It breaks our heart to know that sexual abuse happens in our Gurdwaras, but we must speak up and talk about these issues.
When victims have the courage to come forward they are not being supported. Our silence empowers abusers to continue unchecked.
This Saturday, listen to the story of one Sikh family in Maryland who had the courage to speak out and support their daughter, but were not supported by their Gurdwara.
The man who sexually abused their daughter of 12 at the time, continues to serve as a Granthi and teach kirtan to children. Why are we allowing this? We must protect our children and stand up for the safety of our sangat.
