    I can understand people getting pissed but that is a bit of an extreme reaction. Even if the sun is making most of it up

    If true, the reaction was OTT but what would you expect after naming it the "Sikh cultural centre"?

    Touched a nerve ?

    Go home pal.

    I'm sure there's a tasty poo smelling slum in Mumbai with your name on it.

    He told you to shut up because whenever people read your comment, they realise you are an idiot. It was for your own good.

    I feel like I'm not getting the full story here. Sikhs, especially those in the West, are not known for their violence or threatening behaviour (unlike another certain group). In fact Sikhs tend to be very well-to do, educated, culturally assimilated types - I see many more soft-spoken Sikh lawyers, investment bankers or local-Dr-Singh-GP-types, than ranting and raving lunatics. Go figure.

    That story has very little facts. Unsuprisingly.

    It's unusual to see this amongst the Sikh community, they're usually one of the best integrated and most liberal of the recent immigration groups to the UK.

    Wow, you can read. Nice to know Labour's education system worked out well for you.

    I'm half Arab, half British. I'm Muslim. English mum, Egyptian dad. I call myself British.

    Although nobody's truly English, are they? The language is a mix of German, French and Latin, et al. 'English' people are descendents from Germans, the French, the Russians, Jews etc.

    Go look up your family tree.
    Not really. The Roman influence in the UK was rather small and the Germans didn't exist when the Anglo-Saxons came over to England and half of those lived in what is now Denmark instead of Germany. It would be more correct to say that the English are a Germanic people but most of those invasions were centuries and centuries ago now.

    From seeing this article it is apparent that even more people need to get a smack round the head by Richard Dawkins.

    No-one is truly anything, unless England is the only place in the world that anyone has ever moved to. It does annoy me when England is constantly singled out, as if every other country is racially pure.

    You come to that conclusion, even though the source is The Sun?

    We don't know where it was judging by that article. That's besides the point. Those "rioters" were angry due to the fact that, meat/alcohol was associated to a building named after their religion.

    According to a commenter "...but regarding the cultural center it is owned by the sikh gurdwara and therefore no alcohol or meat is allowed on the premises hence the furious reaction from the congregation,,Thanks"

    Stop disputing things in newspapers you don't like simply because it doesn't fit in with your lovey dovey view of a religion/culture.

    Don't call it a Sikh community centre when is goes against Sikhism; how would other people like it if someone made money from their name when it goes against their principles?
