Sikh and interracial dating
The Sikh Guru speak directly against any form of discrimination based on race or caste or social class.
To some extent, it somewhat irritating to see that ethnicity has to be considered in any decision, it is the actual person and his or her qualities that matters; it is the virtues and values of the person that defines who they are not their color or caste or ethnic background or social class; it is the habits and passions of the person that shows us truly where they come from.

A Sikh gives (in marriage) his daughter to a Sikh and does not accept any money in exchange. (Guru Pratap Surya) The usual reason given for a Sikh and non-Sikh to get married in a gurdwara is that the Sikh wants to share the occasion with friends and family.

In order to have a Christian wedding at a Church, most Christian Churches would expect the couple to be both Christian and some even attend Church to show commitment to the faith. However, when it comes to Sikhs, it seems the media and outsiders feel it justified to criticise Sikhs for only allowing Sikhs to partake in the Sikh religious marriage ceremony in the Gurdwara.
Under the media radar, such disruptions of interfaith marriages at Sikh gurdwaras have become worryingly commonplace across Britain.

Killing a daughter or to give a daughter (in marriage) to a non-Sikh, such a person commits great offence.

One of them told a priest that, if their demands weren’t met, he would get 1,000 of his friends to come to the temple within the hour.
The police were called and eventually the couple were forced to proceed into a hurried ceremony, while the protesters watched and took pictures of them to publish online. The next weekend an interfaith wedding in Lozells, Birmingham, nearly turned into a mass brawl after protesters tried to stop it and, again, the police had to be called.
