A report by a charity called the Sikh Meditation and Rehabilitation Team has revealedsystematic exploitation of Sikh girls in Britain by Muslim gangs which has been going on for decades.

The report, backed by the Labour Party, expressed clearly that it was not intended to constitute a “witch-hunt against any individual, community, or culture of faith”.

The study identified predominantly Pakistani men as the abusers, with cases going back as far as the 1960s. According to the study, the girls were groomed by “fashionably-dressed adult Pakistani men travelling in flamboyant vehicles to predominantly Sikh dominated areas and schools”.

The young Sikh women would then be passed around members of the perpetrator’s family and community after being groomed.

The study goes on to suggest that British police ‘recklessly ignored’ reports of this occurring due to ‘political correctness’.

“Over the course of three decades, Sikh community leaders in the West Midlands repeatedly assert that when families or community representatives contacted the police regarding the abuse of children, their information was consistently met with disinterest and their claims met by inaction,” says the report.

“With the emergence of multiple similar cases across the UK,” it continues, “the perceived failure to act has now been attributed to the ‘political correctness’ that inhibited authorities and agencies from addressing the racial and cultural dimensions understood as causative factors behind the abuse.”

Labour MP Sarah Champion has since called for an independent investigation to take place into these events.

“We need to speak of the abuse of Sikh girls to take it out of the shadows and make sure the authorities take it seriously,” said Champion, “there needs to be a full investigation into the systematic abuse of Sikh girls”.
