Whether it is the Delhi riots, the bushfires in Australia, or even providing food to the elderly during the deadly coronavirus pandemic, the Sikh community always comes forward to lend a helping hand.
The Sikh community has again come forward to support the protestors who are protesting against racism in the US in light of the recent killing of George Floyd.
In a post on Facebook by Kalgidhar Trust-Baru Sahib, it was revealed that "Pandemic or Protests – Guru ka Langar is always there."
The post read: "Pandemic or Protests – Guru ka Langar is always there
As we all know that the world is dealing with the deadly COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak. But there are few people who are risking their lives for the betterment of society. Gursikhs are one of those few people. Langar-Seva is one of the basic principles in the Sikhism. And the Sikh community across the globe is doing the same in this need of the hour.
The Gurdwara Sahib of New York, in Queens Village, has served more than 1,45,000 free meals in the last two months. Gurdwara Harmandir Sahib, Amritsar has daily served more than 100,000 people. In the latest example of selfless service, the Gurdwara Sahib of Queens Village fed a group of protestors who were there for George Floyd killing.
These Gursikhs are trying their best not to let anyone sleep empty-stomach.
They are working day and night in fighting for COVID-19 as well as global starvation.
We must feel proud of these noble souls. And we should learn from them how to work for the other selflessly. Share and Support.
