I am an Afghan Sikh refugee in Pakistan. Sikhs are discriminated in Afghanistan, no jobs, no security for life. Our women cannot move out of the houses for the fear of local Muslim men sexually abusing them. The children haven't gone to schools for years because they are bullied and beaten up. Our property and land has been forcefully confiscated by the Muslim warlords.

The Islamic government of Afghanistan doesn't bothers about religious minorities, and the biggest issue is Sikhs do not have enough money even to buy tickets and apply for visa to a safe country. And neither are they educated enough to fill up the forms related to visa, local Muslims laugh at Sikhs.

I am the only Sikh left who knows how to browse internet and write in English. Our family took the risk by crossing the border and entering into Pakistan as we thought Sikhs would be secure in Pakistan. But here in the Khyber Province of Pakistan situation is much worse, Sikhs are forced to convert to Islam. Muslims openly tell us that if you don't want to embrace Islam then each Sikh family must contribute and marry off at least one daughter who is single to a Muslim man.

We ran from Khyber to Baluchistan then entered Sindh and finally we reached Punjab. Gurdwaras in the Punjab Province are flooded with the internally displaced persons from Pakistan. Out of the four Provinces in Pakistan, Sikhs from Khyber, Baluchistan, and Sindh are suffering and hence Punjab is the place for refugees which is quite pathetic.

Not a single Sikh wishes to live in Afghanistan even for a single day, but who will help the 2000 Sikhs to move out of Afghanistan for ever?

I am a Pakistani Sikh woman, for Sikhs the situation in Pakistan is worse than Afghanistan particularly in the Pakistan Administered Kashmir which is also known as Azad Kashmir. Today not a single Sikh exists in Azad Kashmir, Sikh men have been butchered in the capital Muzaffarabad and even in Gilgit-Baltistan. Almost all of the Sikh women from there have been abducted and they are confined in the Harems of wealthy Muslim businessmen, politicians and bureaucrats in Islamabad. Some of the Sikh women have been sold to rich Arab Sheikhs from Saudi Arabia.

Pakistan has banned the international media from entering into Azad Kashmir. They only allow the media to go to the Punjab Province. You mentioned above of the Gurdwaras flooded with the IDP's of Pakistan, this is where the media is allowed to go to show the world as to how much Pakistan worries about it's religious minorities. Last year, members of the UNHCR and the members of the Sikh organisations from the West did visit the Punjab Province. But before their arrival Sikhs were handed a Scripted Application by the Pakistani authorities to be recited in front of the arriving team. Sikhs were told not to reveal the truth about Pakistani Sikhs and were threatened with terrible consequences if someone dared to do so.

In the 20 crore population of Pakistan, Sikhs number only 20,000. Our destination of peace and hope remains India but not sure if the Indian Sikh leadership will help us or not.`

My brief and superficial experience in Kashmir over 12 years ago echoes what you are saying. All the Hindus had fled Srinagar and the only Sikhs remaining was one family running a restaurant. Yet, Muslims in India have more freedom to practice their religion as they fit than in any Muslim country!

My cousin was a Indian Army Jawan, he was patrolling the Indo-Pak border when the Pakistani Army killed him and they chopped off his head and took away to Pakistan. The Indian government requested 100 times to the Pakistani government to return back his head but they denied, our family did meet the High Commissioner of Pakistan in India and requested him to return his head or else at least return back his Turban so that we can perform the Antim Sanskar of my cousin but the Pakistanis denied. Ultimately we had to conduct the Antim Sanskar without his head.

Let's not forget how our Gurus were tortured and throughout history the Sikhs were massacred by the Islamic zealots. Today the terror has spread throughout Asia, Europe, and the Americas. My blood boils when i see some foolish Sardars and Sardarnis standing in favour of Muslims.

Respected MataJi, yes you are right outsiders are not allowed to visit Azad Kashmir. Couple of years back, I had been to Pakistan but I was refused entry into Pak occupied Kashmir.

The moment our Sikh Jatha landed at the Lahore airport, Pakistani officials received us, garlanded us and they started speaking in eloquent Punjabi. We Sikhs get flattered when we hear Muslims speaking in Punjabi, we easily trust them, so was i. Apart from Lahore, we did visit Rawalpindi, and Hassan Abdal in Punjab there was no issue but when our group was leaving for Nankana Sahib, men from the Pakistani Intelligence came to us and questioned us, Why are you guys sitting silent in India? They said, why don’t you fight for a separate country, you must fight holy war against Hindus, and Christians. They told us Muslims are the brothers of Sikhs and Hindus and Christians are the enemies of the Sikhs.

Then we were told to burn India’s flag, raise anti-Hindu, anti-Hinduism slogans. They had kept the video cameras ready so that they can film us. When I protested and said as to why shall I raise slogans against my own countrymen, they said you are not a true Sardar.

