I would really be interested in knowing what situation could have been had it be "the other way". Muslims would have called for a jihad and probably the girl could have been killed in what we term as "honour killing".

Ideally speaking there is no problem but practically speaking Islamic practitioners in today's world happen to be the most intolerant people and they widely hold the view that covert as many people to Islam and get a sure shot ticket to heaven, and when it comes to girl getting married to other religion's guy then all hue and cry is made in the name of allah. Thats an apt example of hypocrisy which is disliked by all non-muslims, hence in that context the girl will never get approval of her society and it will make her parent's life hell.

SO IF YOU LOVE HER REALLY FORGET ABOUT MARRIAGE, don't get converted either yourself. Coz Sikhs never believe in forceful or coercive conversion.

As per my understanding Yoga can never be regarded as something "no so useful" in Sikhi and especially when one talks about it in the context of Guru Gobind Singhji and his writing Dasam Granth. It's a well known fact that Dasvein Paatshaah achieved his goal i.e of merging back to Akal Purakh Waheguru in his previous Birth and he tells us that he achieved it with with Yog Sadhana at Hemkunt through his writings in "Bacchitar Natak" .See these essential lines

ਅਬ ਮੈ ਅਪਨੀ ਕਥਾ ਬਖਾਨੋ ॥ ਤਪ ਸਾਧਤ ਜਿਹ ਬਿਧਿ ਮੁਹਿ ਆਨੋ ॥ अब मै अपनी कथा बखानो ॥ तप साधत जिह बिधि मुहि आनो ॥ Now I relate my own story as to how I was brought here, while I was absorbed in deep meditation. (here note the words "tap sadhat")

... ਤਹ ਹਮ ਅਧਿਕ ਤਪਸਿਆ ਸਾਧੀ ॥ ਮਹਾਕਾਲ ਕਾਲਿਕਾ ਅਰਾਧੀ ॥੨॥ तह हम अधिक तपसिआ साधी ॥ महाकाल कालिका अराधी ॥२॥ There I was absorbed in deep meditation on the Primal Power, the Supreme KAL

It's important to note that Yoga as a spiritual discipline practice has never been spoken against by Guru Gobind Singh. But in his this incarnation he was more inclined towards the "other way" that was through martyrdom or we can say dying for Justice. This is an ideal Kshatriya way, one finds excellent examples of such kind of lives in Japanese Samurai Zen too where deep Meditation was amalgamated with Idea "Sword way", Guruji gave us all.

Probably the lines which you quoted talks of Guru Gobind Singh's determination to walk the warrior path's in this incarnation. Let's not forget he chose another Yogi Bhai Madho Dass for his Military leadership after him who later came to be known as Banda Singh Bahadur
