Thumbs down Violent clash at Queens, NY Sikh temple

Violent clash at Queens Sikh temple

A holy war erupted yesterday at a Sikh temple in Queens -- where worshippers wielding swords and cricket bats interrupted a prayer session to attack their rivals in a vicious power struggle, police and witnesses said.

Rival factions at the Baba Makhan Shah Lobana Sikh Center in South Richmond Hill have been bickering for months over control, authorities and members said.

The dispute reached a bloody climax yesterday when the infighting turned violent, accompanied by screams, taunts and death threats.

The alleged attackers -- armed with at least one sword about 40 inches long, and another sword, according to a witness -- were part of the old guard that had been recently voted out of power but refused to accept the decision, even going to court to challenge the election.

"We just went to pray," said M.K. Singh, who received stitches and staples to close a head wound. "We walked inside, and they started attacking.

"They cut me. They tried to cut my arm off, but the sword got caught on [something]. I'm very lucky."

New temple President Gurmej Singh said he and his supporters had come to pray despite knowing there could be trouble.

Police had been deployed outside the two-story center in case anything happened, but the violence broke out inside.

The attackers brought the long sword and at least one other blade, as well as a hammer, mallet and cricket bats to the temple at 101st Avenue and 114th Street at around 11 a.m., witnesses and police said.

Three people were reported injured, including a cop who tried to intervene, police said.

A witness said at least seven others were hurt as victims fought back. None suffered life-threatening injuries.

Seven people were arrested, including Harinder Singh, 47, who was charged with assault after allegedly punching a man in the eye. Others were charged with unlawful assembly, resisting arrest, rioting, and disrupting a religious service.

At the 102nd Precinct, where the suspects were processed, cops struggled to keep the two sides apart.

"Something is behind this," said Gurmej Singh, who accused the old regime of financial mismanagement. "It's money."

He said the perpetrators vowed to attack again next week. Additional reporting

Re: Violent clash at Queens, NY Sikh temple

Originally, there used to be one major gurudwara in New York. Over time, it's management came into the control of the Jatt caste who did not let any other castes into the management.

For some reason, there are a significant number of sikhs from the Labana caste and they created their own gurudwara called Makan Shah Labana caste. The management is only for members of the Labana caste.

Then in the 1980's, there was a huge migration of punjabi's of the Chamar caste and they created their own Ravidassia gurudwara in New York. The management is only for members of the Chamar caste.

All 3 groups created their own gurudwara for the control of the donation. A significant percentage of the donations go into the personal bank accounts of the management.

Now, this fight is between is in the Labana gurudwara between the corrupt old management and the more honest members who are from many castes (but still majority labana).

thats the use of the turban on the head... even if the sword is coming sharply towards hand they can take the attack on the turban. some will go even for the attacks on legs...

Re: Violent clash at Queens, NY Sikh temple

okay Labanas have fought between themselves, i thought they were from my caste Jatt, Jatt are most arrogant and highly castist and never allow any other if they get into control of any management

arbaaz bhai, this fight is equivalent to fight between muslim castes like chudhuries, sheikhs or saiyyads.
if there is fight between akalis and nirankaris then that is equal between barelvis and deobandis

shia and sunni type group will emerge when population will reach at least 10 crores abhi time baki hai
