    Fired by their zeal to repay a debt to the Sikhs, India's Shia community has embarked upon a mission to construct a Sikh shrine at Basra in Iraq in the honour of Sikhism founder and first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak.

    Shias have brotherly relation with us.
    often they have bombed the Jehadis to protect non Muslims from people misusing the name of Islam.
    had Hazras not helped then US would have found it dificult to win in Afghanistan.So in Iraq also sotuhern Shias did help them.
    Das wanted to say another strange thing over here,in many countries say till syria we have Shia in Majority but Sunnis rule them by oppresssion.when Shias will gain libration we may get true picture of Islam where we will find that thier percentage is more then sunnis.

    actually brother in syria its the majorityof sunni,s only the ruler shia(ismaili)was the father of hafiz ul asad (now president )not sure about asad himself but we have our holy shrines there so majority of shia,s from around the world gather to pay their tribute on chehlum (40 days from the death day of imam hussain (a.s) we have lots of students studing in damascus
     
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!
