Is there any manner you can take away me from that service? Thanks!

A little on the history, the Preamble to the United Nations Charter aims to regain faith in fundamental human rights, to respect obligation of sources of international law as well as to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security. And all treaties on international human rights law recall or consider “the principles proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations, recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world”. This is what Sikhi talks about. Bruhaaa United Sikhs!

Good work United Sikhs. This is the kind of coverage Sikhs need. The world can become familiar with the ambience of Sikhi through such participation.

Wish our usa based advocacy organizations learn from your work, dedication and determination.

Thanks to all those that made this happen.

United Sikhs rocks.

United Sikhs three cheers to you. You guys need to be congratulated for showcasing the Sikh community in the UN. Empowering a common man, where do we find this today….. A true embodiment of Panthic work.

Do you have a chapter in Canada? I would like to connect and volunteer my time and hours.

May the falcon bearer bless you and your team. Keep up the great legal work that you do.

Sikh ideology looks at the question of war and peace at individual, social, state, and global levels. Genuine peace is not possible when there is pain and suffering in society. In that sense, Sikh thought agrees that peace is not necessarily the absence of war.
In early 17th century, Bhai Gurdass wrote that Guru Nanak (1469 –1539), the founder of the Sikh religion “meditated and saw the whole world ablaze” (Vara(n) Bhai Gurdass). The world was at war at every level as a result of human greed, lust, violence, and lack of compassion.

Guru Nanak’s approach to reconciliation between warring factions in religious, social and political spheres was to identify the root causes, and to show the way to a harmonious way of life, which accepted and respected diversity. He brought together the essence of the (apparently diverse) religious ideologies of his time. The Sikh Holy Scripture, Guru Granth Sahib, is the embodiment of that interfaith approach.

I am so proud of you. This post has really given us the strength that you will take the cause of the Kashmiri Sikhs and Hindus to the United Nations and speak on our behalf. Please don’t forget to also include the violations against the Sikh community during 1984.

You may not know but your legal work is a relief to many minority groups in other parts of the country. There are a very few organisations that think about minorities. Don’t let anyone distract you.

May Satguruji give you all the blessings and empower you with wisdom and strength to take on cases that no one else dares to take.

Be in Chardi Kala.
