Anti-Panthic Activities

Anti-Panthic Activities Continues in our Gurdwara Sahibs

Sarabha Panjab News

30 August 2007

On the 16th of August 2007 after sustained campaigning by UK Sikh youth, Sri Akal Takht, Amritsar reiterated the Reht Maryada for Anand Karaj ceremonies.
Sri Akaal Takht Sahib is the Throne of the Almighty and the orders issued by it are called Hukamnamas. Hukamnama, literally means "Royal Order."

Participation of someone previously of a religion other than Sikhism in an Anand Karaj ceremony.

The existing Code of conduct regarding persons of other religions participating in an Anand Karaj ceremony is as follows:-
k. Persons professing faiths other than the Sikh faith cannot be joined in wedlock by the Anand Karaj ceremony.

Dispite this many Gurudwara Comittess across the UK are choosing to abuse this Maryada for financial gains.

As of 16th August 2007 new guidelines issues by Sri Akal Takhat

Any persons previously of a religion other than Sikhism must show his/her commitment to the PERSUIT of Sikhi by applying the following criteria:

Include Singh or Kaur in the name - Changing by Deed Poll including Passport & Driving Licence.

On the weekend of 25-26 August 07 Sarabha Panjab learned of at least 4 Gurudwaras where this Hukamana was breached.

Gurdwara Singh Sabha, Cross Road, Coventry
Singh Sabha, Hounslow
Gurdwara Leicester
Gurdwara Glasgow

Gurudwara Committee Cover-Ups!

Sarabha Panjab first exposed some of the devious and corrupt people that run our Gurdwaras in June 2007, when Ramgarhia Gurdwara, Graham Street, Birmingham orchestrated an anand Karaj ceremony involving a Muslim boy.
The Committee tried to cover this up with lies, one of which included “The young man can not change his name to Singh because of his past”.

Sarabha Panjab can now confirm that the Sikh girl who married this boy has now converted to Islam. The boy had no intention of adopting Sikhism, it was a total cover-up by the Gurdwara Committee.

Sikh youth are sick and tired of corrupt Committee members making their own rules and abusing the Sikh Maryada.

Similarly, last weekend, Singh Sabha Gurdwara, Coventry conducted an Anand Karaj ceremony for a Christian boy. Again saying he cannot change his name for whatever reason – NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!

People plan months, sometimes years in advance for their wedding. “Not having time to change name to Singh” – This is no excuse!
It is about time Sikh Sangat stand up and question these so called leaders into their actions.

Note: There are some devious members of a particular committee who are trying to turn this debate into personal feuds and anti-Jathabandi.
We make it clear; this issue is NOT against any Jatha, group or individuals. This campaign is solely for the preservation of Akal Takhat Maryada, Sikh ethics and Gurudwara code of conduct.

Anand Sanskar"Marriage Ceremony"

This is a message to all the Sikh Sangat that according to the Rehat Maryada only Sikh couples (male/female) can engage in the Anand Karaj Ceremony. If the couple or either one of them is not a Sikh, then they must embrace the Sikh faith.
This includes that they must change their second name to Singh or Kaur in their official document (e.g. driving licence, identity card, passport) before the marriage.

Aggressive Conversions documentary

BBC "Asian" Network Documentary claims that aggressive conversions to Radical-Islam by Extremists does no occur in UK

Sarabha Panjab News

23 August 2007

If the idiots from BBC “Asian” network spent taxpayer’s money researching the topic in a little more detail, they would realise why the Sikh community have reason for concern.

Student was shot by 'Muslim Boys' gang (From 2006)

THE grief-stricken mum of a murdered student has told for the first time how gangsters executed him for refusing to convert to Islam.

Heartbroken Ruth Marriott revealed how adoring son Adrian was given the chilling ultimatum, "convert or die" days before he was blasted five times in the head.

Detectives have vowed to hunt down the brutal killers of Adrian Marriott this week after a coroner sensationally ruled the student WAS murdered.

