More Protests Against McLeodian “Sikh” Studies Chairs

Recently a so-called “Chair” who was once again working against the interest of Sikhs faced a protest.  This chair faced protests as it was holding a seminar and was going to disrespect the Sikh turban. This was at Loyola Marymount University.

Other universities like Rutgers University should also be made aware of the controversy of the Chairs.  Other professors like Gurinder Mann, Ami P. Shah are also controversial.

No Response by Rutgers University To Open Letter Re Funds From Gurinder Mann Abuser

There has been no response to this letter:

 & All Other Concerned Members
To accept funds from an newly formed organization that is headed by someone who is known to be a sexual abuser is very questionable.  It is easy to be manipulated or convinced by people the reason donations are made to a University.  In the past by many different universities, funds have been rejected for various reasons.  Please see the news of UC Irvine:
Questions are to be asked which many don’t know the answers to.  Why would a Professor move from Columbia University in NY, to UC Santa Barbara in California?  Why does a class take place at Rutgers University in 2012, but then starts again in 2017?  Who were the donors then? Who are the donors now? How can donors be properly vetted?
Please ask these questions and answer them to tax payers, citizens, students, alumni, etc.
With kind regards,

Controversial professor Gurinder Mann left university under cloud of sexual harassment

Sikh Studies professor left university under cloud of sexual harassment

Among the numerous confidential files released in late February and early March by the University of California to the Associated Press and other news organizations was the 2013 investigation of sexual misconduct allegations against Gurinder Mann, the Kundan Kaur Kapany Professor of Sikh Studies at UC Santa Barbara.

The university concluded that Mann created a hostile educational environment due to verbal and physical harassment of his female student at his home, and that he had behaved sexually inappropriately with many students for many years with some claiming assault.

Department faculty heads had known about these complaints and did nothing, witnesses said. His students said they were expected to be his chelas, or disciples, and Mann their guru. Mann told university investigators that he also had learned at the feet of his gurus and also sat with them on their beds.

Mann cannot be a Sikh because he followed cult leaders known in India as gurus, sants, babas or yogis.

Mann retired in 2015 and began his own Sikh studies program in New York

Shah a position in Sikh Studies at Rutgers.  How much was donated? What is this new GISS? Who are the “donors?” Should a University take funds in the name of a Sexual Abuser?
