Members of the Sikh community are in fury over a BBC Radio 4 programme which linked Sikhs with Al Qaeda.

The BBC Radio 4 programme 'File on 4' claimed that Sikh Gurdwara's in Britain are sending money to India to fund the activities of Sikh militants who are pushing for a Sikh homeland called Khalistan.

Many Sikhs feel that the programme lacked "balance" and according to bhangra artists Tigerstyle, it "attempted to sensationalise local gurdwara politics".
