    Huddersfield Sikh community leader Bakhshish Singh Bhullar dies

    by Andrew Hirst


    One of the founding members of Huddersfield’s Sikh community has died.

    Bakhshish Singh Bhullar, 88, came to England from India in 1952 and began his business career as a door-to-door salesman, selling groceries and live poultry.

    From this grew the first Bhullar Brothers grocery shop in Springwood.

    Mr Bhullar set up in business with his brothers Sohan and Mohan and these brothers then went on to develop the Bhullar Brothers chain. Bakhshish then opened one of the first Indian drapery shops in Huddersfield.

    He became the founder president of the Sikh Temple in 1963.

    Mr Bhullar’s funeral will take place tomorrow at 9.30am at the Guru Nanak Gurdwara temple at Prospect Street, Huddersfield, followed by cremation at 11.15am at Parkwood Crematorium, Park Road Elland.

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!
