Sikhs Show Solidarity After Manchester Attack #WATWB

Compassion is a spiritual quality that is unique to mankind. The ability to see the suffering of others and take actions to help alleviate that suffering is central belief of Sikhism. This noble human trait is something that’s practiced by Sikhs the world over.

Just after the Manchester attack on May 22, the Sikh community opened its doors to those caught up in the Manchester terror attack.

From taxi driver Mann Singh and volunteers from Birmingham, to local gurdwaras, members of the Sikh community were at hand to offer transport, food, water and shelter as people struggled to come to terms with the Monday terror attack in Manchester.

Members of the community with placards reading “I Love MCR” were among the most conspicuous in Tuesday evening’s vigil in Manchester, attended by thousands of people mourning the 22 killed in the Manchester Arena blast.

Names and addresses of four gurdwaras near the area which offered shelter and food to anyone in need were retweeted. Sikh drivers switched off their taxi meters on Monday night, transporting many people in panic to their homes or hospitals.


The Sikh community has historically been one people in need could turn to and they did just that earlier this week, as well.
