Black Youths Racially Attack Punjabi-Sikh Student

Date: Fri, 9 Mar 2007

A young Punjabi-Sikh student who was racially attacked by a mob of girls on a bus recently accused the driver and other passengers of turning a blind eye to her ordeal.

Ramanpreet Kaur Bhalla said her pleas for help were ignored as she was left at the mercy of the teenage racist thugs who dragged her from the vehicle and laid into her.

The 19-year-old student said the experience had "shattered her faith in humanity" and left her scared to travel on public transport.

Travel chiefs promised an urgent investigation. Footage from on-board CCTV cameras has been recovered and handed to police.

The incident has raised the issue about whether members of the public should step in to help fellow citizens defend themselves from violence, over recent months there have been many such attacks on members of the Punjabi-Sikh community.

Ramanpreet said: "I was so shocked no-one wanted to help me. They could all see what was happening to me but stood by and did nothing.
"We're all human and should help each other out."

She added: "Because of what happened, I can't go back on the bus any more."
The A-Level student, who plans to study psychology, was travelling home on the number 11 bus when the attack happened.

She said a gang of eight black girls started causing trouble with other passengers, forcing the driver to stop the bus at the Greenhill Road junction on Rookery Road, Handsworth, Birmingham.

As Ramanpreet joined passengers to get off the bus the gangs of girls barged into her.

"One of them spat in my face," said Ramanpreet, who lives in Handsworth with her parents.

"They grabbed my hair and dragged me off the bus and onto the pavement. They kicked me and slapped me.

"I was scared. They were in a group and I was on my own. No one did anything to help me, I couldn't believe it.

"They could have had a knife. I could have been stabbed. "I was shouting 'Help, please, someone help me'. But the bus driver and passengers just stood there. No one lifted a finger."

The gang eventually fled with Ramanpreet's purse containing cash and valuables.

A spokesman for Travel West Midlands said: "We have identified the bus and driver, who has now been interviewed.

"It is clear there was a scuffle and there was little support coming from other passengers.

"We are still actively investigating the incident and will be supporting the police in their investigation."

Sher-e-Panjab Moderators Comments
There have been many such racially motivated attacks targeting the Punjabi-Sikh community and in most cases the perpetrators are usually Blacks and Muslims. The Punjabi-Sikh community need to ensure that they are reporting any such incidents to the relevant authorities and ensuring that they seek justice through campaigning and pressure groups, where they feel that little is being done by the authorities.

I am very sorry to hear this, I would just like to say that don't be afarid from anyone and Guru Gobind Singh ji has given us the permission to defend our selve and he made us strong.

I was attacked alot of time's in school and than one day when I was attacked for the second time than I was very angry and I had to do something about it becasue the teacher's and the police were doing nothing about it, so I read our beautiful Sikh history which really made me very strong and where I read that one Sikh can take a million at the same time with the blessing's of WAHEGURU JI (GOD).

In loving memory of Shaheed Kartar Singh Sarabha

Revolutionist Kartar Singh Sarabha, was just nineteen years old when he became a Shaheed in the name of freedom and justice. He appeared like a storm, ignited the flame of revolution and tried to wake up a sleeping Panjab. Such courage, self-confidence, and dedication is rarely found. Of the Panjabis who can be called revolutionaries in true sense of the word, Kartar Singh's name comes at the top.
Revolution lived in his veins. There was only one aim of his life, only one desire, and only one hope - all that held meaning in his life was revolution.
