    Saffajang Singh - Panthic Weekly Staff

    Amritsar Sahib (KP) - Gyani Joginder Singh Vedanti, Jathedar of Sri Akal Takhat Sahib and Bibi Jagir Kaur, President of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee have appealed to the Sikh Sangat worldwide to join in efforts to help the victims of the recent earthquake which shook many parts of India and Pakistan.

    In a statement issued at Sri Akaal Takhat Sahib, Gyani Joginder Singh appealed that humanitarian aid to the victims of this earthquake should be delivered by the Sikhs in masses. Bibi Jagir Kaur also announced that the SGPC would be sending essential commodities to the affected areas to help those in need very soon. She appealed the people to extend all possible help to the victims.

    The earthquake which measured around 7.6 took away thousands of lives away. Affected areas included Sri Amritsar Sahib, Jammu and Kashmir and its shocks were also felt as far as New Delhi.

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!
