Kurds abandoned after fighting ISIS


Recommended Posts

Interesting stuff posted by Ranjeet above. I gather it's a complex situation with lots of actors:

But I have to reiterate, Waheguru forbid, but if it comes to some global ww3 type conflict, I don't want Sikh brothers getting slaughtered for anyone elses causes. 

We've been through enough of that already. 

On top of that (for the UK crew) if some of these Islamist groups start to do their usual thing here (and Turkey has a strategic reason and a history of supporting certain fundamentalist groups - hence a high likelihood of some captives being freed at some point - and maybe reaching here), we're going to need our peeps here. Even outside of this war scenario, if we get a serious economic crash here, with all the usual violence and racism that usually follows it, we need our fighters here, keeping our community safe. We don't want to be running around relying on others looking like weak, emasculated  b**ches. 

We'll probably be compelled to consolidate ourselves here in such a situation, it's a shame we can't do these things without extreme external stimulus.

Great photo. Our people always had a great sense of adventure, always pioneered.  That is what Sikhs of non-Jat background find hard to grasp about Sikhs from a Jat background. We all t

Interesting to see how this three turned into another caste based match. Let’s stay focus on Kurds who got abandoned and getting massacred by Turks. Maybe an example for Sikhs as well.

We did have situation back in 2011 if you recall during our summer of riots.

The community was very quick to galvanise and organise themselves.

When there was blackberry messages about raiding Southall, there were about 300 Singh's guarding the Park Avenue gurdwara within a space of a few hours.

There were patrols up and down Southall Broadway as well as Old Southall.

Same thing was happening in Gurdwarae up in the Midlands. I remember there being a kala knocked out in a pool of blood whilst trying to attack a Gurdwara. 

The Sangat knows when and how to organise when it needs to. Don't under estimate it too much.

Yeah sure. That's why they dealt with the grooming issue so efficiently and quickly.............

Donald Trump threatens to 'drop' ISIS fighters at UK border if Britain does not take them back as he labels European allies a 'tremendous disappointment'

  • Trump launched a furious attack moments after announcing death of ISIS leader
  • He warned the US would not pay for hundreds of fighters to stay at Guantanamo
  • If Europe does not take them he said he would 'drop them right on your border'

    • plenty of brahmgiani gursikhs killed mughals and dusht on battlefields does this mean we Believe that they are not like Akal Purakh ? Sikhi's concept is that Akal is ALL things: so destroyer AND creator  where as Christian concept is God is all things good but all things Bad are of the Devil .... seems that this concept has been overlaid onto our ancestors histories to remove the 'complete/nondual' aspect  of sikhi i.e. distort what we are aiming for ..........  
    • I suppose Bhagat Ravidas Ji's heart-wrenching lamentations about caste discrimination (which later became part of Gurbani) were just a figment of his imagination?
    • What do you propose we view them as when they become the enemy again ONLY because they were nursed back to health by our side? If we keep healing them and they return to reduce our numbers thanks to our demented efforts to please God knows who, what then? It's cloud cuckoo-land. Who fights a war to WIN with such a horribly confused philosophy hanging over their heads?   Too late for this now. My cynical self suspects this to be revisionisim to save face or rectify centuries of damaging parchaar that has had the opposite affect of what was intended. NOT ONE giani or kathavachak has EVER contextualised Bhai Kanaiya's escapades on the battlefield by discussing his martial prowess. The sakhi has always been employed as a tool to illustrate compassion and fairness. If we suddenly start hearing about how Bhai Sahib cut off Mughal limbs and heads one moment, and then provided water to dying Mughals a few minutes later, we'll become an even bigger laughing stock than we already are.

Despite the teenager not coming from a Muslim background, professionals meant to protect her then allowed the parents of her 'husband' to foster her after she became pregnant, it revealed. One of her social workers allegedly even attended the wedding ceremony. The terrified girl – referred to as 'Anna' – was left in a state of 'domestic slavery', too scared to leave the controlling relationship for fear she would be the victim of an honour killing, she told the report's authors. Details emerged yesterday in an independent report into the treatment of five abuse victims in the West Yorkshire city over the past two decades, which found that 'children suffered abuse no child should have to experience'.  Alarmingly, it concluded that some youngsters in Bradford 'remain unprotected' from sex exploitation.   +2   Social workers in Bradford turned a blind eye when a 15-year-old grooming victim took part in an Islamic marriage to one of her abusers, the damning report revealed yesterday (stock image) The report – described by the body which commissioned it as making 'difficult and, at times, distressing reading' – began two years ago after nine men of Pakistani heritage were jailed for more than 57 years over the sexual exploitation of girls who had been in Bradford Council's care. Anna was placed in residential care as a teenager in 2002 but went missing more than 70 times, according to the report. She disclosed details of sexual abuse – including rapes – to a confidential support service for girls involved in prostitution, but nothing was passed on to police or social workers.

SHARE THIS ARTICLE Share The following year, aged 15, she told the project worker she had converted to Islam and married her older Asian 'boyfriend' in a Sharia law ceremony. The report said it appeared there had been 'collusion' with this by her social worker 'who allegedly attended the ceremony and assessed that her marriage was likely to reduce the risks incurred when Anna was missing'. Staggeringly, despite becoming pregnant, after a review Anna was formally placed with her abuser's parents as a foster child, with the family even paid a fostering allowance.   +2   The report began two years ago after nine men were jailed for more than 57 years over the sexual exploitation of girls who had been in Bradford Council's care. Pictured: Basharat Khaliq, Saeed Akhtar, Naveed Akhtar, Parvaze Ahmed, Zeeshan Ali, Fahim Iqbal, Izar Hussain, Mohammed Usman and Kieran Harris who were all jailed at Bradford Crown Court in 2019 Anna told the report's author: 'At 14 years old I was engaged to be married, taking on the role of an Islamic wife fulfilling the needs of my husband and the extended family somewhat like a maid. 'We had no similarities in race, religion or culture and I continued to be subject to domestic violence and was subject to a coercive, controlling sexual relationship with a known perpetrator. I was frightened to leave, in fear of an honour-based killing.' The report concluded: 'It is hard to understand how this decision can have been made and it resulted in Anna being entirely reliant on her abuser and his family.' Instead of protecting her from harm, the placement left her 'at greater risk and made her entirely dependent on them', it added. While there, she was subjected to 'domestic slavery' and 'sexually abused and exploited by dozens of adult males', it went on. The Bradford Partnership – which includes Bradford Council children's services and Bradford Police – has since apologised to young abuse victims who had been failed. It said a large number of defendants have been found guilty and given substantial prison sentences. The joint statement said: 'We believe that practice across all agencies is improving... but there is much more to do.'
