The Sikh community has laid a strong foundation of humility and humanity. Be it the floods, the gory attack in London, the rough conditions in Syria or the celebration of Ramzan in Pakistan- the lining – Sikh community has opened their doors, their hearts, and Gurudwaras when the world has needed them the most. The long battle of Tamil Nadu farmers in Delhi is just not coming to an end, but the team has found a new ally at the national capital’s Jantar Mantar.

Bangla Sahib, a shrine known for offering refuge to anyone in need, has opened its doors for these hapless farmers. The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has decided to feed these farmers who are fighting for loan waiver and drought relief package. Bangla Sahib Gurudwara is an idyllic consummation of rich Sikh values and traditions, with an inspiration for brotherhood, spirituality and a better future. Experience divine bliss and religious revival at one of one of the most prominent Sikh Gurudwara, Bangla Sahib Gurudwara in New Delhi.

“These protesters at Jantar Mantar come from far places. Neither do they know the language nor where to go to eat. So we deliver langar food twice a day to them. We would have provided them accommodation too but they haven’t asked for that service yet,” says Manjit Singh, President of DSGMC. The religious epicentre attracts devotees from around the globe to experience tranquillity and closure to a contented lifestyle.

These farmers have been protesting for over 100 days now and are reeling under financial crisis. They have been beating themselves with flip-flops, enacting suicidal attempts and are doing a lot more to get some attention. They are here to demand Rs. 40,000-crore drought relief package, farm loan waiver and a committee to manage Cauvery. In a bid to help them during this hardship, Bangla Sahib Gurdwara decided to serve.
