Walsall Pleck Gurdwara - Abuse of Sangat Donations



Nanaksar Gurdwara, Wellington Street, Pleck, Walsall has become the stronghold of one individual, namely Mr Amrik Singh 'Malri' (real surname Rai, Malri is his village).  Mr Malri was the president of the committe when they purchased the pub on Wellington Street (in 2012) which is opposite the Gurdwara. The pub had earlier gone on sale & the committe had shown no interest in purchasing it. Then when it was purchased & came back on the market - the Gurdwara committee and trustees showed an ardent interest in purchasing it, arguing it could be brought by Muslims & made into a Mosque which would cause unrest for the visiting Sangat to the Gurdwara. Laxmi Jewellers had purchased the pub in September 2011 - see attached title deed for a sum of £190,000.

On the 12th April 2012 the trustees of the Gurdwara purchased the pub from Laxmi Jewellers at £350,000. In just 6 months the Jewellers had managed to make a profit on the pub from the Gurdwara of £160,000. The deeds clearly show this. Local Sangat know that the jewellers also made no structural or building improvements which would have caused a price increase - the UK was still under a recession & property prices in this area of Walsall are some of the lowest as it is an inner city area.

Misappropriation of charitable funds was committed by both the committee & the trustees of the Gurdwara (who are the legal owners of properties of the Gurdwara including the pub). At the time of the purchase Mr Amrik Singh Malri was the president of the committee whilst his eldest son Acting Sergeant Harvinder Singh Rai was a trustee. Bhajan Singh's daughter (another trustee) is married to Mr Amrik Singh Malri's youngest son.  Mrs Manjit Kaur Sarohi was the General Secretary of the committee her her husband & Pleck Ward Councillor for the Labour Party Mr Harbans Singh Sarohi was a trustee.

The trustees are educated & successful men - who would know about getting land registry details before purchase - but they sanctioned the purchase anyway. As for the committee they sanctioned the funding for the purchase of the pub. Since it's purchase the only thing the pub has been used for is renting it out to 'people' who cannot afford better accommodation. It has not been used for any Gurmat Parchar - the only benefit has been use of its car park. The pub was a failing pub which kept changing owners prior to the Gurdwara purchasing it.

Deeds below show proof.

wow what is happening to the singhs, who knows where the money went, are there any more issues you know of?

The 2 public serving men need to be investigated clearly with the line of work they are in this shows either serious inconpentace or foul play either way they cannot be trusted to be in such high profile public jobs shocking

Not surprised, punjabis don't stop at nothing, very selfish!

Withing 6 months they paid £160k extra, that is ridiculous. If that was there own personal money would they do the same when buying a house? Not a chance. Sounds to me like Mr Malri the crook has made himself a nice bit of money.

Have they been reported to the Charity Commission? Need investigating and criminal charges bought if financial irregularities exist!! Exposing these kind is the first step!

That's why you shouldn't give money. Who knows where it'll be used. Can't do harm with flowers, milk and fruit.

It's easy to comment from a distance or anonymously. Before anyone suggests it, I'm not related to anyone in the family but I was able to learn from the programmes and activities they organised for years, which brought a lot of youth into sikhi. They've done so much seva over the years, maybe before pointing the finger and making accusations someone should speak to those involved directly and get some answers firsthand.

These people are fucking dogs. First you use Sangats money on useless stuff. Then you let bamans dance in the Gurdwara Community Centre and stop all gurmat taking place. Stop keertan and paath classes. Install benches in Darbaar. Stop camps that have been taking place since 20 years. How can you stoop so low. Fucking Kanjars

The rumours are tha malri was accused infront of many elder Singhs at the local annual football tournament that he pocketed £80k from the purchase of the pub which he was unusually quite caught off guard embrassed and no response not a sign off a innocent man I'd say

They have a lot to account for and clear up if these are incorrect then publish your proof to the sangat keeping quite sweeping under the carpet clearly shows they have something to hide

Is it also true Mr malri and Mrs Manjit had the same builders constructing the gurdwara building works carry out major house improvements at there houses at the same time as the building contract given to these builders was tens of thousands pounds more than other builders they was insistant to have only these builders when others were much cheaper? Would you pay more if this was your own money something does not make sense? Did the gurdwara subside the building works carried out at there own homes with the over priced contract given to these builders?

Anonymous said...

