A young woman tells her story of how she was sexually groomed at a Nagar Kirtan event in the UK. A Muslim man dressed up to appear as a Sikh with a Kara and rumal fooling the girl into thinking he’s a Sikh.
The girl was then blackmailed into being a prostitute by the man. Grooming is a major issue in the UK involving Sikh girls who fall for the trap of Muslim men.
The Sikh Helpline issued the following statement on the issue:
“If anyone approaches you and you feel unsafe please tell someone. There are many organisations, sikh charities and the police at nagar kirtans. Stand up and shout. I’d you suspect anything had happened please contact the SHL”
