Press Release

The British Sikh Association, in conjunction with the World Sikh University and Khalsa College London, celebrated the birth of Guru Nanak Devji with a glittering show at the Crown Banqueting Hall, South Ruislip on Sunday 2nd December 2012. The Guest of Honour was Mr Sukhdev S. Sidhu, Minister Co-ordination at the High Commission of India, London and the Chief Guest was Mr Paul Uppal MP, Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton South West.

Dr. Rami Ranger MBE, Chairman of the British Sikh Association, welcomed the guests and said we are privileged to be Sikhs. We owe a debt of gratitude to our Gurus for paying supreme sacrifices in order to liberate us and whose thinking and ideology was ahead of its time. Their teachings are to make mankind progress through peaceful coexistence. He also paid tribute to Dr. Sukhbir S. Kapoor OBE, Vice Chancellor of the World Sikh University and Principal of the Khalsa College London, for showing great vision when 27 years ago he set up the Khalsa College London to promote Indian Culture in Britain. He told the audience that it was worth remembering that 27 years ago we were a struggling community and for someone to show his commitment and passion for our culture was very remarkable.

Dr. Sukhbir S. Kapoor OBE, Vice Chancellor of the World Sikh University and Principal of the Khalsa College London, spoke about the achievements of the University and College from its humble beginnings to now a proper campus with over 450 students. The institute is now recognised by government bodies and is helping to shape a better future for many students including those from India. Students were then given their degrees and prizes for achievements.

The Guest of Honour, Mr Sukhdev S. Sidhu, Minister Co-ordination at the High Commission of India, London, praised the efforts of the University & College for promoting Indian values. He said he was very happy to see progress of the Indian diaspora in every field and in particular education. He further stressed the need to remain connected with our roots in India to benefit from the Indian values.

The Chief Guest, Mr Paul Uppal MP, Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton South West, said that Indian values must be preserved and promoted as they are the benchmark of our success. He said that he was proud to be a British Indian and encouraged students to become publically and politically spirited in the UK. He would like to see more British Indians in Parliament to strengthen democracy.

Finally guests were treated to Indian folk dances from Punjab, Gujarat & Nepal and refreshments were served.
