Coronavirus testing is a complete shambles.
Tan Dhesi MP for Slough pointed out to the Secretary of State for Health Matt Hancock MP that instead of being able to use the local Slough site, because of Government incompetence, people face driving hundreds of miles or catching a ferry to the Isle of Wight!
This debacle is dangerous, risks us losing more lives and the Govt must deliver their promised “world-beating” system. ... See MoreSee Less

Honoring Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal Nearly One Year After His Death, #Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher’s Bill to Rename Houston Post Office in His Memory Passes House of Representatives
(Washington, DC) – Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher’s (TX-07) bipartisan legislation to honor Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy #Sandeep Singh #Dhaliwal, H.R. 5317, the Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal Post Office Act, has unanimously passed the House of Representatives.
H.R. 5317 provides that the post office located at 315 Addicks Howell Road will be named the “Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal Post Office.” The bill was co-sponsored by the entire Texas delegation.
“Deputy Dhaliwal represented the very best of our community: he worked for equality, connection, and community through his life of service to others,” said Congresswoman Fletcher. “The Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal Post Office will serve as a permanent reminder of his service, his sacrifice, and his example for us all. I am grateful that my legislation to honor his memory has passed the House of Representatives today and is one step closer to being signed into law.”
“I am very grateful to Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher and her commitment to honoring my husband’s memory. He loved being a part of and serving his community. Naming a post office after him will honor his work and dedication, and I am happy that this bill has passed the House today,” said Harwinder Kaur Dhaliwal, Deputy Dhaliwal’s wife.
“My son was beloved by all in his community, and performed his job and participated in seva (selfless service) with respect, dignity, and care. He lived as a symbol of the strength that comes from diversity and unity, and this building will serve as another permanent reminder of how much he meant to our family and the people of Houston. We are so thankful for this effort to honor his legacy and his commitment to our city,” said Pyara Singh Dhaliwal, Deputy Dhaliwal’s father.
“The recognition of Deputy Dhaliwal’s legacy by naming a federal building in his honor is a historic and deeply meaningful acknowledgement for the Dhaliwal family and Sikh community,” said Sim J. Singh, Sikh Coalition Senior Manager of Policy and Advocacy. “We are grateful to work alongside Texas lawmakers in this year-long effort, and trust that this recognition will further help Americans appreciate that diversity and inclusion remain our nation's greatest strength.”
“I am grateful to Congresswoman Fletcher for her work on behalf of this effort,” said Harris County Commissioner R. Jack Cagle. “It is remarkably appropriate that the post office being renamed for Deputy Dhaliwal is in the very district he patrolled and protected. This renaming not only honors Deputy Dhaliwal and his family, but also honors the citizens who use it because it bears the name of such a fine public servant.”
“I am proud of Rep. Fletcher to promptly work to honor Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal so that his contributions to Harris County will never be in question. Soon, when this post office is officially renamed in his honor, generations upon generations will see it and know how special of a human being he was as well as the positive impact had on all that he met. Sandeep was no ordinary law enforcement officer, and I thank Representative Fletcher for her leadership in ensuring the Dhaliwal name and the distinction of being the first Sikh to serve in the uniform of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office will live on in perpetuity,” said Commissioner Adrian Garcia.
“Deputy Dhaliwal established deep, meaningful connections with the community he bravely served,” said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. “On behalf of the men and women who proudly served at his side, I want to thank Congresswoman Fletcher for working to honor Deputy Dhaliwal by putting his name on a building that is so integral in strengthening connections in our society.”
In 2015, Lt. Dhaliwal became the first Sikh American in Texas to receive a policy accommodation to serve while wearing his articles of faith, including his turban and beard. He was the first Sikh police officer to serve in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and was a role model and a trailblazer for Sikh Americans and religious minorities that sought to serve in law enforcement.
On September 27, 2019, Deputy Dhaliwal was killed in the line of duty. In October of 2019, Congresswoman Fletcher led the entire Houston delegation in introducing H. Res. 616, a resolution to honor the life and mourn the loss of Deputy Dhaliwal and spoke on the House floor. ... See MoreSee Less

