Already, the implications of the forthcoming changes to the BNP constitution are generating headlines which could adumbrate a change in direction for the mainstream media’s reporting of the party. What, after all, will it do with the “racist” smear tag when people such as Rajinder Singh, who are sympathetic to the BNP’s platform, join and become fully paid-up members?
Mr Singh, a retired schoolteacher who is also a Sikh, is widely touted to become the first ethnic minority member of the BNP. He has been a supporter of the party for the past decade, and makes it clear that he is a strong advocate of the party’s anti-Islamisation stance, for he himself suffered familial tragedy with the death of his father (killed by Muslims) during the partition of India in 1947.
I very much welcome Mr Singh’s impending membership, and hope that other Sikhs sympathetic to the BNP’s central platform will lend the party their support and hopefully become members. In my opinion, the BNP would be wise to offer Rajinder Singh the opportunity of standing as their parliamentary candidate in Southall at the forthcoming General Election if he should be interested in the proposal. Admittedly, at the age of 78 he might understandably not wish to immerse himself in full-time political campaigning, but I do think that his candidature should be given full consideration. In the video below, Rajinder speaks for himself:
