“I am sorry I failed.”
Such disputes involving Gurdwaras (Sikh places of worship) are all too common in North America. Many Gurdwaras are plagued with an over-emphasis on buildings, personal ambition, and finances. A visit to this Gurdwara’s website takes the visitor to a page asking for donations to keep it afloat. The Gurdwara is surrounded by such prestigious buildings, and yet what goes on within is such a disappointment.
It’s a sad state of affairs that even in the heart of the nation’s capitol, the Gurdwara hasn’t been spared from such a legal and financial mess. In most cases, it is a clash of personalities and egos that becomes the shame for the entire religious community.
