- The govt reversed the ban in 2007. So why is the Sikh Coalitions headline misleading to suggest 2 years later that its headline news…
- The award settlements were dated 2008 and June 2009. Isn’t the information on the award settlement the correct news in June 2009 or this month when the money was received ? Why did the Sikh Coalition hide this letter for so long ? If they didnt issue a Press Release in June 2009, at the least, the Sikh Coalition should be upright in giving a correct timeline and a report. The Sikh Coalition wants the public to think they had a new victory, this year, of overturning the ban, although this was in 2007. Why ?
- The governments 2007 decision also allows the wearing of the kirpan, but this is not mentioned in the first few paragraphs but is tucked deep in the press release. For what Khalsa Ji ?
The effort on this is commendable but why mislead the people, why not be upfront to the sangat?
Their Executive Director, Amar Deep Bhalla, should look into this and be forthright, honest, and not mislead the sangat.
