Sikh Shrines Lead Community Service Effort During Covid-19 Pandemic

Delhi’s Bangla Sahib Gurudwara leads the way and feeds thousands of people in need.

India’s nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak has rendered thousands of people jobless. During a crisis like this, community service has become very important. The different Sikh shrines are leading this effort. One such particular Sikh shrine is the Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, in New Delhi. 

The Bangla Sahib Gurudwara feeds about 75 thousand people everyday. Prior to the lockdown the Gurudwara used to serve around 30000 – 40000 people. The kitchen is working in two shifts to meet the demand, starting from 4am to 7pm. The Gurudwara has also purchased a new roti making machine. The kitchen consumes 1400kgs of wheat, 800 kgs of pulses, and 1200 kgs of rice daily. Government officials pick up the food from the Gurudwara and distribute it to the people in need across Delhi.

They also feed every single individual who turns up there for food. The Gurudwara is also taking all the precautions like wearing masks and using sanitisers.
