Sikhs pushing back against Akal Security obfuscation concerning government contracts, detention and deportation:

The involvement of Sikhs orgs in state oppression deeply concerns us. North American Sikh orgs need to publicly condemn the CEO of Akal Security as well as exert community pressure on 3HO to be accountable and break contra-Sikhi state contracts. @sikh_coalition @JakaraMovement twitter.com/deep_hundal/st…

This blasé response doesn’t address the concerns. “Immigration enforcement” and Sikhi are not compatible. Just like Panthic leadership it seems the 3HO/Sikh Dharama/Khalsa Council leadership is tight & interconnected, however there is no accountability, only strategic distance. pic.twitter.com/rCK6ptGdzp

Oversimplifying and generalizations in a tweet isn't going to solve anything or give you a better understanding or dialog. Akal Security was founded on Sikh values & the martial tradition of Sikhs. It has been a place for Sikhs to get jobs when they couldn't because of turbans.

“Akal Security was founded on Sikh values & the martial tradition of Sikhs. It has been a place for Sikhs to get jobs when they couldn't because of turbans.” Doesn’t get more oversimplified and generic than that. Understanding/dialogue isn’t the issue, government contacts are.

How is supporting an oppressive government agency aligned with Sikh values and martial tradition? How many Panjabi, Sikhs do you employ that would have otherwise faced barriers for employment?

How many non-white Sikhs work for Akal security? Why haven't you answered any of these questions yet? Or, are you just proving your white privilege? You're responsible for the violent separation of young children. Pathetic.
