  2. Grooming gang review kept secret as Home Office claims releasing findings ‘not in public interest’ Exclusive: Freedom of Information request refused so ministers have ‘safe space’ to discuss policy The government is refusing to release official research on the characteristics of grooming gangs, claiming it is not in the “public interest”. Survivors accused ministers of making “empty promises”, while a man who prosecuted abusers in Rochdale called for the Home Office to “show some courage and publish” its findings. It comes after The Independent revealed that almost 19,000 suspected child sexual exploitation victims were identified by local authorities in just one year, sparking renewed calls for prevention efforts. Sajid Javid promised the review as home secretary in July 2018, pledging that there would be “no no-go areas of inquiry”. “I will not let cultural or political sensitivities get in the way of understanding the problem and doing something about it,” he said at the time. “We know that in these recent high profile cases, where people convicted have been disproportionately from a Pakistani background. “I’ve instructed my officials to explore the particular contexts and characteristics of these types of gangs.” But the government has made no further announcements on the review following Mr Javid’s move to the Treasury last year. It has, however, said it will soon publish a national strategy that will set out a “whole system response to all forms of child sexual abuse”. In December, The Independent was told that the work had been completed but would only be used for internal policy-making and would not be publicly released. In response to a freedom of information (FOI) request asking for the research carried out and any reports drawn up as a result, the Home Office confirmed it held the information but would not release it. In a letter to The Independent, officials said they had applied a “public interest test” but the information was exempt from the act because it concerned the development of government policy. “One of the main purposes of the exemption is to protect the ‘safe space’ necessary for ministers and officials to consider policy options in private without risk of premature disclosure,” it added. “Disclosure would risk pre-empting decisions still to be made by ministers. In addition, the information could be misleading if made public and used out of context.” The Home Office’s FOI unit said the documents also included “operationally sensitive” information from police and could prejudice ongoing investigations. The letter added: “We recognise that this topic in general and any insight and learning are matters of strong public interest, although it does not necessarily follow that it is in the public interest to disclose any specific information relating to it.” Sammy Woodhouse, a Rotherham victim who helped expose the scandal, told The Independent she believed the research was going to be made public. “I always got the impression they were going to do a full report and get something official,” she said. “A lot of people were backing it, it’s ridiculous they’re not releasing it. “We keep hearing ‘we’re going to do this and that’, and when it actually comes to it there’s nothing. It’s empty promises all the time.” Another woman, who was also sexually abused by a grooming gang in Rotherham and wanted to remain anonymous, said she was “disappointed and frustrated” by the decision not to release the report. “The government’s repeated failure to acknowledge the role of racism and religious bigotry in grooming gang crime has led to inadequate investigation, protection and prosecution,” she said. “Prevention of future grooming gang crime can only come through counter-narrative sex and relationships education.” The woman is campaigning for changes to hate crime guidance and the creation of a parliamentary committee to examine gender-based violence linked to faith and belief. Read more Huddersfield grooming gang ‘used and abused young girls for sex’ A former chief prosecutor who initiated charges against a grooming gang in Rochdale warned that far-right groups were using a “vacuum” of reliable information to spread their beliefs and gain support. Nazir Afzal said he had been calling for formal research on potential links between ethnicity and street-based abuse since 2012. “The misinformation and anecdote are exploited by white supremacists and others with an agenda,” he added. “The sooner we have evidence, the sooner we can truly confront it. The Home Office should show some courage and publish.” Mr Javid’s original pledge was in response to a letter from a cross-party group of politicians who called for the Home Office to undertake research into common patterns of behaviour and drivers of grooming gangs. Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, was among the signatories and voiced hope at the time that the review would prevent abuse and protect children. The Home Office has said it will soon publish a national strategy that will set out a “whole system response to all forms of child sexual abuse”. A spokesperson for the government department said: “Child sexual abuse is a sickening crime and predators who abuse children will face the full force of the law. “We’re pursuing work on a number of fronts to understand the characteristics of group-based offending and the contexts in which it occurs. This includes ongoing work commissioned by the previous home secretary and will inform future government policies on child sexual abuse. “New sentencing laws will also ensure the most serious violent and sexual offenders spend time in prison that matches the severity of their crimes, protecting victims and giving the public confidence in the criminal justice system.” https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/grooming-gang-rotherham-review-home-office-findings-a9344896.html

