Ed Miliband discusses the work of City Sikhs

City Sikhs Network present book on Golden Temple to Ed Miliband

The City Sikhs Network (CSN) was privileged to meet the leader of the Labour Party, Ed Miliband. Members of the CSN Executive Board presented Ed Miliband with a copy of “The Golden Temple of Amritsar: Reflections of the Past (1808 – 1959)”, and we were accompanied by Parmjit Singh, one of the authors of the book and Harbakhsh Grewal of Kashi House.

Our discussions included the future projects and initiatives of CSN and of Kashi House, improving political engagement within the British Sikh community, and the hopes and aspirations of young Sikh professionals.

CSN is a non-politically aligned organisation, we have good working relationships with politicians of all political backgrounds, and we welcome opportunities to discuss our work with all political parties.

Jasvir Singh, a Director of CSN, said “One of our aims is to encourage greater political engagement and involvement from the British Sikh community, especially from our younger generations, and we are very glad to know that senior politicians such as Ed Miliband support our work.”

Author, historian and founding director of Kashi House, Parmjit Singh, said: “Kashi House is delighted to have been able to inform Mr Miliband about our work and the inspiration behind it – the Sikhs’ incredibly rich cultural and spiritual legacy. We’re aiming to bring about a renaissance in the Sikh cultural landscape by helping to establish a Sikh creative-media industry. We were delighted to have had the opportunity to share our vision with the Leader of the Opposition.”
