was the target of an August attack is expressing condolences over the Connecticut school shooting.
A statement released Friday says the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin is sending its "best intention and energy" to the parents of the children and the victims' families.
In August, a white supremacist killed a half-dozen people at the Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee before killing himself.
Amardeep Kaleka, whose father was among the Sikhs killed, says he can "feel the pain" that the families are going through.
In the statement, Rajwant Singh, chairman of the Sikh Council on Religion and Education, says Sikhs are "heartbroken today."
He appealed to all Sikh places of worship to hold candlelight vigils and to offer prayers for the families this weekend.

Elementary School Shooting: Sikh Community Understands Grief in Newtown, Fox News



OAK CREEK, WI, USA (December 14, 2012)–It’s difficult not to be affected in some way by the mass shooting that took place in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday, December 14th. We can all sympathize. In the city of Oak Creek, they can empathize too.
Kanwardeep Kaleka is the nephew of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin president who is one of the six that died on a Sunday in early August 2012.
Kaleka tells FOX6 News what he went through then and what many in Newtown may be going through now is terrifying.
“For me personally there, there is a shock. You just don’t believe it. I thought my uncle was alive that first day,” said Kaleka.
Once the realization of what happened settled in, Kaleka dealt with a myriad of emotions.
“You’re trying to, to grapple with the anger of why do these things happen and you even question your faith to some degree,” said Kaleka.
Though he still feels the pain of loved ones lost, Kaleka has come to terms with what happened. Right now, that may seem like an impossible feat for many of those affected in Newtown, CT. However, Kaleka believes things will change with the right focus.
“The one big thing I can suggest to that community is working to try to make this world a better place. I mean after something like this happens, the only thing you can really feel is what can I do to prevent other people from being affected by this,” said Kaleka.
While this tragedy may propel the conversation forward Kaleka feels it shouldn’t only be those affected taking part. Nor should we want for the next mass shooting to make real change.

US President Barack Obama wept as he addressed the nation in the aftermath of the school shootings in Connecticut.
Mr Obama paused repeatedly as he struggled to keep his composure while speaking of the children who had been killed and the milestones in their lives they would never have - birthdays, graduations, weddings.
"Our hearts are broken today," he said, at times using a finger to wipe tears at the corners of his eyes.

Mr Obama said he had reacted to news of the elementary school shooting first as a parent.
He added that he and First Lady Michelle would do what any other parent in America would do - "hug our children a little tighter".
"There is not a parent in America who does not feel the same overwhelming grief I do," he said.
Mr Obama called for "meaningful action" regardless of politics.
"As a country, we have been through this too many times," he said in the televised address from the White House.
Many of those killed in the rampage were between the ages of five and 10.

US Shooting: Terrified Children Hid In Closet

Witnesses of a US school shooting say some children hid in a closet while others cowered under desks.

Gunshots, children hiding in a closet, sirens, shattered glass - and desperate parents trying to find out if their daughters and sons were alive.
Witnesses have described a horrific scene at a shooting spree at the Sandy Hook Elementary School  in Connecticut, where at least 20 children were killed.
"I saw policemen - lots of policemen in the hallway with guns. The police took us out of the school," Vanessa Bajraliu, a nine-year-old fourth grader, told the local newspaper Hartford Courant.
"We were told to hold each others' hands and to close our eyes. We opened our eyes when we were outside."
Her 17-year-old brother, Mergim Bajraliu, heard the shots from his nearby home and then the sirens of police cars at the scene.
He rushed to the school, where he said he saw a badly injured girl being carried out, another one with blood on her face.
Some teachers put the students in a closet until police officers told them it was safe to leave the building, US news reports said.
Other children were told by policemen to run away from their classroom and keep going until they reached a firehouse nearby.
"I heard gunshots; I was under a desk with three or four other people," Luie Munguia, an eight-year-old third-grader, was quoted as saying in the reports.
One teacher locked the door and told the students to stand in the corner, said parent Richard Wilford, whose son Richie heard the gunshots and recounted the scene to his father.

