CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE MAKES FABRICATED & ABSURD CLAIMS WITH OFFENSIVE REMARKS AGAINST PEACEFUL UK SIKHS – LEGAL ACTION MAY FOLLOW
Via: Sikh Federation UK
It’s shameful and embarrassing on the Conservative Party and all Sikhs linked to the Tories that such an ignorant badly informed candidate and member is spreading fabricated bogus propaganda on behalf of the Indian Government, highlighting more evidence of India’s political influence over the UK Government.
The UK Sikh community demand Mr Amandeep Boghal to publicly present any evidence he has to validate and substantiate these absurd and offensive claims, or make a public apology and denounce these claims. It is highly likely Mr Bhogal may face legal challenge about his TV interview in which he claims and calls for Government actions on a falsely alleged rise in Sikh radicalisation and extremism and disgraceful links to Pakistan Intelligence Agencies.
All this propaganda is a 30yr old tactic employed by Indian Authorities in the 80’s & 90’s to defame the honest name and reputation of religious Sikh community in India and in the diaspora. Its being used again in an attempt to discredit the active and legitimate protests against PM Modi’s UK visit.
The 30yr rule and release of UK government archived documents now prove that the UK government were complicit in mistreating & discriminating Sikhs at the request of the Indian PM in the 80’s and beyond. We hope that the current UK Government are not so naive and see through this fabrication of lies and fiction and defend the legal rights and protect the respect for Human Rights we have in this country. Instead push back to the Indian Authorities to clean up their own act in this regard.
