On October 8, volunteers of Sikh Press Association and Basics of Sikhi organized a langar at the historic Jama Masjid in Amritsar.
Close to 400 people including madrassa students, Sikhs, Christians, and labourers of various faiths were served food that was prepared in the community kitchen on the rooftop of the mosque.
For Jasjit Singh of Basics of Sikhi, it was overwhelming to see lines of religion blur and economic prejudices shatter along the food mile.
As many continue to fight over beef or no beef, Sikhs have shown the world how food can be used to unify different communities.
It is estimated that ordinarily at langar six million meals are distributed every day around the world.
