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.

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

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.

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.
