Turban Tying Event

Jakara Movement Misl MN with help from Sikh Society of Minnesota, SALDEF and Surat Initiative had a booth at the State Capitol grounds on August 16th. With over 20,000 people in attendance the booth spread awareness about Sikhs by tying Turbans on over 300 people. This was all possible because of the amazing volunteers and Waheguru's kirpa (God's blessing). Those who got their turban tied said on multiple occasions that the moment the turban was tied a new sense of pride came from within (even if they didn’t know much about Sikhi). Our volunteers taught the many guests of the event who Sikh's are, the importance of the 5 articles of faith along with discussing  Turban Myths and misconceptions of Sikhs. Many people were impressed by the uniqueness of Sikh culture and left with vast knowledge. They gave a lot of respect to the volunteers who were already "naturally" wearing turbans even more, by calling them "Sardaar ji". Sikhs of Minnesota were very grateful to participate in this celebration promoting Sikh awareness which was never done here before at such a high scale.
