Obviously I love the Golden Temple. And I’m sure many of our readers do too. But if you don’t want to shell out £600 and a whole load of pain to visit it, you could do the next best thing and check out this tasty looking exhibition at the Brunei Gallery at SOAS, London.

The exhibition starts next week from 14th July

    Thanks for flagging this up, Sunny.

    I think there could not be a better time to have this wonderful exhibition as the racist and fascist EDL are planning to march in east London on 3rd September.

    They only have one purpose to do that – to try to divide our communities. So, it would be a good reminder to all that, in fact, as explained by Jai many times in some excellent articles, that the Golden Temple was and still is a very unifying force.

    Just to remind your readers, I attach the link to Jai’s article below.

    “… the foundation stone of the Golden Temple in Amritsar was laid by a Muslim saint upon the invitation of the Sikh Guru at the time, on land granted to the Sikhs by a Muslim emperor; the architecture of the Golden Temple itself was specifically designed to reflect a pluralistic, multi-faith ethos, open to all, and symbolising both the unity of God irrespective of what name people call their deity by and the unity of mankind irrespective of what religious affiliation people may identify themselves by; “Allah” and Muslims are explicitly included.”

    How many Sikhs left in pakistan now? Will you give defending islam a break, enough, islam is a defective religion that turns the vast majority of it’s followers into koranimals?

    @Harbinder Singh: maybe you should get a break yourself and think twice about what you are saying. how can you say that islam is a defective religion?

    I made a trip down to the exhibition, not sure if any of you have been? If not, do make a trip down it is absolutely fantastic!!!!

    I really learned a lot, not just about Sikhism but about the importance of an open community that is accepting towards each other.

    The paintings and photographs really take you into the past.
