    I got multiple emails for this request yesterday and almost was signing the petition then i stopped. Made me think if a person doesn't want to go a GURDUARA SAHIB then why should we force or apply pressure to do so. Punjabi di ik kahawat he - TAKRE DE SARE RISHTEDAAR HUNDE HAN, meaning if a person is in power then there are a lot of people who are related to him. GARIB de rishtedaar vi saath chadd dinde han.

    When i was about to support this an inner voice stopped me !

    There is no need to be concerned over anybody not visiting a particular gurdwara, however special it is in the hearts of Sikhs. A gurdwara is not like the Kaaba in Mecca that one has to make a pligrimage to, by those of Muslim faith, or the places of pilgrimage of Hindus. Furthermore the US president is not even a Sikh.
    Nothing at all is lost, and if one is mourning over a lost photo opportunity then one should reread SGGS ji. If he wishes to visit a Gurdwara, then there are many in the US, and each is equal to Harmandir Sahib in terms of a gate to the Guru. The doors will always be open to those willing to enter humbly.