Terrified students were crying and holding hands as their teachers escorted them away from the school.
Melissa Makris said her 10-year-old son, Philip, saw what looked like a body under a blanket as he fled the school.
As news of the shooting broke out, parents rushed to the school.
They were in anguish over the fate of their children, some frantically speaking on their mobile phones, others weeping.
"What does a parent think about coming to a school where there's a shooting? It's the most terrifying moment of a parent's life … you have no idea," said Mr Wilford.
Parents whose children emerged from the school unharmed cried and hugged them.
Residents of Newtown, a small quiet town, were in shock, as police and federal officials surrounded the school and sirens rang out in the chilly day.

Sikh soldier becomes first to guard Queen in turban - The Sun

SIKH Jatinderpal Singh Bhullar has become the first soldier to guard the Queen wearing a turban instead of a bearskin hat.

The 25-year-old, who joined the Scots Guards this year, has been given permission to wear the religious headdress outside Buckingham Palace.
He was seen standing guard and parading outside the palace for the first time this morning.
The Sun told earlier this month how the former bricklayer, from Birmingham, broke 180 years of tradition.
He is not the first Sikh to take part in guarding Buckingham Palace — but others wore traditional bearskin hats.
At the time, he said: “Conducting public duties in my turban is a great honour.
“I am very proud to be a member of the Household Division, and to be the first Sikh guardsman to mount guard in a turban will be the best thing in my life, especially as a member of the Scots Guards.”

But he has reportedly been mocked by comrades, though no complaint has been made. It came as some in the Scots Guard have claimed the whole company will look “ridiculous” if one member does not wear a bearskin.
David Cuthill, one retired officer, told a newspaper: “It should be the regiment first and religion second. A Guardsman is not a Guardsman if he’s not wearing a bearskin.
“Hundreds of years of tradition should be protected. I appreciate his predicament but if all the other Guardsmen are in bearskins and he is in a turban, it is going to look ridiculous.”

But CO Lt Col Robert Howieson praised Bhullar, saying: “He will be a welcome addition. The precedent for Sikh soldiers wearing turbans on parade was set long ago.”
Guardsman Bhullar’s dad Surinder, 47, from Slough, Berks, said recently: “He deserves respect and he will stay strong. That includes wearing his turban instead of a bearskin, no matter what other soldiers say. He is observing his religion.”

INTERVIEW WITH ARDAMANJIT SINGH.PART 1 United Sikh Media Canada

OUR PARTNER UNITED SIKH MEDIA CANADA'S INTEVIEW WITH ARDAMANJIT SINGH REGARDING SIKH HUMAN RIGHTS POLICE STATE TERROR IN HINDUVTA INDIA
 

Dal Khalsa deplores human rights situation in Hindutva India‏




Amritsar- On the occasion of World Human Rights Day, in a seminar on “Whither Human rights in India” activists of Dal Khalsa and ‘Sikh Youth of Punjab’ reviewed human rights situation in Punjab and India and deplored that international covenants and conventions have not been followed in letter and spirit and urged the United Nations for pro-active intervention in India. 

Addressing a press meet, leaders H S Dhami, Kanwar Pal Singh and Ranbir Singh condemn the travesty of justice in the case of 5 hijackers against whom Indian government has started prosecution, after 31 years, on “sedition charges” ignoring their life imprisonment in Pakistan for the same offence.

Speakers condemned the state’s move to upset the home and hearth of two of the five –Satnam Singh and Tejinder Singh, who have since returned to Punjab, are peacefully living a dignified life after their long and scary prison sentences. The other three accused namely Gajinder Singh, Jasbir Singh and Karan Singh are residing out of India because of the prevailing circumstances here.
"After 31 years, our men are being harassed. I must ask the Indian civil society why old cases are being opened up against them now”, said Dhami.  
I want to question them, has anyone punished those who killed thousands of Sikhs in Delhi in 1984. There are hundreds of Sikhs who got disappeared in Punjab, but government has not booked their killers, he added.
"Ours is a peaceful struggle and pushing people to the wall would be dangerous. I appeal to the intelligentsia and the civil society in India to ponder over the serious situation that is emerging because of the trampling of rights of our men," Dhami added.
We are already being robbed of land, honor, resources,” he told a news conference here.  We have no grenade or guns in our hands. Our basic aim is to protect and promote rights and interests of Sikh Nation, he said.
He said however, the governments do not want to address the core issues of Punjab and the Sikhs. Instead, they are treating it as a pure law and order problem, inflicting torture and crushing dissent with full might of the state.
The leaders condemned the unwarranted detention of leaders of Akali Dal Panch Pardhani Bhai Kulvir Singh Barapind and Bhai Daljit Singh under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967. “It is disgusting that these leaders were tortured. The Punjab government must release them.” said Kanwarpal Singh.   

