An Indian Sikh merchant, Sukhpal Singh Bedi, has donated his 900 square foot land for the construction of a mosque in celebration of Babar Guru Nanak’s 550th birthday and Pakistan’s inauguration of Karatarpur corridor.He handed over the documents of the land to Zahir Farooqui, the Nagar Panchayat Chairman. Farooqui thanked Bedi on behalf of the Muslim community for his gracious act.
Bedi hoped that his gesture will foster the communal union in the area and said that the gesture is a tribute to Baba Guru Nanak’s teachings of peace and love. Bedis, originally hail from a town Bedian near Lahore, are the direct descendants of Baba Guru Nanak. He, therefore, felt more responsibility to make an example by following his teachings.