This is Shameful. Spending the sangats money in such a careless way is horrifying. I will not be donating money to these Crooks again. Truth comes out eventually. These people are Corrupt and they lie to the Sangat thinking we're stupid, the Gurdwara's been on the decline over the years anyways due to the lack of competency running the place. Open your eyes people!

Anonymous said...

Kiran please can you clarify which programmes did they organise? The Gurdwara was merely the venue for parchar & youth activities, these 3 individuals were never part of organising these things

Shame the gurdwara is ran by Cowboys

Before accusing any body find the facts first. This pub was used many times to keep gundas from other towns to take over the Gurdwara from gursikhs by force by the writers of this blog the sikh federation. They collect millions and fiddled guru ki golak for the last 30 years.

Atom Singh for pardaan. Malri is phukhin bitch

Who had the control of the Gurdwara for the last 30 years. It is sikh federation. Ask them where they spent all the money and why it has been on decline they will give you a better answer.

These pricks havent organised any programmes. Its always been the federation and sikh youth group walsall. On what base have they stopped all activities. And why are people dancing in the comm centre. Has mr marli got an asnwer

Congratulations for your nice language . That is what you learnt from these camps.who will like to send their kids to these camps where the organisers use the language like your's. Thanks to the committee that they realised after so many years what is going on in these camps. Lot of filth going on in these camps between boys and girls who are staying overnight.

Anonymous said...

My question to these bevkoof Sikhs is that how these four people can get away with it. First of all committee must had more than 20 members and they must have approved the purchase of the pub. Secondly those trustees are not only trustees Sukhwinder Padda 's cousins Santokh Khera is a senior trustee and a successful businessman. Why you lot had not raised finger at him. Joga singh's son in law is also a trustee why you have not raised finger at him because both those trustees are Sikh Fedration 's members relatives. Come to your senses if you want to blame somebody come with truth and honesty.

Amrik malari has been the pardon for the last 30 years so how you bring the decline of Sangat and Sangats money on the Sikh federation baffles me.

All this deversion talk away from the main issue just shows how these people work malri been doing this for 30 years a snake in a distar. Why don't you answer the allegations instead of walking around like nothing happened makes you look guilty. Typical politician ruining the gurdwara the sangat broken you might have won here but Maharaj will summon you in maharaj court and you won't be able to spin your way out of that! I pity you for you to think you can take maharaj house and turn it into a dirty political play ground goodluck you need it

Anonymous said...

You talking about filth at the camps? Is this the camp where malri was doing his own sister inlaw in dirty old man no shame or sharam and you go around point fingers at others when malri and miss Manjit have known to be getting physical with each other! Disgusting malri this so called good man is a dirty old pimp that beds women other than his wife! No wonder he had his panj piyariya pushed forward to do beadbi in choosing the gurdwara committee! Only malri could get his women to do his dirty work! Well done Mr Malri as he would say pimping ain't easy when living in caldmore

Filth at camps alrite. Well his youngest son and daughter in law learnt from the best Mr Malri. Nothing like keeping it in the family. Just disgusting!

Successful learning initiatives are a key purpose of such charities but financial diligence is key responsibility also of those who took responsibility..one doesn't replace the other...charity commission rules are there to guide...if there is prima gacie irregularity or anomaly it is a requirement of good practise that it us questioned if only to confirm absence of any neglect..of duty.

What filth at camps. Getting Bamnian to dance in the Pleck Sikh Community Centre is sucha isnt it. Mr marli shouls feel ashamed. Why are the santhia and keertan classes stopped. Thats not linked to the camps is it. Mr Marli is a kanjar who was caight with his own sister in law. Should be ashamed with a white beard. This people are touts. Father stops stuf that was for the next generations. And son get police from.india to catch the kharkus

DON'T believe a word of this crap that has been written about Amrik S Malri & his son.
The other party (The Feds) Are taking revenge for not getting their own way @ Pleck Gurudwara. Anon comments are being posted by The Feds chamcheh!
They'll now be moving onto the next local Gurudwara (beware) & it won't be long before a new blog is posted to get you all talking or swearing in some cases even if you don't know the facts.
It's shocking how easily people are lead on by such stories, the author should write the next Harry Potter sequel.....to be continued

To the above poster, if this is true then please explain the allegations with proof, because the land registry clearly shows truth.

How can u guys stoop so low & write ridiculous filth about someone's mother, sister or daughter.
You yourselves gave grown up from these sikhi camps, then become group leaders have had love marriages with other group leaders & now trying to get into the committee & make executive decisions.
When it doesn't go your way you decide to gang up & write a blog & edit a few pictures.
Very courageous guys, your mothers should be proud of you! You think you're doing something useful for the Sikh kaum by writing false allegations. You won't become a Sukha or Jinda by doing this kind of dirty work!!!

