Thanks for taking the time to come back and clear up some of my queries.
I'd initially thought that you could have been one of three types of person; a straight forward Racist ( clearly not the case, my apologies for saying so ); a Muslim - not always a friend of the Sikh - or a moderate Sikh.
Initially you called him a racist, good thing he says he is a moderate sikh because if he was some other religion he would be obviously be racist.
There is a substantial ommission from your comments, best summed up as follows:
"In the last two world wars 83,005 turban wearing Sikh soldiers were killed and 109,045 were wounded. They all died or were wounded for the freedom of Britain and the world, and during shell fire, with no other protection but the turban, the symbol of their faith."
(General Sir Frank Messervy K. C. S.I, K. B. E., C. B., D. S. O.)
"The Sikh Regiment in the Second World War"
Sikhs have fought bravely, and died for HMG which IMO more than counters episodes from the 19th century.
So have alot of other religion/races they are not unique
You posted earlier, ""So, who in the Sikh community is pushing for a Sikh Regiment? It is the Khalistani separatist amritdharis who are proposing the idea" and when I asked - "really? says who?" suggested that I do the research.
Frankly, if you put up an argument, its down to you to back it up.
Strange that when I asked why you thought he was a racist you just said it was your opinion you didn't initally back it up.
You make various other cheap jibes about your posts being "over my head", "It is ludicrous to compare my knowledge of the subject with your 'experience' acquired by having worked in Southall." etc, but fail to grasp that I am actually standing up for Sikhs in the UK.
Just why are you standing up for them are they more deserving than any other religion/race in the uk?
Can I ask; are you actually a UK-based Sikh? The reason that I ask is that I do not see any rampant Sikh militism on the streets of the UK, but if you do than fair enough.
Like I said, you have failed to grasp that I'm actually standing up for Sikhs.
You do sound to me slightly McCarthyite by the way...
