Sikh español habla sobre el ataque terrorista de Barcelona. Vídeo aquí:
A native Spaniard and Amritdhari (initiated) Sikh today called for unity between the Spanish and Sikh communities, in the wake of yesterday’s terror attack in Barcelona.
Partapdev Kaur, who works as head of translations for Sikh educational organisation Basics of Sikhi, spoke out in condemnation of the attack, whilst also dispelling the commonly made mistaken association between the Sikh identity and terrorism. See the video above for her full statement. Learn more about the Sikh faith in Spanish here.
The sangat (congregation) of Barcelona Sikh Gurudwara Gurdarshan Sahib Ji (Sikh place of education and worship) also came together to condemn the attacks and offer their support to locals, stating “for anyone who is having a hard time, the Guru’s house is open to come to at any time”, offering food, water and shelter. Barcelona’s Sikh Gurudwara Gurdarshan Sahib Ji is adjacent to where the terror attacks took place, with the Carrer de l’Hospital road it is on being cordoned off by the police straight after the attacks.
Respected Sikh community figure of Barcelona Gagandeep Singh also addressed the people of Catalan in their native tongue, condemning the attack and again offering support from the local Sikh community. Both videos can be seen below.