  4. Rochdale grooming gang members remain in UK 18 months after losing court battle against deportation Exclusive: Home Office accused of prioritising offenders with Jamaican roots over sex abusers Three members of a Rochdale grooming gang remain in the UK more than 18 months after they lost an appeal against losing their British citizenship, it has emerged. Victims of Abdul Aziz, Adil Khan and Qari Abdul Rauf have reported recent sightings of the men in the Greater Manchester area. The trio have been able to return to the town where they committed years of horrific abuse after being released from prison. Khan got an underage victim pregnant while he was in his 40s, while Aziz and Rauf trafficked teenage girls for sex in their taxis. One of the prosecutors who brought charges against the Rochdale grooming gang said victims had informed him of several sightings of all three men since Christmas. Nazir Afzal OBE, the former chief crown prosecutor for northwest England, told The Independent: “Given the zeal with which the Home Office is dealing with offenders with Jamaican roots, I and the victims and their families are somewhat surprised that these men continue to walk the streets of Rochdale and keep running into those whom they abused. “Having read that one of the deportees to Jamaica was convicted only of dangerous driving, one has to ask if driving a car erratically is viewed as more dangerous and more of a priority than a man who has sexually abused children.” The Home Office announced its intention to remove the men’s British citizenship in July 2015, saying the move was in the public interest because of their “serious and organised offences”. Aziz, Khan and Rauf launched a legal challenge but lost the case at the Court of Appeal in August 2018, paving the way for them to be deported to Pakistan. The court heard that the three convicts were dual nationals, having moved to the UK from Pakistan but became naturalised Judges said the Home Office’s steps to remove their UK citizenship were a “prelude to possible deportation to Pakistan”. Each of them challenged the decision, arguing it amounted to a breach of their human rights and the interests of their children, but their cases were rejected by both the government’s First Tier Tribunal (FTT) and Upper Tribunal. The Court of Appeal concluded that the Home Office and FTT had not acted unlawfully and were “entitled to find that the deprivation of citizenship in the case of each appellant would be compliant” with the law. Lord Justice Sales said: “All the men treated the girls as though they were worthless and beyond all respect. They were motivated by lust and greed.” They were jailed in 2012 as part of a gang who plied girls as young as 13 with drink and drugs and passed them around for sex. Aziz, a taxi driver known as “the Master”, was a leading member of the group and was given a nine-year sentence for trafficking a 15-year-old girl for sex and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child. He was married with three children at the time of the abuse. Khan, also a taxi driver, received eight years for conspiracy and trafficking a 13-year-old girl who became pregnant with his child when he was in his 40s. He also targeted a 15-year-old girl and physically abused her when she complained about her treatment. Rauf, a married taxi driver with five children, was handed six years for trafficking a teenage girl and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child, after driving one victim to locations where she had sex with him and others up to 20 times. Co-defendant and grooming ringleader Shabir Ahmed was also notified that he would be stripped of his British citizenship but remains in prison serving a 22-year term for rape. Aziz, Khan and Rauf’s continued presence in Rochdale emerged as the government faced a legal challenge over a deportation flight to Jamaica. After campaigners raised concern that not all of around 50 people on board had access to legal advice, a plane took off with only 17 people on board last month. There were questions over proportionality when it emerged that one deportee had been convicted of dangerous driving. The government would not comment on the Rochdale case but said it had deported more than 51,000 foreign national offenders since 2010. It defended the deportation flight to Jamaica, saying those on board were serious or persistent criminals and included men convicted of rape, violent crimes and drug offences. A Home Office spokesperson added: “The government will do everything within its power to deport those who have no right to remain in the UK.”

