SUPPORTING GLENWOOD'S SIKH COMMUNITY
Written on the 11 February 2019 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly and Minister for Multiculturalism Ray Williams today visited the Gurdwara Sahib Temple in Glenwood to announce $2,000 to support the Australian Sikh Association's Bhai Gurdas Ji Library.
"The Gurdwara Sahib Temple in Glenwood is a significant place of worship for our local Sikh community," Mr Conolly said.
"Our Sikh community is known for its compassionate, enterprising spirit and for its many successes."
Mr Williams said Sikhism is one of the fastest growing religions in Australia, with NSW being home to more than 30,000 practicing Sikhs.
"This funding will contribute to the printing needs of the association's Bhai Gurdas Ji Library, helping make administration of activities and services easier," Mr Williams said.
Australian Sikh Association, Director of Education, Dr Surinder Singh said the organisation was delighted to receive support from the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government.
"We serve the needs of the Sikh community and provide key services such as the Punjabi language school, community kitchen, religious education, community integration projects, and our state of the art Bhai Gurdas Ji Library," said Dr Singh.
