Last quote by Kenan Malik

The decision to deny a Sikh couple the right to adopt a white child exposes the need for a new vision of who we are. Last week, Sandeep and Reena Mander were denied the chance to adopt a child. It was not because their local council, Windsor and Maidenhead, thought that they would not have provided a loving family home. Nor because there were no children to adopt. It is rather that the Manders are of Indian Sikh heritage – though both born in Britain – and the only children needing adoption were white. “They took the colour of our skin as the overriding reason not to progress with the application,” Mr Mander said.feedback