As ever, dasmesh pita didn't leave us unprepared for any of the realities of the world, if we just open up our eyes: Sri Charitropakhyan Sahib jee Series - Charitar #105 - The tale of Taas Beg Chritar 105: Tale of Taas Beg ਚੌਪਈ ॥ Chaupaee ਅਲਿਮਰਦਾ ਕੌ ਸੁਤ ਇਕ ਰਹੈ ॥ ਤਾਸ ਬੇਗ ਨਾਮਾ ਜਗ ਕਹੈ ॥ Alimardan (a king) had a son whom the world knew as Taas Beg. ਬਚਾ ਜੌਹਰੀ ਕੋ ਤਿਨ ਹੇਰਿਯੋ ॥ ਮਹਾ ਰੁਦ੍ਰ ਰਿਪੁ ਤਾ ਕੌ ਘੇਰਿਯੋ ॥੧॥ He (Beg) came across the son of a jeweller and he was overpowered by the god of love.(1) ਤਾ ਕੇ ਦ੍ਵਾਰੇ ਦੇਖਨ ਜਾਵੈ ॥ ਰੂਪ ਨਿਹਾਰਿ ਹ੍ਰਿਦੈ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਵੈ ॥ He would everyday go to his house and find solace by seeing him. ਕੇਲ ਕਰੋ ਯਾ ਸੋ ਚਿਤ ਭਾਯੋ ॥ ਤੁਰਤੁ ਦੂਤ ਗ੍ਰਿਹ ਤਾਹਿ ਪਠਾਯੋ ॥੨॥ As he felt to make love with him to seek comfort, he immediately sent him his emissary.(2) ਦੂਤ ਅਨੇਕ ਉਪਚਾਰ ਬਨਾਵੈ ॥ ਮੋਹਨ ਰਾਇ ਹਾਥ ਨਹਿ ਆਵੈ ॥ The emissary tried hard but Mohan Raae (the boy) would not consent. ਤਿਹ ਤਾ ਸੋ ਇਹ ਭਾਂਤਿ ਉਚਾਰਿਯੋ ॥ ਤਾਸ ਬੇਗ ਤਾ ਸੌ ਖਿਝਿ ਮਾਰਿਯੋ ॥੩॥ When he conveyed the decision to him (Beg), he was perturbed and beat him up.(3) ਚੋਟਨ ਲਗੇ ਦੂਤ ਰਿਸਿ ਭਰਿਯੋ ॥ ਮੂਰਖ ਜਾਨਿ ਜਤਨ ਤਿਹ ਕਰਿਯੋ ॥ The emissary became furious on receiving the retribution and, ਮੋਹਨ ਆਜੁ ਕਹਿਯੋ ਮੈ ਐਹੋ ॥ considering him to be an idiotic, decided to do something. ਤਾ ਕੌ ਤਾਸ ਬੇਗ ਤੂ ਪੈਹੋ ॥੪॥ He told Taas Beg, ‘Mohan has consented to come today.’(4) ਯਹ ਸੁਨਿ ਬੈਨ ਫੂਲਿ ਜੜ ਗਯੋ ॥ ਸਾਚ ਬਾਤ ਚੀਨਤ ਚਿਤ ਭਯੋ ॥ Hearing this, his joy knew no bounds, as he took it to be true. ਲੋਗ ਉਠਾਇ ਪਾਨ ਮਦ ਕਰਿਯੋ ॥ He sent away the people and started to drink wine. ਮਾਨੁਖ ਹੁਤੋ ਜੋਨਿ ਪਸੁ ਪਰਿਯੋ ॥੫॥ Although human being, he had embraced the life of an animal.(5) ਮੋ ਮਨ ਮੋਲ ਮੋਹਨਹਿ ਲਯੋ ॥ ਤਬ ਤੇ ਮੈ ਚੇਰੋ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਗਯੋ ॥ (He thought,) ‘My heart is already in the hands of Mohan and I have become his slave since (I saw him). ਏਕ ਬਾਰ ਜੌ ਤਾਹਿ ਨਿਹਾਰੋ ॥ ਤਨੁ ਮਨੁ ਧਨ ਤਾ ਪੈ ਸਭ ਵਾਰੋ ॥੬॥ ‘Who-so-ever has a glimpse of him, sacrifices his own life over him.’(6) ਬਿਨੁ ਸੁਧਿ ਭਏ ਦੂਤ ਤਿਹ ਚੀਨੋ ॥ ਅੰਡ ਫੋਰਿ ਆਸਨ ਪਰ ਦੀਨੋ ॥ When the emissary judged he was totally intoxicated with wine, he broke an egg and spread it on his bed. ਭੂਖਨ ਬਸਤ੍ਰ ਪਾਗ ਤਿਹ ਹਰੀ ॥ ਮੂਰਖ ਕੌ ਸੁਧਿ ਕਛੂ ਨ ਪਰੀ ॥੭॥ He took away his ornaments, the clothes and the turban, and the fool remained unaware.(7) ਮਦਰਾ ਕੀ ਅਤਿ ਭਈ ਖੁਮਾਰੀ ॥ ਪ੍ਰਾਤ ਲਗੇ ਜੜ ਬੁਧਿ ਨ ਸੰਭਾਰੀ ॥ The intoxication through wine was so intense that, till morning, he did not regain consciousness. ਬੀਤੀ ਰੈਨਿ ਭਯੋ ਉਜਿਯਾਰੋ ॥ ਤਨ ਮਨ ਅਪਨੇ ਆਪ ਸੰਭਾਰੋ ॥੮॥ When the night had lapsed and the day broke, he managed to control his mind and body.(8) ਹਾਥ ਜਾਇ ਆਸਨ ਪਰ ਪਰਿਯੋ ॥ ਚੌਕਿ ਬਚਨ ਤਬ ਮੂੜ ਉਚਰਿਯੋ ॥ When his hand fell over his bed, the <banned word filter activated> thought over, ਨਿਕਟ ਆਪਨੋ ਦੂਤ ਬੁਲਾਯੋ ॥ ਤਿਨ ਕਹਿ ਭੇਦ ਸਕਲ ਸਮੁਝਾਯੋ ॥੯॥ And called over his emissary, who on query made him to understand thus,(9) ਦੋਹਰਾ ॥ Dohira ਮਤ ਭਏ ਤੁਮ ਮਦ ਭਏ ਸਕਿਯੋ ਕਛੂ ਨਹਿ ਪਾਇ ॥ ‘You were totally under intoxication and would not remember. ਐਸੇ ਕਰੈ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰ ਵਹੁ ਸਕੈ ਮੂੜ ਨਹਿ ਪਾਇ ॥ Such Chritars could not be discerned by that idiotic and under the ਮਮ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦ ਤੁਮਰੇ ਸਦਨ ਆਯੋ ਮੋਹਨ ਰਾਇ ॥੧੦॥ ‘Mohan Raae, on my persuasion, had come to your house.(10) ਚੌਪਈ ॥ Chaupaee ਮੋਹਨ ਤੁਮ ਕੋ ਅਧਿਕ ਰਿਝਾਯੋ ॥ ਭਾਂਤਿ ਭਾਂਤਿ ਕਰਿ ਭਾਵ ਲਡਾਯੋ ॥ ‘Mohan gave you pleasure by indulging in various gesticulations. ਤਬ ਤੁਮ ਕਛੁ ਸੰਕਾ ਨ ਬਿਚਾਰੀ ॥ ਭੂਖਨ ਬਸਤ੍ਰ ਪਾਗ ਦੈ ਡਾਰੀ ॥੧੧॥ ‘You were never in doubt and you gave him all your ornaments, the clothes and the turban.(11) ਤਾ ਸੋ ਅਧਿਕ ਕੇਲ ਤੈ ਕੀਨੋ ॥ ਭਾਂਤਿ ਭਾਂਤਿ ਤਾ ਕੌ ਰਸ ਲੀਨੋ ॥ ‘You made love with him lavishly, ਬੀਤੀ ਰੈਨਿ ਪ੍ਰਾਤ ਜਬ ਭਯੋ ॥ ਤਬ ਤੁਮ ਤਾਹਿ ਬਿਦਾ ਕਰਿ ਦਯੋ ॥੧੨॥ and when the day broke you bade him good-bye.(12) ਤਬ ਤੇ ਅਧਿਕ ਮਤ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਸੋਯੋ ॥ ਪਰੇ ਪਰੇ ਆਧੋ ਦਿਨ ਖੋਯੋ ॥ ‘Since, then, you have been sleeping, nonchalantly, and half the day has gone by. ਮਿਟਿ ਮਦ ਗਯੋ ਜਬੈ ਸੁਧ ਪਾਈ ॥ ਤਬ ਮੋ ਕੌ ਤੈ ਲਯੋ ਬੁਲਾਈ ॥੧੩॥ When the effect ofthe intoxication wore off, you called me over.’(13) ਯਹ ਸੁਨਿ ਬਾਤ ਰੀਝਿ ਜੜ ਗਯੋ ॥ ਛੋਰਿ ਭੰਡਾਰ ਅਧਿਕ ਧਨੁ ਦਯੋ ॥ The imbecile was appeased on learning this and, from his treasure, gave him lot of riches. ਭੇਦ ਅਭੇਦ ਕਛੁ ਨੈਕੁ ਨ ਚੀਨੋ ॥ ਲੂਟ੍ਯੋ ਹੁਤੋ ਲੂਟਿ ਧਨੁ ਲੀਨੋ ॥੧੪॥ He did not distinguish between the truth and deception and squandered his wealth.(14) ਯਹ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰ ਵਹ ਨਿਤਿ ਬਨਾਵੈ ॥ ਮਦਰੋ ਪ੍ਯਾਇ ਅਧਿਕ ਤਿਹ ਸ੍ਵਾਵੈ ॥ Now (the emissary) set off on this design everyday, and put Beg into sleep with excessive wine. ਸੁਧਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਭਯੋ ਤਾਹਿ ਜਬ ਜਾਨੈ ॥ ਲੇਤ ਉਤਾਰਿ ਜੁ ਕਛੁ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਨੈ ॥੧੫॥ When he would realize he was in deep slumber, he would do whatever he liked.(15) ਦੋਹਰਾ ॥ Dohira ਮਦਰੋ ਅਧਿਕ ਪਿਵਾਇ ਕੈ ਮੂੰਡ ਮੂੰਡ ਲੈ ਜਾਇ ॥੧੬॥ influence of wine got his head shaved off (lost all his wealth).(l6)(1) ਇਤਿ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰ ਪਖ੍ਯਾਨੇ ਪੁਰਖ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰੇ ਮੰਤ੍ਰੀ ਭੂਪ ਸੰਬਾਦੇ ਇਕ ਸੌ ਪਾਚ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰ ਸਮਾਪਤਮ ਸਤੁ ਸੁਭਮ ਸਤੁ ॥੧੦੫॥੧੯੬੨॥ਅਫਜੂੰ॥ 105th Parable of Auspicious Chritars Conversation of the Raja and the Minister, Completed With Benediction.

