    Chaplains from Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and Sikh communities are being sought by the Ministry of Defence.
    About 740 personnel have declared themselves to be from the four religions, but only Christian chaplains are employed by the MoD.

    Defence Minister Ivor Caplin said: "It is our aspiration to have armed forces which are representative of UK society as a whole."

    The MoD's religious advisory panel will help appoint the chaplains.

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!
