BREAKING: Over 300 Protest Release of Man Held in Luton Rape Case

LUTON, UK—Last night over 300 members of the Sikh community from all over the UK gathered at Nanak Darbar Gurdwara in Luton, UK following allegations of sexual assault that took place on a Sikh girl on Monday 28th May.

UK Sikh community has been highlighting for many years the case of grooming by Muslim men on Sikh, Hindu and White girls. This was recently bought to forefront following sentencing of 8 Muslim men from Rochdale, Manchester whom were convicted of sexual abuse of under aged young white girls.

Sikh24 has learnt that on Monday a Sikh girl was walking to pick up friends children from school when she was allegedly bundled into a car by two men. They kidnapped her and took her to the park near Dallow Road where she was raped. Sources have told Sikh24 that the attack on this Sikh Girl was captured on video and pictures.

Bedford Police force came under huge criticism last night following lack of action. The victim of this horrendous sex attack had been victim of grooming and the police had been contacted at least four times by the family but had failed to act.

Yesterday following the community meeting at Nanak Darbar Gurdwara rumors circulated that the Muslim man arrested for this crime was due to be released. The community therefore decided they would peacefully march to local police station and ask for answer as to why the police had failed to take this case seriously.

It was learned by Sikh24 reporters that the Police showed no interest in helping the Sikh community. Having failed to get timely response, the community decided they would block of one of the main dual carriageways outside Luton Police station. A sit down protest took place on main road in heart of Luton to highlight the lack of progress in cases and increased concern at grooming of teenage girls.

Later during the night, the Luton police informed the Sikh community that the release of the accused – Anan Majid Basharat, 19, from Luton was cancelled, however he could be released tomorrow following orders of the Luton Magistrates Court.

  1. An excellent turn out brothers and sisters! The Sikh community do not often make the news as they are clearly a peaceful people! It is times, such as these that Sikhs consolidate their efforts and peaceful protest against the vile scum!Your unity is truly an excellent example which many need to follow and support. Congratulations! It is clearly sad that Sikhs make headlines when something bad happens, this,and protecting their temple in the recent riots. I think it is time to highlight themselves in the media as an example of a religion, which does not oppress.i hope the young lady is safe and is doing well in her journey to overcome this vile act forced upon her.May she have the courage to heal.

    Regards and respect!!

  2. Its ridiculas that the public has to protest outside Luton police station to get them to take this seriously.

    This is a crime that demands a cutodial sentence. There’s no way he should be given bail.

    If the grooming and raping of our children is to be tackled, the law has to act with its full force.

  3. Hindu, Sikh and white girls. We English have a national identity and this should be respected by all and at all times.

    In future please: Hindu, Sikh and Christian girl, or more importantly, English girl. No offence meant, however, many English people are becoming very offended by the off-hand way we are treated and referred to.

  4. Clearly no offence took place which is why the lad was released. The police in this country is the best in the world and no criminal gets away. Clearly on this occasion the sikhs have sold out to the EDL and made up this rape story but couldnt fool the british police. Why do sikhs think they are so special


    • She was not going out the with the guy – he was blackmailing her. The guy is a local drug dealer. Please find the FACTS before you accuse people. And either way – rape is rape.

  6. [He] should get life for doing this! I bet this guy has done it before and never got caught…
