The British Sikh Report, (Punjabi: ਬ੍ਰਿਟਿਸ਼ ਸਿੱਖ ਰਿਪੋਰਟ) also known as the BSR, is an annual report launched in Parliament every year about Sikhs in the United Kingdom.

History[edit | edit source]

The BSR was founded by Jasvir Singh OBE in 2012 [1] and is created annually by a team of research analysts, lawyers, academics, social workers, senior consultants and managers who work on the BSR on a voluntary basis. The Editor of the report is Jagdev Singh Virdee MBE who is a renowned British statistician. [2] The report takes approximately 500 man hours and costs £30,000 to create every year. [3]

The report has been quoted in the British Parliament [4], referred to in pieces of research and white papers relating to Sikhs or faith in general, and used by public bodies, the corporate sector and third sector groups. [5]

Content[edit | edit source]

The report has focused on different subjects every over the last few years including:

  • In 2013, the report found that 95% of British Sikhs are proud of being born or living in Britain. [6]
  • In 2014, the report found that the Sikh pound is worth £7.63 billion. [7]
  • In 2015, the report found that 40% of Sikhs were undecided about how they will vote in the general election. [8]
  • In 2016, the report found that UK Sikhs donate £125 million (around Rs 935 crore) every year to charity. [9]
  • In 2017, the report found that 69% of UK Sikhs would support their son or daughter joining the Armed Forces. [10] [11]
