    Akal Takht Jathedar for fighting social evils

    Moga | December 31, 2005 8:40:13 PM IST

    Akal Takht Jathedar Joginder Singh Vedanti today called upon Sikhs to launch a drive against social evils like drug abuse, liquor consumption, dowry and female foeticide.

    Addressing a gathering here, he urged the Sikh leadership to set an example by fighting all social evils.

    The Jathedar asked the leadership to take a pledge in the presence of Guru Granth Sahib that they, would never imbibe liquor, or any kind of drugs and also oppose giving of and taking dowry. He also asked the Sikh leaders to pledge to fight female foeticide.

    ''This would be the real service to the community,'' Mr Vedanti added.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