  7. Rotherham grooming gang: Man who indecently assaulted young girls jailed for 18 years Mohammed Ahsan selected his victims ‘because of their vulnerability,’ say investigators https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/rotherham-grooming-gang-trial-mohammed-ahsan-jailed-operation-stovewood-a9113606.html
  8. This is eye opening. Ex Scotland Yard police man Jon Wedger (who did 27 years service) exposes how high ranking police officers and politicians derail investigations into organised pedo rings, and try and intimidate people who persist in confronting these things. It's interesting to note how he mentions one of the hotbeds of such abuse being Southall, which most of us will know has a sizeable Sikh population. Sadly, we still get the odd dimwitted, cowardly apna (and apnee) who resent Sikhs who have been trying to combat the long-standing phenomena of the targeted grooming of people in our own community. Often they suggest that the phenomena is exaggerated, or that confronting leads to 'community tensions' (which their cowardly nature seems to make them petrified of?). Well, here we seem to have an informed, experienced perspective from outside of our community. The indifference of the police, social services and political class Jon Wedger alludes to here, echoes the sentiments of many in the Sikh community who've been trying to deal with this, or who have approached the establishment for help in dealing with their own family issues in this department. I've only seen the first hour yet, but I'd like to salute all those people who've been trying to confront and deal with this issue (sometimes for decades) in the face of so much obfuscation by people in positions of power. Keep it up, and all these efforts ARE bearing fruit as awareness IS increasing, despite all the attempts to malign people and cover up. Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

    self esteem

    hi i think a lot of the issues that periodically come up on this site have to do with low self esteem. what is self esteem? how you think of yourself, how you value yourself, how much love and respect you have for yourself. what is low self esteem? when you look down on yourself, you base on your opinion of yourself on how others view you, you look for validation and approval from others. what causes low self esteem? depending on external influences to understand and feel good about yourself. what is the cure to low esteem? to love, respect and value yourself. this is not the same as arrogance or pride. it's a sense of self security. don't base how you feel about yourself on the opinions, feelings or reactions of others. in Sikhi, no one is high or low ("uttam neech nah koi"). Only God is above. Therefore, you don't have to look up or down on anyone.
