Do you accept unsolicited articles or press releases?
Do you have a slant or bias?
Yes and No.
We strive to remain fair and balanced in all respects, keeping in mind that we are a Sikh publication and will keep in line with Panthik norms and Sikh history as well as tend to err on the side of the Sikh story, especially in cases of racism, genocide and political issues—except in cases where the Sikh side may be entirely wrong.
Why do you say Appointed Jathedar of Akal Takht Sahib?
Sikh24 uses the term appointed Jathedar in order to remind readers that the current Jathedar of Akal Takht Sahib is not selected by Sarbat Khalsa, a democratic caucus assembled for such a purpose as our Gurus invisioned, but rather is chosen and replaced at will by politicians in the SGPC and Punjab Government.
The Jathedar is appointed due to political winds and what is convenient for those in office at the time. This is not to say that Sikh24 does not endorse or support Akal Takht Sahib or advocate disrespect of the current Jathedar, it is a reminder to be weary and continue the struggle to reinstate Sarbat Khalsa.
Why do you put quotes around “Singh” or remove the name from certain individuals?
Sikh24 strives to remain unbiased and fair, but still recognize and respect Sikh principles. In some cases—especially Genocide and mass murderers—our editors don’t feel it is appropriate to apply the holy Sikh names of Singh or Kaur to these individuals who have acted in a wholly un-Sikh like fashion.
Examples of this would be KP Gill or CM Beant “Singh”, each accused of the mass murder of thousands of innocent Sikhs.
