The Facts

· 256 Sikh girls were converted to Islam in 2001. This excludes cases, which are unknown. (In 2004 the figure is estimated to be a lot higher than 2001)

· In the last 7 years, 66 Sikh girls have been converted to Islam, taken to Pakistan, their passports taken off them and sold as prostitutes. (This is not a myth, Scotland Yard have a ‘Forced Marriage Unit’ set up by the Home Office who are also aware of this!)

· A scheme set up known as ‘K to K’ (Kaur to Khan) pays Muslim youth £7,000 for each Sikh girl they convert to Islam.

· A leaflet titled ‘A message to Muslim youth’ was privately circulated a few years ago encouraging Muslim youth to convert Sikh girls. It stated:

“It is easy to take the Sikh girls out on a date as they generally like a good drink and from there gradually they can be brought into Islam.”

· Muslims who convert Sikh girls claim that Islam believes in equality amongst men and women, however the Koran states:

“And if there are not two men (available for witnesses), then a man and two women, such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (two women) errs, the other can remind her.” (2:282)

· Muslims recently stated nationally that they plan to make the UK into an Islamic state by 2025.

Why are our Sisters being converted?

Our sisters are converted to Islam because they date Muslim guys. The Muslim guys pamper our vulnerable sisters with gifts. Gradually she is brainwashed and falls in ‘love’. She is told of the so-called advantages of being a Muslim and the so-called disadvantages of being a Sikh. In some cases black magic is used to psychologically torment our sisters. Eventually it leads to marriage; therefore the girl converts to Islam and abandons her princess (Kaur) status and her family. All this goes on while her brothers are too busy fighting amongst each other at bhangra gigs and her parents are too busy working!

How can it be prevented?

Please do not be misled into believing that the Muslim guy you are dating is ‘different’. The majority of cases start from when a Muslim guy dates a Sikh girl. By the time you know it, the Sikh girl converts. If the Muslim guy claims to be in love then why doesn’t he convert to Sikhism? Many of our sisters have fell into this trap and have ruined their lives.

Sometimes there’s no turning back…prevention is better than cure!

Education is the key to preventing this ‘Islamification’. Most of us can just about name the ten Gurus nowadays. Do we really know enough about Sikhism to stand our ground if questioned? What would you reply to statements made by Islamic extremists such as; ‘Guru Nanak Dev Ji was a Muslim’, ‘Sikhism is a ‘man-made' religion’, ‘Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji committed suicide’. These are the sorts of statements these fanatics use to convert Sikhs.

Here are some useful websites to turn to:

Inspiration

Sikhs should be prepared to die, rather than converting to Islam and give up their faith in Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Why didn’t the Sikh mothers weaken in the 17th Century, when they were made to grind their children’s bodies whilst wearing their child’s limbs around their neck? Why? They didn’t falter so we can be proud to be recognised as Sikhs today!

Sikhism is one of the only religions, which believes in gender equality. Guru Granth Sahib Ji says on ang 473:

"From the woman is our birth, in the woman's womb are we shaped; To the woman we are engaged, to the woman we are wedded; The woman is our friend and from woman is the family;

Through the woman are the bonds of the world; Why call woman evil that gives birth to the world’s leaders? From the woman is the woman, without woman there is none".

This is not a hate campaign against Islam, this is the truth and sometimes the truth hurts. We apologise if we have made any errors in this article, or if we have offended anyone, we only speak of such atrocities because we care about the future of Sikhism: our mothers and sisters. To lose one Sikh girl is to lose a whole generation.
