NEW YORK: Sikhs are set to get prayer facilities at John F Kennedy airport here. At a meeting convened last week for the community by New York City assemblyman Rory Lancman, the Port Authority agreed that there was a need for a prayer room for Sikh travellers.

Lancman, who represents the Queens borough said: "The Sikh community is growing in Queens and many Sikhs go back and forth to India regularly. Sikh travellers deserve a place to worship at JFK airport alongside those currently set aside for other faiths."
