    Stymied Sikhs still seek site

    An Indian religious group wanting to build a Sikh Temple in Hobart believes it is being discriminated against.

    Gurdwara Sahib Tasmania already has plans for a temple on vacant land at the top of Cascade Road, South Hobart.

    The council has deferred leasing or granting land, saying the preferred site would present parking and access problems for people using Wellesley Park and the nearby Badminton Centre.

    Council has agreed to look at other ways of helping, but the chairperson of the group Surinder Mahindroo says there is plenty of other land.

    "They can actually allocate a piece of land really for sustainable development of the community I strongly believe that there should be because every other religion has some sort of place except this community," she said.

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!
