    Reading East MP Rob Wilson meets the Sikh community to discuss new premises and a new school. This was no wind-up, as members of the Sikh community taught the Reading East MP the history and significance of the turban. Rob Wilson MP was given a lesson in tying a turban on Sunday, February 22 as well as discussing issues facing Sikhs in Reading. At the event, which was held at the Sikh Gurdwara in Cumberland Road, Newtown , members of the Chardi Kala Turban Academy treated Mr Wilson to a lesson in tying the turban and an explanation as to its significance and symbolism.

    The turban is an article of the Sikh faith that signifies virtues such as spirituality, courage, self-respect, honour and moral values.

    Mr Wilson was also able to talk to members of the Reading Sikh community about the search for a new location for the Gurdwara and the potential for a Sikh school in the area.

    Speaking after the event, he said: “It was an honour and privilege to experience the tying of the turban and learn about its history and importance. I also welcomed the opportunity to speak with members of Reading’s Sikh community about a range of important issues, from the Gurdwara to a new school.

    “Sikhs in Reading make an outstanding contribution to the local community and at every event I attend some of the key principles of Sikhism - hard work, generosity and a tolerance and respect for others - are plain for everyone to see.”

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!
