Teenager held in asylum detention centre

2:50pm Saturday 7th February 2009

A MOTHER is begging officials to show "humanity" and release her teenage son from a detention centre.

Satnam Gurwara, aged 16, is being held at the secure facility at Manchester Airport.

The family, who are Sikh Afghan asylum seekers, live in Great Lever.

Satnam was detained on Tuesday when he went to report to immigration officials in Salford.

His mother, Pretepal, aged 39, said: “We escaped the Taliban in Afghanistan for our safety, only for my son to be taken from me and put into a prison.

“How would these people like it if their child was taken away from them? How would they feel? I cannot live without my son.”

Mrs Gurwara, her husband Rewandar, aged 46, their son and two daughters Jasmeen, aged 17 and Simran, aged 12, fled Afghanistan in April, 2007.

They arrived in London and applied for asylum.

Their application was rejected and they are awaiting the outcome of an appeal.

A campaign is now being launched to reunite the family and a petition is in circulation.

A meeting in support of the family is being held at the Socialist Club in Wood Street, Bolton town centre, next Wednesday at 7.30pm.

    • The Indian mainstream is scrambling around for an identity that resonates beyond their borders on an international level. They truly believe India is a sleeping giant, and should be dining at the top table. This kind of ambition does count for something, and I'm sure it will inch them forward over the next few decades, but overall the poverty, the corruption, and general sense of third-worldness won't be shaken off anytime soon.  Funnily enough, I think the sheer size of the place and the maddening diversity of languages, cultures, and faiths (albeit all of an Eastern flavour) mean an organic, gradual, and "natural" collapse isn't on the cards, unlike England which is happily and obliviously marching towards its fall. I believe Europe the continent -- and by extension the civilisation that grew from as far back as the impact of the Enlightenment -- is in its death throes. We are embarking on the journey into Decadence and decline. Europe will end before India does if things are allowed to run their natural course. If we factor a devastating regional war, perhaps nuclear, into the mix, then there's no saying what will happen.
    • Don't be fooled by the 'healthier' or 'fluoride-free' toothpastes e.g. Kingfisher. Always read the ingredients and research them. They also contain toxic chemicals and I have not found one which is completely safe. Secondly the toothbrushes themselves are not fit for purpose. The bristles are plastic which is not only an ineffective cleaning material but is a breeding ground for pathogens and biofilm formation.  It's much better to stick with Nature and Guru Ji's hukam and use Datun. It is completely safe and effective and will actually destroy pathogens. Why settle for second grade gimmicks which will only do harm?    
    • Vahiguru, shahid bhai gurbakash singh ji, i am sure he will come back as gursikh again to finish the seva he was assigned to do by guru maharaj.
    • Massive respect to Khalsa!  After two failed attempts of hunger till death and countless allegations and cursing from the  demoralised Panth, Gurbaksh Singh has finally lived up to what he promised to the Panth and Bandhi Singhs. In a way this reminds me of the ‘Chaali Mukhte’ where they later realised their mistake and returned to the Guru.        
    • Madness i tells thee its complete missionary madness. Most Hindu 's especially hindu punjabi's , muslims and christians all believe in black magic/superstitions i noticed. They have yet to come into the light they still live in backward beliefs and encouraging gullible others to join in with their pakhand. If it wasn't serious it would be hilarious but these people are determined to convert Sikhs, hindus and break up families and bring punjab into the pakhand of worshipping foreigner middle eastern blue eyed blonde hair white man and itto the Christendom sphere of geo-political influence.