Party’s spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh appealed to government to check criminalisation of politics and stop politicization of police.

Accusing the Punjab government for mocking human rights, another resolution stated that it is unfortunate that the Badal government has installed known violator of human rights, Sumedh Singh Saini as the Director General of Punjab, whose appointment has been censured by the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

Saluting the grit of Manipuri activist Chanu Sharmila, who is on fast for 12 years protesting the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, the gathering appealed to Aung Sang Sui Kyi –the Burmese leader who diplomatically admonished India, to take up her case as she is rightfully the ‘Aung Sang Sui Kyi’ of Manipur.

Condemning the continued house arrest of Kashmiri pro-freedom leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani the organization appealed to India to release the veteran leader. 

The group welcomed the US decision to deny visa to Narendra Modi and appealed to National Commission for Minorities to censure Modi's unequivocal declaration that BJP will have no Muslim candidates in Gujarat.
Regretting the surreptitious execution of Ajmal Kasab, Mr. Dhami apprehended that this may pave way for more persons being sent to the gallows.  He urged India and Pakistan to join the growing number of countries around the world to abolish death penalty.

1st Sikh Guardsman To Wear A Dastaar While Guarding Buckingham Palace & The Queen

Look, no bearskin! Pictured in his uniform for the first time, the Sikh Guardsman allowed to wear turban at the Palace



By Daily Mail Reporter

This is the first picture of Buckingham Palace Guardsman Jatinderpal Singh Bhullar wearing his ceremonial uniform – minus a traditional bearskin.

Scots Guardsman Bhullar will this week break centuries of tradition when he wears a turban adorned with a regimental cap badge on parade outside the Palace.

Last week, The Mail on Sunday revealed how Guardsman Bhullar had suffered abuse over his Sikh religion and turban from comrades, and now a Facebook tribute page has been set up in his honour.

Titled ‘Guardsman Jatinderpal Singh Bhullar: A credit to the nation’, it features pictures of Jatinderpal, along with tributes from friends, relatives and members of the public who support him.
An entry from Guardsman Bhullar himself reads: ‘I am very grateful for whoever set up this page, and may God be with u and every1 else who is liking this page and supporting me.’

Our picture of Bhullar in his turban, red tunic and white buff belt was taken at Wellington Barracks in London’s Birdcage Walk, where he is based with colleagues from his regiment’s ceremonial company,  known as F Company.

The buttons on Bhullar’s tunic are positioned in threes to represent the Scots Guards’ status as the third regiment in the Guards Division’s order of seniority.
A Facebook page was set up in honour of Jatinderpal, pictured second from left with his family, after he suffered abuse at the hands of his comrades

Bhullar’s success in breaking with tradition is considered essential to the regiment’s future, given the changing demographical picture of its recruiting heartlands. By 2018,  it is expected that 25 per cent of the population in these areas will belong to ethnic minorities.

‘The regiment will cease to exist unless it can tap into this resource of potential soldiers in western Scotland and northern England,’ said a source.
‘The Scots Guards must welcome Bhullar and hope his success will encourage other Sikhs and more Muslims to enlist.

‘Bhullar is a hard-working soldier and has won a lot of respect. Nobody pretends this is an easy process for him and there are those who object on traditional grounds to him wearing a turban rather than a bearskin.

‘For them, it is regiment first and religion second and they cannot see beyond that.
‘Bhullar is expected on parade in a black turban adorned with a Scots Guards regimental cap badge early this week. Everyone at Wellington Barracks wishes him all the best.’

Bhullar’s family is delighted. His mother Gurbaxkaur Bhullar, 48, from Slough, Berkshire, said: ‘Jatinderpal called round last Monday to show us some Army photos. My husband Surinderpal was thrilled and said he thought his son looked very striking in his uniform, holding a gun and wearing white gloves.

‘Jatinderpal wanted to join the Army because his grandfather had served in the First World War. We had family pictures of him in his uniform and Jatinderpal would love looking at them.

‘It was a great passion of Jatinderpal’s from a very young age, and he would say when he grew up he wanted to be in the Army and make his country proud of him.

