A Sikh perspective for Brexit: Manvir Singh Khalsa

European Sikhs face an increasing trend of intolerance of religion in mainland Europe, from education to work. In public life, resistance to being seen differently is growing. Countries such as France do not allow photos that prove who has worn Dastaar. In addition, children were instructed to remove Dastaar if they wanted to continue studying at school.

Sikhs' legal experts took this case to the United Nations. Despite the UN's French directive on the right for Sikhs to wear Dastaar, the French government ignored this ruling.

The European Parliament, the European politicians as configured. Britain was part of the European Parliament but does not constitute a majority. Most of the European mainland countries Punjabi or Sikh and historic relationship is almost no Sikh vote is not required (the Sikhs and all the European countries in the minority and in many regions not get to vote because there is no citizenship).

With this in mind, a public life that appears in religion for the increasing trend in the European politicians Sikh interests of advocates hope to little or not at all. The United Kingdom European Union remained in the British Sikh people in this country got freedom intolerance for European politicians threat of risk would have been. For Europe and radical Islam's threat to the Sikh and law-abiding Muslims in a negative impact.

Secession from the European Union will make the voice of British Sikhism stronger, and Britain's favor for Sikhism and religion as a whole will increase, or at least be protected, without European constraints.

The British public is a considerable number of politicians and the integrity of the political system has lost faith in you. People began to question the validity and veracity of political claims on both sides of political claims.


With complaints about politicians involved in expense scandals, growing fears of government cuts to essential services, and a desire to make society better than it is now, many voted for Brexit. However, the reality of the situation is time to plate!

Gurbani teaches us to prepare for the future and be raw.“ ... ਦੇ ਲੰਮੀ ਨਦਰਿ ਨਿਹਾਲੀਐ ॥” (“... look forward to the future with foresight.”). According to Gurbani, primacy comes from the connection between spirituality and divinity. Gurbani " ਸੋ ਪੜਿਆ ਸੋ ਪੰਡਿਤੁ ਬੀਨਾ ਜਿਨੑੀ ਕਮਾਣਾ ਨਾਉ ॥ “("only they are learned, wise, scholar, and accumulate spiritual wealth by connecting with God.”).

Based on the spirituality set in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, there is no greater preparation for the future than maintaining readiness for the unknown by letting the virtue and glory of Guru shine through our thoughts and actions.

According to Manvir Singh Khalsa, The path for European Sikhs is to instill the values and thinking of Gurmat into their children and focus on their children's education. In other European countries and spiritually strong and educated young Gur Sikh lawyers, doctors, writers, journalists when they are a wider society and each government has its own story, you will be able to express it.

Building connections with the community and host community politicians create stronger bonds. Regularly invite politicians, teachers, and police to the Gurdwara, explain Sikhi, share Langar with them, have friendly conversations, build bridges with decision-makers, and they will have respect with Sikhs in mind.

Hopefully, talented young gurushiks from European countries can reach influential positions to influence legislators to protect the rights of Sikhs, as pioneering Sikhs in Britain did. There are already young gurus Sikhs who have made positive contributions to Sikhs active in Europe and living in their country.

The early pioneers for the rights of Sikhs faced many difficulties and had to participate in peaceful demonstrations to obtain the right to wear Dastaar on buses or not to wear helmets. Sikhs initially jumped into politics as local MPs, and eventually, we had Sikhs proudly wearing Dastaar in Parliament.

Manvir Singh Leamington said that in Europe Sikhi is strong and devoted to Gurban, Simran Gursikhs if you have, their presence and atmosphere that they say that people will have a positive effect. It is time for European Sikhs to move out of their communities and join the wider community.

Similarly, Sikhs in the UK can continue to help European Sikhs by maintaining relations with embassies in other European countries and can continue to provide support to European communities struggling with problems.

Racial discrimination in the fight against the British Sikh history, equal opportunity, and faith of the religion clauses protect through our European brothers and sisters all for a more fair and respectful to build a community to help rich experience and professional knowledge to share.
