New Delhi, September 19, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
A high level delegation led by the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) President Mr. Manjinder Singh Sirsa today met External Affairs Ministry and demanded that Government of India should take up issue of abduction of Bulbul Kaur daughter of Head Granthi of Gurudwara Panja Sahib with Pakistan Government.
Mr. Sirsa informed the Ministry that fifteen days ago, the daughter of Granthi of Gurudwara Sri Panja Sahib, Bulbaul Kaur was also abducted by two Muslim men and there is no news of her as yet despite her family‘s repetitive pleas to the police and authorities.
Her father Granthi S. Pritam Singh Ji has been seeking help with folded hands from community and leaders to save her daughter from butchery of conversion.
He said that with this abduction an impression is being sought to be created that girls of Head Granthis of prominent Sikh Gurudwara are inclined towards Muslim boys and this attempt will not be tolerated by the Sikh Community.
The Delegation apprised the Ministry that in last three months more 55 girls of minority community have been abducted, converted to Islam and then married to Muslim men and in this case it appears that same modus operandi has been followed like the case of Jagjit Kaur daughter of Head Granthi Nankana Sahib.
They urged the Ministry that this matter should be immediately taken with the Pakistan Government and permission should be given to a delegation of the DSGMC and SAD to visit Pakistan and ascertain the true facts as they feared that it is list of only 55 girls whereas in reality figure can be much more. They also want to know what is status of such girls.
Mr. Sirsa also disclosed that JP Singh Joint Secretary Incharge of Pakistan Desk in the Ministry informed them that they had summoned Pakistan High Commissioner yesterday after they were informed of the matter by him (Sirsa) and have told them to ensure return of girl in 24 hours. Now they will again seek report on the status of her return.
Mr. Sirsa announced that they will wait till tomorrow evening for return of the girl and she fails to return then a dharna will start in front of Pakistan High Commission in Delhi and it will continue for until justice is delivered.
It is worth mentioning here that last year, Jagjit Kaur, the daughter of head granthi of Gurudwara Sri Nankana Sahib faced this torture. Her family is still fighting to get her back but even the law protects the radicals and thus conversion factory runs at full pace in Pak.
They said that this is not a coincidence; this is a well-hatched conspiracy to convert the daughters of Sikh influencer families especially because Sikhs are the most courageous, humanitarian and open minded community, ready to help everyone. This is an attempt to belittle the faith and practice of Sikhism in Pakistan. Such humiliation faced by Sikh families deeply anguishes every Sikh in India and worldwide.
They urged the Government of India that steps must be taken to ensure the safety and well-being of Sikh families in Pakistan and it should voice the concerns of global Sikh community.
