Standing up for Sikhs

Urging the President to give Ultimatum to the ISIS in Afghanistan
The Sikh place of worship in Afghanistan was attacked by the ISIS gang of murderers, leaving 25 law-abiding Sikh Citizens dead. The Sikh community, on the other hand, is at the forefront of helping people regardless of their faith, ethnicity, or culture whenever a calamity strikes a society.
 We feel their apprehensions and insecurity about living in Afghanistan, their motherland, and it is our duty as fellow humans to restore trust to them so they can live freely again in pursuit of their life, liberty, and happiness. 
 We urge the President of the United States of America to give an ultimatum to the ISIS, that they have thirty days to surrender and become good citizens or face the drones.
We urge the Government and the people of Afghanistan to conquer the hearts of the Sikhs, Hindus, Christians, and all other minorities, including Muslim minorities, by creating an environment of freedom and security and removing all the threats against them.
 The prosperity of a nation is directly dependent on the freedom of her people to live their lives freely. 
We also urge our fellow family members of faith communities, particularly Sikhs, not to hold it against Muslims. The entire Muslim world has condemned this ugly act.
The acts of ISIS are the acts of the people who do not get their religion right. Islam strictly prohibits killing any human unless it is in self-defense. Islam does not even permit suicide bombings. These acts are not the acts of Muslims, but terrorists. 
 We are pleased to highlight a few of the many charitable acts of Sikhs within the last three months, there are many more acts, but this is what we have available now, details are at http://worldmuslimcongress.org/muslims-condemn-the-attack-on-the-gurdwara-in-afghanistan/ 
 In the past, the Muslims had condemned identifying Sikhs and Hindus in Afghanistan to harass them during the Taliban take over in the early ’90s.
 The Sikh community was awarded for the exemplary model they set in dealing with the tragedy of Wisconsin – instead of anger, and they showed the way of inclusion, mercy, and prayers. Several Mayors honored five Gurdwaras in Dallas, Texas, in the 12th Annual Unity Day USA event.
 We urge fellow humans to sign the petition, and we recommend the President of the United States to take action. 
 Thank you.

15th Annual Reflections on the Holocaust and Genocides  

The purpose of this event is education, information, and activism. We hope to learn and acknowledge our failings and make a personal commitment to our share of saying, "Never Again."

15th Annual Reflections on Holocaust and Genocides
5:30 PM - 8:30 PM Sunday, January 26, 2020
Arlington Central Library, 1015 N. Quincy Street
Arlington, VA 22201

Tickets are complimentary, but donations are accepted 

We hope you will walk out of the event with a genuine feeling of being a contributor towards building a cohesive world where no human has to live in apprehension or fear of the other. 

The Jewish community has been commemorating the Holocaust event since 1953, known as Yom HaShoah in Synagogues around the world. The general public learns it by visiting the Holocaust Museums and educational institutions.

At the Center for Pluralism, we are committed to spreading knowledge of the Holocaust and Genocide through interfaith and public events, including the Annual reflections.

Organized by:

Center for Pluralism

Our format consists of four parts; Interfaith prayers, Holocaust, Genocides, Massacred and the Pledge of Peace. Silently, we will acknowledge all suffering, but physically we are limited to a few Genocides each year. 

 This year, a Holocaust survivor will share his story, followed by updated Uyghur, Rohingya, and the signs of making of Genocide in India. I urge everyone to watch the Schindler's list and Civil War movies to grasp the signs.

I believe, when we acknowledge each other's grief and participate in each other's commemoration, we connect with the humanness within ourselves and seed the relationship of understanding and caring for each other. 

There is a shameless cruelty in us, either we shy away or refuse to acknowledge the sufferings of others, worrying that it will devalue our own, or amounts to infidelity to our pain, and every community and nation has suffered through this. To all those who have endured the Holocaust, Genocides, Massacres, Ethnic Cleansing, Land Mines, Hunger, Rape, Torture, Occupation, Expulsion, and inhuman brutality, we must say, you are not alone. The least we can do in the process of healing is to acknowledge every one's pain in one voice. 


I cannot be safe if the people around me are not, and I will not have peace if people around me don't. It is in my interest to seek a peaceful world for one and all.

This is a Muslim initiative to assure fellow humans who have endured the Holocaust, Genocide, ethnic cleansing, massacres, rapes, injustice and other atrocities that we are all in this together to create a better world. Tikkun Olam is our sacred duty.