This picture is from September 1973 in London, England. Two Sikh motorcyclists were stopped by a police officer because they were not wearing helmets.
On February 7, 1973, a bill was introduced in England requiring motorcyclists to wear a helmet, effective June 1. Later, due to the struggle waged by Sikh organizations, in 1976, Sikh motorcyclists were exempted from wearing helmets.
ਇਹ ਤਸਵੀਰ ਸਤੰਬਰ 1973 ਦੀ ਤੇ ਇੰਗਲੈਂਡ ਦੇ ਸ਼ਹਿਰ ਲੰਡਨ ਦੀ ਹੈ, ਇੱਕ ਪੁਲਿਸ ਅਧਿਕਾਰੀ ਵੱਲੋਂ ਦੋ ਸਿੱਖ ਮੋਟਰਸਾਈਕਲ ਸਵਾਰਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਇਸ ਲਈ ਰੋਕਿਆ ਗਿਆ ਸੀ ਕਿਉਂਕਿ ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਹੈਲਮਟ ਨਹੀਂ ਪਾਇਆ ਹੋਇਆ ਸੀ।
ਇਸੇ ਸਾਲ 7 ਫਰਵਰੀ, 1973 ਵਾਲੇ ਦਿਨ ਇੰਗਲੈਂਡ ਵਿੱਚ ਮੋਟਰਸਾਈਕਲ ਸਵਾਰਾਂ ਲਈ ਹੈਲਮਟ ਪਾਉਣਾ ਲਾਜ਼ਮੀ ਕਰਾਰ ਦੇਣ ਵਾਲਾ ਬਿਲ ਲਿਆਂਦਾ ਗਿਆ ਸੀ ਜੋਂ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਜੂਨ ਤੋਂ ਲਾਗੂ ਹੋਇਆ ਸੀ। ਸਿੱਖ ਜਥੇਬੰਦੀਆਂ ਵੱਲੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਵਿੱਚ ਕੀਤੀ ਜਦੋਜਹਿਦ ਕਾਰਨ 1976 ਵਿੱਚ ਸਿੱਖ ਮੋਟਰਸਾਈਕਲ ਸਵਾਰਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਹੈਲਮੇਟ ਪਾਉਣ ਤੋਂ ਛੋਟ ਵੀ ਮਿਲ ਗਈ ਸੀ।

#Amrit #Singh becomes #first-ever #turban_wearing #Sikh to be sworn in as deputy constable in Harris County in the #US state of #Texas.
Amrit Singh is an Indian-American law enforcement officer and has scripted history as he becomes the first Sikh Deputy Constable formalizing a new policy that allows women and men in uniform to wear articles of faith. Now constables across the county will be able to wear articles of faith including turbans on-duty. Growing up I always wanted to be a deputy,” said Amrit Singh at the ceremony. He said at the age of 20, he attended police academy and then sought out a place to work that would be inclusive of his religious beliefs and customs. Singh also said,” I didn’t want to give up my religion to serve. The constable’s office opened their doors to me, where I didn’t have to sacrifice any part of me.” Singh will now go on to months of field training, after which he will be assigned to patrol within Precinct One.
In 2015, Harris County made national headlines after sheriff’s #Deputy #Sandeep #Dhaliwal fought for and won the rights to wear his turban and beard on duty. He was shot and killed during a traffic stop last year. “Legacy of Dhaliwal is not far removed, it clearly recognized and acknowledge his service and this is a gift that continues to give in his recognition and legacy,” said Bobby Singh, a Sikh community leader.

Today is the anniversary of the Battle of #Saragarhi.
It was fought on 12 #september 1897 between the British Indian Empire and the Afghan tribesmen. It occurred in the North-West Frontier Province (now Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan). #sikh soldiers fought on behalf of the British Indian Army against Pashtun Orakzai tribesmen.
The British Indian contingent comprised 21 Sikh soldiers of the 36th Sikhs. They were stationed at an army post and were attacked by 10000 to 12,000 Afghans. The Sikhs, led by Havildar Ishar Singh, chose to fight to the death, in what is considered by some military historians as one of history's greatest last stands.
The 4th battalion of the Sikh Regiment of the Indian Army commemorates the battle every year on 12 September, as Saragarhi Day.The British Army for the last 7 years has been marking Saragarhi Day too.

Leicester's Diwali celebrations - believed to be among the biggest outside of #India - have been cancelled due to #coronavirus restrictions.
Thousands of people usually gather to watch traditional dance and music events in the city throughout #October.
However, while the lights along the #Golden #Mile will still be switched on, #Leicester City Council said large gatherings have to be prevented.
#Christmas events are also cancelled but decorations will still go up.
The city council said its team would start putting up the #Diwali lights as normal, but they will be switched on using a timer.
The authority's director of tourism, Mike Dalzell, said they were still looking at ideas for alternative ways for people to mark the festive occasions.
"It's obviously hugely disappointing that these popular events won't be taking place this year," he said.
"But with so much uncertainty around the coronavirus situation, the most important thing is that we keep people safe."
The Diwali lights switch-on has attracted up to 40,000 people in previous years.
Spectators have said the celebrations make them feel "proud" to be from the city, which they call "little India".
Details of alternative plans for #Diwali and Christmas will be released in the coming weeks, the council said. ... See MoreSee Less
