    Three men are being sought by police following an armed robbery at a Sikh temple in the south side of Glasgow.

    The men entered the temple on St Andrews Drive, Pollokshields, at 1115 BST on Sunday.

    They took a four-figure sum of cash before escaping in the direction of Shields Road and Maxwelll Drive.

    The firearm was not used during the robbery and no-one was injured but worshippers at the temple were said to be "shaken" by what happened.

    The first suspect is described as a black male, about 6ft in height, with a slim build and short dark hair.

    He was wearing dark trousers, a dark coloured thigh-length jacket, and black baseball cap.

    The second suspect is described as a black male, in his mid 20s, about 6ft in height, with a slim build.

    He had on a black and white head bandana, and dark coloured waist-length jacket.

    The third suspect is described as an Asian male, in his early 20s, between 5ft 3in and 5ft 5in tall with a stocky build.

    He was wearing black trousers and a grey hooded top with a skull and crossbones design on the back.

    Det Sgt Jim Leckie, of Strathclyde Police, said: "Worshippers were preparing the temple for the day's services at the time of the incident and were left shaken by events."

    He urged anyone in the area at the time of the robbery, or anyone with information, to contact police.

    We are being robbed while awake, says Kabeer Ji.

    ਦੁਨੀਆ ਹੁਸੀਆਰ ਬੇਦਾਰ ਜਾਗਤ ਮੁਸੀਅਤ ਹਉ ਰੇ ਭਾਈ ॥
    दुनीआ हुसीआर बेदार जागत मुसीअत हउ रे भाई ॥
    Ḏunī▫ā husī▫ār beḏār jāgaṯ musī▫aṯ ha▫o re bẖā▫ī.
    People of the world, remain awake and aware.
    Even though you are awake, you are being robbed, O Siblings of Destiny.

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!
