Sikh Youth Representatives Meeting with Police Chiefs
14 June 2007

Following the march to Lloyd house on Saturday by some 200 Sikh youth expressing their concerns regarding the targeted grooming of young women by fundamentalists a meeting was held with the police and representatives of the Sikh youth today 11 June 2007 at Lloyd house.

The agenda of this meeting was not about faith, but the implication of mainland British security and activities by fundamentalist within UK schools, colleges and universities.

The issues raised and discussed were:-

  • Explore opportunities for police and the Sikh youth to develop a constructive partnership of working together

  • The "conversion" of a devout Sikh to change from one faith to another warrants further investigation as to the motives and tactics employed in this process. This is especially relevant when one considers that of the four 7/7 bombers and the shoe bomber, 2 were recent converts. And if someone can be groomed to change their faith, they can equally be groomed to carry out an act of violence.

  • There are increasing number of such cases across communities where young people are being targeted at UK colleges and universities

  • The psychological welfare of the girl that promoted this community reaction and further investigation of the individual who is associated with this girl and himself a recent convert from Christanity.

Most importantly, It was also highlighted that should any act of atrocity be carried out as a result of these groomed conversions, then the Police have been alerted to activities in Midland based colleges and universities, as a result of this meeting by the Sikh youth.
The meeting was constructive and taken seriously by the Police with positive steps towards developing a longer term working relationships.

I read that letter that was circulated informing muslim males that they should target sikh females (and all non-believer females) i feel this is a very serious situation for your people, i am a white aetheist male who votes BNP but don't hold that against me haha, i was always taught that sikhs were great warriors who fought alongside us at times.
As you must know there is not very many sikhs in britain and with an ever increasing amount of muslims this situation will only get worse for your women and mine, i am curious as too which party you will vote come the general election?.
You may be surprised too know that the bnp has had very good feedback from the sikh community in britain and that there is a large number of people within the party that would like too see your people come aboard, whatever the BBC/GUARDIAN etc says about us we are not all racist football hooligans.

Dear BNP, Thank you for your comments. I would like to emphasise that the views and concerns of the British Panjabi-Sikh youth are not in any way politically or racially driven. They are genuine concerns of radicalisation of British youth, and the implications that has on vulnerable and impressionable Sikh students in Schools, colleges and Universities.

A large contribution to these problems is a result of the Sikh communities leaders failure to recognise these issues and being caught-up in a web of cultural taboos and “Political correctness”.

Again your views and support are welcome, as from any party, but we have no intention of allying ourselves with any Political set-up.

Can you please give a list of the universities in which you are active.

I believe that groups such as yours' are important to prevent Sikh girls from joining the Muslim faith.

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.
