Sikh girl Mandeep Kaur, who was being pressurized by two youth and was studying in the Islamic University of Science & Technology (IUST), has been honored by the senior Sikh leadership of DSGMC (Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee).
The Sikh leaders went to Tral on July 13th, 2018 to meet the Sikh girl who as being pressurized to convert to Islam and when resisted was roughed up.
Sikh girl Mandeep Kaur has been offered the job of ‘Dharm Pracharak’ or ‘Faith promoter’ by Sikh leaders and considering the problems she is facing at IUST, DSGMC has decided to sponsor her distance education program.
The Sikh leaders also met J&K Governor NN Vohra and requested him to take action against the Vice Chancellor of the IUST who brushed aside the harassment complaint of the Sikh girl, Manjinder Singh Sirsa informed in a statement on social media. He also shared pictures of meetings.
Rights of Sikhs who migrated from Pakistan occupied Jammu and Kashmir were also taken up.
Mandeep was attacked by two masked men riding a motorcycle at the Tral bus stand in Kashmir on 2nd July.
The Sikh girl was also roughed up and there was also an attempt to stab her but after a brief stay at the hospital, she has been discharged. Mandeep Kaur’s successful thwarting of forced conversion bid is being commended and it is hoped that she will continue to inspire other minorities in Kashmir and entire India to stand against forced conversion attempts.
