Hello All, 

I overheard a conversation that there is a planned sham marriage that will take place in the West Midlands in the near future.  

Can the somebody advise How and Who do I report this to?

Thanks in advance.

You overheard it, so as @Jacfsing2 paji says no need to get involved when you don't have the full facts. What if it turns out to be a genuine one and you ruin it for a couple?  Then the burden of guilt will be on you.

Unless you know for sure 100%, it's not best to get involved if you only heard a rumor

I'm presuming he's talking about a marriage for immigration purposes in which case I would say even if he knows for sure 100% he should keep his big nose out of it and mind his own business.  There is nothing that makes me angrier than seeing brown people that are already enjoying a comfortable life in the west going out of their way to deny another brown person the chance to live that same life. 

Let me tell you something about our grandfathers that arrived in the 1950's. The vast majority of them arrived on false Pakistani passports via Lahore and Karachi.....i.e.  Illegal.  

A little background info : After the creation of India / Pakistan a lot of Sikhs started to exercise their rights as British subjects and move to London. The British asked their friend Nehru to do something to stop this rush and the fact that Nehru and his wife hated the sight of a bearded Sikh anyway meant Nehru was only too happy to oblige. Wiithout warning, he decided to move the Indian passport office from Delhi to Bombay making it extremely difficult for a Punjabi Sikh to obtain the necessary travel document (passport). Thus, the doaba Sikhs from rural Jalandhar and Hoshiarpur decided "sod Bombay....we'll just walk across the open border into Lahore instead and get ourselves Pakistani passports".   i.e. sham passports.

Moral of the story ?    Don't be a snitch.  Sit down, make yourself a cup of tea and watch some tv. But don't be picking up the phone and snitching to the Border Agency. Don't help them in their racist game.

Jagsaw presumes wrong so keep he should big nose and long winded explanations to himself. 

Found out more. It's planned in the UK, west midlands area, between a sikh girl and a hindu boy. They plan to conduct the Anand Kaaraj and the hindu marriage ceremony.

Again who does one contact...any bit of information would be great!

Again still sounds like assumptions, unless you are 100% certain to the point of death, don't get involved, or you'll be creating confusion for everyone, especially if said Non-Sikh plays the whole, "Oh, I'm converting", "but I'm learning about Sikhi", "but I'm going through changes", b.s. they can claim an easy defense with these cliche lines, but can you protect your accusation?

Well of course you should put a stop to that. We should never tolerate anyone lying to the face of our eternal Guru ji.  

But....I do think you should in future understand the meanings of words before you place them in thread titles. In normal contexts, the term 'sham marriage' has an entirely different meaning to what you are talking about.

    • Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji didn't discriminate between satguru as their is only one same satguru for every yug.  He told us to praise, worship, meditate on the one and only satguru.  He wrote about the 24 incarnations of Vishnu and he corrected what happened actually to the 24 incarnations.  If Krishna and Vishnu were satguru, Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji would have said it in his writing about them.  Instead he wrote to say I don't praise them or think of them, I hold Mahakaal ( which translates into Vaheguru in this context as he is the destroyer of all) praise only in my mind.
    • people need to stop having WWA matches with rehits imo. 
    • This whole jathabandi nonsense has had a negative impact on Sikhi, and I wish we would do away with it.
    •   Jagsaw, I am very surprised that you consider the movement of Sikhs out of areas with substantial Sikh populations to be "progress". First of all, I thought you lived in Southall?  Or perhaps another part of West London?  If so, I find it odd that you consider it a positive thing not to live in areas such as the one that you yourself live in. Second of all, I think you are greatly overlooking just how much of a positive impact that living in an area with a substantial Sikh population can have when it comes to preserving our religion and culture.  It is foolish to discount the importance of children being able to grow up in a "community", with Gurdwaras and Khalsa Schools nearby, with peers who come from the same background, who practice the same things, speak the same language.  I credit the "ghettoization" of the Sikh community in the UK for preserving the Sikh religion and Punjabi culture despite several generations having elapsed.  The vast majority of Sikhs in the UK trace their roots in the UK to the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s.  Yet somehow, young Sikhs in the UK appear to be more religious and interested in Sikh issues than the Sikh youth in Canada or America.  Somehow, young Sikhs in the UK seem to have almost as much exposure to Punjabi language and culture as their American and Canadian counterparts whose families arrived from India in the 1980s and 1990s. In America, the vast majority of Sikhs live in cities and neighborhoods with effectively no Sikh presence.  That has an impact.  It leads to young Sikhs who grow up with little knowledge of, connection to, or regard for their religion and culture.  It leads to interfaith marriages that effectively wipe out Sikhi from families.  It cripples our ability to safeguard our way of life.  I very much doubt that young Sikhs in America in the year 2060, whose families arrived in the 1990s, will speak fluent Punjabi, go to the gurdwara, engage with their religion, and connect to Sikh political issues the way that a surprisingly large number of young Sikhs in the UK do today. 
    •   I think Malwa gets more credit for keeping Sikhi alive than it deserves.  Malwa is bigger than Majha and Doaba combined (in both land and population).  So the contributions its people have made to Sikhi in recent times is a bit distorted (I say "recent times", because before 1947, Majha and Malwa were comparable in terms of land and Sikh population).  Malwa is so much bigger that it dominates.   It is notable that even though Majha has a much smaller population than Malwa, the vast majority of young Sikhs who took up arms in the 1980s were from Majha. The Majha district (especially what is now Amritsar District and Tarn Taran District) have historically been the strongholds of Sikhi.  However, this region was the hardest hit during the dark times of the 1980s and 1990s, and it is perhaps the hardest hit today when it comes to the drug epidemic.  Sadly, the Sikh youth in Majha seem to have discarded their kesh, do not follow rehat, and have in many cases succumbed to drugs.
