Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ke fateh
Pyare jio, the next programme in the series of Shabad Guru Smagams will
be at the Guru Nanak Gurdwara, Wakefield Road, Bradford on Sunday 7th
November from 10.30am to 1pm.
November is almost here and this month reminds us of the many horrors that
innocent sikhs faced in Delhi and many other cities in 1984. However
the recent visit to UK of Kamal Nath, highlighted how few young sikhs
know about what happened in November 1984 and the causes and
perpetrators. This is because many young sikhs have been born in the
decades after the events of 1984 to 1992.
Last year, we did a 4 part lecture series called “Understanding our Modern
Sikh History” to bridge this gap. The third lecture is the series will
be repeated which covers the episode of the Carnage in November 1984.
These programmes will be in English and Punjabi, and are especially for the
next generation of Sikh Youth who wish to develop their understanding
of modern Panthic history.
