A gurdwara, said to be the first in Eastern Europe, will come up in this Polish capital as the authorities here have finally given their green signal. The proposed gurdwara has been registered as a religious institution. Respecting the religious identity of the Sikh community here, the authorities have also allowed them to wear turban and keep a kirpan.
"This is a glorious day for the Indian community in Poland," Singh Sabha chief administrative officer JJ Singh said.
"Unlike France, where the Sikh community is facing many difficulties in maintaining its identity, the Polish authorities have given us what we had asked for here. The rights of a minority community are being respected which is most gratifying," Singh told IANS.
"Now our job is to collect funds not only in Poland but from other European countries to construct a beautiful gurdwara. Incidentally, it will be the first gurdwara in Eastern Europe," he added.
For the past three years, the Singh Sabha community organisation has been using a rented house in the Warsaw suburb of Rashyn to perform religious ceremonies.
