British Panjabi-Sikh youth took to the streets of Birmingham demanding police protection from Islamic extremism.
Protesters chanted and held up placards as they marched from Soho Road, in Handsworth, to West Midlands Police headquarters at Lloyd House.
Their demands - greater police protection from Islamic extremists who targeted Sikh youth at Schools, colleges and Universities and a ban on unregulated and unauthorised preachers that groom and brainwash youth in British institutions.
One protestor present said, “This has been happening for years, groups of men stand outside schools and colleges harassing girls and guys of other faiths”
“We don’t want our schools and colleges turned into extremist religious conversion camps, the police must monitor who is preaching and what they are preaching”
The rally was sparked amongst fears that a young Sikh girl from West Bromwich was actively targeted and "groomed" over a period of 2 yrs and her disappearance was orchestrated and assisted by a gang of extremist men.
