10th Guru`s armour to be sold
Ji`s armour to be auctioned? NEVER
SIGN THE PETITION HERE:
SEND A MESSAGE TO SOTHEBY`S TELLING THEM THEY CAN`T SELL IT AND IF THEY DO WE WILL PROTEST OUTSIDE WITH A BLOCKADE-
We are uncertain of how they got hold of it; the story isn`t big in the news yet, but will be soon IF WE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
has got hold of Guru Gobind Singh Ji`s armour, a chest plate with Sanscript scripture carved in gold onto it, and they want to sell it.
Their argument is it may just be a replica and not the original. It does not matter, the point is it is part of Sikh heritage, it is not for sale, this is seriously a disgrace!
If they do insist on trying to auction it 100% we are going there to protest, and to take it BACK!
The item isn`t to be sold to someone, it belongs to Sikhs!
It should be integrated into our history; somewhere where where all can see and appreciate it, it belongs to our people!
This is not random pro-Sikh the usual "too good too hard" nonsense and we aren`t trying to stir up controversy or just have a riot for a laugh, we seriously can`t let them do this.
1) THERE ARE NO BIGGER EXPERTS ON EARTH THEN SOTHEBY`S
TO KNOW IF THE ARMOUR IS GENUINE OR FAKE - BUT NOT
EVEN THEY CAN PROVE IT 100%
2) SOTHEBY`S ARE CALLING IT "THE MOST IMPORTANT SALE
OF ITS KIND EVER" - DOES THAT NOT TELL YOU ENOUGH
ABOUT WHAT THE ARMOUR MEANS AND IF IT IS FAKE?
3) IF SOMEONE SAYS WE HAVE 5MILLION+ TO SPEND AT THE
AUCTION I WILL SHUT UP ABOUT A PROTEST ETC
4) WE DO NOT KNOW IF THE OWNER HAS LEGAL CLAIM TO THE
ARMOUR! - WE WANT THEM TO PROVE THIS BEFORE
5) TO EVERYONE SAYING HOW CAN WE STOP THEM AUCTIONING
IT - THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD INTERVENE FIRST BUT IF THEY
DO NOT DO YOU THINK 1000 OF US OUTSIDE SOTHEBY`S WILL
NOT STOP THEM SELLING IT? OF COURSE IT WILL!
