    Bush greets Sikhs on Guru Nanak's Birthday

    Washington, Nov 22 (UNI): President Bush has sent warm greetings to Sikhs across America and worldwide on the 538th birth-anniversary of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism.

    The Sikh community in US is celebrating this auspicious occasion on Saturday (November 24) in their respective congregations all over the world.

    Emphasizing the concept of religious freedom, President Bush said, ''Our Nation benefits from a strong tradition of faith, and religious diversity which is an important part of our heritage. The teachings of Guru Nanak provide strength and support to thousands of Sikhs in America and millions more around the world.

    ''Their belief in God reminds us of religious freedom in our country and helps make the world a more hopeful place,'' he added.

    He praised the Sikh community by saying, ''I appreciate the Sikh community for your strong devotion to faith and family. By sharing Guru Nanak's messages of truth, contentment, compassion, humility and love, you are helping change lives.'' President Bush further added, ''Laura and I send our best wishes for a joyous occasion.''

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!