Why is Malri only a snake since he turned his back on the Federation ? Please Sukh Padda answer that first before blaming anyone.
For 30 years he stood by you and your cronies but when he started to question and challenge the Feds he becomes a snake.
Go get a life.

I agree with the comments made 7:22 AM, March 04, 2015. The remarks over Malri and his family appear to be a personal grievance by someone/group. Any false accusations are not good for the sikh community. The criticism is not based on any fact. e.g. showing copies of title deeds for a property purchase demonstrates that Laxmi made a lot of money from the transaction. It is not evidence that Malri made any money. If you have such evidence that he personally benefited, please provide this evidence. It is easy to criticise your enemy on a blog but address your personal issues directly with him. You have not shown any evidence yet to support your claims.

Anonymous said...

Am I right in guessing that it's one of the Pyaria that's replying on behalf of Malri as they seem to do all his dirty work for him. Everyone that had come across him knows exactly what kind of bundah he is. The guy is anti gurmat, Thinks he is bigger than the Akal Takht and goes against it. Let's not forget he took down the Shaheed Singhs photos and then kicked up a fuss when the previous committee put them back up. The guy is a government agent.

Anonymous said...

Can some1 please upload the video of him throwing punches in the gurdwara and the 1 when he saying the Hindu dancing singing in the centre is Bhagat Kabir Ji bani? Video don't lie it's clear his voice and sangat can judge is gurmat bani or Hindu navritha dancing

Anonymous said...

If malari not wrong please answer the following

Why has he gone against the akal thakt by putting in benches into Darbar shaib? After akal thakt issued sundesh and Pleck already complaint with akal thakt with having a room at the back. Why? Is he bigger than the akal thakt

He also was at the forefront when youth came down to remove the benches 1st time videos clearly show him throwing punches in the gurdwara when he wasn't even part of that current committe at that time! Why? Why the Violence and causing disturbance for benches that hadn't even been passed official in the committee meeting? Why malri?

Why did he remove shaheed photos he claims to re decorate fair enough once walls where painted why was he adamant not to put them back up? Instead hid the photos no satkar for the Singhs that gave there lives for us to be here today? Why?

Why is it that he stopped the gurmat camp a camp that was annually held for 28 years? Does the teaching of gurbani hurt you so much?

Why was he adamant on using a builder who's quote was tens of thousands more than any other builder why waste more money for the same work? The sangats money! At the same time have major house improvements carried out by the same builder as specially when the gurdwara work was still outstanding and getting delayed? Why? Did he use gurdwara over priced job to cover his own and Manjits?

Why did he cost the gurdwara 30k in damages to a old Giani that he dismissed illegally? He went to court and lost the gurdwara money

Add up all the amounts yourself what you have cost the gurdwara then answer the sangat! I can count easily £200k plus that he has cost the gurdwara yet he is adamant on been main man at the gurdwara if this happened any other institution he would be sacked and investigated!

Why has he allowed Hindus to hire the centre and preform Hindu navritha dancing when questioned by a youth videoing secretly he advises the youth it's bhagt Kabir ji bani? Watch the video for yourself!

You can't have so many discepencies and many more if your not doing something wrong come on answer these simple questions if you haven't do nothing wrong then your owed a apology but you won't clear your name! Why not?

Also I agree the personal attack on his kids are out of order even they know deep down there dad is wrong you shouldn't drag them into this

Mr malari has some serious explaining to do
I for 1 would like answers to clarify these issues I hope to god I'm wrong and he hasn't had a penny from the gurdwara or cost gurdwara so much financial damage as that's just laughing at maharaj this is maharaj house and maya from the sangat not mine or his

Makes me feel so sad that the gurdwara sangat is destroyed it's sickening people can do this to gods maharajs house

Anonymous said...

Not been funny but his whole family went to that camp now he stops it

How did his daughter marriage go lasted all of a month she then ran off with a gora to Oxford yet he wants to give others sikha about affairs and love marriages he known to have slept with his own sister inlaw go ask his family the guy is besharama

Feel sorry for Teji that his name getting dragged into this not his fault his dad's a fudu a kanjar

Malari if you had any ounce of desceny you would resign and pay the gurdwara back for all the financial damage you cause/taken!

Every1 makes mistakes own up to them before it's too late and your summond to maharaj court you fool
