Two Sikhs beheaded in NWFP!

Image shows NWF provinces in which Sikhs have a sizable population and have been forced to pay a Jizya Tax. Two Sikhs were beheaded when their families could not afford to pay a ransom, fears have increased for the safety of other potential victims.

It was with great sadness that I heard of the tragic loss of two Sikh men in a Taliban beheading, yesterday. The Sikh Community has been supportive of Pakistani Christians and Dr Jasdev Rai of the Sikh Human Right Group attended our recent protest from the Pakistani Embassy to 10 Downing Street. We will be praying for the Sikh community of Pakistan and condemn the actions of the Taliban. The BPCA are submitting a petition to 10 Downing Street after a 12 year old Christian Girl - working as a domestic servant - was tortured, raped and killed. Perhaps you would like to support our petition?

We are taking the petition to 10 Downing Street and the Pakistani Embassy on Thursday 25th February at 12:00. We have now invited leaders from the Sikh Community to generate a Petition before this event so that they can submit alongside us in a joint delegation. We must work together to stop vulnerable communities form being persecuted in Pakistan.

Many of you may not be aware of my strong association with the UK Sikh Community:

Minority faith groups will need to galvanise themselves for a protracted battle against oppression and will only succeed if united. If not I can only envisage more sorrow for our communities.

  1. The taliban does it since they truly follow the Islam holy book Quran which says "Convert or Kill"
