BC Sikhs Act Now, or Regret Later

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fatheh ! _/\_

Please show your support for the Sikh youth of BC -
who are working as a collective
to avoid an election and
persuade the challenging anti-panthic committee to give the
responsibility of management at Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar to the youth.

Please go to Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar, Wood Street, Queensborough (New Westminster)


Sevadaars will be there 10am to 8pm to register you as a voter.
You must bring a valid photo ID with your current address, such as a Driver's License.

and guarantee that we do not lose this opportunity to give this seva to the SIKH YOUTH.

This could be the first Youth-Managed Gurdwara Sahib in North America.

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fatheh ! _/\_

- Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar in New Westminster has been the center of an awful political battle over the past few years, involving a court case and a looming election.

- The challenging committee wants to take ownership of the gurdwara, but their ideals are AGAINST the hukams of Guru Khalsa Panth from Sri Akaal Takhat Sahib.

- All of the gurdwara committees in BC got together and had emergency meetings about this issue. The youth took an active and front role in these meetings. All of the panthic gurdwaras have agreed to SUPPORT the youth in their effort to prevent a takeover of the Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar.

- The Sikh youth of BC - all groups of Sikhs from different jathas, organizations, etc. are working together to prevent an election, and to give the committee seva to Sikh youth through a collective sangat approach.

- If the Sikh youth had seva of managing this Gurdwara, it would be a TURNING POINT in the BC Sikh community, because it would be the FIRST YOUTH-RUN GURDWARA.

- The youth would have a fresher, open-minded outlook and would conduct the committee operations with an inclusive, gurmat-oriented, panthic, and responsible approach.

- There would be more english kathas, more youth keertans and special programs.

- Sikh organizations would have more flexibility to use Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar for camps, retreats, workshops, seminars, etc.

- If all of the Sikh community - YOU - get your family, friends, relatives to register as voters in the election in support of the panthic Sikh youth, the challenging anti-panthic committee would see no reason for having an election and would compromise with the Sikh youth.

- Then all of the involved parties could work together as a sangat and select a youth committee with responsible, hard-working, mature, and gurmat-oriented representatives to do seva for the community in managing the Gurdwara Sahib.

- The youth commitee members can still be selected. If you know of a person with seva-bhavna who is gurmat-focused and committed to the Khalsa Panth, please attend the program tomorrow and give their contact information.

- Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar is a home to the community, the court of the Guru, and also a SIKH HERITAGE SITE with roots in the Sikh community since the early 1900's. Countless ragi jathas, parcharaks, and shaheeds have attended the gurdwara sahib, and countless sangataa have attended camps, punjabi classes, keertan / tabla classes, smagams, akhand keertan programs, simran programs, anand kaarajs, shabad chaunkis, and akhand paaths at this gurdwara. It has been a part of our community for MANY DECADES - and it would be unthinkable and very sad for us to give up this opportunity.

- We are always complaining about gurdwara committees being irresponsible, unresponsive, not caring, self-absorbed, etc. but if we get involved now, we can give the full responsibility of this gurdwara sahib to the Sikh youth and show how the SANGAT with GURU JI'S KIRPA and GURU JI'S MARYADA can run the gurdwara.
