The new team at the Malaysian Sikh Education Aid Fund (MSEAF), after a recent brainstorming session on their way forward, huddled together to express their support for the #MerdekaDayShiningTurban campaign.
On 31 Aug 2018), MSEAF will don the turban with pride as Malaysia celebrates its 61st Merdeka Day or Independence Day.
“We are delighted to join this campaign,” MSEAF president Amarjit Singh Deo told Asia Samachar.
MSEAF joins other Sikhs organisations and gurdwaras that have come forward to voice their active support for the campaign launched by Asia Samachar. They include Gurdwara Sahib Taiping, Wadda Gurdwara Sahib Penang, Gurdwara Sahib Putra Heights, Gurdwara Sahib Kuantan and Gurdwara Sahib Seremban.
What is this campaign all about? Simple. On Merdeka Day, wear a turban with pride. If you’re already a turban wearing Sikh, then give it a shine. You figure it out how! If you don’t normally wear a turban, then brave yourself. Join the #MerdekaDayShiningTurban by donning a turban.
Sikhs have played a prominent and visible role in the making of Malaya, and later, Malaysia. The campaign is to continue that spirit by making the Sikh presence felt by getting the community members to don the turban.
Let us join the #MerdekaDayShiningTurban campaign. Let’s rock the country with the shining turban!
