Sikh Family on Train Attacked, young Sikh Girl Stripped and Assaulted

SAVAGE ASSAULT




NEW DELHI (KP) - A Sikh family’s trip on the Muri Express from Delhi to Patna Sahib turned into a horrific nightmare after their teenage daughter and the family was assaulted by hoodlums as police authorities stood by and watched.

Such savage attacks on helpless women, children, and minorities are so frequent that they have become the shameful trademark of a country that prides itself as being the world's most populous democracy.

Trouble began for the Sikh family at the Hathras Junction Station in Uttar Pardes when a dozen young ruffians boarded the Muri Express car S-5 in which the family from Gaziabad, Patel Nagar, was traveling. The young trouble makers immediately began to harass and taunt their teenage daughter using lewd remarks.

When the Sikh family protested their offensive behavior, the young men got up and suddenly started to tear off the clothes of the young Sikh girl. The Sikh men were also attacked and severely beaten by the ruffians and their dastars (turbans) ripped off.

"The young Sikh girl's was taunted, her clothes were ripped off, but the Railway Police just stood by and watched..."

Most disturbingly, this all happened as the Government Railway Police (GRP) officials stood by and did nothing to stop the attack on the Sikh family and their teenage daughter despite desperate pleas for help.

According the official Indian Railways website, the GRP are members of the State Police and are "responsible for the maintenance of law and order and policing on the railways including running trains."


During the commotion, some of the frightened passengers attempted to stop the train by pulling on the emergency chain, but the engineers and the police ignored their requests.

According to the family the attackers exited the train at the Jalesar Road Station and then began to throw rocks and stones towards the Sikh family and in turn broke many of the windows of the train car. Again, the Railway Police did nothing to stop the perpetrators and silently stood by.

The victimized Sikh family attempted to file a complaint at the Jalesar Road Station Police officials, but no action was taken in regards to their complaint.

This is yet another one more shameful example of a failed nation that boast itself as the "world's most populous democracy", yet it cannot even enforce its own laws and provide basic protection for its very own citizens.

    I am sorry to say but Sikh Girls at least should be armed with something if not a Kirpan. No on should even dare to touch a Sikh girl.

    This problem is bigger than we all want to acknowledge. there are nor prospects for the people of India.

    Young people who have a good education/ or are rich leave India and move to UK USA Canada Aus etc..

    Some educated people who live in rich areas also stay in India, but are quickly consumed by the crimes of the govt and corruption.

    To full circle- other young people will join the police and army. life in India for many people even the educated is 'sh*t'. its a similar situation in the UK where a lot of young people are turning to crime and have no hope of employment.

    The Sikhs are a minority in India, and Sikhism gives a lot of Sikhs hope by staying positive and living in high hopes. and hence are an easy target for the disgruntled people of India.

    The real problem of India is that the people are not doing enough to lead fulfilling lives, turning to crime hate and being manipulated. This includes the police and army.

    If they did not join the police they would turn to crime drugs and alcohol.

    Devoted religious happy Sikhs are getting caught up in this such as the event above.

    Read the news feed here. Really its very shameful act and needs to be condemned and needs to taken care of.

    All concerned officials GRP etc should be held responsible be punished. But my humble submission is that this kind of acts are done by the people of any community, society or religion so we should not make it any religious/ communal issue..

    What a silly comment by the above poster! Bravery and vulnerability are a human trait that has nothing to do with a person's faith. Carrying any object will not make a lady in particular feel and safer when thugs are around.

    A pit bull terrier would do a job though!!

    This is why you should legally carry a handgun on you 24/7. Alot of us american's do. I carry my glock 27 and kirpan with me every where i go legally. Talk to your local sheriffs office if your in the usa and get a permit. Its fairly easy if you are a law abiding citizen.

    I don't know what was stupid about the post.

    A kirpan would definitely help to protect a sikh girl because dogs like those would not want to risk being harmed. Girls from other religions should carry a weapon to protect themselves.

    It will be more difficult to take a pit bull terrier with you everywhere though.

    A Sikh family are attacked. Sikhs have been targeted in UP and other states in the past and this is not about race or religion? Utter nonsense. Each Singh and Kaur should learn how to defend themselves just like the Gurus taught us. We are warriors and we will not give in to these cowards who hunt in packs!! This is why the Sikhs must stay united and strong. Pray to Waheguru. The road to Sikhi is not easy. They attack a young girl! The police will not protect Sikhs. Look they destroyed the Sri Akal Takhat and committed genocide against the Sikhs. This is the India of RSS!!

Calendar Confusion: Jathedars & Granthis 'move' Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Gurpurab Date to Next Year

The Sikh clergy did an about face of sorts in regards to the Nanakshahi Calendar when they arbitrarily declared that Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji’s upcoming Gurpurab should be celebrated on January 7th, 2015 instead of December 28th of 2014, as it coincided with December 26th Shaheedee commemorations of the Younger Sahibzadays.
