    CA gov attends opening of largest US Sikh temple




    The nation's largest Sikh temple is now open in San Jose following a $20 million expansion.

    Gov. Jerry Brown and San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed attended Sunday's open house of the Sikh Gurdwara-San Jose, along with clergy from other faiths. Thousands of Sikhs travelled from around Northern California for the big opening.

    The expansion includes a new prayer hall, classrooms for more than 600 children to attend religious school and apartments for temple priests and visitors.

    The San Jose Mercury News reports that Brown praised the community's success in a speech Sunday.

    Brown also vowed to seek justice for two Sikh men who were shot — one of them fatally — in the Sacramento suburb of Elk Grove last month. Police are investigating the case as a possible hate crime.

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!
