Amritsar Sahib (KP) - Gyani Joginder Singh Vedanti, Jathedar of Sri Akal Takhat Sahib and Bibi Jagir Kaur, President of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee have appealed to the Sikh Sangat worldwide to join in efforts to help the victims of the recent earthquake which shook many parts of India and Pakistan.

In a statement issued at Sri Akaal Takhat Sahib, Gyani Joginder Singh appealed that humanitarian aid to the victims of this earthquake should be delivered by the Sikhs in masses. Bibi Jagir Kaur also announced that the SGPC would be sending essential commodities to the affected areas to help those in need very soon.
