Call to All Concerned Sikh Youth

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa,Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh

The problems we face in our community are many. However, there are times when one is forced to TAKE A STAND.

We have recently received information about various Panjabi newspapers advertising ultrasound technologies to determine if the unborn child is a ' munda' or 'kuri.' Unfortunately this information in our community is used too often to abort the unborn baby girl, thus turning a mother's womb into a graveyard. It is time to TAKE A STAND .

We are seeking all interested Sikh Youth to send an email of interest as we are trying to find out how many people are interested to take on this issue. We have begun preliminary discussion about a plan of action. We need members of the community's support, but most importantly we need activists willing to TAKE A STAND and say 'enough is enough.'

WHO: All Concerned Sikh Youth (This is not a women's issue, this is 'our' issue!) We seek women and men's help!
WHAT: To become involved in an effort to stop the publication/distribution of this information and begin educating our community.
WHEN: Send an email ASAP to We will be coordinating a meeting in the Bay Area the week of March 13th to the 19th WHERE: The Bay Area (East Bay, South Bay, North Bay, The City, and everywhere in between)
WHY: Because WE are the next generation of Sikhs and it is our duty to end this problem