They said, each year hundreds of Sikh pilgrims visit Pakistan and they all willingly burn the Indian flags and have no qualms in raising anti-Hindu slogans, you are the first Sikh not to raise the voice against India, Hindus, and Hinduism. They even told me don’t visit Pakistan anymore, we won’t grant you the visa.

These Muslims actually try to create the rift between Sikhs, Hindus, and other non-Islamic faiths. In Youtube these stupids have uploaded lots of videos in which Muslims are seen sympathizing with the Sikhs and Hindus are depicted as Monsters. We Sikhs must be vigilant against the nefarious activities of these Muslims.

There is nexus between Afghans and Pakis against the Sikh community. Afghanistan is the largest producer of addictive drugs in the world. Heroin, Marijuana, Cocaine are exported from Afghanistan to Pakistan. In Pakistan, they are packaged and then supplied to the Indian Punjab. Today, majority of the Sikh youth in Punjab are in the grip of addictive drugs which is popularly known as Chitta.

Afghans and Pakistanis are earning huge from this trade but the Sikh families are suffering a lot in the Indian Punjab. In Punjab, due to lack of money and under the influence of drugs the youth have resorted to kidnapping poor kids and then selling them off to the human trafficking agents who in turn sell these kids in the Middle East.

These little Sikh kids are used in the Camel races in Saudi Arabia. The kids are tied nude at the back of the Camels during the races in the scorching deserts. The more the kids start crying, the more the Camel runs fast. By the time the race comes to an end these kids die and then they are buried deep inside the sands.

All these troubles for the Sikh community and for Punjab started in the year 1984 when Sant Bhindrawale and his 250 men were supplied arms and ammunitions by Pakistan and were instigated to wage the war against the Indian Union. After the fall of Amritsar, Pakistan knew it well that the blame would entirely shift to the Government of India. And that’s what happened, India came under heavy criticism from it’s own people. Pakistan continued to supply arms and even heavy weapons into Punjab to destabilize India till the end of the 90’s when the militancy in Punjab was crushed by the Punjab’s top Cops. Then Pakistan resorted to a new tactic by pumping in millions of Indian fake currency notes into Punjab to ruin India’s economy. When that too failed then came the Afghan-Pak nexus of supplying Chitta into Punjab.

In the last 15-17 years people from across the border have succeeded immensely in devastating the Sikh youth. Today, Chitta runs in the blood of the Punjabi Sikh youth. Punjab which used to proud itself of sending maximum number of people to the Indian Defense Forces and also Sports today is known as the land of drug addictive youths.

For Afghans, Pakistanis, and for the entire Muslim world it’s the “Mission Accomplished”. They are happily sitting in their homelands watching the Tamasha in Punjab. But the most unfortunate thing is still the Sikh community hasn’t realized this and as the time progresses our children keep dying and our women are raped in the Islamic Republics, Sikhs are still seen standing with the Muslims without realizing as to who played the Game.

Sexual assault of Sikh girls and rape of the Sikh women by Muslim men have been going on for years. Young Sikh girls are often targeted by Muslim gangs who disguise themselves as Sikhs.

This is what the latest news is, http://dailysikhupdates.com/muslim-ma...

Its tym to create awareness to punjab's youth so that they can realize their reaponsibilities. They have to standup for improving conditions for themselves. Many people in india have a thought that politics should not be joined by good people as it will ruin their life . That's why sikhs have to struggle a lot for their basic rights. Nowadays many gurudwaras stop doing katha and most of katha parchark misguides the people. They do nt tell about our gurus ideologies to be a good sikh completely. At this tym , people of india are directionless, misguided. But on my level im trying to awre myself first, my family and locality. There is a great need of good kathawachak. As every person knows history of our guru' s , their children sacrifices but they fails to understand how they become true to hold their responsibilities. From where the thing of sacrifice came. Many people read gurbani as a task but do not try to understand that what our gurus teaches us. Most of people have no interest in gaining knowledge from gurbani and apply it to lifestyle. There is need to unite and make other to build up

Bhul chuk maaf krna ji

This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >100 is welcome to improve it.

Don't worry Just need to remember/chant word of guru if anybody not following the path of guru and seeking help from Sikhs who are trying to follow the path of guru then sikhs must help other peoples also. We must try to help these peoples (any religion any group) all around the world this is our duty as children of Guru Granth Sahib. But how 1. Sikhs from Indian union are fighting for their rights (people asks me what & why is this knife or shuri even if they know). 2. Sikhs from UK/WEST are fighting to be head(pardhan) of Gurudwara Sahibs or crying for Khalistan (but I heard Gadar party rised here therefore there is hope). 3. Others are doing whatever they can do.

Afghanistan or NW provinces of Pakistan is battle field of Great worrier S. Hari Singh ji Naluwa therefore there must be hope from roots.
