Congressmen want Obama to visit Gurudwara before term ends
A bipartisan group of 20 US lawmakers has called on President Barack Obama to visit a Gurudwara before he leaves office in January next year, in an attempt to raise awareness about Sikhs in America.
“We write to you on behalf of Sikh Americans to visit a gurudwara before your term ends,” said the 20 lawmakers in a letter to Obama. “Your visit would bring attention to the Sikh-Americans identity and help to eschew the hate which has been directed to the community. it would also demonstrate that diversity is the bedrock of America’s strength,” said the lawmakers who are members of the American Sikh Congressional Caucus, which is co-chaired by John Garamendi and Patrick Meehan.
