    It is believed that people are confusing Sikhs with muslims and yeasterday morning someone tried to set Gurdwara Sahib property on fire.

    Japanese people are normally very friendly and helpful but this is an isolated incident which is infact very alarming.

    As not most of the legal Sangat dont know Japanese so its very hard to communicate with police. At the max. police has advised to another camera on the door where some tried to burn the news papers and sneak them inside the deewan hall through the locked door. I have been told that some of the carpet got burn and one side of the wall got blackened by the fire. The fire went off on its own.

    Sikhs in Japan

    There are not many Sikhs here so sangat assemble only once a month only but lately more turbaned people have started coming to the Gurdwara Sahib getting this place extra attention in the eyes of japanese people.

    We need to do a loads to ground work in this alien world where people are so less aware up about Sikhs.

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!
