India’s gurudwara to use gold amassed over 50 years for building hospitals, medical colleges
Nanded-based gurudwara Takht Sri Hazoor Sahib is one of the five ‘takhts’ of Sikhism
Leading by example of selfless service to the society, offered by religious organisations, a Sikh Gurudwara in Nanded city of Maharashtra in India has announced that it will release all its gold collected over the past five decades for the construction of hospitals and medical colleges.
Gurudwara Takht Sri Hazoor Sahib in Nanded is one of the five takhts of Sikhism. The takht’s Jathedar Sant Baba Kulwant Singh has announced the decision while sharing his thoughts on the gold amassed by the organisation.
In his video message, which is doing rounds in social media, the Jathedar is heard saying:
“We have put a lot of gold on buildings and Gurdwaras. Now we should make and prepare Gursikhs...the schools should provide excellent education and the Gursikhs should hold high positions...such that Sri Kalgidhar Patshah will be pleased seeing the Khalsa reach these positions. It is my opinion that a hospital or medical college should be built.”
In the video, he talks about the need for building educational institutions and hospitals, Hazoori Singhs have to run to Mumbai and Hyderabad when they get sick.
He is also heard saying, “There is no community who should be holding the hand of the Khalsa. Satguru ji has blessed the Khalsa with so much wealth. Whenever the world is troubled the Khalsa stands up, tying their kamarkasa, providing langar in place after place and meeting whatever needs arise”
