Canadian Sikh group organises langar to promote equality

Toronto: A Sikh group in Calgary has organised a week-long langar (community kitchen) to promote equality, fight hunger and to create cross-cultural dialogue, the media reported.

On October 5, the first day, the group set up a tent at the University of Calgary and distributed free food, Metro News portal reported on Tuesday.

A lot of people see us on the streets, see us in turban and a beard but they do not see what my goal is, what my mission is,” Harman Dhillon, a group member, was quoted as saying.

According to Dhillon, the event was part of Langar Week’, an event held globally by the people of the Sikh faith.

The event is aimed at creating equality as the rich and the poor are given the same food and equal respect.

“What we tend to do, we take a tree and we start fighting over a leaf. But we do not understand what the roots are,” he said.

The group will organise langar at Mount Royal University on Thursday and City Hall on Friday.
