Just about every human tragedy in the last half a decade has had a common silver lining – Sikhs community opening their doors, their hearts and Gurudwaras when the world has needed them the most.
They did the same in London after two coordinated attacks – a knife and car attack left 6 dead
Sikhs Gurdwaras across London were available to those who were affected by the attack. This ensured that Londoners stranded had someplace to go and have food to eat.
The Sikh community made sure that refugees in Syria had their daily bread, Khalsa Aid, an International Humanitarian Relief Organisation helped Syrian refugees while their counterparts in Chennai helped citizens who were left homeless because of the turbulent flood.
The spirit of helping isn’t limited to the diaspora.
Be it the Sikh man who delivered free food to the needy in Australia, or this group of people who helped distraught people standing in long queues outside the bank during demonetisation, the Sikhs have been there for anyone and everyone.
