The protests for Jat Reservation has brought Delhi and Haryana to a standstill. A situation of tension has been prevailing across the country. The people demanding reservation have burnt down many shops and buildings. The agitation has already claimed lives of more than 15 people and has left more than 150 people injured. With highways blocked and the water and milk supplies to Delhi stopped, the situation is just getting worse with every passing day. Thousands of people have been stranded on the highways coming in to Delhi, and have had to spend as many as 12 hours on the road.
Amidst the mayhem caused everywhere, a Gurudwara situated near G.T Road in Haryana has opened its doors for the stranded people. In a collective initiative taken by a group of people of Sikh community, food and shelter is being provided to people stranded on the highways. Take a look at the tweet-
Take a good look in the history of awful incidents that have happened across the world, the Sikh community has time and again come out to help those in need and proved that humanity is the biggest religion of all. There are many such incidents in the recent memory like that of a young Sikh man in New Zealand who removed his turban to save a boy and the Sikhs who set up a langar for Syrian refugees. The sikhs have never shied away from extending a helping hand. Once again, they have done something to restore one’s faith in humanity.
Meanwhile, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has appealed to all the Gurudwaras in Haryana to provide all possible help to those stuck due to the Jat agitation.
Hats off to all the Sikh Community!
