The Sikh Awareness Society responses to the Pakistani gangs who sexually groom and target Sikh girls in the UK. Many cases have come to light in the UK and victims have stepped forward to raise awareness of this major issue.
What is the SAS?
The Sikh Awareness Society (SAS) was established in 1998 amongst growing concerns of the ‘grooming’ of our youth. In Britain today Sikh youth are still actively targeted on the basis of their religion and history. This historically linked hate-crime causes much emotional distress to the families involved with the majority of these cases ending up in abuse.
We are now regarded as a leading independent Sikh advisory board, speaking for the concerns of the Sikh Sangat. The SAS originally operated as a discreet, confidential service, providing counselling and support to the UK Sikh community.
