    KUALA LUMPUR, April 13 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today extended greetings to the Sikh community in conjunction with the Vaisakhi celebration.

    "In the day commemorating the founding of this religion, I would like to wish the Sikh community in Malaysia a wonderful and prosperous Vaisakhi and hope that the well-being of Malaysia and its people are in your prayers. Have a joyous Vaisakhi!" he said in his blog, Welcome to 1Malaysia!.

    He said the celebration reminded him of the tremendous value of the country's diversity.
    The Sikh community worldwide celebrates the holy festival of Vaisakhi (or Bhaisakhi) with prayers, singing and dancing, and it was no different in Malaysia, he said.
    Vaisakhi falls on the first day of the Vaisakh month in the Nanakshahi calendar, coinciding with April 13 or 14 in the Gregorian calendar. It is the most important festival in the Sikh calendar, and signifies the birth of the Khalsa.

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!