  10. This is just unreal. It claims that a member of the council might have helped broker a deal with the police to protect a paedo relative! And then people try and deny Sikh claims that the establishment are purposefully playing down or denying Sikh girls being targeted by such groomers. Jahangir Akhtar Miss Akhtar's father is Jahangir Akhtar, who quit as deputy leader of the council in 2013 and lost his seat on the council the following year. His resignation followed claims he helped broker a deal with police involving one of his relatives. The relative - gang ringleader Arshid 'Mad Ash' Hussain - was said to have agreed to hand a missing 14-year-old girl to officers at a petrol station after receiving an assurance that he would not be prosecuted. Jahangir Akhtar's resignation followed claims he helped broker a deal with police involving one of his relatives, gang ringleader Arshid Hussain (pictured) An independent inquiry led by Professor Alexis Jay found an estimated 1,400 Rotherham girls were targeted for sexual abuse by organised gangs of mostly British Pakistani men over 16 years. Four brothers who were jailed for a total of 98 years in 2016 after being convicted of 53 child sex offences against 16 girls - Arshid, Basharat, Bannaras and Sageer Hussain - are related to the Akhtars. Abuse victims helped by Rise voiced concern about the appointment. One woman, who was helped by the charity along with her sister, and who gave evidence against the Hussain brothers, said: 'I'm staggered that the charity and council didn't recognise that putting Jahangir Akhtar's daughter in that role would create a potential conflict of interest.' 'What sort of a signal does that send out to CSE survivors? How are we supposed to have any confidence that the authorities in Rotherham have learnt from the past?' The woman said Miss Akhtar's work for the charity could have given her access to information about girls and women who were groomed and sexually exploited by one or more of her relatives or their associates. Rise is believed to have informed Rotherham council of Miss Akhtar's appointment but the local authority is thought to have reported no concerns. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6811673/Daughter-councillor-implicated-Rotherham-scandal-helps-run-support-service-victims.html

  13. I just read the RASE report and I think that not only should every Sikh in the UK read it, those in other western diaspora communities (i.e. Canada and the US) should read it too, so they can be aware of such things taking place in their own countries of residence and also be informed about the persistent inaction by English authorities in dealing with this matter over decades. The link below will take you to a site from which you can request your own copy via email (for free). Here's a taste: http://smartcentreproject.co.uk/rase-report/
  14. I don't understand this one. Are there really desi men from other parts of the UK traveling to Birmingham to hook up with underage girls of the panth? I sure wish SYUK the best. If you remember I said that a big problem for Sikhi as well as other faiths is that women are leaving in droves. This doesn't help that all these desi pedophiles are swarming to Punjabi communities for their disgusting fetish! https://www.youtube.com/embed/CZRENFl9m1k

  16. They are going to catch peadophiles in the act. Would like to know your views before and after it shows..?
  17. I watched this program today on Wednesday 20th 2018, channel 4 called 24hours in police custody. It showed a young Asian woman that had been raped and groomed in Luton, does anyone know more about this case. Is she a SIkh woman ?
  18. Edit: Shoot...just figured out Jagraj Singh Ji died not quite a year ago. May he have Mukhti.
