12th Sept : The Battle of Saragarhi 21 Sikhs v's 10,000 tribesmen!
New documentary on tonight KTV sky channel 858 at 9.30 pm.

In terms of the ratio on the odds faced, only a few battles come close to those faced by 21 Sikh soldiers of the 36th Sikhs in Saragarhi, North Western Frontier Province (NWFP) in present day Pakistan.
On September 12, 1897 these 21 Sikh soldiers were up against approximately 10,000 - 14,000 Afridi and Orakzai tribes of the Pashtun. The staggering ratio of 1:500 stacked against the Sikhs is both unmatched and unprecedented, ensuring their "last stand" will never be forgotten in history.

“It is no exaggeration to record that the armies which possess the valiant Sikhs cannot face defeat in war” - Queen Victoria, British Parliament 1897

Do you mean the Canadian Sikh politician, who had a mental woman screaming at him about Sharia law? He didn't say to her that he wasn't a muslim, he just said they all loved her. She was a bit stumped by that.

One of the things I like about Sikhs is they seem to have this wonderful cultured distance to religion when it comes to politics.

There was this recent thing on FB where a Sikh public speaker calmly offered love to an EDL heckler. No doubt everyone saw it. Admirable distance and culture.

Eddie, I'm not talking about comparing crazy actions, but the completely mad mindset that most extremists have.

Eddie, in fairness plenty of that sort of stuff happened during the Sri Lankan civil war between Hindus and Buddhists.

However if you're on about over here you're spot on.

How many hindus have flown airplanes into buildings, driven cars and lorries into crowds, blown themselves up at a pop concert, been filmed slowly hacking off the heads of innocent people, thrown gay people off buildings etc etc

In fairness there were quite a few high profile acts of violence by Tamil gangs a few years ago but that's not really comparable.
