    These site's has been mentioned before but I think its good that Sikh youths and adults alike are reminded of them again.


    Why I Chose Sikhism

    "Sikhism is a beautiful religion that offers a life of peace, meaning and divine bliss. Sikhism is the only faith which shows the path to realisation of Akaal (timeless god). Due to a lack of education and awareness in recent years however, so many of our youth are being deprived of a rich and amazing spiritual heritage. Seeing our lack of education, various groups have made us their prime targets and an ever increasing segment of our community has been lost to a very powerful and deceitful force. This website is dedicated to the prevention of the systematic coercion, manipulation and abuse that has been targeted towards our sisters in the Sikh community in recent years.

    [​IMG] A Muslim WomanCertain Islamic Groups, among others, have specifically targeted Sikh girls for conversion through all possible methods. Knowing little to nothing about the principles of tolerance, acceptance and pluralism, these forces have one single mission mind: The organised mass conversion of all non-Muslims through any means.

    This website attempts to show the beauty which Sikhism offers and also a glimpse into the reality of conversion away from Sikhism due to false and treacherous methods. We hope to address issues of sexual, physical, mental and emotional abuse. The first step towards putting an end to this problem is raising awareness of exactly how vicious and destructive this force has been to our community.

    This website also focuses on why people chose to stay in the Sikh community, many stories on the beauty of Sikhism, and also how the Sikh faith has helped many people cope with such tremendous confusion, pain and loss. Sikhism is an amazing and magnificent treasure: ignorance should no longer deprive our youth of its beauty.

    The makers of this website do not intend to slander Islam in any shape or form. There are a variety of facts from the Koran and Islamic history along with Sikh history and Sikh scriptures. The content on this site has been filtered to avoid personal opinions. Our only hope is to bring awareness and education to the community about a very serious issue. We hope the viewers can make their own objective judgments."

    "Personal Stories

    [​IMG]

    Muslims and Conversion
    Eternal Regret - This is the story of a Sikh girl who was tricked into converting to Islam for "love." She learnt her lesson the hard way. This site has been made so that this doesn't happen to anyone else.

    Regrets.... I Have Many - A most touching poem written by a girl who was taken to Pakistan after being manipulated into a relationship with a Muslim youth. The contrast between her previous lifestyle and her current style is so stark that it brings tears to my eyes.

    Wow, What a Beautiful Faith - Born into a family that cared little about religion, this youth was influenced at an early age by his Muslim classmates. Fortunately, he soon attended Sikh youth camps, read about Sikh philosophy and beliefs and quickly developed a deep love for Sikhism

    New husband held in burning of teen bride - They'd met on the Internet and were married only 10 days when the 18-year-old bride showed up at her family's house in Rochester Hills and shared a terrible secret. Her chest and back were covered with at least 20 cigarette burns -- inflicted by her new husband.


    First Experiences With Sikhism

    Inspiration through Sangat - This story details the life of an average, typical Punjabi youth who was inspired by Gursikhs into turning away from his negative crowd and towards Sangat.

    True Happiness - A Story of a girl who went through many ups and downs in her life until she found Sikhism. The theme of finding true happiness instead of false, temporary happiness is hilighted.

    Sudden Change - A story of a teenage girl who was always caught up in the wrong crowd at school until she found Gurbani. After reading Sukhmanee Sahib, she instantly fell in love with Sangat and Sikhism.

    Nothing Like Gurmat - A devout Christian female who was drawn towards Sikhism during her early years. After wandering all around the world in search of spiritual fulfillment, she found everything she was searching for in Gurmat.

    Peace at Last - The story of a youth who like many others, was deprived of Sikhi by ignorance even though he was born into a Sikh family. After continuously going down the wrong path, this youth eventually realized that peace was only possible through one way: Accepting the will of god.

    Growth Through Sangat - A typical teenage girl outlines how fortunate and lucky she was for having found the sangat of true Gursikhs. Abandoning hollow pursuits, she eventually became a true Sikh herself.

    Instant Love - This is a story of yet another youth who was deprived of Sikhi until eventually he was finally exposed and became addicted. His love for keertan and Sangat helped instantly overcome many of his weaknesses and forced him to become a Sikh."
