Sikhs Launch Relief Efforts in Delhi

Several Sikh organizations have launched relief operations post the Delhi 2020 riots. During the riots, the Sikh community helped people regardless of religion to protect them against rioters. Gurdwaras in Delhi sheltered victims and provided food.

The Akal Takht Jathedar has ordered Sikhs to help all victims regardless of their faith.

Post the riots, Sikh aid organizations have launched relief plans in the worst hit area such as Bhajanpur.

Delhi Violence Relief:

“The violence that engulfed North East Delhi for the past four days is highly condemnable and unfortunate. The need of the hour is to rise above religion and work for humanity in these trying times.
Khalsa Aid India team assessed the ground situation and distributed emergency food items like milk and biscuits to the affected victims irrespective of religion, caste or class.

Our relief work is continuing in North East Delhi. We appeal everyone to practise peace and harmony.
Recognise The Whole Human Race As One.”

The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has also started to provide langar at various areas where destruction took place.

Manjinder Singh Sirsa told the media, “Some peace committees from the affected areas came to us and they went to see the gurdwaras to check the number of people they could send to there. We have already made all arrangements and Gurdwara Majnu Ka Tilla as it is very close to the riot-affected areas. We have told the representatives of the peace committees that from our side everything is ready to accommodate the victims.”
