US Sikhs Condoles Death of Pope John Paul II


Comments Email this Article

    The World Sikh Council - America Region (WSC-AR), on behalf of the United States Sikh community, expresses it condolences on the death of Pope John Paul II. The Pope dedicated his life to promoting peace with justice, and increased inter-religious dialogue among the religions of the world.

    Mr. Amolak Singh, Chairperson of WSC-AR remarked, "Pope John Paul II was a beacon of hope and joy for millions of Catholics and other people of faith in the world. He will continue to be a source of inspiration for generations to come."

    Dr. Anahat Kaur, Vice-Chairperson of WSC-AR added, "Pope John Paul II was one of the world's leading champions for interfaith understanding. He brought together religious leaders from across the world to commit themselves to peace and justice. With his vision and dedication, the day when people of faith will view people of other faiths as being partners in faith rather than in competition with each other to save souls, is not far."

    The WSC-AR reaches out in prayer to the Roman Catholic community across the world in this hour of grief and expresses its deepest condolences to the Vatican on the passing away of this great soul.
