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.

    • Heretic or a Turk. Both are repulsive. The heretic is an internal threat where as the Turk is external. Whether or not he's insulted the Gurus (as of yet), is not the issue. It's the fact that he's Turk-Beeraj.
    • I do not believe in an absolute morality, dharam is not the same for each and every individual. This is not to say that dharam does not exist, only that it doesn't exist in a monolithic form.  This concept is reflected very well in the life of the Mahapurakh Sant Baba Thakur Singh, 14th jathedar of Damdami Taksaal. Babaji was a strict vegetarian like all members of Taksaal, so for him eating meat was a great sin. However when he visited the chaunis (encampments) of Nihang Singhs around Chowk Mehta he would often bring offerings of goats to be jhatkaa'd by the nihangs and later consumed. Because eating meat was not a great paap for them as it was for babaji, rather it was their tradition and he respected that the role they were given by the Almighty was different from his own.  Satguru's Hukam affects each person differently.  Eastern dharams tend not to impose moral codes on the whole of humankind, as though such codes apply to everybody. Yes there are certain basic guiding principles of human morality - don't murder, don't rape, but most sane people don't really need to be told not to do these things by a religion because they feel an inherent revulsion towards them. However beyond this things can get quite flexible. Some people are meant to be householders and provide for a family, whilst others are meant to be celibates and devote their lives and all their energy to Akaal Purakh and Seva of the Panth. If God creates someone with the intention that they will become a warrior, battle becomes dharam for this person, a righteous deed. If however God creates a man and by his hukam determines that this man is to be peaceful saint, battle is adharam for him, not righteous. This is why different sampardas/jathebandiaan exist in Sikhi. Guru Ji is not/was not anti-samparda or anti-jathebandi, if they were, they wouldn't have created or blessed so many of them themselves. I don't know if what I'm saying is right, but this is the conclusion I have arrived at from my study of Sikhi. Others will have arrived at different conclusions, and good thing too -  Sikhi is a garden full of many diverse flowers.  I do not believe Guru Ji aspired to make all Sikhs, or all people,  identical in their religious outlook and practice. 
    • So you think that Sikhs and Muslims need to remain bitter enemies for as long as this world exists?   And because of 84 do we also need to become eternal enemies of the Hindus forever and ever?   Yesterday Hindus were our friends but they ended up knifing us in the back. And Yesterday's enemies can become strategic allies of today. Try to see the bigger picture.
