I mean, they don't HAVE to go see the play ... just because THEY disagree with it, they assume it's OK to riot and cause mayhem. This attitude sickens me. SIKHS IN RIOT FURY AT THEATRE Dec 20 2004 By Rod Chaytor HUNDREDS of Sikhs stormed a theatre staging a controversial play. Riot police clashed with religious followers who burst into the foyer, setting off alarms, smashing windows and hurling eggs. Nearly 1,000 rioters had gathered outside Birmingham Repertory Theatre after travelling from all over the country. They were furious about the play Behtzi - whose Punjabi title means dishonour - which portrays rape, murder and abuse inside a Sikh temple. Three police were hurt and three men arrested for public order offences. The theatre came under attack, just before 7pm on Saturday night and the play had to be abandoned Trouble spilled into the street and police sealed off the area. A witness said: "The crowd went crazy when they managed to storm into the Rep." Yesterday it was unclear whether future performances would go ahead. Meetings are due today between the police, the Rep and members of the Sikh community.
