Backlash faced by Sikh female who loves Bhangra

 

Our very first – British Bindi produced video, is about Pamm Kaur; a British Sikh girl in her early 20’s, expressing her passion for Bhangra Dancing.

“A lot of people believe that I shouldn’t be dancing because I wear a turban” – @pammkaur_

Pam received a lot of backlash and abuse when her dancing video went viral; all due to being a turban-wearing Singhni – from articles titled ‘Trashy Bibiyan: Pam Kaur’ to abuse directly to her via social media.

We wanted to know what Bhangra dancing means to Pamm and how she deals with the backlash:
