Sikh Coalition Receives Interfaith Tribute Award


This summer, the Interfaith Center of New York presented "The James Park Morton Interfaith Tribute" to Harpreet Singh, Director of Community Relations for the Sikh Coalition. Singh received the award in recognition of his work towards making New York a safer place to live in response to the wave of hate crimes and violence that had erupted against minorities after September 11, 2001. Others who were honored at the event included Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nina and Daniel Libeskind, Uma Mysoreakar, Ratan Barua and Ayisha Al-Adawiya. The event, which took place at the Manhattan Center, also consisted of presentations by John Whitehead and Harry Belafonte, a performance by Abdel Salaam and The Forces of Nature Dance Theater Company, a tribute to local leaders and interfaith blessings.

    • He keeps his hair and wears a pagh. 
    • Maybe because he didnt sexually abuse anyone.. Why should anyone hate him when they dont him or what the story is. Whose to say me or you are not bigger sinners then him? Hatred is a strong word Singh... is it any less then kaam or humkar?   "Let the one who is without sin strike first"
    • Well done Guest Ban jee . Excellent job, by revealing the  truths of a troll.  I had my doubts since the very beginning he stepped in, he was even told that the type of questions he asked, were not likely to be asked by sikh, upon which he said something like, he was 100 %sikh... he is/was so blinded by trying to prove wrong sikhee under the pretext of science, that, that very his unethical behavoiur, ended by revealing his true foolishness and fakeness  Shame on him...
    • “You were born with potential.
      You were born with goodness and trust.
      You were born with ideals and dreams.
      You were born with greatness.
      You were born with wings.
      You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
      You have wings (Bhakti).
      Learn to use them and fly.”     “When you look for God,
      God is in the look of your eyes
      In the thought of looking, nearer to you than your self,
      or things that have happened to you There’s no need to go outside.
      Be melting snow.
      Wash yourself of yourself. A white flower grows in the quietness.
      Let your tongue become that flower.”     “You call out, I am the lover,
      But these are mere words.
      If you see lover and Beloved as two,
      you either have double vision,
      or you can’t count.”     “Oh Beloved,
      take me.
      Liberate my soul.
      Fill me with your love and
      release me from the two worlds.
      If I set my heart on anything but you
      let fire burn me from inside.
      Oh Beloved,
      take away what I want.
      Take away what I do.
      Take away what I need.
      Take away everything
      that takes me from you”                                    RUMI
