US Sikhs have met with White House representative over the issue of evacuation of Afghanistan Sikhs and Hindus.
Dr Rajwant Singh, co-founder of the National Sikh Campaign (NSC) and chairman of the Sikh Council on Religion and Education, along with Gurwin Singh Ahuja, co-founder of the NSC, apprised key White House officials of the Sikh community’s concerns about the fallout of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“We conveyed that the Sikh community will be ready to assist the Biden administration if the Sikhs and Hindus are evacuated to the US. We are thankful to the Indian Government for stepping in and evacuating the first batch of Sikhs and Hindus from Afghanistan. We would like the American troops to assist the Sikhs to be evacuated from the Kabul airport as the Indian Air Force is ready for the task.”
