Dr Yaar addressed the congregation in Dari and assured to provide all necessary consular assistance to Afghan Minorities diaspora outside the country, as well as to the small minorities residing currently in Afghanistan. The Gurdwara Management honoured His Excellency and his First Secretary — Najibullah Mohajir by giving them a Siropa — The Sikh Robe of Honour.

Siropa is a term adopted from Persian sar-o-pa (head and foot) or sarapa (head to foot) meaning an honorary dress.

During his visit, Ambassador Dr Yaar thanked the congregation and spoke about the diversity and on-going reconstruction projects in Afghanistan. We were very much impressed with his humble & down to earth nature which we notice while having a customary, Afghan style, traditional tea (Kawa Cha/ Chai Sabz) with Ambassador Yaar.
