Hundreds gathered at the Gurdwara to celebrate the safe return of a Sikh girl who had earlier failed to return home from college. Events which took place after her disappearance caused the police to take her into protective custody up until her voluntary return to her family.The family ordeal ended when the girl was returned to the family home . She was still wearing her five ‘K’s - a mark that she is an Amritdahari Sikh, her long hair covered by a ‘keski’.The family is delighted that their daughter has returned home safe and well. They held Sukhmani Sahib prayers at Gurdwara on Sunday 8th July.The police confirmed that the girl expressed a wish to go home and they assisted with the process, returning her to her family home on Thursday July 5.The girl's father thanked the congregation for all their support and prayers through this arduous time for the family. He said on Sunday “Your prayers have retuned our daughter to us; I am truly grateful to you all. I am humbled by the blessings of Guru Ji, in our time of need He has given us the strength, strength to accept His will – I humbly pray that he does not impose His will on us”.“She wants us to tell the truth, she feels this may save another person making the mistake she made”.

“A Punjabi paper wrongly published that our daughter had run away with a Muslim and married him. This caused us a lot of pain. But the support outweighed this lie; the entire community shared and felt our pain”.“I received a father's day card from my daughter; this gave me hope and today my she is by my side.  Waheguru has been kind to me, my honour has been retuned to me”.All three of his daughters recited Keertan, Ardass (prayers) was said for the safe return of this young girl, along with prayers to Waheguru for all the other children who had left home, for their safe return to their families.“We have heard the girls recite keertan. These parents are blessed to have daughters that are so talented. Today we have every reason to celebrate the return of the girl. I pray that all the other girls who have left home too are blessed and return home to the unfortunate parents who are suffering a heart wrenching ordeal” said Mr Singh the Gurdwara Secretary.“This has been a difficult and challenging time, but one that should allow us to reflect on the role of Gurdwaras. We should stop concentrating on the size of the Gurdwaras as our wealth; instead we should invest in our younger generations”. Ajab Singh Garcha said “We have reason to celebrate, this young girl retuning home proves that Gurbaani has immense power, we knew that a child that has recited Gurbaani can never leave her faith”. Guru Granth Sahib is the final message from (GOD} Waheguru, the power of Gurbaani is immense, Gurbaani gives a direct message to all of humanity. A message that we should encourage others to listen to, once we listen to Gurbaani, we do not have any threats or gaps, all faiths become one”.The girl's father had the courage to go to the community when his daughter disappeared, this was an extremely difficult decision, but one that has allowed an open an honest debate, equally one that has ultimately helped bring his daughter home safe and well.
