Watch your Number :Fall in Growth Rate of Sikh Population in India by 0.2%

 Watch your Number 
The President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh GK referring to the fall in growth rate of Sikh population in India by 0.2% called upon the Sikhs living in India and world over to watch their count and be careful as Sikhs are already in a microscopic minority and fall in the growth rate could be of serious consequences in the days to come for future generations.
He adds“Sikhs are a martial community and they don’t need any introduction as they are famous worldwide for their achievements in all the fields, be it – sports, army, industry, entrepreneur, business, information technology and they constitute a strong skilled work force world over, which is despite a very less number,” .
He further adds, “I am sure Sikhs would continue to do well in all the fields but when the head count matters in today’s world we must not come down from what we are now,”. He called upon the Sikhs families to identify their potential and properly manage the means of upbringing their children.  
He also called upon the Sikhs to give good education to their children so as to make them good citizens who contribute to the development of the society and country they live in.

Akshay Kumar's "SINGHGIRI Attitude" in Movie 'Singh is Bling'


Removal of inscription of the Mool Mantra from the stairs of Yogacentre Hoheluft in Hamburg,Germany

Inscription of the Mool Mantra was removed from the stairs of Yogacentre Hoheluft in Hamburg,Germany by construction workers.

Five members of the Indian Gurdwara in Hamburg were present for this process.
An Ardas ( Prayer) was made before the process started and the stone, that was burned off the stairs was respectfully processed by the members of the Gurdwara afterwards.

Yogacentre Hoheluft while conveying their apology thanked to Gurdwara members for pointing out the rule prohibiting Gurbani on floors of which  yogacentre members were not aware.
They made it very clear, that they did not mean any disrespect to the Mool Mantra or any hurt to the sentiments of  fellow Sikhs.

"On the contrary we wished for our students to be inspired and uplifted by the Mool Mantra as they entered our Yogacentre.Now we understand that this was completely inappropriate.We will not repeat this mistake.We feel the love of the Guru as much as anybody else does ".
