A young Singh in the UK has been in the spotlight the last few days after his appearance on a dating television show called “Take Me Out.” I just heard about it a show on BBC Radio 1 hosted by Nihal, which you can listen to in its entirety here.
Nihal speaks with Param, the dating show contestant, and takes comments from listeners, who discuss Param’s appearance on the show and more generally whether turban-wearing Sikh men are discriminated against when it comes to dating and marriage.
A group called the Youth Muslims Organisation has been seen stirring trouble and gangs have been spotted roaming the streets chanting Osama bin Laden's name since September 11.
They said these groups had particularly strong bases in Birmingham and Wolverhampton.
India has raised these concerns with Britain, Canada, Germany and Belgium and has worked closely with their intelligence agencies to protect senior Indian politicians, officials and military figures during visits to London.
"We have been receiving reports of BKI activity for three months and have been in touch with our Western counterparts.
It is possible the attack on General Brar was sponsored by radicals based across the English channels," the Hindustan Times quoted an Indian intelligence official saying.
As you’ll see in the clip below, as soon as Param comes out, 20 of the 30 women turn their lights off, indicating no interest in him.
