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.

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 ".

SONS OF SARDAAR SOUNDS LIKE A SEQUEL TO THE 2012 FILM SON OF SARDAAR, BUT THE ONLY THING THE TWO FILMS WILL HAVE IN COMMON IS THE SIMILARITY OF NAME. UNLIKE THE ORIGINAL ACTION COMEDY, SONS OF SARDAAR WILL BE BASED ON A PAGE FROM THE HISTORY BOOKS AND WILL TELL THE STORY OF THE 21 SIKHS WHO FOUGHT TO DEATH IN THE 1897 BATTLE OF SARAGARHI.

DSGMC questioned :Yakub Memon is finally hanged but what about the perpetrators of 1984 Sikh’s genocide
Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) president S. Manjit Singh GK, in an open letter to the people of India said that 1993 Mumbai terror attack convict Yakub Memon is finally hanged but what about the perpetrators of 1984 Sikh’s genocide ? Leave alone putting them behind bars, they have instead been provided with plush and influential posts , given high security cover and are still dictating terms as if mocking the Sikh’s bloodshed.
“Endless fight, both on roads and in court rooms in past 31 years have brought no reprieve to the ailing Sikh community especially to the victims’ relatives, now it is up to common law abiding citizens of India to decide on the judicial as well as political system that influences the judiciary and raise a voice to change it” said Gk.
He said Mumbai terror attack in 1993 had costs 257 precious lives which was a highly deplorable incident in the history of independent India but butchering of more than ten thousand Sikhs in cold blood in 1984 was no less a heinous crime which deserved justice and taken to a logical end.
“What made the judicial system to reward capital punishment to the Mumbai terror attack convict in 22 years times but not to send a single perpetrator of Sikh genocide to gallows even after 31 years of the incident” questioned GK.
He said, in an unprecedented manner, Supreme Court judges worked overnight to expedite the Yakub Memon’s case but judicial system never gave a serious thought to punish the killers of thousands of Sikhs who were also expecting justice from the same judicial set up.
Manjinder Singh Sirsa General Secretary Of DSGMC said that Supreme Court had taken suo moto notice of Godhra incident in which around 1100 people were killed and constituted a Special Investigation Team but in case of Sikh’s genocide, SIT had been constituted but there was no whereabouts of its officials. “Why there is this disparity, why justice is not being given to Sikh victims of 1984 genocide , why the killers of Sikhs are roaming free and away from the clutches of law” questioned Sirsa.