An inquest heard this week how gun gangsters The Muslim Boys blasted Adrian five times at close range just weeks before his 21st birthday.Three members of the mob - whose sickening attempts to hijack Islam for criminal purposes have incensed law-abiding Muslims - were accused of plotting the murder after trying to convert Adrian, a member of the rival Peel Den Crew.

The BBC Asian network also claims that there are no links between aggressive conversions and terrorism.

The "Muslim Boys" gang are generally Radical Islamic converts and are known for forcing youths into conversion.

Quote from:

Similarities have been drawn between its members and shoebomber Richard Reid, who was born in Bromley.Reid was a black Muslim convert who was involved in criminal activity before he became an extremist Muslim and tried to blow up an American passenger jet in 2001.”

Exposed!! Racially-Motivated Sexual Exploitation

Pakistani Pervert Gangs Groom White Girls for Sex

Britian waking up to Pakistani Sex Rackets?
About Time Sikh Victims Speak out?

Sarabha Panjab News

11 August 2007

A hidden world in which Pakistani Muslim men “groom” young white girls for sex has been exposed with the jailing yesterday of two men for child-abuse offences.

Zulfqar Hussain, 46, and Qaiser Naveed, 32, from east Lancashire, were each jailed for five years and eight months after exploiting two girls aged under 16 by plying them with alcohol and drugs before having sex with them.

Both men pleaded guilty at Preston Crown Court to abduction, sexual activity with a child and the supply of a controlled drug.

Despite being told explicitly by police and social services that both girls were under-age and should be returned to care, the men picked up one girl from a children’s home in Blackburn and then drove on to collect her friend who was living in temporary foster care in North Wales.

Naveed, from Burnley, gave one girl the first of five Ecstasy tablets at a motorway service station before having sex with her on the back seat of the car while the group drove back to Lancashire. The court was told that the two men later took the girls to an address in Blackburn where Hussain, from Blackburn, had sex with the second girl and gave her a total of ten Ecstasy tablets.

Yesterday Judge Andrew Gilbart, QC, jailed the two Pakistani men under new sex laws designed to protect youngsters from being groomed for sexual activity. Judge Gilbart said: “This is a truly shocking offence. You knew them. They were exploited for sex by the two of you. No other description is possible. They were under-age girls who you knew it was your responsibility to protect and not exploit.”

The trial came amid growing concern at the attitudes of some Pakistani men towards white girls which campaigners for women claim few people wish to address.

Parents have complained that in parts of the country with large Pakistani communities white girls as young as 12 are being targeted for sex by older Pakistani men yet the authorities are unwilling to act because of fears of being labelled racist.

Ann Cryer, a Labour member of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, has been at the forefront of attempting to tackle the problem after receiving complaints from mothers in her constituency about young Pakistani men targeting their under-age daughters.

Although campaigners claim that hundreds of young girls are already being passed around men within the Pakistani community for sex, she said that attempts to raise the problem with community leaders had met with little success, with most of them being in a state of denial about it.

After the case, the mother of one of the girls, who cannot be named for legal reasons, welcomed the jail terms. “This will hopefully act as a warning to others,” the woman said. She had had to leave the court as details of the men’s sexual relations with the teenagers were read out. After the trial, Ms Cryer said that young Pakistani men were caught between two cultures having been brought up in a Western society in families while retaining the cultural values of the Asian sub-continent.

She said: “The family and cultural norms of their community means they are expected to marry a first cousin or other relative back in a village in Mirapur or wherever the family comes from. Therefore, until that marriage is arranged they look out for sex.

“At the point in their lives when they are ready for this sort of activity, Muslims cannot go to Muslim girls because it would be a terrible breach of the honour of the community and their family to have sex with an Muslim girl before marriage.” She said that the reason Muslim men targeted very young white girls was because older white girls knew that a relationship with an Muslim youth was unlikely to last as the community would seek an arranged marriage with someone from the Asian sub- continent. Police and groups campaigning to protect women insisted that the grooming of youngsters is not segregated along race lines, though there is concern at the attitudes of some young Pakistani Muslim men towards white girls.

Parents claim that criminal networks are able to prey on young girls because the authorities are reluctant to tackle the issue for fear of upsetting race relations in areas of the North West with large ethnic minority communities.

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.
