Kalgidhar Trust – Baru Sahib shared a poster of the community’s noble work on their Facebook page. It was captioned, “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.
