    "According to Sikh tradition, langaars or community kitchens, offer free food to the poor and needy across north India where the religion was founded in the late 15th century."

    Is the above sentence correct: I thought langaars was for everyone (not just poor and needy).

    Langar could be in form of rice, or anyother thing natives are used to eat there. I guess, it was not, hence the fuss!

    I agree. Sikhism is universal so they should not limit the food in langar to just Indian food. Pizza and chips would be nice for once...
