He informed the participants that the Club Management had in line with the desire of the club patron/President Manoj Sinha, Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir initiated a regular social outreach to various sections and communities. The Club had organised Eid, Diwali, Gurpurab events along with other meaningful interactions through exhibitions and symposiums which had been widely appreciated by the society.

“What makes our Sikh community stand out is their strong community value structure and organisational efficiency even though they are a small percentage of the population and are only around 2 percent in Jammu and Kashmir and the same in India. Despite this, their valor and bravery has earned them a healthy 8 percent representation in the Indian Army. And their humanitarian services make them the most visible community in any crisis.”
