Following the attack on the Guru Arjan Dev Gurdwara in Derby on Monday 25th May, Faiths United has issued the following statement:

“It is with a heavy heart that we learned of the attack against Guru Arjan Dev Gurdwara in Derby. The Gurdwara has been an embodiment of compassion during this time of crisis, providing hundreds of meals each day for front-line workers.

Consisting of faith leaders all over the UK, Faiths United members speak with one voice to condemn all forms of violence and denounce rhetoric inciting hatred against members of specific religions and faith communities. This is a message that we have shared with the leaders of the Guru Arjan Dev Gurdwara through Faiths United member, Gurdwara Aid.

At this time, we stand in solidarity with the members of the Sikh community and offer our heartfelt condolences and sincerest prayers for healing and consolation.”
