On Monday, May 17 former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has emerged praising the Sikh community for their constant and selfless contribution in serving people affected by the pandemic in this bad time of the COVID-19 crisis.
While promoting their COVID-19 relief initiative program called ‘Dil Se Sewa’ in a talk show on NDTV television channel, which is supported by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management. KKR’s Harbhajan said, “I’m extremely proud and thankful of the Sikh community for their selfless participation in saving people’s lives in this hour of crisis without any religious discrimination. They have their own families and kids too. That didn’t restrain them from going out and helping people. They are not doctors but working as messiahs for many. Whether someone is Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, or any other religion – it really doesn’t matter at the moment. Insaaniyat (Humanity) needs a helping hand right now, and I’m proud that’s what these Sikh brothers and sisters are focusing on.”
‘Dil Se Sewa’ initiative has been offering free ambulance service and Oxygen Langars to the people in Delhi. And through this initiative, 400 beds are installed at Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib in Pandit Pant Marg, New Delhi.
Harbhajan said that all the life lessons he learned from Gurudwaras have moulded him into a good human. Harbhajan said, “I still remember when I was just 14 or 15 years old I went for trials in Patiala along with some boys. We didn’t have a place to stay. All we knew was if there was a Gurdwara around, our problem would be taken care of”.
“The trials went on for 3-4 days and I kept crossing all the hurdles and eventually got selected. I was offered a stay at the stadium after that but I considered the Gurdwara my lucky charm and continued to stay on there. Had it not been for that Gurdwara, I wouldn’t have reached the heights of my career.” Harbhajan quoted.
Taking on to Twitter, he wrote, “Waheguru ji da Khalsa waheguru ji di fateh..Puri Sikh kom nu koti koti Pranaam Thank you @ndtv @PrannoyRoyNDTV for covering DIL SE SEVA by many Sikh organisations and individuals who are doing nothing less than DIL Se SEVA during the most difficult time we are facing..rab rakha”