‘We are very proud of him. He  kept himself fit with boxing, weightlifting and going to the gym and  was always on a strict diet. He is very strong.’

A Ministry of Defence spokeswoman said: ‘The Army takes great pride in its diversity and it is its long-term aim to be manned by personnel from all of the UK’s diverse communities. There are a number of Sikhs already in the Army who wear turbans when in uniform.’

Sir Patrick Moore's contribution to the world of astronomy

Related Stories

British astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore has died, aged 89, his friends and colleagues have said.
He "passed away peacefully at 12:25 this afternoon" at his home in Selsey, West Sussex, they said in a statement.
Sir Patrick presented the BBC programme The Sky At Night for over 50 years, making him the longest-running host of the same television show ever.
He wrote dozens of books on astronomy and his research was used by the US and the Russians in their space programmes.
Described by one of his close friends as "fearlessly eccentric", Sir Patrick was notable for his habit of wearing a monocle on screen and his idiosyncratic style.
Sir Patrick presented the first edition of The Sky at Night on 24th April 1957. He last appeared in an episode broadcast on Monday.
A statement by his friends and staff said: "After a short spell in hospital last week, it was determined that no further treatment would benefit him, and it was his wish to spend his last days in his own home, Farthings, where he today passed on, in the company of close friends and carers and his cat Ptolemy.
"Over the past few years, Patrick, an inspiration to generations of astronomers, fought his way back from many serious spells of illness and continued to work and write at a great rate, but this time his body was too weak to overcome the infection which set in, a few weeks ago.

Start Quote

Through his regular monthly programmes he was telling us what to look for and what was out there and that was a real inspiration”
Maggie Aderin-Pocock Space scientist
"He was able to perform on his world record-holding TV programme The Sky at Night right up until the most recent episode .
"His executors and close friends plan to fulfil his wishes for a quiet ceremony of interment, but a farewell event is planned for what would have been Patrick's 90th birthday in March 2013."
'Father figure' Patrick Alfred Caldwell-Moore was born at Pinner, Middlesex on 4 Mar 1923.
Heart problems meant he spent much of his childhood being educated at home and he became an avid reader. His mother gave him a copy of GF Chambers' book, The Story of the Solar System, and this sparked his lifelong passion for astronomy.
When war came he turned down a place at Cambridge and lied about his age to join the RAF, serving as a navigator with Bomber Command and rising to the rank of Flight Lieutenant.
But the war brought him a personal tragedy after his fiancee, Lorna, was killed when an ambulance she was driving was hit by a bomb. He never married.
Sir Patrick, who had a pacemaker fitted in 2006 and received a knighthood in 2001, won a Bafta for services to television and was a honorary fellow of the Royal Society.
He was a member of the UK Independence party and, briefly, the finance minister for the Monster Raving Loony Party, and attracted some controversy for his outspoken views on Europe and immigration.
BBC science correspondent Pallab Ghosh said Sir Patrick's appearance sometimes aroused as much comment as his astronomy: "He was six-foot-three, and was once described as having 'an air of donnish dishevelment', with his raised eyebrow, scarcely-brushed hair and poorly-fitting suits.
"His enthusiasm was unstoppable, and on occasions he would talk at 300 words a minute."
Queen guitarist Brian May, who published a book on astronomy written with Sir Patrick, described him as a "dear friend, and a kind of father figure to me".
He said: "Patrick will be mourned by the many to whom he was a caring uncle, and by all who loved the delightful wit and clarity of his writings, or enjoyed his fearlessly eccentric persona in public life.
"Patrick is irreplaceable. There will never be another Patrick Moore. But we were lucky enough to get one."
'Charming and hospitable'
Sir Patrick Moore Sir Patrick, seen here in 1961, helped nurture a public interest in astronomy
Television presenter and physicist Professor Brian Cox posted a message on Twitter saying: "Very sad news about Sir Patrick. Helped inspire my love of astronomy. I will miss him!"
And Dr Marek Kakula, public astronomer at Royal Observatory in Greenwich, described him as a "very charming and hospitable man".
"When you came to his home he would always make sure you had enough to eat and drink. He was full of really entertaining and amusing stories.
"There are many many professional astronomers like me who can actually date their interest in astronomy to watching Patrick on TV, so his impact on the world of professional astronomy as well as amateur is hard to overstate."
