    The world claims that india is the biggest democracy in the world, what a load of bull. Since Independence what has the indian government done for the Sikhs? the british have said that Sikhs made 0ver 70% of their army in the 40's while being only 2% of the potion of india. we were promised our homeland but 2/3's of Punjab given to stan, then after independence Kashmir himachal an harayana were taken out of Punjab by the indian government. When bhindrawalas body was shown to the media a journalist asked why is it covered in bruises? I thought he was shot dead? why was there a media blackout? during op bluestar? why havnt the people who murdered raped killed children women and men during the riots in 1984 been brought to justice ? over 30,000 Sikhs were murdered but not 1 person has been charged with a crime relating to the riots?!?!?!? eeven in Gujarat were modi was chief Sikhs have benn told to leave the lands given to farm on !!! there are Sikhs locked up without charge in india for over 30 years and the ones who have plead guilty have still received the maximum penalty. and those who have served their terms are still locked away wtf?!?!?! Sikhs are recognised all over the world as warriors of our time an past but india an hindhus simply fail to even acknowledge there sacrifice bravery an love, but the is only so much a singh/lion can take when backed into a corner eventually he will come out roaring and shredding everything in the way!!!!

            Indian media biased news... you are not even worthy of calling yourselves journalists. When you call yourself a journalist, you make certain promises to your audience. Journalists make these promises to protect the credibility of their work and earn the public's trust. Good journalism matters to each of us, to our society and to our planet. Just to remind you of a Reporter's Oath is to: Seek truth and the public good. Expose injustice. Report with fairness and accuracy. Defend the public's right to know. Respect human dignity. Discover and teach. Sadly, Indian media dances to the tunes of the government who oppress the minority potion, and results in unfactual, biased, government-controlled reporting. Shame on India media! We are demanding that illegally imprisoned citizens who have served their sentences be released. . You are a disgrace to the Oath of Journalism.
