Sikh Relief Dastaar Camp in Ludhiana
DASTAAR - REPRESENTS OUR CROWN, PRIDE, RESPECT & HONOUR *
It is with great sadness that the values of years gone by are being lost and replaced daily, with incidents of sexual harassment, rape and alcohol fuelled crimes. In-fighting between Sikhs themselves, also results in tarnishing these values. We need to make a stand and say ENOUGH and return to these core values.
Sikh Relief Inspiring sikhs in Rajasthan
The Sikh Relief Team In Rajasthan, in the District of Hanumangarh, took to the streets today as part of a Dastaar (Turban) Awareness March. Hundreds of young Sikhs took part wearing colourful, vivid, beautiful Dastaars, in many styles, and came in large numbers on Motorcycles, Jeeps, and Cars to join in.
This photo speaks a thousand words, showing the Sikh Youth joining together as One, supporting the importance of the Dastaar. This is a great thing to see, as many young Sikhs are moving away from Sikhi, whereas these Sikhs are taking action and working together to encourage them to tie a Dastaar, in an attempt to inspire the Sikh Youth of today to adorn this beautiful Crown.
Sikh Relief will be undertaking many more projects in the coming months, such as this, in order to inspire and motivate the youth, and for the betterment of the Sikh Nation.
