Muktsar, March 4

In honour of Sikhs who rescued Muslims during riots in north-east Delhi, a Muslim boy tied a turban for his wedding in Gidderbaha recently. Not just the groom, Abdul Hakeem, a resident of Fatehgarh Sahib’s Panjoli village, some of his friends, too, tied the turban for the March 1 wedding.

Abdul’s father-in-law Saleem Khan told The Tribune: “My son-in-law has given a message of communal harmony. A true Muslim is identified not only by his cap, but also by his honesty. In the same vein, a true Sikh’s identity is not only his turban, but also his Gursikhi.”

He said his son-in-law won the hearts of everyone present at the wedding. “People are still congratulating me, as it was one-of-a-kind gesture. Abdul had told us in advance that he would sport a turban in the honour of Sikhs who rescued Muslims in Delhi, and give the message of communal harmony. We were happy with his decision.”

A Gidderbaha resident said, “The bond among people from all communities should remain intact. We must confront them by setting an example of communal harmony, as Abdul has done.”
