Delhi Gurudwara Shelters 44 Sikhs Who Were Among Evacuated Afghans

by nishaan@magazine

With the Taliban taking over Afghanistan,  a large number of Sikhs and Hindus were evacuated from Afghanistan after Kabul fell to the Taliban in August. Amongst them were a group of 44 Afghan Sikhs who have been given shelter at a Gurdwara in west Delhi, India. Of these 44 people, 32 will be adopted by the Sobti Foundation, a New York-based philanthropist Mandeep Singh Sobti, said Kanv Bhalla, who is coordinating rehabilitation efforts.  “Thirty-two members of five families will be sheltered in the gurudwara for one or two days before they get an accommodation which will be arranged by the Sobti Foundation,” Bhalla said.
