On the occasion of World Sikh Organization’s first anniversary, I deem it a privilege as well as a duty to express my gratitude to all those who have worked tirelessly to make it the foremost organization of the Sikh nation. It was natural for the organization to face difficulties, obstructions and hostile pressures especially in the context of bitter opposition by the Government of India.

Despite these pulls and pressures, it is heartening to note that the organization has made a steady progress. Still much ground needs to be covered. Every Sikh has to be persuaded to become its member and make a meaningful and constructive contribution so that the organization develops into the most powerful voice of the Sikhs. I clearly visualize the historic role that this great organization is destined to play in shaping a glorious future for the Sikhs and in translating into reality the dreams of enjoying the ‘glow of freedom.’ With all the humility at my command I appeal to each and every Sikh to extend every possible cooperation to this organization so that we may also live with honor and dignity. Didar Singh Bains President World Sikh Organization.
