Solidarity With Sikh Community After Fire at Gurdwara

On 29 August 2018, the Secretary General of the MCB, Harun Khan, wrote to Mr Ravgeet Singh, Head of the Sikh Council UK to express solidarity after the Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha Gurdwara in Edinburgh was affected by a fire set on the doors and surrounding brickwork.

In the letter he wrote, “We strongly condemn this discriminatory attack on a Sikh community of the UK as much as we would condemn an attack on the Muslim community. We extend our sympathy to our Sikh brothers and sisters who have suffered in this ordeal, as do our colleagues at the Muslim Council of Scotland”.
