(Washington, DC) October 22, 2010 – The Sikh voice on the issue of whether the President should visit the Golden Temple is being heard!
In the last 24 hours, the New York Times
published articles on Sikh American concern over a possible cancellation of a visit to Darbar Sahib. We are happy to report that our colleagues at United Sikhs and the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund, along with many prominent Sikhs, were quoted.
