Guru Granth Sahib can be sent abroad only by air: Akal Takhat

By courtesy of Sikhnet Africa

CHANDIGARH: From now on copies of the Sikh holy book, Guru Granth Sahib, will be transported abroad only by air, and not by truck or sea route, says the Akal Takht. This marks a reversal of its 2009 decision.

There is no facility for printing copies of the holy book or 'birs' and these are exported to gurdwaras in the US, the UK and Europe. On April 24, a group of young Sikhs in Delhi had blocked a shipping container carrying 150 copies of the holy book from Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib to the Faridabad container depot, sparking a row.

African schoolboy’s view about the Sikhs

By Mukundane Ronald

I am student at Boston High School Entebbe reading for my A levels. My hobby is football.

I lost my father when I was only 5 years old. I was brought up by my single mother and was therefore by the grace of god able to finish Primary school education in 2009.
Since then I started working as a house boy with Justice Choudry during my school holidays. I found the judge very considerate man and he helped me with my school needs and school fees.
