    I just found this... i was shoked....

    Sikh orphans given to Christian missionaries?

    It has come to light Sikh children who where made orphanes in 1980's handed over to christian Missionaries by Government, etc. This would have ment they converted there faith and there fore another way found to get rid of the Sikh youth loosing there sikhi, sikhi loosing its next generation.

    Taken from Tapoban.org

    This was done in order to hide evidence of the Nov 1984 carnage.I have heard of
    the recent film AMU but did not know that there was a well organized move of the
    part of the so-called Sikh leaders to give Sikh orphans to Christian
    If I recall correctly there were at least well over four hundered Sikh children
    that were brought back from the Calcutta region alone to Punjab and resettled
    among some various orphanages and some adopted by sikhs.

    Some how these
    children landed up with Mother Theresa.Credit goes to mother theresa that she
    did counter argued when representations were made to her initially by Sr Mahip
    Singh.I believe it was through some Calcutta resident Sikhs investigating the
    carnage in Bengal state that this issue came to light.They visited mother
    theresa, who confirmed many sikh children had arrived there.She also assured
    Sikhs that until they were able to take care she will look after them.The Sikhs
    offered her all the support to bring them as Sikhs and at once contatced the
    Calcutta Sikh leaders at Gurduara Barri Sikh sangat.

    The Calcutta Sikh
    leaders along with Capt Bhag Singh ji, I beleive, through Dr Mahip Singh
    informed Bhagat Puran Singh ji, who along with Mahip Singh ji at once offered
    ardasa and left shortly after for Calcutta to bring the children back to punjab
    and his care.Later some of these children were joined with their parents or
    relatives who had survived and were located.But others remained at the
    pingalwara, and among some other orphanages within Punjab.

    It was very
    clearly pointed out in the punjabi press and aslo some English media that it was
    due to a conspiracy of some of the indian government agents that these Sikh
    children were transported to a christian charity.In other words it was a
    deliberate act to loose the community its youth.

    But Khalsa Ji, the
    saddest part is all our organisations are busy chassing phantoms, NOBOSDY ever
    had the single iota of sense to say let us organise our own study into these
    massacres -state by state, town by town,and street by street, and under a
    category of other( eg those travelling on trains, buses , cars or etc) and
    establish what exactly happened, who died where and how,who are the survivors
    and how many children are involved and now accounted for.

    Instead we
    are busy chasing phantoms, argung over maryada, that has been set 50 years ago
    and still wonder if we are sikhs or jats, tarkhaans or kummiars!

    I am
    ashamed some times to be a sikh , when i think back that we could have
    abandonned countless other children because our Sikh leaders in the Punjab found
    politics more appealing.

    I am NOT ashamed to say, when I heard this
    in 1984 december, I could not eat for days , and spent days liasing with
    Christian organisations in UK to ensure the Sikh children were brought up as
    sikhs, and returned back to the Panth as soon as arrangements were completed by
    Dr Mahip Singh Ji.

    Then I had a call that a problem arose regards their
    transport back to Punjab.Unashamedly I will say, I paid for the journies of 489
    individuals.The sangat at calcutta paid for their clothes and food .Dr Mahip
    singh ji arranged for two doctors and three nurses to accompany them back,at his
    expense and got an army escort all the way back to the Punjab.

    NO Sikh
    organisation in UK was interested as they were busy shouting Khalistan or trying
    to have photo opportunities with visiting Indian leaders.

    Today my tears
    still roll out when I think of those bad days and the children.

    But it
    is very very sad that our sikh leaders are still busy shouting about a phnatom
    khalistanm fighting over maryada or something irrelevant.But NOT ONE CARE about
    the children.

    Jis kaum ne apne bache'an de kal di na sochi,

    kisse hor di kal da ki apne pale pana hai/

    Singho, this is the truth
    only in one incident.
