Obama calls off Harmandar Sahib visit

So, it’s official. Obama’s trip to Harmandar Sahib (aka The Golden Temple) is off. The White House says it is due to time constraints. “[India is an] extraordinary country and we can never do as many events as we’d like to do,” according to the White House. Needless to say, the Sikh community feels immensely disappointed at being overlooked. But following our press release sent out today, we urge YOU to put pressure on President Obama to visit Sikh Gurdwaras like Nankana Sahib and Panja Sahib in Pakistan during a visit slated for 2011. This would an ideal opportunity to highlight UNITED SIKHS’ Pakistan flood relief efforts and our work with displaced communities.
