On Sikh Conservatives

Its not a question of if Sikhs are going to be political in this nation, that is inevitable, in that being duty bound to be involved with and serve the community, there are going to be some that will see fit to lead it. and they will and they have. Those that do however should not make common cause with conservatives. In doing so he must give up either being a Sikh or give up being conservative, that simply cannot co-exist without a person choosing one or the other. For it does not make sense to sit on the floor among as equals in langar on Sunday, yet sow further division among those same people the other 6 days of the week by cutting public services. Nor can he claim pride in the openness of his golden temple while working to close his nation to those in need of refuge from terror and strife. Nor can he claim to follow great man of past who opposed religious tyranny, yet seek to impose his own views on society, only replacing another’s religious philosophy for his own. Such people will claim their faith and heritage to gain votes, yet such people cannot be trusted for running with so they are either betraying one philosophy or the other.
