    Turban Campaign » ‘Sikhs Against the EDL’ to join counter-demonstration in Bristol:

    Sikhs from London, West Midlands and Cardiff will be marching against the English Defence League (EDL) in Bristol on Saturday 14th July under the banner of ‘Sikhs Against the EDL’.

    They will be there to support the counter demonstration against the planned EDL march in Bristol on the same day. The counter demonstration is being organised by a multi-cultural, multi-racial and multi-faith organisation known as ‘We Are Bristol’. It is a broad-based network of local community groups, political organisations and trade unions. Their aim is to ‘celebrate diversity and oppose racism and fascism’ and to show the EDL that they are not welcome in Bristol.

    The EDL is a racist organisation that particularly targets Muslims. In the last three years, since it was formed, they have staged more than 90 provocative demonstrations in towns and cities around the country, attempting to stir up anti-Muslim racism and hatred. Many of their marches have ended in violence when in some cases they have broken free from police cordons and rampaged down the streets attacking cars shops and passers-by.

    They claim to oppose ‘extremism’ but EDL supporters have been filmed chanting ‘Burn a mosque down’. A series of arson and other physical attacks on mosques and community centres have taken place in areas where the EDL is active. In Dudley, after one of their marches, a Hindu temple and a Sikh elderly gentleman were also attacked by their supporters.

    EDL leader ‘Tommy Robinson’ (real name Stephen Yaxley Lennon) and a number of other leading members are former member of the fascist British National Party (BNP). Many more former members of the BNP, the National Front and other fascist organisations are also active in the EDL and often EDL supporters have been photographed giving Hitler’s ‘sieg heil’ salute.

    Recently the EDL announced a formal alliance with the British Freedom Party (BFP), a breakaway group from the BNP but with equally fascist policies who want to ‘scrap the Equalities Act and ban all manifestations of religious and cultural separatism’.

    The ‘Sikhs Against the EDL’ campaign was formed about 18 months ago in response to some Sikh youth being recruited by the EDL. The campaign immediately received wide support from some major Sikh and Hindu organisations, MPs, councillors as well as many other prominent people from the community. As a result of the campaign most of the Sikh supporters of the EDL now seem to have disappeared.

    However, six weeks ago the EDL tried to hijack a Sikh protest outside the Luton police station when some 200 to 300 Sikhs had gathered to protest at ‘police inaction’ regarding an alleged attack upon of a Sikh girl by a Muslim man. A dozen EDL members, including their leaders, with some wearing headscarves, also joined the protest and tried their best to inflame the situation by blaming all Muslims rather than the individual concerned. The situation worsened for the EDL when they were requested to leave by local Sikh leaders. Since then a young Muslim man has been charged with ‘common assault’.

    Balwinder Singh Rana, spokesperson for the ‘Sikhs Against the EDL’ campaign said: ”The EDL may pretend that they are friends of the Sikhs. But they cannot fool us. Their alliance with the BFP has now totally exposed their true nature. They are no different than the BNP as they are against all minorities and are opposed to multiculturalism. We should never fall for their ‘divide & rule’ policies and we should oppose them where ever they show up to spread their racist poison.”

    He further added: “At times like these when there is a deep economic crisis with mass unemployment and massive public spending cuts, they have always looked for scapegoats to blame. In the 30s it were the Jews, in the 70s and 90s it were the Blacks and the Asians and now they have found a convenient scape-goat – the Muslims. But we should never forget that today it’s the Muslims and tomorrow it would be all of us.”

    EDL is a racist organization no doubt in that! Their lower rung is intellectually bankrupt and simply put they are - hooligans! It sounds logical that after pakis and muslims they will go after others!

    However, Sikhs and Hindus should tread carefully when dealing with pakis and their propaganda machinery, because in the end pakis will get out scott-free, and Hindu and Sikhs may find themselves being termed as Anti-Briton!!

    Be more careful while dealing with pakis and islamists!

    Terror suspects allegedly planned to attack EDL



    A car was stopped by police on June 30 on the MI near Sheffield in a routine check and impounded on suspicion of having no insurance. Earlier that day, the EDL had held a demonstration in nearby Dewsbury.

    Three men appeared in court yesterday charged with the preparation of terrorism acts. Another four men continue to be questioned by police.

    Jewel Uddin 26, Omar Mohammed Khan, 27, and Mohammed Hasseen, 23, all from Birmingham, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court yesterday.
    Dressed in black sweatshirts and dark trousers, they spoke only to confirm their names and ages.

    The court heard how on June 30 police impounded a Renault Laguna after it was stopped on the M1 motorway heading south.

    A routine search two days later at the pound allegedly unearthed sawn off shotguns, the makings of a pipebomb containing ball bearings and nails and a cache of swords, knives and machetes.

    There was also a note that allegedly described the EDL as the “enemies of Allah”. The three men were arrested the day after the discovery in the car.

    They remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on July 31. Four other men were also arrested last week and remain in custody.

    Officers have until Wednesday to charge, release or apply for a warrant of further detention for three of them. The fourth man can be held until Thursday.

    I'm reiterating, be careful while dealing with pakis and islamists! They have two wings one the common man/ moderate/ family-man who is oblivious what mullahs are plotting and other wing is the Jihadi wing, which is used to conduct Genocides and Terrorist activities! Don't go with the emotional flow!

    Find your own ground to protest against EDL if the need arises, protest without pakis and islamists. I know they are very organized and they can mobilize millions in minutes, whereas you cannot even mobilize few hundred in days, this is the dilemma!

    Always remember less is good, if you have a solid ground for protest. You don't require a mujaheddin army to burn down a city to protest! Be extremely careful!
