President Obama issues statement for Sikh festival

Catholic World News - November 18, 2013

President Barack Obama has issued a statement for the festival of the birth of Guru Nanak (1469-1539), the founder of Sikhism.

“This sacred time is an occasion to reflect on Guru Nanak’s timeless teachings and the principles that are at the heart of Sikhism, including the equality of all human beings, the pluralism we cherish in diverse societies, and the compassion we owe one another,” the president said. “Here in the United States, we’re grateful to the many Sikh Americans who give life to these values and enrich our country every day, reminding us that these shared principles are not only at the heart of the Sikh faith, they are central to who we are as Americans.”
