Sunderland Sikh Association Disrespect Guru Ji

The UK Sikh Community has made contact with Sunderland Sikh Association in regards to them organising an Anand Karaj where the saroop of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji was taken to a Reception Hall. This was broadcasted on 14th October 2006 on Sky Digital Channel RAJ TV.

The General Secretary Manjeet S Cheema admitted that Sunderland Sikh Association organised the Anand Karaj and Granthi Narayan Singh was a representative from the Gurdwara. The committee has no remorse for its actions or the hurt they have cause to the Sikh Community.

Furthermore this Gurdwara has an adjoining Community Centre where parties and receptions are held allowing meat, alcohol and tobacco into the Gurdwara complex.

This is a prime example of the State of our Gurdwaras, where Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and Gurdwara properties are seen as mere objects that can generate money and allow egoistical and corrupt members of the Sikh Community to assign upon them selves titles like Pardhan (head of a Sikh Gurdwara).

The UK Sikh Community is urged to contact the committee of Sunderland Sikh Association to highlight concerns about taking the saroop of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji to reception halls and allowing meat, alcohol and tobacco into the Gurdwara Complex. Please remember that you are representing the Khalsa Panth when discussing these issues with Sunderland Sikh Association committee, refrain from confrontational or bad language:

Working together the UK Sikh Community will uphold Sikh Rehit Maryada and respect for Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
