Sikh parade (Nagar Kirtan) LA is organized by very questionable people!
Dear Editorial team,
San Bernardino Sun media
This is in reference to your coverage of the annual Sikh parade in LA California. While from a wider Sikh perspective, its commonplace to see these events covered by the media, however the managements of this Sikh parade have an undeniable and conspicuous family connection with the Air India “Terrorists” and hence their one-sided media coverage needs to be debatable. One of the two main event planners are Gurdip Singh Malik who happens to be the elder brother of Ripudaman Singh Malik, who was in jail for 4 years for his alleged involvement in a crime just second in severity to 9-11.
Even if he has been absolved in the case, the justice to the families of 331 innocents still remains jeopardized. When people who are immediate relatives of those involved in the judicial process around this epic case of terrorism are given big coverage and no mention is provided of who they really are or connected with, it becomes highly hurting and debatable how these people are able to get such high and favourable coverage in the media!
Here’s my social media post which I wrote and helps build my narrative stated above:
SIKH PARADES ORGANIZED BY IMMEDIATE FAMILY OF ALLEGED AIR INDIA TERRORISTS ARE PATRONIZED BY INDIAN TV CHANNELS, INDIAN MEDIA AND INDIAN POLITICIANS
It’s a BIG SHAME and a CRUEL JOKE that INDIA accepts and patronizes the Sikh parades organized by immediate family of Air India alleged Terrorist Ripudaman Malik, the highly influential man with links with Indian government!
This particular Sikh parade is organized every year by Gurdip Singh Malik the elder brother of Ripudaman Malik in LA, California, US.
Indian channels and Indian politicians attend or cover the news of this Sikh parade with great enthusiasm and zeal.
It’s a CRUEL IRONY that on one hand India claims to want justice for 331 innocent lives and on the other hand promotes the Sikh parade organized by the immediate family of the alleged terrorist!!
WHAT A BIG HYPOCRISY AND A CRUEL JOKE ON HUMANITY!
It’s very sad to see the slumber and ignorance of the Sikh community as well to accept these Sikh parades spearheaded by Air India Terrorist family.
A BIG SHAME. MY HEAD BOWS IN SHAME TO SEE THIS.
We request you to add mentions to the above fact when covering this event in LA. In the absence of this reference, it amounts to an error of omission in the journalistic sense, given that the Air India bombing is a huge case of aviation terrorism. Other details of the Sikh parade would then be considered justifiable and in place.
